Too small in every regard. I felt clasteophobic in every part of the hotel. Room is so tiny it's almost funny. Had to walk across the bed to get to the bathroom, which is no more than a shower stall smacked in the corner of this tinny room. Basically, a human doesn't fit. And I'm not a 200 pound American!

I read some negative reviews about this hotel which had me thinking whether I had made the right choice by choosing to stay here. Yes I did choose well. It's a great place to base yourself for a short break in Paris, the location is ideal, with a Metro stop a short walk away, and lots of interesting cafes and... More

We stayed here last week for 3 nights. This is the worst place I have stayed in , in whole life. Bed is 5' away from toilet and shower. You can not use the sink if you open shower or toilet door. Bed is on the floor and it is very noisy. And in the elevator only one person with... More

If you want a hotel with a standard design this isn't the place for you! It's quirkily designed for sure as the pictures here demonstrate Now the upside! - Rooms have an MP3 player dock - The free WIFI works like a dream - Breakfast is more than decent - The staff are very kind and helpful - The neighbourhood...

Good location, 5 min from the metro and from a bus that takes you straight to the Louvre and another to Gare du Nord. Lively street with plenty of cafes and bars, most open until 1 am. The hotel staff is helpful and the room very clean. It is indeed a bit cramped but if you spend all day outside... More

On positive side, fair to say that I had an acceptable stay. It's relatively cheap and booking with 6 hours notice did what I needed to be in town. The design is interesting. Highly stylised. Great colours and interesting approach to room design. Breakfast is basic but satisfying and a nice room to eat in. Wouldn't go back but it... More

I booked it by Internet without checking the details. The room is a cabin. Not bad IF the architect had given some thoughts about the guests, not only a quirky design. No bed. Mattress on the floor. The room could have fitted a bed if they wanted to. The furniture is in wrong places. Which makes it uncomfortable and cramped.... More

I found this hotel early this year on a pit stop for 3 days in Paris. Good price, nice location if you like alternative shops and environment. Metro 5 min walk. The hotel appeals to ecological attitude, nice breakfast. Rooms are very small, not ideal for families. Perfect for anyone who's is visiting the city on backpacker or business and... More

As a base from which to explore Paris, this is a fantastic hotel. We chose Hi Matic because of its convenient location (close to a Metro station and lots of bars and restaurants), environmental credentials and overall unique character. The beds were incredibly comfortable and breakfast was included, which is unique for Paris. The breakfast was delicious and filling and... More
