BEST location, near so many cafe's, bakery, a store that includes wine cheese drinks and other food. So close to the Metro and the bikes. Our room was always clean, very spacious. It was nice to actually have a shower, sink and toilet separate (something you would never get in the states). The staff was so friendly and helpful. Why...

There is free wifi and a phone system that allows free calls including back to the States and that you can use around the city for internet at wifi hot spots so the need to buy a cell phone plan to use abroad is obviates except for those who...

Loved everything about this boutique hotel. The location was ideal - 10 minute walk to the Louvre, 15 minute walk to Notre Dame, 7 minutes from the metro station, and 10 minutes from a great pedestrian (mostly) street - Rue Montorgueil - with great shops, restaurants, cafes and people watching! Another must-see a few blocks away is St. Eustache -...

A first class boutique hotel well located in the first arrondissement. The hotel is fresh and modern and its staff extremely knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. Breakfast is self service and rises above the usual croissant and piece of baguette. Its location gives easy access to local bars and restaurants - the ones we tried on hotel recommendation were of a...

Centrally located, just up from the Louvre. Good cafes and bistros in the area. Funky hotel concept. Very friendly and helpful staff. Cool lounge area and honesty bar. Lovely rooms. Puffy duvets that feel luxurious. Will definitely be staying here again.

I have stayed at the sister property Hotel Crayon for over 15 years. Had to try this property. It is fabulous, with the staff and the location being the biggest positives. The rooms are unique and well appointed. Recently cell phones were added to the rooms that allow free calls globally...a big plus!

Stayed here for a week with my husband. Tiny (think micro) but clean room in a very safe and relatively quiet neighborhood. Central location. Walking distance to the metro, the Louvre, Le Marais, Georges Pompidou Center, good restaurants and much more. Really an unbeatable location and excellent value for money.

Very pleasant environment. Very creative, artistic design, with Crayon theme one has to see to believe. Attention paid to details and personal touch throughout. Small gathering place next to dining area. 24 hr attendant. Helpful, informed, kind, bilingual staff. Very close to many major sites, shopping, grocery, restaurants, entertainment. Great place to walk to and fro. Very pleased with accomodations....

Great location in central Paris, in walking distance to Louvre and other sights. Nice staff. The room and bathroom were nicely designed and clean but very small. One of two lamps was broken and couldn't be repaired. My room was located on the street side and very noisy on Saturday night. All in all not perfect but good price/quality ratio...

“Bathroom in small room is compact, cozy. Shower entrance small. Shower and water quality very pleasant and comfortable. Small desk and stool included in room. Cozy bed and bedding.”

“Room 301 was very small. One side of the bed is against the wall with little space on the open side. But room enough for my self and two large suitcases, altho the suitcases had to stay closed in order to have room to walk. I did not have a problem with this, as I'm there just to sleep. My only, only complaint was the internet did not work in my room on my laptop, so I had to go down to the lobby to use my laptop. My phone was ok, and I'm sure I was using data roaming while on my phone in the room. The room was clean, and as I mentioned above, the shower was glass-enclosed so everything stayed dry, and the water pressure was amazing and very hot!”
