Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

From the moment I checked in to the moment I departed 10 days later, I felt welcomed, safe, cozy and delighted by this gem of a boutique hotel. The staff were so kind, the room so quaint and comfortable. The location was a perfect launch pad for exploring all things Paris. Strongly recommend this place!

I have stayed at the Port-Royal 4 times and I love it. Price/value ratio is outstanding. I get a single with sink in room, toilet/shower down the hall for 48 euro plus 2.50 for shower. I find my room to be spotlessly clean, comfortable and simple everytime. I appreciate not having a t.v (or having to listen to a neighbors t.v thru the walls). As a female traveling alone, I feel very safe in this neighborhood. What I require of a hotel is to be extemely clean and kept up. Port-Royal delivers just that.

Rooms on the street side can be noisy with the big, wonderful windows open, so bring earplugs.

I have not bought the Hotels breakfast, so I can't comment there. I use the bakery, grocery store and McDonalds directly across the street.

I take the RER from CDG to the Luxemberg stop. Get off and turn left. Walk down the street 12 minutes and you reach the Port-Royal on your left.

I visit Paris 2 times a year and have had the oppurtunity to stay in other hotels when the Port-Royal is full. I always return to the Port-Royal.

I had a VRBO booked for months, but when I showed up, the owner was inside and had no intention of leaving. I had been up for 38 hours and I was starving so I just booked the first hotel I saw, which was this piece of garbage. The showers are communal, only on the 2nd and 6th floors, and it costs 2,50 for 5 minutes. There's NO TOILETS! There's one off the lobby, but not on the guest floors, as far as I can tell. It's a truly terrible place and they won't let me leave. I hate it.

Customer experience is very bed and essential details about your accommodation are not given until when you can no longer cancel your stay with full refund.

I don't recommend this hotel to anyone. To give a 'shared bathroom' option during COVID-19 seems like an absurdity to me.

I'd rather pay more for a better service and overall experience.

After a train delay required me to stay overnight in Paris, SNCF (the train company) customer service staff confirmed with the hotel by telephone and gave me a payment voucher for staying at the hotel, and instructions on how to get there.

I arrived rather late, and when I produced the voucher, the clerk said that his was to be presented at checkout.

Since this was an unexpected stay, I didn't have any toiletries, shampoo, soap, etc. and none were provided by the hotel.

I went to check out, and a sullen and rude woman looked at me, and the voucher, and then categorially refused to take the voucher. When I tried to question her about what to do, she became insistent that I pay for the room in cash.

I decided it was best to go back to the train station and get the people at SNCF to make some calls and handle the situation before checking out. It was still rather early in the morning.

As I turned to go, the woman came out and took ahold of my purse, tore up the voucher, and physically attacked me, pulling on me, actually tearing my coat. She would not let me go, and I screamed. When guests came to see what caused the commotion, she immediately let me go and hustled to the front door of the hotel and locked it, confining me in the hotel.

She said I had to pay in cash before leaving, and that if I didn't do so, she would call the police. I encouraged her to do so.

The police arrived and I explained the situation. They examined the torn-up voucher, and saw that it was valid. The woman pretended to know nothing about it. The police made her tape it together again. They clearly saw the truth of the matter, apparently this hotel has a habit of calling the police and confrontations with clients.

The woman found another reason not to accept the voucher, due to a misspelling on the voucher. The police oficer asked me if I wanted to pay and work this out with SNCF with a receipt from the hotel or to stay and continue battling the situation. I had to catch my new train out and finally paid. The woman insisted on cash, clearly to avoid my canceling payment.

It was an extremely traumatizing experience. I was treated horribly and actually physically accosted by the woman at the desk of the hotel. She was extremely nasty to me. I have nver had a more traumatizing experience anywhere.

I had booked Port Royal after reading the numerous favorable posts on this site. My BF and I stayed there for 3 nights this September from the 9th.
I had requested a room 3 months back overlooking the courtyard as recommended but when we got there we were told our room faced the street and we couldn't move as they had no rooms available.

The room itself is smaller than we both were mentally prepared for. This is our third time to Europe and the room was considerably smaller than rooms at other hotels we've stayed at. No biggie....bathroom is quite tiny in that if you're sitting on the toilet you need to be careful while getting up otherwise you can hit yourself on the sink. Shower is a stall with a closed glass door(pro).

The biggest problem was the noise. Even though we were heavily jet lagged and I had ear plugs we both woke up at least twice due to the street noise - vehicles plus sirens. There's a hospital close by on the same street.

The metro is an easy walk, and bus stations are around the corner(although we had to change lines to get into the city at times). It's nowhere near the hub of the Latin Quarter, more near the edge of Montparnasse neighborhood.

I wouldn't recommend this hotel for 76.50 excluding breakfast. We found a couple of other charming hotels in the Marais, walking distance to Notre Dame, St. Germain for 66E, slightly bigger room than the port royal WITH breakfast!!!! Metro stop 5 mts coming out of the hotel. So bottom line don't bother, there are better deals out there than the port royal. Truly not worth waking up at night when you're tired after a day of walking around.....

The Port Royal is fantastic! The front desk staff were wonderfully helpful (in both French and English), and it's less than a block from a metro station that runs directly to the Louvre and the major department stores. They have maps that are the whole city on one side (within the peripherique) and separate little bus, metro and RER maps on the opposite. All you have to do is ask, and the desk staff will either know (and show you on the map) how to get somewhere, or they'll look it up for you. Truly great service.

Only 2 downsides that prevented me from saying "Excellent".
1 - Smoking. They are NOT a non-smoking hotel and I ended up down the hall from a chain smoker my last 2 nights, so was quite ill by the time I headed home. I suggested on my "comment sheet" that they consider non-smoking floors... whether they do or not is to be seen.
2 - Noise. It's an old (very cool!) building, and while the walls are noise proofed very well, the doors are not. I never heard the people next to me, but I did hear everything in the halls. Also, many who were also staying there tended to slam the doors as they tended to require a good pull to latch. Not a fault of the hotel, but something to be aware of.

One very specific note - avoid room 8 if at all possible. It shares a wall with the stairs, and is immediately across the hall from the WC. It was fine unless you wind up with incondiderate goofs on your floor (i.e. the aforementioned last two nights).

A great place to stay for those on a tight budget. The staff are extremely nice, friendly & helpful. They even gave us great touring tips! & the rooms are clean and well maintained, even if they're a little small. You can also borrow almost anything you need from hair dryers to European plug adapters from their front desk.

Note that baths are not free. It costs Euro 2.50 for a 5 min. bath! At least you'll get to realize how much time 5 min. actually is.

The hotel itself is in a great location; in a somewhat upscale residential neighbourhood. There is a Metro stop (Les Gobelins) a couple of min. away & an RER stop (Port Royal) about 10 min. away. There's a really cute street 'Rue Moufftard' about 5 min away, which has some good dining options as well as several shops, chocolatiers & what not.

All in all we'd a wonderful time. It fight our tight student budgets but also made sure that we'd a pleasant Paris trip.

I have written many many reviews and I am very well traveled, however, dealing with this hotel is very difficult and expensive process, this is not a review but some advice for the traveler especially if you are coming from the United States that other reviews fail to mention.
1. The management of the hotel seems to have a problem reading your emails, regardless of your request you will get a standard email response.
2. If you are persistent and get management to respond, be aware that the only way to insure a reservation is a bank wire transfer or mailing a money order, the bank wire transfer is a VERY expensive process that a US bank will charge $50-75 per transaction, in addition to your bank wire fees you will also be changed the hotel transaction wire fee costs which are 14 euros these fees are before even paying for the room.
3.The hotel DOES not accept CC nor do they accept paypal.
I just wanted to insure that fellow travelers are aware.
