This was our third stay at this hotel. It has been upgraded and is even better than on our previous visits. The staff are the same, including the breakfast staff and once again they were helpful and friendly. Ideally located close to Luxembourg Park as well as Notre Dame, Louvre, Saint Sulpice. Recommended.

We stayed here for four days when visiting Paris. The hotel is ideally located a short walk from the Seine, Saint Michel and the Notre Dame cathedral. There is also a supermarket close by.

Had a 3 week holiday in Europe and St Paul Rive Gauche hotel was the best hotel we stayed at during our travels. From check in to departure the staff and the hotel were faultless. The room had speedy wifi, comfy beds, great shower and bath facilities and the location was an easy walk to train stations and bus stops.... More

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.

Staying in Odeon / Saint-Michel

Neighborhood Profile
Odeon / Saint-Michel
As the bustling center of entertainment for the residents of the Rive Gauche, the activity at Odéon never stops. Boulevards are lined with traditional cafes, restaurants, and boutique cinemas. The streets surrounding the fountain at Saint-Michel provide eateries from around the world. Lively bars are just next door and the prototypical terraced French brasserie is on every corner. The setting for this area is second to none; the Haussmann-style boulevards are contrasted by monumental architecture and overshadowed by the iconic Notre Dame, all within a moment’s walk from the Seine. This neighborhood's world-famous bookshops, cafés, and streets will not fail to impress you.

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
