First time to travel solo to Paris & this hotel has made a lot of difference in my vacation. Aside from its good location the staff was very friendly & would always have time to chat a bit and made me feel so welcome.

Lovely old hotel. Rooms are top quality and impeccably clean. Just a block off Champs Ellyssee so very convenient. Hotel staff speak English and are very helpful/friendly. Go online to book to get great price and sign up for free breakfast (worth 25€ per person!). We will definitely come back here next visit!!

I didnt really know what to expect with the hotel, but I have to admit, it was nice. Very centrally located and cheaper than many around given it is fashion week. I would stay again! My room was well kept and the bed comfortable. The bathroom was newly redone and everything clean.
