There are certain hotels that we recommend without any hesitation. The two-star Hôtel Jeanne d’Arc, located on a tiny little street in the Marais near the Place des Vosges, is such a place. If you’re looking for something cozy and “French countryside,” Jeanne d’Arc might be the saint you’ve been praying for.

Pros: Funky-Provençal charm. Darling Marais location, just off a square. Very reasonable rates.

Cons: Rooms rather small. No eating in the rooms.

Review

Throughout the hotel, the Jeanne d'Arc coolly meshes old fashioned paintings and maps with playful modern pieces. The first floor is made up of a lobby, a reading room and a dining room that have “gone Baroque” and are chock-full of art, chandeliers, board games, books and flea market finds.

The Hotel Jeanne d’Arc’s 35 small rooms crackle with yellow and orange walls that conjure up textiles from Provence. Rooms are furnished with modern nightstands, headboards and desks, along with some shabby-chic details like hand-painted flowers and lightning bug drawer pulls. A telephone and flat-screen TV are standard throughout. (There is no air conditioning, but fans are provided in warmer months.)

Most rooms open to the small streets surrounding the hotel, which are usually quiet. Light sleepers should note that windows will probably be open during the summer, and there may be some passing loudmouths or scooters. (Although when we last visited in late 2013 the only thing we heard during the day was a nearby musician practicing his violin.) Still, if noise is a concern, there are a limited number of rooms on an interior air shaft that are quieter, although the view is far less charming.

A renovation a few years ago added a handicap-accessible room to the ground floor and replaced the carpets in three rooms with hypoallergenic tiling (request ahead). These rooms also sport a more modern design than the rest of the hotel.

Private bathrooms, equipped in all rooms, vary in size and design, but are all spotless and many have windows that offer panoramic street and rooftop views. Bathtubs are available (request ahead).

Hotel services

The fanciful (and massive) mosaic mirror in the dining room dominates the hotel’s breakfast (€8). Wi-Fi is available, but works best on the ground level, and there is an Internet station in the lobby, both free.

One warning to Cheapos who like to snack in their rooms: The hotel has a “no picnicking in the rooms" policy, as posted in every room. To bad, as there are some great food markets nearby...

The hotel management and staff are amiable, helpful and fluent in English.

Location

The Hotel Jeanne d’Arc is located on the tiny rue Jarente, just off the picturesque Marché Sainte Catherine, a small square lined with restaurants. The hotel is ideally situated for travelers eager to wander the neighborhood’s streets, taking in the shops and restaurants. The regal Place des Vosges is one block east of the hotel, and the Place de la Bastille is also just five minutes away.

Metro: The hotel is two minutes from the Saint-Paul Metro Stop (line 1).

Other "Jeannes"

Note that this isn't the only Jeanne d'Arc in town. There's also a three-star Grand Hotel Jeanne d'Arc in the 13th. That hotel is more expensive and not on our list of recommended budget sleeps.
