“Modern hotel near public transportation.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 October 2013

Just two blocks from St. Lazare train station and the Metro where several lines meet. There are many basic local places to eat nearby but has a great deal of traffic and noise. This is a major commuter station and for trains to Normandy. We had problems with the a/c. It kept turning off in the middle of the night and I woke up too hot. It would turn back on in the morning so maybe it was for saving energy. Our room was a nice size for Paris and even had a separate wet bar area but we may have paid a little extra for that room. The staff were all very nice.

Room Tip: We had interior room. The window opened into a small courtyard with no view but quite. The street...

Dear Mike,

Thank you very much for letting us know your feelings. We are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay, and that you appreciated the quality of service and the location of our hotel.
We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience you experienced with the air conditioner, it should have been a temporary technical issue that we fixed in the meantime.

We really hope to see you again soon at the Villathena hotel.

Best regards,
The management

Our first hotel was awful, so we walked in here and they were so sweet and helpful. Showed us the room ahead of time, spoke with the manager and two ladies at the front. Very clean, great windows. In walking distance to everything. It feels safe, haven't had the breakfast yet :)

A great little hotel with a great location - nice and clean, small rooms - ideal for business as free WIFI in the rooms. Easy to find from the train station too, but don't get mixed up with the bakery across the street with the similar name!

Room Tip: Small rooms overall but generally clean, quiet and good for one night.

Fantastic location, basically next to St Lazare station and only a 5 mins walk from Printemps for some serious shopping. The hotel is modern, has friendly staff and the rooms are clean. Downside: rooms are quite small if you are 2 people in the room and there are no tea/coffee making facilities.
The mattress is firm but comfortable but the pillows are really extremely firm and not very pleasant to lie on.

Room Tip: I had a room facing the street but had no problems with noise etc.

This is the second time I´ve stayed at this hotel. A couple of years ago I spent four nights with my family here, and the past week with my sister. We had a very pleasant and wonderful stay. The rooms are very neat and beautiful, exactly the way we like it. The bed is nice and big, the bathroom is good.
The service is excellent, very kind people who are willing to help with everything at any time.
The location of the hotel is quite perfect. It´s very close to a big metro and train station, and you can walk to Boulevard Haussman with Printemps and Galerie Lafayette. From the airport CDG you could take the Roissy bus which stops at the Opera, and from there you can easily walk to the hotel with your Luggage.
I would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a hotel in the centre of Paris with a good price/quality ratio.

My sister and I traveled to Paris in May 2013, I chose this hotel based on tripadvisor and we were Extremely pleased...EXTREMELY! The hotel is located on a very quite street, close to the Metro and shopping. We hopped on and off the Metro hitting every arrondissements in Paris. This is an IDEAL location! Also not far from the Rossi bus terminal. The hotel was CLEAN and staff was very friendly. The only thing I did not care for was how the shower was designed...it was odd and and water got every where...

We stayed for one night in July, we arrived at 2pm the room was ready and there was a carpark round the corner. Check in was quick and the rooms were clean, modern and tidy although match box sized! I wouldn't have been happy to stay much longer for this reason! I did think this hotel was quite expensive for what it was considering breakfast wasn't included.

However I felt safe here, was happy with the service, cleanliness etc.

I would recommend this hotel for a short stay in Paris!

Dear Scarlett,

Many thanks for your recommendation. We are glad you appreciated the cleanliness of our rooms and the quality of service.
For a longer stay, we invite you to ask for one of our DELUXE or EXECUTIVE rooms which will offer you more comfort as they are bigger and offer other advantages. We will be happy to assist you directly for your next booking in order to make the best offer, also, you have to know that earlier you book, the best deal you’ll find.

We are looking forward to hearing from you soon
