This hotel was fantastic for the price. Me & my husband stayed here for 5 nights. The metro station is very close by & so the hotel is easy to get to & we used the hotel as a base for lots of sightseeing. The hotel room was spacious, clean & comfortable. We both slept well & were impressed with... More

After booking for a 4 day stay in Paris I was a little worried the hotel (after getting a really good price) would sour our city break experience. How wrong I was. The hotel was clean, modern, and very close to some fantastic bakerys and excellent travel links. My only gripe with the hotel was our room was a little... More

We stayed for 3 nights, hotel was lovely and clean, rooms cleaned daily and clean towels. Beds were Comfortable. Spent very little time here really as out and about lots. Good location and staff were pleasant and helpful. We didn't have the hotel breakfast which I think 12€ a day is expensive... There's a supermarket just a couple of doors... More

We stayed here four nights and found it to be a good area. Convenient with a metro stop a 30 second walk away. Room was small but there was a full size shower. Front desk workers were helpful and polite. Our only complaint is that the wifi didn't work two of the nights we stayed.

From the outside, the Classics Hotel leaves much to the imagination, BUT I really enjoyed my stay here. We were welcomed with a smile and check-in took less than five minutes. Rooms are on the small side, but it's Paris and it's densely populated. If you want more room, expect to pay more or stay in the suburbs. Our room... More

The best thing you can say about this hotel is that is very close to the Metro and that prices are not as outrageous as in the majority of Paris hotels. Of course, it does not offer the amenities other places have and it totally lacks charm. Besides the rooms are tiny, and its noisy. But what I could not... More

The hotel is in a quiet neighborhood, where you can imagine ordinary Parisians live and work. But it is very close to the Metro station, and walking distance to the Cimetière du Père Lachaise, where you can see the graves of Oscar Wilde, Edith Piaf, Rossini, Proust. The Maison Landemaine avec David Devant next to it became our favorite patisserie,... More

Great budget-friendly hotel. Stayed in late September for three days. Bed was good (not great), room was a good size. Stayed in the 4th floor, room 402. We had a balcony, small, but good. Nice view of the busy traffic below. Had breakfast there once, on the morning I left to the airport and it was really, really good. Area... More

Nice budget hotel. Yes, ask for a room in the rear for more quiet. GREAT neighborhood. Close to the Metro. Great restaurants and patisseries. Reasonable parking wasn't too far away. We hopped on the Metro and saw everything we needed to see in Paris! We had a street room. It was noisy if the window was opened. We closed the... More
