Hotel Arvor review – stylish homely Paris hotel (with video)

France Hotels

I mentioned Hotel Arvor in my list of cheap and stylish Paris hotels before but hadn’t had the opportunity to stay there for a while.  When I learned I had to go to Paris for a business trip in December, I jumped at the opportunity to go back there and take photos and videos for you.

Here is all the information you need to know.

My review

Bedrooms and video tour!

Simply designed but in a way that still makes them comfortable and welcoming. You can have single bedrooms but also ask for the family suite which is a nice double bedroom with a separate room off the entrance where a little bed can be made for your child.

See what my double room looked like in this video tour (by the way, when I travel, I always try to do a live video tour of the hotels I stay in via Periscope so go and follow me there!).

Family services

I mentioned before that we went there with Mademoiselle when she was about 3 I think and we had one of the bigger rooms.  The staff were really helpful and nice with her.  This time, I noted in the in-room booklet that they can help with bottle warming and also find babysitters.

Food

The hotel doesn’t have a restaurant but they have a simple room service menu if you feel peckish in the evening and don’t/can’t go out.

Breakfast is one of my favourite things there. Fresh orange juice, a home made cake, some ham, cheese, of course great pastries and bread with butter and jam.  The tea is from Marriage Frères, the great French tea brand.  You can have breakfast until 10:30. The mostly white and bright colours room wakes you up gently and gives you energy as soon as you walk in.

Location

Located a 3 min walk from the Saint Georges tube station, the hotel is really easy to get to from Gare du Nord if you come from London . It also has two other main tube stations nearby (Pigalle and Notre Dame de Lorette) which take you quickly to the big department stores or Saint Germain des Prés (just exit at Sevres-Babylone).  You can walk up to Pigalle and Montmartre and do a lot of food shopping like if you were living in Paris in rue des Martyrs.

Atmosphere

Because of the relatively low number of rooms and the warm welcome they offer you each time, the hotel really gives you the feeling that you are staying with friends.

People at reception are very helpful, relaxed and you can come back and stay in one of the nice white sofas and treat yourself to coffee and tea as if you were at home.

Told you I was a fan!
