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 HotelPosted Oct 11, 2014
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 allPosted 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 pricePosted 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.

Great location!!!!Posted Oct 7, 2014
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.

Central but very smallPosted Sep 24, 2014
When I booked this hotel I thought it looked very quaint and classicaly Parision, but the hotel room was really very small, the cleanliness left more to be desired. Tiny toiletries and no tea/coffee making facilities. The hotel staff were very friendly and the breakfast room and breakfast itself was very nice, and if you are looking for somwhere for literally a pitstop from your exploring, as location is good, and fantastic restaurants nearby then book here. But we were on the 5th floor which was brutal without a lift and would have liked a more pleasant, spacious and clean place to relax after a long day.

Great Price for the LocationPosted Sep 5, 2014
This hotel is located in a lovely little plaza about a minute walk away from the St Paul metro station. The general area was quiet even with the window open, though the walls are thin so you may hear people talking while they walk up the staircase. I stayed in a single room -- it was tiny but not too bad honestly. Reasonable size bed, tiny bathroom, no lift so you may have to climb a few floors of stairs. Fantastic price for the location and I'd recommend it immediately to a savings-conscious traveler, especially if you're traveling alone. You need to leave your room key at the front desk whenever you leave the hotel (it's attached to this big clunky metal thing) which isn't really a big deal but it sort of irrationally annoyed me because I'm a bit antisocial and I don't like having someone monitor my comings and goings.

Shall we call it a hostel instead?Posted Sep 2, 2014
Pros: Its location
Cons: Hospitality skills among the staff, cleanliness, room facilities...
Location: Location was good, the little square outside has a bunch of good restaurants and Rivoli street is seconds away.
Upon arrival the hotel door was closed, it was for at least 10 minutes... which concerned me very much. The receptionist that finally let me in had no hospitality skills, he even insisted on the fact that my surname should be pronounced in a different way, because that was the French phonetics! I asked him for the WiFi details and he ignored me, he asked me to request them later. The room was disappointing, no wardrobe, loads of metal hangers (the ones from the dry-cleaners), the bathroom was very basic and was dirty, the complimentary shampoo sachets and the soap was not replenished. The lamp was hanging too low, which made me strike it every time I got up. The duvet cover had blood stains... Only one out of the 5 receptionist, the tallest Algerian guy, was nice and with eye contact. The rest of them totally ignored me, some of them would not even greet back! The location was the only positive thing, but it was also an issue because it was noisy.
