“Friendly, Elegant, Quaint”
Reviewed October 12, 2011

I stayed here for six nights with my daughter. Staff are wonderful and helpful, rooms clean and huge attention to detail. Example: Our room had a sort of a lounge chair in it. I had my lap top set up in front of it. One day we returned to find the lounge chair replaced by a desk chair!

The whole feel of the place is very "well done," beautifully decorated with antiques in the rooms etc. Breakfast was very good but expensive, of course. Bathrooms lovely, spotless every night (and we didn't leave them that way I can assure you!)

This is central Paris so the rooms are small with little storage space. This is not a criticism, but it a fact and worth knowing. If you're travelling light as a tourist or on business this is no problem. If you're a clothes horse you will at the very least want to book one of their larger rooms (we were in a smaller room.)

The street is quiet and lovely, and a short walk to the Luxembourg garden and to several different metro lines.

Room Tip: Again if you need room for lots of clothes and luggae you will want to book one of their bigger room...

My husband and I stayed for 4 nights while we were in Paris and could not have been happier. The hotel is in a great location - in the 6th arrondisement in between 2 metro stations and on a quiet side street. Close to great restaurants too. Be sure to dine at Le Timbre 2 doors down the street- a 5-star restaurant that exemplifies prime Paris cuisine. Hotel staff are excellent. If your French is rusty like ours, you will feel comfortable speaking in just about any language. John speaks fluently in 5 !. John and others were very gracious in just about anything we needed. We were very pleased and recommend Hotel Sainte Beuve to everyone. You won't be disappointed.

This is the second time I've stayed at the Sainte Beuve and it did not disappoint in any way. The property is well maintained and spotless. The bathrooms are totally modern, yet the hotel's charm has been preserved. Staff was wonderful and helpful. Location near the Luxembourg Gardens and three subway stops is a definite plus. Quiet street, very low key and relaxing. Just lovely.

Room Tip: Request a room with a terrace overlooking Rue Sainte Beuve.

Lovely quiet street. My daughter and i had nice but not overly generous room overlooking street. Good sized bathroom-fridge in room was useful. Excellent helpful staff. Close to 2 Metro lines. Later this trip i stayed in Hotel Luxembourg Parc hotel -same area- which was also nice. We got a discount rate online for this which made it better value.. Next time i would choose on basis of price.

Tucked down a quiet side street close to the Metro and the Jardin du Luxembourg, my husband and I found this small boutique hotel to be tasteful and comfortable.

We booked a superior double room for 4 nights and were pleased with the size of the room and bathroom. We had plenty of space for our things and the bedding was comfortable.

We did not opt for the hotel's (pricey) breakfast because there were so many boulangeries and patisseries close by. Each morning we'd pop into this gorgeous little patisserie (Au Pain de Vavin) at the intersection of the Rue Vavin and Notre-Dame Des Champs for coffee and melt-in-your-mouth croissants. It was the perfect start to our days.

The hotel's location on the Left Bank worked great for our daytime sightseeing plans and we enjoyed exploring the many cafes and bistros in the 6th (and the nearby 14th) at night.

The hotel staff were friendly and I appreciated that they offered patient encouragement while I brushed up on my very rusty French language skills. Merci!!

Room Tip: Book a superior double room for adequate space for 2 adults

I stayed here over new years last year, and booked based upon trip advisor reviews. it definitely did not disappoint. the rooms were beautifully decorated (though cosy as is always the case in Paris!) with a beautiful bath, and there were lots of good restaurants near by. An easy walk up to St germain, and the staff were really helpful and friendly. Breakfast was fantastic, if not a little expensive. A really nice alternative to the souless business hotel chains.

We stayed two night in two rooms and enjoyed a lovely stay. The staff spoke English and were very helpful. Even checking on several restaurants for us to make sure they were open and provided directions. Our rooms had small balconies and they were a nice touch. The rooms were clean and air-conditioned. We love Paris and will return to stay at this wonderful hotel again.

Room Tip: It is worth the little extra to get a larger room with a balcony.
