... not the cute kind), Sean - Charlie Chaplan/ old man in corduroy/ what he usually wears, Natalie - Marilyn Monroe, and then there was Antonio. Antonio didn't dress up. He came in nice pants, a sweater over a button up, and his hair newly showered. Well, Afsy and Gigi were not having that. They whipped out some of Gigi's liquid eyeliner and drew a very neat mustache on his cleanly shaven face. It was not until Hannah arrived that we figured out what his costume would ...
... Originally our plan was to spend a month in Paris followed by a month in Germany, however the simple of cost of living in Paris for a month did not allow us to do that. Instead we settled on a week. Paris is one of the world's premiere tourist destination and it's not hard to see why. For every street corner you turn it's like walking into a postcard or a film set. Sure there are the 'big icons' of this famous city, Eiffel Tower to your left and Arc ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Duc de Saint Simon Paris
We stayed at the Duc May 2003 for the first time upon high recommendation of a friend. It was a delightful hotel with a very nice staff. Our room was on the ground floor, a bit small but filled with toile fabrics, antiques, beamed ceiling, a small chandelier and flowers in our windowbox - I've reserved a room with a terrace this next visit for another perspective. The bathroom, while small, is updated and modern. The decor of the hotel is very "french" and comfortable. Nice location on the Left Bank for quiet and understated, which we like.
Guests who have negative opinions are most likely to share them with others. We, however, wish to share our positive opinions.
Our stay at the Hotel Duc de Saint-Simon this October was an exquisite experience. It was our third visit to this wonderfully situated hotel in Paris. We first stayed here in 1977, and it has maintained its high standards over the years. Our most recent stay was full of nostalgia.
We love this small and beautiful hotel.
My husband and I stayed at the Saint-Simon in a suite recently. The decor was quite charming, although a bit on the shabbier side. The rooms were small -- the bedroom had just enough room for a bed (double?), a dresser and small side table, and the sitting room was cozy. The bathroom was spacious and clean, though. Our one major peeve was the showerhead which would not stay fixed in the same position, making showers a bit of an ordeal. Overall, however, the accommodations were very nice, and the value was good considering how much rooms go for in other fine hotels in Paris. The staff was courteous and helpful at all times. Location was close to shops and restaurants. I would stay here again, although next time we'll probably stay closer to the center of the city, i.e. Notre Dame.
Good location but a bit run down
Our original room was large but it did not have air conditioning so they agreed to move us to another room which was quite small. The bathroom was roomy but the ceiling developed a leak. Their solution to this problem was a bucket!! Not what I expected for the amount of money per night. The "hotel" could also use some new carpeting and a good dusting. It's best feature is its location.
Perfect location, away from the busy tourist areas and yet walking distance from it all. Beautiful, charming and very romantic hotel.
friendly and helpful. just perfect for if you don't like the average tourist hotel or large impersonal place.
Quiet and Comfy
Stayed for Valentine's Day and had a wonderful time. Charming breakfast room, private bath. Garage available in neighboring garage for 30 Euro per day if required (get a small car - a good tip for Paris anyway). Will be staying again in July.
Saint-Simon needs to update
Just back from staying at the St Simon. I found it to be slightly shabby and overpriced. The location was good and it is a quiet hotel. But for the price you can do better in the same area. I think it is somewhat past its prime and due for some updating. The staff were all very nice.
We had made reservations at the hotel De Suede, however the ---- ---- that run that dump kept putting us off, saying we could not have the suite we reserved three months in advance. We left and found the wonderful Duc du San simon. Wonderful place can't waite to return. Save your $ and go .
Quiet, quaint and elegant
Blessed with a wonderful location just steps from the boulevard St. Germain, the Duc de St. Simon has about three dozen rooms, most of which face out onto the courtyard that serves as the hotel entrance. The rooms, though smallish, are neat and tidy. The cellar bistro serves simple and wholesome foods and the bar is stocked with excellent wines.

Fabulous! Great location just off Blvd. St. Germaine, near the Musee d' Orsay. the Louvre, Les Invalides. Concierge can get tickets to anything.
