“excellent location, clean and nice place for exploring Paris”
Reviewed 1 May 2014

excellent location close to the most important attractions in Paris, close to metro and museums, a relatively small room - but this standard (no place to store your suitcases, lack of iron), excellent service, the ability to book/buy ticket to the Muse D’Orsay without standing in a long line, definitely would recommend to stay at this hotel

Dear Elzbieta,

We are so glad you stayed with us and enjoyed yourselves in our establishment.
We do thank you for such a lovely review.

Our location is for sure very much appreciated by our entire guests.
It is very important to us to provide our guest Museum passes. It allows them to earn some time and then, they are free to visit more Paris.

Also, it is true that our rooms are commodious for Paris, we have different sizes (from 10m² to 40m²). All the staff of the Hôtel d’Orsay would be very pleased to suggest you different rooms for your next stay in Paris.

We really appreciate your praise, and hope we will have the opportunity to accomodate you again very soon.

Warm regards from all of us at the Hotel d’Orsay.
David Chevalier,

The location was great. Very convenient to visit Musée d'Orsay, l'Orangerie and Louvre. The facilities and bath products in the room were overall good except the hair dryer which wasn't powerful enough to dry my long hair. The reception opens 24 hours. Staffs were all very friendly and helpful. They voluntarily upgraded my room from the club room to the superior room and gradly keep my luggage till late on my checkout day.

Might be a bit expensive compared to the oldness of the building itself though, not very expensive compared to the other hotels in this region and I wanted to stay in a safe area as I visited Paris on my own. In that sense, I was quite contented with this hotel.

Again, great location! About 30 min to Eiffel Tower, 10 min walk to Louvre, 15 min Opera. However, If you experience some serious jetlag and can not fall asleep and want to watch some tv your out of luck. there is only 3 English channels and non of them are entertaining, BBC, CNN and Euro News. That's it. I was lucky I had something to watch on my ipad. Would it hurt them to invest into 1 English movie channel? Anyway, he hotel is very charming, and wifi is working everywhere and its free, although you have to log in every 5 min.

This was my third trip to Paris and the Hotel D'Orsay made it the best one yet! Location, Location!! Two blocks from the Musee D'Orsay and the bridge over the Seine. The bridge led to the Louvre and Tuileries. It is walking distance to so many places you will want to see, plus close to the Metro and RER. Many cafés and restaurants within walking distance and a wonderful boulangerie where we had croissants each day for breakfast. Staff was extremely helpful making reservations for us as well as giving us accurate directions.

The rooms are well appointed and extremely clean.

I highly recommend this hotel and will definitely stay there again when I return to Paris.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 52 because it had twin beds. Although it faced the street it was extremely quiet a...

I took my niece to Paris last week for her 16th birthday present. It was her first visit, and we stayed four nights at Hotel d'Orsay. It was perfect. The location was wonderful. The front desk staff were amazingly helpful from booking dinner reservations to providing directions, arranging airport transportation, and, generally making us feel welcome! Our room was on the fourth floor. It was just right for the two of us, and we had a nice balcony, with views down the street. I would definitely stay there again and recommend to friends and family!

Just returned from 4 nights at this hotel - and I have nothing bad to say about it. First of all, the location is perfect. It was our first time i Paris, and from the hotel we could walk to almost everywhere or take the Metro. The location is right to the river Seine and just cross the bridge and you are in the most lovely garden (Tuileries Garden). We had a classic room with a french balcony. The room was spacious enough for two adults and our luggage. The bathroom was seperated into two different rooms - on the one site the toilet and on the other site the shower. A little strange in our opinion. We had bathtub with shower, but we thought that it was a little cramped standing there. The water pressure was very low, but I don't know if that is normal in Paris.
The breakfast was very nice - in a small room with around 8 tables. The buffet does not look like much but it contained all what we needed. Fresh bread, ham, cheese and jam, egg, bacon and sausages, different kind og yoghurt, cereals, fresh fruit, crossaints and juice, so for the price of EUR 17 we think is it good value for money.
The room we had (on the 5th floor) was silent with a minimum of street noise. I can really recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to live central and in a quiet area.

Room Tip: Room on the 5th floor was very quiet.

This was the 4th/5th time that I have been to Hotel d'Orsay, this time for a girl-friend weekend. The atmosphere is as usual very inviting, I love the cosy, boutique-style lobby/reception area. Everyone is very friendly and helpful (when it comes to recommendations and restaurant reservations etc., or bringing a second set of towels etc.) The breakfast is great, the right choice and great quality, and the best start into a day of sighseeing or shopping. I will come again, and my friend, who experienced the hotel for the first time, also said this was an excellent choice.
