    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Europe Saint Severin Paris

    Great hotel


    Excellent hotel for our stay in Paris. We were six ladies on a "klubb" trip to Paris. We had two nice rooms. The staff was very friendly and they all spoke english, one of them were even Swedish. Breakfast was better then we had expected, not only jam, but ham and cheese also. And with lots of restaurants around, what moore can you expect.

    Would definately stay here again!


    I stayed here in mid-May 2004 and it's my favorite of anyplace I've stayed in Paris so far. The only twin room available was a 'standard' twin so, when I reserved it, I asked for an upgrade to a 'superior' twin if it became available. I also asked for a room at the back based on other reviews. On arrival we were offered a triple room at the 'superior' twin rate. Spotlessly clean bathroom! We didn't spend much time in the room to miss the lack of view compared to the rooms in the front. Excellent location! Everyone we talked to at the front desk spoke very good English. Breakfast looked poor but with all the cafes 'around the corner' we were happy. We did have one dinner at the hotel restaurant and it was quite good. For this price range this hotel is an excellent value. I can't wait to go back.

    Very good. I recommend it.


    We stayed at the hotel in August 2004 for 7 nights. The hotel is in a great area. 5 min walk to Notra Dame, 10 min to the Louvre. One block from the river. We also walked to the Eiffel Tower and Arch De Triumph, but that is 30 to 60 minutes. It is right on several train stops, including directly on the RER line direct from CDG airport. Very convenient. The hotel is on a small side street on St. Michel and is very nice, but touristy. There are a ton of open air restaurants right outside the door. This is the cheapest eating in Paris and there are lots of choices. Many three course meals from 9 to 22 euros a person. Quality and choices varied, but if you look around at what people are eating and try different things, you will be happy. The hotel is noisy at night if you keep the windows open because the street becomes very crowded on summer nights. The street is basically a pedestrian street except for deliveries in the morning. All the little streets in this small section are pedestrian and have open air restaurants and souvineer shops. The hotel was very clean and they did a great job daily cleaning the room. Style was nice and not too fancy or plain. We booked a "superior" room and got a street view. The balcony is really just a tall window. Some rooms do actually have regular balconies but I don't think it is necessary. If you get the first floor, it is really the second floor. The first floor is the lobby and restaurant. Our only issue with the room was that the air conditioning in our room was not blowing cold air. We didn't complain because the weather was cool. We got a good last minute price of 80 euros a night on the room through ratestogo. We paid when we checked out and the hotel initially tried to charge us more, but when we showed them the printouts from ratestogo, they were very good about it and charged us the correct amount. The hotel staff spoke english quite well. We never ate at the hotel restaurant, which is actually an italian restaurant so we can't comment on that. One tip, there is a grocery store a few streets over on Rue Domat and we got some fruit and stuff for breakfasts and kept some stuff in the fridge in the room. There are also some laundrymats in the area off of St. Germain. I would recommend that hotel to anyone and would stay here again.

    Wonderful Staff and Location


    Stayed here in May 2004. Chose this hotel for its location. Very close to St. Michel Metro and RER stop. Walking distance to Notre Dame, Louvre, Pantheon and Musee de Cluny. In the heart of the lively Latin Quarter with many excellent restaurants.

    I had reserved over the internet directly with the hotel, a corner room with a balcony. Upon arrival I learned someone decided to stay a month so my room was not available. The front desk clerk wanted to make sure we were happy so gave us the keys to 4 rooms to pick from. We stayed in the corner room on the 5th floor. Room was clean and good size for European standards. We had 2 balconies where we enjoyed wine and the nightlife below each evening. The bathroom was small, but modern and the shower was large. The hotel staff was very accommodating and helpful.

    We had pizza from the Italian restaurant below and it was very good and reasonably priced.

    Very clean, friendly staff and excellent location! I would definitely stay here again!!!!!

    Great Experience!


    We spent 3 nights at this hotel, from May 27 - June 3, 2004. The staff was efficient with the reservation which we did by email. When we arrived, it was very smooth. Our triple room was ready. It was on the back of the hotel, so it was quiet. It was a nice size room, by Paris standards. Big marble bathroom. Air conditioning was great, since it was warm during our visit.

    There is a restaurant attached, where we ate the first night. It was fine, nothing fancy. Good prices. Had breakfast there one morning and it too was fine (10 Euros each).

    We had absolutely no complaints. Everything was perfectly fine and comfortable.

    The location is great. Very near the St. Michel Metro and RER lines - just around the corner. Walking distance to Notre Dame, St. Chapelle and even the Louvre. Lots and lots of restaurants in the area.

    We had fondue at the restaurant across the street and really enjoyed that experience.

    Front desk staff were very professional and friendly for Paris standards.

    I would highly recommend this hotel and would definitely stay there again!

    Hotel Europe Saint Severin


    Great location on the left bank. Quiet street, lots of restaurants nearby. Notre Dame, 5 minutes walk. Hotel somewhat rundown - corridors dark and dingy, stairs worn, stair railings loose, furniture chipped. Rooms can be very small. Our bathroom shower was so small that you hit the taps when you showered. Would not put the heat back on even though Paris was very cold and wet, so we had to use a hair dryer to put some heat in our room. Only the evening night clerk was friendly, the rest of the staff were not - simple requests we ignored or handled with grudgingly. Strange for a busines that needs customers.

    Loved it!


    This hotel had the most perfect location imaginable. Such a great neighborhood! The staff is lovely, even with our rusty French. The rooms, though small, were extremely clean and well-kept and the bathroom was very recently updated and modern. (Not always the case in Europe.) My favorite memory of Paris was sitting on the tiny balcony overlooking the street, enjoying a bottle of vin de table and soaking in the ambience of the neighborhood.

    This hotel rocks!


    The Hotel Europe Saint Severin is the best hotel for the money in Paris. If you want to be in the center of the action, this is the hotel for you. The rooms are small, as they are in most European hotels. I see it as part of the charm. I'm planning on returning as soon as possible.

    Loved it!


    This hotel was a fabulous place to stay. Our room was a little small but very clean. The location was superb, two minutes from Notre Dame and around the corner from a metro station. We will surely stay here again.

    Absorb the vibes


    Location, location, location! That is what the Hotel Europe St Severin offers its visitors. As a bonus, you can also forget any pre-conceptions about the surly French. The hotel staff are welcoming, warm and smiling.The hotel is not just in the Latin Quarter of Paris. Its restaurant walls open, its tables spill into the street and Paris merges until past midnight.On the downside, the single rooms are small and getting out of the shower needs some forethought, especially for a large individual. However, to open the bedroom's tall French windows and look down on the street theatre is an experience.Set in a pedestrianised area, there are more nearby places to eat, in more nationalities, than you can count in a stroll a stroll that can take you the 50 odd metres to the Seine and the magical sight of Notre Dame. 50 metres the other way is the St Michel RER station which puts you 40 minutes and 8 euros from CDG airport no need to sell your soul to a taxi driver.If you want a quiet dinner and drink in calm surroundings, then Europe St Severin is not for you. On the other hand, if you want to absorb the bustling life of night time Paris, through close contact, it comes highly recommended

    Bon Jour from Paris!

    Thanks for joining me, Ken, Kim and Aimee on our trip to France. Kim and Aimee are Ken's sisters-in-law and have never been outside of the North America, so this will be a true adventure for them. We are celebrating Kim’s retirement from 30+ years of teaching elementary school, and thought what better way to do so than to head to the City of Lights, Paris.

    As many of you know, I have been to Paris around 20+ times and ...

    ... today was very bright and warm - high 20's to low 30's and we set off at a relaxed pace to walk into (old) town via the pretty Luxembourg gardens. It has a variety of statues, plantings and leads up to the former palace which since the royals were done away with has served a number of functions such as the museum before the Louvre became the main art one, and now the west wing is the home of the President - guarded by serious, heavily armed guards. The park ...

And the city itself is just beautiful at night with lots of warm glowing lights, nothing too bright, beautifully constructed and decorated monuments and a skyline like no other I have seen. A city which had taken me so long to visit, but one for which I know I will return, again and again. Little did I realise the extent that Australians had touched the hearts of the people of the outlining villages of Paris, which would determine my ...

    We escaped the gypsies and their petitions at the church with somewhat ease and also the hawkers with iphones and Chanel parfum in a rather unsavoury area that we found ourselves in. There were streets of fabric shops here. We bought Jeff de Bruges chocolate and got a raucous giggle from a customer in the store when I indicated that the shop keeper could keep the change. Maybe this garnered a laugh either because of the gesture or ...

    Added a Pepsi to the bill and happily started the stroll back to the subway. The neighborhood along the canal was starting to liven up. I came across some sort of save the world swap meet. Looked like a **** swap but one man's junk...on the other side of the canal was a small ...
