“A nice spot to be in the middle of everywhere!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

If you are looking to find some cheap accommodation ( a needle in a haystack in Paris!) in the centre of Paris you cannot go any better than this place.

The hotel has only two stars but they have decent rooms and bathrooms . Small wardrobes, that I will never understand of French hotels in general).

I have used this hotel for the second time and I have to say that it is great for the purpose. Situated really in the middle of the Marais ( a great fun central quarter in Paris). It is rather basic, hence some complaints before of mine, but believe me I’ve seen a lot worse in Paris , so, all in all. I would go back, in fact I did, and I would recommend it, in fact I am doing this!

Breakfast is basic too, but if you need to go out early (as I did because I was there on business for a trade show) it is best , and probably cheapest than other places around there in the area. The croissants are really buttery!

2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

We recently stayed for a second time. Ten years ago, we found the rooms drab and basic, but the location was so desirable...we forgot the hotel's shortcomings. The elevator to the 6th floor was the slowest on record; I chose to take the stairs instead most of the time. There was no WiFi as advertised. We attempted to connect in the lobby...to no avail. No hair dryer in the room. The concierge was not only not helpful but gave incorrect information. I knew that the Musee d'Orsay was closed on Monday, but the staff reassured me that it was open on Monday. So much for relying on current information. When it came to helpful public transportation information, the staff was of no assistance.
We had only a short stay this time in Paris, and much of it was wasted due to poor information or no information at all.

Having stayed at this well located hotel two years ago with a mate, I was keen to return with my family. For two people the accommodation upstairs is small but comfortable. The Marais is a fantastic base for exploring Paris. An inexpensive cab fare, metro, or 20 minute walk and you're right in the action.

For this 6 night stay our family of three was allocated a space on the ground floor unfortunately next to reception and the staff toilet, noisy and smelly. The two-roomed space was poorly configued with shabby furniture, minimal lighting and old occillating fan with death rattles, in lieu of airconditioning. As the large (broken) windows opened directly onto a well-used narrow alley we felt that our safety would be compromised if we opened them at night.

We were all disappointed with the accommodation and advise families considering this hotel to explore other options in the area.

We really like this hotel and recommend it to our friends. The renovation since our last visit is very nice. The staff is very helpful, nice shopping and eating in the area, and an easy access metro stop to get around the city. Room was clean and comfortable. This is a good hotel in Paris.

This hotel is just a short walk from the St. Paul Metro in Marais area of Paris District 3. You can also walk quite easily to the Bastille, Les Halles, and Pompidou Center. The staff was very accomodating and the rooms are not so small. Our room did not have an electrical outlet in the bathroom or a bracket to hold the shower head. Worst thing was dirty carpet. There is an American breakfast diner near, an an unending number of cafes, bistros, bakeries, etc. Marais includes the old Jewish section also. Steps away from the front door are two nice dinner cafes and a plaza with four or five more cafes.

Location, location, location....this hotel is all about location. The Marais is a charming, trendy, exciting area of Paris with few affordable hotels. The Jeanne d' Arc is affordable and perfectly located in the center of the Marais. The hotel is basic with simple stark rooms that could use some upgrades (bathroom had broken floor tiles etc). It was clean enough. We had stayed here before, so knew what to expect. This is not a luxury hotel, but it is an excellent value. The common areas are very charming. The breakfast was adequate. Much of the staff are not Parisian and are consequently limited in their knowledge of the city, but there is a computer in the library that can be used by residents. As budget travelers who love Paris and the Marais, in particular, we would not hesitate to stay here again...
