“Average place to sleep”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2013

The rooms are small, dark, and a tad loud if they face the road. However, the bed is comfortable, it's in a fairly convenient location, and it has all the basic amenities. For someone that wants/has to spend time in Paris, this is perfectly acceptable. If you want to actually use your hotel room for more than sleeping, you want somewhere else, but I was happy enough.

Room Tip: Not facing the road.

Dear tripleplay97,

Thank you for your post on Tripadvisor.
We love to hear how much you enjoyed your stay and the surroundings of the hotel.

Our hotel is located in the heart of Paris, we're sorry that it did not meet your requirements in terms of peace. In order to satisfy our customers up to our rooms have double glazing.

We paid particular attention to the sound insulation (double glazing, seal, etc.). However, we are aware that for those very sensitive to noise, some nights might be a nuisance.

We look forward welcoming you again soon to the Hotel libertel Austerlitz - Jardin des plantes and do remain at your disposal.

Yours sincerely,

M. Pierre BURIGNAT

Stayed here 22 Feb - 25 Feb. We booked a privelage room which was very clean and modern. the rooms are small and there is not much in the way of storage, however, we wern't there to stay in the room we wanted to see Paris, which is what we did. Good place to stay close to shop, bistro eatery and metro/RER. If you want a base from which to go sight seeing then this is excellent. We did eat breakfast at the hotel which was the same each day, it was perfectly adequate to set you up for the day. We would stay here again. just beware when travelling about on the metro as someone did try and pickpocket me, but fortunately did not manage to get anything. The hotel staff did warn me of this which was good of them. Overall a good hotel.

Room Tip: Get a privelage room if possible as these are slightly bigger

Quite a small but well decorated and clean en suit room. Suitable for our week in Paris. The hotel is quite a walk, a good 20 mins, to Notre Dame, but the Metro is outside the door. As we like walking the location was no problem.
It was a good price, without breakfast which would have been very expensive, in comparison with other places we looked at. The hotel also had tea and coffee in the room, which is not that common in France.
The Japanese restaurant just outside served a selection of Sushi at a reasonable price.

A good clean and comfortable hotel. Rooms at the front get noise from the road and the railway. We found it adequate for a good sleep and then a marvellous wander in the Garden of Plants. Handy to Rue Mouffetard and all the good restaurants there.

I spent only a night at this hotel last month (ie, Dec. 2012), and this was my first visit to Paris. As a non-tourist (had a few business meetings in the city), I found the hotel to be alright. The hotel met my basic requirements:
- Clean room, bed, and washroom
- Located not very far from the office/business areas
- and FREE wi-fi in the room (not just the lobby), which was a boon!

Although I did not use public transport during my stay in Paris, i could make out that the hotel is close to a metro train station. Not too far from some of the touristy spots either.

Coming to the rooms, some people have complained about the room size, but I was actually okay with it. And while my room faced the street, and I could see the elevated metro train tracks (and trains running on them), it wasn't too noisy either. I slept quite soundly :)

They do not have a full-fledged restaurant though, and the breakfast (served in a smallish hall, with just bread, boiled eggs, etc) is very basic. You will be better off having breakfast at one of the nearby eateries. They run a very lean operation (I noticed only 2-3 employees during my stay) and that is visible in places like the breakfast hall. The chap who was at the reception desk during my stay was a wonderful guy, a French of African origin - very polite and helpful.

One point: In case you have heavy luggage or troubled knees, you may want to note that the design of the hotel is such that the lifts stop BETWEEN floors, with a short flight of stairs going upwards & downwards to corridors with rooms.

On an overall basis, a decent place to spend the night if the idea is to spend most of your waking hours outdoors.

Room Tip: Avoid having breakfast at the hotel, unless you are a very light & non-fussy eater. And by non-f...

Well situated -near Metro and RER. Rooms are rather small - even the so called Priviledge rooms are tight for space. Staff friendly and rooms clean however. Several good local brasseries (restaurants) within a few meters.

By the way there are NO firework or city celebrations at new year - it was all rather a damp squid. Queues of people everywhere for all the major attractions - wrap up warm.

Room Tip: Go for the privledge rooms as it is marginally larger than the comfort rooms! Don't expect to be...
