Stayed for 3 nights after reading good reviews just days before a week-end trip to Paris. Staff in Reception friendly & welcoming, especially the lady that politely guided me by phone from the underground station to the Hotel, having forgotten my map back in England before travelling.

Just returned from a 4 day break. Everything was perfect, yes the rooms are small but everything you need is there. The staff are a credit, very helpful, rooms spotless and a super comfortable bed to return to after a day's sightseeing. Metro is only 10 minutes walk and from there you can get to anywhere. Several restaurants close by,... More

The Magellan is a comfortable option on a quiet neighborhood, with restaurants, supermarkets and the a great subway line. The hotel is cozy, small rooms (as any hotel in Paris), but good enough for a good night of sleep after a day walking on Paris. There is restaurants and markets nearby, so you can dine out or even buy some... More

We have just returned from this lovely hotel after a short break in Paris. It is in a quiet neighbourhood with several restaurants nearby and within walking distance of all the main sights. In fact we did not use the metro once, preferring to walk everywhere as you see so much more. The room was a good size and very... More

Beautiful hotel, so comfortable and quiet. Staff was very helpful. Close walking distance to the Arc De Triumph, and other areas. Lovely sitting area inside and nice outdoor patio. They offered bar service, so at the end of the day, we could sit and review our day's events with a nice glass of wine. The breakfast was wonderful. Our last... More

Great hotel in quiet neighbourhood. Only about a 5 minute walk max to the nearest metro station. Super clean rooms and comfy beds. Front desk staff was fantastic. Morning breakfast was adequate and the orange juice amazing! Would definitely recommend and would stay here again if we come back.

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
