“Wonderful staff, good location.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

The 3 star rating of Hotel Observatoire is on the mark. If you're looking for the Ritz experience keep looking. If you're looking for a neat, clean place to stay that is conveniently situated, this pleasant little hotel works. The staff, all of whom spoke excellent English, were extremely gracious and helpful. They repeatedly provided excellent recommendations, directions, explanations, etc. They are probably the most valuable asset Hotel Luxembourg has.

You are about 150 meters from a Metro/ RER stop. We took a single train from the CDG airport to the hotel - easy! The staff explained how the Metro system works and we used it extensively along with lots of walking. You are close to the 3 times a week market on Rue des Carmes, to Rue Moffetard, St. Germain and it's endless shopping, and about a mile from Notre Dame. I could go on and on. The WiFi worked without any glitches and was free as advertised.

It was our second stay at this hotel and we're looking forward to our third stay there.

Dear MichaelVelo,

We do thank you for your very pleasant review. We are delighted to read that, once again, you enjoyed our services and staff. We do have a skilful team always eager to help and advise our guests whenever they need to.

As you mentioned, Hotel Observatoire Luxembourg is placed in the heart of the action. It is located a few steps to the Luxembourg Gardens' area. Moreover, you can have access to Paris main tourist attractions and shops taking the RER B at the Luxembourg station or the bus just opposite the hotel.
Our satisfaction and reward is when our guests come back to visit us.
We are grateful for your loyalty and will be delighted to receive you a third time and many more.

Kind Regards,
Elia Gnako - Front desk manager -

The Hotel was just as it appeared in the photos.Very clean.The beds were very comfortable, bathroom was modern ,great shower. Overall, the room and bath were a little tight, but fine for the amount of time you spend in it for 2 people. The rooms are soundproof. The staff spoke English and were eager to help with trips and restaurant suggestions .Across from the beauttiful Luxenborg Gardens.RER and lots of breakfast options steps away. They recommended a restaurant up the block." Le Mauzac. " Very good, French, comfortable...super nice staff. We went twice!

Dear Paris Trip2-13,

It is very important to have our guest’s opinion and we thank you for sharing yours with us.

We regret the room was not spacious enough. It's unfortunately one of the characteristics of Latin district’s accommodations.
Therefore, we try to make up for it providing a good quality service to our guests.

Mentioning the Latin District; the hotel is well located a few steps to the Luxembourg Gardens' area. Moreover, you can have access to Paris main tourist attractions taking the RER B at the Luxembourg station.
Next time, try our recently renovated Brasserie Le Luco. We will have the pleasure to serve you our new menu.

We thank you for your loyalty and will be very happy to welcome you again in the near future.
Kind Regards

We stayed 3 nights in early Feb 2013 in a superior room, it was clean. Perfect location, friendly and helpful staff, 10 minutes walk to Notre Dame/Montparnasse or a 10 min tube ride to major attractions. Would definitely come back to stay again!

Really enjoyed our stay in Paris and coming back to this little hotel every night really contributed to that experience. As soon as we arrived we were greeted by the friendly and helpful receptionists who upgraded us ( pleasant surprise) and even allowed is to check into the room early. The room was bigger than expected. Clean and very tasteful. The bed was heavenly!!! The little details are important and made the stay... The complimentary champagne for my friends birthday was a lovely surprise as well as the the adapters which you can borrow from reception , if you forget to bring yours! If you stay here, you might not get an upgrade and you may not get champagne, but you will have a really lovely stay anyway in this charming little hotel :)

I would recommend this lovely small hotel for a weekend break. Great location near Jardin du Luxembourg and The Pantheon. Cafes and restaurants only 5/10 mins walk away and only 15 mins on Metro to Gard du Nord. Double room was a bit small but clean and modern. Excellent shower.

I recently travelled to Paris with my family of 7, 5 children ages 16-27. We loved the Hotel Observatoire. The rooms are small, but they are very comfortable, fresh and updated. Three of my children shared a room which is very hard to do anywhere in Europe unless you book the most deluxe room. The concierge Moustafa was incredilby helpful - I was in contact with him before we left, and he was very friendly and offered great advice while we were there. He also arranged for a car to take us to and from the airport. Great location, right near the Luxembour gardens, and very easy to navigate Paris from the hotel. We also ate breakfast at the cafe adjacent to the hotel which was very convenient for us and delicious. Great hotel for a family travelling to Paris
