Hotel Dauphine Saint Germain
Travel Blogs from Paris
Cruising the Seine and strolling the cobblestone streets of the Left Bank are perfectly good pastimes in Paris. Yet, this visit to Paris brought new adventures that we will cherish as much or maybe more than those we made in the past.
Just a short train ride through the countryside of France took us to the charming home of the famous …
We arrived in Paris mid morning on our flight from Hong Kong. We eventually managed to find the bus which replaced our train (due to track work). The bus ride, train trip to Luxembourg station was uneventful and we managed to locate our hotel without too many wrong turns. The biggest obstacle is to remember to look the OTHER way than normal when crossing the road. It's surprising how difficult it is to remember this. The hotel ...
Had a pretty cruise day today. The boys wanted to have a look at the touristy things. Eiffel Tower, Louvre, Notre Dam etc etc so we hired bikes again and rode around. Man was it hot and was there some people around. I don't think I have ever sweated that much in one day, and there was no way to get out of it, even in the shade. Nik was having a whinge because he was too hot, which was kind of annoying me because whinging isn't going to stop ...
... I don't mind art and find this part of the museum more to my liking and Melissa is of the same thinking.
For my take on Art...... is that it reflects the time and era, a snap shot of life, and the question I ask myself what was the artist thinking or trying to capture, for what it's worth the Art here reflects some of the drama and angst in the people and scenes it depicts.... A kind of desperate take on life for the times.....in saying this there ...
... anything. In mass they all came walking towards us. I snapped some photos in relative peace and we were on to other lesser fountains in the gardens before the throng arrived.
Heading back into Paris we planned to go to Montmartre for some dinner and a view overlooking the city. Passing through the gauntlet of merchants on the street in front of Montmartre we were at the bottom of the steps to go up. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Dauphine Saint Germain Paris
Excellent hotel in Paris
My husband and I went to Paris on September and we stayed at Hotel Dauphine St Germain des Pres, a 3 star hotel in the latin quarter in Paris. The hotel is magnificient, that's really the best hotel we had ever seen. The team is always available, the room was really marvellous. It was really too hard to come back to our normal life, to our small house. When you stay a few days in this hotel, you really don't want to go and visit the monuments, as in this hotel, iyou have the possibility to relax in a peaceful atmosphere.
So, if you're looking for an incredible hotel in Paris, don't hesitate, go to the Hotel Dauphine Saint Germain : it is in the latin quarter in Paris, so close to the monuments such as Louvre, Notre Dame ... and you will be very well welcomed.
So romantic and charming hotel
I have spend a week in the hotel dauphine saint germain, it was splendid! The rooms are beautifull, decoration is wounderfull, (very old exposed beams, traditional fabric wall coverings...) Rooms benefits of a full equipment wifi, air conditionned, Cable TV, mini bar...
The front desk office is very helpfull and nice, (thanks Guy & Houda!)
Its location is unbeatable: Two Minutes walk to The Louvre or Notre Dame Cathedral, St Sulpice Or Museum Orsay and all of the left bank clothes shops and galeries by practically falling out of bed.
Nice enough, but wouldn't stay again
My husband and I stayed at this hotel for our first trip to Paris. We actually didn't even choose this hotel. We had booked with Hotel Fleurie originally, but they cancelled on us last minute and booked us with this hotel. As many of the other reviews said, the location of this hotel was fantastic. Other than that, nothing else was great. The room and the bathroom itself were very small and cramped. The elevator was tiny. We never had breakfast there because they were charging 15 euros. Instead we just went down the street to one of the many patisseries that were around and had a much cheaper and delicious breakfast. The staff was friendly for the most part, some were better than others. Overall this hotel was fine, but not worth a return visit.
Cute tiny rooms
We stayed here two nights and our room was so small I thought I was in a cave (low ceilings). The elevator would only accommodate one person if they had luggage. We did not try the breakfast here but went down the street to a cafe (half the price). The bathroom was adequate, clean, and very nice marble and lighting. We then left to go to a wedding in Provence, but had to come back to the hotel for two more days. (It was fashion week and we could not get other accommodations elsewhere.) We asked for a larger room and were told they were all the same size. The second room was just as small and the bathroom was smaller. The location is great, and the staff very accommodating. Too bad the rooms are so small, decorated very nice but small).
Historic and Lovely
A lovely old hotel in a fantastic location with darling service. The market just around the corner has everything you could want to picnic on, from cheese to bread to pastries to crepes to wine. Notre Dame, the Seine, Les Deux Magots where Hemingway used to hang out, and many other landmarks are just steps away. And, the price is reasonable, too!
My wife and I stayed 2 nites the very end of Sept. '04. Tho at the end of the tourist rush, we got stuck on the top (6th) floor in the back. This was several steps up from the elevator landing in the weird shaped mansard roof area (angled room, sloping ceiling) overlooking an air shaft. There was the sound of water trickling all night down a pipe in the shaft. An attempt had been made to silence it as there was insulation covering the thing. A.C. didn't seem to work the first nite so slept with the window open - hence the water sound. I thought about trying to move but at the end of our bicycling in Provence was too tired to try for just one more nite. Paid 180 EU for this supposed 3 star with no breakfast. Apparently others get deals with breakfast included beceause the desk had to consult a list to find out. 1 coffee+1 juice+1 coissant=14 EU ( $17.50 ) "But monsieur...that is a breakfast !"(coffee=3.40) Friends staying at Hotel de Fleurie, also in the 6th arr.. Looked like a cut above for the same price.
Full priced but pleasant
Right around the corner from Buci market, this is one-half block removed from a very happening area chockablock with hotels, cafes, bars, and young people. Quintessential look, with french windows with flowers overlooking the street. Staff is friendly and helpful. Breakfast is only ok. Room is sparse, but comfortable. Mine was on the street over the entrace, and a bit noisy. Not a bargain, but pleasant in a good/great location adjacent to St. Michel (Metro +RER) and Odeon metro.
This hotel's reservationist appeared to be very nice and helpful. She sent very prompt emails regarding the types of rooms available and the rates. The problem occurred after I sent my credit card information to book the room I chose. I got no confirmation within 24 hours. I emailed asking for a confirmation, no reply. I threatened to cancel the reservation then immediately received a reply from the desk clerk saying that my credit card info. was received, that the res. was in order, but she couldn't find my file and would have to wait 'til the reservationist returned from the weekend. How weird I thought because all the emails were from the reservationist (at least that's what the emails stated in the close) and not only that, the supposed reservationist was emailing me from Monday and this was a Wednesday so how could she have been gone for the weekend?
This was a lovely hotel. I took a group of friend for my birthday in February, and we all liked it. The rooms are incredibly charming with nice furnishings and bathrooms. The staff was very helpful and the breakfast helpful. The location of the hotel is superb -- right in the middle of the St. Germain, but nice and quite. A lovely little gem for a good value in Paris.
Loved this hotel!!
I'm sorry that it has taken me so long to write a review of this hotel.
I loved it!! Very European and small of course. But the front desk person, was a lifesaver. I wish I could remember her name. This was my first time in Europe and I was somewhat concerned being a female traveling alone. Very helpful and knowledgeable about the surrounding area and extremely friendly. I was in Paris alone for the first day and half and she was very protective of me. The hotel is in the center of everything, about a 15 minute walk from the Louvre and Notre Dame. A 1 block walk to the Metro and lots of night life so I didn't feel uncomfortable coming in late at night. I would stay there again in a heartbeat
