“Fantastic location and a real Parisienne Hotel with great charm”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

We were 3 friends over in Paris for 2 nights and we enjoyed our stay at the Marroniers. I shared a room which was at the top of the hotel and we had quite enough room with an extra bed at one end . The bathroom was very small and difficult to sit on the loo with the door closed and the bath was tiny -still we managed by sitting sideways and it was easier to shower than have a bath! The beds were comfortable with good linen and we overlooked the front of the hotel which was set back from the Rue Jacob so reasonably quiet for Paris. The lift was very slow but fine for two/three people with small suitcases. The staff were very helpful and friendly and we would have had breakfast in the hotel if it had been less expensive. All we wanted was a delicious croissant, some good coffee and maybe a juice but thought 15 euros too much. We went out and found just what we wanted for about 8 euros. In the Summer the little courtyard at the back would be delightful for a drink. The hotel was very good value for money and we would definitely come back again. The single room was tiny but had everything you wanted and my other friend was happy there and slept very well. All in all a very happy stay!

Room Tip: Ask for a room higher up and for as much space as possible!

Dear GertrudeLondon,

We thank you for taking time to write a comment about Hotel Des Marronniers.

Saint-Germain des Près is a wonderful area and a perfect location for a visit of Paris. The atmosphere, the "Parisian" style, restaurants, shops... Everything you need is in Saint-Germain!
However, rooms size is also "Parisian" and we totally understand your remark. Next time, do not hesitate to book a triple room to have more space, even for two.
Concerning breakfast, you can take a coffee and a croissant "à la carte". Because of the buffet, our guests are used to order a full breakfast.

It will be a pleasure to welcome you back with your friends for another stay in Paris.

Kind Regards,

The rooms are tiny, the views entrancing and the lift eccentric. The bathroom is easily missed if you are not paying attention.

The service was non-existent. No help with the baggage and no quick laundry. Why?

On the other hand the position is perfect in Rue Jacob and a great base from which to explore.

Dear Anthony B,

We thank you time for taking time to write a comment about Hotel Des Marronniers.

Saint-Germain Des Près is a very nice area, full of old Parisian buildings. And as many of others, Hotel Des Marronniers offers rooms and bathrooms of a "Parisian" size. We are sorry for the trouble it caused you.
Concerning luggage, we are just a three star hotel, however, if you need help, do not hesitate to ask the reception. The staff is always pleased to help you if possible.
We also inform you that we do propose a laundry service. You just have to leave your clothes at reception desk before 10.00am and you have it back after 8.00pm the same day.

Informations are written in the room directory, but reception desk is open 24 hours a day to answer your questions.

We would be pleased to welcome you back, maybe in a triple room with 3 single beds to have more space.

Kind Regards,

Location plus charm plus comfort, Room 63 has twin beds, ample bath, tasteful and fresh furnishings. Friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast served in courtyard is very good. Elevator is small and slow but you get used to it. If you want big and fast elevators go to a chain hotel and avoid the charm of Rue Jacob. Have stayed here before and hope to return.

Dear Pointc,

We thank you for taking time to write a comment about Hotel Des Marronniers.

All the staff was pleased to read that you enjoyed your stay with us. Weather was not too bad in September, and you were part of the lucky persons who had breakfast in the garden. What a nice moment! In Winter, breakfast can be served in the veranda, where you can admire the snowy garden... It is magical!
Yes, elevator is slow, but do not worry, the engine is new, and it works very well!

We hope to welcome you soon for another Parisian trip.

Best Regards,

Chose this from other Tripadvisor reviews, and they were right on. Great location - quiet back street but easy walk to the Louvre and Notre Dame and Musee d'Orsay. About 400 yards from nearest metro stop. Rooms are typical European size but nicely appointed and comfortable. Lovely private courtyard. Breakfast at 12 euros was very good considering that a café nearby was charging 10 euros for a cup of coffee, orange juice, and a croissant, whereas our hotel had many more items to choose from. Every employee was pleasant and most were fluent in English. Would definitely stay here again when we return to Paris.

Dear Anonymous1908,

What a pleasure to read your message about Hotel Des Marronniers.

Comments of previous guests are very helpful, and yours too!
Saint-Germain des Près is a central location, perfect for visiting the City. And after walking for hours in Paris streets, you can come back and relax in the garden...
We just wanted to inform readers that breakfast is at 15 euros (not 12 as mentioned). We propose now scrambled eggs, sausages, hot drink, juices, fruits, yogurts, bread (baguette), croissant, pastries, ...

We will be pleased to welcome you back to Hotel Des Marronniers.

Best Regards,

My wife and I have fallen in love with this hotel 25 years ago, and have returned many times ever since.The hotel has significantly upgraded its rooms and overall quality during these years: from slightly ramshackle and inexpensive to tasteful but subtly simple - so much in tune with its surroundings. A lovely base from which to explore our favourite part of Paris!

This is a fine little hotel. Located in a courtyard, set back from a quiet side street, the lack of external noise is amazing for such a marvelous, central location. True, the rooms are small and the bathroom tiny, but they are adequate for a short stay. Breakfast is good, the staff competent and friendly, and the garden charming. Very good value as well, in comparison with what you can get in central Paris.

The only negative is the noise from air conditioning and fans in adjacent rooms. If you're the sort of person who finds that a problem, then it may be am issue here. Otherwise, strongly recommended.

We (me, my wife and two young daughers) arrived tired after a day's travel to find that our email reservation had not been received by the hotel. This was totally my fault (2 'n's in "Marrionniers"...), but the receptionist could not have been nicer and more helpful. She found us a room (I think it was better than the one we had originally tried to book but she gave us it at the same price) and so, relieved, we settled in. The rooms were compact but very comfortable (and astonishingly quiet) and perfectly fine for what we needed, which was a base to explore the fantastic local area. A restaurant round the corner had been recommended and we had a lovely meal, then a short stroll to the river where we watched the sunset from the Pont des Amants. The hotel also has a lovely garden which, sadly, we didn't actually have time to go and sit in. But, if we come back to Paris, then we would definitely stay at this hotel again.

Dear MSJS80,

It was with a real pleasure that received your comment on Trip Advisor.

Mistakes can happen specially with an "n" or "r" missing at "marronniers". However, we always try to find a room for guests arriving without reservation, at Hotel Des Marronniers, or in the neighborhood. As it was low season, hotel had rooms available, and you could stay with us!
All the staff was pleased to read that you enjoyed your stay with us.
Paris is a nice city with a lot of places to see. You will need more than one stay to visit it. That is why you will have to come back and so you will be able to enjoy the garden!!

We hope to see you soon at Hotel Des Marronniers.

Kind Regards,
