We had a room in the main building, at the end of a cobblestone alley and well away from the street. The room wasn't huge but it was comfortable, clean and very quiet. The whole place has a kind of country-cottage feel about it, even...More

Right up the street from a Metro and tucked into a courtyard, this hotel is quiet, charming, reasonably priced, with a terrific petite dejeuner. The staff went out of their way to locate a small (but expensive) rechargeable battery that I couldn't find, and thought...More

The Hotel des Grandes Ecoles was a great find. Located up the Rue de Cardinal Le Moine from the Ile St Louis, it is accessed through a courtyard that provides privacy and quiet, in the middle of Paris. It is near the university, and the...More

student bars and lively eateries while the squares are
dominated by historic monuments. The area is defined
by the 800-year-old Sorbonne University, where Latin

Yes. No TV in the room, but shampoo. Also the WiFi a bit dicey but came good over time. Still a fun hotel in a very good spot - so I'd be tempted even in the absence of free shampoo. Just in case you're American - no... More
