“Nice hotel next to the Sorbonne”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

Just returned from Paris, and stayed at Hotel Select for 8 nights. Booked a standard room which was small but what one would expect in Paris. Standard room comes with a shower / bath which is ackward for anyone wishing to take a standup shower or lay in the tub as it is very small. Initally we were placed on the 1st floor and found it too noisy due to the proximity to the stairwell and "really small" 3 person elevator just outside our door. We requested a move and were placed on the 3rd floor overlooking the courtyard, which was better. The staff were very accomodating, friendly and helpful. Rooms are clean and comfortable. There is a restaurant and bar in the hotel but we opted to frequent the many bistros, tabac and other food choices in the neighbourhood. Wifi reception was sometimes poor and english channel options are very limited. Bus and metro access are very close. It's only a 7 Euro cab ride from Garde du Nord. The hotel we have stayed at in the past was not available and found Select Hotel to be a good option to our usual choice.

Stayed at this Hotel last week and consider it to be a good option in the area. It is located right in the Place de Sorbonne, which means that the area is filled with the life of the university, students and professors. The rooms are small, as is usual in Paris, but very well kept, modern, comfortable and clean. The only thing is that the walls are very thin and you can hear all the noise from the neighbours, when they would wake up ext.

We stayed in a few Paris hotels in Sept 2012 and this was the most modern, cleanest, smartest, best service (though perhaps not friendliest, a small family-run hotel in Rue des Ecoles wins that prize), most thoughtfully & stylishly designed, and best located. Also it was more expensive than others though. However, I'd definately recommend for a few nights near the university. Good cafe next door too!

Beautiful room with great view onto Place de la Sorbonne. Very helpful staff who accomodated our disability needs (mobility scooter that had to be stored on the ground level and battery charged). Very good breakfast. We'll be back.

Room Tip: The larger rooms are nicer

I stayed few nights here on a city vacation and found the Select Hotel compact, very well located and clean. The service was very friendly and breakfast sufficient - though some fruits would be appreciated. Our room was quite small but worked just fine for us. The location at the Place de la Sorbonne was quite charming and one could easily take a walk to several places to see (Notre Dame etc.).
