Perfect place for family trip

We had an apartment, one bedroom with twin beds, a living room with sofa bed and attached kitchen and a bathroom, which is located on the third floor (2nd in France) in the hotel. It is located just 2 minutes from Paris Austerlitz metro station and very easy to move to other place in Paris as well as to access to the old historic area on foot. With using RER Paris Austerlitz line, we could go to the Versailles palace just in about 30 minutes or so. There is a natural history museum and we can see the animal skeletons through the window. They don’t change towels everyday but provide on the request. Friendly, English-speeking Madam and Mousier. When you get there, try to arrive between 4pm to 7 pm.

Hotel Du Roy was great!

The front desk clerks were friendly. We never really saw them much. The rooms and hotel were not fancy or formal; what you see is what you get. For the price it was clean, comfortable and excellently located to a major metro station and across the street from the park, zoo, and museum which is great when you have kids.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Every night we would go for a walk and there's an awesome greek restaurant that was always open, friendly and prepared us lamb gyros, sausage sandwiches, fries, etc. Great for a midnite snack.

Could have lived there.

The front desk was very helpful. The room was spacious enough with a kitchenette, which helped keep the food budget down. Hotel was across the street from Jardins des Plantes and around the corner from Gare D'Austerlitz. Many restaurants close as well as a bakery and grocery.

Fantastic solution to stay in Paris

Hotel Les Jardin du Roy has a great location! Near you already have some of Paris ex-libris - le Jardin des Plantes and the Natural Musuem are the hotel´s close neighbours. You have all kind of Paris trasnportation just a walk away from the hotels door. A supermaket just 5 min from the hotel. For a family with children is the best solution! The small studios provide the solution for your meals which is great (specially considering the cost of an average family meal at a restaurant Paris). You can walk from the hotel to the center (Ile de France, Ile St, Louis) or just take any transportation anywhere you want. I found the Hotel just great and the best solution to visit Paris in every aspects (cheap, good location, friendly for families).

Simple, Quiet & Clean

We had a great stay at this hotel. For the price we understood exactly what we were getting. This is a clean quiet spartan hotel with a friendly staff and an excellent location. It is located close to the Metro, several reasonably priced restaurants, and two grocery stores. It is a pleasant twenty minute walk to Notre Dam and a five minute walk to the water shuttle. The rooms are simply appointed but they were quiet and clean and they have a small kitchenette and a good shower with plenty of hot water. The only disappointment with the hotel was the bed. It is merely a pull out sofa and although it is fairly comfortable it creaks alot when moving around. I would recommend this hotel to anyone with the understanding of the above points.

Safe and comfortable

Loved the french windows that open to the fresh air and the large bathtub. Felt safe and the staff was very helpful. Very close to the Metro, the Seine and a large park.

No frills inexpensive lodging

The accommodations are bare bones, but do include a small kitchenette. There is a coin operated laundry machine but it was initially not working and the unhelpful young woman at the front desk was unwilling to assist. The same young woman did not speak or understand much English, which was not a problem for our French-speaking family, but could be an issue with others. It was difficult to persuade the skeleton staff to make reservations or look up information on attractions. The most serious drawback is that the front desk is manned only part-time. If you arrive in Paris while there is no one there, you will not be able to check in or obtain your room key. You will not even be able to wait in the lobby, since the front door is locked. So, you will need to call ahead and try to coordinate your arrival for a time when they are open. These arrangements will need to be done by phone; the hotel did not respond to my pre-arrival e-mails. The room is cleaned only once per week, and you can obtain clean towels free of charge only during this once-weekly cleaning. Having said all of this, the price was great for our one-bedroom unit, and the location can't be beat. The Jardin des Plantes is literally just across the street; the Gare d'Austerlitz is across the street in another direction, providing easy transportation to anywhere you might want to go; the Seine shuttle boat stop is one block away; a small grocery store is a few steps away and a large grocery store is quite close. Recommended for the budget-conscious self-sufficient traveler or traveling family.

A fantastic family vacation

This hotel was on one way direction; we had a rental car and the parking spot was a real problem. Unable to park on the side of the small street and I have to park the car at a public garage 2 km away from the hotel. The parking fee was so expensive (22 Euro a day, no in and out). The hotel provides no daily clean up and supply items. For security, this hotel provided a pin code at the front entrance after hour. At check out, the receptionist didn't do any paper work because this is an Orbitz reservation, the customer had to deal with Orbitz (right or wrong?). I have no receipt at check-out. This hotel is very close from many restaurants, SNCF train station and Abauto tour (starting at Eiffel and ending at Jardins des plant on the Sein river) this is very good deal for all visitors; this Sein river offered many stop stations along the bank and the visitor is able to get on and off, buy 2 day tickets must be cheaper and more choices to visit such as Eiffel, Notre Dame, Hotel des Invalids, Concore, Jardins des plants etc. This is an outstanding and new improvement at Paris Center.

Convenience of an Apartment

The room was actually a one bedroom apartment which turned out to be great set up for travelling with kids. Plenty of room. There was a small kitchen which allowed us to save on breakfasts. We were lucky to arrive before the receptionist left at 19:00. There was a telephone number to call but there was another guest who arrived after us that wasn't having too much luck. This would have been frustrating after a 20+ hour journey. As this was an apartment, there was no daily cleaning or linen service. This is not mentioned in the hotel summary and for the price, clean towels would have been nice. Otherwise, the location was great, very near the metro and convenient to all. I would recommend it to anyone travelling with children that needs a little extra space and wants to have the ability to do some light cooking in the room.
