I arrived at about 6 in the morning and didn’t expect my room to be ready. But the man on duty told me that if I wanted to throw a sheet (clean, which he gave me) over the bed in a room that had just been vacated, I was welcome to. It may sound weird, but honestly, I was exhausted... More

I am very glad to have discovered this little gem of a hotel. The location is pure perfection - few minutes' walk from some of key points in Paris - love the proximity to Louvre, and Le Bon Marche. It is well connected with metro as it is very close to 2 metro stations. The street is very quiet and... More

The hotel was beautiful and in a great location, I was impressed by the size of the room and the bathroom, we even had a bathtub! The bed was super comfortable and the decor was modern with some classic pieces. I would definitely stay there again, the location was excellent, we pretty much walked everywhere and there were plenty of... More

I've stayed here twice & will definitely stay here again. Rooms & bathrooms are decent-sized for Paris and the staff are friendly and helpful. Location is perfect, no touristy crowds and relatively quiet but near everywhere else you'd want to go to by walking. Friendly locals in the shops & restaurants. Wishlist: Stronger wi-fi signal in the upper floors and... More

Stayed at this hotel for 6 nights during Christmas. The room and bathroom was absolutely gorgeous, cleaned every day and very modern. Bed was comfortable and huge. Couldn't fault the staff, all very helpful and friendly. The hotel is right near some lovely restaurants and only a short walk to the louvre. Was on the top floor (4th floor) and... More

Only stayed for one night. Room was a decent size. Bathroom was modern and relatively spacious. Elevator is teeny tiny but that was known and is to be expected. There is construction on the street making it a bit noisy during the day and also made it difficult for the taxi to reach the front door both when arriving and... More

This is a perfect place for a private tour in Paris. Rooms are well equipped, you will find everything you need. Location is relatively quiet, still near the Invalides metro station. Staff kind and helpful. Price acceptable.

I booked this hotel based on trip advisor reviews and the reviews are accurate. I couldn't ask for a better boutique hotel at an excellent location. Room is clean, well appointed and the bed is very comfortable. Bathroom is new, modern clean. Location is walking distance to almost any major sights. It's about less than 10 mins walk (less with...

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

Neighborhood Profile
In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops, ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants. Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine art school and small museums hide in unassuming squares. The neighborhood’s namesake church is the oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented musicians every weekend. The Luxembourg Gardens house the national senate, splendid lawns and flourishing flower beds. Famous faces and bourgeois Parisians frequent Saint Germain accompanied by the students of Rue Saint Guillaume and Rue des Saints-Pères. This is a neighborhood where afternoon people-watching from a café or playing cards in a brasserie are a key part of the daily fabric.
