Great hotel with fantastic location next to 3 different metro stops. Not far from the main train station and quite few places to visit. Very friendly and helpful staff.Very comfortable beds and nice big windows.

I stayed there on a recent business trip to Paris. It was actually my first time in Paris, so the concierge team was very friendly and helpful. Great recommendations on local shops, restaurants, and sights. This place is your typical Parisian boutique hotel - everything is small from the elevator and hallways to the rooms and bath. But that didnt matter so much to me. I considered it part of the charm, and I was only there to sleep. Would definitely stay here on my next work trip.

If you're looking for a standard hotel in a decent part of Paris that is accessible via train, taxi or walking distance to some of the shopping, restaurants and Paris sites, then Hotel Regence is not a bad option. A little too costly for a standard room in my estimation. The small lobby area is the nicest part of this hotel. The 'restaurant' is located in the basement area and can accommodate about 8 persons seated. This meal option wasn't one that my husband or I chose to use - at a cost of almost 14 euro, we opted for more affordable choices outside the hotel. If you've never been to Europe before, be prepared for the very small lift and the narrow and dank corridors leading to the rooms. There was a cleaning service available and the room was comfortable for my husband and me. The lady at reception was very helpful in terms of her recommendations and spoke English very well.
This establishment should literally be condemed

We came here via an Expedia listing that claimed the place was a 3.5 Star hotel. I cant begin to list the atrocities of this place. It is in a rough neighborhood with street people and beggars (hard to find in Paris, but they are here). They are doing subway construction literally right in front of the hotel entrance---so be prepared to haul your bags for 3/4's of a block to check in. The clerks are extremely indifferent to your presence or comfort. We were sent to a room that (literally) had thick dark dirt all over the ceiling and on the carpet. The chair was broken (I am not heavy and I almost broke my neck sitting in it as it caved in. The walls had tons on knife holes in it, and slices of wallpaper. It stunk. It was terrible. We were put in this room (I believe) due to racism on the part of the clerk. Seeing my wife is black, he sent us to a room not fit for livestock. When we complained, he moved us to a "nicer" room, which was still quite bad. Only Charlie Chaplin could fit in the "elevator" and when it gets to the 4th and 5th floors, it is pitch black in the hallway. You cant see your hand in front of your face. It is scary. The internet sucks. And, due to the construction in front, be prepared to wake up in the morning to the not so soothing sound of jackhammers. The place was so decrepit it literally should just be demolished by the Parisian health authorities. If my French was descent I would have called. Though this review is terrible, there in not a gram of hyperbole in it. And it is not the worst. Read the one of the poor gent whose wife is disabled and she had to crawl on the filthy carpet during their stay around Christmas. It makes you want to cry. I wish I had taken the time to really go through the reviews before paying for this dump---Nearly 140 US Dollars. Granted, there are some sketchy old beat up hotels in Paris, but I cannot imagine one worst than this.
Terrible experience- avoid this hotel

Bad experience- booked cycle reservation in advance but on arrival there was none and me and my friend were made to feel an inconvenience.
Hotel outside a building site and main road, very noisy. Room very hot so kept window open but so noisy couldn't sleep.
Breakfast poor - 'fresh fruit' old and fruit salad contained old fruit. I asked for something fresh and I was asked whether I was on a diet. The bread tasted stale.
All in all a poor experience and not worth the 100 euros or the 3 stars associated with the hotel; price was grossly excessive and staff very unhelpful.
