I just returned with a friend from a a short trip to London and Paris and feel so lousy about the Paris stay. We booked thru Splendia which states a possible upgrade and glass of champagne on arrival -Read more none of that happened but that was ok. I do tend to feel like I am begging when there are those perks promised but not delivered so I just keep my mouth shut - which I did this time also. First, Hotel Coste K is wonderfully located -
a great walk to many fabulous sights and some ok brasseries if you choose to stay in the area.
The hotel is very modern and our final room was perfect although first we were taken to a room with a horrible smell. The man that helped us switch rooms said they hope people will just deal with the smell - we didn't and they were accomodating. I cannot say the staff and service was bad - everyone was accomodating but there certainly were no warm and fuzzies -I will attribute some to the language barrier and let it go.
The gym, spa is great - clean and safe enough for me to feel ok in the lap pool alone at night.
OK, so what made this lousy? A dress I bought disappeared from the room. I cannot pin down when it happened because as I wear something I usually put it back in my bag - I never went thru the bag when leaving since I assumed the dress was there packed away safely. In retrospect I remember hanging it in the closet after wearing it. So both my friend and I checked the room over and over, assumed we had everything and flew back to NY. When I unpacked - no dress. The bag was just as I packed it so no chance of an airport problem.
A French friend got on the phone and made numerous calls to the hotel - nothing came of it - they said there was no recourse for me.
So I do not make this accusation lightly but the bottom line is a $500.00 dress was stolen from Hotel Coste K with no seeming regret on their part. So what would the lesson be here? I guess I should have checked my bag yet as we hurried to catch a cab I still would have been helpless to do anything even if I had realized the dress was gone.
Yes, lousy experience in the end!!!!!!
Hmmmm so; the hotel itself is gorgeous, very stylish, huge bedrooms, Bang&Olufsen gadetry etc etc and is moments from the Eiffel Tower. So, so far so good. BUT and it's a big BUT, the staff just don't get it. I know it's Paris and it might be too much to ask for customer focus, but the staff at the hotel, save one notable exception, were too superior for words.
We were a group of eight women (35plus) on a pre-wedding weekend and while definitely wanting a great weekend, were far from your standard hen trip. We were somewhat put out therefore to find that the hotel bar was "closed" to us at 12pm despite us being residents. When we asked why the staff were incredibly rude (in French that they mistakenly thought we didn't understand) and point blank refused to serve us. Amazing!
Hey ho, we put it down to experience but it was a real shame and rather took the shine off the weekend. I wouldn't rush back
Stayed at this beautiful hotel for 3 nghts and can not think of one negative thing to say about it. Superb location very close to Tower and Arc. The staff were all very polite and helpful and we were upgradedRead more on arrival.
It is a very modern hotel with some quirky art pieces which my thirteen year old son found very cool!. The bedrooms very large especially for Paris and the quietest hotel bedrooms I have ever stayed in, which was great as I needed the sleep. I have already advised a friend to book this hotel and we only arrived back last night.
I arrived very early in the morning and the desk people assured me my room would be ready soon (yeah right, heard that one before!), they comped me breakfast, and, 30 minutes later, I was in my room showering.Read more Every request I made of the front desk, they came through. Decent location, nice rooms and excellent service, for once I feel like I am acually getting what I paid for in Paris. I have already changed future reservations to return again.
I arranged a 'surprise' long 'children-free' weekend in Paris at the end of March as a birthday surprise for my partner and also with the intention of proposing to her in one of the most romantic citiesRead more in the world. I specifically wanted to stay somewhere 'different' and scoured the 'designer boutique' type hotels on the web. I chose this hotel mostly for its location but also for the architecture ( i am an architect). After booking i read the mixed reports on 'trip advisor''s web site and wondered if i had made the right choice.
It has been a while since i've been to Paris but i wasn't dissappointed. The City was smarter, cleaner and more efficient than i recall and i found that if you tried to speak the native language (and my french is very rusty) the Parisians were most accommodating. Our room overlooked the tower which was a bonus.
We arrived at the hotel late on friday afternoon and found everything just as promised...other than the web page said that we would receive a complementary glass of champagne on our arrival (which should have been a nice touch bearing in mind the nature of our trip) but dissappointingly it was never 'offered' and we had to ask for this before we left. That said the staff received us well and our room was well appointed and spotless. Some reports refer to the white/cream room decor as stark and cold...we found it to be serene and calming. It is definately not a hotel for families!
Throughout the weekend we asked advice of the staff on numerous occassions and they were only too willing to help and all spoke excellent english. Als as previous reports stated, the front desk staff are all 'beautiful people' and well presented but they also had the intelligence to match the looks.
Strolling out of the hotel in the evening was a breeze; the metro was literally a hundred yards away and and the Eiffel Tower, was literally a stones throw away. There are a number of cafes nearby who all offer excellent (and cheaper) food/drinks.
The downside for us was that the public areas of the hotel were a little too cold for comfort, didn't really have any ambience and eating/drinking in there was very expensive...when we arrived we orderd a club sandwich ..at 18 euros its the most expensive i have ever had! If staying for any length of time you wouldn't feel inclined to use the bar/bistro area for any reason other than necessity.
All in all i would say Paris is very expensive and so is this hotel but this is only 'par for the course'. Other than the public areas we enjoyed the hotel, its facilities and the staff and would certainly stay again if we travel here again without our children. Oh.............and she said YES!
Went to the Costes K for the first time because of its location. Found the service to be weak: arrived late and asked to have a shirt ironed for the morning - impossible. Asked to have an iron and ironingRead more board so I could do it myself - impossible. After some insisting they finally took the shirt and guaranteed they would give it back by 08:00am...did not arrive before 08:20 and put me late. The minimalist design is OK but maintenance does not live up to it (worn down carpet and paint). Conclusion: dissapointing, will probably not return.
After having stayed at Hotel Costes and Hotel Bourg Tibourg, Costes K was a massive disappointment. They are obviously cutting costs as the 'scented' candles were tea lights, the toilet paper was scratchyRead more and the CDs on display on the desk were battered and tatty. The minimalist interiors were boring, cliched and outdated. They couldn't send a taxi to meet us at Gare du Nord on the Friday night and when we did finally arrive (starving) they could only offer smoked salmon. Lucky we like smoked salmon! Being in the hotel was depressing. The room was cold and auster and too office-like for our liking. If it wasn't so expensive one could perhaps overlook these faults. Put simply, Hotel Costes K is dreadful and I will be extremely surprised if it is still around in 6 months' time.
Having stayed in this hotel 3 years in a row to attend a conference, one would expect them to welcome back my custom. I booked this hotel 3 months in advance but that did not stop them calling me 5 daysRead more before my arrival to relocate me in a hotel on the other side of Paris! They refused to reimburse my cab fares to the conference I was now located miles from and told me to catch the metro. I dare say they cancelled my reservation in favour of a footballer playing in the Champions League final - but will they be back next year?! I question their customer loyalty and I won't book there again.
My husband planned a surprise trip for the 2 of us to Paris to celebrate his birthday. We stayed at the Hotel Costes K for 5 nights from a Friday to a Wednesday in early May. A business colleague from Paris strongly recommended the Costes K, based on its location and as she knows I like to work out when I travel. The Costes K is apparently a rare Parisian hotel with a gym.
We stayed in a junior suite, which is about the size of a room in North American hotels. It was lovely: modern styling, with lots of closet space, fax machine, wireless internet (included in the room price), mini bar, king bed, luxurious linens, beautiful TV and CD player (but we had no CDs), huge window and very large bathroom (huge tub, separate shower, two sinks, toilet, loads of thick towels, bathrobes/slippers). The closets lit up when the doors opened and one had a full length mirror. The room was extremely comfortable. I really can't think of any complaint with the room at all.
There are lots of staff. Everyone is notably very attractive, young and chic. They were helpful and courteous with a slight aloofness, typical to Paris. They helped us with any service or question in a pleasant manner. (Note: We are fluent in French.)
The gym was nice, with a pretty granite pool and sauna. The gym had a couple treadmills, stationary bikes, etc., lots of hand weights and weight training apparatus. I believe that the gym is available for non-hotel users to join. It was never busy when I went.
The hotel itself is very contemporary in its interior design, in contrast to many Paris hotels. The bar area is gorgeous, but we never stopped in because there were so few clients - who wants to have a drink in an empty place? However, on our last day, the clientele markedly increased in the hotel - young, career-types.
The Costes K is on Kleber, one of the dozen streets that branch off of the Arc de Triomphe. From CDG airport, it took about 45 min by taxi at a cost of 40-50 e. It is conveniently located about 1 km from the Eiffel tower and 1 km from the Arc de Triomphe. There are several metro stops close by. There are scads of bistros nearby, as well as a bakery, wine store, pharmacies and groceries.
Sum: If you can afford it, I would recommend the Costes K. Certainly, this is not a budget hotel, but compared to the others in the area, it is reasonable value and in this case, you get what you pay for.
This hotel is a sister hotel to the far more upmarket and trendier Hotel Costes (less the "K") which is near the Louvre.
The K is nearer the Arc de Triomphe. The location is fine for walking around andRead more going to the Eiffel Tower. This is a minimalistic more businessy type hotel, there's not really much going on in the bar or restaurant. The rooms are a little cold and unwelcoming. This hotel is an OK but rather overpriced base for a trip to Paris - ie. somewhere you just want to sleep and get ready but don't really want to spend much time in cos there's not a lot happening there - don't get me wrong, the rooms are modern, clean and upmarket with nice bathrooms, but it's just a boring place - don't let the red lips sofa in reception fool you that this place has got it goin' on! If all you want from a hotel is a base, there are far cheaper options around.
