Bathroom with a curtain

Posted Jul 10, 2014
Friendly staff and very central especially close to good metro stops however didn't enjoy the bathroom being cordoned off with nothing but a red curtain.

Good location; thin walls, sound carries.

Idiosyncratic hotel, in quiet side street, quite funky colour schemes, etc. Tight room (OK as was alone in a L shaped triple), one person + luggage lift. 5 minute walk to many restrnts on pedestrian zoned Rue de Petits Carreaux and to closest Metro stations. Sounds (voices, shower running, etc.) carry as doors and walls thin. CRT TV, but could not figure out how to work it with remote. Tub & shower in bathroom. Radiator heat, OK in winter, no a/c. Helpful English speaking staff. OK for short stay. Slight musty (?) smell in room, could have been cleaing agents used. Dim lighting.

Pros: The staff was extremely friendly and the room was neat and comfortable. Breakfast was delicious!
Cons: The shower was slightly uncomfortable and some of the building looked like it was unfinished.
Location: It is within walking distance of the Louvre and Notre Dame. Very close to the metro and also to the open-air market of Rue Montorgueil.
The Hotel Bonne Nouvelle was a pleasant hotel to stay at for our short three days in Paris. Though some of the hotel seemed to be unfinished, it was clean and our room was very comfortable and nicely decorated. All staff were extremely friendly and helpul; they even held our luggage for free on our last day so we could get more sight-seeing in before our late flight. We also paid for breakfast every morning and would be ready for us when we got downstairs. It was always delcious and filling! I would recommend this hotel to younger adults (20+) travelling in a pair or group, since one street specifically in the area was seedy at times. We never felt unsafe at the hotel or on the street it's on, but I advise travellers to use discretion while travelling on the Rue Saint-Denis or take another route back to the hotel at night (such as the Rue Montorgueil) as a precaution. Overall, it was a nice place to stay and I would consider coming back for the quality you get for the price.

In the middle of the action, on a quiet street

Posted Nov 25, 2013
good hotel for the $ -- reminds me of hotels in New York City in the same price range. And like NYC-if you are doing anything other than sleeping here you are missing the point. Close to the Metro and the st denis and Marais neighborhoods. Room was tiny, but decent size bathroom. helpful staff, parking at a discounted rate at a garage only a block or two away.

Great hotel in the 2eme!

Posted Oct 2, 2013
Booked the hotel while boarding my flight to Paris. Arrived at the hotel 12 hours later, at 11am. They had my room ready (unheard of for a boutique in Paris at 11am)! Man at the front desk was friendly and welcoming. Lobby is clean as can be. Elevator is big enough for two people max but is new. Common areas are all clean; when I went there was some light renovation happening in hallways but it was kept well. Room was larger than I expected, new furnishings, spotless bathroom. I got a room on the top floor and it was adorable. Location is great, next to two subway stations. Easy to get to from either airport. Lots to do in the neighborhood! It's off the main path which makes it even more charming.

Hotel Bonne Nouvelle - Paris

Posted Aug 28, 2013
Location: Louvre is less than 15 minute walk - decent proximity for price.
We were in this hotel for 3 nights and it suited us perfectly. The staff was very nice and the room was clean. The neighborhood was safe, not too far from main attractions (about a 10-15 minute walk from Louvre), and resonably priced. However, the room was extremely small, the toilet had to be flushed by lifting up the valve in the back of the toilet box (flush button did not work), and the hotel had an overall sense of being partly under construction. Maybe the construction feel was for some sort of artistic look, but it was a bit bizarre to walk into our room and see dry wall. Overall, this hotel was good and I would recommend it to a friend. It's nothing fancy, but it's confortable, clean, and seamed safe.

Great little hotel in the middle of everything

Posted Aug 13, 2013
Pros: The location was perfectly placed in between the high end of the louvre and the left side was little more poor but it also showed the real Paris peopl
Cons: I think the rooms could be remodeled as the bathrooms have been renovated
Location: You could walk to all the sights. The louvre was our closest landmark. All the fancy places to eat was at its right.
Hotel nouvelle was perfect for my daughter and I! We stayed for six nights and it was great. Bathroom was newly remodeled and the staff was great! The three men were so helpful and very resourceful. The hotel is perfectly situated between all the sights in Paris. It is very close to all the metros too, bonne nouvelle, sentri even les halles. It is not the Marriott, but it felt like home but with all the comfort of a hotel. Definitely would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Doesn't look at all like the picture

Posted Jun 23, 2013 on Hotels.com
Just returned from Paris where I spend 4 night. First thing I noted was that it didn't look anything like the picture. It is in a poor , run down area. Mostly I saw the night manger as I get up early and got in late, but noted he didn't speak much english was hard to ask questions. the elvator is very small and so is the bathroom. I had signed up for 4 nights but the reservation only showed 3 nights had to talk to the day manger to straighten things out,lucky she spoke more English. I would not book this hotel again.
