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

We stayed 3 nights in the quad room #32. The location of this hotel is fantastic, but that's where the positives end. The room is very old and in desperate need of a Reno, creaky floors, old rickety wardrobe doors which I thought were going to collapse. Shower/bath recess is full of mould. No mini bar to store drinks. But... More

Taking in account the price of this hotel, in combination with the perfect location near the Louvre, I think Montpensier is an excellent choice, when you just need a hotel to sleep quietly, start the day with a functional breakfast and explore the Louvre and environment. No cooked breakfast like in Ireland or the UK, but a lovely croissant, fresh... More

As many others have said, the location of this hotel is fantastic. But if it was anywhere else I think I would have been a bit disappointed by the slight shabbiness, particularly of the decor on the stairs and corridors. The room itself (Room 10) was comfortable with some old-fashioned character and charm and big windows, and was plenty big... More

Ok here is our review of this hotel. Firstly may I say that in the 3 years since we visited Paris the original one that we stayed in went up 40% so we didn't stay there this time. Secondly I left my booking too late and had limited choices where we could stay . Luckily we found Hotel Montpensier who... More

I chose the hotel primarily for its fabulous location and mostly favourable reviews. I had to book a quadruple room because no triple room was available for my family of three and I considered myself lucky because this hotel seemed to be fully booked every time I tried to look it up for a room. It was our home for... More
