Amazing Location

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 19, 2009

The hotel is well appointed. The rooms are what you expect of a hotel in Paris: ie small. I admit, I was shocked when there were no shower curtains, but I got over this shock. What is absolutely great about this hotel is the location. Close to so much: St. Sulpice, the metro, Boulevard St. Michel/St. Germaine. A short walk to Notre Dame and the Luxembourg Gardens. Perfect.

Directions: Close to the Latin Quarter, in St Germaine

This hotel is excellent for its price (we paid 100 euros for a queen-size bed room) and perfectly located near Jardins du Luxembourg, Théatre de l'Odéon, and not far from Blvd St Germain. The decoration is pleasant, it is very clean and the staff is really nice. They do not have air conditioning, but provided a fan during the summer heat. The street, Casimir Delavigne, is quiet so a room on street side is no problem. Also, there was albsolutely no cigarette smoke smell anywhere in the hotel, a blessing in Paris! We loved it

Unique Quality: Excellent value for the location and quality of the rooms.
Close to RER B station which is the direct train line to Charles de Gaulle airport.

Directions: 6th district, close to Jardins du luxembourg, Senate and Théatre de l'Odéon.
Metro: RER Luxembourg or métro Odéon

I felt this hotel's accommodations were almost the same as shown on the website. We stayed the standard twin that was not very wide and beds were tiny but lovely decorated. Yes, windows couldn't be wide opened as beds were in the way. We pushed the beds toward the wall on the other side, and then we got a cool breeze and fresh air. No air-condition is OK in September. From the balcony, we can see the Theater Odeon and street of Paris(5th floor). Buffet breakfast will be good for the large breakfast. We had a lot and we don't have to eat lunch, so 10 euros were value. Front Staffs were helpful for 24 hours(I asked a staff to open the wine bottle at 2 a.m.). Though it's a little hard to get used to use a bathtub without shower curtain(many Paris' hotel don't have), our stay was comfortable.

Unique Quality: Water supply was very good. We even could make instant noodles with the hot water of the faucet. You don't need a Water Heater. Wonderful location enabled you to walk to the Notre Dame, d'Orsay, Louvre, especially Rue Mouffetard which has good food markets.

Directions: around the Theater of Odeon

Good Hotel, Good Breakfast, Good Location

This hotel is a very nice value and located just down the street from the Odeon theatre about 2 blocks off Blvd St. Germain. The staff is very attentive and helpful, the rooms were small, but very nice and the price was reasonable. The only thing I did not like about it was the shower - and that only because it was so small. It is convenient to the Odeon Metro and all the shops and restaurants along St. Germain. I would give it a high recommendation.

Unique Quality: Since our last stay here I learned from reading his latest book that the American writer, Pat Conroy, had finished what may be his best novel, "Prince of Tides," was finished while he was living in this hotel. The location is on a very short one-way street so there is not a lot of noise or traffic. One of its great features is a wonderful breakfast in a most attractive room. Available were cereal, yogurt, cheese, sausages, some of the best bacon I have tsted, eggs and breads.

My favorite hotel in Paris

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 12, 2004

I stayed 5 nights at this hotel and loved the location. It's close to the St Germain/Latin quarter but it's on a quiet street. The closest subway station is Odeon, only a couple of blocks away.

Unique Quality: This is a 2 * star hotel that should be 3 *. The staff is friendly and speaks English. Our double room was small but adequate and was 90 Euros last year. I believe the rates in the summer are about 110 euros.
It's a clean hotel and the buffet breakfast is excellent (10Euros). I noticed several French office workers who were staying at this hotel for the week.
The hotel is NOT air-conditionned, so I don't know what it would be like during a summer heat wave. There is a small elevator.
The neighborhood felt very safe and we walked in the neighborhood late at night.

Directions: small street, next to Odeon Theatre. GREAT location.

Wonderful Hotel

This hotel is in a wonderful location very near the Luxembourg Gardens. It is on a quiet little street so you don't hear a lot of traffic. It is located in the St. Germain area and it is not far to walk to the river, Notre Dame, Louvre, etc. The staff was very friendly and accomodating. They arranged two minibus tours for us which were excellent. They have an amazing breakfast buffet at the hotel or you can have a really nice continental breakfast in your room. (Nothing like the Continental breakfast in the States.)

Directions: St. Germain area, very near Luxembourg Gardens

A Great Value in Paris

by written on October 23, 2002

A small hotel on the Left Bank close to St.Germain. The room was medium sized with a decent bathroom. The room was very clean, the staff helpful and they allowed us to check in early.

Unique Quality: A little tiny balcony overlooking a quiet street. Our room was 110 US per night.

Directions: Close to Luxumbourg garden about a ten minute walk to the Seine, Louvre and Notre Dame.

Currently (2002) they are quoting about 90Euro for doubles, 70 for singles. All rooms have en suite baths.

Unique Quality: The art deco lobby, breakfast room, and stairway are lovely. The chandaliers simply blew me away. The staff is tremendously helpful. Oh yes, and the 10euro per person breakfast buffet turns out to be a bargain if you like a large meal (and pretty much endless coffee!) in the morning.

Directions: It is in the 6th, use the Odeon Metro stop. A couple of blocks in the other direction is Luxembourg Gardens. An ideal location, on a quiet street, yet very close to many wond

Grand Hotel des Balcons

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 24, 2002

Located in the heart of Latin Quarter this hotel was exactly what I was looking for during my very first visit back in the late 1990's.

The hotel is really quaint on the outside with the charming balconies from which it derives its name from. The lobby is small but very charming. The owners are friendly and very knowledgable and will assist you in any question you may have regarding Paris.

I was traveling on my own druing this very first visit and I wanted to be in a centrally located area. The metro stop is a few blocks and so is the Odeon theatre, many eateries and walking distance to the Luxembourg gardens.

A very hip and centrally located hotel with a very good price. I paid $75 a night for a single room.

Unique Quality: The hotel is centrally located in the St. Germain des Pres area, close to the Palace du Luxembourg and the Pantheon, movie theatres and many cafes and shops. The metro stop is the O'deon.

Directions: St. German de Pres
