The hotel is very well located, very near to Louvre Museum and in a very nice neighborhood. From there, you can go easily to important places as Notre Dame Cathedral & D´orsey..The hotel is very comfortable and the decoration is very nice. The staff is very kind. I really enjoy my first time in Paris!!

Being in 1st Arr. can sometime bust your travel budget, but the Hotel Crayon is in a great central location. Our room, 602, was in the converted attic. The elevator (nice to have btw) only goes to the 5th floor, then you take a short climb up to the 6th. After you accept this, it really doesn't become an issue.... More

I arrived at the hotel crayon, having booked the crayon rouge, and asked where the Rouge was-but was told that I would be staying in this hotel. No biggie-I think they're pretty much the same. I stayed in 2 rooms. The 1 st was the one person room, which was tiny, but I guess that's normal for Paris. When we... More

This is a very quirky boutique hotel that we enjoyed very much. The owner/artist has decorated the hotel and rooms with interesting art and bright stylish furniture. It is in an old renovated building (like most of Paris?) and seemed typical of the buildings in central Paris. There is a very nice feeling in the building, it is welcoming and... More

We came over to Paris for parisphoto and stayed in this lovely hotel. The rooms were little but cosy , the bedding perfect and a really invigorating shower. We had a delicious self service breakfast of eggs, cheese and ham and croissants which set us up perfectly for a walk around Paris. The staff are charming and extremely helpful. All... More

Hotel and room is really small but great location. Only a short walk to the lourve, royal palais, lovers bridge etc. Next to it is a good Japanese restaurant. Friendly hotel staff as well. Good value for money. Should consider ordering a cab with hotel to the airport as it is cheaper at a fixed rate especially at peak hour... More

This hotel was really cool. The room was super small but colorful and eclectic. I did not have a problem with the size, since we didn't plan on spending a lot of time in the room, its Paris, after all! Location was amazing, close to everything. The service was great, the people were very caring and they recommended some fantastic... More

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!

Staying in Louvre / Palais-Royal

Neighborhood Profile
Louvre / Palais-Royal
From the majestic Louvre to the regal Palais-Royal, this neighborhood oozes luxury. The grand arches along Rue de Rivoli are shadowed by mosaics in front of decorated vitrines and hotels. Place Vendôme is lined with the world’s best jewelers and their glittering window displays. Every other establishment has someone to open the door for you or park your car. You can spend hours gazing at its haute couture shops or lingering over a meal at any of its chic eateries. After all that indulgence, the Tuileries gardens provide stately respite, while theaters compete for your applause. It's a neighborhood that draws admirers from around the world, all attracted to the luxe life in Paris.
