Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 18 July 2012

We stayed here for 6 nights with a toddler. For Paris, it's the expected small size of the room so it was a bit tight for the 3 of us, but we were out most of the time anyways. The room itself was clean and there was ample space in the bathroom. The cleaning staff did a great job everyday of maintaining the room. There is air conditioning in the room, unfortunately it was fairly cool in Paris, so we didn't end up using it. Great location as everything was in walking distance (about 5 min to metro). The staff was English speaking and available 24 hours. They were very helpful as they would draw maps and were accommodating for the toddler (when we arrived they gave her some books to look through while we were waiting for the room). I did not try the breakfast (they have two options (7 euro for light breakfast and 13 euro for the full breakfast) as there was bakery nearby which they suggested and was much cheaper. They also have a honesty bar (you are expected to pay for drinks) and free fruit on the main level. My only improvement would be that for the price you are paying, I would expect that you would at least be able to get one free drink/night (ie. coffee, although they did have bottled water in the room) and a croissant in the morning. Price wise for the quality it is good value compared to other hotels in the same location. Would definitely recommend this hotel for future travellers.

The express breakfast for 7€ includes a nespresso coffee, bread butter jam nutella etc, croissants and pastries, and an orange juice. The full all you can eat buffet for 12€ has eggs, cheese platters, cold cut assortments, yogurt assortments, cereals, fruits, fruit salad, fresh pressed juices, cakes, muffins, toasts, and more!. We hope to have the pleasure to welcome you again next time!

My and my boyfriend spent 3 nights at hotel crayon. The lobby has a great feel and the whole hotel is very unique. The location is great, 10 minutes to a very trendy part of paris. 8 minutes away from the metro.
The elevator is very very small and can only hold one person and a suitcase, we took turns getting to our room! The rooms are all different colours and very entertaining! VERY small if you put to suitcases in them, we had to keep our room quite tidy. The walls are quite thin and you can hear everything.
Staff is helpful but DO NOT order room service. Took them 40 minutes to bring up a 19 euro salmon platter with a stale baguette.
Overall it is a nice hotel for couples!

Room Tip: Fifth floor has no lift to get to it. Get a lower level to avoid waiting for the elevator every time...

Dear Ali, We apologize for the problem with the room service, we work with an external company which is why orders take at least 30-40 min. We have transferred the complaint to the company and will get back to you, as we strive for irreproachable quality in each guest service. Could you please contact us back to make up for it?

My family of 4 (from Georgia, USA) stayed at this hotel in July 2012. The staff was incredible, location was fantastic and rooms were very clean.My daughter arrived from Spain with an infection. The maid walked us to a doctor's office to find us aid. She took time out of her hourly paid job and immensely help us get medical aid.
The location of the hotel is very central to all the sites of Paris. Many eateries within a few blocks. The overall location was absolutely perfect. The rooms are small but that is standard for Paris.The room was very clean and comfortable.
I highly recommend this hotel. We had a fantastic vacation!

My daughter and I spend four nights here last month after I chanced upon it on hotels.com and read the good reviews on Tripadvisor. What a fantastic find! The hotel is in a great location - a few minute's walk to the Louvre, the Pompidou Center, Les Halles, and lots of other points of interest. In fact, we only used one day of our two-day Metro card, because it was so convenient to walk everywhere. The decor is funky and fun. The wallpaper in the halls is unlike any in any hotel I've been in, as is the lobby. Our room was small, and the bed did take up most of the room, but 1) hey, you're in Paris, you shouldn't be spending that much time in your hotel room anyway, and 2) it was the most comfortable bed I've slept in in a long, long time. Seriously recommended!

The men and women who staffed the front desk were extremely helpful whenever we had a question or needed anything. They all speak fluent English, which is nice as well.

We didn't eat the 12 euro breakfast, opting instead to go to the cute little boulangerie/patisserie around the corner for delicious pain au chocolat and a cup of tea for less than half the price.

All in all, a great find. If you like boutique hotels, I would strongly recommend Hotel Crayon!

We've just spent three nights at this quirky boutique hotel and absolutely loved it. From the moment we stepped through the door the stay was perfect. The hotel is In a great location close to Metro and the Louvre with plenty of good restaurants/cafes nearby.
We were made to feel really welcome and nothing was too much trouble. There is a small lounge area adjacent to reception where you can help yourself to drinks - the bar is run on an honesty basis, which is a nice touch. You can even select your own choice of music to listen to as you relax. Free Wi-FI too! The room was not huge (which is usual for Paris unless you pay mega bucks) but very adequate. It was not cramped at all. The decor was really funky. Bathroom was cool too. Two bottles of Evian provided every day and gorgeous shampoo, conditioner etc. We had breakfast in the hotel on one morning and food served was of good quality. Recommend this to anyone visiting Paris - we will definitely use this hotel again!!
