“Home Sweet Home”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

We made a return trip to Paris and were satisfied enough with Hotel du College de France that we decided to stay here the second time around. Upon our arrival, we were welcomed and our room was ready. We got the same exact room as 2 years ago! Needless to say, we love the location, close to Notre Dame, restaurants and Metro! We did not have their breakfast which is extra BUT we did enjoy many crepes and baguettes from the bakery in front of the Metro station (Maubert-Mutualite).

** our room was not cleaned for 2 days (we made sure to put the sign outside our door for cleaning). We didn't take it to heart, we were in Paris! But for others this might be a small problem

Stayed May 2014, travelled as a couple

The Hotel was clean, the rooms quite small, and the breakfast was good, but expensive.
The location of this hotel is excellent in the Latin quarter, all restaurants in the neighborhood
We had a pleasant stay at this hotel.

Getting a combination of a good hotel with a quiet location in a good area is a treat in Paris. This one is in the Sorbonne area, close to Place Maubert with its wonderful market. Short downhill walk to Notre Dame cathedral and convenient metro station steps away. Very good value for the price and above average breakfast offerings. Lots of reasonably priced restaurants in the area. Try walking up the hill to the rue de la Montagne Sainte Genevieve and on to Rue Mouffetard for a great assortment of restaurants.

A great combination of reasonable prices (for Paris) easy access to major sites and very friendly service. Book early!

Room Tip: Ask for room 64, at the top. Note that it is 1 floor above the last level for the elevator, as a res...

Had a wonderful week-long stay here in April while sightseeing in Paris and firstly I must commend the staff for being truly excellent. We were always greeted with a friendly smile, or joke. Most importantly the staff were fantastically helpful with advice, information and knowledge about the local area and visiting Paris. Want a laundromat? No worries, here's a mini-map and directions. Restaurant recommendations? Sure. Tickets to the Eiffel Tower? No problems. The staff really are the icing on the cake at Hotel du College de France.

Our triple room was small (no, kidding, this is Paris) but adequate and very clean. I liked that the double bed was not pushed up against the wall (as is often the case with small rooms) and there was enough space to move around it. A big tick goes to the bathroom - very good size and including a bath. Hallelujah after travelling for three weeks, great to have an actual bath.

The location in Saint Germain is lovely, very cosmopolitan and close to many of the sites. Notre Dame is only a couple of minutes away and if you're feeling energetic you could even walk to the Eiffel Tower. Plus there is a very nice market nearby a couple of days a week.

A great place to stay and we would certainly come back next time we're in Paris.

Fantastic experience at this small hotel in a great location in Paris. Near Notre Dame and lots of restaurants and shops on St.Germaine. Close to bus and subway. Fantastic service, we even got a bottle of wine and snacks one night. Room was adequate and clean with a nice sized bathroom with a tub which is rare! Would definitely stay here again and recommend to others.

We booked this hotel for our stay in Paris. It is in a good area near the University, Pantheon, Notre Dame, and a Metro station. Close to cafés on St. Germaine. For the money, it was good, clean, and a great location. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Would stay there again and recommend to others.
