“Small room but adequate for our needs”
Reviewed 5 June 2011

Closer to Bourse metro than any other, the hotel was adequate for our needs. The location was excellent (without luggage!) as was within walking distance of the Louvre and the lovely Palais Royal gardens.
The room was small but very clean. The staff were reasonably friendly with one in particular very helpful with providing more milk for our tea, a corkscrew for our wine and more info about the surrounding area.
I would recommend this hotel for the price and location.

Do your self a favour and do not stay at this TIM Hotel unless you are very wealthy and enjoy sleeping in a closet. The rooms would be comical if not for that fact that they are over priced. The staff as well do their best to be rude and ignorant, all in all avoid it like the 18th century Plague.

My girlfriend and her sister stayed here, and encountered a nightmare. The rooms were tiny and dirty, the staff rude and unfriendly, but this is to be expected for a hotel in Paris. When they stepped out of the hotel for 3 hours and came back, they found that $3500 USD had been stolen from their room. There was no sign of tampering with the lock, and they left most of my girlfriend's credit cards there, only taking her debit card. What was interesting is that she gave the hotel information about this card when she reserved the hotel, along with other personal information - with this information, the thief was able to extract $1500 from her card. Only someone with a key and with access to the hotel's database and files could have done this. So it is clear that at least one member of the hotel staff is involved in criminal activity against the guests.

When they brought this issue up with the hotel staff, they were extremely rude. When my girlfriend showed them the police report and mentioned that she would report them online, the man at the front desk shrugged his shoulders and said "I don't care". They still had to pay, he said. When she said that this was all they had, he told them to leave the hotel. He didn't even bother expressing concern over the incident or apologizing for the hotel's poor security - assuming he himself was not involved. I urge anyone wanting to stay in Paris to avoid this hotel and its criminal employees.

We stayed in Paris for 6 days. The main reason for our stay was to see all the sites around the city. This hotel is situated within walking distance of the Palais Royal, Louvre, and many other sites. Also in front of the Louvre you can catch the "open bus" which you can purchase up to 3 days of rides. This is a city tour bus which is double decker, and open second deck. You can hop on and off up to 50 different stops and visit the sites and hop back on all day. Around the corner from the Louvre is a great shopping area and full of restaurants, cafes and pastry shops. The hotel is not luxurious but comfortable and great to take in the local flavor of the city. Our room was cleaned every day and the staff was very friendly and volunteered information about the city to make make our stay easier. Overall our stay in Paris is just wonderful!

7 floors, 46 rooms. Air conditioning (a rare find) and FREE wifi. Friendly English speaking staff. Location is withing walking distance of most major Paris attractions (Louvre, Left Bank, Notre Dame, Effiel Tower is about 2 miles). The rooms are small, but functional. If you are just looking for a clean, convenient, inexpensive place to sleep in Paris, this is a great choice.
