“Nice Small Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

We just came back from a 2-night stay in a triple room in the Annex building of this hotel. It surpassed all of our expectations. The room was pretty spacious by Paris hotel standards and the bathroom, which was down a flight of steps, was gorgeous and huge. All three of us enjoyed showering in the large stall with both a rain shower head and a hand-held shower.

The room was spotlessly clean and had a comfortable bed, safe, minibar, and a coffee set-up. Very well-supplied for a fair price. We also enjoyed staying in a different part of the Marais and would definitely return.

We just returned from five days in Paris and the hotel was a great base for exploring the city. The hotel is in the Marais but only two blocks from the river and a 10 minute walk to Ile St. Louis. It is only 15 rooms but the staff was very attentive and kind. Sylvain is the Director and most helpful regarding any questions about the area. The room wasn't large but it was comfortable, and the bathroom was well lit and rather large (by Parisian small hotel standards). The room was very clean and well-maintained, the complimentary WiFi had a strong signal and adequate bandwith. We would return.

Perfect location in a quiet street with the river and hectic boulevards within short distance. Nice but fairly small room with plenty of place to store away clothes and other articles. Everything clean and delicate, large bathroom.
Friendly staff, and warm, friendly atmosphere. In short: a hotel we hope to come back to on a later occasion.

I would never stay here again:

(1) My wife was ill and needed an extra pillow to prop herself up (sinus issues) and after being told by the night staff that the extra pillows were 'locked in the basement' and couldn't be accessed until morning, the gentleman working the desk in the morning told us that we were not permitted any extra pillows, no matter our situation, as they simply didn't have any.

(2) The showers were constantly freezing in the morning, no matter how long we tried to warm them up.

(3) The walls are paper thin. We were often woken up by loud sounds from the room above, housekeeping early in the morning, or the fuses constantly being clicked back and forth, since the fusebox for the entire building was right outside our room!

You can do better, folks. Easily.

Easy to get to by public transport. Great location. Almost round the corner from the extremely busy Rue de Rivoli yet it seemed a world apart it was so quiet. The room itself was very well maintained and comfortable with a large bathroom and shower.
Le Temps des Cerises is across the street from it. It's a very popular cafe and restaurant. One morning we bought pastries from the baker's opposite, sat in the cafe ordered a coffee and that was our breakfast. A lovely taste of French life.
From the hotel we were able to walk to the Place des Vosges, with its architecture and art galleries, and enjoyed an early evening meal in the bustle of Cafe Hugo.

I stayed there for one night, but came early in the morning, and when they recognized that I drove the whole night, they speeded up the refreshing/cleaning of my room. The room itself was not that large, but excellent quality and warm atmosphere, like in the whole hotel. The bathroom with excellent shower was spacy and not the usual 2 sqm. Bed and furniture were excellent, and relatively new. Also the location is excellent, it´s just 5 min walk to the bastille and so on.
@ Staff, thanks for your warm, friendly and helpful welcome...

Perfect small hotel for your next stay in Paris: a walking-distance away from Paris-Gare de Lyon, and from many of the city's greatest monuments. Lovely quartier du Marais. Also near the metro stops. Very quiet and safe environment! Correct prices. Cute clean small rooms and big bathroom! Free wifi that actually works:-) Very helpful and friendly personnel. We didn't get to test the breakfast, but as we'll be back, we look forward to doing so.
