“Easy access to CDG by RER”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2013

We picked this hotel primarily because of it's location close to the Luxembourg stop on RER B, easy access from Charles de Gaulle Airport. We found it to be a very nice lodging in it's own right. Lovely room (308), quiet location, and within walking distance of several of the cities nicest neighborhoods. The staff were really outstanding, good responses to our questions, helpful suggestions and when we mentioned we were celebrating a birthday, a bottle of champagne appeared in the room. We'll stay here again.

Hotel Observatoire Luxembourg is a delightful boutique hotel situated on the Boulevard St Michel very close to the Luxembourg Gardens. Breakfast is a delight with fresh French pastries and fruit daily and lunch/dinner easily accessible at Cafe La Luca downstairs when the weather is inclement. The hotel is within easy walking distance of the RER B Luxembourg station (literally up the stairs at Sortie 3 and across the street) and thus very easy to reach from the Charles de Gaulle or Orly airports (both on the RER B line). Alternatively a lovely stroll down the Bld St Michel leads to the centre of Paris with the Latin Quarter and Notre Dame reachable within 15 minutes. Although the hotel seems a bit pricy, the staff is extremely friendly and helpful with regards to all your needs, the service is excellent and the rooms are exquisitely decorated and not too small. I would recommend this hotel to any friend.

This hotel is only 3 stops from Gare Du Nord on the RER line and (providing you choose the right exit, it's a 50/50 chance!) only seconds from the station exit.
The staff were lovely and gave us some advice on getting around and recommended some trips for us.
The room was fairly small but had everything we needed (including a bath) and is decorated in a really quirky style, it's also immaculately clean.
The location means you can easily walk down to Notre Dame or even the catacombs if you fancy a longer stroll.
I'd definitely recommend this hotel if you are planning a Paris mini-break.

My wife and I stayed 4 nights in a deluxe room @ this lovely hotel just near the beautiful Jardin de Luxembourg. All the staff of the hotel are very friendly, helpful & professional. They all speak fluent English. Our nicely decorated room was very clean with a good comforable bed and linen and furthermore we liked the kettle to have a cup of tea in the evening (a kettle is hard to find in other hotels in Paris). Because our room was facing the back of the hotel (with views over a beautiful garden) it was quiet during the nights. The breakfast in the cosy bistro was very good. Overall an excellent choice of hotel if you plan to visit Paris. We recommend an early booking because the Hotel seems to be very popular (even now in the low season).

Just back from a 3 night stay at the Observatoire and have to say that the location is just super, from the airport (CDG) it only took 45 mins door to door for 9 euro single, once you get out of the train stop the hotel is just straight in front of you. We were able to walk to most tourist spots with 20/25 mins down a nice safe neighhood.
Yes the rooms are small but it is in the middle of Paris so something has to give. In fairness to the hotels we did not feel to jammed in because everything was in the right place, just not much floor space but enough room to move around ok and the bed was really comfy, 3 great nights sleep, a little noise from outside but not to bad to stop us sleeping well each night.
The bathrooms were great, lovely and clean, a real newness to them, we even had a bath which was lovely after a day's wakling around the sights.
The staff, only had dealings with them at reception, they were very freindly and helpful and their english was prefect, better than my french anyway.
We only ate in the cafe once, just because we were on the go alot, the food was good and service fice also.
No problem telling anyone to stay here, for the price i was happy and would go back again. And have a walk in the gardens across the road, at this time of year it was very full of colour.

We received a very warm welcome at the hotel, and Jessica and Moustafa could not have been more courteous and helpful whether it was helping with local dinner reservations, a 4:15 am airport shuttle, or any other question or request. The location of the hotel is extremely convenient to the metro, and it's great to be so close to the beautiful Jardin du Luxembourg. Our room was very comfortable and clean. The bathroom was a bit odd, but we could overlook that given all the other positives.
