Fodor's Review

Despite a Lilliputian elevator that doesn't serve all floors, this small, simple hotel just off the 17th-century Place des Vosges draws a loyal clientele. The Louis XIII–style reception area evokes the Old Marais with oak-beam ceilings, rough-hewn stone, and a mix of rustic finds from secondhand shops. Many of the standard rooms still have their original beams and stone walls, as well as modern, if tiny, tiled bathroom. Accessible by a narrow staircase, the lone top-floor

room, the hotel's largest, has a whirlpool tub and A limited view over the rooftops. Other rooms are considerably smaller but cheaper. Fans are provided in summer, and Internet access is available, but not reliable.

Rude, rude, rude

Conveniently located, yes. But amazingly rude reception. Our Jewish host, life-long Parisian, was insulted by anti-semitic comments about the neighborhood by the front desk clerk. Buyer beware.

Kind and Caring in a Great Location

I stayed with two friends in January. All had separate rooms. Found the staff REALLY helpful, especially for the friend with severe nauseau/jet lag. Best location. Convenient breakfast. Met great other travellers, including the anthropologist from Papua New Guinea who added to the delight. I have been to Paris over 20 times. If I am not renting an apartment, I stay at the Hotel de la Place des Vosges.

good value

3 of us spent 6 nights there in Feb. 03. Had the top floor room, which had a double bed, a twin and a cot. a little shabby, but very good bed and bedding. fluffy white quilt. bathroom large, immaculate and modern. one window with a view of bastille. must carry luggage up narrow spiral stairway. would suggest they upgrade lamps and hang a picture or a mirror in the room. we had breakfast brought to room each morning - a real plus. overall

a good value.

For Classical Music Lovers

Yes, the rooms are tiny . . . but they are clean and pleasant. You can open your windows and hear classical music being played at the Place des Vosges a half block away. The staff is wonderful, happily making suggestions for your day and helping with any arrangements you need. Breakfast is served in a friendly manner in the delightful little gallery filled with antique furniture. We highly recommend it. The location certainly can't be beat.
