The room air conditioner was unusable because it smelled like a poisonous mold was growing inside. Things went downhill fast from there - the clerk told us we could park anywhere on the street since it was Sunday night. Our car was gone at 11 PM, and we had to get to the airport the next morning. The clerk could... More

I loved everything about this hotel except the 77 steps I had to climb to get to our forth floor room! The room itself was too small for four people but the bathroom was a comfortable size. We had two in the double bed, one on a mattress on a small frame on the floor, and one in a twin... More

A wonderfully romantic spot in the St Germain of Paris. Easy to get to, and well located on a side street, this was recommended to us by Parisian friends, many years ago. The building is one of the older ones in Paris, but the boutique hotel has charm, and is a great spot for a romantic weekend.

Yes, this hotel is old. The building has been here forever but there are very few modern amenities. There are only two electric outlets and they're both taken by hotel TV and fan. There is no air conditioning and no lifts. We initially had a fifth floor room but anyone over 50 won't enjoy that climb. The only other room... More

My sister & I had a wonderful stay. We loved that we were so close to the vibrancy of the Latin Quarter with all its historical churches and buildings, cafes & night life . Also that it's an easy walk to the Louvre, Musee D'Orsee, Notre Dame and so close metro & RER stations. Our room was small but comfortable... More

We loved the hotel for its gorgeous, fourth floor terrace off our room, friendly staff, the scrumptious Parisian breakfast, and the charm of such a historic inn. Don't book here because it's fancy and perfect and modern. Book because it's one of a kind and beautiful and close to everything the left bank has to offer.

First up, I love this place. Built over 500 years back, a hotel since around 1900 and still reminds you of that history. Located in the heart of Paris, this is a gooden. Now, reading some reviews and comments would confuse anyone, but let's be real. Yes, the stairs can be a challenge and they are installing a small lift... More

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.
