My sister and I enjoyed 9 days in room 506 junior suite. We found it to be very cute, fresh, clean and comfortable. While there is no view to speak of, the location of this hotel is easy walking distance to many great cafes and restaurants. Situated right between Palais Royale and Les Halles, you can get anywhere in the...

Great location in central Paris, in walking distance to Louvre and other sights. Nice staff. The room and bathroom were nicely designed and clean but very small. One of two lamps was broken and couldn't be repaired. My room was located on the street side and very noisy on Saturday night. All in all not perfect but good price/quality ratio...

Hotel Crayon could not be in a better location. Everything you need to explore Paris is within blocks, including the train station. Surrounded by good restaurants, brasseries, shopping on Rivoli, and with 2 bakeries a few minutes away. The reception was very kind and very helpful with everything. Yes, the room 301 is very small, but it was just me,...

Hotel Crayon was lovely. The staff was very kind and helpful. My mom and I stayed an entire week, and we made Hotel Crayon our new little home. It is very little though... Tiny hallways, elevator, and room, but that's what you get for an inexpensive hotel in the heart of Paris! IT was the perfect location—walking distance from The...

The staff, the location of this hotel was perfect. I recommend this hotel to anyone. This is a little boutique hotel that is worth every penny. We would go back for sure and we will certainly recommend it to anyone going to Paris.

My husband and I enjoyed how close this location was to the louvre. It was easy to remember how to make it back to the hotel on foot. The breakfast was simple. We received free breakfast. I don't believe I would have paid for their breakfast for the selection they offered. We stayed in the junior suite of Hotel Crayon...

Love, love, love this hotel. Still charming as before and the location is close to all. Staff are very friendly, thoughtful, and professional. Location is seriously a steal for the price. Love the room with plenty of storage, outlets, and great shower. After all these years, it is still a pleasure to return to this unique, charming, and fabulous hotel!

This is an excellent choise if you are visiting Paris for tourism or for business. It's close to the metro, close to Les Halles, to Le Louvre and all the restaurants around there. The hotel is correct and the staff very kind. I liked the room's decoration. It's really charming with some ancient objects. Nice (and very small) bathroom as...

A boutique style hotel, brand new, in a great position near the Louvre & Pompidou. The room are "parisian style" that means SMALL so you better choose a suite with a lot of space on 5th floor; the price will be the same of a SMALL room in a 4 star hotel in a worst position than this !!

“Room 301 was very small. One side of the bed is against the wall with little space on the open side. But room enough for my self and two large suitcases, altho the suitcases had to stay closed in order to have room to walk. I did not have a problem with this, as I'm there just to sleep. My only, only complaint was the internet did not work in my room on my laptop, so I had to go down to the lobby to use my laptop. My phone was ok, and I'm sure I was using data roaming while on my phone in the room. The room was clean, and as I mentioned above, the shower was glass-enclosed so everything stayed dry, and the water pressure was amazing and very hot!”
