The location of the hotel is great - really just meters from Champs-Elysees and Arc de Triomphe as well as Lido de Paris and all the shops and restaurants on the famous avenue! The service is very good as well - the concierge loaded a luggage trolley with our suitcases as soon as we got out of the taxi and they checked us in immediately and let us leave our suitcases at the front desk until we could access our rooms because we were early. Everybody was very accomodating all the time. The decor was nice and there was a bathroom in which you could take a shower or a bath so if it is difficult for you to enter bathtubs there is another option for a shower. There are also grocery shops and pharmacies nearby. The internet was working well as well and the hotel was very clean. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay at the hotel very much!
The hotel is very nice but is quite old, one of our rooms had a very strong air freshener smell and we had to open the windows a couple of times, but we really enjoyed our stay overall. There was no hot water kettle or coffee/tea in the room.
It was traditional classic French, which is what we wanted. Staff were very friendly. Room was clean and great shower. Superb location for champs elysee and buzz of the city.
The bar area was very disappointing, verging on boring. We went for drinks on the evening of my wife's birthday, it was happy hour but the barman tried to charge full price...18 euro for a glass of champagne!! When I challenged him his excuse was that I had not told him I wanted to pay happy hour....!? Had to take own luggage up to room after a long day travelling. It's the little things that seemed to be missing that makes me think this should be 4 star...it just didnt have that edge needed for 5 star.
Nice location, nice room
No complementary water bottles
Cozy and family like atmosphere, very welcoming and supportive hotel staff Brilliant location, very central but quiet, plenty of sightseeing nearby with walking distance to major sights of Paris. Overall great stay for a weekend!
Cleanness, and it's missing some items that 5 star hotels should have.
