Nice boutique hotel close to major attractions. Friendly helpful staff. Very close to best museum in Paris (Musee d'orsay). Only downside - rooms are quite small and hard to spead out suitcases, but that's typical of Paris.
- Free Wifi
Beautiful large, well appointed rooms, well located. Staff were exceptional!! The staff really were what set this hotel apart. They were all very helpful and a few really went the extra mile to make our stay memorable. The hotel is very central. Walking distance from lots of must see things, including Musee D'Orsay, Tuileries, Musee de L'Orangerie, Musee Louvre, the Loire. Not that many restaurants within walking distance though. We took two rooms, a twin and a club, one was upgraded. Both were beautiful and large by Paris standards. The passionfruit flower embroidered pattern on the curtains in Room 42 were out of the ordinary. Top location. Great experience. Recommend it wholeheartedly.
We stayed here for four nights in June. The location is central for both city/river walks and access to the metro. Our room was a good size, very clean and serviced daily. A fine hotel as you would expect for the price so what made it great? The front desk staff with whom we came in contact were excellent. They provided answers to all our questions and helped us plan itineraries and made some bookings for us. Although they spoke good English they were patient and helpful as we wished to practise our French when talking to them. Special thanks to Roxane and Jerome!
We would have appreciated a continental breakfast being included in the price.

Our room was very small and bare. The room was clean, the bed was comfy but narrow, the bath room linen was very good and the water was hot. The staff were lovely and very helpful. The breakfast was good.
I've now stayed at both the Hotel d'Orsay (in May) and the Hotel de Varenne (two years ago), both in the 7th district, close to the d'Orsay Museum. As they are in the same area and similar in many respects, I thought a comparison might be useful.
Although I know that the Hotel de Varenne is a great favorite with tripadvisor reviewers (and indeed it is a good hotel for the price), I do think the Hotel d'Orsay is considerably nicer. Both are small hotels with small rooms. But the decor, set-up, and bathrooms are better in general at the d'Orsay (with the exception of the Club Room), and its staff and general welcome are exceptional. The hotel manager made a point of asking about our stay and remaining with us until our taxi arrived, for example. Breakfast was also much better at the d'Orsay.
I haven't done a comparison of prices, though I suspect the d'Orsay is more expensive. But it's worth it.
I'm not sure whether it should have a four or five star rating but it is a very nice hotel--not swish but comfortable. The staff were extremely helpful and for semi-trogdolytes such as us who don't carry a laptop or smartphone, there is a free computer with internet connection in the lobby. The room we had was fairly small but quite comfortable. The shower was good. Its real value is the location, close to most sights, the metro and several very useful bus lines. (We wanted to go to the Musee Marmottan not served by a metro station and an expensive taxi ride away, but a bus near the hotel goes close to the museum--it also resulted in a good tour of the posh 16th arrondissement).
