In our visit to Paris we wanted to stay somewhere that was centrally located, reasonably priced and had good connectivity to Paris metro. This hotel met all these criteria. Our room with a view of the street was decent size and quite charming. We were traveling with a baby and were able to fit her crib and two oversized bags in that small room. The breakfast buffet didn't have a lot of variety but was quite nice. Wifi speeds were poor in the room, although they were better in the lobby. The hotel staff was very helpful, they knew all the bus and metro routes. We also enjoyed walking on the nearby streets like Boulevard Saint-Michel and Boulevard Saint-Germain. Pantheon and Luxembourg Gardens were the nearby attractions.

We stayed in this hotel over the Easter weekend in Paris. It is entirely charming. Yes, the room is a little small , as in all hotels in Paris, but big, comfortable bed, fantastic shower and lovely charming view of the gardens of the institute for the deaf.
The staff were friendly and accommodating, the breakfast good and the location perfect. The hotel is right by the sit to Luxembourg RER and so immediately accessible from airport and Gare du Nord but also on the 38 bus route to Gare du Nord. Great for walking to the Latin quarter and Notre Dame.

Great hotel - we went on the basis of reading many reviews and were very impressed with the hotel. From our arrival, we were greeted and welcomed with a bottle of Champagne as they asked if it was a special occasion (my wife's birthday). Room was cosy... A little small but very comfortable and clean. The staff were great and very good at looking after us. Would definitely go back to this hotel and most definitely recommend to friends an family.

Mustapha and the team came up trumps again - superb service and the aircon was on great form (cool is better!). If you are a left bank person this cannot be bettered as a location for roaming around Les Jardins getting anywhere via bus RR metro

Room Tip: Bigger rooms in the front - slightly quieter rooms overlooking the beautiful garden to the rear!

We really enjoyed our 4 nights stay in this place. The staff was always friendly and helpful. The location is great, with the RER station around the corner and notre dame within a 10 min walk. Breakfast was good. I definitely recommend this hotel.

we stayed one night at the Hotel Observatoire on a layover in Paris; we chose it in part for its location near the RER (we had to head to the airport the next morning) and for its good reviews. the hotel is very convenient to public transportation, and the Luxembourg gardens are just across the street. the lobby and rooms are nicely appointed and well decorated (though the pillows with the big eyes on them can be a little unsettling). our room overlooked blvd. St. Michel and, as such, was a bit noisy if you opened the windows. room size is small - but I've come to expect this, especially in this part of Paris. the bathroom was quite large however, and very modern with a nice bathtub/shower. our room did have a bit of a musty smell so we opened the windows to let in some fresh air (and street noise). breakfast was nice - a typical continental breakfast, with nothing outstanding for offer, but it was all fresh. if you are looking in this area, or want a hotel with convenient location to public transport in a neighborhood that is not so overridden with tourists, the Hotel Observatoire is a fine choice.

Room Tip: be aware that rooms overlooking the blvd St. Michel are more susceptible to noise.

Dear Supermensch,

Thank you for taking time to share your impressions about your recent stay in our establishment.

We were delighted to read that you enjoyed your stay with us and that you mainly chose us for our location. We have completely refurbished our hotel two years ago, opting for a Fornasetti-inspired decoration. As you did mention, our Buffet Breakfast is made of fresh products (pastries, orange juice and fruit salad mainly) and our Brasserie is also happy to welcome our guests who look for a lighter breakfast option than buffet.

We hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you soon again and invite you to contact us directly to benefit from our best offers,

Warm regards,

Jessica

We came here quite early and Moustafa from the reception was kind enough to give us our room much before the formal check-in time. The people in the reception were always helpful, friendly and attentive. The location is great, just outside the Luxembourg gardens and on the path of the airport train. We shall definetly reccommend this hotel to our friends.
