Our stay at Royal Saint Michel was fantastic. Great location, nice room, friendly staff (specially Claire) and anot overall feeling of a home away from home. What more can you ask for. Steps to the Seine and Notre Dame Cathedral. Walking distance to the Louvre and Musee D'Orsay. Restaurants and cafes abound in this perfect location. Overall a perfect Vacation....

My parents are in their 70s, with physical disabilities, and felt ripped off by this hotel. The following is in the words of my mother: "We arrived on August 4, early at 9am to Best Western Premier Royal Saint Michel, on 3, Boulevard, Saint Michel, Paris. Our room was not ready but we could leave our luggage in the back...

Dear dersi, These are heavy accusations, which we take very seriously. After some research, here is our understanding of the situation. The amount your parents paid in cash at check out was for the city tax (9,92€) that we can see have been registered correctly. However, they left the hotel without paying for breakfasts, that is why the amount of...

This was our first trip to Paris, somewhere I've always wanted to go and it did not disappoint. Hotel Royal Saint Michel is in an amazing location, just a short walk from Notre Dame and surrounded by wonderful restaurants and bars. The room was lovely. So nice and clean, our sheets and towels were changed daily and the bed was...

I stayed here for only one night, but I have to echo the sentiments of most of the other reviews, this hotel was all about its central location and within walking distance of some of the great tourist attractions in the city and very close to the metro. The rooms were certainly small for a double, and a really tiny...

This is a really good hotel in an amazing location, just metres from the Saint Michel metro/RER B stop & 400 metres from the Notre Dame.

Dear lichtertal, Thank you very much for your comment. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay. Our bedding is indeed top quality, we believe the quality of the sleep is very important.

The location of the hotel was brilliant. Very close to most tourist attractions. The room was a bit small for a double room but this seems to be normal for Paris. Very tiny elevator could hardly fit 2 people. Staff at reception were particularly rude barely paying you any attention when you arrived or wanted to ask questions. On one...

Neighbourhood Profile
Odeon / Saint-Michel
As the bustling center of entertainment for the residents of the Rive Gauche, the activity at Odéon never stops. Boulevards are lined with traditional cafes, restaurants, and boutique cinemas. The streets surrounding the fountain at Saint-Michel provide eateries from around the world. Lively bars are just next door and the prototypical terraced French brasserie is on every corner. The setting for this area is second to none; the Haussmann-style boulevards are contrasted by monumental architecture and overshadowed by the iconic Notre Dame, all within a moment’s walk from the Seine. This neighbourhood's world-famous bookshops, cafés, and streets will not fail to impress you.
