Hotel Royal Saint-Honore
Travel Blogs from Paris
Après un tour de métro, nous sommes arrivés à notre hôtel (de Castiligione). J'avais un mauvais présentiment de la réservation faite par expédia et j'avais raison... L'hôtel ne trouvait pas ma réservation... Et à grande surprise le premier hôtel réservé par expédia ne trouve pas notre réservation non plus.
Disneyland was the most exciting part of my visit! The rides were spectacular, Everything feels family friendly, The parades are magical and the whole thing just makes you feel like a child again! Disneyland is definitely a must on your itinerary.
... bad – there’s a line to get a ticket, then a line to get on the first elevator, then a line to get on the second elevator, then lines to get down. Walking down is viable; walking up is likely to be more work than fun. Also, you don’t actually need to go to the top; the view is not much different at the top than it is at the second floor, and I actually think it is better lower because things are closer to you and you can see them better.

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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
