Went for dinner only because every other place was booked so I guess because we could just walk in should have told us something. Food just very less than average disappointing for Paris. The atmosphere was nice and pleasant but the service was barely average.

Great location, and OK reception experience. That's the good bit. Our room 512 was extremely underwhelming, the shower door was off it's hinges and hanging dangerously, the shower taps were coming away from the wall. The in-room safe was broken and the whole room smelt damp......not surprising given the state of the bathroom. We were woken at 3.30am by a...

Was greeted by very helpful and friendly staff. Breakfast is delicious. Rooms are small but that's how they are in Europe I guess. Mini bar not stocked with that much variety of soft drinks. Otherwise a very enjoyable stay.

We booked a superior suite but would question whether this is a superior room? The room is clean but bathroom very tiny. The glass table top is cracked and sharp and despite supplying tea and coffee they do not supply bottled water which is fairly steep from the bar to make drinks with. We had to ask for a iron...

I spent 10 days here on business. Rooms are clean. Breakfast is overpriced for what you get. Not a wow but good enough. The workout facility is OK not great. Off the beaten path. Nice bar for drinks or snacks.

Overpriced and over rated considering the amount of money you are payingand the services provided in return (even by the low standards of Europe's hotels). The only advantage is the location, and they are using this advantage in the worst possible way.
