Historical Traveller Reviews of Hotel de Varenne
Charming!from A TripAdvisor Member
OUTSIDE: Nice and quiet surrounded by govermental offices, super charming corridor and garding with table and chairs (we had wine, cheese and bread and sat there for 3 hours to enjoy conversation. hotel provided glasses, bottle opener, napkins!).
SERVICE: Everybody spoke English except maids. Very friendly. Quick responses via e-mails. Nice breadfast comes with orange juice, croissant, chololate croissant, baguette, jam, butter, coffee (non-expresso) or hot cholocate.
LOCATION: Hotel is at Metro "M13" Varenne station. If you are coming from the CDG using Metro/RER, you will take RER B (30 min), switch at St. Michell to RER C, get off at Invalides and walk to the hotel or switch to Metro 13 to go to Varenne. Note Metro stations do not have escalators or elevators. To and from Varenne station, you can view Eiffel tower (beautiful at night!)
PRICE: Go to the home page to find out any promotion. We paid 129 euro for suite and 119 for non-suite.
I definately recommend Varenne if you want to stay in clean, quiet, nice but not intimidating place.
Magnificient! You all should stay here!from mystiquel
We (my husband and son) stayed here for 6 nights in July and have absolutely nothing to complain about, just praises and thanks to the staff who made our stay memorable. After hours and hours of walking our hotel made us relax and feel the essence of being on holiday. Loved the ambience and the garden where we had breakfast a couple of times. Special mention to one of the hotel receptionists, Farouk who was ever so helpful and always met us with his warm smile after being out the whole day. Absolutely maginificient and really, you all should stay here!
An absolutely outstanding hotel in Parisfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The rooms are spacious, immaculately clean and have loads of light. The breakfast served downstairs each morning is fantastic - fresh croissants and baguette and wonderful cafe au lait. The location is perfect: within walking distance of the Champs Elysees and the Eiffel Tower, in Les Invalides.
But it is the staff that deserves special mention. Everyone is courteous and helpful - indeed, they really do "go the extra mile" to be helpful -- to the point that they mailed two t-shirts that I had forgotten in our room to me. Even little things like checking when the local post office opens or locating a local laundry for me - it has been a long time since I received such excellent service in a hotel.
I will not hesitate to return to the Hotel de Varenne the next time I am in Paris and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a wonderful small hotel that is centrally located.

Great value, good sized rooms, nice flat-screen TV with good range of European / UK channels, air conditioning that worked well in a mini-heat wave, and the staff are friendly and speak good English. Location is peaceful but very central, only a few minutes walk from the metro or the RER. The safe worked (I find sometimes they don't, or they are temperamental so I dont trust them in case all my thing get locked and I can't get them). Lots of nice touches that you don't always get in this class of hotel: eg about a dozen good quality removeable wooden coat hangers in a wardrobe (I hate those hangers that you can't remove from the rail and are impossible to use sometimes).
A couple of minor points..
...a bit stingey with towels (1 small bath towel, 1 hand towel and 1 floor towel), maybe it's because I was staying in the room alone I only got this number, but an extra towel would have been appreciated. Had it been an issue I'd have asked for an extra towel, the staff are very approachable so don't think it would have been an issue.
...I didn't see any smoke detectors, and there is no fire door separating a corridor of rooms from the main stairway / lobby. I am sure it meets whatever standards there are, and maybe there are smoke detectors, but I'd have felt reassured to see a smoke detector hard-wired in the ceiling of my room and in the corridor. I felt safe (and was on 1st floor), but the fire safety precautions are thigns I am always aware of when I stay away, and comment on when I post reviews here - maybe someone else staying at the hotel can provide more information on this.
Overall a real gem of a place, wish there were more like it and I'm certainly going to return (as long as it's not always fully booked because of all these good reviews!).

Top Local Tips for Paris
I have booked my hotel on a great website I've booked most of my hotels in Paris on a new website called 123france ( http://www.123france.com )
If you want to see the Eifel Tower Go early!!!! Get in line before 8AM unless you want to stand in a line for a couple hours. We got in line at 7:50AM and were at the top of the Eifel tower 10 minutes after it opened. When we came down at 9AM, there were at least 500 people (if not more) standing in line.
Palais De Versailles been many times to Paris, never manged to visit Versailles until now.... its superb. Get the RER train, buy the advance ticket from an office before the palace, worth the extra 7 EUR to miss the queue's .
