The location could not be better! We wanted a quiet room, and got a really quiet room with a wonderful view towards the Arenes de Lutece. The room was clean, but small, and looked as if it needed some work. The staff was friendly and service-minded. The location is fantastic, just a short walking distance from jardin des Plantes, the Pantheon, jardin du Luxembourg, and other attractions. It is situated very close to the old, charming, lively area around Place de Contrescarpe and rue Mouffetard, where we visited several really nice cafes, restaurants and shops.
