            Τhe room service and everyone in the reception were very helpful.The room was very comfortable and clean.

            the breakfast could be slightly better and in my room there was a little bit difficult to stabilize the hot or cold water in the bath.

            Lovely hotel, less than a minute off the Champs Elysees. The staff spoke excellent English when my French wasn't up to the job. Room was clean and decorated to a very high standard. Only minor negative was the heating, which although you have a control switch in your room, we couldn't get it cool enough to be comfortable - which was a surprise in March. We booked on a room only basis so I can't comment on the breakfast. Thoroughly lovely and highly recommended - we will definitely return.

            location

            The breakfast room staff, as they told us that we were not included the buffet breakfast on the last day we stayed. They charged us since the first day, but no one notified us. No wifi in the room.

            The concierge, staff, service....brilliant.

            The room was way too warm - even trying to adjust the temperature didn't work but we could have just asked, I suppose. We sorted it by opening the balconette window which was fine. Complementary shampoo/conditioner combo was just awful though :)

            It was very near the centre and the rooms were very nicely decorated as was the the rest of the hotel.

            Night staff was a bit unfriendly and the room service wasn't very good, we didn't have much choice from the evening menu as they had nothing left, we also ordered 2 healthy breakfasts and got unhealthy ones instead.

            Courteous, professional staff. Central location.Comfortable plush rooms.

            No tea/coffee making facilities or indeed mini-bar in the room which is surprising giving the standard of the hotel.

            1) Location - just a block from very busy and noisy Champes Elysses, but very quiet street. 2)My room was very quiet with wonderful view of Efel Tower. 3) Stuff was warm and friendly. 4) Nice size room and bathroom

            Breakfeast in a hotel was a bit expensive, but with Champess Elysees just blocl away it was cheaper and more fun to eat at one of the cafes/restaurants there- many open early.

            Very clean room. Also, bed was quite firm and very wide. Vallet parking is very useful for the driver in Paris. Location of the hotel is very close to the centre of Paris. For the service we can get, room fair looks reasonable.

            Buffet breakfast was ok. Should more fuit was available, it was better.

            The position adjacent to the Champs-Elysees is excellent.

            Nothing.
