Wonderful stay at Grand Hotel Saint-Michel

by A TripAdvisor Member

Just came back from our stay at the Grand Hotel St. Michel. Quaint hotel with clean rooms, nicely running air-conditioners (well appreciated in the 90 degree 3 day heat wave), great location in the Latin Quarter (close to Notre Dame, many restaurants, small markets for water, fruit, etc., plenty of shopping for latest fashion for those not able to afford the extravagent shops of Champs d'Elysées, very close to Metro), nice bathrooms with plenty of hot water. Staff was very friendly, helpful and professional. We did not have breakfast at the hotel for 12euros (took advise from many other reviewers) since there are many more alternatives.

Spacious room!

by TripAdvisor Member ElyseAshton

We stayed at the Grand Hotel Saint Michel in early September and would definitely consider staying there again. The rooms were spacious for a Paris three star hotel and was very clean. We were even able to stretch out and do a little yoga in the room! The breakfast buffet, although no bargain, was one of the better ones we've seen in our travels and included fresh fruit. The staff were all friendly and helpful and the location is perfect. We bought a carnet of metro tickets and had some left over because the walk seemed far more interesting and not terribly far. There are many amenities nearby including a cybercafe and post office. We took the RER in from CDG airport and, apart from lugging our bags up one long staircase from the station, got to the hotel in a breeze. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a clean, quiet, reasonably priced hotel in the middle of the Latin quarter.

nothing special

by A TripAdvisor Member

We stayed in the Grand Hotel St-Michel for one night in the weekend of 1-2 October 2005. The room was small, but perfect for what we needed: good bed, clean bathroom, quiet at night, no problems. The staff was correct but did not use more than the very minimum of words. The night was quiet, but the walls are thin, so I guess we were lucky. We did not take breakfast in the hotel because we wanted to enjoy the city as much as we could in the short time we had. And that's the biggest advantage of this hotel: it's very close to the Latin quarter, the lovely Place du Sorbonne (trees in automn colors, terraces for breakfast and a coffee, exhibition on the university), the great park Jardins du Luxembourg, the bars of St-Germain-des-Pres... The subway station around the corner connects directly to the trainstation Paris Nord.

We payed 140 euros because we were actually transferred from another hotel, which I already found quite high. Normal prices are even higher, around 160-170, which I would judge overpriced for what the hotel offers.

Average Hotel / Great Location

by TripAdvisor Member jkarbo9

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Grand Hotel St Michel over new years (Dec 05) for 3 nights. Upon checking into our room, we found that the bath was full of some strange cleaning product with blinds soaking in it. There was a toothbrush and some other cleaning supplies around the shower and the heating in the room did not work which wasn't good considering the sub-zero temperatures!

The staff at the front desk was very nice and immediately gave us a key to another room. The new room we were given had heat and was clean. It was very basic, had outdated furniture, ordered a double online and given two twins pushed together but since this was our first visit to France and we weren't going to be spending a terrible amount of time in the room anyway it was fine.

Everyone at the hotel was very nice and didn't mind out lack of ability to speak French - everyone there pretty much spoke English.

The hotel is in a very good location - very close to the Pantheon, a couple of Metro / RER stops are within a couple of minutes walking and it's only about a 10 minute walk to the Notre Dame. Also just a short walk from the main dining and shopping in the latin quarter.

The room was not cheap considering the amenities - i think around 225 Euro per night, but being new years in Paris I guess that's budget!

excellent stay

by TripAdvisor Member devon_sire

Im not sure what some people expect from a 3 star hotel but this one was great , the staff were very friendly and helpfull I booked with expedia and just confirmed with them a few days before that all was booked correctly , which is what I would do with any hotel anyway .
The lift is tiny (so what) the rooms are very good and clean ok there were no tea making fascilities in the room but then a travel kettle is cheap enough ,the bathroom was sparklingly clean and it was a quiet hotel , breakfast was very good and plentiful . The Latin quarter and St Germain are excellent areas and we spent 2 days just exploring them .
For a romantic trip try a dinner cruise on the Seine , fantastic !

Great Stay

by TripAdvisor Member shay_68

We stayed at the Saint-Michel in the summer of 2004. We spent a pleasant week in the upstairs suite as there were 3 of us. The room itself was comfortable and the bathroom was exquiste. It was convinent to all activities we want to persue and the staff was very helpful. Street however is very busy and if you have a car there is NO parking anywhere close - we actually ditched the rent a car and took a taxi to the rent a car agency when we started out for Northern France. Breakfast room was cosy and the food served was delicious.
Great Chinese resturant (go figure) just down the street for a late night dinner and the smell of baked bread every morning was a treat. Bank at the end of the block with ATM.

Small rooms... but good location

by TripAdvisor Member Sophia123

Some of my family and friends stayed at this hotel for the weekend to celebrate my birthday. We had booked the hotel about 3wks before travelling to Paris by Eurostar from Waterloo. What drew us to this hotel was its location being close to the Patheon, Notre Dame, Latin Quatre and the River Seine. We were able to walk to the Lourve and although it took about 15-20minutes it was a beautiful walk through old Paris.

The French country styled rooms were small but equipped with satellite TV, an immaculate bathroom with hair dryer and were air conditioned. My boyfriend and I occupied a room on the top floor which had its own balcony with a view of the Sorbonne (a 1min walk from the hotel). What we did miss was not having tea / coffee making facilities. I would recommend to try and get a room on the top floor and although the lift is small aswell as the stairs being crooked the views are better than the other rooms.

The hotel was situated off the main road being very close to boutiques and an ATM (1min walk). We were close to a couple of Metro stations, Luxembourg being the closest (3-4min walk). This was great as Luxembourg was about 3 to 4 stops direct to Gare du Nord.

Buffet breakfast was average. There was a selection of jams, croissants, fruits and cereals. The food itself was nothing special but the Breakfast room in the cellar was pretty with painted murals of the Jardins de Luxembourg on the walls.

For a 3*hotel, it could have been better but what we did pay for was the location.

weekend stay

by TripAdvisor Member Varrilly

Stayed at the Saint-Michel the weekend of 16th September. The room was quite pretty and big enough for a weekend. Everything worked and was clean, and a big plus, reception staff were very helpful.

The location is good and the hotel is easy to find if you're making your own way from the airport. If you're there for a few days buy an 'open top' bus ticket, it'll cost you £28 euros for 2 days with 4 sightseeing routes.

Don't breakfast in the hotel, if you walk down the side of the Sorbonne you'll find a lovely square with a few restaurants, great for breakfast and even better for a bottle of wine in the evening.

Try the Boullon Restaurant on Rue Racine, about 5 minutes walk.

If you're looking for a pleasant hotel in the Latin Quarter for a sensible cost then don't look any further.

Great Little Hotel

by TripAdvisor Member Spazzy

Well located near Metro and great shopping/ eating. You can walk the entire left bank from here. Stayed in three different rooms over a 15 day period between transfers. Suite facing courtyard is spacious but view is limited. Street facing roomsare the best bet with view of Sorbonne.
Breakfast at 12 euros was a great value if you are hungry. Eggs, meats, juices, croissants, fresh fruit, almonds, yogurt, great coffee etc. in a pleasant room. We spent about the same outside the hotel with a very limited menu and single cup of coffee. Don't expect perfection and you will love this hotel. Madjid and Marie were very friendly and helpful. Great value, location, finishes, water pressure.

17th or 9th district? Which one?

by madfishmatt

This is a question for someone who really knows the districts of Paris. I am debating on two locations to stay. One is in the 17th district somewhat on the border of the 18th. To be specific it is located on Rue de Rome. The other is in the 9th district on what appears to be a small street called Rue du Cardinal Mercier. I am mostly interested in easy access to subways and walking distances to other things. I used street view on google maps and noted that the Cardinal address appears to be a little more "charming" if you will; however, the other location has some great benefits too. I'm lost and need to book this thing ASAP as our trip is next week! If anyone can comment I would really REALLY appreciate it.


Re: 17th or 9th district? Which one?

by pfsmalo


The only real difference I can see is perhaps the noise of the trains entering Gare St. Lazare as the lines run for the whole length of rue de Rome.Apart from that no great difference.

Re: 17th or 9th district? Which one?

by Roadquill

The 9th AKA Pigalle is the red light district. We walked through it during the day and enjoyed it. Moulin Rouge, the restaurant from the movie Amelie, plaques on buildings where famous people lived, a walk up the hill and you are at Mont Martre and Place du Tertre. Plus you are short walk to the large shopping stores on Blvd Haussman. I was not comfortable with the crowds in the area at night. It seemed like a lot of seemingly unemployed, not too well dressed guys milling around. I am not familiar with the 17th. Karl

by cheer15

Well the 17th arrondisment is farther away from most attractions although it has the palais de congres which is a large convention center. I would personally go with the 9th arrondisment because it is close to the beautiful opera garnier, the famous department store Galeries Lafayette, and other boutique spops. There are also numerous museums around the area.

Hi there MFM, i have just booked to stay at Grand Hotel Saint Michel in st germain/latin quarter. I have been researching for some time. You can walk to many attractions from this point and you will find cafes, bars still open if you arrive back late of an evening. Great reopening specials on official site. Good luck.
