Hôtel Clarisse

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Friendly staff, clean, a pretty basic but OK continental breakfast. The room was small but the bathroom was clean and the shower hot. The decor was slightly tatty but all in all, it was adequate and even though my room was on the side of the main road I wasn't disturbed by traffic noise. Comfortable night's sleep and most importantly good value.

Came here for a week away with my boyfriend for my birthday and the hotel itself is quite nice. Considering it is only a two star hotel it is lovely. The rooms are clean, bathroom is clean and the location of the hotel is very convenient as it is right next to a shop and a metro station. This can be a problem when you’re trying to get an early night and all you can hear is the metro. The room we stayed in, to me, was quite cold and they could do with new windows as you can hear everything, all of the traffic and occasional arguments outside our window. But overall, it has been an enjoyable visit, would recommend for short breaks but perhaps find somewhere nicer for longer breaks away.

A good hotel with Parking..rooms are a bit small but that doesn't really matter..newly renovated rooms with all new items inside including the towels..nice bathroom, they have secured underground parking but will charge 18 €/24 hours..

We visited Hotel Clarisse last weekend (26th to 28th August). The hotel is on the outskirts of Paris but still within the Metro area. The tram stop is almost outside the front door which is good for getting around with minimum walking and this links well with the full Metro / Rer system. As far as the hotel is concerned, we had a downstairs room for three of us. The room wasn't very big but adequate. The shower / toilet were lovely. The staff were all very helpful and reception is open 24 hours. There were only two things that spoiled it: First was the heat. The temperature was in the high 30s and the room was unbearable at night. This hotel really needs air conditioning installing! The second thing was a gang of locals outside with music banging away from a car till 4 am. This wouldn't really be a problem with rooms on the front of the bulding but ours was on the side. Overall for the price we paid it wasn't bad

If you are an insomniac, who likes to live on the edge and fancy a ghetto tour, getting high and enjoy gang warfare to a soundtrack of drum and bass, this is your place! This was booked as an anniversary treat, it turned into a horror story The area is a ghetto for Nigerian and African people, they shout at each other through out the day and night. They must be very hard of hearing as they could only listen to drum and bass at top volume, so much so the windows of our room vibrated! I'm 6ft 3 with a rugby build, I felt intimidated in the area, hoards of young men crowd the streets yelling at each other. Not a single day went by without us being offered drugs from random strangers. There is bugger all to do in the area, the nearest bar is two blocks away and the nearest cafe is a kebab place. The local tram stop is opposite and goes frequently, however it seems to house the local homeless that just ride up and down, as well as the women who have no control over their children. Not once did we not use the tram without a urine smelling homeless person and a couple of screaming children. The police are armed and seem to patrol the place in packs. Anyway, back to the hotel, it's dated but clean(ish), they forgot to service the room a couple of times. The hotel apologised and gave us replacement towels. Towards the end of our stay there, when things had got really bad (no air conditioning, open windows and screaming youth along with drum and bass playing until 4am!) the staff were absent a lot of the time. We left early, it was meant to be a special romantic holiday and if we'd have stayed longer it would have ended in divorce! We waited around receiption to check out but nobody showed up, so we just left our key behind the receiption and left. We booked into the gorgeous Novotel just near the Effiel Tower, the receptionist felt sorry for us, and had a look of abject terror when we said where we stayed, if she'd had been wearing pearls, she would have clutched them! We got upgraded to an executive suite with a free mini bar and a bottle of wine to enjoy on the roof top bar on our first evening.

The hotel is pretty basic and is true to its 2 star rating. The rooms are very small and cramped, the beds are comfortable but comes with no accessories. No tea facilities, no spare sheets and you are not allowed to eat in your room. The bathrooms are very small and cramped which makes it a pain to get dressed in there. The hotel does provide shower gel which is handy if you have forgot your own. The area which the hotel is located is okay. There is a tram located just outside, approximately a 15 second walk. This makes accessing the city very easy. Although the tram is very loud so you cannot sleep with your window open, there always appears to be a group/gang of people outside smoking, drinking and listening to loud music until early hours of the morning which can make you feel a little on edge. The staff within the hotel are very friendly, although some do not know much English. During our stay the cleaner walked in without knocking and then started talking French when she closed the door. Rather confusing really. The hotel provides a large range of leaflets which can be helpful if you find yourself having a spare day in the city and need something to do. The hotel has no air conditioning and trying to sleep when it's hot outside is very hard. The hotel does not provide any sort of fan in order to help you. The hotel does provide breakfast, this costs €10. I cannot review this as I haven't had this during my stay as there is a mc Donald's 10 minute walk away. We also had a rather weird experience where somebody tried to enter our room at 3am, luckily the door was locked and they didn't manage to enter. Although we still do not know who this was or why they was trying to come into our room. The rooms are advertised as soundproof. This is completely untrue. You can hear everything down to the person in the next room sneezing and having a shower. If your looking for a hotel which you can have a drink in the evening to wind down then this isn't the hotel for you, their 'bar' is a folded up cupboard and only offer a very small amount of drinks. The hotel does offer a lift which can be handy if you need assistance, although the lift is very small. I do not believe you would be able to fit a wheelchair in the lift. The lift is advertised as being able to hold 3 people but this is at a huge push. Furthermore the lift does not actually stop at the floor you require, for instance. My room was on floor 2 and the lift stopped at 1.5 which meant you had to walk up a flight of stairs. Although in saying this the hotel is okay for a those that do not require any assistance, don't mind being cramped and are able to sleep through a lot of noise.

We needed a last minute place to stay in Paris and had the car, luckily we managed to book in here. My boyfriend wasn't too happy as he prefers the finer things in life. The car park was secure and right next door. The staff at Clarisse were very friendly. The corridors are little small if you have large bags (which we did) however we were pleasantly surprised as to how clean the rooms were. Sheets smelt lovely. A cute little place in Paris, very clean and comfortable and great if you have a car and are stopping through.

If you want a reasonably priced hotel during your stay in Paris then you won't go wrong here. The room was a bit on the small side but it is a small hotel. There wasn't a speck of dirt to be found, and the bed was very comfortable. I had read reviews about noisy neighbours, but we didn't encounter this, and our room was at the front. The room was very small but we were hardly ever there except to sleep so this wasn't a big issue, however, larger bath towels would have been nice. There aren't coffee making facilities in the rooms although you can purchase coffees from reception for a couple of euros. The nearest metro is a ten minute walk, slightly too far if you've been walking all day long but there is a tramway right to the door. Would stay here again though if we come back to Paris.

-Staff are very helpful and it is a cute little hotel. -8 stops average from Paris Center using the Metro and Metro is just 5 minutes walk from the hotel. -Neighborhood is safe and enjoyed the fresh breads, pastries from nearby bread shop. -Hotel carpet though needs more thorough cleaning prior to check in. -Wifi is on and off

it's rare to find in Paris a welcoming, professional and friendly staff but at this hotel, the staff make you comfortable and actually seems to want to care of you.I recommend it for all those who don't want to or cannot remain in the large luxury hotels, but who still wish to have a nice service
