"Convenient Location - Nice Stay"
The hotel is located next to the convention center and the Metro #1 line is located on the same block. So very easy to get into many Paris tourist sites, but also just several stops away from the business district. There is a jazz club located inside the hotel for some added entertainment value. If it's important to you that the staff speaks English then they have you covered there. No issues with communication at all. I was located on an SPG floor- Room was clean. Bed Comfy.
"Very poor in this price bracket."
Check in was slow, they couldn't find my reservation and it took 10 minutes. The room is fine but faces internal and there is no view. Breakfast is included but I have to queue for 10mins while a single girl shows everyone to their table. Another girl is collecting the buffet tickets, and then standing around when she should also be showing people to their table to reduce the queue. The buffet has thimble sized glasses for juice and small side plates for food. When you go up to reload your plate and cutlery are snatched away and you have to go chase the waiter for fresh ones. I wasn't even offered coffee had to go to the other side of the room and ask for it. Bar prices are silly at 12 Euro for a beer. There is no coffee maker in room and the mini bar is empty. There are vending machines which sell soft drinks for 4 Euro. For the 340 Euro I paid to stay here it should be a lot better.
Staff is nice and patient. Breakfast is very good and with a lot of food, there is also the chef that prepare the omelette in front of you with the toppings that you prefer. Bed was slighlty too soft, but room is comfortable. There are slipers, iron and a very good hair dryer. Quality of shampoo, conditioner etc is good. Wifi is really well working and there is also the possibility to print from a pc in the corridor. They pay a lot of attention to security: I was locked out of my room because the electronic key stopped working, the cleaning woman refused to open me the door and I had to go to the reception, they asked me the ID to give me a new key but I had it into the room, therefore they called the security who came with me in the room, opened the door and checked my ID before giving me the new key. I found this very reassuring and professional.
"A good experience"
I booked through an agency who said the Meridien was one of their recommended hotels, I checked Trip Adviser and noted the mixed reviews. I wanted a hotel with parking and decided to take the risk. Tuesday and Wednesday. I was really pleased with the location, obviously recently refurbished and a good style. The receptionist was very friendly and helpful, as were all the staff. Breakfast was included with my booking and there was a good range of hot and cold food, the staff were particularly welcoming. The room was clean and comfortable as you would expect of a large chain hotel. Bar prices were a bit steep and €8 for a small bottle of tonic but it's Paris! My stay was straight forward and I didn't have any specific demands, so in fairness I couldn't fault despite the mixed reviews.
"Good location, big convention hotel"
This hotel is only a few blocks from the Arc de Triumph, and next to a Metro stop, so it's convientient to get to the Paris sites. BUT it's right across from the Convention Center, so it is busy all the time. Long lines for breakfast seating, lines to check in/out.Rooms well appointed, free WiFi. Breakfast is amazing once you're seated. Fresh pastries, fruit, local cheese, omelet bar, everything.
