Stayed here for four nights and found the location to be simply perfect. Located on a very quiet side street it's shielded from the noise and the bustle, but yet literally a stone's throw is the bustle of Bd Saint-Germain, which is full of cafés, bars and restaurants - ideal for a short stroll back in the evening. Very near by are the major sights of Notre Dame and the Pantheon, the latter (if you're lucky enough to get one) can be seen from the upper floor rooms. Saint-Michele Notre Dame station is a 5 minute walk and has trains direct to Charles De Gaulle airport.
The hotel itself looks like it has been recently renovated, and the rooms are modern and clean, though admittedly small. The bathroom in particular was rather tiny and the smoked glass toilet wall/door and the gap between the bathroom door and glass wall means that those sharing with someone with whom they're not that intimate may feel slightly awkward. But hey, this is central Paris so I didn't expect a large room, and many continental European hotels are going that way with the loos.
I would advise against if travelling with children, it's just too small and prams/buggies in the lift would make it a very tight squeeze.
There's always someone on the desk, with whom you leave your key when you go out, and they're friendly and extremely helpful. Oh, and one last thing, personally I found it great value for money!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- In a quiet typical street of the Latin Quarter, overlooking the banks of the Seine. The hotel is located on the left bank, within walking distance of Notre Dame between the bank and the Boulevard Saint-Germain. Walking distance of the Museum of Natural History, the Institute du Monde Arabe, the Sorbonne and the Pantheon. A charming place to live at best your Parisian break. Its wide facade, which once must have been a shop-window, opens with a warm reception, decorated with beautiful antique furniture and a wonderful tapestry. ... more less
