We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights in mid-August. It says it’s a 4 star hotel, but it’s really closer to a 3, charging a 4 star price. We checked in at around 9 pm because our train got in late and the lady at the front desk didn’t seem too pleased about that. Here are some of the pros/cons:||Pros:|-Located close to the metro and the Galeries Lafayette Haussmann|-Mini fridge||Cons:|-Every time you leave the hotel, you have to return the key (an actual metal key) to them. When you come back, you ask for the key back. This is the first time I’ve ever heard of something like that and made it feel uncomfortable to come and go as we pleased|-Our room was right above the kitchen so we’d hear dishes clanging really early in the morning|-Walls are thin. We could hear whenever our neighbors turned on the shower|-The room is ridiculously small, even for Paris. There was barely any room for one luggage, let alone two|-Shower door is insufficient and water would get everywhere|-Bathroom is cramped||As you can see, the cons far outweigh the pros so I would definitely not recommend staying here.

As we all know there are thousands of Hotel rooms in Paris or any city centre for that matter, and it largely comes down to what you want/need and how much you are prepared to pay.||The balancing part of that equation that needs to be answered is a level of confidence that the Hotel matches those requirements and expectations before you book, simple..||So what we wanted was||A nice (I appreciate that is subjective) Hotel|Walking distance from the main tourist attractions but with public transportation close by|A safe area, ie not in the Red Light district|A budget of less than £150 a night|Quiet so we can get a decent sleep|Clean||Fairly basic but I would say more often than not this is hard to achieve. ||I would also say the breakfast is a mind boggling 7 euros which made me shiver and determined to venture out to one of Paris’s many patisseries. However it is probably the best value breakfast I’ve ever had, ample everything and worth double. It’s f I had to criticise the pastries were average then I remind myself it’s 7 euros and I can walk 250m to get some.||Throw in a super helpful receptionist team and this place has everything you could want or need for a city break.||Thank you||🐜
