“4 Nights in May”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

We found the hotel to be comfortable, the breakfast was great, and the staff were what really makes it stand out - they were wonderful! Our room was looking a little worn, but the hotel itself is quite nice and clean. Location was convenient, walking distance to metro and attractions (although the walk back at night felt a little long when we were exhausted!) Visiting Paris for the first time we very much appreciated the helpful advice and directions from the staff. There is only breakfast here and no dinner restaurant, so be prepared to eat out (plenty of choices within a 10 minute walk). Free wifi was a bonus!

I found the Magellan to be a very good hotel, well-situated in a decent area about a 15 minute walk from the Arc de Triomphe. My room was pleasant, clean and nicely placed overlooking a courtyard. The hotel in general has a nice ambience. Staff are helpful and courteous in a solid, genuine kind of way. I would definitely stay here again.

We stayed for a week in June. Our room was clean and comfortable, Breakfast was very good and the staff helpful. We enjoyed the court yard. Good location within walking distance to Metro station. Nice cafe down the street, friendly staff, good food, good prices. We would stay here again and would not hesitate to recommend it to friends. Would have liked a mini fridge in room.

I stayed for a few days and had a great time. A little out of the way but an easy walk to the Arc de Triomphe or a short Metro ride to the centre. The hotel is very clean and the staff are incredibly helpful. Breakfast is typically French. I recommend the freshly squeezed orange juice. Good choice.

Very nice hotel. Only about a 10 minute walk to the Arc de Triomphe. Rooms on the small side but nice linen and clean. Pretty courtyard outside where one can sit and have breakfast or a drink. Staff very friendly and helpful. Close to the metro. Breakfast buffet very pleasant.

My husband and I stayed in the Hotel Magellan for 4 nights in May 2013. The staff was friendly although some waitresses were bossing people around when it came to choosing a table in the bar (which was mostly empty). The location is fantastic - its a few minutes away from the tube which is a very convenient way to travel in Paris.
The rooms were very clean and nicely decorated. The bed was comfortable. Breakfast was buffet style with good selection.

I stayed in two different rooms at the Hotel Magellan in June 2013 - a double room in the secondary building and a single room in the main building. Both rooms were on the smaller side by North American standards, which is not unusual for European hotels. The rooms were both otherwise clean and comfortable. I also appreciated the automated window shades which blocked out all light. The fixtures in the bathroom are a bit dated and while hairdryers are provided, they are the old style, wall-mounted style hair dryers that resemble vacuum cleaners and were not very powerful, so if this is a concern, you may want to bring your own.

I enjoyed the breakfast at the hotel, which was included with our room. Breakfast hours were also really good (I believe until 11 am on weekends and 10:30 am on weekdays). While the breakfast room was always busy, we never had to wait for table. A variety of pastries, yogurts, fruit, cold cuts and cheese were offered, but the freshly squeezed orange juice machine was especially good and adds significant value to the breakfast when you consider what the normal cost would be for a glass of juice at a cafe.

I was travelling with a friend and we were originally looking at twin rooms at other hotels, but two single rooms at Hotel Magellan ended up being around the same price as double room, if not even a little less, at similarly rated hotels, so choosing Hotel Magellan just based on price alone was an easy decision (granted the rate was an early booking, non-refundable rate).

The hotel is located in the 17eme arrondisement in a safe and quiet residential area, which is not totally central, but it is only about a 10-minute walk to the Porte Maillot Metro station, where you can get on to Line 1 which runs along the centre of Paris and is accessible to many key sites (e.g. La Defence, Arc de Triomphe, Champs Elysees, Louvre). The Arc de Triomphe is about a 15-minute walk from the hotel and the Eiffel Tower was about a 45-minute walk.

Overall, Hotel Magellan is a very nice, typical Parisian boutique hotel that provides a very good value, especially if breakfast is included in the rate and I would definitely consider staying here again.

Room Tip: There is no elevator in the secondary building of the hotel, so request a room in the main building...
