Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Jeanne d'Arc Paris
There are two Hotel Jeanne d'Arcs in Paris. The Hotel Jeanne d'Arc is the cute one in the Marais on Rue de Jarente. The Grand Hotel Jeanne d'Arc is a smaller, cheaper, and slightly seedier 2 star on Blvd.
Marcel near Place d'Italie. At the hotel in the Marais, they told us they get about 3 groups each week that have mistakenly booked into the other hotel and thought they were geting the Marais hotel. It happened to us and I used to live in Paris. I couldn't believe I had made that mistake. Our room was small and reeked of stale cigarettes (hard for nonsmokers). Our bathroom also smelled of mold, although it all seemed clean. There were no channels in English, not even CNN. The people were very nice and our room was about 25 euros cheaper than the Marais hotel. But I would have paid the difference just to get away from the smell. We bought air freshener at the store next door. Also, our closest metro stop was closed for construction. I won't make that mistake again, don't let it happen to you! PS - They said it's always people with internet bookings.
I will be going back.
The Hotel itself is charming and the staff were friendly, helpful and spoke English. The room was a decent size, spotlessly clean, and overlooked a quiet street, with a large clean bathroom. The location in the Marais district is perfect for those who want to explore the more intimate side of Paris. There is a delightful square just around the corner, Place St Cathrine, which has a great selection of bars and restaurants.
An added bonus for European travellers using Ryanair is that it is only 2 minutes from the St Paul metro station. This is on a direct metro line from Porte Maillot, where the coach from Beauvais Airport drops you.
I will have no hesitation in using the hotel again on any future visits to Paris.
Great low priced Paris Hotel
We are beer budget / champagne taste travelers and this hotel could be described as good beer. The location was outstanding and there are many great restaurants within walking distance. Our stay was late August 2003 and we had a party of people that comprised 4 rooms. Our friends kept adding and deleting days of their stay and the hotel staff was oh-so-patient to our friends' ever-changing minds. The hotel staff called restaurants, gave us ideas and were just great to us. We had a few nights free at the Holiday Inn Place de la Republique from our Holiday Inn points and that filled out our Champagne dreams - it was much more luxurious and but without our free stay would have also been cost prohibitive...I will write a separate review on that hotel. For the Grand Hotel Jeanne d'Arc- it is clean and in a charming neighborhood. We would stay there again.
I found the Jeanne D'arc searching the internet and stayed there this past August. I found it to be absolutely charming. The front desk staff spoke perfect english and were quite helpful. My room was on the 4th floor and was very quiet, clean and decorated nicely. It is a quaint place that felt very homey to me. I would definitely stay there again (the neighbourhood - Marais - is fantastic!)
This is a great little hotel. Definitely value for money! Fantastic location...Marais district is great...Hotel is very close to the subway, cafes etc. And the staff were extremely friendly and very helpful. As we were travelling on a budget we expected a bit of dump and were very pleasantly surprised at the hotel. When you compare the prices of Paris hotels you'll know what I mean. The rooms were very clean. They differ in size quite a bit. We had 2 single rooms.. one was quite large with huge windows, good size bathroom and the other [mine] was very very small with tiny bathroom but spotlessly clean which was enough for me...as has been mentioned in other reviews 'how long to you spend in your room in Paris.....'
Great location. Great Price.
I've stayed here twice: once in the summer and once in Late November.
Here's the thing, the price is SUPER CHEAP for the fantastic location.
The staff is very kind and helpful, and the rooms are spotless and well maintained. Yes, my shower curtain featured 101 Dalmatians. Yes the stairway was a little crooked. But for the price, I couldn't recommend it more highly. How much time are you going to spend in your room, anyway? Save the cash and spend it on some great evenings out! Until my ship comes in, I wouldn't consider staying anywhere else. (The reviewer from Colorado should have stayed home.)
C'est Tres Bon !!!
I took a trip to Paris in March 2003 and stayed at Grand Hotel Jeanne D'Arc basically because all of the current guide books recommended the place ... they were right ! ... For the money, you wont get better value in Paris ... the location (which as you know is very important) is excellent ... close to Notre Dame, the River Seine, Place De Les Voyages etc ... our room (number 2 I think on the ground floor near the reception) was quite spacious and spotless, bathroom was on the small side (but just exactly how long do you intend spending in the bathroom when visiting Paris ?) ... Hotel Staff were helpfull ... Didn't have breakfast there becuase its Paris for goodness sake ... get out there and choose a cafe or Patisserie of your choice, from the many excellent ones near-by ... oh, and by the way, Reserve your room well in advance ... enjoy !!!
Save your money for a 3 star hotel
Why this place gets rave reviews is beyond me. We booked here for 2 nights on the recommendations listed on this web site. There's nothing charming about this hotel except its location in the Marais district. The first night we stayed in room no. 11 and were kept awake all night by street noise. The next night we moved to a room on the 6th floor. Quieter, but equally as make-shift. Warning: the water temperature in the shower shifts between scalding hot and ice cold without warning. No washcloths and minimal complimentary toiletries. You'd be better off to save your money for a 3 star hotel in the same district.
Charming hotel; dedicated staff
We stayed at Jeanne d'Arc in late August-early September '01. We were actually in the air headed back to America on 9/11 and, of course, were told to return to Paris. After the first night in a "strange" hotel, Jeanne d'Arc made room for us, allowing us to stay on until we could get a flight back to USA. They were extremely
The location was terrific for our needs; the Marais district is very charming. The rooms (we stayed in 3 different rooms) are small, but clean. There are a few very good restaurants near by, which were trafficked by locals. I can't say enough good things about the desk staff.
Affordable, great location, huge room
I stayed here in January 2001 in a room on the third (French third) floor. The room was huge and had two double beds and a full sized desk along with a wardrobe. The bathroom was small, but had very new appliances and was sparkling clean. I would highly recommend this hotel for a tourist visiting France. It might be a bit out of the way for a business person, however. It was a good location near the tourist sights and the Marais district is exciting, but the office buildings and such are far away.

... aniseed flavour. To work off our big meals we walked up the hill to the Sacre Coeur basilica which was very crowded but incredibly beautiful inside with detailed mosaics (no photos allowed). There were great views over Paris from the steps of the Sacre Coeur. From there we made our way through Montmartre to see the Moulin Rouge. It was quite interesting walking through the red light ...
... is there is fascinating. We wanted to see the Mona Lisa, of course, and we did. Along with thousands of other people. It was completely packed in the museum. We could not get too close to the Mona Lisa. Still, we saw the real thing! We then did some more sightseeing on our own to take in some of the more famous sights of Pairs, the Arch of Triumph and the Champs-Élysées. Our last night in Paris was probably our best meal there. We had the ...
... good but it is divine!
-They make great coffee but the price makes Perth look cheap. €4.5 cheapest I've found ($6.60) and the dearest €8.5 ($12.50) and yes i passed on the latter and my intake compared to desire is significantly reduced!
-a bucket of bread comes with every meal and they think it odd I don't eat it
-crosswalks are treated as more than road decorations but even if you have the green keep a look out. Sometimes they stop but feel ...
... one. We checked into our hostel and retired for the evening.
Sunday morning we got up and enjoyed the delicious chocolate muesli the hostel offered for breakfast. We found our way to the tour headquarters. I was thankful for Christal's expertise in planning all the logistics of our trip. The bus tour took us past all the sights in Paris, but the strong accent of the tour guide through our headphones prevented me ...
... been blessed enough to see - but more on that tomorrow! The rest of the museum is stunning too as our the buildings themselves! We kept ourselves amused by playing funny games with the hilarious characters in some of the paintings! After the Louvre we moved on the Saint Chappelle. An old chapel with 15 floor to ceiling stained glass windows! That was awesome! Ready for lunch we crossed the Seine and grabbed a picnic from the ...
