My wife and I left this morning from a four night stay at Hotel de l'Universite. The location is perfect for a trip to Paris. You can easily walk to the Louvre and the Musee d'Orsay. The metro is also a close walk if you wish to travel to Versailles. There are several excellent restaurants within a five minute walk including Le Bonne Excuse, Il Como, 35, and Le Fregate. The hotel itself was clean, comfortable and well appointed. The staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfast was excellent. The coffee was hot, the croissants were perfect, and I could get my ham and eggs. Unfortunately there was no fresh fruit in their offering. Now for the negative! Although our room was large (room 22), it fronted the street (Universite). The ancient single pane windows were no match for the morning monster garbage truck rallies and motorcycle races that sounded like they were staged each morning starting around 6:30 a.m. I can't say that we had one really good night's sleep. If going back to this hotel I would make sure I had a room away from the street and if I ever meet the hotel owner I would strongly suggest that he look into window replacement.
- 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
