A delicious small hotel, with the perfect location, 1 second from Jardin Luxembourg and the wonderful, Parisian Boulevard St Michel. You can get a room with a view over a beautiful private garden, which means: peace and quiet (you actually hear the sound of water in a fountain) But I wouldn't mind a room to the street side, because who goes to a metropol and expect the countryside? I've tried staying in more quiet side-streets, but that felt more isolated to me. In this hotel you really feel all the energy and atmosphere of Paris. Left bank, naturellement. Oh, and the staff is great. A warning: the Classic room is very very small - and the door to the bathroom is like a "saloon-door": it doesn't close entirely and so you have no private life in the bathroom - unless you travel alone. Just a small thing really. Everything is clean and new. I loved it.

We stayed for a week in Junne 2013. The room, while small, was spotlessly clean and well-equipped including tea & coffee making facilities. The bed was excellent. The staff are very helpful, welcoming and speak excellent English. The breakfast is fine:fruit, cheeses, baguettes, spreads, meats and croissants - buffet-style. We had a meal in the brasserie one evening - it was well-presented, tasty and the desserts were very good.
The location right opposite the Luxembourg gardens is just great. And the RER train direct from Charles De Gaulle airport to within 15 metres of the hotel is so convenient. You can walk from here easily to a lot of the major sites including Notre Dame, the D'Orsay museum, the Pantheon etc. My only reservation, the wifi is not always a good connection in some of the rooms.Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Higher floors are quieter

Dear Mrs Koren001,

We thank you for taking the time to share your experience at the hotel Observatoire Luxembourg.

We apologize for the problems you have met with the internet connectivity. We acknowledge your discontentment and inform you that we are currently looking for another WIFI provider
.
Usually, accomodations in the Latin district are not very spacious. Consequently, we try to make up for it providing added values to the room; a confortable bedding, accessories such as a hair dryer, a kettle and a courtasy tray for instance.

Our receptionists are reknown for their warm welcome and thoughfulness and we are delighted you acknowledged it. It seems that you also relished the dishes served at our brasserie Le Luco.

We are happy and proud that you had a good stay among us and wish to see you again in the near future.

Best Regards

This pretty boutique hotel had been recommended by a business associate and it did not disappoint! Located within an easy stroll to the quintessential romantic Paris spot for spending a summer day, Luxembourg Gardens, and wihtin an easy walk to Notre Dame, it felt like staying in a "real " Paris neighborhood but with all the benefits of being close to a Metro station and attractions. Our room overlooked a pretty garden. Everything worked well from the a/c to having plenty of hot water, great water pressure, nice fixtures, linens, etc. The staff (shout out to our new friend and fellow country music buff, Abdeljabbar Mostafa!) all speak English but were also patient with my attempts to practice my French. They were extremely helpful with our stay. When we return to Paris we will definitely try to stay here again.

We stayed at the Hotel Obserrvatoire Luxembourg in early May. The staff all speak very good English and were very helpful.

The hotel is close to the RER.

The rooms are well appointed. Very comfortable bed.

Highly recommended.

The only negative about our stay here was using the Hotel's recommended shuttle service to the airport. This was not a pleasant experience. Our driver was erratic. He insisted on picking us up 3 hrs before our flight when it only took 30 mins to drive to the airport. He also showed little respect for our baggage. I would not recommend using this shuttle service.

Dear Mr and Mrs Brent E,
Your review is very important for us to improve the quality of our services and we thank you for sharing them with us.
We deeply regret you had an unfortunate experience with our shuttle service. We are sorry you felt neglected by the driver. However, may we remind you that the ride from the hotel to the airport could last between thirty minutes to an hour according to the number of hotels the driver will have to stop by. May I inform you as well that our receptionists can order you a taxi, it will cost you a little more than for the shuttle but the service will be more personalized. However, we acknowledged your comment and will take the appropriate measures.
Nevertheless, it is a joy to read that you were satisfied with your room, and the thoughtfulness of our bilingual staff.
We hope you had a nice and safe trip back to New Zealand and wish to welcome you soon.
Best Regards.

Stayed at the Observatoire Luxembourg June 2013. Overall, experience was great. Jessica was able to accomodate our request for an early check as best as possible, letting us get into our room at 11 AM after an all night flight. Emailing ahead of time is helpful.

Room Tip: Stayed in room 205. Room is small, but bathroom is decent sized for Paris standards.

This was my third business trip stay at this hotel within the last 6 months. The service continues to be stellar and the rooms are small but very nice and modern bathrooms are great. Their bedding is so comfortable; I always get a great night's sleep and location near RER cannot be beat. Highly recommend for business or leisure.

We stayed four nights in this delightful hotel near the Luxembourg Gardens. It was well appointed and very well cared for. the bistro was very good with excellent service. Mostafa and the rest of the staff were very helpful. Mostafa's cheery greeting each morning and willingness to serve his guests was well received. This hotel is close to the RER B and connects to the Metro. We would certainly stay here again!

Dear MfrOmCanada,

We appreciate the positive comments you made about the hotel Observatoire Luxembourg.

We are delighted you were fulfilled both with the hotel and the brasserie Le Luco services.

An early check-in is something we try to afford to our overseas guests because we acknowledge that the jetlag and the time difference are somewhat hard to handle.

For your next stay in Paris, please contact us directly.

We will be very happy to receive you again.

Best Regards
