Fresh Breakfast and delightful Decor

The Color Design Hotel is very close to Faidherbe Chaligny Metro on line 8 with excellent connections to Nation for Line 6, and Bastille for lines 4 &1. The Breakfast room displays light natural stonework, white tables, and multi coloured glasses and clear Perspex chairs. Eggs can be boiled fresh to ones own liking in an individual egg basket in a container of simmering water. The Orange juice is automatically freshly squeezed into each glass, and sachets of varying strengths are inserted into the fresh coffee machine, there is of course the usual selection of ham and cheese and cereals and croissant etc. The thick duvet covered in white was very comfortable and warm, and there was a heated chrome towel rail in the en-suite shower room. A large screen TV and a chrome and glass table completed the furnishings, and although it was visually excellent in keeping with the modern design theme, I would have preferred a chair to the cylindrical grey plastic stool, as I am rather heavy. As an Author and Artist, my main reason for the visit was to refresh my knowledge of The Louvre, and the magnificent Architecture of Notre Dame, as well to enjoy the ambience of the City. I did take an excellent River cruise and I was impressed by the views of Paris from the 56th floor Observatory of the Montparnasse Tower.( the French Impressionists would have loved it) Also I can highly recommend The Alsace Restaurant in the Champs Elyseese Near the Arch de Triomphe (Fruits de la Mere). Sadly the Eiffel Tower was closed and patrolled by armed Guards, this may have been due also to the inclement weather, but the rain and wind does not detract from the appeal of Paris.

Comfortable Hotel for short break

Hotel suited us fine for a short stay of 2 nights. I wouldn't want to stay any longer as the room was small and had very little storage. There was some privacy issues with the bathroom also, which had no lock and the door was more of a plastic screen than a door so you could hear everything that was going on in there. Funniest safe I've ever seen! It was good that there was a safe but it wasn't secured to anything so you could just pick it up and walk away with it! It wasn't even heavy!! The shower was really good but the shower door needs to extend all the way across as the floor got very wet when the shower was running. There was also a square hole in the wall of the bathroom for some reason, it wasn't noticeable though when I put it back in place. We got the hotel on a deal on a booking website but if I had paid the advertised price of 235 euro a night (room only, no breakfast included) I would have felt a bit ripped off, maybe this is standard pricing for Paris but it does seem a lot for this hotel. The staff were nice, particularly Ronan who welcomed us on our first night. Location is good, five minute walk to the Metro and lots of cafes and bars nearby.

Lässt zum Wünschen übrig

Kleines Zimmer aber sauber und in ruhiger Lage. Das Bad hat viel Luft nach oben.

Hôtel moderne très agréable pour Paris

Lorsque je descends dans le 12ème, je retourne dans cet hôtel que j'apprécie : ambiance moderne, bon accueil, chambres bien tenues plutôt grandes pour un établissement parisien où les chambres sont parfois minuscules, bonne literie, Wi-Fi efficace ... bref, j'y retournerai si l'occasion s'en présente.

Preis/ Leistung eher enttäuschend...

Die Lage des Hotels Nähe der Metrostation macht viele der offensichtlichen Mängel wieder gut. Jedoch ist es schon fragwürdig ein Hotel zu diesem Preis zu finden bei dem es kaum möglich ist sich in der Dusche zu drehen. Ausserdem scheinen die Trennwände zwischen den Zimmern nicht viel mehr als Papier zu sein....selbst eine normal gesprochene Unterhaltung im Nachbarzimmer ist laut und deutlich zu verstehen. Sensible, anspruchsvoll Gäste sind hier sicherlich am falschen Platz.

Très bien

Insonorisation à améliorer, surtout la porte au 3ème étage après le couloir dehors, elle ferme très/trop fort et du coup, on entend ce bruit

Un papier par terre. Des écritures au stylo sur une étagère. Une odeur de tabac dans la chambre à cause de mégots jetés tout le long de la gouttière. À part cela, une bonne literie, un bon aménagement de la chambre et un personnel plutôt sympa.

Toista kertaa ja taso säilynyt. Pieni toimiva ja siisti huone. Hieman syrjässä, mutta metroasema lähellä ja kävellen pääsee mukavasti liikkumaan. Sivukadun varrella jossa kauppa ja pankkiautomaatti. Respan ihmiset auttavaisia, englanninkieli hallussa. Ainoa miinus oli käsisuihkun johto, joka rikki ja vesi suihkusi sinne ja tänne. WiFi toimi.
