Hotel Elysa Luxembourg
Ranked #661 of 1,802 Hotels in Paris
Reviewed 11 August 2014

We found this small hotel to be an excellent base for our stay in Paris. Close to Luxembourg Gardens, Pantheon, RER and metro stations. We booked a Triple room and it had ample space for the three of us. The double glazed windows were very effective and the beds were very comfortable. Close to some good restaurants and cafes. Enjoyed our stay.

This was the second time we stayed at this hotel. It's small with only about 30 rooms that have recently been re-done in a modern but attractive style. As with most Paris hotels (at all price points), the rooms aren't huge (and the elevator is tiny!) but the rooms are spotlessly clean, and despite the hotel's busy location, very quiet. The staff is helpful and the location is very convenient - it's around the corner from the RER stop (you can go directly to/from the airport) and across the street from the gorgeous Luxembourg gardens. The A/C and heat are controlled by each room's guest, and the rooms include a mini-bar, safe, international TV, and robust WiFi. At a time when it's increasingly difficult to find a well-priced hotel in Paris that is also nice and in a good location, the Elysa is a gem.

I can't comment on the breakfasts because we didn't partake, choosing instead to just have coffee at the cafe across the street.

We've now stayed at the Elysa Luxembourg twice and I'm sure we will again.

This hotel was recommended to us by friends because of its excellent location. This was so true. We got the train from the airport direct to Luxembourg station(adjacent to the Luxembourg Gardens) and walked no more than 50 metres to our hotel. PERFECT. We used the underground quite a lot and whilst you had to concentrate on what you were doing it was a fabulous way to get everywhere!!
The hotel room itself was quite small but I believe that is typical for Paris. We were on the top floor with a small balcony (nice for ambiance).
Hotel staff were pleasant but don't rely on them for too much tourist information. They did however suggest a good restaurant close by that we enjoyed.
We were very happy with the price we paid also.

Booked this hotel as we were celebrating our 25 th wedding anniversary in Paris. We wanted to stay in the Latin quarter as we'd seen good reviews of that area.We requested a quiet room and it was..rooms basic and small,we were placed on the 2nd floor at the end of a corridor so didn't have passers by making a noise.we purchased breakfast which was buffet and plentiful,with a good choice,a little expensive at €13 but the prices are the same all over Paris.Continental but also scrambled and boiled eggs,sausage but not like in England!!and tomatoes.fruit salad,yogurts,pastries and fresh crusty read and cereals ..as I said plentiful and a cosy but small restaurant too.hotel staff were helpful and obliging when we needed a taxi,they called for us. We went to the Ifel tower which cost approx €18 from the hotel.there is a great little takeaway crepe stand,round the corner from hotel.shops in walking distance with McDonald's fast good restaurant.alcohol in Paris is expensive €8 a pint and €8 med glass of wine..meals approx €20 per head at most restaurants..can get a little cheaper if you look round.the park is right across the road to hotel which is beautiful..train station Luxembourg RER station is 1 minute from hotel, we caught this right from the airport.Metros are great to hop on too which aren't far from hotel. We were very pleased with the location ..would recommend for location ..clean hotel...comfy bed,that's all you need...

I stayed at the Elysa Luxembourg overnight 19/20 July, while passing through Paris. The staff were all welcoming and helpful, including recommending a nice pub for lunch on a nearby corner.
The room was comfortable, as was the bed. The A/C worked perfectly during a hot day and evening. One of the features which might draw me back to this hotel was the proximity to the Luxembourg Gardens ( around the corner, down a short street,cross the main road), which are beautiful. The Gardens were busy with thousands of Parisians and visitors, all enjoying a beautiful summers day.
So - a very nice hotel, in a great location.

The staff at this hotel are EXTREMELY RUDE and the room cleaning maid service is seriously POOR.
We were confronted by the owner overcharging us and the maid yelling at us in French (we don't speak it) on our last day.
If you are looking for friendly and quality hotel service, I would not recommend at all.

The heart of the Latin Quarter beats just a short step away: the Luxemburg gardens, boulevard Saint-Michel, the Sorbonne, Notre-Dame and the Pantheon are all in the vicinity. Lovers of Old Paris who enjoy strolling through these streets steeped in history will appreciate the comfortable, typically Parisian setting of the Elysa-Luxembourg Hotel in the Latin Quarter. Sheltered from the bustle of the busiest thoroughfares, the Elysa-Luxembourg hotel combines the charm of a beautiful old stone building, the cosy interior of rooms decorated in contemporary style with the efficiency of modern facilities. Some of the thirty rooms offer a magnificent view over neighbouring rooftoops, the paths through the nearby Luxemburg gardens or even the Eiffel Tower. In this discretely refined setting, the atmosphere is decisively warm and the service resolutely attentive. ... more   less
