“Enjoyable return visit to Latin Quarter gem”
Reviewed 19 April 2014

It's a pleasure to review Hotel du Levant, which I visited for the fourth time in early April. Small and stylish, the hotel ticks four boxes: location, hospitality, comfort and value-for-money.

There are three aspects to the location appeal. First, you're at the heart of the Latin Quarter, so delights such as Notre Dame Cathedral, Sainte-Chapelle, le Jardin du Luxembourg and La Sorbonne are just a few minutes' walk away. Second, the nearby metro station (Notre Dame-St Michel) provides quick transport to other locations (e.g. l'Opéra Garnier, Jardin des Plantes, and Chateau de Vincennes, to name three attractions I visited). Third, the many restaurants and bistros around the hotel provide a village atmosphere, full of joy, conviviality and laughter.

First-time visitors to Paris are likely to consider the bedrooms small, but this is characteristic of the French capital. My single-confort room in Levant was more spacious than in other Paris hotels I've used, which is not to say it was big: the luggage rack, for instance, was too short for my suitcase. (The receptionist noted my comment and thanked me for the feedback.) Also, the walls were pretty thin, but the neighboring rooms didn't create too much noise. The room was spotlessly clean, as was the entire hotel - congratulations to the house-keeping staff. Breakfast was good, though less comprehensive than in other European cities, and the breakfast room was a bit too hot.

Here are two suggestions. 1. Why not add CNN and BBC World news channels to the menu of all-French television programmes? 2. Perhaps one computer could be provided in the lounge area for guests who wish to consult the internet without the bother of packing a laptop or other device?

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the courtyard are quieter

Dear Sir or Madam,

Thank you for your nice review.

We are happy to hear you are a regular guest to our hotel .

Just like many of our guests , you liked our location . As you say , it is a very convenient place to be as you can get straight and easy access to tourist sites such as Notre Dame , the Louvre Musem, the Orsay Museum, the Pompidou Centre within walking distance ,but also the Luxembourg garden or the Sorbonne.

There is indeed a wide choice of restaurants in our area as well , and a few grocery stores and supermarkets as an alternative .

In our hotel, every room is different not only regarding the size of the room but also the decoration .

Most of people tend to think our rooms are small but our priority is to make sure they are clean functional and comfortable for our guests.

We are happy you enjoyed our continental breakfast buffet , as some people expect a cooked English breakfast style.

As for the channels in English , we do have CNN and BBC available .Please feel free to ask Reception whatever you need to know .

We will ask our manager about the computer area.

Hoping to see you again some other time if you plan another trip to Paris.

Best regards.

I have stayed twice before at Hotel du Levant and this time rented 2 rooms- 1 for me and 1 for my daughter.We often have different schedules, so this worked well.Restaurants everywhere and very close to many sites. There are many great concerts at the churches in the area as well. Also a nice change from the sameness of chain hotels.

My wife and are finishing day 6 of a 7 day family vacation and could not be happier with this hotel. Clean, friendly staff, & a great location.

Most Paris restaurants in this price range do not include breakfast, but this hotel has an excellent and substantial continental breakfast that also includes do-it-yourself soft boiled eggs and great cheeses and ham.

The hotel is just a block from a Metro station and very clear to Notre Dame. A number of popular and reasonably priced restaurants are right nearby, so you feel you are close to the action.

I would highly recommend this hotel.

We are happy you enjoyed our breakfast buffet , as you point out , we leave it up to the guests to choose how they want to cook their eggs.

We made every effort to change our breakfast room decoration, and brought changes to offer good quality items as well.

We will be pleased to see you again as soon as you can .

The location of the hotel is excellent, near the RER, Metro station, a lot of restaurant near-by. Walk-distance to several attractions, i.e. Notre Dame. The room is small, but it's worth with the price. Most of the time, the internet was working ok.

This hotel is right in the heart of the Latin Quarter, with everything within easy walking distance. This hotel is located off one of those little side streets between two bigger streets, which means that road noise is not a problem. The lobby was very nice, the staff incredibly helpful, and the room was clean and served it's purpose - let's face it, rooms in Paris are small, but it's not like you will be spending the days in your hotel room. The bed was comfortable, and the climate control was perfect for me. I will definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: you have your choice of rooms facing an interior "passage", or facing the street. If any k...

Dear Madam,

Thank you very much for your nice review about our hotel .

You are right to mention our location first, as this is what most of our guests prefer .

As you say, one can find all tourist attractions, but also supermarkets and restaurants within walking distance .It is true that being ocated in a side street ,far from the Main Street ( Boulevard St Michel , or Boulevard St Germain) keeps you away from the noisy traffic.

Regarding accomodation, most of our guests tend to think our rooms are rather small , but we concentrate all our efforts to make them comfortable , fucntional and clean .

We will be happy to see you again if you plan another trip to Paris

Best regards.

I stayed at the Hotel Du Levant to sightsee Paris and also to run the Paris Marathon and I found that this hotel was ideal for both. It's located close to St Michel Metro which can easily get you to all the attractions quickly and is walking distance to Notre Dame. The rooms are clean and tidy and the service here is fantastic. You do not need to look any further, take my word for it, it is perfect if you want to see all that Paris has to offer. I stayed for 3 nights and although it is located close to lots of cafés and restaurants it was amazingly quiet within the hotel. Breakfast is good and adequate for myself but those wanting a cooked English will be disappointed as it's continental only. I give this hotel 5 stars.
