As we got ff the taxi at this hotel we noticed four stars tacked on the wall ...that was probably the only disappointment - this hotel was nothing like other 4 star places in the rest of the world !
The location is really nice -, a quiet, not touristy street next to the Sorbonne within a five/ ten minute walk of the Latin Quarter, Pantheon, Luxembourg gardens and Boulevards Saint Michel ab and Saint Germaine, Walk a bit longer and you can get to Notre Dam, the Louvre and the Musee d Orsay
Check in was efficient, (as was check out) and we were soon in the triple room which was as big as a normal double room. We had booked a triple because the complimentary breakfast and WiFi more than made up for the difference in price over the double).
Adequately furnished clean room and bathroom , Good air conditioning, TV (sadly hardly any programs in English), coffee/ tea making facility, efficient internet ...unfortunately soap and shampoo were the only toiletries we could find in the bathroom with the much needed moisturizer not on offer.
They serve a good breakfast; the standard fare you can expect in a good European hotel (fortunately not the juice, croissant and coffee some hotels consider "breakfast !).
The Hotel has one restaurant but there are plenty of places to eat and drink in the vicinity, with those in the Place Sorbonne, a two minute walk being the closest. Five minutes will take you a variety of restaurants, bistros, bars and fast food joints on Saint Michelle. Ten minutes will get you to Rue de la Harpe and the two roads branching off it. This area is packed with small and inexpensive eateries serving French, Italian, Greek, Indo Chinese, Indian and what have you at reasonable prices.
The people at reception, Thomas and Marianne and the two others, speak good English and are very helpful in helping you find your way around Paris and were able to accommodate most of our demands including a late check out..
On balance this is a good place to stay...
