“Fantastic hotel! We'll be back!”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

We only got back today from a four night stay at this lovely hotel and felt compelled to sing its praises!
From start to finish we had a wonderful little stay! - the very pleasant staff went over and above to make sure we had a great time including ensuring a full continental breakfast was ready too well before our 6.45 pickup to the airport! Our boarding passes were printed for us to save worrying about printing them at the airport and the shuttle bus contacted by the gentleman who worked on reception to ensure it would pick us up on time all done without any prompting from my fiancé and I.

The location is very good, 10/15 minutes walk from the very reliable batobus in walking distance of some very Parisian (and reasonable) restaurants and attractions such as le jardin des planets and the Pantheon!

The welcome that we received at this hotel was ten out of ten and the the service second to none for our purposes- a little romantic break we found it to be one of Paris's little gems! :-)

Fantastique! Merci beau coup!

Visited in June 2013. The hotel is close to the Les Gobelins metro station and the hotel is in a nice enough area of Paris.

Positives
- Great location, within walking distance of Jardin Du Luxumburg and the Latin Quarter
- Friendly staff
- Lift to all floors
- Comfy, clean and spacious rooms
- Free Wifi
- Good travel links to all areas of paris via the metro

Negatives
- The shower we had was over the bath which had no shower screen or curtain meaning the bathroom got rather wet when showering
- Common areas of the hotel seem cramped
- No A/C but the room we had was easily ventilated and stayed cool enough.
- The tramps just down the road.

modest hotel selected because of relative proximity to Gare Montparnasse where I had to go four times for various encounters. It is clean, very small rooms which would have not worked if there had been two people, and as the case in so many Parisian hotels, no air conditioning, especially missed during the 37-38C days I was there. Wifi did work well. Hotel was barely acceptable to me but in a pinch would return if there were not more attractive options.

A girlfriend and I stayed at this hotel through a Groupon offer: Three Night Stay with Eurostar tickets and breakfast.
It was FABULOUS! Very helpful and friendly staff on Reception no matter what time of day (or night) we arrived back. Guided us as to which Metro lines to use to avoid lots of stairs whilst carrying a suitcase when we had to go home.
Hotel room very clean; beds very comfortable; Air conditioning very effective whilst the temperature outside was 35+ degrees. Was able to have an uninterrupted night's sleep thanks to it. Shower (no bath) - temperature easily controlled and force of water strong. Slightly compact cubicle. Fine for a girl, but maybe a bit of a squeeze for a 6 foot tall/broad shouldered chap?
Buffet continental breakfast: tasty and filling. If we ate before 8:00am, the breakfast room was fairly empty. After 8:00 there was a small amount of congestion whilst we all tried to access the goodies on offer.
I would thorughly recommend this hotel. Good location and made to feel very welcome. Made no difference that we were there on a "deal".

Room Tip: Rooms on the 6th floor have air conditioning

What a great little place....super location....walking distance to several Metro Stations, walking distance to Rue Mouffetard for strolling, shopping, people watching, lunch and dinner ....restaurants are reasonable compared with most Paris places! Rooms are clean, updated bathrooms(tub , no shower), breakfast with croissants, rolls, ham, cheese, jam, cereal, yogurt ....way more than expected. Very friendly staff, drop of luggage early and leave after check out, too! Safe to walk home at night

Reasonably priced hotel in the 5th arrondissement. Very nice clean rooms..and a beautiful bathroom. Great location by the subway and a moderate walk to Notre Dame. Easy access to all locations in Paris. The front desk staff were wonderfully helpful. There is a self service laundry just up the street. The breakfast was just fine with a variety of breads and cheeses. I highly recommend this small but lovely hotel.
