Terrible hotel. Can't be more dissappointed. Not worth either the price or the quality of stay.
A hotel like this in Paris is certainly not needed. Its own rating is not valid and full of stains on the carpets.

Reviewed June 17, 2011

I booked this hotel only a few days before arriving in Paris. Being the middle of summer there was not much left in my budget range, and this looked like the best of the few that still had rooms available. I was not expecting much given the last review posted for this hotel referred to paper-thin walls, bad mattresses, no Internet, etc. But I found the hotel very quiet, the mattress comfortable, and there was free wi-fi in the lobby area. I suppose it depends a lot on what room you are allocated, what sort of guests you have in adjacent rooms, etc. My room was on the 6th floor with a small balcony overlooking the street (it's a quiet side street without much traffic) and I couldn't hear anyone above me. The wooden floor was squeaky though (common in many Paris hotels) so I would imagine that the guests in the room below me would have been able to hear me moving around the room.

The 'pros' for this hotel have been mentioned in previous reviews - the nice breakfast (better than most Paris budget hotels - a proper continental spread with good coffee), the nice location about 5-6 mins walk to either the Convention or Porte de Versailles metro stations, and many good restaurants, coffee shops and grocery stores close to the hotel (you feel more like you are living with the locals here than being in a tourist district) and the slightly larger than normal rooms for this type of Paris hotel (but still quite small by other hotel standards). And last but not least, the VERY helpful multi-lingual hotel staff who have very good knowledge of their city.

And the 'cons'? I can think of only two: 1. The hotel doesn't have air-conditioning, so in the middle of summer I would imagine it could become stifling hot. Fortunately when I was there - even though it was the middle of summer - it was not very hot, and with the window open it was a comfortable temperature. There is heating, so during the winter it should be fine. 2. The bath tub does not have a shower curtain around it, so you either stand up and the floor gets very wet, or you have to have a sit-down shower. That was a small inconvenience, but not something that would stop me going back to this hotel.

We mentioned in the Comments section of our original booking that we were taking an anniversary trip. They placed us below a big, active family that we heard running back and forth morning and night. The mattress was so old you can feel all the coils and it sags in the middle. You cannot take a stand-up shower. There is no internet, they fibbed and said "it's very busy at night." The network didn't even show up on our computer - at any time of day! On the not-too-bad side, it's 3 blocks from a Metro stop. Ok location if you know your way around Paris by train, which we do. I'm not sure the other reviewers all stayed at this Hotel Lutece!

Located in the fashionable 15th arrondissement of Paris, Hotel Lutece is ideal for anyone visiting the exhibition grounds at Porte de Versailles and for tourists alike - buses link the hotel to most of Paris' touristic areas.

Instead of the usual microscopic rooms that most of the 2-3-star-hotels in Paris generally offer (looking more like rabbit hutches than like human-size rooms), Hotel Lutece has simple, nicely decorated, spacious and bright rooms with a touch of French elegance. I liked the bathroom with genuine faience furniture, like in old palaces.

The staff is really helpful and friendly - in any case far more than the average hotelier in Paris. The only weak point is a limited internet access - it works in the lobby hall only.

Stayed here for 4 nights, small friendly hotel. If you want luxury this is not the hotel for you but as a clean comfortable base to see Paris from this is a great hotel. Although not central it is within easy walking distance of the Metro which we found reasonably priced and easy to use.
There are lots of small bars and cafes nearby and some superb restarants within easy access using the metro. We had breakfast at the hotel for 8euros per day and thoroughly enjoyed it.
I would recomend this hotel to anyone on a budget looking for somewhere clean, friendly and comfortable to stay in Paris.
