Fabio's service and knowledge of the city was excellent.

Nothing bad to say.
Hotel Royal Cardinal has the perfect location. Very close to two Metro stations, florist, cafes, dining, Seine, tourist attractions, etc. Can't go wrong. It also has a lift. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. Don't miss out on the best breakfast in town either! Only 7 Euros! It arrives with a smile, hot and delicious. This was my second time staying at Cardinal and will do so again in the future. Thank you. Anna Levenson.

Perfectly located for what we wanted to do Nice and helpful staff No noise despite location at a crossroad Very comfortable bed
April 12, 2015
As stated in other reviews the walls towards the inside of the hotel are very thin due to the fact that it seems to be quite an old building (which gives it character, I have to add). So you can hear quite a lot and that might bother you when trying to sleep. :) But all in all you don't stay in there all day so it's acceptable.
The rooms were clean, the location was excellent (Quartier latin, close to St. Germain and Notre Dame) and the staff was friendly and found a solution for any problems. The price was very good given the location.

Only 1 electrical outlet that didn't work. Very little heat. Extremely small.

Our room (531) was a bit small, but we didn't spend much time in the hotel, so that wasn't really a problem.
This hotel is placed in a nice area, just a few minutes of walking you will find several bus stops and also metro station. A trip to Eiffel Tower is less than 30 minutes by bus from there. Many thanks to Fabio, our host, who helped us with interesting tipps for sightseeing. He is very hospitable. For my next trip to Paris I consider to chose the same hotel again.

Friendly and helpful staff.

I can't think if anything negative to say
The location is good. A basic reasonably priced hotel that is near to Notre dame and in the heart of the Latin quarter
March 24, 2015

the break fast

Electric heater because hotel heating in my room was out of order No socket for cell or computer unless the one at 2 m height or the other at 10 cm from the ground. They have then provided an extension cord. Unbelievable for € 100/night breakfast excluded
Location is really good, close to metro and Phateon

congested rooms , Very Small lift.
Staff /Owner helped a lot in planning our tour.

Attendee Fabio gave us many good hints. For sure I will recommend the hotel to our friends.

No restaurant for breakfast and no parking. We parked 1/2 Kilometre away which cost us €60 over 4 days. The TV controls were a little awkward to use
Fabio was really helpful showing us the best ways to see Paris. Felt he and the rest of the staff were genuinely interested in making the best of our stay. Loved the staircase - really beautiful. The room was spacious, warm and comfortable and offered fantastic value for money considering it's location. Really recommend to anyone looking for a low cost trip to Paris as you can blow €1000 in the 4 days which we did once we included travel and eating out.

The burn holes in the bed sheets.
Its close to the latin quarter

The hotel had thin walls. Granted, we went on valentine's day, but we could easily hear other couples. If you're easily offended, it might not be the best place to take your kids. The receptionist, while super friendly and helpful, did try to rather aggressively sell us on a boat tour. We didn't end up taking the boat tour, so I can't comment on that. The shower was really encrusted by limescale.
Really good value for money, we paid less than 100 euro for a night for two people, which is extraordinary for a hotel in paris. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. One of the staff members (Fabio was his name I think?) was a genuine polyglot! The location is near a popular metro line that will easily take you all over the city and near several places to eat and little grocery stores. The room was really clean, which was our biggest concern when choosing a room. The free WiFi was fast enough to watch youtube or netflix.

Overbearing concierge in the day time too keen on selling trips. Night staff very unhelpful e.g. We asked about the baby bottle warmer and travel cot mentioned in the hotel info and he said no. Nothing else even when pushed just no! Too busy eating his kebab under the counter. Very poor value for money.
Not a lot- warm room which was appreciated as temp outside was below zero
February 11, 2015
Fabio at the front desk was amazing! Super helpful and passionate. He saved us lots of time and helped us get the most out of Paris in the short timeframe that we had.
February 10, 2015
disappointed with the hotel. The lack of a kettle in the room or even restaurant was a surprise. Receptionist wasn't great and took a long time to check us in after a mix up. Room was gloomy but adequate. Bathroom looked great..in 1970 but lacked any mod cons. The wall mounted hairdryer provided little use. Shower was good but over bath which caused it to leak. Very dated, not in a good way. I'd not return to this hotel but will leave that up to you.
Location was convenient for central Paris.

i want all tourst take care about the staff
January 23, 2015
We stayed for one night only, but it was a truly pleasure, because of the friendly staff. Especially Mr Fabio, which explain to us everything what a tourist should know about Paris, plus some helpful tips. We truly recommend Royal Cardinal for a short stay in Paris. Andreea
