All of the previous reviews commenting on the great location ,transport links good choice of restaurants within a 5 minute walk are totally accurate .Also (unlike a lot of hotels in Paris ) the reception desk were very helpful and were willing to phone restaurants and make reservations for us .
We expected the room to be small and it was .We were on the second floor and overlooked the courtyard -with the window open at night we found it quite noisy,I don't know if the building on the other side of the courtyard is a residence for Insead but we were woken by a very loud argument from a room on the other side of the courtyard (obviously nothing the Hotel can do about that ).
However the challenge was the bathroom which was beyond tiny .I reckon it was 4 feet from the back of the sink to the back wall .The sink was tiny with a shelf cunningly positioned so that every time I bent down I banged my head .The shower was the most entertaining feature -it was so small that twice i bumped in to the tap ,Once switching it off and the other turning the water to hot ! I know its all rather trivial but having paid for a superior room i expected something with room to swing a very small cat .I even asked reception if we had been given a standard room by mistake.
Hint-avoid room 27
