“Bon Service at Touring Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

The staff at Touring Hotel was excellent. Gilles, at the front desk, was most helpful with directions to local sites. He even created a hand drawn map to get from the hotel in the 9th arrondissement to the 2nd so I could shop at my favorite french designer's boutique, Agnes B.. Isabelle, also at front desk, helped to locate Passage Joffery, which is not far from hotel.

Location of hotel great for access to Montmartre area and Gallerie Lafayette or Opera House. Rooms okay, window faced small wall court yard …nice mural of Paris on wall
, big bathroom…..plenty of seating in two lobby areas ……breakfast …standard,

one minus….charge for use of computer / internet access ..between 2 and 4 euros for 1/2 to 1 hour.

Room Tip: walls are thin…large family celebration during our visit so typical children/parent conversations in...

This hotel was a little hard to find at first but it is in a great location. The room was a bit small but quite standard in size for Paris. The front desk staff is wonderful. They were very helpful and one gentlemen (I didn't get his name) was very instrumental in mapping out our day with all the tourist attractions I was interested in seeing. They recommended a great restaurant for dinner and there was a corner cafe that served an awesome house wine! The gent even loan me his umbrella as it was raining a bit. The hotel also stored our luggage after check-out so we could visit the city. It was a wonderful experience. I only wished we could have stayed longer as we were only there for one night.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a tub.

lovely rooms, not too cramped. Quiet street, close to Montmartre et Lafayette.

You have to count a surplus of 10€ for breakfast if you want to take it indoor, and a surplus of 8€ (+ deposit) for the safe (????) furthermore they charge 2€ per 30 minutes WIFI !!!!!!

Room Tip: In Paris you have to pay for EVERYTHING ... so if I would return to Paris and can get a room at disc...

Just got back home from a Easter weekend getaway from Paris and really enjoyed it. I stayed in Hotel Touring with my boyfriend for a long weekend. I had booked the hotel through Agoda couple of months before and never used the website before and had heard some negative feedback of the website so I double checked with the hotel that the reservation was ok.The hotel staff emailed me back quickly in French. We had a room on the highest 5th floor, room 23 which had a good size bathroom with a bathtub and a balcony so we were very pleased. The hotel was very clean and the overall impressions was good and all the different staff members spoke English very well.

The hotel is one of those typical old Paris hotels with thin walls and we could hear when the hotel staff started to vacuum cleaning the corridor early in the morning. Another negative thing was the wifi that didn't work in the room, you would have to go to the lobby pay for it 2€/30mins but there was Starbucks nearby where you could get online for free in case you needed to.

We checked the hotel 10€ breakfast the first morning and felt it was not worth of the money so ended up eating breakfast elsewhere. There are many nice breakfast cafes nearby. The hotel is just few blocks away from Cadet metro station and there are many cafes and grocery stores like Starbucks, McDonalds/McCafe, Carrefour, delicious little bagel shop and other cafes offering "petit dejeneuner".

The hotel is also walking distance to Opera/Galeries Lafayette department store and also Montmartre neighbourhood and the metro would take you to Louvre and Notre Dame and other main attractions in 15 minutes. I would book this hotel again.

Room Tip: I believe only few rooms on the highest floor have balconies. Ask for a bathtub so you get a room wi...

myself and three friends of mine stayed at Hotel Touring for 8 nights. The hotel staff there is extremely personal, friendly, and helpful.

They booked a cab for us back to the airport, they helped us with places to eat that are delicious, they helped us with directions if we were lost or felt confused by the city, and the owner and his wife were always around which showed a real committment to the hotel and its functioning.

Our room was always cleaned each day and the beds were comfortable. I think that we shouldnt have to pay for wifi, but it worked out because we just hooked on to the hotel next doors wifi and didnt need to pay for theirs!

THe breakfast was perfect and the employees in the morning can make you a delicious cup of coffee!

Overall we had a great experience and it was the perfect place to come to at night and crash at.

If you're familiar with 3 star hotels in France then this is a perfect example. The place is not large, the rooms are comfortable, the bathroom is clean, everything works and you get a pretty good nights sleep at a reasonable price for a major city.

The hotel is on a quiet street just off the Rue Lafeyette and an easy walk from the Gare du Nord (and Eurostar). Rooms are not available on the day you check in until 15:00 but they will store your luggage for you. The lift is serviceable, it held the four of us and our luggage with room to spare. There is a nice staircase for when you don't have luggage, it's only dark if you don't switch the light on! We were on the 3rd floor at the front of the building; there was a bit of street noise but this was eliminated by shutting the window properly.

Breakfast is in a basement room, accessible from the lift. The food is standard; rolls, croissant, scrambled egg; pastries, fruit, tea/coffee/chocolate, cereal and crêpe - although they are not cooked fresh. For us this was inclusive in the room price.

We were here for 3 nights with friends and we all felt it was ideally suited to visiting many of the sites of Paris over a long weekend - we walked everywhere, from Sacre Coeur to the Musee D'Orsay. The room was big enough for us all to meet up and share a bottle of bubbly in comfort, although there is no fridge the hotel will let you use theirs. There is a safe in the room but this requires an additional - charged for - key; we didn't bother and didn't have any security issues.

OK so they don't have free WiFi! Many much bigger and more expensive hotels don't either. Personally we can do with out it; there are enough locations with free access for the price of a coffee nearby.

We'd use this hotel again.
