We weren't able to have TripAdvisor pick our hotel in Paris -- it was designated by the conference we were attending. This is the second time that this conference has used this hotel, and I think in the intervening seven years, it's gone downhill, now more oriented to inexpensive family lodging rather than business people or serious tourists.
The hotel isn't awful, it's just lackluster. Smallish rooms with no upholstered chair to read in, no in-room coffee pot, no rack to sit a suitcase on (or room to put one). Free internet, but enormous nuisance value to connect: they require you to use an 8-random-character userID and password that have to be re-entered every time you log on, and you need to get a new set of them every two days. Separate UserID and password if you want to use your smart phone.
One of the two torturously slow elevators broke down on the day we arrived (trapping two of our fellow conferees for half an hour). They reported that pushing the "call for help" button reached some general service that could not tell which hotel the call was coming from. Six days later, the elevator was still out of order.
Breakfasts fine, but half the time the salt and pepper shakers were either missing or empty, and they were slow to replenish empty buffet trays.
In general, the problem with Villa Modigliani is not the facility, it's the level of service and the service attitude. Mostly the attitude is "C'est impossible!" no matter what you ask for.
The location is pretty good, among a lot of restaurants and near three Metro lines. There's a Saturday morning fruit/veg/meat/fish/flowers fare a block away whose offerings are stunningly beautiful. Oh, to have Paris produce back home! But in general, I'd give Villa Modigliani a pass.
