Hotel Sainte Beuve was very much as described by other travelers on TripAdvisor. The hotel is absolutely lovely, down to every detail. The lobby area is small but elegant, and our room was just as depicted in pictures. We had the larger room, and it was quite comfortable and very handsome. Great care has been taken with the decorations throughout. To me, the only negative is that the location is a little out-of-the-way, but it is very close to two metro stops, and it is walkable to the Saint-Germain area, albeit a good, healthy walk. But I think it is an excellent value, and I would be delighted to have the opportunity to stay there again.
