My daughter and I stayed here during our Paris trip (4 days), and really liked the hotel. Staff were pleasant but unobtrusive, and the room was simple but perfectly adequate. the neighbourhood is GREAT, and lots of nearby Metro stops make it easy to get around. However, we were told that the building was being renovated, so check before you... More

Well I landed in this hotel searching for budget options. Not exactly a budget hotel but surely a good one. Pretty much walking distance from the metro station Les Gobelins, it boasts of a lot of Cafes and Patisseries around in the area. The check in was pretty quick and the receptionist was friendly. Overall a hotel you can stay... More

I was there with my girlfriend and we had a good time with the hotel. The location is quite far away from the city center since you have to take a few stops of Metro and around 500 meters walking to reach the hotel. The local neighbor was quite and safety. The staffs are very friendly and helpful to show... More

This hotel has the 3 most important things for us: It has a good position, 5 minutes from metro station, or you can easily walk down to the Patheon through Rue Mouffetard, actually we were walking until the Notre Dame!

Great place to stay for a weekend in Paris if you are looking for a budget hotel.. On a quiet street, and simple fairly small rooms. But comfortable, clean and well located. Breakfast was good -- cold buffet but more than many Paris hotels. Helpful reception staff. Hotel has a lift.
