A marvellous stay in this welcoming hotel.
Very well located: next to "Théâtre de l'Odéon". You can take your delicious "bio" breakfast in a cute garden. Our bedroom was really nice and we even had a tasty gift as it was our marriage birthday.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Jardin de L Odeon Hotel

Not all that was promised

from A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed here at the end of October 2004. I originally asked for a superior double room but received what seemed to be just a double room with twin beds, #554. I questioned the desk because the advertising said the rooms had balconys and the picture showed the room much bigger, but was informed that only 2 rooms had balconys for 300 Euros a night The room was very clean but very small and the bathroom extremely small. We were told there was breakfast in the morning but didn't catch on until we were asked for our room number that we would be billed for the breakfast at 12 Euors. In Europe we have found that the breakfast is usually included in the price unless you tell them you do not want the breakfast. The desk person never suggested it was extra. The breakfast was not worth that much. We had breakfast at one of the many cafe's on St. Germain. This hotel is located a few blocks from St. Germain, the Metro, and the Luxembourg Gardens. Not a bad location. You may as well pay only for a double room since that is what you will get. The superior room is no different.

Good Value, Great Location

from odette38
We just got back from a 6 night stay at the Jardin de L'Odeon and were very pleased with our experience. I had booked the hotel through the internet (there was a special rate off their website, so I ended up paying about US$125 a night). The first night we stayed there we were in room 37, which was fine except that it did not have air conditioning. We were switched to a room with air conditioning, room 56, for the remainder of our stay and it was very nice.

The rooms were reasonably sized by Paris standards (we stayed at a different hotel for a bit and the rooms there were considerably smaller--hotel California Saint Germaine) and tastefully decorated. The rooms have working safes and mini bar/fridges. The bathrooms were modern and clean. All of the staff at the hotel were very nice and helpful.

We also tried the restaurant across the street, La Cambuse, based on other tripadvisor reviews and would recommend going there. The food was great at very reasonable prices.

The hotel is in an ideal location, being just a few streets up from the Odeon metro and very near the bustle of St. Germaine and the Latin Quarter, but located on a nice quiet street (our room faced the street but noise was not an issue). We did not have breakfast at the hotel because of the close proximity of so many cafes. There is also a bakery right around the corner called Pain du Prince and getting a baguette or some croissants or pain au chocolats from there in the morning is much cheaper and tastier.

We had a great experience and would definitely consider staying here again!

I booked through the hotels internet site and email in early May for a September 2004 stay. In this email correspondance I was told that I would get a room with air conditioning, but upon my arrival not only was there no air conditioning but also no more rooms available for upgrade. While I overlooked this mistake, as they tend to happen when dealing with international lodging, I did ask for a price reduction which they would not accomidate, even though they admitted to the mistake. If you choose this hotel make sure you have copies of your correspondence, with full expectations of your accomidations, upon your arrival. The location is very good, but there are three other 3 star hotels on the street. I would suggest staying with one of them.

Lovely Quiet Hotel in Great Location

from dmurp
Myself and my wife stayed here for 3 nights at the end of July 2004. The hotel was extremely good value and in a fantastic location being only a short walking distance from the Latin Quarter, Notre-Dame and St. Germain de Pres.

We paid 80 Euros per night for a double room which we booked on the internet about a week before we travelled. We were also in contact by email with Azir before we travelled and found him and his colleagues very helpful during our stay. The room itself was small - the standard for Paris - but was very clean, comfortable and modern.

There are lovely restaurants nearby and we would echo the comments made by another contributor that you should check out the restaurant across the street from the hotel, La Cambuse. The proprietor's name is Gerrard and the food was very good and was the most reasonably priced meal that we had during our visit. Gerrard is a great fan of rugby union and visits Ireland to watch France play Ireland. He also recommended a nice bar to us called La Pinte which is at the end of the road before you approach the Odeon metro station.

We would also recommend eating in a restaurant called La Mediterranee which is situated just around the corner from the hotel on the Place de L'Odeon. The food was great although more pricey than La Cambuse.

The hotel was great value in a wonderful location and we would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel and intend to stay there again ourselves.

Quiet hotel/friendly service

from A TripAdvisor Member
We felt fortunate to find this small hotel on our first trip to Paris. The rooms were small and the beds narrow but very comfortable. Bathrooms are also small but modern and clean. We asked for a room with a terrace and were accomodated at no extra charge for a large private terrace. The staff was really wonderful, especially Asur, who we contacted by email in advance. Everyone was very polite, cordial and bilingual. The only drawback was that our room was not air conditioned and it turned very warm. There were no fans available and unlike Chicago, Paris is not the Windy City! This is a wonderful part of the city, with small winding streets and lots of small shops and resturants. We were really just a block or two from busier streets but didn't sense that on our block. Don't miss LeCabuse resturant across the street. It looks like a hole in the wall but has great food at fairly reasonable prices for Paris. And don't miss the desserts! Someday we hope to return and would certainly consider staying here. Final tip: Always be very polite in Paris. Begin with "Pardon, Bon Jour." and in return you will be treated with respect.That's just about all the French we needed to enjoy the world's most beautiful city.

Location, Location, Location...and a nice room!

from A TripAdvisor Member
We just came back from 6 days in Paris and I think this is a very good value. It is very well-situated, just blocks from Boulevard St. Germain, the Odeon Metro and the beautiful Jardins de Luxembourg. We had two rooms, #52 and #54 (Eur 170/night each), which were very nice and not small by Paris standards. The room decor was really attractive. The rooms were quiet and very clean. The hallways are a bit dull - that would be my only complaint. I agree that one is better off strolling to a nearby cafe for some breakfast just because it is a little pricey there (although the garden is cute), but if you need that early morning coffee before hitting the streets, they will let you buy just the coffee alone and you don't have to pay the full breakfast charge of 12 Euros. Our kids loved being so close to the park. I would definitely recommend this hotel and would consider staying there again.

Tiny and expensive

from A TripAdvisor Member
The room cost 153 euros and was tiny with a tiny bed, 140 cm. The toilet didn't flush properly and they forgot to give us towels and when we told them we needed them we didn't get them in time to freshen up before dinner. I don't know where they got their stars, maybe because of a hairdryer and a fridge. Breakfast cost 12 euros so we skipped that. There are plenty of hotels in Paris with as great a location as this one and far more priceworthy. One thing was good and that was that it was very silent and calm. The surroundings of this hotel is also not so crowded with tourists as in the center of quartier latin.

Great location, mediocre room

from A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed here our last night in Paris after 10 days of another hotel in Paris and Loire Valley. I would have been very disappointed if we were staying more than one night. However, the staff was EXTREMELY helpful to us, and went out of their way to make sure we were taken care of. The location is convenient to a lot of attractions and restaurants. The rooms were bare and dingy, but it was tolerable for one night at the reduced rate we found.

Very Disappointed

from Kathika
We booked 3 months in advance, had a confirmed reservation for a superior room, and confirmed to hold for late arrival, as we arrived Paris in the evening. When we arrived, May 14, 2004, although the gentleman was very nice, they had no room for us! On the plus side, they did find us a room at a more expensive hotel nearby (Hotel le Senat a block or so away). We would have come back when a room became available, but he told us they had no superior room as we had requested, just a standard (which is smaller). Hotel le Senat (listed on Tripadvisor as Hotel Senateur) is beautifully renovated, took very good care of us, and since we had a beautiful room there, we stayed there the rest of our stay.

Good bet for the price range.

from reading222
The excellent location close to many of the attractions but on a quiet street overlooking the Odeon is the hotel's strongest asset. Our room was clean and recently decorated. Staff were disappointingly keen to speak English (down to the kitchen hand.)

The breakfast was poor for the price (€12), better to go to one of the local cafes - try heading south to towards the Jardins de Lux rather than to the congested area around the Odeon metro.

Top Local Tips for Paris

The Latin area is overrated! We went arround the restaurant in the latin area. My impression is that you pay the full price for half the quality. Search for the small resteurants where the locals meet if you want a real Parisian experience and go for the local food. You want be dissapointed.

Sightseeing in Paris Purchase museum cards and metro tickets (batch of 10)

Stamps Although lots of places sell postcards, very few sell stamps. You'll need to find a post office; these usually have a multi-lingual info-provided machine for dispensing stamps, so you can avoid the queues.
