There seems to be a Joe Bonamassa theme about some of our hotel visits and this one is another. This time we were going to the Paris concert in April 2012 and booked the Hôtel Élysées-Mermoz or Elysees Mermoz Hotel based on good Booking.com scores and hotel reviews. It was also just a 15-20 minutes to the music venue, The Rex.
The Elysees Mermoz Hotel is about a 5 minute walk from the Champs Elysee and nearest Metro stop. There are plenty of shops and restaurants nearby so you are really at the heart of Paris here. The Elysees Mermoz is a very nice, bright and modern hotel with very friendly staff who speak good English, even though I did my very best in French but to a point. (It always takes me a few days to get my French into gear, but the effort is worth it)
The rooms at the Elysees Mermoz Hotel are spacious for Paris (as I have stayed in some Paris hotels which were tiny) and with a very nice compact bathroom. The bathroom featured excellent products and a great power shower. One of the nice touches was Free WiFi – I feel that in this day and age any hotel these days not offering Free WiFi normally won’t get my business!!
The beds are very comfortable and you will get an excellent sleep here, which is important if you are out all day walking the streets of Paris. We chose not to avail of breakfast on this occasion as we prefer to find local restaurants for a more authentic Parisenne morning experience.
The Hôtel Élysées-Mermoz is certainly a hotel which I will come back to for my next stay in Paris, not only for it’s great central location and friendly staff but also for the comfort and luxury of the accommodation in the heart of Paris.
