Funky and Comfotable
Posted Apr 15, 2015
We received a warm reception our first night. I was initially surprised by the overall impression of the hotel, in particular the carpets. I thought they were dirty, my daughter thinks they were just old and had those odd marks often left when carpets are cleaned. In any event, that was my only complaint throughout our six day stay. Reception staff was always helpful, the beds were comfortable, and the bathroom was great. The room (Junior Suite, 4th fl) looks out on the street but there was no street noise oat night to disturb your sleep. All windows opened which is a big plus for me. It was a generous size.
Breakfast was included in our room rate and was a typical French buffet breakfast with bread, cheese, yogurt, cold meats, scrambled eggs, etc. The quality was excellent but don't expect the variety of the Easter buffet at the Hilton. Extra coffee was always available on request.
I said my only quibble was about the carpets - not quite true. We had two beds pushed together to make one or two beds as the case may be. If you are using them as singles, they are narrowl, but unless you flail about a lot you quickly get used to them.
Location was excellent - 1/2 block from Le Bon Marche, 2 blocks from Sevres-Babylone Metro( very convenient Metro stop.
Good value for the money. I would recommend it highly to anyone.

We would like to thank you for reviewing your stay at LE Placide.
We are glad to read you enjoy your stay here.
All our carpets are quite new (1year) , but unfortuanely cleaning products are strong and can damage it.
As you noticed it, we offer a very good quality of products during our breakfast. Variety is not corresponding to Hilton standards but we try to avoid waste.
That is true Le Placide is a very good base to visit Paris, with 3 subway lines closed from the hotel, lot of shops and restaurants.
Looking forward to welcome you again in our establishment.
