“Great location and great staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

This hotel is very well located in the latin quarter, next to jardin de luxembourg and the pantheon. The room, the shower and the elevator are quite small, but that's common in central Paris. The hotel was clean and comfortable and the air conditioning (not so common in Paris) was a blessing in the mid-July heat and humidity, The staff was very kind and very helpful.

The staff is welcoming and helpful. The location is walking distance to Luxembourg Gardens and the Lourve and many great cafes and stores. The rooms are not large but newly remodeled, clean and comfortable with all the necessary amenities (hairdryer, internet access, air conditioning).
If you're looking for an authentic Parisian hotel, this hotel is a great choice.

Room Tip: The top floor rooms are the best!

Very nice rooms, clean and quite. Wonderful staff. Great location. Very easy to get to from CDG: just take RER B. Very good wifi. A 3G mobile router borrowing service. Good value for money.

FYI: The elevator is small and the rooms are not big. However, both are better than what you normally find in Paris

My husband and I spent 4 nights at the Hotel Design. It met all of our needs, at a reasonable price. It is clean, centrally located to sights and the metro, the staff is friendly and helpful, and there is air conditioning. Just around the corner is a little square with restaurants and a tabac, all of which we used. Breakfast was not included (but can be purchased) so we bought croissants, fruit, and juice and ate in our room.

The hotel is located on a quiet street opposite the Sorbonne, and easy 10-minute walk from either the Odeon or the Cluny - La Sorbonne metro stations. Even though the hotel was on a small street, the area felt safe as there are restaurants nearby.

Even though our room was small, it was clean and the design was modern and functional, so we felt comfortable.

As mentioned in other reviews, the lift had room for two large suitcases and one person, so we opted to take the stairs when not carrying luggage.

We stayed here for six nights. We had one of the queen deluxe rooms and were pleased with the size of the room. It wasn't huge, but believe me, I've stayed in much smaller rooms. The staff were friendly. The hotel is very conveniently located. I was initially surprised that they have guests cook their own eggs at breakfast (unless you want them boiled), but after the initial surprise wore off, I enjoyed it. That way, you know you get them the way you like them. My only complaint would be that the staircase is a spiral staircase, which I don't like in general, and that the elevator is so small and slow that it's not a practical alternative. I would definitely be willing to stay there again if I return to Paris.
