We have stayed here before and this time so disappointing. Had a terrible room facing the inner void and no sunshine or skyline in view We were able to hear the water pipes all night long . We booked a double bed and got twin beds and we requested a room facing outside onto the street the next morning and we were told it was fully booked ! Hmm by invisible people ! We were advised it was under new management and the ladies on reception were lovely however the male manager was rude and delighted in making fun of tourists . I think in the wrong job . What a shame as it is in a wonderful area and it is so reasonably priced for Paris. . The street facing rooms are okay but shabby. Will we go back .......not sure ....... probably one more chance.
The front desk man ( around 50yrs old) is really unfriendly and bad attitude. be aware!!! He was trying to make us pay for second time, which is what they were trying to every guests, i realised that after i read reviews everywhere.. this is not acceptable. fantastic location with easy access to everywhere, but thats the only advantage of it. toliet with a very bad conditions, i am sure there is not even heating during winter. please spend your money somewhere else, you get what you paid for, seriously.!!!!
5 months ago they charged me in cash, and month later charged my credit card for the same amount. Ignored all my emails and call requests for refund. Waist of time and money. Scammers. Read Googlemaps reviews before booking.
Fabio really looked after us during our stay in Paris early august.. he really made us feel us home, and shared the in & outs of Paris - making our experience so much more memorable and enjoyable. thanks a million for everything Fabio.. best wishes from south africa and brussels :) the accommodation was just what we needed at a very reasonable price, and breakfast was definitely one of the main highlights at Hotel Picard!
I would like to mention some points about this hotel ... The location : is perfect near to the Metro Station Comfortable and clean The staff very friendly and helpful especially Mrs.FABIO i would thanks him so much ..he help us a lot and direct us to the places and give us lots of information.. Its value and cheap price Wi fi is very good
The summary is that this hotel is to be avoided. The staff are unfriendly, the rooms are terrible and it is expensive for the facilities offered. My bathroom was mouldy and the bedroom was little better.
Nothing really to rave about here, but you can't really complain for the price! Twin rooms had reasonable space and a basin in the room. Shared bathroom left a little to be desired, two toilets and two showers between three floors. Like I said, a good price for somewhere to sleep but don't expect much more.
The entry hall is well decorated, staircase and rooms are of much simpler standards. Nice receptonist speaks all European languages :-) Totally quiet area at night, but close to many cafés, restaurants, shops and 10 mins walk to Marais. Fare is very good considering the generally nice hotel. Downside: The only shower for rooms with shared shower has neither a hook or chair for clothes and no shelf for soap and shampoo bottle. That's miserable and could be improved with so little effort. Please!
Hotel Picard is in a central location close to the metro and main streets. Also in a quiet area despite the fact it is in a major city. Fabio is very good at his job however I think he is let down by the establishment itself which is rather disappointing. The lift is tiny and slow, the hall ways are narrow and very awkward to move around. I was on the 4th floor. The door was incredibly difficult to unlock and lock. The safe didn't work. The Windows however did open up to allow in some nice summer air. The bed had mites and the shower was very impractical. The door wouldn't close in the shower and the lights would turn off and you would have to get out of the shower and turn on again. The toilet also had no paper in it on Saturday night. I loved the location however the other aspects of the hotel would mean that I wouldn't consider returning to it not recommending it. One mark for location, 2 marks for Fabio and the fact they allowed me to keep my luggage their after checkout
Building is quite old fashioned, classical french building with very narrow entrance to the room and historical elevator. Location is perfect, very close the metro stations. Best detail about the hotel is the "Fabio" who likes to help visitors about all the issues. It was great 3 days at the hotel.
