Great location, clean room but too small‼️ My sister and I are petite but even we found this room very tiny with no place to hang your clothes and to put your toiletries. I can just imagine if you have large luggages, I don't know where you would place them without getting in your way or without tripping. We didn't...

I stayed here with my adult son for a week. The room was very clean and although I was expecting small this was a smaller room than I had stayed in Paris before. We were not in the hotel other than to sleep and shower. The beds were comfortable, shower great. There was not a lot of room for luggage...

This was a great place to spend my week in Paris. Right off the RER and Metro lines, so very easy to get to from the airport, or other destinations. Close to so much activity! It took me maybe 10-15 mins to walk to Notre Dame. As a solo traveler, I felt very safe in the area, even walking home...

Dear Bonnie, It is a real pleasure to discover your lovely review about your recent visit in our hotel.

I think the Grand Hotel des Balcons must be a Parisian institution. I love the Belle Époque style. In a quiet street near the Odeon metro, small but well designed rooms, good showers, very clean. Good breakfast, helpful receptionist who made bookings for us. Lots of little restaurants near by and a nice area to walk in. We have been...

Clean, comfortable, superb location & inexpensive for Paris. Most comfortable bed ever. Desk clerks pleasant & helpful. Have stayed here many times over many years, but believe it is under new ownership, and they really seem to care. Terrific buffet breakfast extra, but unusually large for France. Many Parisian highlights walkable. Also very close to metro & bus lines. For...

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.
