Great location, with shopping, transit, restaurants and cafes all nearby. The staff is friendly, the rooms are clean and quiet, and the breakfast is lovely. This hotel is a nice discovery. Don't miss the florist on the corner!

The hotel is located close to the station and it is very convenient. But it is also located in a quiet area. The room is relatively spacious compared to Paris standard. The design of the bath room is new, but it is comfortable.

Booked for a business trip as meeting hotel full. What a find - Room spotless comfortable and quiet while not large size was adequate as was breakfast. Close to some great restaurants and very helpful staff will certainly use again if staying in Paris. Also close to RER from CDG made travel easy and a part of Paris that felt safe to walk at night

There seem to be countless Paris hotels with overly small rooms, bland breakfasts, and malodorous bathrooms. The Hotel Sophie-Germain is a very welcome exception. The decor is attractive throughout, and I was especially impressed by the smart bathroom. Although the lift is tiny, the room itself did not feel claustrophobic; in fact, it was nice and quiet as it was at the back of the building. The street too is rather quiet, and there are agreeable strolls in all directions. The hotel is close to Denfert station, so well situated for RER line B etc. You can probably find a cheaper place elsewhere, but it isn't easy to locate a hotel in this bracket with such a warm welcome and smart appearance.

We stayed at this hotel for a week in April. The staff is very friendly, professional, and helpful--especially Jacques, who offered excellent suggestions to a couple of Paris newbies. The hotel is on a small, quiet side street in a neighborhood that is generally less busy than the others we visited while there. It makes a nice retreat after a busy day of sightseeing and shopping. It's very convenient to the metro--half a block from the Mouton Duvernet station (4 line) and an easy walk to several others. Our room offered a nice, small balcony facing Rue Sophie Germain. The rooms are (as we understand is typical for Paris) small. Ours, on the top floor, had room for the full-size bed, bedside tables, a small table with a mini-fridge tucked underneath it, and two nooks for clothes, and we were told it was one of the larger ones in the hotel. The bathroom was tucked in under the slanted roof and as a result it was a bit larger than some of the others described here, but had no room for a shower--only a bath with a flexible spray attachment. There is air conditioning, but I wouldn't expect it to be super-effective during warm summer months especially on high floors. We both like sleeping in cool rooms and found it more effective to sleep with the window and balcony door open. Wi-Fi was typical hotel free Wi-Fi--adequate for basic map searches and checking email.

good place to stay near a metro a bit pricey but affordable near nice restaurants many eating places to go to after dark might consider since RER B line is there. good to travel to airport highly recommended for people travelling to paris many times

I stayed initially for a few days, left for another city and came back for one more night. I thought the room I stayed in initially was small, so was shocked the second one was even smaller. It was so difficult to move around. My knees got a bit of a knocking. My suitcase could barely fit the room. Breakfast was basic. Slightly insensitive to non-pork eaters though. The staff are very nice and professional and I could stay there again. Close to the metro, Denfert-Rochereau, which is also close to the buses going to Orly airport. The hotel is also not far from a famous site with ancient bones buried underneath. I did not visit, as there was a long queue to visit the site.

I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights in October as a surprise birthday present. The staff were very kind, the continental breakfast was lovely and the hotel room itself was nice and cosy.. Weird bathroom layout, I initially thought it was just a cupboard. Just perfect for us really. Would definitely stay again! Not too far from local sights either.

Having checked out of the Hotel Lion, we were on our way to the airport when my wife had her bag stolen. With the Lion fully booked, the Manager called his friend at the Hotel Sophie Germain, who had one room available. When we arrived, Madame was most solicitous, and did everything to help us as we tried to sort out lost passport, cards, papers, etc. We were shattered, and she made us feel almost back to normal. Its a wonderful 3 * hotel - very modern interior, modern amenities, and as a special touch, a delightful buffet breakfast included. We can't thank her enough for her kindness.

Excellent hotel. Nice, clean and quiet. Very well located, not far from Denfert-Rochereau, Alésia, and General Leclerc Avenue Nice employees. Good breakfast. It is our first experience of a later check-out for free!
