We arrived to a nice receptionist then after clambering up three flights if stairs, opened the door still holding the door knob in my hand, the wardrobe was hopeless, only one hanger, and a screwed up blanket inside, the bathroom, glass door never fitted the frame leaving the door slightly open. Then after looking for the cups for a drink found out that they do not provide such luxury and have to purchase one. What was good? The location, my view poor and will never return.
Location of this little hotel is excellent - just off the Arc de Triomphe, and the salubrious Ave Foch. You can walk to all the major tourist sights from here. The area itself is quiet, with relatively fewer restaurants in close vicinity, though in Paris you are never far from food and drink and I found a lovely little corner nearby equipped with a boulangerie, chacuterie, italian pizzeria and delicatessen, french bistro and fresh pasta takeaway joint , all serving yummy stuff. The hotel is elderly and shabby but clean and very quaint - you feel like you are in a 1940s movie. No elevator so be ready for a climb up the spiral stairs, but the young man on duty when I arrived very obligingly helped me with my bag. I would not recommend the single rooms, mine was claustrophobically small, but the junior suite I moved into subsequently was spacious and furnished with interesting period furniture. A generous continental breakfast, served at a communal dining table where I witnessed the French breakfast habit of dipping everything from pain au chocolate to buttered baguette into a milky coffee. The service was friendly, and unobtrusive, with a waft of colonial Africa as the maid carried a load of fresh linen up the stairs balanced cleverly on her head! All in all, excellent value for money given the very central location.
