If you are in Paris visiting the touristic sights, or as I was on business, this hotel is really very good. It reminds me of an upper class Best Western hotel commonly found in Europe. The décor is similar but this hotel is larger.

The location is spot on. Close to Madeleine metro station and a short walk from the rue de Champs Elysées, it cannot get any better. And for 150 Euros per room per night, bed only, it is really very good.

My room was very clean, well furnished with all the facilities, not to forget an aircondition. Don't laugh, it can get really hot in Paris in summer and an a/c is a welcome reprieve.

Check in was swift and check out was painless. Everyone spoke English and was hospitable.

They also offer breakfast but I highly suggest you do not go for the option. Not because it's bad or pricey, but because a coffee and croissant in Paris should be had at a Parisian café.

Not much more to say about it other than a great stay, good hospitality and a super location.

Tip to the hotel: Put an ash tray outside the hotel entrance for smokers. Making a customer look for a trash can around the corner to discard a cigarette is not acceptable.

Arrived here after an 18-hour plus flight happy to be in Paris on my birthday but despite my wife (secretly) advising the hotel, no acknowledgement. I’m not precious about birthdays but know marketing and was impressed that the second hotel we stayed at had picked up on her notification with macaroons, sweets and bottled water. It’s the small things and at about $500 a night, perhaps something that L’Arcade should not miss. Chosen because of its location in the 8th and close to Madeleine’s church and big Princtemps and Lafayette shops, the hotel is one of four lined up along Rue de l’Arcade and a five-minute walk from the Metro. It’s easy to find - a bonus in any city. Advantages include the choice of its standard hotel rooms or self-contained apartments with a separate street entrance. We chose a triple room (our daughter was traveling with us) which turned out to be in the apartment section. It had three separate rooms including a decent size bathroom (well, for Paris). Rooms have cooking facilities and utensils, electric kettle and crockery/cutlery. They overlook the quiet streets behind Madeleine’s busyness - appreciated having proximity to eateries, transport and shops without the downside of noise. The apartment was recently refurbished and well presented with new fittings and wi-fi is free. But beds were adequate (may need upgrading) and disappointed no water in the rooms. Secure car parking is available nearby (if pre-arranged), under the church, for an expensive E25 a day. Hotel staff are keen to help but weren’t always accurate. We bypassed the optional breakfast at E15 per person and instead walked down to an excellent patisserie a couple of minutes down the road - Les Caprices de Charlotte - that does breakfast/lunch (except Sunday). The place was suggested by the hotel staff. It is close to a dozen small restaurants and bars including Paris London (good, but a bit basic) and Cafe Madeleine which nailed the cocktails (E9.50-12.50) and Mita Mita entree plate (E16.50). Visit the church, see Lafayette’s cathedral-like interior, walk down to the Louvre and its gardens (and a bit further to the Seine) or just hop a Metro and go anywhere. The 8th is my favourite slice of Paris because it’s close to everything yet is relatively quiet. Unfortunately, it’s also a bit more expensive than some other arrondissements. Tip is to try for the apartments to give yourself a bit more room, and to get up to the third or fourth floor (there is a modern lift). We would definitely return to this hotel and recommend it highly.

Room Tip: The private apartment section of the hotel can have cooking facilities and rooms are ikely to be big...

I recently stayed at Hotel de l'Arcade for 4 nights. It was at the end of a long trip and frankly, I did no research, just spoke to a friend who stayed here last year and said it was wonderful. she was RIGHT! The room was good, the location perfect (near the Madeleine area) and the staff were outstanding - seriously!. Jeremie, Cecile, Praxede and even a lovely girl who had just started that week went out of their way to make our stay memorable. We asked Jeremie for a particular type of restuarant and he was spot on. The next day we found a restaurant for lunch and it was rubbish. We decided to try Jeremie (an on subsequent nights the other staff) and each time they scored a bullseye with what we were seeking. They even got us a superb table at a restaurant with a fabulous view of the Eiffel Tower. Hotels and a dime a dozen in Paris however I would strongly recommend this one as you cannot buy the advice, genuine help and assistance by the staff. When a flash 3 day air traffic controllers strike struck in Paris on our day of departure, the staff rallied, got us to our destinations and kept track of the updates for us - what more do you want? Whoever is responsible for the recruitment and retention of staff of this calibre - well done! Give them a bonus and I will certainly return and encourage my friends to do so. Thank you, you made my trip to Paris even better

Their website and room photos accurately describes rooms, amenities, and options. Staff was very courteous, helpful and responsive.
Fri, Sat and Sun Night desk person was the only negative. Like talking to a post. However, the Mon night desk person was great.
Enjoyed our stay and would stay there each trip to Paris.

We have stayed here regularly for the past 7 or 8 years visiting 2 or 3 times each year. We have stayed in most of the different room types and always appreciate, the comfort, location, style and good value of this hotel. Most recently we were on a 3 day business trip with a fair amount of luggage - all of which fitted into our standard size room without a problem. After dinner on our first night, (recommended and booked by Praxede, at L'Opera restaurant - fabulous), we returned to the hotel towards midnight and discovered that our room didn't have any spare pillows nor was our phone working. We suffered our first and only 'communications breakdown' with a night duty manager who, we felt, did not address the problem with the hotel's usual speed and graciousness. After 45 minutes both problems were fixed but not without 3 trips to reception and a
slightly heated exchange. However, true to form,next day the hotel's fabulous management and front desk people were profusely apologetic and defused the situation beautifully. Glitches happen and a true measure of customer service is how they are dealt with. I also have to add that the quality of the front desk's 'concierge' service is superb. They really know their restaurants and can get tables at even the 'hottest' addresses.

They were very, very helpful. The room was beautiful and clean. Very large bathroom. Helped me find transportation to and from the Eiffel Tower, Arch d' Triomphe, Champs-Elysées etc. Would definitely stay there again.

This small and friendly hotel is certainly not the cheapest but has everything right- from the friendly welcome abd great service by all of the reception staff to the well sized rooms and lovely bathrooms (with a bath!)
Well placed for the north of the city- close to the big stores and a stroll from the Madellaine Metro the hotel is none the less in a quiet street with little traffic.
I can't fault it!
