4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2011

Upon approaching the hotel it is not 100% clear that the hotel is indeed the 'Arvor Saint Georges' as the name is no longer above the door or on the front of the building (as shown in the images) so we entered cautiously when we checked in! The exterior of the building was clean and well presented and the street itself was quiet. The street consists of mainly residential/commercial offices and a small Greek church.

When you check into a hotel you normally find that the promotional images are often unlike the reality but in this case I can confirm that the lobby of the hotel is exactly as shown in the images. The lobby and breakfast area is comfortable, well presented, quiet and 'homely' with a Mac with internet access for guests to use and a comfortable guest seating/waiting area. Upon check in the receptionist fully understood our English and quickly dealt with a mix-up with the room we had been allocated with apologies all-round and no fuss or issues (thankfully).

We were presented with a standard door key, not the key-cards that you normally get in hotels and shown to our new room which was room 001 (The suite located on the ground floor behind the reception area). I was hoping for a room with a view as so many people on Trip Advisor had raved about the amazing views they had of 'Parisian rooftops and the Eiffel Tower' from this hotel so if that is what your after then room 001 is not for you - you really have to do what I should have done and specifically request a room on the 4th/5th floors. Judging by the pictures on this site the suites on the top floor look amazing and I thought I'd just end up with one of them.

Not that I'm dissing the room, far from it.. You enter the room from the terrace behind reception (so you have to go outside through the small terrace area and into your room). The entrance to the room is a set of framed double doors with glass panels in which are covered by some fabric blinds. You enter into the first room which consists of a sofabed and a dressing table with mirror. One critisism here is that the staff use the kitchen/reception area off the terrace and would be able to see through this door in the night time if the lamps or light were to be on in the first room, there is a sofabed and dressing table in this first room so I suggest dressing in the bedroom or bathroom area, I'd have felt a bit exposed sleeping on the sofabed in there! The proprietor should consider changing the door covering to a blackout material or putting a curtain across the door.. The Suite itself was large, much larger than the first 'superior double' we were allocated. On first glance it was well presented and had a fresh contemporary feel about it. The room managed to keep its Parisian feel with a few pieces of character furniture, wall art and high ceilings.

The bathroom - which was a decent size and modern with an excellent full-size deep bath with shower. In the bathroom there was a hair dryer, a heated towel rail, extractor and large basin with mirror. There was a small tube of 2-in-1 shampoo/conditioner and a small soap but nothing more than that. No complimentary shower gels/bath wash or shaving kits but this is a 3* hotel and I wasn't expecting it - it would have been nice though, especially with such a nice bath! The towels were clean, soft and replaced daily.
The bedroom area, separated from the entrance room with a door was large, possibly twice the size of the superior rooms in this hotel. It consisted of a king size bed with quality bedding (nice thick pillows, a good quality bed throw, crisp white sheets and duvet). The bed was firm but comfortable. There were large circular bedside tables either side of the bed with lamps. There were no wardrobes in the room, just a clothes rack with 6 hangers, this room could accomodate a wardrobe with ease and a wardrobe with more hanging space would have been nice. The 26" TV was of excellent quality, High Definition with good reception but it is only French TV - no BBC World/CNN/Sky news etc. I didn't think this would bother me but I do like to tune into the British news on holiday. The room had WiFi access but you must ask for the WiFi code at reception! WiFi is so, so, useful to us and was a godsend, It allows us to use our phones to plan our days out in Paris! The window in the room is huge and looks out onto the terrace and the windows open wide. There is no air conditioning but we didn't need it as the weather wasn't that hot. Those windows could have been opened in the event of a hot night BUT you are on the ground floor with windows onto the terrace and people able to see in from the kitchen and reception area (and down from other rooms). I have to say, noise was not a problem for us, there was no excessive noise at all. The staff are very courteous and will close the doors to the kitchen and reception when you are in your room. The only issue was from other guests in their rooms above overlooking the terrace. There were one or two instances when they were a little chatty and you could hear it. The windows and doors are double glazed though and closing them blocked most of any noise out.

So all-in-all, I left happy with my stay, its all very informal and they just let you get on with your holiday and the maid isn't banging on your door at 8am to clean the room, they simply clean it when you go out for the day. The room was nicely sized and comfortable which is all that matters, its not an all singing all dancing hotel with the trimmings - its a lovely, homely hotel. Breakfast I cannot comment on as I didn't have it, E14 was a bit expensive for a continental breakfast i felt. A few tiny improvements could make that suite excellent. I felt a tiny bit exposed in there, I like to be able to keep my curtains open and look out onto the streets and houses and was not used to being in the thick of it I guess..

Room Tip: Try and push the extra cash and get a Suite for the extra space, ask for a high floor.

Cosy and comfortable. Free Internet was very useful. Quite clean as well. No air conditioning so have to keep the window open. Although the hotel is not on a busy road, the accoustics in the street amplify any ambient noises - quite annoying if someone is having a party. Overall good hotel but maybe slightly over priced.

Hotel is located in small (and quiet) street, which makes it quieter than most other hotels. Rooms were really clean and airy with big windows. No airconditioning, which can be problem during hot summer. No closet or wardrobe, just a small hanger. Very expencive breakfast, but several cafes nearby. Superior Double room is just few squaremeters bigger than normal room - no other differencies, so it's not worth of the price difference. Doors of the rooms are not soundproof, luckily there are only 5 rooms at one tloor. Hotel is conveniently located close to metro station (Saint Georges).
I suggest the hotel for a short trip (max 2 nights), but not longer as it is unconvenient to handle luggage and clothes. Also avoid Superior rooms, as they are not worth the money (compared to normal rooms).
Wifi was working OK:

Room Tip: Rooms in higher floors have nice view over the rooftops.

Really got lucky when I booked this hotel. It's an a very quiet area but only a ten minute walk to Pigalle and probably 1 minute to the metro station at St George. The room was more than adequate, though I did have a superior to be fair, and was a good size for a Paris hotel. Bathroom was again perfectly good and spotlessly clean. Lack of room service didn't bother me at all, with all the places to eat and socialise in Paris the last thing I wanted to do was eat in my room! There are some nice cafes a 2 minute walk away anyway. Would definately stay again, in fact I plan to fairly soon.

What a fantastic hotel. My wife and I booked this "3 star" with a little trepidation as we had booked another 3 star hotel nearby, a few years ago, which was terrible, but after reading the reviews here, thought we would give this a try.
What a revelation! The hotel is on a quiet street, only 50 meters from the metro station. The staff were excellent. Helpful and pleasant, and for those of us who have trouble with languages, spoke excellent English. The rooms were larger than expected with room to move, the bathroom actually had a full size bath (very much appreciated after a long day walking around, sightseeing). They didn't have all the mod cons, like a fridge, but there was a LCD TV mounted on the wall, and the wireless was free and fast.. Just the basics. I would recommend this to anyone that wants a quiet place to stay while exploring the wonderful city of Paris. Its walking distance to Pigalle, and Moulin Rouge, and there are many restaurants and cafe's very close by. Excellent hotel.

It is increasingly difficult to find anywhere in Paris that is half-decent for under €100 a head, and this is one of the few. Not sure how much travelling 'Flipster' has done, but the Rue Ferriere is a small, quiet, partly residential and partly offices, side road in the St Georges area. This is a popular inner city residential area well known for its local restaurants (numerous) and its 'foodie' rue des martyrs nearby. I saw no graffiti or peeling plaster and paint, although about 1/2km up the road is Pigalle which attempts (rather pathetically and in a very small scale) to maintain its old reputation as one of the the 'red light' areas of paris. The hotel is close to 2 metro stations (St Georges and Notre Dame de Lorette) and within easy walking distance of the Opera Garnier. Rooms are bigger than most 3* hotels in Paris, recently refurbished with new modern bathrooms (do like the locals and sit down to shower or you will fill the bathroom with water) and comfortable beds. Unusually for small Paris hotels the decor is 'modern Scandinavian' rather than traditional frilly and floral and is refreshingly minimalist. Free internet access in the main lounge which is a delightful meeting area to read, relax and hang out. I never have hotel breakfasts in Paris - the coffee and croissants are much better and it is always more fun to go to the local corner cafe - which is excellent as has been reported earlier here.
