Quiet hotel near Luxembourg gardens
Posted Aug 29, 2016
At the south end of the Boulevard St Michel, away from the tackiness of the Latin quarter and almost opposite the Jardin du Luxembourg, this is a quiet and stylish small hotel in traditional building on a street corner. Rooms are no larger than they need to be, but well equipped with wi-fi and a minibar, though ours had only a shower, not a bath. The staff are friendly and most speak good English. Downstairs is a lounge wackily decorated in Fornasetti style, with breakfast and dinner available in a pavement café that is also open to the public. There are plenty more of those nearby, and on hot days it is a relief to sit in the shade of the Luxembourg gardens. For a restful weekend near to the city centre, fine; if you are looking for more excitement, look elsewhere.
