Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 April 2013

A great budget hotel just on the edge of the city centre. Ideal for weekend breaks. Stylish rooms, modern decor and wooden floors. Continental breakfast is €9 extra but worth it if you don't want to waste time looking for somewhere to eat first thing.
All rooms have double glazing, ensuite facilities, TV and are extremely clean, they provide complimentary shower gel and shampoo too. The Hotel has a lift, luggage room, FREE WIFI and 24 hour reception.
Most of the attractions you want to visit are along the number 6 metro line (light green) which is 3 minutes from the hotel, Stop Picpus and the Eiffel Tower is about 30 mins away. The Eiffel Tower is a good place to start sightseeing. You can go up to the very top for €14.50 or half way up for €8.50. There is a queue and security checks but the lines move quickly. You can also get boat trips from here. They last an hour and are between €13 - €18. The €18 trip includes a glass of champagne. Work your way back to the hotel along the Seine stopping of at the Sacré Coeur de Montmartre, Musée d'Orsay and Notre Dame.
A book of 10 tickets for €15 means you can make 10 journeys on the Metro or Bus.
Eating around the Hotel is cheaper, there are several good restaurants nearby.
The Hotel is nearer to the Picpus stop on Line 6 but Nation (Line 2 blue) is a 5 minute walk over the roundabout.

Room Tip: Some rooms are near the lift, which may affect some people.

Thank you so much to spend the time to write a review for us and for your 5 stars. Our objective is above all that our hosts have a very good stay for a good value for money. As you explained, it is very easy to visit Paris from the hotel. The metro station Picpus is just in front of the hotel and Nation is a hub with 4 subway lines, the RER A and buses. It gives a direct access to all the Parisian major sites and to Disneyland Paris. For a first stay I shall also recommend the metro line n°1 (yellow) which is very fast and allows visiting numerous monuments.
Hoping to welcoming you again in Paris
Very cordially

It was mine and boyfriends 21st birthdays, so decided to take a romantic trip to Paris just after them both. We found this hotel after spending hours looking at many places and reading reviews.
I finally decided on this one, not only as it had good reviews but also because I loved the furniture and the fact that it didn't look like any other modern hotel. It made you feel like you were in Paris.

LOCATION:
It's location is perfect. Literally 30 seconds to the closest metro station (Picpus on line 6) which is only one stop away from Nation station which has many connections towards to the main sightseeing attractions.

ROOMS:
The rooms are small, however they are immaculate and very comfortable. The bed was comfy and the shower was lovely and powerful. They provided organic soaps, body washes and hair shampoos which I found very useful and they'd be refilled daily. There was also a powerful hair dryer in the bathroom.
Also found the free wifi useful to email home with photos and our daily activities.

BREAKFAST:
We did not try the breakfast in the hotel as on the first day we found a lovely bakery on the corner of the road which sold baguettes and pan au chocolates which we ate on the go.

I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who's thinking of a trip to Paris and will be staying again if I ever return. Thank you Hotel du Printemps for a lovely stay!

This hotel is a bit away from the center but the metro station is right next. The place is very beautiful and very picturesque. The breakfast room is nice and not expensive. The rooms have a good decoration, but many are small. For just wants to sleep comfortably, great. The hallways and elevator are lowercase and traffic is uncomfortable with many bags.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the front street (view) and the lower floors, not needing the lift.

We stayed at the hotel in March for three nights. We found the hotel suited our needs,it was clean and in a quiet part of Paris with good metro links. Our room was on the front which wasn't a problem as it was very quiet at night, only thing was our room was very small ( more like a single than double ) not much room at side of bed. Breakfast was typical, only hot food was boil it yourself eggs which took ages :( One problem at breakfast was there were only four tables, so as long as everyone doesn't go down at same time it was ok.
Staff were friendly and helpful. Looking at prices of other hotels in Paris, we thought it was good for the money.
We also found eating out was cheaper by the hotel. Italian next door was excellent.

Spent 5 days here last month and can't say enough good things about it. Hotel was very clean and comfortable. We stayed in a triple room and there was plenty of room for all of us to spread out. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. As noted by others it's in a great location with plenty of restaurants and shopping nearby and easy access to transport. We've stayed in a number of locations in Paris over the years but this will be our home away from home from now on!

My partner took me to Paris for my 21st Birthday and Valentines and the hotel was part of the surprise! was located down a quite residential street with cute little shops and overlooked peoples homes! felt so safe walking back to our hotel at different times at night.
The location was perfect, situated only minutes away from Nation Metro Station! which we used to take us everywhere! no problems there whatsoever.
We never had the breakfast option as there was plenty of places to eat in and around the hotel in the morning, and as we were always up and on the go it was easier for us to grab a bite to eat out! The rooms were spotless and a perfect size for a short stay, beds were very comfy and the shower was very powerful. Staff were friendly, and they always greet you with a smile and wish you a good day!

Would definitely recommend this hotel to any or our family and friends wishing to visit Paris, and wouldn't think twice booking here again.

My partner picked VERY well!

I returned here in January 2013 and I still love it. So easy for me to find. The staff are always friendly and the rooms are always really clean and neat. I had my wallet stolen in H&M Lafayette and rushed back to the hotel and because of the free wifi, was able to skype call all my banks and cancel my cards. The hotel also very kindly put through the payment of the room prior to check out on my card before I cancelled them.

Would definitely go back.
