We stayed 4 nights in a classic double room this hotel and it was perfect! The Marcel Proust theme makes it very unique and filled with character. The room is small but very clean, comfortable and well laid out with everything we needed. We loved the small luxurious details like plush towels, bathrobes, slippers and Nuxe Paris toiletries. The location is in a safe and quiet neighbourhood that is close to everything we wanted to see (walking distance or by metro). Hotel staff is very friendly and helpful with everything from restaurant recommendations to advice on taking the metro. We hope to stay at this hotel again in the future!

Lovely and clean hotel with friendly staff. We were really happy with our room. No disturbance from other guests. Received a questionnaire ahead of our stay which I completed. Part of the questionnaire asked if I wanted help with directions from the airport to the hotel, which I said yes. I never heard back from the hotel which made me wonder why I was given the questionnaire in the first place.
