Hotel de Suede St. Germain
Ranked #886 of 1,802 Hotels in Paris
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 8, 2013

The location was decent but there are many others to choose from even closer to St. Germain. The hotel is small and potentially charming but the service is mediocre. The front desk team are not particularly organized nor accommodating. Getting Wifi passwords or power adapters proved both irritating to the staff and beyond them. Yes, we're tourists, no, we can speak French and don't need any attitude, but please realize that when we return we'll be picking a different business. The overall impression is that we were the only people happy to have us stay there. Everyone else was just inconvenienced.

Also, the room - we get that Paris hotels have small rooms. The bed barely fit the space - too cramped, get smaller beds and new linen.

This hotel was quiet pricey, but that's because it is situated in a post area. Overall it was a good hotel, the room we had was spacious and we sleept well due to the silence. We didn't have breakfast, €13,- per person is just too much money we thought. There are plenty of brasseries offering breakfast for less. Metro Vaneau is the nearest station, only some 3 minutes walk. Free wifi is offered if you take a closer look at the login-page. Otherwise the hotel will charge you €10 a day.

Cute hotel off the beaten path and in a great location. Neighborhood feels fairly upscale and definitely safe area. We like to walk and were able to get to most attractions in Paris this way. There are a few close metro stations for those that prefer.

Room was small but "normal" for European standards, it was sufficient. Very clean and quaint. Hotel staff was friendly and helpful with questions and all spoke good English.

We always passed on the breakfast as there are tons of local cafes that are close. I would recommend checking them out instead just to explore.

I would certainly stay here again in the future.

This was a great hotel in a terrific location. I enjoy walking to take in the flavor of a city and this location allowed me to most of the sights in Paris. The breakfast was simple and adequate. I had a very small single room that was a good value for Paris.

This is a great hotel for the budget-minded Paris visitor who plans on riding the Metro. It is a short (less than half a mile) walk from two different Metro stops. When we checked in I led off with speaking French and the young lady there responded in English. She said, "we can continue in French if you want," but I told her that I was very glad to use English. That was a good start to our visit.

The elevator is incredibly small, but it got us to our room. The room was not big, but it was certainly big enough for two people. The bathroom seemed pretty spacious for one in a European city and it even had a full tub, which my wife appreciated after a long day of walking. We also liked the view from our room as we could see a nearby garden.

The hotel is definitely off the beaten path, though it is a reasonable walk from it to the Jardin du Luxembourg as well as the Palace des Invalides. It's also a short walk to the Musee Rodin. If I were to return to Paris I could see staying there again.

One tip - there plenty of excellent boulangeries nearby, so I would not spend the 15 euros on breakfast there. The food is overpriced, but the room is not. It is certainly not posh, but it is clean, comfortable, and fairly convenient.

We spent 4 days in this hotel as a tourists (not a business trip). The location is very good - close to 3 metro stations and not so far from the center. The staff is very friendly and positive. We stayed in a room with a street view (not to the garden as prefer many visitors) but event this room was quiet and nice. We stayed in economy double room - it was not very big but really nice, clean and comfortable enough. Nothing was missing. The next time we visit Paris we will choose this hotel again. We are looking forward to visit one of the rooms with garden view.
We saw the garden view and it looks really nice.
One of the mornings we went for breakfast a little bit late and there was almost nothing left. So the breakfast could be better.

Room Tip: If you like sun light in the morning - ask for a room with a garden view. And go early for the break...

This was a very nice hotel; good location, clean rooms. Disappointed with the size of the room, however. We had a quad, one double, two twin; not a lot of room to move, but we were there for only one night, so it was OK.
If you use the airport shuttle, be aware, the driver never talked to us and never asked what airline we were going to; he wanted to drop us at the wrong terminal because that was where the other family was going. He was very annoyed that he needed to make another trip to the other side of the airport to get us to our airline.
