Awesome place for not more than 1-2 days

We booked in at the Hotel for 4 nights, as the hotel was in the 7th arr. which was ideal for our trip. The room we stayed in was 'extremely' small and the same goes for the bath. If one is walking in the room, the other must lie on the bed - and we're a skinny couple. Also there were no mirrors for my wife to dress in front of, she had to stand on the bed. We attempted to use the free WiFi, however there was very poor signal in our room best to go online while sitting in a lounge downstairs. The elevator is very small - two people can stand in it sans luggage and it's full, and the circular stairwell is the same as those in a lighthouse, except there were not lights - very dark too. The reception is extremely friendly and accommodating, and overall I feel the hotel foyer and entrance hides the fact of the rooms being so small. It is possible to leave your luggage on the day of booking out, and to pick it up later. I'll only recommend this hotel for no more than 2 nights' stay, no really...

Short Break

Nice, quiet, small hotel in a great location next to the Sorbonne University. Set back from the busy Boulevard St. Michel. Lots of bars, restaurants and local shops nearby. A few minutes walk to Notre Dame and the RER line takes only 10 minutes to travel from Gare Du Nord. We arrived around 11am and our room was already available which was great.

Just what I needed for a city break

5 star location, 4 star service, 3 star room. Just what I needed. The welcome and the staff was extremely friendly, allowing us to store our bags before check-in and after check-out while we explored the city. The location is perfect, just off the Rue St. Michel, 200 yards from the Seine and surrounded by nice cafes and restaurants. Turning up really has the 'wow' factor, with the beautiful facade of the Sorbonne outside and sumptuous interior. The drawbacks were the small room which had seen better days and a tiny (3 person MAX) lift. No problem if you plan on going out to see the city.

perfect for a weekend away

The hotel is ideally located and is beautifully presented. Room was really clean and very comfortable. Loved the shower. Its a shame it didn't have tea/coffee making facilities or a mini bar/ fridge in the room. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Had a wonderful 3 night stay.

Hotelli hyvällä paikalla, ystävällinen palvelu, runsas aamupala. Huone tilava ja viihtyisä. Ylemmän keskiluokan hotelli ainoa puute on karäktäärin puute ja historiattomuus ei belle epoquen tunnelmaa!
