Hotel le Twelve3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
We chose Le Twelve based on reviews and for locality - we were driving to Paris and wanted a hotel that offered reasonably priced parking. The location is good, just around the corner from the metro and close to good cafes (take breakfast in any one of them not at the hotel) and bars serving decent food and drinks. Saskia, the day time receptionist, is friendly, the guy who takes over once Saskia goes home didn't really have a clue and charged us again for the room we had already paid for plus misadvised us about the arrangements for parking which led to further trips to the car park (1 km away - not really a problem but an unnecessary waste of time on a weekend trip). The room; well, as is often the case, money and effort has been spent on the front of house, step beyond into the rooms and it's a different story. The room, room 7, is very small - no surprise there, after all this is Paris, but you couldn't access the tiny wardrobe without moving the bed and other furniture; the person sleeping on the right hand side of the bed needed to climb over the person on the left to get up. Notwithstanding, these things you half expect in a popular city but the cigarette burn on the purple nylon bed cover? No thanks. The brown hairy unsavoury blankets when every half decent hotel in the world uses duvets? No thanks. The plastic bag covering the smoke detector? No thanks. And the generally lack of all but the most superficial kind of cleaning? No thanks. Added to this the fact that we could literally hear every conversation, breath, snore and personal liaison going on in multiple rooms? No thanks. The refund took two weeks to come due to the owner being on holiday, staying somewhere a little more comfortable and value for money than Le Twelve I suspect. There has to be better places at less than €100 a night.
Hotel Le twelve is good for a short stay. We stayed for a week and found it ok. It’s clean but lacking elevators, so if you’re physically challenged this is not the place. We had to haul our luggage up two flights as there is no one to do this for you. If you want breakfast it will cost you €9 for all u can eat which is mostly pastries yogurt and a fruit and coffee. The bathroom stalls are quite small I could not turn around in the shower without bumping my arm. If you are in Paris on a budget I would recommend it.
We booked this hotel on Hotwire very last minute. It looks very cute but that's about it. Bed wasn't confortable at all, bathroom renovated and clean, very thin walls... Best part of this place is the near location from the Gare de Lyon. 2 metro stations, took us 10 mins to get there. Yellow line brings you also from Paris. On a budget, it's a place to stay for a night. Has a full kitchen available, and a fridge if needed staff will accommodate. Reception is closed between midnight and 07:00.
You get a room and a bathroom, both ok but nothing special. Every day cleaning. The hotel is around the corner of metro 1, so it's easy getting into city center. Your car can be parked about 5 minutes walk away. The negative side is that there is very much noise in the hotel, the walls are thin, you hear everything from every one..... we woke up every night several times.... but hey, it was cheap (60 a night)
Nice small hotel , very clean , friendly service, breakfast was not so good but there is a bakery right across the road and a lovely brassier a few doors up on the corner. The hotel is a little further out than we expected, we underestimated the size of Paris on the map, but it is next to a metro line and it was not expensive, so if you are on a budget I would recommend it ,but if you can spend a wee bit more you could find somewhere a bit more central.
Friendly staff, helpful and accomodating. The location is quite good, aprox 200m from metro line 1 station Porte de Vincennes. On the downside is that it is located on the same street as a hospital. I'll get to why that is negative below. The hotel is missing a few facilities. It is several levels, but they do not have an elevator. Be advised if you have a lot of luggage. Also, there is no airconditioning, which means you have to choose between stale, hot air in the morning after a sweaty night of poor sleep, or a night of open windows and decent air, but periodical sirens from the ambulances to the nearby hospital and other traffic. This might be less of a problem if you have a room not facing the street. The breakfast is rather simple, but it was nice that they re-stocked their pastries from the bakery across the street. The rooms looked clean and well kept, and there is also a small, cozy backyard available for the residents. All in all, 3 stars is a stretch in my opinion, i'd probably give it 2,5 stars.
Came to Paris for a show, and this was great value for money. You get what you pay for, the room was small, but can't complain it was just what we needed. Comfortable stay and its very secure. It is quite far away from things so Bus/Taxi is needed if you want to see the city. Can't fault the staff, they where great.
I have spent two nights here. Small friendly hotel. The rooms I stayed in were small but very clean. There are plenty of restaurants and bars to choose from. As is always the case in Paris. I would stay there again if I was in the same area of the city.
Staff were friendly and helpful (two ladies and one gentelman) & metro stations are near. BUT small room, no elevator in the hotel & you have to carry your luggage using stairs, the room was dusty, No air conditioner in room! Very noisy neighborhood, no net on windows to prevent bugs coming inside!
Reasonable price for a 3 star hotel on the outskirts of France. Our 4 day stay was trouble free and all we needed (except kettle) was on hand in the room. Very close to Metro line 1 into central Paris and there are plenty of places within walking distance to get a reasonably priced meal (well for Paris just after the Brexit damage to the £ anyway😩)
