“Good stay but nothing special”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2014

The hotel was clean, the staff was nice, the location was ok but the room was very small and the décor (which I usually don't care too much about) left a lot to be desired. It didn't feel Parisian and it missed the mark at being trendy. It was more like what I imagine motel chic to look like. The staff was very friendly. We were minutes walking from Notre Dame and about 10-15 minutes by cab to the Eifel Tower and the more iconic/touristy part of town. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We did have to evacuate our room a few times during our short stay for false fire alarms. We didn't like having to leave our keys at the front desk every time we left. It wasn't terrible but I think we could have done much better. We stayed at some great hotels during our European vacation, this is probably the only one we didn't really enjoy too much.

The hotel location is very central, 5 minutes from Notre Dame in St Germain. Reza from the night shift is so helpful, nice and friendly. The hotel décor is super stylish, rooms are small but very clean and comfortable. I will definitely be going back when I'm next in Paris. I highly recommend it!

Well located, with comfortable modern facilities. We were kindly upgraded to a larger room as we were staying there for our honeymoon. Would be more than happy to stay there again on our next Paris trip.

Been to Paris 5 times in 2013. I stayed in Hotel Atmospheres in December 2013 for 4 nights. I would stay here again for the hotel facilities and location. The area is also very safe to walk around at night. Below are more details of pros and cons.

Pros:
1. Fouzia was very helpful in getting me a room. She was very understanding and accomodating when I ask to change rooms (twice). I finaly picked the room in the main building.
2. Oliver (works in the evenings) was friendly and helpful in providing advice on restaurants, directions and nightlife.
3. Hotel offers tea and coffee during the evening (around 6PM).
4. Tea/coffee making facilities in the bedroom is also a plus.
5. Gym and water massage bed available to guests for 20 minutes. I love the water massage bed!
6. Very convenient to Metro (2 blocks).
7. Small business area with 2 computers and free printing.
8. Shower has great pressure!

Cons:
1. Small room but comparable to the other Paris hotels.
2. Standard room has shower, no tub.
3. Decor in the room in the main building is questionable. It has a pimpy feel due to the dark walls and the bright red tiles in the shower. Painting on the wall is more S&M. Not romantic, in my opinion.
4. Free wifi performance is not consistent.

Room Tip: Ask to change your room if you are unhappy. Receptionist is very accomodating!

Yep, the room was the typical small European type, but very comfortable, and even though we faced the street, it was quiet. Well appointed with rather dark decor, but that just made for a good night's sleep. The best feature is the location, about two blocks across the river from Notre Dame, and near lots of good restaurants. Easy walk to the Orsay and the Louvre....we even walked to Rue Cler. We'd stay here agin, just for the location in the 5th arrondissement.

Room Tip: Try for a larger room, ours was very small, and limited room for luggage.

We stayed in a quad room at the Hotel Atmospheres. It has a king size bed on the second floor which was actually a second enclosed room with a separate shower and toilet. There was no window open to the outside.

The downstairs has a fold out bed/couch and a single shower/toilet. It also has a small two seat patio opened to the equally small courtyard.

It’s a modern style space with several amenities. The bath was clean and stylish. It also includes a sauna. The metro stop is 1.5 blocks away with several restaurants in between.

The staff was very friendly and helpful.

Overall, we were very pleased with the stay.

Room Tip: Quad room is a good size for Paris and sleeps 4 in 2 beds.

The location of this hotel is great in St-Germain des prés on des écoles street. It is close to Notre-Dame church and a tone of restaurants. It is a really nice modern hotel. The room that we were in was not that big, but the beds were great !! Even the added bed was comfortable. There was air conditioning in the rooms and we were very lucky to get an inside court room (quiet !!). The bathroom was also small, but with a nice modern showerThe breakfast room was so pretty and cool. You could choose for a buffet breakfast or pastries. The buffet was not that big, but nice.

We went to many hotels in Paris, but this one is going to be our new home for sure. Everything is perfect !!

Room Tip: Request a room with a garden view or inside court to be sure to have a quiet room even though the st...
