a bit expensive but very nice

I only stayed in the hotel for one night but the location was fairly close to the city center. The room was beautiful and very clean but a little more expensive than I was hoping to pay.

Rest your head here

Good location - not far from metro and only 15 mins walk from RER (to CDG). Room clean and bathroom well insulated from room. Minor hiccough with power cut and two fire alarms.... but these things happen! Good place to spend the night in between long days of sightseeing. Plenty of restaurants nearby even though it was August when many businesses are shut. Staff were very pleasant and helpful - stored our luggage on departure day.

Buy a Paris Museum pass ( 2, 4 or 7 days) which gives privileged access (skip the long queues) to numerous museums and if accompanied by an 18-26 yr old EU resident who gets in free, they can join you in quick queue.

Great little hotel

Located in the Latin quarter, close to the Luxembourg gardens and Pantheon, it's a great place to stay. Good value, comfortable, close to nice cafes and shops. We ate delicious pastries from a shop nearby and enjoyed taking walks through the beautiful streets nearby. This is a great place to stay in Paris.

The Boulangerie De Monge near the hotel has amazing pastries. Try the macarons if you see them.

Five great nights in Paris

While the Cardinal is 3-star, the staff make it seem like a 5-star. Located within a five-minute walk to one of the best food markets to which we have ever been. And a really fantastic restaurant within 40 meters. Well worth the stay at a great value. While the rooms were smallish, the housekeeping made up for the size with great service.

Wonderful Parisian Hotel

My adult daughter and I stayed at Hotel Cardinal for a week and the hotel lived up to its great reputation. The staff was extremely helpful, the rooms were very clean and the bathroom as perfect. I would definitely stay here again. It was close to great restaurants, cafes, shopping. Miss it already!

Don't fear riding the metro!! It's safe and safes a lot of time on your feet. The machine offer several languages & it's 1.70 e. (perhaps I wouldn't ride it late at night though)

Off the beaten path

I chose this hotel because it's near friends who live in Paris, and the area is a residential one. The hotel is ok, no problems. A plus for me is that there are several bakeries nearby and a Starbucks and that's how I took breakfast. There are two Metro stops not too far away and a railroad station about 15 minutes by foot.
