Convenient location

Posted 26-Jun-2015
Pros: Good staff, clean, quiet and good value.
Location: Good access to public transit, Luxembourg Gardens is about 2 blocks away.
We stayed in this hotel for a week. Although the room was very small, the bed was comfortable and clean. We overlooked the courtyard, and the room was very quiet at night. The bathroom was newly renovated and very clean. The large windows opened and the air conditioning is efficient. The breakfast (10 euros) was actually good value, as it included excellent coffee, rolls, croissants, juice, yogurt, cheese, cold meats and fresh fruit salad, among other things. Staff were very pleasant. There is free wifi in the hotel, and it is an easy walk to two RER stations and Luxembourg Gardens. There are many excellent restaurants in the St. Germain area and reasonably priced shopping on Blvd St. Michel. We took the RER train to and from Charles de Gaulle Airport. It is an easy and economical alternative to taxis.

Bad experience in Paris

Posted 24-Jun-2015
Pros: Located in a good place.
Cons: Staff, confort for the guest
Location: As mall supermarket, restaurantes, a park
It seems that the hotel and tis staff make a favour to the guests in receiving them. The wifi didn't work well. I needed to print a boarding pass., but I had to pay for the use of the computer to have it printed. It was raining and them didn't have umbrellas to lend.

Good location

Posted 22-Jun-2015
Pros: Location; good rooms, helpful staff.
Location: Close by, there is the Musee de Cluny, the Pantheon, the Luxembourg gardens, the St. Germain des Pres church, Notre Dame, the Ste. Chapelle, and more!
Our room was clean and comfortable. Its two sets of windows provided excellent insulation against the noises of the busy St. Michel boulevard. The bathroom was clean and spacious. This hotel is close to the Latin Quarter, to the lovely Lusembourg gardens, and to many interesting sites such as Notre Dame, the Ste. Chapelle, etc. It is also very close to restaurants and a RER station. Breakfast was good and the staff pleasant and helpful. I will certainly consider staying at the Hotel des Mines again!

Great location

Posted 06-Jun-2015
The hotel has a nice lobby and breakfast area. Our room was very spacious and comfortable on the first floor. The only discomforting thing about it was the rumble and vibration of the subway underneath. We got used to it though. The location near the Luxembourg Garden is great. You can walk down to the Seine and bustling cafés and stores quickly. The subway is closeby.

Small rooms, great location, nice people

Posted 04-Jun-2015
Cons: Not sure if they can make the rooms bigger ;)
Location: see above
Overall, the hotel was a great choice. Although the room turned out to be so small that my wife and I couldn't move around the bed at the same time, it didn't matter. The bed was very comfortable, the bathroom spacious, the staff courteous and helpful, and the location was the key. Central to everything, great access to bus, metro, RER, across the street from the Jardins du Luxembourg, easy walk to the Pantheon and the Seine...great choice.

Great location quiet hotel

Posted 24-May-2015
Loved our stay at this comfy Paris hotel. Hubby and I stayed a week here and had restaurants close by on St Michel and St Germain de pres. metro close and parking on the street for rental car. Grocery next door. Daily cleaning, didn't like the breakfast but other than that I loved it ! Location and cleanliness are definitely worth the price. I will stay again !!

Pros: Super bien situé: quelques minutes du RER B qui va directement à Charles de Gaulle pour 10euros.
Bon pour séjour de 1 à 2 nuits. Literie et chambre, salle de bains très propres. Bruyant dans le sens qu'on entend tout ce qui se passe dans les chambres avoisinantes, ronflement, toux, etc.

cannot recommend Hotel Des Mines

Posted 01-May-2015
Pros: absolutely nothing
Cons: Staff - decor - lighting - staff
Location: Not that close to the metro - the area is out of the main activity area - not far to Luxemburg Gardens
The appearance was gloomy and dull. The woman at reception was unfriendly and curt. Would not stay here

It is what it is.

Posted 15-Apr-2015
We stayed for two nights, so the hotel was fine. It was clean enough and the staff was friendly enough. The quarters were tight. The bathroom was extremely small and the bedroom was just big enough for bed. The room and hotel had no ambiance or character. It was bare. But like I said, we needed a cheep place for two nights in this location, and this hotel served that purpose. We were barely at hotel.

Decent overall but value for $ not quite what I was looking for. Great location near metro and Jardin de Luxembourg.
