“Back for 2nd consecutive year”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2013

My family and I returned to the hotel in October after staying last year. It was just as good--if not better--as the first time. The level of service and the location is superb, and having the little restaurant on the ground floor is very convenient for breakfasts. Mustafa at the front desk is perhaps the most helpful person working at hotel I've ever met and has a wonderful way with children...he makes them feel welcome and takes the time to answer their questions. If you're looking for a comfortable place to stay in Paris near most of the attractions and near the subway, this is the spot. We will return again!

Room Tip: The size of the rooms with two beds vary, so check before you take occupancy

A good Hotel on the Boulevard d' Saint Michel, 100 meters from the RER B Station Luxumbourgh. 2 Min walk to the famous Parc and 15 minutes to the Notre Dam or Saint Germain Neighbourhood.
The Staff was great, organising an early check in, help at organising taxi's and any other questions asked nicely answered.
The Rooms are small, but clean and very nicely decorated. All in All a Good Hotel which I can highly recommend!

We stayed for our first wedding anniversary, choosing the hotel based on its past reviews and location within Paris. Very close the station and within easy walking distance to a number of attractions, bars and restaurants near the Pantheon area.

The room and bathroom were spacious, especially for some of the hotels we looked at online. Also the inclusion of a kettle for tea and coffee was great. The hotel was clean and well presented. The staff were also friendly and helpful. Plus the welcome macaroons were very nice.

There was some road/ RER noise, however we are from London so use to traffic sounds and after the first night didn't notice it as much especially after walking around Paris all day. I can also imagine most places in Paris are simliar and definitely wouldn't put us off staying again.

I had emailed ahead to surprise my husband with champagne, however there was some confusion on the room numbers I think and another couple received our bottle. As it was a surprise and my husband was in the room I was waiting to see if it came up after our arrival then my husband wanted to head straight out anyway. The hotel apologised on our check out and we obviously didn't have to pay. No harm done and understand confusions can happen.

Overall would recommend and stay again.

We are sorry for the confusion mistake and would have been glad to prepare something special for that occasion, but it would have been easier to organize ourselves if you’d have told us ahead of time…
We do thank you for mentioning the comfort of our rooms.

We hope that you will choose the Observatoire Luxembourg for a future trip in Paris.

We picked this hotel primarily because of it's location close to the Luxembourg stop on RER B, easy access from Charles de Gaulle Airport. We found it to be a very nice lodging in it's own right. Lovely room (308), quiet location, and within walking distance of several of the cities nicest neighborhoods. The staff were really outstanding, good responses to our questions, helpful suggestions and when we mentioned we were celebrating a birthday, a bottle of champagne appeared in the room. We'll stay here again.

Hotel Observatoire Luxembourg is a delightful boutique hotel situated on the Boulevard St Michel very close to the Luxembourg Gardens. Breakfast is a delight with fresh French pastries and fruit daily and lunch/dinner easily accessible at Cafe La Luca downstairs when the weather is inclement. The hotel is within easy walking distance of the RER B Luxembourg station (literally up the stairs at Sortie 3 and across the street) and thus very easy to reach from the Charles de Gaulle or Orly airports (both on the RER B line). Alternatively a lovely stroll down the Bld St Michel leads to the centre of Paris with the Latin Quarter and Notre Dame reachable within 15 minutes. Although the hotel seems a bit pricy, the staff is extremely friendly and helpful with regards to all your needs, the service is excellent and the rooms are exquisitely decorated and not too small. I would recommend this hotel to any friend.

This hotel is only 3 stops from Gare Du Nord on the RER line and (providing you choose the right exit, it's a 50/50 chance!) only seconds from the station exit.
The staff were lovely and gave us some advice on getting around and recommended some trips for us.
The room was fairly small but had everything we needed (including a bath) and is decorated in a really quirky style, it's also immaculately clean.
The location means you can easily walk down to Notre Dame or even the catacombs if you fancy a longer stroll.
I'd definitely recommend this hotel if you are planning a Paris mini-break.
