The manager was lovely, very passionate about Paris, and wanted to make sure we were okay with seeing things. This was our third time in Paris, so we were happy just wandering and he was fine with that. But he was there if we needed any help. Would stay here again.

Receptionist was HORRIBLE. I had a friend come upstairs for a bit and the receptionist kept calling and telling me to kick out my friend because it was we were not allowed to have a third person in the room, and if he wanted to visit we'd have to go downstairs. Bed had bed bugs and had at least 7... More

My husband, daughter & I stayed at the Royal Cardinal for 3 nights. First, the good. The location is perfect, especially since I was extra-excited to see Notre Dame. Staff was helpful, although one desk clerk literally made us close the front door so he could try to talk us into buying a river cruise. We didn't even get a... More

2 star hotel, a bit pricey, but this is Paris in full season. Clean and quiet room. Excellent location in Cartier Latin, useful for getting back by foot from different landmarks of Paris. Mr. Fabio is a remarkable gentleman at the Reception Desk. Recommend!

We stayed for 5 nights at this hotel. I loved that fact that it had an elevator, as I was traveling with my 80 year old mom and we were on the top floor. This hotel had nice people at the reception desk and they were always there to greet you when you came in or left the hotel. Our... More

The price is a bit on the high side compared to what you get for it. Also the warm water broke and there was no airco or fan in the room despite being almost 30 degree during august. I guess you get what you pay for. I guess next time I'll pay a bit more to get a better room.

This hotel has a very good location. There is a supermarket across the street that you can buy all your daily needs. Mr. Fabio and all the front desk staff were very kind and helpful. Some of the rooms in the hotel are very small. We were lucky that after the first night they changed our room to a larger... More
