4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Friends and I stayed here and were very impressed. The location near both the Louvre and Les Halles is fantastic! We walked everywhere, but it's close to Louvre-Rivoli and Les Halles metro stations. The staff is helpful and friendly. My room was comfortable but very, very small. In my many trips to Paris, I think this was the smallest room... More

I really liked this hotel. Very friendly staff, central location near the Louvre, but on a (mostly) quiet street, cool stylish décor. Small rooms, but you're not in Paris to spend time in your room. Nice shower. I was woken up at 6.30 on two mornings by a garbage truck passing, but that's not the hotel's fault. I found the... More

A quirky hotel with artwork over every surface. Very near to the Louvre and close to lots of bars and restaurants. We came on by train, it's about 10 minutes walk from the station. The staff were lovely, not aloof but friendly and helpful. We only stayed one night, which was fortunate because our room was tiny, only one person... More

Dear Carol W, Thank you so much for your kind review on Tripadvisor. Hotel Crayon & Hotel Crayon Rouge have different size of rooms, you are absolutly right, next time for a longer stay you the option to reserve a bugger room and even a Junior Suite. We hope to see you again soon, Kinds regards from all the team. More

I booked this hotel, partly because of the proximity to the Louvre, but also because of the quirkiness of the hotel. Neither was a disappointment. Great room, excellent bed, wonderful staff, superior location, quiet street in the middle of Paris

Stayed at Hotel Crayon for 3 nights as part of our daughter's 18th Birthday celebrations, the hotel was ideally situated near the Louvre and within walking distance. Although the rooms are small they are really well decorated and 'quirky'. The staff are extremely friendly and they operate an 'Honesty' Bar which will allow you to help yourself to drink, coffee...

The Hotel Crayon provides a welcome dollop of colour at every turn, a playful and endearing retreat among the touristic distractions multiplying at its doorstep. On entering a room one can’t help but feel as though they had stepped into a children’s novel about a little girl who likes books and pastels, were it not for the brushed sketch of... More
