About Hôtel Au Royal Cardinal, Paris

Budget hotel with free WiFi in the Latin Quarter

Island hopping
This budget-friendly hotel puts you in the Latin Quarter, on Paris's Left Bank. It's a 5-minute walk to the cobbled streets of Ile Saint-Louis, and double that to Notre-Dame Cathedral on Ile de la Cité, the next island along. Cardinal Lemoine Metro Station is 100 meters away.

Gardens left and right
You'll be a 15-minute stroll from the 400-year-old Luxembourg Gardens. Here you'll find prize people-watching, lots of statues, an orangery, and a fruit garden. The Jardin des Plantes – home to a botanical garden, zoo, and natural history museum – is within 500 meters.

Breakfast in bed
Hôtel Au Royal Cardinal is on the bustling Rue des Ecoles, but double-glazed windows help block out street noise. Each morning, you can enjoy a tray with fresh croissants, cheese, yogurt, and coffee or tea delivered to your room. A private bar is also available on site. Guests give a thumbs-up to the friendly staff.

Free WiFi
Clean, compact guestrooms offer free WiFi and satellite TV. The rooms are traditionally furnished and you'll have handy perks like hair dryers in the bathrooms and in-room safes.

Value stay
Hotel is fine, no frills, clean place and friendly staff. Bed was not the most comfortable and shower pressure was weak, other than that, definitely a good value for the price and good location very close to the 10 line on metro and close to river.

Nothing great
The staff wasn’t the most helpful and the room was just ok, there was no air conditioner so it was quite hot but the location was great, near a train station and several monuments

This is our second stay here and it was better than the last. First, the location is wonderful. We stayed on the fifth floor and the view was amazing. The staff is friendly. If you're on a budget, this is a great place to stay.

Amazing Location
This hotel was pretty darn good. The location was central to almost everything and the staff was extremely friendly. Though we did not partake, breakfast was reasonable and we heard good things from other guests.
