... on a bed of tiny white stones. We were like errr what is this!? Chris just said it like it was and yelled out “F**K!” hahahaha! We all just burst out laughing then I started snorting like I do, which made everyone laugh even more. Ahh it was a great moment, probably one of those times where you had to be there to appreciate it properly though.

Sacre Couer was a white gem on the landscape and not too dissimilar on the outside from Agra's Taj Mahal I'd visited a few years earlier. Once inside, I was particularly drawn to the multitude of stone archways and beams which held the building together. What I was ...

Instead, the connection was quick and Line 12 to Mairie d’Issy was right there! Whew! I really enjoyed ...

Going through customs in Edinburgh, I again had troubles. I was delayed over an hour, as they looked up my file, tried to make sense of my situation and ...

Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN Left Bank - St Germain Paris
Great location in St. Germain within walking distance of Notre Dame, Louvre, Champs Elysees, Musee d'Orsay, Le Marais etc. Room were a good value. Having breakfast included at a Paris Hotel is a plus. Room was small but clean, bathroom updated, mattresses could be better. Staff was friendly and helpful. We would definitely return.
Left Bank is my holiday choice.
The location is excellent. The beds are extremely comfortable. The air conditioning is as good as any top 5 star business hotel.
Great value, location, and charm
My husband and I were quite pleased with the hotel and would definately go back. The rooms, though kind of small, were comfortable for Paris standards. Also the decor was kind of dark for my taste. However, the place was very clean - especially the updated bathroom. The front desk staff, with the exception of one woman, were very pleasant and especially helpful. The breakfast was nothing fancy but was adequate.
Truly charming and quite a value. Also, an excellent location!!
Best Western Left Bank is great
While there are so many good hotels in Paris, one of my favorites is the "Best Western Hotel Left Bank", located right in St. Germain des Pres. The rooms, while smallish, are beautifully appointed in rich wood, views of the Paris rooftops, exposed wood beamed ceilings, beautiful marble bathrooms. The staff there is extremely pleasant and helpful and totally bi-lingual!! The location is perfect...10 minute walk to Notre Dame, 15 minutes to the Louvre...and just 1-2 minutes from many cafes, restaurants, shops......this is a wonderful, well priced place to be in Paris!!
After reading the rave reviews here and on other sites, my husband and I expected much more from this small hotel. I reserved a deluxe quality large room (with queen size bed) on the Best Western website and requested that the room have a view of some kind. When we arrived, we were given a room on the third floor with a window facing a very dark inner courtyard with three beds - definitely not what we expected (or requested). I went back to the receptionist and said that we would like another room. She shrugged and responded that the room that we got was what we asked for. After telling her that fact didn't make me like the room any better, she spent some time checking her computer and gave me the key to Room 502 - much, much smaller, but at least the window faced the street and provided some light. Although the room was nicely appointed, it was very small for two adults and luggage - and the bathroom could have been cleaner.
We loved our stay at this hotel. The room was beautiful and the view of the Notre Dame was outstanding. We will come back to this hotel on our next trip!
We stayed during the heatwave in August, and welcomed the a/c. Rooms very nicely decorated, not as small as we had imagined, had view of Notre Dame. Staff very courteous, and hotel in really good location.
Nice small hotel
I spent three nights there in late August 2003. The location is great, Metro is just five minutes walk, River Sienne is ten minutes. Rooms are small by most standards, but are tidy and well decorated. A/C in the rooms are much welcome during the heat wave in August.
Nice and Quaint
This was a nice quaint hotel in an excellent location off the left bank. It didn't seem like a best western at all. If you're looking for a reasonably priced hotel from which to explore Paris, we highly recommend this hotel. There are plenty of good restaurants and shops in the area as well.

An Excellent Choice
A cozy, charming, well-run hotel in a fabulous location at a reasonable price -- excellent value. We recently stayed there for several nights.
Rooms are small in the traditional European way, but with character (old wooden beams in the ceilings, old stone walls with tapestries in the reception and breakfast areas). The bathroom was very clean and contemporary; air-conditioning was great -- and very welcome. We'd definitely go back again. Don't let the affiliation with Best Western put you off; it's like no Best Western you've ever seen in the U.S. We got the name from Karen Brown's guide, which describes it accurately.
