I love this beautiful little hotel. The staff were friendly and incredibly accomodating with our touring bicycles. Any questions asked, were answered with a smile.

We had an excellent stay. I asked for bottles of both flat and carbonated water on arrival and this was taken care of as expected. The room we had was clean, with enough space to put luggage and still walk around freely. Little outside noise and no trouble with hearing other hotel guests. We were also very happy with the airconditioning as it was very hot in Paris when we were staying over. Staff was friendly and helped us with printing some documents we needed during our trip. They speak and understand English well. The Metro station is nearby although it's not the most convenient of stations as a starting point for discovering Paris.

We stayed for 8 days, the concierge were all very friendly, personable, and very accommodating. The superior double room was tastefully decorated, and had a great floor plan to allow for two people with lots of luggage. The location is also perfect with easy access to the 8, 3a, and the 6 Metro Lines. We'll definitely consider staying here again for future trips. Thank you!!

It was really nice. Me and my wife spent 2nights in this hotel and the bed was good, the standard room was little (but fine to be in Paris) and the breakfast ... enought to be happy! The concierge and the staff were kind and helpfull.

Nice hotel, but very noisy. The metro noise isn't bad, it's the thin walls and floors that are the problem. Trying to sleep at 1am on a Wednesday night and other guests are keeping me up. Other times I was woken up by loud footsteps from above. They do provide earplugs but I don't want to risk sleeping through a building fire. My "deluxe room", which is said to be bigger is small and the bathroom is tiny, but this is Paris and their prices are reasonable. There is a small desk in the corner which was nice to have. The location is great - on the eastern edge of Paris but great access to the 8 metro line which goes very central as well as the 3 tram is right here. Quick and easy to get around. I would probably skip the breakfast if I were to stay here again, but I can't remember what it cost.

Room on the street side are a little bit loud - ask for room facing away from the street and on higher floors because of metro running under hotel. Staff are extremely friendly, public transportation is nearby, supermarket across the street and some good restaurants also. Wifi and TV works good.

Friendly staff, nice and clean. Room smaller than expected but still lovely. Left me cider and a note for my birthday which was a nice touch.

Absolutely beautiful room with an outdoor space and luxury bathroom. My only complaint is that on the first floor you can hear the Metro pass by under you.

Location is great, right outside subway. Problem is, I was staying on the first floor and you can hear the subway underground, plus my room is next to reception, so you can hear the movements of other people late at night and early morning. Very annoying, considering they falsly advertised their rooms as sound proof. Wouldn't stay on the first floor if you plan on staying here. Plus you can hear the water when someone showers/flushes the toilets in the wall...so not appealing. Place needs some serious renos.

A nice hotel with friendly staff. In rooms on the lower floor, will find you can hear/feel the rumble of the Metro now and then, as well as some road noise, although the road is fairly quiet at night. The Metro station you can hear is right outside, which makes it easy to get into the city; there's very little that's more than a couple of Metro rides away. Breakfast is available but the boulangerie/bakery across the road is well worth checking out, too.

A wonderful stay at a brilliant hotel. Very well furnished and cleanliness levels of the highest standard throughout. All staff welcoming, friendly and helpful. Rooms on the smaller side; but as expected in a large city. On the further side for central Paris but good public transport links. Would highly recommend to anyone

A great experience. The hotel is quaint with intimate rooms. The staff was friendly, most speak fluent English, and helpful. Some have made comments about the rooms being small, but I have had no problem with my room. Take the elevator once, and your room will feel large (world's unofficial tiniest elevator, but very cool). I agree the bathroom and toilet room (yes my room had them separate), were on the smaller side, but definitely manageable. I should also mention my room was an exclusive double so I probably have a room slight larger than most. Looking at the fire plan, it appears each room is a different size so it just depends what room you get. The hotel has a classic feel to it, but the rooms are updated. It is located conveniently next to the metro so you won't have to walk far at all. The breakfast buffet is good although a highly rated pastry shop is located directly across from the hotel. If staying in Paris again, I will definitely be looking at Hôtel De La Porte Dorée. The price was too good to give up, especially for the quality.

Perfectly located for tourists! Beautiful little hotel for couples to have a romantic visit to Paris. Easy access to Metro. Was there on market day and the stalls were a great experience with great foods and products. Three years ago and still have good memories of this hotel and had to give them a great review again. Will definately visit them again! Pity they are so far away from Cape Town, South Africa... :-)

Stayed a few years ago and loved it. Clean, affordable, and a helpful staff. Close the metro. Also try bistro 102 around the way for a nice spot for dinner.
