We chose this Hotel because it was relatively inexpensive. While it was convenient to the Metro it is relatively far from most of the city attractions. We had a room on the first floor which was in poor condition, particularly the hallway rugs were badly stained and needed to be replaced. There were items left in the 1st floor hallways all day (like […] the room cleaning cart, they are probably using the maintenance closet for a room). The internet access from our room barely worked. Would definitely not recommend this hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ideal Hotel Design in Paris - low quality"
Who gave this hotel a 3-star rating? I don't think that it deserves even a single star. The stay was not comfortable. It does not appear clean and properly maintained.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Horrible Hotel - Great Location"
The location of this hotel to transportation was great. I was able to get all around Paris easily from here as all forms of Paris' public transportation was accesible - as in directly outside the fron door from this hotel. That being said, the hotel itself was majorly lacking. It is NOT a 3 star hotel. I would barely give it 2. The carpets are old, […] worn and dirty tthrought the hotel. The linens did not smell fresh - not saying they were dirty, they just did not smell freshly cleaned. The fact that there was free wi-fi was the only other plus I can say about the hotel. I will also admit the staff was relatively friendly. I was upset however, that they do not offer early check-in. They literally made us wait 5 hours to check-in. I've never experienced that before. Also te baggage area whee they let us put our luggage while we waited was unsecured and on a completely different floor from the reception staff. the price is great - but beware you definetly get what you pay for.

"Wonderful Access to the City"
Really enjoyed my stay; however, I think the hotel needs to tell its customers that if you use the phone you will get charged, even when you have a calling card. Other than that small detail, I LOVED IT!!!!!!!Genuine Expedia guest review
Good hotel- good price for a good room in a good locationGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not ideal at all!!!!"
It's a very bad location, takes 45 min to get to the center. Room smelled bad, they didnt clean our room during our 3 day staying,elevator is very very small,design of the hotel made me think that it used to be a wh*re house. Positive side is that the stuff was very nice and helpful and it's 1 step from the metro, free wifi. But still I would not stay […] here again and wouldn't recommend to my friends!

"Convienent, but lacking"
I had high hopes about this hotel when I booked it, but I feel like it didn't live up to my expectations. The carpets were damaged, and the door to the bathroom wouldn't shut all of the way, and the door was missing paint at the bottom. The cleaning person forgot to replace the towels in one of the rooms that I had booked, and there is no air conditioning […] in the rooms. Also the shower is small and uses a shower curtain instead of a solid door. In a small shower this has the effect of causing the shower curtain to stick to you while taking a shower. It is not all bad the rates were reasonable and the location is wonderful. As stated in another review the Orleans metro stop is right outside the door, and there are plenty of resturaunts and markets in the neighborhood. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"The worst hotel visited so far..."
This was an unpleasant and definitively not ideal experience that we had during our stay in this hotel in Paris. Apart from good location which is next door from the metro entrance, everything there was terrible. The room was in general dirty, the carpet was unclean, the furniture old, TV did not have a single channel in English, so we could not even […] watch it. I could hear every single word that the people next door were saying, so it was very uncomfortable to overhear someone's conversation. The maid did not vacuum our room. Unfortunately I paid the whole amount via Expedia, so we could not cancel and we had to stay the whole 7 nights there. We tried to come to the hotel as late as possible every day, and used it only to get some sleep. Luckily Paris was wonderful, and the whole vacation there was great. We tried to not be bothered by the hotel not to spoil our vacation. The hotel is not recommended at all. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Nice hotel worked fine for our trip. Very close to metro stop, nice neighborhood with places to eat and grocery store close by. Carpet worn in room but otherwise very clean. Elevator very small and since we were on the top floor it was hard to get bags up and down, but otherwise stay was good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
My fiance and I stayed at Ideal Hotel Design for seven days in March. During our time in Paris, we enjoyed the pleasant hospitality, convenient location, and comfort we would expect of a reasonably priced three star hotel. The Metro entrance is within feet of the hotel. It was easy and cheap to travel anywhere within the city, as well as to both airports. […] The neighborhood is on the southern outskirt of central Paris and filled with great shops, stores, restaurants and parks. There was a wonderful bakery next door to the hotel, as well as a bank, and several dining options were on the block. We also took advantage of the fresh food markets as well as the groceries stores within two minutes walk to keep light snacks and beverages on hand. The room and bathroom were clean, and the queen sized bed was comfortable. When we arrived, we were directed to a luggage storage room and restroom where we dropped off our baggage and freshened up before going out. Our room was ready before check in and the staff continued impressing us during our stay. For the money, this hotel exceeded our expectations. It was a great economical option that provided for an amazing vacation. We would enjoy returning without hesitation. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good budget hotel"
Affordable Paris hotel with very friendly staff in a safe neighborhood. The metro is right in front of the hotel and close to great shops, restaurants, and even a deluxe grocery store for those who can't afford dining every night like myself. It's about a 25minute train ride or 10 euro cab ride to the city center where many Monuments Are.. There is […] hussel and bussel outside and the wireless Internet worked only 2/3 the time on my iPhone but overall the hotel met my expectations and I had a great stay Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"convenient for the price"
It was great having a Metro station right in front of the hotel which made me feel safe coming back at night time. The room was clean but the carpet was old. Considering the price, it was a good deal.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Location, great service"
Rooms have a very comfortable size, it have all you need. Location is great, and access to tram and underground. Loved it!Genuine Expedia guest review
it's not the fanciest of hotels, but a very good value. Rooms and bathrooms are small but clean. Includes TV and wireless. Right by a metro stop so it's very convenient if you're traveling by metro. The staff were very helpful and friendlyGenuine Expedia guest review
"Ok if you don't mind a little dirt."
Hotel was ok. Not the cleanest, but not the worst. Lobby was misleadingly nice. VERY thin walls. Decent value for the price. Took a good 30-45 minutes to get to most of the sites in Paris on the train. Once you get off the train, the hotel literally is right in front of the stop.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great if you're familiar with Paris"
I've stayed at this hotel several times before my last experience. I love the funky motif, and the staff is very friendly. The rooms tend to be quirky; some have a better view than others. The beds are very comfy, and the breakfast is pretty decent. The only strong negative aspect is the location. It's at the end of line 4, which tends to be one of […] the busiest lines in Paris. Be aware that commuting could take anywhere from twenty to forty minutes to get to the center of town. If it is your first time to Paris, I would stay away from this hotel. There are others that are better located to explore the town. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
as I said...very good option!Genuine Expedia guest review
Fair Hotel for the price, convenient localization in front of the Porte d'Orleans metro station, easy arrival from and to Charles de Gaule Airport, fair restaurants around, pharmacy in frontGenuine Expedia guest review
"Wonderful Parisian Escape"
From the moment we checked in to the time we checked out we were treated like royalty. The staff were extremely accomodating and friendly. Our room was clean, safe,comfortable and artistically designed. It was so convenient to have the Metro entrance directly in front of the front door.Genuine Expedia guest review
"no aircon, dirty beds"
I don't mind tiny elevators and paper-thin walls, but if you're going to charge 147 euros a night,you better have clean beds and aircon. Guess what this hotel didn't have. I don't think this is a reflection on the hotel staff who were very helpful and courteous. The hotel is in a good area for business trips, which I was there for, close to several […] busses and metro station. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
It is more than I was expecting, nice staff and good hotel rooms. The only things I would comment on is the small elevator and the proximity to the train station at night. For me this last one was not a big deal and it becomes an advantage during the day.Genuine Expedia guest review
good, nice and clean room just enough for two persons. Breakfast served in nice way. Overall opinion good hotel except charges when you checked out, don`t try to take something from the small fridge in the room it will cost you a fortune.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Get what you pay for..."
Remember this is Paris in the Summer so a 3star hotel next to a metro station in an OK location for under $200 a night is about expected. (Our London hotel was about the same per night). We were on 7th out of 7 floors with an elevator that held three (like a sardine can on a wire) so we steeled ourselves for the climb up the stairs after a day's travelling. […] The hotel's located right next to the Port D'Orleans metro station which is by a very busy junction, so prepare for a night of car horns. Watch out too for those smoking floors! We didn't check and the smell wafted in one night. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice Refurbished Hotel, A/C Would Have Been Good!"
Hotel has obviously had a refurbishment recently and it was different to anything we have stayed in yet, quirky but good! Location was good with the metro right outside the door but still quite far if you want to catch taxis etc. Quite a few restaurants and bakeries near by (would not recommend the one right next door though! Soggy pastries) which made […] it easy to find breakfast, lunch or dinner. This hotel would benefit hugely from an air conditioner in the room, we had a series of very hot days and the room was like a sauna! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I spent five days. The first rece ption was not satisfactory as we waited long to get room. The room is calm as i prefered not to take the street view. So the view was not so nice. But the room was very satisfactory. Location of the hotel is the best thing in the whole trip. In front of the door the metro station, tramway. Boulangerie is next door many […] supermarkets around you. Buses to every where in paris is few meters from the hotel. Receptionists were very kind, but refused to make for me emergency call to paris costs 50 cents. We respect their rules. Over all assessment is excellent veniew.

"Kinda cheesy. Not quite as nice as it looks."
The staff were nice and it was satisfying, but I wouldn't call it Ideal. I mean, there's tape on the walls. Tacky. Location was easy to get around on the subway, but there was nothing going on in that neighbourhood.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good hotel bad location"
The staff is very friendly and nice, even though not all staff can speak English. The hotel is ok also, with this price we can't expect more. So overall is fine for budget travel. However, the location is in Murano island, which is not in the main island so everyday we have to use water bus, it is inconvenient. So if this is your first time travel to […] Venice with very limited time, i wouldn't recommend. Otherwise, this is a good choice. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Not an ideal spot."
A bit out of sight of major and popular attraction, close to the 'périphérique', this hotel is showing some signs of fatigue and clearly the staff is polite, but not friendly and warm. Parking is 3 streets away. the elevator cannot fit more than two luggage it is very narrow. NO A/C - in summer, prepare to sweat.Genuine Expedia guest review
Very nice rooms, extremely clean and cozy. The staff is friendly and helpful as well. Location is excellent as well. Surrounded by restaurants, pharmacies and supermarkets. Everything is walking distance. The metro is also right by the door and the hotel is about 20 to 40 minutes away from all the big tourist attractions, by public transit. I would […] go back. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
This hotel not only delivers good service and a decent place to stay but is in a really convenient location. Having arrived by Eurostar from London we caught the metro and after 30 minutes or so, with no changes, arrived right outside the hotel. Only a 15-20 minute trip on the metro to the major tourist destinations. Very good value for money and helpful […] staff. The patisserie right next door is also a big bonus. And the little Thai takaway a few doors down deserves a mention. There is lots of restaurants in the area and two supermarkets very close by. Appeared to be a safe, clean residential area. Our rooms faced away from the road so very quiet apart from noisy guests allowing their doors to slam shut and shouting in the corridor but you can't blame the hotel for that. For a hotel in this price bracket I don't think you could do much better. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Location. This hotel is right in front of Port D'Orleans station on the No.4 line as well as T3 Tram. Also the RER train is two stops away via the T3. Trés convenient! Bilingual service. We were greeted by helpful staff that despite our early showing was able to check us in earlier than the posted time. There have been attempts to restore the hotel, […] but it's age still shows through the contemporary painted walls. The rooms and washrooms are adequate and clean but are by no means Parisian-chic. We rested well, able to tackle Paris the next day. Rooms include WiFi. The free buffet continental breakfast was also a plus. Its saving grace is its location and, presents itself as good value. Would stay again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ideal location and very comfortable"
The hotel is ideally placed in a cool part of Paris with lots of nearby restaurants and cafes. It was comfortable and funky and clean. My only comment would be that the lift only goes down, not up which could be annoying if you were on one of the higher levels but it didn't really bother us. Overall, a great hotel with friendly staff in a good area […] :) Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Clean, modern and in a pleasant neighbourhood"
My partner and I spent the weekend at Hotel Ideal recently and had a good experience overall. It was right near the metro station and on the same line as Chatelet, St Germain and other useful stops for tourist destinations. The local area is what I would describe as a very nice, slightly upmarket inner city suburb - and not too touristy. The hotel room […] was clean, beds were comfortable, wifi worked well and the breakfast was fine too. I'd recommend this hotel for anyone staying in Paris on a short holiday.

"Nice hotel right next to Metro"
Three of us stayed in the Ideal Hotel in Porte D'Orleans. Room was very clean and good sized bathroom. Towels changed daily. Reception staff pleasant. Only down side was the room size which was really small for three people. However being next to the Metro was really useful and on the direct line to Gare du Nord for Eurostar.Genuine Expedia guest review
"so happy !"
We had a great time in Paris and the hotel was very good! A super breakfast we had ! The rooms are nice. Clean and nice beds. A litle noice at days in the halls, but quiet at night . The metro is right outside so good location. And helpfull staff! Thanks :)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"noisy and smoking"
The walls were not sound isolated and we could hear everything from behind the wall and the ceiling. The elevator was so small that barely could fit two people squeezed. The room service was OK, the personnel were OK too (nothing special). The location of the hotel is good. it is close to public transportation and grocery shopping. everything in the […] walking distance. Although it was suppose to be non-smoking room, the room smelled like smoke and it was much worst when somebody in the room beside us was smoking. The noise from the street was always on,specially the ambulance's and police's alarms. In general, regarding the price you pay in an expensive city, the price was OK.

Great hotel in a great location, line 4(main metro line) is just outside the hotel which makes commuting easy. Breakfast is good. I strongly recommend this hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"close to all must see sights"
very goodGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We should have thought to ask for a non-smoking room as it was pretty musty and we had to keep the window open. There was no air con or fan and it was pretty hot, and keeping the window open was noisy as it is above an intersection with horns blaring all the time. Very close to the metro which was great, good location for getting around. A nice bakery […] near by. The shower was quite small. Safe feeling area. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A great spot"
I found this hotel to be great. We arrived 2 hours before check in and they kindly held our luggage in a storage room, the staff were friendly and could speak English to varying degrees but all could communicate well to me having little to no French myself. The room was great and the bed was very very comfy! It was right beside a metro stop and the […] most delightful bakery going. And a lidl up the road for anything u might need. The only draw back is, that if u open the window at night due to heat, it is near a busy junction and is a little bit noisy, but thats to be expected in any city! Would recommend and would stay again Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Web pictures make it look better than it really is"
The photos of the hotel online made it look cool and modern. The rooms, although having modern decor, we're very simple and plain. The hotel is on 7 floors with a narrow winding staircase, and a miniature elevator that literally hold one person with bags or two without. Quite disappointing.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A GREAT MODERN HOTEL"
We had a family room which was very spacious and you could not fault the cleanliness of the room off which had their own unique design of a modern French boudoir.Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel is on a main road, parking two streets away, but metro right opposite. There are no frills with this hotel, do not go to this hotel in the summer, there is NO air con or ventilation at all in the room. If you open the windows the noise from the traffic is intrusive.

On the outskirts, however the metro station is right outside the hotel. We had a room on the 5th floor that overlooked the street, with two sets of french windows, lovely!

From previous trips to Paris this was the first time from 3-5 star that i had such genuine and positive service. The hotel is ever so slightly shabby sheik artsy. great breakfast great aervice smallish shower lots of towels and hot water. The price less than half of what i usally pay close to metro. There was a restaraunt Auto Passion nice food great […] price the Ocean Salad full of lox mussels shrimp for 15 euros Again, anyone from NAmerica who has been to Paris knows that genuine helpful and approachable staff in a hotel are the exception not the rule. 2 thumbs up!!!!

"Small but perfectly formed!"
Small but perfectly adequate. Nice and clean with very friendly, helpful staff. Location is great if you are travelling into Paris via Metro as it is literally metres away from the station! Nice area, with lots of nice restaurants, although it is a bit of a walk into the main hub of the city. It probably takes 45 mins to an hour to walk to the Eiffel […] tower for example, but that said it is such a lovely city it is a nice walk, especially if the sun is shining!
