I have been using this hotel for years and I keep coming back. If you are looking for a hotel on a quiet street in a happening neighborhood this is the place for you. The front desk staff is most helpful and the newly renovated rooms beautifully appointed.

The lobby, stairway, and hallway were a little shabby, but clean. The room was wonderful; very clean, modern, and comfortable. The breakfast was sufficient. The staff were very helpful. We would definitely go back!

Situated short walks from Odeon (Metro) and St Michel (Metro/RER), next bustling cafes and restaurants. For me this is the reason for staying here. Convenience and atmosphere made our trip. The hotel is in an old building. Typical, quirky French lift. Very help staff. Great value breakfast compared to what you'll get nearby. The room was small, and a bit...

As I had previously only changed trains in Paris, having decided to take a holiday there I was a little unsure of the best location to stay. Perhaps it was first time lucky but the hotel that we decided on, L’Univers, could not have been better, not only for location in the sense of the ease with which we could...

The hotel is in a great location. You can walk right into the restaurant area of St. Germaine. However, the cost was pretty high and the breakfast for 12euros was not worth it. Better to go out to the local bakery.

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

Neighbourhood Profile
Saint-Germain-des-Pres
In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops, ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants. Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine art school and small museums hide in unassuming squares. The neighbourhood’s namesake church is the oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented musicians every weekend. The Luxembourg Gardens house the national senate, splendid lawns and flourishing flower beds. Famous faces and bourgeois Parisians frequent Saint Germain accompanied by the students of Rue Saint Guillaume and Rue des Saints-Pères. This is a neighbourhood where afternoon people-watching from a café or playing cards in a brasserie are a key part of the daily fabric.
