“Great Value”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

We have stayed at this hotel at least 5-6 times throughout the years. It is conveniently located five to ten minutes to the metro, and 15 minutes to the best shopping and pastry shops! I love how it is not on the main street and you can go the local boulangerie for baguettes a few minutes away. The rooms itself are large for Parisian boutique hotel standards which is a nice plus. The staff is not friendly, but they are helpful. Note that the rooms/bathrooms are looking a bit dated, and towels are thin and dingy (bit pet peeve of mine). I love this hotel for the charm, the value, and the best part, the location.

My second visit to this lovely hotel. The first time I stayed here I was so impressed with the accommodations and staff, not to mention the fabulous location. Thankfully, nothing had changed. Spacious, comfortable rooms with free wi-fi. Excellent breakfast in a charming room just off the lobby. It is a short walking distance to major department stores, Concorde and Champs Elysee.
The staff, Cecile, Praxede and Jeremie could not have been more helpful. Viviane is a wonderful manager who welcomed me back warmly and made sure my stay was perfect.
I hope to return to Paris in the near future and would definitely stay at this great hotel.

I still adore this hotel. Welcomed back like an old friend to find that standards are still as high as ever. Every single staff member we came into contact with was friendly and beyond helpful. The front desk provided help with directions and local information which proved invaluable.

This is a small, discreet, unhurried hotel which is an oasis of calm in a big, bustling city. It feels safe and inviting, elegant and warm. The location is just unbeatable and lots of major sites are a short walk away as are shops and the lovely cafes of Madeleine. And if you want to buy a bottle of wine to enjoy in your room ask at reception for a corkscrew as they keep a supply!

Wandered into a lovely restaurant, L’Ecluse at 15 place de madeleine (a couple of minutes walk from the hotel) and enjoyed grand cru wines by the glass and some delicious food.

Big thanks to all the team there for making it another memorable stay especially to Viviane who runs a superb hotel!

Room Tip: 503 is an excellent sized twin room

A good clean and very comfortable hotel well situated for many tourist areas and many theatres. Good breakfast and easy to access from various metro stations. Would definitely stay here again. Plenty of places to eat of various types nearby.

I have just returned from Paris - spent 5 days with my family. As other reviewers have pointed out the main asset of the hotel is its location - the main hotspots are within walking distance, even for a big city like Paris. Galeries Lafayette, Printemps and the shopping area of Boulevard Haussmann is literally round the corner. Louvre, Tuileries, Orangerie museum, no more than 10 minutes walk, passing by Place Vendome and Place de la Concorde. The Elysee Palace is in the neighbourhood as well. The hotel is not cheap, but within the average of the area. Rooms are larger than average and can comfortably accomodate big families : we were 5 persons in two large connecting rooms - very unusual for Paris. If you come by car, the hotel offers special daily rates in a parking situated in the Madeleine square, less than 200 mt away. Wifi is free and reliable. We did not try the breakfast. There are nice eateries and cafes nearby, but bear in mind that the area is not cheap! Beds are extremely comfortable. A special thanks to the staff, always polite and welcoming throughout our stay. This will be our hotel when we visit Paris again (hopefully very soon!)

Stayed here with friends who made recommendation.
One of the three rooms was not ready upon arrival, as we were early. They voluntered to store our luggage till room was ready.
It is near the Madeline area, which has a good subway stop to get around town.
Found the room and bathroom spacious, a rare treat in France. The tub was large enough to lay down in and soak after a big day of sightseeing. One hint, one valve is for the tub and one for the shower, temperature is selected by a knob in the middle.
The front desk was very helpful in planning subway routes to different attractions. Also suggestions on what type of pass (single ticket or milti day) to use on the subway.
There are several good restaurants, close, but all very expensive.
I thought the breakfast price was in line for Paris, but found it was just continental and if you wanted an omlette, that was extra, pushing the price on the high side for me.
There is a pastry shop not far away, which is a good value for a morning start.
Nice to have a safe in the room.
We arranged a taxi from the hotel to the airport, arranging the price in advance. It was on time, hauled all six of us and our luggage, and was the cheapest ride whe found on the trip. Definitely book your taxi through the hotel.
Nice hotel with great staff.

My husband and I have visited Hotel de l'Arcade many times and have never been disappointed. The hotel has a perfect location. You can easily reach both the biggest departments stores as well as many famous sights on foot and you also have an easy access to the metro. The hotel is compact, very clean and beautifully decorated. The rooms are convenient and you have everything you need available. This time we stayed on the sixth floor where we had a small balcony and could enjoy the lovely view over the roofs. The service of the front desk is excellent and all members of the staff are most helpful and speak very good English. Breakfast is not included in the price, but worth of trying. I wonder if you can find a better price-quality-ratio in Paris!

Room Tip: Ask for help from the reception.
