I arrived 5.10/12 .I was given room no: 18 .It was stinking of cigarettes. I complained No sympathy just a fresh air spray deposited in the room,Within a day I was covered with bites all over my body. which I discovered were flea bites. Pulling the bed away friom the wall I discovered left over rubish hair tisues etc. When I arrived at my next destination in the Charante I went to the phamastist who doagnosed me with flea infestation. The Hotelel reception was rather lazy

Room Tip: Room no. 18 smelt of smoke also infested with fleas

Rooms were dirty and smelly and without elevator there is quite a work to get to the upper floors. Nothing in this place was all right - maybe the walking distance to the cemetary where Jim Morrison is buried is the only thing to mention.

This hotel is cheap and has a good location, but the rooms are gloomy. There is no elevator and if you are unlucky you will have to carry your luggage to the 5th floor. To use the TV you have to get the remote control at the reception desk. Free wi-fi.

There were no redeeming qualities at Grand Hotel Voltaire Paris. All hallways and rooms stank of old smoke, the linens and towels were torn and old, the rooms facing the road were extremely noisy, and the television was broken.

This is a six floor building with no elevator and a very difficult spiral staircase. Would be okay for 20€ but not 80€.

At breakfast, there were no plates or bowls provided. 6€ per person bought us coffee, 1 croissont and 1 roll. Do not stay here.

Room Tip: Any rooms on the higher floors require lots of climbs up the stairs. If possible, avoid rooms copen...

I stayed here for 3 weeks and it was such a great experience. The rooms were nice an updated including the bathroom! Wonderful shower :) The hotel owners were more than kind and helpful. Example, i had fallen and hurt my foot so one night I ask for some ice, while there was no ice the owner graciously gave me a frozen bottle of water that he put in the fridge for himself. Every night after that with out my asking he would make me a tray of ice and give it to me at the end of the day. And that is just one of the many things they did to make me feel at home.

Happy American girl :)

the Hotel has small rooms and no elevator; however, rooms were very clean, bathrooms small but in good order, towels available, good shower; location is very good, and the attitude of reception employees was friendly and collaborative. We stayed four nights, and did not regret for a moment the choice of the place. We had one room at the 2nd floor and one at the fifth, view at the fifth was very nice, the room at the 2nd floor faced the courtyard, so it was very quiet. I will suggest the hotel to friends and colleagues. Very good.

Room Tip: if you do not speak French, speak slowly otherwise employees will not easily understand

Center of the city, across the train station were the reason we chose this place, room was small, no elevator, but clean and comfy. Staff were the family members who own the place, were very helpful and nice. Staying there gave us the real feel of Paris, our view from the room were the rooftops where you see the doves and pigeons fly by.

Room Tip: Small hotel with no fitness center, but walking is already a very good exercise; and no restaurant...
