    Hotel with a crooked staircase


    Finding a place to stay in Paris should be simple enough, right? Well, after countless searches, emails and checking availability of hotels we were willing to say in, we decided on this hotel. A two star hotel in Paris, it is centrally located in the 6 arr. The hotel is clean, has no elevator and the room was a decent enough size.

    Only a few blocks from the River Siene and Notre Dame, D'Orsay and a few other landmarks, we knew we had choosen the right place for us.

    My stay here was during my visit in February, 2004.

    Unique Quality: There is a lift that allows only one person and one bag at a time. The staircase is so croocked you think you will fall to the side from the incline and the buffet breakfast made this hotel an interesting yet comfortable place to stay.

    Directions: Saint Germain des Prés

    Great Location, Clean small hotel


    Hotel D’ Lille is one of those inexpensive 2-star hotels that make great places to stay in European cities. A place that gets mixed to bad reviews on and wonder what those people were thinking/expecting in their hotel to review this place so badly. As you walk in the front door you feel like you are truly in a Parisian hotel. Small, yes. But with a big heart. The check in experience was easy. Neither of us speak French with any fluency. But we had no troubles here. Then came the first encounter with the “bad list” from TA: The small elevator where only one person and their bags may go up at one time. I got in the elevator with our bags and pressed the button for the second floor. She walked up the couple of flights to meet me as I was getting out. This elevator is what it is, an afterthought to a building that was built before they were there to be put in. So you go ahead and get the one that works best and is easiest to install. Nearly all Parisian 2-stars have similar elevators. But she quickly told me about the second item on the “bad list.” This was of course the crooked staircase. I loved this staircase. It wasn’t the greatest but it added to the charm in our opinion.

    Finally entering our room, we were quite happy. It had a double/queen bed that took up most of the room, a couple of wardrobes, and its own bathroom. Everything we needed in a room.

    Directions: Just down from Musee D'Orsay.

    Tiny, but 1-block from the Seine and Louvre!


    Hotel de Lille

    Although Paris has an extensive and widespread public transit system, to save even the time on transportation, instead, it is more reasonable to stay in a hotel at the center where most toursty places are. Plus, we prefer to walk around.

    Thus our strategy was to stay a few days in one east centrally located hotel and visiting the places in the east side near Museum Louvre, Latin Quater, Notre Dame etc), then few days in a west centrally located hotel for that part of the city (Eiffel Tower etc).

    Hotel de Lille was the one we stayed the first.

    Parisian hotel rooms tend to be smaller. If room size is under concern, try to stay in 3-star hotels. The size, location and service/amenity of hotel determines the 'star' rank of a hotel. Higher star ranked hotels provide more luxury service and usually larger rooms. Since this was our first trip to Paris, we were only experimenting. We wanted to stay in a couple of hotels, but booked too late. Thus the two hotels we stayed in Paris were both 2-star hotel, but centrally located.

    When I did my homework searching for hotels in Paris, I ran into a rough chart, relating the room size and hotel star rank, e.g., average room size for a 3-star hotel would be 9 m^2 (definitely with many exceptions), but cannot find it now.

    Many people said there was no need to book a hotel in Paris ahead, since there are so many of them. Each hotel has its price explicitly displayed either outside of their doors or in their lobby. Government rated 'star' plague also hung on the wall outside of the hotel. If you do not like the price of hotel A, you can always go to next one.

    To save time wasted looking for a hotel, it is reasonable to book ahead. Making reservation either online via email or hotel website reservation system or professional hotel booking system are very convenient and easy.
    600 FF/double room with ensuite bathroom including 2 breakfasts.

    Unique Quality: The best character of this small hotel is its location.

    It is within walking distance to major toursity places such as Musueum Louvre, Museum Orsay, Notre Dame, Quatier Latin (and Luxemburg Palace and park), and Seine River from where you can take a water taxi - Batobus to Eiffel tower and other major toursity places in the west central part of Paris.

    The owner Michael and the front desk lady Mme.Marie (photo) are very friendly. Mme. Marie speaks very good English.

    However, it is small in size. First of all, the elevator is very small, barely can hold two people (we are not big). I had to put one of our suitcases in the elevator (then no room for me!) and walked upstairs waiting for the elevator to get my luggage out.

    The room was VERY small. It has a double-size bed, a chester, but then not much space left for you to open your luggage.

    The room was normally quiet, with occasionally motorcycle noise down on the street. Our room was on the 4th floor.

    For those of you who are used to taking shower with in a shower with either a door (doors) or a shower curtain, you have to think about it before you book this hotel. Our ensuite bathroom (very clean but small) has a bath tub with a hand-hold shower head, but no shower curtain.

    Walking along a small spiral stairway, you would get to the dining room for breakfast. The breakfast was simple but good, croscent, bread, milk, fruit juice, and so on.

    Directions: Centerally located one block from Seine River. Across the river, it is the Louvre Museum.

    Within walking distance, on the same street, there are

Re: which hotel would you choose

I'd choose the Hotel de Lille.. for me that's a nicer neighborhood, but of course I can't compare the two rooms.

Re: which hotel would you choose

by matfzapofqq

Both are excellent choice referred to their location, but a slight preference for hotel de lille (quieter).

Re: Re: which hotel would you choose


The hotel de Lille is near the corner of rue de Lille and rue de Beaune. When I walk in this area (between musee d'Orsay and St Germain) I always have a look at this hotel which seems traditional and very decent.

Hotel d'Antin is located in an area devoted to banks, insurance companies and other offices.
Less quiet.
