The Hotel Etoile Trocadero
We arrived at the hotel quite late - almost midnight local time. Again, the hotel had reserved two rooms on separate floors, but graciously substituted a smaller but nearer room for the adults.
Like all hotel rooms in Paris that I have seen, ours was small even before the switch. This room was clearly intended for a single person, probably one of the seven dwarves. I couldn't wash anything below my waist in the shower - no room to bend - and if I rotated in place in the shower stall, I changed the water temperature setting. Fortunately, I had no room to breathe deeply and scream.
However, the redeeming feature in this room was a lovely private patio with some (poorly tended) plants. It was cool (in the sense of fun and in the sense of temperature!).
