“Great location! Good value!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2012

We choose this hotel for two reasons: one is the location, which is perfect for someone who wants easy access – on foot – to the main sites of the city; and the generally excellent reviews on Trip Advisor.  We stayed eight nights and we were not disappointed.   We found it very useful that the hotel is located almost next door to an excellent restaurant (Giallo Oro, rated #46 of 6246 restaurants in Paris by TA); a grocery store; a fruit & vegetable store; a dry cleaner and a bakery.  

Our superior double room was on the second floor facing the street.  It got a bit noisy during the day, especially with the windows open, but it was very quiet at night.  The windows are double glazed and soundproof.  The hotel is elegant and well maintained. Our room was clean and everything in it was in working order.  Wi-fi works well and is free. The staff is pleasant and helpful; continental breakfast (not included) was good and could be supplemented with eggs, cheese, yogurt and cereals for an extra charge (no fresh fruits or whole-grain bread available, unfortunately). The only issue that I can think of, and it's not serious, is that the lighting in the room is poorly planned; the lights are either too dim or too bright depending on which ones you turn on. There's no happy medium.

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Hotel de Varienne for 4 nights and i must say that I was quite pleased. Although I initially wanted to be in the latin quarter where I thought there would be a lot more "action", I actually liked the fact that I was quite close to the Musee D'Orsay, which i totally love, and in a more quiet neighborhood. The staff was really nice and quite accomodating to any questions asked. We took the train wherever we wanted to and by being a bit away gave us confidence to not have too much traffic so close. We were glad to come to the hotel after the day and just relax.

Stayed 6 nights at the hotel. Couldn't have asked for anything better. So nice to get away from the crowds every night. Everything in easy walking distance. The superior room that looked onto the quiet street was very big for Paris. The staff were very helpful. Would stay again when next in Paris

I booked Hotel de Varenne based on a review of Paris hotels on tripadvisor. It was a five night stay in mid-September, 2012. I based the choice on ratings, location, property description and price. We were very happy with the choice. The room was lovely. The location was superb, off the beaten path on a nice quiet street yet within walking distance of all the major attractions.

I highly recommend this hotel over the mega-brands in the busy, high traffic locations. There is a nice Italian restaurant just a few doors down the block (on the left as you walk out the hotel) and two small grocery stores across the street (one on the left, the other down the block on the right).

All things considered a very good value. Would certainly book this again.

We stayed for 2 nights in mid September. Our room was on the 4th floor overlooking the courtyard. Hotel is in great location and staff were friendly and helpful. There are plenty of restaurants nearby plus a small supermarket and a boulangerie. We could walk to everywhere we wanted to go quite easily. Rooms are a reasonable size and quite comfortable although our air con was quite noisy. Would stay again.

Stayed at Hotel de Varenne beginning of September for four nights. Location fantastic - walked to Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe and all around Paris without using metro once. Staff very helpful and especially lady serving breakfasts - nothing too much trouble for her. Freshly cooked omelette to be recommended. Beautiful sitting area outside hotel for breakfast, reading or just trying out the local wine. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Room with view over courtyard

We just left Paris and our 3 nights were great. Fridge is provided. The service was good and you'll get a lot of Carbs for their Continental Breakfast. The subway/Metro was a 5 minute walk. You'll wait 10 minutes if the Front Desk calls u a cab AND the taxi meter is running before they pick you up! So flag one down out front if u have the time otherwise this will add up - your taxi fare could start at 7EUR. The hotel courtyard is nice to use their wifi while drinking a beverage that can be bought from the store across the street. For all the guys....take a stroll over to War Museum and Napolean tomb to get a good break from all the Art Museums!
