Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 September 2012

Having read other people's reviews I was not surprised to be completely satisfied with my stay. For the price (in Paris) I think this hotel offers a rewarding experience with great design, excellent customer service, good location and clean amenities. I highly recommend Joyce Hotel and the surrounding area if you are looking for a place to stay in Paris.

The Joyce hotel is very nicely located in a small street in Paris. It's very easy to get there with the Metro and RER trains and therefore also very easy to get to all the sightseeing places in Paris. With the Metro everzthing can be reached in about 10-15min, the Moulin Rouge is only a 10min walk away but the hotel's location isn't sleazy or anything at all, so no worries.
The hotel itself has a very modern feeling, a cool style and a nice atmosphere. The staff is very friendly and helpful with information about how to get around in this city (which isn't always easy...). The rooms are basic with a sprinkle of luxury (don't expect too much) but have everything you need and very comfortable beds.
The breakfast buffet is very good and great value, leaves you for a perfect start into the day.
For anyone who likes a good and affordable hotel that is close to everything without being in a too busy area, the Joyce Hotel is definitely a very good option.

Room Tip: The rooms on the upper floors are probably favourable

Not bad. But I think the maintenance of the public areas can be improved. There is also a noticeable number of homeless people on the streets. Some obviously have been occupying their spots for quite some time already. The cordiality of the people of Paris are mixed. Some are super accommodating and very cordial. Many others are just total snubs.

We stayed at the Hotel Joyce for three nights on an inclusive bed and breakfast rate. The location of the hotel is excellent, 10 minutes walk to Galeries Lafayette and to the Monmartre area. Only a 20 minute walk to Place de la Concorde and Jardin des Tuileries. We even managed to walk from Gare du Nord to the hotel in about 30 minutes. There is a good Carrefour City supermarket just past the metro station selling a good range of sandwiches and salads. Metro St Georges is only about 3 minutes walk away and there is also a bus service which takes you right to the centre along Rue de Rivoli, Louvre and over the Seine to the left bank area, such as Jardin des Plantes. The area around is very smart and quiet and safe at night and as the hotel is on a small side street we slept really well with no disturbance, hard to believe we were right in the centre of Paris.
Hotel itself has been recently refurbished to a high standard with very tasteful modern decor. Rooms are small as it typical of a Paris city centre hotel but very comfortable and well appointed. No noise from hotel or adjacent rooms, airconditioning worked very well and double glazed windows stopped any outside noise.
Breakfast was very good with lots of choice, staff very helpful and is served from 7am until 10am. Reception staff also very welcoming and friendly, very efficient check-in and check-out. A particularly nice feature is the free soft drinks bar available throughout the day in the lobby. Good choice of hot and cold drinks and nibbles such as crisps, biscuits, cakes, olives etc. Really nice to be able to take refreshments in pleasant surroundings after a busy day sightseeing.
We really enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Joyce and would be pleased to stay there again in the future, we highly recommend it.

Stayed here for two nights after reading trip advisor reviews. Was not disappointed room are clean and more than adequate for a short stay. Bed was a queen but comfy I pod dock was a bonus meaning I didn't have to pack my charger or speakers. Only gripe shower was roasting for the first ten mituea and took a while to change temp. Run it before showing ! Breakfast was ok and I did enjoy the complimantry drinks even if they were warm. Good location five minutes walk from the metro lots of restaurants and bars within walking distance. Would defently stay here if I was visiting Paris again.

Stayed here for 2 nights. Extremely helpful and friendly staff gave warm welcome. Room exceptionally clean, comfortable and very nicely decorated. Open bar a very nice and welcome gesture after a long day of sightseeing. Would highly recommend.

All good except the bed I had was poor. I paid a premium for a superior room and asked for a double bed. The room was really, really nice. But waking in the middle of te night through discomfort I realised te bed was just two singles with double sheets over them.
