This is a difficult review to write...
Firstly, the staff were amazing! They knew my name and were incredibly friendly, always greeting the other guests. Probably the best staff I have encountered in a hotel, especially in Paris.
The rooms were okay, probably not quite as good as the images made out and they were very noisy - you could hear every noise from other rooms, the corridor etc.
My biggest issue was, and it came after a 100km cycle ride when I was tired, the key to my room would not work. Whilst the staff tried to help, the key would just not open the door and their solution was that I sleep on the sofa in another hotel's reception. Really?! This place is not cheap (maybe cheaper by Paris standards) but to pay for a hotel room and sleep in reception is not really what I was hoping for.
Eventually, Regis was extremely helpful and managed to force the lock open which I was thankful for but this took over two hours and I finally got in at almost 2am!
I cannot fault the hotel, let me stress that, but I cannot help look back negatively at the key situation.
