Historical Traveller Reviews of La demeure Hotel
A gem of a hotelfrom Naperville77
The hotel is very quaint and has great charm. It was clean and the accomodations were big! We had a beautiful room on the top floor, with a huge bathroom (tub not a shower - but that added to the relaxation). The room was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. The Asian/Modern decor was charming and the nice lounge was a plus - greeting patrons with a cold soda or a hot cup of espresso. When I think of Paris, this is the type of charming hotel that comes to mind.
Ideal Location to see the sights of Parisfrom StaffsTraveller2
Major plus point is the hotel location on border of 5th and 13th Arondissements, so handy for Les Gobelins and the Quartier Latin. Above all, it seemed quite a safe area to be out at night and a superb choice of restaurants, both French cuisine and more international variety, within a very short walk.
Hotel management very helpful and will recommend local eating places - nothing seemed too much trouble. Also a plentiful supply of city maps at reception covering streets and public transport.
By French standards, the breakfast was more than adequate, with friendly and efficient service in a well designed breakfast room.
Easy to travel into the city centre, either from Metro St Marcel or Gobelins and a simple wallk to Ile de la Cite for Notre Damme etc. Also handy for the journey to CDG airport with just one change from St Marcel (at Gare du Nord).
Tip - buy tickets for local transport within the city centre from the nearby Tabac; a Carnet of 10 tickets for any journey within Paris centre for just Euros 10.70, apparently a useful saving on buying individual tickets. These tickets can be used on Metro, Bus and RER.
Exceeded Expectationsfrom herky
The rooms were clean, well kept and comfortable. As others have mentioned this hotel is not in the center of the action but a Metro ride or a short walk will get you where you want to be. There is a grocery store (Monoprix) right by the Saint Marcel Metro stop where you can grab a cheap dinner or supplies for the next day which we found to be very convenient.
The only thing I would do different is to ask for a room that has a shower. Both rooms we were in had a tub and a shower head on a hose type thing but no shower curtain or any way to mount the shower head to take a normal stand-up type shower. Other than that, I would not hesitate to stay there on my next trip to Paris.
Pleasantly surprisedfrom jmorris_29
Chic reception area
Elevator (though it's TINY)
A/C (it was actually 90 degrees a couple of days)
Close to Mouffetard market -- excellent place for breakfast/lunch
Close to two Metro stops
Easy walk from St. Germain/Latin Quartier area (tho I'm a New Yorker and used to it)
If you want to be in the heart of tourist central, this isn't it. This is a refuge that's closer to residential areas. This is why I picked the area, though, so I was more than satisfied and spent days exploring the Left Bank on foot. However, walking to Notre Dame took only 15 minutes, to give some perspective.

The location of the hotel is good, it's very easy to get anywhere really, and we did walk everywhere. We did a whistle stop tour of all the sights which took us from about 10.30am to 7pm, but it was well worth it. Had a couple of hours rest back at the hotel then went back out (in a taxi!) to the Champs Elysee. We found a really great restaurant actually called Yvan (this is one of the few websites I could find http://paris.city-discovery.com/restaurants/yvan.htm) on Rue Jean-Mermoz 75008 (Tél : 01 43 59 18 40). Its was on the pricey side at €130 for three courses and wine (€32 for the bottle) for two people, but the food was absolutely delicious. We didn't get there until about 11pm and just managed to get a table - although this wasn't due to the hour, but lack of tables (a group of 4 with reservations had just arrived as we were being seated). The restaurant has a very 'party' vibe with a DJ playing a mix of modern cheese and 70's funk and by 11.30 people were out of their seats dancing round their tables!
We had a great weekend in Paris, and the hotel was above our expectations which was a bonus - although I had the worse croque monsieur of my life in a small village on the drive back to the Eurotunnel!
Top Local Tips for Paris
carnet If you plan on using the metro gettinga carnet (book of 10 metro cards) is a must. That way you can use a combination of walking and metro when you get tired.
Historical, Art, Shopping Get your entry ticket for the Louvre at the metro kiosk near the Louvre rather than at the Louvre itself. Wear comfortable shoes for walking & plenty of $$$ for shopping!
Cycling the City - marvellous way to see the sights If you are partial to cycling the city, a great way to get around and not wear your legs out. The city has bike stops almost every 500 metres and most street corners. Put your credit card in the booth and subscribe for a temporary pass from 1 up to 7 days. You can then pick a bike and cycle off into Parisian horizon, the cost is free for first half hour then 1 euro every half hour. If you stop and change your bike before your half hour is up then you can cycle all day for free. It's brilliant.
