Adjacent to a metro stop, the Hotel Cluny Sorbonne is a great option for active travelers. While I wouldn’t say that it’s in the center of the action, the metro makes it very convenient and there are many restaurants and attractions that are within walking distance.

I know it is tough to find value in paris. I would rather spend my travel money on food, wine and wine. And not in that order. So for this value hotel I was hoping to find a hidden gem based on these reviews. The staff was friendly. But the room was terrible. I did not mind that the room... More

A reasonably priced (for Paris) hotel near Luxembourg RER station to get to the airport. good base for exploring the Latin Quarter. The room was very small and also recently updated and very clean—on the back of the building, not noisy.

This modest but bright, and cheerfully decorated, small hotel is directly opposite the Sorbonne within walkable distance to nearby sights (Ile de la Cite, Jardin des Plantes, Latin Quarter, The Louvre, etc.), and excellent acces to a wide variety of nearby restaurants (the local intellectuals' historical favourite "Balzar" is at the end of the block). The immaculately clean and sunny... More

I and my wife stayed here 7th-12th April 2014. We are somewhat old (82 and 78). The hotel is well situated for access to the Ile de France (Notre Dame etc). The room was very small, and that was the only down side. Room #22 had a window onto the central open space [rectangular air space - not a courtyard]... More

This hotel is right next to a major university which means you won't be able to go to sleep until 1am or so. Until then there will be loud parting, music, motorbikes, and loud yelling. In the morning dumpsters being unloaded. The breakfast was more basic than any hotel I've stayed at in France...no cheese, no yogurt, no fruit...just bread,... More

We stayed at Hotel Cluny Sorbonne recently and found it to be very convenient. Close to restaurants, and many sights. We walked to the Louvre from there one day and home from the Eiffel Tower. The bathroom is very very small and the room was taken up by the bed, but it was very comfortable. No English TV news everything... More

I don't think I have ever stayed in such a small hotel room before. The lift up to the 5th floor was so tiny so if you don't like small spaces I'd avoid this hotel. The hotel room was very hot and very noisy in the middle of the night there was a lot going on in the hallway that... More

Can't beat the couple-minute walk to the metro servicing the greater Paris area; it definitely helped to have a short walk home from the station on our first day with luggage and our many days with tired legs/feet. While our room was small (by American standards), it is by no means uncomfortable or unsatisfactory, and nothing short of what we... More

good hotel, excellent value for money. Very helpful, friendly staff. It is in an excellent position for exploring centre of Paris, especially on foot - is there any other way! . Latin Quarter is a very interesting and fun area to stay, with lots of good restaurants
