“Elegant, Parisian Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

My husband and I enjoyed our 5 day stay at Hotel de la Bretonnerie. The room was stylish and old worldly designed with a four poster bed, exposed wooden beams on the ceiling, and a french window looking out to the streets of Marais :). The location is perfect in the middle of Marais and about a 10min walk to the metro stops. The bathroom was uber clean with a tub and nice bath products too. The room and the bathroom were of a good size as compared to other hotels. The staff r helpful. The only drawback was the street noise from some construction close by, thats if you left the window open. Other than that, nothing to complain, the free wifi works brilliantly. I would recommend this hotel for a romantic weekend or otherwise :)!!!

I have traveled many times from Boston to Paris, but since I have found this hotel, I have never stayed anywhere else. So quaint, so Parisian, and the location/price cannot be beat! My fiancee loves it too!

I used to live in the Marais and discovered this hotel by chance when looking for a place to host visiting friends near my apartment. I've subsequently stayed there myself and will do so again. The location right in the heart of the Marais can't be beat. The multi-lingual staff is extremely friendly. The chambres de charme are the ones to get. The rooms are small but comfortable, some with timbered ceilings, and all with en suite bathrooms, which is always a plus. I've never had breakfast here, but there are great cafes in the neighborhood and even a Starbucks if you're inclined that way. There are glitzier boutique hotels in the neighborhood, but this one rocks it for value. Rue St. Croix de la Bretonnerie is not a quiet street on weekend evenings but you don't stay in the Marais for quiet. Sunday through Thursday it is more peaceful.

Which weighs more, a ton of fun and laughter or a ton of aggravation…you decide.

We guests at the Hotel Bretonnire are told that the reason there is no AC is out of concern for the environment. Okay...that's a nice thought. And, although they don’t advertise it, from the quality of the towels, one suspects a gesture of good will trade with North Korea. No labels, but the towels have that certain North Korean quality. Finally, as Monty Python might put it, this hotel has the semaphore version of the internet.

Perhaps I am harsh but there are no shower enclosure at all in the tub and room temperature "control" of Victorian vintage is a bit of an issue. Overheated room? Open the window. That’s fine in early May but when the crawling, flying things of summer arrive, it may not be the quaint “old fashioned” option it is right now. Although our room (15) was quiet, other guests told us street noise in this boisterous, gay area, was an issue.

On the plus side, I am a big fan of competent staff and the ton of fun and laughter in this case is Karen. She is competent, intelligent, tri-lingual and really very funny. The night clerk was also both helpful and possessed of a mischievous sense of humor.

Finally, the breakfast was (as usual) absurdly overpriced, but more generous in some ways (infinite coffee) and featured nutella...a big plus.

My wife and I would not return to this hotel for itself, yet…if Karen were to be there…

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the back to avoid street noise.

The staff at this hotel were friendly and very helpful.

If you want to stay in a fun area of Paris then this is the place to stay.

Always love how the breakfast rooms are in the bowels of the buildings with wonderful stone arches and a pleasant European style breakfast.

Be prepared for a few noises at night. This time it was the constant beeping car horn one night and the scream the next. All part of the experience.

This was my second stay at de la Bretonnerie, and I found it as pleasant as I did ten years ago. In comparison with other Paris hotels at this price, the Bretonnerie is a delight. First, the location is great: from the airport, you just need to take the RER to the Chatelet des Halles exit, locate the Pompidou, and walk three short blocks. The lobby is colorful and inviting, complete with a borrowing library, comfortable seating, and a computer. The staff (most who speak English) are generally warm and helpful, the rooms quirky but comfortable---and QUIET. I chose to take breakfast in the "cave" each morning ( small buffet with fresh orange juice), but there are numerous cafes and coffee shops (including Starbucks) right around the corner. Again, a great location: 5 minute walk to Notre Damne, 30 minute walk to Orsay and the Tuilleries---and, of course, just the wonderful Marais itself.

We were slightly dismayed that our junior suite was in fact a triple room. Having said that, the room was quite spacious, and very quiet, apart from my snores, according to my daughter. Despite unseasonable cold, and having all the radiators off, we were rather hot. The breakfasts are great for France, and very quirky and atmospheric in the cave. The hotel is elegantly furnished and reception is very friendly.
The Marais is fascinating and, if I ever come to Paris again (this is my 7th trip) I will ignore the big sites and concentrate on knowing an area such as this really well. The Place des Vosges well worth seeing.
I wish this hotel, in fact all hotels followed the UK tradition of tea and coffee in the room. It is more than just a hot drink: gives you a feeling of home
