I chose the hotel because it's right in the heart of things - five minutes walk to the Louvre - and also because of its concept. Make sure you're happy with the latter before you book - you're not going to be happy here if you want a more formal atmosphere, but I liked its laid-back style. Equally the design...

The staff were incredibly helpful and went above and beyond to accommodate us after a very cold and wet couple of hours running. Exemplary customer service throughout our stay, thank you. Great food, lovely room and a fabulous place to stay. I...

Hotel Crayon is very centrally located in Paris and that is what you are paying for: the location. As per all the other reviews, beware that the rooms are tiny! We saw four different rooms whilst trying to resolve all the issues we encountered when we checked in, so I say this from experience. Hotel Crayon would definitely be a...

Dear adrian7896, Thank you for your review on Tripadvisor. I am sincerely sorry to see we did not meet your expectations. A few points should be clarified.

After a very lengthy journey from Melbourne, Australia I was thrilled to arrive at this gorgeous little hotel, just a few minutes walk from Châtelet Les Halles. The staff were so friendly and stored my bags until my room was ready. The room itself was small (to be expected in Paris) but perfect for what I needed. Comfy bed, lovely...

It was a very pleasant stay. The location is really convenient within walking distance from many museums bars and restaurants. On the downside, it is a bit noisy from the streets around.

Great location, very comfortable and cosy. Different from other hotels, it is a very good concept, being original and friendly space and ambience. We loved being there, had a relax time and staff very friendly, specially the lady doing the morning shift.

“Room 301 was very small. One side of the bed is against the wall with little space on the open side. But room enough for my self and two large suitcases, altho the suitcases had to stay closed in order to have room to walk. I did not have a problem with this, as I'm there just to sleep. My only, only complaint was the internet did not work in my room on my laptop, so I had to go down to the lobby to use my laptop. My phone was ok, and I'm sure I was using data roaming while on my phone in the room. The room was clean, and as I mentioned above, the shower was glass-enclosed so everything stayed dry, and the water pressure was amazing and very hot!”
