“Good location, small room”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

If you’re looking for a spacious room in a hotel with character I think Paris is not the right city. However there is so much to see & experience in this lovely city you spend little time indoors.

Our room was compact with just enough room to walk around the bed. Nicely decorated, comfortable bed & a good bathroom. We didn’t dine in the hotel as there is so much choice elsewhere. Reception staff were very friendly & helpful.

Location is good, a quiet smart area just across from the Luxembourg gardens. I’d been unsure about the nearby station being an RER rather than a Metro but we found this easy with frequent trains and easy connections to the Metro network. If you don’t want to miss anything by going underground it’s walking distance to the river & lots of interesting areas on the left bank.

Dear guest,

We would like to do thank you for the time you took to write this review.

We are glad to read that you enjoyed your stay with us. As you said, the Parisian rooms are usually small because of the architecture, we try to organize the room in order to let a maximum of space and comfort for our guests. Your satisfaction is our priority and we are glad to know that you appreciated our staff and services.

We are delighted that you enjoyed the location of our hotel within a short distance from the main monuments of Paris. The RER is as safe and simple as the metro in Paris but it also allows joining the Charles de Gaulle airport more easily than in metro.

Please do not hesitate to contact us for a future reservation.

Best regards.

Elia

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.
