Reviewed 10 May 2012

Nice small rooms with excellent bathroom, new design and good value. Stayed for the weekend together with my sister and her fiancé and they were lucky to get the junior suite, very nice with angled roof and views over Paris roof tops. Romantic.
Good value breakfast, 12 EUR, with lots of cheese, fruit, veg and two types of pancakes!
Only downside was that the neighbors had a party Sat night .. but that has nothing to do with the hotel.

Reviewed 25 April 2012

As some other reviews have mentioned, the rooms (and hotel itself) were a little smaller than expected but certainly suitable as a base for exploring Paris. The hotel was clean, modern and bathroom luxurious. We were in a superior suite so expect our room may have been larger than some.

The location is ideal, away from the hustle and bustle, it didn't feel overtly touristy. Just a short walk to the Metro station and within walking distance from the Louvre made it very easy to get around and visit the sites easily. It's also within walking distance of a few good bars and restaurants.

We didn't have the hotel breakfast (it felt a little odd to sit in reception and eat) but instead went to the creperie on the corner which offered a good value breakfast and good service- we managed to get by with our very minimal French.

Finally, the hotel staff were very helpful during our stay and spoke excellent English. After returning home we realised we'd left some expensive sunglasses behind - we received a prompt email reply from Icone and the glasses were quickly posted back to us in the UK (at our own cost of course). Naturally we were impressed by this as we'd half expected them to have been considered 'lost'.

We'd definitely stay again.

As I am traveling twice a month to Paris, I am always looking for good value 3 stars hotels. The Icone is well situated near blv Haussmann and nice cafes. The interior is oK and well designed. As business, breakfast is not included in the price. WIFI works really good and service is friendly. Had some pb with AMEX when I was there

I stayed here earlier this year and it was in a prime location in the middle of Paris. We were very impressed with the interior of the hotel - the room was spacious - mini bar and electronic safe. The bathroom was lovely a large shower cubicle and bath. All very clean and lots of fresh towels. When we stayed there was however scaffolding outside due to maintence work being carried out and so there wasnt much of a view out the window. Location was brilliant, however I do suggest taking a map with you as we did get lost trying to find our way to the hotel and around Paris. Also we found many of the people in the shops didnt speak very good english including taxi drivers so perhaps learn a little french!
Breakfast was very continental and buffet style and we were a little surprised to find it wasnt included in the price - thus being billed for it after we'd eaten. The staff however were friendly and gave us a map highlighting the major attractions and organised a shuttle bus back to the airport on our last day.
It was a pleasure to stay here - only down side was we only went for 2 nights wish it could have been longer!

Location - Very convenient Metro stop just round the corner. Good selection of cafes and restaurants on the main street. Hotel entrance is in an alley, away from traffic noises.

Ambience - I believe its been newly refurbished and it does look funky. Many other reviews on other websites say it's corridors are dark and not properly lit ... but that's just because the lights are motion / sound activated. Implies good energy saving practice by management.

Room - Smaller than originally expected but that's Europe for you. Just wish that photos dipicted on hotel sites weren't quite so misleading. Bed was comfortable with no creaks or noises. Clean sheets, extra pillows in the wardrobe. My only complaint would be that the hotel specifically stated the all hotel rooms had air-conditioning but for the 2 nights we were there we had none. Hotel management handled our complaint rather poorly by saying there was nothing they could do to help us. THey suggested if we were hot we should just sleep with the windows open. But there was a pub or a private party downstairs that didn't shut until 3 am. So we didn't sleep very much for the entire duration of our stay ~ despite me trying to sleep with earplugs. The following night dump trucks were emptying garbage bins in the alley at like 3 - 4 am!!

Facilities - Lift to all floors, tv in room, clean bathroom (but damp stain on wall), shower screen did not close properly so water leaked out onto bathroom floor after each and every shower.

Service - Good housekeeping. Room was cleaned everyday. Saddened by fact that no assistance was given when we approached front desk about our aircond not working. Night staff told me there was nothing wrong with their A/C and that I may not be doing it right. Asked him to follow me to the room to take a look but he refused. Room was hot and had no ventilation so was forced to sleep with window open. Next day we asked the front desk again and was told that management had expected outside temps to be low this time of year so they have turned off the A/C centrally. So who is telling the truth??? I paid for a room with A/C facilities ... I believe I reserve the right to decide whether or not I want it on or off.

A little disconcerting that when we checked in the staff at the desk took down my credit card details and wrote it in an exercise book ~ and I mean ALL my card details!! Card number, 3-digit security code on the back, full name as printed on card and expiry date. I dunno if this is common practice but I don't think that its a very secure way of storing details of guests. And am pretty sure they shouldn't write down security codes along side all the other details! Suppose this book was misplaced or stolen???

My friend and I stayed here for 3 nights during a "girls weekend" in Paris. We had a lovely time. The location was incredibly convenient - walking distance to the Opera (where the airport bus picks up and drops off) - and just steps to a metro stop. There were cute cafes and restaurants nearby, and we were able to walk to the Louvre, Montmartre, and other key locations. The room was of standard size compared to other European cities (although the bathroom was huge!), and it was exceptionally clean. The beds and linens were comfortable.
There was construction going on when we first arrived, but the scaffolding was removed the 2nd day, so I assume it's finished now. All of our interactions with the staff were very pleasant and helpful. Overall, I would definitely recommend this hotel!
