“Charming hotel in Saint Germaine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

This boutique hotel is quiet and located in a nice, safe neighborhood—Saint Germaine—which is near Notre Dame and has lots of charming shops and brasseries. The friendly concierges speak English and the wireless internet is pretty good. One downside: we did not have hot water most mornings so I would recommend getting up early or showering at night. Overall, though, I would certainly stay here again if I come back to Paris.

Excellent value and great location. The front desk was extremely helpful and very friendly. They were great recommending restaurants. Made our trip more enjoyable. They spoke excellent English and helped with reservations.

We have just spend 5 nights in this hotel. The area is safe, and very close to the city center near Notre Dame. The breakfast was very good but so basic just toast, 2 types of cold cuts and cereal. The staff of the front desk knows English very well. The hotel is 5 minutes walk from the underground and 15 minutes from the RER if you are coming from the airport or going to euro disney. I book the hotel with an offer that was 515 euro for 5 nights but normal rate per night are 195 euro. So ask for an offer before you book. If we will go to Paris again we will stay in this hotel if we will have the offer again.

We have just spent 2 nights in the hotel. The rooms were clean and tidy, the breakfast was very good although a little steep at $11 for cereal & toast. The staff were very friendly and informative. Would definitely stay here again

Room Tip: upgrade to a superior room

We stayed in October 2012, Hotel's facilities are really small (but is very common in Paris) the room was nice and bathroom super shinny, LCD TV, Small Fridge with Sodas/Treats, Small Closet, nightstand.
Great Location, 6 blocks from Notre Dame, 2 blocks from Subway (you can go anywhere with the Subway). 8 blocks from Latin Quarter..
Super Nice Staff
There is a extra fee if you want to have breakfast in the Hotel, but being Paris you can have breakfast anywhere.
I would Recommend it.

The location of this place is what makes it worthwhile, being within 5 mins walk from a couple of metro stops.

Our twin room actually had a lingering smell of weed but after keeping the windows open for a couple of hours on the first day, it was ok. Apart from this, the room was adequately cleaned daily and nice hot showers. I found the bed comfortable. The rooms/bathrooms were pretty small, my 5'10" brother stated he felt like a giant in the bath! Oh, I am a heavy sleeper but I was informed by other members of my party that the bells opposite the hotel ring out at about 8am, which they found slightly frustrating!

On check out, we left our luggage in the storage room. Unfortunately there was a leak and my suitcase got slightly wet. I didn't have time to complain, I just mentioned it to them then run out of the door to catch the Eurostar!

Overall, reasonable price for Paris with the location being its plus point!
