Recent guest reviews
We have stayed in this hotel two times. Last year, we moved from another hotel to this one, and this year we booked it again because it left a lasting impression. For the sake of efficiency I will list the pros and cons of both stays for a more thorough review. Pros: Friendly and amenable staff. Last year when we walked in off the street, unhappy with our other hotel, and were greeted by some of the nicest hotel personnel we have meet in our trips to France. Both the young man and lady were very informative, gave us an amazing deal, had the friendliest demeanor, and we got a great room. This year we didn't see either of them until our last day, where the young man remembered us from last year. I have to say that is a big plus for a hotel and it was for this one. Location: The location of this hotel can't be beat. It is located on the St Germain area with a subway entrance just across the street and the most delicious French bakery on the opposite corner. It is so good it always has a line in the morning. It is also surrounded by shops, cafes and within easy walking distance to some of the bigger shops in Paris. So truly fabulous location! Quiet: This is a fairly active area of Paris, but not the most active and although, this year's room faced the street, it was surprisingly quiet both for both stays. We did have someone with a new born baby next door, but you could hardly hear the crying which says much about the hotel's insulation. Pro & Con: Rooms: This is where our experience last year and this year differ. The rooms all contain safes, a small refrigerator with some refreshments and are air conditioned. Last year's room was on the very top floor,and although the lift stopped one floor down and we had to lug our luggage up and down a floor, it was a much better room. It was bigger, had a larger restroom with an area to place toiletries, a tub and shower. This year's room, which we booked earlier, was smaller. My friend had to move furniture out of the way to have space. The bed on both sides almost touched the walls and the bathroom only had a shower, no tub and absolutely no room to put our makeup. It was a much different room and it actually made us reconsider if we would stay there again. We have stayed in boutique hotels before and we are familiar with the small rooms, so I guess the disappointment was the big difference between the rooms. Overall, I think this is a good hotel and recommend staying here because it is well kept up and the price is pretty good. It has some amenities and, believe me, the location makes a big difference.
Very convenient location.1 minute from the nearest metro station and 15 minutes walking distance from the Saint Germain church. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The room is comfortable and clean. Good value for money.
The hotel has a great location next to a subway stop, centered between Notre Dame, the Catacombs, Luxembourg Palace and the Eiffel Tower, all within walking easy distance. The only downside is the breakfast options and the room size.
Hotel Aramis was a good location central to most things and easy access to Metro. Rooms were small but very clean and comfortable and we still managed to get 8 of us in for a late drink. Staff friendly and helpful. Would recommend this hotel.
The hotel's location is ideal if you are traveling with young children. Jardin de Luxembourg is a short walk away, and the hotel is across the street from the metro. The room was super clean. The perplexing thing about our particular room was a large armoire that took up a lot of space but was not configured to store clothes or luggage. It essentially turned a nice sized room into a cramped room, unnecessarily. It is worth asking if all the rooms have this bizarre armoire. It's not a big deal, but every square meter of space in a Parisian hotel room is worth preserving, right?
The people at the front desk were very helpful during our stay. The location is great and there is an excellent bakery next door that is very convenient for a breakfast before touring the city. The only issue is that we were lacking any bathroom towels one afternoon and had to inquire at the front desk. Apparently, few rooms received towels that day, which is somewhat strange.
Great location, very nice neighborhood. We were able to eat at several of the places around the hotel, there were some great shops as well. Close to the metro, walkable to Luxembourg Gardens. The rooms were a standard European size, very clean and very friendly staff.
I was pleasantly surprised by the Best Western Aramis Saint-Germain. It is a reasonably small hotel however the location is great not far from the Metro station. It is in one of the shopping strips and supermarkets are not far away. The staff were a real highlight. Very welcoming and helpful. Went out of their way to help. Only negative was the breakfast on offer. I have gluten/lactose intolerance so not a lot to eat for breakfast as mainly croissants/pastries ect. I enjoyed my stay and would stay again and have recommended to others.
The building was an older building but the room, though small, was clean, well organized and just fine for a business trip. The location was excellent being just across the street from the metro stop Saint-Placide. There were plenty of very nice restaurants in the area.
Room was cozy and very clean, well appointed. Location is ideal. In the 6th arr. and right by a metro station. Many shops in the area, and decent restaurants right nearby. Will consider staying here again. Staff was very friendly.
