“Lovely room, but overall hotel needs to be better”
Reviewed August 4, 2013 via mobile

I stayed 2 nights. The location is pretty good and the room (top floor) good too.

But a couple of things need sorting.

No drink making facilities in the room.

Having to iron my shirt in the entrance to the restaurant in front of guests having breakfast is just stupid! They had to meander past me to get through the entrance - I felt really embarrassed. Not even a room to iron things in - genuinely I was shocked at this arrangement.

We wanted to explore Paris after checking out. We were shown to the luggage room and left there with no supervision - in other words, we had total access to everyone's luggage and this really concerned us and made us think twice about leaving our own. This wasn't isolated as when we got there other clients were there on their own too.

So, great location. Lovely room but just overall a lack of attention to things that would have made our stay more in keeping with other hotels. (If I'm honest it felt a little like a posh hostel, which is a shame bearing in mind the decor etc)

This gem of a hotel has it all - great staff, rooms and location. The staff were both friendly and helpful. Our room was comfortable and clean. The location of the hotel is truly excellent. It is in a bustling square - with three busy cafe bistros. I would definitely return.

great location, friendly people and service, room smal but very clean, well done breakfast, but next door there are 3 great cafes from 7am to midinight, just missed minibar in the room. The place of Sorbonne is very calm at the university holidays. I recommend the hotel without doubts to my friends.

We went for the cheapest rooms, small but have everything you need; free wifi, excellent bathroom, air conditioning (vital as it was 30c!) and the room very clean. We stayed two nights and for that length of time it was perfect. If I was staying longer I would want a bigger room. (Having said that, our children had a twin room, which was bigger than ours!) We've stayed in many hotels in Paris and this was definitely one of the best. We always stay in or near the St Germain area because we like it so much and this hotel is close enough to walk. The hotel is not on a busy road but on a lovely square with a few bars / restaurants, perfect for that cold beer to start our holiday off!
This was the first time we showed our children Paris and they loved it! (Especially the guided cycle tour.) Thank you Hotel Select! We would stay here again.

We just loved this hotel. The people were very nice, the room was comfortable, and the breakfast was good. The one downside would be that the cabbies don't know about it, so remember to take the address with you!

Room Tip: We had a winter garden view room. This was a nice room, we could see Sacre-Coeur from our room.

The Hotel is very good located. The staff was very friendly. The only negative thing to say is that our room was very tiny, it was very clean - nothing to say - but very small and dark. We had a room with view to the reception.
But I would recommend the hotel to other friends!!

Very nice and clean rooms. Very friendly staff EXCEPT the guy in the reception WHO was on duty Saturday night the 13th of July and Sunday night the 14th of July. We really don't know why he has got this kind of job - he couldn't care less about the guest!!! What a shame as all his collegues where doing such a good job - unfortunately we remember him and his terrible attitude! The breakfast expensive for what it is - don't have breakfast at the hotel but go next door to one of the cafés.
