Charming hotel up the street from the Luxembourg. Pros: top location, comfortable bed, great A/C, quiet, friendly reception—Valerie. Cons: Small bathroom. I am a big man—getting in and out of the shower required a contortionist, which I am not.

We spent a week at this lovely little hotel recently. We had stayed here twice before in 1997 and 2002 and were once again thrilled with its location, the service and the quality.

I know Paris quite well, I was born north of Paris in 1975. But after 9 years in Ireland, this was my first visit in Paris since 2005, and I was anxious to find a hotel that offers peace and quiet in this fantastic and buzzy city. Saint Paul ticked all our boxes. The trick was to book not via... More

Tucked on a side street in walking distance of Luxembourg Gardens is this hotel. We arrived mid-morning.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Hotel Saint-Paul Rive Gauche belongs to a Franco-British family, hoteliers for 4 generations, who have made the hotel a marriage of French elegance and English comfort. Situated on the line of Paris' former outer wall under Philippe Auguste, this 17th century building was once the home of Franciscan monks. It was formerly called the "Hôtel du Reservoir" because the authentic well located in what is now the breakfast room used to serve as a water source for the whole neighbourhood. During the Second World War, the cellar of the hotel became a shelter. Very popular with the young American East Coast set who came to study at the Sorbonne University, the Hotel Saint-Paul Rive Gauche also numbered among its guests the famous jazzman Ornette Coleman. The 31 bedrooms are colourful and range in style from the modern - vibrant flowered fabrics - to the traditional - exposed beams and elegant opaque curtains. Those at the back have handsome views onto the classical façade of the prestigious Lycée St Louis, those in front look onto the ever fascinating Rue Monsieur le Prince. There are beamed ceilings, faux ostrich bed-heads, clever corner armoires, even two baldaquin beds beneath the high ceilings of the lower floors. Entirely renovated in 2015, this boutique-hotel is close to everything, in the heart of the action, but in a quiet little street. The Luxembourg gardens vicinity and the so many walking distance sites like the Sorbonne, Notre-Dame cathedral, the Pantheon, Cluny museum and the Louvre, make the Hotel Saint-Paul Rive Gauche a convenient pied- à-terre for enjoying the city. ... more   less
