Hotel Paris Louis Blanc3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
I recently stayed at the Paris Louis Blanc with my son and 4 of his friends. This is a budget friendly hotel. The staff was helpful and friendly. The rooms were small but very well kept, they served the intended purpose as we were out and about all day and only were at the rooms for sleep. The hotel puts out a wonderful varied breakfast...even baking fresh goods each morning. It is located in a great spot to take the Metro with a smaller station right across the street and a larger multi line stop just a few short blocks away. The hotel does not have a restaurant or bar within. However there is plenty to eat in the neighborhood, a couple French restaurants, several Turkish and even an Italian restaurant that serves good pizza and pasta if you need a late night meal after a long day of sightseeing. A bar located across the street if you are looking for a cocktail was lively and fun. A market is located around the corner with anything you may need. Overall a good stay, I would do it again if my intentions were the same....this was a good choice comfortable and located perfectly for us.
This hotel is nicely situated with the Louise Blanc metro station just across the street. It is also walking distance to the train station, Gare du Nord. It is clean, has everything you need, and includes breakfast. The staff is also friendly. I would stay in this hotel again.
Staff pleasant, approachable and helpful. That should be taken as read of course. Room 207 - a double, small and with an awkwardly shaped bathroom. A bit of mildew - a common problem with enclosed damp places. Awkward for staff to manage. Ordinary but OK for the money. After all, most of the time you are here, your eyes are likely to be closed.
Good value hotel, very clean and good dining area for breakfast. Our room was small but adequate and overlooked the main road towards the metro. There was traffic noise with the window-door to the street open but this seemed double glazed and with the door shut and curtains drawn it cut out the noise almost completely. Good breakfast selection, cold buffet but also a toaster and eggs to boil (self service) which was a nice touch. In good weather you could sit outside on the terrace but a bit too cold for this in November when we stayed. Reception very friendly and spoke English. Well placed for Gare du Nord, walk from station along Rue Lafayette for about 10 minutes until you get to Louis Blanc Station.
Check in was very smooth and the lady on reception was very polite and friendly. The breakfast room is very nice. SO MANY VEG OPTIONS! Spacious and bright, with a nice little outside terrace. The breakfast itself is continental. Croissants, pain au chocolate, cheese, ham etc. Enough to get you started for the day. Breakfast staff were very friendly. There is a metro station located opposite the hotel. Line 7. This will get you directly into the centre in about 15 mins. All very easy.
Stayed at the Louis Blanc Hotel for 3 nights, the hotel itself is in a great location and a short metro ride to most places of interest! The Louis Blanc area itself doesn't have much to offer sadly apart from a couple of shops/restaurants. The staff are friendly but you hardly see them and on a number of occasions the reception desk was empty... The housekeeping staff are wonderful and very helpful! My only complaint would be that I had to pay over 55 Euros to keep the room on for an extra couple of hours as my flight wasn't until the late evening..... After I had paid this, I was later told that it was so expensive due to the fact I'd been charged for a whole extra night as housekeeping wouldn't have the chance to clean it before the next day. Which I find ridiculous......
I booked this through Groupon for two nights, I had a few issues prior to arriving in Paris with Groupon to the fact that the hotel didn't know of any reservation made by myself. Even though I followed what the instructions were from Groupon. Anyhow, I was getting concerned so I contacted the hotel directly to confirm the bookings and spoke to one person who didn't know anything of the booking and then made sure all went through online (which I had confirmation) so rung again then they finally confirmed we had a reservation. We finally arrived at the hotel, great location right opposite the metro (Main Line) and lots of little shops, restaurants as well. Went to check in and what a surprise they didn't have us on the system BUT I printed off all confirmation (lucky I did) and they sorted it all out for us. Very helpful and friendly service. The hotel was clean and tidy, the room was basic but was a wonderful position, we had a lovely balcony over looking the streets which had a table and chairs outside too. The bed was comfortable and no issues with house keeping. I am a Ceoliac (Gluten Free) and they also accommodated for that once I had notified reception the previous evening before breakfast. A wonderful breakfast included (even with me being awkward) and very pleasant to sit outside on the decking. Overall, a great place to stay for a weekend away, couldn't recommend it more as it was a great deal we had through groupon, although no fault of the hotel problems with booking/reservation so I would strongly advise any deals with them make sure you print off all documentation and confirmation emails.
Nice clean hotel. Air conditioning switch from cold to hot because is winter.....the room was so hot !!!! Nice kettle with tea/coffee, milk plastic cup present . No drinking water! Nice continental breakfast. £13.00 Euros for booking a taxi . Really ???? £60 Euros for £45 minuets driving, think about before call a taxi !!!
By goodness this place was horrible. The carpet was dirty, the mattresses were old looking and sunken, the bathroom was dirty. The toilet had hair all over this “room ready”. I started itching all over and loosing my voice because of an odor. The neighborhood is suspect. The rooms did not have a safe, nor a place to store your cloths. Almost ruined my first trip to Paris. Need more than changing the carpets for upgrading.
Owing to the convenient location near Gare du Nord and decent price I weighed up the positive reviews against the ones that mentioned smelly rooms. I should not have bothered. Would not stay there again. Mentioned the smell to desk staff who professed ignorance that this had ever arisen (despite TA reviews mentioning this). Breakfast grim too, Many good places across road and around corner,
