“Lovely hotel in great location”
Reviewed 23 August 2014

An ideal hotel if you want a typical Parisian stay in a quiet street close to the bustle of St Michel and within walking distance of many attractions. The room we had was compact but clean and the beds were very comfortable. The free wifi made my daughter very happy! There was a good selection at breakfast which was excellent value for money considering Paris prices. I would recommend this hotel and would happily stay there again.

This hotel is in a great location for easy walking distance to most of the sites I wanted to visit. The room I had was clean, had everything I needed. The lift is small but does the job of getting the bags up to the room. The staff were friendly and answered all questions I had. Huge windows open to cool the room off at night. It was an easy walk to the RER station to return to the airport. I liked my room very much and I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Paris to visit all the most famous sites.

This hotel offers everything I look for when booking a Paris hotel room. Prime location, reasonably priced, & friendly staff always willing to help. It also featured a lovely balcony, and the entire establishment was obviously well cared for. The umbrellas available to guests in the lobby are a nice touch, as are the lollipops at the front desk. The rooms are a bit dated, but they are very clean and ours was ready when we arrived at 10:00 AM (loved that!). I can't say enough good things about their friendly staff, each one we encountered provided outstanding customer service. Best hotel I've stayed at out of 3 trips to Paris.

This hotel is in a great location, close to RER/metro station, St Germain and St Michel. Room was clean and bed was comfy. No AC (I was not expecting) so it got a little stuffy at night even with windows open. Nice bathroom and shower. There is a lift (elevator) for luggage. Also had a really nice breakfast for about 12 euros. Overall a really good deal for the money.

this hotel is located perfectly in St Germain and is close to a lot of the sights. Breakfast, while slightly pricey, is very good. the receptionists are very helpful and all in all it is a great hotel and I'll definitely will be back the next time i'm in Paris.

Very competent, though not a warm, reception - but you're in Paris of course! Clean; small really tiny twin bedroom. Good value. Our room above the street was surprisingly quiet until 9 a.m - oh joy! I'd not take the €12 breakfast - better to walk up to the cafe overlooking the Luxembourg garden where there's a very fine display of excellent photographs, with captions, commemorating WW1 on the railings right now.
