Is Hotel Muguet a romantic hotel for a honeymoon?

My fiance and I will be visiting Paris for the first time for our honeymoon this October. I have used the search function to find lovely hotels in Paris that are reasonably priced, but could not find much information regarding whether Hotel Muguet is a good choice for a honeymoon hotel. Can anyone shed any light on this?

Also, is it close to the metro? We understand that it is located in a residential area, which we don't mind so much as long as we can quickly hop on a metro to see other sites.

Thank you in advance. :)

It's romantic enough - as you can see by the photos on their website.

We've stayed there three times. It's a very nice hotel, and a good value for Paris, run quite efficiently by the owner Mme Pelletier. It's also totally non-smoking.

Hotel Muguet is a short walk from Ecole Militaire metro station in one direction or LaTour/Maubourg in the other. There are wonderful cafes in the area of both those stations for starting/ending your day.

The 7th happens to be our favorite neighborhood for sleeping. It's chock full of all sorts of wonderful restaurants and those quintessential streets lined with shops, etc.

Many profess the 7th to be "too quiet", but that's what we like about it. And, it's far from "dead" - there's plenty of nightlife.

We stayed at the Muguet in the summer of 2007 and loved it. We were on the 6th floor with an incredible view of the Eiffel Tower. My mother had a room across from us with a great view of Invalides. I could not believe our view...truly amazing!

There are 2 metro stops very close by. The street is quiet, but there is so much all around, and you are about a 5 minute walk to the Rue Cler, Invalides, and the Eiffel Tower. So sort of the best of both worlds.

During that same trip, we later stayed over in the 1st at the Hotel Britannique which was beautiful, in case you are interested in that at all. More luxurious than the Muguet, but no view. Loved it though!

I have stayed there twice and agree with the other posters. Room pictures on its website and those posted by "TripAdvisors" are pretty realistic.

What do you consider romantic? Indulgent service? Chocolates on the pillow at night with turn down service? Then no--Hotel Muguet isn't it. But I don't think you will find any romantic hotel in its price range that would meet those requirements.

It has a great location. Close to the two metro stops. Good bus service. Walking distance to the Eiffel Tower, Invalides, and Rodin Museum. Short hop on the subway to most anywhere else. Reasonably priced cafes and upscale restaurants near by. While it is in a "residential area," it is New York City residential, not US suburbia residential.

Have a wonderful stay in Paris--a favorite.

I stayed there in November of 2007. Loved the hotel and the staff were very helpful and I don't speak any French. Lovely neighborhood and nice access to restaurants. We did not eat breakfast at the hotel, we walked to the Rue Cler every morning. Not sure about the romantic part. It is very functional and nicely remodeled, however the rooms are small by American standards, but very clean. I hope this helps.

I have stayd there twice. If I was going on a honeymoon, I would enjoy the Muguet very much.

We did request a room with a view- - - - paid a bit more for it, but having once had the view and once not having the view, I would say, "ask for the room with the view". I know that rooms 41, 51, and 61

view the Eifel Tower. (there is no room service, but there is an elevator, and I have eaten the breakfast there- - - - omlets made to order + croisant, juice, yogurt, coffee. Lovely bathrooms in room 41 or 51.

Room without a view had a small/clean/adequate shower/WC. But, the rooms with a view were nicer.

It is also not far to walk to a cafe for breakfast. We loved the Pasco Restaurant, just a block away. There are several other very delicious

restaurants nearby. Very easy walk to the Seine River. My husband and I walked across one bridge, then walked thru a park on the right bank and returned using a different bridge, and we were then

right in front of the Invalides, then the Rodin sculpture garden was in back of the Invalides, and

very beautiful.

The Metro subway takes you to Place Concord for a walk on Chanps Elysee (only about 2 or 3 stops away)
