I stayed here with my Mum, Dad and 3 daughters. It's a budget hotel in Paris so I wasn't expecting 5 star but even I was disappointed. I stayed in a connecting room with my girls and found it impossible to lock the internal door, which meant as my Dad was the only one able to do it, we all... More

We stayed in the hotel for two nights and we felt very welcome. Stuff is polite and the location is good for exploring the city either on foot or taking the metro. A metro station is just a few minutes walk from the hotel, but I prefer walking. Also, near the hotel there is a shop where you can buy... More

Went to Paris for a footballmatch, stayed at the Cactus Hotel. Hotel is good for a couple of nights. Don't expect too much, you get what you pay for. Breakfast is very french, no fresh fruit or fresh juice, just buns and croissants. Locations is quiet, no noise from the streets. Will only recommend this for a short stay.

We stayed at Cactus with the family (adults + 3 children) during our 3 days trip to Paris. Hotel has good location (practically walking direction from Notre Dame) and good transportation options around. Hotel service was good, breakfast is reasonable - fresh croissants with jam was absolute kids favorite particularly considering us being in France.

I stayed here in 2010. No one helped me with my suitcase. I asked about coffee in the morning and was assured that I could get a cup but when morning came, the kitchen was locked and no one was available. The front office was locked so there was no place to sit in the lobby in the evening. The... More

My family of 4 stayed in this hotel for a week late June 2013 only because they charge entire sum upon check-in, and hotel's wi-fi didn't work due to lack of bandwidth for me to even try to find another hotel. This hotel building is dilapidated, literally 4th rated welfare fleabag. Thin walls, smelly bathroom with broken fixture, bedsheets that... More

Typical big city/small hotel. Staff was very friendly, breakfast of croissants, coffee, and juice. We had room 25, 3rd floor walkup, 2 opening windows with good blinds, view of street,... More

We stayed at this hotel in July 2012 as a family. This price was right for a 2-room suite that slept 5 people in Paris. It is convieniently located near Gare Montparnasse and about a 25 min. walk to the Eiffel Tower. It's also very close to many different restaurants and very quick walk to subway station. The price included... More

We found out there were bed buggs the last night and it was a horrible ending to a great trip in Paris-
