“Noise, Noise, Noise”
Reviewed 22 July 2011

There is no escaping the noise in this hotel. Only stay here if you are a night owl. Even back from the street the noise will come up the attrium/courtyard to your bedroom from guests talking at all hours. If you are a bar hopping nightcluber this could be for you. The rooms are very basic but clean.

So close to St-Michel station, located on a pedestrian street with a great little jazz club across the road. Also beside the jazz club there is a tiny bar called La Petite Taverne where you can get the best priced pint in Paris. St-Germain des pres is just a short walk and such a pretty area. I would avoid the breakfast here and go to the cafe at the end of the street instead much better value. If you are looking for luxury this is not ideal but I would stay here again for a fun weekend Paris.

Besides the party goers making noise all night this place was good for the price. The rooms are cramped but if u staying here then you r doing Paris on a budget. If you r in Paris to party this might be the place for u. I would stay here again if I was just passing though town for a night.

This hotel is located on a very busy pedestrian street that is jammed packed with tourists. Directly across the street are two Greek Restaurants whose employees stand outside
of the restaurants breaking plates to attract customers. Needless to say, this and the wall to wall foot traffic makes an incredible amount of noise. Only stay here if you are noise
tolerant!

Very charming hotel in great localization. Clean room, quite small, but that is normal in Paris. Hotel has an elevator. Kindly staff.The inconvenience - the hotel is situated in front of noisy bar, but for this price and localization you can survive it.

Les Argonautes is a nice hotel. It is very well situated, in the midst of the Quartier Latin, in the heart of Paris. Me and my fianceé stayed for 4 nights in february 2011, in a bedroom with en suite facilities.

The staff is helpful, although sometimes I got the impression that anyone could just walk in and act as a receptionist. The breakfast is good enough and the bed is ok. It has elevators, with is a huge thing in Paris. It also has free wi-fi, too bad it doesn't work on the bedrooms.

But there are some issues. The hotel is in a very, very, VERY noisy street. There are two greek restaurants in front of it, so it was common to hear people breaking plates up to 3 a.m. Not to mention the clubs and bars also next to it. Sometimes it was really hard to fall asleep because of all the noise. The notion of en suite facilities is not quite the same as I have. Ok, it has a toilet and a sink, but it doesn't have a proper shower. It has a bath thub, so it means you have to hold up the hose while washing yourself up.

In the end, it's not a bad place. It's not a good one, but definetly it's not a bad place.

Me and two friends stayed for 3 nights at this kooky little place smack bang on one of the touristiest bar streets in the Quartier Latin.

Choose this hotel if you want a cheap, clean place to sleep, in a convenient location by the foot of the Notre Dame. Expect no luxurious Parisian romance or frills.

The hotel is quite run down, but very clean. The décor in the reception/breakfast room is a full-on jungle theme. Don't miss the minuscule "roof garden" by the reception.

The staff is friendly, if a little quirky. We shared a double room with an extra bed, which was a foldable, moderately comfortable IKEA-style cot. The double bed was 140 cm wide, and to normal French comfort standards. Again, no frills, but perfectly adequate.

Our room had a shower in a makeshift bathroom corner, but no toilet. The shared toilets are tiny, and a bit outdated, but spotlessly clean.

The location of the hotel is very convenient, if you can stand the hubub of the street below. Note that the bars and clubs in the neighbourhood are very noisy during the night on weekends, bring earplugs if you're sensitive.
