This hotel is well located in the area just north of the Luxembourg Gardens. There are many restaurants nearby, at different price levels. The rooms are small and basic, but well worth the price. The breakfast is good and reasonably priced at 12 Euro.

We stayed for a long weekend to support a family member running in the Paris marathon. The location is great, just off the Rue St. Germain , and it was only a short walk from Luxembourg station which is on the RER from Orly airport. We felt that the prices were very reasonable by Paris standards and the rooms are... More

Had a wonderful weekend in Paris and stayed at this very cosy and most of all clean hotel. Will definitely stay there if I ever visit Paris again. The location is perfect, all kinds of restaurants within 5 min walk and less than 10 min walk from the river Seigne.

My husband and I spent five nights here and were very happy. The location is near the Odeon metro and within walking distance of many wonderful places in Paris. The breakfast offered great variety and everything was delicious. The hotel is spotless. The staff always helpful. A very well run hotel. We will stay here next time we visit Paris!

This is a beautiful little hotel right in the heart of everything. I loved the decor. It's a 2 minute walk from the metro station and lots of lovely cafes and restaurants nearby.

Grand Hotel des Balcons is a simple, but charming hotel, very well situated in the heart of Paris. Easy access by metro. Rooms are simple but clean and not very expensive. Every time I have to go to Paris I choose this hotel.

We enjoyed being in a hotel with a real French flavor. It is in a good location near the metro and numerous restaurants and within walking distance of many attractions. The staff was extremely helpful. Many of the double rooms are quite small, but adequate with sufficient storage space. Bathroom was small without a shower curtain, but this did not... More
