Good location, very standard European hotel
Posted May 20, 2016
The location, which is less than a 10 min walk to the Louvre, was the best part of this hotel. There are many restaurants nearby, and much of Paris is accessible from the 1ème arrondissement, which is where this hotel is located. However, the room was small even by European standards, the bathroom even more so. I'm a small person and I found it difficult to wash my entire body in the shower. The shower head was wobbly, which made it even more difficult to manage. For the first few days of our stay, there was no air conditioning, even though it was sweltering inside the room and a nice, warm spring in Paris. Later on, the air conditioner was repaired, however, but the first few nights were quite uncomfortable. The bed was nice enough. We didn't bother with the offered breakfast, though, due to the variety of bakeries nearby. The majority of the staff was overall very helpful, especially with directions and taxis and other advice. We were able to store our luggage before we checked in, which was very nice. Overall, the location made the hotel worth it.
