Lovely small Hotel with character, very comfortable. In the heart of Paris, easy to walk everywhere, great location...very clean and quite with extremely friendly accommodating staff. It is a real gem and I will be back ASAP!

A very nice hotel. Although the room wasn't very big, it was clean and functional. The employees were very kind and friendly, and that's something that doesn't seem usual in Paris. The hotel is located nearby Boulevard Saint Germain des Pres, so you can walk to visit a lot of things.
We'll sure choose this hotel next time.

Fabulous hotel where we had a lovely spacious room on the second floor. Nice traditional French decor in what was obviously an historic building but beautifully modernised. Perfect location for the Louvre and Musee d'Orsay, both within walking distance. Helpful, friendly staff. It's a quiet area full of antique shops and of course the university, so dont expect the night life of the Left Bank to be around you.

Room Tip: We stayed in January on the second floor at the front and it was not noisy at all.

We stayed at this hotel for four nights in early November. What a find !! The hotel has obviously been completely renovated recently, with plenty of old French character and charm. Our room #22 on the second floor had plenty of space, soft beds and a good size bathroom WITH A SEPARATE TOILET !! We couldn't ask for more. We were beside the lift well and had a street view. There was no noise from either the street or the lift. 5 stars for the staff. Reception staff could speak a multitude of languages, and Olivier, who seemed to be on duty 24 hours a day was always welcoming and so helpful with any information we needed. We had intended to have breakfast in one of the nearby cafes, but the little dining area was so inviting we chose it every morning. The continental buffet consisted of fruit juices, cereals, assorted freshly baked French breads, and piping hot coffee. We couldn't eat it all - real value. Lepa, who served our breakfast each morning, was a delight, and she was able to cheerfully sort out what we need despite the language barrier. No other meals are provided, but there are dozens of cafes, restaurants and creperies within five minutes of the hotel
The hotel's location is ideal for walking. So close to the River Seine, Musee d'Orsay, Notre Dame, The Louvre, and the wonderful shopping on the Left Bank.

We wished we were staying longer, and would certainly return here on our next trip to Paris.

READERS: Do not be influenced by the Average, Poor and Terrible reviews. They were written up to eight years ago - well before the renovations took place, and possibly even changed management. We consider Tripadvisor should remove them - we think they are unfair as they in no way relate to the hotel in 2013.

I booked Hotel de l'Universite due to the great price. We were able to walk everywhere from the location of our hotel. The staff was friendly and helpful. But the first night we had a room street side and it was so noisy with scooter and cars and people laughing all night long we barely got an sleep. It was so awful! But I told the front desk that we would leave if we didn't get a more quite room and thankfully they moved us to the inside portion if rooms which are more expensive but did not charge us any extra. It is so important for the quality of your stay to choose a quite room. If not you will be up all night with road noise! But a good hotel everything considered.

Room Tip: Ask for a quite room and make sure it is not facing the street!

We booked our hotel off the internet - sight unseen - and were a little apprehensive about what we would find when we arrived. What a great choice! The room was comfy - with an in-room bath and very recently remodeled. The desk staff was incredible. They helped us almost every day with some reservation or recommendation. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Hotel de l’Université is a former Benedictine convent and has retained many period features while adapting to the needs of 21st century society. The reception area is vast and delightful with its ancient beams. It is an immediate illustration of the style and appeal of this quality establishment. The Hotel de l’Université only has 27 bedrooms, allowing the staff to focus on an individualized care. Each room has its own decor and character, many ornate with ageless beams, but all benefiting from tall traditional Parisian windows allowing daylight to flood in. All the rooms have been renovated in 2011 and include air-conditioning, mini-bar, safety deposit box and a free Wi-Fi connection. A laundry service is available upon request. The rooms on the top floor overlook the rooftops of Paris and some have the rare bonus of a private terrace. The Hotel de l’Université is not a place to stay for the night. It is a journey into the history and style of Parisian life, a chance to experience life as one of the locals and bring back unforgettable memories. ... more   less
