Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel de Varenne Paris
Great spot in Paris
Reasonable price, quiet and safe neighborhood.
Close to metro entrance and grocery/patisseries.
Smaller room but very clean and extremely well kept up-has everything you need.
Great hotel in 7eme arrondissement
This hotel was the best!!!! We were there for 5 days, had air conditioning thank goodness. The weather was pretty warm and sticky so it was wonderful having the coolness of the air.
Also their is a small refrigerator which was wonderful, went to the little grocery store on the same block, bought our water etc. Plus a boulangerie a few doors down, bought the wonderful bread. Everything is close by, the hotel in a very quiet neighborhood. I would definately stay there again.
Plus staff was wonderful
Wonderful, Comfortable, Courteous
My wife and I just returned after 4 nights in the Hotel de Varenne, and we will consider it our "home in Paris" going forward. The room was spacious, clean and well-appointed, and overlooked the beautiful garden courtyard, a hallmark of the hotel. The staff was professional, courteous and very willing to assist in making dinner and other arrangements. We loved the location in the peaceful 7th arrondisement, just slightly off the beaten (and noisy) path, but just a short, pleasant stroll from the Boulevard St. Germain, Rodin Museum, Eiffel Tower and metro. The neighborhood, including the excellent boulangerie two doors down, is very Parisian and authentic (ie. void of souvenir shops).
Great hotel, quiet street
We stayed here for the first time and had a great week long stay. By far the friendly staff of the hotel was most delightful; they were always attentive and friendly. It's not the most ideal location, as you will have to travel to get to the sights but it is close to two metro stops (Varenne and Assemble National). On the upside is the friendly supermarket right down the street - makes for an inexpensive meals and snacks! Rooms were clean and well-decorated, but the hand-held shower was certainly a challenge for us. The Hotel's courtyard is a wonderful touch.
Peace at the End of The Day
2 middle-aged girly-girls had plenty of room in the Superior Twin room and Bathroom. Hand-held shower took a little effort, but the ease of communication with the staff made it worth it. At the end of a long day, we turned into the garden of the hotel and said, "Ahhhhhhh!"
Great value in Paris
Very quiet, clean, great location, friendly management.
Just down the street from the Rodin Museum with its lovely garden, and walking distance from the Seine, Invalides, Louvre, and other sites. Highly recommended.
Excellent place to stay
Had a great stay here. Paid extra for a superior room - still reasonable for Paris. Room was big and had good bathroom - even a decent shower - a rarity for a french hotel. Immediate area is quite but there are plenty of small local shops close by. Each reach of Metro stop and like walking close enough to a lot of sights. We'll be back.
Very nice Hotel
The Hotel De Varenne is set in a beautiful area of Paris. Right around the corner is the National Assembly and many government buildings which are closely guarded by police making it a very safe area. The price of 140 euro divided by three people was very reasonable for the area. The staff spoke decent English and were as helpful as possible for the exception of one rude man. The Hotel has a pretty little garden to relax. The rooms were quit large and clean as were the bathrooms. There is a Metro stop less than a five minutes walk away, which was very convenient. All in all a very nice hotel.
Superb in every way
Hotel de Varenne fulfills every expectation as a marvelous well managed, well maintained hotel. From the minute you arrive in the beautiful side courtyard entrance until the day you depart you will delight in the sheer joy of a superbly managed hotel. The location is magnificant: a nice walk past the Rodin Museum, with a view of the Invalides, to the metro. The staff of this hotel deserves every compliment. The entire facility reflects the great care and pride of its owner. The place absolutely sparkles! There is a pastry shop next door, a neighborhoold grocery nearby, a marvelous restaurant up the street, and a couple of fantastic delicatessens. I shall never look for another hotel in Paris! This is the place to be when I return.
Good value hotel in an expensive area
I've just spent a few days at the Hotel de Varenne. I'd certainly recommend it if you're looking for a pleasant, reliable, standard hotel at a reasonable price (particularly as these seem to be difficult to find in Paris!). Although there's nothing very exciting about the Varenne, the rooms are pleasant and well-kept and the staff were friendly and helpful. We had a 'superior' double which though not huge was big enough and had a good bathroom with proper bath and separate toilet. In general, it was very quiet and peaceful but on the morning we left they were refitting the one of the bannisters so there was a little disruption - it might be worth checking if they've finished this work when booking.
The location is very close to Les Invalides and the Musee d'Orsay and a pleasant walk to the Champs Elysee / Louvre but not quite as close to St Germain and the Latin Quarter as I had thought from looking on the map. The area is quiet, particularly at the weekend but the street has several excellent patisseries and there is a very good cafe on the square by the Assemblee National.

... the museum. It's a nice feature, entering from the pyramids. I knew there was no way of be able to see this whole museum, so I sit down and plan out where each of the exhibits I want to see, and once complete, I'll roam around a little more. First stop, Winged Victory. Situated atop of a grand stair case, you get to see how Magnificent this statue truly is. I take a moment, snap a few pictures, and head to the Mona Lisa. The Halls in the Louvre is gorgeous. Don't ...
... out for me. The weather has been around 25 so of course I do not have the cooler pants to wear, never seem to pack the right clothes, thankfully slightly cooler weather on the way. We have biscuits, crusty bread, cheeses, meats etc for tea in the apartment in the evenings as all tired at end of day. Tend to have main meal when we are out & about. All for now, hope you are all okay. Love you & miss you all very much. Mum xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo Love from Dad too Sent from my ...
... was held up by 100s of rollerbladers rollerblading around the city. Also bikes play a large part here, as they are trying to do in Melbourne but its not the same as here everything is congested no matter what time of day although traffic did look slightly less today. Saw a Segway tour as well. Really interesting. We retired from the field around 4.30pm and stopped for a reviving Chablis and lemonade ( not mixed) before shopping and picking up a couple of crepes.

... when it is raining? Shop of course. Al found "a dream come true" when we stumbled across a massive Kookai store. My dreams were much more easily achieved, on almost every street. Pastries, chocolates, sweets, everywhere! Ha-ha!
We visited the Musée du Parfum. We stumbled across a wonderful cafe called Le Pain Quotidien. We got saturated as we huddled under an umbrella when the heavens decided to open up.
... the poor taxi driver probably got the lowest fare ever. €6 but we had arrived. It was about 8:30pm, we checked in and went to our room. Very nice, a fridge and air conditioning. Thanks Wendy and Dave. Julie wondered where her brother and sister and law were when there was a knock on the door and there stood Michael and Carol. They have a room across the hallway. We started to compare experiences as we had not seen them since Ireland. We were ...
