Return to Paris; this time on the Left Bank

A travel blog entry by vivicarroll on Oct 29, 2012

We went back to the train station in Lyon and returned to Paris. It was a little more difficult going back on the train because we had to handle our own luggage. Tauck had done it for us on the way to Lyon.
Our plan was one night at Hotel Duc De Saint Simon, a charming hotel on the left bank. Instead, we spent 3 nights there - stranded because …

Airbnb should be paying me

... she had left out (pills, lighters, clothes etc.), wipe down the fridge, sweep and mop the floors. I also ran the washing machine most of the day washing the sheets and towels. The worst part was when i lifted up the mattress whilst changing the bedsheets to find a pink dildo sitting there. Grabbing a nearby book I managed to flick the dildo off the bed and onto the floor...the book ...

... 8.50 euro each. We thoroughly enjoyed that. We headed to our departure gate. They changed our gate number about 30 minutes prior to boarding - you have to pay attention. In any case, our flight got away about 20 minutes late and we were headed for France. Thankfully no passport problems. It was a 3hr 15min flight so similar to flying from Australia to NZ. We got an ok meal on board – some vegetarian pasta dish. Our ...

May 30th at the Musee d Orsay, Paris

We woke up to heavy cloud, and we've had such glorious
weather, so far. Paris has glittered in the sun since we’ve been here. Now, I’m
typing to the sound of rain and Dave’s down the Launderette drying our wash!

Today we decided to visit the Musee d Orsay to see some
more art. This time we started off with the Art Nouveau and then went to see
the Impressionists.

Pretty Pickpocket Paris

A travel blog entry by dmatten on Mar 23, 2014

... There were a few works by Van Gogh but I liked his pieces in Amsterdam more. I've also noticed that I generally like works by Monet and Renoir. From the museum I went in search of the Palais Royal. When I got to the location on the map I found a nice park and nothing else so I was a little sad but I was also grateful to be able to head back to the LeSaicherres. I relaxed when I got back and started preparing myself for the day to come.

    Fabulous hotel in a great location on the left bank in Paris. It is walking distance to many great restaurants and shops. We were stranded by Hurricane Sandy and were taken care of by the wonderful staff.

    The staff was exceptionally helpful as we were stranded in Paris longer than expected. The rooms were clean and breakfast was delicious.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Duc de Saint Simon Paris

    A jewel

    from

    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.

    Nostalgic visit

    from

    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.

    Shabby Chic

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    Excellent

    from

    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

    from

    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.
