Le 123 Sebastopol - Astotel
Ranked #40 of 1,802 Hotels in Paris
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 18 August 2014

I booked this hotel purely off reviews on Trip Advisor and I was not disappointed. Five things this place had that I have not found at hotels of same price bracket in Europe:
1) complimentary mini-bar
2) complimentary afternoon tea buffet
3) air-conditioning
4) free movies
5) evening turndown service

Plus bed was massive and very comfortable, really good breakfast buffet, clean and modern interior, really good location, bar open until late, efficient staff - felt like we were in good hands.

A very warm welcome awaits you at Le 123 Sepbastopol. The quirky interior decorating is great and although easy to find the area around the hotel is not that fabulous (prostitutes around the corner, large amounts of homeless people in the area). HOWEVER, the staff here are so helpful and friendly. We arrived with two tired children who were very excited to see the cinema in the basement. Nobody else was around but the children were super keen to watch a movie so the lovely Cedric at reception happily put a movie of their choice on the big screen - they were delighted.

Of course the rooms are small but they are clean, functional and all decorated to a very high standard. The beds are very comfortable as well. We emailed ahead asking for rooms in a quiet location and we were given exactly that. Our rooms overlooked the inner courtyard which was perfect. Zero traffic noise or disturbance of any kind. If you were travelling as a family you would need a larger suite as the standard rooms really do only accommodate two people, you could not get a roll away bed in the room.

The in room entertainment is great with a large selection of movies. The only drawback is that they have not started in-room dining, however they have a large selection of restaurants that will deliver food to the hotel for you. Not ideal, but with two tired children who didn't want to go out for dinner it was the perfect solution for us.

The free Wi-Fi is pretty good and very reliable.

I'd recommend the hotel but be aware of the surroundings - I probably wouldn't recommend you walk around the area at night (front desk staff will call you a taxi so you don't have to go in search of one)

Room Tip: email the hotel directly in advance of your arrival for any requirements e.g. room in a quiet locati...

If you are visiting Paris, look no further than here, this cannot be beaten
The position is good, metro within 3 minutes
The staff at reception and at breakfast are clearly happy in their work, smiling faces and nothing too much trouble
The management too are on top of their game, a little letter asking if we are enjoying our stay, a little pack of goodies left in the room from time to time
The room was light airy and spotless and film theme quirky, air con. is a plus too.
The breakfast buffet choice is awesome, if you cannot find something to suit your taste here, then just give up eating !!!!
Cannot recommend too highly

We stayed here in May 2014. Very easy to get to from the Eurostar as it was a few stops down on the Metro and on a quieter street slightly away from the main tourist areas. We asked for a room at the back which was very quiet. The room was a bit on the small side but as we were out and about sight-seeing it did not cause us any issues. The check was efficient and the staff very friendly and helpful. The hotel served breakfast which we did not have as it was extra. It also appeared not to have a restaurant but that did not cause us a problem as we already planned to eat out whilst we were there.

Dear AndrewJH16,

First of all, thank very much for coming back on your experience and taking the time to write this nice review about it, 3 months after your stay with us!

Indeed we don't have any restaurant, however may I kindly inform you that, as you already know it, we serve breakfast, but also have a bar available to our customers, and offer a complimentary soft drink open-bar every afternoon to please them once back from a day tour in Paris.

We hope to see you again in our hotel to take advantage of all our services!
Thank you one more time for this nice comment.

Sincerely,

We stayed with two of our daughters, both in their twenties, to celebrate the eldest's graduation. We found the hotel because it was top of Tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. This is a beautiful small hotel. Rooms are spotlessly clean and imaginatively decorated. My husband and I stayed in a top floor room with a small terrace. The bathroom was a reasonable size. Our daughters shared a smaller room on the floor below. Thank goodness for the air conditioning because Paris was unbearably hot for our trip!
A little out of the way for the main attractions, but an easy walk to the Pompidou Centre and the metro is right outside.
The main thing which sets this hotel apart is the caring staff. Very helpful in all ways you would expect, but we were particularly impressed on our final day. I was not feeling well, and couldn't join the rest of the family walking round Paris. We asked for a late check out, or maybe we could pay for a room for the day? Instead we were allowed a room until 4pm at no charge, which was incredibly generous and so helpful. Thank you!
I would not hesitate to recommend a stay here.

Room Tip: Top floor rooms with a terrace are lovely but all the rooms are quirky, clean and beautiful

I stayed here with my Husband and four 'children' (15-23 years) as a 25th wedding anniversary treat. The staff are friendly and welcoming without being overbearing, the film theme is tasteful and not overdone. The rooms are a good size, comfortable and clean with great bathrooms and very efficient air conditioning. We opted to eat breakfast in the hotel as the weather was poor and we weren't disappointed by the quality or the price. The location is good ; it is impossible to be central for everything in a big city. We found plenty of decent places to eat and drink in the area. I can't fault this hotel and we will be back if we are lucky enough to visit Paris again.
