I would ignore the negative ratings of this hotel - the rooms are small (normal in Europe) but the beds are comfortable, staff helpful when asked, rooms are clean, and the a/c is cold. The location cannot be beat - many things are within walking distance, Notre Dame, Louvre, and even some good cafe's. Metro Stations are also close. Negatives... More

I booked this hotel via Expedia and picked it for the price I got and for its top-notch location. Who can beat Place de la Sorbonne in Paris?... I was generally very pleased with this hotel. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The room was not very big, but it was made very clear on Expedia that it was... More

We are booking a large group at this hotel and I had to email directly for some room requests. LAURE was exceptional. Each email was answered promptly and courteously. I am looking forward to the stay and will update this upon completion.

Excellent location, so close to everything, very clean and staff friendly and professional. Place de la Sorbonne offers a fantastic outlook for the hotel. Easy to walk to Luxembourg gardens and to river and all the attractions. Rooms small but to be expected in an inner city hotel. Would definitely stay again. Good value for money.

Very nice hotel in a perfect Paris location. Staff is professional, friendly and attentive. The wifi is spotty; computers, smartphones and tablets connect but dropout consistently unless you are in the lobby. A few other amenities would that might be considered are small in-room refrigerators and the availability of ice.

Beware, if you like your showers you may want to rethink this selection. It was a tub with a hand held shower head. I had to sit on the floor of the tub and hold the shower head while trying to soap up. When I asked downstairs about the shower I was told this was the typical French shower (my... More

1st time in Paris and the location was great with lots around and a great place to start to see the sites. Clean with and awesome shower and the staff was very helpful. But sleeping past 5am was hard due to the excessive noise ie doors slamming and eventually the handy upkeep the hotel was doing to a few rooms.... More

My wife and I spent two days here for her 60th Birthday, getting back today. What a find in the most picturesque setting with a real vibe created by the Place de La Sarbonne. I have to say that the TV embedded into the Bathroom Mirror was a first....very impressive. Rooms, though small, were beautifully designed to maximise space and... More

When I first saw the very small room we were assigned, I was ready to give this hotel a bad review, and then the staff turned everything around. The hotel is very well located, on a plaza adjacent to the Sorbonne, about 2 blocks north of the Luxembourg Gardens. It's far enough away from the touristy haunts near the Seine... More

My wife and I stayed at the Select in late May and found it to be just fine for our 3-day stint in Paris. The location is unbeatable - we found the Left Bank to be so much more enjoyable than the tourist crush on the other side of the river - as it sits on the very charming Place... More
