I chose the Hotel Crayon Rouge because of its proximity to the Louvre. I will return to the Hotel Crayon Rouge whenever I visit Paris because of the front desk staff, the breakfast, the cleanliness, the design, and the cool LED lights in the shower. I loved this hotel! It is friendly Paris at its finest.

From the check-in to the check-out we had an excellent experience, it exceeded our expectations. It is a small hotel, with small rooms but it has what you need, and there is enough space for 2 big baggages. Bathroom and shower are clean. Wifi always working. The staff were always willing to help. I highly recommend breakfast, they have delicious...

The hotel is in an excellent location; we walked to the Louvre and other locations. The staff was super friendly and helpful. They suggested restaurants in the immediate area, arranged taxi service when needed, handled our luggage, assisted in the purchase of online tickets for Les Invalides and checked the mass times at the local Catholic church. Interesting decor. The...

Quirky small hotel with good facilities, really close to Louvre and metro. Also close enough to an RER station that lugging your bags is no real issue. 24hrs reception and staff happy to have a chat and help you out with anything you might need. Lovely. Would definitely return!

Hotel Crayon combines a fresh yet quirky interior fit-out with exceptionally friendly and helpful (and multilingual) staff, all at the heart of the 1er arrondissement - convenient to louvre, shopping districts, restaurants and multiple metro stations. Very much appreciated the assistance and flexibility shown by the hotel staff in helping us sort out our return to the airport at the...

Just to be clear, this isn't a review of the Crayon Rouge hotel, as upon arrival I was sent round the corner to its (poor) sister hotel, the 'Crayon'. A pity - the website of the 'Crayon Rouge' read well. Claustrophobic? Use the stairs, the lift is so small, I had to breathe in so that I could fit inside....

Dear FlyPig, Thank you for your review on Tripadvisor; sorry if there were a misunderstanding with your booking. I am a little bit surprised because the room you mentioned is our bigger double room, even larger than the room at Hotel Crayon Rouge. You know that we have other categories in our two hôtels, did you ask for bigger room?...

The hotel was well located. Easy to walk to major sites. Close to different metro and RER stops. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel was close to many different restaurants. The room was very small but that was to be expected.

Friends and I stayed here and were very impressed. The location near both the Louvre and Les Halles is fantastic! We walked everywhere, but it's close to Louvre-Rivoli and Les Halles metro stations. The staff is helpful and friendly. My room was comfortable but very, very small. In my many trips to Paris, I think this was the smallest room...

I really liked this hotel. Very friendly staff, central location near the Louvre, but on a (mostly) quiet street, cool stylish décor. Small rooms, but you're not in Paris to spend time in your room. Nice shower. I was woken up at 6.30 on two mornings by a garbage truck passing, but that's not the hotel's fault. I found the...

A quirky hotel with artwork over every surface. Very near to the Louvre and close to lots of bars and restaurants. We came on by train, it's about 10 minutes walk from the station.
