Bottom Line

The two-pearl, 52-room Touring Hotel is in Paris’ 9th Arrondissement, a 15-minute walk from the Opera Garnier and Gare du Nord. This budget-friendly option has a small outdoor patio and the hotel's clean and basic rooms have en-suite bathrooms. Some rooms also have balconies, but there is no air-conditioning and safes cost extra. Wi-Fi is free, though breakfast is not included, and guests have mentioned that the hotel’s elevator is cramped. Guests desiring a more central location and extra amenities should consider the Hotel Du Louvre, with its restaurant, bar, and fitness center, though rates are higher.

Scene

A cozy hotel with a classic vibe

The Touring Hotel resides in a traditionally Parisian limestone building with a red awning and black wrought iron balconies. Molding, antique light fixtures, and yellow striped wallpaper are featured throughout most of the hotel's common areas, from the lobby to the lounge. In the basement, stone walls line the cozy breakfast room, while a landscape mural and wood chairs add to the homey feel; however, there are no windows. A small outdoor patio has potted plants and seating, and while this is an elevator building, guests complain that the elevator is small. The hotel most frequently sees couples, though many families stay here as well.

Location

In the 9th Arrondissement -- walk to Opera Garnier and three metro stations

On a quiet street in a lively neighborhood in Paris’ 9th Arrondissement, the hotel is within a quick walk of restaurants, bars, and shops, plus three metro stations as well as the famous Folies Bergere are five minutes or less away on foot. Gare du Nord as well as the Opera Garnier and Galeries Lafayette department store are a 15-minute walk from the hotel, while Paris highlights such as Montmartre, the Louvre, and the Tuileries Garden are a 10-minute car ride (though all can be reached by metro as well and are within a 20-minute walk). The Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, and Sacre-Coeur are a 15-minute drive from the hotel, and both Charles de Gaulle Airport and Orly airports are 30 minutes away by taxi, though this varies depending on traffic.

Rooms

Traditional Parisian style with en-suite bathrooms; some have balconies

Clean Single through Quadruple Rooms look similar to the hotel's common areas, with a traditional style and red-and-yellow motif that's a bit dated. Watercolor paintings of famous Parisian sights, striped wallpaper, and white wainscoting create a cozy and traditional atmosphere, and patterned red carpets match the old-school red bedspreads. Furniture has generically classic lines and comes in warm wood tones. All rooms have telephones and wall-mounted flat-screen TVs. Some larger rooms have balconies, but there is no air-conditioning and safes cost extra. En-suite gray and brown tile bathrooms are clean, but a bit tired, with tile shower/tubs and toiletries.

Features

Free Wi-Fi plus computer station and 24-hour front desk

The front desk is open 24 hours a day and can provide concierge services. There is also a computer in the lounge and Wi-Fi is free throughout the hotel. Breakfast includes pastries, yogurt, pancakes, eggs, and fruit, but costs extra. There is no on-site parking; guests must use nearby public parking for a daily fee if they have a car. The hotel can also hold luggage.
