Beautifully designed small hotel in a terrific central location that allowed me to go sit in the Tuilleries until dusk. As the name suggests, lots of colorful design. I stayed four days in a room of my favorite colors, teal and purple, with french doors the opened onto a nice view of apartment life across the way. The shower was... More

Immaculate, well-staffed hotel. Our room was very small, but quiet, nicely decorated, and clean. The bed was perfectly comfortable, and checkin/checkout was a breeze. The photos on the hotel website seem totally accurate to me, so if you like what you see there, you won't be disappointed. Front desk was very friendly when helping us make dinner reservations and reserve... More

Stayed in this hotel in March 2014. Hotel is very comfortably located. An attractive design of the hotel overall, clean and very well done rooms, a bit small though.. I can also mention friendly and helpful staff. Would definitely recommend and come back myself next time!

Hotel Crayon is a cute little boutique hotel right by the Louvre. The location could not have been better or more central. There was also a huge subway station just a couple of blocks away, which was perfect. Awesome staff, great rooms. And the water pressure in the shower was outstanding!!! This was so nice to have after a long... More

My friend and I decided on Hotel Crayon because of its location (near the Louvre and the metro) and because it seemed like a great value--and it was. The staff was very helpful and accommodating--despite this being a small hotel, there was always someone at the front desk to answer our questions! The room was small, but very cute and... More

My mother and I decided to stay at this hotel because of its location (10 minute walk to the Louvre), price point (being much cheaper than other hotels near the Louvre), and reading previous good reviews. The rooms are very cute, clean, updated, and not cramped. Our beds were very comfortable and the hotel maids were sweet. The bathroom was... More

We arrived by Eurostar and were able to take the metro to Les Halles and make a short walk to Hotel Crayon. The hotel has a community vibe and feels much like a college co-op though much much cleaner and with better decor. :) All the staff are extremely kind and helpful. They are quick to help and look up... More

Beautiful rooms. Each room looks unique with a different theme. Nice walking distant to the Lourve and L'Atelier restaurant. Nice and quiet neibourhood with a supermarket close by. And if you want to try tasty reasonable French food just walk to les fines gueules restaurant around the corner. You can get fresh fried foie gras (not pate style) for only... More

This is my first time in Paris and won't be my last. I came here with my son who is 14. I love this place. The staff is very very friendly and incredibly helpful. Their English is great and they've even helped me plan my tours and recommend places to eat and things to do for me and a teenager... More
