A great location, price, comfortable bed, modern design and great shower are the advantages of le malown. Downside is the very small room and heavy perfume smell. We did have a problem with the room keys the first day and a fire alarm in the middle of the night on the second, however, this is likely isolated incidents. I would... More

We are currently staying here and have been travelling around Europe for the last month. We also have done previous world trips and have not experienced anything like this...Staff are the rudest we have encountered...but maybe that is because they are French!!! Size of room..you cannot swing a cat! The room is ridiculous...in size for value..should not pay anymore than... More

Very very small - even by Paris standards. No bar or social interaction. Service was reasonable - but you could get a much better hotel for the same price in similarly convenient areas. Rooms are noisy with limiited amenities. Laundry was done properly and quickly. Most Paris hotels are very small but this was ridiculous. I've had better breakfast experiences... More

After previous terrible experiences trying to find a good cheap hotel in Paris I was very pleased with this one. Good location, friendly staff, tidy, clean, fair breakfast. My shower curtain was horribly mouldy, and the wifi gaspingly expensive at 20e for 24 hours, but both forgiveable when the rest of my stay was so pleasant and on a very... More

Stayed here in Sept, great staff very friendly and super helpful. I didn't mind the tiny lift or rustic look at all, what upset me was the shower curtain (it seems trivial I know!) it was full of mould and I felt physically sick when trying to have a shower. I even asked for a replacement new curtain the next... More

The rooms are creepy, escalator is creepy,staf is useless, don't feel safe.I have travelled a lot in Europe, this is my worst experience. I hope you listen to me. I... More

This is a small hotel, with small rooms, and a small elevator- typical of Parisian hotels. If this is your first time in Paris, you may be expecting more- but this is a hotel is full of Parisian charm. It is clean, with a well-mannered and courteous staff ( more French, than Parisian :-) ). It is very near to... More

I stayed here for 3 nights in March 2012. Having stayed in numerous hotels in Paris I thought I knew what to expect regarding room quality/size vs price. I arrived at 8am after a flight from Australia and paid for the previous night so we had guaranteed access to our room. It seems as we were last to arrive they... More
