“Best Boutique Hotel in Paris!”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

I have been staying at the Artu Hotel for over 10 years and it has become my Paris home away form home. The location is the best to acess all the sights, best restaurants and unique little shops.
Sanjay is the best concierge in the city. Whatever you need he will take care of. I rely on him to make all my restaurant reservations a week before i get to Paris and when i arrive a floder is set up with all the info and directions to get to the places. He is not just a concierge, but has become a trusted friend.
Rooms in the front over look the busy Rue De Buci and can get quite noisy on a weeknd night. the rooms in the back are quiet and have queen beds. All are the typical cosy space for a Paris Hotel.
I will be going back again next year!

Great location, close to Metro stops, tons of food choices, shopping and plenty of major sites in walking distance. I traveled all over Europe and Sanjay is the best, whatever you need, he will handle, as he told me, "he loves his job". Some rooms are small, but in Europe standards, pretty common size.

We have stayed here maybe 10 times over the past dozen or more years. The decor has changed, the name of the hotel has changed, the rooms remain small but comfortable (the space within the rooms is well-utilized), the exchange rate against the USD has worsened, and yet we keep returning because the location is excellent, and we have the ever-helpful Sanjay's smiling face to welcome us back to Paris. He makes us feel taken care of, and as always, he is able to make all of our dinner reservations in advance and offer advice about pretty much anything. Could we manage somewhere else, without him, save a few dollars? Sure, but he is part of our Paris experience and it's hard to imagine it without him. We will be back.

We picked this hotel based on all of the great reviews on Trip Advisor. Yes, we did see the legendary Sanjay but only for a very brief time when we first arrived. The other fellow at the front desk was pleasant but a little daffy. He said he had just started working there. His English was limited, our French was bad/non existent (It was something out of a Lucy episode...lots of awkward pointing and pauses). So, although he was nice enough, we did get quite a few puzzled looks and a number of "I don't knows".

The room was cool and clean but nothing really special with no clock so when the drapes were drawn, we had no idea what time it was. Additionally, I don't think this is a true 4 star hotel...more like 3.

The location was excellent. Very much classic Paris in an area with dozens of amazing restaurants, bistros and very high end shopping. Another major plus is that you could walk to almost everything.

The major drawback was probably due to the size of the hotel. For me, perhaps it was a little too small with not enough staff to truly offer good service and suggestions for guest who were having a first time expedience in Paris. All in all, it was good but you were pretty much left on your own to fend for yourself and is perhaps better suited for those who are more familiar with the city.

We were happy to make a repeat visit to the Artus. Our decision was based mainly on location and our wonderful experience with Sanjay. Dining is extremely important to us in Paris, so Sanjay is the only one I would trust to make reservations for us. He is the biggest reason we returned. I agree with other reviews, though, that the other front desk staff is lacking in warmth and abilities.

The RER B is within walking distance (about 15 min or so) to come right in from CDG and several metro lines are convenient, although we walk almost everywhere.

The rooms are, of course, very tight, but we stayed in a renovated room which was quiet and comfortable enough. The Palais des Thes is a wonderful touch. The bathroom amenities are no luxury, but I always bring my own conditioner when traveling to Europe, as most hotels don't provide a good one.

My husband and I stayed 6 nights in September. This was our second stay at the hotel. Located close to Metro station, great restaurants, shopping, grocery store and walking distance to many of the "must see" sites. There is a bar that recently opened that is connected to the hotel, which is so fun.
Make sure to communicate with the concierge, Sanjay, about any requests or questions you have. He knows everyone and is always happy to help. The breakfast is beyond what you will find at any other Parisian hotel and is included if you book directly with the hotel. Christian takes great pride in making certain it is perfect. He does a wonderful job.
We stayed in room 140, the Duplex Suite, with a top floor bathroom, which includes two sinks, a bathtub and shower, and plenty of room for a couple of suitcases. Although higher priced, the larger space is worth it and the room is quiet, quiet, quiet.
Please don't forget to tip at breakfast ( 2-5 Euros daily is appropriate ), tip housekeeping (at the end of your stay) and tip Sanjay for his assistance.
I can't say enough good things about the hotel.

We stayed 5 nights in August. Excellent location! Step out of the hotel and you have Saint Germain des Pres at your footsteps. Lots of loal bars and restaurants. A Carrefour grocery store right across. Few mins from Mabillion & Saint Germain stations. Hotel staff very friendly and helpful. Rooms are a wee bit small. Rooms are clean and have air conditioning. Free computer at the reception and wi-fi available.
