Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Royal Saint-Honore Paris
We really liked it.
While the rooms were smallish, they were well furnished and very clean. The staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast is served in a pleasant, spacious room with good choice and spread. We found the location just great. We enjoyed our stay and will definately go back!
Great Location, Average amenities
My wife and I stayed at the Royal St-Honore for four nights in October 2004. The location is terrific, near Place Vendome, the Tuileries and Metro Line 1. However, the amenities are quite average, especially considering the premium paid for its location. We requested a quiet room well in advance, and even with fully sound-proofed windows and heavy drapes it was hard to ignore the carwash across rue St-Honore! I know there are similar options for better value. Not recommended.
Glad to check out of here.....
I stayed there recently for 4 nights. I got a special price off their website for 190 euros per night which included breakfast. The pros of this place are that it is very centrally located. The cons are: 1) the room decor is similar to that of a Best Western, 2) The concierge service is pitiful (as another reviewer wrote) - poor fellow hardly spoke English, 3) the hotel uses a "card" system which must be used to go not only in a room but also in the elevator - and often malfunctions. So you find yourself, in an enclosed elevator without being able to go anywhere., 4) their "internet" system is very expensive (5 euros for 15 minutes) and constantly crashes so that you cannot really get much done in your allotted time and have to keep buying more time.
I would not stay here again. For the same price, I know I could do better.
Our Paris Oasis
I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a good quality, well positioned place to stay in Paris. The Hotel is within easy walking distance to the Louvre, Jardin des Juileries, as well as the Opera area and some great shopping spots. You can also walk to the Champs Elysees, Eiffel Tower, Arc De Triomphe, probably about 10 minute walk or go the other direction to Notre Dame Cathedral. The rooms are very clean, roomy and the bathrooms are well appointed with luxurious bathrobes. The staff were very helpful and courteous. Breakfast each morning was served to us by the lovely Para, who made our stay memorable as well as enjoyable.
This was our first trip to Paris and we felt very lucky to have chosen such a great hotel.
We love PARIS and France.
Nice hotel, but concierge service is lacking
We stayed for 4 nights at the Hotel Royal Saint Honore. The location is excellent; we walked (with two young children) to most everything. The Louvre and Jardins des Tuileries were just two blocks away. We had a two bedroom suite with 2 bathrooms (250 euro per night, this is an excellent price and they were willing bargin the original offer down). The rooms were spacious, well laid out, marble bathrooms-- very nice.
My only gripe is about the concierge service; I found it to be completely useless. Not apathetic, but incorrect information.
So go and enjoy, just don't depend on the concierge for directions, recommendations or guidance of any sort.
Clean, Nice, and Great Location!
We stayed here for 5 days over Valentine's Day and were very pleased.
The location is great - within walking distance of many sights. And only a 2-minute walk to the Tuileries metro stop for farther sights.
The room was clean and nicely furnished. The marble bathroom was small, but very clean and modern. Our room was on the streetside, but still quiet (never heard street noise during the night). Staff was friendly and spoke English. The breakfast buffet was included with our rate and was very good. Included scrambled eggs, sausage or ham, croissants, fresh fruit, pastries, cereal, yogurt, and more. We would definitely stay here again.
You wanna stay HERE!
We were in Paris the first week in December and found this Hotel to be just wonderful! Our room was snug but classy, the bathroom was very accomodating, and the heating/air conditioning system was quiet. No traffic noise! Breakfast was typical and good. The staff was excellent.
But the location, ooo la la! We'd stay here again in a Michigan Minute!
Small, friendly, clean hotel
My two sisters and I stayed at the Royal St. Honore last September 2003. We stayed at their junior suite. Generally it was a pleasant stay at the hotel although we found the beds quite small. They had two single beds put together in the main room but each single bed was narrower than normal. We had two bath/showers in our room which was a big help. Room size a bit small for a junior suite. One lesson learned is not to rely on the internet photos which makes the hotel rooms look big and inviting. Overall, the hotel is in a good location, staff friendly, hotel was clean although nothing fancy. They have a unique security system not found in most hotels where you need your room key to operate the elevator which gives feeling of safety. Honestly, I think this hotel should have 3 stars rating instead of 4 stars considering the size of the hotel, size of the rooms.
Royal St. Honore clean and friendly
Just got back from a 5-day stay at the Royal St. Honore. The hotel is in a great location, on a reasonably quiet street, though there's construction going on locally. We got a junior suite for ourselves and our 2 teens. Our room was fine, with a small sitting area, but the beds are rock-hard and they put 2 twins together to theoretically make a larger bed, though the beds are made up separately. The second room of the suite is miniscule, barely enough room to walk around the foot of the sofa when its two twin mattresses are pulled out. There's Playstation available through the TV, but the games are in French. The staff is very helpful, everyone speaks excellent English. The hotel has an excellent air-conditioning system. There are a couple of shops and cafes within a 3 block area where you can buy breakfast if you don't get the buffet breakfast included in your hotel price. The closest Metro stop is Tuilleries, an easy 2-block walk.

... at another little paris cafe and then went to another one for dessert. We have eaten so many crossiants etc. We have had a great time in Paris and I really do like Paris. Looking forward to coming home however it would be better if it didn't take so long, we will see you all soon.
Lots of love, Peter, Tricia and Danielle. ...
... and paperwork, but I have been able to take in once again some of the wonders of this city. I already spent my first evening relaxing with new friends on the Champ de Mars, spent my first night out in St. Michel, and went on my first adventure to IKEA (a huge deal for Parisians). Many more stories will be shared on here as even if nobody reads it, I will have it for me to look back on in the future.
... centre of the Paris's star or Etiole.
The arch also marks the entrance to one of the most famous streets in the world, The Champs Elysees.
Although I have a memory of Champs as a street filled with high end fashion with even the car lights sparkling like diamonds and rubies it would seem that this has changed dramatically. The street now boasts a multitude of fast food outlets and middle market shopping, packed with gawkers and hawkers it doesn't have any ...
... pretty windy and chilly, but we were too taken with the view to even notice that. We had a perfect panorama of the entire city of Paris on the clear night and we managed to spot out landmarks like the Louvre, Arc de Triumph, Notre Dame, Montparnasse and the Sacré-Coeur in the midst of the evening darkness and distant street lights.
Around 12:00 we decided to return to the base of the tower and head home. We discovered ...
