“Excellent location, but very small rooms”
Reviewed 15 September 2013

I stayed at Hotel Cambon for 3 nights on a business trip. Staff was friendly and helpful, the rooms were clean but quite small and the linen was of good quality. Rue Cambon is not particularly busy and the traffic moves slowly, which meant the room was quiet with little street noise. The breakfast was fine, but limited. Whilst Hotel Cambon fit the bill, I can't give it more than 3 stars, as I expected a bit more for the €325/night rate. I would go back on a business trip, but would look for better value for money on a personal trip.

I read the reviews coming in and was fearful that this hotel would be quite crummy. Reality is that I found it (as well as other business travelers with me) quite great. Yes - the rooms are relatively small. But, the room quality was high. The A/C was cold. The shower was hot. The linens were clean/fresh. The breakfast is basic...but enough. I like that the hotel has a more modern feel to it. Plus, the room was super quiet. I couldn't hear a thing above/below/beside. I would stay here again without hesitation. Also, the location absolutely cannot be beat. Right in the dead center of the high end shops and within super convenient walking distance to the major sites.

I stayed in this hotel with my husband and daughter because of a misunderstanding of the travel agency and thank God she made this mistake, we love it.
It's clean, beautiful, very well located and the service is " impecável"!!

We stayed at Hotel Cambon for nine days in late June on the seventh floor in a junior suite with small balconies off the bedroom and bathroom, overlooking Paris rooftops and the Jardin du Tuileries. This is the special kind of hotel that is fast disappearing in Paris: Madame, la propriétaire (for the past 45 years), keeping a watchful eye onsite (with her cute and spoiled dachshund) to assure that the hotel lives up to a standard of "personal service where we get to know each of our clients." The manager, reception and all staff provided professional service that at the same time was very accueillant and chaleureux. They learn their clients quickly, by name and preferences. Room-size by Paris standards was average, but the hotel and our room were very elegantly and cleverly designed, and we would always gladly trade the few additional square meters for the intimate and thoughtful, personal service at Hotel Cambon. We've been coming to Paris fairly regularly for the past 25 years and also find room prices to be very reasonable, especially for this area of the city. We had a lovely stay here. Top marks.

We've been staying at the Cambon for many years.. It is a boutique hotel that is a very well managed operation. Madam Simeon and her staff are gracious and accommodating. The rooms are well appointed (and recently renovated). Some of the rooms are small--good for one person. But they have larger rooms as well. Inquire and make sure the room fits your particular needs. There are no lines for anything. The breakfast is great and omelets exceptional. I've also stayed there on business trips. You couldn't ask for a better location in Paris. If you're looking for an upscale, hassle free and personal hotel, I highly recommend it.

I booked this place believing it is a 4star only to find it's a b&b charging as a 4star hotel: very small room, tiny lift (it couldnt fit the trolley so somebody brought it afterwards!); when advertise parking they refer to the public one nearby; extra city-tourist taxes not included in the price and mentioned only at the departure; charged the card used to secure the booking prior to our arrival, although we wanted to pay cash; safe doesnt take a laptop, no tea/coffee facilities in the room, only 1pair of sleepers & bathrobe for..two for a 5nght stay; no 24hour reception-the main entrance gets locked at night so imagine urself waiting for15min or so, in "good humour" in the middle of the night, in frt of ur expensive "4start ..hotel!" 4 somebody to attend it, otherwise they hav plenty of staff: 4receptionists and their supervisor but only 1worker 2do the foot work in the rooms and push carrying customers luggage. Always enjoy 2c the good old french style at work, saw it, did it, next! The b&b is in a good location though.

Dear guest ,
Thank you for taking time to write your comment.
We are truly sorry that you didn’t find the feeling at the Cambon you may expect.
Our 40 different rooms have the size required for a 4 stars in Paris. If the room you had booked was not enough large for you, the reception would have been pleased to propose you a other category (from 14 sq meters for single room to 33 sq meters for junior suite).
You are in the old center of Paris and the Cambon is an hotel open since 40 years . the lift is for 3 persons and luggages of course . Our Porter is on service to help you with your luggage.
The city tax is always an extra charge and it was mentioned on your booking. As an extra charge it should be paid on departure with other extras.
The credit card you’ve done on booking was only a guarantee except if you have booked a special early booking rate via a booking engine (Ex: Booking .com) where the cancellation policy is not refundable. In that case, we charge the total amount of your stay on the booking receiving date.

Your comment regarding the safe size for Laptop, We believe that action will be taken as soon as the purchase of safes will be programmed.
Regarding the Slippers and bathrobe, we apologize for the missing .You should have ask for one more to our housekeeper.
Regarding the night, for security the main door is closed at midnight. After this time there is a bell that warns the night audit of your arrival. I will get back to the night porter to see why you had to wait 15 mn for opening. We can assure you this not by any means our standards.
After our explanations, we hope that the Cambon will definitely look like a nice home in Paris .
We really hope to welcoming you again.
Kind regards

We were suprised by the size of our room/bathroom. We had expected a small space, but we were happy to find our room and bathroom were a good size. They are in the process of updating the hallways with new paint, etc. Our room was nicely decorated. The front desk staff was very helpful. They helped us sign into the hotel computer to take care of our flight check in and they took care of some noisy occupants in the middle of a night after we called to complain. The location was a great location. We were able to walk to most of the sights. There are also close metro stations and bike rental out front.

Room Tip: We had a courtyard room which wasn't noisy.
