Historical Traveller Reviews of Grand Hotel de Suez
Charmedfrom Wayne and Terry
It was...... averagefrom A TripAdvisor Member
Our stay here was .......... average.
Location - the location was perfect, along rue St. Michel a short walk from the Metro, Luxembourg Gardens, Notre Dame, the Seine - lots of restaurants, etc in area
Price - very reasonable price at 110 euros a night
Room - good size overlooking rue St Michel - large doors open up on julien balcony allowing great view and fresh air
Room - was very dated and bland, and the towels and bedding looked 25 years old - refurbishing the rooms and adding new towels, bed linens/pillows would make a dramatic improvement
Breakfast - every hotel during our 3 week trip provided free breakfast - at Suez, it was 5 euros a day for breakfast which only included 1 croissant, 1 roll, and coffee.. that's it! even at the inexpensive 2 star Hotel Italia in Rome, we had a free breakfast with fruit cocktail, cheese spread, pizza, cereal, unlimited crossants, juice... the breakfast here was disappointing - we ended up buying croissants from a local bakery for less than 1 euro each instead
In summary, the location was great, the price was great, the room was okay.. if they refurbished the room a bit, updated the bedding/pillows and towels and improved the breakfast everything would be perfect.
I'd give the hotel 3 stars out of 5. We'd probably stay somewhere else next time.
Lacked charm and noisy.from Hawker
The room was fine. Bathroom was a little outdated, but manageable. TV, no a/c or fan.
The biggest detractor was the noise. People have complained about it at the front of the hotel on the Boulevard Saint Michel, but we were at the back of the hotel. Unfortunately and Irish pub is situated below that makes a good amount of noise until 2am. Also the view from the back lacks charm. I opened the window in the morning to see a bum curled up in the doorway opposite.
You must go to Maubert square one stop away (you can easily walk) and go to the fromagery. Brilliant. Take some cheese and wine and sit on the Seine overlooking Notre Dame.
Would probably not go back, will try and experience a different hotel next time.
Absolutely gorgeous!from A TripAdvisor Member
Good little hotel but very noisy!!!from A TripAdvisor Member
to be moved several times but to no avail. I even used ear plugs and I still didn't get much sleep. In addition, it was very warm so we had to have the doors open due to the heat. There was a small fan in the room but it didn't provide much relief. I would probably not stay here again mainly because it is located on such a busy street. There were several other hotels within walking distance that were located on a pedestrain only alleyways. So the next time we will stay there and not at the Suez.

Magnifique!from A TripAdvisor Member
I would characterize the hotel as "ship shape." I stayed in a twin bed room overlooking the blvd. St. Michel as was my request. The tiny room had just enough storage room with two small closets and a large shelf close to the ceiling to store empty luggage. The bathroom had new fixtures and a wonderfully complex shower system with ample hot water. Everything was sparkling clean every day. The heated towel rack came in handy when used to expedite overnight drying of the the inevitable lingerie rinse outs. The linens were fresh and silky. The towels, changed daily, were adequate and more were provided if requested. The floor to ceiling french windows opened to a tiny balcony where I could watch the activity of the boulevard from 4 floors up.
The staff at the hotel were exemplary. From the first "bonjour" the last "au revoir," they were helpful and courteous. Martine was especially gracious with recommendations to le restaurant, la boulangerie, and even a pedicure salon! The maid who delivered our breakfast every morning was a delight. We worked on our French and the staff worked on their English with us.
Security at the hotel was good: our room was equipped with a deadbolt and the door to the boulevard was locked after dark and opened manually by staff when we pressed the buzzer on the street.
As you can tell, I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at this hotel and would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone interested in a true Parisian experience at a relatively modest cost.
Top Local Tips for Paris
ask for common bus routes don't be afraid of the public buses. Your hotel front desk will happily reccommend some common routes and departure times. Busses are much faster and more convenient than the metor (which isn't exactly bad itself...)
Great restaurant for those staying near Boulevard St Michel On the Rue Racine look for the Bouillon Racine - with the really cool art deco interior. Have the creme brulee on a waffle for dessert. Awesome.
Buy your Orange Card to get around Great public transportation i.e., subways, metro, busses. Get your orange card at the beginning of the week and a good map and you are good to go on your own. Beautiful city and very easy to get around.
