Reviewed 2 December 2007

Found a website that touted this place as being close to Gare St. Lazare. In actuality, it is closer to Gare du Nord, only a 5-10 minute walk away, and about a 20-25 minute walk to Gare St. Lazare and Gallerie Lafayette. Also, there's a metro stop close by. The hotel is just off a small square on Rue Lafayette. Not a bad location, but not the greatest, either.

The room was small but clean, and the staff was very accomodating.

Had a room on the top floor facing the street. Nice view of a nice little street, and it is relatively quiet except for one night when a bunch of people were having some sort of party a building or two away and their windows were open and one guy who must've been completely hammered made noises that sounded like a donkey braying. He did this over and over and over...it woke us, of course, but we ended up having a great laugh about it.

Also, beware of the little teenage brats who like to hang out on the bridge over the street. They like to try to spit down on anyone who passes under the bridge.

Quite excellent! And the concierge was very interested in my having a pleasant stay... Bathroom imaculate, fresh air through large window. 100 steps from major Metro line #7 and sweet city plaza square Montholon Plaza on corner. Everything was excellent and safe. Had 24 hour concierge coverage and a nice elevator with lots of light and bright ... all you can hope for. You can lock up your extra cash in the hotel safe-- your traveling papers, etc... you are actually encouraged to do so even though the area was extremely safe and friendly. Lots of cafes and eating establishments within one block. All in all it was a most marvelous choice... the other 3 du Pre "chain" of sweet hotels visible nearby incase any one of the 4 are booked, try one of the other three. Grocery store within one block which came in handy and this street, Rue Pierre Semard, has an bridge that goes across above the street so that you can always just look for that cross bridge to tell you your hotel is right there. I used that as a visual to find my way back from the Metro station. All in all excellent, excellent. If you come in from CDG airport... take the RER to Gare du Nord and when you get off it is three blocks south to the hotel. And... on the way...near Gare du Nord check out a pastry shop called Pastrie Naturale on the street in front of the BIG CLOCK... (has the word naturalle in the sign)... as you walk those three block they do a good delicious everything at low prices. Remember to get your money-EUROs in your home town because if you start changing your money near the Louvre or other famous sites, it is major mark-up penalty. There are places with no service charge (found one near L'Opera) on changing your money, so look for them... ALL IN ALL...WONDERFUL STAY...If I were to come again, I would choose this hotel. I cannot recommend it more highly. Choose a hotel with the name "du Pre" in it especially if you are traveling as a single person.
