The location of the hotel is very good, however the room is not very comfort, i think it is too small. The bathroom is part of the room, so no privacy at all, however the colors in the bath are really nice. This hotel is only for couples, not for a family.
Arrived at the hotel and was not welcomed by the owner instead the lady went on to telling me how they don't have any baby cradles and that I should have been told about this's do how we should not be staying in their hotel with our baby due to them not providing a baby cradle. I explained we are fine with out the cradle and our 10month baby could sleep in our bed. After that was out of the way we recieved our keys and made our way to the rooms. The Rooms were nice for our budget and the location was superb right across the street from Notre Dame Cathederal and around the corner from a variety of bars and restaurants.
It is great to visit Paris in the spring and summer yet november is great month to enjoy Paris. The hotel location, rooms and people working there were extraordinary. The Latin Quarter is very safe, pleasant to just walk around late at night and have a drink in the numerous cafes and bistros. I have visited Paris staying in a friend' s apartment yet being in your own hotel excellent room is much better.
Perfect location! My husband and I absolutely adore the latin quarter and St. Germain and this was an ideal place to stay. A quiet, lovely street away from the hustle of the latin district/St. Michaels, with Rue St. Germain on one side with lots of restaurant options and the Seine, with a view of Notre Dam on the other end, lovely! The hotel staff was very nice and helpful and the hotel was absolutely gorgeous. Quaint and quirky! The room was clean and comfortable but the only complaint we had was the lack of privacy with the toilet. It was a tiny stall with no door (although we swung the shower door over, but it didn't cover much). Not ideal for new couples but my husband and I have been together for years, it hardly made a dent in our trip! Simple breakfast for a small fee in the morning was helpful when we wanted to rush right out to see the sights.
I would've preferred to stay in a hostel over this overpriced bare bones hotel. The rooms are tiny with no shower despite being advertised as a bath with shower. There is a tub that lights up (very red light district), but no stand up shower. There is a very short spray that you can use to sort of rinse yourself off, but it is so short that you have to sit in the tub to do it. I am a small woman and found this difficult. Oh and did I mention there is no shower curtain or door separating the bedroom from where the tub, sink and toilet are????? You have to bath less than a foot from where you sleep! Good thing I was here with my husband, but I would've appreciated some privacy and a stand up shower. There is a "door" to the toilet which is probably the smallest space for a toilet I have ever seen; however the toilet and it's door are a sheer green glass and there is a 1/4 inch of open space so you can basically see and hear everything. Yuck! The neighborhood is sketchy too --- a homeless person was sleeping on the street one night etc. There's also a local bar up the street (Long Hop) where lots of local 20 something year olds hang out and drink all night long...even with the window closed you can hear them and their drunken screams. The room was very stuffy, so we turned on the A/C, which does absolutely nothing to cool down the room. There are 2 tiny vents for A/C that are pathetic. The front staff is reasonably friendly, but don't speak much English. You have to leave your key at the front desk, which is weird, but once you see the mini hockey stick type key chain attached to their archaic key you'll be happy to not have to lug it around Paris. The biggest problem for us was the lack of a stand up shower and no privacy when bathing or using the bathroom. This hotel is very deceitful in their advertising. I would report them to the BBB if they were in the states. Don't make the same mistake we did...don't stay here unless you don't like to shower and you enjoy small tight spaces.
Hotel was 2 min walk (at most) to Notre Dame. I could hear ND's church bells from the window of my room. Location felt very safe, and was also conveniently located next to small cafes and places to shop and eat. The room was very, very small. I was solo traveling and it felt cramped even for one person, but I was out most of the day / night so the lack of space was ok. Everyone at the front desk was also very helpful with providing directions and local suggestions for places to eat--they all also spoke English too which was a great plus. I would stay again if solo traveling, but would stay elsewhere if with others.
The hotel was excellent for our trip. It is in a perfect location that is easily accessible to all of the popular areas in Paris as well as the metro. This makes it very easy to get around. There are also many restaurants and a lot of shopping right outside the hotel. A true European gem!
The location of this hotel is excellent. It is right in the middle of everything you could possibly need. Food, attractions, shopping, metro, etc. What makes it even better is the fact that it sits on a little back street off the main road so it is protected from all the noise from the main street and restaurants. The staff was extremely friendly and the hotel is very clean. The room is very small but who stays in their room in Paris? All we used it for was to shower and sleep. One of the best values I have come across!
The room was nice enough but the guy at the front desk was less than friendly/helpful, internet access only worked when I walked way down the hallway by the elevator and the entire hotel did not have one iron to borrow. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone.
