I know that I lucked out in selecting this hotel. I searched for a two-star hotel that would be both fairly close to central Paris and to the Cite Universitaire. Hotel delos Vaugirard was the first hotel that came up in my search. I liked the look of it, found good reviews for it on Trip Advisor and the price was right for my budget. I google-mapped the neighborhood and like the look of it. So I booked it!
Unique Quality: The hotel was just as I hoped it would be. It was small but not crampt. The staff was friendly and helpful both with directions and in making sure that my friend got a phone number where I could be reached, after I arrived.
I booked a double room because I was originally going to travel with a friend. That being said, I can't vouch for the size of thier single rooms. My double room was L shaped with two small twin beds tucked into one corner. Shelves, an open closet, nice sized flat-screen TV and a wonderful floor to ceiling window which opened with doors, was in the other. (This was my favorite part of the room!) The bathroom was pretty large and spotlessly clean as was the rest of the room. I enjoyed having it to myself but know that I would've been perfectly comfortable sharing the space.
Breakfast costs 8 Euro and change. For that price you get a buffet that includes hard-boiled eggs, cereal, yogurt, bread, mini-baguettes, pastries, plump and juicy dried apricots, dates, prunes, grapefruit wedges, juices and an assortment of hot and cold beverages. I never had a problem finding a table to myself and being able to sit and read while I dined.
The neighborhood is quiet and safe. My room faced the back of the hotel so I'm sure that helped with the noise factor.
I want to mention that I booked my stay through the Federal Hotel site and when I arrived they could not find my reservation. (Panic!) I was about to find my confirmation on my e-mail account on their PC when they found it. It was under the website's name and not mine. So if you do book it through them it's fine. Just don't forget to bring a printout to not have a stressful few minutes like I did!
Directions: Take the #12 metro to Vaugirard. When you exit, make sure you're on the side of the street where the park is and walk to the right of it staying on Rue de Vaugirard. Go 2 blocks to Rue du General Beuret and it's toward the end of that block.
I'm looking for hotels under 65 euro per night for a single, preferrably left bank.
The ones I am looking at are in order of my current preference:
2. Delos Vaugirard
3. de l’Avre
4. Kyriad Brancion
de l'Avre is low on the list because it is the most expensive.
Any feedback will be gratefully received ;)
I think you are right the Hotel Port Royal is the best location. It is near the Rue Mouffetard which is one of the most typical landmark of Paris. The nearest metro Station (Gobelin) is directly linked with the Chatelet Station.
The other hotels are in the outskirts with no attraction nearby.
Have a good stay.
Thank you for your quick reply -- that is my thought also, but I'm always looking for new options. I don't mind being "out" a bit as long as "le grève" skips the métro!
I know that you won't stay here but check it out anyway, especially the 'fro on the bro in the intro...
"Peace and Love" indeed and bonne année 2006!
I think you are right.
last year, I stayed at the Hotel Delos Vaugirard, http://www.hdelosvaugirard.com/ it was a nice 2 stars hotel located in a calm street. Apparently the hotel was renovated, rooms were really clean and nicely decorated. The location is quite central, not really far from the Eiffel tower. There are metro and bus stations nearby the hotel, so quite good transport links.Nice staff in the hotel.
I hope you will enjoy your stay in Paris
