The Crayon hotel. The hotel and rooms are small but artistically decorated to do more with less and the location is amazing, near many shops, restaurants, boutiques, the metro, and many various pubs, even a shopping mall located just a couple of blocks away!. The staff is amazing- super friendly, and speak both French and English... It helps because they... More

A very unique feel when you first walk into the hotel...everyone was very helpful. Even got a great recommendation for dinner...they made the reservation for us, quick and easy. You... More

We were incredibly happy with the service and room at the Crayon. Our room was red with a sketch of a woman on the wall. The air conditioning was excellent. The wifi was excellent. It was a small room but big enough for two of us with a decent bathroom. The staff was exceptionally helpful with storing our luggage on... More

I had the experience to visit this hotel for one afternoon. Reception counter is cool with vibrant colors, up to it's name as Crayon Hotel. In the room, color code on the wall is nice... room is small but perfect for 2 person. Bathroom with nice blue/white tiles on the wall. On the wall, a drawing of naked woman.. nice.... More

This affordable hotel is in a perfect location, very close to a major train station and the Louvre. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The room was small, however very usable and not inconvenient. I would definitely stay here again if I come back to Paris.

This was a great mid-price hotel that is a short walking distance to the Louvre. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the room was clean (but small) and we loved the location. It was great to be able to walk down to the Louvre for a couple of hours and walk back without getting totally overwhelmed by the museum... More

This was my first stay at Hotel Crayon -- I usually stay near Montparnasse -- and I loved it. The staff was exceptionally friendly, the hotel is beautifully decorated, and the amenities are terrific. My room, while small, was beautiful with sketches on the walls and with a very comfortable bed. Importantly for me, it was very quiet at night... More

Hotel Crayon is very close to Louvre, plenty restaurants to eat, metro stations, perfect to have a morning walk towards Seine and have a quick breakfast in one of the small cafes around. Banks, convenience stores and transportation is around the corner. The hotel is modern and cozy, you will have all you need. Elevator is somewhat slow, but if... More
