This really is a boutique hotel, and we love it. The location is so handy to everything, much of it within walking distance, but anything further afield can be accessed via the Metro station a mere 20m from the front door.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel De Latour Maubourg Paris
Simply the best
A great hotel with the warmest of welcome, and great location!
We just returned from a wonderful 4 day stay and Latour Maubourg. Not only was it ideally located on a quiet street near Napolean's tomb, but we appreciated and enjoyed the Marie and Victor Orsenne's wonderful hospitality and assistance with sightseeing pans.
A nice, cozy place
My husband and I stayed at Latour Maubourg for five nights in early April and were very happy with the experience. We dealt mostly with Victor - he was very pleasant without being cloying. He was happy to make restaurant recommendations in the neighborhood. Our room was on the second level and overlooked the street. It was quite large and comfortable, but it was also very noisy when we opened the windows. We're from Manhattan and used to street noise so it wasn't a problem, but it could certainly disturb non-city dwellers. The location was perfect and we really enjoyed our leisurely breakfasts each morning. The cafe next door was also perfect. Well within walking distance of the Eiffel Tower, Les Invalides, and the D'Orsay.
We would definitely recommend this hotel for people looking for a cozy, low-key place.
Very overdue review - what a wonderful place
Better late than never I suppose -
We stayed at the Latour Maubourg for a week when we visited Paris for the first time in September 2002 - our room was very comfortable with a nice view on the park (which I would recommend). We found the location excellent- particularly if you enjoy getting around on the Metro or on foot which we do. Mr. Steve's famous "Rue Cler" is a block or two away- but really all of Paris is easily within reach.
We had a room facing the park and Metro station - and I must say that I don't really remember any Metro noise - and I'm quite fussy about noise.
Although we prefer "non-tech" vacations - it was nice to have the easily-available internet terminal to email friends and family.
Maria was very appropriately friendly without being intrusive - I particularly appreciated her guiding us through the intricacies of reservations and tipping at French restaurants (not that difficult once someone guides you - you can't always trust the guidebooks). -She was also very patient with my not-so-perfect attempts at French and German (practicing the language is important for me). Her tips on museum-going and general assistance with our daily itineraries were invaluable.
The breakfasts - delicious - a wonderful start to the day. More than our usual breakfasts - and so hard to resist.
Faust, their dog, an embassador of good will - always ready to greet and get a little attention (and always hoping for illicit treats - dogs are dogs the world round).
I finally got around to doing a review because we are going back in September and we have just confirmed our reservations at Latour Maubourg - we are looking forward to our return!
Good location, great concierge, very small room on inner courtyard with no view
The owners of this hotel are great at helping with hard to come by reservations in Paris- dinner, shows, etc. Our room was small and had a window that opened onto another wall of the hotel with no view to the outside. Rates are cash only. For the use of a credit card, our room rate increased by 50%. Quite a shock! Take cash and ask for a room with a view in advance or your memories may not be pleasant.
We have returned to Paris twice since and have chosen to stay elsewhere.
Since they have free WLan it's my first address in Paris...
A Rip Off
My husband and I stayed here in September 2003. The toilet leaked, there were tiles missing from the bathroom, peeling paint, the room was dark and not attractive. The bed sagged quiite a bit. The owner is cold as ice with an arrogant attitude. The hotel is over the Metro stop--bring a pair of earplugs. The trains run from approximately 6.30am until well after midnight. It is extremly loud. A very disappointing experience. Would definitely NEVER stay here again nor reccommend it. Have stayed in two star hotels for half the price which were much nicer.
The Latour-Maubourg Hotel offers air condition in its Deluxe Rooms, which are only in the first floor and the suite... Please check the website for more details.
Charming Hotel Only in the Wintertime!
A charming small hotel. Location is ideal - metro station is across street. Unfortunately this hotel does not have air conditioning, which is a necessity in Paris in the summer. We baked in room on the top floor.
Wonderful small hotel
I stayed in this lovely hotel in Nov.,2002 for my 50th birthday celebration. The owners live on the premises, speak several languages and are extremely helpful and friendly. The location is perfect near the Rue Cler market area and a very short walk to the Eiffel tower. The view from my room was of the golden dome of the Hotel Invalides. The Metro station is across the street, very handy on the rainy days. The rooms were very large by Paris standards. You can't go wrong with this hotel.

Back at home, the two of us are up and about very early - 6am - but here in Paris it's good to do what the locals do and have a leisurely start to the day.
Once we'd got ready and had our petit dejeuner francais, we headed off on the Metro to discover more Parisian delights. First stop, the Paris Opera. This was our first visit there, and it …
After our standard petit dejeuner of orange juice, fabulous croisssants and coffee, we set off on a further voyage of discovery of Paris. The weather was a bit cooler and somewhat cloudy, which was a good thing for our comfort, though not so good for photography.
First stop was Place de la Concorde, though we didn't stay there long. It's well …
Another big day. As with the two previous days, the weather was fine and clear, and we decided to take ourselves off to explore a few more places. We started with a leisurely walk towards the river, crossing it via the spectacular Alexandre III bridge. Our walk then took us past the beautiful Palais de la Decouverte and the Petit Palace. We were …
So long in the planning, and now it is finally happening. The girls picked us up as arranged at 1130am on Sunday morning, and dropped us off at Brisbane Airport. Our flight to SIN went smoothly, window plus aisle seat. Then it was a four-hour wait in Singapore for the connecting flight. Not a problem, as the time went quickly enough. The SIN/CDG …
We surfaced remarkably well, and at the civilised hour of 0730. Fortunately jet-lag doesn't seem to be a problem, at least not when travelling in this direction. A pleasant breakfast of fresh orange juice, croissant and coffee made a for good start, and has probably set the pattern for future breakfasts. It's great to get real croissants for a …
