We booked this hotel through travelzoo.com, which lead us to go-today.com. The hotel's location was perfect. There are quite a few metro stations that are less than a 5 minute walk. Very convenient! The area is full of cafes, restaurants, bakeries, and charm.
Every time we came into or left the building, someone was greeting us. All the staff spoke English and were very helpful if we needed anything.
We booked a standard size room. It wasn't really big of a room (reminded me of a NY size hotel), but we were very happy with it. Queen size bed, closet, coat hanger, desk, and separate bathroom. The size of the room didn't bother us since we were out on the streets exploring. Housekeeping was great. They cleaned up and organized everything when we came back to our hotel. Anytime you left the hotel, you give your key to the first desk. That lets them know that your room is free to clean and you don't have to worry about losing the key.
The hotel offered complimentary breakfast. Every morning we had croissants, scrambled eggs, turkey sliced, baguettes, cheeses, expresso, tea, fruit salad, and other baked goods. We made sure to load up on breakfast since the US Dollar isn't worth much.
The Wifi connection was very poor. I am not sure if it had something to do with our American phones, but it was very annoying.
The mini refrigerator wouldn't open. You had to have a key to open it. We had bought stuff from the La Grande Epicurerie market and couldn't store our food.
Overall, we were very pleased to have stayed here. I would definitely book this hotel again next time we visit Paris!
Definitely pros and cons to this hotel.
Pros--Le Royal is near Metro and many cafes. Also near the catacombs.
There is a great espresso machine in the lobby that you can use 24/7-gratis. The breakfast buffet had yummy things--great croissants, some lunch meats, eggs. Stock up for the morning as Paris is pricey.
Cons--WIFI was on and off. Our room was left open with a bath towel to prop it open all day long while we were out! Rooms are tiny. We had 2 twin beds. Air con was running- but barely.
