“Small rooms with small prices in a great neighborhood”
Reviewed 10 February 2014

I know the 6th well and have stayed in several similar hotels over many years. It's a charming area of Paris, full of vivacity and people walking around since many of the streets are closed to cars some of the day.
European friends recommended this hotel, where I have often had breakfast or coffee, so when my girlfriend and I went there over New Year's we researched it well. The price was easily €100 lower than the competition, and now I understand why. The rooms are indeed small. I was not as lucky as a previous commentator in that room 62 is obviously not room 61. We had about 18 inches on 2 sides of the comfortable bed and a generally slow ride up the elevator to the 6th floor. Nice view over Paris roofs.
However, this room and possibly others in the hotel suffers from a singular design flaw in that the bathroom is simply too small. The shower has no curtain or door, and water easily sprays out of the bathroom onto the bedroom floor. Quite unacceptable in my view, but then at €185 how much time do you spend in the bathroom or walking around the bedroom anyway?
Very courteous and helpful front desk in the morning or late evenings, bar available when returning from a night on the town, super good location in its neighborhood.
Might do it again but would insist on a full bathroom.

Room Tip: Be alert to my warning and be sure you get a room with a full bathroom. It's not a noisy neighbo...

Dear KirkpatrickMacDonald,

We thank you very much for taking time to write a comment about Hotel Des Marronniers.

Saint-Germain des Près is a wonderful area, we understand why you like it so much, we do too!
Hotel Des Marronniers is a very old building with old "Parisian" size of rooms and bathrooms. For your next reservation, maybe a triple room would be fine because bathrooms are larger. Do not hesitate to call us, our staff will be pleased to talk about the rooms with you.

We do hope that we will see you again at Hotel Des Marronniers for another stay in Saint-Germain des Près.

Best Regards,

I booked this hotel for my and my family's first trip to Paris. I had read the Trip Advisor reviews and hoped that it would be a comfortable, well-situated hotel for us to meet Paris. My expectations were well exceeded.

The hotel delivers the following:

*very friendly and very helpful personnel;

*the most lovely breakfasts in a most lovely setting;

*rooms that you can sleep well in because of the comfort of the beds and the set-back of the hotel from rue Jacob; and

*great location in the heart of St Germain des Pres surrounded with the metro close by.

All in all excellent value and we would not hesitate in staying again.

Room Tip: It was our preference in staying with our 12 and 7 year old children to take a room with two bedroom...

I always want to stay here when I come to Paris. I love the friendly and helpful staff. Love the unique rooms, the small elevator and curving stairs, the warmth and serenity of the garden and courtyard, the great location in the heart of Saint-Germain-des-Pres, and the reasonable rates for the quiet and comfortable rooms. Also loved hearing the tolling of the bells from the "oldest church in Paris" around the corner. When I dream of Paris, I dream of the Hotel des Marronniers.

Room Tip: Every room is different and all are charming.

there are accomodations you come in and feel home immediately. Hotel des Marronieres is definitely one of them: very 'Parisienne', excellent located, heavently quite, cosy well furnitured rooms, a yummy breakfast, a beautiful garden and the most friendly staff makes it hard to departure at the end of your stay. I will be back again.

Room Tip: please choose a room with a bath tube

A great place to be in Paris. Convenient for the Metro. In a delightful street. A very traditional set back entrance. Friendly. Quiet. Comfortable bed. Neither room nor bathroom capacious but if you are out on the town who cares?

Room Tip: The rooms over the courtyard to the rear overlook the garden and then the church.

Thank you very much for writing a comment about Hotel Des Marronniers.

Saint-Germain Des Près is a very nice area, and in December, you could see the Christmas market in front of the Church.
It is a pleasure to read that you enjoyed your stay and we hope to welcome you back soon.

I always stay here when I go to Paris, and just got back (November 2013). It has all that I need: friendly, helpful staff; reasonable prices; clean, comfortable rooms; lovely breakfast room; and a great location near the Metro in a delightful, walkable neighborhood full of markets, bookstores, shops, historical spots, and great little restaurants. It's tucked off the street on a courtyard – a warm, unique little hotel not putting on airs.
