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

Only advantage is, it is near to eiffal to walk around night time. Otherwise room is too conjusted & can hear noise of staircase or other room. Good within the reach of Metro. Service is good Good for solo stay & not for couples

This hotel is average at best. We stayed on the 3rd floor and it was a walk-up since there is no elevator. Room was tiny with no a/c. You could not open two normal sized suitcases at the same time. There was no English channel on the tv and Wi-Fi was spotty. The one redeeming feature is the staff. They... More

We stayed here on a weekend visit to Paris. The Hotel is ideally situated for easy access to Tour Eiffel and Invalides. Also there are a no: of eateries near by. The staffs were friendly and they had luggage stowage facility, though its not mentioned in the facilities column. Having said that, rest of other features in the hotel are... More
