I traveled to Paris in September of this year with my fiancé and a friend. We arrived in via the Eurostar train from London, and found it easy to navigate to this hotel via public transportation (it is about 5 blocks walk from the Blanche underground stop). Upon arrival, there was what seemed to be a slight mixup with our...

Great location with bus stop in front other than that the room is small, the tempature either super cold or super hot. We had booked 5 rooms in this hotel for all my traveling buddies but none of them was happy.

Dear sylvia893, Hello and thank you for taking the time to write this review. Perhaps my team was not made aware there was a problem with the temperature in all 5 rooms? Each room has radiators with knobs that you can turn to increase or decrease the temperature manually. I am very sorry to hear you weren't able to use...

Just got back from a mini break to Paris on the Eurostar. We walked from Gare du Nord to the hotel -about 20 mins. On arrival, we knew we were a bit early to check in but were told our room would be ready in 25 mins. We sat in the quirky lounge area and logged onto the free wi-if....

We spent the weekend @ Hotel Josephine & found everything to be great. The girl on reception was really friendly and explained everything really well. The room was 602 - we had booked through secret escapes what was a 'superior' - I think that meant we got roll top bath. The room was clean, bedding fresh - nothing to complain...

I wouldn't have given this hotel such a bad review if it was billed as 2/3 star but it is supposed to be 4 star & charges equivalently. I wanted a quirky little boutique hotel which it is. However I also expected cleanliness, perfect decoration & a decent location for the money. Sadly the hall & stairs were v dirty...

Neighbourhood Profile
Opera / Bourse
The neighbourhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades, and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here, modern day workers continue to take advantage of the legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theatres, and cinemas sit side by side with French bistros predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in another. The area is most famous for the Palais Garnier opera house and glamorous department stores.
