“Tasteful, comfortable, good location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 November 2013

I stay here each year and have always had a pleasant stay. The hotel is decorated in tasteful colours and is updated, clean with large comfortable rooms. The location just next to the Madeleine is ideal. The staff is well-trained, friendly and very helpful. Morning breakfast is of a high quality. Good value for the price.

Room Tip: Have normally stayed on top floor - outside balcony wraps around.

Highly consider staying at this hotel. What Hotel de l'Arcade may lack in the bells-and-whistles of other unnecessarily "extravagant" hotels, it makes up for it in the following:

1) Convenience:
- only THREE stops from Gare de Lyon to Madeleine station, on Line 14
- very close to Madeleine station itself
- central location to tourist sites, shopping, and other points of interest all within a short distance

2) Staff:
- great overall service from the staff members (i.e. didn't make you feel that you were imposing on them)
- openly offered vouchers/discounts for various points of interests (Euro Disney, bus/boat tours, restaurants, etc.)

3) Rooms:
- cozy and quaint 2 story loft, provides enough room and space (we are a family of three and were more than comfortable).
- Immediate street has low traffic = low noise at night
- Besides, those visiting Paris are not going to remain inside the hotel room for the entire day...do they?

Enjoy Paris!

Room Tip: We were assigned a room on the 6th floor, which provides visitors with a roof-top view of the surrou...

I probably wouldn't mind staying here again it wasn't bad, it's central location. Cozy, quiet, decent staff. The only problem I had was that the bathroom slightly smelled of urine and facilities were slightly dated.

- Beds were also super firm.
- Free wifi but you have to sign in every 10 minutes super annoying!
- Cute room layout, felt like a dollhouse, I stayed on the top level.
- Great location.
- restaurant sucks, but go to the bakery down the street. Its really good!

We just returned from a trip to Paris and stayed at Hotel de L'Arcade. My husband had stayed there twice before and was very happy with it. So when it came time to choose a place to stay for our Paris trip together, we went with L'Arcade. First- the location is great. It's a few minutes from the Madeleine subway stop, Fauchon (famous for its chocolate and macarons) and Hediard. There are also a couple of great shops within two blocks of the hotel- a great men's accessories store- L'Aiglon, a great bakery where we ate breakfast at daily, and a pharmacie. The staff is excellent, helpful, and welcoming. The room was small, but clean. Overall the hotel is not super fancy, but it's well appointed, and I am not the kind of person who wants something crazy fancy, just a place that's reliable, clean, and has good service. I am a paranoid New Yorker and I am worried about bed bugs and vermin in general. So before my husband ever stayed at this hotel, I had researched the internet high and low for any reviews stating that there may have been a bed bug issue at this hotel and didn't find any. When we got there, we literally removed all the sheets, examined the mattresses themselves, and even lifted them up to look under. We didn't see anything sketchy. And we had no evidence of bites or anything like that when we were there. I know, I know, sounds extreme, but in New York the bed bug scare is a real concern. The only thing I can say that may be a criticism is that after sleeping in the bed the first night, my husband and I both had painful backs, as the mattress was a little soft and sagging in certain spots. But that's dependent on the person, and we are used to a very firm mattress at home. We didn't eat at the hotel's restaurant since there are so many other places to check out in Paris, so I can't comment on the food or pricing there. But overall, I would definitely recommend this hotel and I plan to stay here next time I'm in Paris.

This hotel has a great central location for walking to all major areas and sights in Paris. It was, however very noisy, there was no coffee maker in the room, and the breakfast was not included. Nice staff, but very uninvolved .

Room Tip: Not on the street side

We got here after a long day of travel, and were very happy with the warm welcome and efficient check in procedure. The room, although small seemed nice enough. However, there was a big house-keeping mess up and we found a huge blood stain on the WC! Naturally we were disgusted and questioned the hygiene, but the owner/manager handled it excellently. Besides being profusely apologetic she also upgraded us to the nicest suite - a serviced apartment on the 5th floor of the new building - and that just made our stay in Paris. I would highly recommend paying the extra price and getting this room. Its got a nice balcony where we would sit out and having our breakfast and coffee. Its got a huge living room and a very nice sized bathroom too. The staff, from the front desk to housekeeping, is excellent and very helpful. A big advantage of this hotel is also its location - a 15 minute walk to both the tuilleries and louvre and a 15 minute walk to the arc de triomphe. I've been to Paris on multiple occasions and I highly recommend this hotel - its not over priced like so many Paris hotels while still providing good service.

Room Tip: The serviced apartment on the 5th floor of the new building.

It not a hotel for luxury. It is clean and the rooms are decent. We stayed in a duplex room, very small tv, old carpet, so you do get the feel that the hotel is old. However we did get AC which is a plus on the hot Paris days. The location is very nice, if you like to walk you are not so far from most of the Paris attractions. The breakfast is average with a small selection, not worth the money as there are many other places near it you can go eat. Free internet is always a nice touch to a hotel and they do offer it :)

Room Tip: The Duplex Rooms are nice!
