We found this hotel for one night on our last night in town. SO GLAD we did! Great location, staff was friendly, and even though the room was small, we spent hardly any time in it as there is so much to do nearby! The park at Les Halles includes a playground that helped with a toddler.

The location is perfect hidden in a quiet street, next to both metro, RER and busses. Instead of minibars, there´s a ¨honest bar¨ in the lobby, a great concept, where you just write down what you take. The most positive thing about this hotel is without a doubt the staff. They were so friendly and helpful, and made my stay... More

We stayed at this hotel when me and my best friend came to Paris the first time. The Location is amazing, it's close to a lot of attractions, ex.louvre, pont des art bridge. The staff are very friendly and room is very clean. I will definitely recommend the hotel and stay here again next time in Paris.

My wife and I stayed 2 nights during our Europe trip. The hotel is ideally located for tourists. Walking distance to the RER so you can go straight to the airport for just 9EUR.

The staff at Hotel Crayon was very friendly and helpful. The room were just right and the decor was fantastic! We were located central to everything so could walk everywhere with ease. They even arranged a private car to take us to the train station upon leaving. Would definitely stay again.

Dear Meghan L. Thank you for writing your review on our Tripadvisor page. Hotel Crayon is always a surprise from the moment you walk in the door, Le Crayon doesn't look like a Hotel, more like an artist appartment. We are glad you enjoyed our concept.

Everything about my stay at the Hotel Crayon was great. I arrived early before check-in time, and was able to get into my room several hours beforehand, which was a welcome surprise. The convenient location made the small amount of time it took for my room to be prepared a negligible issue. I was given WiFi access for the hotel... More
