“Perfect location, pricey, tiny rooms with few amenities”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2011

We travel to Paris a lot--usually a few months out of each year. Normally we stay in an apartment less than a block from this hotel, as it is the ideal location. You are just a block from the Louvre, Tuileries, Blvd Opera, and it is descretely nestled in the wonderfully non-touristy Marche St. Honore. One year, however, the apartment was not available for a second impromptu trip we made to Paris, and we resolutely wanted to stay in the same convenient and safe area. This hotel seemed the ideal solution. I was astonished at how much such a relatively hidden and tiny hotel charged per night, and how, even by Paris standards, small the rooms were. Ours really could hardly accommodate us and our small amount of luggage; and one of us would have to sit on the bed if the other wanted to get by. We went to Monoprix to buy more pillows, as the one offered was not enough, and they could not produce more. I believe there are less expensive choices for well-located hotels, with, if not larger rooms, better appointed and laid out. I will investigate others in the area (not right on St Honore or Place Vendome, as those are always price-inflated), but close by.

We were there for 3 days.the rooms were small and we had to change a room as the air conditioner was not working.Rest bathrooms were clean and the water supply was good.The hotel was located near tourist bus depots from where we could take the tours.there was no view from the room we had chosen but there was a good breakfast included in the hotel stay.

Room Tip: check the ac etc. in working condition before checking in

We got a good price on the room with breakfast included so the hotel was a great deal, especially for the location. It is not a fancy hotel but that would cost a fortune in this neighbourhood. The rooms are very small but that is to be expected. No one should come to Europe and expect to have large rooms! We had breakfast included which was nice but I don't know if I'd pay for it on its own. It had breads and pastries, meats, cheeses, hard boiled eggs, cereal, and coffee and juice. There is a small, 2 person elevator but we manly used the stairs. Inside the hotel is surprisingly quiet. I never heard any noise from any other rooms. There is also a computer but to access the internet you need to buy a card from the front desk. Just around the block, behind the hotel are lots of restaurants, a grocery store, and a laundry mat. Just a couple minute walk is the tube station and the Tuileries Gardens. In July when I was there, there was a small fair in the garden with rides and stands that you would find at an amusement park. Overall, it is a nice quaint hotel that I would recommend.

This hotel is in a really good location. The first room we were given was extremely small on the top floor, with a broken air conditioner and temperatures were soaring! We were upgraded to a better room on the second night of our 5 day stay which was larger and much better appointed, however from time to time it smelt of (we think) cat pee. Whilst the shower was hot, it was impossible to stop the water flooding all over the bathroom floor through a leaking shower screen. The breakfasts were good - bread and pastries cooked daily on the premises plus a good range of choices. On the morning of our departure, the concierge found it impossible to order a taxi between 8 - 9 am so we should definitely have ordered it the night before - we couldn't even get a taxi at any taxi ranks, so we had to use the metro.

In summary: basic rooms, great location, unco-operative staff.

The most compelling feature of this hotel is its excellent location -2 minute walk to the Tuileries, 3 minutes to the Metro, 5 minutes to the Louvre.

Rooms are basic, and like the rest of small Paris hotels, the rooms are small. Air conditioning struggled to keep the room cool. No restaurant but there is a buffet breakfast in a basement breakfast room. Breakfast is expensive and basic: 15Eur/person for toast, bread, croissants, juice, coffee, tea, cereal.

We had an issue at check-in. Our travel agent booked the rooms through a UK company called Hotel Connect (HC). Unknown to us, Hotel Connect had not paid this hotel for several weeks.

When we arrived following a 16 hour trip of, connecting flights, airport waiting, a transatlantic overnight flight and a 90 minute taxi ride in from CDG airport in awful traffic; we were told that there was a problem with our reservation. The hotel manager called HC and loudly expressed her anger at not being paid for several weeks and told them she would not honour the reservation until they paid. They agreed to call her back in a few minutes.

We were asked us to wait in the lobby where my wife could lie down on the only sofa to rest. After an hour, they told me we had no room and they would try to get me a room at another hotel! Up until that point I was led to believe it was only a mixup with payment. After I angrily told them this was not acceptable, they agreed to give me a room.

I sent an e-mail to my travel agent in Canada but the office was not open yet because of the time difference. A couple of hours later, HC filed ceased trading and informed travel agents and hotels it would be liquidated. Big problem!

My travel agent worked for 4 days with this hotel to attempt to have them honour the original rate that they would have received from HC (approx 525Eur for 4 nights including breakfast) if it was paid directly by me or by the travel agent. This approach worked with another hotel in Nice that we stayed at and also with other hotels in Europe that our travel agent had booked for other people.

For 4 days, right up until I checked out, the hotel staff gave the runaround to me and the travel agent about the rate, insisting that I pay the 200Eur/night rack-rate plus breakfast - a total of 920Eur, almost 400Eur more than the amount they would have received from HC.

Finally, at checkout, they agreed to drop the price to 608Eur for 4 nights including breakfasts.

In the end, it was an equitable settlement but their obstinance was a distraction for our 4 days in Paris. I will now have to challenge the original payment I made through the credit card company.

Perfect location in the middle of the city. The building is very old. Rooms very very small. Toilet laughable. Bed is good, room and bathroom are clean. This hotel needs to seriously renovate or drop its prices. Breakfast room 3 tables. Quality of the breakfast was good though.

This hotel really couldn't be better placed in terms of location, but the hotel really could have been better. Rooms were just wierd. Bathrooms very out dated and a bit grotty around the edges. Bed was quite comfy but bed linen didn't seem to fit. The most depressing thing was the outlook of the room we were in - the back of some ugly buildings with the smell of cooking fat wafting around. Breakfast was ok and the downstairs was quite charming, but the rooms were small, unattractive and very outdated. This was not a hidden gem, in fact I wish we had forked out some more cash - you get what you pay for here.
