France Hotel Review - Paris, Left Bank St Germain

France, Paris, St Germain, Hotel Left Bank St Germain (

Location: very near Odeon subway stop, in the middle of all the hubbub, if that is what you like
Room (2 adults, 2 children < 10): we had a nice but small room that barely fit two queen beds and was quiet. We found it was very difficult to find rooms for a family of 4 in Paris, so we were thankful to have someplace take us in.
Service: good, but Parisian if you know what I mean. The quality of service depended greatly on who was sitting at the front desk
Internet: no
Food: breakfast was included, but just ok - don’t expect world class croissants and cheese here
Best feature: location
Best food nearby: there is a lot of really, really bad food in the St Germain area. We didn’t have any good meal in the area.
Price: 250 euros a night (June).
Overall family rating: OK 6 out of 10 - we looked hard to find a good family hotel in Paris near St Germain. We looked hard before booking this, so maybe this is the best you can do in this price range. Still, I think you can do better.
