We were checked into a not too good a room (right beside reception) it was quite loud and not very relaxing. After speaking with hotel they kindly and thankfully moved us upstairs to a larger and much more peaceful room, nice views and all round so much more relaxing. The room and bathroom were very nice and clean. The hotel itself is very nice. It is a bit out from the centre of Paris so be prepared to navigate the metro system (do not taxi as Paris in my opinion has THE WORST TAXI service I have ever witnessed). One down point about hotel is the housekeeping. There is no 'do not disturb' signs which i still can't get my head around. So if you hadn't left your room any earlier that 10:30am you were constantly harassed by housekeeping staff to leave so your room could be cleaned. I found this absurd and quite rude. You should be able to lie in bed and relax and not have to get up and debate with housekeeping staff when you want to leave your room. Seriously ridiculous and should be well looked at by management. Apart from that the hotel is good.

Recently stayed at this cute Hotel in Paris. Very conveniently located not too far from the airport and steps away from the Metro. Great neighborhood, lots of dining options and shopping. Staff was extremely helpful with questions, directions and recommendations. When our room developed a strange noise that couldn't be resolved, the night manager didn't hesitate to relocate us.

Room Tip: Some rooms are a little small, so if you need a little more room, request it.

Fantastic hotel. Stayed here for the Paris half marathon. Was readily accessible to metro and walkable to restaurants and groceries. Old-world charm with modern flare! Staff was excellent. I will definitely stay here again next time I come to Paris.

Just returned from a three night stay and would highly recommend Hotel de la Porte Doree. Small but clean room, modern ensuite, comfy bed. The whole place has bags of charm and character. Staff really friendly and the location although a little further out than where we've stayed before is no more than a few stops on the metro from the centre of Paris. The entrance to the metro is right outside the hotel which is ideal.

Would definitely stay again!!

Stayed in a triple room, with my sister and daughter. Made very welcome on arrival. Contemporary feel to the hotel . Clean rooms. Showers could do with a boost or new heads. Useful/helpful booklet in room of things in the locality. Excellent restaurant just round the corner, Bistro de Porte Doree. Metro just outside. Lovely staff on reception. Great chap doing breakfast who was run off his feet on Sunday as everyone came down together before the Paris half marathon. Really nice feel to the place , perfect small hotel.

Stayed here whilst taking part in the paris half marathon, and would definitely stay here again. The run ran right by the front of the hotel and and start/finish line was not far to walk to. It's right outside a metro station so the rest of the sights of paris are not to far away at all! The hotel itself isn't much to look at from the outside but inside its beautiful. All the rooms were different and quirky and very clean. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful (unusual for paris!) and most spoke pretty fluent English - a lot better than my French thankfully! Upon arrival we were told of a problem with the plumbing and in one of our rooms the hot water was hit and miss but that was our only issue. Didn't have the breakfast as thought €12 each was a little steep but there was an excellent bakery opposite. Overall would highly recommend, especially if running the paris half.

Stayed here for the half marathon. On arrival, we had a quick and easy check in. When we we entered the room, it was quite cold. Radiator was stone cold. Heating controlled through air con, so could be warmed up but was noisy! Our room was between the kitchen and breakfast room so was noisy from 6.45 onwards. Could hear rumble of trains also. Room was small, but clean. Shower was powerful. Hotel is right next to the metro station and had the most amazing boulangerie across the road. Incredible pastries!! Not much happening in this area in the evening, but I guess that is what happens when you are not right in the centre! Location was perfect for the half marathon and they kept a room free for us to have showers after. Although this was not the original plan! When I asked about having a late checkout a few weeks ago they suggested I paid another night. So there were obviously a lot of people who had requested a shower!! The breakfast is not worth the 12 Euros! Definitely recommend getting your breakfast from the boulangerie across the road! Wouldn't go back if I was visiting paris, but perfect for the half marathon. Great to have free wifi though!!
