Lux Hotel Picpus
Ranked #571 of 1,805 Hotels in Paris
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 23, 2014

We chose the Lux Hotel Picpus for our accommodations for a brief 3 day stay in Paris. We were headed to Germany to board a cruise ship and decided to arrive in Europe (Paris) a few days early to adjust to the time difference. Our goal was a hotel that was good value, clean, and mostly had good connections to public transportation and trains to the airport. This hotel fit the bill. Located in a nice residential area near Nation Station it was very easy to reach by train from the CDG airport. We took the train with only one very easy change. We then walked the few blocks to the hotel.
The hotel itself met our needs perfectly. The room was quite small, but it was clean and quiet. The front desk was helpful. We suggest having the breakfast at the hotel unless you eat a light breakfast because there are no breakfast cafes in the area. You can always find a coffee and pastry, but if you want more, eat at the hotel.
Wifi was available to us and worked just fine.

Clean and comfortable room. Open buffet rich breakfast is 5 star! Location is good. 5min walking to Place Nation, full of nice restaurants. You can reach every attraction point with one direct metroline. Excellent value for the money paid. Don't miss!

I was back to this hotel last May 2014 with my friend and it was my 6th time staying at the hotel. We stayed for 4 nights and I still find it was excellent for B&B. The only disappointment was that I did not get my favorite room no 104. The staffs are the same person that I met the first time in 2001. The room and bath room is still clean and comfortable even it was so tiny. The way they served BF still the same the only the difference that they don't serve baguette fresh any more I was not happy. The service is still excellent and now they provide free wifi. It is a plus. I absolutely will come back when I visit Paris. Bravo

Room Tip: Room no 104 is a bit bigger for 2 persons with nice bath room with bagnoire

Spent one week here after reading many reviews of hotels in Paris. This is the best value I could find. Twin room, small bathroom, storage space for clothes, TV all in French, large window that opened, 5th floor rear, quiet, tiny elevator all for a good price in Paris dollars. Paris is very expensive. Ate breakfast at the hotel for an extra charge due to convenience. There are bakeries, a cleaning service, pharmacy, large and small groceries nearby. Ate a good priced meal (for Paris) at Marco Polo's up the street. Very near Picpus metro and 10 minutes from several metro lines at Nation station. Close to Pere Lachaise Cemetery and easy walk to historic Picpus Cemetery. Hotel is pretty far out, but in a nice neighborhood and easy metro/bus/RER transits to any tourist sites. Could store luggage after check-out. Hotel does not have AC, so might be pretty hot in mid summer. Met others there who were on a return stay due to the value and location. This is a good place for people on a budget.

Stayed here for three nights in a standard room. Room was small but very clean and towels replaced daily. Quiet neighborhood, but sometimes we could hear tram in the night. Metro stations Nation and Picpus are close to the hotel. Near the hotel, you have bakery and supermarket (fresh fruits).Staff was pleasant and helped us a lot with some advises.

I´ve been in this hotel many times before. When you are in the hotel, you have a clean, confort, and valuable place, far from crowds of tourists and noise. In this region (XIIeme arrondissemant) you find lots of good brasseries and restaurantes, and even a big departament store (Printemps, at Cours de Vincennes). The room is small (as in other hotels in Paris in the same category) but very clean. The bathroom is also small, and is the point that could be bettered, avoiding the plastic courtains. Very close to the Picpus metro station, and stiil close to Nation station, where you can catch a metro or RER to anywhere in the city with few or no connections. Breakfast generous, very recommended.

Stayed here for three nights in a standard room and enjoyed our stay. Room and en suite clean and towels replaced daily. Location is excellent in a quiet neighbourhood but not too far from the centre of paris with picpus metro less than two minutes walk away. Staff are friendly and helpful and there is free wifi. The only downside is that there is no kettle in the room and you can hear the rumble of the metro even on the 5th floor but this did not bother us.If you want a basic hotel for exploring Paris I would definitely stay here again as it is very good value for money.

Room Tip: The standard rooms only come with a shower cubicle not a bath tub.
