“Good location...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 November 2011

We were on a family vacation with four grown adults. Because we all like each other so much, we searched for QUADS/FAMILY ROOMS. Bretonnerie had a family room . On the website, however, it wouldn't allow us to click the four-person room. After searching other locations (and coming up empty), we came back to Bretonnerie because they had another room that also accommodated four people (it was a 3 person room + rollaway). We booked it. It was the top floor room and it perfectly would have suited three grown adults. With four people, we certainly made it work. The rollaway fit in fine - but please note - if you're tall people (like we are), you may want to hold out for the four-person room - as this room had SLANTED ceilings and LOW BEAMS. The room was beautiful, many windows, etc.... The bathroom was HUGE, totally acceptable for four tall Americans :). It had two sinks, and a tub... NO SHOWER HEAD (but a detached hand-held sprayer like shower head....)

The front desk staff spoke primarily French. They were friendly and helpful - but also very French - so don't be alarmed when they're not impressed that you don't speak their language...

The area was lovely, many wonderful French cafes (and a Starbucks - where they DO speak English :)). There was a laundromat across the street - which was SUPER nice as we were at the tail-end of our trip (and clean clothes)... We walked everywhere along the river. Great location.

Would I / we stay there again... yes!

My husband and I travelled to Paris in Sept 2011. Rick Steves recommended Le Marais as THE AREA to stay in Paris, and he was right. Very trendy and local. Excellent vibe, cool shops and restaurants and not many tourists (opposite of the Left Bank which is bursting with tourists). The hotel staff was friendly and helpful. I would give them an A+. Don't waste your money on the breakfast at this hotel. It is terrible and expensive. Plus, you want to do what the French do and hit up a local neighbourhood cafe and order une tartine and un cafe au lait and people watch for a good 45 min. The rooms were tired and old. They were clean and quite spacious for Europe standards so that was good, but, the bathroom was mouldy and we had NO HOT WATER for 2 full days! The staff were doing all they could to fix it, but we were only moderly compromised for this massive inconvenience. While I loved the convenient location, the staff and the price (cheap for a Paris 3 star), I will not likely stay here again.

Room Tip: I think you would want to upgrade to a nicer room then the basic if you are staying here.

We enjoyed our first stay in this small hotel in the Marais area of Paris (4th "arrondissement"), just steps away from the Centre Pompidou, the Quais of the Seine, and a short walk from the Place des Vosges. For less than 150 Euros per night, our room on the third floor was small but cozy and comfortable, with a large and modern bathroom (featuring a large tub but no separate shower). Our room featured a good mixture of character and modern amenities, with lovely exposed beams in the ceiling showing the age of the building, while the throughly modern windows blocked out all street noises. We would have wished for a bit softer towels, and there was a bit of mold in the corner of our tub, but the convenience, charm and value of this hotel made it easy to overlook these details. We will be happy to return.

This hotel has an excellent location.The Marais is a wonderful area to stay in. You can walk to most things. Notre Dame, San Chappelle, Latin Quarter, Louve and even the Marais is a wonderful area to walk around, great achitecture. There are loads of restaurants and shops in the area. The Metro is about 4 blocks away at the Hotel deVille. It is a very active area at night. especially weekends because of the huge Gay presence.

The staff is very friendly and helpful. They are genuinely concerned about their guests. They will help you plan your Metro routes and provide touring suggestions.

That is not to say that this hotel does not have its warts. First, it is not air conditioned. Secondly, not every room has a shower. Some have a bahtub with a handheld shower. This was our case, and it does present a challenge. But isn't travel about experiences. However, the room was large by Paris standards and was able to accomodate our suitcases. The furniture is somewhat rustic. Do not expect a flat screen TV.

They offer a breakfast in the basement of the hotel (very unique cavelike decor) which covers most of your basics for 9 1/2 euro. They even have a machine that squeezes oranges. Kids love it. Various breads, pastries, yogurts, some cheese, meats, cereals, coffee and tea.

To conclude, when I return to Paris this hotel will be my first choice.

We finally got a room after planning our trip in advance - short-term travelers will be lucky to get a room. And there is a good reason for this. This historical inn oozes charm in one of the most lively neighborhoods in Paris - Marais - a mix of hipster, gay, Orthodox Jewish and trendy. Walk out the door and you have so many restaurants, cafes, shops, museums and beautiful architecture to tempt you. Reception was very friendly, there was a computer in the lobby for free internet, and the room was spacious and clean with old world features like wooden beams and creaky floors. We loved it. My partner told me not to review this place - it will only get more difficult to get a room... Oh well, too late.
