Historical Traveler Reviews Brittany Hotel Paris
Clean and welcoming
There is still some renovation going on in the public areas but we had a very clean newly renovated room. The staff on the reception desk were very courteous and friendly. Breakfast was help yourself and was more than adequate.
Close to Opera and the 'grands magasins.' Lots of restaurants nearby. Metro just around the corner
All in all a very convenient and good value hotel.
Our room was lovely, very clean and an excellent bathroom too. Breakfast was fine, as much as you wanted, and newspapers to read too!
Location was great very near 2 useful Metro stations, and loads of restaurants and bars closeby.
For the money we paid, especially considering previous trips to Paris, I think the hotel Brittany was excellent and would certainly recommend it.
My girlfriend and I stayed here and we were not pleased with hotel staff. They did not make us feel welcome. The phone was not working in our room and they did not change it. They made us use the pay phone across the street. The breakfast is very basic and includes only 1 croissant per person. Try to avoid this hotel.
That why, I indicated them the payphone outside the hotel.
Concerning the breakfast. We serve a buffet breakfast with, ham, cheese, cereals, fruit salads differents kind of marmelades and jams, nutella, orange and grapefruit juice, differents type of tea and of course coffee, chocolate. We serve baguette and one croissant per person and on request we offer more croissant. The buffet can be better but the price would not be the same.
My manager ask me to mention that he did more than a 1000 000,00 euros investment to renovated the hotel since june 2005 and this is not finished. The reception, bar, breakfast room and lounge should be renovated in the beginning of 2007.
Be sure that we always do our best to make feel comfortable our client.
Nice Little Hotel
As the hotel is undergoing full renovation, we were pleasantly surprised by our room! It was newly furnished (new bed, new desk, etc) and the bathroom was completely redone - clean and tidy. Although the room is small, we stayed quiet comfortably with airconditioning, TV, hairdressers, etc. Our only minor complaints are that the mattress is a bit hard (too new maybe?), there is only one small lift, and that it was a little bit noisy in the morning (because of the ongoing construction which should be over soon). The staff was helpful and the location was great! We would recommend this hotel to anyone, especially those with a tight budget because it really is a good "bang for your buck"!
Avoid at all costs!
Now. We were supposed to stay at Hotel Des Croises (Langlois) but due to some problems we had to spend our first night at Brittany. This was the worst experience ever. Why? Lets make a list:
- The room was small, dark and smelled bad
- The floor/carpet was very dirty (do they clean at all?)
- The wallpapers were full of holes and patches to cover holes. And lots of stains.
- One bed was wet (!). I don't know why - i didn't want to smell it.
- The shower flooded.
- The bathroom felt like a public toilet.
And then some minor things like a non working hairdryer, rude staff etc etc.
So avoid. At all costs.
Wonderful little find
Anyone looking for a smashing hotel wont go wrong here. Old part of Paris where you can discover so much.
Lovely, friendly staff who speak English. Extremely helpful.I use this hotel on my way to various parts of France.
Whenever I arrive they always find me a calm and pleasant room.
And more often than not offer me discount.
Very reasonable prices. Well worth a visit. Away from the tourist area, but not far to walk to Opera and Gare St. Lazare...
or the steps to Sacre Ceur.....
You will not be disappointed!
I never want to leave.
Good Bargain Hotel that has A/C!
A cheap hotel in Paris is relatively easy to get but finding one that offers A/C is another story. Although, the hotel is a little rough around the edges and the rooms are small, the location and the price are excellent. The extra fee for continental breakfast is somewhat annoying but it's a good deal (anywhere from USD $70.00 to $125.00 a night). There is an extremely small elevator and Metro station was literally a 1/2 block away from hotel.
Not up to 3 Star rating
The rooms were dirty and the staff were surly. This hotel would not be a good 2 star hotel. The wallpaper in our room was peeling and it stunk of old cigarette smoke. It's worth paying a bit more for something better.
Fantastic clean rooms and location was perfect
Not only were the rooms at the Brittany REALLY clean(a little small by North American standards) but the location was fantastic. 30 sec walk to the Metro subway station. 30 second walk to a street market with incredible patisseries vegetable shops grocery store and cheese shops.
10 sec walk to bank machine. 1 minute walk to a fantastic local restaurant that serve some of the greatest French food available. Next time I'm in Paris, I'm staying there.

... the first metro station I recognized as soon as I could and witnessed various people tearing down lamp posts, street lights, and street signs. I can honestly say I have never experienced any event such as this. A great event with amazing music, turned into a riot with no meaning behind it. Apart from the ruckus, I am glad that I got to experience the techno parade during my stay here and had my first (and unless I have VIP passes) probably my last EDM show experience! ...
... to Les Invalides on 15 December 1840 while the tomb was being built. The architect Visconti (1791-1853) was commissioned to make it in 1842 by King Louis-Philippe, who had extensive work carried out beneath the Dome, involving an immense excavation to create a space for the tomb. The body of Emperor Napoleon I was placed there on 2 April 1861. The tomb, sculpted from blocks of red quartzite and placed on a green Vosges granite base, is surrounded by a laurel crown ...
... the touristy stuff. As I knew I was going to be tired today I didn't plan much. Which is pretty much what I did. I took a leisurely stroll down the Seine river. Stopped for an overpriced bite of lunch, then made my way to the Eiffel Tower. I decided that as I didn't want to do anything to strenuous, I wouldn't mind standing in line to go up it this time. I was only in line for an hour, maybe less. Heres a tip: rain keeps the tourists at bay. It ...
... we going to do? You guessed it. Walk more! We walked to the Eiffel Tower again because we heard it was pretty at night and boy were we right. The sun set just a little after we got there and the tower started to sparkle. It was a sight I'm glad I didn't miss. The long walk back was miserable yet again but once we were in our small single room of an "apartment" we made spaghetti for dinner and crashed. I bet tomorrow brings more walking. Can't ...
... went to Notre Dame to see the parts of the church that we had missed and also decided we wanted to take a tour so we could go to the top and see the inside of the bell tower. But JUST as we went to get in line, security closed it off saying the people already in line would be the last tour of the day. FUDGE! Now we know they close things off at 4PM.
Next on the agenda was the Lover's Lock Bridge. This is one of my ...
