This hotel has 27 rooms and a 3 star hotel classification. It is located 1/2 a block off of Boulevard St. Germain which has multiple outdoor cafés which do not require going up steps to enter. In addition, there are numerous shops including Louis Vuitton, Emporio Armani, and Cartier one block away on the other side of the Saint-Germain-des-Prés church. We also found a great, quiet street called Gregoire de Tours 3 blocks (200 meters) away that has numerous outdoor cafés. The whole neighborhood is flat without cobblestones and is what you envision when you think about romantic Paris.
You will not be able to reach this Paris Left Bank handicapped hotel room through the main entrance. There are several steps at the main entrance to reach the reception desk followed by several steps up to the rooms. Consequently, you will need to notify the staff member working at the front desk to open the door at the rear of the building which provides level access to the handicapped room. The room faces a small, quiet pedestrian street.
The breakfast room is downstairs but you can have breakfast in your room. A few other rooms are on the same floor as the handicapped room but the elevator is not deep enough for a wheelchair user to reach the other floors.
I gave this hotel a 4 Star Sage Accessibility rating instead of a 5 star rating because a staff member has to let you in the back entrance and the breakfast room is only reachable via steps. Nevertheless, this hotel would work very well for many disabled travelers, particularly considering the ideal location.
