Reviewed October 16, 2012

I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights in September. I can only rate my stay as okay. The room was very dark and I actually had to clean something off in the bathroom that looked like vomit or blood. The lock from inside the bedroom did not work so we slept with the desk and chair against the door. It was very noisy and a place where you should expect not to be able to sleep. I cannot fault the location--it was great...walking distance to everything and the Seine is up the block. The hotel staff are also very nice and helpful. This hotel is not actually part of the main one which is across the street. There is no lobby here with hotel staff. You need to gain access by your key card. This was a 2 night stay only--370 Euros--a good price in Paris and not worth even mentioning to the staff since it was only 2 nights. If location is what you are looking for with an affordable price..this is it but I in retrospect I would have paid more to stay at a nicer stay in a great location.

The Hotel is in such a fantastic locatition, more in the 6th Arondissement (St Germain) than the 5th (Latin Quarter). Was pleased with the whole 'vibe' of the area, with lots of shops, cafes, bars etc within reach. It's also within easy walking distance of Notre Dame, Centre Pompidou & The Louvre. As I was fortunate to have lovely Autumnal weather, it was nice to weave the bridges across the Seine, all the way to the Arc de Triomphe.
The staff at the hotel were helpful, the rooms were more than adequate for Paris size & I felt very welcome throughout my stay. Certainly wasn't a negative for me, as I like noise but, light sleepers should tread with caution as it is opposite a bar, so with a window open at night, it could be noisy & again in the mornings, the road cleaners were audible. This for me however, added to the charm of the place and the bar opposite, served a great pint of Kronenbourg!
Overall, great staff, great location, great hotel. If I go back to Paris, I mean when, I will bebooking at the Residence des Arts, which is why I have no hesitation in giving a 5 Star rating,

We stayed in an "Apartment" which consists of a Junior Suite plus an adjoining Deluxe Room. We were told we needed this much space for a family of four (children 8 and 10). Actually, the Junior Suite had more than enough space for four! The Junior Suite consisted of two rooms separated by a curtain, one with a king sized bed and one with a fold out double couch and a kitchen and bath. The bath was large and had both a shower and a tub and a separate toilet area. The kitchen consisted of a two burner hot plate, a small fridge, a sink, a microwave and some pots, dishware and utensils. The separate (different entrance door -- not connecting door) Deluxe Room had a king sized bed and smaller but adequate bath. Both rooms had flat screen televisions and complimentary wi-fi. The rooms were a little dilapidated and in need of a make-over, but they were kept clean and tidy. Of course the location is perfection. Other posts complained of noise from the Irish Pub downstairs -- with the windows closed and the a/c on, we heard nothing at all. As others have noted, the reception is in Villa D'Estrees across the very small street. All-in-all space is what we needed and we got more than enough, with adequate furnishings, good baths, clean rooms and a great location. By the way, we ended up having a friend come down from Amsterdam to visit us and stay in the Deluxe Room of our Apartment -- there was plenty of room for the five of us. You only need a Junior Suite for a family of 4 if 2 do not mind sharing a fold out couch.

We stayed here for three nights with our two almost teenage girls.

Location is fabulous - nearest metro was close and convenient for many destinations. Room was adequate - we had a junior suite on fourth floor with twin beds and a sofa bed (which was softer than the twins!). Pretty nice furnishings, good block out curtains, decent shower, wifi and tv all good. Little kitchenette a bit minimal and would have preferred just a kettle but we decided to eat out (so many options close by) so no problem for us. Lift was minuscule but they took our luggage up for us as room wasn't ready at our early arrival hour and we spent the day sight seeing. Shower door was sticking open but was fixed as soon as we mentioned it. Stairways steep and narrow and carpet a bit tired.

Street noise didn't bother us due to our own late nights but I thought windows were pretty good at soundproofing.

On the couple of occasions we encountered staff they were always helpful and welcoming.

Overall we were happy with this hotel and delighted with the location. We would come again.

Room Tip: Sorry - didn't see any other than our own. They all face onto the road with the pub opposite...

We just got back from another stay at Hotel Residence des Arts and its sister hotel across the street Villa d'Estrees. The reception is at Villa d"Estrees but the staff there takes very good care of you regardless of which place you are staying. It is a great location very near Place St. Michel and withing walking distance of most everything. The staff is fantastic. They are very helpful and knowledgeable and speak English very well. The rooms range in size and are priced accordingly. We find them to be reasonably priced for Paris and the particular location. They are all clean and the beds are good. It was very hot for this last trip so we can attest that the air conditioning works.

Room Tip: All rooms are similar. Choose a suite for more space.
