We had a great time at this hotel. It is a quaint little hotel located near the center of Paris, a 10 minute walk to the Louver and about 15 minutes from Notre Dame. The room was clean and comfortable and the staff was very polite and extremely helpful.

Of course Paris is always expensive. But once you get over the sticker shock, you will see this hotel is reasonably priced for the area. In fact, it is very close to some expensive hotels. Nice big updated room and very helpful and friendly front desk people. Would go back there again on our next visit.

Just after staying at the Hotel de Seine a couple blocks away I finished my biz trip with a couple of nights at this charming little hotel.

Both hotels have similar sized rooms and are very nice and clean with Universite's decor more moderne. However bathroom is really small here too and I couldn't figure out the shower here with no place to put the soap or shampoo it was hard to pick it up from the floor!!

However it's really close to everything especially the Musee d'Orsay and some nice shops and restaurants.

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.

Room Tip: Aw mentioned above, ask for a room not fronting Universite.

The Hotel de l'Université, located in the St. Germain area, is lovely, well located and a good value. Our room, a superior double, was a nice size for a Paris hotel room, bright, comfortable, quiet and lovely. We overlooked a courtyard in the back of the building and the only noise we heard in the morning were the birds (we slept with the windows open). The staff was helpful and courteous. We love this location and have stayed in the St. Germain area before, although we didn't like our previous hotel nearly as much. The L'Université is in a great location and is an easy walk to the Louvre, Musée D'Orsay and other Paris sights. I would highly recommend the Hotel de l'Université and we will definitely stay there next time we are in Paris.

Room Tip: Our room was overlooking a courtyard in the back of the building and was very quiet.

I have just spent 4 days in the Hotel de l'Universite in St. Germain, during a family visit to Paris. I can highly recommend this hotel. I visit Paris regularly and find this hotel comfortable, friendly and relaxed.
They have updated in the last couple of years and although it manages to retain its traditional, historic ambience the rooms are modern, quietly elegant and most have chic and practical ensuite bathrooms.
The Hotel is only a moments walk from the Boulevard St. Germain, with its cafes and fashionable shops but is located quietly on rue de l'Universite - an extension of Rue Jacob.
The staff are friendly & helpful, the breakfasts delicious and their rates are very reasonable for an hotel in this location.
I highly recommend it and will be returning soon.

Room Tip: I would recommend for utter quiet the rooms facing the courtyard.

The hotel is fine and also the location. The accomodations are ok and the staff too but bathroom need more space for toileries and the hair dryer is not so good . The shower is the worst think in the room. The hotel need to improve those itens!

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
