Comfortable, convenient, reasonably priced! Posted 26-Jun-2014
The hotel was very clean, with comfortable beds and friendly, helpful staff! The location felt very safe and was within walking distance to the metro at Gare de Lyon, and RER at Austerlitz, especially for travelling to Versaille. The hotel area was near many good restaurants, grocery stores, bakeries, and laundry facilities. We were able to find everything we needed and wanted close by. The Hotel de Venise was our home away from home and a convenient base for visiting Paris. We enjoyed the more relaxing pace away from the maddening crowds of tourists and the opportunity to become temporary Parisiens. We strolled the promenade and observed Parisiens at work and play. The rooms are small like ALL European hotels but newly renovated and tastefully decorated. The hotel staff went out of their way to help us with making our visit to Paris a pleasure. The staff was patient, extremely interested in helping us with all our plans and making us feel very welcomed. Their friendly greetings with a smile and conversation in French or English was much appreciated. We highly recommend this hotel. The Hotel de Venise room cost is extremely good value for the comfort, convenience and friendly service.
