We spent 5 nights at the Cayre on our way in to France and another three at the end of our trip. We were given an upgrade to an executive room for the initial five night stay (I did not ask for this, it was just done). The hotel is in a perfect location in the geographical center of Paris, an easy walk to nearly everything. The Rue du Bac Metro station is 20 meters away. The non-executive room was on the small side but was more than adequate. Wonderful bathrooms with heated floors. There is clear attention to cleanliness and good maintenance. The staff were quite friendly and helpful. Breakfast is overpriced at 25 Euros (about $37) per person. However, the area is full of good cafes and bakeries, so you can have a wonderful cup of coffee and fresh pastry just down the block for about 5 Euros per person. As noted by prior reviewers, the Shell station in the building next door has a "mini market" which can be quite convenient. In sum, a wonderful experience.

We wanted a hotel for a 5 day romantic getaway, and the K+K Hotel Cayre more than filled the bill. The room, although smallish, was immaculate and stylishly decorated. The heated bathroom floors and flat screen TV were a plus. What really made the hotel exceptional was the staff. From the moment we checked in we were made to feel welcome. All of the front desk staff spoke excellent English and were more than happy to provide information about restaurants, shopping and transportation. A particularly good restaurant just a few blocks away is Le Petite Chaise. The Shell station convenience store truly is right next door and very convenient for bottled water, snacks and other sundries. Although the Metro stop right outside the front door was closed for renovations, there were 3 other stops within a 5 minute walk.

We asked for, and were given, a very nice room with a good view. The staff was friendly, reasonably helpful, but made a couple of mistakes, the worst of which was promising no problems getting a taxi for departure during the metro strike, only to find out that there was "Pas de taxi" at 6:00 a.m., on a cold, rainy Paris morning. My fiancee watched our luggage as I stood on a freezing street corner for almost an hour trying to hail a cab. The staff did send out a bellman to help on the opposite corner and between us we did manage to flag a cab, but it was a stressful start to a big travel day, and the desk clerk seemed content to play les incompetentes. The area is nice but not too much happening right around the hotel. I had booked the hotel partly because it was said to be "two blocks from the Louvre," but it is not (plan on at least a 10 mins. walk in ideal weather). Our room was very clean, very spaceous (for Paris), the cleaning staff efficient, courteous, and competent, the decor good to very good. I would stay here again in spring or summer, but might look for something in the Marais or St. Germain de Pres in colder months where more cafes, shopping, siteseeing, etc., is around the hotel. The Shell Station mini-market next to K&K should not be missed if you stay here. They bake their own baguettes, have excellent Italian smoked meats, excellent fruit, and good French table wines all at very reasonable prices. The hotel staff never complained about our dining in the room, or the mess we sometimes left. :-)
We enjoyed our stay. we were in walking distance of many museums. the metro was less than 100yrds from the hotel and easy to traverse to other sites around paris. ...

We checked in August 20th, didnt have any problems, our room was on the 1st floor. Not the best view in the world, but it faced a quiet little street and was immaculately clean. Went to Paris to propose to my girlfriend, now fiancee, so it was an important trip for me. The hotel was the perfect base for our trip, centrally located, metro station right outside the door, friendly and helpful English peaking staff, a room that felt like it cost more than it did. Listen to the other travelers helpful reviews and you can't go wrong, the breakfast is the only bad thing about the hotel-so don't eat it-just go to the Shell next door or anyplace else for that matter (you are in Paris afterall). Our first night we didn't feel up to hunting down a restaraunt out of our guidebook, so we asked for a recommendation at the front desk, he directed us to a great spot down the street, le petite chaise I think. This hotel combined with Rick Steve's Paris guidebook ensured that the only bad part of my vacation was having to leave. Would definitely stay here again!
