Great location the front desk was fabulous and Very helpful. Rooms were very small and hair dryer didn't work. Area was quiet and beds were comfortable. overall was great. Right next to Museum d'Orsay metro stop. One block from the river. I would recommend this hotel.

Excellent hotel in great location. Superb, friendly, and professional staff. Front desk responsive in every way. Manager even dashed to store to get my wife a new converter when hers failed. After passport stolen guys at desk helped with US embassy contacts and forms. Hotel clean and not on noisy busy street. Good restaurant and bistro recommendations from desk. Classic size room large enough but lacked a dresser for folded clothes. Continental breakfast, which was included in our package, was tremendous with warm and cold selections. I would return and also highly recommend to anyone. Desk staff, especially Claire and R

The front desk was outstanding - a great welcome, and they helped me print off some documents. The hotel felt like a family. I had the basic room which was small, and knew that, but it was still quite expensive.

You can't beat this hotel for the location and convenience. It is steps away from the Seine and we easily walked to many of the top tourist attractions such as the Louvre, Notre Dame, Arc de Triomphe, and Saint Germain shops and cafes. Part of the charm of Paris is the ability to walk anywhere, but note that the hotel is also very close to a metro stop. We were also VERY pleasantly surprised as the spaciousness of our room. We had asked for a cot for our son, and even with this additional bed, we had plenty of walking space in the room. That is quite unusual for a Parisian hotel room which can often be the size of a small closet! We loved the convenience of buying our museum passes from the front desk (with no additional fee), and the ease at which they set up our cab ride back to Charles de Gaulle at the end of our stay. Tip: just a short walk away, on 18 Rue de Bac, is Eric Kayser, an excellent boulangerie to enjoy breakfast. You will not be disappointed!

Visited Paris in June and stayed here. Wonderful Hotel, close to the Musee D'Orsay and the Seine. We were able to walk to most places. The Hotel is quaint, with lovely rooms and the staff at the front desk were wonderful. We were able to walk to the Metro and to catch a cab when needed. Would highly recommend this Hotel for your stay in Paris.

We really appreciated this hotel for our first stay in Paris (after 20 years). After much research, we settled on Hotel D'Orsay as the one for us, with a degree of trepidation that we didn't experience the various negative comments from prior people (which seem to apply to all hotels).

We arrived early in the morning, and were pleasantly surprised to be told that they had a room ready for us; and even more surprised to find out that we had been upgraded.

Whilst the reception area was being renovated, it wasn't a problem; and in fact it was more than up for by the very pleasant and helpful front desk staff.

The room was a delight - sizeable; very clean; and most importantly very quiet.

And whilst we only had breakfast there on the last morning, it was great - in fact we regretted not eating there more often.

As for the site - it was perfect for exploring Paris. Two metro stations were very close by; although we walked everywhere, as the hotel is situated perfectly for walking to most of the highlights of central Paris.

I really enjoyed my stay here. The location is one of the best spots to be in. You are a block away from the Musee d' Orsay, the River Seine. Right across the river is the Louvre & Tuileries Gardens. In the area of the hotel there are nice places to eat and shopping. The metro is right up the street.Just a few blocks away is Blvd St Germain the hotspot for shops and restaurant's and Patisseiie Grosselin 258 Boulevard Saint-Germain. This amazing pastry shop has some of the best flavored stuffed and sugar topped donuts, breads, desserts and much more!You are also so close to all the major sights in the 1st. The room was clean and the bathroom was nice and newly re-done. The hotel at this time under renovation and I am sure it will be nice when done. The breakfast buffet seemed nice and popular in the morning. I like to go out and buy some treats while the wife and kids are getting up since I am an early riser. This is a great hotel for great value. Clean and well located.
