Los Angeles, California
July 9, 2002
The room itself was clean, well-kept, and had a private toilet and shower, as well as a dorm-sized refrigerator. Au Palais Gourmand is on the 4th floor and the building has an elevator just big enough for me, a daypack, and a rolling travel case to walk into and back out of, so keep that in mind if you've got a lot of luggage.
The boardinghouse is a block south of the Notre-Dame des Champs Metro station and within walking distance of the magnificent Jardins du Luxembourg and the Boulevard du Montparnasse. If you like quiet and would prefer to stay off the beaten path, try this place. Room prices vary depending on whether or not you want a private shower and toilet.
