the location of the hotel is good, quite but not too far from the metro and everything else. it´s just not a four star hotel...maybe if they get stars for having a roof or electricity ;)
Villa Pantheon was in a fantastic location. Easy walk to St. germain, Notre dame, and a lot of the sites. Staff was super nice and knowledgeable about how to get around the city. Hotel was very clean also. Rooms were slightly small but that is expected in old European cities.
The tranquility, the design of the interiors, the view from the balcony and good geographical possition.
Great Location, reception staff were helpful and friendly.The room was comfortable and cleaned dailly. I think the Hotel is a bit 'tired' and requires some investment, one of the glass panels on the entrance door had a large crack and there was a missing button in the lift, overall the hotel was looking a bit shabby and in need of refurbishment. Also all tv channels were french, usually a hotel of this standard will have news channels etc as a minimum and/or internet access in the room through the TV.
Centrally located in the latin quarter next to St Germain, facilities were good, personnel was extremely helpful and friendly, A bit small
The hotel itself is kept quite well and all of the staff was exceptionally nice. The bartender will tell you you're beautiful then offer you a glass of prosecco then explain what it is. The rooms are large but they didn't feel like anything special. They just felt outdated but not in the way I thought it would be. I was kind of expecting a little more oomph in the furniture but it was just regular boring hotel furniture. The bathroom, however, was excellent. Vanities with two mirrors a tub that is actually big enough to get in if you like baths. The decor felt like it was attempting to be fancy but as soon as you tried to take a picture you could tell it wasn't. I appreciated it nonethelesss. If you are awake watching French tv you can't understand at 2am like we were, I can tell you there's a place around the corner that sells sandwiches and pastries (probably more but I didn't really investigate too hard). These sandwiches will look like they're probably going to be stale and you have no idea what you're about to pay for but it was one of my favorite meals. And they're absolutely massive. If you walk across the street from the hotel and go down the hill from the light you'll run into it just past the little grocery store. If that doesn't make sense just ask the front desk guy at 2am and he'll at least point you to the grocery store. Also, probably one of my favorite moments in Paris. Walking about town at 2 am completely alone to find ciggies and food in my pajamas. The ac. We were ground level so sleeping with window was awkward but we had to for a little bit at one point because it got so hot in the room. And this was in October. So the rooms definitely hold heat well.
The hotel was clean, the staff friendly and perfectly located for our purposes, however I am glad that our room was at the front of the hotel and not at the back some other people were asking to change rooms from the back to the front of the hotel. Like a lot of french hotels, there was no complimentary tea, coffee or water in the room which would have been most gratefully received after a long journey.
The staff was great, particlarly Alikhan, as well as Kim. Nice ambience. Great location.
Front desk staff very helpful and friendly The drilling in the wall that started promptly at 9:00 am
Front desk was excellent, very friendly - answered all questions satisfactorily. Room was good - excellent bathroom. For a short stay this was excellent. No ice machine!
Excellent location - very near subway/RER stations, Notre Dame, good restaurants etc! Friendly staff, quiet rooms, nice neighborhood - we are very pleased with our stay! The rooms were perhaps a bit small and the breakfast was very expensive (15€) - but fortunately there are many, many cafés just around the corner.
The location is perfect, staff are lovely and nice relatively inexpensive restuarants near by. We booked a triple de luxe room and had to ask for extra towels etc. The third bed was a put up bed, thou relatively comfortable.
location and style of hotel
Clean and responsible staff, good bell staff. Very expensive given what it is. Wifi is horrible throughout hotel. 3rd party website logon problem that management had no idea about.
not much room too small, no faciliies, ocation not as expected
Great modern decor in st Michel
Wonderful area. No bar area
Very modern, new and luxurious hotel Small rooms though
Crisp-clean, modern design, location A mirror and a shelf in a bathroom would be useful
The staff were courteous and extremely helpful, rooms tidy and the beds were the most comfortable we have ever stayed in! We were in Paris for the weekend as a couple and had a fantastic stay at the hotel. Location is ideal and we would highly recommend to any friends/colleagues looking to stay in Paris. I dont like the 'room number' signs on the bedroom doors. That is literally the worst I can say about the hotel!
The room was compact but really well designed and stylish. The staff were really friendly and helpful. It didn't feel like just another chain hotel. The gym wasn't available which was very inconvenient for us but as it was being renovated it will be lovely when finished. It is a small space and there are no weights but good quality aerobic machines running and a cross trainer. Also there is a large park 5 mins up the road.
location could not control the room temperature as it was fall and the individual room air conditioning had been turned off in order for the building heat to be turned on. Subsequently, the rooms became too hot.
Staff. Clean. Location. Room a bit small. No morning coffee. No free breakfast.
The staff and the vaulted breakfast room. Sites and Metro are not close. I found it a bit difficult to get to these and I have stayed in Paris many times.
Second time at hotel, great location
great design of the room, top floor (6th) was excellent, and you could not beat the TV in the bathroom mirror. really happy with this perfectly located gem.
Friendly, efficient staff. Nicely designed interior and excellent location. Comfortable room. We will definitely stay there again.
The location, it was in an exellent square in front of university sorbonne . Big rooms for hotel in paris. Beautiful rooms with very nice architecture view. perhaps a little more of cheese and ham in breakfast
The front desk staff was excellent and very helpful in all ways. None to comment on
The best in Select Hotel is location. It is situated in the center of Paris and it has good neighborhood with Sorbona and Luxemburg park. Muy bien. The room was too small for me and for people from wide area countries.
It would be better to have wooden floor than carpet in the room. A shower stall rather than a bathtub would be more convenient. Breakfast a bit too light and with poor variety
The hotel is in a great location and the lobby and other public facilities were beautiful. The staff was friendly and very helpful. We also liked that there were several restaurants all within the same square as the hotel. The rooms were tiny and the bathroom made me feel a bit claustrophobic. Also, the Internet only worked during the day.
great location, great soundproof windows!unusually beautiful interior decoration! breakfast generous for paris conditions! if you weigh more than 50 kilos, do not go to ther bathroom-you may get stuck..
For this part of Paris the rooms are very nice and good value, with nice design and very comfortable beds. Internet in the rooms was not free, but at least available.
Very good location, very fancy common spaces (hall, breakfast room, reception). The room at the sixth floor was good, but not as great as common spaces. Bathtube/shower uncomfortable (without hang up for the shower and without shower curtain, it's a mess with the water everywhere).
Staff at the reception were helpful though they tried too hard to sell their shuttle service to the airport. The room was small, quaint, and the cleaning left a few things to be desired - all this for not exactly the cheapest price makes this hotel a bad value for money.
Location is excellent, in the 5th Ardt, but not too touristy or noisy. Hotel clean, classic but not fancy. We had a good discount price through booking.com (90euros instead of 162euros at the door).We initially wanted a room looking over the Arenes, behind the hotel which is very quiet, but the concierge was very nice and let us visit several available rooms. We ended up choosing one on the street side, more comfortable and the double windows gave excellent noise insulation. Rooms are not spacious, like in any Parisian hotels.
The bed was very comfortable and the sheets were fantastic. We had a view of the Roman arena which was nice - at night it was very quiet. The front desk staff was terrific!! It was a very small room and the hairdryer didn't work properly. Also, there was no free wi-fi. The website did not indicate that you had to purchase it.
Very good location in Quartier Latin. Very closo to metro station and bicycle Velib point The hotel has no wifi.
location room too small for three adults, more suited to a couple with a young child. Room too hot. Bathroom needs updating.
We had an excellent view, the window looked at the Arena. The bathroom was surprisingly clean and large compared to other hotels in Paris in the same price category.
Hotel in good location for left bank locations. Staff were helpful. Breakfast a bit disappointing if you don't get to the breakfast room early - the scrambled eggs were all gone!
Best location for sightseeing
Very good location! Right next to the jardim de luxembourg. Nice room, with a view - we could see the eiffel tower. Staff was very friendly, we were travelling with a small child.
very convient location, staff very friendly and helpfull.
The location is very good, 100 meters from a RER (train line that connects to the metro). Breakfast was ok. We were surprised in a negative way when we got to our room since the pictures from the site showed a better looking and newer room, however when we arrived it was not that way. When talking to the staff they said that the room we saw was in a category above the one we had paid.
Excellent location, very helpful staff, clean and bright rooms, excellent linens - we are satisfied absolutely. Nothing!
Brilliant location, clean, friendly staff. Very old and shabby rooms. Asked for a non smoking room, but got a smoking room.
Location Specifically requested and contacted them for a double bed not two singles, upon arriving they gave us two singles, were too booked to exchange us till the next day and could only offer a mediocre room the following day. Not very impressed considering i had a verbal confirmation over the phone
Central location Superior room was really only of a standard level.
The front desk staff were helpful and friendly and spoke English. Our room was small but comfortable with a little balcony that had a view of the Eiffel Tower which sparkled at night (on the hour... very magical). The location was perfect since we are great fans of the Luxembourg gardens. Breakfast was from 7 a.m. until 10 a.m. and if you arrived after nine they did not replenish what they were serving.
I have a sweet spot for Luxembourg Gardens, so this hotel could not have been in a more perfect spot. Huge bonus, it's steps from RER B, so getting to and from CDG could not be easier!
The location and staff were great The hotel room was too hot.
friendly staff. Situation of hotel. Small selection at breakfast.
Excellent location. Unwelcoming staf on day of arrival. LImited TV channels options. No "do not disturb" note in the room and maid entering without warning.
Very polite personel and the position was good.
Excelent location, silent at night, kindness and professionalism of staff, good room size, comfort. Breakfast should be included in the room rate.
the staff were really helpful. the rooms comfortable the kettle did not work
The location is convenient to reach RER, but there are neither shops nor good restaurants in immediate proximity. The canteen is very small, the breakfast selection is poor.
The Relaise Saint Jaques is a very fine well run hotel close to the Sorbon university in Paris and is idealy situated close to the Latin Quarter and the splendid Luxemburg gardens, The room was splendid with a good sized bathroom, and the staff on reception and the staff in the bufet breakfast room were very friendly and helpful all the time nothing was too much trouble. nothing i did not like.
The hotel is very clean and all of the facilities have been updated. On a very pleasant, tree-lined quiet street near the Luxembourg Gardens. The room was a bit small given the (French government-awarded) 4-star rating. The muzak in the hallways is very annoying. A shower curtain would help keep the bathroom from getting flooded. Internet service should be for 24 hours, not two hours.
the kindness of the staff the room was too small and uncomfortable to be a "superior double".
Very friendly and helpful front desk staff and convenient breakfast. Very small rooms, but not unexpected for inner-city Paris.
a nice and very central hotel. reccommended
Great location in latin qtr, very nice room for the price, free wifi and reasonable minibar prices We arrived early and they did nothing to accommodate us, in fact our room was ready late - the elevator is miniscule and doesn't go all the way up. Breakfat is super expensive I never tried it
location the bathroom & toilet are open each to the other. the public area is tiny.
View from the small balcony (room 61) Shower pressure and temperature were erratic
Unbelievably great location within walking to distance to Notre Dame and Blvd St. Michel. Great restaurants/cafes within steps; Paris's best rated croissants and boulangeries within 1/4 mile. Great front desk staff. Quality of towels and bathroom soaps, etc., were not great. Rooms are small compared to many but comfortable and very clean.
I liked staff a lot, very friendly. Vanessa and Greg were very helpful. I liked cleanness in the room and the location. It was perfect. I'd choose the same hotel another time. I didn't like the alarm at 5 a.m. the first morning. We were really tired and wanted to sleep. After that alarm couldn’t get to sleep anymore.
The hotel was in a great location, clean, and friendly. We accidentally left our iPad in the room the day we left for the airport. Via email at the airport, they found our iPad and shipped it soon after. We are very thankful and would highly recommend anyone staying there.
Helpful staff and good value Broken lift but it was repaired fairly quickly and lady receptionist came to the rescue and carried my bags up to fourth floor. Thanks.
Good location, price of the room The temperature in the room was very low, warm conditions weren't acceptable.
Staff and location
The hotel was in a great location but there are numerous hotels in this area so look around. The room had a balcony which was great. The air conditioning did not work and this was one of the main reasons that I picked this hotel. The rooms are tiny and the lift is the smallest I have ever been in, it literally fits 2 regular size people comfortably and maybe 3 if everyone knows each other, otherwise 3 is way too many! However the location is good & the Staff were friendly and helpful.
It was clean and the staff were very helpful; they spoke enough English to answer all questions.
Proximity to metro station - also close to main streets that were busy all the time. Easy to get around. Easy to hear noises from other rooms, but not too bad.
I paid 94 euro for a very Spartan room, not even shampoo in the room.
Excellent staff The first night we had trouble sleeping on the roll instead of pillows. We asked for pillows, and that was no problem.
I discovered an area of Paris I did not previously know.
The location was perfect and we really felt we got value for money Cleaning was a little bit early and noisy
Great location No airconditioning, the room got quite hot at night (very noisy if the window was open)
great location room was tiny. not much bigger than the bed, and the bed wasn't big. impossible to get into the shower.
very nice staff, good location (near Cardinal Lemoine - 100 m) uncomfortable bed, noisy room, old furniture
Perfect location 10 minutes to go to the Notre Dame, Islands, historical center of Paris and just few steps from the 2 metro stations. WLAN (for free!) works pretty well. Receptionists are very friendly and helpful, English speeking fluently. This is my second stay in Royal Cardinal hotel and since that my first choice in Paris. The only one socket you have in the room to charge your mobile phone. Rooms are very small what is not an exception in Paris, but they are clean and cute.
Hotel staff is very warm
nice breakfast elevator too small and slow; old furniture in room; style not cosy, not fresh
We loved the hotel's location in the Latin Quarter. Lots of places and shops to walk around. Easy access to metro station. Easy walk to Notre Dame. Our room was a bit warm. Tough to control room temperature.
Great stay, good location close to Notre-Dame. Good front room and excellent and helpful staff.
1. The Bathroom was excellent, something I consider very important when I'm staying at a Hotel. 2.They have free internet connexion for all room guests. 3. The tenmprerature of the room was constant always and we never had problems of beeing cold al night. That 3 things I liked best. 1. The last day, my free internet did not work and they could not give me any solution. 2. Above my room for one night there where people partying!! nobody cared except for us that were below them and we could hear everthing stamping, yelling, laughs..
Homy place in a nice neiberhood nothing
Nice location, small but clean and simple rooms Fire alarm went off 4 times during 3 nigts
Excellent Location. Staff Friendly and helpful. Connections to Airport by RER just about 5 minutes walk. Excellent resturants nearby. Berdroom quiet small but typical for Paris
Very clean hotel ideally situated. Just park the car and walk all over Paris. Rooms were rather small and very warm. Parking was not very close to hotel.
The staff were very helpful and accomodating. The hotel is located in one of the most beautiful areas of Paris and very close to many sites: Louvre, Notredame, Ile St. Louis, Musee d'orsay, Marais area. A major metro station is also very close by. The room was a bit small.
I liked the location of the hotel - the St Germain area was a great district for cafes and dinning. St Germain has a village like feel and it felt safe for a single female to be out alone even in the evening. It is also very convienent to the centre of the city and many tourist attractions. The rooms can be noisy - sound travels between the guest rooms.
Closed to the Notre Dame. Small room without breakfast.
The location is good for anyone who wishes to spend time in the Latin Quarter. The lighting in the room was not sufficient.. the bathroom was adequately illuminated but the bedroom was certainly not, it was impossible to read far away from the window!!
location was great room was smaller than advertised; was a family room; advertise to have one double bed and 2 or 3 single beds; in actuality had one double, one single and a couch that was not made up as a bed; we had four full size people, so that was frustrating
The location and price were great and the area was a really nice. We requested a double room and got given a twin room. Also the room was a bit tatty in places.
Great location - the St Germain area was a great district for cafes and dinning. St Germain has a village like feel and it felt safe to be out in the evening. It is also very convienent to the centre of the city and many tourist attractions. Small lift
Breakfast baguettes only if breakfast is free which you dont get on booking,com, but there was a major mix up and they decided to give me free breakfast. I wouldnt pay for their brekkie otherwise. Bed and room was clean and new-ish. I arrived 10:00 too early for check in, left my bags & wandered Paris. On return at 16:30 I was told there was an issue with my room and sent on my own to another hotel 2 star down the road for the night until the next day when a room would be available... they give away your room esp if someone is going to pay a higher rate than you do. TV - only had 2 channels..??
the hotel staff were very polite , helpful and spoke good english , we were able to book in earlier than check in time as room was ready - also held our luggage when we checked out until we needed a cab which they booked for us. Nothing bad about the hotel except the tiny lift ( our room was on 5th floor) but that is to be expected in Parisien Hotels !!
The location was excellent, the managers (especially Paul) were friendly and professional, and we were offered two choices to change to a larger room, with the opportunity to look at both and then select what we wanted. Very minor, but having either a bar or ice machine would have been nice.
The hotel is in a great location, with a city bus stop nearby. The hotel is very quiet, considering its location. A member of the staff gave us an excellent recommendation on a nearby restaurant.
the location is good. lots of restaurants nearby. rooms are a bit small.
Excellent location. Nice modern interior of hotel adn relaxed atmosphere. Very good breakfast buffet. Check until 12!
the area nothing to add
Good location and breakfast.
We stayed in one of the top floor loft rooms at the hotel. It was absolutely fabulous with its modern decor and balcony over looking the streets below.
the hotel close the metro & rer station and also St.Michel / St. German street. The air condition wasnt work. The rooms are so close each other.
The hotel is conveniently located near several Metro stations as well as great local restaurants and shopping. A "chain" grocery store is one block away to stock up on stables and such. Just a couple of blocks also from some main tourist attractions including the Cluny and the Parthenon. Breakfast was above average. only ironing board is located in the basement where the laundry is done.
The location good but the price were high, but it's Paris... Rooms were clean. Breakfast is 12 eur but. RER B to Airport etc is near by. Rooms are a bit worn out, but they are clean. They were also small and bed fairly narrow.
Its central The hotel needs modernisation. There is a difference between the external look of the hotel and the decoration in the rooms and hallways which need serious upgrade.
Good location, helpful staff
Rooms were clean. The hotel is in a decent location, but close to the subway so it made getting to and from different attractions was relatively easy. Staff was nice and courteous. Although the breakfast is good, for the same price you could get hot meal just down the street. Beds were a little firm.
Clean facilities and friendly staff. We felt very welcome. Breakfast was good but nothing special.
Great location and very helpfull staff,clean and comfortable bedroom.No complaints with breakfast. Very small lift.
Breakfast was great and the location was perfect. Very close to the B line so it made the trip to CDG very easy.
Excellent staff, great location.
location was good, staff friendy quite basic facilities and small bathroom for price
Hotel staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel is well located close to a Maubert metro station and you can easily walk to Notre Dame Cathedral and Jadin du Luxembourg. Room and lift were tiny.
I stayed here when I was in Paris for a short stay a few years ago. It was lovely and now the remodel has made it lovelier. Clean, neat as a pin and well-serviced. Thank you. Teeny room for three
bathroom too small, sauna and whirlpool did not work
Location, room fairly large Bathroom too small & objects poorly located, only one chair for double room
the location cleanliness,small bathroom
Clean, quiet hotel with friendly staff. Very small lift. It was difficult to find the parking place for my car.
Excellent location for metro and airport trains. Good restaurants in the area and within 10min walk to Notre Dame. Small room and bathroom, but adequate if intending to get out and about. Did find other peoples clothes under the bed which begs the question how well they clean the rooms.
The staff were all extremely helpful and we loved the fact that the hotel was so close to everything we wanted to see and yet so quiet.
Rooms were very comfortable and clean, quite newly decorated and refitted. The staff were excellent and most spoke very good English. The location is excellent, a quiet street in a central location with easy travel links and lovely part of the city.
location no tea or coffee facilities
Quiet location; helpful staff; proximity to good restaurant; internet access; place to meet academic colleague
Fantastic hotel, very clean and great staff :o)
Location very good. In walking distance to most attractions and close to metro and RER. Superior room was large after French standards. Nice hotel and only limited traffic noice.
Quality of the fitout of the room. Very clean. Air conditioning unit out side the window was noisy. We stayed in room 602.
The best thing is lokation. The glass transparent door in bath/toilet. The room with 2 splitted beds is very small.
The most comfortable bed in 5 weeks of travel in N.Spain & SW France! Excellent location for sightseeing. No.
