Went to Paris on 23 rd may 2012.... I can't put to words how different this hotel is.. Is near to every thing and the rooms are really different. I had the one in the picture I've put up. Lovely lovely staff so polite and helpful reception open 24 hours. Honesty bar which is a fridge that you can help... More

Very convenient location! 5 min walk from the louvre and palais royal train station. Very clean and modern, rooms were small though, like we could hardly open our luggages (large ones). Bed was excellent, very comfy! Bathroom, modern but sink was tiny. Didier, was helpful and nice. Quite pricey for the size of the room but it's expected in Paris.... More

The other reviews of Hotel Crayon accurately describe the hotel. The rooms are small, but brightly decorated. The elevators and halls are tiny, but seem to be consistent with feedback read on many other central Paris hotels. The location was lovely - just a few minutes walk to the Louvre, and close to my office near the Bourse Metro stop.... More

Very good location, close to Louvre and Les Halles. On a small street so not noisy at night. Original "crayon" theme adds some character. Very friendly staff. Recently renovated with high quality beds, bathroom fixtures. However, underneath the very nice skin, it is still your typical Paris hotel - small rooms and not inexpensive.

I cannot recommend this little, artsy hotel more highly. It is situated very near to Les Halles metro and the Louvre and not far from the Centre Pompidou. Even better, it's a short walk to the "bo-bo" (bourgouis/bohemian) area in and around Rue Montorgueil and the really lovely Passage de Grand-Cerfs (many small shops with the most charming objects, clothes,...

This is a cute and quirky hotel. First off our room was decorated in orange and was tiny, just enough room to manoeuvre around the bed. The bathroom was tiny too. But, and it's a big but, the bed was the most comfortable I've ever slept in. Ever. Great power shower too, and friendly staff.

First off, FANTASTIC LOCATION! About 5 minute walk to the Louvre or Les Halles (major Metro/RER station). And this hotel has great personality...no boring wallpaper or standard hotel artwork here! Everything kept very clean. The room itself was a bit tight (with a king size bed + desk & 2 chairs + armoire; NOTE: no alarm clock), but the bathroom... More

After two weeks of staying in hostels, I met up with my boyfriend in Paris for a night at Hotel Crayon. The concierge/manager/owner was extremely welcoming when I arrived that day around 10:30 am, and was able to arrange it so that I could check in 3 hours earlier than normal. We booked a suite at around 220 euros -... More

Having stayed in several hotels in Paris, this one was in the best location. I would book a bigger room next time but the beds, shower and general ambience were good. The great location means that for Eurostar passengers, it is straight down Metro Line 4 from the Gare du Nord and then only a short walk from the Les... More
