Reviews - Residence Henri Iv Hotel

Our room was robbed

Have just returned from this hotel and had a bad experience. Our room was robbed during the night. We booked one of the hotels self-contained rooms, however despite having two beds the room had only one key. This made it difficult for us (three friends) to have different agendas. IT meant leaving the room open for friends to return. Because of the difficulty with the key and the fact our room was robbed I would not advise that you stay in this hotel.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Residence Henri Iv Hotel

Excellent family hotel at a reasonable price (for Paris!).

from PLPZ
The location affords one a relatively peaceful night's rest and combined with the pretty view from the balcony over the small garden opposite, all in all, this one of our best stop overs.

The area (Latin Quarter) is very lively with plenty of reasonably priced restaurants close by.

The rooms were medium sized, well serviced and still retained their original Parisien charm.

Reception was friendly and efficient. Continental breakfast was served in our room at a price you couldn't refuse... and the coffee was good!

Secure parking was available close by.

We will definitely visit again.

We stayed at the Hotel Residence Henri IV (Two adults and our teenager [14]). It was a very nice size. ..two rooms (small but still roomy by Paris standards)..a little kitchenette with a microwave and refridgerator. The only thing missing was a coffee pot (we bought a French Press and it solved the issue)...The room was kept very clean..and we mostly had breakfast brought to our room which was juice, coffee, and pastry or was plenty for us..we aren't big morning eaters.
The area was quiet, and we really had nothing to complain about. The staff were helpful and the trains were nearby.

highly recommended

from djkr
We booked a double room for 110 Euro/night via which was much less than the hotel's rack rate. On arrival we were upgraded to a small suite on the 4th floor (room 42) which was a bonus. The bedroom was a fairly good size for Paris & in a good state of repair. No problems with street noise which can often be a issue in Paris. There was also a small sitting room with table, chairs & a sofa-bed. The bathroom was well-appointed and with plenty of hot water. Another bonus was the small kitchen area which had 2 hotplates, a microwave, fridge and sink.

The hotel is very well-situated, about 5 mins walk from the metro and lots of good restaurants within a few minutes.

Service was helpful & friendly.

We would definitely stay there again.

Small and friendly

from Adamos
THis place is very well located to access the latin Quarter of Paris and is conveniently close for a short walk to Notre Dame and on to the Louvre and Toulieres Gardens.

It is essentially a charming 6 storey town house with two rooms on each floor. I had a Superior room which was most satisfactory. Bedroom, lounge[ette], kitchenette and bathroom. Decor was pleasant and in good order., and not ,thankfully, matching pattern everywhere !

The breakfast was adequate although I would suggest you bought your own croissant ,confiture ,coffee etc from one of the many food shops nearby and made your own in your kitchenette- the Salon for breakfast, although clean tidy and OK is in the basement and a bit ...lonely.

The chap on the front desk was most helpful and courteous in his manner. One felt inclined to rebook here if wishing to be this side of the river.

satisfactory experience

from StChris
Location was good, in a cul-de-sac off Rue des Ecoles so little traffic noise. Walk to the Pantheon and Boulevards St Germain and St Michel.
Room had kitchenette facilities that we did not use.
The safe was tricky so we didn't use that either.
Note there was no A/C but there was a fan.
We did not eat breakfast at the hotel.
Overall acceptable accommodation.


from A TripAdvisor Member
The Hotel Residence Henri IV is not to be mistaken for the other Henri IV, which is located at the upper end of Rue St. Jacques, some 500 meters to the north, and which is part of the rather americanized Île St. Louis Imperium, so to speak. The Residence Henri IV is a very small hotel, located at the Rue des Bernardins. It has only 12 rooms, two on each of the six floors. The higher, the better, but only because of the light and the view. I was lucky. I had room 62, 6th floor, which was excellent. Unusually large for Parisian standards, two small balconies, two large french windows, large bathroom, small kitchen with fridge and microwave. Very well appointed room. A view from the windows over the rooftops eastward, towards the Institut du Monde Arabe. The personnel at the reception is very nice. There is a simple breakfast (€ 6), which I didn’t use. I stayed here from august 29 till september 2, partly on a reduced tariff, and paid € 100 for the first three nights, and € 195 for the last night, in september. The normal room rate was given as € 195, which I wouldn't be able to pay if I would stay, as I normally do, for a week. The best thing about the hotel is indeed its great location. The hotel is on the dead end part of the Rue des Bernardins, just off the Rue des Ecoles. Pantheon 5 minutes walk (uphill), Seine 10 minutes (downhill). Notre Dame and Sorbonne in easy walking distance. Metro Maubert at 200 meters, line number 10, Austerlitz- Auteuil. Only disadvantage: you will probably always have to change lines, if you really want to go anywhere. The quarter around the hotel is very village-like, the more so as it is in fact situated on a small hill (Montagne St. Genevieve), and it is much more pleasant than the area around St. Jacques, which is heavily tourist-infested. It has a lot of normal shops, a small market near by – also at place Maubert - and small restaurants, where Parisians themselves are very present. The neighbourhood is of course the Ouartier Latin and students are everywhere. If you can get this hotel for € 100, (like I did in august) it is a real bargain. 195 seems to me to expensive.

Most enjoyable

from Parksville
We stayed for just two nights with our daughter in a two roomed suite.
The decor was spectacular and the whole building was what one expect to see in Paris.
The location is ideal for sightseeing and the staff are very efficient and friendly.

Peaceful and central

from jojomartin
We stayed at this hotel for a long weekend and weren't disappointed at all.
The great thing is the location. It is in central Paris but not in the typical tourist traps, rather in an area where Parisians live. At Place Maubert (1 or 2 minutes' walk) there was an open-air market with the finest food you can imagine: fresh fish, sea food, vegetables, fruits, cheeses, flowers. It made us want to move to the area! Better still, it wasn't touristy, this was where normal people went to buy their produce. We also had our breakfast at one of the bistros here after reading the comments on the breakfast at the hotel at Tripadvisor. (So we can't comment on the hotel breakfast.)
A few steps away from the market: the Seine and Notre Dame etc. Everything you want!
We had two rooms, numbers 10 and 20. (With hindsight, we could have had a larger apartment to save money, we paid 160 € a night.) Room 10 is a bit dark (1st floor) whereas room 20, being higher up, was lighter. We had small kitchenettes with microwave, fridge, stove (with crockery but no wine glasses). One fridge didn't work and was defrosting (water everywhere) but the staff were quickly and politely at hand to sort everything out. (This was the only time we needed the staff and they were really very helpful and friendly).
The hotel is in a cul-de-sac and is very quiet. This is any advantage; we could sleep with the window open. However, the rooms are smaller than they seem on the website, but adequate all the same. The ceilings were full with stucco, the furniture was reproduction (not antiques) but tasteful. The wardrobes were a good size: they didn't fill the rooms!
The staff did speak English. However, we tried to speak French (badly!). They took the time to listen and reply slowly in French, not falling into English to make things quicker. We would stay there again!

Perfect Anniversary

from travel-paddy
Took my husband off to Paris for a suprise wedding anniversary trip. We were both physically wrecked from work & this was the perfect retreat! We just needed to switch off and get some serious R&R and the staff here let us do just that. We are not your typical tourists - up at the crack of dawn each day, more like the crack of lunchtime!! Anyway, regardless of what time we left the room it was always perfectly serviced when we got back. The staff were so friendly & no matter what time we came in at they always had a 5 or 10 minute chat with us to see how our night went.
We had a beautiful top floor room with an ajoining living area, a tiny kitchenette off that & full bathroom & also a lovely balcony overlooking the quiet street. We stood out there every evening & had a glass of wine before we went out. Very Parisian! Near by there are some really typical little brasseries, patisseries & wine shops. Lovely to meander around.
Be careful though - one day my husband arrived at a cafe before me & was given an english menu (he doesn't speak French)... when I arrived & asked for the menu in French I was given the french menu & the prices were completely different! The same dishes were €3-4 more expensive on the english menu. Had the same experience with the street artists who did the caracture drawings - difference of €20 there! (if you're Irish you will understand this.. "I'm Eddie Hobbs & you've just been ripped off in Paris!!!")

Anyway, can't comment on the food in the hotel as we never had it but everything else was just lovely. Loads to do nearby & you are only a street away from the Seine. Gorgeous! We will definately be back!!

Very nice and comfortable hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
We were very impressed with the price/quality ration of this hotel. We booked one of the two room suites and felt it was very comfortable and definitely worth the money. The hotel is well maintained, has a good location and has very friendly and helpful staff. Definitely worth going back again!

Top Local Tips for Paris

Chez Rene, Boulevard St Germain A typical Parisian brasserie, with waiters in long starched white aprons and lots of woodwork. Standard brasserie fare but nicely cooked and presented. Impeccable service. A taste of real Paris

Winter in Paris Beautiful, crisp, clear days and nights with no queues for tourist attractions and usually cheaper accommodation. Not too cold in December for this Aussie family! The cold weather makes you look forward to getting inside the galleries and shops too!

Cheaper than I remembered, more convenient than expected We found getting around by taxi - with 2 young children and 2 adults - surprisingly cheap and comfortable. The first time we have tried this in Paris and will do so again.
