I admit to practice-walking to the hotel via Google Street View. It was easy, arriving via RER B, using the Cluny-La Sorbonne exit on Blvd. St.-Germain. The Odéon Métro stop (statue of Danton) is closer. The local street network includes several that converge on the Odéon

Though rather small, the room was clean, well equiped and quiet. Breakfast was OK. Reception desk was both friendly and effective, to the point. A 24/24 access is an asset. Last but not least, location, at short walking distance of the Odeon metro station and the Jardins du

"Courtyard side rooms feel reasonably sunny, by January standards."
"I asked for a quiet room and it was--on the back I believe, no traffic noise although it is on a quiet street anyway."
"Our hotel room did not have A/C."
"We were in 105, first floor- no rooms are big in Paris, this was close to the lift."
"If street noise keeps you up at night, request a room facing the courtyard and NOT the street."
US$117 - US$282 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
