Hotel de Fleurie
Travel Blogs from Paris
... unexpected oasis in amongst the concrete jungle of massive hotel chains servicing CDG. Around midday we headed finally to our home for the next 6 nights - our apartment in 18th Arrondisement. Anyone tossing up whether to catch the train or a cab from CDG - it cost us 39Euro and was pretty much door-to-door in air-conditioned Mercedes luxury ! The apartment is amazing - 2 bedrooms, lounge and dining room, in a very urban ...
... Paris where lovers went to 'secure' their love via a padlock on the bridge wall. I show this photo to Mark, getting little reaction but hoping one day we may go there together.. Then this trip unfolds, and yep on the day of my departure, my gorgeous husband unveils the 3 padlocks he has engraved for this journey for us to attach to the bridge in honour of the shared love! One is for Mark & myself, one is for us and our children, and the third is ...
We arrived in Paris on Sunday and it was raning. We took the Eurostar train from London and went under the water. We walked to the apartment from the Metro station. We were on the fourth floor and it had lots of stairs to climb every day.
We went to a market. We saw lots of things. Some of them ...
I woke up bright and early at 6am. After a Skype chat with Mike I decided on a combo French/American breakfast: tea, sweet roll with jam and I made scrambled eggs. I couldn't find a frying pan so I used what I thought would work from the cupboard. After washing up I hit the Metro for a ride out of town. On the way to the station I walked through the street market outside St. Eustache and picked up my first pain au chocolat of the trip.
I spent most of the day at les Puces St. Ouen, ...
... the 9.30am opening so the queues weren't too bad. The building which houses this collection was an old train station and you can see how it would have been by looking around inside. It's beautifully modern but the structure of the station is still there.
This museum visit was fantastic. It features works by more modern masters like Monet, Cezane, Renoir and Toulouse-Lautrec. There are some very icon masterpieces here that virtually everybody ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel de Fleurie Paris
The centralized location of the hotel on St. Germain Blvd. and proximity to a major metro stop overshadowed any negative aspects of the quality of the hotel, which were few. The staff is friendly & helpful and our room, altough a little small, was charming, clean and perfectly adequate for the amount of time we stayed in the room. The best part is the unbelievable Gerard Mulot pattissier is right around the corner. Skip the continental breakfast in the hotel, unless you have to sit down at a small table in a windowless quiet room, and have walk to Mulot and have a wonderful cafe creme (best coffee we had anywhere) and a warm pastry...etherial.
The rooms were so unbelieveably drab that coming home at the end of the day was depressing. I would never consider staying there again.The location however, is excellent.
Great Location....Friendly Staff.... Very clean rooms.
We spent four (4) nights at the Hotel de Fleurie in early October 2003.
While the rooms may have been somewhat smaller than we are use to here in the US they were very clean, well appointed and the loaction was great. Easy walk to Louvre, Notre-Dame, Orsay, Luxembourg, Pantheon, and St Germain des Pres..... plus lots of great restaurants and cafe's... markets and shopping all close by. The staff was very friendly and spoke great English and were extremely tolerant to the four of us... now of whom spoke much French. When we make our next trip to Paris we will stay at the de Fleurie!
Few problems at the Fleurie
best thing about the hotel is it's loaction in St Germain. There are a lot great restaurants and bistros to choose from, and the Odeon metro is 2 minutes away and enables easy connections to all the sight seeing attractions. Rooms are small although they are quiet. Overall OK for a Hotel charging 150 per night
Praise for the Fleurie
We stayed in the 6th floor room at the Fleurie which is mentioned by the Toronto writer, and we loved it and thought it full of atmosphere.
This goes to show, chacun a son gout. This hotel is clean, pretty tiles in the bathroom (which was rther small), nice staff, and fabulous location. Didn't mind the elevator to 5th and then climb to the 6th routine, the view over the rooftops was well worth it. Never ate breakfast at the hotel, Gerard Mulot is around the corner on rue Seine, one of the best bakeries in Paris.
Even after calling Francine in reservations to state that we would be 24 hours late due to hurricane Isabel they sold the room out from under us. The best they could do was a substitute hotel with a view of a cinder block wall five feet from the window. Try the Saint-James & Albany for class treatment
We recently stayed at the Fleurie. It was our 12th trip to Paris, and each time we have stayed somewhere different. The Fleurie has a wonderful location--one of the best we have ever had.
My husband and I have stayed at the Hotel de Fleurie numerous times and are delighted with each visit. The staff is very accommodating in English. The location is withing walking distance to many of the main attractions of Paris......Notre Dame, Luxumbourg Garden, Louve, Champs Elysses. It is 1/2 block from fabulous restaurants and shopping.
We suggest requesting a room facing inside as opposed to street side for quiet. The rooms are small, but nice with marble baths.
The subway is just a couple blocks. The rates are excellent for the St.
We have a travel agency and always recommend this hotel to clients who want to be centrally located.

We stayed at this hotel last week, and loved it! We were two families (with 5 kids altogether). We used a combination of the en famille suites and deluxe doubles. The suites contain two rooms, each with a bath, with a very small entryway between them--so you could close the outer door, leave the inner ones open to join the two rooms in a suite.
Our family of four spent two two-night stays here in July 2002, with a week in between for travel in the South of France. We had two separate rooms the first stay, and an adjoining "chambre familiare" the second. Rooms and bathrooms are very small -typical for the Left Bank - but comfortable and well-priced. The staff were very helpful: we left luggage there without a problem between our stays, and any request was handled promptly and efficiently.
