Maybe the "Grand" in the hotel name is a little misleading, as Grand Hotel des Balcons felt like a small and very friendly hotel. My single room was small, but included everything I needed, except a shoehorn, toothpaste and shaving foam, of which the two last mentioned were easily obtainable in the neighbourhood. Good price, central location and nice breakfast....

Friendly staff and one of the few hotels in France where it is worth having the breakfast - excellent choice including cooked breakfast and a wide range of fruits, cheese, bread, dried fruit and nuts, cereals, croissants and pains au chocolat.

The hotel is very clean, staff extremely helpful, everythink fine, but THE BEST tHING is the position: you are just 1 minute from the Odéon, in the very centre of the city. Good price, nice breakfast, single room small but confortable.... no regrets!

We stayed at des Balcons for two nights in July 2014 and had one quadriduple room for four and another superior room for two persons. We requested an upper floor and noted the hotel of our early arrival in advance. At arrival well before 11 am, adjacent rooms in the highest floor were ready for us! The service was extremely...

This is a perfect little hotel in the heart of the "Latin Quarter". In walking distance to dozens of food places, cafes, bars, etc., and also many of Paris' wonderful tourist attractions, It is right next to the Sorbonne -- the leading university and academic research centers of the world. You can't beat the location. I was there attending a...

This small but conveniently located hotel is a must for those who want to be in the 5th and close to metro and other sights. The staff were very pleasant and the room was well appointed. The price of the breakfast was a bit steep but adequate. Would book here again.

We stayed 3 nights and were very happy with this pleasant small hotel. We had a small but well appointed first floor room with a little balcony overlooking a fairly quiet street. Excellent location close to Odeon Theatre and Jardin du Luxembourg. Friendly, helpful reception staff, who recommended an excellent restaurant nearby. Good breakfasts, including some hot food. Would certainly...

The Grand Hotel des Balcons is very centrally located. The rooms were clean but quite small. Be prepared to climb the stairs to the top floors because the lift is very small. Able to open the windows.

My daughter and I stayed here for two nights recently, the 5th hotel in 10 days of traveling. We could not connect to wifi, although had no problem in the previous hotels. The front desk told us that it must be our phone. The blowdryer did not work. The faucet in the bathroom was loose, not really fastened to the...

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.
