“Location!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2014

This is very good choice for those who are looking for a place to crush for a night and then get back to sightseeing. The location is great. It is located in Latin quarter, very close to Luxembourg garden and Pantheon, and working distance from Notre Dame de Paris. Importantly, it is very close to RER station (line B), meaning that you can get there straight from CDG airport, and can get to the door in less than five minutes even with heavy luggage. There are plenty cafés and restaurants around, several are in the same building, and there is a crazy place near Saint Severin with seemingly hundreds of restaurants and cafés of different kinds. Breakfast in the hotel is very decent. Our room was pretty clean, bed was very decent, and the room had everything necessary (for two star hotel room) except space. The room was not small - it was tiny, and probably smaller than you can imagine! If you have more than one piece of luggage it may be a problem. Staff is friendly. There is shuttle service to airports, and you can order a shuttle through the hotel. Surprisingly, the place is quiet. wifi works. Overall, it served the purpose for us well although lack of space was somewhat inconvenient.

The location of this hotel, around the corner from Luxembourg station and close to the Pantheon and the Sorbonne, is excellent, but as a place to stay it leaves much to be desired. Even for a short stay - ours was for two nights - it is nice to have somewhere to put clothes, but our room had no wardrobe and no doors. Worse, there were no coat hooks - not even one on the back of the door. The only hook was one on the back of the bathroom door. As for the bathroom, it was tiny. And although the shower had been equipped with fancy LED lights, the shower head attachment was cheap plastic and broken - so the shower head had to be held. It was also difficult to wash and shave in the basin as there was a large fixed central tap well placed to hit you in the face. Breakfast was adequate, though served by a woman whose charm suggested she might have been chosen to play the part of a janitor in an hotel behind the old Iron Curtain.
Paris may be expensive, but the bill for two nights seemed excessive in view of the above.

Hotel du Bresil absolutely exceeded our expectations! I mean, for such a SMALL price that we paid, in such super CONVENIENT location - it was just perfect! Yes, elevator is microscopic and rooms are so as well. But honestly - do I come to Paris to stay in the room (or elevator?)? :) Everything was perfect - clean, good shower (all en-suite), fast WiFi, perfect location (again :)).

My wife and I stayed here recently. Small room but good value and convenient location. Nice cafés and bars. About a 10 minute walk to notre dame, an hour walk to the Eiffel Tower. Parking on the street takes some searching but was free on the weekend.

Stayed here for two nights with two friends. Our room for three people had a smallish double bed and two single beds. It was just enough room for the three of us. It had a good shower (basic but powerful) and a new TV. The room was quiet and the beds were comfortable. Storage was limited but fine if just on a short city break. Good budget option.

The hotel is in an excellent location for an excellent price!
Facilities are very basic, rooms are super tiny. However, it is clean and cosy.
Finding an affordable hotel in central Paris is quite a challenge, so if you are more for the location and not for fanciness, this is the hotel for you!

The hotel is located quite close to the center, and really close to the Luxembourg metro station and various bus stops. There are also some nice restaurants and pubs in the area. Also, the Pantheon and the Luxembourg park is a short walk from the hotel.
The room we got was somewhat small, but clean and cozy.
It is located in a quiet side street, and almost no traffic is heard at night. The walls are a bit thin though, so noise travels between rooms. This was however not a big problem.
