We arrived late on Friday 22 July, checked in and were very pleasantly surprised by our lovely room. It was very spacious, given that Parisian hotel rooms are usually "small". We were tired after our trip from the airport and decided to have a nightcap in the bar. Disaponted to find no cold draught beer as it was a warm night, but pleased to find bottled Leffe available. Then asked for a Margaritta (which is on the hotel cocktail list) for my wife. Well that put the cat amongst the pigeons, the staff did not know how to make a Margaritta, but they set about reading a book to find out how, and 10 minutes later delivered the drink, but without ice!! We then had to ask for ice which again seemed to cause some difficulty, as this is kept in a back room. Anyway they eventually delivered both drinks, total wait time about 15 minutes, but they did apologise and were very charming. We then asked where the ice machine was (a basic service for a 4 star hotel?) so we could chill the bottled water in our bedroom. We were told there were no ice machines, but we could take some from the bar and were provided with a glass jar full of ice. As i have already said the hotel is lovely and the deluxe room accomodation is excellent, but cant say what a standard room is like. We loved our Loewe flat screen TV and the tea/coffee making facilities and enjoyed the little internal courtyard on the first floor, for some fresh air. We found the hotel location to be good, although we normally stay closer to the river, so we can visit Rive Gauche more easily, but it wasnt a major problem. The public areas in the hotel were very nice and clean and we were able to watch the Tour de France closing ceremony on the large TV before taking a taxi back to the airport. We will return to the Astor next time we visit Paris.


What did you enjoy most about your stay?
Deluxe room was spacious and well appointed. Staff were very helpful and courteous. We are regular visitors to Paris but had not stayed here before. This hotel is now on our short list. We would stay here again.

What did not meet your expectations?
No draft beer at the bar only bottles available, but bar staff very friendly and helpful
