Great little Hotel in the Latin Quarter

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 4, 2008

Located on busy Boulevard St. Michel, about 1 1/2 blocks south of Boulevard St. Germain, this hotel is perfectly situated for a quick stay in Paris. Walking distance to Notre Dame, ile de st. louis, le marais, the Louvre, the Musee D'Orsay, le jardins du Luxembourg, the Pantheon...the Sorbonne and other universities surround the hotel.

Hotel de Suez is also close to the St. Michel (and the Cluny/Sorbonne) metro station, which provides access to RER B (to Charles de Gaulle airport) and RER C (to Versailles), as well as connections to several different metro lines. I walked my way through Paris and only took the metro twice - once to la defense to meet a friend and the second time was from Versailles to Montmartre and back down to la Bastille. It was all very easy to do - take a look at the maps, note the name of the last stop on the line in the direction you are headed and then look for your train - I found the Metro to be very efficient.

The hotel itself is small but clean. I did not have breakfast there but it was available. I was traveling solo and stayed in room 105 (an interior room with a view of the space between the buildings). It was small, but plenty of room for one. The bathroom was large considering the size of the room and the shower had the best water pressure I've ever had in a hotel in Europe. In fact, the bathroom was probably the largest I've encountered in any European hotel I've stayed in. (Keep in mind that you are in a city and this is not a "western" style hotel - the rooms will be small!). Considering that the hotel was located on Boulevard St. Michel, there were no issues with noise. TV is available in the room with mostly french stations other than CNN and BBC World.

Unique Quality: The hotel staff was pleasant, spoke english and was accomodating in holding my bags for me on arrival and departure in a locked closet. Rooms were available between 12:30 and 13:00 and check out was at 11:30.

Directions: From Cluny/Sorbonne station walk 1 block south. From St. Michel, if you exit in front of Notre Dame, cross the Seine, make a right onto Quai de St. Michel and then a left onto Boulevard St. Michel.

Nice Location, Great Price

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 4, 2006

This was our first stay outside of the US, so when we walked in, my husband and I just thought that anything was fun and exciting!

Hotel de Suez was very nice for a 2 star hotel, I am told. It was a small room, but a great location in the Latin Quarter and it had a nice private bathroom with full shower and hairdryer. It was reasonably priced at $93 and was very clean. The gentleman at the counter made our restaurant reservations for us gladly and gave us a free map upon entrance.

The hotel did overlook a somewhat busy street (Boulevard Saint Michel) but it was quiet at night and provided nice ambiance. The bed was firm, but it did have a nice TV with English channels and an alarm clock!

I couldn't have been more pleased with my first overseas hotel experience! Sorry no pictures, but like I said before, my camera ate my digital card and my dad didn't take any of the hotel!

Unique Quality: Nice entrance, good location - right by the Metra

Directions: Latin Quarter

I like this hotel

First of all, I recommend that...

by written on August 26, 2002

First of all, I recommend that you stay on the left bank. The right bank is bigger, grander, and more expensive, but it is not nearly as homey, or exciting, as the Left Bank.

If you are traveling with a group, and are willing to spend about 30 dollars a night, I recommend the Hotel de Suez. This hotel has a great location; it is located halfway between the Cluny Museum and the Sorbonne on Boulevard San Michel(the main Latin Quarter boulevard). The staff is very helpful, and the rooms are adequate and clean. But the location is astounding for the price (about 60 bucks a night for two people). From the hotel, Notre Dame and St. Chappelle are a ten minute walk, the Cluny and Sorbonne are less than five, the heart of St. Germaine is ten minutes away, as is the Luxembourg Gardens. Shakespeare and Co. (the old English language bookstore) is also about ten minutes away. So, this is an all around great deal.

For a single traveler on a budget, I recommend trying to book yourself into the Association de Etudiants Protestant de Paris on Rue de Vaugirard in Saint Germaine. The dorm rooms are very basic, consisting of a bunch of sheetless and old beds lined up along a wall, but the rooms have large ceiling to floor windows that are always open in the summer. Once again, the location is the reason that I recommend this hostel. It is located across from a side entrance to the beautiful Luxembourg Gardens and is within a five or ten minute walk of the heart of the Latin Quarter and St. Germain. There is no lock out, but nothing is provided except the bed and a shower (you have to bring soap and a towel) You should get there at 8:45 in the morning to get a bed, because they do not take reservations, and you can stay there for five weeks, if you so choose.
Hotel de Suez runs about 30 dollars a person.
AAEP runs about 15 dollars a person plus key deposit.
