                      Very stylish, great location, staff all really friendly and helpful.

                      Not much atmosphere - I would have liked the lobby bar to be more bustling.

                      Great staff, great room, great decor, great location. Porter was very nice and helped take my bags 50m up the street to the bus stop.

                      Carpets badly stained and spoilt appeal of the room. Breakfast and laundry service both excessively expensive.

                      Location is extremely good, very close to Opera. The building, the lobby, the bar, the decor in general is very impressive & attractive. Free & fast wi-fi available through the whole hotel.

                      I read some comments about spacious rooms, however the mine (n° 518) was very small, similar to those in the cheapest hotels (even assuming the standards of Paris). I hardly found a space to put my luggage so it would not block the way to toilet at night. Then, make sure to bring some water with you as a small bottle from minibar is 8,50 EUR. I cannot comment on breakfast at 29 EUR as I had a breakfast in the cafe in front. Overall at 192 EUR per night w/o breakfast it's somewhat between poor & fair deal.

                      + A decent 4 star hotel in the location ideal for shopping @Grands Magasins. + Rooms are comfortable, clean and in excellent maintenance condition.

                      - Service maids keep on entering the room even despite 'do not disturb sign' hanging outside - happened 3 times with different ones. - Rooms are too small, even executive ones. It's typical for Paris though - very few hotels could boast spacious rooms.

                      The hotels impressive decor, reflects genuine style, and is a cut above any other hotels I've stayed at in Paris at this price. I felt like I was staying in a very expensive hotel. The location is great for me, as Paris Nord is usually my entry spot, but with its position close to The Galleries it would be ideal for a shopping stay as well.

                      When we arrived we were told that our executive rooms had been upgraded to suits for free, so that's definitely a big plus! The staff at the reception has been very helpful, spoke good English. Rooms area cleaned properly, maids are very polite; fast room service. We really enjoyed our breakfast, which is not a very common case with Paris hotels even expensive ones.

                      The big nice lobby, the friendly service.

                      If you really want to find something negative it's the small rooms. However they are nice, clean and comfortable

                      Great location - short walk to Opera area, shops, cafes etc. and 20 minute walk to Gare du Nord (eurostar). Stylish rooms, quiet with very comfortable bed. Helpful staff recommended very good brasserie.

                      Thought the decor in the large reception area was abit over the top - the splendid building had been spoilt by the brashness of the red, black & gold paintwork & furniture - not to our taste but then we're not French!

                      Design of the hotel, meaning the colours and the style of the differing areas. The compactness and tidiness of the rooms and displays in the halls were fabulous.

                      The beakfast room in the basement and the gym if you could call it that.

                      The location was great, ideally for people who like shopping. Hotel staff was very kind and helpful, I really apprciate their excellent service in reception, special thanks to Marco for satisify our request for late check-out during the day of departure.

                      The only thing I don't like is the bathroom, I don't find place to hang the tower after use it...

                      Stylish, comfortable room. Pleasant breakfast room and staff. Good value for money.

                      No iron available. Very inconvenient for my husband whose shirt had creased during transit.

                      Excellent service. Welcoming, helpful and very professional. Unusual classy decor. Wonderful meal in hotel restaurant - excellent food sublime service. Good location. Lots of help from staff re transport, places to go etc.

                      We didnt have breakfast at the hotel - although reviews stated that it was wonderful - it is very pricey. We stayed at a high quality hotel in Rome last year - booked through Booked.net - and breakfast was incredible and included in price.
