The Select Hotel is modern and clean. The location is good. You're a seven minute walk to the restaurants and bars on the left bank. Water pressure is great, water is hot all the time, mattresses were comfortable and there were 4 good pillows. Like most anywhere you stay in Paris there will be street noise heard, especially early in... More

This was our 6th visit of Paris and this hotel was absolutely the best one. It has perfect location close to Luxemburg gardens (we are joggers and it is 2 mins to arrive there), it is on the RER line from the CHG airport, many possibilities to eat and to walk to famous destinations etc. The rooms are comfortable with...

This hotel was in a fantastic location and the rooms were clean and quaint. The staff was very friendly and helpful with dining selections. We'd love to visit this spectacular hotel when we're back in Paris!

Like many others on a first trip to Paris, I seemed to spend an age looking for the right hotel in a good area of the city - well I was not disappointed in my eventual choice. The hotel is in a great location on a nice Parisian square with several cafes, and adjacent to the Sorbonne. It's an easy... More

Excellent location and trendy. Excellent service except for my last night. As I was leaving the next day, I went to bed early and the room phone rang in the middle of the night. The front desk attendant told me a man was at the hotel for me and I had met him the day before at a bar. I... More

What a great hotel. Ideally situated in a lovely square by the university and within walking distance of Notre Dorm with plenty of restaurants and bars to choose from. The rooms are a little on the smallish size but more than adequate and extremely comfortable without feeling squashed! We had no issues with it at all, it was also spotless... More

What can I say – lovely hotel in an idyllic Parisian setting in Place de La Sorbonne next to Sorbonne University. We stayed at the Select Hotel Rive Gauche for three nights in August 2014. There were three of us so we booked a junior suite (room 32). The room was way bigger than we thought it would be (three... More

A lovely hotel, I stayed here for six nights in July and enjoyed the hotel's close proximity to Luxembourg Gardens, the Cluny Museum, the Pantheon, Notre Dame and other tourist attractions. Staff were very friendly and helpful, and the room I had was quite spacious compared to what I had been expecting after reading reviews on here, had nice decor... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in July. Hotel was lovely, cool decor, friendly and welcoming staff and although our room was a bit small it had everything we needed for our short break - the air con was especially welcome as we arrived during a heatwave! Would book this hotel again.
