Hotel Ambre
Ranked #1,353 of 1,804 Hotels in Paris
Reviewed 9 June 2014 via mobile

Stayed 5N (26-31 May) with my sister.

Easy to find the hotel, from Exit #1 from Tolbiac metro station, walk straight along the street to your right. The hotel is located across the road (to your left), just side by side to Ibis. There's a Carrefour just few steps down the road from the hotel or Monoprix along Place d'Italie (@ Exit #1, walk straight instead of turn right).

Room is clean & equipped with microwave oven, a mini fridge & a sink. Lighting in the bedroom area could be brighter. Bathroom is spacious (compared to those we stayed during our trip). Wifi signal tends to be unstable (we're at room #304) and sometimes we need to tap on Ibis' wifi.

When we're there, the weather was still quit cooling and the air condition in the building was not turn on. We slept with the windows opened. The only problem with opening the windows was that we're disturbed by the noise of motorcycle/cars/pedestrian passing by in the middle of the night and early morning.

The hotel is just 15~20mins walk to the Latin Quarter (or about 4 metro stations). Along Place d'Italie, there're nice selection of restaurants but I'd say those in Latin Quarter offer wider selections & better value for money.

Staff was generally friendly & helpful if you have questions.

Overall we enjoyed our stay and will recommend Hôtel Ambré to our friends.

Good location - only 20 mins direct on metro from Place D Italie to Trocadero (Eiffel Tour) and Gar Du Nord. Local area also nice with a few good restaurants.

Rooms - modern and big enough, wet room w/ powerful shower. General cleanliness ok except for a few marks on walls.

Breakfast - was good for free, fresh croissants, bread, cereal, coffee etc. all of which you can take to your room.

Staff - seem friendly and professional.

Value - only paid 60 euro a night on a weekday so can't fault that.

Overall - if your on a budget then this hotel certainly will meet all of your needs for a hassle free trip to Paris.

Very nice hotel,staff were friendly and helpful. Parking was underground but a little price to pay which was not bad. Room was clean and shower was awesome. Bed was comfortable after we had walked about 10 miles just visiting the surrounding. Easy access to the metro which is 5 mins walk only from the hotel. Loads of places to eat specially Chinese food.

I love Hotel Ambre! My friend and I stayed here in February 2014, our second hotel in Paris, and we loved it! My friend and I had stayed in Paris for 6 nights, travelled to Belgium and then returned to Paris for 5 more nights before heading home. Our first hotel, Hotel Batignolles, in the 17th arrondissement, was a disappointment, but Hotel Ambre was fantastic and we felt like we went out on a high note.

This hotel, I believe is only new, they haven't been open all that long, but they are doing a great job. The hotel is very modern, with lovely, contemporary rooms. We felt very comfortable staying here and we wished we had of discovered this hotel first before our other hotel, because if we had we would have spent all of our Paris nights here at Hotel Ambre.

The reception staff were very professional and friendly, overall excellent to deal with. When we first got to the hotel, the staff member was going to give us Room 101, but then decided to give us Room 404, which is located at the back of the hotel away from the street noise and traffic so that was really nice of her. Check in and out was a very smooth process and if we needed anything for the room, the staff were always attentive to our needs. Cleaning staff were excellent as well, very friendly and approachable and did a great job at keeping our hotel room clean and tidy.

The rooms were gorgeous, extremely comfortable and lovely to come home to after a long day's sightseeing. We also had our own little kitchenette with cooking stove, mini fridge and microwave which was great for us who were on a budget and couldn't afford to eat out every night, so with a little Carrefour supermarket located conveniently across the road, we made good use of the kitchen.

The bathroom was lovely as well, and a lot bigger than we expected. With a bath and a shower, wash basin and toilet, and a heated towl rack was a definite bonus!
Breakfast in the morning, which was included in the price, was a nice little continental breakfast and they had a good variety of things to eat from croissants to cereal. Coffee, tea and juice was on offer as well.

Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hotel Ambre. I am definitely going to recommend this hotel to anyone I know that is wanting to go to Paris and stay in a nice hotel and not have to spend a fortune. If I ever return to Paris, I will be staying at Hotel Ambre!

Room Tip: We stayed in room 404, which was at the back of the hotel and away from the noise of the traffic, so...
