The location of the hotel was terrific, just few minutes walking from Pantheon. For being that central the price was quite convenient. However, the place wasn't very clean. The wi-fi connection, which was crucial for me as I was travelling for work, was very poor and when I complained about it, they just shrugged.

Comfortable, clean, cozy old hotel with a Fourth Republic aura; ideal for those on a budget but who really want to stay in the Latin Quarter. A bit hidebound but in a charming way (they don't do third-party bookings), you can still either get a complete hotel room or one where you share w/c and/or shower. Breakfast is ample for... More

In the Quartier Latin, a pleasant neighbourhood, very close to the metro, just 3 stops from Gare du Nord. It;'s a cosy hotel because it's small and the owners are sweet. The place is somewhat worn-out, but very clean with fresh sheets and good towels. So for people who don't expect fancy things but are happy with clean, good location... More

The Gay Lussac is a very old and battered hotel. Almost everything shows wear and tear, from the broken ceilling lamps in the stairs to the curtains of the rooms. Some repairs are almost unbelievable, such as ventilation piece nailed to the wall with huge nails sticking out by several centimeters, or a bedlamp cord broken and tied back with... More

I've stayed here three times and the only reason I hesitated to review it was a selfish one - I was afraid it it had more publicity, more people would come and it would be harder to get a reservation. It's a very clean hotel, with a friendly staff. The rooms have just gone up a bit, but are still... More

I've stayed in many hotels in Paris over the last 20+ years - but I just love the simplicity of the Gay Lussac...not to mention the fabulous location. Yes it is a bit tired and old-fashioned, but I have always found it to be clean and welcoming. Let's face it, in Paris the only reason for being in your hotel... More

I have gone to Paris at least once a year for 20+ years. Now I stay in different areas, to learn a new neighborhood each time. But for several years I always went to the same place, because it was comfortable, cheap and friendly. It was the Hotel Gay-Lussac, in the 5th arrondissment, on the Left Bank's Rue Gay-Lussac. Still... More

I stayed for two nights at the hotel Gay-Lussac in a single room with shower, and I'm definitely keeping this address for next time I go to Paris. To my opinion, this is an awesome value for your money: I paid 78 euros per night, which is rather cheap for Paris. The location could not be better as the hotel... More

This hotel was not a bad price, but do not be pleased with original price that is offered. I ended up paying more than what was discussed, the food was not fresh and the rooms are not well maintained at all. They were slightly dirty and the shower doesnt even have a stand, so it is more like a hand... More

We just stayed at hotel Gay-Lussac for 8 days. Were a little doubtful at first from reading some scary reviews, but our experience was quiet good. We had a large attic room on the 6th floor, with bathroom + shower + breakfast for 2, for 90Euro/night. You won´t find this anywhere else in expensive Paris, needless to say at this... More
