Bottom Line

The Hotel Lutetia -- in all of its Art Deco glory -- is a sprawling historic property on the Left Bank in the center of Saint Germain-des-Pres. This Jazz-era hotel offers meeting rooms, two restaurants, a bar, spa, fitness center, and even a smoking lounge. The hotel recently underwent renovations and rooms come in a variety of sizes: superior and deluxe rooms, or junior and signature suites with varying themes. For example, the Parisian Suite was once the residence of the Opera House Director and has direct views of the Eiffel Tower. The two restaurants include a classic brasserie and the gastronomic restaurant "Le Paris" reminiscent of cruise liners in the 1930s. The Piano Bar for live jazz is a musn't-miss. For "matin," a breakfast buffet is served for a steep price and can elicit long wait times. A better idea is to try the many neighborhood cafes or jump on the metro across the street.

Oyster Hotel Review


A Left Bank hotel in the heart of the 6th arrondissement with loads of restaurants and boutiques

Map of Hotel Lutetia

Hotel Lutetia is located on the Left Bank in the heart of the fashion, art, and literature district. This area is safe and fun to explore by foot, and the Luxembourg Gardens, and the Orsay and Louvre museums are within easy reach. For shoppers, the Bon Marche department store is across the street, and the neighborhood is full of antique shops and boutiques. Though the hotel has two restaurants, the area has a number of charming restaurants and cafes. To get to other areas in Paris via metro, the Sevres-Babylone station is across the street, and Saint-Sulpice station is a five-minute walk away.
