“Nice Boutique Hotel”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

My husband and I just stayed at this hotel and enjoyed our stay. This hotel is in a great location, close to a metro station, and a lot of shops on Opera street. The room was a good size, and it was great to have a kitchen that included a fridge, dishwasher, microwave, stove, dishes and cutlery. The bed was large and comfortable as well.

The front desk staff spoke English which was great, but a miscommunication happened when I asked for my clothes to be washed (complimentary!) and I was told it would take two hours, but instead I didn't get the clothes back until the next day. Because of this, they gave us a box of chocolate and a complimentary breakfast at the hotel. The breakfast usually costs 20 Euros a person. We really liked the breakfast. It was a buffet and included coffee/tea/freshly squeezed juice, eggs, sausage, breads and pastries, fruits, yogurt, and cheese. It was so good that we went back the next day even though we had to pay that time.

The only negatives I can say is that the bathroom was a little small, and there are apartments or offices right across from the hotel so people can look into your room if you don't close your drapes.

Apparently this is the first Suites Hotel that Citadines has opened and they have only been open since April 2013 according to the Concierge.

We booked a Premiere Suite and were lucky to get an upgrade into a Grand Suite on arrival. Everything is all new and clean and the room had a nice Queen bed. The Grand has another room with a love seat and coffee table and there is also a small round table with two chairs that we set up the laptop and charging area for our mobiles.

The Suite has a full galley kitchen with small fridge, combo washer/dryer and even a dishwasher. There is a two element range top and range hood/exhaust. All the required utensils, kettle, toaster, coffee maker is all there too. Perfect for having morning breakfast and prepping lunch or snacks. We sampled French cuisine externally so did not make any big meals there - but you could!

Our room on the 2nd floor (labelled floor 1 since the reception is labelled floor 0) faced the Place with two lovely fountains. We were there on the cusp of heating and cooling and they had just turned off the A/C (by law apparently) and we had to open windows to let in cool air. On the lower floor it's a quick trip up.down a set of stairs but the street noise with the windows open was quite loud. A higher floor might be better for noise.

Complimentary WiFi and afternoon fresh squeezed juices and tea/coffee were provided in the main floor lounge along with daily newspapers in a few languages.

Lots of staff on hand and all were superb!

Room Tip: Higher floors might have less street noise. (only noticeable with windows open). We had #103

My travel agent found this hotel for me as part of a travel package. I was thrilled. We stayed 7 nights and loved it all. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The room was very large, with a small kitchen that allowed us to have breakfast in the room and keep wine and water in the frig. It was extremely clean and well maintained. The location was really wonderful as we could easily walk to the Louvre and enjoy the gardens at night and use it as a landmark for walking trips. It was close to a bus stop and train station. I was thrilled with the hotel and would recommend it.

I found this to be the perfect location, the room was very comfortable, the kitchen was well equipped, and the staff amazing. They helped in any way they could, even accommodating us for our religious beliefs (we are Jewish) making it easy and enjopyable to stay in Paris.

This was my first stay at this newly-renovated boutique-style hotel. The rooms are crisply decorated and large by Parisian standards. There is a fully-equipped kitchen in each room and some rooms have their own clothes washer and dryer. The only room available when I arrived, room 101, featured a beautiful panoramic view onto a fountain in a small square across the street from the hotel. This room, however also featured a lot of street noise (cars and moto's whizzing by and some kind of garbage collection at 2 AM on Rue de Montpensier with bangs, booms and beeps) that awoke me 3 times during the night. Management promptly moved me to a higher room, # 402 facing Rue de Richilieu that was perfectly quiet at night time. The breakfast buffet was good with lots of variety. The hotel has a small decently equipped gym with free weights and aerobic machines, and is right near the Louvre so perfect for runners. The hotel staff are welcoming and warm - a special thank you to Ismael for his professionalism. There are many mediocre and obscenely overpriced French restaurants in the area. I would suggest going to other arrondissements to sample French food for suppertime. Try l'Ambassade d'Auvergne on 22, rue du Grenier for really good food at a fair price. My sunset run from the hotel through the grounds of the Louvre, up along the Seine to the Eiffel Tower and back was a highlight of my stay.
In summary, this is a very good hotel in a great but noisy and touristy area. Light sleepers should request a higher room facing Rue de Richilieu. I would happily stay here again.

Room Tip: 3rd floor and up facing rue de Richilieu to avoid street and garbage collection noise.

I like Citadines very much. I stayed 2 nights in Citadines Suites Louvre Paris. The environment was good and very clean. The service and people there were really nice and polite to me. The decorations of the lobby and room were fantastic and modern! The best thing of Citadines Suites Louvre Paris was its location.

It was very near Louvre museum and the royal palace. There are many cafe and resturants around Citadines. Supermarkets are not far too. The kitchen tools were well-prepared in the room if you want to cook by yourself. If I visit Paris again, I will absolutely stay at Citadines! I highly recommend Citadines to you!

Besides, they also provided many useful services like transportation between the airport and the Citadines. The breakfast in the lobby was also delicious and very fresh!

If you are looking for a great little hotel that is in the middle of everything, clean, new and has great service then this place is it. Amazingly new and yet classic French. Service is impeccable. We used the little kitchenette as great bakeries and shops are nearby. The hotel has a cute little gym and a nice reading room. We were surprised how big the apartment was for the price. We will return here for sure.
