Very competent, though not a warm, reception - but you're in Paris of course! Clean; small really tiny twin bedroom. Good value. Our room above the street was surprisingly quiet until 9 a.m - oh joy! I'd not take the €12 breakfast - better to walk up to the cafe overlooking the Luxembourg garden where there's a very fine display... More

The hotel is comfortable and clean. The staff is nice and helpful. The location is excellent to enjoy the nightlife of St. Germain neighborhood and in a walk distance to Ile de la Cite. But the rooms doesn't have air conditioning (maybe important in the high summer).

We have stayed at this hotel for the last 3 or 4 years and have never had any complaints. When travelling by train the Odeon Station ( metro line 4 ) is ideally situated and a short walk to the hotel. Gare de Nord and Montparnesse stations are on line 4 . The hotel rooms have recently been re decorated... More

Conveniently placed on Metro route 4. Easy access from Gare du Nord. Friendly, helpful staff in accommodation with no complaints. However, there is a lack of lounge area. Seating in reception is too limited to call a lounge. We upgraded our room but this was not cost effective as lower rate rooms were more than adequate. One day, French hoteliers... More

Two of us stayed here in June and we really enjoyed it. The room was small but expected for Paris and it was definitely manageable. Everything was clean and the washroom was great. The location is about a five minute walk to the River. They were all really friendly there and let us into our room early. The breakfast was... More

Maybe the "Grand" in the hotel name is a little misleading, as Grand Hotel des Balcons felt like a small and very friendly hotel. My single room was small, but included everything I needed, except a shoehorn, toothpaste and shaving foam, of which the two last mentioned were easily obtainable in the neighbourhood. Good price, central location and nice breakfast.... More

Friendly staff and one of the few hotels in France where it is worth having the breakfast - excellent choice including cooked breakfast and a wide range of fruits, cheese, bread, dried fruit and nuts, cereals, croissants and pains au chocolat.

The hotel is very clean, staff extremely helpful, everythink fine, but THE BEST tHING is the position: you are just 1 minute from the Odéon, in the very centre of the city. Good price, nice breakfast, single room small but confortable.... no regrets!

We stayed at des Balcons for two nights in July 2014 and had one quadriduple room for four and another superior room for two persons. We requested an upper floor and noted the hotel of our early arrival in advance. At arrival well before 11 am, adjacent rooms in the highest floor were ready for us! The service was extremely...

This is a perfect little hotel in the heart of the "Latin Quarter". In walking distance to dozens of food places, cafes, bars, etc., and also many of Paris' wonderful tourist attractions, It is right next to the Sorbonne -- the leading university and academic research centers of the world. You can't beat the location. I was there attending a... More
