What a pleasant surprise. The hotel was wonderful, with clean, good sized, and modern rooms. The staff were exceptional, extending their help throughout our stay with regard to directions and places to eat and see. The best surprise is that the hotel is steps from the Line 1 metro which is automated and works throughout all strikes, extending from Chateau Vincennes to the Arche de Triomphe. The neighborhood included an excellent chocolate shop, a fruit vendor with fresh juice, a brewpub, a good brasserie and multiple cafes, and an excellent patisserie. Thank you for a wonderful stay.
