“Nice hotel at an excellent location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2012

Good things:
- Like other reviewers noted, a great central location to visit many Paris attractions. It's right next to the Luxembourg station on RER B, which goes to CDG and Massy.
- Nice, comfy beds and bedding.
- Quiet (I am a light sleeper).
- Rooms and hotel are nicely decorated.
- Nice front desk staff.

Rooms and bathroom are small. But this is the same if you stay in the middle of any big cities in the world. My French co-workers love to come to America and stay in our spacious hotels and drive our spacious freeways.

Not so good:
- The safe is small. My Dell laptop doesn't fit. (I also stayed at a nearby Paris hotel, and my laptop fitted into that safe).
- The hotel is small. So all rooms are near the elevator. You will hear the elevator running. This is probably typical of hotels in central Paris.
- No drawers in desk or bedside tables (to place your little items).

Room Tip: Fifth floor. A room in the back.

Perfectly positioned in the 5th on the Boul Mich. next to the Jard Luxembourg and adjacent RER Line B station (Luxembourg). Larger size room delightful/perfect bathroom, d glazing. Service absolutely accomodating, friendly, courteous - breakfast was a genuine spread with sereval extras - OK - a bit disorganised and cramped (so be early!).

Room Tip: Rear of hotel overlooks delightful private gardens - to get a view request 3rd to 5th floor - dont w...

Great location. Warm and inviting staff. Comfortable accomodations with a delightful bistro next door and a bakery across the street. The metro is 50 feet away and the bus stop is out front. The Luxembourg Gardens are two blocks down the Boulevard and Notre Dame is 8 blocks away.

Room Tip: Deluxe is worth the minor additional charge. Back of the hotel faces a lovely garden and less traffi...

Arriving from Charles de Gaulle could not be easier with the exit from RER just 50 metres from the Hotel. Staff charming and Helpfull. Rooms on the small side but have all been renovated. Some distance from Restaurants but Buses stop outside the door.

My daughter and I spent a week in Paris, and our stay at the Hotel Observatoire was absolute perfection. The Left Bank location is central with the Jardin de Luxembourg just a block away, and walking distance to many sights including Cluny Museum, Notre Dame, Louvre, the metro. Rooms are very clean, terrific beds, modern bathrooms. I have saved the best for last -- the staff. Friendly, highly professional and competent, patient, resourceful, there are no words truly adequate to describe the quality of assistance offered to guests at this hotel. We mainly had contact with Moustafa and Nicolas, who did everything possible to make our stay a happy one. We hope to return to Paris, and will definitely stay at this hotel again.

Stayed here five nights October this year and five nights two years ago. Great little hotel. Helpful, kind, welcoming staff. Rooms newly decorated, quiet, clean, beautiful. We just love this place. Close to public transportation and walking distance to many major attractions. Luxembourg Gardens are just across the street. Will definitely stay here again the next time we are in Paris.
