Nice little hotel quiet and well located. Plenty of cafes nearby and also a couple of small supermarkets. Reasonable size room and bathroom. Comfortable bed, spotlessly clean and an air conditioner that works! Nothing over the top but pleasant and reasonable value for money. I would stay here again.

Nice little hotel in the Latin Quarter situated in a relatively quiet neighbourhood, and with a convenience store nearby as well. We got here from CDG via the metro which stopped at the Saint Michel de Notre Dame station, and it was a 5-10 minute walk from there to the hotel.

The Seine and Notre Dame Cathedral is about a 10-15 minute walk from here. There a myriad dining options nearby and for souvenirs, all you need to do is explore the surrounding area near Notre Dame. The Eric Kayser Boulangerie is just around the corner (which was a God-send!).

Staff were very accommodating, especially the ladies at the front desk in the daytime. They gave us a map upon check-in listing and encircling the major tourist attractions in the area for our reference. For anything else, they were always approachable and willing to answer any queries.

The rooms are a bit on the small side, but everything you need is found in the room (toiletries, electric kettle, instant coffee sachets and tea). The elevator though is barely enough to fit 3 people so if you are lugging a huge piece of luggage, best to take turns using the lift. We stayed on the 3rd floor though, so it was really easier to just walk up and down the stairs. Their corridors have motion-activated lights, so each step is illuminated as you push forward.

The wi-fi is free throughout the hotel for guests, and never really had any problems connecting, and the speed was pretty good as well.

The breakfast spread served in the basement was good enough for the price they were asking for, with good brewed coffee and pastries, butter, jams and eggs.

Room Tip: Choose a room with a view of the Church in front.

A three night stay in this excellent hotel lived up to recent reviews. I would recommend this location. Close to Notre Dame and many good restaurants, the hotel is quiet, clean and well appointed. The rooms are on the small side but have queen size beds which are very comfortable. Breakfasts are good value. Taxis, buses, metro and the river are all close. I must especially commend the young lady on reception during our stay. She was extremely helpful and efficient with a permanent smile but all staff were pleasant. I would recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: We were on the fifth floor with a balcony. There is a small lift. The room despite being on the fr...

nice little hotel. great location, 5 minutes walk to the notre dame.

we took the superior room that was very cleen but a bit small... thats how paris hotel rooms are.

the breakfast is very good - boilled eggs, cheese (few kinds), ceereals, baguette, croissant, orange juice, coffee and more. not tipical to paris at all.

the staff were very helpfull and kind, with very good english.

the hotel was a very good decision we took - we will definitely come back in the future.

I chose the hotel based on Trip Advisor reviews which were certainly accurate.
The beds - very comfortable. The bath - renovated and smart. In room coffee maker worked for early morning meeting starts. Small rooms - as often found in Europe. Staff - helpful and professional, with taxis never more than 7 mins away. Location - cannot be beat as near to Notre Dame, the Louvre, Paris town hall, bridge of the locks, Musee D'Orsay and not too far from the Eiffel Tower. Bank and ATM on the corner and Metro Maubert Mutualitee 2 mins away. Would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: Book early as rooms go quickly and late checkout generally unavailable. Not many views (except of n...

I just spent 5 nights here and will choose The Agora St. Germain again and again. This was my fourth trip to Paris and my best hotel experience ever. First of all, I booked directly through the hotel, getting a better rate than expedia or any other service. Actually the rate was quite unbelievable for the hotel and location. I indeed had a change of schedule, contacted the hotel and got an immediate, affirmative response. This is one reason it's better to book through the hotel rather than some service. This hotel is in a great location if you want to stay in the Latin Quarter...Notre Dame 5-7 min. walk; metro station 5 min. walk; Luxembourg Gardens 7-10 min. walk; heart of the Latin quarter 5 min. walk; restaurants everywhere. Yes, the rooms are small, but that's what I expect in Paris. Admittedly I am a low-maintenance, far from wealthy traveler and I don't expect 5 star service at 2-3 star prices but I was completely won over by the Agora St. Germain and will make this my preferred hotel on my future Paris travels.

Room Tip: Be sure to check with the hotel directly before booking with a travel service.

This hotel is located in a great spot in the Latin Quarter. It is a great area with all of the amenities you need a short walk away. The rooms were very small but well maintained with modern bathrooms. A great home base for a trip to Paris! This hotel seemed to be quite reasonably priced relative to other Paris hotels, I would not hesitate to stay here again.
