My family stayed for 10 days at the Hotel de Buci during the second week of June. After extensive online research I picked this hotel because it was small, the reviews were so positive and also because its location sounded perfect for our trip. My husband and I stayed in Room 21, a really lovely and surprisingly spacious room facing the street. I was amazed that once you closed the windows the sounds of the street practically disappeared. I also thought that the automatic shades which you managed from the bed were really cool. Believe me, they totally cut out the light from outside. The cleaning staff were friendly and very accomodating.
Our 3 sons (26, 24, and 20) traveled with us and were given the Lafayette suite on the top floor. This room did not have the beautiful ambiance that our room had, but it was perfect for our guys since it contained a king size bed in the larger room and a murphy bed in the smaller front room. The elevator was small, but very fast.
The location truly was perfect. The street was charming. There were several cafes within the first block as well as a wonderful gelato place and lots of crepe places and restaurants. Cafe de Flore and other famous cafes were just around the corner. The metro was 3 blocks away. Our boys loved being able to go out at night to bars, cafes, etc. I felt better knowing that they would stay within a short distance of the hotel. They even found the steps form "Midnight in Paris" one night.
We walked EVERYWHERE. Really, from this hotel we walked all the way up to the Arc de Triomphe. The boys walked home from Sacre Coeur!! These were long walks, mind you, but doable.
The staff were just great. They responded to my emails promptly and were very accomodating. They worked with us to make dinner reservations,taxi pickups, etc. One thing to note, you can purchase the museum passes from the hotel. I had no idea and was just lucky to have asked about them.
The breakfast buffet was wonderful. Eggs, bacon, sausage, potatos, fruit, cheese, yogurt, cereals, mini crepes, breads, you get the picture, and all of the delicious hot chocolate and coffee you can drink. The waiter was terrific. He was always so friendly and attentive. I actually looked forward to seeing him every morning. Our breakfast was included (maybe this is standard?). Given that there were 5 of us, this saved us at least $125 per day.
I could just go on forever. Needless to say, I will stay here next time I go to Paris.
