The Victoria Palace Hotel is where you want to stay in Paris. The 6th arrondissement location in the Left Bank is a block away from the Metro Line from the Gare du Nord where the Eurostar terminates, and the Gare Monparnasse (with its short train ride to lovely Chartres) with its confluence of many Metro Lines is just almost as close. The hotel's location is quiet, the staff is very friendly, and the neighborhood is definitely not touristy. The somewhat costly "Junior Suite" double room was spacious, clean, and very well maintained. Nothing bad to say about the hotel once you get used to the over the top French decor. The bedroom's wallpaper doesn't tend to keep you up at night as long as you turn the lights off and you've had a few glasses or wine in the similarly decorated very comfortable bar's lounge.

We stayed for three nights in the beautiful Hotel Victoria Palace in the 6 adronessment in paris. It was close enough to take the subway or bus to any main attraction, yet off a small street which made it a quiet respite from the busy and noisy pace of Paris. Our room was lovely - very French and the lobby was equally beautiful. We celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary while we were there and they gave us complimentary champagne...perfect! Staff was friendly and helpfu; and rooms were large and very clean. I would highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Get to the breakfast buffet earlier to avoid the crowds. Food was great.

This was our second time to Victoria Palace, an elegant hotel with old world charm and modern conveniences--Wi-fi internet connections, satellite tv, air conditioning, mini bar etc. The rooms had lovely furnishings and were very comfortable and quiet. The cloth covered walls are a nice touch. The location is great, in the heart of the Left Bank, le quartier du Cherche-Midi, near Saint -Germain-des-Pres, easy to get around to all the sights by bus, metro or walking. But there is plenty to see and do right in the area, lots of nice restaurants and cafes, large stores and small, wonderful boutiques & elegant designers, bookstores, antiques, great boulevards and people watching! The lovely Luxembourg gardens are nearby--we enjoyed the quiet neighborhood surrounding the gardens.
The staff are superb, from the door captain to the front desk concierge staff. Everyone is polite, courteous, accommodating, endlessly patient with my French, and always upbeat with a smile and charm that makes you feel truly welcome. The Bell Captain even remembered us from 4 years previous!
The breadth of the breakfast buffet is incredible--cheeses, fruits, breads, meats, eggs, juices and cereal. The waitstaff are polite and helpful.
We love this hotel and will come again. We highly recommend it.

Room Tip: We had a suite the first time--it was worth the extra money.

We have just returned recently from this lovely hotel.

It was spotless, staff were very helpful and the breakfast was fine

We had a lovely room 607 at the front with two balconies. The only problem was the noise but that's not the hotel's fault and we were staying in a city.

I think we were were the only Britsh there which we did not mind but some people might.

Anyway we loved it and would recommend it

This vacation consisted of Barcelona, Paris, and London. This hotel was the best of the three. Large room, good sized bathroom, attentive service, great location. Buffet service is your typical breakfast buffet, king bed is two twins put together. The lady that checked us in was super nice, turn down service with chocolate :D

We had a wonderful time in Paris and at this hotel. Tucked away right off the streets, just enough to shelter you from the outside noise. Café and mini-market on the corner, shops and metro all within a block…really a great location topped off with being a great hotel. We will be coming back, it is a jewel.

PROS: Great service all around! Concierge helped us with which shows to attend, booked us a dinner at a long waitlist restaurant with ease (was very special as it was the location of me receiving a marriage proposal!). Continental breakfast is delicious, varied with choices and fresh selection. The front desk even exchanged currency for us and directed us to great tips to take in the sites and many recommendations. Rooms are spacious, especially for European standards and are well kept and clean. Beds are comfy, rooms quiet, balcony offers great views (especially from up top) and bathrooms are fantastic with large tubs. It really makes you appreciate good service as it’s so much harder to find these days.

CONS: None I can think of. We really loved this place and have recommended it to others.

This Hotel is certainly not what it first seems. Down a backstreet and from the outside pretty ordinary however, that impression changes as you enter the foyer - wow! The decor is great, warm, chintzy, quirky but immaculate.
The Staff are SO helpful and friendly and David in the bar is excellent company!
The rooms are sensational, again great decor, separate bathroom to the toilet. The bathroom is fabulous with great toiletries. Bed was so, so in its comfort levele. Perhaps investing in mattress toppers would be a good idea.
Thank you to all - it was a beautiful stay in Paris and we would definitely stay again
