This hotel is not 5 star but is centrally located and very comfortable. I think the rating is 3. The hotel is very old and therefore quite quirky. Our room, facing the plaza is huge, more than enough room and I suspect much larger than we will have in our 5 star hotel in Paris. The bed was large and comfortable with good pillows that helped ensure a good sleep. While our room faced the street, the double glazing ensured there was no street noise. The heating was excellent, i understand there is no cooling so summer may be a problem but for us in May, heating was the necessity.
The hotel is within easy walking distance from the railway station, so there is no need for a taxi. Many restaurants and shops are nearby.
Our booking included breakfast which is continental in style, plenty of choice and more than adequate. You can only cope with so many extravagant hot buffets.
There is a small lift that allows you to get your bags up to your room, it is multi storey, about 5 I think but you are sure to want to walk the central staircase at least once, it is beautiful.
Staff are friendly and welcoming and spoke very good English which was helpful as we struggle with French. I am so sad I come from a mono lingual country! less
