We only ended up at this hotel because of a mess up in our booking in another hotel. However we were impressed by the sumptuous decor in the hotel lobby, which is lovely. The gentleman on the front desk was polite and spoke excellent English, even when delivering bad news (in our case, that the RER was going to be on strike the next day and that getting to our planned day at EuroDisney was going to be very difficult - won marks for helping us work though it and getting us there!)
Locationwise it is also very good. Luxembourg is south of the Seine, and from there you can wander through Odeon and into the city centre, or into St Germain. Luxembourg RER station is no more than a stone's throw away. It is classic, atmospheric Paris and you really couldn't get a more quintessentially Parisien location. The area is also dotted with small bars and art shops etc. The road on which the hotel sits is as quiet as you will find in Paris - up a very quiet side street.
The room itself was more typical of a Parisien hotel, being nicely decorated and clean, but on the cramped side. There was nothing wrong with the room, it was just a bit small. The bathroom was fine too, good powerful shower.
The hotel is fine: perfectly nice place to stay and nothing particularly wrong with it apart from a very eccentric lift. That said, it suffers from the classic Paris hotel bugbears of a small room and a view (in our case) of a fire escape and an opposing wall through the window, as well as being a touch on the overpriced side for what was a pretty small room. For the money they're asking for, you can do better.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Only few steps away from the Jardin du Luxembourg and Panthéon, the elegant Haussmannian style building is located in a dead end small street, providing a peace haven in the very lively Latin Quarter. Sigmund Freud used to stay there at the end of the 19th century. Across from the hotel and listed as a historical building, the hotel particulier of Madame de Maintenon is where the illegitimate children of Madame de Montespan, King Louis the 14th’s mistress, were raised. Packed with history, the hotel offers a warm and cozy environment with a soothing design. ... more less
