Fabulous Time!from Angelavno
The room was small but there was enough room for everything we needed - cupboards, dressing table, bed and so on. There was a large window with a great view, the ensuite was compact but had everything one needed with a good shower. Above all, the room was kept clean with new towels daily and the maids kept the room tidy even when we didn't!
The buffet breakfast catered for both meat eaters and vegetarians adequately. Although there was not a large selection, what there was was fresh and tasty. I'd sum it up as a good Continental brekkie.
My only gripe: For a non-smoking room, the room had obviously been smoked in before as a faint odour remained.
The location is superb! 2 minutes from Notre Dame, one minute from the Metro and the line connects to everywhere in Paris. 2 minutes from the Latin Quarter (we also recommend the Santorini Greek restaurant on Rue de l'Harpe) with loads of restaurants, bars and cafes.
Highly recommended and I wouod definitely go again. We recommend this gem to all of our friends.

Hotel La Tour Notre Damefrom LoveToExplore
i actually enjoyed this placefrom travelfreak53
The neighborhood was very convenient but a little bit noisy at night. I wouldn't want to stay here during the summer if I wanted to sleep with the windows open. Besides that, I would certainly consider this hotel again in the future.
We liked it - in an ironic sort of wayfrom A TripAdvisor Member
We had a room on the street side of the hotel on the third or fourth floor. Once we got over the entirely mental toile de joie decor (entire room, from floor to ceiling, in the same large red print fabric - it was a bit womb-like, to be honest) we found the room comfortable, clean, warm, safe etc. It was quite large enough for two people (whilst being on the small side, which is usual for Paris, it wasn't cramped) - the bed was comfortable, the bathroom clean and functional, if tiny. Telly worked, hairdryer worked, so all was well.
The lobby is fine - nothing tacky about it in our opinion, the staff were helpful and friendly, and despite quite limited English they communicated effectively with us. Breakfast was in a cute cellar restaurant and was fresh and plentiful.
Excellent location, very convenient, small but par-for-the-course-for Paris sized hotel room, perfectly adequate bathroom, nice staff, good breakfast. What more do you want for less than £50pp?
Worst ever!from A TripAdvisor Member
Don't be fooled, go somewhere else!
NIGHTMARE!!from A TripAdvisor Member
Avoid this place!!from ukneilw
When we arrived at the hotel, we were told "sorry we do not have a room for you, students have trashed several rooms in the hotel." We were moved for a day to another hotel round the corner after being given directions, and managed to book in the next morning after they had cleaned up.
The rooms are small (the mini-bar door would not even fully open - the room is about the length of the bed plus 3 feet), advertised as soundproofed, having internet access, and with room service. We were kept awake all night by banging from the room upstairs above us, the room service is "we can bring you a coffee in the morning but there is no food room service." The internet access is actually wireless and supplied by an external company to the entire area, not just the hotel.
If this is not bad enough the bath had no plug, there was a tile missing on the bath, the toilet seat was yellowed and did not look very clean, the air vent in the toilet was broken so it smelled really bad, and the hair dryer had a big hole in the side. Another alarming thing was that someone had drunk a bottle of the mineral water in the mini-bar, and filled it back up with tap water!
When we complained about the bath to the guy on reception in the evening we were told it was not his problem, in his words, "I am here to serve coffee, answer the phone, and check people in. If you have a complaint to speak to a manager in the morning."
Naturally we checked out the next morning, and managed to find another much nicer hotel near the Eiffel Tower. In my opinion, please save your money and book somewhere else!!!
You can do Better!from Scoots12
There are tons of better places in the Latin Quarter (which is a great location by the way)!
Top Local Tips for Paris
Metro Metro and Busy is an economical way to getting around. Just follow the maps..
Couple of money saver tip 1. Museum Pass: buy it at the train station it was SO worth it. You skip few lines and at the end save some bucks www.museumpass.com 2. Train Pass: we got it right at the train station on the airport for a couple of days and we moved around everywhere with it. No need for taxis at all. It's extremely easy to move around paris using the subway or the buses. 3. The location of the hotel was awesome as two blocks away (stone streets) there were so many options for nice reasonable bistros, shops, etc.
Walk a little way - it's Paris, and beautiful For good food, try the area on the other side of the Luxembourg gardens or walk to the Ile St-Louis (not the flashy pavement bars with bridge views, but up the narrow street, especially the Rue de l'Ile St Louis). No bargains, but you'll find good meals.
