I spent 7 quite comfortable nights in this hotel. The main perk of this hotel is that it's really in the very-very center of Paris and doesn't cost that much compared to other options in downtown. This hotel is very clean, receptionists are smiling and helpful. Rooms are small,

With the price of this hotel in central Paris, of course, one can’t expect much from the hotel. But it’s functional, and I think it serves the purpose for just sleep and shower. Though the bathroom looks dated, it’s very practical. I was given Room no. 11 which faces the back

Dear Mr McB, Thank you so much for posting your comment. We totally agree to your point of view. The location of our hotel is exceptional. In a quiet street but near to the lovely rue Mouffetard with it's Market, Shops, Bars, Cafés and Restaurants. The Metro station is only a stone cast from the hotel and brings you to all major attractions in a few minutes. Wihtin the year we are forecasting a refurbishment of the hotel and it would be a pleasure to welcome you back. Best wishes for a happy new year Kind regards Madeleine

I have been to Paris a few times but my senior parents have never been to Paris. The staff made our family feel very welcome and the hotel is beautiful at a great price. The hot water is hot and everything is very nice and clean. I would definitely recommend this hotel and hope

Hotel L'esperance does not have a view of the Eiffel Tower, the best/lowest cost place i know for a Tower view is in MontMatre, which is a way from the center of Paris, but nearly all hotels there have a tower view, even small (not too expensive).

Hello, I don't think our hotel is related to this place, but I'll ask the old owner if she knows something. It might take some time. Do you have the name of the owner in Hotel de l'Esperance rue Vavin?

"Ask for one off the street side"
"Unfortunately the room (44) does not have so good sound insulation."
"I think the street side was more to look at, perhaps the back rooms would have less sound."
"So the trick here is to ask for the room with a bathtub. I checked it out and it's bigger than the other rooms."
"There's an ice machine in the hall."
US$102 - US$337 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
