My husband took a cab back to the Moderne St. Germain from the Gare du nord, after a day in London. The cabbie said that the Moderne is in the best part of Paris. We sure agree. We have stayed at the Moderne three times now. It is conveniently located to almost everything you would want to see in Paris. It is a short walk up the hill to the historic and lively Rue Mouffetard with its many cafes (you can drink where Hemingway did). You have the Pantheon, St. Germain, Notre Dam, the Cluny, and metro lines to get you every where. We always walk to the Musee D'orsay, winding our way down through the narrow ancient streets leading from St. Germain de Pres.
The rooms are small, as you would expect, for a reasonably priced hotel. This time our room over looked Rue des Ecoles, it had a large closet and was clean, with good bed. It was cold and damp, but the room was warm and had a welcome bath tub/shower. The toiletries from Yves Rocher were an unexpected elegant touch.
Breakfast is a very good selection of pastries and cheeses and more. This is one of the better breakfasts that we have had in Paris, if not all of France.
We have stayed in other parts of Paris, but have found that even in more expensive hotels our vacation was not as enjoyable as staying in the Vieme. Before staying at the Moderne we stayed at another hotel on Rue Des Ecoles, the Moderne is a much better choice over all.
Over look the small rooms, just go and enjoy everything that the area and Paris has to offer.
