We stayed at the Central Saint Germain in April 2012. The location is exceptional...located one block from the intersection of Boulevard St. Michel and Boulevard St. Germaine. You are always within walking distance of the excitement of the Latin Quarter, as well as a walk to Notre-Dame and even the Louvre. La Sorbonne is right outside your window. Also the Underground/Tube/Subway is one block away which is key in Paris.
Thus the location is absolutely fantastic! However....
1) the room we had for 3 people (Room 502) would have been small for two adults. It was nicely appointed but don't expect to spread out.
2) the front desk people - as with most service people in Paris - just don't get it. How about a smile? Some warmth? Empathy? Although they did their job, it seemed to be a bother and you wondered if you were getting real help or an easy answer to get rid of you and your question. The owners would have people crawling all over the place if the front desk staff were happy and helpful.
Luckily, when you are in Paris, you are not looking to spend time in the hotel but out in the city so the primary strength of this hotel - the location - saves the day. BTW, it is not cheap. The room for three people ran $315 dollars per night!
