Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Beaubourg Paris
We stayed at this hotel for 6 nights in a twin room and had the advantage of trying 2 rooms - on the ground floor and the 1st floor.
The access to the hotel is a bit awkward, as it appears to be in an alley (although it is a 1-way street). Not the most welcoming greeting. When you enter the lobby for the first time, the "hotel smell" is a bit off-putting, but after you enter your room, it is fine.
Everything here is small - the elevator, your room, the TV. But they all work. The bedroom and bathroom are quite clean. There is a mini-bar to store your water and some fruits that you can buy at Ed's, a grocery store on Renard St., about 2 blocks north of the hotel.
The bedroom is a bit dim for reading (your guidebooks). The mirror-doored wardrobe closet is just adequate for 2 persons. The TV has only a few basic channels, mostly in German.
The mattresses were comfortable and the crisp linens quite nice.
The shower in the bathroom is a bit tricky. It's not meant to be suspended from above but rather held in one hand. The hair dryer is one of those vaccum-tube models but it does the job. You should bring your own soaps, shampoos and facecloth.
When the room is air-conditioned, it is quite comfortable. At times, it felt like they had turned it off at the reception, but that's the cynic in me talking.
The staff is indifferent and offhand, but it seems to be the general Paris attitude.
For 112Euros per night, staying in this central quarter was a good deal.
Romantic Hotel in a Perfect Location
I chose the hotel for it's location, Le Marais/Beaubourg. This area, in my opinion, is the prettiest and funkiest in Paris. I chose it for it's charm, many of the walls are original old stone, the ceilings are beamed and there are little wrought iron balconies at the full length windows. The reception staff were helpful and polite and the rooms were kept spotlessly clean. But back to the location, don't just head on the metro to the big tourist attractions, make some time to wander through the streets surrounding the hotel, rue Vieille du Temple with amazing zinc bars and cafes. The rue des Francs Bourgeois with it's gorgeous boutiques and then come to the Place de Vosges, the perfect place to sit in the sun with your picnic that you have picked up at one of the fantastic boulangeries and fruit shops. If you have been to Paris and done the big attractions this is the perfect location to chill out, drink wine sitting at a pavement cafe, watch the locals, go to great restaurants and shop till you drop for original clothes, jewellry and home interiors. Oh, and the museums are great too. All in all, this hotel is ideal for it's location and price. It is also romantic with bags of charm and character. The only hotel I have been to in Paris that I would go back to and the only location that I will ever stay in again in Paris!
Hotel Beaubourg was great
We just returned from a three night stay at Hotel Beaubourg with our two teenaged children. We were given two rooms side by side which was perfect. The location was fantastic, price good, three blocks from the Metro and an easy walk to Notre Dame and the river. It was clean and was quiet every night. Just down the street was an area (Rue Rambuteau)for buying bread (boulangerie), wine, cheese (fromagerie), etc. everything you'd need for a great picnic. We would definitely go back to Hotel Beaubourg.
LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION
A 5 minute stroll to Notre Dame, a 20 minute rollerblade to the Eiffel Tower, fall out of bed and you are in the Georges Pompidou Museum. What more could you want?
Stayed here for 4 nights in June. This was my second time at the hotel. The hotel itself is quite charming. The first time I stayed my room and bath were on the small side (usual for Europe) but the most recent time both were bigger. Rooms were clean, public areas nice, and the hotel is on a quite side street right next to the Pompidou Center (hideous, in my view). The people are nice and helpful without being overly friendly. For the price and location, it is hard to do much better in Paris.
Location is excellent, hotel is as expected in Paris
As far as the hotel goes, it is what you would expect in Paris - a small room without many of the standard amenities you would expect from a hotel in the US - no gym, no landscaping, etc. Yes the elevators are small but I can live with that. The staff speaks english and are always helpful. Breakfast at the hotel can be purchased at an additional cost but I don't think it is neccessary - there are many places to eat around the neighborhood. The place is clean and is an excellent starting point for your vacation in Paris. First, it is a 5 minute walk to a train stop that will get you to the Louvre and Champ D'Ellysees in 10 minutes. There is another train stop less than 10 minutes away that will take you to the Versaille Gardens, Eifffel Tower, and the B RER line to either of the major airports and the Paris Nord train station. Also, you can walk to Notre Dame in 10 minutes, and the Seine is a 5 minute walk away. There are plenty of places to eat but not too much shopping. Less than 1/2 block from the hotel is a supermarket where you can buy water and fruits and snacks.
Charming rooms, good price
Stayed with three friends in the Hotel Beaubourg in December, 2003. After location and price, we primarily chose this hotel based on its web site and reviews. It did not disappoint. We stayed in two separate rooms, and found the price of having a twin room versus a double w/shower was significant, and well worth the 12 euros per night difference. The twin room had more walking space, higher ceilings, and a bathroom about three times larger. The rooms were well decorated, clean, and the service staff was very friendly. The location was very convenient to shops and the subway, and the price is hard to beat!
Nice place, great location.
Very nice long weekend at a well located hotel. Excellant value for money in high priced Paris! The front rooms get a lot of street noise if the windows are open. On warm days, ask for a room in the back. I'd send Mom here, so it's recommended.
Lots to do
Rooms are adequate size, especially for Paris. Location is great, as within a 5 minute walk there are cafes, restaurants, Pompidou centre, metro stop, supermarket, cash machine, bakery. Staff was friendly.
Room size was adequate, beds were comfortable and the room was clean. Continental breakfast was included :coffee, tea or orange juice;croissant; and french bread only. Christine at the front desk was VERY helpful. Good location to the metro, museums, the Seine River and other sights . We had a front room and experienced two noisy nights from the street outside the hotel. There is a bar across the street. Recommend a room at the back of the hotel.

... paintings in the main one over the altar and the nave. Quite modest in comparison to St Peters in Rome or the Palais Versailles. Spent a bit of time wandering the streets of Montmartre. Certainly is an interesting part of Paris with its narrow streets and steps down to the rest of town. Managed to go in the opposite direction to where we wanted to go and ended up catching the metro to our destination. Map reader had a bad day! Had a look at ...

Next on our list for the day was to meet Alan & Lindy Clark at the Metro near Le Louvre. Alan & Lindy were friends from my childhood days in Sale and have been living in Paris for just over a year! We just managed to catch them before they ...
... instead and am just as satisfied. I highly recommend it when you visit Paris. I had a quick lunch and coffee at a cafe then headed out for Saint Chappelle, the chapel of King Louis XIV, built in 1206 or thereabouts. It is known for its 15 huge stained glass windows which tell the whole story of the Bible in glorious colour. And it is breathtaking. The windows have been undergoing restoration since 2008, lead has been replaced, each piece of glass cleaned by hand using ...
... several times over a 40-year period, for one reason or another, we never made it up to the top of the Eiffel Tower. One major problem: the 3-hour waiting line. We skirted this by reserving tickets on the Internet, a service not available on our previous trips. As is sometimes the case for hyped tourist attractions, we were prepared to be underwhelmed.
Boy, were we ...
... surprised that I loved it. This style of cafe and the ambience it provided and the coffee it produced, reminded me of home so much, it really brought me back to some of the best evenings I've had back in Aus. So we placed ourselves outside so we could people watch the Parisians go by and eat our bagels. Just as we were about to leave we decided on getting another coffee for the road, my shout this ...
