The room was okay - we were there for the architecture, not for a posh experience - but it would have been better if the toilet was not shared and the walls were not quite so thin. I'm not sure that's something they can change and it didn't ruin the overall experience. A few strange incidents: one, booking a taxi.... More

HI Dear I made crazy efforts to negociate you a good price for your taxi and you thank me like that!! I just wanted to make you save some sleep because I knew very well that 5.15 am was enough to to go to the airport. But ok next time I will not take care of the comfort of my... More

Let's be clear this is a very special place, and it cannot be compared to a chain hotel. This is one of the great buildings of the world, and those who suggest it needs an update are simply ignorant of the architectural heritage of France. We found it awesome as a building and loved the space, colour and atmosphere. Our... More

The people at Hotel Corbusier refused to accept me at 01:00 AM, despite a confirmation by telephone of my arrival, saying that my credit card had not been processed after I gave it over the telephone. I arrived late given a strike in the French railway company, which the Hotel was aware of. I was only allowed to speak to... More

Dear sir, I am the "very bad lady" who dared to refuse you a room... In the hotels all over the world, rooms are not kept after a certain hour when there is no guarantee. There was NO GUARANTEE on your booking and our hotel is not obliged to be opened all the night. You had call my husband to... More

The building itself is fantastic so it was exciting to stay in the hotel. Very friendly staff. We had booked the cheapest double but it looked a bit too mean for two of us (fine if you're on your own) so we upgraded to a studio, which had a double bed and a single. Beautifully done out in keeping with... More

Four of us (two architect couples) stayed in one of the duplex units for two nights. It gave us full access to the building's rooftop complex. Truly inspiring to experience a living building - families gathering for sunset, shopping, going about daily life. We spent our entire day in the building - never left!

There you can understand the Modulor and why Le Corbusier was ahead of the game on sustainable architecture. The hotel provide a clean environment, great breakfast, in a simple decor imagined by Le Corbusier's great designer (Charlotte Perriand) and furniture maker (Jean Prouve). Great places to vist and stay in. I have brought small groups there and will be back... More

I've always wished to visit the Unite d'Habitation by Le Corbusier and I was delighted to get the opportunity to stay in the Hotel. The building was mesmerizing and totally unique. It needs to be experienced to be understood. I expected a great deal from it and it delivered. One aspect that made this stay doubly special was the Hotel... More

I'm quite surprised to read the response from the management of Le Corbusier on Mr Chaumeix review and it is moreover to be accused of bad or inappropriate behaviour such as clogging toilets. I was part of this group of decent business people and as far as I can say, the toilet in my room F11 was already slowly flushing... More

Our stay at the hotel was an amazing experience. I have never met such an enthusiastic host, willing to let us stay in her own apartment and impart her insightful knowledge of the building. It was great to get a feel for the design of this building by having first hand experience of living in it, this helped immensely in... More

I visited the hotel with a few of my friends. On arrival we were taken to our rooms. Staff were very helpful in assisting us with our various queries. Our studio rooms were large, clean with beautiful, views. Just to note, if you do book a room, make sure you email and ask what services you can or cant use... More
