The Five Hotel
Travel Blogs from Paris
Finally, the Paris of the France.
After visiting the Paris of the north (Tromso), Paris of the East (Prague), who cares where the south one is, it was great to finally arrive. I'd had high expectations for Paris, and thankfully it did not disappoint.
I was warned about the Parisian folk being snobby and uptight. I've been staying …
Today we're catching the train to Rome, we caught a taxi this morning and got on our train, we got a sleeper because the train trip is overnight and 15 hours long. We did nothing other than this.
Today we went to the Louvre Museum but it is shut on tuesdays so we walked to the Eiffel Tower but again the line was to long, we got an ice cream and by the time we had finished walking around the shops it was dinner time.
Today it was raining, so we couldn't do much. My Dad and I went to Pompidou Center of Modern Art while Mum and Alex went to Gallaries Lafayette (a department store in Paris), in Pompidou there was two special exhibits one on Alexander Calder and the other on Kandinski. In the art gallery there was many paintings but it was considered a small …
Today we tried to go to the Eiffel Tower, but the line was too long, so we decided to go to Sacre Coure, a church on top of a hill. To get to the top of the hill, you either have to catch a train or walk up the steps, we caught the train up but walked down.
How has this hotel rated in the past?
Great little hotel, brilliant location hidden away in the latin quarter. Very friendly and helpful staff that catered to all my questions / needs. Very comfortable room, great neighbourhood, places to eat, drink, etc away from all the tourist traps. This is living like a local. This is the only place I would stay in Paris. I would highly recommend it to anyone, just make sure it's not booked out for when I return.

Bonsoir Mes Amis
We stayed at The Five Hotel for two days over the Christmas season. We were welcomed by friendly staff and a beautiful atmosphere. The hotel is small but its part of the charm. The decor was unlike anything we had ever seen before and the attention to detail was perfect. Great price, great location. Amazing hotel. Will definately be back.
We knew this hotel had just opened and through a friend who lives in Paris very nearby the hotel we decided to book for 2 nights (also because of the district).
J'ai séjourné par déjà deux fois dans cet hôtel au cours de séjours professionnels sur Paris.
Idéalement placé à proximité de lieux typiques tels que Mouffetard ou les gobelins, l'hôtel est facile à trouver et se situe dans une rue très calme.
La décoration des chambres que j'ai loué est tout simplement très belle, moderne et confortable.
J'ai adoré les lumières tamisées ainsi que la lampe diffuseur d'odeurs.
Le personnel est accueillant et particulièrement la personne à charge du petit déjeuner puisqu'elle vous accueille avec un large sourire tout en respectant mon réveil difficile; le choix du buffet du petit-déjeuner est suffisant pour satisfaire mes besoins en variétés de pains frais.
I've just spent 4 days in the hotel. The rooms are small but it seems like its a new hotel. Great friendly people working there. This is a cool boutique hotel (WIFI is for free). Jon
Chic Unique Boutique
Without a doubt the best hotel I have ever stayed at. The room was decorated to the highest standard - with a LOWE TV! Needed internet access to check our flights home - they lent us a very flash laptop F.O.C. Loved the LED room numbers.
One factor I don't think people who have slated this hotel have taken into consideration is the price. It cost 2 of us around 300euros for 3 nights with breakfast. All other hotels of the same price were really tacky and lacked any character.
A bit on the small side maybe but didn't bother us - made it more romantic....
So for anyone else who goes for form over function - this is THE hotel.
J ai adoré !
Le Five est un hôtel très agréable, très original que je vais m'empresser de recommander auprès de mes amis pour leurs prochains séjours dans le 5ème.
Un grand merci à toute l'équipe pour sa gentillesse et son efficacité.
Tres trendy !
This is a clean, trendy hotel in a nice area of Paris. Although on the edge of the 5th it is only a couple of minutes walk from the Rue Mouffetard & 5 minutes up the hill to Pantheon. The rooms are on the small side but this is more than made up for by the quality of the furniture, fittings & bathroom - very funky ! Apparently the hotel was only opened in October 2006 & everything looks & feels brand new
My girlfriend & I had a great romantic weekend in November & I would definitely recommend it for anyone going to Paris for a short break.
Merci beaucoup le Five Hotel !
Excelent Value & Service
Stayed at The Five in December 2006. The place is really nice; the room's design is really peculiar yet very enjoyable. We stayed in the room with the suspended bed. The sleeping was excellent, no noise, no annoyance. The room lighting is particularly impressive. The hotel is definitely a small one, but the service is really good: everyone speaks excellent English, is very friendly and willing to help. The location is particularly good for those who love Paris' Saint Germain area, with the main boulevard only 20min walk away. I would definitely recommend the place!
No restaurant- no room service- tiny rooms
The internet site is really missleading...
The only nice thing where the fiber lights, which could be switched on the night.
We had a superior room and even the size of that was really small. The suitcases wouldn't feet in the room and when you opened the room door you faced the bed.
Terrible size wise.
The other thing is that there is no restaurant and no room service.
There is only brekfast which was quite good.
The last day I asked for a wake up call and they did not wake us up and I almost lost my flight.
I would never go back
More style than substance
We stayed 2 nights at this Hotel.
Location is ok. Couple of mins walk from RER\Metro stations. Very much on the edge of the 5th.
Hotel certainly has stylish decor however the rooms are tiny. You could only get in one side of the bed as the other was pushed up against the wall. We had problems with our window shutters (they jammed open) which were sorted by hotel staff. When we returned to our room at 4pm it still hadn't been made up. The staff were friendly but appeared inexperienced. The only restaurant recommendation given was for a Moroccan one round the corner from the hotel - poor when you think of the wide choice of places in the city.
We wouldn't stay here again.
