An excellent hotel in an older building, located near Jardin du Luxembourg. Able to reach on Metro if you can read maps and do a few steps. Staff offered spontaneously to help with tickets, etc. if you want. Can walk to many wonderful bars, brasseries and restaurants and most tourist sites are either a close or a longish but pleasant...

We have stayed here many times in the last 30 years (I just counted) and it is our first choice of base in Paris. Conveniently located near the Odeon metro, which is just a few stops for the Gare du Nord, it is comfortable, friendly and reasonably priced. A few years ago it had a major re-decoration and it still... More

Planning to return to Paris after 4 years, my 3 friends and I decided unanimously to return to this hotel. It has been refurbished since our last visit and, at least in the room I shared, the shower room has been updated. The rooms are still very small and there is still no air conditioning but we found fans in... More

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.
