“Tiny but perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 May 2014

Immaculate, well-staffed hotel. Our room was very small, but quiet, nicely decorated, and clean. The bed was perfectly comfortable, and checkin/checkout was a breeze. The photos on the hotel website seem totally accurate to me, so if you like what you see there, you won't be disappointed. Front desk was very friendly when helping us make dinner reservations and reserve a car to the airport early in the morning.

Stayed August 2013, travelled as a couple

stay in this lovely hotel for 3 days. great location just 4mins walk to the Louvre~ and also close to the subway. just walk away distance to every attraction like Champs Elysee and La Seine as well as love lock bridge..the room is a bit tiny but fair enough for couples / friends and maybe a bit small for big group of family. however ,there are different theme for each room with cute design and parisian style. love it and will choose the hotel next time if go back again!

Room Tip: you may request bigger room / superior room while booking if go with small group family.

Stayed in this hotel in March 2014. Hotel is very comfortably located. An attractive design of the hotel overall, clean and very well done rooms, a bit small though.. I can also mention friendly and helpful staff. Would definitely recommend and come back myself next time!

Hotel Crayon is a cute little boutique hotel right by the Louvre. The location could not have been better or more central. There was also a huge subway station just a couple of blocks away, which was perfect. Awesome staff, great rooms. And the water pressure in the shower was outstanding!!! This was so nice to have after a long flight and days of touring. We just loved everything about it.

My friend and I decided on Hotel Crayon because of its location (near the Louvre and the metro) and because it seemed like a great value--and it was. The staff was very helpful and accommodating--despite this being a small hotel, there was always someone at the front desk to answer our questions! The room was small, but very cute and well-decorated, and the beds were comfortable. The elevator is tiny, so if you're claustrophobic, take the stairs! This was a nice quiet area, with no street noise, and we loved being within walking distance of non-touristy bistros and bakeries. My only issue was the aromatherapy used in the rooms (which is noted on a sign in the elevator)--I was not a fan of the smell that greeted us in the room when we checked in (but I'm not a fan of aromatherapy/room sprays in general), but opening the window was a quick fix! Otherwise, a fantastic stay and a really cute, quirky spot that I hope to return to!

My mother and I decided to stay at this hotel because of its location (10 minute walk to the Louvre), price point (being much cheaper than other hotels near the Louvre), and reading previous good reviews. The rooms are very cute, clean, updated, and not cramped. Our beds were very comfortable and the hotel maids were sweet. The bathroom was pretty big too with a large tub.

We arrived by Eurostar and were able to take the metro to Les Halles and make a short walk to Hotel Crayon. The hotel has a community vibe and feels much like a college co-op though much much cleaner and with better decor. :) All the staff are extremely kind and helpful. They are quick to help and look up whatever you need. Our last day we could not pull up our boarding passes for the plane and so we asked if they could be printer and they were more than happy to do this for us. There is a small kitchen in the lobby with a fridge, liquor bar, coffee machine and dining table. The lobby is a comfortable place where people often sit before or after going out. The rooms themself are small, but have all the necessities- bed- lights- safe- television. We were in room 604 which is painted red. I understand that the hotel is called hotel crayon and that all the rooms are painted different colors, but red is not a calming color and if I had a choice would not stay in a red room. This is a minor detail though. The bathroom is also small- but again with all needs met- shower,toilet,sink. The sink has faucets high above the sink and we would get water all over when washing hands. Other than that it was fine. Also the shower has two heads- one from the ceiling like a rain shower and one in typical place at the front of shower- this one in front is on a hose so it is moveable. You are able to turn both heads on or one or the other- it was nice to be able to turn the top head off if you did not want to get your hair wet. The brasserie right downstairs is excellent and we ate their a couple times because it was convenient and quite good. We also visited the boulangerie around the corner and that also was excellent. Hotel crayon is an excellent location being very close to the louvre and two metro stations- however it is not a largely tourist area and so it is relatively quiet and no tourist shops around! We loved it and I would definitely recommend it!
