      Le location est fantastique mais l'hôtel est défraîchie.

      A good place to stay with children.


      Our family of 5 (2 adults, twins aged 5 and 1 yr. old baby) just spent 3 nights at this hotel (5/27/04-5/31/04). A basically pleasant experience. We did not eat the breakfast in the is our deal:

      One staffer did speak to me in a harsh tone when I checked in saying that the room was for 3 people and asking how many were we. I told him that I had discussed this in GREAT detail with Fatima via phone and email prior to making the reservation. The woman at the front desk stood up for me and said but they are just small children. He said okay and that was the end of it. This upset me initially but I soon forgot about it.

      Our room was on the ground floor (Room #11). It was spacious enough, clean and comfortable. The long hallway in our room provided a nice spot for the stroller, and the closets were big enough to hold the carry on suitcases. Though sparse on decor, the beamed ceiling and brick walls lent a nice feel to the room. The support staff was helpful and always nice. Also, we did notice other families with children in the hotel.

      The boulangerie (Julian) around the corner was voted #1 in Paris. The pain au chocolat and tarte frambois were EXCELLENT! In addition to the boulangerie, there was a fruit stand, expresso bar, cheese shop and money exchange store front all within a block of the hotel. On Rue de Rivoli there are tons of shops for shoes, clothes etc. But the quieter streets on the sides hold the secret special loot.

      Since our main objectives were to eat pain au chocolat, see the Louvre and visit friends on the outskirts of town, this was the ideal location. The Metro is VERY close and is a main station (Les Halles) from where you can reach many destinations. The food nearby is authentic, reasonable and delicious. The Louvre is in easy walking distance.

      We can not wait to return to Paris with the children!

      Great Value for our Family Room


      We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights and travelling with 3 young kids, we needed to look for a room that could accommodate all of us comfortably. This family room in this hotel worked really well for us with 3 single beds and 1 queen size bed.

      The positives (by European standards): Fairly Spacious, Moderate Prices, Clean Bathrooms, Good Mattresses/Beds, has all the basics covered (a/c, fridge, 20-inch TV) but nothing luxurious. Also, great location and friendly staff.

      The negatives: Hardly any closet space, windows with no view, tiny elevator ... fortunately in our case, these were not priorities so the hotel and room worked very favourably.

      Expect simple 3-star standard but clean, basic facilities and you will not be dissapointed.

      Finally for 10 euros for breakfast, you can do better getting a croissant across the street.

      Nice staff but below average rooms.


      We were somewhat disappointed. The facility is old and run-down. The rooms/bathrooms have not been updated recently and are fairly run-down so it's difficult to really relax here. We stayed for 5 days and were more than ready to leave. Having said that, the staff was very helpful, spoke English fluently. The breakfast was a little pricey for the very limited offering. We will not return to this hotel. There's a very nice Best Western 1 street over we wish we had known about.

      Style and Location


      I have visited this hotel over a dozen times. The last time, one of the staff loaned me (gave me) 10 euros to catch the RER for my subway to CDG airport. I am sure he did not know me from my previous trips. The staff is incredibly nice. Each visit I try my french, the staff sends me back english with enthusiasm. The rooms are clean and acceptable for young people. (The rooms are small.) Each shower has a steam/ whirlpool device. Bathrooms are modern and white. Note: This is not an expensive hotel. Very basic sheets and fittings. All rooms are quiet from street noise. The best rooms face the street. The location is great if you like the Right Bank. I never used the tiny elevator. The lobby design is modern. I believe the price, overall design, location, and staff give you a nice value.

      Great Hotel!


      We stayed here in May '02. I thought it was a great location. The room was large, we got a family room which had 3 twins and a double. The bathroom was very clean, all tile with whirlpool tub and steam bath/shower. The room was done in Toile wallpaper and I thought it was very Parisian and charming. The staff was great and very helpful.

      Didn't have the breakfast so I can't comment on that, we were in Paris, I preferred to eat in the cafes.

      Mediocre at best


      Tiny elevator, MINIMAL decor, but very helpful and english-speaking staff. The breakfast offered is NOT worth the 10 Euros per person! Rather go to any cafe outside for breakfast. Location excellent with lots of shops and restaurants. Samaritaine (big Nordstrom-like store) is one block away. Nearest metros are "Louvre-Rivole" and "Les Halles" which has x-fers to everywhere. Room was painted yellow but was TINY TINY TINY and bathroom was small, but it was quite clean and modern. There was a "steam" shower in the bathroom but it wasn't working. Also -- a bummer -- we were assigned the 5th floor when the elevator/lift only goes to the 4th floor. Which was not fun considering they had no bell boy and we had to carry our luggage up and down. Bed was comfortable but was just two twin mattresses pushed together. And it sagged in the 'middle.' This is a two star hotel with clean bathrooms. Hallways were old and dull. People who worked there were nice and smiled a lot.

      Great hotel!


      Very clean, comfortable, perfect location. Not really quirky or charming -- more business-y and a bit impersonal -- but we enjoyed our stay. The whirlpool bath was a nice extra touch. We got it for about $120 USD a night.

      Enjoyed our last day in this beautiful city. It's a packed town...tourists have flooded the city and the Tour de France is ending today with the finish line near where we will be. We had to pack up and leave our hotel early to try and cover a lot before the crowds wake up.

      We did a walking tour of Montmartre (my favorite place the last time I visited) and Basilica of the Sacred Heart. We were given free time after that so that all the groups could do what they wanted. We ...

      ... they made me purchase a new ticket. And of course the station had no wifi, so in order to let my cousin know I was going to be two hours late (she was picking me up in Brussels), I had to use cell data on my phone. I knew it was going to cost a bit extra to do that. But that one message I sent ended up being the same amount as the second bus ticket I had just bought. That was the most expensive nap I have ever taken. Never taking a nap again. I made it to Brussels ...

      What an amazing view!!!

      Just as we got to the bottom the light show began. We hurried to he side so we could view the tower as it sparkled. Incredibly beautiful. We continued viewing as we walked away from the tower towards the Metro station. On the way we fond a Crepe stand and enjoyed our first street crepe. We headed down into the metro tunnel but found out it was the wrong type (metro ...
