Citadines Apart’Hotel St. Germain

If you like to be at the center of the action, this is the place for you. It’s located on the left bank of the Seine, in the Latin Quarter. You’ll love wandering through the tight alleys and popping into the innumerable cafe’s and restaurants that line the streets. Technically, their rooms are ”Serviced Residences,” so you won’t have a maid cleaning up after you, but you’ll have access to normal hotel amenities.
