Hotel Icone
Ranked #731 of 1,803 Hotels in Paris
Reviewed September 22, 2012

We spent 5 days in Paris in early September 2012. The hotel was really nice, extremely clean and nicely furnished. The staff was very helpful and took very good care of us.

The rooms are clean and comfortable... the rooms and corridors are a bit small and tight, but that's perfectly normal in Paris. Staff very helpful, spoke English very well, good cleaning staff.

The hotel is located very well near the big boulevards and avenues. The big departement stores are within 5-10 minutes walking distance from the hotel (slow walking), there are two metro stop (subway) close by (Richelieu-Drouot and Quatre Septembre). The area is within 10-15 walking distance from the Louvre, The Madeleine and Opéra Garnier).

Quite busy area during daytime, many banks and big companies on these boulevards, many many cafés, bistros and restaurants.

well worth the money, would stay again definitely.

I have stayed in Paris on many occasions and this hotel is the best by far. Conveniently located near the Metro and within easy walking distance of any type of restaurant you could ever want. By Parisian standards the room we stayed in was larger than average and the hotel was very well decorated. Our room had efficient airconditioning which we could control, essential in hot Parisian summers.

I stayed with my two daughters and found the staff were extremely helpful, friendly and welcoming. Internet service is free, garage parking is available albeit quite expensive. Overall the hotel represents excellent value for money and I would strongly recommend it to anyone considering a trip to Paris.

I don't understand why people are complaining about this hotel's room size. It is a hotel in Paris. Of course most of the hotel rooms in Paris city center are small! Stay at Four Seasons and pay a lot of money if you insist to have big rooms.

Anyway, this hotel is great. I got a room with balcony which is nice. The hotel and rooms are well designed and it seems that they have just been renovated. The breakfast was quite expensive although the quality was good. The hotel staff were great, not over the top but efficient.

One of the great things about the hotel is also the location. Very close to metro station and it is even reachable from major Paris attraction by foot. It is off Boulevard des Italiens so it is still quiet but offer convenience for eating and shopping.

Overall, I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to avoid staying at dull chain hotels.

Here there are my opinions:

Room: everything was small (from the bed to the desk) and the toilet. You don't have enough space to put your luggage!! The decoration is OK, and you can see it is new. The window was very thin and we could hear from outside...
Location: in a perfect place! so do not doubt for the location. Near the subway and other interesting places.
Staff: the person who was in the front desk wasn't very welcomed and helpful.
Meal: small breakfast

Thank you very much!!

Nice clean modern updated rooms and bathrooms but you have to expect in central Paris that rooms are small by Australian/US standards, no surprises there
The location is excellant being right next to the Richelieu Metro station with which you can get anywhere in Paris with ease
Lots of restaurants and bars in surrounding area
Highly recommended! Very nice experience

This hotel is in a great location, just a minute walk from Boulevard des Italiens and Richelieu-Drouot metro station. The room is small (but not tiny) by american standards, but very clean and decorated with taste. I had to unexpectedly extend my stay in Paris by a few days, and the hotel staff was very helpfull by accomodating me with a big discount, and just treated me like family. I would definitely recommend this hotel to any of my friends who plan to visit Paris.
