This hotel was not close to the centre of Paris but easily accessible to main attractions if you want to be in the less touristy part of the city. Staff were very friendly, rooms clean and although small, perfectly adequate. Breakfast was very good and there are some wonderful restaurants in a beautiful little street just a short walk away.....

We stopped here for 4 nights after reading the reviews on here, web were not disappointed. We had to contact the hotel over our booking after we had booked and they were courteous and quick to reply. We thought the location might be not very good, but there is a metro station about 10 mins walk away and it felt... More

We stayed four nights at Hotel Cardinal in April 2014 and were positively surprised by our large room and how well situated the hotel was. Clean, fresh and friendly! A very good standard of rooms and service and we enjoyed the french express breakfast of coffe, orange juice and croissant at a very affordable price. The hotel is very well... More

The room is very european, meaning there isnt much space- but what do you expect. Its great that they have a person at the front desk 24hrs, so you can leave whenever, we had an early train to catch- so it made this really convenient. the directions from the website wasn't' great, i definitely recommend looking at directions before hand....

We loved the location of this hotel, close enough to Les Gobbelins metro station to reach all the sights we wanted to see but in a quiet neighbourhood. We were often late getting back to our room and we always felt safe in the area. We found the staff to be friendly and knowlegable, and we were so thankful that... More

I found the hotel easy to find and in a great location. It's about a 5 minute walk to the Les Gobbelins metro station. The neighbourhood felt safe, with cafés, restaurants and shops nearby (including a supermarket and tobacconist which sells stamps). The free wifi was great. The receptionists and cleaners were lovely and offered great service. The only down... More

The hotel was clean but the rooms were small. Not too far from the metro which made travelling to sights accessible. Several little cafes and bars close by. Ideal for short breaks but not for anything longer than about 3 or 4 days.

A warm welcome from English speaking staff. Good appetising and plentiful breakfast Only downside was the mattress which was "hollow in the centre" All hotels should change mattresses on an annual basis.
