My husband and I stayed in the Hotel Claude Bernard for three nights at the end of October. We loved where the hotel was situated and we enjoyed a small, but clean, and charming room with a balcony. The people at the front desk were very helpful and we appreciated starting our days with the very adequate breakfast. We found... More

I can't explain how pleased my family and I were to stay here! It was the easiest place to get to, with so many bistros, pastry shops, restaurants, grocery stores and Crépe/Sandwich nooks everywhere! To start, when you stay here you are a short walk to Luxembourg Palace, Notre Dame, Palaise de Justice, Seine, Pantheon, and the Louvre is just... More

I was travelling alone but got what appeared to be a family room. Nespresso coffee maker in the room and lots of space - very unlike other paris hotel rooms. Price was good (for paris) and very close to many attractions. I walked to Notre Dame, Louvre, Place de la Concorde, Champs Elysees to the Arc de Triomphe and back... More

I stayed here June 6 and 7th 2014. Best location of all hotels I have stayed at so far. Front desk staff super friendly. Room was spotless. Wifi was fast, bed comfortable. Bathroom was VERY small but it's Paris and I am never in the room so it didn't bother me at all. Air conditioning worked perfectly. It has a... More

Victim of overbooking, I was sent via taxi to another hotel, way cheaper and with only 2 stars... And they made me pay the same price! Although the price of the rooms in this hotel are almost twice cheaper.

Dear Sir, It is not a surbooking. You have booked a room with Amadeus The credit card was not valid. And impossible to contact you to inform you that the card is not valid (no phone, no email,...) So, we could not secure a room for you. So your comment and your note is a vengeance and not very right... More

Good choice. Nice little hotel extremely well located. RER B in Saint Michel takes you straight to Charles De Gaule airport. Plenty of shops and restaurants open late. Rooms are small but comfy. I had a single room which was really spacious, room 61. The elevator was tiny but useful to take luggage to the 6th floor. Breakfast is basic... More

The staff is friendly and helpful but the room sizes for a "double" vary widely. We had prepaid with a request to be in a corner room with balcony as these are larger. Our first room (31?) the only one available) was barely big enough for our double bed and our luggage. The bathroom was also super tiny. We changed... More

The hotel is a fantastic value. The location can't be beat, the staff is incredibly helpful and welcoming, and the hotel itself is comfortable and clean. Our room was very well-sized for Paris, the beds were very comfortable, and the street noise (always present in Paris) was not too bad. Everyone was very welcoming to our 22-month old daughter -...

Overall we enjoyed our experience at the Hotel Claude Bernard. The staff was very friendly and quite helpful and the location is only a few minutes walk from the Luxembourg Garden, Notre Dame, and a number of Metro stops. We booked a Double room that we expected to be relatively small. It was, but it was also nicely furnished with... More

Eurostar recommended this hotel as part of a travel + hotel package. The location is excellent as it is in the Latin quarter of Paris 50 metres from the Sorbonne. A host of restaurants very near, the concierge recommended Le Coupe Chou and Le Petit Prince which were both really good (80 Eur for 2 incl wine). Double room clean... More
