“Best Area / Louvre fans will love the art pieces!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

Small room and tiny lift.
Clean and comfortable bedding.
Excellent location if you are an Art Lover
Friendly English speaking owner and staff.
This is Paris and you will be out all Day so safety is more important.

They even allow us to leave our luggages for a day while we took a flight to another city and return to collect them.

Room Tip: It's better for couples or solo travellers.

We stayed here for 5 nights in January 2013. First impressions were not good. At our 9:30pm check-in the male clerk advised that the room type we had booked would not be available until the next day, and directed us to the Dufy Room on the 1st floor. I was very small with a tiny bathroom and an outlook onto the "inner courtyard" - which is really just a dusty light-well.
We endured it, and on enquiring of the day staff next morning as to a better room they were bemused as to why we hadn't been checked into a better room - there were in fact two available! We moved to the Chagall Room, which was larger with an outlook onto the Church St Germain l'Auxerrois and across to the Louvre - all round a far better room and in line with what we had booked.
The hotel is located within 5 min walk to two Metro stations on two different lines, there are a multitude of shops, cafes and utilities nearby, including a launderette, it is quiet at night and comfortably warm. The wifi service was excellent, and the staff were generally friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay here again!

All the very good and excellent ratings say it all - great staff, perfect location, clean, quiet, outstanding value, have returned often - the only reason for withholding 5 stars is a concern that some travelers are so unaware of Paris hotels in general that they might expect large rooms, and this is a wonderful hotel, but not a chain, not large rooms. Walk out the door and you have the Louvre, Pont Neuf, Pont des Arts, Rue Rivoli, 2 metro stations within 3 - 5 minutes stroll, as well as cafes, and Fumoir, great spot for a drink and just watch the world go by. Musee d'Orsay 15 minute stroll. Left bank, Notre Dame, St Chapelle, winding streets of St Germaine 10 - 15 minute walks away. Wonderful!!

This is a lovely hotel in Paris. Having stayed in one of the big chain hotels in Paris a month before, this hotel was a nice change as it has a more homey feel to it. Staff are nice and accomodating, the location is great (literally 3 min walk from Pont Neuf Metro stn and walking distance to Chatelet Metro stn). The room which was a duplex was really nice and clean. The duplex is Picasso on the 5th floor (even has a tiny balcony) which has magnificent views of the Louvre, Rue Rivoli and overlooked Saint Germaine church. For those who like to run, nothing beats this location where you can run by the Seine (Seine across the street) all the way to Eiffel... Breakfast room is small, but nice and breakfast a bit overpriced at 15 Euro. All in all, not a cheap hotel, but would definetly recommend it for its location, staff and rooms.

Room Tip: Picasso duplex on the 5th floor.

Location Location Location...You can't beat walking out the door of the hotel and looking at the Louvre. The building is eclectic so if you're looking for a western/US style room like a Hilton, keep looking. If you're wanting to experience a European style hotel, this is a great place to try. I have another trip to Paris coming up in a few weeks and am staying here again.

I've stayed three times over the last four years for several days each visit. The staff is always helpful and professional. The rooms are all named for artists and each has it's own unique charm. If it's critical that you have a stand up shower or bathtub, make sure to request it since many rooms have only one or the other. The only room that I'm aware of that I don't want to stay in is the one on the top floor with the bathroom at the loft level, up a ladder/stairs. I have stayed in other hotels in the area and have been disappointed and keep coming back to Hotel de la Place du Louvre.

I found the hotel in the Top 10 book and have stayed once during a personal vacation and twice when visiting on business. I'm heading back to the hotel in a few weeks for a personal vacation and I'm excited they had openings that fit my schedule.

NOTE: Taxis don't always know where the hotel is so I use the Louvre or another close location for my drop off point.

The elevator is small (two people, two rolling bags) but it's part of the charm. Breakfast is good and the rooms always comfy. Keep an open mind and enjoy the neighborhood!

Room Tip: If you have a preference re: bathtub or shower, you'll need to request it. I've stayed in...

The first impression I have of this charming old hotel is the friendliness of the doorman and his eagerness to help. Although the foyer is small It is lovely with a large winding staircase to the side of it. The staff were very sweet and did all they could to make sure our stay was pleasant. Of all the hotels on this trip this room on the third floor was by far the most comfortable and quite large. The bed was awesome. Large windows overlooked the comedy theatre one way and a park like square with a great fountain the other way. Breakfast was delightful and had quite varied buffet. Croissants...magnifique. Location was perfect. We walked everywhere. I would go back to this hotel in a heartbeat!

My wife and I stayed here. Location is fab just Ashley stroll to some sites or the metro. We found the room on 1 st floor more than serviceable. Yes they are small but bed was comfy, bathroom was clean recently refurbished and all of Paris is the same. Staff were very helpful and assisted when asked.overall very happy here and would stay again. Our room Chagall
