The hotel was in a perfect location to see the history of Paris. I was amazed to be able to walk to the Louvre, Arc de Triumphe, and Notre Dame. Joel was a great tour guide and was able to help us find inexpensive French restaurant in the area.

Firstly, it's always a gamble to check into a hotel that is totally new to you. The decision for me to choose this hotel is mainly due to it's location. Well, it turned out to be a very good decision and Paris visit is even sweeter for first timer like me and family, The hotel is newly renovated, the guy... More

A work colleague and I stayed in two rooms for one night, having selected the hotel because of its proximity to our business meeting. Location, on a quiet street with easy access to the Rue de Rivoli one way and the Opera area the other, is excellent. Entrance to the hotel up steep stairs and the reception area caused us... More

3 adults stayed in one of the standard triple rooms for 3 nights stay in Paris. Room was clean and not too small. Sheets and towels all fresh and nice to use. Staff all spoke English and were pleasant to deal with. Hotel is in a good location for sightseeing and we all felt safe. Would stay again if visiting... More

First of all, thanks for your comment. The standard rooms where you stayed do not exist anymore. All rooms have been renovated end of 2014. You will find pictures on the official site of the hotel, where you also can book at the lowest rates. More

Central, secure, clean, soundproof, good heating/cooling. Perfect central base to explore the sights and sounds of Paris. Staff friendly and helpful. Built in the 1500s, so be prepared for stairs (no lifts), but staff happy to help you with your bags if you ask. Staff speak English to varying degrees, but all have enough to get by (as we had...

Door is not secure with only a push button lock. Comes equip with faulty lights and dripping shower. Room condition is not even worthy of a single star. Main corridor light can be off by anybody while you are climbing the narrow and steep stairs.

Most dishonest guest we ever had. It is so easy to make critics and to post biased pictures, like the one of the 'faulty light' for instance: the ecological bulbs that we had in this room need a few seconds to turn on and give their full light. The picture of the 'faulty light' was certainly taken 1 second after... More

The hotel started out promising, but went downhill over our 5 day stay. There are very narrow winding stairs to get up to the rooms. The room itself seemed good but the showers were really awkward and splashed water into the bathroom. I think security wise at night it could also feel safer. After midnight there is no one in...

I came across it purely by chance whilst browsing hotels and I will definitely be back.The location is fantastic as a base and an ideal starting point for this beautiful city, particularly if you enjoy walking as much I do!
