Grand Hotel Dechampaigne

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The Hotel is in a great location for getting about. Short walk to the Louvre and the metro Chatelet is only 6 stops direct from Gare du Nord. Front of house staff very friendly and helpful. We stayed here 11 years ago and knew of the great location. The foyer area is the same untouched in all those years but kitch in a historic way. The rooms are dreadful and have had no investment in the past 11 years. They are so outdated and rundown. The bathrooms are a joke something out of 50"s Paris. We live in the 21st Century now and at these prices there in no excuse but underinvestment for the state of this Hotel. Very very uncomfortable stay. Bitten to death my mosquitos as AC did not work and had to have windows open. Street noise starts around 5.30 with bin emptying....... could go on but I think this gets the message over.

We went on a multi-generation family trip to France this month. We stayed here for 4 days. It is tucked away on a quiet little street but really close to Le Marias, the Louvre, Notre Dame and the river. The reception staff were very helpful. We arrived early but were able to check into one of our rooms. The rooms are small like most in Paris but very charming with stone and wood. There were a clean and comfy double bed, closet and some nice antiquey furniture. Our bathroom was quite big with bath with shower attachment. My Dad's room had a stand up shower. Both worked well and were well stocked. My Dad had the breakfast one morning and said it was very good - standard fare: breads, jams, cheeses, egg, coffe, juice etc. We walked to nearly everything we wanted to see and do due to the excellent location of the hotel. If we needed a taxi the reception would call one for us. It was quite rainy and they had many umbrellas available to use. There was an excellent little supermarket round the corner so we bought a bottle of wine for our room. We slept well, went off each day to sight-see and returned later to a fresh clean room. There was some morning noise outside in the street (garbage removal) but the rest of the time it was very quiet. We happily recommend this hotel as a great base for a trip to Paris. Well-located, friendly and quiet. Very lovely!!

Every other stay on our European visit was Hilton as we could use points but my wife wanted the quaint, traditional French hotel. I was fine with that but I also wanted a location that was central to all we wanted to see. We found both at Grand Hotel Dechampaigne. Every thing about it on a side street in the heart of Paris with an elevator that could handle one with luggage, true BEDrooms, room just for the bed and lots of character. However its best feature was being located in the heart of Paris a block away from the Metro, corner grocery and the Seine. It is perfectly located between the Isle de Cite and the Louvre. There may be better places to stay in Paris but if you choose this Hotel you will be very happy. I fully recommend.

We absolutely loved our 6 night stay at this hotel. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. The room was lovely. It was styled exactly like the pictures and it matched its 16th century build. We had a twin room on the 4th floor. The bathroom was excellent and everything was so incredibly clean. It is lovely and quiet street and the location of the hotel is brilliant! Would definitely stay there again!

The room was small, the bathroom was as large as the room! As it looked out on the street it was also noisy early in the morning. It is however a great location with nice staff. Break fast was optional and looked generous but there was several cafes and restaurants in the immediate vicinity so I tried a few. There is a shuttle to the airport that you pay for. If you have very little baggage you can take the subway from the airport.

What a wonderful hotel. The staff is multi-lingual very pleasant and helpful. Rooms are modern without taking away the classic 530 year old beams. Oh, and then you can have your provided coffee (or tea) on your own geraniums surrounded balcony. This hotel is a leisurely 5 minute walk from the Seine River near Notre Dame Cathedral or the Chatelet Metro.

The hotel is located in a very convenient place, very close to the Chatelet tube. Unfortunately the rooms and the atmosphere are very disappointing. My room was tiny, with old and stained carpet, old blankets and couldn't open the window, as the noise coming from the AC engine was loud. For 200 euros a night I would expect something different.

Fantastic location close to chatelet metro and the Seine but in a quiet spot. Easy access to Charles de Gaulle airport by blue line to Chatelet Les Halles and also great access to the Stadium (2 or 3 stops on the train) where we went to see a concert. We really loved the hotel! Beautifully maintained traditionally decorated with great attention to detail. Our balcony room was perfect. Not big but had everything we needed included air con which was great. Really quiet and lovely balcony with lots of flower pots, table and chairs. Great to sit out on. Nice bathroom. Very laid back relaxed feel to the hotel. Staff very friendly on reception and those serving breakfast. Nice touch to offer all guests a complimentary glass of champagne to celebrate their 30th year. Highly recommend and we would definitely return.

Very friendly place with great customer service. Centrally located, very close to Metro and RER to airport. Staff very friendly and attentice, and put a lot of effort into customer relations. Small room but comfortable. I asked for a quiet room and got it (unlike at many places where they nod and still give you a noisy one). I would happily stay there again.

The hotel is in a wonderful location in Paris but I left it with bug bites over my back and arms, and was disappointed in the hotel's response. I would recommend a good inspection before you get into bed!
