Great little hotel, brilliant location hidden away in the latin quarter. Very friendly and helpful staff that catered to all my questions / needs. Very comfortable room, great neighbourhood, places to eat, drink, etc away from all the tourist traps. This is living like a local. This is the only place I would stay in Paris. I would highly recommend it to anyone, just make sure it's not booked out for when I return.

Historical Traveler Reviews The Five Hotel Paris
Bonsoir Mes Amis
We stayed at The Five Hotel for two days over the Christmas season. We were welcomed by friendly staff and a beautiful atmosphere. The hotel is small but its part of the charm. The decor was unlike anything we had ever seen before and the attention to detail was perfect. Great price, great location. Amazing hotel. Will definately be back.
Very special experience
We knew this hotel had just opened and through a friend who lives in Paris very nearby the hotel we decided to book for 2 nights (also because of the district).
We were absolutely amazed by the interior design of the room.
All colors matched and the special light effects were very surprising in short we forgot the outside world. Also the scents you could choose from added to a fantasy world. The lady receptionist was very very friendly and helpful and spoke english well. Their was lots of fresh fruits for breakfast and fresh baked bread. The breakfast room was of a small size but also there the special effects of the interior design made you forget the size of the area. All in all the price of the room in relation to the special surprises and the comfort (bed was excellent) and -not to forget- the spic and span bathroom and room is very reasonable. I will certainly recommend this place to my friends and business relations!
J'ai séjourné par déjà deux fois dans cet hôtel au cours de séjours professionnels sur Paris.
Idéalement placé à proximité de lieux typiques tels que Mouffetard ou les gobelins, l'hôtel est facile à trouver et se situe dans une rue très calme.
La décoration des chambres que j'ai loué est tout simplement très belle, moderne et confortable.
J'ai adoré les lumières tamisées ainsi que la lampe diffuseur d'odeurs.
Le personnel est accueillant et particulièrement la personne à charge du petit déjeuner puisqu'elle vous accueille avec un large sourire tout en respectant mon réveil difficile; le choix du buffet du petit-déjeuner est suffisant pour satisfaire mes besoins en variétés de pains frais.
I've just spent 4 days in the hotel. The rooms are small but it seems like its a new hotel. Great friendly people working there. This is a cool boutique hotel (WIFI is for free). Jon

Without a doubt the best hotel I have ever stayed at. The room was decorated to the highest standard - with a LOWE TV! Needed internet access to check our flights home - they lent us a very flash laptop F.O.C. Loved the LED room numbers.
One factor I don't think people who have slated this hotel have taken into consideration is the price. It cost 2 of us around 300euros for 3 nights with breakfast. All other hotels of the same price were really tacky and lacked any character.
A bit on the small side maybe but didn't bother us - made it more romantic....
So for anyone else who goes for form over function - this is THE hotel.
J ai adoré !
Le Five est un hôtel très agréable, très original que je vais m'empresser de recommander auprès de mes amis pour leurs prochains séjours dans le 5ème.
Un grand merci à toute l'équipe pour sa gentillesse et son efficacité.
Tres trendy !
This is a clean, trendy hotel in a nice area of Paris. Although on the edge of the 5th it is only a couple of minutes walk from the Rue Mouffetard & 5 minutes up the hill to Pantheon. The rooms are on the small side but this is more than made up for by the quality of the furniture, fittings & bathroom - very funky ! Apparently the hotel was only opened in October 2006 & everything looks & feels brand new
My girlfriend & I had a great romantic weekend in November & I would definitely recommend it for anyone going to Paris for a short break.
Merci beaucoup le Five Hotel !
Excelent Value & Service
Stayed at The Five in December 2006. The place is really nice; the room's design is really peculiar yet very enjoyable. We stayed in the room with the suspended bed. The sleeping was excellent, no noise, no annoyance. The room lighting is particularly impressive. The hotel is definitely a small one, but the service is really good: everyone speaks excellent English, is very friendly and willing to help. The location is particularly good for those who love Paris' Saint Germain area, with the main boulevard only 20min walk away. I would definitely recommend the place!
No restaurant- no room service- tiny rooms
The internet site is really missleading...
The only nice thing where the fiber lights, which could be switched on the night.
We had a superior room and even the size of that was really small. The suitcases wouldn't feet in the room and when you opened the room door you faced the bed.
Terrible size wise.
The other thing is that there is no restaurant and no room service.
There is only brekfast which was quite good.
The last day I asked for a wake up call and they did not wake us up and I almost lost my flight.
I would never go back
More style than substance
We stayed 2 nights at this Hotel.
Location is ok. Couple of mins walk from RER\Metro stations. Very much on the edge of the 5th.
Hotel certainly has stylish decor however the rooms are tiny. You could only get in one side of the bed as the other was pushed up against the wall. We had problems with our window shutters (they jammed open) which were sorted by hotel staff. When we returned to our room at 4pm it still hadn't been made up. The staff were friendly but appeared inexperienced. The only restaurant recommendation given was for a Moroccan one round the corner from the hotel - poor when you think of the wide choice of places in the city.
We wouldn't stay here again.

... and better, but we spent a significant amount of time with me trying to keep my head attached to my body - not fun.
All in all I adored Paris and saw many of my favourite sites and got to experience as much as we could with the time we had. The people in general were lovely. The hotel concierge spoke great English and offered to mail my postcards for me (for a few lucky people) when I told her I hadn't seen a mail box in days and ...
... observation deck of the tower so as to view Paris from a different perspective. We browse through the markets at the base of the tower while we waited for the next bus to arrive.
Despite the dreary weather, we decided to brave the elements and sit in the open top section of the bus. Neither hair or umbrella survived. The circuit took us to a number of places, including Rue du Bac, Saint-Germain-des-Pres, and Cluny in the Quartier Latin. We eventually stopped was ...
The sun is shining and I head off for a walk to orientate myself and ended up at the Pyramid of the Louvre and had to pinch myself to believe I was really in Paris another OMG moment! There have been lots but this was the biggest. It doesn't get dark till 9- 9.30pm I didn't realise it was so late so I had dinner near the hotel, it was nice but I thought tomorrow I will find somewhere great to have a fabulous French dinner ....... Bright and early I leave ...

I came to refer to this day (as many other days) as a "Bataan march." At least it felt that way to me. From Notre Dame we hiked back over to the metro (it was "just a hop skip ...
