“A no frills experience but ok for a very short stay.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2012 via mobile

This hotel certainly was no frills. Easy to locate after getting off the metro at Saint Germaine des Pres, we had to drag our luggage up a flight of stairs to reception (thankfully there is a lift from there to the 5 floors).
Customer service was perfunctory and short (despite attempts to smile and greet).
The room was adequate size to open luggage and bed had clean sheets. Lighting was terrible however giving yellow paint a drab glow and making you feel like you're in a cheesy motel. Thankfully we were in Paris to sight see instead of hanging out in a room.
Bathroom was very clean but shower so tiny even as a slender personI could barely turn around!
Stay was ok, would recommend if you only intend to sleep and store luggage.

Well, let me start by saying that the hotel is a great choice for someone looking to spend little money and wanting to stay right next to a busy bar! This hotel is in the heart of Saint German, the rooms are small (like everywhere in paris), the bathroom is tiny but the shower is good. The hotel is right next to a bar, so if you're 18-40 you'll be ok, but if you're older than that, i would recommend searching for a hotel in another street, because it gets really loud until 2 am.

Don't expect frills and fuss at Hotel Des Canettes. That said, why would you want to spend time in the hotel on a trip to Paris? Centrally located in Paris' trendy Saint-Germain-des-Prés district, Hotel Des Canettes is just a few minutes walk from the Saint-Germain-des-Prés and Mabillon Metro line. Before I went to this hotel, I'd read reviews of the noise that comes from the street below (there's an Irish style pub locate directly opposite the entrance to the hotel), however I didn't find this problematic during my 2 night stay but this was probably because our room was higher up on the 5th floor. Room are small and pokey but comfortable and clean. Equipped with adequate storage space (built in cupboards), TV, bathroom with complimentary shower gel & shampoo. This hotel is perfect if you want to experience central Paris on a tight budget.

I had consulted Tripadvisor.com before booking this hotel. I had read the reviews mentioning the bar across the street from the hotel and the noise. I wish I took those comments more seriously because noise became quite a problem during our five nights at Hotel Des Canettes. Three out of five nights I had trouble sleeping. The first night there was screaming, banging, and partying both inside and outside the hotel. It was a Saturday night and the bar and street were filled with people until 4AM creating disruptive noise. Some of those noise makers went from the street into the hotel (I presume they were staying there also) making it painfully hard to sleep. The other nights were not as bad, yet I could still hear people singing and yelling most nights.

Other than the noise we really liked the hotel and the staff. They were helpful, nice, and tried their best with the language difference. The rooms were suitable for us as budget travels. Rooms were clean, had a tv, and there was enough room to move around. I'm very disappointed that the noise was such a problem since everything else worked out nicely.

The hotel is in a great area (aside from the nearby bar), plenty of shopping, places to eat, and access to the metro.

The room was very small, with old furniture but kinda OK for the price.
But the bathroom was really really small. It was difficult to take a shower without hitting the walls or turning it offf by accident.

But the location is great, with 3 subway stations nearby.

At weekends the street can be very crowded.

Hotel des Canettes is worderfully placed aside St, Sulpice, at St Germain 6 eme arr. , close to many nice bars, restaurants and points of interest in Paris. The room was tiny and smelling to cigarrete, but it was clean, shower was good and I slept very well, it worths because of location! A little bit expensive, but it's the price to stay at 6 ème!!

The hotel was clean and the staff was pleasant. I had a room overlooking the street and it was quite noisy. An Irish drinking bar can really get loud. Although the room was small, I didn't spend much time in it. Too much to see in this city. There were 3 metro stops very near the hotel. Very close to St.Germain des Pres. Cannot say enough good things about the location. I could get anywhere easily from this hotel.

Room Tip: I got a room with a bathtub which was quite nice. If noise bothers you, get a room that does not ove...
