This is my favourite hotel in Paris. It is located in a traffic-free district near Notre Dame, among old streets full of charm. The reception staff were polite and efficient and the rooms very comfortable. I would gladly go there again for a pleasant stay in Paris.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Parc Saint Severin Hotel

Great place

from tal27
I have stayed a few different places round Paris, and this time I wanted somewhere convenient in the Latin Quarter to stay with my mother. This hotel was perfect. We had room #50 which was huge - the largest room I have seen in Paris. Very comfortable, very clean, reasonably priced with very friendly staff who when we arrived treated us as long lost friends. I recommend the breakfast at the hotel - it was the same price as local places, but you can serve yourself, and the pastries were fresh, the cereal fine etc, unlimited baguettes. The views from the terrace would be wonderful in summer (not worth it in winter). Great location - close to everything, near RER and metro stations and the Seine. Only downside - a very slight smell of wet dog in the hallway (presume it had got wet at some point).

good location

from TittyTaylor
Stayed here for 2 nights in March, 05, great location in the centre of the latin quarter, yet tucked around the corner so no night noise, our room windows were out overlooking the church St.Servern. Rooms were very clean as well as bathrooms, clean towels and sheets daily, normal size not cramped. Small lounge to sit in near reception, but not a bar, therefore, not alot of atmosphere as you would get with a hotel with a bar, but a great base, friendly reception staff, within walking distance of all sights, although a long walk to Eiffel Tower etc, it is a lovely pleasant walk along the banks of the Siene. I also feel it is better to stay Latin quarter or St Germain area for the evenings, as good and better priced restuarants in these areas

A Very Nice Little Hotel

from SatFlyer
My 15yo daughter and I stayed at the Hotel Parc St. Severin during the week of Bastille Day and were quite pleased with the accomodations. The hotel is located on a one way, one lane street (more like a foot path) and is very quiet most times. You are just minutes from Notre Dame and at least 3 metro stops. You're located just off St. Germaine and St. Michel boulevards It proved to be a very nice "base" in which to explore Paris. You'll hear the bells of St. Severin which add a nice ambience to your stay.

We stayed in a room with two twin beds. I knew from reading room descriptions that this room would be small....it was. But it suited our purpose and provided many hours of relaxful sleep. Who wants to stay in their room anyway. There was a fridge stocked with various types of drinks (all for a modest price listed inside.) We didn't partake of anything from the minibar because we had a couple small stores located nearby that we could buy anything we needed. Places to eat are too numerous to list....every type of food you could imagine was accessible within minutes.

They had a computer in the anteroom which you could use once you purchased an access card for a minimal price. The European keyboard proved to be quite a challenge when trying to write home but I managed to get my point across succinctly.

The hotel staff were very friendly and always willing to answer a question or give helpful advise. I booked this hotel throught Expedia and I'd highly recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to stay in the Latin Quarter.

Cant wait to go back

from Glendub
Myself and my husband have just returned from four magical days in Paris staying at hotel Parc Saint- Severin in Latin Quartier. This hotel is in an excellent location full of great restaurants .We didnt have to use the metro once. The rooms were a bit small but that didnt take away from this great hotel. Our room was spotless and cleaned everyday. The staff were very friendly and spoke english.We didnt have breakfast at the hotel but it looked good for 10euro.We would defintely go back and stay at this hotel and recommed to our friends and family.

Book the penthouse if you can!

from A TripAdvisor Member
Perhaps the best thing about this hotel is its rooftop suite with a to-die-for private outdoor lounge area to enjoy breakfast alfresco if the weather permits....and to watch the sun set over the Eiffel Tower in the evening. I booked it last May for my wife's birthday, and it was wonderful.

The cost is surprisingly affordable, though in these days of the weak dollar, still not cheap. Room 701, book it if you can, demand for it is high...you can see the view towards the St. Severin church looking towards Notre Dame in the picture on the right at this website: -----------------

Absolutely Fabulous Boutique Hotel in Latin Quarter!!

from colleengarot
Me, my husband and our 15 month old son just spent a week at the Hotel Parc St. Severin. We had an incredibly beautiful (huge) room on the 6th floor with a private balcony! The service was impeccable, the staff is professional, courteous and will bend over backwards for you. We spent weeks researching hotels and we decided to stay at this hotel and it absolutely made our trip! This hotel is located right next to the St. Severin Church (an historic Gothic church) and it's a block from Notre Dame. For the price (much cheaper than other comparable 3 Star hotels in the area) you won't go wrong. Ask for a mini-suite on the 6th floor (around $195 a night.) Talk to Beatrice at the front desk she is the best! And when you finally get there, order the in-room French breakfast (10 euro), tres magnifique! We can't wait for our next trip to Paris and we'll definitely stay here next time.

We Loved it!

from A TripAdvisor Member
Having had enough of bad experience with Paris hotels, this time I spent a good few weeks on researching books and surfing the Internet. I chose this hotel for its location, good reviews on this website and very efficient response from the hotel staff to my e-mails.

Last October my mother and myself spent three nights there and we both loved this immaculate hotel adorned with flowers and its quiet location just off a buzzing area. Our room on the 4th floor, like the whole hotel, was spotlessly clean, bright, comfortable, very well equipped and overlooking the church of St Severin. The location was perfect for sightseeing, dining in the evening and travelling to the airport. I find this medieval and intellectual district of Paris much more interesting and stimulating than any other. I will definitely go back to the Hotel Parc St Severin.

Very nice small hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
I spent a lot of time cross-referencing hotels in Paris before I chose this hotel. Price was a major issue but so was safety. I traveled with my daughter to the Tour de France and spent 3 days in Paris prior to linking up with the Tour in the Alps. I cannot emphasize how nice it was to speak to someone in English at the receptionist's desk. We spoke very little French so I knew we needed a hotel with some English speaking employees. Our room was small by American standards but spotless and the bathroom had been updated. It also met my other requirement of air-conditioning (this was July). It is on a quiet street on the Left Bank just around the corner from dozens of cafes. The metro is about 2 blocks away. Would stay there again, no question. Price: about $150 US.

Functional

from A TripAdvisor Member
Family stayed here for 3 nights in late May on the first leg of our journey. Two rooms, small, yet clean and comfortable. The "twin" room for my kids was very small (#53), with little more than the 2 beds, small desk and television. Ours (#52) was larger and very comfortable. Bathrooms were clean with large tubs. Location was excellent. Yes, the area is a bit tacky, but so if much of Paris (sorry if that offends anyone). The abundance of restaurants is very nice and keeps the price of food to the lowest we found in France or Italy. 3 course meals with lots of choices from 10 to 16 euros for lunch and from 14 to 20 for dinner. Our kids (teenagers) loved the area and the activity (particulary the large internet cafe nearby).

Perfect Parisian Home Base

from Kenny_in_California
While I'd love to be able to stay at Le Grand Hotel, it's just not practical. Therefore, when traveling to Europe I look for reasonably priced, smallish, centrally located hotels. The Hotel Parc St. Severin met, and even exceeded all my requirements.

My significant "euphemism" and I stayed at the St. Severin from May 7-18, 2004 and loved it. Yes, some of the short streets in that tiny part of the Latin Quarter are overtly touristy, but it's a fun, energetic area. And it's about as centrally located as you'd ever want to be; you can easily go anywhere in the city from there.

The hotel is quiet (away from the touristy streets), clean, moderately stylish and the staff are professional and friendly. The housekeepers were adorable - one was sincerely concerned that I might be sick when I slept in one morning. When we arrived, a fresh fruit basket with a handwritten welcome note was waiting for us. As is always the case, the room was small by US standards, but we never felt cramped...and who can stay the room while awake knowing that Paris is out there? Our fifth floor double room, for which we paid 129 euros per night, had big double-paned windows with a view of beautiful St. Severin church. The bathroom was large and recently remodeled with new tile and fixtures (huge bathtub), and we rarely heard any neighbors through the walls or floors. I'd definitely stay there again.

Top Local Tips for Paris

Buses Most people take the Metro, but if you are handicapped or have a problem with stairs, the bus is a practical and better option and you get to see the city. Buy a guidebook called "Le Bus - Repertoire des 99 lignes"; the publisher seems to be "L'Indespensible". ISBN 2 7072 0454 4. It costs 5.30 euros and gives the details for each bus line. You don't need to be fluent in French to use it.

Left Bank , convenient to sightseeing Walk to most restaurants and sights, so as not to miss anything in the area.

No more left luggage at Gare du Nord. Number 38 bus. Despite what some guidebooks say, there are no longer lockers for left luggage at Gare du Nord, so don't turn up thinking you can check your bags and go sightseeing. Also, the number 38 bus goes due south from the Station, though the centre of town and down Boulevard Saint Michel. Much nicer than the metro/RER if you're going in that direction.
