Superb hotel - great value

The best hotel I've enjoyed in Paris so far - really high quality and good value for money. During a five night stay I tried out room 42 and then the large suite in room 45 when a friend joined me. The additional cost to upgrade the room was incredibly good value - plus we scored an unexpected bottle of wine :-) Room 42 was very comfortably sized by Paris standards with absolutely no need to edge round the bed or try to squeeze into one spot to open a bag. Of particular note is the outstanding shower - genuinely spacious and fantastic instant hot water of great pressure. Both rooms were very quiet, even with windows open at night. This is by no means a dead end of town, but is pleasantly calm and the local nightlife on a summer weekend was very civilised. The hotel looks classy from the lobby entry and details in the rooms stand up to close scrutiny. Staff at the front desk were consistently warm, professional and helpful. Housekeeping were lovely and the place was spotless. As others have noted the location is great, lots of bookstores, restaurants, beer and wine bars in close proximity plus other shops. (Thoroughly recommend the Ambassade de Bourgogne around the corner if you'd like some great wine and cheese, or La Robe et la Mousse if you're into craft beer.) Very short walk to the heart of St Germain, stroll past the Odeon to the Jardin du Luxembourg, or pretty much walk anywhere you'd like to go - or take the metro if you're in a hurry. Trains direct to CDG from the Luxembourg station. I'm so glad I tried this place, and will definitely be back next time! PS: didn't try breakfast, but the room looked charming. PPS: the only thing missing from the suite was a full length mirror - this seemed an odd oversight, looked everywhere but couldn't find one. PPPS: the only thing missing from room 42 was a coffee machine - which we very much enjoyed in the suite. Bottled Evian was nice but coffee is likely more vital to many guests!

Where do I even begin? I’d like to start by saying that this hotel is one of the, if not the best and most accommodating hotel that I’ve ever had the pleasure of staying at. Me and my partner stayed for 5 nights in August for her 21st and even before arriving the hotel had already put our best interests first. For just a sum of €50 they were more than happy to surprise my partner with a bottle of champagne and rose petals in the room upon my request. They were very helpful with organising this and replied to emails very quickly, sometimes within the space of 5 minutes. When we arrived we were upgraded for free from a classic to superior room, already a nice little surprise. We were also greeted to a bottle of water, cheese biscuits and chocolate in our room, all free of charge. The rooms were cleaned daily and thoroughly; water and chocolates were always replaced for free. On my partners actual birthday, they left us half a bottle of wine and a birthday cake, both again free of charge. We had paid a little extra to have our breakfast included each morning, but paid a €2 supplement to have the scrambled eggs and bacon breakfast, which was divine every single time. There is juice and pastries which you can help yourself too, the pain au chocolat in particular we couldn’t help eating non stop. The staff were all very friendly and helpful, telling us the best route to take from the hotel to Disneyland, something my phone even had trouble telling me. The hotel is located in a quiet, quaint area but a lot of shops and points of interest are nearby. The Odeon tube station is only 2 minutes away and Luxembourg Park is 5 minutes up the road. There are also lots of nice places to eat very close by. The hotel itself is very aesthetically pleasing to look at; elegant and sophisticated! I would HIGHLY recommend this hotel to anybody wishing to stay in Paris, we will definitely be staying again in the future.
