Two islands sit in the middle of the Seine at the very heart of Paris. The more majestic one, Ile de la Cité, sparkles with history. This is the birthplace of Paris, the home of the Gothic Sainte-Chapelle, and the site of the prison where Marie Antoinette was held before her execution. Tourists flock to see the iconic Notre Dame and the beautiful bridges that straddle the Seine. Ile Saint-Louis, the more provincial island, welcomes you with cozy traditional eateries, small boutiques, and what some people say is the best ice cream in the city. This is essential Paris from its very beginnings to its modern appeal.
Eat, see, and stay in Ile de la Cite / Ile Saint-Louis
When tourists visit Paris there are the usual attractions on the checklist. Sainte-Chapelle often is overlooked (nearby Notre Dame) so veer off the path for a spectacular site.
Make sure to head upstairs for the secret chamber. Winding stairs afford visitors a chance to see the stained glass and featured room.
It’s a beautiful building that poignantly tells the sad stories of revolution, revolts, excesses and penalties. It’s well curated and do head for the interactive screen that brings you through the different parts of the building. Choose from 5-6 languages. This is in the first room on the right side and we found it useful for a quick overview of...
One of our favourite streets in Paris and we were wandering up to find an old favourite restaurant that has now closed. Luckily we found Sorza and the lovely, attentive Dutch lady who looked after us so well. The food was absolutely delicious - my husband had the French onion soup followed by the Parmesan soufflé with rocket salad -...
All the people complaining about the size of the icecreams at Berthillon are right. This ice tastes so good, the scoops will always be to small.
I was last in Paris on a schooltrip about twenty-eight years ago. This year I went back with my family. After all those years I could find Berthillon again with great ease and my...
We had a great Saturday lunch here, the place is very busy and buzzing, the food is standard bistro fare (the steak is very tasty) and the service is friendly although they made an error with the check (which was corrected without problems).
Overall = 7,5/10.
Just the best location, with excellent staff.
Surrounded by quirky shops, individual cafes and excellent restaurants, and just five minutes from Notre Dame, this was ideal for us.
Such an interesting building, 3 lounge spaces for quiet moments, a little bar and a fire in winter. Our room had 12 walls and 26 open beams.
The concierge staff were brilliant....
We just returned from a nine day stay in Paris living at the Hotel Lutece. I cannot imagine we could ask for a more wonderful experience. Normally when in Paris we stay on the Left Bank but decided this time to try The Isle St. Louis. What a good decision this was!
The rooms are charming and plenty large. We...
It a quaint little hotel that really has the Paris feel. The island that it is on is a great location. It is located just behind the cathedral. It is in walking distant to many of the sites in Paris. The shops and restaurants are great. A hidden jewel!!
Excellent location, very close to Notre Dame, it was easy to walk around, friendly staff. The room was clean and warm. The space was quite small, but I think is the average. The bed was comfortable and the WiFi was free.
A wonderful location, next to Notre Dame, and easy access to Latin Quarter and the Marais. It was quiet, and felt very safe, and small and intimate.Staff are kind and helpful.
Breakfast can be ordered and served in the room.
I asked for a kettle and was given one.
I would recommend this hotel, and would stay again.
