The only positive points about this hotel are its location and willingness of staff to help. Situated in Rue Malar, its in close proximity to business district, Eiffel tower etc. Right from the reception, everything is of micro size. Its impossible to make any movement without being touched by something or other. I guess there are three or four floors.... More

I chose the hotel for the locaiton, which I highly recommend for ease of bus, metro and walking routes in Paris. However, I am paying $180 per night for two of us. At first I thought "how cute" - the room is small, as expected. But then...where to start. The curtains don't close allowing a direct view from the neighbors... More

Small hotel in an upmarket area. Name is not clearly visible from the street. Close to public transport, Seine, bateaux mouche, Eiffel Tower, les invalides to name a few. Very friendly staff, no issues to communicate in English, breakfast had limited choice, but all you can eat. Rooms small, no place to swing a cat but has what you need,... More

This hotel is located about 2 blocks from the Eiffel Tower and Metro station. The area is very quiet after dark, and I felt one of the safest neighborhoods. The hotel itself, was average. The decor was a little out-dated. The rooms were comfortable. There are no elevators. The staff was friendly and spoke English. It's a great hotel if... More

Continuing my tour of hotels in the 7th I ended up at Malar this trip. I would be unlikely to return but that says more about me than the hotel. It was okay - just a little tired, small and rundown. The common area has obviously had a splash of paint but the rooms are very basic - a double... More

Terrific location. Reasonable rates. This is a perfect, low budget (for Paris) place to stay. Pleasant staff. Comfortable accommodations. The size of the room was quite average for Paris. The biggest problem is that they have no elevator, so if you are on the 3rd floor its a challenge with heavy bags.

The hotel malar is a complete rip off and I would advise anyone against staying here. Not only are the rooms tiny and boiling hot, the shower (if you could call it that) did not have hot water our entire trip. We came back to the room midday to find the "manager" going through our belongings. I don't know what... More

The location was perfect. To the Eiffel Tower it was like 10 min walking distance, 20 min for Louvre and 15 min for Arc de Triomphe. You can use the metro or the bus if you don't like to walk. The breakfast was average. As option you can do your breakfast at bakeries near by the hotel. The staff is... More

In 2004 of March, I went to Paris over spring break for a seminar that was taking place with my university. We stayed here, and yes the rooms were tiny compared to our standards, but worth the location. We were busy constantly with the seminar but it enabled us to see the city like never before. We were able to... More

I have heard many bad things about hotels in Paris: how they are tiny and bad and not at all what you would call a 'nice stay'. But my friend and I needed an average hotel for our three-night visit, and Hotel Malar was simply perfect! Some important notes, though: we had a room on the fourth floor, which meant... More
