I stayed in at the Grand Hotel des Balcons for 6 nights in July, 2016. It shares some of the same features you will experience in most two star hotels in Paris: no air conditioning, really small rooms, bizarrely small lift, no bar. But ... as far as two star hotels in Paris go (and I only ever stay in... More

Got a good deal at this hotel for 5 nights in Paris. Lovely location steps from the Odeon theater, some pretty (and pricey) street cafes in Carrefour de l'Odeon, the Odeon metro station, the Luxembourg gardens, and many shops and restaurants. I walked almost everywhere but the close proximity to the metro was great when I was tired. Pretty sure... More

The breakfast was filling and delicious, the hotel is beautifully appointed in Belle Epoque style, every staff person we came into contact with was gracious and eager to be of service. The location is perfect for walking to all the sites, shops, and restaurants and the balconies in each room are a lovely touch.

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.
