Reviewed 24 July 2014

The Fred Hotel was a great option for me and my husband while visiting Paris (July 2014). We didn’t want to spend an absurd amount of money (as you would if you’re staying in the center of the city), but we didn’t want to end up in a dump either. The Fred Hotel turned out to be a perfect choice. The hotel is modern and cozy with all the conveniences you’d want. The metro is just a block away. The neighborhood is residential with mostly locals. The staff is very friendly and speaks perfect English. Our room faced a courtyard and was very quiet. All in all, a great hotel which I would recommend to anyone.

Room Tip: For the most quiet stay, request a courtyard facing room on 3rd floor or higher

The staff were very helpful and friendly, all knew some English which was typical of all the hotels we stayed at in Spain and France. The neighborhood is fine, away from all the hustle and bustle of main tourist areas. Maybe a little too far... There are a few good restaurants close by and one exceptional bistro next to Plaisance metro station. Nice little wine store just down the street and metro stations are fairly close. Its located somewhat south of the major sites so metro rides are a must. It's far from CDG airport, so expect a 70 Euro ride.
We slept three in our room and though it was tight quarters, we managed. Rooms are modern and well kept. The beds were comfy. Bathroom was big enough with bath and shower. Lobby is very nice and they offer a breakfast at an additional cost.

Would we stay here again, probably not but mostly because of the many choices and alternative locations. I think for the cost, comparable or nicer hotels can be found.

Room Tip: Free wifi is nearly non-existent in the rooms. We were on 2nd floor.

Our visit to the Fred Hotel was the last stop on our three week visit through Spain and France. The hotel is located in the Paris/14th arrondissement, a largely residential area. The location was ok, but was improved by good access to the Metro as well as by excellent restaurants and pâtisseries. As this was Paris, we were expecting higher lodging costs, but looking at the costs for our entire trip we found that the Fred Hotel was the most expensive (we stayed in various hotels, apartments and inns, from villages to very large cities).

Excellent staff!!! From our arrival to departure, everyone was very friendly and accommodating.

Regarding the size of the rooms. We knew that they were going to be small and found that with three people in the room (our choice) it was pretty tight quarters. The internet access was less than ideal. I often had to get right up next to the hallway door or sometimes even stand in the hallway to access the internet.

The staff and service was some of the best that we encountered in our three-week journey. Yes, the rooms are small and the internet was less than ideal, but if you are looking for a unique hotel, away from the usual tourist areas, the Fred Hotel is an option to consider.

We were fortunate to get a room as we booked only two days before arriving. We got a lovely room on the fifth floor for three. Great breakfast, nice helpful staff and reasonable price. They gave us a great recommendation for a lovely restaurant close by. We would definitely stay again.

Stayed at this hotel only one night but it was perfect first stop to rest and recover from a long flight. Room was clean with a little coffee machine which was great. There is a very small lift as well so no need to use stairs. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is in a good location and close to get to the Eiffel Tower. Breakfast was excellent.

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.
