Mercure Paris Notre Dame Saint Germain des Prés4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
This hotel is quite centrally located in Paris. Everything is close by from here. Notre dam has many ancient structures, food street and bars that are open till 5AM in the morning, all within a 5 - 10 min walk distance. I loved this location because even other tourist spots parts of paris were easily accessible with an uber under 18EUR (if you dont want to take the public transports). We were a group of 6, so taking an uber van for 20EUR seemed more comfy and cheaper. More than anything, I just loved the location. Almost every night we were chilling in these food street and bars after 11PM and walked back to the hotel in the early hours. Notre dam is also considered quite safe even for late night strolling as there is always a lot of security and the local police station is 5 mins away from the hotel. Notre dam also has a simple and cute shopping street where all your necessity and shopping needs can be satisfied. Even the Evening Non Stop Cruise boat through Paris on the river is accessible in 5 mins. However, the hotel is quite small and the rooms too. So, if you are a slightly large person put an early request for a larger bed and room. The hotel elevators and corridors are so small that you cant pull your baggage alongside you, but, drag it behind you and then enter your room. There is no english channel except for BBC news, probably they should keep at least some english movie channels, sitcom channels and comedy channels. The breakfast is served in the basement, which is small but wonderfully done, simple and classy. The breakfast buffet spread is typical Western which I adore. So, my breakfasts were scrumptious, healthy and satisfying.
First I need to make clear, I LOVE Paris and the Parisians and have visited 3 times in less than 9 months, all amazing weekends.... UNTIL NOW... The location of this Mercure is perfect, a stones throw from Notre Dame, and a nice walk to any of the main hot spots. Comfy bed, slept very well & a nice shower... it's a shame that's all the good I can say. Supplies not replenished in the bathroom, shower gel empty from day one ... we had to request an additional few coffee pods and were charged €2 a pod !!!! Seriously almost the same Price as a box of 10 in the U.K. Quite frankly the kitchen & cleaning staff all need to be sacked !!!! Spending more time stood in the kitchen on their phones rather than making sure people are looked after and food replenished. Maybe even welcoming the guests !!! An amazing attitude "I'm really sorry but you've run out of bacon" met with a huge lump of meat shoved in a microwave and deposited pretty much uncooked a few moments later !!!! The same attitude and lack of service 3 mornings in a row, until our final morning ... and a COCKROACH falling out of the hand dryer in the bathroom NEXT TO THE KITCHEN !!!!!!!!!!! I made no real fuss at reception on departure as I'm far from a confrontational person and it was my partners birthday and didn't want to ruin... BUT all the girl on recieption could say was "oh dear" and offered us a couple of coffees while we waited to fly to the airport. PARIS....I will return to many times... THIS Mercure was a disgrace and needs to have the health people in !!!
The location of this hotel is great - it's right in the middle of the Latin Quarter which is a really quaint neighborhood. There are lots of restaurants and cafes nearby to try! There are also several Metro, RER, and bus stops (and a day pass covers ALL of them!!) which was awesome. Notre Dame is about a 6-7 minute walk away. The small rooms, cramped hallways, and teeny elevator were all expected because it was Paris, which is notorious for those accommodations. Just keep in mind that all of those things are normal for the city. We were not big fans of the breakfast package we purchased. There were not many choices and we may have been better off grabbing a pastry or something cheap from a nearby bakery rather than paying all that money to eat in the hotel.
We are a family of 4 that stayed there on a trip to Paris during Christmas. We think the location is very good and the room was as expected (clean and small). The service was good and we would consider to stay there again.
The location is perfect. The small building is old and charming and combined with Accor standards of service, cleanliness, and comfort. Right down the street from my favorite museum in Paris (the Cluny) and a little park. Restaurants, markets, metro and tourist attractions all within a short walking distance. I'd choose to stay here again.
The best thing about the Mercure Paris Notre Dame Saint Germain des Près is its location, right next to the Musée Cluny and within a short walk of Notre Dame Saint Germain des Près and the Île de la Cité. The room rates are very reasonable. Be aware, however, that the rooms are very small but this matches the room rates, and you cannot expect large rooms in such a location. The décor is somewhat faded and well-used. The staff are very pleasant and try hard to be helpful.
My wife and I stopped there and can't rate the staff high enough nothing was a problem with Sophie and Amy as the airlines had lost my wifes luggage and the girls made at least 20 phones calls to try and chase up. They also handled bookings for us . They rooms aren't big but they are all presented well and location meant we could walk to all the attractions
We enjoyed being within walking distance of all the attractions near the Latin Quarter. The privilege room we had was tiny and not up to the same standard as experienced in other similar ranked rooms but that's Paris. The Nespresso machine was definitely appreciated but 3 pods a day is hardly enough for two people. I guess we could have asked for more. Overall a good choice for our 3 day stay and the activities we wanted to do..
This hotel is conveniently located within walking distance of so many Paris landmarks. The rooms were air conditioned which was a big plus during the unseasonably warm weather. We had three rooms in our party, with mine the smallest. It was plenty big for one person, except the shower was so small it was hard to shower without rubbing up against the shower curtain. The rooms were clean and the staff was nice. I would stay there again.
In reading other people's reviews it is clear that some of them did not book this hotel with the understanding that it is a boutique hotel. Our room was very small and there was no drawer space so we lived out of our suitcases for the 6 days. That was really the only inconvenience. The twin beds are very close together so you have to like who you are staying with. The bathroom and room were very clean and the hotel staff was absolutely wonderful in directing us to places we wished to see and restaurant recommendations. They were also very instrumental in us learning how to use the metro which was only a block away. This hotel is not your expansive hotel like the Hyatt - but it is lovely and in a great location. You have to no what you are booking before you go!!! The breakfast each day was very nice - great selection. Only one day we had very runny eggs, but otherwise great experience. We also got up late one morning and they gave us what they call express breakfast which was pastry, juice and coffee - very nice!!! Word of caution - the elevator is very small!!!! Air conditioning was awesome!!!
