Fodor's Review

A noble hôtel particulier in the quiet, soigné, and chic Mazarin quarter offers modest but impeccable lodging, with pretty, comfortable little rooms that have been spruced up with boutis (Provençal quilts), Les Olivades fabrics, quarry tiles, jute carpets, and hand-painted furniture. The house-proud but unassuming owner-host works hard to please.

Hotel Dispute

Based upon Fodor's recommendation we booked 6 nights in October 2013. Upon arrival we were told our rooms were on the top floor, the 5th. Also, there was no elevator. When we asked about their advertised air conditioning, we were told they had turned it off "because it was October". When I mentioned it was 80 degrees outside he was unfazed. My wife is 69 with certain health issues. I am 64. I explained that due the climb and heat we would be risking

my wife's health if we stayed. The hotel ignored these facts and insisted that we pay for all 6 nights due to their cancellation policy. I offered to pay for two nights as a compromise, they ignored this offer. Luckily the local tourist office found us a room at Le Concorde. They have an elevator, each room has air con and their location is just as good as the Dauphins. Unless you are a sherpa and or a desert dweller, avoid the Dauphins.
