I absolutely loved this hotel. The decor is very much to my taste (but may not be for everyone). Very colorful and fun. Lovely sitting areas and breakfast area. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Great location close to the Louvre and Notre Dame - but also the very quaint and interesting neighborhoods of St. Paul's and Marais.

Highlights were a glass of wine and canapés on arrival, great décor, comfortable beds, and a great location. The staff were friendly, and the rooms were kept clean each day. We loved the shower with its cool lighting!

It is important to be clear that this is a VERY small boutique hotel. I stayed here because I was in a bind needing a room for a last minute trip. The rating was high and comments good. I would say that this is one of two times that the tripadvisor community let me down. The location is good, no... More

Our second stay at Hotel Crayon and as consistently great as the first visit! The hotel itself is fun and quirky in decor and the staff exceptional in recommendations and assistance. Didier, particularly, is a great asset to the front desk and always ready with a friendly chat or suggestions for activities to do. The location is great too, not... More

From a previous trip to Paris I remembered the pain in my feet from my Louvre day, there was so much to see but my poor feet could no longer carry me. So this trip I set my requirements on a no longer than 5 minute walk from the Louvre so I could come and have a mid day rest... More

I stay in a lot of hotels and Hotel Crayon is really something cool. The room I was in exceeded my expectations, there's not a detail of out of place. It's so interestingly done! Staff was very helpful, including letting me check in 8 hours early.

Having stayed in a mix of hotels and Airbnbs in Paris over the years, I came across Hotel Crayon by Elegancy on Top10.com almost by accident when I set the filters to show me hotels trending positively on social media in Paris. What a find! I had a 4-day work/pleasure trip, and Hotel Crayon proved to be a total gem.... More

As the name suggests, this place is bright and colorful, conveying a playful sense of fun in the heart of Paris... but feeling like it is in an oasis of quietude. You can walk everywhere from here: the metro, cafes, restaurants, the Louvre, and other attractions. Staff are helpful (in contrast to the reputation of Parisians!). Initially Paris was just... More

Tucked into a little side street just a couple of blocks from the Louvre, Hotel Crayon is a charming place to stay. The staff were very pleasant and helpful, the room spotless and comfortable and the location extremely convenient to the railroad station and local sites. Nice choice of cafes and bistros close by. This was a great find and... More

A small but very cozy and clean hotel, off the Louvre street in the center of Paris. At a five minutes walking distance is the metro station and the bus stop. Although it is surrounded with bistro, cafeterias, restaurants and a lot of shops, is considered to be one of the most quiet hotels in Paris. At the reception Melodie,... More
