We stayed here for three nights in mid-October. The rooms were nicely decorated and very clean. My room had a queen-sized bed and there wasn't a lot of extra floor space for wandering around, but it was certainly adequate and comfortable. The staff at the front desk and the next door bar were very friendly and patient with our limited use of the French language. I would definitely go back!

We stayed in Observatorie as group of 25 people and for such size group hotel is little bit too small but all other aspects are more than good. We were very happy with the staff, their efficiency, with meals we had there at the restaurant, they served us good wine, desserts, coffee and it is sometimes most helpful to have this option in the center of Paris, few hotels offer this. It is small hotel and rooms for some guests not knowing Paris could be surprise, but it worked just fine, location great, wi-fi worked OK, even not that noisy despite the fact that my window was looking at the main street, St. Michel boulevard. We will for sure map this hotel and will be happy if the are available for our us.

City center and convenient location, right across street to RER station.
Room is small but has some design. Bathroom elegant.
Neighborhood feels safe even at night.
Soundproofing not so good as I can hear doors opening and closing pretty often.
Breakfast is very continental.
But overall a pleasant stay.

Stay here for one night on business. Just needed an easy hotel on the RER B line as arrived on the Eurostar and departed CDG. This property is a two second walk from the Luxembourg RER B stop right on St. Michel across from the garden. Perfect.

I stayed in a deluxe room and it was plenty spacious, wonderful bed with down pillows, nice sized bath with tub and shower, and with lots of area in the bath for personal items. Towel warmer was a nice touch. Mini fridge stocked with complementary water, coke, juice. Coffee/tea service. Only down down side was noise from St. Michel if you like open windows. The property is located on a busy corner. Otherwise no problem as the windows are double paned and high quality so blocked all noise. Good cable TV with French, English, German and Italian stations (maybe more languages).

Check in experience was very very nice. Super attentive, personable staff. Called me by name from the moment I checked in. Arrived around noon - room was understandably not ready. I had a business meeting and was travel grungy. Staff offered a room to use for clean up, which was above and beyond excepted service. WC sufficed, but appreciated the willingness to let me use a room prior to check in.

Tons of restaurants and shopping right out the door. Nice Brasserie is part of the hotel - fish of the day for lunch was fantastic. A Marche Franprix is located half block away, with a pharmacy and Credit Lyonnaise with ATM a half block further. Easy and stunning 15 minute walk to Notre Dame and Latin Quarter. Sorbonne is two blocks away. And of course there is a fairly nice park across the street - haha.

Plan to rebooked for a longer stay as this boutique hotel is priced extremely well for the location and amenities. Makes me happy to offer a positive review with no hesitation. Nice job, Hotel Observatoire Luxembourg!

I truly enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Observatoire Luxembourg. I booked the hotel online, and it was a hotel that I immediately fell in love with. I try to find places that are akin to the city that we visit, and this hotel was what I would expect a Parisian Hotel would be. I loved its style, there's a bit of quirkiness to it. Our room was very comfortable, we had street views. We stayed here for four hectic days, location is excellent close to the RER. It's an easy walk to Saint Germain and Notre Dame my favourite areas. The staff were excellent and accommodating. We had breakfast included in our rates, it was very good.

I booked this hotel after deciding which area we wanted to stay in and seeing the positive reviews on Tripadvisor, and I'm very glad I did.

This is a smallish hotel and it is clean and stylish. We had a warm reception and the receptionist took pity on my vastly inadaquate French and switched to very well spoken English, to everyone's relief.

Our room was not huge, but we didn't expect it to be, this is Paris after all. It was well appointed and stylish with very comfortable beds. My only criticism on the room would be when it comes to storage, surely it wouldn't hurt to have just one drawer in the room and a hook on the back of the bathroom door?

The shower had excellent water pressure and temperature and although the road outside was noisy, the windows were good at blocking out the noise.

Through our two night stay everyone at the hotel was charming and helpful. They provided good advice on transport and dinner and even loaned us an adaptor which was very helpful.

Two things to mention; my boss sent us a bottle of champage as a thankyou for some extensive overtime recently, this was waiting for us in the room when we arrived which was lovely. However once finished, the bottle and full ice bucket (by now full of water) was also waiting for us each time we returned to the hotel, in fact I believe we left the room at the end of the stay before it did. In a room with limited space it would have been good to have it removed. I'm sure a quick call would have had it removed as they were always helpful, but we forgot to ask!

Secondly; despite having a menu in our room there was some definite confusion about room service (one of us was struck down with a bug on the second night, forcing us to cancel our dinner reservation and stay in, nothing to do with the hotel). We were first told there was no room service, then received a call back to say there was room service but when we tried to order they didn't seem to be able to tell us what was available.

These are minor niggles, usually we wouldn't want to eat in the room and we could easily have had the champagne bucket removed if we had reminded the staff. They didn't really interfere with our enjoyment of out stay.

The location is good, the nearby park at the Palace of Luxembourg is charming and the bus stops right outside the hotel. The transport links would have been even better if it was not for the RER strike, but that was not the fault of the hotel! At least the streets felt reltively safe when walking back at night. It is a straightforward walk to Saint Germaine and the river and Notre Damn area, and the 38 bus goes straight from the Gare du Nord.

All round, I would give this hotel a solid recommendation and will be staying there again without hesitation if I find myself back in Paris.

Wonderful place!
