This was my first visit to Paris and the it couldn't have been any better! I can only echo what many people have said before, the location of this hotel is superb. The Louvre one block away, Place de la Concorde and the Champs-Élysées a short stroll away. There is an abundance of cafes, bistros and restuarants close by too.... More

This hotel is in a great location....steps away from very good restaurants and a few blocks from major sights of interest. The room was typical Paris size, but was very clean and the staff were awesome, could not ask for a more helpful and accommodating group. Would highly recommend staying here.

the hotel itself is tiny but has a lovely design theme from when you enter the hotel lobby, reception and breakfast area. It pokes fun at its name sake and this continues when you enter the tiny lift that transports you to your room. Although the rooms are small, they are well appointed. The hotel is well positioned which gives... More

First of all the location could not be better, short walk away from the louvre area, and the metro is easily accessible. The decoration of the hotel is wonderful full of vibrant colors. Room cleanliness is good. Breakfast is weal served. The only con is the rooms on the 6th floor. No direct elevator, only to the 5th and you... More

The place itself, the rehabilitation of the building, the staff and the amenities were good, the honesty bar is also a good concept; but tiny spaces are not a synomym of comfort, and french products are better than the ones they gave us for breakfast: bread, croissant, cheese, foie gras, etc. Last summer, my friend gave a magnific present to...

Bonjour Ian R! What a nice comment... It is a pleasure to see that even for month after, the Crayon Rouge has left you this lovely souvenir of Paris!
