Hotel Vaneau Saint Germain

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 May 2013

I went here about a year ago and there were building works going on on the outside of the building so the hotel didn't look too appealing but the rooms were very nice. Also, the hotel is situated very close to the metro so that was handy.

However, the shower was SOOOOOOO small!!! i'm a size 8-10 so very petite but I found it a real struggle to have a shower comfortably. Also, after returning from a day out, our room was boiling even tho we turned the heating down before we left, so I called reception for help, and he came up promptly, but he said they have no air con so we just have to open windows! This wouldn't have been a problem but as i mentioned earlier, there were building works and so there was scaffolding up, I didn't really feel comfortable opening windows throughout the night with scaffolding just outside, incase someone climbed in (it was one of those massive windows that opened up completely)! So I had a very bad nights sleep because it was sooooooo hot!!!

The hotel had no A/C, so open windows cooled the room. However, lots!! of street noise, coupled with construction just a few yards away dropped the rating for this hotel. Nice Euro Breakfast available for 14 Euros. The Vaneau Metro station was very close (about 40 meters), which made seeing the sights very easy. Get a "Paris Metro" app for your smart phone. Wonderful hotel staff helped arrange trips for us and answer questions when the language-barrier allowed. A restaurant/bar directly adjacent to the hotel was nice with good food. Overall, a clean hotel with exceptional staff. But bring your earplugs.

Room Tip: The 5th floor (501) has a great balcony with a wonderful view, but loud. If I were to stay here aga...

This hotel is just ok. We arrived late one evening and yet our room wasn't ready. However the staff were really apologetic and rushes to fix the issue. Unfortunately the only room they had was a smoking room. The smell was too much for us and we had to change rooms the next day but again the staff rose to the occasion.
Basically the staff saved the hotel.

But the location was great. Lots of food around. Quite residential but I did really enjoy being away from the tourist centre of Paris.

room and bathroom were bigger than we expected and above the 3 star average in Paris. Staf is polite and helpfull, most of your questions will be answered and you problems will be solved. Quiet enveronment (considdering you are staying next to the Crossroads of a main street in a big European capital and not in the countryside). Less than 150 meters from the Metro station of Vaneau. 15 minutes with the metro or a nice walk of less than an hour and almost all of the things to be seen in the center of Paris are within reach. If you do not pay the full price of 220 Euro for a room but take advantage of special offers that take the price down below 150 Euro a night for a double it's more than a good price. This will probably not be the last time we check in in this hotel.

Room Tip: do not take the rooms close to the elevator (the ones ending in 04) as you hear every movement of it...

Last fall we had to find a hotel which could accommodate my 86 year old Dad. We were very pleased with the rooms and service provided by Hotel Vaneau! Location was fantastic and we were so pleased with the local environment - little grocery right across the street, restaurants within walking distance (one which had been reviewed by New York Times!) and a superb cheese store right around the block. Not to mention easy access to museums, bakeries, and chocolate shops!

After reading other reviews of this hotel was a bit concerned about checking in and having to wait for a room. I did have to wait but only five minutes and the person on the desk was very sweet and helpfull offered me coffee. The room was clean with a larger than average bathroom for Paris
The bed and Pillow were very comfortable and towels were changed every day. the room had character with old windows and a fireplace. Opening the windows let in the noise of the street but the room was hot . we eventually turned off the heating and it was just right even though it was January. Breakfast is extra but there isn't too much to choose from in the area and for 14 euros you get a good choice . Three stops on the metro and a short walk across the river and you are in the centre of everything. A cable internet connection in the room but wifi only in the foyer so it might not suit the smart phone enthusiast. Friendly staff.We will definitely book again.
