“Excellent for a city break”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2014

Myself and my girlfriend very much enjoyed our stay. The hotel staff were very friendly especially the lady on reception who was more than happy to help with restaurant suggestions and directions.

The wifi connection was fantastic and definitely a plus.

The location is great for access to central tourist destinations. The smaller local met station Saint-Placide is very handy for access to Notre Dame and Louvre. The larger station which is just as close, Montparnasse has several lines for access to Eiffel Tower and other areas.

There are many small restaurants close by that are all very well priced.

We stayed at this hotel after doing extensive research on Paris hotels in November. My main priorities were location, budget, and cleanliness. We traveled as a couple and it being our first time in Paris together, we wanted a unique romantic experience.
This hotel is lovely. It is conveniently located on a large shopping street and is accessible by subway.
The rooms are adorable. It was such a pleasant surprise to walk into the bedroom and have rose petals set on it. The beds were Temperpedic. I personally don’t love Temperpedic mattresses, but for anyone who does – you’ll like it. They also give you 5 pillows (4 temperpedic and 1 regular). I loved the wallpapers and chandeliers – such a chic design. We had a room facing the street. If you want to keep the windows open, expect some noise. But, if you keep them closed you’re fine.
The bathroom was a bit of a struggle. It had a rain head shower in the shower and with no door; our entire bathroom was flooded after each shower. It was cleaned by room service, but just a bit uncomfortable for the time being.
In all, I do highly recommend staying here.
I have one major complaint that will keep me from allotting 5 stars – on our last night, power in the hotel went out. It was a little scary at first, but since we had just come back to the hotel to change for dinner it wasn’t the biggest deal in the world. We took the stairs down from the 5th floor and went out. By the time we returned to our room the power was back. HOWEVER, the next morning when we were checking out, the power went out again. With NO elevators we were forced to carry our 50 pound luggage down the 5 story SPIRAL staircase on our own. I understand that this was beyond the hotel’s control, but no one offered to help us bring our things down. And, when checking out they still had the nerve to charge my 6 euro for 2 cups of tea I bought the previous day from the honesty bar. With no computer system running, they billed my card the next day. I felt like that was in incredibly poor taste due to the massive inconvenient we faced on our last day. Packing you entire room up in the dark is not plesant.

Room Tip: the rooms with the windows facing to the street can be noisy, but are so lovely

Dear guest HeadInTheCloudsNY,

We would like to thank you for your feedback, and our whole team is very happy to learn that you spent a very wonderful stay at our hotel although the problem with electricity.
Actually, it was a local mains failure and it wasn't answerable to our hotel. In the rush, we had tried to ensure greater safety for all our guests.
Meanwhile, we are sorry for this inconvenience and we hope to see you again.
Don't hesitate to contact us if you want to know our best offer.

This is a modernized boutique hotel that's clean, well-run and attractively priced. Our room was small; you can't both pass at the foot of the bed. The white sheer curtains on both sides of the bed, the mood-lighting sculpture on the ceiling and the artificial petals on the bed on arrival give it a romantic look, perfect for a couple in love. The bathroom is small, but had an enclosed glass shower with an optional rain shower head in the ceiling. The memory foam mattress was attractive during booking, but I found it too warm, waking up sweaty during the middle of the night. The only bed covering was a duvet; it was either that or nothing. The room was comfortable but if it got too warm, there's not cooling it down except to open the window. The morning breakfast buffet looked attractive but was too light on protein for us so we ate elsewhere and there are plenty of options nearby. There were some issues: there was a dried, crusty rug stain at the entrance. Not smelly, but it could use some heavy duty spot cleaning. Maid service was uneven: some days the room was done by the time you got back in the afternoon, sometimes it wasn't. Sometimes bathroom supplies were refreshed, sometimes they weren't. Biggest problem was on our last morning when the power failed to the entire hotel. The hallway emergency lights did stay on, and the exit stairway was very well lit as we lugged out suitcases down five flights to the lobby. The mostly bi-lingual staff is young and helpful.

Room Tip: Our room faced Rue de Rennes but we had no street noise issues and a pretty view. Rooms are decorat...

Dear Tommio,

Thank you for posting your review on TripAdvisor. We have actually taken your comments very seriously with regards to the air-conditioning system, it has been successfully checked and everything works now.

Concerning breakfast, we try to improve it very often, so we propose now more fresh products (boiled eggs, fresh fruits, smoked salmon, ...). We are currently thinking about adding some different products options in order to satisfy everyone.

We are sorry about the incident linked with the power cut, the electricity problem was in the entire quarter.

Our hotel proposes room categories with more space like the superior room "Passage Secret" or the "Deluxe room" ; don't hesitate to call the reception to book directly with us for your future reservation.

Thank you for your feedback and we look forward to your next stay among us.

With kind regards.

Hotel Legend was the perfect stay. The staff were very helpful, polite and VERY welcoming. They accomodated all our needs (adaptor, iron, how to work the hairdryer!!), room service was excellent (breakfast in bed) and the general vibe was chilled out and cosy. We would definitely return. The rooms are beautiful, just like the photos on their website. There are easy transport links which connect you straight to the EuroStar (Metro 6- 14 stops) and the eiffel tower (metro 4- 8 stops). Loved it! Thank you for making our stay in Paris so lovely.

That's the fourth time I stay at this hotel, and I would probably recommend it to a friend willing to spend a bit more money for some extra confort.

Pros:
- well enough located, and close to a metro station;
- great breakfast, for 15 Euros;
- modern, stylish, well appointed, and well maintained rooms;
- very nice beds, pillows, and bed linens. And great fluffy towels;
- great friendly staff.

Cons:
- a bit too expensive, considering that the breakfast is not included in their high rates;
- tv channels exclusively in french (!!!);
- water from shower box splashes everywhere in the bathroom or leaks from underneath shower box door whenever there is one (it happened at all the rooms I stayed in);
- very low quality soap and shampoo (or shower gel).

As to the soap and shampoo, they were excelent the other times. This time, I honestly consider them inacceptable for the price one pays to stay there. They were like "I love Paris" cheap products. I questioned them, and was told that they were trying new options for soaps and shampoos. Until they get it right, I suggest you bring your own shower items from home.

The hotel was modern, clean and in an nice area suitable for sightseeing, shopping its also close to the metro. The rooms are small but thats the norm in Paris, we dont spend much time in our room when we go away so its not an issue for us. The bedroom decor was lovely especially the light fittings. The bed was comfortable and the bed sheets were high quality. The breakfast area was small however we never struggled to get a table, the self service counter had plenty of choice and was topped up regularly. The staff are very helpful and friendly too.
