Hotel is nothing as appears online. We were disappointed to see the hotel covered in scaffolding but fortunately were given a room on the top floor with a cute balcony and a charming view of the Notre dame (the saving grace of the hotel). Yes the lift is small but it's a heritage building - they have to fit it... More

Please read the reviews and find another hotel before it is too late. If I had read them, I would not have stayed. Yes, some of the reviews are good, but the majority are not.

We stayed for two nights. Our room was not exactly what we were expecting from the website photos, which was a little disappointing. Having said that, the room was adequate and clean, with comfortable beds and sufficient additional pillows. It would have just been nice to have the room like it was advertised, although that maybe because we checked in... More

We stayed at the Claude Bernard Saint-Germain hotel twice, 3 weeks apart. The one night in early June, after flying into Paris, was not what we were expecting. The reception service was OK, but as we arrived early morning, our room was not ready, but we could leave cases and return a couple of hours later. The room (21) was... More

I reserved two rooms for a three-day stay in July, but shortly after requested cancellation. They confirmed the cancellation without any penalty (fortunately I saved the email), but they charged me for one night anyway. I have since sent three emails to the hotel but they have ignored every one. I have opened an investigation with American Express so it... More

The location is excellent.The rooms are fine,very clean too. The air-conditioning worked which was very important as we were there during the heatwave. The lift is small,it fits one slim man and a large suitcas. There was no view of the street however which was disappointing, unfortunately, they were renovating the street sides of the building during our stay.

This hotel looks much better on booking.com than in the flesh. Scaffolding on the outside and room not AT ALL like the pic of the family room on the web. The room was, however, clean and beds very comfortable. In contrast, the public areas were dated, seedy and smelt of urine. Not somewhere I would ever recommend or stay again.... More

Staying in Quartier Latin

Neighborhood Profile
Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life, architectural splendor and ongoing merriment. The small streets are filled with classical buildings, student bars and lively eateries while the squares are dominated by historic monuments. The area is defined by the 800-year-old Sorbonne University, where Latin once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which celebrates the great men and women of France. During the day students rush from classes to the library and intellectuals people watch from the terraced cafés. As night time falls the surrounding establishments fill up and the merriment really begins. The liveliest parts are around Rue Mouffetard, lined with crêperies and international street food eateries, and Place de la Contrescarpe characterised by terraced brasseries, this neighborhood provides real nourishment for the mind, belly, and soul.
