“Great value for the money - clean - good location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2012

This BW is located very close to all sights, to the starting point of the "L'open tour" hop-on hop-off bus tours and to great shopping areas at the grat boulevards. Its rooms are not big, but newly renovated, very clean and equipped with safe and a/c (both important in Paris). Breakfast was included and quite good. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful, the receptionists even spoke English quite well. The only minus is parking - big garages are close by but expensive (€ 32/ day).

I recently had occasion to spend a Saturday night in Paris. Unfortunately this was an unplanned and sudden trip and I had literally no luggage, change of clothing or toiletries. No worries I tjhought - I'll pick up what little I needed once there. However I was late getting to the city and my main preoccupation was finding somewhere to stay.
Needless to say I did not manage to get anything in the way of supplies and ended up very late at night (around 02.00 local time) trudging around Chatelet and the Opera House area with nothing booked or even tentatively arranged.
I tried a couple of the major hotels including the intercontinental and the Westin but there was no room at the Inn! Gasping with thirst I came across an 'English Pub' where over a welcome drink the barman was able to direct me to a small hotel virtually opposite.
The hotel though tucked away is very close to the major attractions near the river including the place du Concord, Opera, Hotel de Ville and the Pompidou Centre only a 15 minute walk away. I was greeted by a wary night porter who once assured I was not a drunkard or potential robber - was extremely helpful and polite and quickly checked me in while telling me about the facilities available in the room and hotel generally.
The room was small but more than adequate and tastefully decorated with plenty of storage space, a small minibar containing some wine, beers and a selection of non-alcoholic drinks; a wall mounted TV which televised most European Channels including BBC1 and 2. Air-conditioned with personalised thermostatic control, a small writing bureau, and a comfortable queen sized bed.
The room was en-suite with what appeared to be a newly decorated and spotlessly clean bathroom. Shower/bath, toilet, sink, heated towel rail as standard with a hand held hair dryer and selection of toiletries also provided. There was a more than ample supply of bath towels/mats etc..Each guest is provided with WiFi connection details and there are modern flat screen terminals available for guests to use in the reception area. Breakfast was included in the nightly rate, served in a small but cozy dinning area in the central atria of the hotel beside the reception area lit during the day by way of a large skylight. Continental breakfast was served from 0700 until late morning and included a good selection of bread, pastries, cold meats, cheese, hard or soft boiled eggs, cereal, mixed fruits and a selection of fruit juices and coffee.
There was a variety of information available about the area around the hotel and sightseeing opportunities. The hotel staff were all very friendly, courteous and eager to assist in anyway they were able.
The hotel was reasonably priced at around £140 per night given it's central location and facilities. I would happily recommend this hotel as a base to explore the centre of what is a notoriously expensive city and is good value for money given it's prime location.

Stayed for 5 nights on our July 2012 Paris trip. Perfect hotel albeit the public areas being small. Well located. Room and bed were comfortable. Easily adjustable electronic air conditioning controls. Friendly staff. Easy access to the airport by Roissybus (10 Euro fare). Only con is that rooms were not well insulated for sound. However, the hotel is located in a relatively quiet area.

My partner and i absolutely loved the hotel for the 6 nights that we stayed here. It is situated in an ideal location, 2 minutes from a metro and right in the heart of the shopping area of Paris. The staff were extremely friendly, very helpful and always had a smile on their faces, even when we came back late one night at 2am, they were happy to see us. It was also a benefit that the hotel staff were multi-lingual as it's sometimes difficult to keep up the speaking in French 24 hours a day. We would definitely stay here again! Our only downside was that the hotel did not serve us a cooked breakfast and, although there was a large variety of food to choose from, I would've killed for a rasher of bacon or a sausage by the end of the week. Also, we had no drawers in our room and therefore had no where to place our items of clothing other than the coat-hangers that hung in the wardrobe. An iron in each room would also have been beneficial rather than having to get dressed and go downstairs to borrow an iron from reception. Other than that, our stay was marvellous and i would recommend this hotel to anyone thinking of staying here.

A very good three star hotel. From motherly Daisy at reception to excellent breakfast and well furnished, comfortable rooms and bathrooms, it is so welcoming. Ideally placed for the best of shops, restaurants and public transport, this is an optimum hotel, An easy walk through the Madeleine and Concorde to the Champs Elysees and Tuileries or perhaps Rue St Honore (boutique shops) to the Palais Royale for lunch. Adjacent, in Rue Arcade is Pompei, one of the best Italians in which we have eaten. On the way, on the right, in Passage Puteaux is the quirky Boutique des Vins. Le patron expects some sophistication but, having passed the interrogation, he will share his good Margaux at E5 a glass . The other way leads immediately to the Haussmann. Towards Printemps there is Brasserie Triadou Haussmann, stuffed out with Parisiens, who know what is good about the menu.

Room Tip: We took ground floor rooms 601 & 603. Very quiet, at the back.
