Historical Traveler Reviews La Manufacture Paris
This hotel was great!
It was small but very clean and cozy, definatly enough space for a couple. Very clean bathroom with full bath, quint little balcony, friendly service and best of all inexpensive! It was also close to a metro stop.
The hotel services were excellent and the elevator was appreciated!
I also felt very safe (across from a police station.....yet still so quiet!) there was no loud traffic noise at all!
reception was very helpful with directions, maps ect.
Overall I would stay here again for sure next time.....best found gem on the whole trip!
We reserved one of the larger rooms on the top floor in August, having heard that the smaller ones were really small. There is a comfortable amount of space, the front desk was nice and courteous, and our room was clean. One forgotten wake-up call and no coffee bags (shortage?)for several days despite several reminders were the only problems. Yet, friendliness and politeness which are precious commodities in Paris, more than made up for it.
it's probably the best hotel around the area if you have to stay near Place D'italie.
Cute and cozy little rooms
I stayed at this hotel May 2003 and paid
Nice but Small
La Manufacture. Ah La Manufacture. What can be said about this hotel.
Taxis in Paris did not know it very well. It is located in the Place DÍtalie area. We arrived there for a 2 day visit to Paris. Any longer i would have moved to a larger hotel. The Rooms and bathroom were tiny but the ambience and the hotel was quaint. The staff were helpful and the breakfast was delicious. Proximity to all the major sites needed at least a 15-20 minute walk. No problems we love walking. Overall the hotel was clean and staff were very polite but the rooms can make you feel claustrophobic. I would recommend this hotel to others but only for a maximum stay of 2 nights. Value for money was reasonable. The decor was modern and standard of furnishings in the common areas was certainly different. We first heard of this hotel from the Hip Hotels Books "Budget". Would we stay there again. Well if i was on weekend break from Europe with my wife maybe. but not when you have travelled 3,000 miles from Dubai where you are used to having more space.
I was dismayed to find out recently that the Manufacture is featured in one of Ypma's "Hip Hotels" book. What's hip about this hotel I am at a loss to say. The double room I and my boyfriend were given was really poky - there was hardly enough space to walk around the bed, and while doing my hair and my make up I had to keep the bathroom door open, so that my elbow would not hit it! The furniture was made of cheap and nasty MDF board, not even disguised! I cannot remember how much we paid, but it was by no means cheap enough to be qualify to be in Ypma's "Budget" book. I would never stay there again.
From the moment we arrived the hotel staff were charming and welcoming.
They were very helpful and knowledgable, and went out of their way to be friendly. The rooms are tiny but cosy and well appointed. We had a large balcony (5th floor) which helped. The bathroom in our room was not ideal as the shower drained poorly which gave you about 5 minutes before flooding but otherwise is fine. We extended our stay buy 2 days and the hotel staff were accomodating. We didn't try the breakfast as there are a number of restaurants and cafes nearby, which also allowed us to eat conveniently when too exhasuted by site-seeing to venture further. C'est fantastique!
Very pleasant hotel
Very good value for money, very comfortable and well appointed hotel and room. Although compact, the room contains everything you need and are nicely decorated. The location is idea for touring Paris - very close to the Metro at Place D'Italie, lovely walks to the Left Bank, Rue Mouffetard, Pantheon, Luxembourg Gardens etc. Great Italian food and lively atmosphere at Monte Cassino restaurant across the road. I would definitely come here again.
Very charming hotel, good value
This hotel was part of a package deal and we were really looking for something cheap and were a little worred it would be horrible.
Considering the low prices, this is a great hotel. The basic rooms are TINY (which might be a shock to some American tourists in particular), as is the bathroom, but extremely well-kept and well-appointed. The enormous windows and miniature 'balcony' really added a lot to the room. If you have a bit more money to spend you might want to get one of the fancy rooms on the top floor which are supposed to be bigger, although I haven't seen them myself. The staff was very sweet and the breakfast was delicious. We didn't spend much time around the hotel itself, although it is a cute area with some wonderful food. The metro ride into the city center and most of the sights is very short (certainly not a half hour ride, as a previous reviewer claims) and, coming from London, a much nicer experience than the tube.
Loved the Manufacture
I have stayed at the Hotel de Manufacture twice and thought it was great. The rooms may be small but contain everything you want. The staff are very helpful and pleasant. It is in a great place to use as a base to see Paris with a lot of the attractions being within walking distance (if you like long, leisurely walks!). It is in a quiet street off Rue Gobelins and has lots of shops and cafes and is a few minutes walk from Rue Mouffetard - what more could you ask for? The breakfast is basic but lots of it and there is a bar although I never used it.
Hotel la Manufacture, Neighbourhood 13, Paris. It's fine. Functional. Location-wise, out of ten, four, five max. Reliant heavily upon the metro. Easily a 30 minute journey to the Champs Elyssey and that's on a good day. The area in which La Manufacture is located boasts none of the steadfast Parisian prides and is run-down and rather characterless. The hotel staff are lovely, very friendly, helpful. The hotel is clean if not in need of a good refurbishment. Particularly the shabby carpets and upholstery. Rooms are housekept on a daily basis. This hotel I sourced from the Herbert Ypma "Hip Hotels" book but really, it does not belong there. Not at all. There are hotels in Paris that should be visited before this one that's for sure. The rooms are ridiculously pokey and small and the undersized foyer area desperately needs a shake-up. Whilst la Manufacture is clean and safe, it is not good value for money and the location is less than favourable. However, there are Turkish Baths in the vacinity which, on a subjective basis, may redeem somewhat. I would not stay there again. Try the Marais area. Central location, grandoise distressed buildings, cobble-stone streets, beautiful style to it, heaving with bustling restaurants and spacious arty bars.

I have listened a lot of stories about love in Paris since I was a child and I can say that the most desired dream was to visit that incredible and glorious city full of romantic. So, in 2008 my wish came true and I went Paris for 10 days. Actually such type of time length is not enough to fully enjoy the beauty of the city, however, I did my best. I can not forget to mention the town's features ...
... the sunset before we finally decided to head down and get some food. We wandered around trying to avoid drunken American tourists until we found a nice place that had poulet frites on the menu, something Riley, Quin, and I were all craving. The food was pretty decent and mom had a really good salad. After dinner we shared a bowl of ice cream and then satisfiedly (definitely not a word) walked back to our place for the ...
... The time passed quickly.
For the seven hour flight to Paris we were in economy. I made note of the line of people going to business class and knew all too well that this leg of the journey would be very different. Another breakfast was eaten just to pass some time. I watched some movies; rather I watched something of many movies, and unsuccessfully tried to sleep. Lunch I ate as well, though I was not really hungry; once again it was done to pass some time. We ...

... it seemed like an overreaction, but after spending only 2 hours in the Louvre, jostled, pushed and constantly bumped into by Chinese tourists, we understand the issues that are arising. We can tell you that any time we went to a popular tourist attraction, we had the same unpleasant experience. We would also note that the crowds disproportionately congregate around the “famous” sites. For example, there were no Chinese tourists at all in the antiquities ...
