The rooms are on the small side, but arranged well. The staff was always helpful -- welcoming and cheerful. Breakfasts were nothing out of the ordinary but, once again, the breakfast staff was always ready with a welcoming smile. For me, the most important thing was that the hotel was formerly the apartment building which held Marcel Proust's last residence, and in which he died. To my surprise, parking was easier to find in this neighborhood than I had feared. Although the metro stop is only a few short blocks away, I would have been a bit happier if it were not such a long walk from Etoile. All of its shortcomings, however, were compensated by the incredible view of the Eiffel Tower framed by the adjacent buildings almost as soon as one stepped out of the hotel door.
