How to Get There

Select Hotel – Rive Gauche

Paris, 75005 France


Great hotel in a wonderful location

Very nice! Paris is such a large city, you can’t be close to everything. But the Select Rive Gauche Hotel is in the heart of the Latin Quarter and about as convenient as possible. Close to major museums and Notre-Dame. Hundreds of sidewalk cafes and shops within walking distance. Our room was fabulous and the hotel staff was extremely pleasant and helpful. My only issue was with the metal room keys, instead of modern room cards, and the strange arrangement of light switches in the room. However, overall, an excellent place to stay in the City of Lights.

Wonderful hotel and location

What a pleasant experience! Excellent for walking, central to all transportation, attentive, friendly staff who were extremely helpful. On our return trips, only the Select Hotel Rive Gauche will do...voila!


My friend and I spent three nights each in an executive category room. The rooms were compact (which is to be expected in this class of Paris hotel) but very efficiently designed for one guest. The room was very clean, the bed was comfortable and the shower pressure was superb. Our rooms were front facing on the fifth and sixth floor and featured a view of the very attractive pedestrianized Place de la Sorbonne and, in the case of the sixth floor room, continued over the opposing rooftops all the way to Sacre Coeur ! The double glazed windows worked beautifully without a hint of street noise day or night.
The hotel's decor is beginning to show some wear but this really did not detract from our stay. My only complaint is regarding the everpresent scent (vanilla?) in the lobby, which I found intrusive.
We chose to eat breakfast each day at one or another of the nearby cafes , so I can't comment on that service.
An outstanding aspect of the hotel was the no nonsense professionality of the front desk staff, especially Marie Helene. Every enquiry and request was handled with courtesy and efficiency.
I will consider Select Hotel on my next trip to Paris.
