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.

... little tidbits on what I see. Well, the Louvre does have headsets for €5. But you have to be under 40 to know how to operate it. It is an actual Nintendo DS something or other...and you have to know what all those AXYZ buttons do. And it locates you and takes you to what you want to see...and then you can see 3d images of the art...Etc. IN THEORY! But if you can't operate it...like moi...then it just is no good!

Even the station at Gare du Nord was not crowded at all). We exited from Chatelet Les Halles and walked to the flat. Patrick was charming, as always, and had a bottle of wine for us upon the ready.
