“Very small hotel but great!”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

Other reviews that describe this hotel as small are no exaggeration. There were 4 of us staying in 2 double rooms. We all slept wonderfully as the hotel was quiet and the rooms faced an internal courtyard (small) so did not get the light too early in the morning. The rooms were cool and comfortable (though small) and the beds were really comfortable. The breakfast was basic but everything was there - ham, cheese, croissants, pain au chocolate, coffee tea juices cereals etc. We found the location excellent with a walk through the gardens to the last stop of the Batobus which we use to get up and down the Seine. We visited a fab italian style restaurant twice which was about 200 yards down Rue de Linne, very reasonable and great food excellent waiting staff.
Plenty of shops nearby and a metro. I would not hesitate to come here again though the pictures do not give a realistic impression of the place - I think fancy lenses and lighting must have been employed! Even so, would recommend without hesitation.
The botanic gardens are truly wonderful even if you are not into plants you couldn't help but love these gardens.

Room Tip: 012 and 014 face inwards to the courtyard so they don't get too light in the morning

We have stayed there twice, 8 years apart. Both times it has been ideal. Last week it was a haven away from the tourism of central Paris and yet only a 20 minutes walk from Notre Dame. It has Metro stations nearby, plus good bus routes. The place is in the most lovely local community with cafes and restaurants all around. Plus of course the wonderful Jardin Des Plantes park and museums just opposite. It is simple, clean and the staff are very polite. The area is part of an inner city village with others close by, a lovely market just over the hill. A real lived in and lovely neighbourhood. I would recommend it as a great place to have as a base for a nice few days in Paris.

Room Tip: We were in a back room first time, 8 years ago and a front room last week. They suggested that the f...

Stayed here at very short notice for one night on business, this was the only hotel within my budget for miles around. The rooms were quite small and a bit dated but it was clean and in a very good location. The area behind the hotel is quite lively with a lot of bars and quite a few restaurants to choose from.

Overall, the hotel was ok but if you book further in advance you can get a lot better value for money in Paris.

We were all very happy with our stay - both adults and children. Good location, 3 minutes to the Metro station - 2 lines No. 7 and 10. Walking distance to Notre Dame. The hotel is situated right across the botanical gardens of Paris - Jardin des Plantes - a haven. Interesting museums and a zoo.

Upon arrival, we asked to change rooms to have a street view. It wasn't a problem. This hotel is surrounded by local bakeries, restaurants and markets. Its located down the street from the metro station and directly across the street from the bus stop. The breakfast was fresh and the staff was great. We would stay here again.

We stayed for 4 nights in May and this hotel was just perfect for us. (My husband stayed here last year as well.) The rooms are small (as are most in this price range in Paris) but they are clean and quiet. The staff are friendly and keen to help with anything and the breakfast was better than expected. For us, the location is excellent (away from the heavily touristed areas) and there are many restaurants within a few minutes walk. Access to the Metro and RER is near by.

Stayed here in March 2014 for 4 nights with a friend in a twin room. The room was small but clean, beds comfy and room was decorated fairly modern.

When we arrived the receptionist was extremely friendly and greeting us with a big smile. She checked us in straight away and explained to us the hotels policy that you are not allowed to take your room card out of the hotel and must hand this in at reception each time you leave. We were fine with this and then went to our room. One thing I will say is that the elevator is VERY small and can only fit 2 people max inside.

The water in the bathroom sometimes went slightly cold but that is expected in a budget hotel with so many rooms. We found the rooms to get too hot sometimes so we had to keep the window open at night.

When we started off our first day the receptionist gave us plenty of information and told us routes to get to Versailles, Notre Dame etc.

The notre dame is only a 15 minute walk away and we found that the best area to be in was St. Michel in the evening. We found a beautiful little bistro on the corner past the st. michel fountain called St Andre's which we then followed the road round to Corcorrans Irish Pub which was fantastic and CHEAP!!

The metro Jussieu which is 500m from the hotel is excellent for getting to the Louvre as it goes along M line 10 which stops at Palais du Louvre, directly outside it!

All in all we had a fanstastic stay and found this hotel a great base for exploring Paris.

Would HIGHLY recommend for a cheap, clean and friendly stay.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the street have more light.
