“Great location - proximity to Isle St Louis!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

- - Pros - -
A reasonably short walk to Isle St Louis, & some really good restaurants.

- - Cons - -
(1) Hotel entry hallway is about 10 feet wide - slightly claustrophobic.
(2) Homeless person sleeping/living a few feet away from the front door for some of the time we were there.
(3) Rooms have a distinct smell of stale air, which goes away when you open the windows.
(4) Would try to find a place on Isle St Louis before coming coming back here. But if I couldn't I would stay here.

Room Tip: We stayed on the top floor - the 5th - but we were not offered any choice of rooms. Early morning st...

Stayed there for two nights over the week-end, nice second floor with a large living room. Rooms needs new paint and paper on the walls, otherwise it was clean. If you're on the street side, windows are not great at soundproof. Price asked was much too expensive for the quality of the hotel.

Room Tip: If you must be there ask for a room in the back

We stayed here just for one night before we caught an early morning train to Milan. It was very convenient for the railway station and was in a good location for shopping and visiting the sites. On the negative side, the hotel was very basic, bedroom very dated and a little shabby, it was clean though - very small - but most bedrooms in Paris are small. It was fine for what we needed - just a bed for the night - but I wouldn't recommend it if you were staying for more than one night - and definitely not if it is your first visit to Paris - or on a romantic weekend away.

A well-placed hotel for a Parisian weekend!! The hotel is on the main Rue de Rivoli a stones throw to the north of the Ile de la Cité (home of Notre Dame) and about 15-20 mins walk from the Louvre in one direction and the Place de la Bastille in the other. The hotel rooms themselves (our one anyway) are on the small side and the bathroom not much better. But, it was clean, and the staff very helpful, friendly, and the beds large & comfortable. We paid extra for breakfast - it seemed a touch expensive at first glance, but when compared to outside prices, it was in fact good value for money. And it had a lift which was big enough for two or three people, or the cases - but not both!!!!

You can get a better room at the hostel walls are thin so you hear the screaming kids up and down the hall. Like the others have said the hotel has not been updated since it was built. Hotel staff is friendly and helpful but do not use them to book any excursions with France tourism or use that organization. The hotel will push booking multiple trips including meal do not get sucked in. Example I just took a trip to st Michael another one will be the chateaux de la Loire. The trip to saint Michael was 14 hours all together approximately 2 hours at site I made the mistake of doing the meal which took an hour by itself. The food was the worst I have ever had, durian is better. When I returned a girl took the train for less money and had more time at site with less travel.

Stayed August 2013

The only reason for staying here is to appreciate how good other hotels are. In a great location but old and tired. Wifi advertised but did not work. Photos on their website bear no relation to what you get. Ok if all you want is a basic room for a night.
