My wife and I have fallen in love with this hotel 25 years ago, and have returned many times ever since.The hotel has significantly upgraded its rooms and overall quality during these years: from slightly ramshackle and inexpensive to tasteful but subtly simple - so much in tune with its surroundings. A lovely base from which to explore our favourite part of Paris!

This is a fine little hotel. Located in a courtyard, set back from a quiet side street, the lack of external noise is amazing for such a marvelous, central location. True, the rooms are small and the bathroom tiny, but they are adequate for a short stay. Breakfast is good, the staff competent and friendly, and the garden charming. Very good value as well, in comparison with what you can get in central Paris.

The only negative is the noise from air conditioning and fans in adjacent rooms. If you're the sort of person who finds that a problem, then it may be am issue here. Otherwise, strongly recommended.

We (me, my wife and two young daughers) arrived tired after a day's travel to find that our email reservation had not been received by the hotel. This was totally my fault (2 'n's in "Marrionniers"...), but the receptionist could not have been nicer and more helpful. She found us a room (I think it was better than the one we had originally tried to book but she gave us it at the same price) and so, relieved, we settled in. The rooms were compact but very comfortable (and astonishingly quiet) and perfectly fine for what we needed, which was a base to explore the fantastic local area. A restaurant round the corner had been recommended and we had a lovely meal, then a short stroll to the river where we watched the sunset from the Pont des Amants. The hotel also has a lovely garden which, sadly, we didn't actually have time to go and sit in. But, if we come back to Paris, then we would definitely stay at this hotel again.

Dear MSJS80,

It was with a real pleasure that received your comment on Trip Advisor.

Mistakes can happen specially with an "n" or "r" missing at "marronniers". However, we always try to find a room for guests arriving without reservation, at Hotel Des Marronniers, or in the neighborhood. As it was low season, hotel had rooms available, and you could stay with us!
All the staff was pleased to read that you enjoyed your stay with us.
Paris is a nice city with a lot of places to see. You will need more than one stay to visit it. That is why you will have to come back and so you will be able to enjoy the garden!!

We hope to see you soon at Hotel Des Marronniers.

Kind Regards,

I love staying at Hotel des Marronniers. A friend and I stayed at this hotel several years ago, and my cousin and I stayed there for about a week last October. The rooms are charming, yes, a bit small, but nicely furnished and comfortable. The staff is always very courteous, pleasant and helpful. I will be in Paris again this October and have booked my stay at Hotel des Marronniers. As mentioned already in many reviews, the location is very convenient, with interesting shops and restaurants only a few steps away.

We thank you for taking time to write a comment about Hotel Des Marronniers and we are glad to welcome you back next October!
Saint-Germain des Près is a wonderful area, very lively.
Hôtel Des Marronniers has small rooms because of the age of the building. We tried to make it nice and comfortable because changing the size is hard. All the staff was pleased to read that you enjoyed your stay!

See you in October...

Hotel is very nice.
All the staff was kind and helpful
It is in a building built when people were humble :) It has small coridors, rooms, bathrooms but it actually did not bother us. you get the same dimension bed and bathtub as others but in a smaller room. one of our rooms was with soft fabric covered on the walls and ceiling while the other one with mirror in the bathroom all around.
it is located in a great neighbourhood. hotel area was very quiet and when you walk for a minute there are nice restaurants and bars nearby.
when you walk five minutes you are at Saint Michel Square by the river Seine. just across the river stands Notre Damme Cathedral and another 10-15 minute walk takes you to Louvre.
Hotel has a pretty backyard area to have breakfast or coffee
At Saint Michel square there is a RER station together with metro (subway/underground) which takes you to CDG airport. we used it to go to Parc Asterix (which btw, was awesome).
I wouldnt mind the negative reviews. anyway when you are in Paris you dont spend much time in your hotel.

Dear Htacal,

We would like to thank you for taking time to write a comment about Hotel Des Marronniers.

All the information you mentioned about hotel and area will help our guests to organize their stay. As you wrote it, we are located in a central area. You can walk to many touristic places and then have a rest in the garden of the hotel.
Size of rooms is explained by the age of the building, however we hope that you enjoyed comfort and decoration.

We will be pleased to welcome you back to Hotel Des Marronniers, maybe next winter to discover the garden under the snow... Another atmosphere.

Best Regards,

We had a wonderful weekend in this amazing hotel. Stuff is very friendly and helpful, breakfast, afternoon coffee and drinks are great and it is probably the most charming darden terrace in St. Germain des Pres.
We'll be back soon!

Room Tip: If you need silence to sleep go for a room overlooking the courtyjard.

I stayed here for 3 nights June 9-12, 2013. The hotel is perfectly located and well priced for the area which is one of the most expensive in Paris. The rooms were adequate but small - bathrooms like on a cruise ship, our dbl. room had two beds, small desk and window on the courtyard. Only really complaint was the slow breakfast service waiting 15 minutes for coffee. The staff were friendly and spoke English. The garden and breakfast room are a truly beautiful and there is a lounge on the lower floor (basement) level. This hotel is about 10 minute walk to the Seine ... I rate this a 8 on a scale of 1-10. As a travel agency owner I would recommend this hotel for a short stay in Paris.

Dear Greg E,

We would like to thank you for choosing Hotel Des Marronniers.

All the staff was pleased to read your nice comment.
Saint-Germain des Près is a lively district and one of the most attractive of Paris. That is why it is also one of the most expensive.
As many of old French buildings, Hotel Des Marronniers has rooms and bathrooms of a small size. However, we paid much attention to comfort and decoration.
We took note of your remark concerning waiting for breakfast. We are sorry for that and we will see how we can improve that service.

It will be a pleasure to welcome you back to Hotel Des Marronniers.
