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.

... Tower, the Arc de Triumph and a lot more well known sights. We then had to swap buses again back to the yellow route and continue back to where we started. All in all we had been sitting on the buses for 5 hrs.

We found our way to the Eiffel Tower stop and walked down the seine to get there, the Eiffel Tower getting bigger and more beautiful as we walked. We turned a corner and there it was. So tall and grand and beautiful. I had tears in my eyes as I lived a childhood dream. We passed several creperies, patisserie stalls and ice creameries and walked underneath it. We wondered about climbing ...

... climbing the tower in no time. We saw some more amazing views of the city from here and got some sweet panos from half way up. Only now was I discovering my slight discomfort at heights. ( may have something to do with the Chch quakes) It was very cool to have been up the iconic Eiffel Tower. After getting down we made our way through the park and decided it was getting to one of three of our favourite times in the day. FOOD time! And what makes it an even better time ...
... in flower pots. And somehow I missed that even though the room is 'superior', it has a shower - but no private toilet. Sacre blue! Dinner called, so off down la Rue de la Roquette towards La Bastille we went. Ended up having dinner at "Quatre fois Cinque" - which we discovered is a wine connoisseur's restaurant, AFTER we'd ordered the house red! The food was delicious - we had 2 different entrees and 2 different plats (mains)
It's almost time ...
