Stayed for 3 nights in the middle of August.
The main facade was under renovation with scaffolding all over. At the check in I am told that I have two options: enter immediately in a room with a small window or wait about 1 hour and half and have one with a little balcony. Me and my spouse prefer to wait, but I tell the receptionist specifically not to put us in a room facing the scaffoldings and I am assured she will not. Coming back we are given our keys and enter the room.......only to find it was facing the scaffolding with a worker standing right on our balcony looking at us !!!
We protest to the reception but the receptionist is changed. Now there's a man who is too busy with the complaints of another couple that quickly and without a smile pass us a new card key.
We take the elevator again and this time we find ourselves in the smaller room with the smaller window that we refused on the first time !!!
So we had waited for nothing for more than one hour.
Queen, not king size bed, and small bathroom too. When trying to make a cup of tea with the electric pot the whole room blacks-out !!! The maintenance man switch the breaker back two times but gives up to find the malfunction and tells us to wait until the morning.
This was supposed to be a REWARD, after months of continuously using Crowne Plaza hotels in other countries and accumulating hundreds of thousands points. It was supposed to be a romantic stay. Instead, we liked all of Paris with the exception of the Crowne Plaza Hotel.
Do NOT recommend.

Clean, well maintained with good service. Steps from the Metro. Perfect for my family's vacation to Paris.
The room was on the small side by North American standards, but this is Paris so it was not unexpected.

Great location. Lots of Metro lines at one stop was very convenient just in front of hotel. Breakfast buffet had lots of options and was very good. Our room was clean and modern. The bar and lobby area have an outdated 70's vibe to the decor.

The hotel is an impressive building overlooking the Republique square. Our room was at the top of the hotel and overlooked the hotel's courtyard - very quiet. spot.
Staff were friendly and helpful. The family room we had was a good size and clean and well presented. Only negative point was that storage was rather limited - would have benefitted from more drawer space. .Breakfast was fine but could be a bit chaotic at times if there at a busy time.
The hotel is located near the metro station which is very handy for getting around the city but be aware of scammers in the area pretending to be helpful metro staff! Advise purchasing tickets from official desk rather than the machines if unsure.

An excellent location for our short trip to Paris. The hotel was extremely friendly with very helpful staff. We walked around the wonderful sights of this city every day and a visit to the Club Lounge and a cold beer was very welcome at the end of the day.

As soon as I saw the room, i knew it wold not be suitable as it was one small room with one small bed. We are two single women, so I asked for another room with two beds and got it immediately - in the back area which was quiet.. The bellboy was so helpful in doing this.!
