Amaizing breakfast, good location, great experience to stay at this ancient (y 1600s) building! Staff friendly. The bedroom and bathroom were clean. Access to wifi was ok. The bathroom quite small but it was what we expected. I will definitely come back! I was there January 2015

If you travel to Paris and want to have an extraordinary experience, stay at this hotel. The hotel was build in the early 1600s and has been restored while maintaining much of that period. Because of the age of the building, there are some limitations, but they don't distract from the experience. The newly installed elevator had to fit into... More

My friend and I stayed here in May of 2014 but the drop down menu does not let me choose a date that far back. If you are open to quaint, historic and less than pristine, then the Hotel du Lys is an excellent place to stay, giving a flavor of Paris and SUPERB service from management and staff. Lovely...

A few blocks from the Seine and Notre Dame, right on the border between the Latin Quarter and St. Germain des Pres, this location is hard to beat for accessibility to all the major sites in central Paris. A quirky old hotel, more on the order of a hostel, with a new (razor-thin) elevator to get your bags upstairs, and... More

Located on a narrow alley that always smelled of pesto (good thing). Small room for us (twin beds), but we were only there to sleep and change clothes. Only a short walk from RER, Metro, and the Seine near Notre Dame. Walking distance from the Louvre and Musee d'Orsay, catacombs, Pantheon, Luxemburg Gardens. Otherwise the place had its charms. Oddly... More

Lovely hotel with delightful character. Central location, but in quiet street so the bustle of Paris is kept at bay until you want it. Helpful, friendly staff. Happy to recommend, we will return on our next visit.

Can not believe a hotel would continue operating while a new lift was being installed. Nobody informed us while booking and nobody apologised for the noise while the work was being used done during the day. The view outside our room is attached.

Sorry for the works but we have to stay open if we don't want to die. After the attacks of 13 November, our customers are afraid to come to Paris. This put us in difficulty. So it is not possible for us to close the hôtel as we wanted to do. More

Great little characterful hotel in a nice central location. Good value we felt for its location. We booked the two bedroomed flat on the top floor. At the time of our visit the installation of a lift was underway, but alas it was the stairs for us. It was fun, just a bit of a puff to get to the... More

We recently stayed at Hotel du Lys while on a city break. Hotel was in a superb location in the heart of Paris and right beside the direct train from Charles de Gaulle. Unfortunately the hotel is a bit run down and needs some modernisation. Breakfast is a croissant, bread roll and coffee served on a tray. Simple but tasty.... More
