Hotel Elysa Luxembourg
Ranked #579 of 1,805 Hotels in Paris
Reviewed October 9, 2012

We are seniors who travelled with our 17 year old grandaughter for a month through 4 European countries and this hotel was a great ending to our trip. Good size room for 3 with great location by Metro and RER . The bonus was a lovely concert in the Luxembourg Gardens Sunday afternoon right close to the hotel. The breakfasts were lovely; Hotel staff couldn't have been more helpful..We will definitely return to this hotel.

Hotel is based next to metro and close to Paris Centre, the room was nice and clean with a lovely view on the main road. Service was great considering Paris was a mixed bag when it came to customer service. Overall a good a eperience!

We had a very comfortable room on the fourth floor, with a double bed plus the sofa made up as a bed for our son. The room was clean, as was the modern bathroom. With the sofa as a bed, the room was rather small but we have had much smaller rooms in other Parisian hotels. We couldn't get the free wifi to work, but to be fair, we didn't report this so it may have been something the front desk could have sorted out for us. Don't bother with the breakfast. We had it on Sunday, when the local bakery was shut, but it was over priced and the not to be recommended. That certainly wouldn't stop us staying here again, as there are lots of other options for breakfast. The location of the hotel is just great. If you are coming in on the Eurostar, it couldn't be easier, as you can take an RER directly to the nearest station, which is just around the corner from the hotel. The beautiful Luxembourg gardens are just a stones throw away - perfect for a picnic. Much of Paris is within easy walking distance, but we bought 3 day travel passes, which were excellent as we hopped on the metro a lot. If you want to go up the Eiffel Tower, I strongly recommend booking on-line. It is the same price and you get to skip the huge queue!

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
