Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Little Regina Paris
A French friend recommended this simple hotel which is a 2 minute walk from Gare de l'Est. My wife and I stayed in April for only 80 euros/night. A great deal. Very clean. Very pleasant staff. Ask for a room with a balcony overlooking the Boulevard de Strassbourg (there are just a few of them). Free 15-min access to internet using their laptop in lobby. Highly recommended hotel for the price.
Great Location and Oh So French!
We thought we were staying at a different hotel but things worked out well here. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was small but clean- added to our Paris experience. The best part was the location- right across from the Gare d' Este. We jumped on the Metro for the whole weekend we were there.
We stayed for three nights, the Hotel was fine and the staff excellent.
There are three excellent (affordable) Resturants within 30 metres.
The Metro Is 20 metres from the Hotel. We reccomend the Metro/bus pass 13.70 euros for 2 days.
We would reccomend the Hotel for people travling on a budget.

a recommander ..
I had a cozy little room with a nice view of the hustle & bustle of the city below. I was pretty high up, so the traffic noise wasn't a concern for me at all. The staff was very helpful, especially since I only knew, maybe, 2 sentences in French! I absolutely LOVED the fact that they had free wi-fi in all of the rooms. It was really nice to not have to track down an Internet cafe. Also, the proximity to the subway lines was perfect. There was an entrance right at the foot of the hotel.
Like another reviewer, I also was surprised by the breakfast charge. This was my first trip to Europe and this was the only hotel out of three where I had to pay for breakfast. The other two were in Italy, so maybe this is common in France?
Other than that little hiccup, I had a great stay and I would stay there again!
Wonderful Hotel. I loved it!
Wonderful hotel with excellent service. Staff was very friendly and helpful. I definitely would stay here again and recommend Hotel Little Regina to everyone.
Actually Little yet pretty good
Hotel's location is a major plus. Rooms/lift/reception are all small but offer you a satisfactory accomodation on the price you are willing to spend.
Its truly a great value for money.
A little run down, but not bad for the money
For the price, this wasn't a bad hotel, but I'm not sure I'd recommend it to anyone else, though.
Little Regina is just across the street from Gare de L'est, so I was originally concerned about noise. This concern was not entirely unwarranted, as the street below the hotel was very busy (and an active bus stop), such that if we kept the window open to sleep, I needed earplugs. However, if the window was closed, the room was very quiet, however the exposed hot water pipes in the bathroom tended to heat the entire room, so we felt like we needed to keep the windows open (late September). The area of town also seemed a little sketchy. I wasn't wild about wandering around after dark - not that we had any problems. It is far removed from the quieter, touristy part of the city.
The room itself, although spacious, felt fairly run down, as there was paint peeling and exposed wires near the lights; the bathroom, however, seemed fairly nice. The hotel had a small spiral staircase and a tiny elevator. Breakfast was good: croissants, baguette, coffee, and cheese, however we didn't realize it was costing us 9 Euros per person - had we known this, we would've found a café instead. That said, the staff was very nice and helpful, and fluent in English, which helped when my wife's French hit its limits. They were able to advise us on day trips from Paris, which was very useful.
This hotel was very close to both Gare de L'est and Gare du Nord, as well as a Metro stop directly in front of the hotel, so that was very convenient.

... we decided to keep walking and ended up at the Louvre. We were totally amazed by it’s size and architecture. The carving in the stone really intrigued me. We never went into the museum and didn’t bother to go and see Mona Lisa today and may do it if time permits another day. The glass Pyramids were interesting to look at and certainly a weird thing to find in the courtyard. Walking through from there, we ended up in some gardens & ...
... Mind you it was not a typical hunting lodge. It had gold gilded roofs and fences! It took 45 years to complete! Unfortunately because it was Sunday, the tour was extremely crowded but the Hall of Mirrors was well worth the pushing and shoving to get from one room to the next. And our tour guide was extremely good and informative. I now know all there is to know about the kings and queens of those days! At our return trip back to our hotel, ...
... so cool because the entrance to the apartment was in a gated courtyard right off the street. It was a really modern place and our host Pierre-Alexis did a great job of incorporating an art wall of friend pictures and cool lighting while keeping the feel of the space open. Rob had to work from home on Friday so I made plans to meet up with a DSP girl, Mandy, from Florida who was studying abroad in Paris. I figured out how to take the metro by myself but didn't know what type ...
... buildings, and statues that seem to be everywhere.. Had to have lunch at an outside cafe.. Then back to hotel for relaxing afternoon. Enjoyed the free coffee/snacks put on by the Hotel from 1pm to 9 pm every afternoon... Very nice. Took my book down and spent a lovely couple of hours reading, drinking coffee, and 'snacking'. Pizza was dinner from the little 'mum and dad' store just down the road.. Dinner for only EUR 11.50... Good deal. ...
... the family (guys, you can all rest easy now!) and we met a gorgeous little French volunteer who gave us a detailed history of some of the art work. Having already walked for hours, we decided a taxi was the go to the Eiffel Tower, where we had a reserved ticket for sunset, to the top floor. Busting with excitement at our special reserved preview we were a little taken aback at having to share the lift with forty others, to the top floor. For those who ...
