River View on Quai Voltaire

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 27, 2012

We stayed the Hotel du Quai Voltaire in or around 2000. It looks to have been upgraded since then. I still remember the friendly and helpful receptionist and the barman. Our girls had a triple that overlooked the Seine, and the Louvre across the river. Our room was not quite as nice overlooking an interior chimney. ;-( Many famous people have stayed and/or lived at the hotel including Oscar Wilde and Sibelius.

Unique Quality: A five minute walk to the d'Orsay

RUDE! RUDE! RUDE!

I had wanted to stay at this hotel for many years. I reserved the room with email correspondence.
I had requested a room on an upper floor, for a view of the Seine and Louvre. I had also confirmed that WIFI is available. At first, the rate was confirmed at 130E then it changed to 138E with no explanation.
Upon arrival, we were given a room on the 2nd floor, no explanation or apology. Then I came back downstairs to inquire on the WEP key for the WIFI and was told it was inop for the weekend. no apologies, nothing.
The room was marginal, at best. The bathroom was newly renovated and very nice.

I would NOT recommend this hotel when there are SO MANY in the area that are better and the staff is warmer. GO SOMEWHERE ELSE!!!!

Unique Quality: great view. that's ALL!

Directions: St Germaine at the Quai Voltaire

A 4th floor room with a (small)balcony looking across the Seine at the Lourve - what's not to like? Tubs & showers - big tubs, comfortable rooms and helpful, English speakers at the front desk.
Adequate breakfast facilities either Continental or Faux-English. I'd stick with the cafe au lait & roll if I were you.
Come in late & want a night cap to take to bed? the desk man will become an instant bartender.
Need a part for your camera; the desk man will draw you a map to get to the right place with the best price.
One caveat: if you go to bed early and are a light sleeper,the street noise may bother you.

Unique Quality: It's not slick; if you want a Best Western you have come to the wrong place.
It is 'homey' ,even a little shabby (but genteel) around the edges. The 17th Century building has been a hotel for roughly 150 years. Previous guests include Oscar Wilde, Beaudelaire, etc. Pissarro's painting of the Pont Royal was painted from a 4th floor room according to local tradition..

Directions: if you are a tourist it's exactly where you want to be. Just down the river is the Musee Orsay, across the river is the Lourve, a couple of blocks upstream is Notre Dame. Easy walk to Rodin Museum and Maillol Museum (Foundation Dina Vierny).

Room With A View Doesn't Have to Cost Alot

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)

I have heard of this inexpensive hotel for years. You can reserve a room with a Seine river view for alot less than hotels that don't have a nice view. I was hoping to stay here, but the negative comments about the traffic noise discouraged me. However, I have learned that the noise is not apparent if your room is on a high floor.

Unique Quality: The hotel has a new website and the rooms look nice for an inexpensive hotel. However, the most attractive quality about the hotel is the Seine river views from your room (if it's on the second floor or above).

Rates are very reasonable at 105 to 120 euro for a single and from 120 to 128 for a double/twin with triples going for 155 euro. They charge 8 euro for the continental breakfast.

A Room with a View

Hotel Quai du Voltaire has the decided advantage of being directly across the Seine from the Louvre. The hotel is definitely dated and worn, but for the price, our room and view during the Christmas Holidays, couldn't be beat. We had large french doors that opened to a "balcony" which you could not go out on. But by sitting there on New Year's Eve, we were able to enjoy the relative warmth of the indoors while watching the festivities in the city below.

The room was small but clean. And the bathroom had a nice shower. The staff was not terribly helpful and seemed to prefer no actual communication with us. There is a petit breakfast room downstairs, where a slow service of croissants and coffee could be obtained.

Unique Quality: Because of it's location on the Seine, the hotel can be both noisey and bright. When the Bateaux Mouche boats when by at night, their enormous spot lights would light up the entire room.

The closest metro stop, at Musee d'Orsay, was about half a mile away.

Directions: Directly across the river from the Seine
