Located in saint germain area of paris, within walking distance of metro which takes you directly to / from airport, a fab find.... Small room but funky colours & great shower. Close to louve and notre dam. Great for explorig paris on foot, and plenty of bars & restaurants to choose from. Definitely a great choice hotel at a great price as parisian prices go

La chambre était assez grande pour Paris. Nous étions au 6e étage mais il y avait un ascenceur. Nous n'avons pas pris le petit-déjeûner qui coûtait 10 euros. Nous avons plutôt opté pour des patisseries d'une boulangerie des alentours.
Le service à la réception était amical et nous avons été satisfaits de notre séjour de deux jours.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Atmospheres Paris
I stayed for three nights in early January. Great experience. The room was very nice, good bathroom, very clean and well maintained. The staff were frindly and helpful. The buffet breakfast was very good. Of course, the location cannot be beat. Highly recommended.
Great Staff and Location
Stayed here in July 1-4, 2003. All staff members were extremely helpful. Great location in Latin Quarter near many good restaurants, shops, and sights. Area not "touristy". Hotel was clean. Rooms slightly larger than typical European accomodations. Will return when in Paris.
Really enjoyed the hotel
We were here for three day and really enjoyed it. The room was clean and very nice. We had a room with a "balcony" overlooking the street.
We were just a couple blocks from a metro We were easy walking distance to Notre Dame. The neighborhood was very nice. The staff was very polite.
We would stay here again without a doubt.
I just returned from a 8 day stay at the Sully St. Germain and found it charming and delightful. Room was small but very clean and nicely decorated. Staff was friendly and very helpful and even helped me with words in French. Location can't be beat, you are about a 2 minute walk for the Pantheon and Sorbonne and a 10 minute walk from the Louvre, Cathedral of Notre Dame and Saint Chappelle. The only complaint, not all rooms have a room safe and in order to secure important items i.e passport, travel documents etc., you need to make a decision whether you are willing to leave them in the safe at the front desk. I would most definately stay here again.
Loved the Sully St. Germain
We stayed at the Sully St. Germain in 1998 and found it to be a charming, small hotel. Granted the room was small, but it was clean - had a nice view in the front of the hotel with nice big windows. The buffet breakfast was very good - with cheese, ham and croissants. The staff was very helpful if we needed anything. We will probably stay there again if we visit Paris. I would highly recommend it.
Price is high for what it is
We stayed at the Sully St.Germain in August 2001. If you see their rooms on the website, it looks like they all have interesting stone walls and nice decor but I don't know where they were because our room was very ordinary and the bed linen quite old. Rooms are small but so are all rooms in Paris. Although watching my husband try to shower sitting down in an enourmous tub without a hook for the hose or a shower curtain was hilariously, side-achingly funny, the inconvenience of it wore off after a couple of days. The staff are wonderful. Very friendly, charming and helpful. There is a nice little bar and the location is simply the best - quiet street yet only a 5 minute walk to Notre Dame. Lovely little "place" just down the street with Patisserie, Charcouterie & Maison du vins. Very close to Metro Maubert-Mutualite. When we stayed here pre-euro, we payed $80US/night, it's now 150-170 euros! Too much - stay at the Hotel St. Jacques or the Familia - same amenities but much cheaper! On my 3 subsequent trips to Paris, I stayed at other hotels - the Sully St. Germain was just too expensive but I think that for those who can afford it, they'd be very disappointed.
Very pleased with this hotel
I am frankly baffled by the negative reviews listed here. We stayed at this hotel near the end of August 2003 for 3 nights, and were very pleased with it. The photos on the website are a true reflection of the condition of the hotel. Our room was clean and more spacious than our previous hotel in Paris and had air-conditioning--a welcome surprise since we arrived in the city on the heels of a major heat wave. We found the staff to be quite helpful and friendly. The best thing about this hotel is probably the location--it's within walking distance to Notre Dame, St. Germain, the rue Mouffetard district, St. Michel, and even the Musee d'Orsay if you are ready to trek. I highly recommend this hotel! Note: it's quite common in France for bathtubs to have a shower head and no shower curtain, and this is the case at the Hotel Sully.
Don't believe the photos
Saw the pictures on the hotel website and thought it looked good. Very disappointed. The room was nothing like the photos - it was small, even for Paris. The bedlinen was cheap, unattractive and I don't think it was changed during our four days there. The furniture was basic and very dated whilst the bathroom only had a hand-held shower spray with no wall hook and no shower screen! Breakfast is complimentary, but please note that it is limited to coffee, croissants, cheese and ham. When our flight home was cancelled and we had to spend another day in Paris we moved to the Villa Pantheon, which is in the same street. It was not only much, much nicer but was actually a little bit cheaper. The Hotel Sully is in a great location but from my experience has nothing else to commend it - you can do better.
We loved the Sully St. Germain
My teenage daughter and I stayed at this hotel and loved it. We found the staff very helpful and courteous to two travelers that spoke almost no French. Our room was fresh and charming, with blue satin fabric upholstering the walls. Our french style windows opened onto the street. While the room was small, we were comfortable. The location can't be beat, just a short walk to Notre-Dame and the Seine.
Dumpy Joint in good location
We saw a pretty three star review at Expedia for the Sully St. Germain in the Latin Quarter. The room had a lovely stone wall and the hotel was dexcribed as having a helpful staff and lots of medieval charm. There were some tapestries in the halls, granted, but our room had blackened dirty and stained wallpaper and the chairs were broken ( the leg snapped off of one) and the the upulstery had cigarette holes, and worn threadbare and ripped. When we called the concierge to explain that a leg snapped off one of the chairs ( the other chair rocked back and forth because a piece of wood was missing from the base!) - the "helpfull" staff said "the guests are very hard on the furniture". Returning to the hotel one night about 11 PM, there was no one at the desk and I had to call our repeatedly, after the concierge gave me my key he disappeared again so the guests who arrived shortly afterward were also left calling for help in the lobby. The buffet breakfast was ham and low grade cheese, stale coissant,cereal, muddy coffee - got the picture? The location is fabulous though and I highly recommend this section fo the city for a tourist - but find something better than the Sully and the otehr Sequana hotel sisters along the streee, the Moderne, and California.

This was the day before we had to leave. We went for a coffee and a croissant at the Cafe St.Regis, a typical French cafe and restaurant. We also went for a last shopping at Galeries Lafayette. We also walked up to the roof of the Galeries Lafayette. Up there, you have a wonderful view of Paris. (Not the same as from the Eiffel Tower, but still a …
In the morning, we went to the "Parc Zoologique de Paris". We saw a lots of exotic and endangered animals. After the visit at the zoo, we went shopping. We loved "Le Bon Marche", because there are beautiful pieces of furniture, books and the most exotic and unknown food. But you just have to know that this shop isn't "bon marche" at all! (Bon …
On the first day, we walked around and went sightseeing. First, we went to the Notre Dame Cathedral. I still find it hard to believe how hard it must have been to build such a building without today's technology. After that, we went to Le Marais. We went for shopping and headed towards the restaurant L'as du Fallafel. It was so delicious. We had …

We boarded our bus at midday and Tony drove us out to the Ypres salient, the bulge in the front line that the allies drove into the enemy in 1917 towards Paschendale. The fighting lasted some four years and went backwards and forwards many times. The casualties were once again in the hundreds of thousands and represented by the great number of cemeteries and memorials scattered across the countryside…some 3000 of them ...
