Hotel Le Relais des Halles is an adorable and convenient hotel tucked in the heart of Paris. The location could not be more convenient from those taking the train in from CDG airport -- it's a very short walk from the Chatelet-les-Halles station on the RER B route. There are many restaurants and cafes in the neighborhood. It's also an easy walk to all the sites along the Seine: the Louvre, Jardin des Tuilleries, Place de la Concord, etc.
The building itself is quite nice and the rooms are quiet and clean. The bathroom was well-equipped and I am sorry my stay wasn't longer so I could try out the deep tub! It's also the first hotel I've stayed in with a complementary iPad for your use in your room. I had not included breakfast in my reservation, but when I saw the prices for a basic breakfast at the nearby cafes, I opted for the hotel's breakfast buffet the next day, which has a modest but satisfying spread.
Everyone I encountered at the front desk was friendly and helpful. I arrived very early from the airport and my room was not yet available. They stored my luggage and it was already moved to my room when I returned from exploring. The hotel was a great base in the city and I would not hesitate to stay there again.More
