Recent guest reviews
good 4 star hotel Well decorated and renovated room with good service (they lend you a smartphone you can use it during your visit outside) but no room service old bathroom and good breakfast. Wifi was sometimes not working at all in my room ( I was on 4th floor 405#) but that was ok . Really nice staff and wonderful terrace. great location 5 sec from authentic parisian outside market opened everyday. would definitely come back!
We stayed at the Villa Alessandra for a long weekend, and we were pleasantly surprised. The hotel is in a great location, close to the Arc de Triomphe, with plenty of excellent bars and restaurants nearby, and a short walk from the metro. It is located down a lttle side street, so the rooms are quiet. However, the things that impressed us the most were firstly the staff, who were genuinely friendly and helpful, and secondly the room. Although not huge, it was an adequate size, with a large bed and french windows. The bathroom was a fair size, with a very good shower. The whole room was spotless, with nice clean bedding and towels. Breakfast was fairly good - although not extensive, there was a couple of hot dishes, eggs, meats and cheeses, cereals, yoghurts, juices, and a good selection of tasty croissants, pastries and breads. The tea and coffee were good too. There is no hotel bar as such, but drinks can be purchased at reception - returning from an evening out, we were able to get a lovely tray with a pot of English tea and milk, which we took up to the room. Overall, an excellent choice for an easy weekend break sightseeing in Paris - we would definitely stay there again.
We were in this hotel for four nights.Staff were excellent and helpful. Room and bathroom were very clean and we had fresh towels everyday. Excellent location just 5-10 mins walk to Arc de triomphe,Champs Elysees and metro stations.. We definitely stay here again ... From Loma Linda ,California
Thanks for kindness in every moment I need. Very clean room and nice location to reach central city. Room is cosy, but rather small. Hope there is a kettle too that I can make tea easily. The bathtub didn't work properly, but except for that, good. Servants are very kind and ready to serve. Thanks for sending my lost property back to London even.
Having been using this hotel when I stay in Paris for about the last 10 years, I was delighted to discover this time that it had undergone a refurbishment since my prior stay. New, and very comfortable matresses, new and nice squishy pillows. Nice new bed coverings and curtains. New paint, new furnishings on the little back terrace. I'm in a position to compare before and after. Adding a hair dryer was a nice touch. Wall mounted flat screen TV's free up space on the desk in the room. And the best? The HANDY phone, something I'd only seen in hotels in Asia before. Basically, you have at your disposition (for free) a Android phone during your stay with a certain number of countries that you can call (for free) and internet connectivity, also for free. No more need to pick up a pre-paid SIM card and pay for the very expensive data rates that France has while you are in Paris! You can take it with you while you are out sightseeing, use it to find your way around, look up restaurants, check your emails etc. If you're out with it, any calls to your room at the hotel are forwarded to your HANDY phone. This was really a GREAT initiative on behalf of the management and one that I doubt many hotels in Paris are offering yet. As usual, the staff was great and it's nice to be greeted by name and with a big smile when I get there. You really can't beat the location either. Extremely central, close to the metro, the Arc de Triomphe and the Champs Elysees yet in a small, quiet and very calm little square, so there is absolutely no traffic noise. You'd be hard pressed to find the same combination of great location, no noise, safe neighborhood with a very good shopping street 1 minute away and extremely friendly staff at the same price elsewhere in Paris.
I booked this room via Hotwire and was pleasantly surprised. The Villa Alessandra has victorian charm and decor. The location was ideal as I walked everywhere, had easy access to the metro and buses. Its about 20-30 minutes from most of the iconic places in Paris. I didn't spend much time in the room so I don't have much to say other than the room was comfortable with lots of sunshine piercing through the large window. I was a solo traveler and the room size was perfect for one but two people max! The mobile device in the room was a bonus as I used it daily, mostly for Google Maps so I didn't use my phone battery. The staff were pleasant and welcoming. I went to breakfast one day and literally just ate a bowl of fruit. I didn't realize my reservation did not include breakfast and was very surprised at checkout to find out the cost of breakfast was 14 euro, which is expensive regardless of just having the fruit... The hotel can arrange pickup/drop off from the airport which would have been helpful to know prior to my arrival as the UBER cost more than the hotel service company. Overall, the LOCATION coupled with pleasant staff and service by far makes this hotel 5 stars. I highly recommend and would totally reserve for my next trip to Paris.
The place is definitely not a 4 star. We were literally in shock when I got into our room. It was very outdated and very small for two people. We couldn't even lay our luggages open on the floor because the walking space was so tiny. The door lock was almost broken and the staff couldn't fix it so we had to spend like 3 minutes each time we went in. However, the washroom is nice and the cleaning ladies were good. The best part of Villa Alessandra is its location. It's super convenient to all the major attractions and there is a local street market right in the ally. We spent more than 10 days there and eventually got used to it. It wasn't that bad after all (except the poor sound isolation) but it's definitely false advertisement. Don't trust the pictures.
Very nice room with light furniture and doors, not dark, very good breakfast with fresh fruits, just the shower would need to be fixed (water squirting everywhere)... Price is lower than in other close Parisian hotels.
Great room, very nice hotel, perfect location to local attractions. The staff were very friendly. Room was clean. Cannot comment on breakfast as we did not stay for breakfast. There are lovely local coffee shops and pastry shops just around the corner.
Staff are very friendly and supportive people, help and advice don't save their time and efforts specifically Kim and Fabio. The location is very near from arch de triumph 3 to 4 minutes walk. quit and clean. not expensive hotel but may its old fashion hotel. overall its best value for your money.
