About Hôtel Au Royal Cardinal

Budget hotel with free WiFi in the Latin Quarter

Island hopping
This budget-friendly hotel puts you in the Latin Quarter, on Paris's Left Bank. It's a 5-minute walk to the cobbled streets of Ile Saint-Louis, and double that to Notre-Dame Cathedral on Ile de la Cité, the next island along. Cardinal Lemoine Metro Station is 100 meters away.

Gardens left and right
You'll be a 15-minute stroll from the 400-year-old Luxembourg Gardens. Here you'll find prize people-watching, lots of statues, an orangery, and a fruit garden. The Jardin des Plantes – home to a botanical garden, zoo, and natural history museum – is within 500 meters.

Breakfast in bed
Hôtel Au Royal Cardinal is on the bustling Rue des Ecoles, but double-glazed windows help block out street noise. Each morning, you can enjoy a tray with fresh croissants, cheese, yogurt, and coffee or tea delivered to your room. A private bar is also available on site. Guests give a thumbs-up to the friendly staff.

Free WiFi
Clean, compact guestrooms offer free WiFi and satellite TV. The rooms are traditionally furnished and you'll have handy perks like hair dryers in the bathrooms and in-room safes.

Hôtel Au Royal Cardinal
Beloved otel
I love this hotel for its perfect location and its friendly people! It is close to the universities for meetings, and it is in the most ancient part of Paris.

Hôtel Au Royal Cardinal
cleaners in the morning extremely noisy. You can hear everything from the other rooms.The hotel is in a good location. They use the old system every time I left the room I had to drop off the keys at reception. One night I came in late and door of hotel was open and my key was on the top of the desk. No staff. Anyone could have come in and taken the key to enter my room. I did not complain as there was no one to complain to. You pay for what you get I suppose.

Very Good8,0
Value stay
Hotel is fine, no frills, clean place and friendly staff. Bed was not the most comfortable and shower pressure was weak, other than that, definitely a good value for the price and good location very close to the 10 line on metro and close to river.
