I stayed in this hotel for five nights. I absolutely loved their Parisian "Marie Antoinette" decoration and feel, but a friend of mine called it gaudy, so I guess it's up to you and your own personal style. For Paris, it is a very decent price, especially for the GREAT location. It is very close to the Metro and walking distance to many attractions. Marais location great for cafes and funky shopping.

I did their breakfast the first morning and wasn't very impressed with the two biscuits and coffee for 8e. Not bad, but you can get a crepe and cafe from a street vendor that's better for the same price. Also, the free wifi is spotty and didn't work with my devices while I was there.

I had a good experience with the staff, but I agree that they don't go above and beyond for your comfort. But they were all very nice and polite and helpful when I had questions.

Overall, I would recommend this hotel. It was the exact Parisian experience I was looking for. If you are more about comfort and convenience over luxury and service, then you'll enjoy your stay here.

Room Tip: I asked for a terrace room and was given the top floor with a HUGE balcony and it was GREAT (room 16...

I stayed in this great little hotel for four nights. It is clean, cosy, lovely, quiet and in a great location. I loved the ornamented design, the shower was warm and good.
For Paris it was a very decent price, even cheap. Very close to the Metro, walking distance to many attractions, I simply loved it.
With that said, the bed could be more comfi and the staff could be nicer. It is Hotel de nice, after all ;-)

I stayed there for a weekend, a nice small place in center of town, easy access with métro Line 1. The hotel its self is good, for those who dnt seek luxury, spotless clean. No shower curtain, so after each bath every where is wet, as per hotel réception for hygiène reasons they dnt put curtains which i dnt buy it, the internet connection was so so and u get disconnected often. Nxt to hotel there is a very lovely café to enjoy ur Parisien time. . Notre dam is few min walk . In général i dnt mind staying there again in spite of all things i wrote and the day receptionist that was on my nerve

Hotel de Nice was recommended to us by a French colleague and it is excellent for price and location. Walking distance to excellent Paris sights and Metro is wonderful. Marais location great for cafes and funky shopping. Room, bedding, bathroom all clean and attended to by staff routinely throughout both weeks of two separate stays (family of four). Staff helpful always with in-house matters and phoning ahead to assist with next stage of trip etc. Will stay again on next Paris sojourn.

Room Tip: Stayed twice on top floor facing Rue de Rivoli. Views, balcony and breeze.

Our stay at this hotel during this weekend has certainly been our most unpleasant experience of all our numerous hotels stays in our lives. It is a shame the quality and customer care of this hotel.

First we have been installed in a room freshly painted; in addition they had just changed the repugnant wallpaper. The smell was insufferable, biting you eyes and between the musty smell that already had the whole hotel along with the smell of paint was impossible to think of anything else. We had to have the window opened in the rain and during all night in December because it was preferable the cold that the nasty smell.

On a couple of occasions we complained about this and they told us that the only thing to do was to have the window opened because it was freshly painted. For them it seems to be very normal to have the window open all the time in the middle of December and during the rain!!!!.

The hotel looks like the house of terror, the room is also very small and cleanliness is deficient. Our bathroom in addition was dirty. The towels were muddy and the beds and pillows very uncomfortable. The service of the hotel is insufferable and arrogant; in addition it seems to be our fault that the smell of the room was nauseating.

The girl at the reception was the least professional person you can imagine. She was in line with this horrible hotel. We asked her for a claim sheet arguing that it is not normal to rent rooms under these circumstances and she refused and she never gave us a correct invoice neither. She was a horrible person in all aspects. Anyway, everything was disgusting.

Please do not go unless you want to live a nightmare experience in this hotel of terror.

After this terrifying and scary-movie like description of a night spent in a freshly painted room in Hotel de Nice, we are wondering WHY these honourable travellers, if the smell was so unsufferable, did not simply ask to change room, and WHY, if it was such a "nightmare experience" these honourable travellers did stay for another night in such "a hotel of terror". WHY??....
Probably because of the incredible charm of "the receptionnist who was a horrible person in all aspects".

Very colorful and cosy hotel, feels a bit like staying at your slightly excentric aunt's. Enjoyed the tiny balcony with the view to a little square and the great location only 5 minutes walking distance to Notre Dame. Bathroom was not cleaned on arrival, but I was too tired to mention - everything else was fine. Good value.

Good location, helpful staff. We were out sightseeing most of the day, so the room was basic but cosy. We had 2 large bay windows overlooking rue du rivoli and the hotel de ville. Plenty of eating options all around, metro 1 block away, and walking distance to many big sights. We would certainly recommend it to people who need a decent place to stay without spending too much, and who don't mind quaint French style decor, instead of polished 21st century modern hotels.

Room Tip: Room 17 is a corner room with a balcony.
