Hotel le Notre Dame

Reviewed November 25, 2013

First we were put in a room on the sixth floor where I could not stand straight in about 70% of the room due to the slant ceiling.
When complaining next day the room was changed to an other one but no compensation was offered.
Looks cosy on the pictures but in fact is run-down, dirty and cramped. Location is great of course, but due to poor isolation, very loud on an all-day-and-night-busy street. In fact you feel the tube shaking the walls.

Way overpriced.

We stayed here for a week and loved it. We had a direct view of Notre Dame Cathedral. The location is fabulous for either walking or taking the subway or RER. The rooms are extremely -- no, extraordinarily -- clean. And we liked the rather bright Christian Lacroix interiors.

This is not a full service hotel, but every time we asked someone for something, they were extremely friendly and helpful. The atmosphere could not have been nicer.

Here's an interesting note. When we left Hotel Notre Dame, we went to Bordeaux, and when we returned to Paris, we stayed at a 5-star hotel near the Arc de Triomphe. The building there was certainly more lavish than Notre Dame. But the service wasn't. It was sloppy, confused, and constantly annoying.

To sum up, we decided that our vacation spent at Hotel Notre Dame was far more enjoyable than at the 5-star hotel. We would definitely return to Notre Dame without question. We highly recommend it.

Looking out your window to a view of Notre Dame is pretty memorable. The rooms were cozy, on the smallish side (but most rooms in Paris are). We were worried about noise from the street below but that wasn't a problem. However, you hear a lot from the rooms beside and above you. I forgot my earplugs that I normally travel with and had a bit of trouble sleeping. With the earplugs though it would have been fine. The thing I love about this hotel though is the service. So friendly accommodating and helpful, that has not been our experience in general in Paris so it was refreshing. The bar in the lobby area is a nice place to unwind and the location can't be beat. Easy to get to from CDG and within walking distance of so many things. I'd recommend it to others. Walk down to La Tournebievre for dinner, you won't be disappointed!

The location of the hotel was amazing, you couldn't want for more than a view of the Notre Dame Cathedral 24/7. The rooms are small, which is expected of Paris, but the biggest disappointment was the bathroom. There was no shower! Only a tub with a hand held hose. Maybe its just a western thing to have showers in bathrooms, but when staying there for 4 nights it ended up being a bit of an inconvenience (try washing your hair with 1 hand kind of thing). They did have staff 24 hours a day which is useful in a city that lives at night. I also thought for the price we payed they would have included a breakfast, but that was an additional charge also.

Room Tip: Get a view of Notre Dame, you won't regret it.

I have just finished a three night stay Hotel le Notre Dame and strongly recommend it as a property if your aim is to be in the heart of Paris to enjoy all it has to offer. The location of this Hotel is magical, within a stone's throw of Notre Dame Cathedral complete with an unobstructed view of the Cathedral from most of the rooms. The main floor of this boutique hotel is actually on the second level above the street, where the reception desk is located along with a small bar and a sitting area/dining room where you will enjoy their optional breakfast--- a bargain at 10 euros. Just imagine sitting down to a breakfast of two large croissants and fresh baguette with butter and jams while gazing directly at the Seine River and the Notre Dame cathedral just beyond. Not to mention their superb coffee served along with a pitcher of hot milk.

Although on a very busy corner, with the convenience of a metro stop across the street, the rooms are surprisingly insulated from traffic noise because of the high quality double glazed windows. I opted to stay in one of the few interior rooms without a view of the street. True to its name, the Hotel owners did not want me to lack a connection to its namesake Cathedral across the street, so they have installed a second giant flat screen in the room that plays a real-time video of the Notre Dame. Talk about attention to details and making the experience of each and every guest memorable! A smaller wholly adequate flat screen TV is used to broadcast cable channels.

The property is extremely well kept and seems very new. Its interior design is incredible, very fanciful with lots of patterns, textures and colors, that all work to create a collage of sensual opulence. Modern furnishings and plumbing are rare in Paris hotels but here you will partake in a total experience.

The staff were exceptional and totally bilingual so you could practice your french or be lazy and allow them to converse in english. I met three different reception staff and they were all very friendly and helpful. Julie was especially a delight.

Just remember this Hotel for your next trip to Paris. Its location cannot be beat: one block from all the restaurants of Latin Quarter, St Germaine minutes away on foot, the Marais district across the Seine, the Petit Pont bridge outside the front door of the Hotel, walk to the Louvre in 20 minutes,
or what ever else takes your fancy. Paris is indeed the best city in the world and Hotel Le Notre Dame makes it that much easier to enjoy.

Room Tip: Remember this hotel is in central Paris and the rooms are going to be compact by our standards.

We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights and the room, the staff and the location were all top class. Close to Notre Dame and a miriad of wonderful restaurants. Close to a taxi rank and opposite the rail network. Hop on bus stop directly opposite also.
The view of Notre Dame cathedral and the Seine was to die for.
Would recommend to anyone and would certainly return in the future.

Location, Location! Usually that's enough. LARGE room always a surprise in Paris. Room 8 on the 4th floor. What a view. A word about the staff, WONDERFUL. Most of the restaurants on the small streets behind the hotel are average at best. The falafal shop right behind the hotel was great. Patrick gave us some good restaurants not far from the hotel. We did not have breakfast in the hotel. Preferred a different cafe each morning.
