“Small and charming”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2012

I stayed here with my husband while he attended a conference. It is a small hotel with friendly staff. Our room, on the fourth floor, was tiny so we had to arrange our belongings very carefully in the armoire. There was no desk, only a drop leaf table in the corner, and when the leaf was up there was no room to walk around the bed. (We needed the table for a computer.) The bed was hard. The bathroom was fine except for one thing: the shower had a half wall and no curtain or door, so we had to be careful not to splash water on the floor. The location of this hotel is fantastic--walking distance to the RER/métro (the RER goes all the way to CDG Airport), the Jardin du Luxembourg, the Panthéon, the Sorbonne, and almost all the Left Bank neighborhoods. I thought it would be quiet because it's located on a dead end street but there are echoes from the buildings across the street, and there was considerable partying going on several nights. We had to leave the window open because there was no A/C and it was rather hot some nights. The bed had only a sheet and down comforter--too hot for summer! Early in the morning there were trucks backing up into the street and their beeping woke us up. Breakfast, in a charmingly decorated basement room, was good with plenty of variety, although it costs extra. All in all, this hotel has its ups and downs.

Room Tip: If there's a room in the back it might be quieter. Otherwise, choose a high floor for air circul...

My room was downright tacky and not very clean. No way to use the bathtub as the plugger was missing . If you want to use the internet, you have to buy a couppn - no possibility to Skype. I found a great hotel less than a 5 minute walk away with free WIFI gor 20€ more. I could not recommend this place to anyone I care about!

My partner and I stayed for two nights in June for my birthday. This was my first trip to Paris and I was a bit surprised by the price of hotels! So we decided to pay a bit more and were really hoping it was nice. The hotel turned out to be really lovely with only a few minor faults.

It on a quiet dead end street less than 5mins walk to the metro - on the RER line that goes to CDG airport so really easy to get to. The neighbourhood is lovely with lots of cafes, small grocery shops and only a couple of minutes walk to the Pantheon which was very impressive. It only took 15 mins to walk to Notre Dame and it is so central we walked everywhere.

Our room was very small but I think this is pretty standard for this price range. It was very nicely decorated with a big comfortable bed and lovely crisp bed linen. The bathroom was small but well lit and great shower. We had a room looking onto the street with big doors out onto a lovely balcony.

The reason I have given it 4 is the air conditioning didn't seem very effective; it wasn’t even that warm but we had to sleep with the windows open on the second night. Also our minibar wasn’t remotely cold. We weren’t planning to drink anything from it but I would have liked to keep water in there. However, as we didn’t report either of these things I can’t really complain too much! Also a slightly shabby/hanging down light fitting, shower water goes all over the bathroom floor and the design of the plugs was intensely annoying as neither the sink nor the bath drained well – this may just be standard on the continent though. But these were only minor things.

We didn't have breakfast or use the sauna so I can’t comment on these. All in all a lovely hotel with stylish decor, big comfortable bed, high quality linen and towels and fantastic location. I would happily recommend this to a friend.

Great location near the Luxembourg Gardens. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful, made some nice restaurant recommendations. The rooms were nice and the bed was comfortable. The hotel is on a side street, so it is quiet. Reasonable price for this more expensive neighborhood of Paris.

Few close to the train station and the gardens. Lovely place with wonderful helpful staff that spoke English and helped with my little bit of French. The rooms are small which from what I hear is the norm for this price range. This hotel from what the staff tells me used to be a hotel many years back and the rooms now have their own bath in each. The bed was so close to the wall that it is good that I am not a large person. Also the two twin beds were so close to each other that you could not pull them much apart. The linens were nice and nice size bath with no shower curtain. That seems to be normal in Europe but I just don't understand why because water always gets on the floor. There was nice bath soaps but no lotion. The AC was not working on the hotest day of the year in May. I don't think it really works to be honest so we opened the window and suffered till it cooled off in the evening. There are tons of cafe's in the area with nice food and you can do lots of shopping just down the street.

Room Tip: the rooms are small...that's all there is to it.

This lovely property has everything you want in Paris hotel. We stayed here a few years ago and returned in April. We asked for and got a room that faces the Jardin. You can't really see the Jardin, but you face outside and into the trees. THis room was smaller than the one we had last time, but it was fine. Big bathroom with shower and large tub. Comfortable beds and linens. Best of all the staff-- particularly Christian and the woman, I believe manages or owns the hotel, are incredibly helpful. Excellent recommendations and assistance. The night desk woman is not as on her game, but the others were terrific. There's a lovely restaurant within walking distance too-- La Maison Du Jardin and you will need reservations. Finally, the location is perfect. Middle of the left bank within walking distance to everything. We booked online through the hotel in advance and got better pricing.

We visited for 3 days end december including new years. The hotel is located in a dead end street so you can get a good nights sleep, very little street noise. Close to shops, bakery etc and the park. Easy to cycle to the city with the velib bikes (there is a parking station at the end of the street), it only takes around 15 minutes to cycle down to the river (although its down hill there, and uphill back to the hotel at the end of the day!). Although an old hotel, and not that recently refurbished (older fittings) it is very clean! The room was small, a little difficult to move around once you have your suitcases inside. But it has all you need. Comfortable beds, fresh clean linen every day. Very friendly helpful reception staff. We didn't have breakfast at the hotel so can't comment on this. Also close to a Vincie parking so you can park your car safely (was around Euro 30 per day). Can definitely recommend it for a short stay in Paris.
