“Quiet and comfortable”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

A lovely 'boutique' hotel that I have visited many times over a period of 15 years. Friendly staff and small but comfortable rooms. Those with a balcony overlooking the Pantheon are particularly charming.

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony room with a view of the Pantheon.

I stayed here in August for 3 days. The hotel is in an ideal location for exploring Paris right near the Pantheon but surprisingly in a very quiet location. The rooms are small as can be expected in Paris but very comfortable and exceptionally clean/ decorative with very good bathroom facilities. As a previous reviewer has already stated there is very little space to store your suitcases. If you cannot speak French the hotel staff speak good English and are extremely helpful. Breakfast was expensive but again not unexpected in a Parisan hotel but there are plenty of cafes/restaurants within a 10 min walk of the hotel. A taxi to the airport in one of there private cars is highly recommended, The car was very clean and the driver friendly. Costs 60 euros compared to the 70 euros I paid on arrival in a dirty uncomfortable vehicle with a miserable driver! This hotel is a little gem one which I would be happy to use again. Highly recommended.

We stayed for 2 nights during our stay in Paris. The location of the hotel is a 2 minute walk from the Metro and easy to find. The manager and staff at the hotel were extremely warm and friendly and couldnt be more helpful. The rooms are clean and perfect for a romantic stay. It is the type of hotel you would definitely stay again and again.

From start to finish we felt very welcome at this hotel with very good English speaking staff. The hotel was clean, comfortable and stunningly decorated. I had a few e-mails sent prior to our arrival and the hotel and staff could not do enough for us as they always replied quickly and we loved our two night stay. We were on our honeymoon and could not ask for better....

Room Tip: On the breakfast menu , it is not limited select everything that you need..

Stayed in this hotel for 1 night while transiting in Paris. Stayed in Paris many times before, and first time in Latin Quarter. This is right outside the Pantheon, a very quiet street @ night, although my room was facing the inner courtyard. While only walking around for one evening, not many students in the area (given uni), with lots of restaurants and pubs.

The hotel is small, typical for parisian hotels. a Lift is available!, but can fit 1 person with a big suitcase.

The room was small, but impressively, the bathroom is large. Has bath with shower head, and good water pressure and hot water. Extremely clean bathroom. The actual bedroom is nearly filled by the double bed, and two cupboards available. One of the cupboards stock a tiny safe and the other, a tiny TV. Chair and small table provided. Really not much space to put luggage, although could put into bathroom I guess. Would not recommend this hotel as someone wanting a place to stay during the day, as small and darkish. Air conditioning in hotel works very very well.

Reception: very helpful, speaks excellent english. Have to drop your keys with them before you leave.

Overall: enjoyed the hotel, I think price is comparable for French hotels, a nice location to start your day trips in Paris. You can book a reasonable price private car to airport which cost 60 Euro (very clean car compared to the taxi we caught from the airport initially).

We love the St. Germain/Luxombourg Garden area of Paris and couldn't get a room at our usual hotel (forgot its fashion week.). So, we searched for days to find a hotel that would give us the same service and quality accommodations. I chose this hotel after reading the reviews, and we were not disappointed. The service is friendly and prompt, and the rooms are comfortable and nicely decorated. Other reviewers mentioned that the rooms are small, so we upgraded to a balcony room and thought the size was fine (The bathrooms are timy but we managed it.) This is a three star hotel and our usual is a four star, but aside from the bathrooms, I can't honestly say that there is any noticeable difference in quality between the two hotels.

I did a lot of research before booking this hotel as was for our 1st wedding anniversary and wanted it to be special.

Rooms - stayed in 61 on the 6th floor. It had a balcony facing the Pantheon and was the full length of the room so had 2 sets of french doors leading out to it. We bought ham, cheese, & baguettes along with a bottle of wine and watch everyone coming and going down below. From it, we could see Sacre Coeur in the distance - beautiful at night when its all lit up and the very tip of the Eiffel Tower if you stood on your tiptoes! The view of the Pantheon was obscured by scaffolding which was a shame. Room was small in comparison to hotels in other countries but it was perfectly adequate for our needs and the balcony gave additional room. It was decorated beautifully - the walls were covered with cloth as opposed to paper and gave it a real boudoir feel. Bathroom clean and room service came every day to replace towels and toiletries.

Service - from start to finish the hotel staff were very helpful with all our enquiries. There was a problem with the trains on the weekend we went so the staff looked into the problem when we were to make our return journey to the airport.

Location - great location. 10mins walk from met station (slow pace with suitcases). 5mins walk to the heart of the Latin Quarter (many reasonable places to eat here). 10mins walk to Sacre Coeur area - very bustling and full of places to eat and drink. Prices reasonable for food but very expensive for drinks if not drinking wine. Beers are about 9-10euros for a pint! This was the case everywhere - it was cheaper to get a beer at the airport!!
It was easy to visit everywhere from here and was perfect to visit all the main attractions.

Only 2 negatives: 1) The breakfast was expensive for what it was and 2) there was a wasp problem on the balcony where we wanted to eat it. We understood that there were flowers and it was summer but there was about 10 that we were fighting off.

Overall, I would definitely recommend this hotel. It is very expensive but this is going rate for a nice hotel in Paris. If you can treat yourself then do it, the balcony is a lovely little addition to your parisian experience!

Room Tip: No.61 - it is facing the Pantheon and has a big balcony with table and chairs - beautiful!!
