Historical Traveler Reviews Taylor Hotel Paris
Little but very clean and good situation
The hotel is little but enough for sleep. It has a good situation, in the middle of three subway stations. I recommend it for 2 or 3 days. It's very clean and the staf very kind.
This is a very clean hotel. I've read the last comment and I just don't get it. To me the hotel was really nice and clean...
Anyway... Just a few words to tell you to go there. It isn't expansive and it is a very nice place. The Hotel Taylor in a 2 star but could pass 3 easily. The rrom are very clean a there are a lot of space in them. I've specially enjoy to sleep on their beds... :-)
Have a nice trip their
Just Stay Somewhere Else
This hotel is run by the same people who run and own Hotel Louxor. I was staying at their other hotel nextdoor (Hotel Louxor), then was switched to this one because I found bugs in my bed. Neither of these hotels have their act together. Just look at the photos I posted. This room (Rm. 201) had stains all over the walls and one huge disgusting stain near the radiator. The quilt had some gross looking stain on it, too. After the bug incident at their other hotel, I didn't dare sleep in the beds at this hotel.
The third and fourth floor entrances both have the flooring ripped up with patches of the old carpet left. See the photos to see what I'm talking about. Like Hotel Louxor, this hotel has poor to no lighting in the stairs and hallways that lead to the rooms.
They offer breakfast but after seeing the state of the rooms and hallways I wasn't confident enough in the cleanliness of the kitchen to eat a meal there.
I wanted to go to paris with my wife so we decided to book from internet. After few websites we found hotel Taylor, very cheap and it was nice looking. So we booked !!
But the next is more exciting, after arrived at the hotle, the good surprise was the size of our room, it was very big ! First good point. Then we asked the desk for some infos about the metro, the bus, (the french way to moove in paris), and the staff gave us so much data about every thing we nedeed we just didn't know how to thanks us. Second good point. Then we started to visit the city and what another good surprise, the hotel is near everything, close to the opera, close to the louvre and more than close to the republique. Third good point!
And I think that's enough to explain how much the trip was. A special thanks to Alain the receptionist who helped us a lot. I recomande strongly this hotel because it's an incredible offer.
Crap ahead. Money for nothing and unexisting services
Made the reservation weeks before, thinking it was a bargain. When arriving at the reception desk the depressed guy was discussing family affairs on the phone with his son and smoking at the same time, so it took 5 mins. before he noticed that I was there.
Then "your room will not be available before 3:00 PM" (it was 9:30 AM!) so I have to leave my luggage in the lobby, already busy with lots of other people luggage. Will they care if they take away some of my stuff? Anyhow people were sitting above the luggage, drinking and smoking, etc.
The VERY small lift will take you at the floor but then you see immediatly that you are in a trap: the corridors used to have carpet on it, but it's not anymore the case. Instead they put some pieces of carpet and you will drive your steps from one to next if you want to stay in in a "clean" surface.
Once inside the room you will see that the large double bed you requested for during reservation, was converted into twin beds, you may sleep in a narrow bed for the same price.
In the end when asking for a detailed invoice I was told that "they cannot produce any, as they work for the reservation company"
If you really need to be in the area, try to do your reservation at the Louxor hotel, next to it, but forget about this place. Anyhow the place is not any nice even though it's very quiet.
We thought we got a good deal 3 nights for the price of 2. We were wrong. The room was terrible, very unattractive outdated furnishings and terrible view of drab buildings. A very dirty feel, the entire hotel was quite dark, the flooring had been ripped up and bare concrete flooring throughout most levels. Stained wallpaper, mildewed shower curtain and black mold growing in shower and along baseboards. Very very small winding staircase, very small elevator can only hold 2 people with no luggage.
Apparently some rennovations are underway, a room on the 6th floor was cleaner and bigger with flooring in tact and cleaner bathroom.
The hotel is located on a small alley-type street. Homeless men sleeping on matresses on the street beside the entrance did not help the ambience.
Where's our reservation?
I booked three double rooms - for 6 adults - at this hotel in February and paid fully for it. As our flight was not landing at CDG until after 10 pm my daughter's boyfriend (who is French) telephoned the hotel 2 days prior to advise them of our late arrival - he was assured that there would be no problem. When we arrived - after midnight - tired, we were informed by the person on reception that there was only one room and that we would have to stay in a nearby hotel (the hotel little) for the night, return the next day when there would be three rooms. The alternative hotel was not nice - grubby rooms, stairs dimly lit and dirty carpets, etc., etc., the next morning one party member had a telephone call to her room telling her for us to stay at this hotel and not to return to the Hotel Taylor. As our booking was for the Hotel Taylor, we wanted to stay at the Hotel Taylor. We trudged back round to the hotel only to be informed by the same receptionist that there were no rooms for us. My daughter who also speaks fluent french informed him that our booking was made and paid for since last February and he told her that they had taken a booking for a party of 50 guests since last January - if that was the case then why take our booking and money ? We were given an alternative, either to stay at the hotel little or have one nights free accommodation on our next trip to Paris (my last being 1979!) - what was the guarantee that a room would be reserved for us on our next visit ? We opted for our money back - and a cheque was promised to be posted to the french party member, but will it ? There were now 6 people searching the area looking for a last minute hotel - thankfully the Holiday Inn had vacancies and was immaculate (which we should have booked originally). Due to this - our three day cheapy turned out to cost an arm and a leg
we stayed there in feb 2005, very welcoming reception, very close to metro which was the best way to get around and loads of fun. 20 mins walk form louve but get the metro any way. loverly room. good maid service. nice continental breakfast. yes there was bums sleeping in the street bout 100 meters from hotel but to be honest most of the streets in paris had people sleeping on them, none of them ever bothered us. well worth the price. a good size room. there are lots of loverly little resurants around the republique area and a super market close to hotel.the staff were very helpful in giving us maps and advising places to visit and telling us the best way to get there. FANTASTIC HOTEL IF YOU ARE GOING FOR A SHORT BREAK IN PARIS. WOULD RECOMMEND TO EVERY ONE AND WE ARE ALREADY PLANNING OUR NEXT TRIP TO PARIS STAYING AT THE SAME HOTEL.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
crap hotel. poor area. top floor double room, small was`nt the word. shower didnt work, only one english tv channel, no tea/coffee in room. bathroom size of a wardrobe, decor poor, need i go on. avoid like the plague. worst hotel we've ever stayed in. would have checked out after first night if we were back in ireland! picture on 0800paris-hotels of room must have shown the master suite, ours was half the size. go elsewhere or do what we did, forget the crappy breakfast, leave as early as possible and return @2am every night!
A quaint little hotel
I stayed at the Hotel Taylor in November of 2002. I paid 50 Euros a night (which was equivalent to the dollar at the time) for a two double bed ensuite room. The hotel, with an English speaking clerk, was not really close to any major attractions and there were a couple of bums living under an alcove up the street (I think they may have used the street as their own personal toilet but the bums themselves didn't bother us) The hotel was clean with adequate maid service and a free continental breakfast each morning. It also had a teensy little two person elevator which I thought was kinda cute. The hallways were a bit dark which made it somewhat hard to unlock your door but we didn't spend much time in the room at all. The Hotel Taylor is about a few blocks walk away from a subway stop, there are lots of little fast food joints nearby and some moderate shopping. Overall, it was worth the price. I'd stay there again.

Breakfast this morning at the hostel was a baguette and a croissant with butter and honey or jam, and coffee. It was amazing. I got some great tips on how to navigate through Paris on the metro lines (subways), and set out with no real goal in mind. I knew that if I could find the River Seine, which runs through the center of the city, I'd be fine. I took the metro to the Arc du Triomphe, and then started walking. I found some really cool buildings, a statue of Winston ...

... for shopping up the Champs-Elysee while Rob, the Kids and I headed for Ils Saint-Louis.
We had this romantic idea of hiring bikes for the four of us to ride around the Tulleries. On the way down rob asked the kids if they knew what the big building on the left was, he gave them the hint that it was now a gallery that started with L - Emerson nailed it - Louis Vuitton! The Velib system has a Petit version just for little kids that I found on the net this morning. Unfortunately my ...
... gem of a burger joint, it's the best meal I've had so far. As we line up feeling slightly under dressed old mate pings us in the corner of all corners, we aren't very happy as we can't even see the whole stage. Once the show begins with a catchy number we realise we basically have a private dancer at our table, right near the exit/entry point is where we are so every time a new act comes on or off they go past us, smiling, wishing they could be with us (I imagine this is ...
I forgot my pedometer but I think it was about 7 miles one way. Dianne and I shared a Picet of Sancerre then headed back home. We ate dinner at a neighborhood restaurant, the Jolie Boheme, maybe the best meal yet. I had cod with a sauce from heaven and escargot. Dianne, steak au poive with pomme fritte, and Dawn had omelette with pomme fritte. Pounds, pounds, ...
