Hotel Royal Cardinal is located near the Cardinal Lemoine métro station and is right by Université Jussieu, so there are always lots of young people wandering about. It is a nice walk into the Saint Germain area of Paris or you can take a little bridge over the Seine to Ile St. Louis for a crêpe or an ice cream.
The lobby is simple but refined and is walled with mirrors, making it appear larger than it is. The hotel faces a fairly busy street but rooms have double glazed windows to keep the noise out. Breakfast is served in your room or you can leave the hotel and eat at the large bistro on the corner. The post office is just across the street which makes sending postcards easy! Prices range at around 120 Euros/night, not bad, considering the area.

Don’t be fooled by the name, there really isn’t anything royal about this place. Though it is really well situated, right in the heart of the latin quarter, with many bars and restaurants around it, the attraction pretty much stops there.
The hotel is frankly ugly, the rooms small and uncomfortable, with absolutely no charm. It is also right off a big, noisy street, and though I could say it’s good for “budget travel”, it really isn’t that cheap either.
I really do not recommend this place, as I think even a hostel would be a better solution.

Hotel Royal Cardinal is conveniently located in the heart of Latin Quarter in the 5th district. From here it's easy to navigate to different parts of Paris by metro, but there is also lots to do and see just by walking around in the neighborhood. Besides from Latin Quarter, the Notre Dame is close by. There are lots of little bars in this neighborhood. The area is also very safe, even during the night.
The hotel itself is decent for a two-star hotel, and for a bit over 100 euros you get a room with standard facilities and a modern bathroom. They have friendly staff at the front desk and the building is old; some might call it charming, some a bit shabby.
