The staff was very friendly and helpful throughout our weekend stay in Paris. The hotel room/suite was lovely. Air conditioned, nice sized bathroom, good/prompt room service. Centrally located with the Le Seine & Notre Dame in plain view from hotel window....would absolutely stay here again.

Le Notre Dame is well placed with rooms looking out over the Notre Dame Cathedral. It is right next to an RER station with trains to CDg every 15 minutes. The "Batobus" hop on, hop off river boats stop nearby, allowing easy travel up and down the river.

The rooms are decorated in a quirky/arty style, and are very clean, though a little on the smalle side. Breaakfast is simple, but if you are looking for something more extensive, there are streetside cafe's right next door who serev breakfast.

Recommended, and will probably be back.

I stayed here some months back for 9 days with my mother and sister. While in Paris both my mother and sister became ill and had to be hospitalized. Simona and her staff were INCREDIBLY helpful. She and her team made all arrangements and translated with doctors and ambulance drivers for me. I was impressed with (and very grateful for) the thoughtful, caring and competent staff that went above and beyond to help my family. I look forward to returning to Hotel le Notre Dame (and to my wonderful attic room with the loft bed) under less stressful circumstances.

Our room faced the cathedral and we were very happy to be so conveniently located to the center of the city, and to the Metro/RER. The hotel is small, the rooms are tiny and there is no elevator to get to the reception desk so be prepared for that. We felt that was a reasonable compromise for the well-appointed rooms and lovely, warm attitude of the staff. If you choose a room facing the cathedral, keep in mind that it is a very busy part of the city and there is street noise. Nonetheless, we would go back today if we could!

Room Tip: consider getting a view vs getting a quieter night sleep. The view is spectacular, though, and for...

This hotel is located in the heart of Paris! It's close to the metro and most landmarks in Paris. This hotel is very expensive, but the sights are worth it, (my room overlooked the Seine, Notre Dame, and more). I like to have refrigerators in rooms when I travel....this hotel does not have refrigerators nor cable, which was a big let down. But as I mentioned, great hotel for its central location!

We stayed at HND a few weeks ago. Our decision was based upon Tripadvisor reviews. Which, for the first time, has left me perplexed. The hotel was not what we expected. We were looking for something memorable, convenient and reasonably priced. The hotel definitely fit the bill for those three things. We had a beautiful view of Notre Dame, the hotel is truly central to everything and the price worked with our budget. But there is a "but" to this review. Although we knew the hotel was literally across the street from Notre Dame, we had no idea how busy the street the hotel was on would be. We're talking crazy busy. There was so much street noise and it lasted until four in the morning. That combined with our jet lag left us extremely frustrated and disappointed. Hotel's fault? No, I suppose. But perhaps putting in different windows would help minimize the noise level. Having stayed in many hotels in NYC, we never encountered the noise that we did on those two nights. Fortunately, we were able to switch rooms. I was never so happy to have a view of concrete! We finally slept :)
As far as the rest of the hotel, the decor is definitely funky and Parisian but also worn. I was afraid to think of how dirty the carpet was in the room. But, everything else was clean....bedding, towels, etc. Another thing that wasnt pleasant was the fact that the entrance to the hotel is sandwiched between souvenir shops. You barely know it's a hotel. You walk straight into a staircase (that you need to carry your luggage up) that takes you up to the "lobby". Nothing grand or inviting about that either. You really don't feel pampered from the get go.
My final "but". If you're looking for location, and the things I've mentioned don't bother you, then this is a great hotel. You are close to many cafes and restaurants, great neighborhoods and the metro is right across the street. But, I would not stay here again in the future.

Room Tip: Don't choose a room facing Notre Dame unless you're a heavy sleeper.

We decided to stay here due to the location with the RER and Metro lines all being very close and convenient for getting in and out of Paris and also due to its proximity to St Michel where we love wondering around and choosing a restaurant (not too mention the worlds best chocolate shop!) . We booked a river view room which cost a bit more but worth it for the view we had of Notre Dame and the River Seine! At first the hotel is a little hard to find but the cafe on the corner is a good indication you are there - the entrance unfortunately means 20 or so stairs to lug your suitcase up - but from there you have the typical one person one bag elevator that many of the old buildings were fitted with!
Staff were wonderful, very helpful and put themselves out of the misery of us trying to speak French and spoke English to us! They are very knowledgeable and quick to assist with any directions or information you need including booking taxis etc
The room was quite quirky, but the view was amazing... could have spent my time laying on the bed watching the changing light on Notre Dame all day. Space was limited but for a Paris, the room was a good size and comfortably took our two suitcases with room to move around. Wardrobe space limited - but you make do. Room was very clean and well serviced each day.
We only ate breakfast here on our last day and it was great - very French - and cheaper than the cafes on the street.
Highly recommend - great location - will be back!

Room Tip: If you are not a good sleeper and easily distracted by noise - might be best to ask for a room at th...
