“Good value and convenient”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2013

The hotel is well located to Gare Austerlitz station and the Metro. The hotel itself has a small entrance that can easily be missed. The signage says Jardin des Plantes, not Libertel, and there is a row of bistros to the right of the hotel (including McDonalds), all with glass extensions at the front, the the hotel entrance is slightly recessed. The hotel has a small reception area, with maps and lots of brochures and newspapers. On check in, I was repeatedly and agressively told to 'just sign it", when I tried to read a disclaimer form that I was given that waives hotel responsibility for any theft. I asked if the hotel has a problem with theft and got no response. I was given a room on the third floor and then discovered that the elevator button for level 3 was covered in tape and not working. It was fixed 3 days later. The elevator comes out on the landings between each floor, so there are always some stairs to get to each floor. The room was small (room 311) and the shower leaves water on the floor. The room was nice and dark at night, but was a little bit noisy. It was easy to hear noise from the hallway and the next room. The room had free wifi. I think that its just for 4 hours of wifi, but it was enough for me. To the left of the hotel is a bookshop and a small supermarket that is open late (except Sunday), and further left is a nice bakery with good prices. There is a postoffice across the road with ATM machines both inside and outside. The hotel has a small luggage room on the lower floor. You go down one floor, push a button by the door and the receptionist activates the door and you put your bags in and out yourself. There is a security camera above the luggage room door that the reception uses to see who is coming in and out. This may not suit people with Laptop bags. The price was good compared to a lot of other hotels in Paris. The location is not as upmarket as other areas, but it was very handy to use the Metro and RER train line C that goes to lots of good spots such as the Eiffel Tower and Versailles, and very convenient to be able to grab drinks and snacks before heading out each day and when returning at night.

The entrance and the reception are quite disappointing with regard to the quality of the rooms. These have been obviously renovated very recently and everything is functioning. The rooms are on the tiny side, but the beds are comfortable. The amenities are as expected for this class of hotels. Free WiFi connection of excellent quality. On the positive side: The location, in the immediate vicinity of the Austerlitz railroad station and the Jardin de Plantes. On the negative side: The location on a very busy street and opposite to a viaduct section of Metro line 5, with considerable noise. Quite neutral attitude of the reception staff.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the back side for more quieteness

Dear Konstantin F,

Thank you for your post on Tripadvisor.

Please accept our apologies for the inconvenience that you suffered. 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 and are newly renovated.
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,

Positive: Good location, easy Metro, nice area, clean room, friendly staff.

Negative: We booked the dearest 'Club' room but got a cheaper 'Privlidge' room, (which is still better than an ordinary room). Upon enquiry we were told it was a Club room with the wrong label. The question I didn't ask (language/ exhaustion) was: what do you get when you book a 'Privlidge' room?

Room Tip: Get a room at the back away from the road / train station

Dear OneHillwalker,

We are sorry if the answer was not very complete but you've got a Club room which means that you had more advantages than the Privilege room like the facilities for exemple.

Actually, all our 5th floor rooms are Club rooms with the previous label Privilege.
We have taken account about your comment and we are going to change the labels.

However, we are glad to see how much you enjoyed your stay and the surroundings of the hotel.

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

The rooms are very small. If the room face the road it can be noisy but we were so tired and it didn't affect us all. the location is good. you can go anywhere by metro from the gare d'austerlitz which is located accross the street. the bathroom was clean but i can't say the same for the bed. there were some big red spots on the blanket. If you would just sleep then it is ok to stay here but if you look some more luxury or comfort this is definitely not the place. when you consider the price and value ratio. you can find some better place to stay for the same price.

Room Tip: Choose the biggest room.

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.

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.
