Perfect little hotel
Posted Jul 29, 2016 on Hotels
We first arrived at the Danemark at noon on a Sunday, after a red-eye from NY. As soon as we walked in, they said, "Bon jour!" and gave us the keys to our rooms. My partner and I stayed in one room, and my sister had in the room next door. Both had views of the lovely, quiet Rue Vavin. This was our first trip to Paris and we stayed 8 nights. We could not have been happier with the location and neighborhood, or with the quiet and comfort of our restful rooms looking out onto a famed, lovely apartment building. Every time we returned from our museums and site-seeing, it felt cool, comfortable, private, and quiet; we especially loved the beds. The hotel offers breakfast, but we thought it was fun to go out looking for pastries and coffee. Oh, and there's a Starbucks around the corner, for those Americans who need big cups of coffee! A block from Luxembourg Garden, a 15 minute walk to the Seine, walking distance to the Pantheon, St. Sulpice, Les Deux Magots, the Latin Quarter, Shakespeare and Company. And we're 58 and 60, so when I say walking distance, I'm not talking about a hike! The elevator is big enough for maybe two people and a suitcase, and the staircase is spiral, so be ready to make a couple of trips up if you have a lot of luggage. However, the elevator was very reliable and not too slow. Great staff, clean hotel, clean, cozy rooms, good air conditioning, great windows to either open or leave closed, on a perfect little street in a great neighborhood.
