“A charming small hotel with a friendly staff and just the right location”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

Michelle booked our reservation by email it was a wonderful experience so efficient that the entire transaction was concluded in a few minutes by phone and email. When she learned that it was our wedding anniversary she booked us in a room with a view of Notre Dame. On arrival Lorette was at the front desk and couldn't have been more helpful.We felt like we were being greeted by an old friend. For the next few days Lorette attended to our every need, question and request. It felt like we were the only guests in the hotel. For the remainder of our stay Michelle attended to our every need, question and request. Again we were treated like we were the hotel's only guests. These two front desk women are really jewels in Best Western's crown.
They were the front desk, concierge, reception and so much more...... WOW - My wife and I are seasoned world travelers and been traveling to Paris off and on for 50 years. These two women were perhaps the most professional, efficient, knowledgeable, front desk employees that we have ever encountered. They went out of their way to assist us in every way possible, not just limited to the hotel stay, but to share restaurant and tour recommendations, Museum and transportation tips and more, including directions to shops. When I left my briefcase in the hotel on departure, Michelle arranged to have the briefcase delivered to the airport within minutes. They made this visit PERFECT. Best Western should recognize these two women as "Outstanding Employees"!
We would not hesitate to return or to recommend the hotel to anyone.

I booked this hotel for my niece and her daughter to stay. The room was very clean as was the rest of the hotel but the room was tiny tiny. Really only room for one person. Complimentary breakfast was a nice touch. But since they only stayed two nights, it served its purpose for the price. Very reasonable priced for Paris in August!

I have been to Paris three times and this hotel was by far my favorite. The location is unbeatable with all the shops, bistros, restaurants and night life. The hotel is very neat and clean. Our room had the view of Notre Dame. The employees were friendly and very helpful. A special thanks to Michele who gave us fantastic directions to our various destinations and was very patient with us. The decor of this hotel is very rich, warm and cozy. The Metro is nearby as well as the taxi stand. There is a wonderful bakery across the street if you don't feel like eating a full breakfast which is offered at the hotel. Starbucks is also nearby if you need a coffee fix. The hotel price is very reasonable for Paris. Our room was small, but the bathroom was very adequate in size. Also be aware that that the elevator is very small and this is not unusual for Paris. Both of us could get on the elevator with two moderate sized suitcases but there was no room to spare. We were on the 5th floor which I recommend for views and less noise. The room's walls were thick enough that we could not hear our neighbors. I highly recommend this hotel and would definitely return. It is also close to the Luxenbourg Gardens, Saint Michele, Notre Dame, and the Louvre.

Room Tip: Our room 505 had a fabulous view of Notre Dame and it was quiet. We could hear the courtyard fountai...

This hotel was fantastic for our first time being in Paris. At time of reservation, hotel offered CDG shuttle, use it! It was easy and cheaper than bus or taxi. We rented the Deluxe Suite and were not disappointed. The price was high but had deal; breakfast buffet was included. The suite was very spacious as we were a family of 3, room slept 4. It came with a fridge, so we easily found grocery store near by and also saved on dining costs. Wonderful Bistrot St Germain nearby as well as many cafes. This district is truly wonderful! 10 min walk to River Seine, 15 mins to Notre Dame and about 70 min walk to Eiffel Tower. What better way to experience Paris than by foot! Highly recommend Vedette du Pont Neuf boat ride, they run every hour and economical, catch the sunset boat if you can. Breakfast had decent variety, our teenage daughter loved the crepes and chocolat chaud (hot cocoa) served with warm milk. From our suite we were in awe of the view of Eiffel Tour and Notre Dame right outside our roof top windows (6th floor). Warning: hotel elevator is small (3 thin people max) and room key activated electrical for room.

If St. Germain is your place for visiting Paris this is your hotel. Price/Value speaking. Clean. But incredibly small for our taste. Reception was always helpful at all times. The hotel is right next to the Odeon Metro station. Across the street there is an Eric Kayser bakery for breakfast or a snack. RIght on St. Germain blvd. I would highly recommend NEOBISTRO, always with a smile and they serve breakfast after noon. We would recomend this hotel but be ware as are most of the rooms in Paris, its small.

The review from jaskav below is spot on. The hotel is lovely and the location is wonderful. We took the RER train from CGD airport, and were able to walk to the hotel from the St. Michel stop- under 10 minutes. We could walk to most of our destinations, and there is a metro stop very nearby.
We, too, thought that the breakfast situation was uninspired and not worth the money. We regretted that we didn't just walk around the corner to have croissants and coffee in a cheerier atmosphere for a few euros. The staff members we encountered were not very welcoming or helpful. This charming little hotel deserves better! We would, however, definitely recommend this hotel for a short stay in Paris.

Its was good value for money and reasonable service, small cab ride to the center of Paris.
Quite family district with atmosphere. More relaxing that staying in the center. Friendly staff.

There was a lot of local services such as a laundry, shops, train. It was one of the best districts I have stayed in Europe. The most relaxing part of my holiday. The room is small but the price was low. But the district was nice so you don't really need a big room when you have quiet areas.

Laundry can take up a lot of time, therefore its best to be near services when on holiday. Catching a cab when you have a lot of cloths is no fun. This area was ideal. I often think of St Germain when I hear of Paris.
