PLEASE READ BEFORE YOU BOOK THIS HOTEL!!!!
The hotel lacks of several essential items which i consider any hotel of 3 stars should have, please read below:
1. The staff might have been nice, but there was only one staff during night times. So, if the staff was not in the reception, then we would be stuck outside. I would like to note that homeless people where everywhere outside the hotel. One time i was uncomfortably waiting for the staff to open the door while homeless person outside keep asking for money (not cool!).
2. No one help you with the luggage - need to carry it upstairs.
3. Hotel Room & bathroom:
3a. The hot water should randomly turn boiling hot, then very cold in the shower. Also - very little water pressure.
3b. The shower tub was extremely high, and almost fell trying to get in. My wife hurt her leg.
3c. No microwave, no mini fridge, no Ice maker in hotel, no coffee/tea pot in room.
3d. The room did not smell very clean according to my wife.
3e. There was only one outlet which i had to share with my wife (it was a battle).
4. Last - the pictures on the website are a bit deceiving as the room is not as nice as in the picture.
Comment from Hotel Management

Dear Sir Dave,
We thank you for your comments even though there are not quite what we usually expect from our 3 star hotel.
Regarding the door, this is for your own security that we check every person who wants to come into our property, this might create a little delay once upon a time.
Regarding the beggar(s) "not cool" you mention,showing a bit of compassion sometimes helps and this is not such a bad thing !
Next point, if you want two staff during the night, you need to book a 4 star hotel or more and even in 4 star hotel of our size, there is often only one person during the night...
Same remark about the luggage.
Regarding the bathroom, if something was wrong for you with it, we would have been happy to show you a different room !
If you had asked for the microwave, we would have microwaved your dish
If you had ask for the fridge, we usually place guest's items in the fridge of the kitchen.
We indeed not have ice maker in our hotel, but this is not standard amenity in Paris.
We offer coffee/tea in the Superior room only.
Our cleanning staff is doing his best to offer the best service every day !
We are a not a chain hotel, all our rooms are decorated differently, if you had told us, you could have chosen another room !
To sum up, I would say it is not forbidden in Paris to talk to the front desk staff !
