Excellent place to stayfrom KakiGatal
Boutique style hotel with a great locationfrom PhysEd
The hotel itself is spotlessly clean and has been really nicely fitted out in a boutique style. The rooms are spacious enough and have wall-mounted widescreen TV. The bathroom was great and looked like it had only recently been fitted out. It also had a fantastic shower! We skipped the 12 euro breakfast and grabbed pain au chocolats from the bakery on the next corner...
Unfortunately the bottle of champagne I asked to be placed in the room upon arrival wasn't there, but although disappointing this was only a small blemish on an otherwise great stay. That's the only reason it didn't get 5 stars...
The hotel staff were very friendly and advised us on anything required at all times, providing maps, directions and locations of attractions etc... They were also extremely helpful before we arrived. They booked the restaurant I had chosen for our Saturday night which, was just round the corner from the Champ de Mars and Eiffel Tower, so made it very handy to get there afterwards and propose to my girlfriend (who is now my fiancee)!
The restaurant is called Les Olivades and comes highly recommended. It is a very small and intimate, typically French place (they speak NO English, which was a real challenge and great fun) and is seemingly frequented by quite a few locals. It is on Avenue de Segur, just down the side of the Ecole Militaire. We had the menu decouverte for 60 Euros each which was superb.
The only other place to recommend is either one of the 2 'Le Relais De L'Entrecote' outlets in the city. We went to the one on Rue St Benoit (see pics), just off place St Germain de Pres (the other is on Rue Marboeuf). We had to queue for 15 minutes to get in (it was that busy) but it was SO worth it. Read all the other reviews on the web about this place, they are all true. There is no choice (apart from desserts). The first question get asked is 'How do you like your steak cooked' and that's it, you get a waldorf salad, a bread basket and then the best steak ever. Grab a bottle of the house red to go with it as well. The best lunch of the weekend! It's not cheap (66 euros for 2 people with wine and a bottle of Evian), but it's superb and a great experience.
Anyway, enough about the food (I could go on... believe me!) - The hotel was lovely and thoroughly recommended. I booked through the Eurostar website at the same time as getting the train tickets and it was about £100/night.
Highly Recommendedfrom OCragazza
The rooms are small - translated as normal sized European room - but very clean and had all the modern amenities you find in a boutique American hotel, but for quite a reasonable price. Our room overlooked a quaint alleyway and was very quiet. There are plenty of places to eat within walking distance.
The only downside I could really say was that it is a few streets away from what I dubbed as Sex Shop Row. The main street (I think it was called Rue Clichy?) is a row of every sex shop and peep show you could find. It was a bit - ummm - too sexy for me I guess you could say, but once you go up Rue Lepic, you're completely in a different environment (one street makes quite a difference indeed). I never felt scared or threatened at any time passing by the shops, so don't let that deter you.
If I'm ever in Paris, I would not hesitate to stay here again.
wonderful hotelfrom MandaB
great hotelfrom omIreland
Clean, comfortable, good locationfrom marouine
breakfast room, (better take coffee and croissant outside), helpfull staff
The room we had (304) was a comfort room and a very good size. It was a bit short on storage (but fine for our 4 night stay.) The marble bathroom was roomy and clean with a separate loo.
The staff were very welcoming; we didn't once go into the lobby without being greeted.
The situation is great with good but reasonably priced bistros, lovely shops and a Metro stop (Blanche) nearby and Sacre Coeur a short (uphill!) walk.
I have no hesitation recommending this hotel to friends and family and already have!
Le Deux Moulinsfrom theognis
Nice and pleasantfrom Priska
What we loved: the comfortable beds (actually the most comfortable hotels beds we've ever spent a night in apart from those in Singapore's "Four Seasons"!), the spotlessly clean bathrooms, the charming lounge, the international newspapers in the lounge, the friendliness of the receptionists, the flatscreen tv in the rooms.
What we disliked: the poor insulation of the hotel, the lack of radiators - this means if you don't want to wake up freezing in the middle of the night you have to leave the aircon on all night (at maximum temperature and with the accompanying buzz), the fluorescent light of the energy saving light bulbs which completely destroys the rooms' charm, the noise of the garbage van which rumbles through the narrow street every morning at 4 am, the very narrow double bed in one room (so beware, not all doublebeds are the same width), the high charge for breakfast (12 Euros).
All in all still a good bet.
In praise of Le Relaisfrom Thursalming
The location is fine and 'le sex shops' are not a big deal-just walk up the hill to avoid them and find the real Montmartre. Rue Lepic is indeed a wondeful street, full of great foody things. Local restaurants though are mixed and probably worth researching the better ones (the originally titled 'The Restaurant' on Rue Veron being one) and making a reservation on Friday and Saturday nights is a must.
My only slight quibble was the otherwise impeccable reception staff constantly asking if we wanted to book breakfast-was that just being helpful or pushing their product? Either way I would recommend this hotel to anyone.
Top Local Tips for Paris
Les Portes A lovely restaurant at 15 Rue De Charonne off Rue de Lappe. Excellent food including a goat cheese starter and a steak with foie gras sauce. Excellent service. Meal for two (2 apperitifs, 2 starters, two main course, one dessert and a bottle of Sancerre) approx 112 euros. Metro: Bastille.
It's all in the timing If you can, walk from the Louvre to the Arc D'triomphe. We had a lovely coffee in the park in the sunshine and arrived at the Arc in time to see the daily lighting ceremony for the eternal flame at 6.30pm. We then climbed to the top to see all Paris lit up- PERFECT!
Sundays in Paris, most shops closed Do your shopping on a Saturday, if in Paris for weekend. As museums etc are open on Sunday but most shops are not. Marais Jewish quarter is buzzing on a Sunday, as is Bastille market, and the Moroccan markets, mostly fruit and veg, check out Falafel King in the heart of the Jewish area.
