The fact that there is only a sink inside the bedroom (no toilette or shower) can be a problem but as I only spent one night there it was not a big deal. Stairs can be a problem for some people. Great bed and location! Best price I could find so I would recommend.

We thought it was a funky little budget hotel in a great location. Didien made us feel very welcome and the room was always cleaned. We were not charged for showers as they were renovating at the time - personally we think no hotel should ever charge for showers. Also a kettle/hotjug in the kitchenette would be welcome. We thank Didien and the hotel for the hospitality - something travellers alway look forward to.

Very helpful and friendly staff. The room was generally clean but the hair in the bed was a bit unsettling. The location near the vibey streets of the Latin Quarter was excellent. would definitely stay here again.

Great stay at this hostel. No breakfast included unfortunately, however there's crockery/cutlery you can use. Only downside was the construction work being done right outside our window which brought along noise and some very strong smells. Room was clean and plenty of room with a personal bathroom. Showerhead could not be attached to the wall which was a bit inconvenient, and the bed was a bit hard. But overall you get a good experience for your money. Can recommend to students/backpackers!


Great location right by Notre Dame Cathedral and perfect for just sleeping. Helpful staff and printer in the lobby for printing boarding passes. Our only complaint was the weird smells that we think came from the bathroom shower. We had to keep the door to the room closed.

The location is very good, but the rooms have no air conditioning or ventilators. The street is very crowded and loud, so we couldn't sleep before 1:00, because of the heat. The showers are paid separately and you have to go downstairs to take the shower. Not very interesting. We asked the staff for a ventilator or a room change and nothing was done.


The hotel is on a perfect location to visit Paris, it has a metro station on a 3-minute walk and also the St michel RER on a 7-minute walk so on terms on location is very good, accesible and easy to move around. The rooms were quite small and they were not very nice, the lobby is the only nice thing on this hotel, they don't clean your room unless you are staying for more than 7 days, the room also smell like moisture all the time. The lady at the fro t desk is nice and helpful.


Definitely, fantastic location! For sure, if you are staying on the 4th floor, as i did, walking up and down with luggage will be a bit special :) But its a nice place with affordable prices. However, I wish the staff could be a bit more friendly and client-orientated. The only exception was an man in glasses who worked at night - he told us about the day of music. However this place is highly recommeded.


good location but the hotel's staff was impolite, asking to call the taxi but got refuse, told us walk to the taxi station. The room was small and dirty.

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at Hotel du Commerce! It was a very quint, lovely place to stay in a great location! The staff was always very nice and accomodating; we definitely intend on returning!


Staff is somewhat serious and dont seem happy at talking to guests and guiding them where to go. When you come back to the hotel, all you have to say is the room number and they will give you key without any identification that it is in fact your room. This hotel is good if there is absolutley nothing else around and for short stays. Our room was on "fifth" floor (it was actually 6, they dont count lobby as first floor) with no elevator. Not a problem for us, just a heads up for people who can't


The hotel is ok, but if you don't have a private bathroom there are only 2 showers for the entire hotel in the ground floor, there are no elevators, the black receptionist is not very kind (at all), they don't accept credit card, but overall the location is good.
