Fabulous 8,8 From 247 reviews

Exceptional 10,0
4 nights in Paris!
An excellent stay. Great staff, great location. Two points for constructive criticism. Our room was quite warm and we weren't certain our air conditioning was working (thankfully it was winter so it didn't matter and we didn't raise it with staff) and our main shower was a little weak and possibly in need or repair. Nevertheless would still recommend. Lovely, quirky, pleasant staff. Perfect.

Our first choice
This is our second stay at this hotel, because it suits us perfectly, great service, comfortable room, quiet location near great places to visit.
Christopher, au4 night romance trip
Very good 8,0
Quality hotel in a great location for a reasonable price. The room was much larger than expected, definitely larger than a typical European hotel room. The staff were all friendly and helpful. They did vary quite a bit in their English proficiency, but all were capable. Overall a good experience.

Super tiny - clogged shower, don't eat the food.
The location was great, walking distance to many things, however the hotel was beyond tiny. No room for our suitcases and closet was so small. The shower would not drain and overflowed everytime we took a shower. We had to wait a long time for water to go down. Our glass dresser was broken and although the staff was kind and friendly, the breakfast we ate on day one was decent however the cherry tomatoes were full of mold, cucumbers were very old and should have been thrown out. Attention to detail especially for food being placed out would be my biggest concern. We did not eat breakfast there again.

Location is the only redeeming quality
Friendly and helpful staff and location is great. However the hotel desperately needs updates and repairs. Just to highlight a few - toilet seats were permanently stained with chemicals, shower area walls exposed huge cracks that will cause building damage from all the water leaking into it. Towels were so low quality that after drying with it, I had to peel off the layer of white dust off of me. Frankly, this was not a hotel quality, ensuite hostels offer much more than this. Bit of a disappointment really.

Quirky hotel in the heart of Paris
This is a fun quirky hotel near the Louvre and several nice restaurants. There is an honor system wine bar/snack area open all the time, and a simple but filling breakfast buffet also on the honor system. The front desk staff were helpful and attentive. Quiet room but smelled a bit of sewage. Our mirrored desk was shattered on the top, but the front desk said they had not had a chance to change it out before our arrival. This is a great little hotel for the adventurous. It is a small boutique hotel, so do not expect anything like the larger chains.
