"Good but room for improvement"
Located in a quiet area but close to the historic centre and the restaurants. Unassuming entrance which you could easily miss. Our room was a fairly small size and a bit dated but had a shared balcony. Aircon (or fridge) was very noisy. Nice breakfast. Slight annoyance was the drinks we had in the bar whilst awaiting for our bike tour rep. It seems that our request for 2 gin and tonics was translated as being a cocktail, as the price was very high.
"Room with a view"
Occupying a gorgeous Haussmannian building in an elegant neighbourhood, just off the old city centre, and away from the crowds. Our classic room was small, comfortable and clean although starting to look tired; bathroom was big, bright and beautiful. Splendid view of the Îlle river and promenade, as well as the St Paul church from our window. Located just 300m from the old city, it was a short walk to all the historical sites and about 1km from the cathedral. Not a lot going on in terms of F&B on the property although there is a smart but very quiet bar. Le Michel café brasserie a block away serves a lovely light breakfast for about €5, and good, unpretentious food all day at reasonable prices and a good vibe for a quick drink. With a lot of tourist traps in the old city, we found Le Michel to be our best bet close to the hotel. Public parking available on the main street, free on weekends and bank holidays. In a nutshell, the hotel has a great, quiet location, and satisfactory rooms in need of some updating. We would choose to stay here again.
"Good hotel but not great"
I stayed in the Régent Contades for one night and I liked it. The room was excelent (although not quite the "suite" room announced on the walls of the fifth floor, as it was just a bedroom without an adjacent living room): clean, spacious and elegant, with the biggest TV I have ever seen in a hotel (Interesting the "occupied" light outside of each room that is activated when the guest lights up the room). The quality of the room was however contrasted with the poor condition of the corridors: an overall feeling of old and decrepit common areas, elevator going only to the 4th floor, not up to the 5th where my room was, corridor carpets full of stains. The exception was the breakfast room, with fabulous crown mouldings in excellent condition. The building is quite old and I understand the difficulty of bringing up to date such a building, but changing the carpets, curtains or the decor of the common areas is not so difficult.
Nice friendly welcome when we arrived, however this would have been better if we'd been told some other information, for example, what time and where breakfast was and about parking. The rooms are nice, clean and comfortable. The breakfast was pretty good but the breakfast room was very hot and became a little uncomfortable. The location of the hotel is fantastic, only ten minutes walk to the centre and to all attractions. Overall, a very pleasant stay, would recommend!
"a wonderful experience"
The room was very comfortable and clean ! The location of the hotel is the ideal one to walk around the city, visit the historical city centre and have access to public transportation means. Breakfast was very delicious. The hotel staff were really kind and helpful !
