... shop that sells macarons, a confection with two meringue type cookies with a flavored ganache in between. They are small little bites of heaven. We got about a dozen so we could try as many flavors as possible. The mint flavor tasted like biting directly into a spearmint leaf. The rose flavor was subtle and floral. The salted caramel was incredible, just the right balance of salty and sweet.The macarons didn't disappoint and I have a feeling we'll be craving them once we get ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Le Royal Paris
I found this hotel rated on tripadvisor and was not disappointed.
Great Location - Not Disappointed
Le Royal Luxembourg/Montparnasse is well located, close to the number 4 train (2 mins walk), close to most major sites of Paris. A few good restraurants just around the corner. I recommend La Coupole strongly.
We Stayed in the Classic Triple Room for 5 nights. The room is spacious and clean with AC and Plat panel LCD TV. What we like the best is the bathroom. It's big and has 2 sinks with a separated toilet with a door. It also has one shower and a separate bath tube.
The breakfast was good and typical, the staff were friendly and helpful.
I would stay here again.
Beautiful hotel, clean and well located.Friendly staff, quiet rooms.I recommend.
We stayed in a junior suite with our two children. The room was big and nice and clean, even quiet. Breakfast was ok with croissant and coffee etc, breakfastroom was enjoyable, not crowded and had a glass roof.
We found this hotel staff very friendly at the reception and in the restaurant. No problems occurred, everything was more than we expected.
The location was good, nice neighbourghood with little restaurants and the beautiful Luxemburg park just nearby. I would recommend this hotel to my friends.
We have just returned from a great weekend at this hotel having travelled on Eurostar. The hotel was easy to get to on the metro, direct from Gare de Nore, and just 2 minutes walk from the station, so it is perfect for sightseeing. There are numerous restuarents and bars nearby, which is lucky as there is not a bar in the hotel, still if you are desperate there is a mini bar in the room. The staff were very welcoming, and imformative, and breakfast was as described in other reviews, so not bad for France.The only downside was the small bedroom, with barely enough room to get out of bed on one side, but the funiture was elegant and clean.
Been to Paris prior and always had difficulty finding a decent hotel. Aware the rating system cannot be compared to North American. So this time, I did my homework and finally decided to book at Le Royal. What a great choice! What a great surprise. We had a triple/family room for 3. The bathroom is exactly as shown in the pics. THe room is a good size. There were 3 single beds, one against the wall and 2 others are side by side. Had a mini fridge and desk, T.V. and we also had 3 luggages and still have enough room to walk around. The closet had a mini safe. Everything was clean! Great location, not on a crowded street and only 4 minutes walk to the metro station. 6-10 minute stroll to the Jardin Luxembourg. Staff were welcoming, always pleasant and helpfull. Continental breakfast included which provided a decent selection: Cereal, ham, croissants, pain au chocolat, yogurt, boiled egg, juices, coffee & tea.
We stayed in the Royal in October 04. It looks much larger from the photos on the web, and from the virtual tour, as it was much smaller than I imagined when I walked in.
Good location and value
I stayed here for six nights in late March in a superior room. I needed to be in the Montparnesse area, so I picked it for the location. There are some great restaurants nearby. I actually thought the breakfast was fine, by Paris standards, and I had mine served in the room. Book a superior room, since the regular ones are small. First time visitors to Paris might not be as happy with the location, since it is a long walk up to Notre Dame, etc. Metro nearby. What I like about this location is that it is not overrun with tourists. Hotel recently redone in modern, bold colors--great for those who don't like all the florals.
My 10 year old daughter and I stayed at this hotel in April 2004 for 4 nights. It was wonderful. It seems to have been recently refurbished and the room we had (no.15) was not particularly large but beautifully furnished and the shower and loo were separate which is unusual but nice. Our room was at the front of the hotel on busy Boulevard Raspail but the sound proofing on the windows was amazing - we hardly heard a thing. The staff were really friendly to both of us. The breakfasts were fairly good, the croissants were excellent although the fruit salad would have been better had it been fresh fruit and the coffee arrangements could have been better. The hotel is in an excellent location, just a few minutes walk from the Jardins de Luxembourg and near some really nice restaurants and patisseries! The only drawback for my daughter was that although the tv was advertised as being satellite it was all French or Arabic although there was a channel allotted for the BBC which didn't work. We asked for it and were told that it was something to do with the satellite being pointed in a certain direction! But we had a fantastic time and having a great hotel certainly contributed to that.
A well-placed hotel
The hotel, on the Blvd Montparnasse, is very central; very near our favourite part of Paris, St. Germain-des-Pres. Overall the hotel was excellent. The reception staff (with one exception) were pleasant and helpful and the chamber-maid was one of the nicest we ever came across. Where we felt there could be some improvement was the breakfast - come on, a thermos of coffee in Paris! And that was never hot!! And if they happened to have run out of yoghurts - tough!! Tinned fruit salad would also not be high on our want list of breakfast items. Still the rooms were large (for Paris) and extremely comfortable, although a word of warning, our safe eeriely opened without being asked several times. Verdict: Elegant hotel; great location; could do better on the breakfast front.
Very Nice Hotel
On Raspail (14th). My wife and I stayed at this small hotel in June 2003. Excellent, clean room on 3rd floor with 2 windows opening out to tree-lined blvd. Airconditioned, modernized bathroom. Typical breakfast. This was the most pleasant room we have had among the hotels we've stayed at before in Paris. Quiet area, but only 1 1/2 blocks to at least 3 or 4 excellent restaurants (la Coupole, le Dome, le Select.) The Metro routes at this handy location were perhaps a little more roundabout to some of the major sights.
