Great accomodation

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 23, 2009

I chose this hotel because of its location and affordable price. I discovered it was charming, confortable, great staff, always willing to help and give you suggestions. Breakfast good; quiet, clean and confortable rooms, a charming small elevator (too small for some tourists' taste, but it gives a unique charm to the hotel). Location in the Latin Quartier makes it very close to cultural atractions of Paris (walking distance to Sorbonne, Pantheon, Notre Dame, etc), in an area with bistros and pubs and shops, so you can get all you need near hotel. Very close to metro, bus stations, RER. Definitively a hotel to come again and to recommend it to your friends.

Unique Quality: Friendly staff, that makes you feel at home.

Directions: A few meters from Sorbonne.

Great Location, Lousy Customer Service!

I really don't have too many nice things to say about the Hotel Claude Bernard. Unfortunately, their bedside manner is not the best, too bad because the location is prime.

Unique Quality: Great location, cute balconies.

Directions: Latin Quarter/Pantheon

Staff with Manners of a Disgruntled St. Bernard

On first impression, we realized that the staff was extremely rude, not helplful and uncooperative. If you are unfortunate enough to end up at the Claude Bernard, here are some quick tips on how to survive your stay:

1. DO NOT ask any questions (especially not in English) to any staff member, ever.
2. DO NOT mention that the room temperature is too cold.
3. DO NOT ask for extra blankets no matter how freezing cold the room gets.
4. DO NOT attempt to eat your hotel breakfast in your room or the staff within minutes, will come knocking on your door asking for their plates back.
5. DO NOT attempt to make any phone calls in your room regardless of using a phone card, there is always a "hidden" charge.
6. DO NOT ask to use the iron otherwise you will be required to squeeze into the tiny phone booth sized elevator, lugging the heavy ironing board, along with the thick-chained iron attached to it.
7. DO NOT expect to find the main entrance of the hotel open past 11:00 PM. You will be met with a locked door, no lights and a disgruntled half-asleep concierge!

We hope that these 7 simple tips will help ease your stay at the Claude Bernard Hotel. Please feel free to pass these tips along.

Unique Quality: The location is central to most tourist attractions and the balcony (although small) was a nice feature.

Directions: Latin Quarter/Pantheon/Notre Dame
