I stayed here from 24th to 30th September. Room 14. The hotel is central to everything. Etienne Marcel metro stop is hardly a block away. Forum des Halles shopping centre is very close too. This isn't much of a tourist spot but more of a Parisian spot. Great shops (few sex shops thrown in from time to time, but not seedy) and great cafes. Walking distance to everything. Even the Eiffel Tower is only an hour's meandering walk away.
The rooms are Parisian. Small by North American standards, but Parisians are also much "smaller" than North Americans. The hotel has a great ambiance. The staff are courteous and professional. For a sit-down breakfast, 8 euros is comparable to any local cafe but, yes, you can find cheaper if you want to look. May be lunch by the time you find it though.
I speak fluent French, so I had no communication problems. It was a wonderful trip for my wife and I. Note that some rooms have a communal shower. Number 14 was great. Overlooked the front on the first floor (2nd in US). Blackout curtains filtered out any light. Slept with window open a few nights and wasn't kept awake. It's a great location.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The timelessness of the place, the warmth of the fabrics and materials as well as the presence of wooden period furniture carefully gathered from years of going round the Clignancourt flea market, they all take part in the maintenance of a cosy atmosphere here at the Hôtel du Cygne. It is an invitation to relaxation and well-being and your host Isabelle has made sure everything has been taken care of so that you feel completely at home. What is more, this lifestyle can be enjoyed in the 20 rooms of the hotel, each one being specifically furnished with taste. Hence, every room has a unique character due to the attention paid to each one of them. For example, a writing desk in the French Empire style can be found next to a piece of polished Provençal furniture or even an Art Deco occasional table. Or you may also like how a particular bedspread actually matches curtains which are delicately adorned with ribbons or even the small bag of lavender that we put in the cupboards so that the rooms carry around the sweet smell of bygone days… Each room has a television set, a telephone and a safe for you to put your valuable items. They also have a bathroom with all the modern comfort that you will need : a shower or a bath, toilets and a washbasin standing on marble slabs that are assorted with the tiled floors. ... more less
