Hôtel Cardinal Rive Gauche

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This hotel is in a quiet neighborhood, within an easy walk to the metro. The staff were professional, courteous, and went the extra mile to make our stay as smooth as possible. We took the time to talk to them about our lives and theirs, and learned a good deal more about the French than we would have otherwise. The rooms and bathrooms were compact, but immaculately maintained and plenty comfortable. This was our first trip to Paris and this hotel contributed to a wonderful experience.

The staff was so friendly and very helpful. Spoke very good English and very understanding of our needs. Not far from a main Metro line that goes directly to most main attractions. I would highly recommend this place.

Bed wasn't very comfortable, but the hotel was nice and clean overall and service was good.

The hotel was overall good for this price. It is only a few minutes walk from the nearest subway. There are supermarkets and some nice local restaurants, cake shops within 10 minutes walk. There is also a local fresh market which was really fun browsing around.

Expect nothing fancy Hotel is convenient to restaurants, metro, and attractions. It is a great value for Paris.

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.

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 location is a bit off the beaten path, but the rooms are very spacious and clean. Definitely a good value!

Not sure what three stars means in Europe but definitely Not three same as in USA. Old but They try to keep it up

Its really nice experience very clean, good staff and peaceful location. I think this is the best place. Good transportation of trains to the locaiton from any part of paris. Special thanks to Night Staff...he was really good friendly and helpful.

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.

After booking this place last minute and blind, I wasn't sure what I'd get. The price was certainly good. Lucky for me, this place is right at the foot of Rue Mouffetard which is a nice walk up the hill to the Seine. Also basically dead south from Notre Dame, which makes navigation easy from the Seine. There are several Velib' stations nearby (I'd recommend them as the best way of getting around and a nice way to see the city.) Also it's only a few blocks from an RER station and a metro station. The room was nice, the staff was pleasant and spoke at least French, English, and Italian. We never had the in-house breakfast (seemed a little pricey and we'd rather get around the city) but the desk was nice letting us in very late (three or four in the morning.) Free newspapers in several languages in the lounge. It's a very small place, probably only twenty rooms. The bathroom/toilet are separate and the toilet room is slightly claustrophobic, but the windows open wide and have beautiful window boxes. It was a simple room but clean and nice. Just remember to leave your key with the desk every day when you leave the room (why? I don't know, but it's not a big deal- make sure you don't lose the key or something.)

The Cardinal Rive Gauche offered a great location to sites in Paris without spending $400.00 dollars a night. Located just outside the Latin Quarter, in a relaxing neighborhood with great resources for food and a metro station around the corner made our stay very relaxing and enjoyable. Overall best deal in Paris!

The Hotel Cardinal Rive Gauche Comfort in Paris location is, probably, the best value for such hotel. Also I shall say that it was very clean and bathroom amenities were brand new and shiny. We could walk in any direction from it and be able to find nice cafe or restaurant, grocery store, farmers market and, of course, famous tourist destinations, like Pantheon, Luxembourg Gardens and more and more. The hotel staff was very helpful and nice and even upgraded our room to Superior, which, considering Paris hotel room sizes, was really bigger and more comfortable. The only hot stuff for breakfast were tea and coffee, but there were variety of cheeses, cereals and yogurts. The nearby street Rue Mouffetard is an excellent addition to the hotel location with lots of food places , grocery stores and farmer's market. Bus No.27 took us to the Louvre and Gallery D'Orcey. Its easy to navigate in Paris. We stayed there for five days and would recommend this hotel to our friends and family.
