I spent 3 nights at the hotel. On my visit visit in June 2014, the hotel was under constructions. The hotel itself was very unimpressive. The room was nice though, but the shower is small, the air conditioning did not work and we had to ask couple of times before getting stuff there were missing in the room. The good... More

I traveled here with a group of college education majors. The hotel was very accommodating of some of our more demanding peers. The concierge was polite and insightful. The location was close to the Metro and across from a delicious patisserie... Check it out :) I will be staying here again soon!

I spent five nights at the Hotel Sophie Germain. Staff of the hotel were extremely friendly and helpful. The location were great. Metro and RER stations nearby, and some shops at the neighborhood, for example couple of Monoprixs, wine and cheese shops, a toy store etc. There were also a lot of restaurants and cafes nearby. My room was on... More

The rooms are smallish, but adequaet. The staff is very friendly and ready to help. The breakfast was far more better than I expected, although the coffee was instant coffee. The location is excellent, the metro station is just 50 meter away, the RER B station is 5 minutes walk away. Not too many shops around though. Few very good... More

The good. Location is fine, bit residential. Lots of shops on Ave du General Leclerc. 3 metro stops very near, less than 5 mins walk to all. Lines 4 and 6. The stations are Mouton Duvernet, Alesia, Denfert Rochereau. They look far out on the map, but you can get to Trocadero in about 15 / 20 mins. Also just... More

I spent nine nights at the Hotel Sophie Germain, in room 101. I would recommend it and would stay there again myself. The room was well sized, with two single beds pushed together to make a queen; a small desk w/TV above and mini fridge below; two side tables; and a comfortable chair. The bathroom was practically palatial by European... More

I spent a night so miserable that it convinced me to open an account in Tripadvisor to share my experience. Shame that I'm starting with a negative one: I booked 3 nights and ended staying one. To cut a long story short it was a room with a broken heater, on a cold night, and a toilet flush that only... More

We had the room n°105. The hotel is well located: 50 meters from the subway and less than 10 min from the RER. The street (one way street) is very calm. The welcome was very warm and we had the opportunity to let our luggages in the room even the "official" check-in is not supposed to be before 15h00.... The... More

We have been staying at Hotel Sophie Germain since 2004. We chose it for the neighborhood, proximity to metro/bus/RER, and its fair prices. We love returning here because of the wonderful kind staff, comfortable and clean rooms, and ongoing efforts to enhance the hotel and amenities. We have seen the reception and room renovations, addition of flat-screen tv and a... More
