Hotel de la Sorbonne received its name due to a close vicinity to the Sorbonne University. The hotel is also situated just a few steps from the Pantheon, Notre-Dame Cathedral and the Luxembourg Garden. All rooms in the hotel are fashionably decorated and include lots of useful amenities. Apple iMac in every room is among them. Apart from spending time in room, you can have a delicious breakfast in the hotel’s breakfast lounge. The hotel is fully non-smoking that is extremely good for family visits. Considering hotel’s location and on-site facilities provided Hotel de la Sorbonne is a great place to stay while touring in Paris, especially if you came here with kids.

      The proximity to the RER (Luxembourg) is ideal for those coming in from Gare de Nord - we reached our hotel within 20mins of arriving in Paris. The room was very modern and funky and the mattress was so comfortable - just what you need after a long day walking! The Mac in the room with access to the internet was handy too. We left our baggage in the hotel until 7pm which is very convenient too. All in all - a great, convenient stay!

      Excellent, helpful and friendly staff. Nice overall ambience. Room and bathroom were small but not cramped. Good location near Luxembourg. Could open the window to hear birds singing.

      The rooms had a combined computer / tv - in itself nice - but the one in my room had some problems and on my last evening gave up alltogether. (There was free WiFi in the rooms however and I had my laptop with me.)

      Nice decor, interesting furniture and furnishings. Staff on front desk helpful. Fab location

      Very nice hotel, small rooms typical for Paris. Some aspects of room a little tired and need refreshing, peeling wallpaper for example

      Beautiful rooms, everything spotless and new.

      The rooms are tiny, but I guess that is what to expect in Paris...

    • Older travelers

      The staff were all very helpful and willing to help make our stay pleasant

      The lift is far to small only just fit two people in at once. You would class this a small boutique hotel.

      Nice design and equipment, quiet room and excellent location.

      The room was just a little small (considering it was a double superior).

      The finsih and design of the rooms and the hotel inside in general

      Size of the rooms and especially the badroom is far to small for this price range given that its quite remote from the key metro lines and sightseeing area's. the rooms are noisy as well and the beds to small.

      The location was excellent for our 4 day sight seeing trip. The restaurants around the corner were very good and local transport was close at hand.

      Room was quite small but the space was very well designed

      Exceptionally friendly and helpful front of house staff. Location is fantastic, close to RER, Metro and Velib stations, as well as just across the road from the wonder that is the Jardin de Luxembourg. Fantastic interior design as well.

    • Older travelers

      Excellent location, nice quiet street, close to RER station, but also near to Place de la Sorbonne with it's very reasonably priced brasseries, plus proximity to Jardin du Luxembourg and Boulevard saint Michel. Very clean, nicely decorated hotel, albeit our room was quite small. Useful iMac computer in room, with wifi access.

      This is a very classy hotel - opera and jazz music gently playing in the lobby, it is bright and spotlessly clean. Breakfast worth the 8 euros (generous portions) and the staff are charming and helpful and friendly. Would certainly stay again.

      Good location just a block and a half from the Pantheon and the Jardin du Luxembourg.

      The ceilings are particularly low, especially in the bathroom. At 5'9" (176cm) I am not particularly tall. In the shower I couldn't lift my arm over my head without my elbow hitting the ceiling.
