The hotel is very handily located just off the Rue St Antoine in a bustling area and close to a lovely, romantic square full of bars. It's very close to Saint-Paul metro station. The room we stayed in was small but perfectly adequate for a weekend stay when you don't intend to spend long in it anyway. The staff - particularly Hassan on the front desk - were very friendly indeed and let us leave our baggage in a locked side room hours before we were able to check in. The room rate includes the contents of the mini bar (nothing alcohol, alas) and movies, but again, if you're having the kind of fantastic weekend we had you're not going to be interested in either! This hotel is perfect for a short stay.

Spent almost a week here and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Typical
contemporary boutique hotel in the Marais on a quiet side street off a
main road and a short walk from a metro stop on the busy 1 line. Its a
small cozy hotel with maybe 25 rooms total, so you're not going to get
a bellhop and doorman and all that. There is a breakfast available but
there's way too many better options just outside. Typically tiny
hallways and elevators (at least they have elevators!).

The regular rooms are typical Parisian size but the bathroom is
actually quite spacious relatively speaking. However, the open glass
shower design meant that a lot of overspray gets on the floors. The
beds were comfy, but no real desk space, just a little ledge to put
your laptop on which you need to do because the free internet is
wired. Wi-fi is extra. However, the TV is loaded with free movies on
demand and even better the fridge is stocked with free drinks! Nice
big classic french windows open up to the street and unfortunately a
Scottish Pub across the street but their patrons are mostly well
behaved and quiet late at night.

Staff were friendly by Parisian standards (eg professional and
courteous but not effusively happy like in North America) and we even
shared a laugh over the general strike going on at the time.

If you're after a more affordable contemporary hotel rather than the
classic french style and want to be close to the Marais this is the
spot.

stayed by mistake, thought we were going to the Caron de Beaumashais, which is 3 streets away. Will check more carefully next time, but no problems. Charming front of house, very good breakfast, which seemed expensive at 18 euros each, but would have cost more in a cafe --assuming you want a hearty breakfast and not just a coffe and croissant.

newly decorated with Porcelanosa bathroom, free wifi and internet, air con. V comfortable bed, but the room itself was compact, but fine for 8 hours of sleep.

great location, for sights, shopping and and restaurants, recommend Monjul and des Gars dans la cuisine.

travel tip...we flew to Orly with BA, sale price as SLF airlines (self loading freight), but with no baggage restrictions. and orly was 25 minute cab ride for 30 Euros, compared to 2 airport bus rides to Invalides, which is not exaxtly convenient

Room Tip: didn't use it this time, as all the rooms seemed the same, but where there a difffernce, I tell...

Recently stayed at Hotel Caron in the Marais area. This is a small boutique hotel and for its class is fine. It is conveniently located near the St. Paul metro and walking distance to Notre Dame, Louvre, and there are many excellent restaurants and quality shopping within a few blocks. The reception personnel were friendly and accommodating. The room was very clean and the mini bar stocked with water, soft drinks, and snacks for no charge. I would definitely return. This is a great area of Paris.

We stayed in this hotel for one night, before a tour and was pleasantly surprised. The room, although small, was extremely comfortable and in a fantastic location. The staff were friendly, allowed us to check in very early, we didn't even have to ask, and the room price includes a well stocked mini bar of water, soft drinks and snacks. We would definitely recommend this hotel.

We were really pleased with this hotel. It’s in a fantastic location (near place des vosages) a short walk from trendy shopping areas and an abundance of restaurants and the metro. The rooms, although slightly compact are clean, modern and lovely. The bathroom was also modern and spotless with small hairdryer and L’occitane products. There is no full length mirror in the rooms. The beds and pillows are extremely comfortable and the linen white and clean. Internet access was free, as was an extensive selection of movies on demand. The free minibar offered 2 x sparkling mineral water, coke, iced tea, juice, kit-kat, chips, nuts and a few other things. There was a bar directly opposite, but with the windows closed and the air-conditioning on, we couldn’t hear a thing. We would definitely recommend this hotel for a short stay in Paris.

This little three star hotel in the heart of Le Marais is perfect for a not too expensive weekend. It is exceptionally clean and the staff are helpful and friendly. Recommend
