Rooms are small but normal size for the area. The staff was wonderful throughout our stay, very helpful! The lift is very small, myself and 2 daughters could fit in but not with luggage, again apparently this is normal for the area and it was...More
No-frills hotel, you're here for the location only. 15 minutes walk to the Seine, 30 minutes to the Notre Dame and 20 minutes to the Jardin du Luxembourg. A few cheap-ish takeaway joints on Rue de Monge stay open until late, and Rue de Mouffetard...More
The hotel room was very small. Did not have much amenities in the room. The staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel is centrally with a train station minutes away. There were nearby restaurants and a grocery store. I enjoyed the breakfast. The area is...More
Stayed for 2 nights for a business trip. Location wise, it is superb. But twin room is too tight for 2 people. Water tank in the bathroom kept on flushing itself. Friendly staff but it didn't exceed my expectations for the price I paid.
My wife and I stayed at this little gem in November 2008. It appears they have recently done some renovations; the rooms are "cozy", but warm. We did not pack light and had to lug suitcases up several flights of stairs. The proximity to Notre...More

The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life, architectural splendour and ongoing merriment. The small streets are filled with classical buildings, student bars and lively eateries while the squares are dominated by historic monuments. The area is defined by the 800-year-old Sorbonne University, where Latin once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which celebrates the great men and women of France. During
the day students rush from classes to the library and intellectuals people watch from the terraced cafés. As night time falls the surrounding establishments fill up and the merriment really begins. The liveliest parts are around Rue Mouffetard, lined with crêperies and international street food eateries, and Place de la Contrescarpe characterised by terraced brasseries, this neighbourhood provides real nourishment for the mind, belly, and soul.
I am wondering why English TV is expected in France, especially in a 2 star hotel. After all, we dont show French TV in the UK or in the US.
Why do English speakers assume that it will be spoken everywhere they go?

Oh, that's an easy question. English the 3rd most spoken language in the world behind Chinese and Spanish, but generally whether in Asia or Europe etc... English is widely spoken as an international language! Where as French is not even in the top ten most commonly spoken international languages. I must also disagree because in Australia , America and the U.K. (and many more counties) there are actually French programs on television including documentary's, news and films! Many other countries I have traveled in , and stayed in 2 star hotel always have English channels even if it is only the two main news channels CNN and BBC. For example, I am now in Vietnam and there are many English channels on the television, it is the same in most of South East Asia, there is not French Channels here! Why would there be?
In 2013 more than 80 million people visited France, so I don't feel that requesting an English channel even in a two star hotel is too much to ask!
My question to you would have to be "why do the French have such an aversion to speaking English"?
I stayed in the south of France for 3 months early this year and it was very funny how many French people expected me to speak their language and would not try English (even though they knew some) I have now traveled to almost 54 countries, am I expected to speak each and every individual language from every country I travel to? I don't think so.....Only France. Interesting!
