“Lived up to high expectations!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

I spent three nights at le Citizen at the beginning of October in a standard "City Room" on the sixth floor. As so many others have pointed out, the views of the canal are great, the beds are extremely comfortable, the breakfasts both healthy and filling, and the front desk consistently positive and helpful (merci Laure, tu étais si charmante et patiente avec moi). I travelled solo this time but if I go back as a couple, I think I would spring for the larger Zen or City K or L suites. The standard room was quite snug. I didn't find noise to be an issue between 11 pm and 7 am but the street is busy at other times. Lots of good restaurants and bistros oin the area which mercifully seemed to have more Parisiens than tourists as clients. All in all, highly recommended.

Room Tip: My sixth (top) floor City Room had a great view and may have been a little quieter since it was furt...

I stayed at this brilliant hotel on my first ever visit to Paris. The moment I set my first foot in the front door I was greeted with such warmth, care and professional hospitality it was as if I were staying with friends. The rooms are so comfortable, the breakfasts so delicious and the staff soooo helpful I would recommend Le Citizen to anyone! As a solo traveller the interactions you experience with hotel staff and other guests are very much a part of your overall experience of places you visit, and here it was as if we were one big extended family sharing our stories over an evening glass of complimentary wine and then continuing the conversation over the next day's complimentary breakfast. Add in the free use of the landline phone in your room to call home and I would suggest that this hotel was close to perfect. Thank you Laure, John, Patrick and Macky - my seven days with you all was wonderful. I hope to do it all again sometime in the future...

Had a fantastic few days there now. Yes it may not be right in the centre of town but its not far away and you really get to experience a bit of where the locals are... Its a very trendy area. Great little shops and restaurants all around too and the staff are all fantastic, so friendly and helpful.

We stayed at this wonderful, small boutique hotel for five nights in October. We agree with the accolades in previous reviews.
The staff is welcoming, caring and helpful from the moment of arrival. The feeling is more like staying with friends than being in a hotel. Attention to detail is what really sets Le Citizen apart from other hotels in Paris. You will notice this with the stylish and fresh complimentary breakfasts and late afternoon/early evening wine and hors d’oeuvres to the goodies left in your room daily. John, Laure and everyone there are top shelf. You won’t regret your decision to choose this hotel. Lou & Michele.

My husband and I just returned from a 6 night stay at Le Citizen Hotel. From the moment we arrived to the time we checked out staff could not be more friendly and helpful. The service was excellent. This boutique hotel with small but very cozy rooms, very comfortable beds and amazing rain shower. The location is perfect, great breakfast. We absolutely loved this place. It's 100% true what has been written on trip adviser.

Stayed at this Hotel in September 12 with mother who is 82 years old. After a very long trip from Aus, we arrived at 2200hrs and were welcomed like old friends by the night receptionist. Our room was all that could be wanted, two very comfortable beds, clean and functional bathroom and a great modern decor. The breakfast (included in the room rate) is one of the best "continental" offerings I have found - did I mention the freshly squeezed orange juice and pastry still warm from the bakery? Every one of the staff, reception, housekeeping, breakfast room went out of their way to make our stay our best experience in Paris, ever. Once again, the Tripadvisor reviews came up trumps!

Room Tip: City K rooms are spacious and good value

It is a nice small modern boutique hotel, The standard room are small (a typical Paris standard) we got a K suite, the price are slightly high side. The room is clean. Our room is facing the Canal Saint Martin. It a kind of getaway from the super tourist attraction and a touch of Parisan experience.

Breakfast and min bar in our room are included.
For breakfast we request for eggs to be make the style we wanted with a decent selection of food. The morning staff always help us make drinks, orange juice and our coffee!

The Staff are super friendly and helpful! Always greet with a warm smile.
I will sure come back for this hotel!
