The hotel is housed in a building of the end of 1800. It is small but with a real French atmosphere and style. It is walking distance to the Metro station, the Latin quarter, Sorbonne and Notre Dame. My room was small but with attention to details: decored walls and French style furnishings. the level of cleanliness is good. The... More

We stayed there in late October, 2013. To be sure, rooms are compact, as befitting an establishment that's been around for quite a few years. I'm pushing the memory capacity, but I think it goes back to the 19th century. It's in a great neighborhood in terms of restaurants, retail and two Metro stations nearby. Le Mouffetard is within easy... More

OMG, the bedroom was so small that we could NOT open the bathroom door, because it bumped on the bed, besides the window opened to an indoor "courtyard" which echoed all the sounds from the other rooms...location fine - not the best, close to Notre Dame, for sure, but everything else either you take the train or w a l...

Fantastic location a short walk from Notre Dame - Staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly all around. I agree with the other comments re the thin walls, also the pillows were missing and in their place we had a double bolster cushion, we didnt get around to addressing this while were there, but am sure alternatives would have been offered...

Unique, very French and romantic hotel. Rooms are small but clean and we had a wonderful view overlooking Paris chimney pots and the spire of Notre Dame. The elevator saved us the long climb to the top floors. The staff helped us with maps, airport transportation and local sites. They were warm and gracious hosts that made my first trip... More

We had a wonderful stay at hotel familia and would highly recommend it. The bed was comfortable and the room was decorated so beautifully. We got a great rate on the Internet. The hotel is in a fantastic location. The only down side, and it was a significant down side is the very, very thin walls. We were next to... More

Delightfully cute hotel in a great location, close to everything. The room was on the small side but that's to be expected and the breakfast was a little disappointing as they only served bread and a croissant. I recommend heading next door to the American Cafe for a huge and cheap breakfast (for those travelling on a budget). The beds... More

This is our second time staying at the Familia and we were not disappointed. Our room (designated "superior" was on the 4th floor, on the interior side and was a nice size, comfortable and quiet. It had a couch, which we used for our suitcases, along with a small closet. The bathroom was clean and well-appointed. The staff was friendly... More

Four of us (two couples), trained to Paris from a walking trip in Provence and rented 2 rooms in the Familia Hotel for 3 nights (after which we flew back to the U.S. out of CDG airport). The cost per couple per night was about $150 which also covered breakfast for two. The hotel is located in the Latin Quarter... More

I stayed in the hotel four nights in early October 2013. Found the hotel on Trip Advisor and it was also highly recommended by Fodor's as a good choice for a budget hotel in Paris. The room was on the 6th (top) floor and very small, but adequate and clean. There was a musty smell in the bathroom, because of... More
