In the middle of the city.

Posted Feb 14, 2018
Pros: Hotel staff was one of the best we have every stayed at.
Cons: Nothing
Location: We could get to everything in Paris from where we stayed.
The hotel staff was great and did everything to make our stay perfect. We did not know how to speak French and we had no problems anywhere we went.

Clean and tidy. Convenient facilities. But rather small so I had to find more space for my suitcase by using the space under the desk.

Great hotel in a so-so neighbourhood

Posted Nov 27, 2017
The hotel itself was wonderful - staff were great, everything felt new, bed and linens were comfortable, hot water with pressure, good wifi, but the neighbourhood not so much. I was with my husband the entire time, but if I was a single female walking by myself (day or night) I’d be very wary. It was very odd. The street the hotel is closest too (Rue des Petites Écuries and Rue du Faubourg Saint Denis) is a totally happening area. Cafes and pubs frequented by many and good eats. Walk a block East to the nearest metro station (Château d’Eau) and it’s a different story. Hawkers and random men in your face. Walk a block South to the Saint-Denis metro station and that felt a bit safer. For such a small distance there were extreme differences in demographics. Would still recommend this place but just want to make sure those reading this can make an informed decision.

hotel in x arrondissment. excellent rate

Posted Nov 18, 2017
Pros: Position is very nice and rate was excellent
Cons: The rooms are poor, the lights was pretty low and complicate to use
Location: Location is great with a lot of interesting place in the neighborhood. Close to Metro station too
The hotel is a little dark. The staff was boring. The room pretty small with a complicate switch for the lights. Noisy and without double window.

Dissapoiting Hotel

Posted Nov 14, 2017
The location was good as it was about 20 minutes away from the Lourve however the area did not feel safe to walk around at night. The hotel felt very small with one tiny lift that could fit no more than 2 people in it. The room itself was also small which was dissapoiting as it looked bigger in the picture and there was barely enough space for 2 people to unpack their stuff without being ontop of one another. On the first night I realised my bathroom door wouldn't close so asked the staff to fix it and was told someone needs to hold and push it from the outside so I can close it on the inside?? Eventually we just had to put a thick piece of card under the door so it wouldn't swing open as it was too difficult to force it shut from the outside. Breakfast was also poor with only a selection of eggs, beans and miniature sausages for hot food, none of which tasted good. The only saving grace was that (minus the door situation) the staff were helpful and always polite and there are some nice bars literally right outside the hotel for those people looking for a place close by to drink. Unfortunately the hotel is definitely a fixer-upper and I would not stay again.

Hello, Regarding the rooms size I promise you that they are in the same size that other hotel of the same category. It's exactly the same for the elevator! We would like to inform you that we have larger superior rooms with just a small supplement of 20€. Regarding the breakfast we answer more than 100% of the Best Western criteria with a very wide choice including BIO products. We make homemade preparations like our scrambled eggs or our pancakes. Our pastries come from the best bakery of the 10th district. We have a small charming boutique hotel of 32 rooms, it is a family hotel we do not look like the huge hotel with 250 rooms. The neighborhood is absolutely not dangerous I promise. There are just many well-known restaurants and bars, concert halls like the New Morning, one of Paris's historic halls. We remain at your disposal. Kind regards, Léonard

Well located and convenient stay

Posted Nov 6, 2017 on Hotels
Hotel is well located, close enough to Gare du Nord and Gare de l'Est but also surrounded by good bars and restaurants on your doorstep. Bed was really comfortable, did a great job for a short stay.

Book your hotel with the right site

Posted Sep 18, 2017 on Hotels
I am more disappointed with booking with Hotels.com. My friend booked with Trivago and got a 80% lower rate than us. In addition, he was entitled to free breakfast while we have to pay for ours.

Hello, We understand your surprise but know that we change our rates every day. We adapt our rates according to the demand and our availabilities. The booking mechanism is the same as for a plane or train ticket. Our rates are the same on all websites. Your colleague surely made his reservation at another time than you did and that's why he did not get the same rate. We remain at your disposal foe any further information. Kind regards, Léonard Teboul

First time in Paris

Posted Sep 9, 2017
Pros: Great staff, great location for both Eurostar and the sights and quiet
Cons: Better coffee in the room as the instant stuff provided wasn't very nice
Location: Lots of bars and bistros
The hotel was within walking distance of all the sites we wished to see. not appearing to be in the most salubrious area it was surprisingly quiet,but lively at night. Lots of bistros and bars nearby
