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. First, we were never informed that you would be three people in the room. There is no way our team could have guess this fact, especially if you do book the room through...

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. The rooms are very modern and colorful which really cheers you up. I liked especially the big bathroom. The room was also big and clean. The staff was...

After spending some time in London, we decided to stay in Paris for a few days and found the Hotel Crayon. This is not luxury living by any means, but our stay was so pleasant that I had to write a small review in gratitude. Paris is a city built for pedestrians, and the hotel's location made it an incredible...

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.

Really cute artsy hotel. Check in was really fast and the room was comfortable. I loved how close it was to the museum, restaurants and bars. I only stayed here one night due to my flight being delayed and I was really happy with my choice. Due to its proximity to everything I was able to walk around and explore...

I chose the Hotel Crayon Rouge because of its proximity to the Louvre. I will return to the Hotel Crayon Rouge whenever I visit Paris because of the front desk staff, the breakfast, the cleanliness, the design, and the cool LED lights in the shower. I loved this hotel! It is friendly Paris at its finest.

From the check-in to the check-out we had an excellent experience, it exceeded our expectations. It is a small hotel, with small rooms but it has what you need, and there is enough space for 2 big baggages. Bathroom and shower are clean. Wifi always working.

Quirky small hotel with good facilities, really close to Louvre and metro. Also close enough to an RER station that lugging your bags is no real issue. 24hrs reception and staff happy to have a chat and help you out with anything you might need. Lovely. Would definitely return!
