“Very Good Service, location and value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

We stayed the first week of September 2012. This was our fourth trip to Paris and our fifth different hotel. We found the location outstanding, right on the line from CDG airport. Walking distance to many of the must see sights. Very handy for arrival and departure. We recieved a free upgrade to a balcony suite on our arrival. Room including bathroom was a little small (though not by Paris standards) but spotless. Service was friendly and helpful. We also thought the price was very reasonable compared with other similar hotels in the area and others we have stayed at in Paris. We would highly reccomend and if returning to Paris this would be our first choice.

Absolutely amazing hotel in the heart of the Latin Quarter!

It was about 2 blocks from Notre Dame, 1 from the Seine and around the corner from the St Michele metro station. Overall incredible location! The hotel was quaint, rooms were a little small but that's typical for Europe. It was extremely clean, everyone was so nice to us (our fave being Pierre he was so helpful!) and provided great recommendations. They also have a cat on site that is super cute.

The hotel location was perfect for us, we walked every where and where we couldn't we just jumped on the metro which is very easy to use. There was tons of shopping in the area and great restaurants. It was an active area with a younger crowd but the hotel is located on a quiet street. Overall, incredible experience visiting Paris and hotel was perfect. Thank you to everyone at the Hotel Europe Saint Severin that made our trip so memorable :)

I spent one night on my own for business, bedroom was small but clean, not noisy, shower was excellent and staff very very nice.

I will go again 100%. It's a good address to keep in mind when you don't want to have surprises

Room Tip: I was first floor, thought would be very noisy and was not at all

In July this year my husband and I spent a week in Paris on holiday. It was my husband's first trip to Paris so the planning was left up to me. I needed a cental, affordable, authentic and comfortable hotel and I am really pleased to have discovered the Hotel Europe St Severin while browsing Tripadvisor.

We came in to Paris by train and left by plane - reaching the hotel via either means is very simple with little or no transfer of Metro lines needed. There are 3 metro entrances in the immediate vicinity and a ton of great restaurants in very easy walking distance to the hotel. The walk around the hotel is great in amost every direction and my personal favourite sites - Notre Dame and La Sainte Chapelle are in close proximity.

We found a great creperie around the corner, a fabulous bakery across the street and lots of lovely breakfast places dotted around us.
The hotel itself was clean, the room was small (but this is the norm in Paris) but the staff were friendly and helpful.

When visiting a city like Paris, I feel its better the spend your money on the city itself - eating, touring and taking in the lifestyle. The location and price of the hotel allowed us the space to do just that!

I've never stayed in Paris before, so this was new and a great experience. The front desk staff is AWESOME. They are like concierge. I normally cannot afford that type of service, so this was pleasant. They tell you streets they know, restaurants they like, tips, etc. Wonderful!

The cleaning staff are also fabulous. I am picky about clean floors. sinks, towels, tables, etc. They pay attention to detail here. But it's still lived-in so if there's something you don't like, tell them.

And the cute little cat, Isis, is a bonus. He is an ambassador of leisure. :) I loved my stay here and will come back.

We loved everything about this hotel, with the exception of the price.

We had a two level suite (for three) on the 6th floor with a spectacular rooftop view of the city (this room was are only choice for three people). It was fantastic.

We were surrounded by a plethora of restaurants and cafes and within walking distance of so many Paris highlights.

A splurge for sure, but well worth it... At least once.

Dear Mledoux,

Thank you for taking your time to write about our hotel on Tripadvisor.

We are glad to hear that you liked our Deluxe suite on the 6th floor. This room is for two or three people as it has one double bed and one single bed. For the next time you can also book the Superior triple room for three people, this room is less expensive then the Deluxe suite.

We hope to have the chance to welcome you back soon again.

Best regards,
Anna

We stayed four nights. We had a room for three because our adult daughter visiting from U.S. traveled with us. We currently live in Germany and based on our experiences in other European hotels, including a previous say in Paris, the room was much larger than expected. The room was very clean, beds comfortable, had a shower/tub combo. Free wi-fi! The staff was extremely friendly and helpful - the first day the front desk staff member helped us with a train ticket problem since our French was lacking. Would definitely stay here again.
