DO NOT STAY HERE!Posted Jan 20, 2014
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!

Small, clean and inexpensive hotel in ParisPosted 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.

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 convenientPosted Dec 3, 2013 on Hotels.com
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 moneyPosted 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.

Superb location, fairly ropey hotelPosted Nov 21, 2013
Then again, it was hardly expensive. Staff were nice. Don't really know why I had to have a tiny room on the sixth floor with no lift, though, when the hotel didn't seem to be full. It was super-central, though, and did the job.

Perfect locationPosted Nov 18, 2013 on Hotels.com
Having never been to Paris before, we certainly picked the best location with this hotel. From here we were able to walk to almost all of the sights easily. There were lots of fantastic restaurants within a ten minute radius also. The hotel itself was perfect for what we wanted. We weren't put off by the other reviews of the rooms being too small. For a weekend in this city why would you need a large room? We wanted a clean room with a comfortable bed which was exactly what we found here. We had a room overlooking the square and even with the window open all night we were not disturbed by noise. All members of staff were extremely polite and helpful. Just one small thing to note - it says they have an iron, which they dont. We would highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a cheap hotel in a fantastic location.

Good basic hotel but no extrasPosted Nov 13, 2013
Pros: Bed very comfortable, and room and bathroom clean.
Cons: Television didn't work and wasn't fixed. The internet connection repeatedly lost its signal e.g.making it impossible to complete online check-in
Location: Very well located for Bastille Opera, museums (Carnavalet, etc.) not too far to walk to Notre Dame/Louvre. Restaurants in square at end of street.
The Pratic provides clean rooms and comfortable beds but little else. Internet access was frustratingly unreliable - cutting out while trying to check-in online for instance. The television did not work and was not fixed. Remember to book breakfast in advance because on holidays not even a cup of coffee can be rustled up. But the Pratic is in a very good location for the Bastille Opera and much else in east-central Paris, so if you only need a bed for the night and a shower in the morning then it will be fine.
