“Great location, clean, and charming”
Reviewed 13 October 2013

I don't normally like to stay in this part of Paris because it can be very noisy and crowded, but we needed a place to stay for one night, close to RER B so that we could have an easy trip to the airport the next morning. The location is central, and surprisingly quiet, at least for us on the top floor. The room was small, but filled with everything we needed and charmingly decorated. Bonus! We had a view of the Eiffel Tower. We watched it light up at midnight during our last night in Paris. Perfectly romantic end to our stay in France. We also enjoyed the breakfast selection in the morning.

I used to stay at Jean d'Arc in the Marais district, but I think I prefer this hotel. The location is superb, practically next door to the Place de Sorbonne, the huge Luxenbourg garden, and the Pantheon. My room faces and inner courtyard and is silent. It's just five minutes from the RER Luxenbourg stop. Definitely not for the overweight or just very large (i.e. football & basketball types) with tiny elevator and tiny rooms. However, I found it quite comfortable and absolutely one of the cleanest rooms I've ever stayed in. Guy at the desk is not chatty, but he's certainly polite and does his job. I didn't get the breakfast because I never do in hotels like this--I'm addicted to a great big Starbucks in the morning, and there are TWO Starbucks right down the street, as well as a grocery where you can eat what you buy at a table in the store. Also, I like a firm bed, and this one is both firm and apparently pretty new.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the courtyard will be quieter than those facing the street.

Let's face it, the majority of us aren't going to Paris to sit in a hotel room. Most tourists are up early and out all day, only to return for rest until the next jam packed day. So yes, the hotel room is small and the lift comedically tight - but the bathroom is clean with modern fixtures, the beds are comfortable and room kept clean.

The star of this hotel is the value for what you get -You get a clean and safe place to stay in the heart of the cool Latin Quarter. Tucked up the side of the Sorbonne university, the Cluny Sorbonne is minutes from Luxembourg line and or/ Cluny Sorbonne or the great connections of Saint-Michel metro.

We walked no more than 5 mins and found a brilliant selection of bars, cafes and restaurants on the hotel's side of the Seine - and glanced over to see Notre Dam, St Germain/left bank for more options. It doesn't take long to walk to the 'lovers lock' and across to the Louvre - we couldn't believe how accessbile everything was.

I'd stay in the Cluny Sorbonne over and over again - I was safe, got great value and stayed in the heart of a brilliant city.

The Hotel Cluny Sorbonne has a great location in the Latin Quarter of Paris. The hotel is in walking distance of many metro stations, bus stops, fine restaurants, and tourist attractions. The rooms are adequate size and are carefully cleaned daily. The employees at the front desk speak several languages and are very helpful with regard to questions about Paris. The location is in a very safe and quiet neighborhood. The best part is the great value for such a good location.

staff nice helpful, daily service good, only stayed 2 nights fresh sheets & towels shower curtain. bathroom small but clean and all new fittings. Bedroom shabby with twin beds no separation, just enough room to walk around the bed, window not able to open properly without hitting the bed, no door on wardrobe as it would hit the bed. Room doors narrow, glad we did not bring the cat! great location for evening life food and drink so many to choose from just a few streets away.

This hotel has to be set within the best location in Paris. Right next to the Sorbonne University and a short stroll to Notre Dame cathedral and The Seine. Along with the big boulevards you'll find a myriad of small intimate streets, filled with bars and cafes, just minutes away.
The hotel itself is staffed by approachable, friendly people (a Paris novelty) who speak perfect English and are very accommodating to your needs.
The room was rather small but perfectly clean and serviceable, with linen and towels changed daily. Seriously this place is an absolute bargain considering the modest room rates they are charging. It fits into the budget category, but does it with a clean and professional style that's rare in such a price bracket.
Paris on a budget? The Cluny Sorbonne is the perfect solution.

Room Tip: If you struggle with mobility try to book the ground floor as the elevator is pretty small.

We stayed here for about the fifth time in the last five years. We keep coming back despite the small rooms and bathrooms because we love the very affordable price (especially the Internet specials) location: very close to the RER stop from the airport, close to other metros, across the street from the Sorbonne and up the street from the Pantheon and the Luxembourg gardens, near Notre Dame and Saint Sulpice, etc. Breakfast is a good deal, but we normally grab food and drink for half the price at the nearby 8 à 8 (fruit, OJ) and Brioche Dorée (croissants, coffee) and then into the Lux Gardens to eat breakfast outside. My only wish is that the hotel would invest in some small fans for the small rooms--it can get hot in Paris.

Room Tip: Choose the courtyard rooms--much quieter.
