As we were there for business we didn't have time to try the breakfasts or the bar. The room was 'Old World' and very clean but a little tired. The bathroom amenities were good. The location is outstanding. The service in as much as we used the facility was solid.

The location is great. Hotel has its original décor from the early 20th century, you can tell it was once amazing. Good concierge team and reception. Unfortunately they repeatedly had trouble getting our morning coffee order correct. The roof top terrace had perfect views. The room was light and airy with large windows. Bed was very comfortable.

We stayed here a few years ago and were very excited to come back. Unfortunately, the room and the facility has not really changed that much and, for the money, is in need of a visible refurbish. Dont get me wrong - concierge was terrific and very helpful, location cannot be beat, but the rooms are in need of upgrading... More

The room and service both at the desk, bar and room service was excellent. It is across the street from the Peninsula so the location is great. They also have a rooftop terrace with the same view as the Peninsula.

We had a jr suite. The room was elegant beyond anything I expected. The entire room was paneled and murals were painted on the paneling. The bathroom was pure luxury. I asked if it was possible, we would like a balcony, and of course a view if possible. I was given a balcony with a view of the Eiffel tower.... More

My husband and I stayed here in April (he was running the marathon) and it was just perfect. We arrived by taxi after a short trip from the station and were not disappointed- perfect beautiful old Parisian building with wood panelled walls and luxe furniture.
