“Very Good Hotel in a Good Location”
Reviewed August 12, 2014

We stayed here in May 2014. Very easy to get to from the Eurostar as it was a few stops down on the Metro and on a quieter street slightly away from the main tourist areas. We asked for a room at the back which was very quiet. The room was a bit on the small side but as we were out and about sight-seeing it did not cause us any issues. The check was efficient and the staff very friendly and helpful. The hotel served breakfast which we did not have as it was extra. It also appeared not to have a restaurant but that did not cause us a problem as we already planned to eat out whilst we were there.

Dear AndrewJH16,

First of all, thank very much for coming back on your experience and taking the time to write this nice review about it, 3 months after your stay with us!

Indeed we don't have any restaurant, however may I kindly inform you that, as you already know it, we serve breakfast, but also have a bar available to our customers, and offer a complimentary soft drink open-bar every afternoon to please them once back from a day tour in Paris.

We hope to see you again in our hotel to take advantage of all our services!
Thank you one more time for this nice comment.

Sincerely,


Hugues Godard,
General Manager

We stayed with two of our daughters, both in their twenties, to celebrate the eldest's graduation. We found the hotel because it was top of Tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. This is a beautiful small hotel. Rooms are spotlessly clean and imaginatively decorated. My husband and I stayed in a top floor room with a small terrace. The bathroom was a reasonable size. Our daughters shared a smaller room on the floor below. Thank goodness for the air conditioning because Paris was unbearably hot for our trip!
A little out of the way for the main attractions, but an easy walk to the Pompidou Centre and the metro is right outside.
The main thing which sets this hotel apart is the caring staff. Very helpful in all ways you would expect, but we were particularly impressed on our final day. I was not feeling well, and couldn't join the rest of the family walking round Paris. We asked for a late check out, or maybe we could pay for a room for the day? Instead we were allowed a room until 4pm at no charge, which was incredibly generous and so helpful. Thank you!
I would not hesitate to recommend a stay here.

Room Tip: Top floor rooms with a terrace are lovely but all the rooms are quirky, clean and beautiful

I stayed here with my Husband and four 'children' (15-23 years) as a 25th wedding anniversary treat. The staff are friendly and welcoming without being overbearing, the film theme is tasteful and not overdone. The rooms are a good size, comfortable and clean with great bathrooms and very efficient air conditioning. We opted to eat breakfast in the hotel as the weather was poor and we weren't disappointed by the quality or the price. The location is good ; it is impossible to be central for everything in a big city. We found plenty of decent places to eat and drink in the area. I can't fault this hotel and we will be back if we are lucky enough to visit Paris again.

My wife and daughter stayed here for our daughter's 21st birthday treat and are still extolling it's virtues. The staff were without exception both friendly and helpful. The room was perfect and the addition of a free 'soft' minibar added to it's charms. Afternoon tea was also very welcome following a great deal of walking, sight seeing and some shopping. The cinema was set up to allow those that wanted, to watch the Tour de France and the gym whilst small, was apparently perfectly formed. They intend to return, and I intend to go with them...

Our experience with this hotel was perfect. The pre-stay portion was made easy, as Gregory helped us book a variety of great dining options, and corresponded with me in an expeditious, professional and exceedingly courteous manner. He also did so in English, accommodating my very challenged command of French.

The hotel itself was great. We were given one of the terraced rooms...very cool. Gregory, Karin (for whom special kudos are deserved) and the rest of the staff continued to assist us with recommendations, tours and insider tips. The breakfast buffet was awesome. Also a very nice afternoon snack arrangement.

The location was really convenient to walking to a lot of where we emphasize our trip....the Marais, the Louvre, Notre Dame, the Latin Quarter etc. A little edgy in certain directions, but that didn't bother us.

We would definitely stay at this hotel again when returning to Paris...the only temptation being to try one of the other Astotel properties in another neighborhood for variety. Clearly a top notch hotel chain, serving a boutique niche that is much more interesting, in our view, than some of the larger options.

Room Tip: If you book a deluxe room, ask for one with a terrace.

This hotel is over the top in every way, but what more could you ask for if you're looking for a bit of escapism in Paris? The service was excellent, the cocktail servers were especially wonderful. It was great to get to the hotel after a meal and then sit in the bar area and have a drink or two, with cocktails especially made to order. The hotel room was clean, quiet, well air-conditioned, and we always left feel refreshed energised and ready for our day. It's fantastic!
