Hotel Cluny Sorbonne
Ranked #922 of 1,804 Hotels in Paris
Reviewed September 11, 2012

Yes, I agree with the outstanding location but I have stayed at several hotels in Paris that were in great neighborhoods. My husband and I stayed here last weekend and I got little sleep! It was warm in Paris and without air conditioning it was not easy to rest at night. Our room on 5th faced a courtyard and everyone had their windows open to try to get a little breeze so all I heard till 3 am was coughing and talking! The room is small -but workable. It was clean. We stayed at a hotel for less money that was modern and had air condition the weekend before on Boulevard St. Germaine. The staff were very friendly, but because of the poor night sleep, I would hesitate to stay here unless it is late autumn or winter. I wish they had ceiling fans!!!

Stayed here again, after many previous stays. Good value, right by the Sorbonne and just around corner from Place Sorbonne, which is full of cafes ready for breakfast. I reckon this spot cant be beaten, it is so atmospheric and easy to explore the whole Latin Quarter and to get across the Seine to Notre Dame etc.
Yes, the rooms are small and the bathroom tiny, so dont stay here if you are somewhat large. But this is right in the centre of Latin Quarter, and I wouldnt really consider staying anywhere else.!
By the way, I found the beds really comfortable. Dont have breakfast here - go out to the square and sit in the sun/fresh air.

Room Tip: Noisy on the street facing rooms but personally I like a bit of life and outside noise. If you want...

This was our second stay here. The first one was last year. The hotel lies in our favourite part of Paris and is very close the Luxembourg and St Michel RER stations. The rooms are small and basic. The only downsides are the mattress, which is a bit uncomfortable, and the shower, which is not design to prevent getting most of the bathroom wet.

We stayed here for four nights. It was a small room and bathroom, but very clean and affordable at around 80 Euros per night. The location is great! We walked to the Louvre, Notre Dame, Pantheon, Saint Chapelle, Luxembourg Gardens, etc. It is also very near the St Michel and Luxembourg RER stops which is nice. The first night we ate at a restaurant right around the corner and got their meat and cheese plate. It was delicious! Remember to bring the correct adaptor for France if you need to plug in electric items. The room was a bit noisy as we were right on a street. The staff spoke English and was helpful.

Our first trip to Paris Feb, 2011 and certainly not the last. We booked the Cluny hotel located in the 5th arrondissement in the latin quarter, we booked a standard room without balcony, however we e-mailed the hotel prior to request a room either overlooking Boulevarde Saint Germain or Boulevarde Saint Michel. On arrival we were allocated a room overlooking both & with a balcony, rooms are small but adequate as are most hotel rooms in Paris.
We chose to opt out of the continental breakfast, however there are so many cafe's, restaurants & bars around, eating & drinking was not a problem
The location & facilities around the hotel made it perfect for sightseeing, we used the local buses & metro station is right outside the hotel. Very busy, bustling area, day & night.
We also found the French really friendly and helpful, we caught a bus from the hotel to Gare du Nord train station on our return journey, half way we were all asked to vacate the bus due to a demonstration, not knowing where we were, the French people on the bus showed us where the nearest metro station was & where we needed to be.

Room Tip: We were allocated the room directly above the Cluny hotel sign. If you want peace & quiet, traf...

Good location in a quiet street in Quartier Latin, great for sightseeing. The room was clean enough but very small (the bathroom is so cramped it's almost difficult to use it). Basic breakfast (coffee and a croissant). All in all definitely good value for money.

Here for a couple of nights only--we'd definitely book in for longer next time. Staff were charming and helpful, doing an Internet search for us (when the Wifi was temporarily down in our room). The room was small but who spends much time in a hotel room in Paris? Loved the location, right opposite the Sorbonne. Excellent value.
