My primary criteria for any accommodation are good location, good service, and undisturbed sleep. The Hotel des Mines is quite centrally located, just a few minutes' walk from the Luxembourg RER station. From here it's only 1 stop to the St Michel station (beside the Seine and Notre Dame), and 3 stops to Gare du Nord. We found this to... More

If you are planning to stay in the Latin quarter, Hotel des Mines is a good two star alternative. Perfect location for long distance and RER trains. It is just a short walk from Luxembourg RER station. I had a quiet room away from Boulevard Saint Michel (a couple of times I could hear some kind of centrifugation (?) in... More

The hotel is not cheap - well, this IS Paris! - but the location is good, on Boulevard Saint-Michel, a few minutes from the Luxembourg RER station. I know that Paris hotels are expensive, and I know that rooms can be small, but this really was tiny. However, Paris is wonderful, and I don’t care about the size of the... More

Spent the first three nights of a 12-night France trip here. The hotel is a straight shot from CDG Airport on the RER-B (either take St. Michel or Luxembourg stops), and when we arrived very early, the front desk didn't bat an eye and handed us our room key. While small, the room was very charming (ceiling beams and Juliet... More

Just back from spending 3 nights at this hotel. We got the Rer b train from CDG to Luxembourg station (get off train and go right follow signs for l'abee de l'eee). This exit leaves you less than a 5 minute walk to the hotel. The hotel is VERY basic but kind of charming. Check in was a breeze and... More

Wifi was not working, but other than that it was almost good staying at this place. In saint michel the hotels are terribly expensive, so its a good value for money if you want to stay for a short period and its in a very good location too.

This is better than the two star rating in Paris. The rooms are very small and the bathroom in particular was tiny but everything was there and clean and comfortable. Location is good just by the Luxembourg RER station with direct link to CDG airport. Many good bars and restaurants near by and all tourist sites easily reached on foot... More

We needed a triple for us and our 17 year old. This hotel is pleasant with courteous staff but the rooms and amenities are pretty basic. The location by Luxembourg Gardens and station is very convenient however. Easy walking to Notre Dame, Pantheon, and many restaurants.

I was then for a business trip. The location is convenient, the room and bathroom small but clean, the internet connection OK and the stuff very helpful. A good value-for-money and nice surprise in the rather outrageous hotel market in Paris -

The proximity to two metro stations was convenient but we also found the location close enough to walk to many sights. The breakfast layout was confusing at first - it seemed as though all the tables were already taken until we realised that each was set with a tray, waiting for a guest to use it. Cereal, fruit, yoghurt, bread,... More
