cancellation policy in paris hotels?

Can anyone tell me about cancellation policies in paris hotels? Are they the same as the US (basically no penalty if before 6pm day of arrival or up to the entire stay's cost)? We're looking at hotel Minerve and the plans are subject to change. Thanks

Just as in the States - every hotel has it's own rules. You need to ask the hotel.

But in Europe in general, you face a lot more penalty for cancelling than many places in the States.

Thanks - I used google to find a good website on the Minerve (not the hotel's own) and found that they have a one night policy.

The Minerve does have its own site (which was actually no. one on my Google list):

http://www.hotel-paris-minerve.com/

However, it does not state their cancellation policy. There is a link to e-mail them if you want to confirm right with the source.

There is no uniform policy (is there one anywhere?). Call and ask. This is not a question a message board can help you with, unless someone happens to show up here who just had a cancellation policy issue with this same hotel that just got resolved one way or the other.
Call the hotel and ask.

It seems that the smaller hotels in Europe have stricter cancellation policies than the chains, for obvious reasons. The hotel I stay in in Paris, e.g., requires notification of cancellation a week in advance, or they charge for one night.

When I cancelled for this past May, I asked that they send me a return email confirming the cancellation, which they did.

Cancellation policies vary for each hotel whether in Paris or elsewhere. Before reserving a room the cancellation policy needs to be addressed. Also when you email or fax a hotel for rate information the hotel usually includes the cancellation policy in the reply.
