Stayed here for 1 night on a business trip. Great location & close to Metro. But: started off badly when my room key appeared not to work & when I went back to reception to ask for help, the reception staff were fairly rude & moaned about how tired they were... Obviously I wasn't at all tired (as the customer)... More

The hotel itself is adequate, but the staff are exceptionally rude. We were greeted by an angry and rude member of staff at reception upon arrival. We were forced to downgrade our room size, due to a communication problem, which was entirely the fault of the hotel. The rooms are very small and very basic, that is why I opted... More

Nice hotel, staff is friendly and helpfull and is perfectly located. We asked for a bigger bed due to my length, still got a small bed but we got a fairly large room on the fifth floor. To room was nice and clean. The only complaint is that they have pretty thin walls and we could hear everything that was... More

Easy booking by email and immediate confirmation was the highlight of the stay. It's not too easy to find but once you find it you will love the location. Right in the heart of Le Marais, with all the trendy bards and shops around, few minutes from Notre Dame. Hotel is in quite street but because there is zero window... More

So convenient, yet on a fairly quiet street. Close to some nice restaurants, boulangerie, metro spot, walking distance to many popular sites. The front desk was super friendly and helpful finding places to eat, etc. The rooms were small and basic, but that is what we expected. They were clean and neat and the beds were very comfortable (although also... More

Positive ...... location. The hotel is easily reached from 2 metro stations. It is also within walking distance of many Parisian highlights. Negative ....... rudeness. We can put up with many things on our travels but to be verbally abused by a staff member is something we found very distasteful. When we returned to the hotel at 4pm after being... More

So it's not the most expensive hotel (280 euros for two days) so, bearing that in mind, it deserves its 4 star rating. The entrance hall and friendly staff are very welcoming, and there is a lovely spiral staircase (which we never used, we always took the lift). The room we had on the fourth floor was pretty bland and... More

I love the Marais and this hotel is in a perfect location. The room was adequate and clean. There was no hairdryer but we were provided one by the front desk. The staff was nice. I think this is the right place if you want to stay in the Marais and not spend too much.

This was a great place to stay if you would rather spend your money seeing Paris than staying in your room. The room was adequate, clean and a good safe place to rest your weary bones after a full day of sight seeing. The room we stayed in was quiet and we never had a problem sleeping. There are plenty...

The hotel is located in a very nice and safe area of central Paris. Easy to find even for first-timers, accessible by subway and buses. There are plenty of restaurants and amenities close by. Throughout our stay, the staff was very pleasant and helpful. The lobby and room (with balcony) were clean and decorated with taste, they felt very homey... More
