It is our second trip to Paris and it was easy decision to stay at this fabulous little hotel again. We stumbled on it by accident 2.5 years ago, and we consider it a lucky find.

It is perfectly located near all the best shops and public transport, the rooms are warm and cozy (in fact they have been refurbished since our first visit and are even nicer than we remembered!)

On the same street are some great restaurants including a super italian eaterie (get in early for a table) and delish Korean. The hotel itself has a buffet style breakfast that is lovely too.

The staff are as equally warm as the hotel surroundings and helped us out with all our public transport enquiries etc (a thank you to Virginia for her tips on getting to La Village).

The lounge is also really nice and there is free wifi in the lounge and hotel rooms.

In a nutshell this is a great hotel that represents remarkable value for its location and yes, we would happily come back for a third time. If it ain't broke why fixit?

Highly highly recommend.

we stayed at this hotel for one week in early november. It was an easy check in. If you dont pack light you might need to make a few trips with your bags, small elevator. The hotel is a short walk to public transportation, metro and buses. The staff was very helpful, they helped us make reservations at a restaraunt, and then change them. There was a breakfast area downstairs. Nothing to exciting, basic stuff, but tasted good. It was very nice for those days you just want to grab something and go so you can start your day. The hotel room itself was clean. nothing over the top, small. but large enough for two people who came to paris to see the sites not spend time in their room. the bathroom was just what i would expect. the shower was small, would fit one person with not a lot of wiggle room. able to access internet from my room, but when i needed a bigger screen i was able to use a computer which is available in the lobby with a printer. i would stay there again should i go back to paris.

Room Tip: we had read that if you are on the ground floor it can get really noisy. we asked not to be one the...

The whole staff and I would like to thank you for your nice report regarding your stay with us in November. The rooms, as most rooms in Paris, are not so big, but as you wrote it, there is so much to sightsee in Paris, so easy from our central location...
We wish you an Happy New Year.
Kind regards.

Stayed for 2 nights on 6th floor. Typically small room for Paris but very cosy, nicely finished and a sizeable terrace. Great bedding and bed. Outside space - ideal if you are a smoker.

Bathroom was tiny, but good water pressure and lots of hot water. Good towels and toiletries too.

Breakfast was good quality and served in a nice cellar room.

Honestly, the best 3 star I've stayed in in Paris. Would definitely return.
Good value when booked as part of Eurostar from UK. Book it!

Room Tip: Seek 6th fllor with terrace if a smoker. Terrace would be great in Spring, Summer & Autumn.

We stayed here for 3 nights in the attic room on 6 th floor which was very cosy , breakfast was included and was lovely which included fresh croissants and boiled eggs and a variety of different things , staff were also very helpful if we needed to book a taxi or make a reservation in a resturant.
Only 3 minutes walk from the Madeleine and tube station so very handy to go shopping or sight seeing, walking distance to all the designer shops and champs Élysées area, but very pricey!!
There are lots of restaurants on the same street as this hotel all different price ranges and a very good English bar around the corner call the cricketer .
Would definitely stay here again .

Great location, nice hotel, good breakfast, excellent service......we recently stayed for 3 nights as a part of a 3 week trip in Europe. Booked online requesting a queen bed deluxe room, including breakfast. Price was almost $300. per night which seems high for a Best Western that is generally smaller than what we would find in the U.S. The room was comfortable and nicely appointed and the location is in the trendy Madeleine/Opera area, but still, the price seems high. We stayed in other Best Westerns in France and Germany but this was by far the most expensive. Probably our last hotel stay in Paris.....if we return, we will try an apartment next time.
One problem....we requested the shuttle to take us to Ch. de Gaulle Airport for our return home. Receptionist told us to allow 2 hours to make the trip. But the shuttle arrived a bit late and then made many more stops in addition to getting stuck in major traffic jam. So if you book shuttle from this hotel, you need to allow at least 3 hours in crazy Paris traffic!! We had to insist to be allowed to board as lines had already closed. Not the best way to start the day.

Room Tip: Maybe possible to pay less for a smaller room. Hotel is generally quiet. Elevator is very small and...

Thank you for your comment.
Airport Shuttle service is really a trouble in Paris because of traffic, I think we are going to stop to propose this solution to our customers but, it’s a pity, it’s cheaper than a cab…
I hope that you will consider staying with us again so that we can have another chance to provide you with a superior experience.
Best Regards

We only stayed here for 2 nights. It was charming and clean in a fantastic location. Our room was smallish, but was an attic room with automated shutters and we looked out over the rooftops of the local area, absolutely lovely. We were within walking distance of the Champs Élysées and the upmarket Opera area. Loved it and wished we had found it earlier

Room Tip: We loved our attic room on the 6th floor.

This hotel was booked by my travel agent so I not quite sure what to expect but to my great relief the stay at the Hotel Folkestone was comfortable and very enjoyable. The room was an adequate size and well furnished. The continental breakfast that was included in my booking was well presented with a good range of food.
The reception staff were very friendly and helpful.
A great place for my too short visit to Paris.
