“Very Pleasant experience in Paris!”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

I stayed at the Hotel de Seine in late January for four nights with my sister and daughter who was celebrating her 21st birthday. I chose this hotel based on Trip Advisor and was not disappointed . We arrived early morning at our hotel, planning to drop bags and sit in a cafe, and were thrilled to learn they had a room for us. What a treat after a long flight! The hotel lobby was charming yet small, and the elevator is very tiny but functional. Our triple room was on the second floor with a view of the street. Charming, but as we found at that evening, extremely noisy. After a sleepless night, I immediately approached the front desk with a plea for any room other than the second floor. Tristan, at the desk, was very understanding, considerate, and extremely helpful in setting us up in a quiet room. He even sent up coffee to our room. We moved to room 61, a beautiful room on the 6th floor with a lovely view that included the Eiffel Tower. This room was perfect, quiet, and just lovely , and so perfect for my daughter's birthday. Plenty big enough for 3 people, and the beds were very comfortable. Loved the room! Every morning we called down for coffee, which arrived in our room very quickly and was delicious. Service was excellent, and the hotel staff could not have been nicer. Another favorite - the location was a 10 minute walk to the river, and not much further to the Louvre.. and numerous cafes and lovely shops. We ate at the corner cafe every morning, plus bought pastries at Pauls on the corner.. and found the neighborhood to be perfect for exploring. Cannot recommend this hotel enough, or the location,and the very kind staff, especially Tristan who saved our holiday . Cannot wait to return to the Hotel de Seine.

Dear Travelingtheworldd27,

We would like to thank you for your nice comment about Hotel De Seine.

All the staff was pleased to read that you enjoyed your stay with us. Feedback are the best way to improve our services. Welcoming and taking care of our guests are our main priorities and your well being is our best reward.
Saint-Germain des Près is a lively area and it can be noisy at night, even if the rue de Seine is quite calm usually. In this case, if the planning allows us to do, we can propose you another room.

We hope to welcome you again at Hotel De Seine for your birthday maybe...

Sincerely Yours,

Hotel de Seine lies smack in the middle of Saint Germain Des Prés, and this is perhaps its biggest plus. That is, if you like the area, of course - a very charming area with old buildings in narrow streets, close to parks and museums, lots of shops and restaurants, close to the Seine, the small islands, nightlife, daylife etc. A very convenient location, and a hotel that is both nice and affordable.
Like so many other small Parisian hotels, the interior is typical and nice, but not very modern. The rooms are ok, clean and with the amenities you'd expect. The staff and service are friendly and helpful. They serve a modest breakfast at an extra charge (go to Boulangerie Paul down the road instead).
Would definitely stay again.

Dear Cassiel_Agrippa,

We would like to thank you for posting a comment about Hotel De Seine.

Saint-Germain des Près is a very nice district and we are glad to be located in such a lively area.
We wanted to keep an old Parisian atmosphere, that explains decoration of the rooms. We hope that you found yours quiet and comfortable. Concerning breakfast, we took note of your remark and we will see how we can improve it.

All the staff was pleased to read that you enjoyed your stay with us and it will be a pleasure to welcome you again during your next stay in Paris.

The hotel was terrific, clean and charming, and the service was exceptional, especially Tristan. Our return to NYC was delayed after Hurricane Sandy and my husband and our two young children had to relocate to a hotel. The staff was terrific. The location couldn't have been better with lots of great restaurants just steps away.

Pictures on website represent hotel very accurately. Wonderful bedding, teapot in room, cable, huge bath/shower w/towel warmer. Accomodating, friendly staff. Small, quiet. Yet right out the door is bustling Parisian 24 hr neighborhood! Couldn't be a more perfect location.

Room Tip: Ask for twin room and they will make the beds into a KING!

Saint-Germain Des Près is a very nice area, full of shops and restaurants, and a central location. We are pleased to be at the heart of a lively area, while remaining in calm. It is very important for us. Our customers can go outside and enjoy the Parisian life, before coming back to the hotel and having a good sleep. Days are long in Paris, a good sleep is necessary.

We hope to welcome you again at Hotel De Seine for a next stay in Paris.

I stayed here with my mom for about 5 days and we loved it here. Fantastic location, good-sized room, sweet amenities, great staff. My mom and I booked a triple room for the two of us - we had been traveling together for a while so decided to pay a little more for a LOT more personal space for a little while. The room, especially compared to other double rooms in Paris, felt HUGE, with plenty of tall windows and high ceilings. It was just so easy to stay here - we'll definitely be back.

We thank you for taking time to write a comment about Hotel De Seine.

We are all pleased to read that you enjoyed your stay with us.
You are totaly right concerning size of rooms in Paris. As we are in old city, buildings are full of small places. At Hotel De Seine, we are lucky to propose correct sized rooms. And choosing a triple room for two is the best way to assure the personnal space!
Saint-Germain Des Près is a wonderfull area, and the lively rue de Buci is perfect for cafés and restaurants.

We would be glad to welcome you again at Hotel de Seine for your next stay in Paris.

My wife and I spent 4 nights in the Hotel de Seine. We informed the hotel on booking that the occasion was our 25th wedding anniversary, and the staff reserved us a really nice, cosy room overlooking the street. The hotel offers clean, decent sized rooms, with pleasant helpful front office staff but most of all it offers an excellent location, set in the heart of all the hustle and bustle, night and day, of the St Germaine district. I would recommend this hotel anytime to anyone wishing to spend some fantastic days in the heart of Paris.
