Well located in the centre of Paris. Good eating joints nearby. Shopping arcades and area all close by.The rooms are comfortable.The staff is eager to provide tips of tourist attraction. The breakfast served is rather late if one has early departure

2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2014

I have been there last year due to a duty-travel and I have to say that I have never been in such a bad hotel during buisness travels.
The receptionist was unfriendly already during check-in procedure because we did not speak French.
Inside the room you could hear everything from other rooms or corridor, specially the noise from opening and closing doors, the doors were very noisy due to insufficient lubrication.
The breakfast was a joke, no choice, less than at home in the fridge. No standard for hotel-breakfast.
And directly in front of the door, just a few meters away there was the street with a lot of traffic and noise. If you don't take care you will be killed by a car after passing the entrance door to leave the hotel.
At least the price is not a "low-cost" category, but even in a cheaper hotel you find better conditions than those. I would not like to stay there again, and I would not suggest it to others!

My wife and I spent a couple of nights in the Alliance Hotel Paris Place d'Italie….
The hotel was under renovation and corridors were not finalized. However, the newly renovated room was a pleasant surprise. We loved it.
It is a good location, very close to the subway.
There are plenty of nearby cafes and a boulangerie.
Eliete at the reception was very nice and helpful, as well as the other staff.
Morning buffet breakfast was fair with a good variety of items.
As an alternative to get to the airport by subway, the hotel can make arrangements for a shuttle for an excellent price.

Room Tip: Ask for the renovated ones

This hotel is currently under renovations. This meant that the flooring in the corridors were basic concrete but the rooms "new".
Only things missing were a small fridge and kettle.
Wireless internet was great.
Close to the rail line and can walk to most attractions in Paris if you have reasonable fitness.

Loved the closeness to the metro and the breakfast was perfect. The rooms are small, but it's Paris -- they are all small. Staff was great, and there are a few local restaurants -- locals go there -- that we REALLY enjoyed.

We booked this hotel under it's other name of Holiday Inn express. Great price and although it is a long distance from the centre it offers great walks both to and from the river seine, Eiffel Tower and other points of interest. It has got lovely rooms and serves up a great continental breakfast. Plenty to choose from!
Very close to the underground and a short distance from the RER station at Denfert Rochereau which links to both airports, Orly and Charles De Gaulle.
There are great Parisian restaurants and bars nearby. We would definitely use it again.
