Hotel Excelsior Latin
Ranked #371 of 1,804 Hotels in Paris
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 30, 2013

Recently stayed at Hotel Excelsior Latin in a double comfort room. Our room was a little larger than most European rooms. Rooms have been recently remodeled but not the bathroom which is clean but looks a bit dated compared to the room.
Staff were very friendly & helpful. The location of the hotel is excellent. Only a short walk to Luxemborg Gardens, the Patheon & Notre Dame. The hotel is surrounded by many cafes & restaurants. Its a short stroll to the Latin Quarter & close to St Germain. .Bus stops provide easy access to Galleries Lafayette or the Louvre & it is a short walk to the RER or metro.

We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights and we were very pleased.
The hotel is beautifully furnished and the room was big and spacious (even though we were 3 in the room).
The location is perfect-in the Latin Quarter which is safe and vibrant and a just 2 minutes walk from Luxemburg metro station.
To top it all the staff was very helpful and friendly. We will defiantly stay here again.

We stayed at the hotel in September 2013. Having been to Paris before, I knew that the rooms may run small, hence we reserved a classic triple room described as 1 double bed and 1 single. My husband is 6' 3" and I figured any room to spread would be beneficial. First, the pros for the hotel:
- excellent location within a 5 min walk of RER B Luxembourg Gardens stop, around the corner from Blvd. St-Michel, and 1-2 blocks on either side to Sorbonne, Pantheon and the Luxembourg Gardens
- Interesting decor
- Friendly staff
- There's a shuttle for 18 EUR/pp to CDG. We took advantage of that on the way back.
- Vending machine with water and snacks on premises.

Cons:
- Small elevator (although rather typical for Paris)
- Strange triple room configuration - 1 bed is by the bathroom entrance. I assume people who do need the 3rd bed wouldn't find it all that enjoyable
- All 3 beds were separate for us. When I mentioned that to the front desk, they said it was ok for me to move it. That was strange. I'd expect the staff to do it.
- Beds are short. My 6'3" husband had his feet hanging off
- Walls are thin and the sounds travel. Let's say we could hear the timing of other people's bathroom visits
- The door doesn't go all the way down to the floor, so the purple neon lighting of the hallway sifts through - important for the light sleepers
- The cleaning staff uses some sort of room freshener in the hallways and in the room. We had to ask every day to skip the spraying in the room.
- The bathtub is rather tall and slippery.
- The hairdrier is one of those small attached ones. I have a short cut, but it would get overheated and stop working. I needed to approach blow-drying in 2-3 tries
- Hallways are peeling

We'll be back to Paris, but don't think it would be this hotel. For 167 EUR/night we could have gotten better room.

We loved this hotel. The room was totally renovated and clean. The staff was helpful and the location is just fantastic. Very short walk from Luxembourg RER station which takes you directly to Charles de gaulle.

Room Tip: Our room was facing the back yard, if we go again, I would try to book a room with window to the str...

Yikes - first impression not good and didn't get much better. Lobby is small & cramped, elevator is tiny & freaky, stairway & hallways are gross, disgusting carpet and wallpaper in halls, walls are dingy, dirty, marked, damaged, and very narrow. I would have left at this point had my friend not encouraged me to at least look at the room. Door into room was not very secure. Room was tiny, very, very basic, furniture was junk, gaudy decorating. Carpet hadn't been vaccuumed. Overpowering smell of air freshener. "Closet" was tiny with no door. Their monogrammed pillows were stained - thankfully we didn't sleep with those. Tiny beds. Bathroom has been renovated and was quite nice. We were just doing a quick stopover before our flight out the next day or I would not have stayed. Breakfast was a small baguette, a croissant, a packaged piece of cheese, and some jams - definitely not worth it. Room for baggage storage was never locked even though front desk assured me it would be. I do not recommend this hotel and am surprised that it gets any good reviews.

We stayed in the family room for a week and it was absolutely perfect for 2 adults and 2 children. The room was clean, the staff helpful and the location was amazing. A quick 7 minute walk to Notre Dame, a 15 minute walk to the Louvre. We spent an afternoon at Luxembourg gardens only 3 minutes away. The RER B (ORLY and CDG airports) and RER C (Versailles) are also a very short walk. There are also hundreds of great restaurants and cafes within a 10 minute radius. Would stay again! Great value.

Room Tip: The family room, which is basically 2 rooms connected by a doorway (no door), offers plenty of room...

Superb location - walking distance to a lot of restaurants, bars, sights and just a couple of minutes to the Luxembourg park with metro and RER. We had a triple room (2 people) because everything else was full, the room was a good size and bigger than most rooms I've seen in Paris. The room looked newly renovated, and has A/C, wifi, nice staff.. Our room overlooked the street and was surprisingly quiet. Will definitively stay here next time I'm in Paris!
