The room had a tiny bed, with poor quality pillows, it was the worst nights sleep I have had in a long time. To make matters worse, the room had no windows only double doors out onto a balcony shared by other quests. To feel secure we chose to lock the balcony doors, but then had no ventilation and the room got very warm. Also, the hotel seems to be on the busiest juntion in Paris, with the balcony door open, you are kept awake all night by delivery trucks and the endless scooters driving along the street outside. The price cant be beaten, but when I go again I will pay the extra and stay somewhere nicer

My room was big enough for me, unfortunately without wi-fi, just TV. In my opinion, it is a simple hotel with good price (considering prices in Paris), very good location (near Bastille), so close to the métro (which is great). Friendly and warm staff. No other facilities, but you have to consider your are paying for a 2 stars hotel, so it´s not bad!

The doors are very heavy and difficult to open when you are carrying your lugagge, also very noisy. You can hear all the hotel rooms by night, great entertainment, but no sleep. The WiFi internet must be supplied in the room in any hotel especially if you area in a first world country. In general an old hotel with very little manteinance and no service attitude.

I had been to the same hotel about three years before; I guess since that time there had been no renovation or others - and thus it lost a lot of its charm and quality. Especially the level of cleanliness has changed a lot ... As a non-smoker I had to suffer a lot in the room full of smoke-smell ...

This hotel is very, very poor. Tottaly dirty. The rooms, walls, stairs, etc... The elevator has capacity only for two people withou luggage or one people and one luggage. The smell into the room is tottaly nonsense. To sleep on it it was necessary to use one spray and to wait 30 minutes (minimum) off, and after to try to sleep. Impossible to sleep with the smell. the nights were terrible. I feel myself stolen by the value that I paid and for what the hotel offered.

But still everybody with good sleeping habits can easily sleeps well! Staff are very helpful and friendly.

We compared the "actual" scenario with the images published in the site. We were dissapointed as we were told that the room was ready at a specific time and when we were there, the room was still not ready. We had to wait another 20 minutes. In addition, the name of the property was also not the same in which that it made us confused on the location. We had to ask a bystander the location. The floor of the rooms were not cleaned daily. The property is NOT comparable to what is published on the web.

Good location right next to the metro station, with lots of services right next to it (supermarket, pharmacy, café, McDonald's restaurants...). Room was a bit shabby and worn down but still comfortable and clean. You could hear everything happening in the hallway inside the room, but thankfully not what was going on in other rooms! Staff was not the most professional: there was a fire alarm at night when we were there, and they never explained properly what was going on, only joked about it. Not a complete disappointment, but have stayed at better places for the same price and in the same eighborhood.

No pillowcases, but receieved one and finally two when asking for them. Overall, very good location, nice restaurants nearby, nextdoor to Metro. I suppose Paris is expensiv and you get what you pay for. But a little freshen up wouldn´t hurt. Travelled with my daughter 26 years old.

We felt that the room was rather dusty but the bathroom was very well-maintained. The winding stairs had a musky atmosphere too. It would be ideal if the faulty lift was repaired as hotel guests had to carry heavy baggages up to their respective rooms. Nonetheless, we were very thankful for one particular receptionist who helped us carry one of our luggages to the third storey despite his apparent old age.However, we felt that the provision of breakfast was not value for money as the selection and quantity were very limited.Overall we were happy with the stay as it is very conveniently located.

My friend and I had some trouble finding the hotel, simply because the sign does not say "Résidence Voltaire." Instead, it says, "Hipotel." While we were there, the elevator was broken, but unless you have a large suitcase, it should not be a problem. The location was superb! It is next to a café, just past McDonald's, and you can see the metro exit/entrance from the door of the hotel! It is literally one/two minutes, depending on how fast you walk and what floor you happen to be on, from the Voltaire metro station. Perfect for those who want to see the sights of Paris and use the metro!

Bathroom smelled all the time if we didn't have the window open and the shower curtain was broken so water got on the floor every time we showered. There was a private party on Saturday that went all night and kept us awake all night. Not person staying at hotel but nearby residence in that back of the building. Lastly, the lift/elevator was broken the entire stay and we were on the 5th floor.

We had three rooms, with one being on the street side and very noisy. All rooms were very basic, clean enough for crashing in, and they met our needs, ie clean, very close to a metro, etc. The elevator was not working while we were there and the staircase carpet badly needs to be cleaned. There is a great little place directly next door to eat. Service there, provided by waiter James, was super and the food was good with plentiful servings. A perfect spot to eat and drink after touring sites all day. This place BARELY makes my 2 star minimum, due to noise and cleanliness issues. However, you just can't beat the price for a room in Paris, and the location was superb! No bugs. When the bathroom light didn't work the gentleman at the desk came up immediately to replace the bulb. I would stay again.

We stayed here for 3 nights in December. The room was ok for a short stay but if you are staying longer you might want to pay the bit extra and be a bit more comfortable. The beds were made every day and towels changed. The location of the hotel is excellent. There is a metro station right outside the hotel. The surrounding area was welcoming at night and there is a macdonalds on the corner where you could get a coffee after a long day sight seeing. There is a tobacconist next door and a supermarket over the road. The hotel staff were very pleasant. Would definitely stay here again if only staying for a couple of nights.

I had a wonderful experience at the Residence Voltaire. Above all I value the great service of the people who work at the reception and manage the hotel. It is, of course, a modest place to stay. But, the unusual hospitality of the people who work there makes the whole difference. I was travellling alone during the first days of my vacation. My friends joined me later. They came from South America and they stayed in room 211 and were very happy with the arrangements. I stayed in the sixth floor and the only uncomfortable thing was the elevator: it was too small. The hotel is right next to a nice cafe/restaurant and a few meters away from McDonald's. Also you are close to the store where they sell tickets for the Metro and Busses.The entrance for the Metro Voltaire Station is in the corner. in front of this place is the stand with Newspapers in different languages. Toward the left side of the entrance is the best part of Voltaire Boulevard. There are some narrow streets (to the right side) that I felt were not safe if walking alone at night. The rooms were modest but have the essential things. Hot water, heating facilities, clean beds and towels, phone, etc Olga was one of the nicest ladies that came to clean the room. Priceless. And with a welcoming smile. Above all, I would recommend this hotel because of the service. Each one of the employees went beyond their duties to help me, and later,they also helped my two friends who joined me. RIAD is the name of a very knowledgeable receptionist. The best. He can solve any problems you may encounter right away in a very warm and friendly manner. Besides, he provides all types of tips on how to navegate the city and make arrangements for theater tickets, musseums or more trips with a friendly smile. The only problem was that every receptionist works there for only two days a week, so we were waiting for him every time. But again, all employees of this hotel knew their job. Also the manager/owner was supervising close

After seeing some of the comments I was a bit worried about this place, but it was fine. The staff had excellent English for when my French ran out and were friendly and helpful. The room had been partly redecorated and was big and had a great view of the Place Leon Blum. The bathroom was a bit tatty and although it had been well cleaned it looked kind of old, so that there were dark patches and mildew spots that had got ingrained - not dirty but just a bit elderly and in need of regrouting and a lick of paint. Voltaire is slightly out of the way and a pain of a Metro station to get to from eg Montmartre, but walkable for the Marais etc. When I was there in Oct 08 there was building work going on so was hard to spot but basically it's just behind McDonalds, with a smallish entrance next to the cafe at the left of the McD's entrance.

We only stayed in Paris one full day. Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. We had a 4th floor balcony room facing onto the main Boulevard Voltaire. We expected it to be noisy but the windows shut out most of the noise and the view of the city was great. We were very happy with our stay apart from the fact that there was no hot water the evening we arrived...and as we went sightseeing early next morning we were unable to shower until the end of the day...which wasn't nice has we had been travelling from Manchester, England by coach for 18 hours. The location of the Hotel was fantastic for us. McDonalds just next door, and the Metro right outside which took us to the Eiffel Tower within 20 minutes! We were going to see Cyndi Lauper at Le Bataclan, which was just a 15 minute walk down the road...perfect!! Will definately use this Hotel again!!! :)

We stayed in Voltaire hotel from 20 to 25 of September Location: The best part of the hotel was it very nearby to the voltaire station. Voltaire station is on metro 9. Though to reach here some change of metro line is necessary, it is easy to do so. On the location wise it is great. There are shops nearby for food and brevarages. Space: The drag of the hotel is rooms. It is quite small. When we upacked our bags a bit, little space was left to move around. Bathrooms: These are even smaller. Just enough to get you through. Its just usable.But since the sewage pipe run through our bathroom it felt noisy at all time. They supply towels. Beds: Are good just to take enough rest after a whole day travel and they change it as necessary. Atmosphere: Friendly and as expected. Facilities: Internet was suppose to be provided, which we did'nt get throughout our stay. Overall 3/5

I guess it was the most horrible hotel i have ever stayed at in my life. The rooms were dirty and unpleasant, it was smelling smoke in our room. Our luggage got stuck in the elevator which was size of a bean seed, the wash room facilities were of a simpliest kind. Obviously the hotel was under renovation and until the light in the tunnel could be seen there is still a long way to go.

the best of the place is it's location, which is pearfect after a long,exhausting day of Paris hiking, just a few steps from metro, and market close. the worse is the noise outside-for myself it was no trouble, but my husband was really disturbed at nights. for that price - really good offer, but 700m futher is IBIS hotel, which is more expensive in week, but weekends price is comparable with "voltaire" , with much butter standard, however, it was of course full!

We've stayed in Paris for 10 days at „Residence Voltaire”. It was our first visit to Paris. Everything was excellent: the hotel's position was great, especially the subway station located right in front of the hotel that enabled us to reach our destinations every day The hotel's staff were discreet and efficient, also they were very kind to us. Although the room was quite small, it was comfortable and clean. The site www.venere.com is very good, and we will use it on the next vacation.

Anche se l'accoglienza è stata molto buona, le camere lasciano molto a desiderare. Pulizia praticamente invisibile, abbiamo dovuto elemosinare addirittura le bustine monodose di docciaschiuma. Il phon l'avevano addirittura rubato dalla camera, quindi disagio anche per quello. Comodissimo perchè a due passi dalla metropolitana, e ben servito nelle vicinanze di supermarket e molti altri servizi.

This is the best value for money that I have ever experienced in a hotel. The price quoted (and charged) was far less when booked on line and the onlslight inconvenience was some necessary redecorating that was going on for a few days while we were there. We stayed for a month. What more can I say. The staff are charming and helpful. They speak good English but were willing to tolerate our bad French and even help us with a little practice conversation. We will be going back.

Be warned - This hotel is grubby and the rooms are very, very small. The bathroom had mould, the windows leak and although the rooms are cleaned every day, it's as minimal as the maintenance carried out on the property. I've stayed in some basic places, but this one was disappointing even for the low tarrif. My recommendation would be to pay a little more and enjoy your stay, Paris is after all a magical city.

The Hotel had a group of Student and they make a lot of noise, since the hotel has no real damper on the door they slam all the night, one of the bedroom was smelling mildew and had no window to ventilate, the stair way is a real fire hazard safety concern and the elevator is tiny, two small person at the same time maximum without luggage,the clerk was doing his best to accommodate and the breakfast beverage wasn't a match to the bread/croissants, the heater was working either and we had to ask for electric one, the location on the other side was perfect.It's wasn't a pleasant experience.

We went to Paris to see the sites. The service at the hotel was very good and very friendly. The rooms were nothing special fine place to sleep, thank goodness for the windows it shut out a lot of the noise although it was still noisy and the walls are very thin and anyone walking by, talking or opening very noisy doors are heard very loudly. I couldn't have a shower for the 3 days I was there as the first 2 days there was no hot water and the shower was a hand held and very difficult to use and there is no drain in the bathroom so when the water went out of the shower there was nowhere for the water to go. The room could use renovations

Prix internet supérieur au prix affiché, après négociation, l'hôtelier nous a offert les petit-déjeuners. Salle de bains vétuste, pas de savon, pas de tapis de bain, pas de gobelet, propreté douteuse. Chambre sans aucun attrait, donnant sur une cour lépreuse, pas de voilage alors que beaucoup de vis-à-vis, pas de rideau occultant pour la nuit. Aucune insonorisation entre les chambres, on suit la conversation des voisins. Cet établissement ne devrait pas figurer dans votre catalogue.

The Residence Voltaire Hotel has a very convenient location for tourists, as it is a few meters away from a subway station. Our room was a clean one and they changed the sheets and towels every day. The hotel staff has been okay, although, be prepared to speak french! So I guess I would stay there again.

Rooms are very tiny, and not every day personal changed our sheets, tovels or clean the room, but the location is very pretty, the hotel is in one of the most nightlived zone of the city. The metro stop is directly outside the hotel, and the personal is very kind.

A noi quindi è andata meglio che a altri. Avevamo una matrimoniale al primo piano con una bella vista sul viale. Escludendo dunque uno scarafaggio e il bagno che perdeva acqua dal soffitto, le tubature a vista e lo scarico che si inceppava, il prezzo è ok e è in una posizione strategica x muoversi in città

The Residence Voltaire is the simpliest tipe ofhotel you could find. No luxuries at all, but it's an good place to give some rest to your tired body after a day of turistic visits. The sheets and towels very clean. The best of all is the situation, right over a metro station, very good communications. The neighbourhood is very nice and safe. I will back there becoause the price is great to Paris.

This is the only place we stayed in Paris, so I'm not sure how it relates to other Paris hotels, but I found it to be rather dirty and the bed and shower totally lame. All I really need in a hotel is a quiet and clean place to sleep and clean up - also the neighborhood was rather shady, though the proximity to the metro was great!

Cramped and a bit worn, but it will give you a shelter for the night. The neighbourhood is a typical, not-so-touristy part of Paris, with easy Metro access to whereever you'd want to go. There might be more charming budget options, but this was where a room was available, when I needed it, and it was OK. If you are really squeamish about a few cracks here and there and the occasional moldy spot on the bathroom wall, you should probably look for something else, but then again, it's Paris, you get what you pay for.

I didn't had "petite dejeunet" because i read on the site it wasn't that good...in any case, the quality/price ratio is very good, especially for the location. In the morning, hot water was a little bit too "warm" in my opinion, but honestly acceptable

You get what you pay for with this hotel: I paid €190 for a double room for 4 nights, and I was happy with it. Ok, the decor leaves something to be desired, the rooms are fairly small and the walls are thin, but the staff were very friendly and helpful, the place was spotlessly clean and the location was great. I really enjoyed being away from the tourist shops and in a residential area - there are plenty of metro stops nearby and it's only a few mins walk from Pere Lachaise. I'd definitely go back

This is the second time i stayed in Paris and the accomodation which i selected through internet is really disappionted compared to previous stay. The hotel is really in very poor condition, untidy, very dirty.I only can rate this hotel as hostel instead of hotel.I stayed for three days and the room is only clean once. If not because of the location of this hotel is very near to metro station,i would not make such big mistake to choose this hotel.

The place is fine if you're just looking for a place to sleep. The rooms are ok, the bathroom was really small, somewhat dirty and had a leak. Really tiny elevator and overall the place was old and kind of unkept. It was worth it for the price. Location isn't great but you have a metro station right outside.

The rooms were quite small to be called a family room as it was on the reservation. However, when comparing the price/value factor, it was really worth the mony paid. The location was excelent. Metro station if not, almost in front of the door with all services within a five minute walk. I would definately stay at this property again.

Gran ubicacion justo frente a una terminal de Metro !!!, no son muy comodos los cuartos pero por el precio que ofrecen estan bien, el baño esta decente y el servicio es bueno sobre todo durante el dia, barato e incluye el desayuno !, un poco complicado si viajas en coche ya que no tiene estacionamiento y las areas cercanas estan constantemente llenas pero encontrandole lugar te olvidas del coche por el Metro, es dificil moverce en Paris en coche si no conoces bien la ciudad, sobre todo la entrada y la salida a la misma.

Die Lage des Hotels ist gut. Das Ausgehviertel um Bastille (Rue de la Roquette usw.) ist sehr nah. Die Metro-Station ist vor der Tür. Leider ist die Ausstattung der Zimmer (vor allem das Bad) schlecht. Reinigung gerade noch ok.
