“perfect for a short trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2010

Located a stones throw from Notre Dame. Our rooms was ample in size for the location and spotlessly clean, as was the bathroom. Beds were made up daily and towels replaced. The buffet breakfast was well worth the €12 extra charge and served by friendly lady in a relaxed atmosphere. This was my third trip to Paris and I will definitely stay here again. The only negative comment I have was the absence tea/coffee making facilities in the room, although it didn't bother me personally my traveling companion missed it. I'd be delighted to recommendi Hotel Abbatial to anyone.

Clean, simple hotel. Rooms small but with all mod cons. and very comfortable. The breakfast is adequate with cereal, rolls and bread, cheese and jams. Also scrambled eggs. The staff is friendly and helpful. The location couldn't be better as you turn the corner you see Notre Dam. The lift was not working whilst we were there which was a big minus but I would go back there again.

For years we have stayed in a friend's apartment near the Hotel Abbatial Saint Germain. We always noticed this hotel as we walked to and from the apartment along Boulevard Saint Germain. When our friends moved, we started staying at the Hotel Abbatial since we liked this area of Paris. This hotel is the greatest: Clean, airy, well maintained, with a very courteous and experienced staff. The optional petit breakfast is anything but petit and well worth the extra Euros. A great way to start the day before hitting the streets and sights of Paris. Try it. You will not be disappointed!

Very nice Hotel, Rooms are clean, Air Conditioning is Excellent, Breakfast is OK for French breakfast even better than OK.
Room size for the small rooms is the standard for Paris (small) but OK the higher level the rooms are great. Location is incredible you can’t ask for a lot better Metro 2 minutes away, Notredam 3 minutes away, Rue Rivoly and Hotel the Ville 7 minutes away, Marco at the front desk is a great service provider and was helpful with any and all our needs.

Very recommended and will go there again, we traveled as a family 2+2.

This great little hotel has exceeded my expectations! We stayed in a name brand more expensive 4-star hotel for two nights before this one (because we were with a tour group and that was the assigned hotel), Hotel Abbatial is better managed, in a better location, and overall a better value.

We stayed on the 2nd floor, Room 23, facing the main street. The room size is small, not much spare floor space but it's perfectly adequate for two people. The bathroom is modern and appears new. Housekeeing does a very good job. I'm picky on cleaniness and this hotel is very clean. I vaguely sense some Japanese inspired influence here and there. Staff speak excellent English. Courteous and helpful. The hotel has free wi-fi. Everywhere we stayed in Europe, we had to pay extra for internet access (typically 10-20 euro for one day access).

It's easy to go from the hotel to CDG. We took the shuttle arranged by the hotel. 17 euro per person. If you want to use the train you can, we just didn't feel like dragging our luggage.

The hotel is located near Metro stop Maubert-Mutualité on line 10. The reception gave us a tourist map upon arrival. The Metro is very easy to use. However, we mainly walked. The best feature of the hotel is its location. It's very close to Notre Dame and Seine. We also walked to Louvre. Basically many major sights along the Seine River you can walk to within 20 minutes or so. The hotel is also very close to Pantheon and Sorbonne in the other direction. You can also walk to shopping in St. Germain (6th). I did my shopping at the Louis Vuitton store there.

There are tons of restaurants, cafes, and food stalls nearby. Excellent food at reasonable prices. Near Effel Tower we saw 7 euro sugar crepes. The same crepe (but bigger and better made) in the Latin Quarter (near the hotel) costs 1.5 euro.

If I have to pick on something. I would say that we did hear street sounds. It doesn't bother us, but if you are a light sleeper, you may want to request a room not facing the street, or a room on a higher floor.

Overall, this hotel is an excellent value. Highly recommend!

We stayed in this hotel for one night in august. First of all it is very clean and the staff is friendly. The room size depends on the room number (15 is a little bit smaller than the rest, but more than enough). The bathrooms are also nice and new. It is a very close walk to notre dame and the next metro station. We also had the breakfast for 12€. There are not so many different things, but all you need and the quality is excellent. We think it is worth 12€.
We booked online (around 3 months before) and paid only half the price given at the front desk.

I just spent three nights at this hotel. The room was much nicer than I expected. It was very clean and modern. It was small, but perfectly standard as hotel rooms go in Paris. The hotel is located just minutes from the Latin Quarter, Notre Dame and the metro. I highly recommend this hotel.
