Historical Traveller Reviews of Beaubourg Hotel
A smile would be nice...from cardy
The room was a decent size, ours was facing the street but noise was not a problem. The construction noise is still there but not at ridiculous hours.
The location was perfect for most of the sites and a great collection of bars and bitros.
Beware Construction Noisefrom Mollydoll
It may be worth checking in advance to see if construction has finished before beooking.
Additionally, it may be helpful for you to know that hotel can arrange pick up and drop off at the airport for a fee--information that isn't on their website.
Just enjoyed fifth stay at the Hotel Beaubourgfrom BoarderX
The hotel is on the border between the Marais district, which is historic, Jewish, gay, and upscale but with a neighborhood vibe, and the fast-paced Centre Pompidou/Les Halles commercial district. Lots of cafes and boulangeries, and great shopping. Just a few blocks to the Seine and the Bastille/Opera. Best transit option here is not the Rambuteau station next to the hotel, but the Chatelet/Les Halles complex about three blocks away that gives you access to all of Paris and the surrounding region.
The rooms and bathrooms are small, but a good value. I prefer the rooms in half of the hotel above the reception area. The exposed beams add a great deal of character. If quiet time is more important to you, then you would be better off with a room in the other half of the hotel, which is off the street entirely.
The hotel has added a free wireless Internet service on the ground floor, which is particularly helpful now that many of the Internet cafes in the area have shut their doors.
Comfortable Beaubourgfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Our rooms were cleaned and reset each day and the cleaning staff were very friendly.
The hotel is on Rue Simon le Franc just off Rue renard and opposite the Pompidou Centre. It is a short walk down Rue Renard to the river and there are many cafes and restaurants in the vicinity. Nearest Metro is Rambuteau but you would have to change lines to go to most places a tourist might be interested in so it is best to walk a bit further to Chatelet - Les Halles.
I would thoroughly recommend this hotel. It is not very upmarket but is clean, comfortable, friendly, convenient and good value for money.
Noisy, smelled like cigarettesfrom Shira
Great location - Great pricefrom A TripAdvisor Member
Don't judge the hotel from the outside. Once you step through the front doors you will be relieved and pleasantly surprised. The lobby is comfortable and well lit. I paid a bargain price of $90euros/night. The rooms are like all the other Paris hotels- very small with dim lighting. I had a 'twin' room with two very small but comfortable beds pushed together. The bedding was clean, new and bright, the bathroom had a shower and bath, sink, toilet and bidet - could use updating in a few years. There is a mini bar/fridge but no safe. The air conditioning worked great and the window open out as well. The rooms seem soundproof - never heard the neighbours except when the door closed. The hotel staff are pleasant, speak english and are very helpful when requesting hotel reservations or recommendations. There is a breakfast room which I did not use (very expensive $3euros for cornflakes!) but just out in the Pompidou centre there is the Cafe Beaubourg (huge with indoor upstairs and downstairs seating as well as a large outside area). The coffee is wonderful as is the fresh squeezed O.J. and pamplemousse and the croissants and baquette with asst. confiture is well worth the $. Forget the American Breakfast special unless you like a lot of powdered scrambled eggs!
This area itself is very central with a lot of boutique shopping at the Pompidou cente and Notre Dame and the Marais proper both just a 10 minute walk away. There are lots of great restaurants too. Really like the Right Bank as opposed to the Left Bank. Better food, better shopping, better looking people.
Downtown Paris oasisfrom DredgerWisconsin
Not in the Marais proper but good value for money nonethelessfrom A TripAdvisor Member
We didn't have breakfast but went to the Pain Quotidien (note: we nearly got stung here as, asking for a brioche, they brought us their Sunday brunch, not being able to pronounce the English word correctly they misunderstood). Paul on the other hand is great - there's one at the end of the Rue du Renard by the Hotel de Ville metro and branches everywhere.
Can't complain about the hotel really - for one night it was fine. If I was staying longer and for next time I'll want to be in the pretty part of the Marais though.
Hotel with great character and locationfrom Kezzam
Price performer, tough to find in Parisfrom EasyGoingMidwestGuy
Top Local Tips for Paris
Champagne Area of France If you have some time when in France, it is worth making a trip to Reims or Epernay for a champagne day. The towns are adorable (cathedral in Reims is outstanding), and the day is just a great break from Paris touring. The trains are reasonable to get there, and when in Reims, you don't need transportation if you are going to cathedral, Veuve Cliquot, Pommery, Piper, etc.
Metro Tickets You can buy metro tickets in advance at the Eurostar terminal at Waterloo. Saves the hassle when you arrive in the city.
Shuttle from CDG to Paris, then to Orly I think the website is ParisShuttle.com, and the van transport was well worth the small price of 30 Euros for 2 people from CDG to Paris, then from Paris to Orly. Great price (better than the metro), and the van was waiting for us at CDG, and early at the hotel.
