“great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

This hotel has a great location, close to the Isle de la Cite, Luxembourg Gardens, Pantheon, Musee de Cluny, metros, etc.. Clean and quiet. Friendly staff. The rooms are small, but that is normal for the center of Paris.

We were prepared for a very tiny room but we're positively surprised to have a reasonable shower+ toilet size. Room was clean and was cleaned again every day with new linen.
The location of this hotel is superb! On the edge of the breath-taking Luxembourg gardens and the Sorbonne. 5 minutes walk from bvd. Saint Germain. 15 minutes from Notre Dam.
All staff was friendly and speaks good English. And although very close to everywhere, it's a very quiet hotel.

Air conditioning was great!

Few things that could make our stay even better:

1. The desk does not include a drawer, which would have been very handy to keep small stuff.
2. There's no way to make coffee or tea.
3. Internet can get very slow/stuck in evening/night time

Having said all the above, I am very happy with our choice. For the budget we limited ourselves for, I am confident that we chose the best hotel!

Thanks and hope to come back soon.

My husband & I stayed here mid-July 2014. We prefer to stay at local hotels rather than at American chains.

The Good Stuff: The front desk staff was very friendly, very helpful, & multi-lingual. It is very close to Metro & RER-B- Luxembourg (commuter rail) Stations. The shower did not seem to have a flow-restrictor on it. Decent sound proofing between rooms. Decent price. Air conditioning worked well.
The OK Stuff: Breakfast was typical cold 'continental'. No fresh fruit. Coffee was good. There was a cold drink machine but it was out of order. Elevator was small but functional.
The Not-So-Good Stuff: Room smelled like damp, dirty socks. (Near the radiator, the carpet looked wet, but was dry, so I am not sure if it is an on-going problem/source of the smell or not.) The shower leaked on to the floor, typical of the 'half door' design throughout Europe. One could easily get splinters from the wooden window railing. Our room was about 10'X10'. The internet was slow enough that 90 sec videos stopped every 3-7 seconds to buffer. Even when we would push the pause button for 3 min to allow it to buffer, it would exhibit the same behavior. The sink was very, very slow draining. There was much discoloration at the base of the hinge-side of the bathroom door (I didn't look too closely). The bed was made with a heavy duvet, which didn't make any sense to me considering the time of year.
Note: When we mentioned some of these negative things, we were told that they may be doing some upgrades soon. We did not ask for clarification.

Room Tip: For two people, if you have any choice, ask for a 'family' room. You will get a few more sq...

Room was clean and bright. Americans who have not previously visited France will need to get used to the smaller room size that is typical here. The air-conditioning was controllable and worked well. The street was quiet except for the garbage trucks at 6 AM. The staff is happy to accommodate your language preference. They speak English well, but they do not insist on speaking it if you would like to practice your French. The excellent breakfast consists of croissant, rolls, jam, granola, yogurt, orange juice, and a pot of hot chocolate if you don't want coffee. Wifi is offered for as many devices as you have, but sometimes did not work. Convenient location for RER B train to/from CDG airport. We would stay here again. "Excellent rapport qualité prix."

Stay here for: Proximity to Latin Quarter & St. Germain, easy access to/from Gare Du Nord (Eurostar)

The good...
+ Easy access to public transport: 5min walk to RER Luxembourg station (Recommend to take RER B from Gare Du Nord); 5+min walk to Odeon metro station (line 4 & 10).
+ 15-20min walk to Notre Dame (and Île Saint-Louis - you need to try Berthillon Ice Cream!)
+ Various dining options nearby (Latin Quarter, St. Germain)
+ Free wifi (just let the reception staff know how many devices you need the username and pw for)
+ Complimentary luggage storage
+ Good friendly service - complimentary map available; there is even a Rick Steves' Paris guidebook at the lobby lounge
+ Lift/ Elevator
+ Monoprix nearby - a sort of supermarket (UK equivalent: Waitrose) - you can buy bottled water cheaply here. (although tap water is technically safe to drink in Paris, I prefer to drink bottled water, where possible)

The not so good...
- Not fully sound-proofed. It really depends on your luck - pray hard you do not encounter boisterous customers from the pub a few doors down.
- Shampoo is provided, but it made my hair really dry (and tangled). Remember to bring conditioner!
- Breakfast is chargeable at ~€10; quick peek reveals it consists of just cereals, toast, coffee/tea and orange juice. You can get the same at Brioche Doree (~10min walk, minus the cereals) for half the price. Recommend to skip the hotel fare and explore the surrounding bistros, brasseries and cafes.

Other comments:
Beds are single to super-single sized, but this is the standard size (from what I saw during my research) - it's neither a pro nor a con.

Would I stay here again? Probably not, not because the hotel isn't good, but because I would like to experience staying in other neighbourhoods (Montmarte etc).

friendly and very, very helpful front desk, clean and very quiet. perfect location near boul. st-michel, next to place de la sorbonne, and few minutes walk to the odeon, pantheon. and luxembourg gardens. in the latin quarter on the left bank near wonderful galleries and shops and close to the metro. Bigger elevator and bathroom than in other budget hotels. Very comfortable pillows and mattress.

Room Tip: I stayed in a room looking onto the interior courtyard. Limited view but zero street noise.

I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights.
Room was tiny, but I think it is better than other same-ranked hotel in Paris. Also, the price is reasonable.
Breakfast is optional. Menu was traditional French breakfast. But one thing I want to point out, is that coffee tastes very nice, is was best coffee I drunk in this trip. (It was better than five-star hotel I stayed later)
As you see, I was satisfied in most point on this hotel, but one thing I didn't like was water drain in bathroom. It takes many time to drain the water on bath tub, and may be because of it, bad smell sometimes come from bath room.
