Stayed here for one night and did enjoy the location.
Centre of Paris and still fairly quiet hotel area. The lobby is small and the staff were not very sharp. Also the breakfast staff the next morning needed to be called and tables were not cleaned.
Rooms were cosy (nice word for small) and fairly clean. for a one or two nights stay ok, but would not stay longer.

Stayed: October 2013

We had a superior room, slightly larger, inbuilt cupboards, slightly larger bathroom - worth it as Paris hotel rooms are typically very small. We have stayed here before, never disappoints. Great location, near to all attractions (35 mins waking distance to all), and the major shopping locations. Choice of Metro stations around the corner and great helpful staff. Rooms have a/c, and on the back are very quite for such a prime location.

In a city with lots of small boutique hotels, this one is well situated but the rooms are small and the shower is proportionally small. In the shower an elbow can inadvertently affect water flow and there is no place to put one's shower supplies except on the shower floor. Overall the hotel was quiet, quaint and fairly clean with a small aging lobby area and a pleasant continental breakfast room.

Room Tip: Seek an upgrade to a slightly larger 6th floor room and don't expect to find top sheets on the b...

My daughter and I visited Paris for the first time last week. What an amazing trip. This was an adorable boutique hotel in a great location. Only a short walk to shopping areas, Rue Royal and the Champs E'lysees and wonderful cafe restaurants. The staff was wonderful and very helpful in giving us suggestions and directions to various restaurants. Everyone spoke English and other foreign languages. A continental breakfast was severed each morning, including fresh French pastries. Very clean and comfortable. Wi-Fi available for a modest fee. If I ever get back to Paris, I will definitely stay there again. Tres bien!

My husband and I visited Paris and had never been there before. I picked the Le Lavoisier Hotel just because it looked exactly like what we wanted and the reviews here on trip advisor were good. I couldn't be happier with our choice! The staff was extremely helpful and courteous, especially Fabian (not sure if I'm spelling her name correctly). She was there when we arrived and was so very helpful with getting us acquainted with our surroundings and how to get around. Thanks so much Fabian!
Our room was lovely. Plenty of room for the two of us. The beds were the most comfortable I've ever slept on. My husband has back problems and it made a world of difference for him. The bathroom was very nice as well.
There is no mini bar or coffee maker in the room, but you can get drinks in a room next to reception area on the honor system. We only used that a couple times since it was a bit pricey and there is a small grocery/department store just a couple buildings down.
The continental breakfast was delightful. I ordered eggs a couple of times for a small fee and they were done perfectly for my taste. Their coffee was excellent!
The location of the hotel was great. The metro is very close by and we easily got everywhere we wanted to go.
All in all, it was a great experience and I will definitely stay at the Le Lavoisier on my next trip to Paris!

We stayed for three nights as a group of 10 (5 rooms) at Le Lavoisier in mid September. When checking in there was a mistake with one of the rooms not being booked (our travel agents fault) and the staff at Le Lavoisier did everything they could to help us rectify it. The hotel itself was located in a great area and was a short walk from the metro. The rooms were decent sized and the hotel was clean and nice. The hotel staff was great and provided us with many options for food and nightlife in Paris. We fell in love with Paris and will definitely stay at Le Lavoisier on our next trip.

This is a very nice hotel in a great location near many attractions. The hotel is very clean and the room is very comfortable and is a nice size for a Paris accommodation. The front desk service is very polite and the service was way above par. You will not regret staying here. There is not a restaurant there but plenty of restaurants nearby.
