    The staff I dealt with were friendly, nice little hotel. WiFi was ok for social networks, couldn't stream. They had USB chargers, every hotel should have these! Good for sightseeing, but so is the majority of Paris

    « Great quiet location »

    Great location , well placed for bus and metro. Nice restaurants within walking distance. Very clean and well appointed room with a lovely view, just a little small but I believe this is the norm for Paris.

    « Such a nice hotel »

    We spent two days at the hotel La demeure and it was all perfect : the rooms were lovely, the hotel was very nice and well-situated, and the breakfast was simply delicious. The staff was also very helpful with getting around the city. A little extra : the owner offers a run in the city every Monday night, for those of you who travel with their running shoes and want a nice way to wander around unknown and pretty neighborhoods. I recommend it !

    Overall a Nice experience, the hotel had a pretty design and rooms was nice and clean throughout our stay. The reception staff was polite and helpful.. only let down was the breakfast a little disappointing, everything seemed to be frozen or store bought.

    « Lovely Boutique Style Hotel »

    We stayed here for 3 nights. On arrival we were upgraded, free of charge, to a superior double which was a lovely surprise! Room was a decent size (New York dimensions) but the bathroom was huge with a free standing bath! The room was also very well equipped with nespresso machine, kettle, hair dryer and complimentary shower gels, shampoo, etc. There is no mini bar but there is an honesty bar in reception with snacks, soft drinks, wine and champagne. I like gin and tonic but there were plenty of supermarkets and bars nearby so it wasn't a problem to venture out and buy elsewhere. Bed was super comfortable and there was no noise from outside so we were well rested. We were on 6th floor so had great views. The hotel is well situated on the edge of the Latin Quarter with good transport links. We ate breakfast at the hotel on our first morning, it was good value with plenty of choice. The staff were very helpful and professional. Would recommend this hotel ...

    « Stylish, peaceful. »

    Stayed for one night only. I booked two rooms and got a great deal from a booking site. We arrived a little early (1pm maybe) but one of our rooms was ready. I had booked two standard double rooms with breakfast but they upgraded one to a superior room on the corner. This room was very lovely, stylish and spacious. The second standard double was also very nice but really quite small if that is an issue for you. Check in was good, charming staff. The lobby area is nice, airy and attractive. There is also a lovely lounge area. We paid for breakfast which was very pleasant although breakfast room is nothing special. Our only slight issue was that their breakfast list information was incorrect so I was told I had to pay for breakfast. I was able to sort this out but not totally relaxing when mix ups like this happen. Near the Metro. There is a supermarket pretty much next door and another around the corner. Quiet area near the lovely Luxembourg gardens. Would definitely stay again particularly in a superior room.

    « Perfect option for weekend stay »

    Hotel is well situated with convenient access to public transportation, reasonably good restaurants and fairly central. Modern amenities and a small-hotel feel makes this the perfect stay for a few days or weekend. Breakfast is well worth it, and the staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. I definitely recommend La Demeure!

    « 7 night stay in Paris »

    My husband and I stayed at the hotel for our 25 year anniversary. It was in a fabulous and safe location in Paris. We caught many metros from the multiple stations handy to this hotel , including, Les Goblins, Gare d"Austerlitz, Censier Duebenton, and D'Italia. We ate breakfast twice and it was very good.We stayed on the 3rd floor and the view from the room was lovely. The air cond/heating was very good. There is many restaurants nearby and we walked to the Lourve and city a few times which was lovely. We felt very safe here. As we had been pick-pocketed in Mont Marte on a day trip we were glad to return and feel so safe at this property. The staff were very good and really friendly. For those westerners from places like the US and Australia would find the room very small. But we did expect that though! It was a really lovely little hotel and we would stay here again

    « Clean, friendly staff, good location »

    Our trip to Best Western Plus La Demeure was beyond our expectations. The hotel was clean and beautifully decorated. The staff were very friendly and gave us guides on things to do in Paris. It is located beside a bus stop and only a few minutes from the metro and train lines. I would highly recommend this hotel for couples who are looking for a quiet break away.

    « Excellent value Boutique Hotel »

    Just returned from a 4 day stay here and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Meet and greet by staff from start to finish was excellent. The hotel has been carefully designed with lots of attention to detail. Loved the lobby furniture and smart entrance planting. Our standard room was small but had been carefully considered so that space was maximised. The Hotel is on the edge of the Latin qtr and easily accessible via metro or bus. Rue Moffetard and the Pantheon is a 10 min walk away with plenty of eateries and interest. You can walk to Notre Dam in 20 mind Vis this route. Would definitely recommend.

    stayed in the hotel for 3 nights visiting Paris. the hotel was very nice and in a safe location. Staff were very welcoming and accommodated any requests we had during our stay. Bedroom was very modern and had a nice style, very big and comfortable bed. Breakfast was perfect to start your day!

    « Fantastic hotel »

    Stayed here for one night in January. Greeted by a very friendly receptionist who had informed us that our room had been upgraded. The corner room view was stunning and the natural light provided a beautiful atmosphere during the day. The shower deserves a special mention. Simple to operate with two powerful yet relaxing shower heads. A metro station is a short walk away as well as many food shops, bars and restaurants. Highly recommend and will definitely stay again.

    « Great stay at a great price in a lovely location »

    Spent a long weekend in Paris in December, rooms were clean and modern matching the rest of the hotel, huge shower and comfortable beds. The breakfast was great with lots to offer and is perfect for setting you up for a day of adventure. Held our bags after we checked out as we had the rest of the day before our train left in the evening so we could explore more without hauling our bags everywhere.

    « Gorgeous! »

    Gorgeous, newly renovated room in a superb location in Paris. Very close to metros, and within walking distance to Notre Dame. Also close to restaurants, cafes and small supermarkets. Hotel staff are extremely friendly and helpful also. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would have loved to stay longer!

    « Perfect Location for Access to Good Food and Transport »

    We loved our 6 nights in this hotel. It was newly renovated tidy room in a great location with walking distance to Metro and local restaurants . The hotel staff were always willing to assist with information and breakfast included in our booking was pretty good I'd definitely stay again

    We have 3 nights here, although room a bit small but great location! Walk to opposite there is a bus to the destination I wanted to go. There is supermarket nearby too! Staff very friendly and welcome us and helpful, I have booked my Disneyland ticket for last minutes, and staff willing to help us for printing the ticket! Definitely will recommend to others!

    « Good hotel within easy reach of Gare de Nord and main attractions »

    We had a standard room at this hotel which was quite small but had everything you would need. The room was very clean and the shower was the best I have ever used in a hotel room and we usually stay in 4 star hotels. We had a separate toilet but it did not have a wash hand basin which wasn't the best thing. The room had a large smart TV and a coffee machine. The breakfast was adequate. Within easy walking distance of 2 metro stations and buses run at front of hotel. Overall a great stay in a nice hotel

    « Tiny, Must Make Reservations For Breakfast Buffet »

    A small, quaint hotel with very small rooms but nicely appointed rooms. Breakfast buffet required resevations in a VERY small buffet area. We eren't informed that reservations were required and showed up for breakfast without a reservations. The understaffed, overworked employee was very indignant about our situation, but seated us. The rest of our stay we went to the pastry shop and then on to Starbucks, a 15 minute walk. WiFi was very spotty and unrealiable on the third floor but much better on the first floor and in the lobby.

    « Brilliant Stay »

    Really enjoyed staying at the Demeure. It's in a brilliant location about 300m from Les Gobelins metro stop, and just over 1km away from Jardin des Plantes and the Catacombs in the opposite direction. The hotel is decorated very stylishly, and feels more like a boutique hotel than a best western! The staff were very welcoming and helpful. The rooms are small yes, but have everything you could need and more. Ours had a SmartTV which my partner enjoyed connecting his phone to after dinner, a kettle and a nespresso coffee machine (although instructions on how to use this would not go amiss!). The rooms are really well decorated. The bathroom is tiny but the shower more than makes up for that, being a very large walk in two headed affair. Toiletries are provided, and the towels are perhaps the best I've ever used in a hotel. All in all a brilliant stay and would not hesitate to recommend - and we will be returning some day!

    Beautiful, newly renovated boutique hotel. First time in Paris and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. We were a family of four and had the Jr. Suite. Queen bed and double couch bed - room was very clean, bathroom was great, everything about the stay was awesome. Beds were super soft and the staff was tremendously helpful in giving directions and recommendations for food. Would stay here again in a heartbeat!

    « Loved It »

    We always stay near the Rue Mouffetard when in Paris. This is the first time we have stayed in this hotel but think we've now found our regular place to stay! Staff were really friendly. Not just one but all that we came across. The hotel has been done up in a lovely boutique style from reception through to the room. Bed was super comfy and shower was excellent. Love the nespresso machine in the room as well. Really couldn't fault it and look forward to the next visit.

    « Better than expected »

    Best Western in the USA is different than ones internationally, at least this one. This place was rated a 3 star hotel. But it should be a 4 star boutique hotel. It isn't a dumpy place like in the US. It is clean. Has a 50" LED Samsung TV. Toiletry. Breakfast is included if you're staying in the junior suite. Else, it's extra. The rooms are small but that's Paris. I'm just glad there was an elevator. Wi-Fi is available but it's very slow.

    « Staff was highly courteous and ever smiling! »

    This is a very comfortable hotel with a great location near the Les Gobelins metro and Rue Mouffetard. Rooms were neat and clean. Bed was comfortable. Excellent breakfast. And most importantly the staff was highly courteous and ever smiling!. We were family of three and we enjoyed every moment of our stay.

    « Loved the location in the Latin Quarter »

    Room was were small but well appointed and pretty quiet. Staff had pretty good English and were very friendly and helpful. Were happy to advise or help with anything required. Breakfast was very nice with a good selection. The metro was just around the corner and so convenient to anywhere in the city. Walking distance to the Seine. Plenty of bars and cafes close by to choose from plus a supermarket.

    « Amazing Hotel »

    Was only there for a night but had the most pleasant of times. They upgraded my room even though I was just one guy who did not need a bigger room but they did it. And the room was fantastic. After a 16 hour flight I was exhausted and fell asleep as soon as I checked in and had a quick shower. Had a great breakfast the next morning which I would highly recommend. And most importantly the staff were so good to me, I arrived a good 4 hours early but the checked me in without any problems, upgraded my room, helped me out by telling me about the nearby shops and bistros. Had a truly wonderful time.

    « Cool view »

    We have just come home from a two night trip and we stayed in the 6th floor and the view off the Eiffel Tower was amazing. If u don't mind walking it's a beautiful walk to the main attractions, but there is the metro 5 mins away. The staff were super helpful from receptionist to the breakfast lady to the porter. Rooms are small but perfect for us. We will definitely return to Paris what a city and defiantly stay here. Remember too floor and street facing #mostromanticcityevet- photo is our view

    « Old hotel undergoing refurbishment »

    Stayed here only one night, luckily. Room was tiny and had no wardrobe. No room for a second suitcase so we put that in the bathroom.Bed was comfortable. Had to walk up the stairs which were covered in plastic. Only a small breakfast room, breakfast was ok. Luckily the staff bought the suitcases to and from the room.

    « Short Visit to Paris »

    Hotel was under going renovations and the lift did not work so it was fun walk to the 5th floor. Should be finished by now? Staff took our suitcases up and down when needed which was good. The location made up for it though and my wife and I did need the exercise after doing a river cruise prior to our arrival in Paris. Close to metro station to get around. Staff were friendly and helpful. Room was good. Found a great restaurant down towards the metro at the first cross road.

    « An up and coming hotel »

    When we arrived at the hotel, it was undergoing a refurbishment. There were paint sheets everywhere, lift out of order and a strong smell of paint. I wish we knew about this beforehand. However, the staff carried our luggage up to our room due to the lift being off and we stayed in a newly refurbished suite. Rooms were small but beds were comfortable. There wasn't a proper shower head in the shower and had to hold it over our head. Apart from that we liked the hotel! Good location with walking distance to Gare de Lyon and Notre Dame. Would stay again once the refurbishment has been completed (and would get a higher score!).

    « Friendly and well located »

    Thanks to al the staff for making us welcome. The rooms were clean and beds comfortable. Whist there is renovations in progress (we were advised in advance) they did not disrupt our stay. Any issues were attended to efficiently by the team. Great patisserie across the street. Chemist and super market within easy walk. Lil petite cafe on the corner allowed us to take our meals to our room when the kids were tired and bring the dishes back later. Metro is easy walk, some attractions take some time to get to. Notre dame is close, Eiffel tour takes time and a change of train, not hard if you plan. Likewise for Montmartre. Moffetard lane for the best markets and food. Would definitely stay again. Many thanks again.

    « great location and customer service »

    This is a very comfortable hotel with a great location near the Les Gobelins metro and Rue Mouffetard. The rooms are small but well designed. The staff is also very helpful. They made several arrangements on our behalf during our stay.

    « Comfortable stay in a nice location »

    If this hotel had not have been undergoing reconstruction and if the lift had have been working I would give this hotel a better rating, Luckily we were only on the second floor so negotiating the stairs was not too big a deal for us. We had a pleasant room. Nicely decorated with a comfortable bed. My main complaint was the very poor wifi. It was useless. Why offer paying guests wifi that can't even download a facebook page? The hotel is in a nice area. Many cafes and restaurants nearby to choose from. The metro is a short walk away and there is a supermarket just up the road. One nice touch is the selection of croissants and juice on offer in the front office. Staff are really nice and helpful.

    « Comfortable and cosy. »

    If you have trouble with stairs due to any physical issues this maybe unsuitable to your needs. There is no elevator and the stairs are steep and narrow. Due to renovations on the lower floors , our room was on the 5 level. The room was clean and the bed was reasonably comfortable. There was a Nespresso machine in the room which was a nice touch and the small narrow balcony afforded a nice view of the distant Eiffel Tower. The bathroom was very cosy, allowing me to wash clothes in the hand basin while on the toilet. If you drop the soap in the shower , picking it up was a cross between yoga and gymnastics to retrieve it. The staff were very helpful and courteous. We didn't have breakfast included as there is a patisserie across the road that also does coffee , 2 minutes walk will get to many sidewalk cafes and restaurants as well as the metro. I wouldn't say it has wheelchair access though. On the up side, we found that by being on the 5 floor we got a balcony and having to climb the stairs allowed us that extra guilt free glass of wine after our meal.

    « Undergoing major construction »

    This was a nice hotel in a nice area but is undergoing construction that was disruptive to our stay. We had a room on the 6th floor, and the elevator was not working. Luckily, the staff carried our luggage to our room, but it was a pain to have to walk up and down 6 flights of stairs. In addition, it was noisy early in the mornings once the workers began the construction work, and the hotel was also a mess due to the construction. In addition, no concessions were offered to us given the state of construction. Also, it was advertised that this hotel had air conditioning; however, it seemed like there was either no air conditioning or that the air conditioning didn't work. It was unbelievably hot when we were there, and we had to sleep with the window open. We were not notified of the construction until less than a week before our stay and had we known about the construction prior to booking and paying for the hotel, we would have chosen to stay elsewhere.

    « Undergoing major reno »

    If you have ANY mobility problems avoid this place until August when the reno will presumably be complete. Painters and workmen everywhere. Paint smells and dust very bad for people with breathing problems. No lifts. Staff is very accommodating and if you get stuck here be sure to get a discount. Should be lovely upon completion. Hope they improve the breakfast along with the reno.

    « Construction zone »

    Recently stayed here on recommendation. Shame about the renovations and lift not working (had we known we would not have stayed here - even though reception had informed us that they had informed agents - not the case as far as our agent was concerned and that of other guests we spoke to at breakfast who were equally unhappy). We had to climb 6 flights of stairs to our room and avoid "construction zone" on way up and down - giving us bigger/better view rooms did not compensated for this. On two mornings I nearly walked into a ladder that was just outside my room - the ladder was being used to access to roof and the lift shaft. Luckily I was looking where I was going. The other issue was that I had received a fax confirming pickup time on our day of departure, which had come in 24 hours before but only received it when we were checking out and the driver appeared early (as he had stated in his fax) - all they had to do was to place the fax under my door when it arrived - I suspect the thought of having to walk up 6 flights of stairs to do this was a deterrent! If not for this, the hotel is in a good location though and the staff are friendly. I am sure once the upgrade/renovations are complete that it will be a beautiful place to stay. My heart goes out to the poor porter who had to carry heavy bags up and down the stairs - let's hope the lift is in working order soon.

    « Business trip in Paris »

    I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights during my business trip to Paris. The hotel is nice, looks newly built. Surprisingly got a Junior Suite which was really nice, no complains. Reception staff was very friendly and supportive. The only drawback was: the lift was not working but as i mentioned above the staff was very helpful, they helped me taking my luggage in my room which was at 6th floor. Apart from that it was very nice stay.

    « Excellent Location !! »

    If you're planning on Paris visit and would like to soak in local/suburban experience this is the best deal. They're walking distance from Latin Quarters, Panthéon and Notre Dame de Paris. In addition, there're 4 metros in walking distance including Les Goblins, Campo Formio and St Marcel Mostafa and Lucie at the front office are excellent. We needed a phone charging cable in the evening, unfortunately, all shops were closed...Mostafa was kind enough to lend his personal cable to us. They also have great restaurants, Parisian bakery and wine store next door !!

    « Good hotel but needs some fixes or renovation »

    I stayed in this hotel for 3 nights, but had to change my room in the middle of the stay. The reason was leaking WC and bath cabin (Room 303 I think). The second room (304) was smaller and had some other issues, but not that critical. Yeah, rooms are not very big, but comfortable enough for a short stay when you spend most of the time outside. Be aware of the noisy St Marcel street under your windows which can be very noisy because of traffic and emergency service alarms. The best part was probably the bed which was very comfortable. Breakfast was good, the grapefruit juice was very delicious while coffee/tea could be better (but I have to admin that I very rarely see decent tea/coffee in buffet breakfast like this). The reception staff was very friendly and helpful, they tried to assist as much as then can. So, if they fix their bathrooms, the hotel can be recommended.
