“right hotel for a weekend in paris”
Reviewed 20 October 2009

First of all, the location of the hotel is great. We went by car and had no trouble getting into Paris (as the hotel is situated quite close to the peripherique), and a very good parking is nearby. Nevertheless you're close to the centre, and walking by foot to the Marais is no problem (on the way you'll pass the Bastille metro station to head off to other directions). The neighbourhood is very nice (and comfortable to walk through at night), the Viaduct des arts is right around the corner. The staff was really friendly (we spoke french though), and the room was okay - quite small, but very clean and giving a 'Paris-feeling' with a high window and a view over the roofs of Paris. Our room was situated next to the elevator, which caused a bit noise at night though. Also a minus was the mattress (an old one with springs). But for 2 nights that's absolutely doable. After all I think it's a good place for someone who wants to stay in a clean and safe surrounding with good and quick access to the rest of Paris.

This establishment is a rip-off. They took 80 Euros of of money. They do not deliver what they promise. We left and found another hotel.

Stay away at all cost. Do not even do business with organisations that refer people there.

Very small room, even for European standard. Awful mattress. No stand for the luggage. Had to put the luggage on the floor and we had no space to walk. Free WiFI internet never worked. The A/C was not working in our room and it was 28C outside! 2nd room offered had the same problem. After threatening to leave, they offered us a room on the higher floor which was hardly better with the A/C working at 10% of it's capacity. The host said he did not know the A/C was not working! How could he not? The reception room was so hot!!!!! 2 people with luggage cannot even fit in the tiniest elevator I have ever seen! Would never go back even if it was free!

A value for money hotel in a great position.Handy to everything.A bit noisy with traffic but closing the double windows fixed that. We were allowed in our room early and after a twenty four hour flight that was greatly appreciated.The reception staff were extra helpful even down to finding a charger for my wifes Phone (at no cost) which we had forgot to bring.I would have hesitation in recomending this hotel.

Reviewed 23 March 2009

This trip to Paris was a gift from our friends for our wedding (two years ago!). They gave us a coupon for two nights in Paris and we could choose from a number of hotels. I checked trip advisor and selected the Viator. I am writing this review because this hotel was very nice with very nice staff, and because the reviews on trip advisor were right. The location is fine, metro and station nearby and the neigbourhood is nice. No worries to walk home late at night. Our room was very quiet, windows etc are well isolated. Everything was very clean en friendly to look at. Nice carpets and wallpaper. Bathroom very clean and a good shower. If i have to mention a down-point it would be the blankets on the bed. I would have prefered a duvet. But do not let this keep you from going to the Viator!

I also found out about Hotel viator via tripadvisor. The hotel is few minutes walk to Gare de Lyon where you can get the RER and Metro and be on your desired place anywhere in Paris. The hotel, though our room is small, is functional and well equipped with the basics. They offer free internet which is a big plus! The receptionist is accomodating and would answer any question or infos you want to know. Chinese and asian restaurants are all over the area of rue parrot and blvd diderot. I would recommend this hotel to everyone who are looking for great value and comfortable place to stay in Paris.

Reviewed 12 November 2008

We stayed at the Viator in October and found it a real bargain. Small, clean, with a friendly staff (although limited English) and very well located. The Gare de Lyon is just a five-minute walk away and there are good restaurants, a wonderful open-late grocery story and an Internet Cafe just steps away. Right on the Main #1 Metro line. We were on the top floor, which meant walking up the final flight. But the room was worth it - spacious, newly renovated with 10-foot ceilings and a view over the rooftops of Paris. Bed was okay, but could have been better. Don't bother with the breakfast as there is both a patisserie and several restaurants offering both French and English breakfasts just around the corner. Despite the busy neighbourhood it is quite quiet at night. Good value in expensive Paris.
