This hotel has an outstanding location, beautiful rooms, great amenities and really wonderful people - helpful, friendly, great. They got our rooms all ready early yesterday and that was so terrific after getting in to be able to unpack and relax.

This hotel is just out of this world. And so central to everything. Just loved it.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Villa Mazarin Paris
Found this place on the internet and booked having read excellent reviews. It certainly lived up to its reputation - it was very hot in Paris so air conditioning was essential - tho' some directions on its use would have helped! Room was spacious and very comfortable and breakfast - included in overall price - was very good and served in room. Staff were very helpful - I just wish they would not insist on speaking English when they can see you want to speak in French. Will certainly return - price was a little higher than I had envisaged paying for trip but well worth extra expense especially given hot weather and excellent a/c. Its location is fantastic.
A great find for a decent Paris price (about EUR 190 per room). Good size rooms, king size bed, good shower, good air con, small LCD TV, comfy bed. Only thing is that there are no hotel facilities, as such (no restaurant -- you take breakfast in your room). But great area in Marais so no big deal. Ask for a room overlooking the courtyard -- the double glazing in the front of the hotel was fine until 6.30 am when the morning shop deliveries happened outside.
Location! Location! Location!
Could not ask for a better location in terms of getting around Paris and being able to enjoy the bustling Marais district! The staff are great. Thomas and Esther go out of their way to make you feel welcome and help you get acquainted with the city.
Rooms are on the small side, but everything is in Europe. They were clean, modern and updated.
I'll be back for sure!
Fantastic stay at Villa Mazarin
I decided to stay in this hotel because I love the Marais and found a great deal for this hotel on the web. The location is spectacular, right next to Hotel de Ville. The rooms combine modern elements (LCD TVs/ state of the art baths, complete soundproof, walls painted in deep colors--our floor was dark aubergine) with traditional touches (bed headboard and mirror in Empire style, cozy curtains etc.). The bed was divine: the ultra-comfortable mattress, 4 full-sized pillows and the bedding, which included a silky white sheet on top of the blanket and a chenille/silk throw to match the color of the walls, was luxurious and very tasteful. The room had complimentary coffee/tea. On top of this, the room was a great size for Paris! (and we stayed in their regular room; they also have duplexes and larger rooms). The staff could not be any nicer; so caring and professional. Overall, we had a fantastic time, thanks in no small part to this wonderful home away from home.
Awesome Place & Location
Newly rennovated wonderful hotel in the Marais near the Pompedeu Center. Excellent and helpful staff. Very nice quiet large rooms for a reasonable price. I will definitely be back.
Merci Beaucoup Villa Malraux!
Stayed at the Villa Malraux in December 2005 for 2 nights. Very impressed by the hotel.
We loved the art decor - different colours and art on each corridor. Our room was on the brown corridor. Perfect room size (for Paris!), comfortable bed & excellent facilities in the room. Hotel & room cleanliness was excellent. Their non smoking policy is such a plus.
The hotel is also in a perfect location for visiting all the wonderful shops, restaurants and cafe bars in the Marais area.
We were made to feel very welcome by all the staff. Extremely helpful and friendly.
Thank you Villa Malraux for such a pleasurable stay!
Spot on - at a price
Due to the Axial being full we stayed here for 3 nights at the end of February. It's pretty much ideal for us being well positioned in the heart of le Marais. It ticks all the boxes: Non-smoking throughout, clean stylish room and bathroom, fluffy towels, fast WiFi, comfortable bed, minibar, sink, kettle, iron, safe. All present and correct. Staff were charming and helpful (even humouring my awful attempts at French).
Like most hotels in the area there could be a little more space, and you will hear noise from the street should a siren come past, but this wasn't a big deal. Sound insulation between the rooms seemed good as the only sounds we heard were running water when in the bathroom.
Downsides? It's a bit dear compared to the Axial, but it's noticably better in pretty much every area apart from the lack of a restaurant. You can order breakfast in bed, though I can't comment on this as we took breakfast in the cafe next door.
We'll definitely stay again if we can run to the extra cash.
Nice hotel, stayed 6 nights in February, had the room #53 which was large enough comparing to many others in Europe. Good room especially for the price we were offered (220 euros for deluxe or superior, I do not remember exactly but they have two types of the rooms and that was not sandard for the price of standard). The location is great, staff is very helfull and nice, especially Thomas. Everybody speaks Englis. The only problem - it was a little bit cold in the bedroom upstairs and the climat control system had strange algo. The street may be noisy sometimes but the room is very quiet. I'll be recommending this hotel and will stay there when I return to Paris.
And yes, now the name of the hotel is Villa Mazarin, not Villa Malraux.
Such a good choice!
Very new, clean, nicely decorated hotel. Nice staff, very helpful and kind. for some reasons my room had no hair dryer, but the concierge promptly helped me about this matter. The location is perfect, few steps from the tube access, in Le Marais, the heart of Paris, makes easy to reach any area from there. Perfect silence in the rooms, just a little too warm maybe, and the lights in the bathroom were spots on the ceiling: nice lighting effect but not very helpful for ladies for putting make up on.
Everything else was ok, maybe it's a little too expensive, but not above the Paris' avarage.
Great All Non-Smoking Hotel on Edge of Marais
A charming hotel. Very recently opened, it has all new furnishings and fittings. Rooms and all other aspects of the property are immaculate. Decor is a stylish, fun combination of modern and traditional. The bed was supremely comfortable. The front desk staff is extremely gracious and speaks good English. The best aspect: the hotel is ALL NON-SMOKING.
Located at the intersection of rue de la Verriere and rue des Archives, it is on the edge of the Marais. Near the lively streets, but not noisy, like some other hotels I have stayed in in this neighborhood.
My criticisms are few and minor: light in the bathroom is not great for applying makeup (and probably for shaving). The wireless internet access does not reach all rooms (old, thick walls). Nevertheless, the desk staff is more than happy to loan you a long Ethernet cord for high speed access. If your laptop doesn't detect the signal, ask beforehand for the Ethernet cable. My computer got very confused when I went from wireless to wired access.
PS--the hotel owner told me that they will shortly be changing the name of the property.

... gets a whitewash every time it rains.
The weather was beautiful, and Parisians were out in force. They were lounging all around the sizable tiered park in front of the church listening to musicians and enjoying the spectacular view from the highest point in Paris. Gypsy women kept approaching us and gesturing wildly for us to donate to some deaf-mute foundation. We later saw a several of them ...
So just around the corner was this beaut lass who took all,our laundry and made it new. Merci madam. Then off to the church of the Miraculous Medal around the next corner as requested by a few folk. Arrived just at the same time a mass started and realised it just sounds better in French. And then down the road a bit, over Pont Neuf, a left turn and after a hot chocolate, we went for a big wander about St Chapelle. Pretty damn impressive by day as the ...
... we definitely had a room - which we had - but the price was about twice what I thought I had booked. Still cheap by Paris standards but not what was expected. As we had no booking confirmation we had no proof of the price paid and we just had to accept the situation, pay up and have a bed to sleep in and a roof over our heads on this rainy evening. Interestingly, reading trip advisor it seems this is not the first time this hotel has ...
... crÍpes to be sweet dessert-like treats, but here most of us had our first savoury crÍpe - it was honestly one of the most beautiful experiences and what helped was that they were incredibly generous with the amount of cheese that they put into the crÍpe. We had tomatoes, sausage, ham, onions. egg and cheese for dinner in the shape of an ice cream cone - it was all around fantastic.

... ve seen in pictures. But what doesn't come across in the pictures is the gravel, dusty roads; when the wind blows there is a small dust storm. Even though the gardens are huge, they are pretty crowded and Heather's feet are beat so our only 2 options for seeing anything more than the first vista are to ride the overcrowded tram around the park after standing in line for an hour or rent a golf cart (32E/hr) and see it on our own (within the confines of ...
