      Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Le Clos Medicis Paris

      An Excellent Small Hotel

      from

      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.

      Charming hotel in the best arrondissment in Paris

      from

      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!

      A great little hotel on the left bank!

      from

      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.

      Good Bang for the Buck

      from

      We stayed here through an Air France vacation package in October 2003.

      We wanted a nice place (quiet, no bugs, clean sheets, a sense of Parisian style) without paying a lot of money. Of course, I'm the kind of lady who wouldn't think twice of staying at the George V, Crillon or Hotel Meurice - But my credit cards would! So for a quick 3 night long weekend, we wound up at the Clos Medicis. The staff was attentive and gracious, the breakfast filling (croissants, hard boiled eggs, fruits, yogurts), our room was quiet (5th floor, facing the courtyard as I had requested) but small, like most are. Everything was CLEAN, and the style was sort of Pottery Barn trendy. If you want to be pampered and have fresh flowers in your room, take long baths in a marble tub and lounge around your room feeling like a Princess, this is NOT the place for you. But it's also not Backpacker City (I'm pretty picky about where I stay). The clientele was a mixture of North Americans and Europeans who were all definitely middle to upper-middle class, but recognized a bargain. We are going back again this summer.

      The best little hotel le clos medicis

      from

      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

      from

      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

      from

      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

      from

      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.

      Rude at hotel le clos medici Paris

      from

      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.

      When I arrived, all courtyard rooms were taken. The receptionist said he could do nothing for me. He was courteous, as was I, but I was disappointed that I was paying 180 euros for unreliable service. I went down the street, found a quiet room at the hotel Saint Paul, for 120 euros (including breakfast) and reserved it.

      I returned to the clos Medici to retrieve my things and move. Not surprisingly, the hotel receptionist insisted that I pay for the night there, even though they had not come through with the room I'd requested. They became argumentative and began pointing at technicalities to backup their unattentive service.

      I have been to Paris many times and have never had such a cold reception as this. I also found the room to be small and rather unimpressive in decor.

      Basically, the staff is unattentive when dealing with any problems, so I would recommend the hotel St. Paul instead.

I took the opportunity to wash my face, change and put on some fresh perfume and makeup, and emerged feeling slightly better. Disappointingly, we were unable to stay in the apartment I had hoped for and instead had to find a hotel. We found an ibis budget hotel right out west. It was not ideal but within our price range, so it is there we stayed. After booking the place ...

      Lauren and I caught an expensive train (we're students here) to the Zurich Airport in the morning to meet up with our family in Paris again, with the intention of spending more than three hours in the train terminal. While flying over Paris, we had a view of the Eiffel Tower and the Arc de Triumph which was quite exciting. Not only that, but Lauren had a good time folding her cookie serviette into a charming origami flower, much the amusement of myself and the man we ...

      We did a lot of walking and looking, including the modern
      church shaped like an upturned boat built in 1979.
      Lunch was spent eating and catching

After having some lunch we ventured into the area where Mona Lisa is to the crowds of people, there were crowds around the Mona Lisa about 30 deep and we didn't worry about fighting our way in to get close, it may be the most famous work their but some others were more impressive. We finished the day in the Richelieu wing and left about ...
