“Nice small Hotel close to Paris Centre”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013

It is a nice small Hotel which I recommend as a base for many tours inside Paris. Its position close to Sorbonne, to Boulevard StGermain, to Notre Dame make it better than many others. Personnel are at your disposal and very gentle.

The location of the hotel is worth the stay. Close to everything and not far from the Metro, this is a gem. The staff were very helpful and I was able to change my room with no problem. The breakfast was good. Overall, the hotel is very clean and lovely. The beds were extremely comfortable. I would recommend this hotel to family and friends and would definitely return.

We were a little disappointed in this hotel. The location was very good but our room was right across from a bar and the noise kept us awake -- especially the motorcycles and people talking. We were exhausted after a very long flight but could not get to sleep because of the noise. We were there for 3 nights. Our breakfast was included and the first 2 mornings, everything was fine. On the 3rd morning, nothing was ready on time so we had to make do with what was because we had a train to catch. I told the lady at the desk about the noise and she looked at me like she had never heard that complaint before.

Stayed 3 nights here in September 2011. This hotel is located on a quiet street next to a small movie theater in the Latin Quarters. Our room was tiny for two people once you add luggage with an even tinier bathroom (as I'm guessing is common in Paris) but clean, comfortable and perfect for our needs since we weren't there to spend much time in the hotel. Couldn't have been happier with the location since we were walking distance to most of the sites but away from the touristy crowds. The train station is also only a couple of blocks away. We had most of our meals at different cafes we came across walking around in the area and found the best and reasonably priced food there.

Spent 4 nights in this little hotel and was most of all very pleased with its location on a quiet side street to busy Boulevard St Michel. The hotel itself does not have a restaurant, but within one block, at the ends of the street there were several nice cafes and restaurants and around three blocks away you could find the tourist restaurant area Quartier Latin. Although travelling alone I got a small double room, which was clean and nicely decorated, so I was quite satisfied. On the other hand, for two persons this room would have felt cramped, especially if staying several nights. Although the breakfast buffet did not contain what a British or German visitor might expect (sausages, scrambled eggs etc), it did contain enough to give you a good start on the day and it was very attractively arranged. Yes, the whole breakfast room was like a quiet oasis, where it was a treat to eat your breakfast, have an extra cup of coffee and read the morning paper. To have breakfast in quiet surroundings is also important for getting a good start on the day.

Our experience was tinged slightly by a very unwelcoming receptionist, and the fact that our room was not serviced after our first night (of two). But we'd stay there again as it was a lovely dual-aspect room (top floor) and super-convenient location. We chose not to have hotel breakfast, there are numerous cafes within seconds' walk offering somewhat cheaper options.
