About Hotel Cluny Sorbonne in Paris

Services and Facilities at Hotel Cluny Sorbonne
Having been family run for many years, Hotel Cluny Sorbonne still retains much of its original character and people can even stay in the same small room as Arthur Rimbaud, yet eventually becoming a 2 star hotel they offer a 24 hour reception with English speaking staff, a luggage hold, free WiFi and a French continental style breakfast, so hence it is still classed as a budget hotel in Paris.
You will find a plaque on the facade of this budget hotel in Paris relating to this recognised French poet, with other reminders of him also throughout the city such as the Allee Arthur Rimbaud, and inside the building still has the original staircase.
