We had a really enjoyable stay here. The hotel was just far away from the hustle and bustle of the tower area, but close enough to make it an easy short walk to it. The staff were excellent. They were helpful and polite without being intrusive. I'm alright at French, but when I hit my limits, they all spoke perfect English, which was really appreciated. My fiancé can't speak a word of French, but they were more than happy to speak to her in English from the start when she spoke to them. I got the impression that the staff were genuinely nice people who wanted to help you enjoy your time in their city. I should also note that the air-con in the room is very effective and easy to adjust to your comfort.
The Passy Metro stop is very nearby and offers easy access all over Paris. There’s a marvelous (and peaceful) view of the tower from the Pont de Bir-Hakeim, around 10 mins walk away. It's a really interesting bridge in its own right, with a beautiful old raised metal viaduct carrying the metro above. We took croissants here from a bakery near the hotel for breakfast. There was barely anyone around and it was one of the highlights of our trip. We also took a cruise, with Champagne, with Vedettes de Paris from near the bridge. We didn't have to fight the crowds to get a good seat on top of the boat and it looked more comfortable than the others that we passed.
This was a very special trip for us because it's when I proposed to my fiancé. The stress free experience with the hotel, and its easy access to all the sites made this trip extra special. I'd 100% recommend this hotel and will definitely stay here again. less

Dear Christophe Blades,
Thank you for taking the time to write a review about your experience at our property.
Congratulations for your engagement!
We are happy to read that your special romantic trip to Paris went well. All the team is always keen on making special occasion trip going smooth.
As mentioned, Bir-Hakeim bridge is quite unique in Paris. Its metal structure combined to stones, welcomes Metro line, a car and a walking pavement on separate levels. It is also a most romantic spot for pictures with Eiffel Tower and Seine river on the back.
We shall be pleased to welcome you again, for honeymoon trip maybe?
