Hotel Des Boulevards

Reviewed March 1, 2013

Lodged at this hotel based on the recommendation by a friend of mine who already tried it. The "quality-price" ratio is interesting. I paid € 68,00- for one night with breakfast included.
Rooms are not very tall but well arranged and clean. Depending the rate, you benefit from a shower, a WC or a complete bathroom. Bathrooms are very narrow in order to let space for the room itself, which is not an issue for short duration stays, especially when you travel alone. Not so sure it would be the same if we were two people sharing the room (bed is rather narrow as well).
But, I would definitely recommend this place that gives you value for your (cheap) money.

Room Tip: Take a dubble room with shower + WC - rather enough and cheaper than the complete bathroom which doe...

A great hotel for low budgets, very clean and spacious comparing with similar hotels. Free wifi, even on the 4th floor! Great location, near three metro stations, near the Opera and next to different stores. Only disadvantage, no stairs.

Room Tip: Try to ask for rooms in the first floors

My husband and I visited Paris, Germany and Italy a few weeks ago. We wanted the full experience without breaking the bank, so we decided to skimp on the hotels we stayed out in order to see all the sights. The Hotel Des Boulevards is a really great choice. I highly recommend them because they are very nice, clean and in a good location.

If you don't mind walking you can walk to the Lourve, The Orsy, Eiffel Tower, Napoleon Tomb, see the river, the Luxembourg Gardens, The Notre-Dame, Saint Chapelle and other places in Paris from this hotel. For Americans, there is a Pizza Hut, KFC and McDonalds nearby for a quick taste of home if you need it.

The stairs everyone is talking about are inside, and not rickety as much as they are uneven. We didn't have trouble with them at all. Our room didn't have a view, but was nicely kept, very clean and exactly what we needed. We had our our bath with a bath tub. If I had know, I would have requested a shower. The towels look older, but were clean and refreshed every day. This is not a romantic looking hotel, but Paris is romantic enough without needing a plush place to stay.

The staff was very helpful. We didn't realize that the metro and trains would not be available early enough for our flight, but the hotel attendant asked us the night before how we were going to get to the airport and told us what time the trains run. He called around and found us a taxi that could pick us up at 4:30 am. They were also good to answer questions and very friendly.

We traveled in October when it was cold and rainy. Every night when we came back to the hotel it was nice and toasty. You can open the window to cool it down if you need to.

The breakfast is a piece of bread and jam/butter, but I must say that was the best bread and the best tasting butter I have ever had. It's not like our bread here in the states. It was the best breakfast I had while in Europe, and most of the other days we had chocolate croissants.

The hotel is only a few streets down from the road Rue Montorgueil where they have outdoor markets and lots of fun shops. I suggest you go there if staying at this hotel

I highly recommend this hotel as a crash pad for anyone on a budget coming to Paris.

This hotel is very affordable, the staff is helpful, and the room was decent. But it was 76 uneven stairs from the lobby, and with luggage and an elderly woman in our party, we made very sure we didn't forget anything in the room before we left for the day each morning. The hotel is in a great location and although the breakfast set-up is odd, it's bearable. But be sure to ask for a room on a lower floor unless you are in good shape.

It's not a stunning hotel, the decor or breakfast won't blow you away but the staff were helpful, the rooms were large and clean, the price was great and the location was fantastic.
It is very basic but it's a stones throw from supermarkets, markets, shops, cafes, and walking distance from Notre dame, Luxembourg gardens, the lourve etc

Basic, clean hotel in very good location. Down a quiet side street. Lots of bars and restaurants nearby. Large bedroom. Clean spacious en suite. 25 min walk to the Louvre. 5 min walk to metro.

Would definitely stay here again & recommend to budget travellers.

This is indeed a budget hotel, so we expected and received a small room and limited facilities. in fact, the room was tiny with no where to put luggage other than on the very small table. It was however very clean and quiet.
Breakfast was a basic baguette with tea or coffee - best taken on a tray to your room as there are no dining facilities.
This is not a suitable hotel for anyone who has mobility issues or is unable to manage their luggage up steep and uneven stairs.
The staff do not seem at all interested in welcoming or helping guests.
