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.

Map of Hotel Lumen Paris 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.
