As usual with Paris, the lift was tiny - just room for me and a suitcase. The shower was just big enough for me to get into and I'm quite small. Staff were very welcoming and friendly, any problems were dealt with instantly and with full apology. I could hear everything the people in the next room said and it was also quite noisy outside but it's very good value for the price and location.

We arrived 3 hours prior to check in time at 3PM so we decided to wait in the lobby for 3 hours because we were exhausted from jet lag. At 3:10PM I had to ask if we could check into our rooms. This hotel has two methods of access to the rooms, a narrow spiral stairwell to all floors and a small elevator measuring about 36 inches by 24 inches. Luggage must be transported one piece at a time to the rooms with this elevator, I had to make four trips. The stairs were considered to dangerous to carry luggage upstairs. The stairs and elevator empties into a narrow 36 inch wide hallway that connects to the rooms and the stairwell. All rooms are located in the front side of the building. Needless to say, the noise level was very high. Our room had the cracked toilet seat(ouch) mentioned in a separate review. The lights in the stairwell are on a timer circuit. It was annoying to have the lights go out constantly every time we used the stairs and had to push the switch on every floor or face a very dark stairwell. There was no effort to clean the street entrance to the building it was always very dirty. If one is willing to accept these conditions I can say that the hotel has a good location with many eateries and a short walk to the main tourist sites. I did not feel the price was satisfactory given the conditions of the building. I cannot stay at this hotel in the future.

Do not stay here. I was expecting a little better well maybe a lot better. The room was hot and they had no fans or AC. We had to keep the window open all night to get a breeze so we could sleep but the street noise was very loud. People talking and arguing till after 2 am. The Bath room was filthy and mold on the shower curtain. The toilet seat was crack in half. Good thing we only stayed one night. We talked about trying to find another hotel and just take a loss. It is not close to any attractions.

Great for the price. Obviously at this price the rooms are NOT air-conditioned, so if you are visiting and the temperatures are in the 30's (like it was when I was there) you may have problems getting a good nights sleep due to the humidity. If you are a backpacker take your rucksack off before stepping into the lift. I don't believe I've ever come across such a small lift, it's tiny!

We really enjoyed our stay. Would stay again. very central. You are paying for location. The hotel is good for couples or single people rooms are small but very clean. Cannot comment on breakfast because we didnt have it. Plenty of bars and resturants around hotel, not far from the Louve and Notra Dame. The hotel staff are friendly and helpfull, always someone on reception. Other comments say about the small lift, it is very small but its common in europe and not a big problem I think. Our room was facing the street so a little bit of noise at night but its because its in a busy area, it wasnt a big deal. I would recommend if you are looking for a good location.

PLEASE NOTE: Hotel Rate DOES NOT include breakfast, if ordering, the price of 11 euro is VERY high for just coffee, croissant, jam & yoghurt.....Cafe's outside are much CHEAPER at 7 euro for the same items.... The hotel would not refund one breakfast as my check out was before 07:00. The room was small facing the pedestrian mall/street but it was quiet, the afternoon has alot of people just HANGING ABOUT.... Taxi drivers DO NOT know the location of this hotel which is walking distance to the rail station Chatelet...

My wife & I stayed for 5D/4N in this Hotel. We chose this Hotel due to the location. We arrived by train to Gare de l'est from Germany . From Gard de l'est, it is just 3 stations apart on RER 4 to Etienne Marcel station. We just loved it as it is very near to Metro & RER stations of Etienne Marcel, Les Halles & Chatelet. Thus, going to all Paris' attractions a breeze. Took about 15mins of each walking to Notre-Dame, Musee du Louvre and Pont Neuf (Seine river boat ride). We stayed on the 4th Floor and yet the wi-fi signal is still good. The Hotel do have a small lift but it is way better than walking up the stairs. Best is the Hotel is sorrounded with varieties of food (especially halal for us). Not to forget the shoppings (Forum les Halles is just 20 steps away) Although it is in the happening area but on the 4th Floor, it is rather quiet. Not to forget the staffs (Patrick & Valerie) are superb and very helpful. Will definitely return here on my next trip.

The only good thing in that hotel-perfect position. Room has all necessary for sleep in night, but you will listen everything what happened in neighbor rooms and on the street. Very cold also. I have found old socks under the bed. Also when my friend had joined me in second day, it was very big problem with second towel, blanket, pillow even room was double. But if you need just bed for sleep in night and have earplugs - it is not bad choice, on morning you are in the center.

I stayed here for two nights. The hotel was perfect for single bachelor like myself or a couple,yes it's pretty basic but the location is very very central and perfect to get around all over Paris. Hotel staff were very friendly and very helpful and had no problem speaking English. I have stayed in hotels all over the world and this is definitely value for money if you are on a budget. I would definitely recommend staying here honestly and will come back in the future.

The best thing about the hotel is the location and price (reasonable for paris) The staff were quite pleasant the room was not a superior double, it was a very cramped dark room with a very uncomfortable bed.

After reading all the comments from previous guests, we weren't surprised when we got there. The room was very small. It was funny trying to maneuver around each other. It was difficult trying to arrange our luggage to use the space wisely. It was cold. Management seemed to ration the available heat. The place could definitely use some updating, but we already knew what to expect. Location? Excellent!

I have not been able to find a better location for the price. Although the immediate area has a lot of cheesy bars and is a bit dirty its not far from some really nice places.The staff are helpful and the room is clean enough, although it could do with re painting and new furniture (but then the prices would probably have to go up). The lower price rooms are more 2* than 3* so consider this if choosing the cheapest option.

The size of the room was o.k. for one or two people; I booked the two people room with one queen size bed. The room was in the third floor (#203), therefore the noise from the street was there, I had the windows closed overnight. The location is very convenient, either for business (metro station Chatellet/Les Halles with PER Railway) as well as for pleasure and evening activities. I definitely will return for a pleasure trip.

Only needed room in Paris for one night. This place had right price for one night. Close to RER train from CDG airport so that is a plus. Close to Louve and Notre Dame so this was a plus In general the room reminded me of a college dorm. I did have my own bathroom and it was clean. Room very small and furniture was very minimal. WIFI did work as did TV. Noise outside was an issue...I was on 5th floor but crowds below until 2AM or so very loud, then construction and jackhammers at 7AM. Tiny elevator not big enough for more than one person and small carry on bag. Bottom line, this is a one star dorm room good for single traveler or young couple for a night or two.

The rooms are really small and closets only hold one or two hangers turned at an angle. You can hear the people walk on the cobblestones in the morning. The location is good, right near the buslines, Louvre, and Notre Dame- just 5-7 mins walk. The Hop on and Hop off bus stop is near Notre Dame. Neighborhood was not bad and right near several restraunts and a couple Jazz clubs. The staff was great, very nice, and very helpful. Next time I will probably stay on the otherside of the river though,a little more in price but looks like a nicer neighborhood with more romance to it.

First of all this is NOT a 3 star hotel, no way. Its more like 2 star. The room was old and had stains on the wallpaper. The shower needed a good bleaching and the bed was lumpy. That said the location is excellent and the guy who worked on the desk in the evening was very pleasant and happy to please. I arrived after midnight and received a lovely welcome and he happily attended to my requests (another pillow etc). Also you pay for what you get, it may not be 3 star but its a cheap hotel for this central location.

I went to France by myself and as a single girl, I was worried about finding a hotel in a safe neighbourhood that was close to the major sites. This hotel was fantastic. It was easy to find, very clean, the lady at the front desk was very nice and helpful (and spoke English), and in a good location. 5-10 min walk to the Louvre, you can walk to the Eiffel Tower and Arc de Triomphe (45 min), getting to Versailles is easy as well (45 min via the RER), and the RER goes straight to the airport (CDG). Shopping at the Forum at Les Halles was mediocre (dirty and not my kind of stores), so if you want to shop, Avenue des Champs on the way to the Arc de Triumpf is better (like Robson St in Vancouver). I didn't feel as safe at night, but I was by myself. If I was with someone or in a group, I would have stayed out later. Overall, I would definitely recommend this hotel because of the location, cleanliness, price, and staff.

No hairdryer, no extra bedding, no heating in room, no satellite tv, no noise protection from the rubbish men who came to the street at 6.45am. Minimal toiletries provided, no easy chair, only one chair (hard wooden) in a double room, one pillow on a double bed, no electronic key card - still an old fashioned key you had to hand in. Had to pay extra for a safe in the room and was given a lecture about the cost to the hotel if I lost the key. Noise from neighbouring rooms was loud, even when they talked or use the bathroom. The room was reasonably clean and they did change the towels but this is not 3 star and is very expensive indeed for the standard provided - more like 1 star - I have travelled widely and stayed in a lot of hotels.

This hotel is a typical 2 star hotel in Paris. Its a old converted building were the lift, hallways and stairs take the absolute minimum of space. Its in the middle of a bar and restaurant area only a 2 minute walk from the Forum des Halles metro and shopping center. Noise level at 5th floor was acceptable unless you require absolute silence when sleeping. We where sleeping with our 5 month old baby with the windows open without being bothered by the noise. The lift is only 65 by 90 cm. So a baby stroller with hard bag was not easy to take to and from the room, but the staff was very helpful and allowed us to park the stroller in the small reception area. All the staff was friendly and helpful, giving advice and recommendations upon request. On a general note. Avoid big strollers on the metro, no lifts, few handicap exits and stairs everywhere. It was actually easier to walk the streets.

We stayed on the 6th floor in a clean and spacious triple, high above the street noise that people are complaining about on this site. We loved the room, the service and the location of this little hotel. I can see where the lack of air conditioning could be a major problem during the hot months, but we just threw open the windows and enjoyed the cool breeze and murmur of sound far below on the street. We will stay in this hotel again unless we happen to be in Paris when the weather is hot.

Location, location, location! This was my 11th trip to Paris and was traveling with a friend who hadn't been in 20+ years. Being two women alone, this was a perfect place to stay with the Les Halles metro just steps away. I knew the area already but wasn't prepared for just how excellent of a choice I had made to stay here. My only setback was, we were staying a short time and had request that our room NOT be cleaned. We are not dirty people and just didn't want/need anyone in our room. They cleaned it anyway. This laid heavy on me because we specifically asked them not to. Weekend nights it does get a little loud but I was so tired I really didn't care. Those are my only complaints! C'est bon!!

Only one person and one suitcase possible in the lift. No airconditiong or fan so was hot and stuffy. Were told that a cab could be organised to take us to the station however the man on duty on 25th September either couldn't / wouldn't get one so we had to drag our luggage 3 kms to the station.

Very little rooms. We stayed in the largest and best for my believe, but it is still little. Facilities are poor. Lift are only for person with luggage or two without. Breakfast in ugly place without windows on -2 level. However staff is friendly. Note that taxis are not coming to the hotel b/c it is a pedestrian zone and you need to walk about 200-250 meters. Definitely not a choise for travellers with luggage.

9 Euro for the breakfast is outrageous. Just go outside the hotel to any of the numerous cafes and you'll get half the price. The hotel is ok for younger travellers but due to room size (which is normal for central Paris) not suitable for older or family travellers.

Excellent location really near metro station Chatelles les Halles. Friedly staff who worked 24/7. Hotel was small and modest, but location and rather low price compensated this.

This was my first trip to Paris and I was a woman alone and on a budget, staying for 3 nights. I had to make the decision whether to stay at a cheaper hotel, further out, travelling to and fro to central Paris or a more expensive one in the 'hub' of things. The Prince Hotel Forum was one of the cheapest central hotels I could find. Now, if you are looking for a taxi ride to the doorstep of a 4/5 star hotel, this isn't for you. The hotel is in a pedestrianised street which means, if you have a lot of luggage it's a struggle to get there. However, if you are travelling reasonably light and you want something 5 minutes from the Louve, the Seine and with dozens of restaurants, a Shopping Mall and a RER/Metro station literally within 2 minutes walk away, are just interested in a base to come back to at night, then this hotel could be for you. It is, as is a lot of Paris properties, tiny. I think it only goes back the depth of one room and a corridor and the lift (:-) says it's for 3 people but being around 18" x 24" approx., 3 of you would have to 'spoon'. However, it is comfortable for 2 people or 1 with a suitcase. I had a single room, approx 4ft bed with around 18" to the side and 2ft at the bottom, with a tiny bathroom (toilet, basin and small shower only) but hey, the sheets and towels were clean, the staff friendly and it served me as a base to get back and collapse with happy fatigue at the end of long days of walking/cycling and sightseeing around this beautiful city.

The Prince Hotel Forum has one of the best locations in Paris, I spend 4 days with good convenience, the facilities are standard and clean,(recently renovated) the employees were very helpful and polite. I liked my small Parisian room with a view of rue Rambuteau's chic atmosphere. I'll come back again in October.

The hotel is in excellent location. I wish they had at least a little bigger shower, because only small person can fit there. Also, I've never seen that small elevator in my entire life:)I also personally didn't like dark wall colors, the room looked smaller. The walls were not too clean as well. I probably would stay again because of the price and location, unless I want to pay more for better comfort. But we were out whole day and only would come to sleep - so it was OK.

The best thing about the hotel is the central location, good value for money in the heart of Paris. If you are a large sized person with bulky luggage, best to chose a different hotel. If you plan to spend a lot of time in the room itself with your significant other, this is NOT the place to go. But if you are mainly focused on visiting Paris and being out and about, you are a small or medium European sized person with a small suitcase, you can fit on the elevator and in the rooms. The breakfast is served in a basement room with no window. I recommend going just around the corner to the Nylsa Caffe on 6 rue de la Cossonnerie where they have fresh croissants, good coffee and a view of the pedestrian street and in good weather an outdoor seating area. In the very nearby Forum shopping center there is a cinema which also shows original language films and a large swimming pool, very convenient for relaxation and exercise.

The whole facade of the hotel was covered by scafoldin (and reapir work).The view from the hotel window was obscured by this. The elevator was a bit narrow and out of order for two days, otherwise the hotel was OK. The clientelle was mainly tourists. My stay was tourisme as well.

we stayed there beginning of november and payed only 107 euro per night for a double room. usually, when the hotel isn't in full renovation of the front side, wich was the case and will be the case untill end of the year it's the double prize! what is abusive! The rooms so tiny, you hardly ca go round the bed if you are two persons! the workers begin at 8h in the morning to hammer on the wall - so, if you want the stay on weekdays you have to bie tough! the room was not really clean and dust was all over! but sourroundings perfect if you want to go out.

Its a fine hotel, nothing fabulous but in one of the best locations in Paris for crepes, bars, restaurants, jazz clubs as well as sight seeing. It was under renovation when we stayed and had hammering at 8.30 in the morning on week days. Not ideal and the windows were blocked with work nets. We felt that the hotel should have closed for this but I am sure that it has finished now and I would stay there again, without a doubt.

Buscábamos un hotel que sobre todo, estuviera limpio, y lo estuvo. La situación es excelente, con parada de metro (Les Halles) y RER (Chatêlet-Les Halles) justo al lado. La calle es peatonal con muchos sitios para comer. Muy cerca del Centre Pompidou, y a un paseo (5 min) de Notre Dame. La recepcionista habla español, y ellos en inglés. Nosotros fuimos cuando estaban rehabilitando la fachada (octubre 2007) así que la experiencia no fue muy buena (ventanas precintadas, ruidos...) pero de no ser po ésto hubiéramos estado muy bien. El desayuno es continental y cuesta 9 euros, nosotros no lo cogimos preferimos ir a cualquier bar a tomar un café. El check-out es a las 11, así que último día dejamos las maletas en la recepción hasta que fuimos al aeropuerto por la tarde. La habitación es pequeña, pero no agobiante. Armarios muy pequeños. Tiene nevera (pequeña), por si quieres tener cosas de desayuno o comida. Buena experiencia, salvo por la obra de la fachada. Si vuelvo a París, volveré a este hotel.

Very nice staff the rating would not be comapriable to the Irish system regarding the hotel, the three star would not be the same in Ireland. It might be worth mentioning to potential guests it is on a pedistrian road so when you arrive in a taxi you need to walk to the hotel.

There is no way this is a 3-star hotel!! I have seen better 2-star hotels. Elevator does not hold a man plus suitcase, furniture in the room was very worn and poor quality, towels aslo very old. Shutters in our room were broken and would not close. C'est hôtel est minable et ne mérite pas ses trois étoiles. Je connais des 2-étoiles bien meilleurs. L'ascenseur ne tient pas un homme avec valise et le mobilier est vétuste. Serviettes de bain très usées. Les stores de notre chambre étaient cassés.

The staff at this hotel were wonderful. There was a guy and a lady. Both were so kind and nice and very helpful. The room was noisy, but it is Paris and we were on vacation. People party..... just use ear plugs. We would stay there again in a heartbeat, if for no other reason than to see the people working at the desk. I just can not express how wonderful they were.

Bad hotel. Nosy area, facing a very busy pedestrian street. All the rooms face this nosy street. Not enough ventilation, that is, when is summer there is no air conditioning, thus if one leaves the windows open one cannot sleep because the fights and noise outside. It should not be rated as 3 star hotel, it should be rated as 1 star hotel. Thanks,
