Tucked away on a small street on the Left Bank the Hotel Sainte-Beuve, a magnificent "home from home" in which to rest after a walk through central Paris, is an address that has remained secret for several decades.

My wife and I visited Paris for a 3 day "city break" and were guests at the Sainte Beuve. I came down with a bad cold upon arrival and so spent some of my time in bed at the hotel. The folks at the front desk were very attentive, always asking if I needed anything and, although

Staff were very welcoming and very knowledgable about surrounding area. Hotel was very well finished and in a good location just 20 minutes from Notre Dame. The room was very nice although a little small but the bed was comfy and silent

Been visiting this hotel since 2009 and it still has the pinache of a small charming hotel but it is no longer a 5 star luxury. The staff always accommodating and rooms have character but looking a bit tired now. Bathroom towel heaters have been removed, clean bed linen on

Dear Guest, Thank you so much for sharing your guest experience on TripAdvisor! We have noted all your remarks positive and negative and know that they are all very important to us. First, concerning the hotel ranking system. Know that the hotel Sainte-Beuve has never been a five-star hotel and has never pretended to be one. In France, the hotels are not allowed to give themselves the number of stars they would think they deserve. Indeed, there’re special competent state authorities who decide, every five years, to give or not, the number of stars the hotel would like to display. They carry out the relevant checks and controls before taking their decision. Know that our hotel has been rated as a four-star hotel in 2018. We’re sorry about the heating towel rack in the bathroom which wasn’t there when you checked-in. Is is present and works in all our rooms, however, the thermostat of the heating towel rack has failed just before your arrival, so we had to remove it and we are waiting for a new one which will be provided shortly by the company in charge. We’re sorry also that a hole appeared in the bed linen, it’s been removed and replaced immediately. We did the same about the cleaning of the toilet rooms. Know that we have painters and technicians working in our hotel every week making sure that everything is in top condition and spotlessly clean. We have noted that you appreciated the quality of our Continental breakfast and that our location suited you so well! We’re hoping that your experience at Sainte-Beuve has been overall nice and that you will be back with us on you next trip to Paris. With our warmest regards, Ivan SIMON – Front Office manager

Lovely location not too close to the centre and not too far away. Surrounded by great restaurants and lovely cafes to be expected but the reception was exceptional. Very polite and informative staff who were more than happy to assist where required. Room was exactly what you

Bonjour, Thank you so much for your beautiful recommendation on TripAdvisor! We’re so happy that your stay has been enjoyable at our hotel! And, that you appreciated both the warm and relaxing atmosphere of the Sainte-Beuve, indeed “flooded with character”; and, our staff’s personalized service, professionalism and care. The fact that you felt comfortable with the location might be of interest for many travelers. Indeed, from the street Sainte-Beuve, - where the hotel is located, and which, is quaint and quiet; to the lively and convenient neighborhood: offering countless vintage and typical restaurants, bistros, but also many interesting monuments and places to visit, as the Luxembourg gardens, Pantheon, Catacombs, etc. We’re so sorry that the taxi you’ve taken from Gare du Nord upon your arrival to Paris had such a poor and expensive service. Know that, not only, as you’ve mentioned, the taxis we’re calling for you from the Reception are all correct and way less expensive; but also, we’re offering to collect you with our private driver’s service from all the Parisian train stations for 30 euros. We hope to welcome you back with us in the near future. With our warmest regards, Ivan SIMON – Front Office manager

I suspect yes - as they were incredibly helpful and they did arrange other transfers. But the trains are so easy to use and more economical in Paris: Paris Montparnasse (which is near the hotel) to metro stop Port Royal - then change to get to Chatelet les Halles (big intersection) the the RER A (red line) going to Marne-la-Vallée—Chessy - will take about 1 hour.
