We stayed in the Le Swann Hotel for one week to celebrate our 10th Anniversary in Paris and it had everything we needed for our stay. Coming from North America, it took a few minutes to remember how much smaller European hotel rooms can be, but with the armoire and extra little area for the suitcase rack, we had two full suitcases in the room and out of the way. It perfectly sufficient size and with the large bathroom, we had more then enough space for the two of us.
The hotel and the room itself was extremely clean. Not much else to say about it. I mean it really exceeded our standards in this regard. We weren't keen on the plastic drinking cups in the room that we don't think were getting replaced each day, but we used the wine glasses more then the plastic ones anyway.
This was by far the quietest hotel we have ever stayed in. In fact we were worried that the scooter and street noise would affect us as we faced the front of the hotel staying on the 6th floor, but once the balcony doors were shut and the blinds drawn, it was quiet and dark making it a completely relaxing stay.
Breakfast was great with great selections of breads, spreads, juices, coffees and cereals. There were a few nice cheeses each morning along with a few fresh cold cuts. For hot food, there were sausages, bacon, scrambled eggs and hard boiled eggs. A perfect start for the day.
Staff were more then helpful and answered any questions we had. English was not a problem and they helped with anything we needed.
Travelling around the City from this hotel was very easy. There were numerous Metro stations within a 5-8 minute walk but we used the Rome (2 Line) and Europe (3 Line) stations for our trip that got us everywhere we wanted to go. We also used the Metro to get to and from CDG airport. It took about 60 minutes from terminal to hotel door. Was completely easy to get to get to every touristy spot from this hotel. Was also about a 30 minute walk to the Moulin Rouge which we decided to walk home from one night.
We felt extremely safe in this part of town and found a small store 1 minute away where we could get snacks, food, wine, liquor, beer and anything we might need. Also a number of nice corner cafe's within a couple of minutes. There wasn't much that wasn't within a 5 minute walk. less
