“First time to Paris”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014

This was our first trip to Paris, and my wife picked out this gem to stay at.

The room had a lot of things going for it, including dark shades (if you're out on the town until the wee hours of the morning and want to sleep in, you'll appreciate this), a very comfortable bed, adequate air conditioning, a safe neighborhood and absolutely easy transit from the RER or Metro to the hotel - it's 2 blocks maximum.

You DO NOT NEED A RENTAL CAR in Paris - in fact, parking is very hard to come by (as evidenced by the very creative way people parked their vehicles there). If you are reasonably physically fit, you can make it to the Metro or RER stations, and get anywhere you need to go. We were able to hop the RER from the airport and basically get to within 2 blocks of our hotel at the most, and then take the same or other stops to ride the RER or Metro to where ever in Paris we wanted to go, and boy, did we go places in Paris. We were averaging 10 miles of walking a day.

If you are in good shape, you can literally walk to see Notre Dame, the Left and Right Banks of the Seine, and even the Lourve. We walked all over Paris.

The neighborhood is very clean and safe apart from the occasional dog owner who doesn't clean up after their mutt. The hotel has good security - the front door needs your key card to enter, as does your room door. The hotel is within easy walking distance of over 50 restaurants, and I'm probably underestimating that. We didn't eat at the same place twice in our stay.

We were able to sleep during some exciting World Cup 2014 games being shown in the Irish pub downstairs, but we were on the third floor. I think the second floor would be challenging.

The rooms were very quiet - we didn't really hear our neighbors. You'll want to use your shears at least in the rooms - this is a typical narrow Paris street, and you look directly into apartments across the street, and vice versa.

There were two observations that weren't great - the shower (only, no tub) drain ran slow, and the air vent in the bathroom was plugged solid with lint. Otherwise, everything was great.

The double room we had came with a TV (which included some pretty wild French programming with strong sexual themes and frontal nudity- beware if you are prudish!) and a mini fridge. We didn't discover it until later, but there was also a cook top hidden under the counter the mini fridge is under, which included a sink and cook top - you lift the counter up to access it.

All in all, it was a great trip to Paris, and the room and it's "location, location, location" made it all the more better.

The elevator was a trick - it was a three person, standing side by side, otherwise, you're on the spiral staircase - you might as well get used to them, they are in most of the museums and tourist spots.

Room Tip: If there are high profile sporting events (soccer, rugby), the bar downstairs on the first floor can...

First stayed here 8 years ago. Fabulous location, within walking distance to Notre Dame, Louvre, Cluny, Metro and Seine. Nice pub/restaurants in the area .A bit noisy on the weekends but easily disguised. Staff was outstanding and very responsive to our requests -- Aina is wonderful! My husband got a kick out of the tiny elevator. Room good sized by paris standards.

We recentley stayed here and it was a fantastic Choice. Prior to arrival the staff was Incredibly helpful in helping us plan out trip and reserve our room. The location is perfect , Steps away from St Michel Metro station that connected us to everywhere in the city we wanted to go and a quick trip to and from CDG Airport. There is no shortage of great restaurants and bakeries near by. The suite was perfect for us. I would Highly reccomend this hotel to anyone looking for a Beautiful and Convient Hotel.

Room Tip: Higher Floors will reduce some of the evening noise from the cafe's nearby

Great location. Steps from Isle de la Cite, Notre Dame, Isle de St Louis and in the heart of the Latin Quarter. Great shopping and night life. Staff was very helpful and polite. The suite was spacious and well appointed. My second visit and would go back.
