Reviewed April 10, 2013 via mobile

Booked for 3 nights stay here tonight is my second. Location wise, close to les gobelin metro, 10 mins walk to place 'd italia( anoter metro station) which has more lines available. Toilet is spacios, comes with heater which is a plus pt. bed could have been newer. Breakfast was sufficient. Value for money. Would recommend this hotel

Warm welcome from the brilliant English speaking staff.We booked on Groupon,so were happy to find this a pleasant & compact 6 storey Hotel in good area.Dont make our mistake- we went to Les Gobelins Metro.....nearest & BEST Metro is St.Marcel-line 5[orange] only 20 mins from Gare du Nord.Also,D'Austerlitz for easy main line to Versailles.both 10 mins brisk walk.Good Boulangerie on doorstep,plus supermarkets.
Roomtip-we had a dodgy plug,so couldn't charge phone!Quiet at back of Hotel, we had a nice 6th floor room.
Breakfast is adequate-we tried Breakfast in room-excellent-prompt and generous!!
Overall,rooms are clean ,bathroom spotless and perfect for short stay.Good value.Recommended

Room Tip: Go for an early breakfast as can get busy in small breakfast area at weekends. Helfull staff.Do Ver...

We stayed 4 nights in this hotel. When we check in late in the night (at 12.15 a.m), the reception clerk were very pleasant. The hotel location is about 200 metres from Les Gobelins Metro Station and there's bus stops near the hotel. It's perfect location for our short stay in Paris. As we didn't spend much time at the hotel, it's great for us...I think the room's not soundproofed, there's tv, heaters (1 in the room and 1 in the bathroom), writing desk, cupboard and plenty of hot water in the bathroom..The breakfast's standard...served in a small breakfast room... We'll stay at this hotel again.

I stayed at the hotel for a 5 day/4 night trip in February.

Location:
The hotel is in an excellent location, being in the Latin Quarter, with a boatload of restaurants and things to do nearby. It's also a very short, maybe block or 2 walk to the Metro, which makes for easy transportation. The hotel itself is boutique style, small and quaint, which I loved.

Service & Breakfast:
The staff were exceptionally friendly (even to this non-French speaking American) and super helpful. They had a breakfast each day included in our rate so we took full advantage. It was in a rather small room, but we never had to wait more than 10 minutes for a table even at peak time. The food was the same every morning (a basket of bread/croissants, yogurt, meat and cheese, cereal, etc) and maybe not the most extensive of breakfasts but certainly adequate. On day 1 there was Nutella packets and I kicked myself for not stocking up for the rest of the week as they dissapeared from the buffet after the first day.

Rooms:

The room itself was pretty tiny but reading the reviews, it was my expectation. The TV only had one English channel so if you don't speak French, I hope you enjoy BBC! Strangely, the volume was limited to "20" which was very low and we had to be really quiet to even hear it. The bathroom was quite large relative to the size of the room. The bath did not have a shower curtain and was a tub with a removable showerhead so it was also a bit difficult not to get water all over the place.

Overall, it was a wonderful place to stay for our short trip and we didn't mind the small rooms as we didn't spend much time in the hotel anyway. The staff was lovely and the boutique-y style of the hotel was perfect for a short stay in Paris.

We spent our anniversary here 28th Feb to 3rd March 2013.

This traditional Haussman designed hotel was in an ideal spot being on a beautiful wide Parisian boulevard. And was just on the edge of the Latin Quarter.
The street was extremely clean and was very family friendly with locals out walking with their children well into the evenings. And the pavements (sidewalks) were cleaned.
Yes, the breakfast room was a little pokey, but there was very little waiting for a table.

The hotel was clean and very well situated. I would very much recommend.

We booked this as a groupon last year which included everything so we didnt know what the hotel would be like . We new that it wouldnt be the one beckham is staying in , but even though it was small and they had no hotel bar as stated , and the breakfast room was not big enough for all guests, we just went to mcdonalds which is down the road . Even though the room was small ,it was very clean and comfy and in a parisian way the smallness did not affect us as much as it would lets say in another city .this hotel has an ideal location in the latin quarter , just a short ride on the metro to the attractions ,lovely staff and a lovely city which is a very laidback place,not like the london rat race, overall top place to rest your head !!

Just returned from a 3 night break at this hotel. The day reception staff very helpful. My room was clean & looks to have been recently refurbished. Breakfast room is small but there was always tables spare (might not be the case at a weekend) and breakfast more than adequate. Hotel is in a good location with 2 metro stations within a 5 minute walk, restaurants & cafes nearby. Wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. (Solo traveller).
