One of the busy, businessey avenues radiating out from the [node:168774], near to prime shopping territory by day, calm at night. Charles de Gaulle Etoile metro station provides excellent transport connections for all over the city.
After the flamboyance of the facade, the bedrooms are relatively sober, but those I visited were an excellent size for the price. Curvaceous Art Nouveau bedheads, bedside tables and chairs keep up the period mood, while the rooms have been brought up to date with air conditioning, soothing brown and beige fabrics and stylised floral motif wallpapers behind the beds, which are good quality though very firm. Bathrooms are functional but clean and spacious.
The open-plan lounge-cum-reception area is eclectically furnished and just an incey bit glitzy, corridors are recently re-wallpapered and there's a small patio at the rear.
