My Malaysian family and I stayed at this hotel at the end of June 2012. We booked one triple room and one double room for 4 nights. Having the knowledge that it is a 1 star hotel, we were not expecting much. We booked and paid internet prices for our rooms. Although it is a little more to pay for a one star hotel, we know that we have done the right thing because of its brilliant location. First, let me tell you about the rooms. Both rooms are good sized rooms with attached bathrooms. We have stayed at other Parisians hotel before and know that there are even smaller 3 star rooms. So we are quite happy with Hotel De La Herse room sizes. The bathrooms are tiny. As long as you know that you are staying in a 1 star hotel, you make do. The beds are clean (no bed bugs as claimed by some other reviews). The person at the front desk whose name is Syed Amir should be praised because of his dedication and professionalism, not to mention his ever helpful attitude. There is however, a strict faced elderly male staff who should loosen up a bit! Staff make up for a good part of a hotel. The Bastille Metro is just a short walk from the hotel. You can basically get everything you need from the hotel surroundings. Good cafes ,french and Chinese restaurants, plenty of shops, a tabac just 2 doors from the hotel where you can buy water and basics, etc. For my mum who is elderly, after a hard day of walking in Paris, going back to the hotel with Metro seems quite reasonable and the distance between hotel and Metro is a big blessing. I would certainly reccomend this hotel to family with small children and the elderly.
