Which type of room were you in? We just booked a stay here.
We has a double at the rear by the lift., on the 3rd or 4th floor. Not sure which.There was no disturbance from the lift. Even though small the room was well decorated. As the hotel is on a side road, even a room on the front would still be quite. We did not eat breakfast at the hotel, as part of the fun of staying in central Paris is the café culture and there are loads of great places to eat near by. ar to many to mention.
Thanks for your question. Madame Odillard chose the suite on the 1st floor. It has a blue and white fabric motif. The suite consists of an entry, a sitting room with love seat, side chair, desk, cocktail table, mini refrigerator and an armoire which is the only closet. The bedroom had a side table along with night stands on both sides of the bed. The tv is a flat screen mounted in the corner to the left of the bed.The bathroom is large with Jacuzzi/shower combination all in white marble. Typical Paris hotels have small rooms. The hotel has been completely remodeled since I first started staying with Madame Odillard. By earning her 4th star in an aggressive rating market the hotel has been significantly upgraded. My biggest recommendation is if you are used to staying at major chain hotels you will have a much different experience as the Hotel du Vieux is truly an expression of the passion of the owner to give her guest the best experience she can. I am sure there are mistakes but I know the staff shares Madames passion. When you arrive or when you first meet Madame Odillard give her my warmest regards and hug would be really appreciated. I have traveled to over 50 countries and stayed at the best hotels in the world, if it is my choice, I would always the come to the most interesting city in the world and one of the most unique boutique Hotels in the world. But I have a bias. I think you will too. Have a great visit and use the staff to help make the most of your days in Paris.
Hi Jenny: I booked a room on the fifth floor, can't remember the exact number, but it ended in 5, as are all the suites. We were really happy with the size, as it had a separate sitting room, which made for more space and options for use. I did overhear someone else (at the hotel) saying their room was very small, and that they wished they had booked a suite. Most of the bathrooms in Paris (from what I viewed on the internet) are extremely small and cramped. So opting for a suite was a good choice as it was a good size, and the spa bath was relaxing to use after our lengthy days out sightseeing. Henri is a gem, he's the main manager, and couldn't have been more helpful. Also, the remnants of the original 16th C in the wooden beams in the bedrooms, and portions of the stone walls just off the reception area, gave a unique ambience. And being a boutique hotel, with less rooms than a chain hotel, made for a cosy and comfortable experience. This sounds so much like my original posting, but you can see that I recommend the Vieux Hotel Paris highly. Enjoy your stay!

We booked a classic double room w queen size bed. Number 38 & loved it!
Glad to hear! Hope you love Paris as much as my husband and I did. We booked a deluxe room with a queen-sized bed and opted for the special offer on their website. This upgraded us to a suite with free full breakfast breakfast delivered to the room and two free tickets to the Louvre or the Orsay. It was really great! The room we were in was Room 45. The floor above has lofts as well.
If you're a foodie, check out Aux Anysetiers du Roy on Ile St. Louis for excellent traditional French food, behind Notre Dame. It's right across the bridge and on the main street of the island. Try the ice cream fro Berthillon - it's fantastic.
Enjoy and safe travels,
