Thank you very much for your nice comment ! The hotel Istria staff appreciates to read you have enjoyed your stay here and some of the services we propose ! Look forward to welcoming you again, Regards
I have been coming to this hotel for the last 3 years in March. Though the rooms can be small, which is quiet common in Europe, I found the location, price, and the friendly nature of the staff to be extremely helpful for this solo traveller. With some fantastic restaurants nearby the Istria is certainly a hotel to rest your head
Thanks you a lot for this nice comment ! We are glad to read you come and visit us every year ! Look forward to welcoming you next time, Kind regards
We chose this hotel because of its price & location. It is just across the street from a train station. Easy access to all parts of the city. Yes the room was small , but as we do not spend much time in the room, it was not a problem for us. The staff was polite and helpful, the room was clean, and the mattress was very comfortable. For the price, it was great! We prefer to spend less on our hotel and have more to spend on food & drink.
Un grand merci pour ce commentaire si positif, nous sommes ravis de lire que vous avez apprécié votre séjour !
Nous espérons avoir l'occasion de vous accueillir à nouveau,
The rooms are tiny even the delux room. You walk into the door and almost fall into the bed. There is almost no other furniture, there is even no real closet- just couple of shelves and hangers with no door. The bathroom is very old and smelly, there is no shower curtain or a hook to hang a shower, so you end up keeping the shower in your hand and trying not to have all the water running into the floor. We go the room that was located on the second floor of the internal yard, the entrance to the room was from a small passage/balcony, so it felt like a side-road motel in US. It was not possible to keep the windows open because one could just step into the room through the window. It was not possible to keep the windows open because one could just step into the room through the window. The personnel was not helpful when I complained about the AC, the smell in the room and the lack of a shower curtain. The cleaning staff tried their best to keep the property clean as much as it is possible in such an warned- out building
Location is probably the only advantage of the hotel- it is just steps from the metro and 15-20 minutes walk to most attractions in the Latin quarter
Dear Sir or Madam,
We thank you for taking time writing us concerning your stay but are sorry to read such a disappointment. We're going to answer you precisely.
- the first issue you mentioned is the small room you stayed in : we are sorry to tell you that it is mostly the case in historical parisian hotels like the Hotel Istria. It's true that rooms are not as big as we wish but we want to offer a huge and comfortable bed to our clients so that they sleep well.
- the second issue you mentioned is the bathroom : we have noticed the problem and it's now fixed, thanks to clients feedbacks like yours and we thank you for that.
- the third issue you mentioned is the room in the internal yard : we're sorry to read you didn't appreciate it. Most of our clients enjoy its cuteness, peacefulness and charm.
We're also sorry to hear about the unhelpful staff, we'll inform the Director but be sure we all want your stay to be the most comfortable and nice possible.
The hotel is located near the metro station, very easy and convenient.
This small and intimate, very conveys the atmosphere of romantic Paris ...
Rooms are small, but cozy and clean, and well-equipped.
The staff is very kind and helpful.
We did not take breakfast, because it was expensive in our opinion. It is better to eat in the cafe area.
You should go to the Tower Monfrns- 7 minutes on foot, there are dozens of restaurants and cafes and places of entertainment.
In short - highly recommended!
Un grand merci pour votre commentaire très positif à notre égard, nous sommes ravis que vous ayez apprécié votre séjour dans notre petit hôtel familial, qui bénéficie qui plus est d'une réelle histoire littéraire et artistique !
Dans l'attente de vous accueillir à nouveau, toute l'équipe de l'hôtel Istria vous prie de recevoir ses meilleures salutations.
We booked this hotel because of the location. There was a Metro (Raspail line 4) 100 meter from the hotel. we didn't really see any decent restaurant nearby the hotel. We had to walk 1 mile going to Montparnasse. We got the standard room for a decent prize however the room was really small. We don't recommend it to a family of 3. We only have 1 big luggage and we don't even know where to put it. Breakfast was 12 euro, it was ok nothing special but it was convenient for us. They don't have laundry here and if you have car you have to pay the parking machine right outside the hotel (if you got lucky to find one). Overall experience it was OK. Staff were very helpful with all our queries. You can also book the shuttle thru them to drop you off at the airport (18 Euro/adult). It was really helpful and I think only 2 Euro more than taking the metro and train. We got really exhausted when we arrive because of all the transfer and it took us 1hr or more from the airport to the hotel when we chose to take the train and metro. We highly suggest taking the shuttle.
Breakfast was too expensive for a plain selection. Housekeeping doesn't speak english at all, but with sign language you'll be fine. The hotel also have elevator (as most of the small hotel doesn't) so it was a plus. Wifi works great in the lobby and in the room.
P.S the wall in this hotel was not sound proof. I could hear someone snoring at the middle of the night. Thought it was funny but annoying if it lasted for a while.
