“A solid Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

While a little bit worn, the hotel is a solid reliable experience. This was our third visit. The staff is five star. The location is five star. Visit the Le Bon Marche across the street and the Grand Epicerie. Best location in Paris. Taxis are in line 24/7 waiting for you. Walking distance to Notre Dame and many other sights. Subway across the street which will take you anywhere. A/C is great in summer. Room service 24/7 delivered in most instances within 10 minutes and no more expensive than restaurants. Wonderful live music in the lobby lounge until midnight. Wonderful connecting rooms if you have children. Would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: Street view rooms have better views but may be smaller than those with atrium view. No bad room how...

My wife and I stayed at Hotel Lutetia in March for four nights this past March. A fantastic experience! .
The junior suite with a 1 1/2 baths was spacious and very well appointed. The Frence doors in the bedroon and living room overlooked the Eiffel Tower. The bed was very comfortable and the bed and bathroom linens were first class. The marble bathroom was very well appointed The breakfast offered a wide selection of excellent breads and various foods. The staff very helpful and friendly throughout our stay.

We will be booking a five night visit in the next few days for October when we will be celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary. I have told all of my friends that this is a hotel not to miss!

Room Tip: Request a room that has been renovated

The Lutetia is a five star hotel by international standards. It has all the amenities that you would expect. I booked this at the last minute over the hotel internet site and booked a standard room at what appeared to be a reasonable rate. However on checkin we were advised that the room we booked was very small and we should upgrade to bigger room, which we did. No complaints on the size of the upgraded room but obviously the cost went up, so be aware of this when booking a room and get your expectations set in advance. The hotel's location is brilliant. Right next to a metro stop, boutique shops and good cafes, as well as supermarkets and wine shops. It is also an easy walk to many attractions and the rest are a short train ride away.

No complaints about the hotel, just a couple of observations. Given the number of english speaking visitors to France and particularly as guests of hotels of the quality of the Lutetia, a few more english speaking TV channels (other than the news channels) would be a welcome addition to the service. The wifi is free but again hotels of this quality should be providing a higher speed, quick download connection. French TV is wonderful but if you dont speak French then the internet is your entertainment zone and it should be of a better quality.

I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

Room Tip: The standard rooms are too small, get a room with a balcony over looking Raspail Bld

Lovely hotel......perfect location.....excellent service all round....my only piece of advice would be that the regular rooms are quite small so ask for a deluxe or junior suite......otherwise all good!!!!

Room Tip: Ask for nothing less than a deluxe room....regular rooms are very small.

Our stay at the Lutetia was extraordinary. The room was very good, the beds and pillows super comfortable and the bathroom large and clean with everything you could possibly need. The staff were always smiling, service was amazing.Wifi connection was fast. And last but not least the breakfast! There was such a big variety of food and so many choices ! Everything was wonderful. Thank you Hotel Lutetia for making my stay in Paris perfect.

When in Paris take the metro and it was one step from this elegant hotel small rooms but very good service and I truly felt I might see James Joyce around each stairwell or very French LIFT! For a bit more money than usual you can find a truly French experience with all US comforts. Be sure to eat elsewhere except for breakfast which was AMAZING!!!
