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

Classical Parisian hotel in an old, but renovated, building situated in the most charming area of academic ambiance and the popular touristic spots including NotreDam, Pantheon etc etc. I got a room at the 6th floor with 3 beds for myself; nice view and lots of space. Very small/narrow lift just for 2 persons at the most, or one person... More

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for 4 days during our Honeymoon in July. We loved the location as it was close to a lot of shopping, restaurants and key Paris location. The staff was very helpful and excellent with anything we needed. While some reviews say the rooms are small, we didnt find this a problem. We... More

Although I had problems with accessing WiFi and TV issues for 3 days, I want to commend Marina, a staff member. She was most pleasant and tried to answer/address my concerns. She was patient and explained the cause of the problems I encountered and made every effect to make the stay pleasant.

I was looking for several things when booking this hotel. A room for 4 people,breakfast included in price(not easy to find), great location(one in our group uses a wheelchair,so Paris metro is not an option),elevator,and air-conditioning. This hotel met all requirements very nicely for a reasonable price for the area. The hotel staff was friendly and spoke English. The lobby... More

It's Paris where hotel rooms can be small and often expensive - I appreciate that. However, this hotel has to be the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. A VERY small, dirty and dingy room. Not a good start when the door to the room is dirty and shabby, though worst was to come. The bathroom was small but... More

The thought of staying in an highly recommended hotel in the Latin Quarter was so overwhelming I left the booking to others. Regrettably the hotel booked by the travel agent failed to live up to the expected standards requested. On arrival the room I was shown was decidedly inadequate and reached by a severly twisting and long staircase. I decided... More

Close to the Louvre, Musee D'Orsay, Notre Dame, Eiffel Tower, Sorbonne, Seine river cruises, St. Chappell, etc., walking distance to key places to visit - easy access to Metro or RCR to avoid expensive Paris taxis. Continental breakfast available everyday - quaint 2 person elevator - rooms are clean, updated bathrooms with marble, balconies for standing, (a bit too small... More

We spent two nights at this hotel because the other hotels in the area that we usually stay in were full. Positives: good service, great location, very clean room, comfortable bed and pillows. Negatives: very small, pokey room (even for Paris). Our room on the first floor was badly affected by noise from other rooms and from above. I wouldn't... More
