The Villa des Princes provides 11 modern rooms with boutique style in the middle of intellectual left-bank Paris. (Seriously, walk out the door and you'll bump into bookstores and students in every direction.)
Formerly known as the Hotel des Ecoles, this was a favorite of ours for years, as it offered charming rooms at reasonable rates. The hotel changed management in 2009 and got a stylish sprucing-up. The result is a hotel with trendy décor that, depending on availability, may or may not be “Cheapo-friendly.”
Pros: Quiet, convenient location. Well-equipped, stylish rooms.
Cons: Prices may climb out of “cheapo” territory.
Rooms (which vary in size) sport chic, understated décor and have perks like large flat-screen TVs, fluffy white duvets, air conditioning and Wi-Fi. Rooms on the third floor have wood-beamed ceilings, and bathrooms throughout have swanky glass-walled showers.
The hotel was originally a 17th-century townhouse belonging to the Prince de Condé. The lobby still sports exposed wooden beams, although the rest is modern, with low leather sofas, recessed lighting and modern pieces aplenty.
The rue Monsieur le Prince is relatively quiet. The location is very convenient to the Seine, Saint-Germain des Pres and the Latin Quarter.
Breakfast is available for €10.

About the Villa Des Princes neighborhood
Just west of the Latin Quarter in the 6th arrondissment, St. Germain des Prés is a class act. The neighborhood is flanked by two Parisian gems—the Luxembourg Gardens to the south and the banks of the Seine to the north. It is defined by the Boulevard St-Germain, which slices through the quarter’s winding streets.
