We just returned from a very pleasant five night stay at Best Western Jardin de Cluny. We had realistic expectations of a small Parisian hotel room - we are never too picky about rooms since it’s only a place to sleep for us after a day of exploring, and the rooms here are cozy but clean. This hotel is in a great location, just off busy Saint Germain de Pres Blvd so there are hundreds of great cafes and fine dining nearby, but situated on a quieter side street. There is a metro stop just around the corner and an RER stop a few blocks away, but we were able to walk to most major tourist attractions. It’s somehow right in the center of the lively Latin Quarter, but elegant and quiet at the hotel.
Walls are a bit thin but was never a big issue for us. One quirk is that you must leave your room key with the concierge any time you leave, but the desk is staffed 24/7 to let you back in. Given its location, this was a great value for us and we’d definitely return. Some nearby dinner choices we enjoyed were Le Petit Prince, Le Coupe Chou, and Bistrot du Perigord. Don’t miss the little street when you exit the hotel to the right near the Metro, for a bakery (Maison D’Isabelle), cheese shop, charcuterie, etc. There’s also a lovely street market a few times a week there. less
