Myself and my girlfriend stayed at Hotel Lumen in Feb '14 for three nights. I booked the hotel as a surprise trip for her 29th birthday.
I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone. Although the price was rather a lot i found that once we arrived it was worth the money. We arrived just before lunch to be greeted by very pleasant reception staff who spoke excellent English, even though i can speak French they insisted talking with me in English. Our room was not ready, but we were fully aware that check in was 3 pm so we left out bags behind reception and had a drink in the hotel bar which was conveniently placed next to reception. The bar was very tastefully decorated and the staff were, again, very accommodating. I ordered a glass of beer (less than a pint) and my girlfriend ordered a glass of small red wine, the total came to just under 15 euros. I knew that paris was an expensive city as i have visited before so i was prepared to pay the prices. Once we had finished our drinks were took a walk round the local area, which was beautiful. The hotel is very well located if you are an art lover, but also if you prefer to see the other attraction Paris has to offer. The weather was stunning so walking around the "city of love" could not haver more perfect.
Upon returning to the hotel (just before 3pm check in time) we were told that out room was ready, and on one bad note (not even that bad) we had to carry out own bags to the room as there was no porter available, however i do not see this as a negative point as the lift goes to all floors and the rooms are just yards from the lift.
Our rom was VERY clean and tidy, although not very spacious but there was plenty of room for the two of us. Our bathroom was stylish and clean, and the decor of the room was very boutique fitting. We had free wi-fi, however every time i came off the internet page or left the room/hotel, you had to sign back in which got very repetitive. I had booked a classic room, and the view was mainly of the street below and surrounding building but that is to be expected when staying in the centre of a city. There was not a great deal of noise at night as there were limited restaurants and bars close by. To the right of our fully opening french doors we could see the walk way toward the Louvre Museum and a small view of the river seine and one of its bridges.
Our room was cleaned every day and to an excellent standard, we had a 32 inch television which had some english channels, but in my opinion if you are watching TV while your staying in paris you should have stayed at home! We had been left a complimentary half bottle of good red wine in the room which we decided to take with us to the park across from the notre dame to enjoy while sitting in the sun. The bed was VERY spacious and VERY comfortable, the sheets were clean and the bed was made up by the maids very well. We had Hermes shower gels and shampoos in the shower and a small bottle of Hermes fragrance. The shower was powerful which therefore caused water to end up all over the floor which took most of the towels in the bathroom to mop up.
All in all the hotel is well worth a look if you are visiting Paris. There are no cons about it!
Excellent staff, very clean, very stylish, perfect location and great food. Don't listen to any bad reviews about this hotel, we absolutely loved our trip!
