“Great Experience”
Reviewed 31 July 2014

My wife and I just stayed there in the last month for our 25th Anniversary. The rates are very reasonable, includes breakfast and air conditioning. It is right off Montparnasse Ave in the heart of the Left Bank's best cafes and bistros. But the best thing about this hotel is the people who run it. The staff is very friendly. We had a small emergency with a fraud alert on a credit card, and they allowed us to make an international call and to get a 24 hour packet with our new cards (even though I had already pre-paid for the hotel). The manager, the entire staff -- including Ester -- were just simply wonderful. Even if you find a few things beyond their control like road construction or late night revelers walking by outside, the friendly staff here makes this great place a very special place. When we return, we plan on staying there again.

Room Tip: It has a small elevator. If that is a problem for you, stay on the first floor. If not, stay on the...

Atelier Saint-Germain:
Don't be fooled...no 3.5 star here
The overall 3.5 star rating of this hotel is definitely exaggerated. We stayed here for 5 nights and can honestly say that a 2 star rating is more appropriate. First of all, room 21 was very small even by European standards. The condition of the room requires painting and overall cleaning. The sink is comparable to a small birdbath and you cannot help but bang your head against the wall when brushing your teeth. The elevator measures 100 x 45 cm.( 36 x 18 inches) so beware if you are slightly overweight trying to haul along your luggage. Each floor has 3 rooms and the hallway dimensions are what the elevator should have been. Inside our room, we could hear a constant rumbling. The best features were the shower because of its good water pressure and a comfortable bed.
We had read on Trip Advisor that breakfast was free if your stay was for 3 days or longer. Although we were booked for 5 nights, the lady at the front desk denied us since our room was not one of the higher end ones. We had booked through Hotwire and we can't understand why our room was substandard accommodation. We plan to inform Hotwire on this matter. We did however have a look at the breakfast and realized that for 11 Euros, we weren't missing much. The fruit cocktail was from a can and the variety of food offered was quite limited at best.
We have traveled for years and have a lot of experience with hotels. L'atelier Saint Germain is grossly overrated in our opinion. So far, we have been using hotels for the past 3 weeks in Italy, Czech Republic and Ireland. This hotel has been our greatest disappointment and we cannot recommend it to anyone.
I want to commend Valentin and Anes, two front desk clerks who were very friendly and helpful.

Dear Gilbert,

Thanks for your time to write a review about your stay. We’re sorry that it didn’t meet your expectations.

We appreciate that you recognize that bed was comfortable and shower has a good pressure. We’re happy you recommend 2 helpful & friendly persons at the front desk. These good points are very important for us.

Regarding the size of the rooms, we’re very clear on our official website and previous guests before you mentioned it on their comments. We do agree with you. Nevertheless, we would like to inform that the 3 stars rating is appropriate in accordance with the official rules and corresponding with Parisian standards if not with European ones.

Finally, we would like to precise that the special offer on Tripadvisor was exclusive to guests who booked on our official website. No other reason is the right one.

We hope your trip back to home was fine.

Best regards
Sabrina Hervy

My boyfriend and I stayed in this hotel for four nights and couldn't be happier. We booked the cheapest option and the room wasn't big but still fine for two people. More importantly it was clean, the bed was very comfortable, and the rain shower was fabulous. Everyone at the hotel was friendly and helpful. They had a special deal where if you stay for three or more nights breakfast was free and consisted of pastries, meat, cheese, yogurt, coffee, etc. the location is great, around the corner from the subway but in a neighborhood where you could avoid the summer tourist insanity. We would definitely stay at this hotel again.

Room Tip: The standard rooms are small but fine for a few nights. If you have a longer stay maybe go for a lar...

Just got back from a week long trip to Paris with my best friend celebrating our 45th birthdays. We stayed here and just loved every minute of it. It's a tiny hotel with a big heart! Yes the room was small (Arabesque) but that is common in Paris. It was spotless with a beautiful bathroom and excellent shower. The room was cleaned every day. The beds were super comfortable. Breakfast (included with our room) was excellent- great coffee! Plenty to get us started. The staff could not have been more helpful with everything from airport transfers to getting around the city. The metro is around the corner and got us everywhere we wanted to go. The hotel is off Boulevard Montparnasse which had tons of great places to eat, cafes, stores- everything you would want. Excellent wifi! I would stay here again in a second!

This was my first trip to Paris and Atelier Saint-Germain was recommended to me by a colleague who had lived in Paris. The location is ideal. It is walking distance to everything including cafes, a market and Metro nearby. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was clean, linens changed daily and the rain shower head provided a wonderful hot shower. As a single female I felt safe in the hotel and in the neighbourhood. I began and ended each day with a walk through the beautiful Jardin du Luxembourg which is a short walk from the hotel. Perfection!

Dear Patricia,

We’re very grateful for your so nice review regarding your stay at Atelier Saint Germain Hotel.

It’s true that the area is a very safe one and very comfortable if you enjoy walking. Jardin du Luxembourg is a great place in this purpose and a peaceful garden where you can rest, read or just dream and so close to the hotel (10mn walking)

We hope to see you again soon.

I stayed a few nights after a business seminar with a friend from work. The rooms were very small (as expected for the center of Paris on a budget) with teeny tiny TVs. We reserved the two twin beds in a double arabesque room, but were practically laying in the same bed and didn't have much room for our over-sized luggage. But we made it work since most the time we were sightseeing and not in our room. Its definitely a no-frills accommodation but clean and did have AC. The hotel was located perfectly for travelling around the city and close to the metro for getting around in minutes! For evenings out dining and for drinks, its very close to a lot of cute restaurants and nightlife. The staff was very helpful and courteous at all times, especially Ester! Her English was perfect and was a great help for my friend and I!

Small place, very few rooms. Ideal location for doing Paris. Lots of good restaurants in it´s close vicinity. I would definitely recommend this area. Very good dinner options on every corner. Clean and free Wifi is a plus. Value for money.
