Hotel du Quai-Voltaire

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 November 2011

I booked this hotel 8 months before our visit to Paris. I read the then, current reviews. I now experienced the hotel. Ahh....It is ONLY OK. We had room 51, 5th floor, great view of the Lourve and the bridges. The view is great if one appreciates it. Our stay was on Tues, Wed, Thurs. The street noise is managable, but not over-whelming. One gets use to it. You are in the middle of the big city life. The hotel should not be faulted for the location. The room was small, old, quaint, shabby French, worn desk. Mattress was full size, low and hard. The linens were updated. It had a room safe,good storage closet. Bathroom was clean but dated. Bath towels were thin and no wash cloths, of course. The bathtub was an old high-sided to step in to. Or the tub floor is higher than the bathroom floor. The tub drainage was slow. Toiletries were lame, with only small packets of liquid body soap and shoe shine! Front desk for the day and night shift were business like. Not very pleasant, and acted like they are tired of the tourist industry. Upon leaving with our bags on the 5th floor, we discovered the elevator was out of order! It would have been helpful to post signs on each floor-OUT OF ORDER! The man at the reception desk said he called our room at the 11am check out time. He said since we did not answer the phone, he thought we were showering! NO- we were waiting for a broken, cramped elevator! Lots of fun taking luggage down 5 flights of stairs. At least the male maid helped carry a piece of luggage down the 5 flights and he did not expect a tip. If the VIEW is most important, stay here.

We stayed here for just 1 night in November and we Thanked our stars we did'nt book this hotel for more than 1 night. It was terrible, the bed they have for 2 ppl is good for just on 1 person. Very unfriendly staff who think they are doing a favor by having guests in, no soaps and shampoos, the water does not drain in the tub, very noisy as it is right on the street. Not a good experience.

We were regretting not having stayed in another hotel that we had booked for 5 nights. The only thing this hotel has going for itself is its location. Right on the Siene river , it is close to a very bustling nice neighborhood. We were glad we only stayed for only a few several hours in this hotel. Definitely not worth it!!!

A friend and I choose that hotel because of tghe location, so convinient about 500m from Orsay Museum, in front of Louvres and so close to the heart of St Germain. The hotel itself is correct, the rooms were a bit oldfashioned but I had requested a quiet room and we got what we asked for, a room on the back of the hotel - no view exept the courtyard but a spacey room and very quiet at night. The bathroom was fine, not huge but with a bath + shower, normal bath towels (i read a review complaining about little towels but to me they were exactly like any other hotel bath towels!).The beds were very comfortable and there was a TV in the room. The breakfast is normal french style : 1 croissant, one bread roll, jam butter tea/coffee and freshly squeezed orange juice. You can get extra like omelet/ fried eggs etc against payment. The lady we saw at breakfast was very friendly, one of the man at the reception was helpful, the other one was polite and helpful but would be nice if they would SMILE!
I would recommend this hotel for anyone staying for a few days and wanting to visit the museums and the St Germain / St Michel area. it is the perfect location and reasonable priced hotel (I shared a room with a friend and we paid 70 euros per night each.)

The hotel is well located but the downside is that it is on a soul-less major road with noisy traffic, it lacks the sense of community of a few blocks south. The staff are mixed: some somewhat friendly, others downright ignorant. The rooms are shabby and mean: mean little towels, mean little breakfast, even soap too mean to lather. My advice try St Germein de Present for better value and more ambience.

Room Tip: Decide whether you want a river view or a good nights sleep

For us (a "mature" couple, who have been to Paris before), this was a close to perfect hotel. The location is terrific, walking distance to much of what we wanted to see, Louvre, Orangerie, and Musee d'Orsay, St. Germain des Pres, Ile de la Cite, Sorbonne area, etc. Exciting just to look out the window and see the Seine. The hotel public rooms are attractive. Our room was very comfortable, with good storage (we were there for a week) and a working desk. Wireless access in the rooms and an open computer available on the main floor. Excellent continental breakfast. Friendly and helpful staff. The neighborhood was interesting, with good restaurants.

Room Tip: Some reviews have mentioned street noise. We were not bothered by that and preferred to be on that s...

Not put off by the saga of the bed bugs, we booked! It's a great location, basic and clean and in summary " quaint" . It's all about location. The orange juice at breakfast was freshly squeezed! Water hot , rooms clean and our triple room spacious.
