What makes the Hotel de la Porte Doree so Darn Good? The Hotel de la Porte Doree just might be the best deal in Paris. The decor is a beautiful and tasteful blend of antique and modern, and the atmosphere is that of a warm and cozy bed and breakfast.

Location: The hotel is located in a real local neighborhood in the 12th arrondissement, a few minutes walk from Bois de Vincennes, Paris’s largest park, complete with a 14th century chateau and several lakes perfect for taking out a rowboat. While the hotel may seem far removed from downtown, the Porte Doree metro station on line 8 is just outside the front door, bringing the sites of Paris to within a twenty minute journey.

Rooms: Each of the rooms at Hotel de la Porte Doree is artfully decorated with vintage antique furniture so that no two rooms are alike, yet all have a clean, modern feel with old world charm. The hotel has a green mission: they recycle (which is apparently not so common in Paris), have a soap pump dispenser in the shower (a cute one), use environmentally-friendly cleaning products, and have motion-activated lights in the hallways.

Food: The hotel offers a breakfast buffet available for ten Euros per person. The pastries come from the boulangerie across the street, and they serve fruit fresh from local markets. The neighborhood has several restaurants for lunch and dinner, but for a greater selection, head to the Bastille area, just a short metro ride away.

Vibe: The staff was friendly and helpful throughout my stay.

Keep in Mind: Porte Doree is technically a 2 star hotel, but in every respect, it is a 3 star hotel, and they are currently filing paperwork for that upgrade!
