"Wonderful location, rooms not as pictured online"
The initial rooms that we were given were very different from what was represented on the website. The rooms were rundown with torn carpeting and a very strong musty odor. We were told that the hotel was at capacity and we could not be moved, although we had booked months in advance. We had to be very persistent and demand a manager before being moved to rooms that were similar to those represented online. The bathrooms are very poorly designed with extremely tiny showers and bathtubs with no shower curtain or glass door so that the water soaked the room daily. The concierge was very pleasant and helpful, but the staff at the front desk were dismissive and rude. The lobby and restaurant were clean and pleasant and breakfast was adequate and consistent. We booked two rooms for 9 nights, it was okay overall, but will probably stay elsewhere next trip.
TIcked almost every box (probably asking too much for a swimming pool as well but we were travelling with a swimming obsessed 7 year old!). Great location in central Paris, walking distance to many attractions (Louvre, Notre Dame etc). 1 min from Metro / RER station with direct trains to Charles de Gaulle and EuroDisney. Even managed to travel with all our luggage and a child on the RER to the airport (as good elevators and escalators). Free wifi, great kitchenette, nicely stocked. Good grocery stores very nearby, fast food & restaurants too so caters for all eating requirements. Truly free wifi. (unlike some hotels with limited access). We didn't try the hotel breakfast as the self catering facilities were so good (had a proper 'home' cooked breakfast in our room). Already looking forward to returning some day!!
I love Hotel Ducs D'Anjou and stay anytime I'm in Paris. I always recommend it to friends who have also stayed. The desk staff is always so nice and helpful. The hotel is beautiful, rooms bright and clean and just the cutest boutique hotel with charming lobby. It's on a walk street in my favorite area surrounded by restaurants, bars and shops. The metro is just outside the door and most sites are walkable such as Notre Dame, Louvre, Hotel De Ville etc. I will always stay at this hotel when I'm in town, it always has great prices and I highly recommend it!

Just returned from a one week stay at Hotel Bachaumont and had a WONDERFUL time! We had a Double Deluxe room, which was very spacious compared to the usual size of hotel rooms in Paris. The location is one of the main reasons to stay here, as it is in the middle of some of the best cafés and shopping in Paris with the Rue Montorgueil located steps from the hotel, the Sentier Metro station is right around the corner, the Louve and Seine river are a short 10 minute walk away, and right next to the hotel are one of the popular Velib bike rental stands. The Bachaumont restaurant and bar are FABULOUS! To clear some misinformation in the hotel description, THERE IS A FRONT DESK that is staffed 24/7 with helpful, friendly staff that all spoke very good English. You DO NOT need to make special arrangements to get your room key! Also, there are safes located right in the rooms themselves, not just at front desk.
Hotel is very well located, close to 2 main subway stations and several touristic places. Hotel is renovated and clean, staff is friendly and courteous. We had a small issue at check in (room was not ready at check in time) but was properly addressed by staff. I did not give a 5 rating because room is small (NY small), shower was not great, TV was outdated. But still it's worth staying there.
By the Tuileries gardens on the Seine’s Right Bank, the Louvre museum dominates Paris’s cultural heart. Exclusive boutiques line Rue St-Honoré and Rue de Rivoli, and a shiny modern shopping mall occupies the old market of Les Halles. The 2nd is the finance and theatre district, containing the Bourse (stock exchange) and the Comédie Française national theatre. Châtelet–Les Halles station is the city’s biggest and busiest transport interchange.
