“Left bank boutique hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2014 via mobile

Hotel Dauphine has very classy rooms with a detailed French feel to them. They are elegantly appointed and although everything feels a little close they are very comfortable and we had a very enjoyable stay. The staff are very friendly and happy to help you with anything. There is very nice breakfast for 12 euros and it is worth it. If you want to stay in a great neighbourhood, the 6 ieme has lots of great cafes. Make Hotel Dauphine your base.

Dear Brian,

It is very pleasant for us to read a comment like yours regarding our hotel and we thank you for it.
As you wrote, our hotel is like Paris, small and cozy in a historic building from the 17th century.

Everything has been done to create a typical Parisian atmosphere

Your recommendation will be very helpful for us and especially the next guests.

We hope to welcome you another time when you can.

Best regards,

Comfortable, convenient, quiet and friendly. A referral from a friend, and she was spot on. We couldn't have picked a better spot. My 9 and 12- year old boys also enjoyed it. Breakfast also very good with excellent service. Thanks for being great hosts.

I recently was on a 2 day business trip in Paris and location was very important. I chose the Dauphine St. Germain in the Latin Quarter. Great pricing, great location, but above all loved the hotel. Small, but very warm and cozy with beautiful décor. Rooms are standard to Deluxe and suites are well appointed and spacious. I was in a standard room, small but very elegant, good bed and lots of space for everything. However, what made this hotel really great for me was the staff, from Adrien the Manager to Eva in the dining room, everyone was friendly, accommodating and could not do enough to make my stay more comfortable. Great people who seemed to always want to go over and above. Located a few steps from Pont Neuf, with the Louvre Museum right there, as well as St. Germain, St. Michel and easy access to everything. Highly recommend this hotel. Free wifi.

Room Tip: Depending on budget, standard rooms are fine, but if budget is not a problem, go for the suites.

We stayed here for 2 nights a couple of weeks ago. It was our third time there (2005, 2012 and 2014), and as in the past, the Dauphine St-Germain proved to be an excellent choice. We had requested the same room we had stayed in during our previous trips (No. 32, facing the street).We arrived early and the room was not ready, so we left our bags at the main desk and went out for a walk and some lunch (try a place called Coci, around the corner...they have excellent sandwiches and salads). The room is small, normal for Paris standards, with a good bathroom and comfortable bed. It could have better lighting, but everything else works out fine. The elevator is small, but my wife and me were able to fit in with our two large suitcases, so it should be fine for most. The street is noisy during the day, but quiets down at night. The location is perfect for visiting all the tourist spots (Notre Dame, Louvre, Orsay, Les Invalides all withing walking distance), and there is a metro stop a block from the hotel for longer runs. The St Germain area is packed with nice restaurants for all types of budgets, there is also a small supermarket and produce market for anything you need. The hotel offers free wifi, which worked perfectly. The TV in the room is rather small too....but who wants to watch TV while in Paris? We did not have breakfast at the hotel, though it looked well served. We are not big breakfast persons, so we just grabbed a chocolate croissant from a bakery that is 10 meters from the hotel, and ran along. In summary, this hotel is an excellent choice for your stay in Paris and I highly recommend it. It will certainly be the hotel of my choice when we return to Paris.

For my first trip to Paris, we stayed at the Hotel Dauphin. I could not have been happier! Wonderful staff, heavenly breakfast, an ideal room. Very romantic and picturesque without being over cute! Location is fabulous; easy walk to Pont Neuf, cafes. the Louvre, Notre Dame, cafes, pubs, shops, parks.
Can't wait to return!

Have spent 2 nights here in the amazing room with monkey wallpaper! Staff were brilliant and very helpful, love the water and pastries in reception. The room was lovely, beds comfy and everything clean. Shower was on the small side but lovely to come back to after lots of walking during the day! Great area for getting around to explore and lots of great restaurants, bakeries and bars. Only downside was the small safe...just big enough for passports!! Thank you for a brilliant place to explore Paris!!
