How to Get There
My wife and I stayed in Paris over a long weekend for our 20th anniversary. We upgraded to the Junior Suite and requested a balcony room. The room was spacious and comfortable and the air conditioning was welcomed since we were there during the heat wave. The room is definitely set up more for couples as the bathtub was in the room; the shower, wash sink, and toilet were in a separate small room. We did not partake of breakfast other than grabbing a pastry and juice. The room had a mini fridge and small vault large enough to stow my laptop while we were out. The hotel is not far from Luxembourg Gardens and Notre Dame and next door to the University. Because it's near the University, there are a lot of quick food places to eat and there's a small grocery store a few doors down. It's easy to catch the train at Luxembourg Gardens or catch the bus right outside the hotel at the corner. The Louvre is less 10 minutes away on the bus. We walked to the river to catch the river taxi but missed it and ended up walking to the Eiffel Tower - don't do that, catch a taxi or something. We were out the door before breakfast most mornings and back late so we didn't have much interaction with the staff but when we did they were more than welcoming and accommodating - and tolerating since we don't speak French. If handicapped, be aware the lift/elevator is really small; most days I took the stairs. Get one of the larger rooms and you'll be happy you stayed at this place. Most of the negative reviews I saw when looking for a place were from people who had unrealistic expectations for European hotel rooms (they're small) and privacy (not realizing this is more a couples hotel). Stay here because it's clean, friendly, good location, and perfect for a couple. I should also note that we felt safe the entire time while at/near the hotel.
Lapin Blanc is a small hotel located near the Sorbonne and generally good walking distance or public transportation access to everything you want to see in Paris. The hotel itself is small--- a converted house, with maybe 20 or so rooms.
Our room was large for Paris, extremely clean, recently renovated and (important this summer) well air conditioned. The staff is friendly and in fact charmingly outgoing.
If you reserve on their website, you may get a "free" express breakfast--- pastries, juice, yogurt, coffee--- all really good. They also have an afternoon "snack"--- juice, water, fruit, sandwiches and really good cake.
Despite the hotel's location on a busy street, it is not all at noisy.
And the price is very reasonable for all that is provided. Skip the chain hotel and stay here! I would return in an instant--- I was a "free man in Paris" etc.
Fantastic experience. Staff was very helpful with any requests and directions. Room was very clean. Bed was terrific, no sore back! Pretty central location for walking to most if not all historic sights.
