I’ve stayed here twice, and I’ve enjoyed both visits. The location is easily walkable from the subway, and is in the Latin Quarter which has lots of fun cafes, restaurants, and boutiques nearby. In the summer, I also utilized the bixi bikes nearby for transport.
The staff are friendly and very helpful, too. I’ve opted for private rooms both times I’ve visited, and I really love the renovations that they have done recently. There is also free wifi, and the croissants served at breakfast are very tasty.

Je suis allé deux fois, et j’ai apprécié les deux visites. L’emplacement est facilement accessible à pied du métro, et se trouve dans le Quartier Latin qui a beaucoup de cafés amusantes, restaurants et boutiques à proximité. Durant l’été, j’ai aussi utilisé les vélos BIXI à proximité des transports.
Le personnel est amical et très utile, aussi. J’ai opté pour les chambres privées les deux fois où je suis allé, et je l’aime vraiment les rénovations qu’ils ont fait récemment. Il ya aussi un accès wifi gratuit, et les croissants servis au petit déjeuner sont très savoureux.
