Why so many positive reviews???
Very close to the metro stop...but also very close to a small park where vagrants and "town drunks" sleep...this hotel is not exactly in the midst of the action. If you are looking to do some sightseeing in Paris...this is not your spot. It's a good 10 minute subway ride away from the city center. The hotel room is very very very very small, but that was expected. I am 5 foot 10...I guess relatively tall?...but way too tall to fit comfortably on the toilet which is jammed in a corner. The room WAS clean and newly refurnished and I had an okay stay until my checkout at 6.45am before I needed to go to the airport.
When I checked into the hotel, I asked if breakfast was included and told that it was. So...each day, I ate a yogurt and drank so really terrible coffee knowing that I would eat much more while exploring Paris. The cold buffet is yogurt, 2 types of dry cereal, some ham and cheese and some mini croissants. Not terribly appealing when there is so much good food around but since it was free, I thought I'd eat something. When I checked out four days later, the EXTREMELY rude night manager told me that breakfast wasn't included and that I owed 10 euro (over $12) for each day. Even when I explained to him that I was told breakfast was included...he didn't care. I then waited 30 minutes for the day manager to arrive (the woman who told me that it was included with the cost of my room) and she said that she must have made a mistake. I was irate...they were incredibly rude, I was late for my flight and I would never recommend a hotel with this kind of service to anyone. Tempted to rate the hotel terrible...
our hotel is located in very nice lively area well knowes in Paris for the tranquility , the grand hotel dore is only 5 minute form the bastille area and the viaduc des arts .
Our rooms are not small they are in the average size of the hotels in Paris i udnerstand that it can be small for people who are use to Paris , but in Paris the volume are smaller .
Which is more shocking is why you did not ask during your stay a bigger room. As in any hotel we have different types of rooms, and we could have propose you the possibility of an upgrade.
Why did not you complain about the coffee if it was so disgusting?
Further, you forgot to mention that the hotel has AIRCONDITIONING, safe , mini bar , flat screen 20 inc, satellite TV,free wifi nice furniture and garment , the latest technologies of thermostatic plug in the bathroom, mosaique on the floor and ceramic!!
I don't think that we can say all of that about a bad hotel
When you arrived you signed a check-in-form mentioning the price of the room and that the breakfast was not included. It was also clearly written on your booking form that the breakfast was not included.
it very sad for us to see such commentary as we are always to do our best to make happy our customer , but when customer wait to come back home tho mentionne to complain unfortunatly for us it is to late
Great comfortable little hotel!
My boyfriend and I booked this hotel as part of a holiday package after reading a few of the reviews which praised it and gave it quite good reviews. This hotel is located right next to the metro station (less than 100 metres away) and as the metro runs till 12.30am every night, this made going back after a night out quite convenient. The room we stayed in was small but it seems this is the way with most Parisian hotels. The cleanliness was faultless, the air-conditioning was quick and efficient and all in all we enjoyed our stay at the hotel very much. The hotel staff were also very friendly and spoke English to us, there are restaurants, bars and bakeries (one across the road does amazing little fancy cakes) and the shower in the hotel was very good!
"cosy" is an understatement!
I booked the hotel based on the favourable reviews on this site. I cannot say that I agree with the opinions expressed. Although the hotel was clean and functional, it was extremely basic. The rooms are tiny. The minibar was empty. In the morning the breakfast was in a tiny space infront of the reception and it felt very cramped. Most of the staff were friendly and helpful. the proprietress seemed stressed and a bit short with us on arrival but she mellowed and was fine afterwards. I wouldn't go back there due to the lack of space. Even the lift was barely big enough for 2 people.
Modern but cramped
We stayed at the Hotel Grand Dore in Paris for 2 nights.
If you get room 648 ask for another as it was the smallest room in the building. In fact, this room was so small you couldn't open the wardrobe door as the bed was in the way, pretty bad when you consider the room/hotel has recently been renovated.
My husband and I decided to book a trip to Paris to celebrate our first wedding anniversary and we had a fantastic time! We were a little nervous about booking accommodation through an internet booking service especially as neither of us were familiar with Paris!
The hotel was fabulous. It was well situated (a 10 minute walk from the Gare de Lyon), a thirty second walk from the metro station and a quiet and pleasant neighbourhood.
The staff were friendly, English speaking and most of all helpful providing us with maps and directions when we needed them.
The room was cosy, clean and modern and had clearly been recently refurbished. A great bathroom and shower.
The breakfast was wonderful too - pastries, cereal, fruit and yoghurts with great coffee and tea. It was also served until 10am - brilliant when you're on holiday!
This was the best place we've ever stayed in Paris. The staff was extremely helpful and had everything ready in our room AIr con free wifi access flat screem! ouah for that price
we ve paid 130$.
This was our first to this hotel it will certainly not be the last. we found the hotel staff very warm and welcoming. we will definately use this hotel again

Begin the piling up again of the many layers needed for the walk back (previously stripped off while running to see the Mona Lisa.). It's been typically 5 layers, a scarf, gloves and some weird thing I wrap around my head to keep warm.

... It went for a good 4hours. After the walk we went back to the hostel for a nap before we caught the metro out to Montmartre District for another Sanderman's tour around the red light district. Of course the tour started at Moulin Rouge, the best place to start the red light district tour. On the tour we went a suburban vineyard, the last surviving windmill, Van Gogh's house and heard the story of the headless saint. We even went up to ...
We started our day with lunch by the St. Michel metro station. We tried one of the nearby restaurant's set menu meals. I had Frog legs to start, Duck Confit, and and creme brulee for dessert. Afterwards, we made a quick stop to check out the "new" Shakespeare and Company bookshop.

Not to be put off by such a trifle detail, I blagged my way to a free ticket using a Scottish accent (having convincing red hair does have its perks after all), my bank card as proof I’d at least been to the UK and my Australian license as proof of age - success!

After our big day yesterday, we are having a slow start today. Every morning, John goes to one of the local bakeries and buys fresh baguettes and the kids have nutella on it. We stayed in till after lunch and then headed off to the Arc de Triomphe. Again our trusty Metro brought us out right underneath the Arc and we happily wandered around admiring this amazing landmark. We all decided that our weary travel legs could not ...
