Very close to a underground train station so transport to and from the airport is easy. They also offer a cheap shuttle service if you wish but you have to order 24 hrs in advance. Very close to a city bike station which me and my boyfriend thought was genius! We went every where on bikes! We thought it was... More

Right behind the Louvre and yet you aren't staying in a crowded touristy area at all so you get a lot of the local charm. Our room was on the 2nd floor. We knew we wouldn't be spending much time in the room and we were on a budget, so this place was perfect for us. The room is small... More

For those who want a well situated, budget priced, comfortable place to stay in Paris, this is it. My sense of self worth is not tied to opulence and I prefer things sufficient, convenient and reasonable. This is that place: Louvre a block away, the old Opera house-5 blocks, super market- three blocks, ethnic restaurants, dozens within walking distance. Walk... More

This hotel was recommended by a family friend who frequents Paris and stays here every time. I couldn't be more grateful! This hotel is tucked away on a side street in Paris, but it is beautiful and interesting, and it is a perfect location, right behind the Louvre. The room was very small, as expected in Paris, and it is... More

Stayed here for two nights in july. Was very surprised that it was so close to the Louvre yet so inexpensive. It rained the whole time we were there so we didn't need air con, but could imagine it being very stuffy in the heat. We were on the 5th floor in a small, very clean double room with no... More

This is rated as a two star hotel and is very reasonably priced for central Paris - and it really is in a fantastic location right next to the Louvre and in easy walking distance to many attractions and to 2 metro stations and the Seine. We had a quadruple room near the top of the building which made getting... More

This is a terrific, central and affordable family run, boutique hotel for a week at least! Located about 5 minutes walk from the Louvre and walking distance to most things except the Eiffel Tower, Monmatre and Versailles; that's where the 2 handy metro stations come in! Antique, but effective one person lift adds to its charm. Our room was aesthetically... More

We were welcomed at the hotel and promptly shown our room. I had booked the family room for 2 adults and 2 kids and the room was surprisingly spacious with a double bed and 2 single beds and still leaving room to move around and store 4 suitcases. The bathroom is a decent size with both a bath and shower.... More
