    « Super! »

    We spent a weekend in November at this hotel. It is very nice in every way! helpful and friendly staff, the rooms are small but contain everything you need and they were fresh and fine. the hotel is close to the metro and in the area there are plenty of restaurants and cafes. It is walking distance to the center with attractions such as the Louvre and Notre Dame. we really want to recommend this hotel. Thank you for a very pleasant stay!

    « A great hotel in Paris »

    Excellent service and very polite staff, nice and clean rooms and good location close to shops and restaurants. Little traffic noise from the street, but all and all a great place to stay when in Paris.

    « Nice quiet hotel »

    We stayed here for a week in September. It was our first trip to Paris so we picked this hotel because it was centrally located and near a Metro station. The room was very nice but a bit on the small side. We were out so much that it really didn't matter to us. The hotel will store luggage while you are there which makes the room feel less cluttered. (we didn't take advantage of this option) It was very clean and had everything we needed, including a nice shower and good wifi. The front desk was good to us and helped on several occasions with directions and also lent us an umbrella on the one day that it rained. There was a general hum to the city and sirens could be heard most nights...but it is down town Paris. The streets around the hotel are filled with people of all types, including a few selling themselves but it always felt safe to walk around. Rue St.Denis is one block away and filled with interesting shops, restaurants and bakeries. It was about a 20 minute walk to the Louve, d'Orsay and other interesting areas of central Paris.

    « Not the best location, unless you like prostitutes. »

    We stayed here for 2 nights on our babymoon/ early honeymoon. (I definitely recommend booking any and all hotels directly through their own website so that there's a better chance of getting upgrades/ freebies for special occasions.) LOCATION: This hotel is located on a busy street next to the Metro. We constantly heard the roar of sirens and traffic (room 13, 1st floor, facing main street) and could literally spot multiple prostitutes from our window at almost any given time of day. We looked it up only after our first night because there were just so many, and found out that the area was known for "ladies of the night" that don't just come out during the night. Some were obvious and scantily dressed, while others looked like regular middle-aged moms. You could usually tell if they were prostitutes by the shoes they wore. They usually stood in one spot or in door ways for long periods of time. We watched them approach middle aged men walking by themselves and then disappear into the allies, all from our window. In a matter of 48 hours, we also witnessed a younger guy tagging a wall across the street during the day (from our window), and a drug deal between a black man and a white man, just a few blocks down. The minority population is a lot higher in this area in comparison to other parts of Paris and you'll definitely notice when walking around. With all that said, we were never approached or bothered by anyone on the street. We never felt unsafe walking, but we were always together. I wouldn't recommend this area to people traveling with kids though. ROOM: Standard small size with an even smaller bathroom. You literally step in, and step out. The design of the shower let water spray through so our floors were always a little wet. Rooms come with nice TVs, minibar, blow dryer, safe, and a clock that is Iphone friendly. The bed was comfortable and sheets felt nice a clean. Unfortunately, not the quietest. We could always hear people in the hall and the fire alarm went off for a good 3-5 minutes straight right outside our room. For our room being non-smoking, it always smelled like smoke right when we entered, but nothing too unbearable. After a certain time, you must be let in through the front doors by the front desk, and twice were we standing there, waiting to be let in. For being a bigger chained hotel, we were expecting the front desk help to be a little more friendly. They were definitely not the warmest and at the time of check-out, I was told we had to pay city taxes of almost 10 euro for staying only 2 nights. I booked through Priceline and even showed her the emails that said nothing of this additional fee, after she repeatedly claimed it did. We later figured out that the fee was already included with Priceline, but the hotel never charged us for it and expected us to pay the last day. A little hiccup, but I just didn't appreciate how the front desk was so certain that I was wrong. She never apologized, just said she understood how I could have misunderstood because nothing was written in the email or on Priceline's site. Overall, the room and hotel itself were aesthetically appealing and very clean, but the location and the staff's lukewarm customer service will have us looking elsewhere.

    « Modern, clean hotel »

    Very impressed with the cleanliness of the hotel. The room was small but well-appointed. The employees were very friendly and helpful, especially Romain at the front desk. The neighborhood is busy and dense, probably not the most peaceful part of Paris.

    « Well located, clean, helpful staff »

    I was there with my girlfriend for 5 nights and our stay was very pleasant. At the time I had had a problem with my credit card and the staff was very helpful in finding an alternative solution to pay. To cheer us up, or because the hotel wasn't fully booked, or both, we had an upgrade to an higher level room. The room itself was very clean and bright, with bed and bathroom appropriate to the hotel's category. Concerning the position, it is within walking distance to an area with nice bars and restaurants (towards Les Halles), and it is excellently situated 2-3 minutes walk from the underground station connected to M4, M8, M9. Convenience stores can be found very close by. Overall, I'd strongly suggest this hotel! :)

    « Convenient Location in Paris »

    The Hotel is clean, neat and we loved the courteous staff. The rooms are about average size but given that it is Paris, we also expected it. Good location advantage in the best district of Marais, Would strongly suggest tourists stay in this district and in this hotel.

    « 40th Birthday Treat »

    Fantastic stay. Room was upgraded for free when they realised that we arrived on my husband's 40th birthday and the service was friendly and helpful. Great location - a ten minute walk to the gay scene. Stayed two nights - would stay again!

    « Recommend »

    Good location in center of Paris. Close to metro station. Many shops and restaurants near by. Hotel itself is clean, room is modern and fresh. Yes, its a bit small but it is normal for Paris. Staff is friendly and helpful. Breakfast we preferred to eat outside of hotel. There are many croissanteries and bagel caffes. I would stay in this hotel again.

    « Low quality overall, so Disappointed. »

    We have stayed here for our honeymoon. Once we have seen the room, It was really disappointing.VERY SMALL room, and bathroom. even if we have asked to change room to same category, they were not able to satisfy our request , saying that they didnt have got anymore room. and they have got only a suite which we had to pay more diffirence if we would like to change what I did is,Ive looked through a booking site if they have got any availability for the same classic double room for the dates of our stay, theygot more than one classic room available. really disappointing!!!!! I think it was the smallest room that they have in the hotel!!! Wi-fi connection didnt work all the time we were at the highest floor I think. But it was clean, and well supplied. We were expecting atleast a good buffet of breakfast for its expensive cost, but what we had was really poor quality, small choices of foods and beverages. Staff were helpful, to give some informations. Especially the gentlemans. The lady on the reception on our check out , didn't help us the way we've wanted. The biggest good point of this hotel, might be its location. Few minutes away by subway from all the main attractions of Paris city centre. The nearest subway stop is just across the street. Just pay attention on pick pockets theyre everywhere! Overall, I don't reccomend this hotel, If you want to be home away from home, go and spend your money in somwhere else better than this hotel!!!

    « Pathetic services by hotel staff »

    I tried to book my recent stay at the hotel was trying to book 2 rooms using there website but some how the booking was not going through so i decided to send them a mail to help me book the needfull also had sent a screenshot of there website with the offer and price total for the stay , how ever they never replied to the mail at first go so i decided to call them instead , the lady at reservation said she just checked my mail and will be sending me the reservation link again , on receipt of there mail the prices were high she had sent me different and high room rates + additional cost for breakfast (it was already included in my booking ref image) - taking it further i replied to there mail attaching the same image but this time they even increased the prices of the room , overall poor experience with the bookings calling them 5 times and sending them a mail 4 times was just a waste of time and money and because of them i missed my booking at another hotel as it got full ...... will never recommend any one to expect anything from the hotel staff pathetic service

    « Good location, Small rooms »

    I spent one night in this place whilst on business in Paris. The location is good, with lots of restaurants, and shops around. I have to say also that the staff are very friendly. However I found the room and the bathroom too small for the rate charged (309€/night). I'm not sure I will return to this place again for the same rate.

    « Leisure Visit »

    Accommodations were excellent. Located near Metro station and bus route. Many cafes and restaurants are located in close proximity and are within walking distance. Grocery store is across the boulevard from the hotel. Recommend this hotel to travelers visiting Paris.

    « Smart and convenient »

    A stone's throw from the Metro. Stylish décor and a courteous welcome. I hate not having a proper bathtub - but have to say the shower [there are only showers] was superb - not a drop leaking out of the cubicle in the lovely bathroom with great 'Nuxe' amenities. Bed great and [for Paris] quite a reasonable sized room, lots of storage space, tea and coffee, speaker / charger for I-phone, varied pillows and immaculately clean. A delight!

    « good location, good value »

    positive: close to metro, clean rooms, friendly reception, good value (125€ single, breakfast included) neutral: breakfast (continental, in basement), small room (but within the acceptable range for Paris) negative: nothing

    « Good value, but not ideal for business travellers »

    The staff were all helpful and charming, from the reception desk to the cafe to the housekeeping staff. As is typical of older Parisian hotels, the rooms are tiny. Although well-designed to make the most of the small space and beautifully updated with contemporary fixtures, the room was not a suitable work environment. The desk was a narrow shelf and the only options for using it were to sit on the end of the bed or squeeze uncomfortably onto a tiny chair between the bed and the edge of the desk. Internet connection was extremely slow, unless you pay for an upgrade. That said, the included breakfast was very good value with a good selection of fresh breads, fruit, cheeses, etc. Would definitely consider for a leisure trip, but not for business.

    « Great hotel with polite staff and great metro links very close by. »

    Outstanding hotel with polite and friendly staff who will help you in any way they can. Well layed out and makes use if the space they have very well. Breakfast was decent with everything you could want I especially loved all the fresh fruit and cheeses. My only one failing was a single item regarding my room type where they lit my wife and I in a standard when we had booked an executive room but after speaking with my wife we weren't fussed and were quite happy with the one they gave us and of course they knocked the difference off the bill without question and with a sincere apologies. A great hotel which I'm sure our next visit to Paris will be first on our list.

    « Perfect Choice for Paris for A Couple on Holiday »

    We couldn't have been more pleased with our stay at this Best Western Premier. It was close to the train station (Gare du Nor) we used and the Metro stop was right on the corner. Transportation proximity was important to us since our stay in Paris was a short one. The room itself was excellent - modern decor, clean and comfortable. The fixtures and furniture were like new. The brunch offering was satisfactory and reasonably priced for the neighborhood. The front desk staff were friendly and extremely helpful with sightseeing tips and navigating the Metro to get the most our of our short stay - we really appreciated that. All in all, we can confidently recommend this hotel and would happily stay there again when we return to Paris.

    « Not the best choice-supper noisy room »

    The rooms are nice but don't fall for that. The area immediately outside the hotel is very dodgy. And the rooms facing the streets ( specially on the first floor) are supper noisy. Couldn't get any sleep at all. I asked for my room to be changed on my way out in the morning and they told me to pack my stuff and they would do it for me. When I returned to the hotel in the evening they told me they are full and it's impossible. Hopefully my stay was only for two nights. I don't recommend this hotel at all.

    « Convenience and value »

    Incredibly helpful staff, convenient location just beside metro, easy walk to Les halles, Montorgueille, Republique areas Lots of choices for eating out nearby. Rooms well designed with space to unpack. Comfy beds, nice shower and Nuxe products. Recommended

    « Clean hotel with great location »

    Ideally located, half way between the Gare Du Nord and the sights. Only saw the ground floor of the hotel, our room faced onto the street but it was not too noisy. Breakfast expensive so picked up breakfast on the go from the supermarket opposite. Bar operated by night porter and so do not expect a good socialising or meeting place.

    « Great hotel »

    Great hotel. Everything was near to perfect. Staff is extremely friendly. Great price. Great location. Modern with great charm. When my husband & I travel to Paris again, we will sure stay at this hotel again!

    « Perfect stay »

    All was very good.The romms at the hotel was a litlle bit to small.But Everything else was perfect.The Place was very central of all tou want to see.Good restaurants and breakfast very closed to the hotel.

    « Great hotel »

    Really great hotel, not too big and great location in Paris. Right next to a metro station and by some great places to eat. Easily able to walk into the main parts of Paris, seeing some culture on the way. Rooms extremely clean and great set up for a long weekend or a week. We will always stay here when we visit.

    « Great hotel »

    Great small hotel. Helpful staff. Clean rooms. Modern. Does what it says on the tin! Location could be perceived as a bit odd. Seems a bit scruffy round and about and a strange amount of ladies of the night(!), but it's very conveniently situated. Some good restaurants close by, particularly in Marais. Would highly recommend for s short break in Paris.

    « Great hotel for the price »

    Everything was really nice. The rooms were tiny, but were also explained in all of the reviews, so I knew what to expect. Previous reviews hit the nail on the head. The location is awesome (only a few kilometers from Notre Dame and the Louvre). The criticism woudl be that the breakfast is insanely expensive (I didn't buy it, bc it was so expensive). Also, the traffic outside is really loud, so it is tough to get a really restful night, despite how comfortable the bed is! Overall I would definitely recommend. The hotel was very nice and modern. Centrally located, so you are right in the middle of the action. Plenty of restaurants nearby and entertainment.


    We had a very unpleasant stay and we believe the experiences we had is unacceptable to everyone, not only us! We booked two rooms for three nights, check in on 19th Feb 2016, check out on 22nd Feb 2016. On Second day, when we back to hotel at night We found the BIN BAG WITH THE RUBBISH INSIDE WERE ON THE DESK, ESPECIALLY ON TOP OF THE FRUITS WE LEAVE IN THE PLATE! How terrible! We think we are quite lucky because of the cleaner took this mistake by forgeting take the bin bag away when she change it to a new one, otherwise we will eat the fruits. This is the very serious hygiene issue to make us risen the complain, but there are few other issues we found in three days, eg, dirty mop left for TWO DAYS on the table of my friends' room; cups leave on the table without cleaning; no one looks after the canteen downstairs, and leave the kitchen unlocked and with the food inside. When we raise the issues to the front desk manager, he has no sense about how serious it is, he keep explain to us he will ask the cleaning lady why she forgot take the Bin bag away after she change it. And we need to explain to him we will accept this mistake if she only forget the bin bag in the room, but we cannot accept she leave it on the table, it doesn't really matter whether there has fruits or not. And we did request to see the hotel manager, but she refused to see us, only ask us to send her a email and we did see her sit in the office when the front desk manager spoken to her. The conclusion are: 1, The hotel has very serious hygiene issues, as well as healthy and safety issues. 2, The hotel management is weak and not helpful; 3, Best Western Group doesn't have basic training, management and monitoring system in place, not a reliable chained-brand hotel at all! We are not going to stay in any of the Best Western hotel at all in the future!

    « Very pleasant stay »

    The rooms are very well equiped and decorated with grat taste, bathroom is very new and functional with a cascade shower, breakfast in a cosy atmosphere and very close to móur offices and Paris by Night.

    « Few days away! »

    This was mine and my boyfriends first visit to Paris which we have very much enjoyed! We stayed in a best western hotel in Amsterdam that's why this hotel was one of our first choices. Hotel was spotless and lovely reception area. Rooms are small but we loved ours, very cosy and modern. It is very noisy, we was on the top floor but it is situated on a main road. Didn't try breakfast at the hotel so can't comment. All the different attractions in Paris are quite a distance from each other so having the tube station right over the road was ideal to visit all the different places. There's also a small restaurant straight over the road called Le Central which we would definitely recommended. Had a lovely stay and would definitely return again.

    « Very good, with some minor problems. »

    The hotel is very good as location and quality/price ratio. The staff is fantastic They are all very kind and ready to assit you in all possible ways. They successfully solved a few problems with our shuttle service from the airport, and immediately provided a high level solution. The only problem I had was related to the moquette, which I absolutely don't like. When they clean the room, if they put the stuff on the moquette, the result will bebhaving hairs and other dirt on your bed, which is actually quite annoying. So the bed will not be perfectly clean. Anyhow the room is large and very nice. In general I would absolutely suggest this hotel for any type of stay, both for business, leisure or romantic trip to Paris. My vote is 9.

    « Great place to explore Paris »

    We originally had an airbnb booked which wasn't as expected so booked this hotel last minute. This turned out great as it's a perfect spot to explore the city. Everything is in easy walking distance and there are great restaurants all around. The hotel itself has great staff and comfy beds - although the rooms are quite small (to be expected for Paris). Would stay here again.

    « Good »

    Stayed at this hotel on 2 different occasions both time we enjoyed our stay and good location. Room size is ok, Friendly staff, good communication and multilingual and good breakfast. For a city like Paris can't complain.

    « just stay here! its fab! »

    great hotel. friendly receptionist on arrival (and throughout!) really made a difference. the hotel is bright, cheerful, fresh, clean. it all seems quite new. the room is on the small side but plenty adequate. fab walk in shower! mini bar so you have a fridge! there is a late night mini market out the hotel to the left for drinks all night. to the right out the hotel is a metro link and a tabac for cheap coffees etc and a supermarket for essentials (we bought in brekkie stuff as its upwards of 12 euro each for coffee and bun) hotel lets you print boarding cards off downstairs. there was a pleasant looking breakfast room but we didnt use it. close to lots of great bars and restaurants -head out to the left to rue bombardes off to the left is the cheapest greek/italian restaurant ever. gorgeous food!the bed was comfy, lots of pillows , tv, nicely done, top stay would go back! easy to get about to whole of paris from here.

    « Close to Nord Train Station »

    Double bed was comfortable. Room was very clean and the service was great. Metro station just across the street. Room was extremely quiet, bring a fan for white noise. No complaints. Did have the breakfast. Staff spoke English.

    « Pretty Good Hotel AWFUL WIFI CONNECTION »

    Stayed here during New Years. Nice neighbourhood, convenient location with Strasbourg-St.Denis Metro station steps away from the hotel. We had an Execetuvie Room which was still pretty small so I cant even imagine what the standard room was like... The wifi connection in our room was awful! Eventhough it's a pretty good hotel stay away from it if you require a fast and constant internet connection.

    « Best Western Premier Marais Grands Boulevards »

    Thoroughly enjoyed my stay at this hotel. The room was clean and comfortable. Great location as it is near two metro station. It's about a 20 minute walk to the Louvre from the hotel as well. The breakfast is overpriced so I would eat out rather than at the hotel.

    « The right combination of location, price and quality »

    Among the hotels of this range, that usually owned small and old rooms, with all the implications... the best western has renewed rooms and somehow bigger than usual for the center of Paris. since I am familiar with the Best western Brand from other countries, they hold a very good standard.

    « no hair dryer and dirty linen not a 4 star »

    we checked in for two rooms around 1pm. The very unfriendly front desk said room is not ready and come back in 1 hour. we went ate came back sitting in the loby. notice several people come in checked in and got a key. after sitting there for 1/2 hr. Went up to the desk and asked if our room was ready. The front desk said yes, just got ready. Gave us the first floor, when i asked if we could move a little higher, I was told "everyone wants higher rooms. No, with an attitude . I asked to add my best Western card number, I was told "no" you did not book thru us and you can't get points with a tone;. We got the keys went to the room. The room is small, nicely decorated by does not have a hair dryer. This is a 4 star hotel!! It was hot, we could not open the window because of the location and the street noise, so my wife removed the sheet from the comforter and we noticed a dark spot.. it was dry, it's an old stain and looked to be blood. They seemed to have washed the sheet, but not the comforter. Next morning at checkout i informed the front deask and showed a picture to the two people at the front desk. they did not care.. The reception desk lady and the lady that sits in the little office next to the desk saw the pictures and neither cared. The receptionist gave me my receipt. We left. this hotel is near a corner with bars and prostitutes. It is not in the best spot. what is more unacceptable is the unfriendly reception and the dry bad attitude. This not a 4 star hotel. 3 start is too good.

    « Chic Hotel »

    This is a very chic boutique hotel, which gets the balance just right. Some boutique hotels in the chain look more cheesy and a little tacky, but this is definitely a higher grade. The evening receptionist is very patient, calm and helpful. The executive room had a balcony overlooking the main street which had a lively buzz. But the soundproofed room was peaceful and without any disturbance. It is situated close to a metro station, shops and restaurants. So an ideal venue for anyone who wants to be close to everything the city centre has to offer.

    « Fantastic staff »

    Thank you to all the wonderful team for a fantastic stay in this lovely hotel. Clean & modern bedroom, lovely toiletries, dressing robes & slippers. Excellent breakfasts. All the staff were very friendly & helpful. Looking forward to staying here on our next visit to Paris.

    « Not your average Best Western! »

    A gem! The hotel has had a recent complete renovation and our room had many quality touches and showed great use of space. My wife and I enjoyed the busy but safe central location with restaurants, culture, history and loads of shopping nearby - including a supermarket for the best prices on wine, cheese and other happy hour ingredients. Also, literally 30 seconds to the metro! As with most Paris hotels, our room was small but there were so many positives including very comfortable beds, we were thrilled. Staff were courteous, personable and very helpful. A bit pricier than some, but worth it if you want quality and location. No hesitation in recommending.

    « Small conveniently located »

    The room was very small but well thought through. No space was lost. It was well decorated (modern style) and well appointed as long as you don't have loads of suitcases. Very clean too and good breakfast. I would stay there again.

    « Great bathroom »

    Booked the executive twin room which was slightly bigger. I always look for hotels with modern bathrooms to gauge it's worth :) Bathroom was very modern with Nuxe shower gel/shampoo/lotion. Shower has separate rain shower and handheld shower. Other amenities not available but can request it from reception. Comfy fluffy slippers and bathrobe were provided. Stayed in room 32 which has a nice corner view. Room relatively quiet for street view room. When you open the door you walk right into the bed. Guess being an older building, space is limited. Would be good if they installed those safety chains/locks on the door for added security. Checkin reception was wonderful - Mr. Amir (apologies for misspellings) was very friendly / helpful. However checkout left us feeling unwelcomed to return. He told us we owed €4.96 for tax which we paid but there was no thankyou or anything. I looked at him waiting for him to tell us if all was set. He just blankly looked at us and didn't say a word. I thanked him (I probably shouldn't have!) and turned to leave. Shouldn't he have thanked us instead for being paying guests?! Afterall he's in the hospitality business. Overall despite that one thing, hotel is clean, newly renovated and near metro. Plenty of supermarkets nearby too.

    « Cute, but no good for business travel »

    The real game-breaker here is that the wifi is consistently horrible. It's impossible to do any work from your room. The rooms are also extremely small - barely larger in any direction than a queen size bed. It is otherwise nice and comfortable but really not somewhere I'll stay again.

    « Paris 2ième »

    It is a fine area with the Grand Boulevards and interesting side streets. The hotel is well situated. The standard rooms i tried were fine with double glazed french doors towards the boulvard. A good breakfast and coffee. The service also fine. Recommendable.

    « Excellent Hotel »

    The hotel has been recently renovated and is now a 4 star. I booked through the hotel website and we had a very nicely decorated street facing room on the 2nd floor with a small balcony. The bed was very comfortable, the bathroom had large thick fluffy towels and Nuxe products. Wifi was good.We had breakfast included in the rate, and this was served downstairs. We enjoyed our stay,and would certainly stay here again.

    « Small, boutique hotel, handy location and price »

    Would recommend. Good location. Room smaller than expected, wifi slow, corridor smelt a bit! But overall good - stylish, near metro stop, friendly staff There were lots of people hanging around on the street in the nearby area - so that was a minor worry - and the shower was so powerful you couldnt use it full strength or it flooded the enclosure!

    « Friendly staff and clean, nice room »

    Stayed in this hotel for 2 nights in May 2015. We were unsure how this hotel would be as there were mixed reviews, but overall we were happy with the stay. The manager kindly reduced the price for us before we even arrived. I had booked on a best price guarantee but then a few weeks later found they had reduced it considerably. After a member of staff initially saying the price would not be matched, I received a further email from the manager saying the price would be reduced. When we arrived the staff were very helpful and friendly, and the overall look of the hotel was very nice. It was small but the outside was nicely presented and the lobby area was well decorated. The room was small as to be expected in Paris, maybe a little smaller than it looked online but no issue. If you were staying more than a couple of days you may want a larger room but for a short stay it has everything you need. The shower room was great, very clean and a good shower which is always a bonus! The bed was comfy. We were at the back of the hotel which looked out onto other buildings so maybe request a room at the front of the hotel. The breakfast was ok, fairly limited selection and the waitress bought the ham and cheese around so you could only have one slice of each, but there was scrambled egg, pastries and other items which made up for this. There were 2 members of staff which weren't particularly friendly, but the other 2 were very friendly and helpful which more than made up for this. We chose the Bastille area as we were visiting Paris to go to a gig at the Bataclan. This was a 10 minute walk away which was perfect for us. There are a few restaurants around and some nice shops to browse. We ate at a burger bar on the main shopping street which was lovely. We uses the metro to get everywhere, and because there were 2 stations on 2 different lines located a 5 minute walk from the hotel it was easy to get to most places. We went to the Moulin Rouge for an evening and this took quite a while to get to but we were expecting that. The hotel staff told us the best way to get there and it was easy enough.

    « 24-hr layover in Paris »

    Had to spend one additional nigh in Paris because of a taxi's strike and we picked this hotel because of the location and the rate. It met all our expectations as the location is perfect (for 2 min walking distance from metro, plenty of bars + restaurants and great for shopping). The hotel is modern yet respectful of the historical side of the building, the breakfast served downstairs was good and service very professional. Rooms are quite small (hello, it's Paris) but the bathroom was large and super clean. Highly recommended for a short stay.

    « An Oasis »

    I found this hotel last minute when I needed to leave an awful hotel I booked before. It was just what I needed to rescue my last few days in Paris. The hotel was recently remodeled with bright and tasteful colors. The room was small but was very well done. There was a desk and chair, another huge sitting chair, decent closet and neat bathroom with shower. I liked the bedding and furnishings which included a mini bar and an ipod dock. My room was on the top floor and offered a window that open to show some of the Parisan rooftops. It was comfortable, the staff helpful and location is central between two train stations one only steps away that can connect to the airport line easily. I will am likely to stay here on my next trip to Paris for the comfort, convenience and affordability.

    Stayed three nights and was very impressed with the updated clean rooms! Modern furniture, comfortable bed, nice balcony and fresh bathroom. Coffee maker in room, however make sure you get the coffee replenished every day. The room was small but this is Paris so I don't expect anything else. Very impressed with Francoise at the front desk - very friendly and helpful! Would definitely stay here again!
