This is a quaint hotel, perfectly located in the Saint Germaine district on a pedestrian type street. The lobby was comfortable to catch up on email. Shopping, restuarants, and yummy gelato right out the front door. I was traveling by myself and was able to find my way around quite well with some assistance from the helpful front desk staff,...

My grandson and I stayed at this small but delightful hotel for four nights. Staff very friendly and helpful, nice breakfast served in a former wine cellar. Clean, nicely decorated rooms with ample size bathrooms. We will stay there again.

Buffet breakfast was just ok, but I love how they decorated the place. If they'd upgraded the price&quality of breakfast a bit higher, this would be a perfect place for breakfast in the morning. Housekeepers were very nice even though they couldn't speak much english, but they tried their best to communicate with us and get us what we needed.... More

The location os this hotel is simply perfect, right in the heart of St-Germain and walking distance to everything, including the RER from CDG (5 minutes from St-Germain station). Loved the atmosphere in the pedestrian streets below (see photo) and the easy walk to the Louvres, Notre-Dame, etc. The hotel itself is what you should expect in this part of... More

I made reservations for this place many months in advance. Upon our arrival, they told us they didn't have room for us and sent us to their "partner" hotel down the street. The receptionist at the Grand Hotel de l'Univers was friendly enough, but there is no excuse for the mistake they made. This type of customer service is exactly... More

This hotel is very conveniently located in a typical Parisian neighborhood with lots of cafes and restaurants around. It's about 10 minutes to walk to the Louvre. I arrived early, and they had a room ready, which was great. My room was rather small, but in Paris I was not going to spend much time in my room.

We spent 2 nights here. This was an expensive hotel, but not by Paris standards. Our 5th floor room was small, it was elegantly furnished and it served us very well. Free Wi-fi, wonderful hip location, stylish & tasteful lobby, this hotel is on a pedestrian-only street, which was nice. Street noise from the neighborhood cafes went on from 6... More

The hotel is rated three star and that's fair. Yet even with our fast shrinking dollar - $285 without taxes or breakfast is too high. A very old hotel that has been redone- rooms are small but comfortable. It is on a street that becomes noisy at night- but closed windows block most noise. Free wi-fi but a computer downstairs...

Excellent location, close to many attractions and the Latin Quarter. We walked everywhere, but there are nearby metro stops as well! This is a small hotel on a small street, rustic beams, antique - just adorable. Staff was very pleasant and welcoming, provided kettle and smoking room on request.

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

Neighborhood Profile
Saint-Germain-des-Pres
In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops, ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants. Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine art school and small museums hide in unassuming squares. The neighborhood’s namesake church is the oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented musicians every weekend. The Luxembourg Gardens house the national senate, splendid lawns and flourishing flower beds. Famous faces and bourgeois Parisians frequent Saint Germain accompanied by the students of Rue Saint Guillaume and Rue des Saints-Pères. This is a neighborhood where afternoon people-watching from a café or playing cards in a brasserie are a key part of the daily fabric.
