Dear Mohamed M,

It's my turn to be clear and precise in my comment.

First of all, I am enjoyed to read your words concerning my staff and your comments for cleanless and design : they are most important for me to read that our univers is friendly; it is one our goal in our adventure.

On the other hand, I am sorry to read that you was witness ,of this sad conversation : believe we do not contact police service everyday for our staff, how could we have all congratulations from our guests????

Your comment on our environnment cannot be generalized, we are in Paris and I am sorry that during your stay with us there were so much troubles on the street.

Finally, I need to understand exactly why you hate our breakfast :you are not very clear.
is it for bad quality, no fresh food.... or because we did not provide your breakfast dreamed??? That would be so interesting for us to know, because if you come back, it will be a pleasure for us to show you WE CAN!!!

Wow! How could one not think of Paris as the city of love after staying at 'One by the Five'? If you want to experience the romance of this fine city, may I suggest that this is the place to make it happen. Two nights will leave you with a feeling of total detachment from the real world and allow you to explore and experience all 6 senses (yes 6). All is tastefully explained to you upon arrival and then the rest is up to you. Simply amazing.

My husband and I travel to Paris frequently - this was a last-minute trip and, being Fashion Week, accommodation was hard to find. We had never stayed at The Five before and had no idea what to expect.

It is not in a part of Paris we are familiar with and it is a little further out than we would normally choose to stay. In saying that, the nearest Metro station is within easy walking distance.

We were greeted at reception with a warm welcome and given all the information we needed. Our room was spotlessly clean and extremely quiet - so quiet, in fact, that on the first night we couldn't sleep - we were disturbed by the sound of someone talking - (quite far off from what we could tell). Eventually we discovered we could close the door outside our room that lead to the stairwell and this solved the problem. The bed was really comfortable and beautifully made.

The bathroom - perfectly clean - towels, larger than usual in Paris which is always a nice surprise.

On the downside, the room was tiny, even by Parisian standards (in this price bracket). The shower was probably the smallest we had ever encountered anywhere in Europe but - once again - it was beautifully maintained and clean as a whistle. The water pressure was great.

We didn't eat breakfast at the hotel, so I can't comment but the breakfast room looked to be set up with alot of care and attention.

On our last morning, we asked reception to call for a taxi. We are used to the availability of Parisian taxis being a total lottery - but, after half an hour, a taxi arrived which proved to be the taxi for the people who arrived after us at reception.

Tanya, the lovely and unflappable receptionist, apologized, called the taxi company again and it seemed out taxi was 'lost'. We were told we'd have to wait another ten minutes. Nothing happened. By this time, the hotel reception was full of people needing Tanya's attention - some checking out, others needing directions - she never once wavered in her care and attention to detail for every one of us and amidst what must have been the busiest hour of her day, she continued to hound the taxi company relentlessly for us. Eventually our taxi came - and with profuse apologies from Tanya, we were on our way. We have stayed in many hotels around the world and paid many times more than what we paid at The Five and have received much poorer service. For this reason, I would most definitely recommend The Five. If you don't mind being a little bit off the beaten track (and once again, the nearest Metro is just a short walk away), and if you want a clean and exceptionally quiet room - this would be a good choice.

Very clean room, very courteous staff, very romantic week.

keep in mind when the site says located in quartier latin it is actually at the end of it where the 5eme meets the 13eme. However Rue Mouffetard is 2 minutes by foot and provides for many restaurants and shops, otherwise the metro is 500 meters away and will take you anywhere. The actual metro stop Les Gobelins in on the 7th line and passes by most tourist locations, or you will need to change lines maximum once.
I really advise this hotel for couples.

The hotel is near to the Metro so you can get everywhere. But if you would like to walk in the evenings there is not much to see except the little shopping street near by.

I would recommend a hotel near Sein or Eiffel for that.

the Rooms a very small but nice decorated though no minibar in the room.

The service/staff are all very nice and kind always ready to help you.

I think that the price is a little high all considered even though that is the case in Paris.

We payed over 700 euros for 3 nights in a room which was smaller them our car park and a bath"room" which was smaller then a kitchen table. Honestly all lovely but totally overpriced. Though the staff was extremely nice and charming but still could not make up for the size "a la miniature".

Dear Andreas F,

It is impossible to comparate The Five to your car park!!!!
Do not hurt my comment, but The Five is one of the most enormous charming boutique hotel in Paris thanks its stars and soul created by its staff. you wrote it : our staff is exceptionnal.
We do assume our size rooms, that's the reason why we are a cocoon, but Paris is full of small hotels rooms but Paris has The Five Hotel!!!!

As far as the hotel is physically concerned, there were no problems regarding our stay. The room was clean and tidy but small, well decorated, with a very comfortable bed and air con. Located in a quiet area within easy access of the public transport and not actually too far from the main attractions (depending on how much you like walking). The staff were very friendly and helpful too.
Now for the downside, we booked the hotel based on what I saw on the website, we expected something a lot more than what we actually got. Without the LED starlights the room is nothing special at all.
Overall, this is a nice, clean, functional hotel, but is TOO overpriced (in my opinion) and doesn't live up to the clever photography and lighting portrayed on the website.
