Photos of Burgundy Hotel
Historical Traveler Reviews The Travellers Rest Inn Grasmere
My husband and I as well as our 18 month old daughter recently spent 3 nights at the Burgundy. I do agree with some previous comments in terms of the "age" of the rooms; however, we had a huge room, with a couch, two chairs, a coffee table and a desk, and did not ask for a particular room. The staff was also very helpful with any of our needs. That said, the best thing about this hotel is its location. It's in the heart of Paris, and most of the biggest tourist attractions are walkable from the hotel.
Extremely disappointed at the Burgundy
I reserved two rooms at the Burgundy Hotel in Paris. The Lobby and restaurant looked nice, but that is IT! The rooms were very small, maybe 9x10ft. The Bedspreads were stained and VERY old. The bathrooms even had mold in the shower. The rooms had not been vacumed apropriatly, as we found candy wrappers at the foot of one of the beds. I couldn't walk without shoes on that stained carpet! The door to the rooms were so ancient that I felt that any one could break in very easily. The walls are so thin, that you can hear noise from the other rooms very clearly. One of the staff told us that we could get a taxi to take us to the airport for about 50 euros, so we asked him to get the taxi for us. He went ahead to order an VAN FOR EIGHT persons, which ended up costing us 75 euros. and they knew that there were only FOUR of us. At the time we couldn't refuse, because it was too close to the time when we needed to be at the airiport. Our whole experience there was AWFUL . DON'T TRUST THE PICTURES OF THE ROOMS AT THEIR WEBSITE!!! They don't look ANYTHING like it. I hope this helps any of you to NOT CHOOSE IT.
Must depend on the room
The hotel is renovating. I got a "deal" but it was one of the yet to be renovated rooms and right next to consruction which started by 0830 and continued until 1700.
Also the "bathtub" was the oddest I have encountered in 20 plus trips to Europe - about 3 feet long with bumps and ridges on the bottom!
Location is the only virtue
If you are most interested in location and a place to just crash every night, the location of the Burgundy is fantastic. It is an easy walk to most of the major attractions, and close to the Metro.
However, our room was very small even for Europe with an exceptionally small phone booth like shower. Hardly, the type of room one would spend a lot of time in. There is probably a difference in each room, so I would have complained had I intended to stay for a week or more. It is a very old building so the floors are very creaky and the walls are paper thin. I didn't expect a modern hotel. However, late at night when the revellers returned from the bars, it was difficult to sleep. The small double bed was comfortable.
The staff was very friendly and multi-lingual except for the lone female attendant that I encountered who did not speak much English - or pretended not to - and displayed the stereotypical French attitude toward foreigners.
I could not recommend this hotel.
Great Place, Wonderful Service
This hotel was incredibly nice compared to other hotels in the same price range in Paris. We also stayed in two other hotels during our time there and this one was by far the best. The rooms are small by our standards, but about the same size as they are anywhere else in paris.
The cleanliness is unmatched. Everything was spotless. The bathroom tiles sparkled and the tub was incredible. Moreover, the bathroom was huge and very comfortable. The service staff was extremely friendly. If servicepeople saw you in the hall they'd come and carry our bags for you, and when we tried to tip them, they refused it. At one point we needed to give a message to some friends and were unable to reach them by telephone. The desk workers offered to keep calling and give them the message. Of course, our friends got the message and when we returned to the hotel a message was waiting for us saying everything was all set.
Great place, would stay here again!
We booked this place through AAA for our honeymoon. We had a beautiful room open to a courtyard. The breakfast buffet was excellent (cheesey eggs!). The location is great, very convenient to get around Paris.
Good restaurants within walking distance, too.
The hotel was in a great location. The room was SMALL, However, it was VERY CLEAN. It's a good choice.
I loved this charming hotel
We booked this hotel through Expedia last year for our honeymoon. This hotel was perfect. We didn't want something that looked slick and brand new, like a Hilton. We wanted something Parisian and I think we found it.
The elevator was tiny, and the hallways creaked a bit when you walked through them, it was obviously an old building, which was right up our alley. The concierge was very helpful, particularly in light of our execrable French.
The rooms were cozy yet airy. There were large French windows that opened up, allowing a nice breeze in. There were window boxes filled with geraniums, that looked out into other buildings. It's a lively street, and we woke in the mornings to the sound of Parisians on their way to work.
When we return to Paris we plan to stay in this hotel again. We really loved its charm.
This hotel has a wonderful location with two metro stops nearby and everything within walking distance. The rooms were spacious and clean and the breakfast was an excellent buffet. The reception staff were fluent several languages and eager to help with anything we asked, especially Bruno and Mavis. The real surprise is that this is rated as a 3 star - we've stayed many times in Paris and the Burgundy was miles better than any other three star we've stayed in.
The burgundy's bad
You pay for the location of this old hotel. The rooms are small and the bathrooms ancient with no venelation at all. It's not worth the price.

... was located at numerous restaurants and cafes with a desire to keep the gastronomy as un-touristy as possible but definitely French. Great food and superb people everywhere. The plate du jour was always worth asking for and it gave you two courses for the price of one. Plenty of duck, in many different forms, confit, pan fried and plenty of liver. The locals all took to our fine brutalistic non-existent pigeon French offerings with gusto and unfailing sympathy. Doreen got air ...
