      Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Jardin le Brea Paris

      Lovely Atmosphere and Location

      from

      Based on Trip Advisor reviews and a 3 nights for the price of 2 promotion my husband and I stayed here for 3 nights in late August and were not disappointed. Clean, small rooms with big windows and tasteful decor situated 2 minutes from the subway and a 10 minute walk from the beautiful Luxemburg Gardens. The grocery, butcher shop, bakery and laundromat are all only a minute away, right on the Rue le Brea and then there are plenty of restaurants close by. The area has a lovely atmosphere in which we felt very safe and the staff were very pleasant and helpful. I would happily go back here on my next trip to Paris.

      Great place, great location, highly recommended

      from

      I booked this place on the strength of the reviews on this site, so hoped it would be good - and was not disappointed. Rooms are small, but amongst the cleanest I have stayed in. There are plenty of lounges in the reception area and dotel staff were friendly and helpful. Location is superb - 2 mins walk from Vavin metro station and close to some great restaurants - expensive and cheap, located in a safe area as well. Breakfast was also high quality. Highly recommended, and I would stay here again without hesitation.

      Charming and clean

      from

      I researched about 50-100 Paris hotels and decided on this one. The staff is excellent, friendly. We bought some cheese to bring back home and they kept it in the fridge for us. Our room is spotless, great sound barriers. Location is excellent, never felt uncomfortable walking around in the evenings. I would go back to this hotel again.

      Great area

      from

      What a lovely bit of luck brought us to this gem of a small hotel. We randomly selected a place based on closeness to someone we wanted to visit and couldn't have been happier. Great shops and restaurants around (love the huitres across the street), walk to the jardin, have an Amorino gelato, or just sit at the window and watch the people come and go at the boucherie. Staff were fabulous and tolerated my feeble attempts at francaise. The rooms are tiny, but hey it's Paris, who's going to hang out in the room?

      Stay here in paris

      from

      my girlfriend and i decided to stay here for 3 nights this summer and loved it. we took a taxi from the train station, 10 euro and a nice ride right by the eifel and the louvre, this place was awesome, it was in a much more laid back area, right next to the metro stop vavin. we walked in the door, mentioned my reservation, and then were handed a key. this is a more laid back hotel more like a home than a holiday in. i would stay here again and again+

      from

      We spent 5 lovely days and nights at this charming hotel surrounded by bars, restaurants and the metro, to take us so easily around all of Paris, only 3 minutes from the hotel.The rooms, although a little on the small side were very comfortable and attractively decorated. The staff were very pleasant and helpful and breakfast in the chic, vaulted cellar room was thoroughly enjoyed by us both every morning. We shall certainly return for another visit in the not too distant future.

      Favorite in Paris

      from

      We stayed at le Brea for 6 nights in October 2003, on our way back from Florence. I have decided that this hotel, along with the Bretonnerie, are my favorite in Paris. We will return to this one in March.We stayed in one of the superior rooms that cost a little more so I cannot speak for the standard rooms.However, the bed was large and very comfortable, the room looked out over the courtyard which has been glassed over to form the lobby area and winter garden. Very serene and elegant. The decor was nice, the rooms and hotel meticulously clean, the bathroom (with separate WC) spotless and newly renovated. In our room, however, you must be able to use a shower in a tub that lacks a shower curtain.

      A nice feature in our room was a minibar fridge. This allows you to keep your own bottle of wine available.The public areas of the hotel are very nicely decorated and include a front sitting room and 'honor' bar toward the rear with sitting. We did not eat breakfast in the hotel, as we have found cafes and other venues to be better in general, however the breakfast room was nice and well attended.I consider the neighborhood of this hotel and location to be ideal. It is far enough away from the crowds of tourists in the 1st and 6th, yet close enough to walk over to Bon Marche or Cherche Midi. There numerous local restaurants, bistros, etc. It is a short walk from the south end of Jardin de Luxembourg as well as close to convenient metro stops. All that having been said, it is a small hotel (no more than 25 rooms), does not have a restaurant or room service, has a small staff, is populated primarily by Europeans and sits on a small side street off Blvd Montparnasse that some cab drivers cannot immediately identify. If these are your choices, it is an ideal spot for a stay in Paris.

      Here's a spot to enjoy Paris from

      from

      We stayed for 2 weeks during the summer heat wave of '03 and we loved this hotel. The decor was tres french, the desk was unobtrusive, everything was always clean. The location is superb - near 3 metro lines, the 4 Montparnasse cafes, le jardin du luxembourg, a movie theater, several restaurants, a laundromat... It was deightful and rue Brea is a wonderful neighborhood. Don't miss the ice cream at Amorino's on rue Vavin as you walk to the park; the meringue is out of this world.

      Charming hotel, great location

      from

      We stayed at the Hotel Le Brea in July 2003 and found it a perfect, small hotel for our stay in Paris. The staff was helpful and the hotel was in a quiet nieghborhood within steps of a metro station and a short walk away from the luxemborg gardens. Our room were small, but beatifully decorated, with a spacious bathroom and windows opening out on to the street. We recommend going somewhere else for breakfast, though, theirs was nothing special.

      Nice small hotel

      from

      We stayed a week there last summer and it was a nice small hotel. Nice location near Jardin luxembourg (metro or cab was easy to catch). The hotel is small and quiet (ask for courtyard room) and we had the larger room which is pretty nice. Bathroom was cleaned and bright. Do not expect any service though since all they served is breakfast (for about Euro 8) and you are on your own, no room service, etc.. But it is very close to the neighborhood's cafe, little stores/groceries, pharmacy, boutiques and small neighborhood restaurants. It is also located next door to a laundromat. So it is convenient, and especailly for people who travel across europe like us and have laundry to wash and loves to experience the real parisian life. A true unique experience.

      I would like to say I’m immune to scams, but I’m not… Before I start to climb stairs to Sacre-Coeur I’m stopped by some guy that wants to make me bracelet for luck. I’m trying to go but… he talks interestingly, that he is from *****ia and he works for church….. Ok, I’m not that stupid, during this I’m asking how much it will cost, the answer "don’t worry" isn’t good for me, but it’s ...

We let Jennine loose again, but this time armed with cash and credit cards, so back to the Champs Elysees she went, to finish off what she had started earlier! Our day finished by meeting up again at the Trocadero for some dinner while overlooking the Eiffel Tower. We even managed to see it's nighttime light ...

A mad rush through crowds and out the exit and back in another entrance showing my ticket got me back on track. Bruce apparently realised the error of his ways soon after launching me off in the elevator and was wondering if I would be at the designated spot .

      ... that piece intrigued me since I only have so much time to write the blog! Hopefully the pictures speak for me! I left the Louvre once the Asian invasion occurred. They all came at once in huge groups and began crowding each piece and taking individual pictures with it. Then came the screaming kids who I know don't care nor know the history and prestige of the artwork. I grabbed a crepe on the way to the Tuilles gardens and sat down next to the fountain. I sat there for almost an hour ...

At times the ceilings dripped with water and the limestone floors were quite slippery. Throughout the 1.5 km walk, there were marble plaques engraved with philosophical, religious and poetic phrases that provoke reflection (I'll admit to using Mademoiselle Google ...
