My sister and I visited about a week ago and we really enjoyed our stay. The bed was comfortable, breakfast was good, and the hotel was on a quiet street. The staff was also friendly and helpful. They provided information on activities and booked a shuttle for us to the airport. We walked to the Jardin du Luxembourg and took the metro to other areas in Paris. Would stay here again!

I understand that [--] happens sometimes. Their A/C was broken the entire time we were there. The first day was ok-- we opened the windows and fresh air kept us cool, but as the days wore on and humidity started to creep up, it became unacceptable. I asked the desk what the deal was with the A/C, thinking it was only an isolated incident, and they told me that the entire A/C system is broken and it'll take weeks (maybe) to get it back running again. My problem is that they didn't try to make it up to us by maybe providing us with a fan or else giving us other perks. It was just one of those things that they expect you to shrug away, which I would have done if I weren't paying not a small sum of money. I know Paris is an expensive hotel town, but still.

Rooms were small, with two large luggages and a couple of carryons we had a hard time navigating around one another in the room. The shower situation is typical of Europe-- a bathtub without partitions and a showerhead that's awkwardly situated, so that the entire bathroom is wet after you shower. Is it too expensive or difficult to provide partitions to keep the water in? This is one thing I will NEVER understand about Europe. :)

Stayed at La Manucture for two nights. Hotel is your standard 3-star Parisian hotel (noisy, small, drafty) - but this is Paris, so one can't expect much more - unless willing to dish out 300€ per night. Clean with a very friendly and helpful staff, location is quite good and neighborhood is pleasant. Wifi was extraordinary good.

When we arrived at La Manufacture we found out I had made an error with my booking, however the Manageress Nadine & her staff could not have been more helpful. They were so friendly and accommodating. She offered us a room at a very reasonable rate and advised what the procedure would be to get our original booking refunded. They were also extremely helpful at giving us info in relation to the area and highlights of Paris. The room was spotless and the bed very comfortable. Transport was close and there was a great street market on Saturdays very near. We would definitely like to go back there when we visit Paris again.

We arrived June 4th to find a nice Hotel in a nice area of Paris. The rooms were very comfortable and the front reception was very friendly and informative. The hotel is located at the end of line 5 of the Metro with simple access to anywhere in Paris. There are lots of amenities close by, restaurants, shops, grocery stores and a shopping mall. A very pleasant stay and would book it again.. Thank You

La Maufacture is located on a quiet street in a busy commercial area. There is a wide selection of restaurants, shops, banks, etc. on the surrounding boulevards and side streets. Though the hotel is not near the main tourist sites, it is a block from Place D'Italie, where a number of bus lines and the Metro come together. We generally took the bus into the center of Paris, about a 15-20 minute ride, if the traffic was not too bad. (I would recommend the 10-ticket "carnet" available from machines in the Metro station - and be careful to validate your ticket when entering the Metro or boarding the bus. We encountered ticket checkers three times in five days.)

The hotel is comfortable and the staff is very friendly, English-speaking and eager to be helpful. Our room, however, was quite small. There was just enough room for a double bed and a small desk with a chair, but no bureau, though there was a small closet. The bathroom was modern and the shower had excellent water pressure and plenty of hot water. Everything was clean and up-to-date.

We had unusually warm weather for April and the room was warm at night because the central HVAC system had not yet been switched from heating to cooling. (We were told it could not do both,simultaneously.) This was alleviated by leaving open the french (of course) doors to the small balcony, but that did let in the limited street noise and light early in the morning.

Breakfast was good, with pastries, croissant (of course), jam, butter, fruit and hard-boiled eggs available, served in a pleasant breakfast room. It was included in our room rate, but would probably not be worth paying for separately.

This hotel is a sweet, quaint little place hidden away on a side street. It was about a 2 min walk to the metro which made it very easy to get anywhere we needed to go. We also enjoyed walking on the street Les Gobelins which had numerous dining options. The hotel room itself was typical European- small, slightly cramped, free of frills. We did have small bedside shelves, a desk, a small closet, hairdryer, and (surprise!) a towel warmer. Breakfast consisted of breads, cheeses, deli meats, cereal, yogurt, eggs, and fruit. The staff was very friendly and able to answer all our questions. Interestingly, they made us leave the room key at the front desk whenever we left. Seemed odd, but it gave us one less thing to worry about. We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms face the interior so your view is an alley and the backs of other buildings.
