Hotel Observatoire Luxembourg
Ranked #109 of 1,805 Hotels in Paris
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 August 2014

The hotel is comfortable, with plush beds, excellent showers and a wonderfully friendly and helpful staff. A mix up with a reservation for the family room was easily accommodated to our great satisfaction. The front desk was always on-hand and on top of all guests needs. There were always plenty of other people besides us stopping to ask for directions, restaurant suggestions or other such information. Perfect English and supportive smiles for our attempts at French. Never had the breakfast, too many options near by.

The hotel is an easy 15 minute walk to Notre Dame, the Latin Quarter, shopping in 6e, and several famous closed and open markets. Venturing further south gets you access to excellent bargains and food too. The convenient RER stations makes airports and train stations a fast trip and also give you easy access to the museums.

On first mapping the hotel seems a few blocks further out but Paris is a walking city and it places a broader geography of options to explore. A good and safe place to stay in Paris. Enjoy it, we did!

Room Tip: Even first floor rooms were quiet at night.

Dear truerode,

Thank you for sparing your time and share your remarks about your recent experience with us.

We were delighted to read that you had a lovely stay with us and that you particularly our location and our staff. The Front Desk is open 24/7 to answer your questions, to give you recommendations or any assistance you might need.

As you did mention, Paris is a city where you can walk. The hotel is located in a walking distance from the main touristic attractions (Notre Dame de Paris, Eiffel Tower, Louvre, Champs Elysées). If you decide to walk South, you will find the lively district of Montparnasse: this district is famous for its shops and its "crêperies".

We hope we'll have the pleasure of welcoming you soon again and advise you to contact us directly for our best offers,

Warm Regards,

Jessica

Spent five days at this fabulous boutique hotel in a great location across from Luxembourg Gardens, and walking distance (or catch the bus that comes by every 10 minutes) to many 'must see' sites. Catch the RER train from CDG airport, no transfers needed, and arrive just down the street from the hotel. Room was cozy and clean with the most comfortable beds. Bathroom was contemporary in style, exceptionally clean and had a great showerhead. Having a great cafe on site was convenient, although I wished it was open past 6 pm. Fourth floor room had a beautiful view; windows open wide for fresh air. Close the windows and you don't hear any outside noise. The hotel staff is incredible. Many, many thanks to Moustafa and Jessica for their thoughtfulness in so many respects. This will be my Paris hotel!

Room Tip: Although we had a very quiet room on the backside of the the hotel, I doubt that the street noise in...

We stayed at the hotel for 10 days and really got to know it. Jessica and Moustafa at the front desk were great! We enjoyed the hotel - both its accommodations and its great location - landmarks, shopping, the sorbonne and buses and metro to anywhere. But most of all, we enjoyed the special service and concern that we received from them. Both of them were amazing and gave us the feeling that we were at home, having all our requests fulfilled - whether touring advice, personal interest, maps, umbrellas, the newspaper, or special food requests.
We would definitely recommend the hotel to any friends or family traveling to Paris.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with walking space around the bed + room for suitcases and a large bathroom. Rooms in...

We recently stayed at Hotel Observatoire - what a lovely find. It is in a reasonably quiet area yet still very convenient.
Quick taxi ride into city. Metro station close by. Staff excellent, small rooms as is the way in Paris, but very comfortable beds. Moustafa (on the desk) is a wonderful assest to this Hotel.

Paris has thousands of great hotels to choose from and so it's always difficult to decide, where to stay. This time I'd decided I wanted to be in the Luxembourg quarter and when searching for hotels, the quirky style of this hotel jumped out at me and then I saw it was metres from the metro station with a direct line to the airport - Sold.

We booked through the hotel website in the end as that offered the better deal compared to the multitude of hotel booking sites claiming to offer the lowest cost.

On arrival the hotel staff were friendly and efficient checking us in, the room was small as expected, however for us it was perfect. It was very clean, had a kettle to make tea and coffee and we loved the funky mirrors above the bed.

As I mentioned earlier the location is great, close to the metro station, meaning easy access to the whole of Paris if you want, or you can easily spend a day or 2 just walking around the local area. The Pantheon is 5 minutes walk away, the Luxembourg gardens are opposite and Montparnasse is 15-20mins walk away too.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are quieter

Dear ES_77,

Thank you for taking time to share your impressions about your recent stay with us.

We were glad to read that you had a nice stay with us and that you found our own website to have the best offer for your stay. We do indeed offer special offers for our future guests such as buffet breakfast included or even a dinner included during your stay.

We are indeed located 5min away from the Pantheon, which is famous for hosting the tombs of some French well-known celebrities, such as Marie Curie, Mirabeau, Marat... As you did mention, the Montparnasse district, famous for its "crêperies" and its tower, is also within walking distance (15min). Our Front Desk staff will be happy to provide you with further information if needed.

We hope we'll have the pleasure of welcoming you soon again and we invite you to contact us directly for our best offers,

Warm Regards,

Jessica

We were delighted with our stay! I lived in Paris many years ago and have visited many times since. This is my new favorite place to stay! The location is wonderful and very quiet for Paris—just a short walk from some of the best places in Paris (it was also fun to stroll through the Luxembourg Gardens each day which are just across the street). The RER/Metro for the hotel (Luxembourg) was a direct stop from Charles de Gaulle airport which was extremely convenient and the access is practically across the street. Our room was quite large by Paris standards (most hotels in Paris are extremely tiny), and even included a place to put luggage, a desk/chair, a refrigerator, a large closet, two nightstands, lovely lighting and handy reading lights by each bedside. The bathrooms are modern, clean and well appointed, including bathroom slippers and heated towel racks. The thing we truly enjoyed was the amount of light and the beautiful view we had from our economy priced room (we stayed in room 404). The “flat iron” shaped building affords every room large windows--a very, very unusual treat for Paris! Even the stairway had windows. Most hotels in Paris do not have views, and if you are in an economy room, you will probably be at the back of the hotel overlooking an airshaft. We overlooked the garden across from the back of the hotel and our room was so quiet we could even hear the small fountain in the middle of the garden all throughout the day and night if we had the windows open. On the very few occasions we came back to the room in the middle of the day, we enjoyed sitting and looking out the window at our lovely view. The weather was quite warm at times and our air conditioner worked very well when needed. They have complimentary wifi (a bit slow, but we were happy to have it), and a nice café is also attached to the building which can even provide room service if needed. The elevator was small, but we were glad to have it when coming in and out with luggage. We were greeted by name each day we were at the hotel, and the staff were all extremely helpful and friendly. It was my daughter’s birthday during our stay, and they even helped me arrange for flowers and macaroons to be waiting in our room upon arrival which was very special. I would VERY DEFINITELY recommend this hotel and we plan to stay here on our next trip to Paris!
