Hotel Design Sorbonne

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Very comfortable and well located with a welcoming and helpful staff. Our room was small but totally functional and equipped with an iMac computer which provided access to the internet as well as many TV channels. Highly recommended.

Excellent location across from Sorbonne and around the corner from Sorbonne Place. Great for walking; the Metro, buses. A little gem of a property. Well run. Decor is outstanding. Charming. Quiet. Super nice staff. One of the best hotels I have stayed at in recent times. Makes US hotels look pathetic. How nice to have pleasant, helpful staff. And the price is outstanding. Thank you!

I love travel, and have had the pleasure of visiting many places. On this trip I was elsewhere in Europe, then Casablanca, then had one night in Paris. I arrived in the afternoon. Of course I wanted to support Paris in whatever way I can after the horrors that have been exacted on this jewel of a city. I knew i had limited time, so chose to be in a hotel that was located in the city center. Everything about this trip and visit was PERFECT! First of all, the hotel is very conveniently located on the edge of the Sorbonne. Simply get on the train at the airport and take the Luxemborg exit for a less than five minute walk. The design touches of the hotel are exquisite the staff warm and gracious and the small room was impeccably clean. Within walking distance of the hotel is the Sorbonne cinema, several quaint shops and a variety of cafe's and a creperie. I had the best sleep i had had for the last 2 weeks, and then had pleasant ride on train back to airport. People have different attitudes and expectations about hotels. For me I prefer a smaller place, that feels safe and is yet convenient. I would rather spend my time exploring and being out rather than sitting in hotel room. So this hotel was perfect for me and I absolutely recommend it! I traveled by myself on vacation for this trip.

This is my second stay and I stay here because the location is simply fabulous, it is clean and modern, and the macbook with tv/internet is awesome. the rooms are SMALL - so be sure to book an upgraded room or else expect to be in physical contact with your second guest at all times. The bathroom is small but very modern and upgraded. Overall, very well done for the space they have, and the location cannot be beat. The walls are thin, so if you are a light sleeper bring ear plugs (we heard a baby cry intermittently)

The decor in these rooms were very interesting- seemingly hit or miss. I liked the ornate floor to ceiling wallpaper and modern style. Also, the in-room computer/tv/wifi set up was excellent! However, the rooms were small, but hey, that's Paris for you.

Attentive and responsive staff. Tasteful small scale boutique hotel positioned across the street from the Sorbonne. Close walking distance to many important and interesting sites. Active night life in the immediate area. Close to the metro.

This boutique hotel is located in the Saint Germain, Latin Quarter of Paris. I wasn't that pleased with the location of the hotel, except for it's close distance from Notre Dame Church. There were cafes closeby that were much better value than the 13 Euro/per person breakfast. We requested a certain room but did not receive it. Our room was nicely furnished, although tiny, which is expected for Paris hotels. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We had a good stay, but would go elsewhere next time.

Creative, interesting theme throughout but trying a but too hard to be hip. Free internet was good...bathroom unusually small even for paris. good safe neighborhood with good restaurants nearby.

The location for this hotel could not be more perfect, it is central to the heart of Paris and within walking distance of so many of the main Paris locations, Notre Dame, Louvre, and more. And the rest of Paris is well served by the nearby St. Michel train station. The staff is extremely friendly, warm, welcoming and helpful, especially to English speakers. The rooms are small but well appointed and clean, with its own computer with internet, was a very very convenient and modern touch to a charming Paris hotel. This is an amazing value and a beautiful and hidden gem in the heart of the Latin quarter. I recommend this hotel with every fiber of my being, it is wonderful beyond par.

Super nice staff. Great location. Spotless room. Free wiFi -- AND -- a computer in the room!!! Yup, the shower is small, get over it. For the price it will be hard to beat. We will stay here again.
