This was a real TripAdvisor "find". Unique hotel with a grea few blocks from the Luxembourg Gardens on a quiet street off Blvd Montparnasse. Very conveniently located - you can take the RER-B directly from CDG airport to Port Royal which is a few blocks away for 10 euro; the Vavin metro stop is a few blocks in the other direction for getting around town. If you like to walk, Notre Dame, Saint Germain des Pres, the Seine, Ile Saint Louis, etc. are all very walkable. The rooms are all different and interesting, with good use of space, including a unique over-bed desk/table. The shower, even in the least expensive rooms, is amazing plus there are spa robes. The hotel was clearly designed with great care yet is reasonably priced. The staff are very friendly and speak excellent English. I particularly appreciated Eugene, who went out of his way to make my stay more enjoyable including, in keeping with the literary theme of the hotel, a great book recommendation.for later. One note - some of the photos can give the impression that the rooms are overly-bright; this gave me some pause prior to booking.; But they are not at all and in fact the lighting is well-designed, like the rest of the hotel. I will definitely stay here again next time I am in Paris.
