“Latin Quarter with a smile”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

Excellent location, even if in the summertime the neighborhood is somewhat overcrowded, hotel breakfast with a mix of continental and classic french with delicious bread and croissants, clean, functional rooms of various sizes, fairly new bathrooms, and most of all with a very friendly and English-speaking staff, at breakfast as well as in the reception, where they always meet you with a genuine smile. Have stayed there several times and will come back.

Dear Lars Georg JJ,

What a pleasure to discover your comment!!

September is the high season, and Saint-Germain des Près is one of the most attractive areas of Paris. that is why it was a little overcrowded.
Come in August, you will visit another city! Paris is so different without Parisians and less tourists.

We thank you for your loyalty and we will be pleased to welcome you back to Hotel De Seine.

Best Regards,

If you are looking for a charming hotel that is clean and well situated, look no further. I loved the Hotel de Seine. The room was small but perfect for a short stay in Paris. The front desk staff were very helpful and knowledgeable - made some great restaurant recos, The bed was super comfy and the room very quiet. And best of all, it's walking distance to all the great shopping, restaurants, cafés and sights that Paris has to offer. I will definitely stay again.

My wife and I stayed here recently for 3 nights. The room was well appointed, clean, and larger than the hotel rooms we had had in Paris on previous visits. The hotel is well located in the vibrant St Germaine de Pres area with its numerous cafes and restaurants. It was also within easy walking distance to many major attractions such a the Louvre and the Musee D'Orsay. Without exception the staff were friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. While it is located in a bustling, vibrant cafe area, nightime noise was never a problem. We would definitely stay here again if we return to Paris.

I have fifty years of staying in Paris hotels. Now that I can finally afford five star versions, I find the three star hotels to have more charm and more interesting location, regardless of price. One of those great three star hotels is Hotel de Seine near the intersection of Rue de Buci and Rue de Seine, the heart of St. Germaine de Pres. It is friendly, clean and comfortable. They make you feel appreciated. They will remember you on your next visit. You really can't ask for more in a 3 star hotel in Paris. There are great bistros and street markets a stone's throw away. There are fifty good three star hotels around Paris, but I would choose this one.

Room Tip: The 6th floor rooms have less headroom but are farther from the street noise. Ask for an inside room...

We loved our stay at the Hotel De Seine a few weeks ago. The staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms are very nice and, perhaps best of all, is the hotel's location in one of the best areas of Paris. Nearly all sites and entertainment are within easy walking distance of this hotel. We highly recommend it.

Was travelling alone from Lyon. Had 2 nights in Paris before return to US. Hotel is superbly located. It is walking distance to many of the attractions e.g. Louvre and Notre Dame. Seine is close by and if you walk along it for half hour or so you will reach the eiffel tower! Great cafes and restaurants for breakfast Lunch and Dinner. The Hotel staff are absolutely fantastic. They give you great advice on best ways to see paris, restaurants and wine and cheese shopping. Be sure to visit Le Comptoir for at lunch or dinner at least once. No reservations. Very reasonably priced for one of the top ranking chef's of Paris
The hotel is close to Carrefour a grocery store and is close to metro as well as bus stops
Enjoy Paris. One of the best cities I have travelled

A friend and I spent last week at this hotel and enjoyed our stay there. As other reviewers have said, if you like to walk, a great many sights are within walking distance. There is also no shortage of places to either grab a bite to eat or drink a glass of wine and people watch. There is also a grocery store a block away.As two older women, we felt completely safe in this neighborhood.
We ordered a la carte for breakfast as we didn't need the whole spread. The service was cheerfully helpful.
The only difficulties I had were the following: the wi-fi did not work for 2 days; the hair dryer will dry your hair but it was not possible to use it for styling purposes; if your room faces the street and you have your window open at night there are daily, early morning trash/recycling pickups which are rather noisy; I found the tub slippery to climb in and out of.
Having said all that, I would stay at the Hotel de Seine again.

Dear Justshoba,

We thank you for taking time to write a comment on Trip Advisor.
Saint-Germain Des Près is very central, which is helpful for a visit of Paris.
We took note of all your remarks concerning your room and the hotel.
We had a wifi problem last week and we had to change our wifi box. That is why it lasted two days. The only solution was to go in a hotel next door and use their wifi or to use Internet at reception desk. We totally understand the trouble it caused you and we are sincerely sorry for that.

It will be a pleasure to welcome you back to Hotel De Seine for your next Parisian stay.

Kind Regards,
