Select Hotel - Rive Gauche

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Easy access to metro and awesome air conditioning.

An ideal location, I could walk to many places, but the public transportation is very good. The room was clean and modern.

Great hotel in The Latin quarter. Highly recommend!

2 of us stayed here for 7 nights. Paris is a walking city, so after a long day of walking it felt good to come back to a nice room. The room and bathroom were a decent size. It was clean and the shower head pressures were wonderful. It's located in a completely safe area even at night. Everything is close by, the metro is about a 5 min walk away.

My daughter and I stayed here for one night. The rooms are very cramped, but that apparently is very Paris. The decor was pleasant, and the bed comfortable. The location was nice and near good restaurants and shopping. The staff were friendly and obliging storing our luggage.

The Select Hotel Paris Rive Gauche is relaxing and quiet with a beautiful elevator and great front desk people to help you with any Paris questions. The room included a comfortable queen size bed, a glass shower and a large closet which contains a safe, a refrigerator and plenty of shelves for your clothes. There is a delicious breakfast offered everyday in a beautiful, artistic setting which is well worth the extra charge. The left bank neighborhood is ideal for Paris tourists. It is walking distance to many important sights including Notre Dame, the Louvre, the Eiffel Tower, and several Metro stations. You will be so happy that you chose this hotel!

Just OK, would not recommend. Am sure there are better hotels for less money. Room tiny and very noisy.

The hotel room was small, but clean. I would visit the hotel again, however I would be ver specific regarding the location and size of room.It was disappointing in a couple of ways, however. It was not remotely like the room in the picture! and it was on the main floor, which allowed us a mediocre view of the pedestrians walking by our room...

Beautiful and spacious room, great location. Staff was unevenly polite, some helpful, some not. Overall a great experience, nevertheless.

Being it was last minute it was good enough, but the staff was not overly friendly.

staid here twice, with very different reasons to visit, once with a kid for sight-seeing, once for business. this hotel has everything you need, the location is wonderful. cant wish for more.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel as part of our European honeymoon. It was by far the nicest and roomiest hotel room we stayed at during our travels. We also had a picture perfect view from our room and the only bath tub on the trip. My only "complaint" is that there wasn't an ice machine at the hotel and our twin beds kept moving apart. : )

A good experience, small but comfortable room, great shower. Really a 3.5 star hotel by my estimation. The hotel could use a concierge. Relying on hotel staff for recommendations is hit or miss.

I was ready to give this hotel a bad review and then the staff turned everything around. The hotel is very well located, on a plaza adjacent to the Sorbonne, about 2 blocks north of the Luxembourg Gardens. It's far enough away from the touristy haunts on the Seine so that it's quiet, but only a 5-10 walk from them and from Notre Dame when you're ready to dive in. Close to Metro and RER stations. Hotel is well maintained. Rooms are up to date and comfortable. Great showers. But some of the rooms are very, very small. Very...small. When I raised an issue about the size of our room upon arrival, the staff was able to move us the second night to a larger, more comfortable room. I will say, though, that even the very small room was efficiently arranged and surprisingly comfortable, once you got over the issue of its size. Staff were also helpful in 3 different restaurant recommendations. Overall, a very good experience.

good staff, good location... small room, no refregirator...

Fantastic stay in a perfect location. Right near the RER to get back and forth to CDG and easy access to all attractions and walking distance to Notre Dame. Only down side was that we reserved a queen bed and ended up with two twin beds - takes away from the romance a bit.

The hotel is located in the heart of Paris. The staff is very helpful and provide answers to all your questions very quickly. i would suggest to ask for a room looking the square. i would recommend the hotel for a short stay up to a week.
