About Hôtel Au Royal Cardinal

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.

For Paris this was pretty good value
It was a bit shabby, the lift didn’t work & the central heating was really hot. Beds comfortable & clean, reception staff helpful, location wonderful.

Typical Paris budget hotel
My room was typical of a French budget hotel room. Small, no air-conditioning, tired looking. But it was clean and comfortable enough, the staff were very friendly, there's plenty of food to be found around the hotel and there are 2 metro stations near by. The shower was surprisingly good with plenty of jets. Oh and the wifi worked well on my phone.
