Hotel Elysa Luxembourg
Ranked #836 of 1,804 Hotels in Paris
Reviewed August 10, 2012

Placed right across the Luxembourg gardens with a metro station in the corner and a bus station right next to the entrance; Hotel Elysa is great for quick off-season trip to Paris where you can find better prices.

Although a bit smallish and with that old tone, the great advantage is location and quiality of sleep. You can easily walk to all important sites and stop at Saint German or the Latin quarters for dinner on your way back. So if you are searching for a well-placed hotel in Paris off-season, this is a great one!

My family and I spent six nights (26/07/12 to 01/08/12) at the Hotel Elisa-Luxembourg. It was a great stay. It is small (family run) and simple, but very well maintained. The rooms and bathrooms are nice and very clean. The staff is very attentive and helpful, highlight the attention paid by the owner, and especially of mister Carlos. They speak English and Spanish. The location is very good. One block from the beautiful Luxembourg Gardens, very near a metro station, a cafe next door and in front of a small market. I Recommend.
An alert (the hotel has nothing to do with it) when you ask for the hotel call a taxi, you should know that, in Paris, the driver begins to charge from the moment he received the call and not when he arrive at Hotel.

My family and I stayed at the Hotel Elysa Luxembourg for 13 nights and had a very pleasant stay; the location was perfect, quiet street, the staff was wonderful, very helpful and spoke English, and we were close to buses and metro, rooms were very clean, our beds were very comfortable, pillows were perfect, flat screen was nice, free Wifi was great (bring your IPads if u have one and a European converter plug) coffee maker in room wonderful, mini-bar was convenient. There were many restaurants close by, all very good. The breakfast downstairs in the hotel was convenient and an easy way to start your day; it included croissants, cereals, milk, fruit, coffee, juices, yogurts, eggs and sausages. The price is 12.50 euros per person, which was fair because you could eat as much as you wanted.
Only downside to the hotel was there was construction going on at a restaurant nearby and we heard some construction work, but it didn't start till 10:30 am so most folks were up and out of their rooms by then. Bring earplugs if you want to sleep in late, though. Elevator very tiny (fits 2 people) but we had no issues; just had to be patient with the lift when others were using it. It's a good value to stay at this hotel. I would stay there again next time my family and I go to Paris, which I hope is soon:)

The Elysa Luxembourg is a very nice hotel in a very convenient location in Paris. The metro is only a couple of minutes walk away with direct access to CDG Airport. It is about a 20 minute walk down Boulevard Saint Michel to the river and Notre Dame but only one stop on the metro. The Hotel was small, the room was clean and comfortable. The staff were helpful. Good value for money and we would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: Room on 6th floor, back of hotel had nice view of Eiffel Tower, from balcony

Having stayed in Paris several times and stated in some really grotty overpriced places we were very impressed with this mid priced hotel for its location, comfort and staff service. We came for Bastille weekend and it was perfect for getting to where the action was.
Next to the jardins de Luxembourg and within walking distance of both the RER station and the Notre Dame, we were able to explore the city easily either on foot or by metro. Several restaurants and cafes nearby qhich were great as we felt hotel breakfast was a bit too expensive . Very comfy bed and clean bathroom with a great shower !
The room was small ( but they usually are in Paris) . This was on quite a busy road so be aware if you are a light sleeper although once you closed the windows and shutters we could hardly hear. A special mention must go to Fabio on reception who was more than helpful and informative , as well as patient !

We had a quick overnight at the Elysa Luxembourg and loved the charm of our 5th floor rooms - nice way to end a 3 week trip. Good location, very clean rooms and bathrooms, lots to see in the immediate area and just around the corner from the Metro and Luxembourg gardens too. Would return for another short stay for sure - one night wasn't really enough for this area. Very nice breakfast too. We got a great rate using booking.com and took 2 rooms for our family; worked out very well.

Room Tip: upper floors have nice balconies! Room 504 had windows on both sides of the building.

Really enjoyed our stay. Everything was so handy from eating places to the Metro. and from shopping on Rue St Michel to visiting tourist attractions. Ideal spot for a holiday stopover.

Room Tip: Lower rooms get the free Wifi easier. Upper levels get the sun on their balconies.
