We just needed a hotel in Paris for a couple of nights on our back from Luxembourg, so we decided not to rent an apartment. We found it on Venere.com, and are happy to have it on our list of reasonable hotels in Paris. This is a new part of Paris for us, known as New Athens because of the many Doric etc columns around. It’s just below Montmartre and seems to be a lively neighborhood, with a number of bars and restaurants. We ate at Caffe Jadis one evening—-see here https://vivsfrenchadventures.wordpress.com/2015/05/05/paris-and-another-new/

It’s well situated, near St Georges Metro (line 12), but you can also walk easily up to Montmartre, or to Opera in the other direction. The Notre Dame de Lorette Cathedral is not far away. The hotel is also really close to a wonderful market street area, mostly on rue des Martyrs—with a patisserie, boulangerie, fromagerie, fruits and vegs, Nicholas wine, a Carrefour etc.

The hotel is in a charming old Haussmann-style building that was renovated in 2012. Rooms are smallish, but perfectly adequate and comfortable; ours was overlooking the small courtyard, not the street, so noise was not a problem.

A quirky, but fun, touch!

Curved carpeted stairs lead to the first floor, then curved stairs higher up. There’s a small lift (elevator) too—that seemed a bit temperamental! Reception area is bright and cheerful, and reception staff very helpful. Free wifi throughout.

Breakfast is offered in the cellar, but we didn’t take breakfast so I’m not sure what was offered. But, there is also a free soft drinks/coffee bar with snacks in the lounge most of the day. We loved the pink sheep in the window of the lounge, which is also decorated with other nice touches!

We had to leave very early one morning for the airport, so the hotel arranged a shuttle mini-bus—very convenient and quite well-priced.

We booked through Venere.com, but you can do it directly too:
