The hotel Des Arenes is situated in the Latin Quarter and is only 100 yards or so from the Place Monge Metro station which gives you easy access to Central Paris and all the main places of interest, so is ideally suited to a stay in the Capital.
The hotel itself is clean and tidy. Is on six floors with the top floors having a nice little balcony. It is surprisingly quiet at night despite its location and you will get a good nights sleep here too. The breakfast room, which is basically what it is, is in the basement and looks a bit like a cafe. The breakfast is typically 'continental' and consists of a bread basket containing a bread roll, a croissant, a pain au chocolat and some Melba toast. You also get a variety of cheeses and preserves and either tea, chocolate or coffee. Cereals, yoghurts and fruit juice is also available. Not an amazing choice but fresh and on a par with most other French hotels. The rooms are cleaned daily and to a good standard. The one gripe however is that the toilet is on one side of the room and the bathroom on the other. Both the toilet and the shower are so small it was slightly awkward to move about about. I am not aware how many rooms are in this setup thought, it may just be room 63.
The reception is open 24hrs and the staff are friendly and helpful. They do however do their best to try and sell you transfers to the Airport for €32. Not worth it as you are so close to the Metro with easy access to the railway to CDG . (Take the RER-B, from Chatelet station)
The hotel is in the heart of the Latin Quarter and numerous bars and restaurants are only a a short walk away.
All in all, we had a pleasant stay at the Des Arenes. Having read some of the reviews I did have my reservations about staying here, these were immediately dismissed on seeing the hotel for myself. I would have no hesitation in staying here again.
