“Perfect hotel for first trip to Paris”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2010

We were so happy we chose this hotel for our first visit to Paris. The location could not have been better for us. We walked everywhere! When we needed to take the metro, the Odeon station was just down the street. The area is quite lively, with many boutiques, pharmacies, restaurants and bars. There was a definite "college" vibe to the neighborhood, with lots of students from local colleges hanging out at the cafes and strolling in the street, particularly at night. Be sure to look for the alley that runs behind the hotel -Cour du Commerce Saint Andre- it reminded me of Diagon Alley from Harry Potter books. It was easy to find a full meal or a bite to eat just steps away from the hotel. We contacted the hotel by email a few days before the trip and asked if they could arrange a shuttle from the airport. They did this in a prompt, friendly manner (using English). When we arrived at CDG airport, we had a number to call so our driver would meet us. He probably had to wait for us, since we were so confused by the airport. The van took us straight to the hotel for around 40 euros. Near the end of the week, the hotel arranged for a shuttle to pick us up and take us & some other guests back. The desk staff were also helpful in making restaurant reservations for us. We were given a wonderful room on the top floor with a view of Notre Dame cathedral. Who could ask for more? OK, being an American, I guess we could ask for more... in this case, more towels in the bathroom. We requested and received them when we asked. I believe this is a European thing? Small bars of soap and a shampoo/bath gel are provided, as is a shower cap and shoe buff. The bathtub was very deep and there were no "grab bars" as in American hotels, so someone with bad knees or the elderly would struggle getting in and out - at least in our room. That would be something to look into when you book. The bed was comfortable, sheets clean and pressed, blankets warm. The room was so warm we turned off the heat and left the window cracked. The breakfast was breads, sandwich meats & cheese, cereal, juice, yogurt, fruit cocktail. The coffee was good and strong. A nice woman working the dining area was quick to provide coffee when you sat down. My husband brought me coffee to our room twice and she helpfully prepared a small tray for him to carry. It was lovely! Lastly, there was free wi-fi, which we were able to use all week. Can't wait to go back!

After looking at so many options in Paris - including Hotels, B&Bs and Apartments, we decided on the Left Bank as it provided the best of location and price competitiveness. We found the location is indeed fabulous - close to many excellent restaurants and shops, the Metro, and a number of tourist must-sees. All staff were very helpful - front desk, service and breakfast room. The breakfasts are a great way to start a day in Paris. The front desk gladly allowed us to leave our luggage long before we were due to check in, and were most helpful on lots of other things touristique.

From start to finish our whole experience went just as we'd hoped. Relaxed, informal and efficient greeting. Uniquely decorated rooms and spotlessly clean. Generous continental breakfast. Location excellent with plenty of life but not too much noise. Easy access to prime sites. Helpful and tolerant staff.

You couldn't get a better 3 star property. Only a short stroll from the Metro (Odeon), short walk to the Seine and Notre Dame. The hotel is cosy, with a real French flavour - so fitting on our visit to Paris. The service was brilliant and we were fortunate to get a beautifully appointed room with views to the Notre Dame.

Hotel Left Bank is as the name says situated on the left bank of Seine, close to Notre Dame and only some steps from Odeon. This hotel offers cosy surrounding in a central position and in the heart of the Latin quarter. The service is kind and warm. The hotel is neat and nicely decorated. Our room was very quiet facing the inside court. The room is equiped with a practical good bathroom and free wireless internet connection. The breakfast table is good and is offered daily till 11am allowing a nice morning rest. Our room was rather small but sufficient for our couple for the three night stay.
We would be happy to return to this friendly place.

My husband & I stayed at this property for 5 nights in October 2010. Our first visit to Paris and we found the hotel to be in a wonderful location. Just 1/2 block from Metro and in the midst of restaurants, bars, shopping and several major tourist attractions.,

The front desk staff was very helpful and spoke English. They were always willing to help with calling taxis, restaurant rercommendations and even helping with booking a boat trip on the Seine.

With the dollar so weak against the Euro, we thought we got good value. The included breakfast was a good way to begin the day without having to think about stopping. The free Wi Fi also was quite beneficial. All in all a good value.

A small, but clean room with a comfortable bed and a clean, new full bathroom in a great location (two minute walk from the Odeon Metro station and right in the middle of St. Germain/Latin Quarter districts) made this a wonderful, value hotel for us in Paris. The front desk staff were a pleasure to deal with. Always courteous, friendly and helpful. Nice breakfast.. Easy walking distance to Ile de la cite, Louvre and many other Paris locations ... and easy Metro access for any others. We were in a 5th floor room facing the street. No problem whatsoever with noise at night. Lower floors might be a little noisy with windows open as folks are on street late into the night here, but that's part of the Paris atmosphere! We highly recommend this area of Paris to stay in and the Hotel Left Bank was a great choice!
