Stayed for 5 nights with my wife. The hotel has a good location close to a metro station and a few minutes walk to Madeleine, Lafayette etc. The rooms are small but confortable, modern, nice bathroom, very clean. The staff is very friendly and helpful. There are lots of restaurants, coffe shops and a supermarket nearby. The only thing I would be glad to have is a mini bar (refrigerator) and a kettle for making coffe or tea in the room.
Good value! We are defenetly recomending it!

This is a small hotel centrally located in the 8th arridisimonte (sp?). You are near the Saint Augustine Metro, Saint Lazare Train Station, La Madeline, etc. We walked to Place de la Concorde, Arc de Triomphe, Place Vendome, Tuileries, Louvre.

The staff are extremely helpful, take an interest in you and cheerfully put up with your mangled French! A continental breakfast is served daily or brought to your room at no extra charge. The best pastry was so delicious and fresh. Best I have ever tasted! There is also an "honesty bar" (meaning help yourself and pay when you check out) on the first floor with some snacks if you choose. However, there are so many cafes, brasseries, restaurants nearby we only had one drink from the bar.

Our room was very comfortable and very clean. We felt the room was perfectly sized, especially by European standards, and it had a soaking tub! We saw some reviews saying a room over the street was noisy. We did not think so and there are large shutters you can close if you would think it is noisy.

I highly recommend this hotel if you are looking for something a little unique and quiet.

Room Tip: We had a room on the first floor over the street and found it very comfortable and quiet.

I had a great stay, the price is a good value, close to a Metro station. They charge 5 Euro for wifi, but that lasts you for your entire stay. The included breakfast is basically bread, juice and coffee with the option to add eggs for very little extra. The rooms are spacious and the bed is very comfortable.

The only disappointment I had was with the Taxi provided by the hotel. I had asked what the fare to the airport (CDG) was and they said 40-50 Euro, so I agreed on that to avoid the hassle of taking the Metro with luggage... as the Taxi arrived, the driver got of the cab, went to the receptionist and pretty much "winked winked" him before helping us with our bags. We had no traffic and ended up paying 75 Euro, they driver messed with the meter a couple of times and even added 4 Euros to the total fare... the whole thing seemed a little shady that the hotel insists on calling the cab for you and advice you to avoid any other method of transportation.

Very close the Metro and buses and being in the business district it is quieter in the evenings than in many other parts of central Paris. This is a well run hotel and small enough to get personal service. No Restaurant or Fitness centre but a very adequate breakfast in served in the lower floor. Rooms are not large but they are comfortable, pretty well appointed ( no room safes however) and very clean. To be recommended if you are seeking a moderately priced hotel and are not looking for a lot of on site faculties. There is a pretty good choice of restaurants at all price ranges within 5 to 10 minutes walk from the Hotel

Room Tip: Unless you want the view, a room on a high floor ( preferably 5 th) at the back is to be recommended...

This hotel is near St Augustine and walking distance from Champs Elysees and Madeleine. Even so the location is quiet and there is a taxi rank nearby. Staff were very good and we were particularly pleased to be able to check in early. (The checkout time is pretty relaxed too.)

the decor is pretty nice, both public areas and the room itself which was also a size that is large for Paris but maybe normal elsewhere.

Hotel Le lavoisier is located in the shopping area of Paris, we were a 5 minute walk to the Metro which is fairly easy to use. The hotel is very nice, rooms and baths are a decent size using European standards. We had breakfast included which was very nice. The staff was friendly, especially Fabiene who was very helpful with sights, restaurants and overall information. We would recommend this hotel for a Paris visit.
