Located at the Place de la Sorbonne, few hundred meters from the St. Michel/Notre Dame metro/train station (direct train to Versailles). Notre Dame short walk away and Pantheon around the corner. So the location is very good. The hotel itself is nice looking and good standard in general. The breakfast was a little disappointing with croissants and some sub-level scrambled... More

Hard to beat the location at the Sorbonne. Quiet hotel with average breakfast and room rates higher than similar hotels. The staff is perfunctory, the lift qualifies as a tall dumbwaiter, that, in a pinch, could carry a person and one small bag. Room bathrooms are tiny, and the shower matches--not even space for a shower curtain--so splash the bathroom... More

My grandaughter and I took this trip to make good on a promise I made to her 4 years ago. If she could speak the language she was taking as a freshman I would take her to France (this is the language she chose). She graduated this year and this was our trip. She made the reservations and planned the... More

Clean, modern hotel in an excellent location. 5 mins walk from Notre Dame, Pantheon, Luxembourg Gardens. Situated down a quiet side street with no traffic/other noise. Three handy bistros situated in pedestrian area directly outside hotel door. Friendly, helpful staff with facility to leave your bag if you are early checking in or when you have checked out and do... More

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
