Had a short break in Paris and this was a great spot to be in, right beside the metro that takes you straight in to the Arc De Triomphe and elsewhere! Rooftop bar is good but I’d almost say it closes too early but the club downstairs stays open until 2 am

J’ai eu un peux de mal la première journée car notre chambre ne ressemblais pas à ce que l’on a pu voir sur les photo, notre chambre était sale et nous avons pas de serviette à disposition, pas de tapis de douche pour s’essuyer les pieds et nous avons été obligés de faire nos lit nous meme, autrement l’établissement était bien placer avec une bonne ambiance.

Checkin long... Nous avons demandé un lit parapluie, on nous a répondu qu’ils allaient se renseigner de la disponibilité et personne ne nous a tenu informés. Nous sommes revenus après notre balade nocturne vers minuit, trois employés à la réception, seulement 2 comptoirs ouverts et personne pour nous renseigner sur notre demande. Nous sommes remontés à la chambre, notre fils de 16mois dormira donc sur un matelas par terre

Das ist kein Hotel sondern ein Hostel oder Jugendherberge. Die Bettleintücher werden nicht ausgewechselt. WC Papier bekommt man je 1 Rolle und nur auf Verlangen. Sehr unsauber, unhöfliches Personal. Kein Föhn oder Badetücher im Zimmer. Unglaublich, das dieses Hotel ein 5 Stern Hotel ist. Nicht weiter zu empfehlen.

Cons: Fenster konnte nicht geöffnet werden, da es kaputt war. Nachttisch war ungebrauchbar, da es ebenfalls kaputt war.
Im grossen und ganzen ein cooles Hostel. Es fand eine Dachterrassenparty statt während unseres Aufenthaltes. Jedoch wurde nicht richtig geputzt im Badezimmer und Fenster und Nachttisch waren kaputt. Wir haben zudem nicht das Zimmer gekriegt, welches auf dem Bild im Internet angezeigt wurde.
