Historical Traveler Reviews Ampere Hotel Paris
Perfect in Paris
My husband and I stayed here for part of our honeymoon while in Paris. We were very impressed. The staff and service were excellent. The rooms were very clean and smelled wonderful! The room and bathroom had a contemporary decor. We were glad we stayed here for part of our honeymoon. We highly recommend this hotel to anyone.
Smart business-style hotel
I chose this hotel entirely due to the recommendations on this site, for a 3 night stay in Paris with my girlfriend. Booked it through RatesToGo at about 105 euros a night (plus commission to website).
The hotel is modern, clean, smart and stylish. However, a couple of things were disappointing. One, the much-acclaimed breakfast was not included, and would have been an extra 15 euros each per day. This meant the only time we spent there was in the room. And secondly, the neighbourhood was fairly quiet and some distance from the centre. It is more of a business/smart residential area, so it is hard to find cheap restaurants or shops in the vicinity. These two things meant that although it is obviously cheap for a 4* hotel, it was not such a bargain as I first hoped. And if you turn up late or find yourself hungry, it is hard to get good on a budget.
It is a good quality and very nice hotel though, just bear in mind these two caveats!
Superb - especially with a good deal :o)
We stayed here for three nights in January 2005. Got a superb deal via lastminute (first time I've actually found something really useful from then - great being able to cross-check with Tripadvisor!) for my wife, myself and our four-year-old. Friendly service, spotless pleasant rooms and very nice breakfast.
We couldn't dream of affording to eat in the restaurant at lunch or dinner - but looked very nice too.
Great position in Paris - next to a lovely roundabout with loads of cages and restaurants and a Monoprix nearby. Walk to the RER or metro is very quick too.
WARNING would be that on the Lastminute site they say 'children can stay free in parents' room'. We therefore booked a double room and included in our 'notes' the fact that we were bringing a 4-year-old and needed am extra bed (expected a little mattress or something). Arrived to find no extra bed and then they tried to provide a cot/basinet for him (he'd have broken it if he tried to lie in it!!). Once I pointed out my note on their booking form we finally got upgraded (for free) to a full size triple room... Not sure what they'd have done if there hadn't been one available, since the room we were originally allocated had no space for another bed, even a folding one.
Anyway, if you can afford it, or find a good deal like we did, it's a wonderful base from which to explore Paris. We had a really good few days.
Paris' Best Kept Secret
My boyfriend and I found this hotel after spending way too many hours looking for an affordable yet classy spot in Paris for a 5 day visit. We found Hotel Ampere through tripadvisor and then got a good deal through lastminute. IT was fabulous. The hotel itself is beautiful, clean and quiet. The room was tiny (of course), but the bathroom was new and spotless, service was impeccable and the staff were very helpful. The neighborhood was cute and very convenient. Free breakfast every morning comes in handy. I don't think we could have gotten a better deal. I will definitely make it a point to stay at this hotel every time I vistit Paris!
My husband and I visited Paris and stayed at this Hotel in December, we were overly impressed with the quality and comfort of the rooms. The staff were wonderful and helpful and we managed to get parking which was a great relief to us. Sadly we had to leave a day early but will go back there again. Not to mention the excellent breakfast and room service. It's a Lovely little gem.
The hotel was great first class location. The staff where friendly and very helpful. The hotel was very posh and extremely clean. Know one can go wrong if your planning to stay here.
The breakfast was well worth getting up for and had a big generous variety to choose from. If you cant be bothered to get up for breakfast they will send it up to your room free of charge, but its only continental breakfast in your room.
The Arc De Triumph is just five minute walk down the road and Effiel Tower is around fiftheen to twenty minutes walk. But the metro station is just on the corner from the hotel, on a roundabout fall of bars and restaurents.
The hotel says its in the 17th district but it is more in the eighth district, a very good central hotel, well worth the money. Id 100% go again.
Amazing Location & Excellent Standard
We stayed at Hotel Ampere for 3 nights over New Year 2005. The hotel is in a fantastic location, just off the main tourist beat (& therefore the fast food & tourist shops) but still only 10 minute walk from Arc De Triomphe. Nearby Metro station makes it easy to get to all sights very easily. There are plenty of fantastic French restaurants nearby. The hotel is a good 4 star with friendly staff, the buffet breakfast is also excellent. For a hotel in central Paris, the price is excellent. We will definately stay here again.
Excellent - Will go back
Stayed here three nights in November 2004. Excellent location near a typical french roundabout with loads of restaurants and bars on it. The Metro & RER is pretty much right on the doorstep.
The hotel itself is excellent, nice size rooms and friendly staff. The buffet breakfast is worth going down to also. Nice little bar area for pre-dinner drinks.
There is an excellent restaurant a few doors down from the hotel which has a fantastic set menu. Do go there if you have a chance.. it is the first restaurant you come to when heading to the metro from the hotel.
I will go back..!
The Hotel Ampere was an excellent choice for us for our Honeymoon. The staff was helpful, courteous and very polite! Especially Pierre who worked at the reception desk. The rooms were nice and included an interactive television which made it easy to plug into a DSL connection and to receive messages right in our room from the front desk. The food was delicious and the Piano Bar had a great ambiance which we enjoyed while having drinks. "Merci" to the entire staff for making our stay a pleasant one.
The Air Conditioning Worked When It Was 104 Outside!
The Hotel Ampere was the "pick up" point for our "Go Barging" trip.
Because we did not trust the French air traffic controllers -- they were going on periodic strikes most of the summer, we came in a day early.
The information sent us by the barge company showed a rack rate at the Ampere that was 50% above what discount hotel sites charged.
Our room was small but perfectly adequate and very clean. -- and it was incrediby cool on a day when the outside temperature hit 104F.
Although we had booked a standard (street-side, the only type offered on the discount site) room, we were given one overlooking the garden.
As the hotel was easily only 1/4 booked, this was not a particularly dramatic gesture; but the hotel was under no obligation to give us this upgrade (especially as we had booked through the discount site), and we very much appreciated their efforts.
The staff was very helpful; and the breakfast was very, very nice. We also enjoyed the neighborhood: it was a bit off the tourist track but had a number of nice small restaurants (about half of which were open in August) and shops.
At the discounted rate, we would not hesitate to stay there again; at the rack rate, it is, in our opinion, overpriced -- but, if space is tight, I don't think you would feel "taken."

Well last night ended with a bang...literally.... Sharyn was in bed asleep Wayne in bed not asleep and I had finished writing, was getting undressed and intended to put the washing on.
As I took off my trousers I overbalanced slightly, put my foot on the ground....it hit the suitcase which slid out from under me and I went flying. Must have looked hilarious but I landed very, very, very heavily with no hands to break the ...
3 days now in Paris and we have had an amazing time in this charming city, walking the streets hand in hand with my girl, its quite romantic and a little cliche but, when in Paris!. I'm proud to say we have not hopped on one bus yet, our feet are starting to feel it now though. We walked about 15km in the rain on Thursday, saw most of the regular sights, best of all though is treading the cobles of our local area in Montmatre, it ...
... even taking a bus for a few stops to save some energy! When we finally reached the Jardins du Trocadero, the sun broke through for awhile, creating some better conditions for us to photograph the Eiffel Tower, and the blooming beds of flowers and shrubs in the gardens. As already mentioned, we were totally exhausted by the time we reached the apartment, and it may be that today's outing was our last "hurrah", but we'll see how we feel in the morning.
... lysées. I really wanted to try French pastries so we looked around for a patisserie. We grabbed a bite to eat at Paul's (a delicious patisserie) then continued on our way. After this, we went to La Fayette, which for those that don't know, is a huge shopping mall. There, we split up and decided to meet back in an hour. Both of us met up empty handed as the stores were so numerous and prices so high, it was overwhelming. After our failed shopping at La Fayette, ...
