Mº St-Sulpice

An old-fashioned budget hotel with friendly staff near St-Germain-des-Prés. The relatively spacious rooms, furnished with elegant wooden armoires and furnishings, have been redone in 2006 with bright and cheery provençal fabrics, air conditioning, and sound-proofed windows. They still have empty mini-fridges that you can stock with your own drinks and snacks (rare in Paris). Services may be basic, but the location in the heart of St-Germain about 30 steps from place St-Sulpice is fabulous, and they have WiFi and an adorable little garden courtyard off the breakfast room.

29 rooms, refrigerator, WiFi, A/C. Doubles from €147
