Fantastically located hotel

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 2, 2011

This is a very pleasant little hotel whose greatest virtue is its superb location - literally around the corner from Au Printemps and Galleries Lafayette for the shopper, and a short stroll from La Madeleine, L'Opera and Gare St Lazare.

The hotel is named after the French novelist George Sand, who gave birth to her son Maurice whilst renting accommodation in this house. The rooms are small but cosy, with excellent bathrooms and pleasant ambience.

There is a buffet style continental breakfast, which is fine but unspectacular.

Just a few things to bear in mind. Firstly, the area is also crisscrossed by shallow metro lines, so you will feel the vibrations every so often - noting to worry about (if it were going to fall down, it would have long since done so), but it can be a bit disconcerting if you're not expecting it. Secondly, the heating/air conditioning systems are controlled from within the room rather than centrally - a fact that I only discovered a couple of days into an Indian Summer heatwave in late September! And, in keeping with most small Parisian hotels where lifts have been retrofitted into old buildings, the lifts are miniscule, so bear this in mind when selecting your luggage.

Note that this is NOT the same place as Hotel George Sand in Avenue Marceau, Courbevoie, La Defense - as my boss (who regularly stays here on business) found out when our PA was away on leave, and another member of staff accidentally booked him into the other one!
