The Handsome Hotel is in a great location. I booked it for our last night in Paris because of its proximity to the RER to CDG. But, wow, what a great location. It's in the heart of Le Marais with restaurants and shopping and a bustling atmosphere.

The only comment I would make is that occasionally we smelled cigarette smoke. we are non-smokers and it wasn't enough to make me not want to stay there - I would stay there again - but it was something we noticed.

We stayed in room 602 in the "attic". The room had a lot of space and I liked the layout of the room.

Dear SwedeinSEA,

Thank you so much for this very nice feedback!

Indeed our location is perfect for sight seeing in a trendy area.

We would like to apologize for the smoke smell. The hotel is basically a non smoking place.

We would be more than happy to welcome you again in our little Boutique Hotel.

Handsomely yours,

Déborah

The hotel is located perfectly next to Les Halles RER station. It's also the perfect location for shopping and sight seeing. The hotel itself is quite small but very cosy, clean, newly renovated with absolutely stunning interior design.

Dear Marie M,

Thank you so much for this awesome review!!

Indeed, the location is perfect for shopping, having fun but also to visit some monuments such as le Louvre or the Cathedrale Nôtre Dame which are at few minutes by walk from the hotel.

We are waiting for you to come back and enjoy another stay in Paris.

Handsomely yours,

Déborah

We just returned from 2 weeks in Europe, we spent 4 nights at the handsome hotel. Location was great, we could walk to the seine river and louvre. Tons of restaurants and shopping near by. But the rooms were sooo tiny! I guess that’s to be expected though in Paris. we couldn’t stop laughing at how small the elevator was my husband and I had to take separate trips up to our room when we checked in because we couldn’t both fit with our suite cases. The room was very clean but there was a rotten egg smell in the lobby that seemed to get stronger and seap into our room on the last night of our stay there. Beds were comfortable and the staff was very nice and helpful. I would recommend this hotel but upgrade to a bigger room so you can walk around your room without having to squeeze past the person you are sharing it with. Our smart phone that is supplied by the hotel didn’t really work we had to keep shutting it off to reset it to get it to work, so we didn’t end up using that feature.

Dear Stacey B,

Thanks for this rewarding review.

Indeed, in Paris and especially in the 1st district, buildings are not the biggest ones but we try to make you feel very comfortable.

We would like to apologize for the smell which was caused by the constructions in the Chatelet area. That wasn't caused by the hotel but we felt so sorry about this.

We hope that you will come back and that you will let yourself be tempted by a bigger room, maybe the Beautiful room, or the Smart room ...?

We can't wait to see you again.

Handsomely yours,

Déborah

This place is right where you want to be near the Seine, the Louvre and other attractions and almost on top of the subway. Rooms are small, but comfortable. Staff is friendly. Overall reasonable price, but could probably include breakfast for the amount you pay.

Room tip: Room 203 faces the street... We enjoyed it, because we like city noises and lights. If you have trouble sleeping maybe another room would be better.
