The summer weather made a final appearance for us and it was warm enough for Kevin to jump into the freezing river Aare that runs through Bern and float down the river with the current in the aqua alpine water.

It would have been great to have some eggs and toast, but the Baguette will have to suffice for breakfast.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Le Clos Medicis Paris
An Excellent Small Hotel
We stayed for 2 nights in Aug and were quite impressed. The room was very comfortable and a decnt size. We were upgraded to the top floor which had the bathroom in a loft area. Very nice upgrade. The staff were great and very helpful. Location is excellent. We got a very good rate through Expedia.
I've stayed in quite a few mid-priced hotels in Paris (I'm an American living on London, so frequently take advantage of the Eurostar). The night before my latest weekend away was to begin, the hotel in which (I thought) I was booked couldn't find my reservation, and were full, so I was stuck at midnight trying to find a hotel in Paris, in July no less. Took a chance on the Hotel Le Clos Medicis and found it utterly charming. It is just off the Jardins de Luxembourg, which is a marvelous area. The staff were unvaryingly friendly, helpful, and charming. The rooms are small (but I've stayed in smaller ... small in Paris is the norm) but clean, simply but stylishly decorated, with floor to ceiling windows and the odd exposed beam. The courtyard is beautiful for either breakfast or a late-night cognac from the bar, draped in greenery and quiet and peaceful. It's a breeze to get to from Gare du Nord: three stops on the RER line. The rooms all have names, which is quirky and fun. I was especially pleased that the staff, when confronted with my rudimentary French, didn't immediately switch to English but allowed me to muddle along and spoke clearly and slowly for my benefit. The street that the hotel is on seems to be the Japanese restaurant street (which may explain the slightly Japanese flavour to the decor of the hotel), along with the odd Thai and Moroccan. We tried the Moroccan a couple of blocks down from the hotel and had a brilliant, authentic Moroccan meal. Without a doubt, this is my new weekend-away destination!
An excellent left-bank hotel right in the center of the student quarter. Rooms are small, compared to U.S. standards, but I searched for months for a queen sized bed (two twins) on the garden-side, on a non-smoking floor in a hotel that didn't leave us pennisless and am I glad we found this wonderful little hotel.The hotel is clean and neat and the staff are very friendly. While I don't expect the Parisians to speak English, what made this a five star instead of a four was Pierre who actually spoke English with an American accent! But it wasn't his ability to speak our language that made the difference, but his willingness to share information about the French and French customs that made the difference.Some folks complained that this is too far from the metro and we thought they must have been jet lagged or confused. It is about a block away, though across three street crossings - so maybe it's the lazy folk complaining - not sure. All in all, a wonderful little hotel. Right next to the Jardin du Luxemborg.
We stayed here through an Air France vacation package in October 2003.
The best little hotel le clos medicis
this is a great hotel! the price is median, the atmosphere is pure parisien. the staff is friendly and helpful. they have a nice sitting room as you enter with a fireplace and bar and with comfy couches. it is one block from the luxemburg gardens and has a bakery, restaurant, drug store, etc. on the same street. it was surprisingly quiet given its location. It is also one block from blvd st michel and great cafes! the only drawback for americans would be the size of the elevator and room. but the room was well equiped and our room overlooked the courtyard. I am planning on returning in march.
A wonderful stay
We stayed at the hotel for a week in September and had a wonderful stay. We booked thru Webscapades who recommended the hotel and everything was as suggested. We had the top floor room with the dressing area and bathroom up a charming (tiny) winding staircase. Our room was spotless, attractive and overlooked the courtyard which was very quiet. The breakfast was delicious and a quiet way to start our day. The front desk could not have been more courteous ("Bonjour Madame") and assisted us in several bookings. The Luxembourg Gardens were a treat and the hotel's location was convenient for walking and bus and metro transportation.
Comfort and Convenience on the Left Bank
Very conveniently located on the Left Bank about 1 block from the Luxemburg metro stop. Our room was smallish, not unusually so for Europe though and certainly comfortable. The furniture is modern and the bed comfortable. It was on the top floor, overlooking the street and was quiet while we stayed there. The front desk staff was attentive, friendly and eager to please. A solid mid-range choice.
A great little hotel
Last year I stayed here on several trips. The hotel is idealy located and very comfortable. The staff speak English and are very courteous. I know Paris well and know that there are many hotels but when I return I hope to stay here.
I travel widely, and the service at this hotel was shoddy. When traveling, I always request a room overlooking the courtyard or interior of the building because I'm a light sleeper. For the hotel le clos Medici, I put this request in writing when making my reservation. The hotel never confirmed my reservation, which I found to be negligent. I followed up my reservation with a phone call, specifying once again that I would be arriving late in the evening, but I would like a courtyard room. The hotel staff confirmed this verbally.
