Le 123 Sebastopol - Astotel
Ranked #36 of 1,804 Hotels in Paris
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 May 2014

This hotel is a pearl of welcoming atmosphere, friendly staff, excellent breakfast and large, warm reception area. They earn their ranking in Tripadvisor by ensuring you feel at home, and that you do not miss anything in your stay in Paris.
Small, but clean and proper rooms. Size did not make a disadvantage.

We stayed in this hotel for five nights during our honeymoon. We arrived at 9:30am after a 13-hour flight not expecting to be able to check-in yet, but nope, they not only immediately let us into our room but also upgraded us to a Superior room. Score! :) Plus, they even offered us coffee and breakfast that morning even though our room rate didn't include breakfast.

The room itself was small, but it was never an issue because (a) there was plenty of natural light from very large windows; and (b) intelligent design (e.g. no closets but an open wardrobe).

Location is excellent. The hotel is a 3-minute walk from two metro stations. The more "obvious" one is the Reaumur-Sebastopol stop on Line 4, but we later figured out that the other stop (Saint Denis) on Lines 8 and 9 was also extremely helpful.

Service was excellent too. They offered restaurant suggestions, and arranged transportation to the train station when we left etc.

Incidentally, they also offer free drinks in the minibar.

The only nitpick (from my wife) was that there was no kettle in the room. My wife likes to drink tea and boiling water in the coffeemaker made water that smelled like coffee.

All in all, I wouldn't think twice to go back to this hotel.

Amazing hotel with friendly and accommodating staff. We stayed on the 6th floor in room 612. We woke with the sun on our small terrace and also had the sun shining on us around 5pm just in time for sundowners. Fab location, fab hotel can not rate this highly enough. Look forward to returning.

Room Tip: 6th Floor street side has the most sun and is still quiet.

We recently stayed here for two weeks. We mainly chose this hotel because TripAdvisor rated it number one. I wondered how they got this ranking. I now know they got it by being a great hotel and not by some manipulation of the system. I have no criticism of this hotel. I will stay here on my next visit to Paris. When I checked out, I mentioned that the only suggestion I had for improvement was to add some handholds to assist in getting out of the shower, which, by the way, was heavenly. One of my pet peeves about staying in hotels is that the showers often have limited water flow from a terrible shower head and are difficult to use. This was definitely not true for our room in this hotel. The clerk said thanks for the handhold suggestion, noting that the hotel had only been open one year and that they were still fine tuning some things, and she made a note of my suggestion. The hotel was quiet, very clean, convenient to the Metro, and well maintained. The WiFi was free and worked quite well in the room and was easy to use. The staff was very courteous and the breakfast staff became friendly with us since we stayed so long. The breakfast was good and the dining location had a nice ambiance. The hotel made our stay in this beautiful city over the top. I strongly recommend this hotel.

The service from all members of staff in this fairly new hotel (August last year) is outstanding from all members of the young enthusiastic team.
We were concerned initially when viewing over the internet, the room sizes but nothing to worry about, all were very adequate, clean and comfortable. Also quiet for Paris, which is rare.
It is very convenient for The Metro and not too far from Gare D' Norde and Gare D'Est.
The breakfast is fresh and served promptly and an afternoon tea service is available at no extra charge. The standard of which is exceptional.
Try to be specific with the address with taxi drivers as this is a new venue as far as they are concerned and the charge is about 15 Euros from Eurostar at Gare D Norde.

Room Tip: 6th Floor rooms are the best

Service from staff was amazing, they couldn't do enough for you. Hotel approx 20 min walk to notre dame so central to the main attractions. Rooms very quirky and hotel in general to a high standard. We didn't have breakfast as given the central location there are plenty choices for cafés. Afternoon coffee, drinks and snacks a great feature and gratefully enjoyed ! Rooms clean and added gifts a nice touch. Shower excellent and bed comfy. Room upgraded to superior but not very big or with good view so not sure what basic rooms are like but we were happy given the location. We booked well in advance and got a pretty good rate for central Paris. We will definately return if in Paris.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on higher floor facing the street for better view

We were very pleased with the hotel accommodations and very friendly staff. They helped us make arrangements for transportation from the airport to the hotel and many other things. The rooms were spacious and the breakfasts were excellent. They even had an on site bar which was very convenient. The hotel is close to the metro, restaurants and many Paris attractions. I would highly recommend this hotel.
