The hotel looked just like the photos I was extremely impressed with the design of it, it was modern and felt expensive. The staff were helpful, we asked for an iron and they provided us with one straight away and they didn't even need a deposit.
When I read reviews before we left, a lot of people mentioned how small the room is, even though it is quite small, I felt they made use of the space very well. The only downside was there was no where to put the suitcases so that did take up a lot of space.
The area of the hotel is perfect, lots of options for restaurants and cafes. We decided not to pay for breakfast at the hotel we preferred eating out for breakfast to explore, and I don't regret that decision. Theres a metro station local and its super cheap to get to local attractions such as the Eiffel Tower; it's around 1.50 euros for a single, and you use that single until you get off, I think the Eiffel tower was roughly the 7th or 8th stop and it only cost that price. We also got the train from the airport (Charles De Gaulle) and this was 10.60 euros each and took around 30-40 mins. Overall I think its great value for money!
However, upon arrival; we got to the hotel around 8pm, I had selected to pay now rather than at the property and when we got there they said I then had to pay for the hotel (booked through booking.com). In my head I thought I had already paid so I was extremely annoyed this wasn't the case, it was a good job I took my card with me because I didn't have enough euros on me to cover the cost of the hotel and explore Paris. They could of offered to deal with it in the morning or at least let us settle first, I was extremely disappointed by this as in the situation the man at reception was not helpful, they already had my bank details because they had a pre-authorisation charge on my account so it wasn't like they couldn't get the money for the room, but he wouldn't give us our room key until we paid.
The fact there wasnt any storage space in the room for luggage wasn't ideal however I wouldn't not stay at this hotel again because of that. Also, if they hadn't messed up the payment I would easily give them a 5 rating but because of that i'm giving them a 4. less
