1:We were upgraded to the executive room (506) and it was a 5-star room! In Front of the street, no noise (only the tram but romantic!), 50-channel TV, cabin shower, superb heat (for February in Paris with 0,-5, most important), very modern design, carpet,etc.
2:The neighborhood "tre chic", very quiet and absolutely safe (although not in centre), metro and tram station 1 min. away (20' to Eiffel Tower, 15' to Notre Dame, 20' to Louvre Museum and 25' to Triumph Arch- use the metro,is very very convenient), bakery and restaurants (Auto Passion and opposite brasserie recommended!) just outside, no traffic. For the prices of Paris generally (very expensive everything for average tourists),the hotel is the best choice!
Nothing important. Only an electricity supply (socket) by the bed needed (for mobiles mainly), and a better finishing of the bath (although clean). Also (for anybody interested - not me in my holidays,at home yes) the gym is closed.
