Hotel Agora St Germain

I am headed to Paris for 8 days and am scheduled to stay at the Hotel Agora St Germain in the 5th arondissment. Does anyone have experience staying there? Any advice?

I just passed by the hotel as it is about a couple of blocks away from its sister hotel, Abbatial St. Germain, where I stayed.

I did not go inside the Agora St. Germain but it looks good from the outside. However, I did view the pictures on its website. I find that the Abbatial St. Germain's rooms look nicer. In fact, the room they show on the Abbatial St. Germain website is the room I had-a triple room-on the 5th floor. Had great views of the Pantheon, Notre Dame's spires, and Blvd. St. Germain. It had two windows in the bedroom and one in the bathroom. Ask for a triple room for views and space. Good hotel.

I stayed here last month, after trying a few different ones - and getting passed on to friends/affiliate hotels etc. great location, perfectly adequate, clean, not spacious but just fine, staff was friendly. great price - I paid 100E a night. for that location it is fabulous. short walk to Notre Dame.

when I say adequate I am not trying to damn with faint praise - it is nice, just don't go expecting a shwanky hotel.

We did indeed stay at Hotel St Germain and found Flygirl's comments to be right on target. The common areas are lovely. The rooms--small. I didn't find a room with a bed larger than a double. That was fine for us though a little cramped as my partner is 6ft8. I can't say enough how friendly the staff is, though. They were helpful, friendly, and accommodating. I'd stay there again.
