Nicely updated, quaint, charming, boutique hotel very close to top sites such as Notre Dame, Chapelle, the Louvre, other museums, River Seine, Marais quarter, etc. Metro station is around the corner. Located on a fairly narrow, quiet, cobblestone street mostly closed to vehicle traffic (only an occasional delivery van etc.). An abundance of restaurants and cafes on the street and...

As you have highlighted it, we recommend the Handsome Hotel for friends and couples rather than families because of the room sizes , but we have adjoining rooms for older children and we provide a baby cot for todlers....

Great spot, cool hotel. Smallest lift I have ever travelled in. Shower was amazing. View over the bustling pedestrianised side street was great. Local live Jazz was terrific. Will want to stay here again.

Let's get it out of the way early that the room is small, the bathroom is small and the elevator is tiny. If you're large, like a lot of space, bring a ton of luggage or have that American sense of sizing, you might not like this property. All that aside, this is a perfect little boutique hotel in the...

So I really struggled when thinking what to write for this review, and I will tell you why. On one hand it's a fabulous hotel and on the other its disappointing.

Staying in Les Halles

Neighbourhood Profile
Les Halles
Historically the central iron-clad market of Paris, Les Halles has evolved architecturally since then but the pulsating energy has stayed the same. Now it houses the main shopping mall, which nestles underground surrounded by fast-food take-aways and international restaurants coupled with beautiful churches and the old commodity exchange. Parallel to it are the high-street stores of Rue de Rivoli and just parallel to that the Seine. The area bustles with faces from all continents and all ages at all times of the day. If enjoying high-street shopping with easy access to fast eateries and lively bars is on your agenda, this is the place to go.
