Checking in at this chic boutique Left Bank stay is akin to a trip to Wonderland, all neon-bright colors, gleaming surfaces and unexpected details. Designer Sybille de Margerie, whose imprimatur is also on icons like Hôtel de Crillon, has pulled out the stops in her re-styling of this classic Parisian coach house in the funky Latin Quarter. Each room is inspired by its own historical epoch, from Medieval to 1970s Paris, and features textiles and wallpapers in luxe textures like silk and velvet by Lelièvre and Pierre Frey. A tranquil terrace, meanwhile, offers a more traditional take on Parisian style (think wrought iron café chairs), the perfect spot for café au lait and croissants before hitting the Quartier.
In the Area
You’re within sashaying distance of one of Paris’s most beautiful public spaces, the 60-acre Luxembourg Gardens, so take a stroll along its serene pathways before checking out the magnificent domed Pantheon, which offers a historic crypt along with breathtaking views over the city from the dome’s colonnade. Get a taste of risque old Paris at the iconic Crazy Horse, an avant garde cabaret operating since the 1950s. Finally, sate your sweet tooth at a classic patisserie like Carla Marletti or drop by the Catherine Deneuve-decorated Le Salon du Pantheon tea house.
How to Get There
Hotel is located close to many attractions, restaurants, shops and the Luxembourg gardens. The room was a nice size (group of 3 with a very large bed and a single fold out bed). A simple breakfast of breads, cereal, meats, cheeses, yogurt and scrambled eggs is served in the lobby's sitting area. There is an extra charge for the small buffet, which is costly but in line with the going rate of other hotels that offer breakfast. A nice added bonus is that in the afternoon the breakfast area is a nice place to relax with a complementary cup of coffee or tea and a small pastry offered daily to the guests. The front desk staff members are very hard working, friendly and helpful. They all spoke and understood English so there were no language difficulties. Very satisfied with this hotel and we would not hesitate to stay here again.
We are a family of 3 and chose this hotel because of the mostly excellent reviews and we were not disappointed. It’s situated in a nice area with lots of places to eat nearby. The hotel is clean and comfortable and the staff are helpful and friendly. Our room was spacious enough with a double bed, single bed and a small table and chair. The shower was amazing. We did not hear any street noise or even noise from our neighbours. Breakfast was great value for money and just what we needed before a day of sightseeing. There is a shop a door or 2 away where you can get snacks/drinks etc. Check in/check out was quick and easy and the hotel looked after our luggage on our final day as we had a late flight. We mostly walked around Paris from the hotel. At the bottom of the road the hotel is on is the Notre dame, maybe 10/15 minute walk, from here we used the Seine river hop on hop off cruise to reach the Eiffel Tower. From the tower we walked to the Arc de Triomphe then down the Champs-Elysées and then all the way back to the hotel, it was a lot of walking but a brilliant way to see so much of Paris. We used the river cruise again (bought a 2 day ticket in advance) to reach the Louvre. We also walked from the hotel and visited the bastille and Marais areas. The Jardin du Luxembourg is a 5 minute walk from the hotel. We had an amazing time in Paris and if we visit again we would stay at this hotel again.
We stayed here for 4 nights. I chose this hotel for the location and the rave reviews on Trip Advisor. The staff was very welcoming and professional. We were checked in by Karim and he is amazing. We had booked a Double Deluxe room which was 226 square feet with a mini bar /safe. There were small closets on either side of the bed and a small table with two chairs in front of the windows. There was a view of the tip of the Eiffel Tower. The bathroom was a decent size with the best water pressure/shower I have ever used in a hotel. The only negative to the room was that there was really no good place to put your suitcase. You are 2 blocks from the Luxembourg station that is the direct line to the airport. The area felt very safe and there were dozens of restaurants nearby that were reasonably (student) priced. We had the breakfast at the Hotel and it was very good with eggs, bacon, sausage, cereal, fruit, yogurt, croissants, coffee, tea etc. They also had complimentary tea, coffee, and water out in the afternoons and evenings. There was a honor bar set up where you could help yourselves and just let the Hotel know what you took.
I have really enjoyed this hotel! Very nice hotel - good location, spacious rooms, comfortable bed, flat-screen TV, minifridge, good quality toiletries, good wi-fi, fantastic and helpful staff! Close to RER Station Luxembourg. What else do you need? I definetely recommend this hotel!
We stayed in a triple room which was much smaller than advertised on booking.com and did not have a balcony. The room was very small for two adults and a pre teen. Bathroom needed some work as a number of the tiles were missing in the shower and there was mould in the sealant. The carpet also needed a clean.
That said the staff were very friendly and the location was great for walking to the attractions and we felt very safe in the district. Paris is very expensive so we expected to pay a higher amount for accommodation but it was lacking the finishing touches that would have made it worth it.
