Quelle magnifique! I could not have asked for a better hotel room in Paris! I arrived after 30 hours of continuous travelling and was simply stunned by the hotel room. I had requested a room with a street view, and my room on the 3rd floor overlooked the tiny rue du Caron and down towards Place St Catherine... a beautiful part of the Marais. The 3 double French windows actually opened and it was delightful to savour the atmosphere.
The room: the hotel photos are actually an honest and excellent representation. The decor was inviting, the bed was comfortable, the mini bar was FREE and re-stocked each day (I only enjoyed a few drinks and the KitKat), the bathroom was compact but very functional (loved the large showerhead and Occitane products ... and enormous fluffy white towels!), and the room was pleasantly air conditioned (a welcome addition as I arrived in Paris at the end of their heatwave). I was travelling solo and the space in the room size was perfect for me.
The hotel: The reception staff were all very friendly and put up with my attempts at French. The free wi-fi (access codes per device) was fantastic and fast. I did not eat breakfast here so I cannot comment about the breakfast room or menu options. I took the lift upstairs to my room but used the stairwell to go down - it's a bit dim even with the automatic sensor lights, but that's the only 'negative' (if it can be called that!).
The area: The Marais is a beautiful district to explore on foot, and there are plenty of places to eat in Place St Catherine. The hotel is also only a short stroll from the St Paul metro station (there is a handy escalator going up - perfect for taking luggage!).
I am *so* glad that I found this place on TripAdvisor and the hotel really lived up to its great reviews. This is a beautiful little hotel, complete with many essential and bonus items, and I am just sorry that I am not staying longer! I would highly recommend Hotel Caron to visitors in Paris - c'est magnifique!
