Relais Hotel Du Vieux Paris4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Relais Hotel du Vieux Paris is a true find. Cosy, clean and beautifully appointed rooms within a short walk from St Michel metro and the Seine. Henri and all the hotel staff go the extra mile for their guests and friendliness is their watchword. The area has lots of bars and restaurants and Notre Dame is a short walk away. The perfect base for exploring Paris and the hotel's history (once home of the Beat Poets William Burroughs and Allen Ginsberg) adds to its charm. Small, quaint and quiet the welcome is real: you arrive as a guest but you leave as a friend.
Beautiful rooms and pleasant staff that are thoughtful and attentive. Having arrived early in the morning on an overnight flight from Canada, Henri was able to check us in early and gave us a beautiful deluxe room. On a our last day, Henri booked us a taxi to the railway station, calling three taxi companies before he was satisfied that we were getting the best rate. It’s thoughtful gestures like this that mean a lot when you are travelling.
I stayed for 4 nights at this excellent hotel. As a base to explore Paris for the first time I found it perfect. On a quiet street next to St. Michel, the hustle of the Latin quarter is seconds away. Only minutes walk from Notre Dame or Luxembourg Gardens and with the Seine running by its doorstep the location certainly cannot be questioned. The Hotel is perfectly maintained and while the (lovely quiet) rooms might be small in comparison to some others, the ambience more than makes up for that. The staff in the hotel were all extremely helpful, polite and friendly in a genuine way and each request I made was met with aplomb. I will most definitely be returning to this hotel on my next visit to Paris.
The hotel is quaint and nice. The location could not be better. Get up in the morning and walk around Notre Dame. The staff of the hotel were extremely helpful and we enjoyed them. They helped us navigate through France showing us were to go, where to eat and what were the best places of the city to visit.
We stayed here for our first two nights in Paris. They let us check in early to get some rest which was much needed. This hotel is hidden on a lovely side street which is filled with Parisian charm. The decor is so quant and it was lovely to stay in a building build in the 1400s.
In a small, quiet street just few feet from the Seine across the street from Notre Dame cathedral, this small hotel is a real find! My husband and I have stayed there several times, and have tried each category of rooms. Most recently we spent a blissful week before Christmas, treating ourselves to a charming, romantic suite. It was very cold outside and I was a bit sick so we spent more time indoor - reading, sleeping, watching tv - than we would have otherwise. The bed, linens, furnitures, toiletries are top of the line. The service is outstanding, and the hotel manager, Monsieur Henri goes out of his way to be helpful and hospitable. It's hard to beat the location, from there you can easily get to most of the sights and there are many fabulous restaurants at walking distances. We also love the historical connection that this hotel has with American art and culture. We very much look forward to our next stay!
Great hotel, in an excellent location - Right in the Latin Quarter, but on a quiet street so you get all of the benefits of a great location, without all of the noise. Very nice hotel staff, who all spoke English well and were very helpful throughout our stay. Rooms are small, but very clean with a lot of character. Highly recommended!
I had a wonderful time the first days of november at this special hotel I have been so welcomed and they treat me so well since the very begining It was the third time i was there and now it seems that i have a home to stay ! Merci Henri
Really friendly staff - we booked this for our parents (in their 70's) travelling to paris for a 4-day break. The staff, especially Henri, was really helpful and looked after them during their stay - we felt they were in good hands. They helped with transfers back to the airport after a no-show by the operator we had booked to collect them on arrival! The breakfast was apparently brilliant, very good choice and tasty. Perfectly located for the area they wanted to go. Overall a big thanks to this hotel for making their trip so fantastic.
Well..we’d been traveling Europe and ended our stay in Paris. Not my first time in Paris nor is it my first stay in a small hotel. But this one took the cake. First we booked through hotels.com so any issues you have, unless you pay more, your screwed. We got there and the hotel manager was nice. Overly nice. He warned us in the nicest way how small the room was. Fine, we’ll see. We get to the room, which you can all see in the reviews, old original beams, small small. But it wasn’t just small. It was stuffy, the beds were uncomfortable (two box mattresses pushed together) the a/c was not working and if we wanted to open the window, about 5 other rooms could see in. There was no privacy if we wanted air. The good part was that it was walking distance to great bars and restaurants. But a good nights sleep is more important and we didn’t get one. So the next morning we kindly let the manager know we would not be staying. We told them why and they didn’t understand. The owner jumped in and tried to calm the manager down as he was almost offended we wanted to turn the a/on. They suggested we wear a jacket. There was a misunderstanding as we thought because they said ok, we would be refunded the remaining 3 nights (900.00). In the end, they said hotels.com would not let them give us any money back. Then hotels.com said the hotel would not give us any money back. They told us we’d need to get a letter from a nearby hotel with proof that our stay was bad. WTF? While I understand that I need to pay more in insurance to have any money refunded, this was a very unhappy customer experience that will deter me from ever using hotels.com again. We had to wait to see if we would “win our case” and we didn’t. Not sure why. No information was provided. Perhaps if we didn’t use hotels.com to boom this hotel, they might be more accommodating but I doubt it. All-in-all it was a very bad experience with the hotel and hotels.com. We lose. We moved to a different hotel and paid more for incredible rooms, bed, a/c and great customer service. Review to come.
