Hotel review: Au-Royal Cardinal

Our hotel room in Paris was pretty nice – even bigger than the one in London. No nightmares so far like the tiny box Adrian and I had in Barcelona.

The Au-Royal Cardinal offered us a really nice, clean room, with a big bathroom and two balcony windows. The windows provided some much-needed ventilation since it’s been non-stop hotness since we arrived in Europe.

Our hotel was a short walk from the Notre Dame & Ile St. Louis, which are not bad landmarks to be near. There was also a metro stop (Cardinal Lemoine)Β literally a block away which got us to all the major attractions.

Unfortunately, the location of the Au-Royal Cardinal is ridiculously noisy right now. I never really understood why noise was such an issue for some people on hotel review sites, but now I get it! Between the traffic, the people and the construction site outside our window, it was actually hard to fall asleep. The jack-hammering was borderline funny in its absurdity.

Other than that, I did actually really like the hotel:

  1. It has an elevator
  2. It has balcony windows – one of which is in the bathroom, which is a blessing
  3. It has a safe (that’s free and that actually works!)
  4. The staff was really helpful and answered our many questions. One guy even told me I was very beautiful (thank you for the self-esteem boost)!
  5. It was close to a number of major attractions, and close to public transportation that got us to the further attractions.
