“Very pleased with one minor quibble”
Reviewed March 24, 2014 via mobile

As others have said, well located overall just a few blocks off the beaten path. We had an executive twin room, bed very comfortable, room of good size, and bathroom far larger than most in Paris. We had no needs from the staff but they were very pleasent. As to the quibble, Paris was having a warm snap this spring, and air conditioner turned off until summer so room was a bit stuffy and warm and we couldn't turn on air and didn't want to open window and have street noise, which the closed window effectively filtered out. Would stay there again.

Stayed May 2013, traveled with friends

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights. The hotel is in a fantastic location just around the corner from Les Invalides and the Rodin Museum. The Place de la Concorde, Tuileries, Louvre and Champs Élysées are also a short walk away. The Varenne metro is around the corner (4 minutes on foot with large suitcases!) and from here you can easily get to all the main places that you might want to visit.

The hotel has a lovely courtyard entrance leading into a small reception area which doubles up as the breakfast area on a morning. Breakfast is served from 7am till midday, perfect for those lazy mornings. The decor is classical and very well presented which continues into the bedrooms. We stayed in room 15 which was a twin room. The room had all the luxuries you would expect at a high class hotel; bathrobes, slippers, coffee machine, safe, mini-bar etc. There is a lift to reach the upper floors albeit a small one.

We had breakfast one morning and both chose the standard continental which was a lovely selection of bread, croissants, pain au chocolat and jams etc. We both opted for hot chocolate which was delicious and came in a jug and filled our cups about three times!! The breakfast was good value and there were other options on the menu if you didn't fancy the continental.

I know I've mentioned this already but the hotel really is in a central location. There is the access to the usual sites as I mentioned before and one night we had a meal at the nice area of St Germain des Pres and walked back to the hotel rather than get the metro to work of our meal.

The streets around the hotel are quiet enough that you can get a good nights sleep but have enough cafés, restaurants and shops so that you don't have to go to far.

We managed to book this on a special price deal which made the price €179 and worth every penny. Even at the full price the hotel would be good value and we will definitely be returning.

A little stop in Paris during 3 days and we decided to stay at the Varenne.
This has been a great moment. We had a wonderful weather and the hotel was perfect.
Our room was extremely comfortable and nicely decorated.
The staff is friendly. Thanks to Beatrix and Stephane for their kindness.
The area is upscale with embassies, museums and the national assembly.
We won' t hesitate to return.

This is a very nice boutique hotel located in an upscale part of the City, with an amazing little garden.
The staff is very helpful and professional, Beatrix and Stephane did their best to give directions and tips for visits and restaurants. They proposed to reserve a taxi to go back to the airport and to print our boarding pass !
Our room was of good size and extremely comfortable with a convenient coffe machine and super comfy bed.
The location right next to Rodin museum is perfect.
We had a very good dinner at a reasonable price "chez Auguste" on rue de Bourgogne.
We hope to go back pretty soon.

A lovely hotel within 2 blocks of the Invalides and Musee L'Armee. Small but very nice hotel rooms with nice breakfast. The hotel is conveniently situated on the same block as an ATM, restaurants, fruit market and boulangerie. The hotel has a lovely courtyard to enjoy whatever goodies you've purchased in the neighborhood. Metro stops are within easy walking distance (10-15 min).

Unfortunately our stay was too short to enjoy correctly the perfect comfort of this nice little hotel.
Excellent service, friendly staff and very comfortable room.
The location is ths best, close to Invalides and Rodin museum.
We'll be back for more soon

Located just a few blocks from the Assamble National and within 15 - 20 min walking distance from the Eiffel tower and Grand Boulevards of the city. Surprisingly quiet area in the evenings but a number of reasonable restaurants close be.

Clean, well kept hotel. Tourist category, no luxury but fine. Very helpful staff at the reception. Basic continental breakfast available, but no restaurant service (not really needed, see above).

Room Tip: At least rooms facing the court yard are quiet.
