      Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Britannique Paris

      A Great Stay!

      from

      June 2004. Nice room, excellent location, helpful staff. Hotel Britannique was all I needed. The room was comfortable and modern, stylish without being garish. It had french doors opening onto the street which were soundproof when closed. Continental breakfast is great when included in the rate, if not, try the patisserie around the corner instead. All staff members were friendly, helpful, and spoke English among other languages. Location was excellent, near the Chatelet-Les Halles metro stop which connects to everything. Room was not ready at arrival, but ended up upgraded to a double from a single. Staying 2 extra nights was no problem. I would choose to stay there again.

      The best Un-Pretentious little Hotel in Paris

      from

      This was my sister's first ever visit to Paris and it started off really badly with the rudest taxi driver on the planet. We spoke french much to his digust...he dropped us at a crossroads away from the hotel in the rain...not a nice individual. But our welcome to this charming hotel was superb. The manager was fantastic and the peaceful and relaxing atmosphere changed our moods from furious to very comfortable. Our superior twin was a lovely room, not huge but fine and immacutely decorated, breakfast was gorgeous buffet, well worth the 12Euros. Both of us would go back. Thankyou for a lovely relaxing time.

      Wonderful stay!

      from

      We were in Paris and stayed at the Hotel Britannique from March 30-April 9. The hotel is in a perfect location -- in the middle of everything (a block from the Chatelet, a block from the Seine, a few blocks from the Louvre), yet so quiet and so lovely. Just a block from the Metro's Chatelet stop, it made it easy to get absolutely anywhere by foot or by public transport. We booked a large room, which was of decent size. I think as Americans we are spoiled by big everything. The room was lovely, the bathroom was especially clean and modern and the hotel staff was incredibly helpful and patient with us non-French speakers. I also loved the Annick Goutal toiletries in the bathroom and took some soaps home with me. For those who complain about ashtrays in the room and such, be warned that most of Paris smokes! We were in a smoking allowed room but you couldn't tell at all -- the room was perfectly clean and smell-free. I would most certainly stay at the Hotel Britannique again.

      Great value

      from

      Just returned from a short weekend break. Chose this hotel for its location - it didn't disappoint. Our room was very clean, if a little basic, but compared to my last experience of a hotel in Paris this was a million times better. The bathroom was pretty good too. I know what another reviewer meant about the claustrophobic lift, but it was part of the fun. We did have breakfast each day. It is extremely good value and well worth having, of course it meant I was too full up to try out the little place round the corner! Don't expect too much from this hotel, but it certainly ticked all my boxes. All the staff were extremely friendly and helpful wioth no language barriers. Although there are some good places to eat nearby there are also some very dodgy ones - my advice would be to choose very carefully.

      Loved Hotel Britannique

      from

      The Hotel Brittanique is in the perfect location for getting around Paris. There are many metro stations close by. We knew there were not any specified non-smoking rooms (something Mike, a previous reviewer should have known), so were not suprised at seeing ashtrays, and the hotel did a good job at airing out the room before our arrival. Yes, the closets are tiny...so what?! The bathroom was quite large for Paris. We asked for a superior King, all of which are at the back of the building, so only had views of other buildings, but that was worth having a larger bed. The hotel informed me ahead of time they do not allow ironing in the rooms, because of previous damage to the room interiors; there certainly isn't room for an ironing board (as in US hotel rooms) so to deter patrons from ironing on the carpets or bed linens, they have just said NO to ironing! Understandable. The elevator was tiny, not for the claustrophobic. Most often we took the quaint original staircase, which is part of the charm of this hotel. Staff were very accomodating. My husband speaks fluent French, but the staff spoke very good English so I didnt have trouble myself getting along.

      We didnt have any breakfasts in the hotel, so cannot comment. Every day we had pasty and espresso in the bakery just around the corner from the hotel, at which the staff were very warm and pleasant.

      In the heart of Paris!

      from

      Do you want to stay at a cute hotel that is right in the dead center of the city? This is the place! The Britannique is a small boutique hotel with British style and flair. It is located right at the Chatelet Metro station which is a major transfer point to other lines. It is also within walking distance to other sights like, the Louvre, Les halles, The Marais and Notre Dame. You can also walk to shopping on the busy Rue de Rivoli. Rooms are not huge but you give up in size what you get in convenience. When I was there they were outfitted in Crabtree and eveltn toiletries which I stole everyday! This isn't the best restaurant neighborhood but the metro is nearby and there are a lot of fast food places nearby for convenience. Truely a great find!

      Loved everything about this hotel

      from

      The hotel look great from the outside and fabulous inside. The lounge looked as though everything was brand new - its tastefully done. The bedroom was fantastic - comfortable bed, fabulous beding and drapes, television, hair dryer, newly installed bathroom - very nice. The 2 girls / 1 man on reception were very pleasant and made us feel instantly welcome. The dining room is very clean, and has a country cottage feel. Breakfast was: Cereals (several types), Coffee / Tea, Fruit, Couissants, Yogurts, toast. Believe me there enough here to fill you up. We booked this hotel through hotelconnect and feel we got a bargain. Hotel perfectly situated in paris and close to two metro stations (both 1 min. walk). Would not hesitate to stay here again. PARIS IS FAB. We stayed two nights - it is a rush to see everything, but do as much as you can.Things we did: Flew with British Airways then did a metro transfer to the hotel. Believe me if we can do it, so can you. It was easy. At the airport we bought two metro tickets that lasted for two days (it was cheaper to do this and then, when the break was over we purchased our single ticket for our trip back to the airport, on the way home).Day one: (arrived 11am left luggage in lockable room in reception). Went across the road - literally, to see Notre Dame (free entry) take your camera. Then leisurely walked around a few shops. In the evening we had booked a meal / cruise (on the internet back home) @ www.marinadebercy.com - Highly Recommended. Day two: Had breakfast then got the metro to the Eiffel Tower - WOW!. We walked to the second floor (cost about ?3 each to 2nd floor from there you can get a lift to the top (will cost extra) or you can get the lift from the ground floor (Camera!). We then got the metro to the Arc de Triomph then walked down the Champs Elessey (forgive my spelling). Then on to Mont Marte and Sacr?-Coeur. Look for the artist painting round the back of Sacre-Coeur. Back to the hotel wash and brush up and out on the town. - well a walk around local area and a meal in the restaurant at the end of our street. (Choose set meals as you'll know what your paying for at the end of the night.) Don't have a beer as they cost ?5. Do like the locals do and choose wine - its cheaper. Day three: Breakfast and a walk down to the Louve. Unfortunately, didn't have enough time to go inside and look around as we needed to get back to the hotel to pick up our bags which we'd left in the lockable room and make our way back to the airport. ALL IN ALL - ONE FANTASTIC SHORT TRIP - STUNNING ARCITECTURE EVERYWHERE AND VERY ROMANTIC.

      Charming Hotel, Great Location

      from

      We stayed here with friends (three rooms) and everyone loved it. It's a wonderful value, lovely decor, staff very helpful and friendly. Our room had two sets of tall windows with french doors opening onto a tree-lined street, and it was practically my fantasy of a small, charming French hotel. Very nice, well-appointed bathrooms. The elevator is tiny, but if you're up to it, there's a very pleasant staircase you can use instead.

      It's in a great area, across from Notre Dame, a few short blocks from the Louvre.

      Problems

      from

      Just spent three nights here - and to be honest I wouldn't entertain it again. I booked well in advance and specified a non smoking room with a bath. When we arrived the room had a shower and no bath. There were two ashtrays in the room. Half of the (very small) wardrobe was inaccessible. The TV was a small 14" portable. The room was tiny. I complained about the room and they admitted it was their fault and offered me free continental breakfast. Good job really - the breakfast was again poor and not worth the 11 euro's per person. The ashtrays? They said they do not have specific non smoking rooms. Be warned. That's my opinion for what it's worth. Mike Brown

      Thumbs up

      from

      We stayed at the Brit 4 nights in Jan 03. The superior room was still fairly small but with nice size bath. Decor was very elegant and very clean. The hotel is perfectly located just a few steps from a couple of metros. Breakfast was simple but fresh. ( 11 euros ). We didn't really care for some of the restaurants/cafes near by. Be aware of their very small elevator.( 2 people or one person with one bag ), as I said, very small. No iron in the room and they will not bring one up.... They asked us to bring the clothes to the basement and use the one in there. The people at the front desk were very nice and if you have a chance to speak with Wolf ( the night guy ), say hello for us. He was the best. Very kind and knowledgeable. Bottom line... A bit pricey($150), great location, nice people. Would stay there again.

      Some holidays have days that just don't kind of work (although like a trip to patpong market it came with a happy ending for us) and this was one of them.
