“Great value, lovely area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

Excellent find. Loved the area - lots of bakeries, cafes, bars and restaurants but still quiet at night. Close to Nation for the RER and metro trains making it so easy to get around Paris (we had Paris Visite unlimited passes, hassle-free). We walked into the central area once and it took about 45 mins - 1 hour.

Room was fairly small and simple but nice, with a modern bathroom. Couldn't fault it. Aircon, double glazing, great shower, free wifi and quiet at night (even with a street view room). Hotel has a nice lounge but we didn't really use it.

Tip: there are some nice bars and restaurants if you walk DOWN the street, as well as the busier ones up the street around Nation. Also, learn french menu items as a lot of the restaurants round there didn't have English menus. I think that's a good sign, it's just a shame we couldn't take advantage of the authentic french restaurants!

We spent the first week of July in Paris and we booked everything far advance. We found this hotel on tripadvisor and decided to go for it due to its good ratings and reviews. I was personally slightly nervous on what the hotel would turn out to be like but I was pleasantly surprised when we eventually got there. The hotel definitely stands out on the street as it looks better than the neighbouring buildings. We got there at 8.30 PM (ish) and there was a guy at the reception who spoke good english. He just wanted the name we booked it with and that's it - we got the key. We were on the third floor (37) so had to take the elevator, which was very small! The corridors were also quite narrow and tight. The room was on the smaller side as well but very nice and clean.
The biggest minus for me was how thin the walls were - we could hear everyone walking above us and next to us (but no talking or anything else). The room also had an AC system, which was very appreciated as it was so hot there.
We didn't use the breakfast facilities, so no comment in that department, however the reception and breakfast area of the hotel did look nice!
Another downside was the number of toilet rolls, because we only got given 1 and when asked for some more, only got given another one and wasn't replaced we decided to just buy our own toilet rolls. Also, this might just be me being fussy but the cleaning standards weren't always top notch. Some trash was left at the bottom of the bin etc.
The service was always friendly and with good english. On the morning of our departure however, we were given wrong directions to Gare du Nord by the reception, which we luckily realised before it was too late.
Location was very good - Nation and Picpus metro stations were so close and everything was very accessible. Casino supermarket was very close as well as some really good food places.
We would stay there again but at the same time, would like to try new hotels as well!!

Dear Maria P
Thank you very much for having taken the time to share your comments on Tripadvisor, following your recent stay at the Hotel du Printemps. It was indeed a pleasure to read that you were overall satisfied with our services and enjoyed your stay with us.
I am really sorry for the tiny hiccups you experienced and I have shared them with our staff as we are very concerned by the satisfaction of our guests and the cleanliness of the hotel. I would like however to point out that even if according to our green program we try to avoid any waste we are not limiting the toilet rolls and would give more than one roll if asked by a guest.
Hoping to have the opportunity to welcome you again in Paris
Kind regards

We spent 2 days in Paris and booked this hotel based on the many positive reviews and the reasonable price. The Printemps is located a bit out of the traditional touristy centre of Paris, in a more quiet neighborhood. This was actually a plus for us. After a day of walking to the more crowded spots in Paris, it is nice to come back to a more relaxed area of the city. The subway station is literally a few minutes walk and you can get to the main touristy sites within 10-20 mins.

What we noticed immediately is how clean the hotel is and how well appointed. The hotel staff is very friendly. From check-in to assisting with any questions we had, it was all with a big smile. The rooms are small but well appointed. We had a room with 2 small beds and for us that was big enough. There is a flatscreen TV, there is complimentary wifi in the room and the bathroom was large enough.

We did not make use of the breakfast which you can add for 9 EUR pp. We cannot comment on this.

All in all a very good stay and we would definitely recommend it for anybody who is traveling to Paris for a couple of days.

We chose the Printemps based on other reviews and were not disappointed. Our room (42) was certainly compact in size but didn't lack anything in the way of facilities and although it overlooked the Boulevard de Picpus, the double glazing ensured that my wife & I enjoyed a good night's sleep. The location is out of the city centre but excellent public transport links, particularly from Nation meant that none of main tourist sites were more than a few minutes away. We also used bus 56 which passes the hotel and goes to Montmartre and which offers an interesting if somewhat leisurely ride across the city.

Breakfast was of the usual continental style but was more than enough to stoke us up for the day. Being located in a predominantly residential area, there are a number of restaurants nearby and the receptionist recommended two in particular, Le Picotin and Le Bouche a Oreille both of which were less than five minutes walk away. We patronised them both and weren't disappointed by either.

With a quiet and convenient location, helpful staff and comfortable if compact rooms, the Printemps offers excellent value for money and we would use it again on future visits.

Dear Pete
Many thanks for taking the time to write on your stay with us and for your appreciation of the value of our hotel. It seems that a growing number of guests appreciate the possibility to stay a bit outside the typical tourist locations in a more Parisian district like ours which offers a lot of good restaurants and a taste of local experience.
We hope to have the pleasure to welcome you back to a new experience “à la parisienne”!
Kind regards

Hotel du printemps is located in the 12th arrondissement - a bit removed from the heart of Paris. The metro stops 'Nation' and 'Picpus' are quite nearby though, so getting around was not a problem. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel itself was cosy and had a nice atmosphere.

The rooms weren't too big, but I doubt many in Paris are. During our trip we changed rooms. Both rooms were very clean and neatly decorated. The shower was excellent, although the shower curtain sometimes proved uncooperative.
We didn't have breakfast at the hotel - we preferred to go to the local bakeries, of which there are quite a few. An excellent hotel for a very reasonable price. Would stay here again.

We chose this hotel after reading reviews on TA. Location is great, a little away from the hustle and Bustle but easy access to the major sites with the metro. Picpus metro is round the corner and Nation about 5 mins walk. Hotel itself is great, staff are very friendly and made you feel welcome. Room (21) was spacious, bigger than I was expecting. It was relatively narrow but pretty long so there was space to store two suitcases without tripping over them. We did not have breakfast in the hotel but preferred to get a croissant at one of the many close by Patisserie or else breakfast at the Cafe Cozy down the street. Its really a quiet neighbourhood so you could sit on the street at the cafe without it being too noisy. There is a Carrefour express grocery store also about 5 mins walk where you can by some food supplies if you need (fruit, drinks wine etc). All in all a great place to stay in Paris, good value. Would stay here again.
