What a great hotel. The best thing is the location. 3 minute walk to Luxembourg RER station which takes you right to Charles De Gaulle. 15 second walk to bars, restaurants, shops, cinemas, etc. 8 minute walk to Cluny Metro. 10 minute walk to all the cool bars in the Latin Quarter. 15 minute walk to Notre Dame. I could go on. It is on a quiet street across from the university so feels out of the way and very quiet at night but is literally feet away from activity. We arrived 3 hours before check in, not a problem, our room was ready. They had even given us the green stripy room we’d asked for as we liked it on the photos. Very friendly and helpful with quaint little reception and even quainter (tiny!) lift. We stayed on the 5th floor in a superior room and yes, it is Paris so the room was small. Enough space for two to freely move around and enough hanging space but I think more than 5 days and it would get a little claustrophobic. Very clean, iMac computer and entertainment centre very handy and very comfortable sleep. The only negative I can think of is the Wi-Fi was a little intermittent when not using the provided iMac but it’s hardly worth mentioning. Happy to recommend and answer any questions if you are planning this hotel for your trip. All in all, a great boutique style hotel and I would stay here again without hesitation.

Great location, nice beds, quirky lift, helpful staff. Yes the bedrooms are small so if your planning on swinging a cat not the place for you. For everybody else - reasonable, funky hotel right in the centre - and the courtyard facing rooms are lovely and quiet.

Great location! Walk a quarter of a block out the hotel door and you are on the Place de la Sorbonne, where cafe tables spill out the cafe doors toward the fountains. Walk down the Boulevard Saint Michel down to the river and Notre Dame -- just ten or fifteen minutes. You are totally in the center of the Latin Quarter, and can walk pretty much anywhere.

Amazingly, there is an actual computer in each room, so researching the next day's activities was very simple.

The rooms are small, the bathrooms even smaller. We were there during a warm spell in April and kept the windows open all night (they opened onto a courtyard) and it was quite quiet (we stayed 6 days). Very comfortable beds.

Room Tip: Don't miss Cluny Museum - 2 blocks away.

Me and my boyfriend stayed here for 4 nights. It is a great location, literally 5 minutes walk to the River Seine, and lots of great shops, bars, and places to eat nearby. The design and decor is very classy. We stayed in a standard double room, number 15. It was small but enough room for two. Shower was great. My only complaint is that the walls are thin and on the last night we had trouble sleeping due to the man in the next room snoring loudly! Can hear the pipes and water running from other bathrooms too, but if you've had a busy day walking around Paris, nothing will keep you awake long at the end of the day. The staff were lovely and kept hold of our luggage when we arrived early, and spoke French, English, Spanish, and Deutsch. Also, all rooms have an iMac- win!

All in all, a pleasant stay, and for the price, location, and classy decor, there isn't much to fault. Would definetly stay again!

Room Tip: Eat breakfast out- its cheaper!
