“Perfect location for exploring Paris”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

We stayed at the hotel for three nights. The location is perfect for exploring Paris and the most famous sights. If you arrive from the airports by train (recommended), it's a 3 min walk from the station to the hotel.

Hotel-staff are very friendly, service-minded and speak english very well. Everything is clean and in perfect order. Nice rooms (not the world's largest), but over all this is a hotel worth staying at! My next time in Paris will be in the same hotel :-)

Is a Good hotel. The rooms are comfortable, the hall is poor, not at the level of 4 stars. Small corridoors . very "cold" de design in the Common areas. The service at the recepiton it is also essential. Considering the standard is too expensive.

We booked 2 triple rooms for a group of 6 ladies on a weekend away. The beds were comfortable and the bathrooms a good size for Paris hotels (usually tiny). The hotel is a short walk from the RER Luxembourg station.. only 3 stops from Gare de Nord, and is well situated opposite The Sorbonne and for walking to the many sights in the area and near the Metro. Good restaurant Balzar a few mins walk away well worth a visit. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We would definitely return to this hotel. Highly recommended.

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.
