This is a great value for money hotel with helpful, eccentric staff and possibly one of the best locations in Paris. Not just in terms of its broad location on the edge of the Marais, not far from montmarte, a short walk through the marais to the left bank etc... but more importantly the local 'quartier'. Virtually no traffic noise... More

We stay at the Hotel Picard every summer and love its proximity to 'Le Marais': that sole surviving medieval quarter of Paris which you can easily walk to from this hotel. Summer in Paris is a great time to visit but it is prohibitively expensive (hotel charges are at their highest), and so staying in the fashionable Marais during this... More

My friend and I have just spent 4 nights in a twin room at Hotel Picard and thought the location was excellent, the service good and most of the staff were very helpful and cheerful. The room was good value for the price paid with comfortable beds, two delightful double windows with flower boxes over Rue de Picardie and lots... More

Do NOT under any circumstances stay at this hotel. Those who have written it's clean and "reasonable" must be mistaking this place for another. The accommodations (I use that word with tongue in cheek) are ridiculous. I understand and am ok with "bare bones" and a good price. I am NOT OK with dirty, dangerous and scary. I was afraid... More

House of Horrors Creepy, dirty, and unsafe are three words to best describe Hotel Picard. To say it is the worst hotel I've ever seen anywhere would be putting it mildly. The entire experience here has been a living nightmare. If zero stars were a choice I'd rate it negative zero. Stay away! Details: i booked this hotel during fashion... More

Staff was friendly and helpful and the price was good for Paris. Facility is very old and in need of an upgrade and rooms are tiny. The elevator is tiny and we still had to drag our suitcases down and up a few stairs to reach the room. There is a great deal of noise from nearby restaurants and bars... More

I was there for 2 days in the middle of May. Everything was really small. Firstly, it is not easy to find this hotel. The staircase and elevator are very small (width approx. for 1 person). Room is also small (except bed - it was the only normal size thing). But the size is not very important for me. However,... More

I've always heard that you should avoid staying in chain hotels when visiting Paris to get the full experience. That being said, I'm of the believe that some people are under the mistaken impression that they should expect the same room you would get from a $300 a night hotel for the $90 that the Hotel Picard charges. I enjoyed... More

The only positive things about this "hotel" is that we were able to book a room last minute. The rooms are SMALL and filthy, stains everywhere including on the curtains (how is that even possible). The towels were so old they were crunchy. The shower smelled like a urinal. The front desk agent was incredibly unfriendly and unhelpful. This place... More

This is a poorly operated hotel. Dirty carpets, cramped rooms and, with one exception, an easily confused staff-even when all the instructions were given by our Parisian friend. We were moved to three separate rooms in five days. One room, 202, was very cramped, with a poor shower and NO LIGHTS! The owner brought up table lamps and extension cords... More
