We had a booking snafu at another hotel, to which they could not accommodate us due to OUR error in not booking enough nights. We booked this nearby hotel, which per night was 1/2 what we paid at the prior hotel. The room was SMALL, and bare bones. No clock, few outlets, and the bathroom is tiny. The perk at... More

My wife and I stayed here after our AirBnB had to cancel last minute due to a water issue. The location of this hotel is great! We fly into ORY and took the 12 Euro trip pp using the airport tram and the RER to Luxemburg station. From there it was only a 5 minute walk to the hotel. Like... More

Booked this hotel for location to the points of interest we wanted to see. Notre Dame, Louvre, Eiffel Tower etc. We took the train from Nice to Paris as a 2 day side trip. Previous reviews are correct...close to Luxembourg gardens. We found the rooms adequate for European standards and the price. We were on the top floor., and the... More

The location of this hotel is truly what gives this place top marks. It is situated a three minute walk from Luxembourg RER station, a direct line from the Charles de Gaulle airport, and only two stops (or a 15 minute walk) from Chatelet, the main underground connecting you to anywhere in Paris. Two buildings down is a Marche Franprix,... More

My wife and I found the hotel to be neat and tidy with exceptionally helpful staff. The rooms are not large although the bathroom was large. The hotel was ideally situated near the Luxembourg Gardens and only a 15 minute walk to Notre Dame. All in all a very pleasant experience.

When we checked in the main lady who works the front desk was extremely rude to us. Very cold and unwelcoming towards us. The rest of the staff was fine for our stay. The rooms were very small for as expensive as the hotel was.

The rates are quite high and the rooms are small. You'll feel like in a air tight zip lock in the shower. only one extra plug point in the room. If you are on business and have gadgets with you, the you will have to carry a multi plug. Location is good and close to the tube.. walkable distance to... More

My primary criteria for any accommodation are good location, good service, and undisturbed sleep. The Hotel des Mines is quite centrally located, just a few minutes' walk from the Luxembourg RER station. From here it's only 1 stop to the St Michel station (beside the Seine and Notre Dame), and 3 stops to Gare du Nord. We found this to... More

If you are planning to stay in the Latin quarter, Hotel des Mines is a good two star alternative. Perfect location for long distance and RER trains. It is just a short walk from Luxembourg RER station. I had a quiet room away from Boulevard Saint Michel (a couple of times I could hear some kind of centrifugation (?) in... More
