Hotel Crayon is a cute little boutique hotel right by the Louvre. The location could not have been better or more central. There was also a huge subway station just a couple of blocks away, which was perfect. Awesome staff, great rooms. And the water pressure in the shower was outstanding!!! This was so nice to have after a long...

My friend and I decided on Hotel Crayon because of its location (near the Louvre and the metro) and because it seemed like a great value--and it was. The staff was very helpful and accommodating--despite this being a small hotel, there was always someone at the front desk to answer our questions! The room was small, but very cute and...

My mother and I decided to stay at this hotel because of its location (10 minute walk to the Louvre), price point (being much cheaper than other hotels near the Louvre), and reading previous good reviews. The rooms are very cute, clean, updated, and not cramped. Our beds were very comfortable and the hotel maids were sweet. The bathroom was...

We arrived by Eurostar and were able to take the metro to Les Halles and make a short walk to Hotel Crayon. The hotel has a community vibe and feels much like a college co-op though much much cleaner and with better decor. :) All the staff are extremely kind and helpful. They are quick to help and look up...

Beautiful rooms. Each room looks unique with a different theme. Nice walking distant to the Lourve and L'Atelier restaurant. Nice and quiet neibourhood with a supermarket close by. And if you want to try tasty reasonable French food just walk to les fines gueules restaurant around the corner. You can get fresh fried foie gras (not pate style) for only...

This is my first time in Paris and won't be my last. I came here with my son who is 14. I love this place. The staff is very very friendly and incredibly helpful. Their English is great and they've even helped me plan my tours and recommend places to eat and things to do for me and a teenager...

We stayed in late March 2014 to celebrate our engagement. We chose well. Staff were extremely friendly, giving plenty of personal recommendations on everything from hairdressers to affordable brasseries. Rooms, although small, were immaculately presented and accompanied by a terrific shower in the ensuite bathroom. Make sure you ask to sample the free aromatherapy oils they offer. The 'honesty bar'...

Really appreciated the promixity to Les Halles Metro/RER hub. Made access from and to Charles De Gaulle Airport so easy. It is super close to major historical sites and museums. 5 minute walk to Louvre and Jardin Des Tuileries. Musee d'Orsay is a little bit further. I walked from the Eiffel to the hotel (about 2.2 miles) and it was...

The only problem is the lighting, the room lighting is very poor. All else was Fine. Breakfast was very reach, the place is 5 minuted from the Metro and within minutes of some very nice locations if you have nothing to do in the afternoon, a lot of cafes and resturants around, and if you want to buy some pastry...

A little gem in the centre of Paris,a short walk to the metro and the world is your oyster. Near the hotel there are plenty of bistros,brasseries and bars. The hotel itself is quirky and a fun place to be. The rooms although small by some peoples standards are very comfortable with quality linen and toiletries. We had a shower...
