I am writing this review on behalf of my mother (who doesn't do computers!)
She recently had a girly weekend in Paris and stayed at this hotel after I spent many long hours looking for somewhere suitable for them to stay.
Thankfully, she came back full of praise for both the City and the Hotel.
They were booked into a superior twin room which was on the 1st floor with views onto the rear garden. The hotel has recently been renovated & the room certainly made the ladies say 'wow' when they entered. It had all the amenities you would expect, except it would seem - a kettle. Being typical english ladies, they would have liked to have a cup of tea after a hard day touring the city, but it wasn't to be.
The bathroom was a little small but perfectly functional.
The continental breakfast was excellent and set them up for a full day ahead.
The one thing though that really sets this hotel apart is it's fabulous staff. They were extremely helpful and gave my mum and her friend lots of helpful hints and ideas on where to eat, tips to get around town and other information to make their stay even better.
The hotel was very close to the Metro, which is very easy to use (and believe me, if my mum thought it was easy, then it REALLY must be!) A taxi rank is also close by.
However, one word of advice - as my mum and her friend made their way to the hotel from the Eurostar Terminal, two young women tried to grab her bag, so be on your guard if you plan on taking the Metro to and from your hotel. It would seem, they were targeted as they were tourists, too busy trying to work out where they were going than perhaps being on their guard. Thankfully, no harm was done and they made the decision to get a taxi back to the Eurostar on the return for approx 15euro.
All in all this was the perfect hotel as a base to explore the city and gets a big thumbs up and a recommendation from my mum!!
