“Absolutely smashing.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2012

My wife and I, in our 70s, stayed in this hotel for six nights in May 2012. Our double-bed room was small but with a lot of storage and excellent modern bathroom. The hotel itself is tiny, facing the narrow, elegant, interesting, rue St-Louis-en-l'Ile, itself an attraction in its own right. The hotel lobby is engaging, with a sofa, armchairs and an open fire. The staff at reception were welcoming, charming and multilingual. At our request they recommended a restaurant in the Latin Quarter for dinner which was inexpensive, excellent quality and full of locals. They helped with the airport shuttle service. But, above all, the location of this hotel is perfect. You feel you own Notre Dame and Isle de la Cite, with a broad footbridge connecting the two islands at the end of the street. The Marais, St. Paul, Bastille, St Germain and the Latin Quarter are very short strolls away. Buses and the No. 1 metro are close by across Pont Marie for trips further afield. Isle St Louis is itself a beautiful, island with ancient apartment buildings. The cafes are good, with some being excellent. The very best meal, and one of the least expensive we have ever had in Paris came from a tiny restaurant in rue St-Louis-en-l'Ile which was very hard to book and has now, very regrettably, closed down.
Hotel de Lutece gave us the most glorious Paris in the springtime experience imaginable. If and when we return to Paris we will move heaven and earth to stay there again.

My husband, 1 year old daughter and I recently traveled Paris and stayed in this hotel for 3 nights. We were very pleased with the hotel, especially the location which is very near the Marais, St. Germain, Latin Quarter and Notre Dame. Ile Saint-Louis is a beautiful and quaint island with excellent cafes and Berthillon ice cream... yum! The hotel staff was friendly and very helpful. The rooms although typical European sized were very clean and comfortable. I dream of returning to Paris one day and would love to stay again at Hotel de Lutece.

My friend and I shared a room in Lutece and we both found the room cozy and comfortable. The beds were comfortable and the staff were charming. This hotel in on Isle de st. Louis, the smaller of two islands in the Seine. The area is one of the oldest in Paris and charming. I definitely want to come back to this island hotel again. Paris is the most amazing city I have ever visited and One day did not allow enough time to explore and see everything.
Thank you everyone who works at this hotel, you were tres bon.

We stayed at this charming hotel in 2009 and enjoyed this area of Paris so much that we rented an apartment on the same street for our recent May visit which was more extended. I had difficulty ordering a taxi the night before we left for early morning the next day to get to the airport for our return home. I walked down to the Hotel de Lutece and asked for help, telling them I had stayed there before and didn't know where to turn for help. The man at the desk was exceedingly helpful and polite. He arranged a reliable car service for us for the next morning. When I asked what I could give him for his help, he replied that my smile and the smile of my daughter were his reward. He changed a stressful situation into a pleasant adventure. MERCI to the staff of the Hotel de Lutece.

This is a well-situated small hotel with a very friendly and helpful staff. Not sure I'd stay here on my first visit to Paris as it is a good bit east of some of the major attractions (Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, Champs d'Elysees), but since this was our third, we decided to stay on the island and enjoyed it immensely. It was an easy walk to the Marais and St. Germain as well as Notre Dame and the Louvre, and we used the metro for more distant sites like the Belleville Market, Musee Marmottan and Rodin Museum. We're accustomed to small rooms in Paris and this one was typically small - only minor complaint was placement of the closet right behind the door and next to bath, so we bumped into each other a lot what with three doors in close proximity. It's not five-star and at E. 210 was toward the high end for its class, but all in all a very nice stay and we'd do it again.

We were treated very well and enjoyed comfortable rooms. The staff was very helpful and allowed us to stay on after we checked out to make arrangements using their wifi. It is literally in the center of Paris, which I really love, so you can make a short walk of the Louvre, the Eiffle Tower, Notre Dame or the Latin quarter.

Room Tip: Check out Berthillon, the oldest ice cream parlour in the world.

My daughter and I returned from a six night stay in this charming hotel. We stayed for nine nights last year and we were happy to return. In addition to a great location, our room was very comfortable, inviting and very important-quiet. You can have coffee (3 euros) or breakfast (13 euros) bought up the room-a lovely way to start the day! The island is a perfect location with restaurants, shops, bakeries and supermarket all close by.

The staff, especially the very kind Arif, were very helpful and made us feel very much at home. We look forward to returning again soon.
