old traditonal hotel

The hotel is well located and radiate old traditions. Unfortunately during our stay 20-27.10.2012 there was a major streetwork in front of the hotel ja outside wall reparations in the court side. Also our room needed some refreshing work. Otherwise a pleasant experience, which we are ready to try again next time in Paris.

Try somewhere else

The room I had at this hotel had a HUGE MAJOR problem. The bathroom (alright in itself) was not ventilated to the outside. The result was that both the bathroom AND the room smelled dreadfully of mold and mildew. The problem could be somewhat alleviated by closing the door between the bathroom and the bedroom (which was quite small) and by opening the French doors to the small balcony (a definite plus). The room was Spartan in decoration and small, but it was clean and the maid service was adequate. The location of the hotel is, of course, FANTASTIC, a stone's throw from the Louvre, the Palais Royal, the Tuileries, the Comedie Francaise, and the shoping on the Rue St. Honore. However, I know that, for the price, you can do better.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Since this hotel is a very short walk (like 100 yards) from the Louvre, you can have breakfast or lunch at the Cafe Marly which you can get to by going into the Louvre at the Porte Richelieu and turning into the long corridor overlooking the Cour Napoleon and the Pei Pyramide. It's not cheap, but it's cheaper than the hotel breakfast and you can't beat the view!

Fantastic location

The staff at the hotel were extremely helpful and friendly. You could not ask for a better location although it is somewhat noisy. The hotel is dated but charming. The Italian restaurant across the street is fantastic! I am very happy we did'nt listen to the reviews on this hotel. I would definately recommend it.

OK, for an OK price

Bathroom was small; rugs and drapes were a bit worn, but a very good location and the Sunday rate is quite fair.

The Invasion of Normandy (Hotel)

This hotel had an amazing location, about two blocks from the Louvre. The lobby was nice enough, as was the front desk help. The concierge was particularly helpful and patience with my terrible French. The room itself was on the small side, but the windows opened to a nice side street and there was a balcony of sorts from which I could view the Palais Royale. No cups in the bathroom; no bedframe (mattresses on the floor); the bed had no bedspread. Breakfast buffet (12 euros) was decent, but not great. I paid $150USD a night, and still think it was worth it even though the hotel has seen some better days.

Vin & Maree Restaurant was great. Don't let the decor put you off....lighting is too bright, looks like a former chinese restaurant inside. The food was amazing...I had the escargot and the scallops, each of which was great. And the side of mashed potatoes was simple but out of this world (butter and cream can work wonders).

Perfect for our needs

The hotel's location was a definite plus for us, as it was on a convenient metro line with buses nearby. The staff was helpful and friendly. The rooms were a good size and clean. While it's true that the hotel is aging, that was not as important as the other features that made our stay a positive one.

Good Deal but a little musty in the room

Great location, very small room, not a place to stay in the summer as there is no airconditioning. The carpet, walls, towels etc are very worn down. Nice staff and front desk.

Perfect Location

The location does not get any better, absolutely perfect. It is immediately adjacent to the Louvre and Tuilleries, two metro stations (Louvre-Carousel and Pyramides), and a short walk to the Opera and Galeries Lafayette. The staff were very nice and generous, and spoke perfect English with no hesitation. The consierge was also very helpful, knowledgeable and always available, even very late at night. I just had one of the best weekends of my life, and although the hotel was more of a background player, the convenience of it all was priceless and certainly added to the experience. And yet, I got a smokin' deal on the room! Please note: if you are the typical American who hates anything that is not a carbon-copy of the Wichita Courtyard Marriott you last stayed at, save your breath and go elsewhere. But if you appreciate belle-epoque design and find dated French decor as charming as I do, you will not be disappointed.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Take the Roissy bus from the airport into the city. It is cheaper than taxi or metro. (9 euros pp one way). The bus picks up in front of all CDG terminals. Tickets available at the bus stop or even on the bus.
