“Convenient Location, Friendly Staff, Nice Stay”
Reviewed 24 June 2012

Had a business trip to Paris and we settled on The Five Hotel as it was in the price range and looked interesting. Very small room, but comfortable and clean. Funky features such as LCD lighting on the wall and along the shelving, shower head lights up when water is running. Fake rose petals of different colours decorate the bed after each cleaning, which is nice touch. At first glance the room looked a bit tired, could have used a bit of paint and the bathroom tap was loose, but it all worked fine and it was a very comfortable stay. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The lobby is a bit odd, called the Love Capsule, decorated all in red with some erotic coffee table books strewn about. Breakfast is served in here, and you have to kind of lean over a very small table on bubble chairs to eat. We skipped breakfast - there's lots of choice in the area so I'd recommend going out of the room.

If you stay here, you have to visit the Sadaharu AOKI shop on the corner and get some macaroons - they are to die.

Room Tip: I'm sure they're all good.

Dear FreqTrav99,
We appreciate your feedback... It is really important because businessmen are not our main clientele!
We are aware that some of our rooms are small, but as you mentioned, we pay attention to the decoration and to details (rose petals, lights,...).
Concerning the breakfast, we have recently improved the variety of our choices (macarons, cakes, pastries,...). The breakfast room will reopen soon!!!
Hopefully you will not skip it next time!
Best Parisian Regards,
The Five Reception Team

We stayed in The Five hotel in september 2011 for our anniversary , we loved it!!

The staff were very welcoming and helpful throughout our stay!

We stayed in 2 different rooms we had booked a standard room for the first night and the suite with the outside jaccuzi for the second night , the hotel rang us a few weeks before we were due to go saying that they were very sorry but there had been a mistake with the bookings and asked if we could swap our jaccuzi room for the first night instead , we were fine with this but they gave us a bottle of champagne for the inconvenience which was nice!

jaccuzi room was lovely jaccuzi was lovely room was a good size plus it had a sitting room we enjoyed this room!
The next room was just as lovely just smaller not to small to be honest i don't expect much i size in paris most rooms are small! the decor was fan modern , stylish and very well done and the the beds were comfortable!
Great location to only 10 min walk to metro !

We loved this hotel and if we ever go back to paris which we will i will book again :)

We recently stayed in The Five Hotel in May 2012. This wasn't the hotel we originally booked, but Expedia had us booked in a hotel that wasn't even open yet!!! When we arrived in Paris and realized we had nowhere to stay, the staff at The Legend Hotel (hotel originally booked and not open) stayed with us for 3 hours and fought with Expedia on our behalf to find a solution. The solution ended up being The Five. Once we arrived at the Five, we couldn't have been happier with the rooms or service. The staff there was very attentive and helpful in everyway. The regular rooms are very clean and nice. We were given some suites for a couple nights to make up for the Expedia problem. If you have the chance, the suites are a great experience. My husband and I were lucky enough to enjoy "the One room". I highly recommend this hotel and the staff. They saved the day when our first trip to Paris was well on the way to being ruined.

Dear Teneil K,

Even though we were not your first choice, it was a pleasure to welcome you in our Five Hotel for your first trip into the city of Love!!

All the team works hard to make sure every need of our guest is met, and it is always pleasant whan it is recognized!

We are also happy that you found back your phone.

As you mentioned it, going to the Five Hotel is not only going to a Parisian Hotel, but it is more about living an experience.

Well if you are used to an American hotel you will be shocked by how small this one is!

Everything is small! Lobby, rooms, shower, bathroom are all petit. If you can get over that it is ok!

Workers at desk are super nice and accommodating. The "love capsule" is a bit strange but I just figure it is Paris. Red walls, red ceilings and red furniture. The book shelves are full of classy books full of neud men and women. Somewhat tastefully done but odd.

Probably a good hotel to get engaged at!

Elevator is new but small. It can only hold one person and a bag!

One positive point. Good free wifi and amazing air conditioning. Both are rare in Europe.

I would stay again!!

Dear sandie2009,

We are sad that you were not charmed and touched by the Five spirit.
Some of our rooms may be small, but the Five Hotel is more about cocooning and emotion. Our staff is not only here to accomodate you, but to make sure you are having a unique adventure.

If you were planning to stay with us again, note that we have several Suites that are more spacious. We have a Suite with a private Jacuzzi on the terrasse, and the One by the Five which is a 50 square meter suite, with 2 bathrooms, a small kitchen, a private dance room, a levitating bed, and a ton on other nice surprises...!

We still hope that you will remember your experience in our Hotel.

Best Parisian regards,

The Five Reception Team

We spent the first two nights of our honeymoon in the One by the Five... everything about it was simply perfect. The rooms are amazing... we were like kids in a sweet shop running round switching the different lighting effects on and off and touching all the beautiful fabrics....the bed was incredible and gave us both the best nights sleep we have ever had, the breakfasts delicious and all the extra unexpected touches were fantastic. Tanya and the team went out of their way to ensure our stay here (and then for the night after at The Five itself) was totally unforgettable and for that we cannot thank them enough....we cant wait to return.
