“Nice hotel, great service, well appointed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014 via mobile

My wife and I stayed here for one night...had a room looking out on the Small park. Check in was great, very efficient, Erik was very helpful in getting us set up....room is small but they have used space well and it felt roomy enough.

The hotel is on a busier street with B level shops but is a quick 5 minute walk into nicer shops/restaurants...in addition it is maybe 250 meters from Metro 4 stop Reamur Sebastopol which allows easy connections to all the popular spots in town and the airport.

We ate breakfast it was a very good selection and service was good...

Used the "gym" which consists of a rowing machine, a spinning cycle, a bench with dumbells and a machine that replicates skiing or skating...it is in basement in a little bit of an ackward space but you can work off some of the foie gras....

Overall really liked the hotel and the service areas that they control were all top notch....the only caveat I would give is the location is just a touch outside of the "action"

We have just enjoyed a 2-night stay at Le 123 Sebastopol. A quirky hotel with a French Film theme throughout. Conveniently located within a few minutes walk from Réaumur Sébastopol Metro station.
Arrived early (11.30am) so requested to leave our bags to enable us to go exploring and were pleasantly surprised to be told our room was ready and we were able to check-in.
The complimentary extras make all the difference... Free Wi-Fi, soft drinks in the room minibar, afternoon buffet served in the lobby including treats like macaroons and pastries.
We stayed in room 522. Large, very comfortable bed. Impressive bathroom with double shower. Very clean throughout. Only criticism is lack of space to store clothes, a small rail with only 4 hangers and one shelf.
Wonderful customer service was experienced throughout our stay.
In my opinion the room rates are a little high, but the overall experience was a positive one.

I was lucky to stay at this beautiful hotel in January 2014 for my 21st birthday. In the middle of a backpacking trip, this hotel was beyond a dream. It isn't supposed to be a luxury hotel apparently, but the beautiful interior, sweet rooms and the breakfast defiantly made us feel we were living in luxury. The location was superb for all paris activities My favourite part of this hotel however was the staff. From the receptionists to the night manager and the lovely bell boy. Every staff member we encountered was a credit to their hotel. Also, the manager was especially kind making my birthday very special. Being a tattooed 20 year old it is easy to feel brushed over in comparison to say a business client but everyone made us not only feel welcome but special. We will most certainly be returning again hopefully very soon! Cheers.

Stayed here for two nights in mid January 2013.

As the title says, don't be under any illusion that this is 'the best hotel in Paris', because at EUR250 a night it's never going to be. However, if you don't want to spend more than EUR250 a night I expect it's every bit as good as you will find elsewhere.

The hotel is very clean, immaculately presented. The reception staff speak flawless English and are very helpful. There is free Wifi, one log-in per device. The rooms are not large but they are more than sufficient - hanging space for clothes, minibar with free soft drinks (replenished daily), good shower, comfortable bed, very quiet (our room was at the back of the hotel). The downstairs bar has free soft drinks and snacks all day. Alcohol is neither included or cheap - EUR15 for a (admittedly generous) Vodka and tonic. There is an off licence 10 minutes walk up Sebastopol and turn right down Blvd St Denis, also a Hippopotamus (Burger/Steak chain) on that same road, 10 mins away.

We thought it was well placed, being about 20-30 minutes walk from Gare du Nord (Eurostar), 20 mins from the Louvre, 20-30 mins Notre Dame. At Notre Dame you can pick up the red bus tour which takes you to everywhere you'd want to go, EUR25 per person.

There are plenty of cafes serving a huge range of food, breakfast through dinner, if you take a right out of the hotel, right again and then first left, 5-10 minutes walk. That street takes you through about thirty bars and restaurants, Irish bar, McDonalds, Starbucks etc and right down to the Seine. Turn right and you're headed to the Louvre. Alternatively, walk 20 mins down Rue Reaumur and you'll come to the main shopping area with another huge selection of (pricey) restaurants.

I think the acid test for any hotel is "would you stay again?", and my answer would be "yes".

We were delighted with our stay at 123 Sebastopol. The rooms have big very comfortable beds, themed to reflect the French cinema industry. Everything feels very new and fresh. A special mention should go to the staff who are incredibly cheerful,welcoming and helpful. Breakfast had plenty of variety and was served by excellent staff. We would unreservedly return to this hotel for another weekend break - it was a pleasant 10-15 minute walk from the hotel to the Louvre museum, so quite central.

I stayed at the Le 123 Sebastopol late last year and loved it! The theme was a bit lost on me as I know nothing about French films.. it would have been better if they added a bit more of a international theme. I stayed in a room with a punch bag (no idea why) and had a balcony but the weather was wet and cold so its a shame I could not make use of it. The bed was comfy and the shower was good but the one negative - there was not enough space to hang clothes so if you are staying for more than 1 or 2 nights and there are to of you then this is an issue.
Location is excellent.. close to a metro and also walking distance to the Marais. Service was relaxed and very good and breakfast was excellent. One added bonus..they offer free soft drinks and snacks throughout the day which gives a bit more of a warmer welcome. Not perfect but for a new hotel in a city full of hotel choices it certainly is standing out!

I stayed at Le Sebastopol a few nights on my way home after the vacation in Martinique and I got very good impression of the hotel. The hotel offers you nice rooms and an open bar. There is even a nice and helpfull stuff. During all hours of the day they are there for you, giving you a good personal service with that little extra.
I'll definitly like to stay at Le Sebastopol few times.
