“Great Location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 November 2009

I stayed there twice, 1st time in May08, 2nd in Oct08
In May08, I was traveling alone for first time visiting Paris, the hotel is in a very great location, near Saint-Michel subway station in which you can go everywhere (with express train to direct to CDG airport), Hotel area is awake all day and night, you can stay out around the area till 3am.
Both times I took rooms on the last floor which was little away from street noise.
The single rooms is very small compared to any B&B, they clean it every day, bathroom inside the rooms needs renovation, shared bathrooms are ok.
2nd time was with family, we took double room which was smaller than the single room that took before.
Overall, it is a good budget hotel for teen age, don’t book if you expect to stay in the room too much or have many luggages
By the way they have a lift.

Of the 3 hotels I stayed in in Paris, this one gets my worst review. The bed was lumpy and uncomfortable, tho clean. Some of the trim along the floor was missing exposing holes in the wall. It was really cold that night, but there was no heat in my room. There was a heater, but not functioning. My room faced the side alley, so the street noise was reduced, but still a bit loud. It did quiet down by around midnight tho, I think the cold forced people indoors. You must carry your bag up the initial 25 or so stairs, then there's a lift. It is in a good location, if you like being right in the middle of a touristy zone with lots of bars and souvenir shops, and central to most of Paris. The staff was nice.

This hotel is right in the center of everything. I could hear the bells of Notre Dame from my room...and it was not a disturbance, rather a beautiful reminder of where you were ;)

I was able to walk to a lot of places from here and if it was too far to walk, the metro/tour bus stop/ or taxi stand was close by.

The bed (the pillows were surprisingly very confortable) and shower and room was small, but it did the trick and they give you soap and douche gel. It was nice having a shower in the room. There was also a window looking out to the atrium...not a very pretty site, but it was quiter than one looking out to the street and the alley cats will keep you entertained in the dark. La Huchette is a loud street at night so if you're a light sleeper like me then ask for a quiet room.

If you get the breakfast ($5/day) they will bring it up to your room in the morning when you call down. Nothing fancy...croissant, baguette, butter, jam, and choice of milk, coffee or tea. The milk was good and cold!

There are plenty of bars, clubs, and cafes around so you definitely won't get bored. And the reception is open 24 hours.

There is info on tours in the lobby and you can store your bags there after check out.

Small hotel in the Quartier Latin near Notre Dame, the rooms were very cute in a parisian way. If someone wants to stay in Paris without spending a fortune it's the place to go!!!

This hotel is in a great location and everything is within walking distance (approx 50mins to e.tower) Hotel is nothing special and is a bit outdated but for the price it's ok. The hotel is very loud, we were put facing the street for the first two nights and didn't get much sleep until 2am but we were moved for the remainder 2 nights and it was fine. Hotel staff not very helpful and can only speak limited English, didn't eat breakfast here but try the cafe down the road for coffee and bakery delights.

The hotel wasn't too bad, I guess we were lucky to get the room with the windows facing the wall, therefore we didn't really hear the sound of dishes breaking in the Greek restaurant downstairs :)) The location is great - you have to cross just one street and you are right in front of the Notre Dame. The hotel itself was ok, toilet was outside of the room, but there was a shower inside. Wi-Fi availiable in some corners of hotel:) Oh and there is a GREAT place for croissants down the street to the right:)

The hotel is in the heart of the latin quarter, right by the Left Bank. Fantastic night life, dining, you are in walking distance of Notre Dame, Conciergerie, Sainte-Chapelle, and Jardin du Luxembourg. Room was small but very nice, the hotel staff was friendly and helpful. I loved the place, the price was excellent. The Metro station was at the end of the block and the neighborhood very safe.

Negatives -- shower in the room but labatory was shared, no elevator so you have to walk up stairs, and there is a disco on the 1st floor which is open to 3:30 am. My room was above the dance floor but I didn't come to Paris to not be part of the night so it was not a problem. I wouldn't recommend the hotel to families with small children but anyone else -- yes.

The location was simply fantastic.

  • Liked — the location was perfect for sightseeing and access to Metro
  • Disliked — Camode was in the hall shared with other guests
