“Great room, friendly staff, close to metro”
Reviewed 25 January 2014

Had a great stay. Room was wheelchair accessible, so there was a ton of space. Super clean, great smelling bath products. Nice to have coffee/tea available. Front desk was really friendly and helpful. So close to metro, and fun to see the Eiffel Tower coming and going from the hotel. Very good home base.

Me and my husband spent 3 nights at Val Girard and it really is a lovely little hotel. We had a standard room (very clean) that had a view of the Eiffel Tower which was amazing. The hotel is very close to the Metro (just a couple of blocks away) very easy to get to all of the attractions in Paris.

The only thing that was a little disappointing was the fact that our fridge didnt work in the room and when we told reception he just said "we will see what happens tomorrow" they never came to check the fridge we put our drinks on the balcony and it was cold enough to cool them a little bit - not ideal but it was ok!

Had breakfast once during our stay which was lovely.

Overall the hotel is lovely for a few nights stay in Paris :-)

We had booked a triple room and stayed in Nov 2013. Our room was clean, spacious and comfortable. It was on the ground floor since my mom is on a wheelchair. The room is facing the courtyard and also the only room that has access into the courtyard which is nice. Wifi works great in the room.The hotel interior and the rooms seems to be newly renovated. The lobby is nicely decorated and has that homey feeling. Front Desk staff were friendly and helpful.

Location is easily walkable to the Eiffel tower and also very close to Valgirard metro station.
There are plenty of restaurants, cafes, bakeries and grocery stores around the neighborhood.

Overall we had a wonderful stay!

We arrived in Paris by train and began our search for a room without reservations. Used Tripadvisor and narrowed the search to this hotel. It was very convenient to the subway system and within walking distance to the Eiffel tower. The room was small but adequate and the bathroom needed some attention but overall a great hotel. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. There are great street cafes on nearly every corner. The walk to the tower was a little long but there was much to explore along the way. We had a great street view of the tower and walked there twice. Paris is a great city, plenty to do and see and not enough hours in the day to take it all in. We only had 2 nights in this great city and enjoyed our stay in this hotel.

We stayed for a week in this hotel, and the service and accommodations were luxurious. The breakfast is worth every penny, and the service and staff are outstanding.
This hotel is very close to the metro, and we had easy access to transportation to see all the sights of Paris.
VERY IMPORTANT- this hotel is close to local grocery stores, small restaurants and cafes, and even a creperie, all of which made it easy to grab a quick bite (and save some money by not eating every meal at an expensive restaurant).
Location, facilities, personnel, all well above our expectations. Phenomenal!

Room Tip: We had two rooms, both on 3rd floor. They were equally nice

My fiancee and I stayed here for 4 nights in November. This hotel is in a good location, 2mins walk to the nearest Metro station in fact you can see the Eiffel Tower from the hotel. We had an enjoyable stay, the room size was perfect with all the mod cons, international TV stations, mini bar, WiFi and Telephone.

We opted out of Breakfast during our stay as we're not breakfast eaters and instead walked to the bakery on the corner and got freshly made croissants and eat whilst walking to the Metro station to kick start our day.

The only negative point would be that we were told the lift was out of service when we arrived, which is no issue for us as we were on the first floor. However, we weren't told that the builders would be in everyday and start hammering away!

Having stayed in Paris for 5 days, we did all the attractions and must visit places. Should we be back, we'll definitely be staying here again.

Dear Sir,
Thank you for staying at Val Girard hotel and leaving such a positive feedback. It’s true pleasure for us to read that you did enjoy time spent with us and would have no hesitation about staying at Val Girard again. Please accept our special thanks for your kind comments regarding the room amenities, services and location at our property. Such reviews as yours give us inspiration to bring the quality of service to yet even higher standards.

However, we sincerely apologize for the inconveniences that you have experienced during your stay. Please allow me to give my input on all the points in your review. The situation due to the elevator failure is very rare for us and happened due to temporary technical issues in our system. We have a technical service for the elevator and in case of any problems they solve it in 1 or 2 hours after issue, and you arrived just few minutes right after the failure.

Regarding your comments about the builders that you crossed, we are sincerely sorry to not inform you that our hotel was in refurbishment works. In fact there were several rooms on the higher floor under the refurbishment works. In this matter we provided you the best possible room on the first floor to avoid any inconvenience. These works will take the part to embelish rooms and to improve your future comfort. We will defiantly make an effort to provide one of our renovated room for your next visit for which you may contact us directly.

Our desire at Val Girard is to make your stay as comfortable as possible. It will be a true honor for us to host your again on your next visit to Paris

Sincerely yours,
Ksenia Guilleux

This hotel offers true value for money! It is located in walking distance from the Eiffel Tower in a quite area. Metro nearby, friendly staff, good breakfast with fresh products. The rooms are not big but very clean and I suspect recently renovated, excluding the bathroom which could do with a scaling up.
