Reviewed 17 July 2014

We stayed here in June for 2 nights. Hotel is small but lovely. Rooms were clean but our bathroom had a bath/shower without any shower curtain so the floor got soaked every time we showered. We had a safety deposit box in our room which was free but no tea/coffee making facilities in our room. Reception staff were brilliant with directions and advice and cleaning/breakfast staff were very pleasant.

Stayed here for a weekend getaway. Fair price, great location, nice cafes, bars and restaurants very close. Several Metro stations are walking distance away, the surrounding area is neighbourly and interesting. Rooms are small, but it's in Paris, so naturally. Staff helpful, breakfast is adequate (and it's free), would definitely return on next trip rather than shop around as it is worth a return visit.
Clean, tidy, and welcoming, what else do you need?

I found this hotel quite good. Below is a list of some of its positive and negative characteristics.
Pros
- free breakfast
- clean rooms
- staff gave excellent directions
- located close to an inexpensive but good market
- close proximity to different metro lines and restaurants
- fairly safe exterior

Cons
- the meat and cheese were reused three days in a row at the buffet and were out from 7-10:30, causing the cheese to have melted after the first morning
- small rooms
- can easily hear through the walls
- no air conditioning
- staff were occasionally rude

This hotel was perfect for our 4 days stay in Paris. It has a very handy central location, but in the same instance its far enough away from all the tourist crowds and felt more 'authentically' Paris. The hotel is located within walking distance to a central Metro Station and to other well known Paris landmarks. It was a great location for a picturesque morning run along the Seine.

We had a corner room, with a beautiful view over the tree lined boulevard below. The room was compact, but was very light and airy. Bathroom facilities were basic but more than adequate, and were clean. The staff were very pleasant and helpful, and spoke English very well. The room we booked also cam with breakfast, which was simple (croissants, cereal, yogurt and fruit), but was delicious - the perfect start for a day of exploring the city and shopping!

I would not hesitate to stay at this hotel, should I ever find myself back in Paris!

Room Tip: Rooms on the corner are nice and light and airy, although not the largest.

We stayed in Paris in 2011 for 102 Euros and this stay was 149 Euros a night. It seems that the French Open may have inflated prices in Paris?!? We enjoyed our stay. Jean Marc at reception is exceptional. We were also there during the thunderstorms and humid weather so the air conditioning was appreciated (we were on top floor). Thank goodness there was an elevator. The hotel is advertised as being in the Latin Quarter but it is just on the edge. That being said there is easy access to the Metro and Rue Moufftard is just a couple of blocks away for fabulous produce and boulangerie. This was the most expensive and the smallest room of our 2 month trip to Italy and France (lovely large bathroom though). Again...maybe because of the French Open the price was inflated. I would stay here again but at a reduced rate.

Room Tip: I think the rooms are all quite different based on other traveller's pictures and the fact that...

Stayed here for 3 nights - very clean hotel, the staff are really friendly and extremely helpful for queries about the area, transport etc. Room was good we had a corner one that was nice overlooking the Bvd St Marcel. Nice long walks out to Notre Dame from the hotel and reasonable eating places all around the hotel also. Plenty of transport links around can recommend using Port Royal station for direct link with CDG airport.

I am so glad I opted for a small hotel during my trip to Paris rather than a large fancy chain. This family run establishment isn't plush by any means, but it is very clean, picturesque, and quaint. It is an easy walk to public transportation. My husband and I could have spent days exploring this beautiful, historical area surrounding the hotel, and yet, this is one of the quieter areas of Paris. I will return to this hotel on my next trip.
