Hipotel Paris Voltaire
Ranked #1,687 of 1,804 Hotels in Paris
Reviewed 31 July 2013

We stayed at this hotel from June 19 to June 30, 2013 (11 nights). During this time, my mother and I were both severely bitten by bed bugs, and developed huge rashes, which our doctors have confirmed were caused by bed bugs. The hotel cleanliness was far below expectations: dirty hallways, sheets were not changed daily, and several nights we had to sleep without pillow covers. One night we changed our own sheets and found gray specks on the mattress, which after consulting our doctors, were clear signs of bed bugs’ fecal matter. We asked the hotel receptionist to move us to a different room on our 2nd to last night. In the second room on the 3rd floor, one of the mattresses was encased in plastic. This is a procedure done to kill existing bed bugs in a mattress. This strongly suggests that Hipotel Voltaire had a prior knowledge of a present bed bug infestation at the hotel and has not acted properly to resolve the problem. The infected mattress should be thrown out, not encased in plastic for the new guests to sleep on. It is unfortunate that the hotel knew of the bed bug problem yet has not properly addressed it and continues to endanger the public. We received no cooperation from the hotel management. No one ever responded to our complaints nor made any effort to apologize. Stay away at all costs.

I travelled with my 2 daughters (age 18 and 10) and the hotel was just what we were looking for. The room itself was very basic but clean, we paid a very low price for the 3 of us so couldn't really ask for more . The staff were very friendly and helpful, most spoke to us in english once they realised how poor our french was! The location was ideal, right next to metro stop, line 9 took us to many of the tourist attractions. Voltaire is a lovely area, plenty of shops, cafe's and restaurants. We preferred to eat here in the evening, a little less expensive than the tourist areas and the food was more traditional (we found the tourist areas to be mainly pizzerias). Although there is a McDonalds right next door if you can't find what you're looking for! It's quite a lively area at night but I felt very safe walking around with my girls. A great place to stay if you are on a budget and doing lots of sightseeing!

Room Tip: No air con, if you're going in summer like us expect it to be very hot!

If , like us you are looking for budget but good accomodation then this is perfect. Cheap & cheerfull. Big airy room, cleaned each day, lift for luggage, and a very clean well stocked bathroom. One metro change from charles de gaulle and disney. And the metro takes you straight from outside hotel to trocadero for eiffel tower. It was perfect for us! Fab location, near supermarket, mcdonalds and the restraunt below hotel does an amazing 3 course deal for less than 17 euros! Including free bread. I loved it here! Even spent a day in hotel due to illness. Its no different to any other budget hotel in europe i have stayed ( stairs, loudness fron street,dark) and is well worth the budget price.

Stayed here twice already, both times - for a week in January (in 2012 and 2013). Hotel location is absolutely perfect, 30 seconds walk from the metro station Voltaire, close enough to the main attractions of Paris. This is quiet area near the hotel, it is important if you come back late from the theater. There are also a lot of cafes and small inexpensive restaurants near the hotel.
Clean rooms with a TV, a shower and a toilet inside. Wi-Fi is provided for additional price. No breakfest. The hotel has a small lift, it is important if you have a heavy luggage. Friendly hotel staff.
If we consider all the advantages and some disadvantages of this hotel, it has more advantages, especially a small price. Certainly I will stay here again in my next visit to Paris.

I stayed in Voltaire Hotel in February 2012. I was with my friend but we got triple room so we had more place and towels :)
Our room was on 5th floor but there was small elevator (max for 2 people). Very good location - 10 steps to underground and McDonald's restaurant. Across the roundabout is supermarket Atac.
We have good view from the balcony but little noisy from the street in the night. Staff was very friendly. Room was cleaned and towels changed every day.
In my opinion for this price this was good choice!

They were renovating the room next to ours and it was really dirty, there were floods in the bathroom each time we had a shower, there were stains on the floor and the towels smelled but the location is great, 10 minutes walk from pere lachais an 15 min walk from place de la bastille and for 60€ per night can you ask for more?
