“Modern Luxury Comfort in Paris 16eme”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

There is not much choice of hotel in the 16eme arrondissement of Paris so this is a welcome modern addition, in a convenient location close to the 7eme, reached by crossing the Pont de Grenelle, but in the quiet of the 16eme.
Unusual looking but "warm" on the inside and friendly/relaxed (decontracte) staff with all amenities (Spa, restaurant, bar, cafe..) with a reasonably priced (an evening meal for two at e40) and varied menu both for room service and the restaurant; the drinks list, for teas and infusions, being quite extensive. The restaurant does, however. close at 10.30pm (if I recall correctly) but there are parisian (not tourist trap) cafes, restaurants and bistros within easy walking distance.
Rooms are modern and very comfortably furnished (I stayed in a 32 sqm room) with adequate furniture for two people, a B&O CD player and radio and some CD's and literature already placed in the room.... a nice touch.
Rooms are very well sound-proofed and the street on the opposite side to the Maison Radio France building is quiet at night (rue Gros). Worth asking the porter who shows you your room to show you where the air-conditioning is and how the music system etc. works as these are not obvious!
In all, a great little find!

Room Tip: Rooms on the rue Gros side of the hotel are the quietest. If you are unfamiliar with Paris hotel roo...

We stayed in Hotel Square for 3 nights in August on a last minute trip to Paris. Due to the time of year the hotel restaurant was closed but this meant we picked up a great bargain with the cost of our stay!
The hotel is very modern and situated right on the Seine, about 20 minutes walk from the Eiffel Tower. The neighbourhood was full of little bistros and bars and we had plenty of choices for dining out.
The room met all our needs with the air conditioning a necessity in a Paris heatwave. The bath was also a welcome treat at the end of a day pounding the pavements.
Would love to stay again.

After a bad experience at what was billed as a four star hotel in Paris, but far from it, we checked into Hotel Square. Truly an excellent choice. A very modern and comfortable newwer hotel in sight of and walking distance (a beautiful walk along the Seine) of the Eiffel Tower. The staff could not have been more professional or helpful. The rooms were large and again quite modern with marble baths and flat screen televisions. As a five star hotel, it does not have some of the amenities that you might expect of a larger hotel, but it makes up for it with personal service. We used the concierge to make dinner arrangements and to arrange transportation. I would highly recommend this property and stay here again on my next trip to Paris.

Room Tip: Easy walking distance of not only the Eiffel Tower, but a very upscale shopping area.

This was a last minute booking that proved to be one of the best of our 4 week trip in Europe.

The staff are unerringly friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble and all services were delivered super fast. The front desk staff were also helpful with local knowledge, sightseeing/shopping advice and directions. We ate in the restaurant twice and both nights the food was great.

The rooms were lovely, very modern with great facilities (including WiFi and a good CD player), and though they were not large were certainly ample and well laid out.

Location was great, and we felt the rooms offered good value for money.

Booked 2 rooms for a night, excellent experience and the front desk staff and bellman went above and beyond. The rooms were quite a bit different, one only had a bath, the other may have been handicap accessible because it had a wonderful walk in shower. Good location with a taxi stand next door and a nice walk to the Eiffel tower.

Room Tip: Request a shower if you want one

This is a nice hotel.

The good: The rooms are clean, the bed is comfortable, the staff is very nice, the restaurant downstairs is pretty good although they run a skeleton staff and service is pretty slow (do try the Americana breakfast). The Wifi is free, it worked great and had an easy log-in process.

The bad: The rooms are very dark (good at night for sleeping, but not good if trying to get dressed). The rooms are oddly designed and lacked a standup shower (tubs only except in larger suites). The toilet was near front door but no sink to wash hands (you had to go to the room with the bathtub). The room lacked electrical outlets in the bathroom or in the main room. The old school key lock system was annoying. The hotel did not have a concierge and the staff tried but were not very knowledgable on what was around them. Simple questions seem to baffle them. The hotel lacked a fitness room. They will give you pass to health club that was purportedly a couple of blocks away, but I was unable to find it. The neighborhood is residential, but the hotel is situated on at the apex of a rather busy intersection. Not the greatest physical location.

Transportation is pretty accessible. There were always Plenty of cabs around, but the hotel is not close to the metro, but there is an RER rail stop is about two blocks away (but it will take some studying to navigate the RER). There is a bus stop across the street. Although you can see the effiel tower, it is a little bit of a hike to get to it. The hotel is not at all that convenient for any of the other tourist attractions, shopping or cultural sites. In general, if your goal is to see Paris, this location is not great at all.

Overall, this hotel is OK. Its comfortable if you are trying to chill out off the beaten path, but yet close enough to get to stuff by cab or bus. Its not the prettiest nor is it in the best location,but it is OK absent a better option. I would not return, but I can't say I had a bad stay either...it's definately NOT a "five star" hotel.

Staff were really nice, especially the beautiful young French girl who manned the desk on our arrival. Room was neat and clean enough. We were just there for a weekend so weren't in our room too much or the hotel but when we were it was restful. Really good value for our money although it is a walk to any of the sites from this hotel which is the only downfall especially for people who do not want to walk any distance or get taxis a lot.
