        • Older travelers

          Nice spacious lobby & breakfast area. The largest room we've found in Paris for the money and new bathroom. Good breakfast for the money. Good location near sites, metro station & many restaurants along the main street.

          Yes, you can hear the metro slightly but not enough to be a concern as they don't run all night. Would be nice to have coffee & tea service & mini frig in the room.

          This hotel has an excellent location. We stayed in 3 star hotels in this area before but Hotel Des Mines is by far the best value for money, while having no less standards. Our windows were facing courtyard, and it was very quiet. Can not fault it

          Rooms are tiny, but this is true for any other hotel in the Latin quarter, so not realy a minus

          Its location was excellant, within walking distance to a great number of sites and good reasonably priced restaurants. The connection from CG airport was also excellant, no changes on the RER line, and only a couple of minutes from Luxembourg station. The staff cleaned the room very well each day, with clean sheets and towels ( nice but in these days of green?? )

          The room was a little on the small size even for Paris, with the bathroom minute. There had also been some type of spillage / stain on the carpet which had not been removed. Breakfast area could do with refurbishing.

          The hotel is a dump, a filthy place. There was dirt-grime in the bathroom. The towels are very very small. The rooms are incredibly small and the shower is even more incredibly tiny. The matressess were old and lumpy. One had to walk like a crab to move in he room. Noice from street ment that it was necessary to have the ventilation on.

          Small, basic hotel but well located close to rer station and to Cite and most of Paris attractions. Small shops open late where you can buy wather, plus small supermarket very close to hotel, and few restaurants plus McDonalds in walking distance. Thanks to staying at the last 6th floor bathroom was relativelly big, bigger then expected.

          Even on the 6th floor you can feel rer train passing by under the hotel. That was bit surprising, but not really a problem. Small but enough French breakfast - but this you can expect in small Paris hotel.

          The location of the hotel was excellant. Only 1 block away from the train from cdg airport. The staff was nice and the bed was comfortable. The bathroom was nice sized with great hot water and great water pressure.

          The room was extemely tiny and could use some updating. Although the bed was pretty comfortable the pillows could use some work and the bed spread and blanket were very old. The hallways were always dark which made coming back to room kinda spooky ...

          Situated within a few minutes walking distance of the Ile de la Cite makes this little hotel a great deal! The Jardin de Luxembourg is nearby as is access to the metro. What fun to walk to the Seine and srtoll across to La Cathedrale de Notre Dame. Hotel staff very friendly. Beds remarkably comfortable. We ate our breakfasts elsewhere as we were always on the go. Lots of fun shopping on the Boul' Mich'. A pharmacy, wine shop, and small grocer nearby. I would definitely stay here again!

          Can't vouch for the breakfasts at 9e since we ate out.

          The location of the hotel was great, 2 blocks from the gardens, sorbonne and 15 minute walk to Notre Dame. Hotel was very clean and the staff was very nice.

          Very tight space, but decently priced for a family of 4.

          The Hotel was in the Latin Quater and a great location for the price across from Luxenbourg. Great for students or back packers, barely one step about above a mid level hostel.

          The rooms were really run down, shower was very small and had spots of black mold on the walls. Two other couples checked out upon arrival over our 4 day stay. Also the day staff was farely helpful but the folks at night were awful even by French standards regarding customer service.
