“Basic, Value for Money, Conveniently Located Hotel”
Reviewed 11 May 2009

The Good: A value for money hotel. Hotel Printemps is conveniently located in the busy street of Rue du Commerce, with numerous restaurants & shops. It is situated within 3 minutes walking distance to the major interchange Metro station of Avenue La Motte-Piquet Grenelle. As busy as the outside streets might be, the interior of the hotel is quiet & cosy. The staffs are friendly too.
Because there are lots of people on the streets, it was pretty safe even when coming back at night to the hotel.
The rooms (we stayed in a Double room with attached WC & shower) are pretty basic with little designs. However, it is pretty decent and clean for the price (50 Euros).

The Not-So-Good stuff: The stairs and corridors are abit dim and narrow and is a problem for people with huge luggage, especially if you are staying on the higher floors.
Our Double room is the one next to the stairs and it was pretty noisy in the morning or at night when people walked about along the stairs and corridors, due to the creaking sounds of the wooden floors.
Because we wanted to go on a 2-days trip to Mont St Michel, we asked one of the lady staff (think she is the manager) whether we could leave our heavy luggages in the hotel just over the night since we are returning the next day. She was a bit reluctant and even told us that we should have traveled light (How can we travelled light when we are traveling in France for 21 days & came half the globe around with all the thick winter jackets & souvenirs to buy home for our family and friends?) In the end, she was willing to let us leave our luggages overnight and we are very grateful to her for that.

Overall, Hotel Printemps is a nice value-for-money hotel which is very convenient. We stayed there for a total of 8 nights.

we stayed here the first time a few years ago when we had nowhere booked and others were full, I knew it wasn't going to be anything special but god ...what a location, the room was quiet and clean just what you need when spending all day out and not too bothered about the aesthetics of the room. We have stayed numerous times since, not for the luxury loving but I could not advise anywhere better for the location, bars, restaurants the sights....

After being told that the accomadation we had paid for at the 3 Ducks backpackers was not booked and they had no record of us nor ere they willing to help us Finding this little gem was a gift from a greater power. For only slightly more than we paid to stay at a backpackers we had our own room with shower. Its definitly not a luxery stay but the people are friendly there is a metro station less than 300 meters away and a local supermarket. I would definitly sty here again - Mind the stairs they definitely have character

We looked at a lot of hotels in this price range and found this one to be in the best neighborhood. As you can imagine, a very inexpensive hotel in a nice neighborhood means it isn't very fancy. At all. However, for those of us on a tight budget who don't want to stay in the wild youth hostels it is a good option.

Positives: Good Location; near lots of bakeries, restaurants, a subway stop and the Eiffel Tower. It felt like a safe neighborhood.
The room was cleaned everyday and sheets changed.

Negatives: We got one small, thin hand towel so make sure you pack your own towels. The toilet was on our floor and was cleaned, but the shower was two floors down and not that clean. There was a sink and bidet in our room, but the bidet had one water temperature - scalding hot - which made it pretty useless. Everthing in the room was very old and falling apart but we didn't see any roaches or filth.
The staff was a little aloof, but helpful.
The stairs were super steep, sometimes tough to climb with luggage or after a long day of walking.

Again, don't take your girlfriend here for a romantic weekend in Paris, but for those who want a tolerable, very cheap room, it is a good bet.

I was for only two nights there. A horrible experience. Everything is dirty, no elevato and the staff is very impolite and even rude. Everything is fine till the moment you try ask for something or to criticise anything. Horrible experience!

my friend and i only stayed at this hotel for 1 night. we were going to a concert at the omnisports stadium (which is only a couple of stops on the metro) so just wanted somewhere to crash for the night. the room was small but clean. we had booked a twin room with a small shower/toliet ensuite. this hotel is ideal for a short stay or for people just looking for somewhere to sleep while they do the wonderful sights of Paris. (we were in room 1-on the ground floor next to the laundry room which was a bit busy in the morning!) overall a nice place to stay and easy to get into the centre of Paris.

This hotel is one of the two or three hotels in which I prefer to stay when I am in Paris. Its very good localization and its high ratio (Quality per Price) is part of its best- offs. The staff is also very helpful and often charming.
Nearby: a lot of shops, the Eiffel Tower, the Seine, ..
You can have a walk to "Champs Elysees" or to "Montparnasse".
When you will do your choice you must have be advised that the rooms are not very large and are without TV and that there is no elevator at all.
This is a very good hotel for students, travellers with a low budget ..
