Everything's tiny, but the room was comfortable and clean, the front desk very helpful and knowledgeable. Breakfast was great. We enjoy meandering (ie, getting lost on foot) when we travel, so it was fun to wander the streets and alleys around the hotel.

I stayed at Hotel Crayon from 27th to 30th March in a single room. I booked based on the many positive reviews I read about on tripadvisor. For a single room, I was expecting a hole however it was of a fairly good size for one person. The bed was bigger than that of a single bed and the bathroom... More

My wife and I booked this hotel due to the excellent reviews it had had recieved and it did not disappoint. The location was that central we did not use the metro or any cabs on our whole stay! The staff were curtious and couldn't do enough for us and the rooms were really well presented in funky colours. The... More

The hotel is ideally located in Rue de Bouloi within a few hundred metres of the Lourve which I feel is exactly the most central spot in Paris and is just a few minutes walk from the RER train station Chatelet Des Halles where you would arrive from the airport CDG. The reception area is very welcoming, being arty and... More

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights in September. This was our first time in Paris, and we were both very pleased with this hotel. The location was within walking distance of several sights we visited. For other areas which required a taxi, the hotel staff was very helpful in calling and arranging for a cab to pick... More

If you want the romantic Paris experience then this is the hotel it has the mojo. Friendly staff and while the rooms are very small the decor and quaint atmosphere of the hotel outweighs this. Very well located you walk out the door and feel you are immersed in Parisian lifestyle. Surrounded by a large range of restuarants. Highly recommned!!!

My teenaged son and I stayed here for 6 days during our trip to France. We loved it! The rooms, as we had read, were small but how much time do you spend in them? They were decorated in a fun way with funky colors and wallpaper. The bathrooms were very modern and clean. The location was very convenient to... More

I found Hotel Crayon to be a charming little boutique hotel in an absolutely perfect location. As soon as I stepped through the front doors of the Hotel my eyes lit up. It was so vibrant and refreshingly bright. There was beautiful art all over the walls, a giant pencil for decoration, exquisite wallpaper, a goldfish named Popeye... It was... More
