We have booked three nights before a river cruise. Has anyone stayed here? Looking for suggestions, sights and restaurants in short walking distance. Looks like location is good ( husband does not like to walk) or will we be jumping in a taxi? Thanks to all the experts out there.
It’s a very nice hotel in a great location almost right across the street from the famous St Germain des Près church and the very famous Deux Magots café. I think you’ll be happy staying there.
I haven't stayed there but have done sone sightseeing around that area. To echo Susan, it's a very good location, and booking.com reviews average the hotel in the "Excellent" range so I'd have no hesitation staying there. What to see? Best thing to do is to reference a guidebook and a map as we don't know what sorts of things you're interested in. If your husband doesn't care to walk then some attractions will require transit to access. We trotted all over Paris but did use the handy Metro system a few times when wishing to cover considerable ground faster than we could have on foot. Haven't used taxis.
Historic St Germain des Près church, which Susan mentioned, is close by, and Saint Suplice and Saint-Séverin are within shouting distance as are Jardin du Luxembourg and the excellent Musée de Cluny/Musée national du Moyen Âge. The Louvre is just across Pont de Arts. Lots more would be within what I consider reasonable walking distance but YMMV.
We stayed there this past May. It is a great hotel. It has been recently remodeled. There is a laundry in the lower level that you can use. The staff is delightful. There are many restaurants within walking distance. Our favorite was Le Jacobine. It is about a 10 minute walk.
Thank you for the comments and suggestions. I have been using Google Maps and looks like a ten minute walk will get us to several sights. Did not know about Eglise Saint Severin or Musee De Cluny, great options. Definitely will be going to Le Jacobine for a meal. Bonjour
Sainte-Chapelle and the Conciergerie are abt. 10-12 minute walks away too, depending on how quickly you move. I'd urge your DH to do as much as possible on foot as (IMHO) the best way to experience Paris is from the sidewalks! :O)
I agree with Kathy, the best way to see and experience Paris is by walking and exploring.
Glad to see good reviews, we’ve booked rooms at that hotel in October. We’ve been in the area many times, it’s very nice. You will not have any problems finding restaurants nearby, but I can recommend Semilla for a special dinner https://www.semillaparis.com
Family members always stay here, love the location, and so we plan to when we visit Paris next time. Restaurants recommended nearby are Le Bistro de Paris on rue Lille, Semilla and Boisonnerie and many other good ones at all price levels.
