Firstly, yes this hotel is not cheap but its worth the price and more. My wife and I stayed here for four nights on our honeymoon. It was amazing! The location is incredible, the hotel is absolutely beautiful everywhere.

When we walked in we were so happy with our choice. We had never been to Paris and the location made our trip so much better and less stressful. No standing at the reception desk here. You sit down and they treat you so well. Perfect english from everyone we spoke to. Grab some of the fresh caramels they have there, they are to die for.

When we got to our room, we were shocked at the all the stuff it had. The staff left us a beautiful note for being on our honeymoon with a box of amazing chocolates. A touch that went above and beyond. The colour/design of the room was very nice and calming. I couldn't believe the kitchenette either but we didn't make much use of it.

I have and will continue to recommend this hotel to family and friends.

Paris is a loud city but we still slept well.

We stayed at this wonderful hotel between 4 and 8 November 2013 for my wife's 30th birthday.

It is in a great location, being only minutes from both the Louvre, Opera and Galleries Lafayette. Upon arrival, we were warmly welcomed by Francois who was of great assistance to us throughout our stay by offering tips, directions, restaurant recommendations and reservations. Another gentleman on reception (with blonde hair and glasses) was equally helpful and was a pleasure to speak to.

Our room was immaculately clean and was very stylishly decorated. On my wife's birthday the head of housekeeping personally delivered a box of chocolates and handwritten card to mark the occasion which was a very thoughtful touch.

We have stayed in many five star hotels around the world and this was, by a considerable margin, the best hotel we have stayed in.

We would, without hesitation, recommend this hotel to anyone and cant wait to return to explore more of Paris!

We were very satisfied with Citadines as our choice of hotel in Paris and recommend it to other couples.
The location is ideal. We stayed in a junior suite with high ceilings, French doors opening onto a small balcony that overlooked a typical Paris intersection, trees, buildings, rooftops.
The room decor is in the typical Parisienne style.
Breakfast is optional. We stayed for breakfast on one morning and it was good value and delicious.

The hotel itself is in a great location, in the city centre with a beautiful view on musee du Louvre .
The common parts are elegant, in a luxurious Parisian style.
The suite is charming and spacious, every detail had been taken care of. Had the chance to see the Parisian roofs from the bath tub in the room.. A unique experience!
The breakfast is rich and a large range of choice is available, the breakfast room is quiet and
nicely decorated.

Our first trip to Paris didn't disappoint because of our wonderful experience with the Citadines Louvre. Firstly i emailed a request for a Airport transfer, it was arranged immediately and worked like clockwork, check in was informative and friendly, our room was beyond our expectations we booked a Premiere Suite, being the cheaper option i thought it would be rather small, but was spacious, large bed,great amenities,everything you needed was there plus the bonus of a washing machine/dryer after travelling and staying in some inferior hotels, this was a welcome piece of luxury. Did not have breakfast at the hotel, but bought lovely fresh food for our fridge and got great use of the nespresso machine. Didnt have a problem with noise, i was concerned after reading a previous review because we were on the first floor, but all good. We found that the apartment was in an excellent location and would definitely recommend and cant wait to return.

Citadines Suites is a must place to stay if you are planning to visit Paris. Recently renovated , it is the new "Jewel of the city". My husband and I were there from September 26 to October 10, 2013. All of the conveniences to insure a delightful stay were provided. The suites are luxurious and beautiful with the most attention paid to detail and amenities that I have ever experienced. There are separate rooms for the bath and toilet. The addition of a washer/dryer to a beautifully appointed, fully equipped kitchen was a huge plus(I will definitely will pack even less for our next visit and we loved the Nespresso fresh coffee every morning). Numerous L'Occitane travel size necessities in case you forgot something, which I did of course. The lovely and very comfortable queen size bed was heavenly. I did not long for my bed at home once. Our Suite had two set of French doors welcoming you to a balcony with a table and chairs if you would prefer to have your breakfast coffee or a pre dinner glass of wine outside. We have stayed in different areas of Paris and we think this location is simply the best. There are so many places you can walk to. The Louvre Musee, the Opera, the Comedie Francaise for entertainment and Printemps, Galleries Lafayette, the Tuileries and St. Honore` offer unbelievable shopping experiences, and numerous dining possibilities. Metro and Taxi access is very nearby, or right outside the door if the staff calls the taxi for you. The Staff of Citadines Suites are exceptional. Everyone we met continuously exceeded our expectations. My husband and I are senior citizens and the help and comfort provided by our surroundings and the staff at Citadines Suites was a wonderful experience. The manager and all of the staff treated us as if we were family and like family they all helped us to our taxi to see us off when we had to leave. If we get to return to Paris we will come back to Citadines Suites Louvre.
