“shop for children's clothing and stay in this sweet boutique”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

If you have kids or grandkids at home, stay in this wonderful little boutique and shop Rue Vavin, famous for it's many children's clothing stores. The friendly staff will recommend wonderful places to eat for lunch and dinner, and will provide you will a marvelous breakfast. The staff is friendly, the rooms are clean and cool and quiet. Great art is painted directly on the walls even in the elevator shaft which you can see through glass on your way to your room. sculpture in the public spaces. Loved it!

Room Tip: I enjoyed my "club" room, but I imagine all are good.

Dear Madam,

Thank you for your comment on our hotel !
We are very pleased to see that you enjoyed the location of the hotel, with all the shops dedicated to children on rue Vavin, and the personal service of our staff. Indeed, we place the highest value on the quality of service that can be provided at the hotel, so that you feel completely at ease in our hotel.
One of the special features of the Hôtel des Académies et des Arts is also that we are an hotel specifically dedicated to the arts ! The paintings on the wall that you noticed are the work of Jérôme Mesnager, and we owe to Sophie de Watrigant the sculptures you can find at the reception and in the staircase.

All of our team hopes to see you again for your next stay in Paris !
Kind regards,

Charlotte et Laurent Inchauspé

Dear guests,

Many thanks for your responsiveness and your comment on the hotel !
We are glad to know that you enjoyed the atmosphere and the personal service of our staff. Indeed, we place the highest value on the quality of service that can be provided at the hotel, so that you feel completely at ease in our hotel.
The hotel is located only a few minutes away from the Luxembourg garden, in a very charming area of Paris. Thus, it is really close-by to the numerous monuments of Paris, without suffering from the inconvenience of staying in a touristic street of Paris, so it is not exactly in the center. It is also because we are located in a small and typical Parisian street that the rooms often seem tiny, but they actually are on the larger side for a boutique hotelon the left bank.
All of our team hopes to see you again for your next stay in Paris !

Kind regards,

Charlotte et Laurent Inchauspé

Now this is bijou boutique bliss. It's a small hotel with only 4 rooms on each floor and 5 floors and each rooms is small but it has it all.
location isgood althought not being overfamiliar with Paris I do think location Is a very Important factor and the location of this hotel for a general tourist was just a 3 out of 5 location but is right next door to a metro station and is v well serviced by restaurants of a good quality.
It's quite quirky in design but cosy and if you are going to be out doing all the things that Paris can offer then this is a great base.
We took the recommendation mrandmrssmith.com and I agree with their overall positive reviews of this lovely little find.

We recently spent a weekend here and would highly recommend it. Our trip was to celebrate a birthday and the hotel was perfect - romantic and cosy and in a great location for wandering and exploring. As others have mentioned, the rooms are compact but well fitted out, beautiful decor and the bed was super comfortable. Our package included breakfast - which was very good - and we were pleasantly surprised to find out you can have it until noon on the weekends and they will bring it to your room for no extra charge. We found all the staff very helpful and friendly, especially when I accidentally left a piece of jewellery behind and was able to retrieve it thanks to their help.

My husband and I stayed here in June and had never been to France before. The staff were friendly, helpful, and gave great recommendations to fabulous restaurants and popular locations. The metro is extremely close to the hotel making all your favorite sightings easily accessible.

We had a wonderful trip to Paris last week! The hotel was located in a great location near the metro stop (4 line) and Luxenburg Gardens!! Wonderful restaurants were on every street and corner. While the room is small compared to US standards the hotel is lovely. Our room was well appointed with double bed, full bath, air conditioning, tv, free internet and elevator. It was the perfect spot to end our long days of sight seeing! The staff was wonderful as well. We can't wait to return to Paris!!

Room Tip: Our room was on the 4th floor. We did not notice any noise. It was very quiet.

I had a great experience at this hotel, beginning with the warm greeting by Sonia. While the room was small, it was very comfortable and lovely-and many Paris hotel rooms are indeed small.The bathroom was fine and the whole room was immaculate The location is incredible-so many places within walking distance and right near the metro and the RER.

I cannot wait to stay there again!!!!!
