Excellent Location - Fantastic Find

Posted Mar 20, 2014
Cons: The beds! Way too hard...
Location: Excellent location. Near pretty much everything!
My friend and I stayed at this hotel while on a short break to Paris. This hotel is GREAT. The staff were super helpful and friendly (and spoke good English which helped for the first few days while we brushed up on our French!). There is not elevator in this hotel and our room was on the 5th floor; this didn't bother us as we enjoyed the exercise but it is worth mentioning. The best thing about this hotel is its location, closely followed by its reasonable pricing. Very near the Metro stop of Saint Paul (about 1 minute) but also a short walk from the Louvre, Notre Dame and Pompidou. The one downside to our stay was that the bed was extremely hard and uncomfortable but with the help of some extra blankets we slept find after our first night. However, this could just be a problem with the room we stayed in... All in all, I would highly recommend this hotel. I will definitely be returning!

Small but comfy

Posted Mar 17, 2014
Although the hotel is quite small and the rooms are not spacious it is very well located, the staff were very friendly and the room was very clean . We did not suffer any noise from the adjacent square with its restaurants and bars. Easy walking to most touristy things . Our only disappointment is that Paris is VERY expensive [not the fault of the Hotel] we would return.

Pros: location
Cons: most everything
The manager who greeted me was very nice. Then the fun began. 114 stairs to climb each time i can back to my room. (they advertised having a "lift") hair balls in the shower. no glassware, not even plastic. no soap dish in the shower. hair on the ceiling in the bathroom. (not mine, but i got to see it every time i put in my eye drops) only one electric outlet in the room, unless you unplug the TV set. The one and only positive about the Pratic is the location. did i mention their wifi was terrible as well, as well? The Pratic Hotel is NOT a practical choice for the St. Paul/Marias area of Paris. stay away!

Bedroom was small but comfortable. Bathroom great

Great location. Close to train stations. Bathroom looked like it had been renovated and was really good. Bedroom was small but comfortable. Wifi was a bit tricky but good when it worked. The room and bathroom was clean. Service was friendly and good.

Small, clean and inexpensive hotel in Paris

Posted Jan 12, 2014
Pros: It is very clean and has friendly hotel staff.
Cons: The stairs should be well-lit all the time - and not to rely on motion detector for the lights to turn on.
Location: Nicely located near the Saint Paul Metro Station and conveniently situated near a lot of restaurants, cafes, groceries stores, bakeshops, banks, etc.
If you are looking for a hotel just to sleep in after a long day touring Paris, this is the place to book. It is very clean and is conveniently located. The hotel staff is very nice. There are a lot of places to eat, drink and shop around the hotel. It is near some banks, bakeshops, grocery stores and even a church. It is about 3 minutes walk to the Saint Paul Metro Station. You could also walk to Notre Dame Cathedral. However, the rooms are small and there is no elevator. I would request for lower floors if you don't want to climb stairs. Overall, for the hotel rate and location, I would recommend this hotel.

Perfect location

Friendly staff, ideally located, steep staircase and very small room. Perfect base for a week in Paris. Superb coffee shops close by for breakfast. Can't wait to return.

Fantastic location, room was pretty tiny though!

Posted Dec 6, 2013 on Hotels.com
Hotel was in a lovely location and really easy to get anywhere in Paris. We came to see a concert at Bercy and had no trouble finding our way around. Lots of great value restaurants within walking distance around Le Marais or around Notre Dame. Our room was at the back and pretty small, only room for the bed and yor suitcase really, and wet room door was a shower door with the toilet the other side, so no privacy but room was clean and all we needed for our stay, would definitely return next time.

Clean and convenient

Small but clean room in a convenient location. We were on the 4th floor, so the stairs were a bit of a challenge. Noisy landing, but we weren't too disturbed.

Great location for the money

Posted Nov 21, 2013 on Hotels.com
The hotel was located in the heart of Le Marais. It's within walking distance of a lot of major sites (Louvre, Notre Dame). The staff was friendly and the room was clean. It is a small room as is most hotel rooms in Paris. And there is no elevator but for the price, I didn't mind having a way to burn off those extra carbs.
