Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Le Royal Paris
Superb location , so clean and quiet!
I found this hotel rated on tripadvisor and was not disappointed.
Travelling from Montparnasse 3 station, we found the location of the hotel most excellent.It took about 10 mins to walk there.En route we passed 2 metros , the nearest one being approx 3 mins walk away from the hotel.
The hotel is exceptionally clean and the decor in the reception area is just like the photos on the website. Lovely colours!There was a wonderful floral smell too.
We had booked a triple room and it was spacious, spotlessly clean and god quality beds and bedding.Plenty storage space and a wonderful view of the boulevard.We were on the 4th floor and it was so quiet both outside and within the hotel.
The bathroom was really big..the actual bath was a bit on the small side but the shower worked brilliantly!
The only downside regards to the room was there was only a mirrror in the bathroom..another one would have been handy in the hall of the suite or in the bedroom.
The lift was small and would not accomodate a wheelchair or pram but the stairs were wide and safe for mobile peeps!
The staff were curteous, helpful and spoke fluent English.
Raspail is a long wide boulevard, very clean with plenty cafes and the surrounding steets offer plenty watering holes and eateries. There is a fantastic boulangerie round the corner, very well priced too.
Luxembourg gardens is 10 mins away:perfect!
We dined at a Chinese, again very well priced, called the Royal Dragon on Rue Delambre, 3 mins walk from the hotel.We also checked out the Italian restauant next to the hotel and found it to be well priced, clean and fun!
We would come back to this hotel again due to the location and standard of hotel in Paris.We paid 290euros for 2 nights which I thought was pretty reasonable for what we got.
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.
Great Place, Great location 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.
Paid 215$/night for 3..Great deal for what you get (In Paris anyway)! Will recommend this too my friends and will go back for my next trip!
Nice, charming hotel.
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.
The lobby is nicely appointed; lots of chrome and soft cushions etc. The staff were great, very helpful, especially the desk staff, perfect English and everything. Be careful you don't get roped into booking a tour; they were quite pushy with us and we ended up buying bus tickets we never used.
The lift was the smallest lift I've ever seen, but the corridors were bright and airy. Not really corridors at all, more a series of landings and doors.
Our room was wrong when we arrived; it wasn't their fault but the fault of our Parisian friend who booked us a double room instead of a double bed. We stayed the first night in this room and there was no problem moving to another. The first room looked over the Raspail, which is a very Parisian street; rooms at the back look over a school yard.
The room was small, as are all Paris rooms, but clean, tidy, and comfortable. Bathroom was good except for the shower door which only went a third of the way across, leading us to unintentionally flood the bathroom! Again, not their fault!
Location was great, lots of real Paris bars, restaurants, and cafes near by. Try the little Italian place downstairs. Take a left out of the hotel and the second left (I think) and you'll hit the cafes. There's also a great nearby bar called "Smoke", but bear in mind it is very smoky! Also very close to the Raspail subway station, a few stops up to the Eifel tower etc, and not many changes to get to the major shopping and sight seeing areas.
All in all a good stay in a nice, average, clean hotel. It has a charm of its own.
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.
Stay at this hotel!
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.

... when I arrived in Hendaye. I had no idea whether Hendaye was in Spain or France. I walked into the station in Hendaye when I arrived & I could see that the signs were written in French, so I presumed I must be in France. Hendaye is in fact, just over the border from Spain & in France. I said to a lady at the ticket office "Palais vous Anglais?" & was very relieved when she answered “yes”. She was very friendly & helpful & was able to make ...
... had a a double bed, a closet, TV, desk, and a tiny bathroom. No tiny doesn't describe it. The architect who designed this bathroom was a magician. Who did he fit a shower, toilet, and sink in a 4X4 ft broom closet?! This bathroom was made for people who are the size of a Twizzler... You have to deeply inhale to gain entrance to the shower, and sit diagonal on the toilet. You can literally ****, Shower, & Shave all at the same time effortlessly. I ...
... markets in Paris. It was a lovely place to get away from the busy tourist attractions of Paris. There were many bright and bustling stalls of fruit and veg in its atmospheric buildings making it one of the city’s loveliest street markets. Many grocers were selling charcuterie, patés, seafood, cheeses and sticky patisseries, foie gras, fresh bread and wine. We purchased our picnic lunch here before we walked to the ...
... took a subway to the Eiffel Tower. We stepped up out of the subway in front of the Palais de Chaillot, which is an Architectural, naval & ethnographic museum. From there steps lead to fountains & gardens, which are directly across from the Eiffel Tower. We took numerous pictures from the top of the steps and then went to the tower. We had to literally wade through masses of guys walking around selling cheap trinkets like statues of ...
... that and then ended up at dinner ... Which was chicken and rice, along with tarte aux pommes for dessert! I told the kids the one rule was to not fall asleep on the bus on the way home ... But within 5 minutes of getting on the bus ... They were all asleep ... LOL. So much for that. Today we head to Versailles and back downtown ... Looking forward to seeing the city on a few hours of sleep! Bonne ...
