“Lovely Parisien Escape”
Reviewed September 10, 2013

I was fortunate enough to discover this hotel whilst looking for a place to stay in Paris for a long weekend.

Whilst the price wasn't cheap, it definitely lived up to it's billing as a 5 star hotel.

The rooms were spacious, the bed was huge and comfortable and the bathrooms beautifully laid out (complete with a Japanese bath). The staff were also extremely helpful and attentive.

One evening we took dinner in the hotel and the food was delicious. The wine was also fabulous.

Whenever I am staying in Paris this will definitely be the first hotel I look for. I can't wait to go back.

This hotel is wonderful, earns the 5 star designation in every way. Our room was comfortable, spacious and well appointed. The overall effect is very "zen", a perfect respite after a busy day of sight seeing in Paris.

The hotel staff was very warm and welcoming. Upon arrival, we found a bottle of wine waiting for us along with some sweets. They were both delicious! We found the staff thoughtful and gracious throughout our stay; answering each of our requests quickly. They are professional and the most welcoming of hosts.

When our plans for a special dinner fell through, Mr. Valary offered to accomodate us with a last-minute table at La Regalade Conservatoire, the restaurant in the hotel. We had a delightful evening, the meal was excellent and the staff at the restaurant were very thoughtful. If you have the chance to enjoy a meal here, take it!

We will definitely include a stay at Hotel de Nell for any future travel to Paris!

This hotel is definitely a great hotel in Paris. I used to be in Paris quite often so I would prefer the hotels to be slightly outside of the busy area like Opera and Place Vendome. The hotel is in a quiet quarter with very few traffic so it make the stay very enjoyable. You would definitely need your GPS in your car as it is not that easy to find. They have a valet parking so going there with a car (and mine was relatively large) would not be a problem.

The hotel is very comfortable and spacious. Service staff is excellent. The only issue is that the shower has a false celling and raised a few inches off the ground. With my husband's height of 194cm (6'4"), he cannot stand straight up in the shower. For me it is perfect. For him, he would need to not stand up straight during the shower.

One advice is that when you go out strolling, do remember to bring the map and the business card of the hotel as the key cards and the key cards folder do not have any address on it. We have encountered a problem with taxi drivers who do not know where the hotel is so we must stop on Rue de Lafayette and find out way back.

I will definitely go back to this hotel again for our next trip to Paris.

Dear BGSchmidt,
L'Hôtel de NELL is located in a small one way street, so you are right, our streets, rue du Conservatoire and rue Saint Cécile are very quiet. However, the Big boulevards are not far, and in few minutes walking distance, you find yourselves in the Parisian excitement.
Regarding the shower, we are so sorry for this inconvinient. Next time, do not hesitate to talk about this problem with us, we can check which room will be more appropriate for your husband.
Best Regards,

We had the best stay at the Hotel de Nell. From beginning to end everything was wonderful. We were greeted by a lovely woman at the front desk and personally shown to our rooms. The staff was awesome and went out of their way to help us with a dinner reservation. Speaking of the staff, they were friendly and warm but not intrusive.

The rooms were extremely spacious-we were upgraded upon arrival without even asking. The beds were really big and comfortable and the shower was great. We had a nice view of the church across the street.

Dinner at the hotel restaurant was one of the best meals we've had in Paris so far.

We would definitely go back.

We just returned from a 5 day stay at the Hotel de Nell. The hotel is absolutely perfect, the rooms were quiet and beautiful. The bathroom floor and towel racks were heated and we had a tub and rainfall shower. The air conditioning was better than any hotel we have ever stayed at, highly efficient and very quiet. Everything was perfect. The location is about 15-20 minute from most if the main attractions and only 10 minutes from the metro.
The staff was incredibly helpful, got us tickets to museums and gave us directions to everything.
Just the perfect getaway tucked into a neighborhood with restaurants and cafes and shops nearby.
We loved it and would go back in a second
The restaurant La Regalade Conservatoire was phenomenal and is attached to the hotel. Get reservations as soon as you arrive or before or you won't get in. It is very popular. Don't miss the rice pudding!!

Dear Guiw,
As you say, the hotel de NELL is located in a quiet street, nearby the Grands Boulevards, between Gare du Nord and Opera, it is the perfect place if you commute by Gare du Nord to enjoy Paris.
We are waiting for you for your next stay in Paris

I picked this hotel because of its proximity to Gare du Nord. My friend and I were taking the Eurostar back to London early in the morning. We did not want to miss our train because of the notorious Parisian traffic. It was a very nice hotel by and large. The decor is very nice and tasteful, befitting a five star hotel. Our room was quite spacious, much more so than the other hotel in Paris we stayed at on this trip (Hidden Hotel by Elegancia). There was also the Japanese bath tub, which was a nice touch. The staff was also quite helpful. We were in a hurry for the train station in the morning and they helped us chase our booked taxi. However, just a few quibbles about the hotel. First, while the Japanese bath tub looked very nice, it didn't really work. It took us half an hour to fill it and it was still only half full. Not sure what the problem was. Also, we asked for body lotion and were told that the hotel had none, which was a bit shocking, given that this is a five star hotel. Not that body lotion is an essential item, but you would expect a five star hotel to provide it. The location was fine. We picked it because of its proximity to Gare du Nord. But if we were sightseeing in Paris, I am not sure if it has the best location. It is a little out of the way. But on the whole, we had a pleasant stay and would recommend it to other travelers.

Dear HKGlobetrotter,
Thank you for your comment on TripAdvisor.
We are located between Opera House and Gare du Nord, so it is quite practical to enjoy the center of Paris, while being near the Gare du Nord.
Regarding the Japanese bath, we have to check what happened. Regarding the body lotion, we do have but on request. I will ask to the housekeeper why we answered yuo that we don't not, this is a mistake, and we are sorry for that.
See you in l'Hôtel de NELL

The 9e may not be as glamorous as the 1e or historic as the Marais, but the number of top Paris restaurants that are within a walk or very brief taxi ride are numerous. The Nell is in the middle of it all, and simply great accommodations. Friendly and helpful staff, beautifully appointed and functionable rooms (received an upgrade on mine, unasked), and an excellent restaurant if you don't feel like heading out at all. Easy walk from either Gare du Nord or d'Est. The 8 line of the Metro, which will whisk you to Place Concorde and the Tuileries in seven minutes, is less than a five minute walk from the front door of the hotel. The Nell will definitely be on my list to consider the next time I'm in this wonderful city.
