Sophisticated Paris hotel close to the Latin Quarter

Travelers seeking proximity to the Latin Quarter target Villa Lutece Port Royal, a 45-room property with contemporary leanings. Art plays a huge role in design, from the hand-written inscriptions on the walls to the chic black-and-white décor in guest rooms. Guests rely on conveniences like Wi-Fi access, room service and a meeting room should business beckon during a trip to the City of Light.

Highlights
  • Affordable contemporary hotel near the Latin Quarter
  • Breakfast and room service
  • Hand-written inscriptions on the walls
Rooms

The Villa Lutece Port Royal houses 45 rooms, including nine deluxe rooms. A black-and-white theme dominates, with distinctive touches sprinkled throughout, starting with the hand-written inscriptions on the walls. Other notable features include a black-and-white checkerboard-tiled soaking tub viewable via a peekaboo wall, a double bowl sink, handsome plaid benches and striped drapes. Rooms are hardwired and Wi-Fi enabled.

Features

Villa Lutece Port Royal guests lounge in the lobby, a visual feast anchored by a plum-colored scroll carpet and curved terracotta-hued armchairs. Gallery lamps showcase artwork hung on the walls, which sets up just the right ambiance for a nightcap after exploring local attractions like the Latin Quarter, The Pantheon and the Sorbonne.

Paris Trip Oct 2013

A very nice hotel which was well situated. The only problem we had was that we were not made aware that breakfast was not included and it was quite pricey and definitely not worth the money.

Disappointing

Location was ok for the places in Paris that we wanted to visit. Room was compact - on two levels - which separated the bedroom area from the bathroom and toilet. Expensive mini bar. Air conditioning was inadequate - Paris was very hot during our stay. Room equipped well but in need of redecoration.14€ charged per day for breakfast. Complained to reception when a cockroach was found in the room. Reception staff varied from professional and helpful to downright rude. We will not choose this hotel again.

Comfortable & Reasonable

This hotel is approx 50 minutes walk to the Notre Dame / Latin Quarter area or 15 minutes by bus, which are located outside the hotel. The roomsa re quiet, spacious, cleaned every day with a change of towel and helpful staff. The decor is a little odd, not that that matters. Taxis cost around 60 Euros to the airport and the journey takes around an hour, dependant on the traffic around the airport - which can be a nightmare. The metro is just outside the hotel too but we found the buses more convenient, as you can see the sights whilst you trave. The hotel brought us teas/coffees in the morning for three euros a drink but we didn't eat there. There a number of bistros close to the hotel for drinks and food of any type, including a wells tocked supermarket. May not be the best location for all because of the distance but the closer you get into Paris the more expensive it is

Three Star Hotel

This is a Three Star hotel, not a Four. Our room was small, even by Paris standards, such that the two of us could not walk around at the same time. The room had all the basics but nothing extraordinary that would warrant a fourth star. A coffee maker in the room would have been nice since there are no complementary refreshments in the hotel. The staff was friendly and courteous. The lobby is comfortable but could use more informational materials. The biggest plus for us was the location just outside the Latin Quarter. A one block walk to the Metro put all of Paris within convenient reach, and there were bakeries, markets and restaurants within a five-minute walk.

so so

The hotel was ok and location was ok. But for a 4* you expect much more. The double bed was just 2 singles pushed together. There was no iron in room and had to go into the conference room to use the communal iron and board. There was no kettle or tea and coffee making facilities. The décor was shabby around the skirting boards the paint was flaking away. To top it of when you think paid everything the hotel charges you "City Tax" adding an extra 10.40 euros for a 3 night stay. Which was failed to mention.

I have just returned from a two night stay at Villa Lutece Port Royal with my wife, we had the pleasure of staying in the 121 - which was light, bright and clean! The room had a large, comfy bed, a well appointed bathroom with jacuzzi bath which did not work. The hotel staff were friendly, polite and welcoming. The hotel is located close to the three metro stations. I would recommend this hotel to any young couple traveling to Paris - Enjoy!!

Good basic hotel

Good overall hotel in east central Paris. Great commuter links and convenience stores 2 mins walk away. pros: location, price, breakfast, mod cons cons: only one english tv channel - cnn, no free tea/coffee in room, back of hotel overlooks bland misc buildings and a playground full of screaming kids from 9am - mid afternoon.

This hotel is lacking so amenities.

The amenties in this hotel is very poor. This is a 2 star hotel. There was no microwaves in the room. The hotel didn't even have ice. The machine has been broken for 2 months. we had a water leak and the staff didn't check on it until the next day. Needs lots of work
