STILL My Favorite Hotel in Paris - Hands Down!!

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 29, 2006

I LOVE this hotel. It's my absolute favorite in Paris, hands down. I stayed there the first trip (March 2001), dined on couscous on the terrasse the 3rd trip (April 2003), dined and stayed in 2 different rooms this past trip (February 2006). They have the best croissants I've eaten yet in Paris and the coffee is divine, so's the fresh-squeezed oj. If you stay there, please tell Nicole Madame Mary Connolly said hello. She's great and her English is perfect, her sense of humor is very dry but you'll find her to be extremely helpful. Monsieur Tahir, while he doesn't speak a lick of English, is very kind and gracious - I somehow managed to have a 40-minute conversation with him despite my limited French.

Moviemakers must find the area charming as well since it made its way into the 1995 version of Sabrina (when she and her photographer friend are dining at a café - at one point in the background you see the hotel) and also in this year's The Devil Wears Prada. Andy (Anne Hathaway) is walking south on the rue du Haut Pavé toward the Square Restif de la Bretonne while you see the south rose window of Notre Dame looming in the background.

It's a different type of hotel, an auberge (hotel with restaurant although I've listed it as a B&B), unique and in a great area of Paris (so close to Notre Dame while veering away from the touristic haunts of the Latin Quarter - plus just down the street you'll find Place Maubert where they have bi-weekly food markets).

And of course, just down the street at 3, rue des Grands Degrés is a famous bistro (mentioned in Bistros of Paris by the Hamburgers) called Le Reminet. One of my best friends loves this resto.

Unique Quality: Here are photos of room 501 from this past trip on pbase (click "next" at the right top of the page to see a total of 23 photos for the room and other parts of the hotel including the murals - Monsieur Tahir, the owner, is a big art lover):

2nd photo is from the Square outside the hotel looking down rue de la Bûcherie which leads to Shakespeare & Co.

Directions: Located in the Latin Quarter on the Left Bank just opposite of Notre Dame. In fact, some rooms (48 & 501) have views of the south tower.

My All-Time Favorite Hotel!

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

Located in the 5th arrondissement in the historic Latin Quarter, Hotel les Degres de Notre Dame is an excellent hotel for families with children. The great thing is that it is located across the Seine with views of Notre Dame, plus prices are very reasonable.

The rooms are very charming. I had requested a single room w/ view of Notre Dame and they gave me one for about $86 (600₣ or 95? in 2001) that included free breakfast (served in room or in the restaurant below - stays open all night except for Sunday).

*Another room (#501) that is larger & recommended for honeymooning couples went for about $120/night in 2001. This one has the best view of Notre Dame.
* Big room on the top floor known as the family room is now 190 euros. It holds 1 large double bed & 2 single beds.
* They also have one room with double, sofa & full bathroom for 160 euros.
* A regular double is 100 euros.
* A single on the 1st floor is 70 euros.
* Breakfast is still included in the price.

Hotel les Degres de Notre Dame - March 2001
Hotel les Degres de Notre Dame-March 2001-Interior

Unique Quality: Room 47: A lovely demi-view of Notre Dame thru tall, floor-to-ceiling tapestry-curtained double-glazed windows, beamed ceilings, glossy hardwood floors covered by an oriental rug, TV, hair drier, en-suite bathroom with bath & shower, even a desk. It had its own radiator/heater if you needed extra heat. Ahhh!

It is super clean and the hotel entrance is across from the picturesque Square Restif de la Bretonne which was featured in the 1995 version of Sabrina. Hotel is located down a side street from the quai de Montebello in a nice, very well-situated, centrally-located, safe area. It lies very close to the bateaux mouches (river boats), Notre Dame, Ste-Chapelle, Shakespeare & Co. and a great souvenirs shop around the corner on Quai de Montebello.

Plus it has a very inexpensive Algerian couscous-type restaurant, a couscouserie. I ate dinner there my third trip (April 2003) - 'twas wonderful, a couscous with merguez sausage. With aperitif & wine 16?. The superb free breakfast consists of freshly-squeezed orange juice, flaky fresh croissants with butter & jams, and hot, fresh French caf? served with a pitcher of hot milk. No better way to start your day.
