“April in Paris”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2014

This is a great place to stay in Paris. It's ideally located - moments from the Metro but importantly within walking distance of all the major sites of Paris.

We were made to feel really welcome from the moment we arrived and although there was a slight confusion with the room booking, the problem was resolved very quickly and an alternative room offered which was wonderful (second floor). I would agree with an earlier reviewer about the beds - ours was also exceptionally hard and sleep was impaired as a result, but the shower and bathrobes and general presentation of the room were all first class.

There is the opportunity to have an afternoon tea in the main lounge area (at no extra cost) and breakfast is very good. I highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Double glazing on second floor very good. Very important if you are in a room at the front of the bu...

Great value hotel nearby major Paris attractions, just off the metro line. Rooms are comfortable and well equipped, and staff are courteous and attentive. Breakfasts are a highlight, as is the in room coffee machine. Reliable option when in Paris!

Two night stay was lovely. Room was clean and elegant. Staff were friendly and went out of their way to be helpful. The hotel has plenty of character in a fairly quiet area. About five minutes walk from the metro. Would recommend it.

For the price, this hotel is a good value. I'd probably give it 3 stars overall except the good value gets another star.

Pros
- great value
- clean
- good location
- friendly staff
- free soda/water in the room!
- nice shower with large towels

Cons
- the bed is not very comfortable (glad it's just one night here, my back couldn't take any more)
- same with the pillows
- no additional inside lock on the door (I was napping and didn't hear a knock, before I knew it in came a staff member! He was delivering cookies and a welcome letter, but still unnerving)
- no hotel information/booklet or magazines in the room

This place is so nice and a good value. They are very generous with extras and put out a wonderful breakfast, complete with smoked salmon with chive creme fraiche, scrambled eggs, a great selection of cheeses, salad, fruit salad, yogurts, cereal and so on. in the afternoon they put out snacks and beverages at no charge. In each room is a fridge with cold drinks, also complementary. The hotel is only 8 months old and the rooms are well designed and nicely appointed. They carry the movie theme throughout the hotel; each floor is dedicated to a specific movie figure. The bathroom has a beautiful, large shower with pretty tile detail and great water pressure. The staff is attentive and helpful. All in all, you can't go wrong. Metro stops are close by. Walking distance of many sites and museums.

Room Tip: Interior rooms are very quiet. We are in 516 and it's great because it is at the far end of the...

We have just returned from a 3 night break celebrating our silver wedding anniversary. This hotel proved to be a great choice. The staff were absolutely wonderful on hand to offer advice and help and we were greeted warmly by the hotel manager over breakfast on our first morning.
To celebrate our anniversary a complimentary bottle of bubbly and strawberries were placed in our room, a lovely and much appreciated touch!
Thank you for a most memorable experience

We stayed in the hotel for 1 night on a short weekend break in Paris. We arrived by Eurostar and took the metro just a few stops to Reaumur Sebastopol - the hotel is literally opposite the metro station. Note that the ticket machines for the metro only take coins and cards - if you only have notes you will have to queue for about 20 mins at the ticket counter. The decor of the hotel is fab and fun and makes you smile from the moment you enter the very heavy front door. The reception staff were really helpful, taking us up to our room and explaining everything inside. The rooms are not huge but they are comfortable, really clean and the decor is amazing - designed fabulously even down to the smallest details. The owners of this hotel have clearly thought hard about the customer experience and we loved the little extras - L'Occitane toiletries, little bags of sweets on our pillow in the evening and a delicious mini box of biscuits. And how refreshing to find a hotel that provides you with complimentary soft drinks in the fridge in your room and complimentary cakes and snacks in the hotel lobby during the afternoon. Breakfast was really good, buffet style with plenty to choose from. If you prefer something cheaper then turn right on leaving the hotel and walk for about 10 mins where the cafés are plentiful. Continue walking for another 10 mins and you find yourself standing alongside the Seine, in the heart of Paris with the Louvre and Notre Dame in sight. A fabulous hotel away from the noise and bustle of Paris and thoroughly recommended.
