Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ordie36 Honeymoon in Paris
My wife and I stayed at The Holiday Inn Notre Dame for 4 nights. We arrived early as our flight from Canada landed at 1030 am. When we arrived our room was not ready and although very tired we ventured out into the hotel area. One word for this hotel is LOCATION. You are in the heart of the 5th (Latin Quarter) You are minutes to the Seine and Notre Dame. There are fantastic cafes surrounding the hotel. We experienced our first Parisian cafe while our room was being prepared...The Le Fountaine Saint Michel (right beside the Saint Michel Fountains). Best escargot!!! We then headed up to see the rooftop - spectacular view of the city.
Finally in our room we were not disappointed. We were upgraded to an Eiffel Tower view.... Room 708 was a good size for Parisian standards and the view amazing. We had a balcony where we sat every morning and enjoyed our coffee and pasteries from the local shop around the corner from the hotel. At night we would watch the sunset over the Eiffel Tower as we sipped wine. Overall this was a great stay.
Our only complaint would be the service at the Rooftop Bar. It appears that the locals get preferential treatment. We watched the 'head bartender' socialize with what looked like his friends for 15 min intervals while the other 2 staff ran around trying to attend to the crowded bar. Watch what the bartender charges as well as we were charged 10 euros a drink the first night then they tried to charge us 14 euros the following night. Oddly the price on the menu was 8 euros. I brought this to the front desks attention at check out and they happily corrected our bill. The view from this bar is spectacular and it is a 'must see' just don't expect to be served drinks at your table.
If you want a great hotel with abundance of cafes, short walking distance to the Louvre, the Seine, Musee D'Orsay and Notre Dame then you need to stay here.

The location of this hotel was perfect for both business and leisure. I was able to use the metro to get to the office and was just a few steps away from the beautiful sights of Paris!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Arindam Excellent Location
For frequent travellers , especially those who travel for business I would recommend this property in spite of the fact that it would be looked upon as one located to attract tourists. The location gives you something to do after work , the rooftop bar is an excellent place to bring in guests , the breakfast is very good ( unexpectedly good ) , and the internet works well. The rooms are a little small but in Paris , that is more or less true for most hotels. Staff is competent . I was not too demanding and so cannot say how they hold up in a situation. But I am OK with the level of service offered . It is a little pricey though .

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TortillaTosser93 Great location and rooftop
Stayed here the night of Bastille Day and had an incredible opportunity to watch the fireworks all around the Eiffel Tower from the rooftop of the hotel. It will be an experience my wife and I remember for the rest of our lives. Hotel staff was very friendly and the room was comfortable with all the needed facilities. It is small, but very functionable. Almost identical to a cruise ship standard room. We also had a balcony on the 8th floor and it was excellent. Wine in the evening and coffee in the morning on the balcony was great. The Latin Quarter is also a great location as it is what you imagine Paris to be and tons of character. Incidentally, we stayed 2 nights in the Opera area and were disappointed at the lack of character there that we had experienced in the Latin Quarter. Fantastic stay and I would highly recommend this hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hydrocarbon Ideal situation
Perfectly situated near Isle de la Cite. Within walking distance of Louvre, Jardins de Tuileries etc.
Lots of restaurants in immediate vicinity.
Easy to reach by using RER from either airport.
Executive room had balcony with view of Eiffel Tower. Great for watching fireworks on Bastille Night.
Would certainly recommend this hotel to others.
