“Very good Service, Too small room”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2014

The service, the breakfast and the people are the best. Really polite personel and very good breakfast. But the room was too small. The price was ok if you compare it with other hotels in Paris. It is a fair choice this hotel, i have never been in Paris before but i worked a lot to find a good hotel and the prices were too high.

Room Tip: The size of the room and the size of the bathroom is really important.

Went for a honeymoon for a trip around Europe. This is one of the most decent hotel we got. Very clean, comfy, small but cute. Only problem is the receptionist isn't very welcoming if you don't speak French. It's a hotel come on, you should be patient and not rude to any guest who does not speak your language. Location is quite near to the metro. Around got a lot of Chinese restaurants and patisseries. Very convenient. I really recommend this hotel for people who looks for hygiene, smart price, and convenient location.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2014

We stayed here last weekend for a long weekend. We've been to Paris a few times before, but wanted to try a new area. Around the hotel is a lovely area with more of a residential feel to it. Lots of lovely bakeries, shops, cafes and restaurants nearby (the food at Bistrotters is outstanding!), and convenient for the metro. There's also a (pretty grim) Monoprix nearby which is handy for bottled water etc.

The hotel is well designed and they have managed to pack a lot into a small space. We were in a classic room, and it was incredibly small. Decor is modern and pleasant. Fixtures and fittings all lovely, although starting to show a little wear and tear. I liked that the Algotherm toiletries, and it was nice to have conditioner provided.

My review reflects value for money for the price we paid, and also a few niggles:
- shower curtain smelled quite bad and with the shower being so tight there was no way to avoid touching it
- we had to hand in our keys every time we went out, and collected them again to get back into the room. A bit of a pain, but I was mainly concerned that the system wasn't very secure. We were never asked for ID or even our names to access room keys. On one occasion I was given the wrong numbered room key. Keys were handed over no questions asked by front desk attendants we'd never seen before.
- leave a set of toiletries for each guest, instead of one set and a sign offering to bring more upon request. It's not a big problem but just annoying especially at the rates being charged

We stayed at the Fred for three nights and loved it. Very professional staff and a great room.
Helpful directions / suggestions from staff whenever we had any questions about getting around.

The Metro location at the corner was perfect for us - we got wherever we needed to go.

Nice friendly, safe feeling neighborhood, with everything within walking distance.

What's not to like?

We stayed here for 5 nights. The check in was very quick. The rooms were very spacious and neat. The lady at the reception Ms.Isaura was very friendly and helped us out with directions and maps for visiting Paris. Close to the metro station and easy to move to every place of tourist interest from there.Every staff of this hotel was very friendly. We could heat our food at the microwave the had in the hotel. Would definitely recommend this to everyone.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

On an impromptu visit to Paris with my wife I was fortunate to get 2 nights in The Fred Hotel on short notice.

The hotel is recently renovated with most things looking very new throughout the hotel. It was convenient to be able to get food and drink available downstairs in the kitchen at all hours which was useful when we needed late night champagne. Staff were friendly for the most part but we were a little disappointed that they were unable to provide us with recommendations for local eating establishments.

There is an elevator to all floors and the rooms very remarkably large for a Paris hotel. Décor of the rooms is very modern with lot of color and atmospheric lighting. The blackout curtains helped for jetlagged tourists too. We were located on the second floor and noted that when we turned off the Air Conditioning we could smell the smoke from people smoking on the patio outside the back of the hotel which wasn't great.

The bathrooms were modern although we aren't huge fans of the bath/shower combination (and yes we had the same problem as other reviewers about drenching the floor when taking a shower). The toiletries provided were of high quality and from labels which my wife approved (I know very little about these things).

While I was there I did endeavor to use the WIFI and noted that it was extremely weak in the hotel rooms and I did my internet work from the lobby where there was a very strong signal.

The location is fairly separate from the main tourist areas of Paris and it is necessary to catch a train and transfer to another train in order to get to the center of Paris. Travel time should be 20-30 minutes to get into areas like the Louvre using public transportation.
