    « 3 star hotel; 1 star check in »

    Disappointing start to our stay due to 4 out of 7 rooms not being cleaned or ready for check in at 2pm. We were repeatedly told the rooms would be ready soon, and they handed over the rooms as they were ready - 4 rooms still not ready at 15:20 and after waiting 2 hours we gave in and went out for the evening with 1 room still to check in. After complaining we were given a complementary breakfast, which for me did not make up for wasting 2 hours of our New Year's Eve weekend away. I was told to email the manager after the trip to complain which I did and he wrote back to say he felt the breakfast was sufficient compensation, we will have to agree to dissagree on this point. The hotel is clean and is close to a metro / RER, one small point to bare in mind is that the hotel is outside of central travel zones and so the books of travel tickets (Metro; tram and RER) do not cover travel to the nearest stations. Breakfast was fine with good coffee and a reasonable choice for a smaller hotel. There is no bar so if you do have to wait for 2 hours for your room to be ready to check in you will be sitting in the lobby area. And there is no baggage storage area and so they will be stacked up next to reception. I would not stay in this hotel again due to the chaotic check in approach and the lack of a manger to discus the issue. Due to the poor response from the manager I will not be using the Best Western chain again.

    « Nice hotel but not four star »

    Nice little hotel near the metro station. Staff friendly and breakfast fine. Very reasonably priced. The decor can be a bit odd but I had a big room at the front. Some of the rooms are small and one leads off the reception.

    « Not bad but definitely not a 4* hotel »

    I would have like to give this hotel a better rating but there were too many things that I found disappointing for a 4* hotel: 1. there was a persistent bad smell in the bathroom (like sewer or something). It got a bit better after a day but never disappeared 2. at times, the water pressure dropped to zero when I was showering. I don't know why, maybe it happens when too many people draw water at the same time. It's unpleasant when you are all soaped up. Luckily it did not last too long. 3. the breakfast was really underwhelming. It's in a dark room in the basement and the choice is very limited. There is very little service too, which is not what one expects in a 4* hotel. The hotel is small and I understand that they can't offer a large buffet but at least please try to make it up with a great service. The one staff who's there literally stands still 95% of the time. She'll ask for your room number and, I guess, will clear the table. What about serving drinks and preparing made-to-order eggs for example? Now I have to admit the breakfast is not "expensive" at 13€. That said, the hotel has a very good location and is generally speaking very clean. The room was big enough and the bed comfortable. The decor was a tiny bit pompous but why not, in Vincennes. The one odd thing I did not quite understand was the Lord of the Ring memorabilia in the room. It felt a bit out-of-place. The other thing I liked was the very quick check-in. No annoying form to fill out, no credit card, just a name and a key in return. That was really appreciated.

    « Nice hotel »

    Charming, quaint, clean and comfortable. The location is very convenient. There are lots of shops and restaurants around. Walking distance to Metro station. The staff were super friendly and helpful. Will come back!

    « Don't let 'Best Western' put you off »

    I've stayed here several times now and it's never let me down. Rooms are small and the decor a matter of taste - mock-baronial style in homage to the Chateau de Vincennes opposite - but everything works. Breakfast is OK too - mainly continental but with scrambled egg and bacon for the international visitor.

    « The comfiest bed ever »

    Although a chain, Best Western Saint Louis has all the charm of a family-run business. Lovely and warm during a freezing spell,, my room was spotless, not huge but not cramped, while the bathroom was a generous size with a separate WC. The bed was so deliciously comfortable I wanted to take it home. The 6€ cold buffet breakfast offered a very impressive choice of fresh fruits, cheese and meats. Top marks to the whole staff for friendly efficiency and helpfulness. I will stay here again.

    « Disappointing....Noisy... »

    Stayed there on a short trip for a meeting in Montreuil (by Paris). Well, all went well until my neighbour decided to take a shower at 11.30pm... It was so noisy that I thought he was having it in my room. I had to sleep with earplugs and this is not what you expect from a "4 Stars" hotel. Rooms are large and comfortable, otherwise, but in house noise is a killer criteria for me.

    « Very nice stay »

    It is the second time we have stayed at this hotel - and our high expectations were maintained. Very comfortable bed. Lots of space in our room. It was clean. There were ample choices for breakfast. Staff were polite and helpful at all points. It was close to the metro which made access good. It is also a lovely neighborhood with some excellent restaurants.

    « Nice but small rooms »

    Friendly staff. Good location for subway and restaurants. New and clean rooms. The rooms are small and some are in bungalow style where bathroom at basement. Rooms are not very comfortable. More a 3 star than a 4 star hotel.

    « A great alternative to downtown Paris! »

    Sometime ago, a friend alerted us to the fact that Paris is surrounded by "village" living just outside the peripherique (the inner ring road that loosely follows the old city wall). The living is generally less frenetic and the value for money better in these areas that are on the last stop of the metro lines. Of course you need to check - but VIncennes is a very nice area with a plethora of cafes and shops and its own, very historic castle. The Best Western St Louis is close to all of this and is a great alternative to living in a very expensive downtown hotel where the shower does not allow you to bend over !

    « congratulations »

    No particular objection since almost everything was ok, except for the bathroom with a sink rather fragile and lack of soap dish in the shower. besides, breakfast is quite delicious, impeccable reception services and an unfailingly polite general manager.

    Friendly staff, right next to the metro, extremely clean rooms and a great breakfast! Several great restaurants within walking distance and only a short ride to downtown Paris. Will be back next time we visit Paris! Thanks for a great stay!

    « Great little hotel »

    Really good value, clean and well maintained! This is a lovely little hotel with a really helpful and friendly team of staff. Good location for getting into paris very close to the Metro. Nice and close to the Chateau for a bit of culture whilst you are there.

    « A Charming Hotel, and off the Beaten Track »

    The hotel is at the end of the Metro 1 line and is quite far out of the centre. Having said that, the metro is so efficient an regular that it doesn't matter. Many of the most popular tourist attractions are on that line including the Marais, The Louvre, Arc De Triomphe and the Grande Arche de la Défense are all there and the major hub, Chatelet is bang in the middle. Our only rexervation about our room which was on the ground floor was that it had a bathroom in the basement reached by a spiral staircse which was not the easiest. The staff was charming and the breakfast was very good.

    « Should be closed... »

    Stayed for one night to visit a relative in Montreuil. Typical French service, i.e. wouldn't grab a fire extinguisher if you were on fire. Arrived at 9pm with a car full of stuff including a travel cot, sleepy 2 year old and pregnant wife. Called for directions, none supplied, turns out the road the hotel is on is actually closed and is now a building site. Nearest parking half a mile away and no offer of any assistance from a male member of staff over the phone. Luckily managed to abandon the car outside the hotel next to a digger as it was a Saturday night and no work til Monday. Two members of staff in reception so they could have assisted. Dingy, tiny rooms. Found a damp towel down the side of our bed. Breakfast room is dingier still. How could the stay have been worse? Ah yes, if we'd have stayed any other night than Friday or Saturday we'd have been woken up by the builders machinery at 7am. Manager told me this was going on for four months while she smoked a cigarette on the pavement. They should just close until it's finished.

    « very good price quality »

    nice and friendly staff. clean and spacy renewed 3 person room with airco and high quality bathroom. at 50m from the Chateau de Vincennes and close to one of the most green spots in Paris, with parc floral and bois de Vincennes. not so far from the center of Paris. Great when you arrive after a bussy day ang go for a jogging in the bois de Vincennes.

    « Very Close to Paris Metro »

    If you are looking for a great place to stay to visit Paris, this hotel is an excellent option. Located adjacent to the main street in Vincennes, the location of this hotel could not be more perfect. Vincennes is a great city with plenty of options for food, shopping, and sight seeing. The walk to the metro is short and the hotel staff were extremely helpful in explaining the Paris metro system. From this hotel, we explorred Paris for several days and always had a great location to return.

    « My favorite Parisian Hotel »

    Between the Metro and RER in Vincennes France, both just a few blocks away, this jewel of a hotel is a romantic place for an interlude in the environs of Paris France. The rooms seem spacious without being large (and without an accompanying large charge).
