“Always a good experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2009

We have stayed at the Hotel Atlantis many times throughout the years -- most recently for one night in June -- and have always been satisfied. For each stay, we opt for one of the corner rooms overlooking the courtyard. These rooms are quiet and the least expensive in the 3-star hotel because of their small size, compared to others in the building. But the room provides everything needed, such as a comfortable bed, good-sized closet, mini-bar, writing table, TV and safe. The bathroom includes two terrycloth robes and a bathtub with hand-held shower but no curtain, so it can be difficult to keep the floor dry. As the bathroom has no fan, a small window has to be used for ventilation. The hotel's tiny elevator accommodates just one adult with a couple of small bags comfortably, so I choose to use the stairs. The friendly staff speaks English and provides excellent service. We never eat breakfast in Paris hotels, preferring to buy items at boulangeries and markets, so I cannot comment on the hotel's breakfast.

The hotel's location on rue du Vieux Colombier in the sixth is absolutely superb. It stands almost in the shadow of St. Sulpice and provides easy access on foot to major museums and sights, fine restaurants, excellent bakeries, wonderful shops and good markets. It takes about five minutes to walk to the Luxembourg gardens. If guests prefer to use transport, the St. Sulpice Metro stop is about half a block away and several bus lines serve the area. Metro stops for other lines are also within easy walking distance.

A few recommendations for places that concentrate on edible items near the hotel: Viennoiserie Boulangerie, corner of rue de Rennes and rue de Mezieres, sells an excellent "baguette tradition." Pierre Herme, 72 rue Bonaparte, offers delicious cakes. Buy fresh fruit or just walk through the open-air market on Friday or Sunday morning that is held on Boulevard Raspail, starting at the corner of rue du Cherche Midi. Have a drink at an outside table under the plane trees across from St. Sulpice at the charming Cafe de la Mairie. Eat dinner at the upscale Le Palanquin, a Vietamese restaurant on the short rue Princesse, Check out indoor food markets, such as Grande Epicerie de Paris, 38 rue de Sevres; Marche Saint Germaine, 4 rue Lobineau; or Monoprix, 50 rue de Rennes.

Very nice, clean, well managed and friendly hotel. Perfect location close to historic sites, restaurants, shopping, etc. Metro station and underground parking just half a block away. When booking, if more than one person, ask for a bigger room. Very good value for money for downtown Paris.

We stayed at the Atlantis three times,1999,2001, and 2006.We have enjoyed our stay ,on every occasion. I must say, I really enjoyed the $90.00 a night rate in "99", back before the world went crazy. But Paris is Paris, and we would stay again in a heartbeat.

My daughters and I have been staying at this hotel every year since 1996. The location is phenomenal, the staff is incredibly friendly (especially if you can speak French), and the room we usually get--a huge triple with two beds plus a rollaway--is a terrific value for this neighborhood. The owners have watched my girls grow up; in fact, when our taxi pulls up, either one of the owners or a member of the staff runs out to hug and greet us. I have stayed at something like 20 hotels in Paris since the early 1980s, and I keep coming back to this one.

We stayed here twice during a two-week trip to France, three nights the first time, five nights the second. The location, smack in the middle of the 6th arrondissement, just five minutes' walk from landmarks like Les Deux Magots and St. Germain des Pres church, as well as convenient shopping (like Monoprix for bargain breakfasts), tons of restaurants at every price range, scads of clothiing stores, and just a short walk from the St. Sulpice metro station.

Both times we had rooms that overlooked the street, and we were surprised how little we heard the traffic. We could look out and see St. Sulpice church. In fact, we had the same room, but on different floors.

Our room was small, barely enough room for two big suitcases, but certainly sufficient. Beds were reasonably comfortable. The bathroom was fine, though it's hard to shower without leaving a big puddle on the floor (just half a shower door, which seems common in France), and there's no fan, which required us to open our windows in the morning to vent out the steam buildup and would probably explain the peeling paint on the wood partition between the bathroom area and sleeping area.

We knew from reading reviews here that they do not provide washcloths and so brought our own. There seems to be some deferred maintenance, cracked plaster or peeling paint that could be addressed to improve the rooms' overall appearance. It has the feel of a two-star establishment, but at a 3-star price.

The lounge in the lobby is great and very stylish, however. We did not eat breakfast in the hotel (at 12 euros rather pricey when you can walk 4 blocks to Poilane and have a fabulous croissant and then get a great cup of coffee in a bar. We bought yogurt at Monoprix and kept it in our minifridge.

On our second visit, our room reeked of cigarette smoke. The hotel is billed as non-smoking, and the woman at the desk confirmed that, but obviously the last guest in our room didn't feel like adhering to that policy. They were unable to move us, so we opened the windows a lot to air out the room.

Beware if you are claustrophobic, or of a large size, or have large luggage or cannot climb stairs, the elevator is absolutely the smallest one I have ever seen. It says it can hold three, but my husband and I barely fit shoulder to shoulder like sardines, and even then it was a pinch to get out! Our suitcases had to ride one at a time.

Would I stay here again? There are so many hotels in the area that I'd probably check them out before returning to the Atlantis.

This family-run hotel is friendly, excellently located, and good value for the money. Our room , the best one, had a king-size bed, two arm chairs and table, and a desk -- plenty of room. The bathroom was nicely renovated. We had two floor-to-ceiling windows that opened up onto small balconies, with a view of the square. The breakfast was good and plentiful. We paid about $320 for room and breakfast, including VAT, which is good for this neighborhood. We have paid much more in swankier hotels nearby, but with much smaller rooms. We are planning many return visits.

This hotel is a gem....wonderful location close to many places you want to see while in Paris. Good staff at the hotel and very comfortable rooms. The security is a benefit in this day and age. I would book again in a minute.
