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.

I wake well before my alarm, no doubt sleeping under the fear of missing my train. It's a very civilised 10.46 intercity one to Milan Centrale with a very civilised breakfast at the station beforehand (freshly squeezed OJ is the norm) and few stops along the way. My Monterosso mates, leaving tomorrow, prepare for a day of sea kayaking, paddle boats and/or swimming.
Early booking has allowed me to indulge in a €19 first class ticket for the three hour train trip... ...
... its bit to promote the French Open.
The other picture just proves I was there!
Next it was down to the Seine for a 1-hour boat trip. This was probably the least pleasant part of the tour, as the boat, like most of them on the Seine, was very large, it could hold 400 people, though it wasn't quite full; but there was a school party and la lot of youths who kept whistling and cat-calling to people (girls!) on ...
... cops standing up, blowing whistles & waving their arms for traffic to move over because a VIP is coming through! This was a pick up point for the LOpen Tour double decker buses that tour the sights of Paris. We purchased a 3 day pass which enables us to get on & off anytime which we thought was good value & convenient. Today we spent most of the day on the bus travelling on 3 different routes to get an overview & decide what we really wanted to see. We did ...
... driverless and there are no staff to watch and make sure all is safe. There were so many crowds all trying to get to the same place that the trains were packed and we got split up. John and Isi managed to get on but Dawn, Hattie and Jamie didn’t before the doors closed. Fortunately we had arranged which station we were going to get off at and met up again there. On our journey a man got on and the doors closed leaving his rucksack ...
... an hour, so it was a quick flight, and the minute we got to Paris we fell in love. We got off the plane, it looked so nice and so fun, and the people were so great. One guy helped Ana and Clara with their bags, when we were going to the train. We had to go to the train to get into Paris, and we had to pay for a ticket, and for some reason Clara's wasn't working so some man let her go through with his, he was very nice! Than once ...
