I recently spent a week here and quickly realized that the location of the hotel is really convenient to nearly every main attraction in Paris. Although the metro and major boulevards are very close, the hotel itself is on a small and pretty quiet street. As is apparently true of most European hotels, the rooms were quite small, but livable.... More

Absolutely central location, near Saint-Germain-des-Prés but not right smack in the tourist district, extremely easy access to lots of things you will want to do in Paris (5 minutes to Brasserie Balzar). Our room was genuinely small (double bed with 2 ft on either side, 3 ft to the desk, small bathroom) but had a nice window onto Casimir Delavigne.... More

We have now stayed twice at this wonderful hotel. The staff are delightful and helpful, it is very clean, and the location is excellent, on a small quiet street but minutes from the Metro, Luxembourg Gardens, fine eating places, and within walking distance to many points of interest. A highlight is the gracious breakfast room with delicious food - my... More

I have stayed at the Grand Hotel des Balcons for several years on personal trips to Paris and with small groups that I bring to France. I've referred many clients to the hotel.

The staff is always considerate, well-informed, and friendly. The Art Deco theme of the early Twentieth Century is pleasing and tastefully done, both in the rooms and the lobby and dining room. The breakfast is a wonderful opportunity to fortify oneself before setting out to explore. The neighbourhood is quiet and close to many sites I like to visit. Nearby... 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.
