The rooms are nice, have air conditioning, the breakfast is lovely and the staff is charming.
Great value, perfectly located and charming!

A great hotel

from PeterMEdinburgh
We chose La Perle after reading the Tripadvisor reviews and we were not disappointed. This is an excellent hotel located in an attractive area of Paris that is close to many of the major sites. The staff are very friendly and helpful and will ensure that you have an enjoyable stay.

We stayed in one of the superior rooms that was located at the back of the hotel overlooking the courtyard. It was very quiet (even on the night when a rock band was playing in St Sulpice square less than 200 metres away) and it is worth paying a little extra for these rooms (they are larger as well as quieter). There are some good local restaurants (ask the staff for recommendations), but these are lively French bistrots rarther than an intimate dining experience. You will be rubbing shoulders (literally) with the person at the next table.

The hotel breakfast is expensive for what is provided and I suggest that you find a cafe. A previous review recommends Pauls which is a short walk away and is very good value. I would certainly stay here again and will definitely recommend it to friends.

s Great Location

from CAtoCO
We stayed in the Hotel La Perle for eight nights in June, and really enjoyed the excellent location. The hotel is on a narrow one way street, with an awesome choice of many small, excellent restraunts within 2 blocks. The area is quiet in the morning, yet very active by afternoon and evening. Metro stations are also quite convienent.
We had a nice room facing the courtyard that was very quiet and clean. We ate their breakfast each morning, which although is not cheap, we enjoyed it very much. The hotel staff was helpful when ever we had any questions.
We took the metro to all the sights, did some english language walking tours, and enjoyed our week in Paris very much.

Wonderful stay at La Perle

from antoniodicassano
My wife and I stayed for 6 nights at the Hotel La Perle in June 2006. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hotel is situated in a wonderful area of Paris (St. Germain area), and sits on a street with lots of activity - restaurants, shops, bakeries - and easy access to the metro. The hotel itself is a gem, the courtyard is a quiet sanctuary from the hustle-and-bustle of Paris, and the hotel staff is VERY NICE (warmest compliments to Anya and the others at reception, and the boys at the bar). We happened to be there during the early rounds of the World Cup, watching it on the TV in the courtyard while sipping wine and beer with the other hotel guests - very nice experience. The room itself was clean, and large (we had one of the bigger rooms, on the top floor). This hotel is a very friendly place, for Americans and everyone else. When we return to Paris, we will definitely stay at the Hotel La Perle again.

Another nice stay at La Perle

from ladyandtramp
We really like La Perle, although it was interesting to hear the reaction from friends from the US who were travelling with us, who were not as impressed. Paris hotel rooms can be smaller than US visitors are used to, can have traces of smell of cigarette smell even though they are no longer smoking rooms, and you can sometimes hear street noise. That being said, La Perle is one of the best and minimising all of these and providing a fair price for the amenities offered - especially if you get one of their larger inside rooms.
I'll challenge you to find friendly staff in this part of Paris.
We would stay here again.

s Marvelous

from Carrie_Onbaggage
We are rating La Perle "Excellent" base on our perception of wonderful "value for dollar". There are fancier hotels than this 3-star property nearby if you don't mind your credit card bursting into flame. We are aware that there are also slightly LESS expensive hotels within a few blocks (e.g., La Madison) but THIS sweet, small hotel on this relatively quiet one-way street 1) had better-than-average size, impeccably clean rooms, 2) is soooooo quiet, ESPECIALLY if you request a rear-facing courtyard room (we loved #41 with our bathtub window opening to the skies -- see pics), and is located in a FANTASTICALLY safe, central & upscale Left Bank location (St. Germain des Pres) - an easy walk to the Louvre. Also, Hotel La Perle offers good room discounts in its off-season, which runs from approx. November through 1st week of April (we were able to save EUR 35 per night on our standard double room). Staff were responsive, English-fluent and very polite, but do not expect effusive or warm -- it's Paris, France...not Paris, Texas ; ) . Force yourself to speak whatever little bit of French you have in a humble & apologetic way, and you'll be very well-received.

Tips: Have a drink at Bar du Marche a few blocks from La Perle & enjoy the constant human sideshow from your little table at the 4-way intersection (two of the cross streets are Rue De Seine and Rue de Four). BREAKFAST at "Paul" (a cafe/patisserie chain) opposite the Bar du Marche is the BEST, reasonably priced hot or cold breakfast around.. DO NOT be fooled into eating at Cafe le Procope under ANY circumstances (worst over-priced meal we've had, ANYWHERE) and find your way over to Restaurant le Coupe-Chou on Rue (de) Lanneau in the Latin Quarter for superb, traditional French food at a moderate price -- or to D'Chez Eux on ave. Lowendahl, also in the 7th Arr,. for something more formal & upscale but still great traditional food at a fair price. See the forums on Chowhound. com for other dining ideas from insiders. Laissez les bons temps rouler!!

Fabulous hotel!! Fabulous neighborhood!! Fabulous trip!!

from lconner001
A friend of mine recommended this hotel as she's living in Paris now - and it was excellent!! The hotel was close to three metro stops and walking distance to Notre Dame, the Louvre and some excellent shopping. There are also 5 excellent restaurants within a 5 min walk - from some great Italian restuarants to beautiful white linen table topped Parisian restaurants. I wouldn't stay any place else upon my return!!

Excellent Paris Hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
I was pretty nervous as a woman alone staying in Paris, not knowing the language, and never having been in Europe before. I did a lot of research before booking my 5 nights in Paris at the Hotel La Perle. I am so glad I did.
As other reviews have said, it's very, very quiet-at least if you have a courtyard room as I did. One night a block away there was a huge outdoor concert blasting. With the windows closed, I could barely hear a thing, and I'm very sensitive to noise.
All the people at the desk spoke excellent English, and were extremely helpful.
The room was very clean, and very pleasant to stay in.
The location was terrific, tons of restaurants within a couple of blocks (I particularly recommend La Boussole), an English bookstore a block away, a safe area to walk around at night. I walked with ease to the Louvre, the Musee D'Orsay, the Rodin Museum, the Luxembourg Gardens.
I recommend this hotel highly.

Simply Wonderful

from travelluvr
The Hotel La Perle on rue des Canettes is a charming, quiet, clean hotel with a wonderful staff. I was very nervous about staying here- only because with so many choices I wanted to make sure I found something perfect for our 20th anniversary. I did!
We arrived at 11am- exhausted but excited for our adventure and were allowed to check right in- I had let them know ahead of time and that helps- they had my email in a little folder with our name on it! We went up to our room- which was adorable- simple, cool and CLEAN!! Great AC-individually controlled and again-quiet!! There were only 2 rooms on our floor-we never saw anyone in the other room-no noise above us or next to us. It was smaller than American standards but who cares- you're in Paris- we are tall people- 6'5'' and 5'7" and we had plenty of room- 2 twins pushed together as requested- a double would have been too small. The bathroom was little but modern and clean- 2 windows open up over the tub-very cute! It even smelled clean- not fake smelling. The bedroom had 2 large windows which opened up onto a small courtyard where breakfast was served every morning-13e-didn't try it but it looked good. Drinks were also served on the patio at night- that we did try and loved it! The bartender was wonderful and when we were ready to go he said -"please - one more glass of wine - on me- relax and enjoy"- which we did!!
There was a family reunion going on that night and the hotel gave them menus from the restaurant down the street and they ate in peace and quiet on the patio- it's not an easy thing to do to get a table for 12 in Paris but the hotel was so very accomodating-especially because they had 2 little girls running around!! One night we followed the girl at the front desk going to the restaurant around the corner to drop off an order- very nice!
She gave us excellent recomendations and made reservations for us at Le Petit Cour-amazing! They were more than willing to help and went out of their way- but not intrusive. Just a perfect experrience!
I went to check out the other places I was thinking of staying- Le Regent on rue Dauphine-way too busy of a street and BW Premier Left Bank-funky smell in reception area- moldy. I was so pleased with my choice. This hotel is on a very small side street which is bustling at night with cafes and bars and adorable shops during the day- but no cars or scooters(well very few-its only 1 way)- very very quiet!! We will definitely stay here again when we return with our children next year. They don't have quad rooms but said we could just have the whole floor-our kids are 18 & 16 so that would be fine!
At 140E I feel we had a great value for the money. Remeber- it is not fancy-no ornate furnishings or toile wallpaper-just clean and friendly-but very pretty.
Stay at La Perle- you are so centrally located you can't believe it but yet feel like you are in your own little world! We loved it!!

Vewwy Vewwy Quiet

from A TripAdvisor Member
I'm not hunting wabbits, but I am a very light sleeper. I do NOT like urban noise when I am trying to sleep. One thing I learned about finding a hotel is that if you see that the street is narrow or short, the hotel probably does not have a lot of traffic noise. That was spot on in this case. The street Rue Canette is only about a block long, terminating on a nice boulevard on one side and a plaza outside St. Sulpice on the other. It is narrow and quaint.

I was in a room facing the courtyard, which was pretty quiet at night. They were renovating during the days some of the time I was there, but they are probably done by now. The shower took a little fiddling and a phone call to figure out (you pull on the tap to get the water to go up through it). The a/c worked for me just fine. My travel buddy had the next room. His a/c was not working, but they fixed it same day and it did work.

The rooms were a little plain, but that's OK. I am not there to sit in the room and stare at the walls. The bathrooms were fine. As an American, I find myself to be a real diva about plumbing.

The staff was polite and spoke good English. My buddy loved to start the day with a hearty session of Twenty Questions and the people at the front desk are happy to answer them. One nice thing was a brochure about a few restaurants a block away. We decided to just have dinners there 4 of our days, which made dinner easy to deal with. All 4 restaurants were very nice.

Didn't try the breakfast. It was 13 Euros and I just opted to slope down to the cafe on the plaza and have my coffee and croissant while watching the people go by. That was a little more Parisian than the courtyard experience and half the cost. However, if you are really tired, that kind of thing comes in handy. Oh yeah, I had a small fridge. That was very useful, as I kept my snacks in there for the midnight jet lag munchies.

Given the horrid rate of exchange, my bill (at the off season rate) was not too bad. I think it was a good value considering the fact that it was in the center of town and August.

Top Local Tips for Paris

know your menu You can get by with a smattering of french as most french speak english but they often are uncertain of the translation when it comes to the menu. If you don't want to guess, go for the easy option or end up with something you'd rather not eat (rabbit - pigeon?!) learn the main food names and/or have a phrase book/dictionary available.

Good or Superb Dining Le Procope, La Tour d'Argent, Jardin de La Tour (the last one inAvignon)

Wine Tasting You must try the 'Grand 7' wine tasting experience with Olivier Magny at www.o-chateau.com - 2 hours sampling 7 different wins by a French Sommelier.
