Where to start? The hotel was in a very good area with many connections to the underground. The room, though quite small was comfortable. The bathroom on the other hand was very strange and small. No where to put your toiletries around the sink. I had to use the ledge and bend over every time I had to get makeup, lotion or anything else I needed. the staff was amazing!! Every question or problem we had they were right on it! Including printing, scanning and faxing for us! We asked for a Italian restaurant within walking distance and they did not disappoint. Being Italian I know a good plate of pasta and the one with sarda on it was amazing! If we were to go back to Paris this is where we would stay for sure!
On a side note, be ready for the awful smells of the underground! It is very dirty and old. With all the money France gets from tourism you would think they could afford to fix and repair the underground. We have been to London and Germany and they are 5 star to Paris 1 star.
This hotel is a truly wonderful experience. With a perfect location situated very close to montparnasse tower (accessible by many different metro lines as well as ground rail) this little gem has the most hospitable staff and incredibly comfortable rooms. The price is also unbeatable. Recommend it 110%. Oh and since food is way overpriced in Paris, I'd recommend going to McDonald's just a few steps away for breakfast. They have a French breakfast (not found in their North American menu) for very cheap and tastes just as good as your local bakery.
Nice accessible location in Luxembourg and it's not too touristy. Many bistros around (recommend le comptoir if there's not a line). Walking distance to spots like Notre-Dame.
Stayed here for almost a week. Would recommend it if your first priority is location.
The hotel is not super spacious but it's kind of a Parisian experience - enough is good enough.

This hotel was close to most of the Paris attractions visitors would want to visit. The room was clean and had all the equipment we needed, such as iron, cutlery, crockery, and there was free coffee and iced water in the foyer, plus small touches such as face wipes for hot weather. The staff attended to our ordinary requests politely and efficiently and did their best to help when one of us twisted an ankle out at Notre Dame Square. The lifts were prompt, and security was well thought out. We could have bought local food and cooked for ourselves, but loved eating out in restaurants.
The reviews I read on this hotel seemed to all be about the location. The location is superb, literally steps from Pont Neuf with lots of cafes and sites an easy walk away. In our minds, though, it was the front office staff who make this place great. The "desk clerk" is in reality a concierge who conjures up tickets, marks up the metro map for you, tells you when to take the bus rather than the train, warns you about closings of sites and transport routes, sends you to the right restaurants, all while maintaining a smile that's real. Sure, the place isn't perfect (I would have given 4.5 stars if that was available, but 4 seemed too low). The rooms are small (this is Paris, after all), rooms on the street can be a bit noisy, the maid service is so-so (but if you need anything, just ask), there's no free continental breakfast. We thought the price was very fair, particularly for this area. If we go back we'll stay here, and we've already recommended it to friends.
This hotel is in a lovely setting in the Place de la Sorbonne. It is very convenient for most of the tourist attractions in central Paris. It is worth however to spend time strolling along the streets in the Latin Quarter with its many bars, restaurants and historic buildings.
Would recommend getting the RER B to the Luxembourg station if travelling from CdG airport as it is just a short walk from the station to the hotel.
This hotel is a hidden gem. The rooms are very small but very clean. the staff were friendly and accessible. The hotel itself is in a great location. Close to the louve and seine river. In the evenings our street was small and quaint but bursting in activity. Lots of cafes, shops and markets. The metro is a stones throw away. and a ten minute walk to notre dame where all the buses, metro, etc are located. I would not stay anywhere else if I went back. (only downfall is they need another mirror in the room as there is only one in the bathroom. and maybe one or two hooks to hang things on. space was limited.) stay here!
Very nice hotel with great customer service. Love the sitting area that's also the lobby area, open enclosed skyline that's lite by the natural sunlight. Paid for the breakfast service included w/ our stay & it was so "french", excellent. Only drawback was the very small one person lift.
The bathroom in our room was very modern & the fact that we had double windows helped with keeping the busy traffic noise out. Our room (1st flr) was near the front entrance with the fairly busy traffic. Staff very friendly & helpful.j
