I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights in October 2016 on a weekend trip to Paris. In terms of location it is well placed in the 8th arrondissement - close to metro stops served by lines 2 and 3, as well as the St Lazare station which has even more connections. It is equally close to the Opera and to Boulevard Haussmann, where there are many large department stores. In short, it is centrally located and safe
The hotel itself is fairly modern inside, well furnished and functional. Yes, the rooms are fairly small, but not the worst. We had a standard room and this came with a safe, an nespresso machine, a good size desk, a decent closet, bathrobes, etc.
2 main downsides were as follows: 1. The bathrooms. While they are very modern and well equipped, the door was a frosted glass sliding door (which wasn't that frosted so you could see right through from either side). Not a problem if you are a lone traveller or a travelling with someone you are very comfortable with, but I would not recommend this for instance to a couple on a their first romantic getaway! Steam from the shower, odours and sounds from the bathroom are pretty much unavoidable...just something to bear in mind. Secondly, there is double glazing but even when closed there is still some noise from teh main street. We had a street facing room with a balcony onto Rue Constantinople. It didn't bother me too much but if you are a light sleeper, ask for a quieter room.
Everything else was fine - we were well received at check in (early check was possible about 2 hours ahead of time), concierge(s) spoke English, breakfast was satisfactory for a 4-star hotel (good buffet but nothing out of the ordinary).
Went as a couple and I can recommend it for practical location, pleasant service and value for money compared to nearby places (though we booked via Hotwire). Would not suggest the standard room for more than a weekend or if travelling with big bags as room space was limited. less
