This hotel is exceptionally located - a 5 minute walk (through busy, lively streets) from St Michel where the RER train from the airport dropped me. Great shopping, nightlife and views within easy walking distance. Everything inside is a little dated - tiny old-fashioned lift and narrow steep stairs - but impeccably clean. My room was small, barely fitted a...

This place was very hard to find, both Google maps and the locals had trouble finding it. However, it is a beautiful hotel that is rustic, yet modern. Our suite faced the very busy road, but we heard nothing at night as we slept. The air conditioning was awesome, given that none of the places we stayed in Normandy had...

The Grand Hotel De L'Univers is a charming small hotel on a side street in the 6th Arrondisement, St. Germain Des Pres. We recently stayed for a few days after a coach tour which ended in Paris. The foyer & bar area is inviting with antique furniture & fresh flowers. The Reception desk staff, special mention to Richard, were all...

Goof Afternoon from Paris, The all team joins me and thanks you for these lovely words regarding your stay with us. Unfortunatly, as everywhere in the very heart of Paris, rooms are not very large.

I have been using this hotel for years and I keep coming back. If you are looking for a hotel on a quiet street in a happening neighborhood this is the place for you. The front desk staff is most helpful and the newly renovated rooms beautifully appointed.

Situated short walks from Odeon (Metro) and St Michel (Metro/RER), next bustling cafes and restaurants. For me this is the reason for staying here. Convenience and atmosphere made our trip.

As I had previously only changed trains in Paris, having decided to take a holiday there I was a little unsure of the best location to stay.

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.
