Just back from Paris and our three night stay at the Hotel Belloy Saint-Germain. Firstly the location is superb. A short walk from the #4 Metro - Odeon Station. This is ideal for us Eurostar travellers. The actual area is full of shops, restaurants and easy access to all of the Saint Germain/Left Bank attractions. My husband and I love the neighborhood. Now our big problem was the "standard" room we booked. Cosy, yes - Dated, yes - Funny/odd smell (cleaning products?) - Toilet/Bathroom - modern yet too small to actually sit straight on the toilet. Sorry (too much information). I'm 5'3, my husband 6'4 but both of us could not sit facing forward on this toilet. Someone with a bit of heft would be in trouble. On the first night, we realised that both bedside lamps were missing their bulbs. The previous occupants stole the bulbs? We tried to call reception but the room phone was not working. I went downstairs and asked for a bulb or two. We were visited by two hotel employees before one bulb was found. A second bulb never materialised so we stopped asking. Any sounds or voices in the hall can be clearly heard. If you are looking for a great location and not too bothered about space or cookie cutter Premier Inn style, this is the hotel for you.
