Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Le Walt Paris
April in Paris....... We'll be back.....
My wife and I feel so fortunate to have spent all of last week at this wonderful hotel in an excellent area within the Left Bank. Although the hotel has such favorable qualities, the foremost quality was in the personality and subtle excellence of all members of this hotel staff.... even the courteous manager was always present, and was approachable in all issues, which were generally of a complimentary nature with us, as the cordial staff made efforts to become acquainted with all the residents, and they were very attentive to accomodating all areas of requests for information and assistance..... this is certainly not the norm in Paris hotels.
I have read reviews of people who were critical of the noises near the hotel... well, this is Paris, an exciting and vibrant city in the world, and the sounds of the city are to be expected, and actually help constitute the uniqueness of Paris. Should someone want "piece and quiet", don't go to Paris, but ask your local bank if you can stay in their lobby for the week-end so you can have your solitude.
This hotel excites the senses with its flair, staff, and location.... excellent eating establishments are simply within walking distancs (including within the hotel restaurant), bakeries, speciality shops, shoe, candy, floral, and outside markets..... plus the fabulous Le Bon Marche for items that may never arrive in America.
Although we have stayed at other hotels, we are very confident that our "hotel evaluations" are over..... we will joyfully return to the Hotel le Walt at every opportunity.
Good use of small space.......
This hotel boasts modern interiors with very french styling. It is only small but uses excellent use of the space by dividing the dining area from the foyer with coloured voille. The staff are very friendly and speak good English. The rooms are small and there is very little storage space but it is clean and has nice bathrooms with very modern sinks.
Breakfast is not included in the price but can be obtained for 12 Euro's each which is expensive considering it is only fresh fruit, cereal and some French pastries.
The hotel is literally minutes from the Eiffel Tower and has a tube station right outside it. The surrounding restaurants are a bit pricey, however cheaper ones can be found if you are prepared to walk a short distance.
I would certainly recommend this hotel.
This was one great place!
My new wife and I arrived in Paris on January 24th, 2005. We were welcomed with open arms. The hotel is simply gorgeous. Obviously, this is Europe, so the room was smaller than I was used to, but absolutely wonderful. Our view was spectacular. We were on the top floor with a perfect view of the Eiffel Tower. Our room came with many nice accommodations. We had a mini-fridge in our room, fully stocked with drinks and snacks. We had a DVD player and nice-sized color television. The bed was the most comfortable I have ever slept on, including my own home bed. The comforter and sheets were soft and luxurious. My wife and I joked about buying the bedding from the hotel. Where it really took my breath away was the bathroom. Beautiful fixtures and big tub with good water pressure. Throw in the towel warmer and I am hooked. I want to redo our bathroom at our house to include a few of these accommodations. The staff was very helpful. They did their best to speak English and even helped us with some French. Internet access in the lobby seemed to be limited to the daylight hours. I did not bring a laptop with me to take advantage of supposed room access. There is a supermarket across the street and a bar next door. The tube station is right across the street. Eiffel Tower is an easy walk away, maybe 4 minutes. All in all this was the single best hotel room stay I have ever had. Do not think twice about booking here.
Scored great brownie points with my wife!
This hotel must have been recently been completely renovated because it appears brand new. Interior stylings are just like the more well known Hotel W chain. You feel like the staff are catering just to you. One-half block from the Metro. One half block away from a street which hosts a busy outdoor market each day. Next door to a popular brasserie. One block away from the Eiffel tower and its park. Two blocks away from Napoleon's tomb and only several blocks away from everything else worth seeing. Our room had a large comfortable bed (I am 6 feet, 230 lbs. and felt completely comfortable). I was blown away that a hotel of this quality and service level in this location was available at such reasonable prices. Of course the most important factor was my wife loved it and kept telling me so the entire trip!
Fabulous hotel with great staff
This was an absolutely superb hotel and made what was already a fantastic holiday in Paris truly outstanding!
It has a great location, the Eiffel Tower is only 5 minutes walk away, the Hotel D'Invillides is a minutes walk from the street behind the hotel and the metro is right outside. On arrival the staff could not have been friendlier giving me a sporting chance at using my limited French and helping me out when I clearly needed a bit of assistance.
It's a great little boutique type hotel but as soon as you walk in it feels warm but still looks very stylish. Our room was great with two little Juliet balconies with French windows and a view of the Eiffel Tower itself. If you left the windows open at night the street was noisy especially in the morning when the delivery vans start up. However with good air-con you should not need to do this.
The bed was very comfortable and I am very very picky about my bed. It had an amazing headboard, which was an original oil painting; I'm told every room has a different one. The bathroom was modern and clean with a great selection of toiletries. The maid was very perceptive and on the first night we had removed the cushions from the bed she placed them in the cupboard realising we did not want to use them.
The rooms also have DVD players and the hotel has a good selection of films, which you can choose from if you fancy some chill out time in your room. The mini bar was well stocked. I would strongly advise you to make use of it to chill your own beers and water. Not that the hotel prices were bad but Paris is very expensive. In one café next to the Opera House my husband was charged 6 Euros for a coke. Beer was also very highly priced.
The hotel bar is small but again very friendly. Breakfast at 12 Euros was in my opinion a good price and again the service was excellent. The hotel was advertised as having a restaurant but I did not see one and we were not asked if we wanted reservations for dinner. As you walk out of the hotel turn to your right and walk about 3 minutes down the street and head for the Café Max restaurant - the food was brilliant and the owner was really good fun.
Which brings me to the misnomer that Parisians are rude. We were in Paris for 3 nights and this could not have been further from the truth. In fact I have travelled extensively in France and I would go so far as to say it was the friendliest part of the country I have been to. It is also quite frankly a breath-taking city. Everywhere you look there is something to marvel at. I loved this hotel and also loved Paris, as did my husband - without a doubt we will return to both ASAP.
A Cool Little Number!
We stayed here for 3 nights on our first visit to Paris.
An excellent little hotel very close to the Eiffel Tower on a pleasant street and right next to a metro entrance. The hotel interior is modern and smart. Our room was a little small but very clean, tidy and perfect for a short stay. Bathroom was really nice, with bath and shower.
The staff were probably the friendliest and most helpful I have ever met.
Breakfast simple but good quality. I highly recommend this hotel for a short break
The but is that if you request a room with a view you will probably also be woken at 5am by the first deliverys to the supermarket opposite. However this said on request we were moved to a room overlooking the courtyard which was quiet apart from the rumble of the metro which you can still feel on the 5th floor. The hotel staff are very helpful and speak excellent english. We would definatly stay here again its a fashionable hotel in a convienent location.
I have just returned from a long weekend staying at this great hotel. I always planned to propose to my girlfriend on this trip so the hotel was very important to me. The hotel was, thankfully, wonderful. I had requested a room with a view of the Eiffel Tower and a balcony out the front and this is exactly what I got, although 3 balconys was a pleasant surprise. The rooms weren't particularly big but this just added to the intimate nature of the hotel, with only 4 rooms on each floor and a cosy restaurant and bar. The location was great. Literally 20 seconds on foot and you were at the metro station and a 2 minute walk to the Tower. I would recommend this hotel to anyone and would not hesitate to return myself.
Romantic Le Walt, Paris.
Stayed her for four nights at the beginning of February. An absoutely beautiful hotel with a very stylish interior. Staff extreemly friendly and helpful, whilst remaining professional at all times. Rooms a little on the small side but are more than made up for by design extras and fabulous bathroom. Please do not stay anywhere else. You will not be dissapointed!
We loved it!!!!!

... I got a few decent photos which I hope to share. After the boat tour, we strolled back up to the Eiffel Tower to get some day pictures and then strolled through the park taking in some of the ambience. There were many more people around than last evening and there was, interspersed among them, an assortment of Soldiers and Gendarmes. Aside from that, the thing that struck me the most was the ...
... which is the largest triumphal arch in the world. It was commissioned by Napoleon in 1806. We then walked along Paris’s Grand Promenade – Champs de Elysees! Apparently at the end of this street is where the "royal heads" used to roll, literally! It is now lined by many stores and other wonders, but it sure was neat to realize how many royals walked these areas. Walking past the Grand Palace we were inundated by kiosks selling ...
... which we acquired the components for our Parisian picnic. By the time we reached the Champs de Mars, the long and grand gardened lane that leads up to the tower, we were in serious need of some lazing. We found a spot under a tree with an imposing view of the tower, laid down Justin's microfibre travel towel, and dined on cheese, baguette, grapes, and Bordeaux. As tempted as we were to nap, our fear of thieves outweighed our longing for sleep, ...
... in the museum. Breathtaking!
We walked through the Tuileries and over one of the many bridges full of locks and we also did some shopping on the Rue de Commerce. It's been a lovely, relaxed day in Paris just enjoying the beauty of the city
Tonight we are having a late snack instead of dinner and heading to the Champs de Mars to see the Eiffel Tower lit up.
Tomorrow we are going to Versailles. It's open for sure.....I checked!
... to the train station was quicker. There were also less people on the bus - lucky us! We arrived at the train station in plenty of time (75 mins early), thanks to Jane wanting to NOT be late!! They have a pleasant waiting area, Le Grand Salon, and there are also plenty of shops to look at, to occupy your time. The room was very much of train travel of the past with very high ceilings and a now disused large open fireplace. We were fortunate to be able to place our cases in ...
