“Return Trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

I stayed at this small hotel two years ago with my daughter. We liked it so much I returned with my husband for a few nights. On my first trip my room was small, but beautifully decorated, and the bathroom was a good size.
This time my husband and I had a bigger room overlooking the street. As is the rest of the hotel, again it was beautifully decorated with charming pieces of furniture.
On our first night we shared a bottle of champagne with some friends, in the bar area. Again this is small, but intimate, and our friends commented on how much ambience this space has.
We love the Montparnasse area, and will definitely use this hotel again when we return to Paris.

Room Tip: A larger room overlooking the street.

Dear guests,
It was a pleasure for us to read your kind review.
We were delighted to welcome you again and really pleased to see that you still enjoy the ambiance.
We have indeed been trying for several years now to keep the same atmosphere in our hotel, which our guests like very much. We do have a cosy and intimate bar area for our guests. To add even more charm to this atmosphere, we lit a real chimney fire in our lobby every evening during winter.
We have 4 different types of rooms, with different sizes as well. Several photos are available on the hotel’s website.
We hope to welcome you again and again in our hotel.
Best regards,
Charlotte and Laurent Inchauspé

Got back recently from a 5-day stay at the hotel and can't say enough good things about it. From the very first day of our email contact to them through the last day when we checked out, the hotel staff went above and beyond the call of duty in their responsiveness, personal courtesies and overall helpfulness. We found this hotel to be conveniently located in a nice area with good bakeries, cafes and metro stations close by, but not to the point where it was overly-touristy like other popular neighborhoods in Paris. The hotel is beautifully maintained with well appointed furnishings and decor, so it really does feel like a high end boutique hotel tucked away in a safe and local neighborhood. Also special thanks to the hotel staff for generously accommodating our small group of friends who traveled from all different parts of the globe to visit your beautiful city!

Dear guests,
We were truly touched by your kind review.
We take great pride in providing the highest level of service at any time. Our staff is therefore delighted to help guests during their stay with dinner reservations or excursion bookings. They are of course always happy to answer any questions our guests might have before their stay.
Our hotel is “surrounded” by many restaurants, bistros and boulangeries; this area is therefore really enjoyable. Moreover the Jardin du Luxembourg is just one minute walk away from the hotel.
We also pay extra attention to the decoration and layout in our hotel to maintain the welcoming and cosy atmosphere our guests like.
The whole team looks forward to welcoming you and your friends again in the future.
Best regards,
Charlotte et Laurent Inchauspé

I loved staying at Hotel Sainte Beuve. The location was perfect for me. I liked that the hotel is in a safe neighborhood far enough from the crowds, but close enough to walk to major attractions. I enjoyed being so close to Luxembourg Gardens as well as many nice restaurants and bakeries. The hotel is also very close to the metro and RER. The room was very clean and stylish and my bathroom was beautiful and spacious. Every member of the staff was friendly, professional, and helpful at all times. I would definitely stay there again.

Dear guests,
First of all we want to thank you for sharing your experience in our hotel.
The location of our hotel is really convenient: close enough to major attractions and yet in a typical quiet area. Our guests can therefore easily discover Paris during the day, and come back to a quieter place in the evening to relax. Moreover, there are countless restaurants and bistros in the neighborhood.
Providing the highest level of service to our guests is one of our top priorities. We were thus really pleased to read that you enjoyed it.
Our rooms have different atmospheres and colours, which you can see pictures of on our official website. On the other hand, all our bathrooms offer the same nice Parisian black and white ambiance.
We sincerely hope to welcome you again in the future.
Best regards,
Charlotte et Laurent Inchauspé

Wonderful stay in a small, boutique hotel. Central location, almost everything is in walking distance. On a quiet narrow street, no street noise to speak of. But, did have two Metro stops within a block. Rooms were nice, smallish as you would expect. Bathrooms were larger than expected and clean. Didn't eat breakfast there, but there are many options for breakfast close. The proximity to the Luxembourg Garden is a very definite plus. Definitely the staff is what made the stay, however. Friendly, accomodating, helpful in every way. Will be our hotel in Paris in the future.

I'm not sure if it's my time of life but I've stayed in some of the better hotels of late (that is in my limited experience). My wife booked this hotel as part of a trip that she planned to mark my 50th birthday. She couldn't have got it more right. Generally the hotels in Paris needn't try too hard, they are after all in one of (if not THE) most beautiful towns in the world another will sell rooms as a result.. The hotel Sainte Beuve is different - we hit on a gem. First it's location - 6th Arr. is just about the best for us. It's a stride from the tourist centre, in fact its a stroll through the beautiful Luxembourg Gardens. But, the district immediately around the hotel is one full of interest too and one in which I'm happy to while away my time in the genuinely original bars, street markets that sell food, not trash and with Parisians. In fact it's like being in the capital of France!

One's arrival at any hotel often sets the tone for a stay, the staff greeting and the reception area form the first impressions. These were both excellent. The interior design of the hotel made us feel good when we arrived, the staff had a competent and relaxed manner. Together, these made us instantly feel like we could make this our home for the next few days.

Paris is easy to walk through, it's beautiful, my favourite city to walk in in fact. After putting a few miles under our belts and photos in the camera, returning to the Sainte Beuve did indeed feel like walking into a home from home.

The room was comfortable, the bed especially and the decor maintained the tasteful yet homely feel to the place. Crucially, the quality was high too. A clever mix.

The bathroom was nice, small (it's Paris after all), but ample and of a pleasingly good standard. Everything worked, and I don't mean just technically. There was no need to accommodate any slight malfunctions in fittings or function.

I'd like to make particular mention of the staff. They were excellent in every respect. Enough said.

I've read that this hotel is noted for its high returning customer numbers. Put me down as one more and I'm certain if you stay here, you'll be one too.

Room Tip: Superior double.

We absolutely loved our stay at the Hotel and would comeback in an heartbeat! Located On a small street in the nice quite neighborhood of the 6th arrondissement close to the metro. A very chic and stylish lobby with an exceptionally friendly and helpful staff. We decided to pay extra for the breakfast and it was outstanding. A beautiful set table greeted us each morning. There were many selections to choose from including a fresh fruit salad, orange juice, cereal, ham, cheese, yogurt and coffee with a little red sugar heart attached to the rim of the cup! Rooms were small like most in Europe, but with plenty of room and immaculate. It was very nice to have a bathrobe and slippers in the modern bathroom as well. Many excellent restaurants close by and just a few blocks from the beautiful Luxembourg Gardens and St Germaine.
