Staff /Owner helped a lot in planning our tour.
congested rooms , Very Small lift.
Attendee Fabio gave us many good hints. For sure I will recommend the hotel to our friends.
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.
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
Its close to the latin quarter
The burn holes in the bed sheets.
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.
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.
Not a lot- warm room which was appreciated as temp outside was below zero
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.
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.
Location was convenient for central Paris.
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.
i want all tourst take care about the staff
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
The front desk guy was really helpful
Size of the rooms and facilities
Friendly staff Good location- close to Bars, Metro stations and tourist attractions, such as the Notre Dame cathedral. Also, our room had a French balcony, from which you could see the Eiffel Tower.
The room and furniture was dated and quite shabby. It needed to be painted and completely re-vamped. Also, the corridor outside the room was quite noisy at night. The hotel wasn't really what I had expected and I don't think that I would stay there again.
We really liked the location of the hotel. Close to two metro stations and major attractions. Extremely knowledgeable concierge, who helped us plan out our stay. He gave us great info that got us around and into major attractions without the fuss. A lot of great places to eat around the hotel too. Overall charming atmosphere, friendly staff, and great access to the surrounding area.
The room was clean and small size, however we spent most of our time outside sight seeing anyways. Would have appreciated a kettle and cups in the room, which was not provided. Our visit was in January so we spent the first night in our room uncomfortablely cold thinking that the heater would do it's job overnight. The next morning we called the front desk explaining, and they provided us with a portable heater, which helped a lot. Don't expect to sleep in, mornings are very noisy as housekeeping is busy delivering breakfast to guests in other rooms or chit-chatting with each other. Also beware, in our case housekeeping didn't bother knocking before barging in. Still however, overall we had no major issues at the hotel.
One of the receptionist was wery rude and unfriedly. The day before leaving he kept asking when are we leaving. Rooms are super small, walls are super thin - even talking is heard from the neighbouring rooms. There were not enough hot water, heating was inadequate, in bathroom there were actualy no heating. Blankets were like those they provide on the shelter home. Brekfast is not royal it is poor. Elevator is so small that you hardly put bags in it and it is regulary used by the cleaning stuff. And about the cleaning stuff. You'll see black ladies barefooted. Only good thing is the location. I suggest avoiding this hotel.
I liked the location, close to Norte Dame
The beds are uncomfortable. The room rent charged was €117, the quoted rate was €107. Amenities are non existent.
The location & room very very good for the money. Also last minute availability
The man who checked me in at the hotel was quite rude. I'd forgotten my passport at a friends hotel & instead of checking me in with a photocopy while my friends retrieved the passport he treated me like a low class citizen & made me sit in the lobby while I waited.
Staff, facilities, cleanliness, ... mainly everything was poor.
Arriving in Paris from Turin on the early-morning TGV, it was essential for the hotel to be accessible on-foot from the terminal and also the main cultural areas. Just 15 mins from the Gare de Lyon in the 4th Arrondissement, the Royal Cardinal at No 1 Rue des Ecoles, proved to be an excellent choice. Situated close to The Notre Dame, and with two nearby Metro stops, this great city can thus be enjoyed with ease and pleasure. Outstanding value for one's holiday Euros, attentive and helpful staff, together with room-service breakfast, make this a hotel to be recommended for all travellers to Paris.
Location location and location
- No Breakfast other than room service - Extremely old beds and worn out - Bulbs not working - Noisy place from other rooms - Not very clean - Still stuff left from earlier person living in the room - Way too expensive for a 2 star hotel - Will never go there again
Reception Staff and his co operative behavior , more than the desk manager he was a very good guide .
Rooms & Accommodation we purely waste of money
I particularly liked the breakfast served in the room and I am grateful to Fabio, the receptionist, who was very helpful throughout our stay
British TV channels Location Lift (we were on 5th floor) Shower Safe in room. Pubs and bars nearby
No bedside tables. No tea / coffee making in room Breakfast room only service, 7euro p.p. Order night before. No bar Room bit cramped and dated decor
Worst hotel ever. Very run down. No air conditioning. We could't even open the windows because of the noice outside. The shower had 2 feet up that you need to jump up. Not good for older people. The hotel clerk Flavio try to be funny but very upnotious. Will not recommend this hotel. But the location is excellent.
Terrible room and way too expensive thru Booking.com. I have stayed there twice before but never again.
