“Ideal base - great little Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2013

This is a great little hotel. Rooms are on the small side but perfectly ok for a short break, comfortable bed and very clean throughout. There is a little bit of street noise but hey, you are in the centre of Paris, it didnt spoil our stay in any way.
This hotel is ideally located on the edge of the Latin Quarter, within a 5 min walk of the Metro, Notre Dame and the river, also only 10 mins walk from the RER for easy transfer to CDG airport. There are plenty of bars and restaurants in the area although watch out for 'happy hour' pricing to get a reasonably priced beer!
I would definitely recommend staying here and will stay here again.

We stayed 8 nights here in May of 2013 and hit a home run with its excellent location. The ND Cathedral is 1000' away, and many good restaurants are nearby. Our "comfort" room was tiny but the bigger distraction is the subway that passes underneath the hotel from 0600 to 0100. The rumbling kept me awake some nights. The breakfast, at ~$15 ea., is very basic and we ate here just the once. The woman reception staff were great, the men more like toll takers. If you book early in the season the rates here are VG when one considers Paris prices overall. I'd return.

Upon arriving in Paris, my sister and I stayed for 2 nights in May 2013 before moving to an apartment for a week stay. We were very happy with our stay here. The staff was the best part. Always very friendly and helpful. The rooms were quite small but we were expecting that. Overall, the rooms were clean, had nice linens and good size bathrooms.

The location is excellent. The neighborhood is very charming and it is a few minutes walk to Notre Dame Cathedral. Agora St Germain was a great start to a fantastic trip to Paris!

Well Done!

We had a good stay here, rounding off a short break in France with two nights in Paris. The rooms are small but we expected that and the breakfast was extra but we knew that in advance.
The hotel was clean and well decorated and the room was fine. The reception staff were excellent and very helpful with restaurant recommendations. They all had good English. The breakfast was OK for 11 euro. The location is very good near the river and a short walk to Notre Dame.

We were very happy with our stay at this hotel. It is nicely renovated and well located in the Latin Quarter. The reception staff was very helpful and offerred useful information. Our room was classed as a comfort room. It was recently renovated and the bathroom was beautiful. It was easy to adjust the temperature in our room and we slept well. We did not eat breakfast there (11 euros). We enjoyed walking to the multitude of nearby cafes.

Had a wonderful experience staying at this Hotel 19 - 20th March. The reception staff on duty could not have been more helpful resolving my error. The issue was sorted with total professionalism.
Set in an ideal location, minutes walk to Notre Dame and Batobus, all major attractions are easily accessible. Lots of lovely eateries on the doorstep from cheap to expensive, so no need for taxi or metro journeys.
Hotel is very nice, clean comfortable rooms with all facilities one needs for a city break.

I stayed at this hotel for a week. The room was a reasonable size for a Paris hotel.
It was in a good location, 5 minutes walk to Notre Dame.
The staff were especially good, they all spoke English happily and they were helpful.
I would stay there again.
