TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Jeanne d'Arc Paris
Wonderfull small Parisienne hotel, right in the heart of the Marais district. Not a flashy upmarket establishment, but rather a small boutique hotel which caters for those who value location and service. The rooms are small (not unusual for Paris) but comfortably furnished with a distinctively French flavor. The bed is comfortable, the bathroom is clean and functional, wifi works well, the staff are welcoming, efficient and knowledgeable about the local area. The hotel is well located with dozens of restaurants and cafes nearby. Rue de Rivoli is only a block away where you can find heaps of bars and food shops. Bastille, Republique, the Picasso Museum and Pompidou centre are within easy walking distance. The closest metro is only 5 minutes away where you can catch a train into central Paris for connections to Eiffel Tower, Louvre, Champs Elysees etc etc. Highly recommended as a place to stay in Paris.

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.

Out of bed at 4:00 a.m., breakfast at 4:30, van pickup at 5:00, airport at 5:30, said good-bye to Issam with thanks for a wonderful tour, Air France flight to Paris left at 7:45.

Finally made it to Paris. Arrived last evening on the Eurostar. First task was to negotiate the crowd of taxi touters outside the train station. We even had one gentleman who looked like an official information officer (he even had an official looking tag hanging around his neck) try to convince us that we should take a private mini cab because a …
... to do this overview tour at night because the traffic is so much less - you can really cover a lot of ground.
Well, the most captivating sight is for sure the Eiffel Tower, so you'll see a lot of those photos in this album. The good news is that the rain has stopped, and we hope we've seen the last of it! It is now after 2am, and we're out the door at 8am to see Versailles - so good night!
... complained about the hard work it was to climb up the Champs Elyse, and then the peak of the bridge at the Eifel tower. We all looked at her, and Brian said his bike was great in the lowest gear. Cheryl goes...... gears? and she is only a bottle blonde!)
The ride back along the Seine was great. Again the waters edge had cycle paths, and areas for activities, which are fully utilised. Every so many meters along the way there are these great ...
... approach an airport worker to find out where the nearest restroom and activities desk was. "Bonjour Mesdames. Où se trouvent les toilettes?" I asked proudly. I probably sounded like a 2 year old speaking to this lady, but none the less, I asked in French. *about 30 seconds of French flowed from this ladies mouth* she was smiling and seemed eager to help. But I had no clue what she said 8-/. Darn, well that was a fail. French 1 = Johnny 0 With a ...
