We found the location of this hotel to be perfect for our first trip to Paris. The small pedestrian only street is steps away from Place St Michel which is always busy & buzzing with activity.
Yes there is a homeless man at the end of the street, he came & went twice during our week long stay. He is harmless,he never approached us and was usually sleeping when we passed by. We saw a few homeless people in the Latin Quarter, none we're begging but were obviously homeless with all their belongings next to them.
I liked coming back to our quiet little street after a day exploring Paris, while still being in the centre of the Latin Quarter & St Germain. Our room had a street view on the 1st floor & I can honestly say we only heard a faint noise from the bar across the road once. We slept with the windows closed, noise could be an issue with the windows open.
It was an easy walk to so many attractions, Sainte-Chapelle, Notre Dame, Isle Saint Louis, The Seine are only minutes away. The Louvre, Tulleries Gardens, Musee D'Orsay, Luxembourg Gardens, The Pantheon can all be reached by foot in 20 minutes or less.
St Michel & St Michel Notre Dame metro stops and the RER train station to the airport are all around the corner in Place St Michel.
Cross the bridge to the other side of the Seine and walk through the beautiful Marais district, so close but so different to the Latin Quarter.
Our room was a bit smaller than I expected, but I think they used the space available wisely. Eg,There was a small set of shelves in the corner next to the wardrobe that was handy.
We had 2 large suitcases as well as 2 carry ons, we found places to put them out of the way. Mine went on the luggage rack under the window, my husband unpacked his then put it out of the way behind the door & the 2 carry ons fitted next to the bedside tables. Once the luggage was sorted we found the space quite comfortable. We had a very large queen bed with a super comfortable mattress & pillows, there was only just enough space between the end of the bed and the wall to get past, but there was ample room on both sides of the bed to comfortably dress.
The very large flat screen TV was an odd choice for a small room, watching TV was a bit like being at the cinema. It still makes me laugh when I think of it.
The small bathroom was functional, the only thing I disliked was no door on the shower, it had a fixed glass screen half way across.
The air conditioning was quiet and worked well.
Good free Wifi
The staff always greeted us when we were coming & going, they were non intrusive but helpful when we needed advice.
In short I was happy with my hotel choice it had been recently renovated but still retained some charm, everything was new, clean & in working order. The location was perfect, we were able to easily see a lot of Paris including a trip to Versailles in a week. We like to stay in small hotels when we travel rather than a large chain, if your preference is a large chain hotel,this hotel would probably not be for you.
