I Have been coming to this hotel many times and I'm afraid this will be the last. Dreadful nights sleep for the duration mainly due to paper thin walls and what can only be described as an elephant occupying the room above me. Added to this was the noise made by housekeeping. Absolutely no consideration for guests I have never...

We stayed at this place in 2008 and on this return trip to Paris we decided to stay here again. I requested a room with two single beds and asked if for the room located at the back of the hotel, not the room that is on the first floor facing the street. The hotel staff is very friendly and...

This is a lovely small typically Parisienne hotel in a great location within walking distance of many tourist sites. Our room was smallish but quite comfortable with room for us both to repack big suitcases before returning to Australia after 7 weeks away. The hotel seems to have been refurbished recently and everything was spotlessly clean and fresh. The staff...

An excellent hotel in an older building, located near Jardin du Luxembourg. Able to reach on Metro if you can read maps and do a few steps.

We have stayed here many times in the last 30 years (I just counted) and it is our first choice of base in Paris. Conveniently located near the Odeon metro, which is just a few stops for the Gare du Nord, it is comfortable, friendly and reasonably priced. A few years ago it had a major re-decoration and it still...

Planning to return to Paris after 4 years, my 3 friends and I decided unanimously to return to this hotel. It has been refurbished since our last visit and, at least in the room I shared, the shower room has been updated. The rooms are still very small and there is still no air conditioning but we found fans in...

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

Neighbourhood Profile
Saint-Germain-des-Pres
In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops, ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants. Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine art school and small museums hide in unassuming squares. The neighbourhood’s namesake church is the oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented musicians every weekend. The Luxembourg Gardens house the national senate, splendid lawns and flourishing flower beds. Famous faces and bourgeois Parisians frequent Saint Germain accompanied by the students of Rue Saint Guillaume and Rue des Saints-Pères. This is a neighbourhood where afternoon people-watching from a café or playing cards in a brasserie are a key part of the daily fabric.
