“A charming hotel to make your stay in Paris easy.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2014

I found the hotel charming and the staff pleasant and very helpful. They went out of their way to assist me when I needed directions.The room was clean and welcoming. Best of all, the hotel is conveniently located next to the Porte Doree Metro station. You really can't ask for more.

Room Tip: Try and avoid the rooms immediately next to the elevator. If you're a light sleeper, the noise...

We had a really enjoyable stay in this very pretty hotel. The front staff were some of the friendliest I have encountered in any of the many hotels I have stayed in around the world. The room was not huge, but was a good size, well furnished and spotless. The hotel is located well for access to the Metro, which is the best way to travel around the city. We actually walked to Le Marais and from there along the seine one day and it didn't take much over an hour and allowed us to enjoy the beauty of the city in general, rather than just the downtown area. The hotel is surrounded by tree-lined boulevards and looks very Parisian. There are a number of restaurants around the hotel and in the information booklet in the room there was a rundown of the different dining options in the area with reviews. This a was a nice touch and something I wish more hotels took the time to do.

Some of the other reviews have mentioned the noise of the metro, while we did feel a rattle sometimes, I can't say it effected our sleep or we noticed it very much. We were however on the second floor.

If this hotel was right in the centre, I imagine it would cost a small fortune to the stay due to the design, character and quality of the hotel and represents a much better option than staying in lower quality chain hotel in the middle of the city, due to the easy of travelling on the metro.

Room Tip: We stayed at the back of the hotel and it was pretty quiet.

This hotel as the people working in it, is really kind, well served (metro station is far 10 meters from the hotel entrance) and very clean. The only "negative" note we can give is the very small sink in the bathroom.

A very good stay!

Highly recommended

We recently stayed at this hotel. It was very very nice. It's a quaint older bed and breakfast with lots of character. The location is steps away from the metro, so just hop on and you are in central Paris in about 15 minutes time. We found it very convenient. There's even a McDonalds right across the street if you need a quick breakfast. There's many cafes around as well. Loved it and would stay here again. We had a room on the main street and thought it might be noisy, but it wasn't. The area seems to quiet down at night. Recommend staying here.

We stayed here for 1 night , travelling home from Barcelona. I did book it because I thought it was only a short walk from Gare de Lyon. It took us over an hour to get there! I would definitely have got a taxi had I known. The hotel itself was clean, smallish rooms, but that's Paris!
Managed to get a lovely meal close by, late on the Sunday night.

The hotel is clean and beautiful with classical decoration. They are also friendly and have good service. Although there is no private parking space, it's not difficult to find one. It's closed to metro and there are several restaurants nearby.

Very helpful staff, lovely decoration. However, the cheapest rooms are really tiny compared to what i expected from the pictures I have seen.
You are just next to the Promenade plantee. A walk there is a lovely way to start a sunny day in Paris, absolutely gorgeous...
The breakfast is a delight, really worth the price!
