“LOCATION”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2014

We booked 5 nights. Reason for booking was the location, and very good price package (B&B) and rave reviews.

Small hotel. Easy checkin, friendly front staff.

The room was TINY. And for some reason, cluttered with unnecessary furniture. I think one can expect small rooms in Paris, but this was tiny! Did not expect this, really.

The next morning requested a transfer to a larger room "junior suite" and paid a differential. The hotel staff were very good about it. Moved our bags in the tiny lift.

The breakfast was the usual continental. Neutral quality.

The only reason one would stay here is the extremely good location - close to St Germain, good food nearby, metro, buses. Quiet. Friendly staff.

Dear puo,

Thank you for your review and your kind remarks concerning the efficiency and friendliness of our staff.
As you mentioned our rooms like all the hotels in Paris are small. We do furnish them to create a comfortable atmosphere, however we understand that it may be inconvenient for some of our guests.
If you had requested we would have with pleasure, removed part of the furnishings in order to make your stay more agreeable.
Although we have many wonderful reviews concerning the quality of our breakfast we do understand that it may not appeal to everyone but we are always ready to add extra products at the request of our guests.
We are constantly working to improve on every aspect of our hotel and our breakfast is no exception.
That is why we are very happy that you took the time to write this review and we will be looking at ways to improve on the points that you have made.
I am always available for any other information that you may need concerning our hotel.

Yours sincerely

Benjamin Maba
The Director.

A lovely, comfortable hotel with a very friendly, accommodating staff. Contrary to another review above, I found this to be one of the quietest hotels I've ever stayed at. It's on a tiny street with hardly any traffic, but we were on the fifth floor. Yep the room was tiny, but the bed was large and comfortable. There were some small shelves but no drawers for clothes. Very small bathroom and shower, but the fixtures were modern and the water pressure strong. Surrounded by literally hundreds of cafes, restaurants, bakeries, art galleries in a charming area, only steps from the Seine and art museums. So much within walking distance.

We searched high and low on the internet for the perfect hotel for our August visit. We decided on this hotel and it not only met, but exceeded our expectations. The rooms were small, but that is what you should expect when you travel in Europe. If you are looking for a large hotel room, then book elsewhere, though I have to say you will be missing out on a fantastic experience.

It was very near the metro, and easy to travel with our luggage. The staff was friendly, the room was clean, and the bed was comfortable.

It was walking distance (for a young couple in theor 30's with no mobility issues) to many famous landmarks and locations, and near many walking tours in our guidebooks. There are lots of cafe's and restrants in the area. Right around the corner from the hotel is a small grocery - we used this to pick up some bottles of water, fresh fruit, and snacks for the day.

Fantastic hotel, and we will quickly book again on our next trip to Paris!

This hotel is in a great location with an updated Parisian feel. The room was expectedly small, but very nice and clean! I'm generally a sound sleeper, but the street noise woke me up multiple times a night. The staff were all very nice and helpful, but worked slowly.

Excellent location: lots of bars and restaurants nearby
Friendly staff
Rooms very small but to be expected. The street was a bit noisy at night, it could wake up sensitive people.
Rooms were clean with good amenities.
Breakfast was too expensive, go to Paul 5min away instead.

Dear Grischun123'
Thank you for your review.
I am indeed happy to know that you enjoyed your time in Paris and with us. The Hotel Louis 2 is very well positioned in the heart of the 6th area, Just one minute from the metro Odeon and surrounded by wonderful tourist spots. The area is also known for its great day and night life.
It's true that we have a very friendly and caring staff.
I am sorry that you found our breakfast too expensive however it is possible to reserve breakfast on arrival for the duration of your stay, for only 10 euro and not the usual 15 euros.
Also if you contact us before your arrival with details of any breakfast products that you would like to have, we will be only too happy to meet with your needs.
Again I thank you for taking the time to review our hotel and I hope we will see you again in the near future.

Yours sincerely

I was looking for a nice & typical hotel in the center of Paris to spend a lovely weekend with my bf. On booking I found a special offer for a comfort room at the Hotel Louis 2 (155€ per night instead of 244€).
The position is absolutely perfect (carrefour de l'odeon). This is the only good thing.
Actually the hotel is nice, well decorated & clean.
So what's wrong?
I had to wait 35 min to check in because the young lady (all the staff is very young) had her head in the clouds. She gave me a tiny tiny room (no more than 9mq). I asked for a better one as long I reserved the comfort one (the difference is bath/tube bath). The staff has been kind and satisfy my request after 40 minutes. Not big change because the new room was about 10mq, but better than nothing also because they explained me that only junior suites are bigger than standard or comfort rooms. In the center of Paris is pretty common to get small rooms, I know it, but this one was really tiny (impossible to move with 2 hand luggages).
In the room there are no 4 stars facilities (no coffee machine for example). The bathroom was tiny as the rest of the room. Although the decoration is nice. The bed not that comfortable and the queen bed is made by 2 single beds.
A lot of noises. You can hear everything from others rooms or corridor.
The staff, maybe because so young & un-experienced, is not that professional.
I travel quite a lot, I sleep in 4 stars hotel as in bead&breakfast or un-starred hotels and I never NEVER had an experience like this. The price is not justified especially if you pay the full rate (244€!!!!). In the same street there are better hotels for the same price (Relais de l'odeon et hotel odeon).
Please don't waist your money

I regret that your stay with us did not meet with your expectations. And I apologize for any inconvenience that you may have endured. Our staff Of diverse ages are usually dynamic,reactive and attentive to our guests needs, and it's indeed unfortunate that this was not the case for you.
It is true that our rooms are not large in size which is standard for Parisian hotels in the 6th area. We will soon have tea making facilities in all our rooms for the moment they are available at the request of our guests.
Thank you for your appreciation in regards to cleanliness and decoration of our rooms.
I assure you that I have taken note of everything you have mentioned and I will work together with my team to make the necessary improvements.
