Hotel Crayon Rouge by Elegancia

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 18 August 2014

We were supposed to stay at the sister hotel around the corner - the Crayon, but were re directed to the Crayon Rouge on arrival. Lovely little unassuming hotel from outside very close to Bourse and less than 5 minutes to rue Rivoli and the Louvre. The rooms were very quirky and the rainforest shower fantastic - really loved the lights as well. THe room was not huge but then this is Paris! but well decorated - we were dying to colour in some of the black and white wallpaper but resisted. Breakfast is communal but everthing included and very casual and relaxed. The staff checked to see how you were but were not intrusive. I would definately come back again

Room Tip: higher floor away from lift

I have stayed at the sister, Hotel Crayon, and feel in love with the funky, personal style. The rooms were typical Paris small, but they made the best use of the space. It was the best sleep I had, due to wonderful beds and beautifully snuggly pillows, and an amazing overhead shower head, which is just what you needed after all the walking around. The new, Hotel Crayon Rouge was equally as cute, with all the items noted above, a bit bigger rooms and great street views. It is a brand new place, and has a few things to work out, such as the hot and cold handles in the room were backwards, and zero water pressure in the showers. Although I was a little bummed about the shower, we weren't bothered, as these are just bumps in the road of a new place. We let the front desk know for future visitors. We look forward to coming back.

From the moment we arrived to the moment we departed, the staff at the Crayon Rouge were so helpful and kind. The staff was fluent in French and English. They were so accommodating. They gave us a larger room, free breakfast, got us taxis very quickly, had a quick turn around on laundry service. The hotel offers free wifi in room and throughout the hotel. The rooms were brand new, super clean, and adorable. The decor of this hotel is retro chic! It is located on a quiet street in the heart of the 1st arrondisement just minutes away on foot from the Louvre, the Seine, Opera, and Tuileries! Two metro stops are available (Louvre-Rivoli and Palais Royal-Musee du Louvre) about 5 minutes walk from the hotel. There is also a bus stop right outside the front door of the hotel, too. When I return to Paris, I will definitely stay at Hotel Crayon Rouge.

We didn't know what to expect when we first found this hotel online. We called the hotel directly and spoke to Didier. Didier was very informative and friendly, so we booked two nights. From the moment we walked in, we were impressed with the modern, artistic style of the property. Majid checked us in and was extremely professional, cordial and helpful. As a matter of fact, all the staff we dealt with at Crayon Rouge and Hotel Crayon around the corner (where we had a very good free breakfast) were wonderful. Since this is a relatively small hotel, the rooms (like many in Europe) are moderately sized, but the furnishings and fixtures are stylish and brand new, and the big flat screen smart TV was a pleasant surprise. Free wireless worked perfectly in the room and throughout the hotel. As mentioned above, the location is excellent. There a lots of cafés and shops right out the door and it's only about 5 minutes to walk to Tuileries Garden and the Louvre. Overall, we loved this hotel and have already booked more nights for the end of our stay in Europe this summer.

This is a sister property to the Hotel Crayon which is just around the corner. The Crayon Rouge is brand new. For a room as nice as this in this area, you are going to get something small, so don't expect anything different. The room I had was very quiet, due in part to the solid construction of the doors and walls. Everything is brand new. A/C works well, and the TV has BBC World Service and Bloomberg Business TV, as well as a few other English language channels. No view in my room but I asked for a quiet room and I don't care about the view. The free in-room Wifi is the best I have ever had at a hotel. Lightning fast.

Not much to say about the location except that it's amazing. It's minutes from the Louvre. Contrary to what you might read, there are always taxis cruising around this area with a green light on and you can just flag one and hop in.

Breakfast is included but I didn't have it so can't comment. Step out the door and there are lots of little cafes and a couple of grocery stores and a pharmacy within a few minutes walk.

Staff were young and polite. I can't imagine you're going to get better value in this part of town at these prices. If you're staying there within the next few months, make sure you know exactly what the construction situation is, since they have yet to complete some work on the main floor and depending on where your room is, you may get some noise.
