Positive Reviews

Perfectly Paris

The hotel boasts a splendid location, right in the heart of Paris, next to the iconic Notre Dame Cathedral. Many of the major attractions can be reached on foot or via public transport. There is a metro and RER station just a short walk from the hotel. Shopping, dining, and nightlife are all within arms' reach in the vibrant Latin Quarter and Le Marais.

Decadent Decor

Guests loved the elegant design and unique style of the rooms. Every detail added to the authentic Parisian experience.

Superior Staff

The hotel personnel are incredibly friendly, welcoming, and happy to help. They are incredibly knowledgeable about the city itself, as well as its history and art. Don't hesitate to start a conversation.

Negative Reviews

Steep Stairs

The hotel is an older property, so there is no lift on site, and all rooms are only accessible via stairs. Guests warn that the stairwell is steep and narrow, and can be challenging with heavy bags.

Needing an Upgrade

As this is historic building, you can expect various nuances like creaky floors and slightly scuffed antique furniture. However, guests thought that some cosmetic updates were necessary regardless that wouldn't take away from the authenticity.

Small Bathrooms

Most guests found the bathrooms to be rather tiny and cramped.
