Having arrived by Eurostar at Gare du Nord, we took a taxi (about 25 euro) to the Le Petit Paris on St Jacques across the Seine on the Left Bank. Not having stayed there before, we were pleased to see its surroundings as we crossed at Notre Dame, the Sorbonne, Cluny museum, and Pantheon. The hotel entrance is directly on the street so there was a rush to disembark from the taxi but clearly this was no concern.(Interestingly, the cab driver mentioned he had heard very positive comments about the hotel). The hotel is small but the welcome was large and warm from Laurent who was at the front desk to greet us. Our room was at the very top on the 5th floor but not so high that we could avoid the classic Paris view of rooftops and backyard terraces. Small but well appointed, the room served us well for 3 nights. Breakfast was an excellent assortment from eggs to baked goods, fruits, yogurts, etc...the usual. All supported by service including excellent coffee. The front desk provided excellent insight into transportation ;e.g. good bus connection from close behind at the Luxembourg Gardens to Eiffel Tower,etc.
