We've just spent a night in this lovely quaint hotel. Our bedroom was small and the shower-room is a feat of ingenuity to make everything fit. And it does! The bed was excellent. The decor is very nice. Breakfast is exactly what we wanted and quickly served. Everyone who looked after us was friendly. We were happy with our stay... More

Well, except for all those stairs! I know that many of the rooms are small and can be dark, but mine (room 22) was of a reasonable size, had a bright new bathroom with pretty tile work, and large french doors opening onto a small balcony with a table and chairs. I've been coming here for 30 years and this... More

Close to restaurants and shops. Well located in a side road so it is very quiet at night. A good Parisian breakfast is served in the morning. Lots of stairs so not for the elderly or if you have big bags. Clean comfortable beds. Would definitely stay here again

Main location but privet little street. The place is so charming that you might accept the 100 curved stairs you should climb to your room every day... at least once... i visited with my mother (78 years old) - it wasn't easy. The area is exiting, many cafes and restaurants, near by the "CITE" and other attractions. Close to METRO.

Very close to the main features of paris, very close to cafes and resturants, historic building but the room was small. It was neat no air conditioner, we were given a fan, which was okay. good location, no lift all stairs okay if you do not have much luggage.

I stayed here in February of 2014 while travelling with my cousin. It took us quite a while to find the hotel after we came from the Metro, as it is along a very small and private street. When we got there, the man working at the desk seemed fairly polite, maybe a little snappy, but he talked to us... More

This hotel elicits strong responses. If you are charmed by the idea of staying in a hotel that dates back to the 1600s and are ready for what that may entail, then you're in the right place. We had room 19 for 5 nights. That meant taking about 80 stairs each day to return to our room. Steep stairs. Although... More

Convenient location & accessible to subway, supermarkets and sightseeing points. We were a bit clumsy carrying large luggages by staircases on 4th floors for 3 girls. Room was clean and cosy old European style. Noted it was a historic building and appreciate their efforts to restore the old building in good shape. Lovely breakfast in a tiny cosy room.

I first went to Hotel du Lys thirty years ago with my husband and 16 yr old daughter. We stayed there twice that year for several days and found it to our liking. It's an old historic building and perhaps it is not for everyone: no elevator, no "glitz". But it was just right for us then and great for... More

The hotel is well located but I think that is the best it can offer. The room was clean but a bit weary rather than romantic. Also my room was quite small. On the other hand, as it was clean and I also liked the small breakfast I would stay there again.
