Good hotel well situated

Posted 11-Jun-2014
Pros: Clean, convenient, helpful staff, generous breakfast, quiet.
Cons: The outlook from the window was pretty awful, just a drab concrete wall.
Location: 100m from the metro station, 2 stops from the Opera House and Galleries Lafayette.
This hotel was perfect for our 6 day stay in Paris. I booked through secret hotels scheme so it worked out good value for money. It would have been fairly pricey otherwise.

Disappointed overall.

Posted 02-Jun-2014
Pros: Nothing to be honest. Again, disappointed overall.
Cons: Everything that i mentioned above and making the reviews more accurate rather for future customers.
The only positive that my wife and I can say about this hotel is how close the metro was. The hotel staff was not friendly, seemed "not there" when it came to helping the customers out. The AC was not working and the hotel gave their poor explanation why they couldnt turn on the AC. Rooms are small. Not a safe area at night if you are planning on walking to or out of the hotel. Not a great place to stay nor would we ever recommend any of our friends to stay here. Disappointed overall using Expedia and reading the overall reviews. Usually, Expedia does an great job hitting the spot. You missed on this unfortunately.

Great location for a short break

Posted 26-Feb-2013
We enjoyed our three night stay at the hotel in a comfortable and attractive room. There were also comfortable reception/ bar areas to sit in if needed at other times, with newspapers provided. Breakfast was well presented with cereals, yoghurts, cold meats/cheese, boiled eggs and a selection of bread rolls and pastries.Served till 11am, this was welcome after late night sightseeing. Staff were friendly and happy to store bags beyond the 12 o clock check out on our last day. A five minute walk to the Cadet metro makes it a great location, with local sandwich/pastry shops on the way to pick up tasty supplies for later.

My review

Posted 19-Nov-2012
Pros: Breakfast waiter service
Cons: Size of my room 508
Location: Convenient for my purpose
I think I had a converted box room on the 5th floor - it was a very small room with inadequate cupboard space The staff were very helpful I'm not sure that the photos actually represent the hotel frontage The wifi in the rooms was accessible, but slow - much better in the lounge area

Hotel l'ocean

Posted 08-Oct-2012 on Hotels.com
I've never expected much from hotel rooms in Paris, having been there multiple times for business and pleasure. And I was once again underwhelmed. It looked ok on the website and had got some decent reviews, but I wouldn't return to this place not would I recommend it to anyone I liked. Breakfast was fine (included), some of the help were nice but others were very rude especially at check in. My safe was broken and I had to wait for three hours for them to fix it, cutting into my sightseeing and visiting with family. The repairman was very helpful (finally reinstalled a new safe) and I was on my way. The neighborhood around the hotel has been diminishing over time and was proven again in this trip. Next time I will go back to the 5th or 6th erondisememt.

would not recomend

Posted 12-Jun-2012 on Hotels.com
Hotel not reccomended , not good service or room, booked a double and got a twin and they would not change it, room very tired and bathrooms need updating. This hotel was very expensive for a three star, there are plenty of other hotels that are better in the area.

Hotel De L'Ocean in Paris

Posted 03-Sep-2011 on Hotels.com
This was a blind reservation...had never been in Paris or France before. Only had a basic understanding of the Paris neighbourhoods. This hotel is on a quiet cul de sac very close to Rue La Fayette, and a small park. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful (even when we asked to switch from the 2 twin beds to a room with a double bed), and the hotel is clean and very comfortable. Our room faced the back of the hotel, so a front facing room may have more street noise. The breakfast was a cross between the traditional French pastry and coffee with meats and cheeses, and fresh fruit. The hotel is close to the Gallery La Fayette and was walking distance (we are avid walkers) to the Seine and the Louvre. I give this hotel a strong recommendation and we are were very pleased with our stay.

Reasonable, clean and comfortable

Posted 15-Aug-2011 on Hotels.com
Room - basic but clean and big enough for comfort. 'Double' bed was actually two singles pushed together, but comfortable nonetheless. We had a room overlooking the street but the street is fairly quiet and it certainly didn't disturb our sleep. Staff were friendly and helpful. Location is handy for Gare du Nord and Metro is 5 minutes walk away for a short ride to central Paris. A couple of decent restaurants nearby for evening meals. Hotel breakfast is nothing to write home about and best avoided if possible. Summary - if you're looking for a reasonable hotel in central Paris for a couple of nights' stay, this will fit the bill.
