You just can't beat the location and price for close-in Paris. I take the RER in from the airport to Luxembourg Gardens, saving more $, time and hassle. The rooms are always clean, the new lobby has a small, comfortable waiting area with Paris library, baggage holding room, and restroom. Breakfast on a previous 2013 trip was just fine with... More

Great location, not a bad price (about 130 EUR, but also had a weekend deal). This was suggested to us by a family member who found this place years ago. It is now our go-to hotel in Paris. Walking distance to the Louvre, Notre Dame, etc. Seemed to be safe area, and it had decent shops and restaurants near by.... More

This hotel was very conveniently located in a nice quiet area of Saint Germain. It was within walking distance of a number of attractions, Notre Dame & Louvre, within walking distance to metro stations, restaurants and shops. Also not too far from airports for an reasonably priced Taxi ride. The hotel and reception staff were very friendly and helpful from... More

In the 6th, on a quiet street. I have stayed her four times, most recently in July of 2014. Rooms are small, but it has never bothered me. No air conditioner. Street noise is troublesome only temporarily. I consider it "my hotel" in Paris, though I rented an apartment for a week in 2013 in the Marais. The breakfasts are... More

The Grand Hotel des Balcons is situated in a convenient location in the 6th. Boarding the beautiful Jardin, this is a relatively quiet part of the city, yet you are within walking distance to many attractions. I will defiantly consider staying here again.

We recently spent 4 nights at the hotel. Whilst the room was maybe a little on the small side (I think with the price of property in that part of Paris, that's par for the course), we had a really enjoyable stay. The staff were all very pleasant. The beds were so comfortable, and there was clean linen every day.... More

The Grand Hôtel des Balcons is located in the 6th arrondissement, one of the most sought after boroughs in Paris for high fashion, designers' products, and splendid restaurants, not to mention its numerous cultural, historical and sightseeing attractions. A half-block away is the Théâtre de l'Odéon, two block in the opposite direction is Boulevard Saint-Germain for "window shopping" and more,... More

Great location and a nice, comfortable room. We really enjoyed the breakfast and one family (who we thought may have been in ownership of the property) graciously offered champagne during New Year's breakfast. Overall, a very pleasant experience for the most part. The only issue seemed to be with gentleman who ran the front desk during the night shift, whom... More

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

Neighborhood Profile
Saint-Germain-des-Pres
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.
