“It's very good”
Reviewed July 31, 2012

I stayed at this Hotel for two weeks in June 2012.

In 2010 the hotel was entirely renovated. You will have a new lift, which is efficient, with a modern bathroom and modern room fittings, including good air-conditioning.

I found that even for a two week stay, the rooms are adequate in size, unless you plan to visit Paris and sit in your room all day. There are three rooms per floor; the rooms number "1" are larger than "2" or "3" by a few square metres, and also have a bit more efficient use of space by avoiding irregular wall shapes. There is a shower but no bath.

The wardrobe space is tight but sufficient. There is more than adequate space for suitcases and shopping, along the front window wall beside the desk (see photo). The minibar is tiny but replenished free of charge each day. The room maid is efficient, and the room is quiet and in good order. Towels, bedsheets etc are clean and good quality.

The staff is perfect in English and really professional. You will get to know them, and will feel you have an identity in a hotel of this scale. Restaurant bookings, airport transfers, no problem.

The Marais is a good choice for location. There are weekend markets, interesting and varied shopping, Place des Vosges, many cafes and brasseries, and the metro at St Paul is just around the corner at 100 metres. The adjacent St Catherine square is charming (see photo). The Metro at Bastille is also easily reached, and offers several metro lines for direct access, for example, to Blde Haussman, if you want to explore further afield.

Almost newly fitted out, with great staff, in such a prime location, at this price point, the Hotel Caron must be a highly recommended choice in Paris.

Room Tip: Larger rooms are numbered "1" on each floor

One thing I really liked about Hotel Caron was the "no baloney" attitude of the hotel staff. We were in the front door our room in about 5 minutes after arriving. We were able to make pit stops to drop off shopping and freshen up quickly and smoothly. Also, because we were in the great Marais district, shopping and eating was fun. I couldn't believe my luck when I saw 6 men's shirt stores within 100 metres of the hotel's front door.

Room Tip: All rooms are remarkably quiet given the proximity to a major thoroughfare.

I cannot believe I just spent 190E per night on this.

This was my sixth trip to Paris, so obviously I am aware that the rooms can be smaller than ideal, but mine was literally EIGHT FEET WIDE. (No, I am not exaggerating.)

There is nothing horrible about the hotel, but you need to know in advance that you are booking basic accommodations with small rooms. I will stay elsewhere when next in Paris.

Spent 5 nights there in June/July and can only say nice things. Great central location, very helpful and friendly staff (bonjour Sondra & Hassan), whole place recently remodeled so very modern bathrooms/furnishings and very reasonable rates. Would not hesitate to return & hope to have the chance soon.

I chose this hotel because of the reviews in TA and the location. I really wanted to stay here in Le Marais for my first trip and I usually like the hip areas the best. This hotel is in the perfect location in Le Marais and there are some nice restaurants nearby and the metro is only few blocks away. Hotel is small and only 3 rooms in every floor. The lobby and the breakfast room are beautiful. The staff was very nice and some of them spoke excellent English.

Our room was very small and although there was not much space for the luggage or clothes, it had everything we needed for our extended weekend. However 4 nights was enough in such a small room. If I would staye here longer I would get one of the bigger rooms.

I think the furniture was Ikea-style and quality so although the room looked very nice and the dark wallpapers and furniture made it very stylish and modern it is also very easily damaged. There were some scratches on the wall and on the furniture and it made the room look a bit worn. The bathroom was beautiful and clean and there were L'Occitane toiletries.

Next time I might choose another area just for the experience but if I would stay in Le Marais I would stay here if I got a good price.

Honestly I don't have a bad word about this hotel. The rooms are quaint and very nice, as well as practically soundproof once you close the window. The mini-fridge was stocked every single day with free drinks AND snacks, what a nice bonus! Loved the l'occitane beauty supplies too. The staff was wonderful and extremely helpful at any time of day or night. They even had a great supply of umbrellas for us the one day it rained! The location can't be beat - very close to the Metro, shops, walking and biking distance to tons of the main attractionsI Would definitely return.

Here is a tip though - Rue Caron is TINY, and our cab driver did not know where it was, nor did most of the people we talked to. Additionally, most maps do not show rue Caron. So, make sure you know where this hotel is when you leave! We spent about 30 minutes wandering around the marais looking for it and found it quite accidentally. Ha! Be warned!

We stayed at Hotel Caron for two nights back in May 2012 and was our First time staying in the Marais district. We thought the location was great, with plenty of attractions walking distance and if not St Paul metro was a 2 min walk down the road.

Room was modern and comfortable, with a bonus of the fridge being stocked daily with water, soft drink and chocolate bars.

Only issues was the size of the room (which we expected somewhat) however there wasn't enough room to put two suitcases on the ground and the bathroom was tiny. Certainly not a deal breaker for 2 nights but if staying longer would be an issue.

The staff were fantastic, super friendly and extremely helpful, nothing was too much trouble.

Overall a good experience.
