Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Great location in the 1st Arrondissement
  • Rooms feature luxurious decor and furnishings
  • Chic restaurant and bar
  • Rooms include flat-screen TVs, DVD players, and free Wi-Fi
  • In-room massages available
  • Multilingual staff is helpful for international travelers

Cons

  • Some complaints of street noise and thin walls
  • Standard rooms are tiny
  • Open bathrooms in some rooms lack privacy
  • One of the priciest neighborhoods in Paris

Bottom Line

Hotel Lumen is a modern and chic boutique hotel in the fashionable 1st Arrondissement, within walking distance to the Louvre and several other must-see attractions. Though the hotel and rooms are small (as is typical of Parisian hotels), Hotel Lumen makes the most of its space: The hip lobby has funky chandeliers and furniture (including some Philippe Starck-like chairs), and the tight rooms have a posh look with velvet furniture, a warm gray-and-mauve color scheme, and luxe accents. However, decorative but not-very-efficient light fixtures mean the rooms are relatively dark. And the 1st Arrondissement is one of the most expensive neighborhoods in Paris, so rates here can be pricey.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In a central location in the 1st Arrondissement, within walking distance to the Louvre

Hotel Lumen is centrally located in the 1st Arrondissement, within walking distance to the Louvre, the Palais-Royal, the Tuileries Gardens, and a metro stop.

Along the right bank of the Seine, the 1st Arrondissement is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Paris and is home to some of the city's must-visits. A relatively small neighborhood, it is dominated by attractions such as the Louvre, and the nearby Palais-Royal and Tuileries Gardens.

Tourists are always bustling through the 1st Arrondissement, making it one of the city's most crowded (and most expensive) areas. But despite the crowds, the 1st Arrondisement is extremely pedestrian-friendly.

  • 29-minute drive to Charles de Gaulle Airport
  • 3-minute walk to the Louvre
  • 3-minute walk to the Pyramides metro stop
  • 5-minute walk to the Tuileries Gardens
  • 7-minute walk to the Palais-Royal, a 17th-century palace that was once home to several French kings
  • 7-minute walk to Place Vendome's high-end shops
  • 8-minute walk to the Opera Garnier, the national opera house
  • 8-minute drive or 17-minute subway ride to Sainte Chapelle, a beautiful 13th-century church
  • 8-minute drive or 21-minute subway ride to Musee d'Orsay
  • 8-minute drive or 21-minute subway ride to Notre Dame Cathedral
  • 10-minute drive or 25-minute subway ride to the Pantheon, a beautiful mausoleum
  • 11-minute drive or 21-minute subway ride to the Arc de Triomphe
  • 12-minute drive or 33-minute subway ride to the Eiffel Tower
