“Bons Enfants Hotel”
Reviewed 6 July 2013

Great location - Close to the Lourve, Boulanger, transport, other tourist attractions and shops! I was on the 2nd floor - my room was a little small (expected that) but the bathroom was a good size and they had a safe in the room! It was generally clean & the reception staff were friendly and helpful! I wasn't going to pay 11 Euro for breakfast - just as easy to go for a walk and explore what's around!!!!! I was a bit annoyed with the cleaning staff entering my room when the Do Not Disturb sign was present - it meant exactly that - especially whilst travelling overseas and about to head off again on an overseas flight!

I stayed here for one night on a trip over by Eurostar. Excellent location near the metro, friendly staff and a clean if small room on the 5th floor (not the family room, the only other room on this floor). We travelled light and this was fine for us, but you may want to check with the hotel to ensure you do not end up on the 5th floor with heavy bags - the winding staircase from the 4th floor could prove difficult.

Liked the hotel, nice feel and clean as you'd expect, and thank goodness tea and coffee facilities in the room after a long day exploring. The top floor room was quiet and had a large roof window which let in plenty of light in the morning, though you could feel the rumble of the metro every now and then.

I really enjoyed this hotel. We only stayed for 2 nights and yes the room was tiny (but the bathroom was big) but we didn't really spend that much time in the room. The location could not be beat, a 2 minute walk to the Richelieu entrance of the Louvre, several metro stops nearby, cafes just down the block.

The staff was amazing, particularly the gentleman working the front desk (Octavius I think). I had had my entire purse stolen the day before in Barcelona and was unable to cancel any of my credit cards before getting on the train to Paris. We showed up at 10am and he let me use the lobby phone for almost an hour, called the US Consulate for me, let us regroup in the lobby and was just generally polite and helpful all the way around. Definitely made up for the rudeness and unhelpfulness I experienced in Barcelona.

Room Tip: pros: location, staff and bathroom. cons: tiny rooms, hallways and elevator

Having stayed in Paris a few times before and never in spring/summer I thought the price for what you get with this hotel is rather expensive. Their rate for a standard room of 209 Euros per night however you can get it cheaper on booking.com and thank god we did. I was expecting a chic boutique hotel and it was just a dolled up Hostel. Yes the location is good and that’s the best I can say about the Hotel. The photos on their website are not what you actually get! The bed is really uncomfortable and small with a large bed cover that clearly never gets washed as it smells and was very dirty. The room is small as are the corridors and lift. Upon arriving at the Hotel on check-in I felt the receptionist was a bit moody and didn’t pay much attention to us, it was a maze through corridors to get to our room (307) and I tripped very badly on a vacuum pipe that the maid had left lying on the corridor floor - don’t think they take health and safety very seriously in Paris! As mentioned before I really didn’t know what to expect for my money at this time of year but I certainly expected better than this and would advise that you look elsewhere.

Room Tip: If you insist on staying here call or email ahead and ask for a big room, their rooms vary in sizes...

We stayed here three nights with another couple. Their room was larger than ours and ours was very small. Traveling for one month so had to crawl over luggage in bathroom. Staff at the desk was very helpfpul with directions and gettings taxis. Didn't eat breakfast--thought it a little expensive at 11 euros. Location is the best thing about the hotel. 2 blocks from the Louvre and many cafes and restaurants close by. Room had a small refrig and a free bottle of "welcome" wine. We had cheese (ours) and wine in the lobby the first night. Free internet!

Room was small and a little dark and conversations in the room next door were clearly audible. Having said that, this is a great option if you are looking for a reasonably priced hotel for one or two nights in a great location. It is only somewhere to sleep afterall and repleanish your reserves for the next day's sightseeing. Special mention to the desk staff who were pleasant, good humoured and very helpful. What's not to like?
