“Good location & good value for Paris”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013 via mobile

The rooms are basic but clean - good enough for a short stay. Hotel is close to République metro & there's a supermarket nearby. Breakfast is nothing special so consider eating out - there are plenty of cafés nearby. Staff were friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our stay here.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

This stay was entirely unplanned. My wife, child and I had already spent a week in Paris at a flat and were affected by the striking Union employees and a cancelled flight later were left to fend for ourselves. With all of the hotels around the airport fully booked I was back to looking within Paris last minute.

Here is where Paris France Hotel came in. I found a decent rate in what I knew was a good part of town and close enough to the Metro and locations to get there, get food and anything else we needed until our flight (so we were hoping) the next day. I booked it online and off we went...back into Paris again for an unplanned evening which we were hoping to relax.

Upon arrival to the hotel I was informed that there were 3 of us (2 adults and a 5 year old) and I had only marked it as 2 and they didn't have rooms. Apparently in my haste after 6 hours at the airport I missed the child check mark after doing too many searches. Completely my fault, but I wasn't thrilled at not having a room and the prospect of searching again while we were all exhausted and just wanting a shower and to rest. The Front Desk agent did some checking and was able to find a triple room at the going rate of a triple. Given how the day had been going, I gladly paid and we were on our way.

So about the Hotel:
Pros:
* Right by the Metro Temple - Convenient
* Rooms are really clean
* Beds are comfortable and soft
* Bathrooms are small but clean with large tub and shower and hot water
* Rooms looked recently updated
* Nice view down the street
* Quiet when the windows are closed
* Front Desk staff is always warm and friendly
* Convenient location if you are looking for food or to go to sites like the Louvre

Cons:
* Elevator - please note, I only put this in the cons for people who travel with large suitcases. We only had a carry on and backpack so it wasn't a problem, but it is small. When you go to Europe, it's always good idea to pack light. It worked just fine and I have no complaints about it.
* Metro - When your coming from the airport you will have to make at least 2 additional connections via Metro with a lot of stairs and walking (refer back to the packing light). We discovered that theMetro location we were planning to change trains was closed to transfers for Metro Line 3, so we got to change an additional time on the trip there.

Overall, its a great hotel to stay at and a reasonable price which is hard to find in Paris. It's easy to forget that its a 3 star hotel and not rated higher once you get there. If your looking for all of the 5 star amenities, keep looking and prepare to pay 3-4 times the amount, if your looking for a comfortable place to sleep and get refreshed while your in Paris, this is a gem.

Enjoy! And thank you again for making the best out of our unexpected stay!

Lovely hotel. Fabulous staff. Room was a great size if basic. But clean, good temperature. TV, free wifi. Bathroom small but clean. Shower was great. Quiet, we slept well. Didn't try breakfast so can't comment. Great location, easy to walk down into centre etc. 2 women travelling together- area felt safe and no homophobia. Loved it.

Paris hotels are quite expensive. When you don't want to spent too much, you will often find shabby hotels, with dirty rooms that are really too small. So, we were very happy to find (via tripadvisor) Paris France Hotel. We had a triple room with enough space, everything was clean and we had no complaints whatsoever. Next time in Paris we will come to Paris France Hotel, which, by the way has an excellent location for bus and metro.

This hotel was a great find! It was close enough to all the major Paris attractions that we were able to walk to everything! If we got tired we could also take the Metro since it was very close to the large Republique stop.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was spotless and the white bed linens were fantastic! Plenty of hot water for shower. There was a nice breakfast in the am of bread, croissant and coffees that was a great value. I wanted a larger room, specifically the "red room" that I read about but it was booked. The only room available was a room with two twin beds but we pushed them together. I would definitely recommend this hotel and would stay here again on another visit.

Excellent location and service. There are also a great number of restaurants nearby and it is an area which is less touristy so was great when coming back after a long day spent in tourist filled areas. Wifi in your room is excellent and the staff are very good to deal with.

The only thing I found odd was that you have to hand over the key to your room every time you left the hotel - this might cause some people security concern.

If you are looking to experience Paris on a budget this is the perfect accommodation. Rooms are clean, and the service friendly and helpful. You can't beat the location and price. Our view was amazing, plenty of charming restaurants nearby in the Maraia District but walking distance to Notre Dame and the Seine.
