“Great location, esp. for price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 September 2013

While it's wearying, walking up 5 flights of stairs every night, this hotel has been nothing but great to us. Good service, clean room, and we adore the location. The breakfast is a bit pricey, and I wouldn't bother with it, but we're right on the metro, there are great pastry places nearby, and the rooms are surprisingly comfortable. This will likely be my French retreat, at least until I'm rich enough to afford some kind of luxury place.

By the way, if you are looking for a pool, a fitness center, or anything else, please keep in mind this is a BUDGET hotel in a nice part of town. You are paying for location, not frippery.

I was a bit disappointed at first when we enter the hotel but after a few minutes of asking the receptionist to change our room without any doubt it was a superb place to stay low cost its clean and we came very late but we didn't have any problem i would come back in this hotel if ever i return to paris it is so accessible to everything and a very quiet place supermarkets and bars are so close and they even have two metro lane nearby.... Good work and keep it up! God Bless

The location is good, but in general, especially the common rooms, the hotel is not that clean (the towel was not clean at all). The wc is in a really small room, basically the door open next to it so there's no space for you to move, and the man behind the desk is far from nice.

I arrived 5.10/12 .I was given room no: 18 .It was stinking of cigarettes. I complained No sympathy just a fresh air spray deposited in the room,Within a day I was covered with bites all over my body. which I discovered were flea bites. Pulling the bed away friom the wall I discovered left over rubish hair tisues etc. When I arrived at my next destination in the Charante I went to the phamastist who doagnosed me with flea infestation. The Hotelel reception was rather lazy

Room Tip: Room no. 18 smelt of smoke also infested with fleas

Rooms were dirty and smelly and without elevator there is quite a work to get to the upper floors. Nothing in this place was all right - maybe the walking distance to the cemetary where Jim Morrison is buried is the only thing to mention.

This hotel is cheap and has a good location, but the rooms are gloomy. There is no elevator and if you are unlucky you will have to carry your luggage to the 5th floor. To use the TV you have to get the remote control at the reception desk. Free wi-fi.

There were no redeeming qualities at Grand Hotel Voltaire Paris. All hallways and rooms stank of old smoke, the linens and towels were torn and old, the rooms facing the road were extremely noisy, and the television was broken.

This is a six floor building with no elevator and a very difficult spiral staircase. Would be okay for 20€ but not 80€.

At breakfast, there were no plates or bowls provided. 6€ per person bought us coffee, 1 croissont and 1 roll. Do not stay here.

Room Tip: Any rooms on the higher floors require lots of climbs up the stairs. If possible, avoid rooms copen...
