Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I have written several reviews on the Hotel du Quai Voltaire. This was my fifth return and last one before it closed for renovations. As it is now being modernized, I was assured by the hotel it would be just as charming in its new transition. The staff were professional and helpful. They made you feel welcome. The view from the room overlooking the Seine and Louvre is breathtaking. A very historical setting, it’s guests included many famous names of the past. Rooms were very French and exhibited the “old world” appeal. Until the unveiling of the hotel’s step into the new world, it will be interesting to experience my first step into the modernized Hotel du Quai Voltaire.

We have stayed in the Hotel du Quai Voltaire many times, and we were just there 2 weeks ago. It is the only place we consider staying when we are in Paris. The view from most of the rooms is unparalleled. The rooms have large french windows, some of them open to small balconies, and all look at the Seine and the Louvre. Considering how much the hotel charges for a room, this hotel is a real find!

The rooms themselves vary, but most are on the smaller side. Most rooms have ensuite facilites with blow dryers. When I go there, I usually pack an inexpensive down feather pillow, because I prefer a better pillow than they offer. The beds are fairly comfortable, the linens are clean, and the rooms are serviced daily by quiet polite housekeepers. The people who work there are ALWAYS very kind and pleasant and willing to help with anything we might need.

The location is fabulous. it is two blocks to the Musee D'Orsay RER/Metro stop and to the Musee D"Orsay itself. The Louvre is a short walk over the bridge. Many exceptional restauants are very nearby, and the hotel is literally surrounded by the many high end antique stores the area is known for.

When we stay there off season (winter), we can usually get an even lower rate than they advertise, but it is wise to book directly with the hotel for this.

I was reluctant to write a rave reivew, for fear the place would get so popular that they might not have room for me in the future, but I realize I am not alone. I feel very lucky to have discovered this hotel. You will too; keep your expectations to a comfortable neat room with an amazing view, and you will be as happy as I.

Loved the hotel! Just got back on Sunday. Beautiful view of the Louvre right across the street. You can open up your window and look right at it.
Word of warning though....if you're a light sleeper, bring earplugs. The traffic on the street is pretty loud all night.
Andre, one of the desk clerks, is the nicest man in France. Very helpful and kind.

After I became used to the smallness of my hotel room (common in France, not in the U.S.), I absolutely loved the room. The view of the Louvre and Seine is great, and the hotel is handily located a 5-10 minute walk to the Orsay, St. Michel and St. Germaine-des-Pres metro stations. The St. Germaine neighborhood and Latin Quarter are both conveniently close. The hotel staff is very kind and will make dinner reservations for you if you ask. Breakfast is available at the hotel and is both reasonably priced and freshly made. I highly recommend this hotel, as it is an excellent value for the price.

Do not stay here. Period.

Let me preface this review by saying that I lived for two years in Paris and speak pretty good French, so I'm no stranger to French service practices, etc. Additionally, I travel to Paris just about every other month and have stayed at a lot of hotels there.

First off, the room was full of bugs (see the picture I added) - I mean literally crawling with them. They only seem to come out at night, of course that's probably the time you'll want to be in the room.

That being said, the staff is so terrible here you will forget about the bugs. I've dealt with my fair share of rude French hotel staff in my day, but nothing even comes close to what I experienced at this hotel during my one night stay there:

I got back super late after going out, maybe about 4am. I was out with a friend who lives outside of the city, so I offered to get her a room for the night since it was so late. The guy at the check in desk was instantly angry and started to refuse to let us a room because it was so late (which I found funny because you'd think the hotel would gladly accept money for a partial night - good for business). Finally he agreed but angrily made all this insinuation about my friend and I, demanding to see her ID. She was totally offended and aghast. The whole ordeal was almost menacing: every question directed at him or action (trying to pass him credit card) was met by him holding up his hand and yelling that we wait a second.

After retiring to our rooms, my friend remembered that she had left something with me and called the lobby for my room number so she could retrieve it. The guy at the desk refused to give it to her, insisting she tell him why she needed it. After much asking, he finally gave it to her, but she said she actually felt scared after dealing with him. Overall, I've had less problems traveling with female friends in conservative Muslim countries, than at this hotel.

Even the daytime clerk was pretty bad, but nothing in comparison to the night clerk.

Bottom line: there are so many other better hotels in Paris that are similarly priced and don't treat you terribly, have a bug infestation and openly insult your traveling companions

This little hotel has the most perfect location. Request a room with a balcony, these rooms overlook the Seine River and the Louvre. You can see the Touleries, the ferris wheel and the famous booksellers of the Seine from your hotel window!

Request a room on one of the higher floors, as the busy quai road gets very noisy.

Pros:
-- Location is superb!
-- Charming old-school Paris feel
-- Great price
-- Balcony overlooks the Seine, Louvre

Cons:
-- Noisy street can make sleeping difficult in summer
-- No air conditioning
-- Comfortable but not modern rooms

The Hotel du Quai-Voltaire is my favorite because of the location, although if I were to go to Paris in the summer, I might stay elsewhere (no A/C means sleeping with the windows open -- and it is very noisy!) but I still find the hotel very charming in a bohemian, old-world style.

This isn't a fancy high-rise modern hotel, it's a comfortable, well-worn place where you can practically envision the ghosts of Oscar Wilde and Voltaire himself roaming the halls.

For those on a super-budget, they also offer "European" style rooms, without a bathroom. We've always requested an en-suite room, and even in the height of summer, a double with a private bath cost about $170 USD.

What a great find. I searched a lot of places before booking and found that while the Du Quai-Voltaire is not cheap by my American standard, it is for Paris standards. It sits right across from the river from the Louvre Museum. Our room was on the fourth floor and had a beautiful french door that opened up to look out at the Louvre. The room was not large but there was plenty of room. The bathroom had a huge tub, and was just the right size.

The staff always greeted us upon arrival and were very attentive to our needs. They spoke English well. The hotel was clean charming and the perfect home bast from which to experience this magical city.

The Voltaire is a charming, romantic hotel. It has superb views of the Seine and is truly central to all parts of Paris. Ensure you are on the second floor to avoid bus passengers staring in through your window.

Spent 2 nights at this hotel last week and had a very nice time-OVERALL.

When we first arrived, we were a little surprised at the shabbiness of the room-we were on 3rd floor at the front. There were stains on the dark red carpet, the "built- in" wardrobes looked as though a child had put them together and the doors always stuck when trying to open or close them! They looked horrible and did nothing for the room. The bed was small and very low-down - but, the linen was spotless. The bathroom is in some need of renovation - it's PINK! Yes, the noise is something to contend with but I had already read all the reviews about that, so was prepared. You do need the windows closed at night and I did put earplugs in on the 2nd night-and had a better night's sleep. Even in November, though, the room was warm and it would have been nice to have had the window open-no chance with the traffic outside. Having said that, the views are WONDERFUL!!!! I can honestly say that the views made the place and I don't think you could get views like this from any other hotel on this side of the river.

I would probably not stay here again-unless the rooms and bathrooms were updated. All the room doors looked as though they had had some work done to them but no one had bothered to repaint them. This is not what I would expect from a hotel in any country. I found the staff to be friendly and have no complaint at all.

The hotel is so convenient for everything-almost next door to the Musee D'orsay which has a huge collection of Impressionist art and across the river from the Louvre. The location is also perfect for restaurants. A pick of ours would be the "Vieux Bistro", alongside from the Notre Dame. The food and atmosphere were excellent. 12 Escargot at 14 Euros is good value to me and the Beef Bourginogne was perfect. It was also full of French diners which, as someone from London who hates restaurants full of tourists, was a delight!

Sorry not sure, they were working on the metro so it was closed, we used Uber taxis the whole time. The hotel is practically next door to the musee d’orsay if that is any help.

We stayed on the 5th floor. Had windows that open and a great view of the Seine and Louvre. No refrigerator but staff provided plenty of ice. We had twin beds. Basic but clean and charming. Everyone at the hotel was friendly, informative and helpful. Close to and within easy walking distance to restaurants, the Louvre, Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame and public transportation. Nice area to stroll along the Seine. Highly recommend it.

Hi breakfast is not included, it is 12 euro for a continental breakfast including fresh orange juice, coffee or tea and croissant. There are several cafes within a couple of minutes walk where you can get a cheaper breakfast, but I loved the quaint breakfast room and the convenience

Answer from VeroniqueGLINEUR

Dear Sir, No we do not have the air conditioning but we have fan towers in each room. For your information we are in a very old building dating mid 18th century and the walls being very thick they keep the hotel rather cool. On top of it we are facing the North so sun does not shine on the building. Have a nice day! Kind regards Véronique GLINEUR Manager
