Good 7,2 From 184 reviews

Very good 8,0
I've stayed here 10 or more times over the past 20 years. Nothing much changes, and that's not entirely good -- the wear and tear is showing. The location is still perfect -- bars, restaurants, patisseries steps from the door, the RER a block away, the Pantheon five minutes' walk. The staff are always welcoming. The rooms are basic. I've always felt that this hotel provided good value for the money -- but let's spiff it up a bit!

Fair 4,0
Very tired guest room.
The baseboards in the bathroom were filthy and the box springs under the mattresses were not covered by the dated bedspreads. Windows painted shut and very tired looking room that hasn’t been updated for many years. The bed was comfortable however, and the bathroom was large in comparison to the room.

Excellent Location
The hotel is in an excellent location. Within walking distance to several restaurants, bakeries, landmarks, and public transport. It includes basics, towels, shampoo, soap. There is nothing fancy about the hotel but it was exactly what we needed, just a clean place to sleep. Staff was very friendly. My only complaints are that there were always mosquitos in the room but no windows were ever left open, and even though we put the Do Not Disturb sign on our door, maintenance still went in the room to clean while we were away.

Great location, great old hotel!
Great location; easy walk to the Pantheon, Luxembourg, the Cluny. Slightly longer walk to Montparnasse Ave and cemetery, Musee D’Orsay and elsewhere. Bus stop right outside and a tres bon patisserie beside the hotel (not open on weekends) The beds and pillows were very comfortable and the bathroom was large (although the shower was not). We recommend this hotel!

Little gem
This hotel is a little gem in a great location. Walkable to Luxembourg RER station and near most attractions. Although basic, the price reflects this but we had a warm welcome, it was clean and comfortable.
