      Historical Traveler Reviews Grand Hotel Dore Paris

      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.

      Great hotel!


      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!

      Lovely hotel


      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

      Cosy Hotel And Frendly Staff


      The staff was very friendly, the hotel was very clean and the location was great with a subway station 1/2 block away and a bus stop closer than that. The best feature of this hotel is the included a free wifi access and flat screem tv .

      Hotel arranged pickup and return to airport which was great and good value. Would recommend it.

      After settling in, we went to dinner at La Rotounde, which is very near the Louvre. This is the same place we stopped on the first night we were here in 2010. It is very close to where we are staying and the food is good and reasonable. What we are enjoying the most here is the fresh produce. After a bite to eat we walked to Le Jardin ...

      ... relatively new building, a fitness centre, that has no ‘artwork’ at all, money would have changed hands for that and a substantial amount Eglantine thought, just no other way that it could have been ignored. Other wall art elsewhere though was trompe l’oeil work on a building dating from the days when there was a window tax, it has a cat in a window painting, very effective too.

      The main street was busy, and there are obviously ...
