We used this hotel on a previous trip to Paris. it is in a good location just outside of the busy tourist areas but with easy reach of two metro stops. It is near shops restaurants and a short walk takes you to the Eiffel Tower. At the moment the rooms are being updated and modernised but this didn't impinge... More

It was perfect for our 5 days in Paris. It's very close to the metro (Charles Micheles is 4 minutes away) and Dupleix at only 10 minutes. The hotel is placed on a quiet street and I found it amazing to wake up in the morning and hear birds chirp. The room was new, clean and although it's a bit... More

We stayed here for our honeymoon in Paris. While it is absolutely tiny, it's was perfect for us because we just need a base from which to explore the city. It was quite inexpensive too which was great. The tiny rooms just add to the character of this hotel. We would return in the future.

My mother and I spent 3 nights at the Ideal Hotel from the 6th of October. We chose this hotel for the location; walking distance to the Eiffel Tower and the Metro close by. We had a twin room which was very small but suited our purpose. It was clean and felt very Parisian. Beds were very comfortable. The bistro... More

The hair dryer was not working in our room. Thankfully, the staff allowed me to use the hair dryer in another room for the next... More
