Faded charm in the *6e

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 12, 2006

Just above Le Mondrian brasserie, the Hotel Welcome has a faded charm, as well as the smallest lobby and elevator I have ever seen.

The beginning at Hotel Welcome on rue de Seine at blvd St. Germain was not auspicious. My TV remote didn't work, there was no water coming from the faucets a half hour after I arrived, and my radiator wouldn't turn on. Yet I'm going to recommend it to you as a good budget choice in the heart of the 6th arrondissement.

It turned out that the city had turned off the water without warning to fix an area water main. It took the city two days to fix it, but communication became better so that the hotel desk posted signs concerning the hours the water would be off. Not the hotel's fault, and, after the initial surprise they handled it well.

The TV remote turned out to be partly my fault -- the TV wasn't "on" to be signaled and the battery was dead. The young man at the desk came up twice to make sure I had a remote that worked.

I didn't report the heat situation until the next morning, when I told them my room temperature was 17 centigrade -- gotta love those Brookstone travel clocks! And it was fixed by the end of the day.

Sooo ... as I said not auspicious, but in the end the faded charm and the excellent front desk won me over. I also enjoyed being able to return to my hotel room during the day. The hotel has a pretty salon on the 1st floor where they serve breakfast and the teeniest narrow, but long elevator with two sets of doors. I ate breakfast at Bar de Marche, with the people working at the street market just a block away on rue de Buci.
