“Wonderful!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2008

The Citadines was a great hotel; the location was fabulous! Next to cool restaurants, Seine, Notre Dame and Louvre.
The room was really cool--modern and clean. I wish we could have stayed longer at the Citadines.

After having a dreadful stay at the Citadines Trafalgar Square, we were very apprehensive about staying here. However the contrast between the 2 hotels could not have been greater. The staff were extremely friendly and courteous, the room (1 bedroom apartment) was modern and well appointed. The location is superb, and access to all of Paris attractions are within walking distance. We will recommend this hotel to friends.

My husband and I stayed at the Citadines St Germain for 4 nights in October 2008. The apartments are located opposite the Seine River about 50 meters down the road from Pont Neuf.
We were in apartment 1609 and had glimpes of Notre Dame Cathedral. The studio apartment was clean and contained a bar fridge (empty), dishwasher, microwave, kettle, telephone, free internet access in the rooms. The TV shows about 12 channels and the only one you will get in english will be CNN. The bathroom has a shower/bath, hairdryer and the usual toiletries. The sofa bed was surprisingly comfortable. The rooms are not cleaned daily. Downstairs in the reception area there are free tea and coffee making facilites and computers with free internet access. Breakfast is available every morning, just write your room number on the sheet in the kitchen areas and serve yourself. The Reception staff speak english fairly well and are friendly and helpful. For food turn left when you head out of the hotel and turn left again at the lights for Pont Neuf. You will find a number of cafes, trattorias, bars etc. Avoid the little deli on the left hand side of the road that does not have prices on stock as the price tends to change depending on how well you speak french. Alternatively, take a right when you leave the hotel and walk down to the Great Canadian Pub. Good food, friendly atmosphere and the staff speak english reasonably well.
The apartments are about a10-15 minute walk from the Lourve.

  • Liked — Location, price
  • Disliked — Once you head away from the reception area and down to the laundry, the staff do not speak english at all

My husband and I stayed at the Citadines for 6 nights in late April and had a fantastic stay! We had a large studio with a comfortable Queen-sized murphy bed, which we never bothered closing, since the room was large enough. The bathroom was very large, even by North American standards, with bath/shower combo, lots of storage and a towel warmer. The room was well-decorated with modern furnishings including 2 comfortable chairs, a large desk, a flat-screen TV, a stereo and cooking area with brand new appliances. The bonus for us was a very large balcony overlooking an inner courtyard, where we could enjoy a glass of wine. It was a very quiet room - not only because of the courtyard, but we never heard other guests either. The location in Paris could not have been better, on the Seine at Pont Neuf - a few minutes' walk to the Louvre, Notre Dame, Musee d'Orsay, Quartier Latin and so on... The hotel was clean and the staff were hospitable and helpful. Needless to say, we will stay again and ask for the same style of studio room!

After reading the reviews on TripAdvisor I decided to book this for our two night stay before heading off to Italy. Having previously stayed in an apartment in the Marais which required a key collection from an address miles away, I wanted apartment facilities in a hotel environment and this fitted the bill perfectly.
The studio is small but perfectly formed (and you have to be the Incredible Hulk to get the sofa bed pulled out).
The kitchen is very well equipped, kettle, toaster, microwave, dishwasher etc, plenty of cupboard space for longer stays, iron and board in wardrobe in lobby area.
Decent bathroom with bath (heaven!) and shower over. Hairdryer with a nozzle that will actually dry your hair without blowing it all over the place like those public baths type ones.
Little desk area with plenty of power points and a cable for free high speed internet access - this was really good as so many places charge.
I really enjoyed my stay here and could quite happily have stayed longer, although my husband found the space a little restricted with the sofa bed pulled out.
Grat location, just opposite Pont Neuf, around the corner from Place Saint-Michel. We found a great little Italian restaurant on the Rue De L'Hirondelle, and great bars on the Rue Mazarine/Rue De Buci.
Definitely recommend it.

  • Liked — Well equipped, comfortable, great location.
  • Disliked — Not much space with sofabed out.

wonderful hotel,wonderful staff, wonderful city, nice room, nice a/c, the bed are confortable for a sofa bed. nice location all around. more infos about the neighbourhood, you have a laundrymat just before the hotel on the side street,and a few minutes walk a touring guide tour "france tourime". you have a supermarket "champion" on the buci street just behind the hotel (about 5 minutes walk), and you have a boat tour in the river seine on the pont neuf just in front of the hotel. be careful for pickpocket in the metro, i saw one in action in metro st-michel. and ask for the map street at the front desk. will stay there again, have a good trip.
