Best western ducs de bourgogne Paris Reviews
Great 3 star hotel right within walking distance of Notre Dame and other Paris landmarks Jan 17, 2015
Best Western Ducs de Bourgogne has a great location, which was the reason I chose it over two other hotels I had previously boooked in the Louvre area.
The hotel is located within 5 minutes walk of the Châtelet-Les Halles interchange, which provides access to the RER B Line from the airport, as well as the Metro. There are three Metro stations nearby, namely 1) Pont Neuf, 2) Châtelet and 3) Louvre-Rivoli.
The rooms are fairly small but this is the center of Paris so that's understandable. Rooms are brightly colored and not dull. Bed is comfortable enough and there is a cabinet which you will need to use because the free space around the bed poses challenges for large suitcases. They provide bathrobes and slippers which is good for a 3 star rated hotel.
Some of the pet peeves that need improvement - mostly around the bathroom. The toilet seat is positioned at the base of the bathtub beside it and not perpendicular or far away. They also don't have a bidet which surprises me since bidets are so French. On two mornings the hotel lost heating which is responsible for hot water in the shower and the radiator. It is not fun at all to bathe in freezing water!
The elevator is very small, good enough for 3 small people at most without their luggage. With luggage it goes down to 2 persons. On the last day we stayed the elevator had to undergo repairs but luckily we were on the second floor so bringing down luggage was not as difficult compared to those on the higher floors.
Breakfast was quite good, we enjoyed their pastry selection especially the croissants. One morning though during breakfast an alarm went off and the sound was so shrill and piercing to the ears and it didn't go off until almost 5 minutes later.
But despite those shortcomings, it was overall a good lodging experience. Big credit goes to the Chef de Réception, a charming gentleman named Thibault. Very good first impression for the hotel, he was splendid when it comes to customer service.
Definitely we will consider coming back as we know those incidents regarding the hot water, elevator and alarm are isolated and not regular occurences.
Finally, if you book three or more nights, the hotel offers a 15% discount. Fair enough deal for a hotel with one of the best locations in Paris.
