Hôtel Henri IV Review
This 17th-century building, which once housed King Henri IV's printing presses, offers few comforts or amenities, but you'll be hard-pressed to find a more central hotel for this price. The narrow staircase (five flights, no elevator) looks like it still belongs in the 17th century; it leads to simple rooms with no TVs or telephones—renovations have added bathrooms with showers in all but one room. The payoff is a location overlooking the oasis-like Place Dauphine, just a few steps from the Pont Neuf, Sainte-Chapelle and Nôtre Dame. For a genuine Parisian experience of what a local apartment would feel like in terms of interior conditions and square footage, look no further. If you desire luxury, space, and wireless Internet, head elsewhere.
