The PLUS points first. Nicely positioned hotel near Les Gobelins Metro station. Staff all friendly and helfpul, one gentleman helping me by printing out pre-booked tickets, for example. Rooms and bathrooms a decent size for a Paris 2 star. Beds and pillows comfortable. Rooms seemed to be quite well-insulated although when I whined about a very noisy family above me... More

When comparing the price to others in Paris, this hotel is exceptionally cheap (especially if you use the communal showers). Despite this the rooms are spacious, the rooms and showers are clean and the service is excellent. The nearest metro station is 100 meters from the hotel, giving you easy access to all the attractions. Yes, the fact that you... More

We stayed there for 4 nights. There was a daily perfect cleaning, very helpful staff, 24/24, 7/7 and really high speed internet. For me, the plus of this hotel is the location. There is metro few steps from it, with easy access to the main tourist spots. Yet, several restaurants, banks, fast food and market just nearby. I definitely recommend... More

After spending 2 years living in Paris just down the road from this hotel, and sending all my guests there (no space for guests in a Paris apartment!), I now stay in this hotel whenever I go back to Paris. The staff are friendly (occasionally a little Parisian for my tastes, but not much to be done about that!) and... More

I stayed here just for one night, briefly visiting a friend in Paris. It's quite cheap, but clean, well presented and fine for a night or two which is all you can ask for at this level. The staff are friendly enough. It is a direct train ride to Port Royal station from CDG airport as well, and just a... More

This little friendly, low-key hotel has been my Paris "home" many, many times in the last 15 or so years. About 4 years ago, when I came here with my sister she recognized it as the place she used to stay - at least 10 years previously! Simple rooms, inexpensive yet clean, choices of your own bathroom (shower or tub)... More

We walked from here to S. Chapelle and the Louvre and everything in between. Near a very good market on Rue Mouffetard, Metro, university and charming neighborhoods. It's the Latin Quarter. Their free wifi is not strong. Minimal and clean.

Port-Royal Hotel is not fancy. Like most Paris hotel rooms, our double room was very small. It consisted of a mediocre bed, wardrobe instead of a closet, desk and one chair. The bathroom was equally small, with a shower and just enough room to turn around. The room did not have a TV or a safe. However, our room was... More

I don't really know what to make of this place... I love to stay in the Gobelins area when I am in Paris. It's not incredibly touristy but still close to the center of town. It's easy to walk to many of the main sites and you're on a metro line and the RER nearby takes you directly to Charles... More

I needed to cancel my room / or rather change my booking, a week before the planned arrival. The hotel insisted on payment of the *full* charge. It should have been a warning that they insisted on bank-transfer of the full fee up-front. Be careful!
