Bit of a squeeze in a pod style cupboard . But in reality very functional. En suite just with the double bed the width of the pod. Climb over if you want out during the night !! Double electric blinds for a black out, surprisingly quiet, we had a good nights sleep. Bit like Far Eastern style pod rooms. We had a lovely view of the Eiffel Tower from our window. The bar/ lobby was a nice area to sit. Handy for Bercy and Gare de Lyon stations .
I was part of a group which had 5 rooms between 10 of us. 5 of us paid for a room on check in but when we tried to check out one guest was told his Apple Pay payment hadn't gone through and forced to pay again. He later checked his app which showed it had gone through both times. On arriving home I checked my credit card and found that I had also been charged twice, once on check in day and again when we checked out! I contacted them via Webchat and they agreed to refund the second charge, but due to exchange rate changes in the meantime I am still £2 out of pocket. Bizarrely the other issue we had was that they only seemed to have double beds. This was OK for the couples in the group (although the bed had walls on 3 sides meaning one person would have to climb over the other if they needed to go to the loo in the night) but caused issues for the 2 single men who had to share. They asked to switch to a twin room but were told that the hotel only had doubles. On the plus side the hotel is close to the station and the breakfast was good. Reasonable value for couples as long as you don't get charged twice, but no good if you are sharing with a friend.
This isn’t a scene if your coming to network but it did the trick for me. I very quickly and easily rode the train around during the strike and slept very well here. It’s quiet and they have blackout blinds.
