...Our room was on the 3rd floor, # 16.It was so charming, no tv, a beautiful piano and
an armoire to die for.Two single beds in the room with the piano, an elegant writing desk, a dresser, and a vanity table. A double bed, writing table,
nightstands, and the armoire were in the room we slept in. Wood timber supports between rooms and in the celling, and cherry wood window casements. Two rooms
and a bath for this price can't be that!
Another guest :
... The hotel has a great deal of character. Our room had exposed beams and antique furniture. There was no elevator so we had to climb
steps. This may be a problem for some people, but in a lot of hotels/B&Bs that are this old, this is normal. Anna, the owner of the hotel is very nice and helpful (and speaks English). The
hotel is in an excellent location...
.However, the rooms are EXTREMELY spacious
(especially for Paris), which was great for us and made up for these shortcomings. Highly recommended...
A new one !
This was my third stay at Hotel Stella, and I still love it as much as ever.
Hotel Stella isn't for everyone. For those who favor modern hotels with modern conveniences---elevators, a 24 hour concierge service, spiffy new furniture, television and no quirks or
surprises---you'd best look elsewhere. There are plenty of chain and independent hotels in and around Paris to suit your taste.
But, if you love the idea of experiencing the charm of old Paris, and don't mind climbing some winding stairs to get there, Hotel Stella is a delight. This seventeenth century building has
exposed beams and the kind of decor you don't see much in Paris hotels any more: flowered wallpaper, oriental rugs, ancient armoires and (if you reserve a big room) even a couple of
not-very-functional old pianos!
The rooms are a decent size (the triple/quadruple rooms are really spacious for Paris!); the neighborhood
is attractive, with many small businesses and restaurants. Best of all, this hotel is very affordable by Paris standards. The proprietors (who speak good English) are pleasant and helpful. They
do request that payment be made in cash, at the end of your stay.
The Luxembourg RER stop, and the Odeon metro stop, are within easy walking distance of the hotel. There are many cafes in the area that serve breakfast.
