A themed hotel worse than any hostel

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 2, 2007

We had a disasterous stay at this 'hotel'. The hotel was terrible - a disgrace, and its more embarassing that I learnt of the hotel from good reviews on the internet. It's a themed hotel in Montparnasse. Avoid. Ignore ridiculous reviews from first-time tourists to Paris that elevate it to such a high rank. The name is the Hotel Nesle. It was not much better than a hostel, the room was freezing cold, no proper heating, with a blanket that resembled a sheet. There was no television and no toilet. The toilet for our floor of the hotel was located on a plateau above the stairs, requiring Indiana Jones-esque technique to arrive. There was no breakfast, no place in the foyer to relax, indeed no foyer whatsoever, and what is worse, the 'reception area' was guarded by a dog that resembled a wolf. The lady of the hotel was extremely rude to us, making jokes about my wife's french (her french is fluent) and she made jokes about us, where we were from, etc. derogatory remarks that would offend anybody.

The next morning we complained about the room, said it was freezing and walked out - leaving ourselves with our pride intact.

Prime location and friendly staff. Suggested Hotel de Nesle to a staff member. He came back singing its praises. Five minute walk to Notre Dame. I did not know that from rooms on the top flor one can see the Eiffel Tower. An excellent location and the bistros in the arrondissement serve up some of the best cafe and croissants. If you get a chance order a "Croque Monsieur" or "Croque Madame" for a quick lunch.

Unique Quality: Location is hidden yet in the center of Paris.

Directions: Take the metro to Odeon and cross over to rue Dauphine. Not an easy place to find but with a good map it is easy enough.

Loved this quite hotel

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 3, 2006

Loved this hotel quaint little hotel with just 20 rooms, I stayed in hostels the other nights so this was a nice treat without spending too much. The staff was pretty friendly and helped us when we had questions about where to go ect. It is a great location withing walking distance to Le Louvre, La Seine river, river cruises ect.

Unique Quality: The room was clean, and nicely decorated in a Egyptian or Morracan theme. No t.v., didnt notice if there was a phone, perfect time to catch up in your travel journal! Stayed in the Antinea room. There are bathrooms one every floor something I thought might be a problem, but there were only 3-4 rooms per floor and we hardly ever saw anyone else there so it was not a problem. But they are traditional hole in the floor type..but on on 1or 2 floors there are regular toilets so we usually ran down to use one of those. There was a shared shower that was really super nice tiled walk in shower that was really clean, I didn't wanted to get out! Costs have gone up just a little since we were there 75euros for 2 people withour a shower 100 with.

Directions: St Germain Area, not far from Pont Nuef, Le Louvre and La Siene

Historic & Quirky *6e

by written on April 25, 2006

Unique Quality: You need to see the pictures of the rooms on the website to get an idea of the kind of quirky, bohemian haven this hotel is. The hotel is named after the street, of course, which is, in turn named after Tour Nesle, which was part of the 1210 Philippe-Auguste city wall. The highlight of the hotel lobby are the dried herbs hanging upside down. Each room is named and decorated individually on historic themes, with amazing paintings on the walls.

Paris's best Rive Gauche hotel home!

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 16, 2004

It describes itself as a hotel but it's closer to a pension/home away from home. Inteliigent conversation in the dining area. Bring in your own food to cook and your own wine and enjoy the ambiance of travelers' tales and hotel staff who know everything there is to know and can speak English too. Located close to the Sorbonne and close to Shakespeare & company...and well, it's the 4th arroundisment! I felt at home--and it cured me of homesickness. Reasonable cost $42 Euros for a single. Cash only! Reserve!

Unique Quality: location, location, location ! that's it. but to be able to save money by cooking in the kitchen...that means alot.

Directions: take Metro for the Sorbonne or St, Michel

Hotel de Nesle

by written on August 25, 2002

Single: About 50 to 70 euros. Double: About 70 to 100 euros.

Unique Quality: For everyone who drooled over the small hotel where Lonely Planet host Justine Shapiro stayed during the Paris episode, here's a chance to enjoy the same Bohemian charm at an affordable price. Hotel de Nesle has 20 rooms and each is uniquely decorated in a Paris fashion. Justine slept in the Moliere room. The hotel even has a small garden.
