After spending 220 Euros a night to stay at the Novotel (near Centrale station) we were very happy to have found room 17 at the Hotel Des Arts for exactly half the price. Paris is a very expensive city for accomodation, so we were very pleased with our find.
We loved the French retro design of the room,the lobby and the hotel in general which gave you that feel that you were truly in Paris. Although rooms are rather small, they are certainly adequate with a nice comfortable bed,a storage closet and a nice clean bathroom.For those of you travellers who don't want to spend your time hanging around the hotel all day, this place will more than adequatley meet your needs without destroying your bank account.The breakfast is continental with cold cereal, breads,coffee,yogurt, cheese and juice for a very reasonable 10 Euros.Furthermore, the hotel and surrounding area have a "very safe" feel as you are in a great environment.
The staff is superb. The are very friendly, helpful and kind to answer all your questions regarding tourism. The will let you come early and store your bags safely before your 2PM checkin, which is just perfect because there is a lot to see nearby.If the owner is reading this, you have hired a great staff and bonuses should be forthcoming...LOL! Thankyou everybody!
We used the nearby(5 minutes) Blanch station as our main arrival/ departure area as it is well located to other nearby tranfer possibilities. The main international Gard De Nord train station is a mere 3 stops and 5-10 minutes away from Blanch and made travel to other European destinations quick and easy.The Blanch station in itself is right beside the very famous "Moulon Rouge" which is a must have photograph while visiting Paris.Night time photos of it are particuliarily impressive.
The neighborhood surrounding the hotel is on one of those older cobblestone streets with many cute shops nearby giving it that real French cultural feel that tourists want to experience.A short 10 inute walk away (up a steep hill) is this beautiful church and tourist area complete with shops, restaurants and bars. This is the perfect place to visit while awaiting check in and also at night as it lights up for some fantastic photo opportunities.
The owner of the hotel has done a fantastic job regarding decoration, staff, pricing and this hotel definitley deserves it's lofty status in the Trip Advisor ratings for hotels in Paris.As budget travelers, we were pleased with our find.
