Boasting a posh location literally across the street from the Luxembourg Gardens, the old-fashioned Résidence du Palais offers old fashioned rooms with shared facilities at reasonable rates.
Pros: Directly across the street from the Luxembourg gardens. Clean.
Cons: Sparse furnishings. Only shared toilets available.
The Résidence du Palais' rooms are well-kept, with freshly painted yellow or pink walls and restored crown moldings. They either look onto the rue Vavin or overlook the courtyard (which would be quieter). Furnishings are sparse: All rooms are equipped with a flat-screen TV and not much else. Walk downstairs, through the courtyard and cross the street directly into the garden. It’s truly formidable! Aside from the garden, you’re also close to the Boulevard Montparnasse, cafés, shopping and several Metro stops.
As for facilities, every room has a sink and shower placed into a corner, mostly without a closing door (which could be awkward or no problem at all, depending on your situation). Rooms on each floor share two toilets, which are cleaned throughout the day.
The Résidence du Palais is run by the friendly Monsieur and Madame Vabre (who speak English). They’re assisted by the adorable Oscar (the Jack Russell), and Garfield and Felix (les chats). The animals stay put, however, in the second-floor reception.
The entire pension is non-smoking. The pension does have an elevator. Wi-Fi is available throughout, but guests may be charged (depending on the length of stay). Breakfast is available for €5, and, for long-term guests, dinner is available.

About the Résidence du Palais neighborhood
Just west of the Latin Quarter in the direction of the Eiffel Tower, St. Germain des Prés is flanked by two Parisian gems—the Luxembourg Gardens to the south and the banks of the Seine to the north. The iconic neighborhood borrows its name from the church of St. Germain des Prés. It is defined by the boulevard of the same name, which slices through the quarter’s winding streets.
