“Location, service, bargain”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014

You can hardly find a better location on Rive droite: within 10 min of relaxed walk from Place Vendome, Champs Elysees, Musee d'Orsay, Place de la Concorde, and Opera. Very quiet street. The only problem is noisy garbage collectors early in the morning (that is, if you sleep with open windows). The breakfast is modest, but a reasonable deal in this extremely expensive area. There are several small family restaurant in the same block, I'd say each of them deserves a visit. As always, plan your meals ahead: they are closed from 2 to 7 and most of them - on Sundays and holidays. The hotel has unusual decor of eclectic wallpapers, from Eastern rugs to ancient map of Iceland in our room. The staff is friendly and helpful. Overall, it was a real bargain.

Room Tip: Probably, higher floors would be better.

Dear Guest,

We are very happy to read this nice review and we would like to thank you for having posted it on TripAdvisor! We are glad that the special design of your room situated at the 2nd floor “ANTARCTICA” really pleased you. All the hotel is minutely renovated to the smallest details to provide you a virtual trip on the continent imagined by the French designer Christian Lacroix.
As you mentioned, you can not have a better location, in the 1st district of Paris and next to the main attractions. Indeed you have a lot of choices to dinner or lunch in some cosy and nice restaurants like Ferdi, l’Ardoise, da Rosa or Le Soufflé… The reception team is delighted to book a table for you anytime. It is a French tradition that gourmet restaurants are open only at certain times because all meals are taken at fixed hours, the lunch between 12-2pm and dinner after 7pm. But you can also find nice brasseries open all day long.

We hope to see you again and explore a different continent.
Warm regards,
Andreea

My wife and i just returned from a week in Paris at the Hotel du Continent. We've been to Paris numerous times and stayed in several popular areas but Hotel du Continent is absolutely the best. The location, the room and the staff were all perfect. The desk personnel made us feel really welcome and special. They became friends and truly cared as if we were family.

I've traveled extensively and there is not a single recommendation I have for how the hotel could be improved. We love Paris and will stay here on all future visits.

Room Tip: we had a room with a street view and loved it.

We stayed at Hotel du Continent for 4 nights. Our room was very well decorated and everything appeared to be recently renovated. The room and bathroom were decently sized and impeccably clean. The wifi worked well. TV included a few English language news channels (BBC, CNN).

Location is superb and an excellent base for exploring paris. There are several restaurants within one or two blocks.

We had breakfast a couple of times at the hotel. Price is reasonable at 10 euros per person. The isn't much selection - bread and croissants, plain yoghurt, coffee/tea and juice.

Staff are very friendly.

In terms of things that could be improved:

Our room was on the second floor facing south/west. The afternoon sun made our room very hot, even with the drapes closed. There did not appear to be any air conditioning (or very poor air conditioning). The room would not cool down, which interfered with a decent sleep. If we opened the windows there would be noise from the streets.

The shower wand does not have a shower head holder.

Overall, I would definitely stay again in cooler months. I might look elsewhere in the summer because of the lack of air conditioning.

I enjoyed every part of my stay at the Hotel du Continent. I stayed there for two weeks and was consistently impressed during my entire stay there. The ladies and gentlemen at the front desk were extremely courteous, friendly and helpful. The breakfast was wonderful and was served by two very nice young ladies. My room and bathroom were very clean and neat and comfortable and well maintained throughout my entire stay. The location was perfect. The wifi worked very well. The Hotel du Continent and everyone who works there made me feel very comfortable and welcomed during my entire visit to Paris. Thank you all.

Just stayed at this hotel from may1st- May 6th 2014. The location was great, I would give that a 5. On the other side, the entire room smelt like mold because the shower was extremely moldy. I had to keep my bathroom door shut at all times because it would wake me up at night. Also, everything morning at 8am the cleaning lady would wake up the entire floor. I don't mean just little noises, enough to make my bed shake.

Dear Kristine,

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience on Tripadvisor!
We are very sorry that our hotel did not reach your expectations, because is the first time having this type of complain … the hotel is brand new, entirely renovated in December 2013 and remodeled by Christian Lacroix.
Regarding the noise problem, we would like to mention that our cleaning service starts at 9am, so it is surprising how you were disturbed by the chamber maid at 8am..
We hope you had a nice trip overall!

Best regards,
Andreea

We stayed at this hotel on Easter Monday and couldn't have been happier. The location was perfectly located -- Tuileries Gardens, Louvre, Champs Elysees, metro...

What really impressed me was the service. The concerige was incredibly friendly and helpful. They remembered my mom and I by name when we came/left and gave great recommendations. What impressed me the most was I left stamped post cards in the room (by accident) and they actually mailed them for me without me calling to ask!

The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom - especially the shower were heavenly. Reasonable rates as well. I'd def. recommend anyone to stay here.

Room Tip: Get the junior suite for the extra space. It was only 10 euro more than the standard room

We stayed in this hotel in April and had a wonderful time.The hotel's location could not be better.It's right beside the garden tuileries,and in the centre of everything and just a short walk to the Louvre etc,There is a metro stop nearby and we found this really easy to use, The hotel was lovely and comfortable, our bedroom was spotless,warm and modern with a big bed with crisp white bed linen, big fluffy bath sheets, bathrobes and slippers. we always had plenty of hot water with both a bath tub and shower. hotel was very quiet at night so had no problems having a good nights sleep for the three nights we were there,All the staff we met were very friendly, helpful and welcoming. we had an early flight so had requested and early check-in if possible, this was not a problem when we arrived and were greeted with a smile. We would recommend this hotel without a doubt and would stay again the next time we are in Paris..
