We were a bit unsure of what to expect, but this hotel far exceeded our expectations and was a charming place to stay. The Grand Dore is not in the historic center, but it takes only a few minutes to ride to the center via two metro lines available at a Metro stop less than a block away from the hotel. The hotel's surrounding neighborhood has the appearance and amenities of central Paris, but without the noise and congestion. The hotel itself is immaculate and up-to-date. The rooms are compact but not tiny, and have comfortable beds, ample armoires, and contemporary bathrooms (ours had a shower). Our continental-style breakfast was included and offered coffee/tea/milk, hard/soft-boiled eggs, fresh fruits, cereals, fresh pastries, bread and preserves, etc., with real plates and silverware (no plastic or paper!). As with many Paris hotel elevators, this one is small; but it's also speedier than any other hotel elevator we've encountered in Paris. The hotel staff was friendly and knowledgeable, spoke English flawlessly, and was patient with us when we tried our inadequate French on them. We've already recommended the Grand Hotel Dore to friends.
