“Great hotel, excellent restaurant”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

Had a three day city break through BA and chose the hotel based on previous TripAdvisor reviews - and they were right.
We were on the top floor next to the lift, and there were no issues with noise at all from the hotel. The church bells opposite do peel incessantly, and we always knew the time, but the view from the tiny balcony across the roofs of Paris were worth it.
Only had dinner in the restaurant one night, which was a mistake as the food, service and value were fabulous - definitely eat there!

Room Tip: Liked the top floor

I was in Paris on business and my boyfriend came along with me. I had initially wanted to stay at the very trendy Hotel Costes, but so glad we didn't. As I usually do on my visits to Paris, we stopped in at Hotel Costes for a drink after doing some shopping on the St. Honore. The hostess was so rude, uppity and condescending that we actually left and didn't have a drink. Glad we didn't book a room there as this is probably indicative of the kind of treatment we would've received if we were hotel guests. In contrast, everything about Hotel de Nell was perfect. Especially the staff. They are all so friendly and welcoming and helpful. We had a wonderful stay and did not want to leave. We had breakfast everyday at the hotel which was delicious. But even better than the breakfast, was the dinner. The restaurant at the hotel was one of the best I've eaten at--and I'm a serious foodie. Simply amazing. I dare say it should have a michelin star. Before the meal, they serve a loaf of delicious country pate instead of the normal bread and butter. Omg. Heaven. A few dishes not to miss if you can have them: The risotto, the rice puddiing, and the souffle. We arrived on a Sunday afternoon and Sunday evening not all restaurants are open in Paris. The concierge recommended a little bistro called Richer within walking distance. We sat at the bar and had the most fantastic meal. You must go. It is the perfect casual neighborhood spot. Not touristy. Where the locals go. These are the types of places i love. Have the lapin (rabbit). It is amazing. For another meal we wanted to try this tiny but very popular restaurant called Frenchie (Chefs Anthony Bourdain and Eric Ripert had just dined there). Unfortunately, because it was last minute, we couldn't get a reservations. You must call and book a table here before your trip, if you want to get in. There are 2 seatings a night and they only have a handful of tables. It is on the Rue de Nil which is a little side street. While you wait, the restaurant has a wine bar with charcuterie and snacks just opposite the main restaurant.

Ok, enough about food... On to the hotel...

Our room was on the 1st (not ground, as this is Europe and ground floor is 0) and overlooked Rue St. Cecile. One of the best things about this hotel is that it is in a quiet street. We got upgraded to a Prestige room which was extremely large, by any standard, Paris or elsewhere. It was such a pleasant surprise to find that the bathroom floor was HEATED. Yay! I wasn't feeling well and I was tired from the day's travels and so I took a long, hot bath in the japanese soaking tub which has a teak bench so you can sit and relax. The king bed was extremely comfortable and had luxury linens, complete with a baby alpaca throw (awesome). It cannot be said enough that the Free Wifi was a super plus. I travel for business a lot and hate the exorbitant per day charges you pay at most hotels (especially the 5-star luxury ones). And then there are the hotels that offer "free" wifi but that is for the slow connection and you end up paying extra for the high-speed connection anyway. At Hotel de Nell the Wifi connection was completely free and FAST. Lastly, the hotel has a car and chauffeur that can be booked. We took it to dinner one night and our driver was so courteous. He even went inside with us to the restaurant to announce our arrival to the maitre'd and to make sure we were looked after. At 20Euro a trip, to anywhere in the Paris metro area, it is a good deal, if it is available. Call the front desk first to see. Another feature of the room is the ability to make a Nespresso coffee or a hot tea in the room. Great for when you just wake up and want a coffee but don't want to wait for room service or get dressed and go down to the breakfast room.

Cannot recommend this hotel enough. Simply wonderful. We will be back!

Room Tip: Get the rate with the breakfast included because you are going to want to start your day here everyd...

We recently stayed in this hotel . My wife and I stayed for 1 night in a deluxe room prior to a tour of the Western front . On return to Paris we stayed a further 5 nights in a Prestige room .Both rooms were modern and large by Paris standards . Double glazing ensured quietness and a restful night .

Room Tip: Prstige room is worth the extra money if staying for more than 1 night

The hotel was recommended to us - and when we viewed the wed site we agreed to try the hotel.
It is rare to get to a hotel and everything is like the Web Site!! - Hotel de NELL lives up to all the acclamation's we have heard - and we would like to add our own. Perfect hotel for being comfortable i Paris - close to the heart yet far enough away to have local attractions.
The room was spacious - storage perfect and the bath a delight.
the staff - all - gracious at all times.
The food served for breakfast was ideal - fabulous bread!!!
Dinner menu and quality - superb.
What more can be said of a hotel?? Highly recommended, and we will use again.

Room Tip: We chose superior for the extra space, and Japanese bath.

Stayed at Hotel de Nell the first weekend in May. We landed in Paris early in the morning and because of the bags we headed straight to the hotel in hope they would keep them for us until our room was ready, but to our surprise the room was already available (this was at about 10am) AND they had upgraded us from a Deluxe to a Prestige room which was just great. Now I am not easily pleased when it comes to hotel bedrooms (I detest anything old, tatty, and in the slightest bit run down) and I spent ages researching the best place to stay that would not cost an arm and a leg (see the Bristol,Le Maurice etc) but still be nice and clean and I can safely say I was not disappointed. The room was very large (by Paris standards...or London infact) , there was a balcony running the entire length of the room which made it nice and airy and all the furnishings were well kept and looked fairly new. The bathroom with the Japanese bath was excellent and very modern and so was the rainfall Italian shower. Separate toilet room too. Only downside was that on our second day there was a bad smell of stagnant water coming out of the sink/bath area which was unpleasant but then again we were out most of the day so it didn't bother me excessively but I did mean to mention to reception as I'm sure it should be fixed but forgot.also meant to ask for some moisturising lotion which was not within the toiletries provided (but a body scrub was!) The free wifi was also a bonus. Bed was good and clean. The lounge is small but well designed and cozy and we also dined in the restaurant one of the nights and the food was very good. The actual restaurant is fairly small but the fixed price menu is very good value.Good location (we walked to the centre even if it is a long walk!) and even better for getting to Gare du Nord (we decided to get the train back to the airport as taxis are a bit of a gamble on prices 50-100€ ) only took us 10-15min walk from the hotel. The staff was very friendly and pleasant and they kept the bags for us the day we left after we had checked out. All in all Very Good and we shall be definitely returning.

Stayed at Hotel de Nell last weekend for my girlfriends birthday. From start to finish our stay was faultless. Room was ready as soon as we got to the hotel from Gare du Nord at 11, and we were upgraded from a Classic to a Prestige room! Lovely spacious room with an extremely comfortable bed. We ate in the restaurant on our first night and the food was outstanding. A complimentary bottle of Minuty Rose was appreciated greatly and the price for dinner was extremely reasonable.

Will be coming back here on my next trip to Paris without a doubt!

Room Tip: Must try a room with a Japanese bath.

Room was just beautiful - modern, stylish, sharp but very comfortable. Bathroom was just as stylish with a great shower (a must in any hotel!).

Front desk staff were all charming and helpful. Restaurant staff slightly less so - we wanted to borrow a knife for a typically touristy afternoon of bread, cheese and wine in a park. We did this twice and both times the staff looked agast that we'd want to do such a thing. Both times they took our room number and names and generally made us wonder if we were really breaking the rules! It's fair to say that at 200 quid a night even if I did pinch a knife they'd probably stretch to a replacement!

Location is very good. Few lovely restaurants very locally. Easy access to the metro. We walked to the Louvre in about 30 mins one afternoon so pretty central.

As usual - nae cheap but worth it for a splurge.

Room Tip: We took a deluxe room overlooking the road - nice, big windows keep it bright. The view isn't a...
