“Cute”
Reviewed 9 March 2014

Considering the low price I paid, this hotel was excellent. While small it was in a beautiful safe suburb and had a metro stop literally thirty seconds walk from the door. Travel time to central Paris was about ten minutes. The room was very comfortable, some English news channels on the TV and a good bed/shower. Receptionists were lovely and welcoming and the included breakfast was very nice. I'd strongly recommend this place to anybody wanting a quiet retreat without being too far away from all of the good stuff Paris has to offer.

Excellent hotel in a very convenient area. The staff are friendly, helpful and nice, so I can only presume they aren't French. The hotel is around 15 mins away from Paris on the metro. I would highly recommend this Hotel to anyone and look forward to returning.

We spend 4 days in a triple room in this hotel in February 2014, we really enjoyerd our stay which was made memorable by the excellent service, nothing seemed too much trouble from printing boarding passes for our return flights to organising taxis etc. They were good a recommending placed to eat locally and everything was done with a smile.
The triple room we had was small but I would not expect anything else in Paris, It was extremely clean and had excellent free wifi in the room on the 4th floor and in the public areas. The beds were very comfortable and we all slept very well.
The reasons are two fold why it did not reach 5 stars - 1 the breakfast while quite adequate did not meet the same standards as the rest of the hotel and servce. There were alll the usual suspects for a buffet but choice was limited. Secondly the location although very close to the Metro was not on any direct bus or Metro lines to the centre and therefore changes had to be made.
Overall this was a very nice hotel and we would stay there again

I stayed at the Grand Hotel Dore for five days on business travel. The staff was extraordinarily helpful - they helped me find my way to different sites in Paris, they made restaurant reservations, and they assisted with travel plans. Plus, they were friendly! My room was clean and well cared for. It was a bit small but because I didn't spend a lot of time in it, this was not a drawback. In addition, the neighborhood is lovely. There is a small bookshop down the street, restaurants, a beautiful church, and an outdoor market two days a week. It's a bit off the regular tourist routes and has its own character. Also, the Promenade des Plantes is nearby - a beautiful walk (or run) with plants and flowers on a converted rail line. I'd definitely return to the Grand Hotel Dore!

Room Tip: The single rooms are small. If you'd like a larger room, be sure to request one.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for valentines weekend and were not disappointed at all. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was clean, had a very comfortable bed, a small but perfectly suitable shower/bathroom but was a little 'bijou'. What else do you expect in Paris? It was so close to the metro station, you could have hopped there. The breakfast wasn't hugely inspiring - self service with just 2 types of cereal, a pile of bread, some french pastries, tea, coffee, juices, an oeuf. One tip: if you're happy to eat in the area and enjoy fine food, then BOOK at Le Petit Troo - just 2 mins walk down the road. We foolishly didn't book and regretted it hugely after being turned away with no reservation. It was nice to open the floor to ceiling windows out onto a very pretty street and hear the church bells ring. A lovely little hotel.

I stayed here during November 2013 and was very pleased with the hotel. If your looking a hotel that provides you will all the essentials and is positioned in a great location - this is the hotel for you! The hotel is situated right on top of the metro (literally 20 seconds from leaving the hotel), the area is also filled with patisseries, restaurants, local shops etc. I felt very safe within this location and would definitely recommend it. All staff were very welcoming and breakfast was great too - I would advise to get up a little earlier or later if you dont want to wait around to get a seat.

My wife, baby and I just had a great stay at Grand Hotel Dore. The customer service was second to none. Many people mention "small rooms", but this is Paris...what do you expect? Complaining that the room isn't big enough is like complaining that it's cold in Winter or complaining that you don't earn enough money to stay somewhere with bigger rooms (just my opinion). We found the size of the room to be more than sufficient (and bare in mind that before our stay at GHD we had been traveling for a month with a baby, so we had huge bags and a full-size baby crib). The room was clean, had a TV, comfortable bed, mini-fridge with a complimentary water, a desk, WIFI (great signal on the 6th floor) and a good, clean bathroom. The place isn't luxurious, but for the money you are paying, GHD was great. I found the breakfast to be really good - wide selection and fresh. The location is super convenient - metro is a few steps away, grocery store (Simply) just across the street, and a ton of shops, bistros, restaurants etc in the vicinity.
