Full of character! Be aware of the steep stairs

Posted Nov 23, 2014
Pros: It's character
Cons: Keep it the same
Location: See above
Location is perfect, just off Rue de Rivioli, near Bastille and St. Paul metros. Paris isles and Concorde place within walking distance. Good restaurants just outside the door in the quaint square, or more along the Rue de Rivioli where you can also get good breakfasts (no need to have at the hotel). But be fully aware that the stairs are steep, circular up 6 floors. A rest is needed half way up! Cases have to go up with you, no lift. But the character compensates for this. Rooms are small but well equiped. Don't expect the Ritz

Not great

Posted Nov 1, 2014
Worst place I have been in a long time. Not very clean, noisy, small and uncomfortable bed.

Great location

Posted Oct 28, 2014
Pros: Proximity to everything. subway very close .
As in all hotels in Europe,this room is no exception...very small,but clean and overlooks a very pretty square with restaurants. Also very close to the Marais district. No elevator,dragging suitcases up the windy stairs is exhausting,but once again,if you're staying in a budget hotel in Europe,thats the norm. Staff mostly speak some English and try to be helpful.

Fantastic location and very affordable price for this cute little old hotel . Yes it has tiny rooms, steep stairs w no lift, and a very old tired interior , but hey it's in central Paris in the heart of the bustling Marais , the square it overlooks is adorable and I would book it again in a heartbeat

Touring Paris from the Practic Hotel

Posted Oct 11, 2014
Pros: Location
Cons: Size of room
Location: Close to metro and walk to some sites.
The Practic hotel is in an ideal location in Paris for touring. It is within 100yds of the St. Paul Metro stop on Line 1 which makes it easy to get to and from. It is within a moderate walk of Notre Dame and the Louvre. It is quiet, facing a courtyard away from the streets. And it is reasonably priced for a Paris hotel. There are many cafes, boulaneries and even grocery stores within a short walk. On the down side is the size of the rooms, although at different price ranges, the one we had was hard for two people to move around. Still, I'd recommend it for a budget priced hotel in an excellent location.

Good location, but that's all

Posted Oct 9, 2014
Paris was booked up, so I took this hotel that was also listed in popular guide. Great location near the Marais (and Notre Dame), but six flight walk-up, tiny dingy room (no space to open suitcase except on the bed), and the toilet/sink were in the shower area (so you were standing on wet slippery tile to use toilet or sink)! Smelled bad too.

Perfectly decent and great price

Posted Oct 8, 2014
Pros: price & location
Cons: bed comfort
Location: don't miss the view from the top of the Centre Pompidou
The hotel is well-situated in the Marais with very friendly staff. Seemed reasonably priced relative to comparable properties in the neighborhood (we paid 137 euro for a double room in October). Yes, stairs are steep and some rooms are located 6 flights up. Request a first or second floor room if possible. It is nothing fancy, but it's quaint and European. Wifi was a little testy, but if you're persistent and care, you can make it happen. There are lots of cool shops and boutiques (vintage clothes and local designers - affordable ones!) nearby and plenty of bars and fun places to stop for coffee, beer or wine along the way. If you like walking, you can walk to all the big destinations in Paris, but closet are the Notre Dam, the Louvre & Luxembourg Garden.

Hotel staff was friendly and helpful, location is wonderful. But no elevator - it was the only problem for us.

Great location, lousy hotel.

Posted Oct 5, 2014
The hotel is in a great location - the only positive. I was given a tiny room on level 5 - no lift and no offer of assistance with luggage. The staff were distant and unhelpful throughout my 5 night stay.
