Citadines Saint-Germain-des-Pres Paris

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 12, 2014

Indeed, the longish title sums up what's remarkable about this modernly-quaint, to coin a description, Apartment Hotel on the left bank of the river seine.
Sadly, our one bedroom apartment was not river facing but in the rear of the property. However it was well appointed and quiet and kind of "cute" given its split level layout with the living room with its double sofa cum bed downstairs as also the kitchen and the toilet and the main bedroom and the shower upstairs! Sounds bizarre and it is a bit let me say- but we got used to this pretty quickly and got on with life, welcoming the opportunity to get some extra exercise in taking the lovely wooden stairway that curved upstairs to the bedroom.

People make the difference is something we often say when describing businesses or hotels. This truly played out at the Citadines Saint Germain des pres! The staff at the front desk- all of them, across shifts, was competent, helpful and courteous. I must single out the ever smiling and super efficient Sofia as well as Elsa- who though relatively new at the property, was ever willing to help with facilities and directions or anything else we needed.
A lot of credit goes to Mr Manh Tuong Trinh- the affable Guest Relation Manager, who wears his love for the job he's done for 30 years with the ease of a freshman and the aplomb of a senior Pro! One would believe that his customer delight ethos has played a large part in the way people at the hotel look after every customer. Sitting in the sky light warmed bright lobby, sipping cups of complementary tea or coffee or hot chocolate- available round the clock out of a well positioned machine- one couldn't help observing how every guest was attended to with full attention and efficiency by the lobby managers and the front office folks.

Great location too- minutes away from the Notre dam, Saint Michel Boulevard, Pont Neuf and from there all the way to the Louvre, Champs Élysées, the Arc de Triumph as well as Musee D'Orsay, Latin quarter, Montraprannase, Saint Germain Boulevard and high fashion shopping at Rue Royal. Well connected by Metro to the Palace of Versailles, Eiffel Tower- just 3 stops- Palais Royale, the Napoleons museum, Pantheon and thro Montraprannase, the Catacombs.
The location is not just beautiful and strategic in terms of where it is in Paris( Notre Dam is the geographical centre of the city!), but also eliminates Euros of travel cost and promotes walking! I still have not mentioned the magnificent gardens- Jardines de Tulleries, through which one walks once past the Louvre and the Concorde Plaza. Or Jardines de Luxembourg a couple of blocks down on Boulevard St Michel.
Back to the hotel and our apartment, I must add that the kitchen was fully equipped with whatever one could need- from crockery to cutlery to utensils, a kettle, toaster and cleaning materials. So it's easy to churn out breakfast or a home cooked meal!
To summarise, we truly loved the place and would recommend it every time and go back to it too!

We had three nights here after an extended trip through Belgium and France and were looking for a classy Hotel in a perfect location at a good price - we found it! The location couldn't have been better for exploring Paris, right on the river and just across from the Notre Dame. Very friendly and obliging front of house staff helped us get around and pointed out the locations of ATMs, supermarkets etc so we could make the most of the in room kitchen and save our money for activities elsewhere. Excellent clean quiet rooms, three of us spread out over the suite, and free coffee in the lobby was a bonus! Free wifi was very good speed also. Would definitely stay here again next time.

Je ne parle pas bien français - parle anglais. We love this hotel - in the best neighborhood in Paris, close to great restaurants and food markets where we shop and bring home vin rouge, baguette, e fromage. We will be back. Kirsten Weinoldt

Stayed here for four nights in May 2014.
Well appointed and comfortable clean rooms. They had sink, hot plate and microwave for a self-catering option in the room.
The welcome from Leuticia at reception was prompt and efficient. She gave us a map and happily pointed out all the places we would need, supermarket, restaurants etc.
Location is great as you walk around the corner to a fantastic area with many eatery selections close by.
Breakfast was a good selection for 12 Euro. Fruit, yoghurt, pastries, cold meats and cheeses, breads to toast, eggs and bacon. A really good breakfast.
We will stay here again.

Location couldn't have been better. Close enough to everything including the metro. The staff was always helpful and very concerned that we enjoyed our room. The first night there was a lot of noise, but that was a saturday night and we did not have any other problems afterwards. When we mentioned this to the staff they offered to change rooms for us (without us requesting the change). However, we did not feel that a change was necessary. They did come change towels and made up the beds daily. One other plus was that we arrived early in the day after our flight (around 8 a.m.) and we were able to go ahead and check in. BTW there is a lovely little book store around the corner and I got some French children's books for my grandkids for around 5 euros.
