“Excellent location, clean, tidy, great value for money.”
Reviewed 8 January 2014

We have stayed at the hotel for 9 nights from the end of December 2013 to the beginning of January 2014. We found the room to be very clean, pleasant and cosy, with a very comfortable bed and great sound proofing. Staff were very friendly and helpful, and provided us with very valuable information and tips on Parisian experiences. Location of the hotel is excellent - just around the corner from the metro, it provided easy and quick access to the city centre and other interesting areas. It was also great to be so close to the trendy Marais area - we have enjoyed walking around and exploring! All in all, a very pleasant stay.

Room Tip: Boulangerie and Patisserie across the road on Rue du Temple is open from 7am and serves excellent co...

Easy to find only about 150m from the nearest Metro (either Republique or Temple) and only a handful of stops from Gare Du Nord. A warm welcome from the reception staff and despite being early she made our room available within 10 minutes (although there's room to leave baggage if required) Very clean throughout the hotel, a comfortable room and overall very good value for a 3 star. Lovely character breakfast room in the basement where the staff were very friendly and eager to please with all the normal continental breakfast cuisine. Hotel is ideally located for the centre. We walked to Notre Dame in 25 mins or a 10 min metro ride is easy too. Several fast foods outlets can be found on the Republique square but for a nice evening meal do try either La Bonne Cecile in the next road (Rue Notre Dame de Nazareth) of even better is a lovely bistro called the Pharmacie in one of the side streets, 2mins walk east of the square. Try a sunny walk along the canal just north of the square.

Room Tip: We had a room on the first floor at the front (102) and weren't bothered by any noise

This is the second time we stay at Hotel Meslay and once again it was a great experience. The setting gives a taste of stepping back in time which adds to getting connecting with the soul of the City.
Its location, so close to Republique, makes Paris quickly accessible whether by bus, tubes or simply by foot. With the renovations on Place de la Republique finally over, stepping out on a clear and crisp winter morning onto the openess of this vast public space is unbeatable.

I arrived at the Hotel Meslay last week very ill with strep throat and ended up spending way more time in my hotel room in Paris on vacation than I intended to. The staff was extremely caring and helpful. When I first arrived, the front desk clerk helped make me a doctor's appointment. Throughout the remainder of my stay, the rest of the staff was extremely caring and kind, asking if I was feeling better and offering to bring me anything I might need. I greatly appreciated their assistance and kindness. Luckily after some antibiotics, I began feeling better and was able to enjoy my trip. The staff continued to be extremely helpful in booking an airport shuttle and making recommendations for tours. I booked the deluxe room, which was a very large room by European standards. The room was clean and well-equipped. The Metro is only a two blocks away and you are right next to the Forum du Republique, and within easy walking distance from the Seine and Notre Dame.

It's less than a couple of minutes walk from a couple of metros. All major attractions are very accessible so ideal in that sense. Very close to the Republique which is a landmark, easy to get local help when you get lost.
Con: I could hear the snoring from the neighboring room, music from the opposite building, karaoke etc. so getting sleep at nights was difficult.
Wifi is free but they give you a code which works for a few hours and after that you have to get the code again. make sure you insist on getting a code for 24 hours.

Reviewed 27 September 2013

I've been to Paris a few times now & this is the best hotel I've stayed in. We booked a triple room which was a good size for all of us. The location was great & the continental breakfast was great value for money. There is a patisserie on the opposite side of the road, which sells delicious cheese & ham croissants! If you need breakfast on the hop, it's perfect.The staff at Hotel Meslay are great especially the ladies in charge of breakfast, they are so friendly & attentive. We had a great 2 night stay & I would recommend staying here. This will definitely be my hotel of choice whenever I visit Paris again. Like many of the reviews my only criticism would be lack of air conditioning, the room did get pretty warm quite quick. However, great little hotel & great staff.

Reviewed 20 August 2013

We booked our room directly through their website after reading reviews on TripAdvisor and found a great summer rate for our August vacation. The room was a good size, very clean, and we loved the location near Forum du Republique. The only negative is that we were expecting an air conditioned room, but it wasn't. Luckily the weather was great and we could sleep with our windows open. The street gets a little noisy at night, but the fan was enough to keep the temp at a comfortable level.

We needed to leave a couple of days early due to a family emergency, and they did not charge us for the additional nights we had booked despite their 48 hour notice policy. Great place!
