Best Western Premier Le Swann4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Themed around French writers, this hotel is very well designed, with careful thought given to the use of every cm. The staff are attentive and the facilities are spotless. Be wary of using the internet however as it is not secure. Also the fire exit staircase , has piles of paper stored at ground level. This should not happen!
The Best Western Premier Le Swann hotel is updated, clean, and convenient to the Metro. The hotel has a restaurant & bar as well as room service. Plus, there are several cafés, pubs, and a supermarket nearby. The neighborhood felt safe as we walked throughout it during the day and evening. We booked the superior room for a 4 night stay and had plenty of room. The room was large by European standards. The bathroom was modern. The in-room safe is a good amenity. The hotel staff was very helpful. They patiently worked to overcome language barriers to help us with our sight seeing plans and to teach us how to use the Metro to get around Paris. They even let us check in early on the day of arrival when we stopped in to store our luggage. The hotel is located in the top of the 8th arrondissement near the 17th. It's close enough to walk to some tourist attractions, but far enough away to be out of the masses of tourists.
A very nice clean and quiet hotel. A walk down Rue de Rome takes you pretty quickly to Place Madeleine. Yes, the rooms are tiny but Paris is that way. Good design makes up for the size. And good value for money.
We travelled with 2 mid size luggages, and there was barely any floor space to walk. The bed is comfy but I felt that it's smaller than a Queen size bed. Nuxe toiletries were given, Nespresso capsules, good tea selection. Room is clean. Getting to the hotel by train from airport is also quite convenient with escalators equipped stations. Accessible to major attractions in Paris as well
Stayed in this hotel with my wife and son during our short European tour last month. Rooms are big and very clean including the toilet. Staff was also very helpful and friendly. There is also free wifi internet, complimentary coffee and tea in the mini bar. Location is good near convenience stores, restaurants, bus stop and the Europe subway station (although I would warn everyone that there are a LOT of pickpockets roaming around these stations and they are very easy to identify and I am very surprised why the police and the government agencies seems to be doing nothing about this problem). Better take the bus instead or maybe a taxi. To the management and staff of Best Western Premier Le Swann, thank you for being part of a short but great vacation with my family there in Europe. I will recommend your hotel to our friends planning to drop by your very beautiful city. More power and Mabuhay from the Philippines Neco D.
Hotel is within 30 minutes walk of most of the main attractions and being near st Lazare station there are lots of bars and restaurants nearby, hotel staff were friendly and helpful and the room was well nicely decorated modern and clean as well as well equipped and the beds very comfortable. However I booked through a booking website and didn't notice that the room was 13m square, quite frankly if I had I wouldn't have booked this hotel, this room is the smallest hotel room I have ever stayed in there was literally about a foot at the end of the bed and my husband and I were dancing round each other to get dressed as there was no room. The twin beds were pushed together. The hotel photos have certainly been taken from a very interesting angle, there was a desk and chairs In our superior room (which is a standard room) but not enough space to actually sit at the desk. My husband says there wasn't enough room to swing a mouse let alone a cat! In addition the bathroom was separated from the bedroom by a glass sliding door which had gaps at the top so absolutely no privacy, you need to be sharing with someone you don't mind being intimate with. I would agree that the size of the rooms really don't put this hotel in a 4 star category. Worth noting Paris is very expensive so the buffet breakfast which we didn't have is worth considering as a cup of coffee is 6 euros in most cafes.
Very good hotel, breakfast exellent for Paris. Very good bed, only the room is very small. But staff friendly. Location very convenient. Its a hotel where Marcel Proust has lived so there is a lot to remind us of him.
The room was clean, beautifully decorated, and extremely comfortable. The staff was helpful and patient with our litany of questions about the metro. (We were delighted to find that this hotel was perfectly located with easy access to no less than 3 different metro lines.) The breakfast was a delicious buffet of hot and cold items. Recommend booking through the hotel website.
Avoid this hotel if you can. Not worth 4 stars. Room is sooooo tiny!! Staff members are indifferent and aloof. They don't have any customers service at all. This is a 2 stars hotel. Please do not over pay. Only worth €98 at best. I strongly advise travelers to avoid this hotel. Nothing to like here. Plenty nearby hotels and same price. They buy their ratings.
Well located hotel, being part of the Best Western group, you know it won't be a let down. Clean and tidy, lovely decor. Our bedroom wasn't massive but the wet room section was as big as my garage!! Great interaction with the hotel staff. Breakfast is well worth having. Hotel is strongly associated with Marcel Proust, with lots of personal correspondence on display. For 'Prousties' if there is such a thing, Le Swann would prove priceless
