The affordable Best Western Aramis Saint-Germain is an affordable hotel in an excellent Left Bank location.

Best Western Aramis Saint-Germain is a good budget hotel in a great 6th arrondissement location. As in many budget Paris hotels, rooms here are small, but modern and well-maintained bathrooms, air-conditioning, elevator, and a great location more than make up for it. A continental breakfast buffet is offered daily, in a bright, modern space that also accommodates a small wine bar. Conveniently located on Rue de Rennes shopping street, steps from Saint Placide Metro station, a 7-minute stroll to the Luxembourg Gardens, and an easy walk to the shops, restaurants, and sights of Saint Germain.
