      Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Au Royal Cardinal Paris

      A good Parisian find


      I've stayed here three times and it's been very good each time. The rooms are spacious for Paris and have nice windows that open up. The bathrooms are clean. Free coffee or hot chocolate in the morning plus a croissant. The location is really awesome. Easy walk to Notre Dame and two metro stops are within a block or so. Overall really good for the price.

      Very Pleasant


      We stayed 3 nights in November at the Royal Cardinal and found it very pleasant. The room, while small, was clean and the bathroom looked like it had been recently updated. The front desk was helpful and friendly.

      We kept forgetting to ask for pillows before the night crew, however - so we made due with the neck pillows. We booked through the internet for a very good rate (90 Euros/day) and felt that with the ideal location - we got great value for the money.

      Great location


      This hotel is in a great location as mentioned in other reviews. Very close to many restaurants and 2 Metro stops. Walking distance to Notre Dame Cathedral and the Seine. We had a Quad room and it was big (2 double beds) and had a very clean bathroom. As mentioned before make sure you ask for real pillows...didn't ask the first night and couldn't sleep well. The staff was helpful and nice. They do not have internet access however there is an internet cafe nearby. There are many French patisseries for breakfast but also an American style Diner a few doors down if you get sick of eating pain au chocolat for breakfast. There is also a shuttle to the airport for 17 euros/person. No issues with noise unless windows were open.

      Good value for the money


      For the money, this hotel is just fine. We stayed for 3 nights. We found the room to be clean and well-sized. The windows are nice and thick to block any street noise. Centrally located to the Metro and shops etc. Front desk is very helpful. Remember to ask for "real pillows" they only supply a neck roll on the bed. There is no air conditioning, but it is a good, simple hotel for a few nights.

      Ah, Paris!


      My wife and I stayed in the Royal Cardinal for five nights in June, 2003, and enjoyed it immensely. The service was great and the staff was very professional and friendly. The room was clean and comfortable.

      In-room breakfast service was timely and tasty. The location could not be better. The hotel is within three blocks of the Seine, the Roman amphitheater, more than twenty cafés and restaurants, Metro line, and shopping. We would stay again.

      Royal cardinal


      We stayed at Royal Cardinal. We havd booked 1 triple and 1 double room through internet. Everything was very good and close to the descriptions that we had through internet. It was clean and tidy. The reception was very helpfull and the region of the hotel was very good and central, with 2 metro sations and a lot of caffe and restaurants around. I recommended it.

      We then walk the stairs to the second observation level. Wow the view is so much better up there. The summit is closed. I am secretly relieved because we would of done it if we were able, and that required a lot more energy than I had in the tank today.
      We headed back down to the base.

      The place I'm staying is probably the best yet. It is a fairly new apartment on the ground floor, with a small garden off the deck, and the whole place is just very modern and ...

All we wanted was a nice cooked brekky but apparently Dubai doesn't do your stock standard bacon and steak and eggs seemed to much at 5 in the morning. So tracked down the closest maccas to get a bacon and egg mcmuffin (which was more a hamsteak-type-thing and egg mcmuffin). John trip to the loo ...

      Went to Euro Disney yesterday and even though we were all a little tired we came away thinking that the previous days experience was much better for the kids.
      The park seems to be a little outdated and Stacie who has visited the original in the US says it wasn't as well laid out.
      Nevertheless the kids still came away having enjoyed themselves and the weather ...
