No further meals. TV good quality, comfortable beds, clean bathroom, when cool heat adequate in small rooms.

This was my second visit to Paris after about eight years. This was for a conference, but I was determined to enjoy Paris, too! So I skipped the 5-star hotels and booked in a reasonably priced traditional Paris hotel. I was not disappointed by my choice. This is a very clean, tastefully arranged hotel. Very good for relaxing your body... More

My husband and I stayed at this hotel 20 years ago on our first trip to Paris. I don't think much has changed - it's still a definite 2-star property. That being said, there are several reasons to consider this property. First, they have triple rooms (we returned this time with our 13-year old daughter), which many hotels do not.... More

I have stayed here 6 times over the last 10 years, really nice owners, rooms are very very basic and basic bathrooms, but the location is great, at the bottom of the famous Rue de Mouffetarde and turn right. The boulangerie on the corner of the street is great.

This was my second visit inside of a year to this hotel. There are a lot of positives - the value is terrific, the location is lovely with all kinds of great things within walking distance, the Metro is close by, the coffee in the morning is really nice and the staff is friendly for the most part. The downside... More

Nice hotel in a great neighborhood. The staff was friendly and tolerated my awful French. Well located for easy walks to Paris attractions and very close to a good metro stop. We will stay there again.

staff were friendly and efficient, the room and bathroom were clean, and the maid left us chocolates every day. Located very close to metro stations, cafes, creperies and even Starbucks around the corner. The breakfast was a bit steep at 9 euros but the quality was very good. Highly recommended for those looking for a tidy and neat little place... More

We chose to come back to the Hotel De l'Esperance because we were pleased with it last year and felt it represented good value. We have not been disappointed. Last year we stayed in the rooms that go for ten euros a night more and have bathtubs. Since we are just as happy to shower, we chose the rooms with... More

I would recommend this hotel anytime. It is a two star establishment and should be considered as this. This small family run hotel is well situated for sight seeing, metro, and is located close to rue Mouffetard. The hotel is clean, rooms are adequate by Paris 2 star standards. We could hear the woman in the next room talking rather... More

Quaint accommodation and 2nd time staying here over the yrs. No money appears to be going back into the hotel, but everything very functional and clean. Noisy narrow front street and no soundproofing in this hotel. Clearly 2 star at best. Staff can be a bit indifferent and all too often, abrupt. Don't go for over priced pastries and coffee... More
