Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 5, 2013

Just arrived back after a fantastic stay at Legend Hotel. The room is small, but all rooms in Paris are small. We stayed in the Echo room which is on the top floor. The view was good as you can see over Paris towards the Pantheon. The shower is really good and all the usual amenities were there. I liked the bed, although Carl my husband, did not as he struggled to get comfy. We did not eat at the hotel but the food at breakfast looked good, although 15 euros pp is expensive for us Brits, instead we went to a Local Boulangerie which was 3 minutes away (turn right out of the hotel) and had a wonderful pastries and coffee for 12 euro for the 2 of us.

Staff in the hotel were very helpful and had a good command of English, which is useful as its 15 years since I did French at school.

The hotel is situated within 5 mins of 2 different Metro stations and was just a 10 min walk to the RER so we were able to get the train to and from the airport.

Overall I would strongly recommend this hotel and have only given it 4 as the beds may not be to everyone's taste (I would easily have given it 5). Next time we are in Paris will definitely check to see if the hotel is free.

Thanks to the staff for everything

Mr and Mrs Messenger

Room Tip: Stay in one of the rooms on the top floor.

Located in the middle of Rue De Renne, breakfast was beyond a dream. The bed is amazing, you just feel you are on a cloud. A bit expensive. The decor is very nice. The most important thing is the stuff - so welcoming and helpful. Loved it.

Really nice small hotel in a fantastic location. Walking distance to all the major tourist attractions, we didn't get a taxi the whole time we were in Paris which was great !

The hotel is very small and basic but has all the essential things you will need if you are not planning on spending much time based in your hotel. The rooms are small but so are many of the Grand 5* Hotels in Paris, so nothing to complain about there.

The Tempur Mattress & Pillow selection was a great addition to the room which was a nice touch, something you do not tend to get offered in the other hotels.

Some great restaurants nearby offering breakfasts for around €6-10 much better value than what we seen being offered in the hotel so therefore we had breakfast out every day. There are restaurants all around the area from €10-€120 for a 3 course meal something to cover all budgets.

Overall we enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Legend and if we visit Pairs again would have no hesitation to return as for €130 per night for a double-room it was excellent value !

We actually stayed at a very well regarded and highly priced hotel in Paris for our first two nights before checking out there and staying here at the Hotel Legend. We were very happy we did.

Hotel Legend was definitely more our "speed", being that the service was good and personal, the design of the hotel was great and modern, and overall just the little touches make this hotel one of our favorites we happened to stay at during our 3 week vacation in Europe.

We would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone. Sure, the rooms are a bit smaller, but in reality, in any large city, especially in Europe, the rooms are bound to be smaller than we're used to here in the USA. What really impressed me with the rooms was the design touches. I love modern design and this hotel had it all. We stayed in the ECHO room on the top floor, and were very happy with our decision to book it. Plus, sleeping on the Tempurpedic mattress after two weeks of traveling was definitely refreshing for our bodies.

The location is awesome, close to a few different metro shops. PLENTY of shopping nearby as well, as my girlfriend and my credit card bill will attest to. My next trip to Paris, I would love to stay here again, and probably try out another one of the specialty rooms.

Room Tip: Choose a specialty room!

Dear djtronic,

Echo is a nice choice for your stay in our hotel. Very glad that you loved it! Do you know the other Themes rooms like Narcisse or our suites Passage Secret and Dreamcatcher?

Try one of those next time, these rooms are also Tempur equiped as we are the only hotel 100% Tempur equiped!

We stayed here for 3 nights on a short break.

The hotel is a little quirky in terms of decor - we liked it - different from the standard corporate fayre. The reception area is nice and we especially liked the honesty bar, which meant we could get a hot, cold or alcoholic drink at any time of the day or night.

We had a garden room and yes, they are small, but it was so nice that for 3 nights it was not a problem. The Tempur mattresses might not be to everyone's taste and comfort - if you're used to a normal sprung mattress they are quite different, but we found them very comfortable, along with a huge range of different pillows to choose from.

I don't think the shower was working quite properly, as the output from the bar was very powerful, whilst there was just a dribble from the monsoon shower head. I think you were supposed to be able to switch between the two, but we couldn't get it to work! But again, for just three days, this wasn't really too much of a problem.

However, the plumbing generally is quite noisy and water flow from other rooms can be clearly heard. I'd also have liked a kettle and cups in the room to make a morning cuppa before going downstairs, but this wouldn't stop me from staying there again - I'd just take my own kettle with me! One other word of warning - the hotel advertises iPod/iPhone docks in the room - yes, they are there but are only for playing your music through - not for charging, so take your charger!

The staff were all extremely pleasant and helpful and spoke good English. There was an error with our bill on checkout and it was very quickly and efficiently resolved with no problems.

The hotel is in a good location, quite close to St Placide metro station, and also on a main bus route. We didn't take breakfast in the hotel, as there are plenty of cafes, boulangeries and patisseries around and about. The Luxembourg Gardens are easily walkable, as are the various restaurants, shops and markets of the St Germain area generally. Montparnasse is just at the end of the road.

Overall we quite liked this hotel - it made a very pleasant change from the 'clone' rooms found in most hotels and was a good standard overall for the price.
