Good Points: good location, nice staff, quiet, can come and go as you please, spacious, cheap (60 euro per night).

Bad Points: Really really dirty, stains on walls, doors, carpets etc, cigarette ash boxes lying along corridors. Bathroom mouldy, tiny and very dirty, lots of insects, no breakfast.

We have stayed all over Europe in Budget and hostel accommodation but have never stayed in somewhere as dirty as this hotel. The thing is though it could be a really great hotel, it's spacious, airy and quiet but there is absolutely no effort whatsoever put in to the cleaning of it (despite the cleaning staff being lovely and bubbly).

The skirting boards are thick with dust, the wardrobe is covered in other people's grubby handprints and the bathroom hasn't been properly cleaned in around a decade and there are plenty of insects to keep you company. Ashtray's (some of them broken) line the corridor, curtains hang of the rail and the television is too high on the wall.

The location is really good, with three metro stops 'Bastille' only 5 minutes away. Rue Antonie is filled with beautiful delis and an abundance of nice restaurants and cafes are nearby. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone but would stretch the budget, opt for somewhere more expensive and perhaps stay in Paris for a shorter amount of time.

It's such a pity really as with a bit of effort this place could be great.

The rooms are fairly comfortable but it has a stong ciggy smell that you can't get rid of. Bed sheet are changed daily so I would say fairly clean but this place does not have ac so in summer try to ask if they have ac before you confirm your booking. The price was the one that made it all right. Oh yeah, no brekkie either but there are lots of cafe around the area.

Rite in the heart of Marais district, this hotel is super accessible with only 5 min walk away from the St Paul Metro. It is only 4-5 metro stops away from the Lourve Museum, Notre Dame Cathedral, Orsay Museum, Pompidou Ctr, etc. so it is very convenient.

There a supermart nearby too, so you can stock drinking water or juice and a little breakfast if you do not have a budget for breakfast everyday that you are staying.

First let me say that my husband and I had to move to this hotel after realizing that we could not stay at the previous hotel due to insufficient availability of rooms (a mutual misunderstanding--not a big deal). I mention this because we did not have time to check out reviews beforehand. We tried to view a room before we agreed to stay but each room was full and there was not an option to see one. Hotel Sully was within walking distance of Grand Hotel du Loiret (the original hotel) and it was nice to find a place that had the same price and same features with the help of the front desk manager at Loiret. We were grateful to find another place in the Marais. While we would send friends and family to Loiret, we cannot say the same for Sully. In general though, we have a high tolerance....and though this is not the worst it is far from the best. Then again, you are only paying 55 euro for a double bed with a hot shower and toilet in the room.

The man at the front desk was extremely friendly, helpful and kind so no complaints there. I'm not even sure if he is the owner, or just the front desk manager so he may have limited influence on the state of the place. The room did not seem terribly clean, and it is likely that the patterned carpet masked more serious stains. The bathroom had a cracked mirror but the water was hot.There was a tv in the room though it's up quite high and can be a bit uncomfortable to view when lying in bed. It was a little dark in the bathroom with the one light. The sheets seemed clean but to be honest I didn't inspect too closely. I seem to recall some water stains on the walls and the curtains were not terribly fresh, and some hooks were missing. Towels were provided, and I don't think they were changed but we were only there for 2 nights so it was fine. Overall it was adequate given the circumstances but we'd not return.The walkup could be tough for some people, we were on the 5th or 6th floor, and we had a decent street view which was nice for nighttime. The hallways are dark at night and in the day. The stairwell has lights but I did not see lights in the hallway so we had to feel for the lock when we came in at night. There are what looked to be iron ashtrays (in the shape of window flowerboxes?!?!) propping up the doors to each floor. Very strange. They all had a lot of ash in them (though one was broken and ash was spilling out onto the carpet). Perhaps they were there for the front desk man who smoked like a chimney. You could tell when he was around because the smoke seeped in under the door. The smell of cigarette smoke got progressively stronger each floor you walked down, so even if you were partially sighted you would have had another cue as to which level you were on. There was 24 hour service at the door, and the location was convenient to the Saint Paul metro stop, shops and cafes. Location-wise it's great, but if you have a low tolerance to smoke like I do, definitely look elsewhere.

I am astounded to read the poor reviews of the Hotel de Sully in the Marias district of Paris. I have stayed there three times. Both my brothers have stayed there and so have my parents. It cost us 72 Euros a night. Find anything for less which doesn't include sleeping under a newspaper on the Rue Saint Antoine and I'll listen. The hotel is full of mad 50's Parisian charm. Yes the pipes make noise - you're sleeping in a 500 year old building. And the shower curtain doesn't work - you're in Paris in the most central and fantastic location in Paris! Perhaps the gourmet travellers who hate it should stay at home. We love it!

We have travelled in FRANCE many times before, but our stay at this place really opened our eyes. We Tourists very often have no idea of their existence: B-E-D B-U-G-S !!!!

We learned that the musty smell that is very common with "BUDGET" hotels is almost always the first sign that the hotel rooms are infested with BED BUGS. You will not see BED BUGS during the day, they are nocturnal.

This HOTEL SULLY seems to fit that bill, but it wasn't until our 3rd night, when I woke up to visit the W/C that we finally learned this all too important lesson.

To our sheer horror, turning on the lights revealed an army of flat brown BED BUGS of various sizes crawling all over our bed: PILLOWS, SHEETS, COVERS, HEAD BOARD, WALLS....

The BED BUGS had bittens us both while we were sleeping. They come out of various cracks in the walls/baseboards, under the bed, in between mattress and box spring, underside of night tables, etc... as soon as the lights are turned off, and then they feast on their unsuspecting hosts. Their bites are painless, but they leave a telltale sign, often a tiny red mark where they bit and drew blood.

Squashing a half dozens BED BUGS resulted in tiny blood spots staining the bed sheets. Closer inspection of the room showed that we were part of a feeding cycle for dozens of of BED BUGS. OH BTW, That musty smell that greeted us on the firstf day, is actually the smell that is given off when the BED BUGS are squashed.

My wife and I dressed, and while she packed (PAYING SPECIAL ATTENTION TO SHAKING OFF ANY BEDBUGS ATTACHED TO OUR CLOTHING) I marched off at 3:30AM looking for a new hotel for the remaining 5 days in PARIS!!!
(we stayed at HOTEL SEVIGNE, 2 RUE MAHLER...EXCELLENT!!!)

Upon our return home to Canada, we read up on this subject and learned that the BED BUG problem is not an isolated case restricted only to HOTEL SULLY. Many budget or "cheap" hotels in PARIS can have have this problem, and the BED BUG problem can be brought home with you if you don't take precautions.

BED-BUGS are a problem that our "LONELY PLANET PARIS" GUIDE BOOK did not address, and it's our feeling that travellers are not being given all the facts. The fact is that if you stay in BED BUG infested hotels , you may be bringing the problem back into your home!!

HOTEL SULLY is a cheap place to crash. The owner is friendly yes, but the place isn't the most clean either.
If you don't mind the ever growing problem ( yes , there really is a problem with BED BUGS in Paris) then this hotel may fit your requirements.
