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.
