Hotel Les Jardins du Marais
Travel Blogs from Paris
Today we said goodbye to England and travelled on the Eurostar to Paris. We had a very busy last two days in England. All of Thursday was spent in Bath. Our first stop was the Roman Baths which were incredible and we were very impressed with how the baths and associated archeological finds are presented to visitors to make it all come to life. We …
... metro to the Sacre-Coeur. I've never seen anything so amazing. I've also never been so ****** off by so many stairs but I made it lol. Thought I was gonna die. The view from the top is insane. Can see so much of Paris. Went to the markets and wanted a drawn portrait so much but I didn't want it to get crinkled or wrecked. Will deff need to return. Had a picnic dinner under the Eiffel Tower and the went ...
... seafood restaurant. We got to our huge cottage on Tuscany and we spent the next hour and a half playing hide and go seek on the huge property. We walked to go see some sheep and saw them and saw some horses. It was a super long and uneventful day.
... real life. And when the sun comes through, it projects all of the colored glass onto the grey walls and makes them look magical. Seeing the huge mosques in Morocco, the ruins of the massive Temple in Jerusalem, and the huge Hindu temples in Sri Lanka, it is so strange to be struck each time at how intense peoples' convictions are for their religion, and how beautifully their faith is manifested in these gorgeous places of worship. It is so evident in the portrayal of the ...
... area and had a walk along the waterfront. Beaches are a funny mixture of rocks and san at the South end. There is a strip of sand and then rocks running into the sea with a few places where you can have a paddle or a swim. As you move North the rocks fade away and there are large stretches of sandy beach.
We walked until lunch seemed like a good idea. The 3 ladies shared two jugs of Sangria and ...

Other Guests Noisy, Family Got No Sleep
We went for Thanksgiving with our children; the room was perfect for our needs with bunkbeds (all kids love bunk beds) and a small closet kitchennette.HOWEVER, the hotel was also filled with mobs of Asian tourists who played cards LOUDLY all night, every night. We complained several times to management, but even they couldn't/woundn't control the noise (from such a lucrative market?.) Also, we could not be moved to another similar room...so we didn't get much sleep. Ever travel overseas with young (6 & 8) children who can't get to sleep? Not a great experience. Would not stay again at this hotel. Otherwise, PARIS is great for kids - Notre Dame, the Eiffel Tower, the gardens/play areas (try the Palais Royale and hang out with the French children after school.)
This was a lovely hotel! Our room was quiet and large, gorgeous bathroom, the breakfast was huge and delicious, and we loved being able to eat outside in the courtyard. Easy, short walk down the road to the Metro stop. We'd go back!
Small,but clean and friendly
I stayed at this hotel in late December 2002 through early January of 2003. The staff was friendly and very helpful,especially as I and my mother tried to determine how to work the heater! The room was small,but it was clean and the housekeeper came everyday and the restroom was always cleaned properly. The hotel also had a tasty American breakfast and there was a nice Italian cafe across the street and a nice cafe with excellent steak on the corner(the hotel restaurant was under renovation).Overall,this was an average ,clean hotel for budget travellers.
Quiet & Comfortable
This property was clean, comfortable, and very well located for my interests. Kitchen facilities were not
large, but just right to prepare a quick snack or lite meal.
Room was not large, but certainly adequate for one person. Front staff were exceptionally helpful at all times. Excellent full American breakfast buffet. Have stayed in many different hotels in Paris over the years and this one takes first prize for quietness!! Plan to return.
Suites, my eye!
The "suite" was a small "L" shaped room with one small double bed and a some bunk beds. There was barely enough room to put our suitcases. Location is marginal at best...NO decent restaurants or attractions within walking distance. Hotel room was very new, and clean. Breakfast was VERY expensive. I would not recommend these accomodations. I have been to Paris many times and this was an unpleasant surprise.
I stayed here xmas 2001. I would never stay here again. Tiny rooms. Terrible disgusting beds. Like thin pieces of foam. My big bed was two little ones shoved together. They both sagged in middle from cheapness and age. Mostly unfriendly staff. Very unfriendly breakfast staff. Tiny lousy bathrooms. Oh, and I had a junior suite. What if I had just a room? Scary thought.
I stayed here for a week over the summer while traveling through Europe. It's a nice THREE STAR hotel (don't expect anything fancy). The staff is friendly, and the rooms were big, but not American Suite size. We had four people in a room, and there was plenty of space. There is a grocery store down the street, so we made use of out kitchenette. I loved the location, it was quiet, the courtyard and breakfast was nice, it's walkable to many locations, and the Metro is steps from hotel. My only complaint was that the air conditioning was weak, but it was still better than nothing!
Don't waste your money
Don't waste your money on this hotel! "All-suite" is not what you think it is. Our room was tiny, the sheets were dirty, the towels were older than rags, there was no ventilation in the bathroom - which made the shower curtains stink, which made the entire room stink, and we noticed that they didn't clean the bathtub the whole time we were there. It made us wonder what else they didn't clean...We would have found another hotel, but we were charged for our entire stay up front (and we were on a budget honeymoon.) Lastly, we had a room by the hall door, which woke us up at night whenever someone went through it. And customer service? WHAT customer service??
Next visit to Paris, we'll spend a little more, but at least we'll feel rested and clean!
I was doing my summer studies in Paris with my classmates and the hotel was located in the center. All of us were very satisfied with the resources available while staying at this hotel. Sightseeing is the best way to get a closer look into the architecture, historical and adventurous city. The last day of our staying we had a small party in the courtyard and the staff offered us some snacks and enjoyed having us at the hotel. Nice trip!!!
