“Quaint and clean”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2014

I appreciate the Hotel Danube. It offers a clean, simple, quaint, moderately priced respite for visitors in a convenient location. I've stayed twice with several rooms, and have always had a wonderful stay. I hope to return soon.

Room Tip: I think the garden facing rooms are quietest. I love being on the high floors with small balcony.

We originally chose Hotel du Danube because of its location, but have returned many times because of the comfort of the accommodations and the welcoming, helpful staff. Steps from the Louvre, the Musee d'Orsay, Notre Dame - and Ile St. Louis - what better spot to unpack your bags.
All the staff speak English and oblige your every request and inquiry. Cabs to the airport and train station, dinner reservations, and helpful advice, everything you would expect from a five-star hotel at three-star prices. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Courtyard rooms are best.

I have been going to this hotel since 2001. At least once a year and sometimes more. The staff is very efficient and so friendly. the rooms are clean and the location is a dream come true. St Germain des pres is my favourite district and this hotel is right in the middle of it. Everything you need is at a few steps, shops, cafes, buses, metro restaurants etc..etc.. Love this hotel!

Room Tip: This hotel has 2 computer stations at the reception. To check emails or an address it is ideal.

After many trips to Paris, I still haven't found the perfect hotel. Hotel Danube has a fabulous location, walkable to many area of Paris including Right Bank very well priced, had helpful reception, and nice rooms. Nice to have small fridge for those pastries I bought and nice big sink.

Two problems. Need a bigger wastebasket for the room. A tiny basket in bathroom that didn't lift with foot pedal is not sufficient to throw things out. Would leave trash next to it that wasn't always picked up.
The other bigger issue that facing the interior courtyard leaves one listening to constant doors slamming shut especially in morning. Asked to fix and it was better but still had to listen 50 times each morning especially door at bottom of stairs right below room- maybe proximity made it louder? Also on Monday morning trash day doors shutting 10 times at 5:30 am. Maybe should prop open for awhile? Not a picky traveler but it drove me a little nuts. If this could change, the hotel would be perfect.

Room Tip: No to room 34 due to door directly below slamming

Our room was very spacious, especially by Paris standards, with a sizable bathroom and shower. (No face cloths so if you need one, bring your own). Room was clean, with large windows, a small fridge and a nice sized closet. And, there is an elevator in the hotel.
The front desk staff were extremely helpful and knowledgable about the area.
The hotel is within walking distance of many great restaurants and the Metro.
No doubt about it, we will return to Hotel du Danube without hesitation.

Room Tip: Room 10 is beautiful.

Excellent value.

The room price is "fair market value" and not a "discount deal" but the hotel delivers a very high level of service for a *** hotel.

I stayed here twice in July 2014 after a long term apartment rental fell through, and both stays were excellent. I looked at about 8 hotels in person in this price range in July 2014 between the Musee d'Orsay and St Michel before staying here.

Very professional staff, bi-lingual French/English, clean and attractive lobby, clean and attractive rooms and linens, wifi & cable TV worked consistently. I stayed in the smallest room in the hotel and it was indeed small - the bathroom door opened about 45% before hitting the bed. However, the price was fair for this size room and the bathroom was a reasonable size and had been recently updated.

The hotel has been owned by one family for 25 years and some of the staff have been at the hotel this long. The family and staff seem to take a high level of pride in maintaining the hotel. I can confirm comments in other reviews that the staff went out of its way to be helpful to me.

Great neighborhood on the corner of two streets with luxury window shopping. Reasonably priced cafe immediately next door does a great job of being kind to tourists without pandering to them. There is a newspaper store within 100 feet, as well as a gourmet take-out deli and wine shop (not cheap but really excellent carry out food) within 300 feet.
