    My Favorite Hotel in the World

    Okay, it is small. But, really, what do you expect in Paris? And though I am a person with the means to travel to Paris, I am not a person with the means to travel high end to Paris. For a moderate price, this hotel has all the charm and ambiance one would hope to find in the City of Love. In fact, my husband and I loved this hotel so much, we stayed there in 2007 and again in 2010.

    What did I like? First of all, the decor...brilliant reds and blues; the windows, french, of course, allowing all of the fresh air into the room daily; the breakfast, pain au chocolat, hard boiled eggs, tea, cheese, kiwi, delish; the staff, always kind and willing to help, not once condescending towards us because of our American-ness; the location, in the hip Marais, we were within walking distance from the Louvre, the Notre Dame Cathedral, and my favorite place to shop in Paris, BHV!

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Caron de Beaumarchais Paris

    Great Paris Location!

    from

    My husband and I just returned from a wonderful six-night stay at the Hotel Caron de Beaumarchais over Christmas 2003. The location was fabulous - 10 minute walk to Notre Dame, 15 minutes to Place des Voges, 3 minutes to the nearest Metro, and all the wonderful Marais shops begin just outside your door. We initially stayed in a third floor room and then moved to room 61 which was smaller (and yes, the rooms are small, but I believe they all conveniently laid out and have lovely wooden ceiling beams) but which had an outdoor balcony, a view over the Marais rooftops, and a shower. The rooms are quiet, the beds are very comfortable, the staff is professional and friendly (not overly personal - but I tend not to prefer that anyway), and it's great to be able to order either a breakfast or just coffee/tea in your room. I did considerable research about hotels in the Marais and St. Germain areas, and though we passed many of them in our long walks, our location couldn't have been better nor our trip more restful. We will definitely return another time.

    Just another hotel

    from

    I stayed at Caron de Beaumarchais for a few nights in March 2002.

    Whilst everything was as it should be in a hotel, it was nothing special. Negatives: The room was tiny, furniture bordering on kitsch, tiny lift. Positives: Modern well designed bathroom, the service was very efficient.If you are expecting a fabulously warm little hotel with a heart of gold I would stay elsewhere, I felt like I was paying a premium because they appeared in Cond Nast. I would equate the Caron de Beaumarchais to the Warwick Hotel in San Francisco.

    We loved this hotel

    from

    My husband and I stayed here and loved it. The room was typical for Paris, small but functional. Being winter, we couldn't eally use our balcony, but the view over the rooftops was beautiful. Our concierge was very polite and helpful. We really loved the breakfasts - what wonderful coffee. We will definitely be staying there again for Easter.

    Good location

    from

    Just returned from a 4 night stay here. Initially a bit disapointed with the small 'courtyard' room at the back when we had been quoted for a larger room at the front - no doubt we got this because of the late arrival of our easyjet flight. However, the room soon proved to be well equipped and with everything to hand. Great location in the Marais and we would also recommend the Colimacon Restaurant just a few doors up the street - great food and atmosphere - absolutely no need to trail the streets looking for something further away.

    Very Tiny rooms

    from

    Rooms are extremely small, staff not very helpful with directions, would not stay here again.

    Shame about the departure

    from

    After the initial shock of how tiny our room was, we did setttle nicely into Caron de Beaumarchais. Everything was comfortable and clean and nicely presented. The breakfasts were a real treat and kept us nicely filled until lunchtime and we had the added bonus of a balcony which made a perfect setting from which to enjoy it. The morning newspaper was a nice touch too. We stayed for four nights and it was disappointing however that by the third day our bed had not had a linen change. Our departure was tumultuous to say the least with the gentleman at the desk verbally abusing my boyfriend and shouting and throwing his arms in the air over a disagreement with the payment, we wanted to pay with visa, he insisted it was cash only and that we should have known better ( No- one had informed us of this at any stage) We felt terribly embarrassed and so following a cash payment left swiftly. Unfortunately, this spoiled what had been a pleasant experience to that point and so we will definitely not be returning to this hotel

    A honeymoon hotel!

    from

    After researching for many months for the right hotel, I found Tripsadvisors and found the Hotel Caron de Beamarchais. It was as wonderfull as people described it and for a european not as tiny as for a american. There were everything on the room and especially the served breakfast was wonderfull!!! We thought that it was very tastefull decorated and clean and the idea about stepping into a livingroom and not a reception is perfect. You felt at home right away. Its a very honeymoon like hotel. Not especially made for people with children. Too small in that sense.

    Charming hotel with some history

    from

    Had a wonderful 5 day stay here in early December, 2002. The hotel is well situated for The Bastille, Marais, Notre Dame, Louvre, with everything else only a metro ride away. The rooms are small by even european standards, but very modern and well appointed with TV, internet capable phone lines, and a very well designed bathroom with shower/tub. Try to get one of the 2nd floor balcony rooms, particularly if the weather is decent (which it was not during our stay, but who cares, since you are in Paris!) The son and father team are very gracious, and will help book restaurants, etc. We can enthusiastically recommend Le Repair de Cartouche (sp?) in the Bastille/Marais and La Regalade in the 14th arr. for great food at reasonable prices(75-80 euro for 2 incl. wine). The wine lists were good as well.

    Overall an excellent stay(which we rate an 8-9/10), and we plan to return on our next Paris trip.

    A really fine place to stay

    from

    My husband/dance partner stayed here for 15 nights in November, 2002. I did 2 months of research before choosing the Caron. Was my work worth it? Yes! This hotel is managed perfectly. Utterly and uniformly clean, uncompromised plumbing, umbrellas in a stand near the door for you to borrow. Fresh linen every single day, and and a new live flower posey on your hand-painted desk every day; comfortable beds with real wool blankets (not that space age unresilient cheap material substitute sold in North America). Staff who ran to BHV and bought a new iron for our use, the moment they heard that theirs had broken. Coffee at our door every morning within 4 minutes of our request. People who answered all my prior e-mails and queries in a timely way; who didn't treat us like tourists; who answer you in French if that's what you initiate. A small room, like most of Paris, of course, and yes, eighteenth century-style upholstered chair styles aren't comfortable to relax in, but there are a zilllion hang-out places just outside your door, and the decor is beautiful and distinctly not kitsch. On a lively, trendy, but non-touristy street. French windows on the front rooms completely block out noise (like the wonderful peal of bells from Notre Dame). The Caron is very good value, though not budget. I'd only suggest that they instal shower curtains because it's a shame to soak the whole floor and toilet seat in the classy bathroom when you shower. To avoid this, we took baths only. A pity because the inclusion of both a shower AND bathtub is one mark of a 3-star hotel. Except for this, this hotel is like a perfect townhouse.

    We can't stop staying at this Parisian hotel

    from

    The Hotel Caron de Beaumarchais, 12 rue Vielle du Temple, is a most wonderful place to stay. So wonderful, that we can't seem to stay anywhere else whenever we visit Paris. The Marais neighborhood is not only charming and full of interesting things to do, it is friendly and easy to find your way around in. The hotel's staff is friendly and helpful and the rooms and common areas are superbly kept. The decor couldn't be better and the hotel couldn't be more conveniently located as a base from which to visit the rest of Paris. On our last visit, we promised ourselves we'd make an effort to scout out other neighborhoods and hotels for subsequent trips but the more we think about it, it is unkilely we will stay anywhere else.

    ... a somewhat facetious reference to the throngs of flea-ridden hippies 'tripping' their way around developing countries in an attempt to achieve some sort of nirvana, but that's not to say that travel has not contributed to knowing thyself. For example, spending the best part of my first day in Paris at Musee d' Orsay and Musee du Louvre, or more precisely, in the queues to get into Musee d' Orsay and Musee du Louvre, confirmed my long-held suspicion that ...

    From Arras we headed further south to Paris and we were quickly getting used to the French roads, although it must be said that French drivers are very impatient; what would be an easy lane manoeuvre on an English motorway always turns out to be quite a battle in France.

    Well, I made it to Paris in one piece. I didn't really get much sleep on the plane due to having an aisle seat, but oh well. I managed to find the right metro line and make it to where I will be staying for the next few days.

    All of the streets here seem very narrow, and sort of dirty. I haven't made it ...
