Hotel La Demeure
Travel Blogs from Paris
So, an early start to the day! Up at 3, with the taxi arriving at the hotel just before 4 this morning. The taxi was slightly cheaper than we'd thought it would be, so we have some Russian currency left over! The flight was pleasant, but we've both been tired this afternoon. Paris is very nice, the weather is beautiful. We just did some washing and …
Hi From Paris
Well after a very stessful morning in London on our way to Paris. Long story but will explain when we return, missed 2 trains but finally arrived in Paris late afternoon on Monday.We had a lovely few days in Paris – saw the Eifel Tower and all the sites there are to see in Paris. We went to Moulin Rouge on Thursday night and …
... a playground painted on the ground. There was a yellow maze, a green rope maze, and three different ways of hopscotch all painted on the ground. Off to the side there was also a set of monkey bars. One little and one taller. I kept trying to jump and reach the taller one which I couldn't really get to by sending on my feet. After a while I finally jumped and my hands grabbed the slippery wood. Livvy I also played a game always do is stick onto the hopscotch and tried to ...
... onto Blvd de Clichy which heads into the area known as Piggale that is well know for the Moulin Rouge and some other less reputable establishments. Instead of continuing east on Clichy we head north and arrive at a bridge that goes over the famous Montmartre Cemetery. We walk down the stairs at the bridge and enter a very strange and fascinating world. The cemetery was built in an old rock quarry so it is below street level on three sides and ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel La Demeure Paris
Homey and Family run
We were worried about paying big prices for a horrible hotel in Paris and took the advice of a fellow trip advisor and booked La Demuere. It was a lovely small hotel in a good location with a Metro a few metres away. Family run business, great breakfast, clean, very helpful on reception and spoke english - a rareity in Paris. Small room but thats Europe. Would highly recommmend.
The report from the NZ reviewer is on the mark. We spent four nights at La Demeure in Sept '04 -- two adults and two children in a family room (actually a two room unit and quite spacious).
Not the fanciest hotel, but is a good middle of the road place to stay. The price is right and the location is great. It's not in the city center, but the walk from the hotel to Notre Dame is nice. The walk from the hotel to Notre Dame is definetely doable morning and evening. If you want to go further, you can always catch a cab from there. The room we had was average for French standards, but it was clean, with a nice breakfast in a safe area of the city.
I picked this hotel in Paris off the advice of Trip Advisor comments. Overall it was a good hotel and reasonably priced. The staff spoke great English and were very helpful - a real must if your French isn't great. Ask for a room with a view over the rooftops of Paris - it doesn't cost extra.
My wife and I spent 5 days at La Demeure and had a geat time. Our room had a balcony overlooking Paris. The place is very neat and the owners (father and son team) are a fountain of knowledge and did everything they could to make our stay better. They obviously really care about their guest. We got to know some hidden places only local knows and really enjoyed everyday of our stay. We will recommend La Demeure to our friends who want to have THE real Paris experience.
You've got to be kidding!
This place is a dump! unfriendly staff and the room smelled horrible:the shower leaks all over the floor! and breakfast was the bare minimum and not a good value at all !!
The saddest thing of all, of course, was that we booked this hotel on the recommandations of the guides (the hotel is mentioned everywhere): Maybe it's time for an update guys!
one night and we were out of there !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We had a super time. The hotel staff was extraordinarily welcoming. Very willing to accommodate and please. The hotel was neat as a pin. We couldn't have been better treated. We would definitely recommend.
Friendly staff, nice location
Stayed here in January 2004 after I saw a review at timeout, lovely hotel... the pictures you see on the websites like expedia really depict it nicely.The staff are so nice, perfect English at reception and very keen to help. Location is a bit out of the centre of Paris but the Metro station "Les Gobelins" on Line 7 is just 3mins walk away on the same street.Rooms are nice, especially the top floor where we were looking out over the Parisian rooftops. Lot's of pillows on the beds which make it look nice, it was comfy too although not huge. Rooms were of a reasonable size. Only downside was the shower you have to hold - quite a common occurance though I believe.Check the photos on the website and if it looks to your taste - book it!
Lovely above average 3 star hotel
Stayed in the Latin Quarter this September. Even though I called the day before we left to confirm our prepaid reservation, The Comfort Inn rue Mouffetard (3 star) was full for our first night and sent us by taxi to the Demeure. What a lovely surprise! Nice modern hotel with a friendly french atmosphere. The weather was still warm and this hotel had air conditioning which the Comfort Inn did not. The staff is very helpful and eager to help with any tourist questions. Will definitely stay at the Demeure on my next trip.
We booked this hotel at the last minute recently (they had just had a cancellation on a triple room) and did so not knowing what to expect other than this was a 3 star Paris Hotel. The hotel is lated on St. Marcel right on the border of the 13th and 5th (Latin Quarter) arrondisments. The hotel we found out was formerly another hotel and has recently been gutted and completely re-done. It was virtually like a brand new hotel. The hotel shows well from the outside and is in a very safe area halfway between Les Gobbelins & St. Marcel metro stations. The hotel lobby is very nicely done in dark wood tones and is brand new. This hotel is owned by a father/son team who are very hospitable and speak very good English. The elevator is typical Paris - small, but it worked just fine. The room we were given was adequate in size, but most importantly - it was SPOTLESS. Being new, the hotels walls and furniture look fresh and clean and newly painted. The private bathrooms are lovely with all brand new fixtures and everything is modern. There are TVs in all rooms, with at least one station in almost any language you care to enjoy. Our room unfortunately had a hand held shower, however, we noticed other rooms had shower heads affixed to the wall which is a plus. The breakfast room is very nice, however at 12 Euros a person, I'd suggest skipping it. The staff are all very nice and you're made to feel very, very welcome. If you're considering this hotel, feel confident in booking here. It is a superior 3 star property in a nice safe area with excellent management and its so clean and new and fresh looking. I will definitely stay again and I have no hesitiation in reccomending it!
