Historical Traveller Reviews of Artus Hotel

Paris beats Aspen

from A TripAdvisor Member
My "girlfriend" and I stayed over the New Years holiday and had a very memorable time. The rooms are on the small size but they have good beds, a cozy-hip feel, clean and bathrooms are decent size. The location is great too - strongly recommend having a Mojito at the Cafe Mabillion which is great place to end your night and is right around the corner from the hotel. The service is very good and Sanjay who runs the hotel provides excellent suggestions for places to eat and visit. If you want a small hotel in hip location then the Artus is the place.

Kind of pricey but good location

from madam_bomb
With Arthus, you're paying for hip-factor and location. If that's what you like, then this is the place. The service was excellent and the added feature of a computer in the lobby for internet was great (although maybe they need two terminals as it was busy from time to time).

It IS on a busy avenue (Rue de Buci is a great street with shops and cafes) but you're in a world-class city, not a suburb. I'm a light sleeper and didn't have a problem with it. I would definitely stay up high if you can.

Interesting part of the hotel is the art of course. The stairway is a huge circular affair replete with a great graffiti mural all the way down and all the doors are done by different artists (about 10 artists in all, some doing different doors).

There was a cafe downstairs, but I never even poked my head down there. They have papers and a great concierge service (They even got a reservation at a restaurant we were hoping to dine at).

Overall it was a great place. Kind of romantic and kind of hip (in that buttoned-up Parisian way). I'd recommend it to couples and maybe business travelers, but it's probably not for kids as the rooms (at least ours) were a bit tight (it's in an old apartment building essentially, like many small hotels in Paris).


from mariopal
Ethnic decor for a beautiful small hotel in the middle of the left bank "dinner area". We, my wife and I, love this hotel as we fall in love - definetly - here.
PROs: Nice and friendly staff, beautiful rooms and bathrooms.
CONs: noisy and crowded (almost pedestrian) street plenty of restaurants and bars.
PRICE: In my opinion a little overpriced
Overall rating: really above average

Well deserved reputation

from A TripAdvisor Member
Mr. Sanjay knows the hotel service industry; reflective of all the positive post. He knows exactly how much help we needed and when we needed our privacy. We stayed at the Artus in Late Nov. early December (we had moved from a diff. hotel because the suite we had did not have sufficient noise insulation from the hallways so we couldn't sleep in). After explaining this to Mr. Sanjay, he made the recommendation of their duplex which was perfect. A very charming room with crisp, clean comforters (something we quickly learn to appreciate during Paris's winters). We had a separate entrance (no neighbors) and slepted in t'ill 10 a.m. on some days and took late afternoon naps on others. Beautiful vaulted ceiling in our room with a free standing tub for two and a separate shower. Every single staff person we encountered were highly professional and warm. Mr. Sanjay surely knows how to run his hotel. The Artus is in the heart of the Quatier Latin on Rue Buci. Perfect location whether you are returning to Paris or on a first visit. Everything you imagine about Paris, the sites, the charms, the specialty stores are outside your door at the Artus. This was a return trip for us. We've stayed elsewhere in the past but in the future will always return to the Artus. Fantastic.

comfortable, friendly and unbeatable location

from JBBUN
Bottom line – id recommend this hotel to a friend.
Bedroom- Fine size, smartly appointed, quiet despite overlooking the street on the first floor, good AC, very comfortable bed.
Staff – bend over backwards helpful.
Location- wouldn’t stay outside this district when visiting paris again. Shopping nirvana is on your doorstep- bon marche (best department store in Paris by some distance), rue cherche midi, rue four- you wont escape this area without happily hammering your credit card. Any number of great restaurants and great buzz.
Price- We opted for the Large double room in the last week in October- €235 a night.
We booked directly by email at a price equal to any of the ‘cheap sites’ we consulted. Although it may have been possible to get better value elsewhere, the room, hotel atmosphere etc were flawless and it was money well spent. The exemplary service the hotel offered began with the booking when we got an immediate response. The hotel also booked a table at the excellent restaurant Lipp nearby (think of Bewleys in Dublin but with far better food (and still open) and as authentic a French atmosphere as is possible in a restaurant that appears in so many guide books).
Only downside was breakfast- surprisingly poor- just don’t bother!

Best hotel of our trip to Europe

from A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed for 5 nights in July of 2004. The room was a good size, clean, and colorful. We chose a "room with shower"; however, in the future we would go with a tub...the shower is really, really small. Nice breakfast and great location, but the best part is the staff. They went out of their way to assist us with restaurant reservations, directions, shopping tips...we were treated so well that the service at the other three places we stayed during our vacation couldn't compare. We will be back!

Hip and Hospitable

from Getouttatown
Just returned from a terrific September stay at the Artus. This casually chic boutique property is in the perfect location with great access to a wide range of shopping, dining, metro stops and major attractions. Right in the middle of Parisian life yet remarkably quiet rooms. Above all, Sanjay, the hotel's helpful and friendly concierge (who seemed to run the property singlehandedly) made our stay memorable, assisting us with reservations and questions via email before we even arrived in Paris. This hotel also features a few unique aspects, giving the feel and hospitality of an american b&b with the privacy and amenities of a small hotel. A fun place to stay.

Enjoyable stay

from London34
We had a two night stay at the Artus after a week in Provence. It was a relief to arrive somewhere so modern and minimalist after a week of chintz. Our room was great apart from a bit of noise from people in the corridor. Staff were friendly and very helpful. Breakfast was nice but a bit slow to be served and we noticed other people with boiled eggs when we weren't ever offered any. Our only complaint was a very irritating woman who took up most of the breakfast room conducting some sort of business. Not the hotel's fault perhaps, she was probably a demanding guest but they could have warned us that she was there and likely to glare at us as we went into the room.

I agree completly with the last reveiw!

from swa
I spent only one night at the Artus hotel (at the end of our France trip). It was clean, decent size room, the art on the doors was interesting but the hotel has a very cold feeling except for the manager Sanjeet- who goes out of his way to be very helpful and thoughtful! The breakfast is OK (we had a much better breakfast at the first hotel we stayed at in Paris prior to seeing the countryside of France). The decaf coffee was instant, no fruit or protein. Just bread and jam and full fat yougart.

The location however is wonderful!!

Nice, but cannot quite understand the hype

from goldlie
We just returned from a four-night stay at the Artus. The main reason we booked the hotel was because of all of the rave reviews it received from other Trip Advisor users. Frankly, we do not understand what all the hype is about. The superior double room was clean, with a good size bed. However, the room was in need of paint and "sprucing up." The service we received was nothing special and actually, the day staff was not that helpful. The breakfast was adequate, nothing more. It did not vary at all from day to day. Most importantly, there is something lacking in atmosphere. In fact, the hotel, although colorful and "artsy", is still kind of "cold." The location is the best part of the hotel!

Top Local Tips for Paris

Catacombs, Gargyole Tour and Seine River Cruise There were three things we knew we definitely wanted to do on this trip and that was visit the catacombs, visit Notre Dame and view the city from the top of Notre Dame and take a cruise on the Seine. We accomplished all three and highly recommend them. The catacombs are an extraordinarily unique and humbling experience but get there early b/c by the time we left there was a huge line and I don't imagine a dark cavern filled with tourists and human bones is much fun if there is pushing and shoving. Definitely wait in the line (there's always a line) to climb to the top of Notre Dame. The gargoyles up close are just fabulous and it's great way to see the city. Finally, take a cruise on the Seine. I honestly can't remember which cruise we did but the one hour cruise that departed at 9:50pm just as it was getting dark was highly memorable and the piped in French music (if you can count Sinatra singing "I love Paris" as French) set the scene even if somewhat cheesy!

August is not the ideal time to visit Paris. If you do not like hoards of 'tourists' do not visit Paris in August. I loved my time in Paris but had to stay away from the 'attractions' as all I could see sometimes was the tourists. Many of the tourists seemed very intent on their checklists and must do's while completey unaware of others who were in the same gallery, cafe, train, shop etc with them. I was warned not to go in August but as i was travelling to go to a wedding i did not have much choice.

Good dining For dinner in St Germain: Le Relais de l’ Entrecote for meat lovers, and the Brasserie Lipp. For cofee/pastries Cafe de Flore. Also for some of the best dishes of duck, the chain "Chez Clement", where the food was so good that helped us forget the awful service. For shopping, dont forget to go at the Gallerie Lafayette, which can be considered a tourist attraction like the british Harrod's, but also at the area of Montmartre, there are a lot of small shops with really pretty and cute things to buy. The Metro is convenient and very popular, but you don't have the chance to see the city. There is a tourist bus going around the city, and the taxis are not very expensive. Also except of the main, and well known attractions don't miss the excellent Picasso exhibition at the Grand Palais.
