“Stay in France”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

It's a pretty good hotel. It was very small but clean. It also had a comfortable bed and a bathroom. It was fine for one person, for two people it might be a little tight. However, if traveling alone, I would recommend it. It was very close to the Vincennes Castle and the metro. The free internet connection was also a plus. I didn't like that I constantly had to give the key when going out, but other than that everything was fine.

This is a great little hotel in a nice area opposite the Vincennes Castle. There are plenty of shops and restaurants near by and it is only a 2 minute walk to the metro. The rooms are recently refurbished, clean and adequate with comfy beds. My room (no. 43) was on the top floor (4th) overlooking the castle which was lovely - however, this did mean walking up a winding staircase to get there (there are no lifts in the hotel). The staff were extremely welcoming, helpful and spoke good English. Breakfast consisted of croissants, bread, cereal and yoghurts - plenty to keep you going throughout the day. Would definitely stay again and recommend this hotel.

This is a small hotel in a beautiful area. The hotel has been recently remodeled and is very clean and well maintained. It is right across from the Vincennes castle (the king's hunting castle). The area has numerous places to eat and the metro is nearby (the nicest metro in the city). The rooms are small to medium (I saw 5 of them), the beds are doubles (American Doubles so a bit small for two people) and the bathroom was small. But everything was very clean. There is no elevator but for me it didn't matter.

I would consider twin beds for a couple if the bed size matters.

Very friendly owners. Clean rooms, good beds, good sound insulation to the street, could need a little more upper corner dusting but still acceptable. Be careful on the stairs - it's tight. Breakfast baguette is one of the best I ever had.

Nice surroundings - clean area. Shopping for food and clothes is possible. The view to the Vincennes Castle from the room is unique.
Good access to city center.
I would visit again l'Hotel du Chateau :)

Stayed here with 2 friends for the Paris half marathon, 5 min walk from the start and Finish line and also 2 mins from metro station so handy location. Friendly and helpful staff, breakfast was adequate and rooms were very clean. Delightful little hotel.

An unpretentious, delightful little gem which reminded me of St.Michel in the 60s. The friendly staff gave me the warmest welcome and were exemplary in their professionalism throughout my short stay. My room was a tad snug, but with a wonderfully comfortable bed, the bathroom small but perfectly formed and both rooms were spotless. I will revisit with pleasure.

Room Tip: A steep circular staircase and no lift, so beware if you have dodgy legs

We were looking for a hotel near the Parc Floral. This one seemed a good choice and had good reviews. Unfortunately we were decieved. The hotel was rather kitch and the decor grim and dark. I give the owners full marks for creating a great website. Although one never expects hotels to look quite so perfect as they appear online, this one was much smaller, darker and uglier in reality. We paid 91 euro for a "double superior" but the bed was not only a small double but also short. Obviously it had to fit into the small room, but the manager claimed this was a European standard bed which clearly it wasn't! the room was hot and noisy. The breakfast was ok but the coffee pretty diabolical. In short we opted to check out and got charged the second night unfortunately. We found a better deal at the four star Best Western opposite, slightly cheaper and much more agreable. I would recommend the latter hotel if you want to stay in this area, which we liked very much for the local atmosphere and fantastic RER and metro links into Paris and to Eurodisney.
