Reviewed 23 September 2017 via mobile

The hotel is in the Latin Quarter of Paris. It is an old building but perfectly equipped yet the lift and passageways are very narrow.
The room was large enough and nice to be able to open the windows for air. The bathroom was not large but clean and very useable.
They serve breakfast individually and it was adequate with a croissant and bread with jam and coffee.
There is a parking area further up the road but it's around 35 euros for 24 hours.

Location is great, beds are nice and comfy which was nice as the room was freezing cold. The hotel & rooms are worn down. Breakfast french - croissant and bread with butter and marmalade, we bought our own yoghurt and cheese. We stayed there 5 days and during our time the staff was very indifferent and unwilling to help or be a little friendly. We where "upgraded" to a bigger room, but when we where about to check out we where informed that was not the case and we where forced to pay the extra amount for the upgrade - which they themselves suggested in the first place.

Good location and some charm but the hotel is in desperate need of renovation.
Very arrogant staff and poor cleaning. Put your money some where else.
The rooms are very different in standard and
you have to be lucky if you get a decent one.

L 'hôtel du Lys est ainsi : beaucoup de gens l'adorent certains le détestent.
Cette très vielle maison est plein de charme. Nombreux y sont sensible d'autres pas.
D'où parfois des commentaires très contrastés mais toujours légitimes.

My adult family and I have been staying at this hotel regularly over the last 20 years. It is family run and the standards, while not in any sense of luxury class, has been rising steadily over these years. For instance last year, an elevator was installed - something that makes the hotel even more appealing. Previously, the walk to the 5th floor, when your room was located there, was a challenge, particularly to older guests. While being just off the corner of the Blvd St Germain and Blvd St Michel it is extremely quiet, which is surprising because these two streets are some of the busiest in Paris.
If you aim to stay in Paris in a quaint, spotlessly clean, family hotel, and where all the staff are helpful and friendly and in one of the best locations, you can do no better than the Hotel du Lys

My husband and I were flying to Bangkok and ended up with a 36 hour layover in Paris. We had just been in April so opted to stay somewhere cheap for the night knowing we wanted to enjoy the city more than the room. The room is what you pay for. It's the same size as most hotel rooms you'll find in Europe. The bathroom is definitely dated but again served its purpose. The major downfall we found rather quickly was there was only one outlet in the entire room. The staff was kind and the check in and check out process was very easy.
