As usual, every room in probably every hotel in Paris with less than 5-star, is small :) But this hotel looks much better as compared with other hotels I ever stayed such as Hotel Pavillon Monceau, Hotel Gaston, Hotel Mercure Paris 19 Philharmonie La Villette, Hotel Mercure Paris Ivry Quai de Seine (but of course, not to be compared with Hotel Paris Marriott Champs Elysees, which is the top of all that certainly comes with a cost of 5-star hotel). In any case, this hotel is actually no different from other hotels in Paris in its class, but somehow it brings a satisfaction. Breakfast is good with standard food as many others (croissant and other breads) but it has a hot meal option which is not too bad as the menu, at least, changed 3 times during my 5-6 days stay. The room for breakfast is quite spacious as well, considering how small hotel rooms in general Paris. The decor of the room is quite attractive too. They have coffee machine which runs all-day and free of charge. The same goes for hot water or normal/sparkling water tap located in the breakfast room. This is very convenient and the only hotel I ever stayed in the past that provides such. Excellent! My room has a small balcony which may not be sufficient for sitting but nice to have an outdoor view to the neighbouring area. Probably it will be nice during a time other than winter to stand on the balcony and watching around. The only thing I probably slightly dislike is the bathroom which has no door and it makes the floor wet after every shower. Not a big deal, but it would be nice if it can be closed. The walls between rooms, are probably the same everywhere, quite thin and noise travels around, but during my stay, it was relatively calm and quiet, perhaps guests who were staying are working people who needed to work the next day so everyone has a sort of similar sleeping time. Probably :) My room is for a single person to stay, but the hotel looks to have option for a bigger size which can accommodate a family which I definitely will try the next time I visit Paris.

Great location, walking distance to most places. Close to metro and train station. Clean cozy rooms, comfortable beds. Staff was awesome from the moment we were greeted to the moment we left.

From check in to check out this hotel was perfect, the front desk people were extremely helpful and polite, House keeping was excellent, we are a family of 6 and travel to a lot of different places so we appreciate a good hotel and this is definitely one of them, @ this hotel we had 2 junior suites we put 2 teenagers boy and girl in one room and our younger boys in the suite with us so we all had our own rooms, the sitting room in the suite has a fold out bed from sofa and it was extremely comfortable as was the bed in the main bedroom, the toilet was separate to the main bathroom and the shower is large with a rain head and a wall head, the hotel is beautifully decorated in the theme of a famous French author Marcel Proust with many interesting facts books and displays, there’s an elevator and also a beautiful spiral staircase connecting floors, The breakfast ( we did not indulge) looked awesome, the hotel is located in a great location in the 8th lots of restaurants, boulangeries and patisserie, a laundromat all in walking distance, the Europe metro station 5 min walk, I can’t stress how great the front desk staff were we had a problem with our bags not making it in time with our flight, the front desk told us where to go get clothes for our teenagers made calls to the couriers that had them and even took the bags and signed for them on Christmas Day when we were not able to be contacted, if I could give this hotel 10 stars out of 5 I would.

This is the most charming little hotel. I stayed for two nights on a business trip, and I would definitely stay again. The rooms are small (not unusual for Paris) but beautifully appointed, the bed is very comfortable, and everything was very clean. The staff was kind and accommodating; they arranged a selection of gifts (champagne, flowers, chocolates) for a colleague of mine who was having a birthday. Breakfast offerings were fresh and delicious. All in all, highly recommended!

Original manuscripts and first editions by Marcel Proust greet you in the lobby of this neat little hotel near the Gare St Lazare. Rooms are very small as is often the case in Paris but mine was clean and modern. A glass door to the bathroom/wc means rooms may not be suitable for some couples. Plumbing problems which had not been noticed by housekeepers were corrected promptly. Those staying more than a couple of days should note there is nowhere to put clothes apart from a tiny wardrobe so you must live out of a suitcase. The hotel is close to Europe metro which goes directly to Odeon (acceptably close to the Louvre) but if you are going elsewhere it is 10 mins walk to Gare St Lazare métro and therefore this is not the most convenient location for tourism, and you also need about 10 mins to get to more interesting restaurants. Staff were efficient though not particularly friendly at first. I commend Laurent who went out of his way to help when I left stuff in the room safe.

We stayed 4 nights in a classic double room this hotel and it was perfect! The Marcel Proust theme makes it very unique and filled with character. The room is small but very clean, comfortable and well laid out with everything we needed. We loved the small luxurious details like plush towels, bathrobes, slippers and Nuxe Paris toiletries. The location is in a safe and quiet neighbourhood that is close to everything we wanted to see (walking distance or by metro). Hotel staff is very friendly and helpful with everything from restaurant recommendations to advice on taking the metro. We hope to stay at this hotel again in the future!

"My experience at the Hotel Littéraire Le Swann was simply awesome. The location of the hotel is perfect, just a few minutes from the city center and the main tourist sites. From the moment I arrived, the staff was very friendly and helpful, always willing to make my stay as comfortable as possible. They are undoubtedly a clear example of human quality, service, willingness and affection. The room I stayed in was spacious, with a comfortable bed, impeccable room service, luxurious and well cared for. With unparalleled views of the terrace and a breathtaking view of the sea. I can not fail to mention the variety of breakfast, with options for all tastes, from hot to cold dishes, and a wide selection of drinks in addition to taking special care in celiacs. They made our experience unforgettable, we felt at home thanks to the team that takes care of their customers VERY grateful. Juls and Mar

The Good - Location. it is kind of in the city center. We can take a twenty to thirty minute walk to major attractions - Lots of food choices, bars right next to the hotel - Very clean - Had a Safe. Very helpful to keep precious things and lock before we ventured out to explore the city - Uber comes usually in less than five minutes - Provides (sufficient) water bottles - Friendly service. Staff, front desk, breakfast place, they are all friendly and helpful The OK - the size of the room. Very cramped we felt as we have two grown up kids. We got a room, they call it as apartment,. once you spread the sofa to a bed, you can't open the cupboard, difficult to walk to the other side - not flexible to extend the check out time, even for one hour. 12 pm sharp, we had to get out - breakfast - had some choices and it helped to have something before we get out. Coffee Americano was definitely good when compared to the choices available outside. The Bad - bathroom door. it is a sliding door that doesn't cover completely. No lock. sometimes, it just slides out automatically and it is open (while you are sitting in the potty!) - cost - you pay a bomb and it appears it is mostly for the location.
