This review is long overdue. My husband and I have stayed twice at the Lux Picpus (summer 1999 and Oct. 2006) and we will be staying there again in May. We keep returning because we cannot find the same "rapport qualite-prix" anywhere else in Paris. This hotel is like a 2-star boutique hotel. It is VERY nice and yet still a value. We have had decent-sized rooms with positively large baths. Each of our rooms has had a full tub with shower attachment. We have stayed in several "budget" hotels in Paris that cost more and offered a lot less. Where else in the City of Light can you get a charming hotel facade and lobby, an elevator, a room with TV and minibar and a great bathroom AND a fantastic buffet breakfast for under $100? The breakfast @ 8 euros sure puts the bread and coffee @ 6 euros breakfasts to shame.
We still keep searching every time we go to Paris, but we have not been able to find a better, more cost effective deal. Yes, we would like to be more centrally located, and yes, the metro tremors bother us for the first hour or two in the room, but the Lux Picpus' staff is cordial, the accommodations quite comfortable, and the price is right.
