The Hotel du Cygne is a two-star cheapo standard, a budget-friendly pick with a super convenient location just two blocks from the Les Halles Metro stop.
Pros: Clean, well-equipped rooms. Very convenient location.
Cons: Street-side rooms can be loud. Lively neighborhood may seem sketchy to some.
This swan (“cygne”) is one old girl. The building was constructed in the late 17th century, a fact that has its pluses and minuses. It allows for wooden beams in six rooms, smallish room dimensions, sturdy walls and no elevator.
The 20 rooms are pretty-ish and comfortable, although un-fancy. Think cream walls, wooden paneling and ho-hum yellow bedspreads and curtains. Prints dress up the walls a bit and double-paned windows should keep out much of the street noise. (As the area can be lively at night, especially on the weekends, light sleepers should ask for a room on a higher floor or one of the twins facing the courtyard.)
All rooms are equipped with a flat-screen satellite TV, telephone, safe and free Wi-Fi. And all rooms (except two cheapo singles) have a small private bath, equipped with a shower or rub and hair dryer. (The two cheapo singles share one bathroom.)
Downstairs, a street-level lounge with stone walls and wooden beams offers a friendly welcome. Head through the small courtyard (with its swan planters) to the charming and cozy breakfast room. At €8 for breakfast, the Swan isn’t taking you for a ride.
While we find the area around the Cygne to be "lively" and convenient, others may find it simply sketchy at night. Rue St-Denis, a favorite for red light establishments that would make your mother blush, is right around the corner. However, you're in the very heart of Paris. Be smart and it's all quite safe.
The Hotel du Cygne is a friendly place with a great location. We appreciate that it hasn’t gone fancy on us—it continues to offer clean, standard (if smallish) rooms at affordable rates. This is one swan we don’t want to sing.
