Mixed feelings about this place
So I’m just gonna give you my pros and cons
- staff great
- Great value for something so close to the river
- Nearby food up until 12:30am even later
- nearby convenience stores
Returned from another wonderful stay at our favourite hotel. Great breakfast and plenty of it. The staff are great - especially Anna - really helpful. Our room was lovely with a balcony outside the bathroom and another outside the bedroom with a great view of...More
An OK stay if you like tiny rooms and tiny bathrooms.The rooms for three are not spacious at all, and it is not air-conditioned. Plug points are difficult to find and located in odd inconvenient places. I did not choose to go back there when...More
My 2 friends and I stayed in a triple room and were impressed by the cute little balcony in our room which had a gorgeous view out to the charming Parisian streets. Although the room is tiiiiny and needs updating, we had a fantastic time...More
Located with pretty much everything within walking distance this was perfect for us. The area itself has everything you need with plenty of nice places to eat.

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.

If you take RER C, you can transfer at Gare d'Austerlitz and then take metro line 10 direction Boulogne and get off at the next stop Cardinale LeMoine. Exit the station, walk down the hill 1 block, make a left on Rue des Ecoles and the hotel will be a few doors on your left.

There is no air conditioning in the rooms at the Royal Cardinal. We were there last June and it was a problem--a big one. You had a choice: open the French doors for air and listen to the very noisy bar right across the street. The talking & laughter went till the dawn. Impossible to sleep. Or close the doors to keep the crowd noise down--and suffer in the hot room. I would never stay there again, especially when there were similar hotels a block up the street advertising that they have air conditioning.
