We stayed at the hotel for 4 nights: We arrived around 11pm w/ several luggages + 2 small children, and the receptionist didn't even stood up the whole time we checked in nor helped us with with our 7 bags (as if we bother him!!) I guess a little courtesy to stand up and give us a hand with the bags as I was holding my 2 kids (ages 4 &2). But I shrugged it off, I was too tired. Day 2, I was giving my kids a bath when the lights suddenly turned off!!! Everything! my youngest was so afraid and kept on crying. It was stressful, so we rushed to go out quickly even if I haven't taken a shower. Informed the lobby and said they will fix it. Day 3, problem with the hot water as while we shower, hot water turns off then turns on. It's not consistent. It's either you'll burn or you'll feel cold. I informed the lobby about it and said they'll do something about it. Last day, it was still the same. I didn't bother to tell them as we're checking out soon. The staff wrongly rang our room at 9am, when I opened the door, she made a mistake. The breakfast was supposed to be at the room beside us! I mean how could they make a mistake, there were only 2 clients on our floor?!? Was it very hard? The day we were leaving, I called the lobby if someone could help us bring our luggages downstairs (7 bags) and he responded "Madame, there's an elevator." Hello? How will I bring down 7 luggages with 2 small children?? Of course they know it's the only room with children. I speak french fluently, we are in paris every year and it always brings me good & nice connections with the french people, but not at this hotel. antipathique! Not to mention, there were works at the hotel that we weren't informed of, all the noise of hammering & drilling the ceiling/walls were there in the morning. The receptionist also asked us if we'll book our taxis for the airport. and we said yes. They booked us a van and a taxi as my (family in law would bring us to the airport). They said that they can book a taxi for us cheaper than the rates of other taxis so we said ok. 3 hours before our pick up, we checked on the G7 app that it was way cheaper than the hotel (Now i know they get commissions!) We got a van and saved 70€!!! Thank you for making our last days of vacation memorable. Will not stay here anymore, very disappointing.
We stayed here for only one short night, but the experience was excellent, nonetheless! Prior to our arrival, we communicated with Alain with questions that were answered thoroughly & promptly. When we arrived at the hotel, Henri greeted us and was extremely helpful in guiding us towards things to do/see while in Paris. We enjoyed talking to him, as he is very knowledgeable about the city and it's history. We were able to get tickets for a Seine River cruise directly from the hotel, as well as train tickets for our departure back to the airport. The room itself was beautiful - clean and well-furnished, with all the amenities we needed. Thank you for a great stay, and we hope to be back soon!
Firstly staff especially manager Henri was very helpful, friendly. Not easy to see someone who does his job with great love & enthusiasm & a smiling face all the time. He eased our life by providing metro/museum tickets without letting us stand in those huge lines. We enjoyed being in a very centralized & lively location. So close to metro stations, restaurants, art galleries & many facilities. If we ever come back to Paris, we will definitely stay here again.
Our 6 night stay at Hotel du Vieux Paris was exceptional- made memorable by the friendly and efficient staff who went out of their way to ensure you had everything one needed- even arranging transfer from Gard du Nord Eurostar. The original features( including the owner Madame!), made one feel personally welcome, with lovely breakfast and efficient room service with excellent coffee and Madeleines brought to the bedroom for morning coffee. The fluffy white towels, lovely bathroom and exceptional cleanliness and fresh roses in our bedroom, made our stay very comfortable. Very well located to enable one to feel in the centre of Paris within walking distance of the Louvre, Notre Dame, Isle St Lois, Le Marais, Sorbonne, Rue de Mouffetard- and on the doorstep Latin Quarter buzz- yet beautifully quiet interior to ensure a good night's sleep. Thank you to Henri, Alain and all the other staff who provided such excellent and friendly service- we'll be back!
Our stay at the Vieux Paris this summer was the third time that we have stayed there. The location, one block west of the Blvd St. Michel and 20 meters from the Seine, is convenient for almost everything one might wish to do in Paris. In addition, though perhaps a bit small, the rooms are more than adequate and well cared for. The staff are friendly and helpful at arranging transportation and tickets to attractions. And, best of all, there is Henri, who makes us feel like long lost family.
This is a small cute place steps from the St. Michel metro on a quiet street near the Seine. It has charming decor, modern bathrooms and good air conditioning. The elevator is the smallest I've ever been in! The location is great, you can walk everywhere. The breakfasts at 15 euros each are overpriced, like most places.
Henri and the staff make you feel so welcome. I stayed here with my two daughters after initially booking an apartment for 11 days. When we arrived at the apartment, nothing worked. I called the management company and they were unresponsive. The owner said she had changed management companies but she couldn't do anything to help me because of work obligations. The apartment was unlivable due to bugs, no air conditioning, etc. While strolling around St. Germain doing our own literary tour, we walked in Hotel Du Vieux on a whim where we found Henri. He didn't know our story, but his kindness was exactly what we needed. He had a room large enough to accommodate and we took it. So glad we did. The room was very comfortable, service by everyone was accompanied by a smile, clean , fantastic location. I know I'll be back in Paris and this hotel will be my home again! Thank you!
My sister and I stayed at this hotel for 12 days in June. I checked a number of hotels before making a reservation, and I chose this hotel due to it's location, and cancellation policy. The hotel is minutes from the Seine, St. Chappell, and Notre Dame, and the cafe's that are in the area were all wonderful... We were delighted to find that the hotel was as clean, funky,and fun as I read on Trip Advisor and Booking.com - We rented the suites and had plenty of room to spread out and relax. Alain and Henri were wonderful to us..helping us with tickets to various museums, arranging taxi's, and just being over all kind, funny, and super helpful. The hotel is in a very old building, so expect some issues with not having enough electrical outlets, and minor plumbing issues, but they are so minor compared to the comfort of the rooms, and the honest welcoming from the hotel staff. They made what was going to be a good vacation, to a super wonderful vacation, and I recommend staying here with all my heart. We can't wait to go back.
The hotel is wonderfully situated in an incredibly calm little street next to Place St Michel, in my favorite quartier Latin. The room (small suite) was OK, clean and comfortable but without view and expensive. Curiously, their bed is not long enough for average tall persons... The bathroom was spacious but with a disturbingly noisy ventilation device and cheap cosmetics and toilet paper, I found this inadmissible when thinking about their cost. The breakfast was overpriced and one has to order it one day in advance, (never seen that !!!)... The staff was polite, in a correct and distant way, but not really friendly. Also, the taxi company with which they collaborate is 30% more expensive than the normal cabs. I commented this with a taxi driver and he told me that their prices are higher because the hotel withholds a commission! To conclude: I would have really enjoyed it, if several details could have been avoided by the administrators.
Perfect location - minutes from Notre Dame and Latin Quarter. Surprisingly cool room for an old hotel on a v hot day. Very personal and friendly service. A charming historic, cosy hotel. Good showers. Decent wifi. Easy access to Roland Garos via Metro (line 10) from Odeon. Hard to find much wrong other than decor is a bit tired and breakfast options are limited. Plenty of cafes nearby.
