    NEW NAME: French Theory

    NOW CALLED FRENCH THEORY. All Cujas Pantheon signage is gone. No idea why that's not noted online and on here. Excellent price and great location. Easy walk to Notre Dame area, including Big Bus stop near Notre Dame. Easy walk to Luxembourg RER station, which *should be* direct access to the airport (but was NOT in November 2019). TINY room but perfect for a one-person stay with no intention of hanging out in the hotel. Clean hotel, warm shower, comfortable bed. NO extra wiggle room but didn't need it just to lay my head down for a night!

    Noisy in the morning - but respectable for price.

    The noise from the street is extremely loud. This is a 2 star - the rooms are tiny - but that’s what you get for €85/night.

    Great Stay

    The room was very clean and comfortable. The location of the hotel is amazing for the price and the luggage storage was very easy and helpful. I would definitely stay here again.

  • 8.0.Very Good

    'Compact' rooms, including bathrooms, but recently re-furbished, modern, well designed, very clean, and comfortable. Good cafés close by, and an excellent M&S mini-supermarket a couple of minutes away. Location couldn't be better for walking and public transport. I've stayed twice recently and young desk staff on both occasions were really friendly and helpful. Area has a 'student' vibe (Sorbonne and lycée next door), with a great little bookstore directly opposite. Having the Jardin du Luxembourg on the corner is great for impromptu strolls. Deserves more than 2-star. Recommended.

    Great location, basic small room, clean. No view.

    The location is great and very close to the Paris attractions, good access to the metro and direct line from the airport. Clean and good value for the $. Very basic and small room. No coffee maker or refrigerator.

  • 2.0.Poor

    It was a terrible experience. The rooms are very small and not very clean. We had a room on the 6th floor with an elevator which was not working well. There were a very high bathtub not convenient to get in for older people. There were n hot water for two days, and we were not informed. There is no amenities in the room, no water boiler, not even a glass. We will not go back to that hotel which by the way changed name, it is now called French Théorie Quartier Latin.

  • 8.0.Very Good

    Very small rooms, shower was cumbersome given the bathroom design, almost hazardous to get in and out of. Good location, very close to the Pantheon, restaurants and Luxembourg Palace.
