The hotel is in a good location, a quiet street only five minutes from the north end of champs elysees/arc d' triumph and the Charles du Galle Etoile Metro station.
The rooms were very clean and with a modern decor. The bathroom was new but slightly on the small side. We had paid for a superior room which was a good size (sufficient for a triple) but the standard rooms are smaller (although this i believe is a trait of Parisian hotel rooms).
The standard and superior rooms have identical decor and therefore if you're only there for a couple days we would recommend saving some money (about EUR 20 p/night or so) and staying in a standard room (unless you’re spending a lot of time in the room or are a bit claustrophobic!).
Flat screen tv in the rooms, but English channels are limited to BBC news and CNN.
The hotel has 6 floors, with rooms ending 01,02,03 being street facing (we believe). Our room faced an internal wall, which was quiet, although obviously it had no view.
There was one problem with the shower in our room - we had a bath with overhead shower, which had no pressure and only dripped water out when we put it on. On reporting this problem to the night manager, we were told that there were no other superior rooms available that evening and to check tomorrow. We checked a standard room, which had a shower cubicle (not a bath) and this seemed to have much better pressure, although the room was much smaller.
The following morning we reported the problem to the front desk (a different person) who seemed a little disinterested in resolving the shower issue. On returning to the hotel after a day sightseeing we were informed that the shower was fixed. The pressure was better, although still not as good as that in the standard room we had tried the night before. By this point we felt there was no point in changing room as we only had one day left.
Overall the hotel is nice, the location is good. However for the money we paid for a superior room we were a tad disappointed. Additionally, we were unimpressed at the inability, disinterest/service received from two of the three front desk staff we encountered during our stay (the last person on our final day was much more helpful, polite and engaging, as one would expect from fonrt desk staff). If the shower issue and staff service had been better, we’d have given this hotel 5/5, as its location, room décor and cleaniness and value for money would make it a great place to stay in Paris.
