“Great location... needs updating... but perfect budget hotel.”
Reviewed May 15, 2012

The location was awesome... right in the heart of la marais district.. close to the metro.. walking distance from the jewish quarter, louvre, notre dame, sienne river and the best falafel ever! Loved the location.. tons of bars and restaurants all around. The room was okay.. clean, small, good view, small shower with no curtain so it made it challenging.
It was quite at night (which i was actually nervous about based on other reviewers) and we were facing Le pick clop which was a cafe across the street. It does the trick if all you are using this place for is sight seeing and you won't spend much time there. They charge for wifi. 10 euro for your whole stay. you are better off getting it free at a local cafe. Taking a taxi from CDG to this hotel will cost around 50 euro. It would be wise to research in advance how to get there using the metro.

I stayed at this hotel for 1 night, for work. The staff was friendly and welcoming. The room was old and not too big (as most hotel rooms are in Paris). The bathroom was very poorly lit, and the shower did not work in the morning, not enough water pressure. But what really spoilt it was my neighbours, they kept me up all night talking, arguing, laughing, they just sounded very drunk. Not the hotel's fault really, but that and not being able to shower properly did not make it very good. Would I go back? Don't think so, but I must say that the staff were very friendly.

Great location, near everything, good price for your money, very friendy staff, clean. Small Hotel with big heart. Metro stations a walk away, as well as Notre Dame, Pompideu, the Sein, Hotel De Ville, restaurants, bars and shops. Will definitely stay again.

Room Tip: If you like a quiet room ask for the interior ones.

Hotel Le Compostelle is situated in the best area in town - close to all links to the best attractions and surrounded by trendy bars and restaurants. This tends to make for a noiser stay as there is always something going on outside - but i loved that about the area. The rooms were fair and what you'd expect from a stay in paris on budget, the same goes for the shower room. The only complaint i would have is the elevator which i chose not to travel by and even though the reception staff were generally cold, you grew to understand their ways and accepted it was just the french way and the language barrier. Our room was clean and i absolutely loved the big french window that we hung out, people watching on the streets below.

You can't go wrong with this place. The location is brilliant, close to all amenities and the transport links are excellent, Saint-Paul or Hotel-de-Ville metro stations are only about 300m walk away and it only costs €1.70 to travel to all Central Paris locations (Zone 1). The Notre Dame cathedral is only 5 minutes walk away and The Louvre 15 minutes away. There is also a BoatBus just down the road linking all the major attractions which you can hop on and off all day for €13, very relaxing and you get to avoid the hustle and bustle of the very busy Metro. The area is bustling with Cafes, shops and bars and the hotel is just located behind the busy Rue de Rivoli. The area is busy until the early hours of the morning but the rooms were quiet enough to have a decent nights sleep. The hotel and the rooms were very clean. The staff were very helpful and spoke decent English. The only negative was the size of the rooms but it wasn't really an issue. What more do you want from a reasonably priced hotel at a prime location! Would definitely stay there again.

My second visit to this hotel. Visited the weekend of 4th November 2011.

This hotel is located in the Le Marais area which for those that way inclined is the predominently gay area of Paris, also home to the Jewish contignent of Paris and a eye watering number of cafes, shops, bars and patisseries.

Le Compostelle isnt a huge hotel so don't expect huge brand name luxuries. That being said the hotel is lovely. The staff on reception have a decent grasp of english, certainly enough to get by but i'm sure they appreciate the odd person who can throw out a few words in french.

The rooms are adequate - not bad, not great but given i was in there for around 8hrs per day during which i was asleep it didnt concern me. The beds were comfortable, there was a bath and shower and a tv so you can try to follow french TV. Our room was round the back of the hotel as it was last time so i can't comment on the noise, however it is on a busy street so this is to be expected.

In terms of location and tourism - the hotel is around a 10 min walk from both The Lourve and Notre Dame and there is a Metro Station a short walk from the hotel (St Pauls). What I would say is please don't be lazy and get the Metro around Paris, get out and walk - its SUCH a gorgeous city it needs to be taken in as you walk along the river.

Overall, a nice little hotel, excellent location and reasonably priced too. If and when I return to Paris I know where i'll be staying.

Room Tip: Rooms at the rear of the hotel are quieter

This hotel is centrally located in the Marais. The hotel staff is English speaking and efficient. They helped arrange our early-morning taxi pickup to the airport. The hotel room was a bit outdated but had all the necessities, with the exception of air-conditioning. A nice touch was the balcony overlooking the busy-street below...so Parisian! Yet, since it was warm and with no AC we had to leave the french doors open at night to keep cool and that meant having the intrusive street noises. Luckily, I had a good pair of earplugs, good for me, not so good for my partner.

The hotel is in a great location, just a short walk to the Notre Dame cathedral, museums, etc.

It's rates are a good deal, but don't expect luxury, AC or complete quiet.
