This is a very smart smaller hotel in a lovely part of the left bank, just across the road from a major university buildings. Great staff, very helpful. Room cleaning was very late on one day which was inconvenient, but cleaning was good.

I had a great stay at Hotel Design Sorbonne. The room was small, but well appointed. Very comfortable. There was a problem with the seal at the bottom of the shower door, so at times water would flow through to the floor. It could be avoided by angling the shower head away from the door. We noted this to the hotel staff, and they were very appreciative of the feedback. Otherwise, the shower stream was strong and the water very warm, which was wonderful! Toiletries were very nice. The towels were a bit thin, but nice enough. This hotel is very close to everything. Great location, a short walk from the Luxembourg metro stop. Everyone on staff was super friendly and helpful! I liked that there was free WiFi, but Secure WiFi would be preferred. We mentioned this to the staff. Overall, I definitely would stay here again!

It's a good three stars hotel. The location is amazing and if you stay in a room in a higher floor you'll have a beautiful view of the Pantheon's dome and from the Sorbonne facade. The vintage like decoration is similar to the website, but I expected the room to be bigger. In my case I found the bathroom size quite good. I had a problem with a noisy heater installed just beside the head end of the bed. Luckily the hotel had a spare room and I could move to another one. The Apple Imac available in the room is handy if you need or prefer to access the internet from a desktop but as a TV set the screen is way too small. I expected more from the 14 euros breakfast buffet. The food replacement was faulty even when I went in the beginning of the breakfast time. I would come back for the location and the attentive staff but the cost benefit could be a bit better.

We stayed at Hotel Design Sorbonne for 3 nights, as part of a Secret Escapes deal. We were in a superior room which was small/compact. There was a standard size double bed and ensuite shower room. There wasn't much room for much else other than our suitcase. Our room overlooked the courtyard. There is a small lift to each floor. The staff at the hotel were all friendly and there is 24/7 manned access. Breakfast was spread out to ensure that people were able to be seated as the breakfast room was compact - could accommodate 14 people in one go. Consisted of standard continental breakfast, meat, croissants/rolls/toast, cheese, eggs and pancakes with juice, tea and coffee. There was plenty and it was replenished frequently. The local is good - less than 10 min walk to River Seine and Notre Dame and about 5 min walk to Pantheon and Jardin du Luxembourg. Metro stops nearby 5-7 min walk. We enjoyed the Hotel and as we didn't spend much time at the hotel other than sleeping the room size did not impact our enjoyment.

Hotel had some eclectic style, nice area. Staff were friendly and helpful. Rooms a little smaller than the website eludes too. Breakfast was basic but good, with the option to self cook fresh eggs. Not sure our bathroom cups were cleaned daily and towels a little on the thin side and a little small, would like expect better. Shower was powerful and plenty of hot water.
