Reasons for trip


Situated in the Latin quarter of Paris & close to the Saint Germaine de Pre Metro station. It is in that quaint part of town where the streets are narrow & often cobbled. I'd probably class this as a boutique hotel, a far cry from the chain hotels. We were enthusiastically greeted at reception & establishing that my French was pretty limited, he seamlessly switched to English to complete the check in. We had a nice room on the ground floor with sitting area, double bed & separate bathroom & toilet. The room is a rustic style' with a stone wall on one side & windows onto the internal courtyard. The room had safe, hair dryer & TV & was very comfortable. All the staff were very helpful & polite. Breakfast was included & was continental style buffet, although you could order an omelette. A very pleasant breakfast could be had to set yourself up for the days sight seeing. Each of the bedrooms are of individual design, with the hotels's main claim to fame being that Ernest Hemingway stayed in one of the rooms. Within a few hundred yards is the St Germain du Pres Church & allegedly the two oldest cafes in Paris. It's a very comfortable & safe feeling area to stroll around with plenty of cafe/restaurants nearby. A few points to note. The rooms have radiators but no air conditioning, so this was fine even though the daytime temperatures reached 23C but I'm not sure how comfortable they would have been if it had not cooled quite a bit at nighttime. Our room (38) was directly onto the inner courtyard which was very pleasant & although people were allowed to take breakfast n the courtyard they were not allowed to do this until after 9am. Unfortunately people did sit in the courtyard until quite late to chat, so if you are a light sleeper I would recommend you request an alternative room. I read in reviews prior to attending the hotel that service at breakfast e.g. To get omelettes or clear the tables was slow. That turned out to be true, however, it was somehow conducive to the relaxed atmosphere at the hotel & I simply requested my omelette from reception (a mere 10 steps away) & it was ordered immediately & arrived promptly. I thought the charm of the hotel & the lovely staff made this a place worth staying & I would stay here again if I returned to Paris.
