“Terrific! Must stay here.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014

We were visiting from Atlanta, GA with our two daughters, ages 11 and 14. We had two rooms, which were perfect for us. The hotel makes great use of the space, and we were comfortable and had everything we needed. The location is great in a true Parisian neighborhood with local shops and cafes. Easy metro access. Most important is the great staff. They were all extremely helpful and gracious, assisting us with everything, including recommendations on where to eat. We felt right at home. Also, we had a great happy hour on the patio out back. Just a great stay all the way around.

The hotel was great: breakfast (most of all!), the people and the service were high class. The room, however, was fairly small. But this was no big issue, as I traveled alone. The hotel itself is close to a lively quarter with lots of bars and small shops and to the metro.
I felt very comfortable and would return any time.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014

I stayed at the Fred Hotel for a long weekend. I was on a personal trip, so cost was a concern as well as being in a good location. The Fred Hotel is a fairly newly remodel Boutique hotel. The layout is modern, and the overall vibe/feel is good. The rooms are clean and felt well cared for.

However, I was surprised that my room was literally just barely big enough for the double bed and nothing else. I could lay on the bed and touch the walls (almost) on both sides of the room. By the time I put my bag into the room and unpacked a bit, there was nothing else. The shower was modern with a rainfall shower head, but the shower itself was so small that I couldn't really even enjoy.

They reminded me when asking that I had booked the "small, classic style room" and that's what I get. However, after looking through the pictures on their website, I notice they never really show that small room of course... Hard to know until you live it.

Still usable - just beware of that small room if you are claustrophobic!

The other issue was the wireless internet doesn't work at all unless you get right up next to the hallway door. I couldn't really use it, because it didn't work lying in the bed and there was no other option than to stand in the doorway!

The staff were pretty friendly and offered to move me to a larger room (for a small fee I'm sure) but they were sold out - so nothing they can do.

The location is decent - 2 blocks to the metro and plenty of restaurants, cafes and shops nearby.

Overall assessment - Good if you can book a larger room and don't need internet.

Room Tip: Don't pick the smallest room type unless you a little person without any luggage!

Dear Chris2087,

Thank you for having taken the time to share your impressions with us on Tripadvisor. We greatly appreciate any comments made by our guests and constantly strive to achieve the highest quality standards.

It was indeed a pleasure to read that you were overall satisfied with our services, our staff and enjoyed your stay with us.

What about the size of the rooms. It is true that some of our bedrooms and bathrooms may be described as ‘compact’, but they are designed that nothing is missing for your comfort. Our architect, who is also the designer of many famous hotels in Paris, worked very well to optimize the space of the rooms. Many of our guests prefer the intimate quality of these rooms with its high quality bedding, and the Italian style shower complete with exclusive toiletries. Other guests have found the higher category rooms and suites are more spacious. I really regret that we were fully booked and could not offer you another category of room.
I am however concerned by your feed-back regarding the internet issue. Please note that we are working on this issue to improve the wireless connection in the rooms.

We hope to see you once again at Fred Hotel.

Warm regards from Paris.

Loved this hotel. Searched on Trip Advisor for a great, affordable hotel. The rooms as others said are small but well designed and unique. The staff is amazing. Great little deck out back to have drinks in evening.

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.
