“Nice choise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2013

It has been a positive surprise when I saw the reception the room and after my overnight stay in this hotel. Its position is amazing since it's close to the most beautiful monuments of the city and also not far away from the metro station. Good money for value since rates are competitive and qaulity (which is not really guarantee in Paris) is outstanding

Dear Sir,
Thank you for your lovely comments on The Atmospheres Hotel.
Indeed, Hotel Atmospheres enjoys a central location that allows you to visit Paris on foot.
We are also close to 4 metro and RER stations (lines 4, 7, 10 and line B which connects the airports of Orly and CDG).
We all look forward to welcoming you back
Sincerely yours.
Christelle Boin - Manager

The location is great, easy walk to the Luxembourg Gardens, St Germain, Notre Dame or anywhere else in the city. There is a bus stop just outside (a much nicer way to get around than the Metro) but the Metro is also very close. This is my favourite area of Paris and although this is slightly off the St Germain strip, there are lost of bars and restaurants around.

They have tried to do something genuinely different here. Colourful decor and lots of art. Sometimes it works, sometimes not. We stayed in one of the deluxe suites (the Blue one) but there was a lot of noise from the street outside as the window of the lounge area is right on the street. However, it was well equipped with a fantastic bathroom and comfortable bed.

On our second evening in the hotel, there was a problem with the hot water and we were unable to shower our two boys before bed. They were not unduly bothered, however, the manager/owner, was exceptionally apologetic and gave us all a complimentary breakfast the next day. This was very generous for what was only a minor inconvenience. All of the reception and breakfast staff were very welcoming and polite and this is not always a given in Paris.

In short, very good hotel, great location, exceptional customer service.

Room Tip: If choosing a deluxe suite, ask for the duplex. It is larger and quieter.

Stayed here for 2 nights October 2013! Very central hotel, short walk from notre Dame station, great for the Latin quarter bars restaurants etc! Hotel quirky, smallish rooms but adequate, clean plenty of storage, free tea/coffee in rooms, free safe, free toiletries, immaculate bathroom. Staff all very friendly and helpful. Didn't have breakfast in hotel as so many places to try! Stored our luggage on last day no problem. Loved the photographs and decor! A Parisian gem .

Very good location to walk to Notre Dame, metro (Maubert Mutualite) and along the Seine. Very clean, Very helpful and polite staff, recommended Le Coupe-chou restaurant nearby (very good food and ambiance). Staff had sauna ready when we asked for it. Full breakfast is OK for 16 euros tho scrambled eggs, sausage,bacon not up to UK standard. The decor is a bit quirky with lots of lit up unusual large photos of Paris; we had one above our bed and our loo wall-paper had pictures of coloured biscuits that are sold in the patisseries - weird but added to the quirkyness. Bed was really comfy, shower was excellent tho room was small (they all are in Paris). Overall, would definitely use this hotel again for location, friendliness and cleanliness.

Room Tip: We were on 5th floor and found it very quiet.

The location and room style of this hotel were amazing. You cannot go wrong with being right in the middle of the Latin Quarter! The room was very clean and well appropriated. The service, however, left a bit to be desired.

We arrived at the hotel around 8:30AM and were told to come back around 2:00PM to check in. We came back about 1:45PM and checked in. The front desk agent told us to sit in the lobby for a few minutes while he confirmed the room was available, in view of the desk. Over an hour later, I go to check on it, and he had forgotten about us! It wasn't like the hotel lobby was super busy or anything. Anyway, later that night we returned and found out that the water was out in the entire hotel, and there was rushing water in the elevator shaft so we had to walk. Not too bad, considering we were only on the 4th floor and are able bodied. Luckily the water came back by the morning.

As good as the location and rooms were, I would probably think twice before staying here again.

Dear Sir,
I thank you for your comment and I am pleased that you enjoyed the hotel Atmospheres.
The check-in time is 2:00pm but if rooms are available earlier, it is obvious that our customers can have them upon arrival.
I am sincerely sorry that you waited so long to have your room, and I cannot imagine that you have been forgotten by the receptionist because our customers are their main concern!
Thank you for your understanding regarding the water leak we had in the basement the night of your arrival. We had to cut off the water and stop the elevators for several hours (the time of making the necessary repairs). Each guest has been indemnified in order to compensate the temporary lack of comfort caused by this unfortunate incident.
I wish that our customers are satisfied with their stay and I hope to be able to restore your trust in us.
Please contact me personally before your next visit to Hotel Atmospheres
Meanwhile, I remain at your disposal.

After much debate on where to stay in Paris, my boyfriend and I picked Hotel Atmospheres and we were not disappointed. Perfect spot in the Latin Quarter. Walking distance to several Metro stops and several major attractions. Rooms are small- typical European style, but once we unpacked we had plenty of space. Loved that the windows opened too! Staff was friendly and accommodating. Loved the pizza place next door and had a nice meal at L'Authur across the street. I would stay here again when I return to Paris.

I stayed here twice and was happy each time, so I can recommend it. The first time I was upgraded to a premium room for some reason, which is a little larger, the second time I was in a standard room, which met all of my needs. The staff working the front desk are helpful, and speak excellent English, if you need that as I do. I have no reservations about recommending this hotel. It is easy to find and in a good location.
