It was so comfortable and great for s family. We had two one bedroom apartments and it was comfortable and homely. The kitchen was fully stocked enough for us to buy some breakfast food and cook a meal. The pocket wifi that they offer is super handy and the laundry is free and open 24/7. Free wifi and free Netflix and there is even a popcorn machine in your room. Loved it. Will definitely be back.

Excellent accommodation very roomy. We booked room 201 and 502 fantastic facilities apartment very clean and self contained. Staff lovely,friendly and very helpful, easy to walk to sights and great restaurants.

The photos on the website showed very light bright rooms and the apartment we were given for 6 of us was very dull and dark. The walls were a dark blue colour with just lamps to light it. Although I have never been in a brothel, that is what I would describe what it looked like. Also the ensuite bedroom smelt like my great grandmas house. God bless her. But not very nice. Stale smoke with a mix of mustyness. The woman on reception was nice. They gave us water. You also received a fine of £40 if dishes were not washed but we was provided with one dishwasher tablet and no washing up liquid.

our room was very big and comfortable With all the equipment we needed Except that we had only one bathroom in the whole apartment and it was in the bedroom which was very bothering us and the children

We stayed here on our first visit to Paris for 4 nights. The room was large and tidy/clean. The location perfect, close to subway but away from busy tourist areas. So many great restaurants close by and places to visit. But the best thing was the welcoming helpful and informative staff who went out of their way to ensure not on our stay at the hotel was comfortable, but we got the most out of our 4 days. They had good advice on where to visit and answered all our questions. So thanks to the team, you were all great! We will be back with our kids once they are a bit bigger to share the Paris experience with them ☺️ Rob & Beth x

Stayed here for 2 nights with our family on a trip to France. This is really an excellent hotel. From the moment you walk in and greeted by an extremely helpful and friendly staff to the very well maintained apartment and the superb location. We had an apartment for 4 which had 2 large bedrooms with excellent bed, two well equiped bathrooms and a really nice small balcony facing an inside court. I really cannot recommend this hotel enough. If you are looking for a place to stay in paris where you can both feel like a true parisian and have the hotel service you're used to then look no further.

It's dirty. The bathroom shower was moldy and gross. I felt like I had to wear shoes the whole time as my feet were dirty from the floor. Bed linens were fine, I hope they were clean. They just need clean & maintenance improvements. We paid over $400+ a night and I expect CLEAN! I don't mind old, whatever but I expect cleanliness in any room. Lots of water pipe & neighboring unit noice. Some street noise. Poor lighting.

This is a wonderful hotel close to Dining, transport and major attractions. The rooms and very comfortable and clean. The greatest assets though is their staff who go above and beyond every day to make life easy for their guests. Our family would definitely say again.

I stayed at the Villa Daubenton for two nights with my 9 year old daughter and we were looked after so well it made our first visit to Paris a truly memorable one. The staff are excellent and looked after us impeccably. They made us feel special and nothing was too much bother for them. We were greeted with a refreshing drink and given great advice on taking in the sights of Paris. One of the best features was having access to a mobile Wi-Fi device that I could take with me throughout the day which meant I could easily find the best way to get from attraction to attraction. The room was lovely and spacious. We took advantage of the breakfast offer on our first morning and it was great. My daughter loved watching Netflix each night. I would recommend staying here to anyone who wants value for money and a great place to stay with great staff.

Very good service from all the team, but especially Sandra. Different style of rooms are available and free coffee. I recommend with garden view. Location is very good close to shops, restaurants and Scientific Research Centres.
