Stayed on the twin bed at the back of the hotel with no elevator. This isn't a problem as I've been walking half of Paris touring. There is also no AC. The room is very clean and modern. It's nice and quiet. I was contemplating on taking on airbnb and much closer to the centre but this hotel is better... More

Hotel Magellan is located in a quiet neighborhood about 10 minutes walk from the nearest metro station, which we found the most convenient way to get around Paris. It's a small hotel but very modern. The rooms are average to larger-than-average for Europe. The bathroom was smallish but large enough to get the job done. And, there was a retractable... More

I was lucky enough to visit Paris last week, and my husband had booked this hotel for myself and our daughter for four nights mid week. I can't rate the hotel highly enough! The staff were very friendly and helpful (we returned home the day after the French Air Traffic Controllers had been on strike, and the staff were very... More

This place is priced just right to fit the two tours we were going to attend. The Culinary Latin Tour and The Eiffel Tower & Seine River Cruise. The subway was a 10 min. walk around the corner and down the street. Very Paris like neighborhood and handy restaurant to take in our first night which also a Trip Advisor... More

My wife and I just returned from a six-night stay in this hotel, and both of us were extremely happy with the staff, location, ambience -- everything, really -- this hotel had to offer. First, this hotel is located in a quiet, residential street with no other hotels around. This really allows you a more intimate, local experience rather than... More

I chose this hotel for my wedding weekend in Paris. We booked 9 rooms and the communication with the hotel prior to arrival was good. When we arrived a very nice staff met us at the counter and they had prepared a lot of information about Paris for my guests. The rooms were quickly (2 minutes) to check in and... More

The hotel is located north of the main Paris attractions but it's just 5 min walk to the nearest metro and RER station and from there only 10-15 to the city center. Our room was very clean and nicely done. It had a modern touch that fitted well with the rest of the hotel decoration. I really didn't like the... More
