We've just returned home from our 3 night stay in this lovely hotel. Booked to celebrate a special anniversary we were looking for somewhere small, special and memorable. We were not disappointed.
We stayed in Room 20 - Francois Rabelais, one of the smaller "apartments". Simply but elegantly decorated, the main focal point was a four poster bed which we were not expecting! It was really quite spacious with two generous wardrobes and little kitchen area. The view from the very tall elegant front window was very pleasant and, had the weather been warmer, we could imagine that sitting having breakfast on the little balcony would be a lovely experience.
Unusually, the view from the (also very tall) windows in the bathroom was also good, overlooking a tiny courtyard at the back of the building.
The staff were all very pleasant and helpful.
The location was perfect for us too. Although the hotel is located quietly at the end of a little cul de sac overlooking a little park, within a few steps you are in the midst of useful shops and loads of restaurants ... also Notre Dame, the Pantheon and river walks. Being so close to the Sorbonne, the area is young and lively but nobody made us feel out of place!
Breakfast is traditionally French and costs 8 euros each. There were cereals to choose from and a good basket of bread, croissants, pain au chocolat and pain au raisin to have with butter and selection of jams. If we had to find fault with anything at all during our stay it would only be that there is a limit to the amount of "bread" that most of us want to eat at breakfast time. So, after our first breakfast, we shopped at a very local boulangerie and had just the one croissant and coffee in our room. This was also a good way to get out and about quickly.
We feel we were very lucky to have stayed at this lovely hotel. We booked our stay directly with the hotel, taking advantage of their special winter rates and would advise that you give their own website a look before booking with the other agencies. We see that there are other good deals on there now.
Room 20 - Francois Rabelais - is on the 2nd floor. It was quiet at the weekend, very romantic and...
