How to Get There
The place has a quality feel to it. Room was quiet and nice. I booked wrong date but was corrected for me with a smile which i appreciated. Only worry i have was fire escape only one normal staircase down being on the 5th floor.
We stayed four nights in this hotel. It was very quiet, clean, comfortable. The staff was welcoming and friendly. Breakfast was delicious and satisfying. The location was convenient to the Metro and walking distance to most of Paris. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Extra...we arrived at 8 am after a long flight from South Africa. Our room was ready!
We had four nights at this delightful hotel. The staff are excellent—welcoming and professional. Our check-in and check-out was smooth. Two days before our arrival we received a form. All we had to do upon arrival was sign in. We had a deluxe room which we had been advised to opt for. Although it was smaller than other deluxe options we have stayed in around the world, it was thoughtfully designed and no problem at all. We had a comfy bed, good bedside reading lamps, two small closets that had enough hangers, a small seating area where we could work (we were both working). There is a mini bar on the honor system, and a lounge area downstairs, which has an impressive selection of art books. We had drinks there with a colleague and the three of us filled it. However, there are chairs and tables in adjoining rooms (one of which has a seating nook) so you can actually have privacy. Whether in the main lounge or other seating section we were charmed by the atmosphere. Although the scale may be called small the better term would be ‘thoughtfully designed’ because there is no sense of being cramped.The hotel is less than two blocks away from the Metro and bus stops, as well as a taxi rank. There is a wide range of restaurants to choose from, all within a few blocks, and patisseries for a quick breakfast or lunch. For our purposes and given the places where we had to meet people, this was ideal. It was also within reach of public transportation to enable us to get to the Louvre easily (for example), and we walked to the Luxembourg Gardens—a brisk 10 minutes there and strolling 15 minutes back. We would stay there again and consider it a gem.
The Hotel des Academies et des Arts is the perfect retreat for people who want to be in the 6th Arondissement--near the Luxembourg Gardens, and less than a block from the Vavin stop on the #4 metro line (so easily accessible to everything). The spaces are small but quiet and well appointed and comfortable. The service and staff are excellent: charming, solicitous and knowledgable. And the little in-house bar is perfect for an evening night-cap or to meet a friend.
This hotel has a very nice and relax atmosphere from the moment you walk in. We were travelling with our two daughters 11 and 13. We had connecting rooms, they were too pleased to find they had a double bed to themselves with a nice bathroom. The bathroom in our room was tiny but convenient. Yes the rooms are not huge...it's Paris... but they have made the most out of the space and you have everything you need at hand.
Staff is most accommodating and most friendly, very un-parisian lol.
The hotel is round the corner of the subway and a couple of buses going into town as well.
The only thing we didn't quite fancy was breakfast. But there are plenty of alternatives near by.
We are marriott platinum but I think I would def come here again when in Paris as staff makes all the difference and price vs quality when travelling with a family is excellent.
