“quiet and cool oasis in steamy Paris”
Reviewed 28 July 2013

We visited Paris at temperatures up to 36 Celsius. Upfront you then worry about a good night sleep. Not necessary! The room had excellent state of the art air-conditioning, adjustable to the temperature of your choice. And not of the kind that produces a lot of noise. The room, situated on the backside of the hotel, was very quiet. Beds were good, room well-kept clean, good showers. Wifi ans a few bottles of water are complimentary. Breakfast is extra at €12,- but worth the money: un-French in variety of fruit, cereals, pastry, drinks etc. Staff was very helpful.
The metro-station is just outside the hotel, main train stations and Paris-centre are within 20 minutes. We felt safe in this quarter. On the other side of the street (' Au Metro') you find a good restaurant.

I and my wife had stayed there for 5 days, and every morning there were fresh breakfast hot coffee and cold juice and of course good service.
The room was big enough for us when we were using it for baths and sleeping, and the service is excellent.
The Metro station Dumnesnil is only 1 minute away and has 2 lines, which is very good.
We have used this hotel 2 times already and will use it again, next time we are in Paris.

My third review of this hotel, we stay there as we just across the road from a flat that my family use. As usual, staff very friendly and welcoming, the rooms are on the smaller side, but more than o.k. , with tea and coffee making facilities and a small fridge and a few complimentary bottles of water. Wi Fi and a more than sufficient breakfast
Very good location as Metro is only 2 minutes walk away, and central Paris about 20 minutes on the Metro. There are several good restaurants with easy walking distance, especially the one Bistro just outside the Metro....
Can not think of any down sides to this hotel....book up and enjoy Paris...

Room Tip: We had a room facing the road, but the double glazing more than cuts out any noise. Although we were...

As a single my double bedded room was small but good. A large suitcase would have been a real issue. Comfortable bed in a quiet room and curtains that stopped light gave good sleeping. Certainly the best shower in a hotel in years of travelling and you didn't need to put your glasses on to see how to use it. Hot water stayed hot. The quiet stayed quiet. The aircon works.
Breakfast buffet style and generous.
Am a little in love with Geraldine the receptionist. Use the list of local restaurants the hotel give.
Eating in the La Petit Troo just down the road is great.
The hotel is about 30 meters from the Metro which gives much better access to all Paris than the map suggests. As a three star small hotel I recommend you stay here.

Room Tip: If you have big luggage tell the hotel in advance so you get an appropriate sized room.

Stayed for one night here. It is somewhat out of the way, but not too far. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was clean, comfortable and quiet (facing the courtyard, but windows seemed good in general). The internet connection is good, and the breakfast reasonable (included in my rate).

Dear Customer,
Thank you for taking the time to share your experience at the Grand Hotel Dore. Your evaluation helps us to improve our work. However our hotel is situated 20m to the metro station which give you access to every sightseeing easily, knowing that the center of Paris is Notre dame and it is 10 minute from the hotel. It is also walking distance to place de la Bastille. on your next visited do not hesitate to back to us for some more information.
Thank you.
Regards

Really handy for Daumesnil Metro, its clean and friendly, staff speak English, its quiet at night. The breakfast offered is a good spread. I stayed here because I was attending a concert at Bercy and its only a short walk to/from there, there are plenty of nice bistros in the area and bakers too.

The staff was very helpful and friendly. We chose this hotel because of price and proximity to the metro. The room was clean quiet. The made a couple of restaurant recommendations and the one we chose turned out to be rather nice.
