I recently stayed at this Hotel Helios ( Sept 24- Oct 4 ). I was traveling with a friend and her travel agent suggested this hotel. I was extremely pleased with everything!! Clarissa at the front desk is very helpful and gave me perfect directions and always answered any questions I had. The hotel is conveniently located in walking distance ( some are long walks, mind you) to just about all the major attractions. Montmartre is approximately 20 minutes , the Notre Dame/Pompidou center is about 45 minutes and the Tullieries are also about 30 minutes walk. If you prefer there is always the subway which is a 5 minute walk from the hotel. There are plenty of little cafés and shops around to get something to eat. My room was 401 and I found it to be perfect. By American standards it would be considered small, but I found it perfect and I wasn't paying for things I didn't need (ex. Pool, gym etc). To describe the room it was approximately 20 ft long by 10 ft wide. It was divided into two sections. When first upon opening the door a full bath is immediately to the right, if you walk straight thru the door past the bath the queen/full size bed is to the right . There is a small desk which has a hot pot and coffee/ tea supplies in it, a chair and across from the desk is a wardrobe with shelves,a safe and a small fridge with drinks. There is also a small balcony with large French windows that opens up. I found this room to be perfect for one person. I plan on coming back.

The staff, especially Helene, were great to deal with. They helped us maneuver around the city with ease. The location allowed us to walk to the Louvre and D'Orsay museums rather easily. Only down side is there is not much drawer space for clothing. Very clean. Not too many amenities. Right for the price.

I am so glad I found this hotel and will definitely stay again.
This is the best 3 star Hotel I have yet found in Paris. It offers excellent value for money compared to other 3 stars I've stayed in which I found to be rather basic, shabby and run down and not really comparable to a 3 star in the UK. By contrast this hotel was very pleasant, comfortable and nicely renovated - they've gone to the trouble to refurbish the rooms and bathrooms properly, to a high standard with good quality fixtures and fittings and have really considered the needs of their guests. The room had AC, kettle, complementary tea and coffee a mini bar and satelite TV which included BBC World and CNN (these are not things I have found in other 3 star hotels I stayed in). Despite it being a single room it had a nice sized bathroom with a bathtub as well as a shower. This all made the room a pleasant place to relax rather than just somewhere to crash out and spend the minimum of time in.
The location was ideal too within 10 - 15 mins walk of the big shops and 15 - 20 mins walk from the Louvre/Tuilleries and a 2 minute walk from the nearest Metro. There area was buzzing with activity and had a variety of shops, bars/cafes and places to eat right on the doorstep. I came back late at night (after midnight in most cases) and felt completely safe here.
The staff were all lovely too. Very friendly and helpful. They were more than happy to offer advice when I needed it.

Good room, lots of storage, air conditioning excellent. Easy to use ecpresso/hot water machine in room makes really good expresso. Location of hotel very good for walking and transit. Small supermarket just a block away. Small fridge in room. Only lacked a microwave.
I was worried that the price was high for a small room but it turned out to be a good value for three or even four people.
I was quite pleased.

We enjoyed our stay at the Madeleleine Haussmann Hotel. Front desk staff was friendly. A couple of the front desk staff people were very helpful! When we needed to arrange transportation back to the airport, they called and arranged it for us. Also, when we needed to print out a couple of documents they were more than accommodating. When asking directions to the metro and other areas they were very knowledgeable, provided maps, and drew directions on paper for us. Very much appreciated!
The room was clean, nicely decorated, and the beds were very comfortable. The bathroom was also very clean. The air conditioner worked great - although when we were there the weather was quite mild. Overall the room was small, but that is to be expected in Paris I believe. It was nice that the windows opened to let in the fresh air.
The hotel offers breakfast, which we took advantage of for a couple days. There is a server who will bring you coffee and warm milk. The rest of the breakfast is self-serve. They offered different sliced meats, and cheeses, yogurts, cereal, breads, croissants, and pastries. You will not leave hungry. It was a reasonable price, convenient, and perfect to start the day off.
The hotel was located in a nice area and close to a metro station. If you like to walk, it is within walking distance of many of the tourist sites. We walked down the Champs-Elysees to the Arc de Triumph, walked to the Louvre, Place de la Concorde, ect. Great hotel!
