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.

Clean and Nice

Hotel is clean and nice. Location is near Nationale train station(Line 6) but you have to walk a little bit.. maybe 5-10mins. Room was spacey and clean, bathroom was nice, bed is comfortable to rest after long day in Paris. But my problem was reception staffs are cant speak English well but they were friendly. I called them to ask the location but I had a hard time to communicate with them.. I had to pay to CDG airport 59 Euro(5AM without traffic).. So if you planning to take a taxi to airport, it's better to get shuttle service which you can get in this website.

Nice hotel, poor location

The room was small, but that's to be expected in Paris. Same with the bathroom, but the tiny shower had great water pressure with what seemed like limitless hot water and a hand-held shower head (a big plus). The mattress was really hard, but that's a preference thing. There was an elementary school nearby, so sleeping in or an afternoon nap wasn't an option without earplugs. A Metro station (Campo Formio) was a stone's throw away. The staff was very helpful and accommodating. They called it a 4-star hotel, but I'd give it 3.5 stars. Overall, a good value, but probably best for single people or couples without kids.

A fantastic place to stop in for a drink is Hotel Costes. A local took me here for wine. Very upscale and trendy, but apparently frequented more by the local elite than by tourists.

Not that good

Small rooms, and the noise from the other rooms were very annoying. The hotel is not worth the money

Good hotel, but learn and go prepared.

Started very unconfortable, because we came from a 12 hours trip, and got to the hotel at 10:30 AM ready to take a shower and have a nap, and the person in charge told us in an addament way, that we can't have the room until 2:00PM. This was very bad planning from your staff.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

There is an italian restaurant accross from the Metro, around the corner of the hotel, with supperb food, and very reasonable prices. Everything else we found very expensive.The hotel breakfast is expensive, but the coffee is 3 Euros, which is reasonable for Paris, and around the corner, again, there is a bakery with great baggettes, and sanwiches.

A good option on Paris

I am very satisfied with the Villa Lutece hotel. Although it is not on the heart of the Latin Quarter, it is very close to 3 metro stations. The hotel room is small to the American standard, but very comfy! The decoration based on poetry give a charm to the atmosphere. The bed is very comfortable with a lot of pillows and the bathroom has a good size, is beautiful and has all the amenities for a 4 stars hotel: clothes dryer, soap and shampoos, etc. The room is very clean. The staff is very helpful and nice, but not everyone speaks English. The hotel offers a free WI-FI connection on the lobby. It was a very good choice because with this price, we could enjoy a 4 stars hotel: comfortable with a high service standard and the neighborhood was nice and very close to the metro.

The breakfast from the hotel was very expensive, so we went to a nice Boulangerie very close to the hotel on the way to the Campo Formio Station.

Not that good of an expereince

The locations is kinda good since its moreor less place centrally between three metro stations . There are quite a number of restraunts around including a nice Indian cuisine . The Eifell tower is aorund 6 stops awasy would recommend ot take a metro to tracadero ...that has the best view of the tower with nice hotels to dine . The staff during the day time is really good and freindly but night staff at the front office guy sounded pretty rude . the rooms are extremly small and open to a school so noisy .Not sure if the AC acutally worked . t would not recommend the same for a couple .

Rain did not stop the fun!

Our daughter was married in Provence on Saturday. We decided to spend time in Paris. It rained the whole time, but the hotel was good and clean and the staff was very helpful. We would recommend it.
