Hôtel le Lavoisier4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
We initially looked at lots of hotels in Paris for a few days break (3 days in between Christmas and the New Year) and chose Le Lavoisier purely from the images on the internet. It is an easy 10/15 minute walk to Le Arc de Triomphe, even I couldn't get lost..! We drove to the hotel, the satnav took us directly to the hotel door. Parking was always going to be an issue but we managed to park right outside the hotel (Free parking 1800 - 0800) we moved the car to a secure public car park (2 mins drive away). Be warned, using public car parks in Paris is expensive, we paid 39 euros a day. As you arrive at Le Lavoisier there is a 'wow' moment, it has beautiful kerb appeal and a certain classy element. We were offered a warm welcome. The room was booked via an internet booking site, not sure if there are certain rooms reserved for these sites but i am sure there were better rooms in the hotel, this is not to say this rooms was not nice. The bed was wonderful and large, seperate bathroom and shower room and a great set of doors opening onto the street, along with lovely wooden shutters. We felt breakfast at 15 euros PPPD was slightly expensive so went to 'Pauls' Boulangerie some 10 yards from the hotel, they offer coffee and a fresh pastry for 3.50 euros.... as well as a marvelous selection of pastries and savoury. Hotel staff were very friendly and courteous. Would we stay here again.......... ? Yes i think so but would need swallow the parking costs.
I visit this hotel on a business trip with a large group of 8 people the reception staff was rude. Abrupt and had no way of talking to clients. The front door was broken the receptionist would yell at you to close the door. It seems we were a problem for the hotel. On the day of check out there was no where to secure your bags the staff was not very helpful we ended up going to another hotel to secure bags while we attended a meeting prior to leaving this amazing city.
My brief stay in this hotel cast a bit of a clould over an enthralling visit to this wonderful city. The hotel is ideally located and was chosen also because of the previous ratings on this and other sites. However, noting could have been far from the truth. The staff were rude and abrupt and it appeared that we had become an inconvenience. Instance of this was an approach to the front desk to ask if they had an adaptor to loan or hire. The lady there did not even look up to acknowledge me but said NO and then ignored me further. The front door had a broken self closer, so when you walked through it stayed open and as soon as someone forgot to close it, the front desk would be yelling... Shut The Door! On a business trip where I stayed in several hotels around the world, this was the worst! I am only relating what happened directly to me.... but I also witnessed others facing the same ordeal. I am certain that something must have happened as this Hotel was rated highly and I noted that it received a Trip Advisor Star in 2015...As it stands I would not stay there again!
Wonderful hotel with friendly staff. Small but comfortable room near metro. Nice pastry shop Paul's (there are a few of them around Paris)next door for breakfast coffees and baked goods.. Would stay again if ever in Paris again.
I had to set-up my travel to Paris on short notice and my regular business hotel in Saint-Cloud was full. So I’ve picked up this hotel as it was very close to my business office. To top the bill, travel was a nightmare: delayed flight, busy entrance to Paris, all the good things. So I’ve arrived to the hotel around 22:30, hungry and tired. Instead of welcome greeting I’ve got a bored receptionist that hand me a classic key and said the breakfast was €20. When saying I had breakfast included he grin at me saying it was not. I had corporate reservation voucher issued by AMEX stating black on white “Bed and Breakfast” and had to put that under his eyes. He agreed like was doing me a huge favor. I took the key and the half-kilo trinket attached to it (looked very vintage have to say) and went up-stairs to my room. Which was small and old. Everything was decaying. Didn’t need to look at details as it was obvious; from furnishing, plugs, doors, everything looks old and worn. The room: was tiny. I'm not good at measuring but without bathroom was something like 3mx3m. Bathroom is another 3-4 square meters. I believe it should be a minimum standard for each star category when it comes to usable surface. And they use this pathetic excuse for not having mini-bar... That is a must as I know for a four star, like having restaurant. This hotel fails that as well. Room service? Didn’t dare to expect that as was not present. Another mandatory for a four stars hotel. Breakfast, is a joke. An attendant will bring you a small croissant, a glass of juice and 1/8 of a baguette. Eggs, ham and water, and anything else, you must pay extra. I have been in many four stars, even if the food was poor, it was plenty and eggs, never missed from breakfast. How they got that 4 stars rank? That still is a mystery to me.
I had a lovely two days in Paris with my 11 year old daugher. Le Lavoisier was perfect for our visit, great location, very comfortable and very helpful and friendly staff. I would highly recommend for anyone with children. Breakfast was especialy appreciated!
Over the last twenty years, I've stayed at the Hotel Le Lavoisier three times - in fact, when I first visited Paris, I was among their first guests at the then new hotel. I'm happy to report that nothing has changed since that first visit...well, a lot has changed (Wi-Fi, LCD TVs, etc.) but the quality service, comfortable accommodations, and phenomenal location remain impeccable. From the moment you arrive at this quaint hotel, it exudes luxury with a tasteful exterior and modern lobby with typical Parisian flourishes. The staff is always ready to help arrange transportation, recommend dining options, or answer any and all questions you will inevitably have throughout your stay. I've stayed in two different room types during my various stays at the Hotel Le Lavoisier, but each are perfect in their own right. I will readily admit that the Superior Room is not as large as most chain-hotel rooms, but I believe that adds to its charm. But as an American of larger stature, I didn't really feel like I was running out of space except in the bathroom, where it was a tighter squeeze near the toilet. The accents and furniture in the rooms are lovely, and the hardwood floors are a plus - you just don't see that at a Hyatt or Marriott hotel. What I'm always most impressed with at the Hotel Le Lavoisier is how little street noise you can hear from inside your room. There's a major thoroughfare running within earshot of the hotel, but you wouldn't know it from inside one of their rooms. I found myself opening the windows just to get some fresh air and inject some of that evening Paris traffic noise into our accommodations. This time around my wife and I decided to get the breakfast package as part of our daily room rate, and what a great decision that was. In the basement of the hotel, there is a delightful little breakfast nook with about 5-6 tables and this is where your served a traditional French full breakfast. Croissants, cheese, yogurt, cereal, orange juice, and delicious coffee meet your table within minutes. And for a few more Euros, you can get a plate of bacon and eggs that are better than anything you'd find in a random cafe in Paris. If you don't want to get out of bed, no problem - the Hotel Le Lavoisier offers room service and arrives within ten minutes of your order. Don't spend your time rushing around Paris looking for a cafe in the morning - get it started right by eating in the adorable breakfast area or in your bed. One of the biggest advantages that the Hotel Le Lavoisier has is that it is really in the middle of everything - you are within walking distance of major shopping destinations (Champs-Élysées, Galeries Lafayette, etc.), all of the great art museums (The Lourve, Musée d'Orsay, etc.), and excellent dining options. If you are not a walking around Paris type, you are within 5-10 minutes of almost every major site in Paris with taxis readily available on the Boulevard Malesherbes. But the best part about Hotel Le Lavoisier's location is that it isn't in a touristy part of town - it is surrounded by shops, cafes, and is generally filled with Parisians going about their daily schedules. You never feel like you are among a gaggle of tourists when you step out the doors of the Hotel Le Lavoisier. Needless to say, the Hotel Le Lavoisier has always exceeded my expectations when I've stayed there, and that's why I keep coming back. There are not many places that I can say I still frequent twenty years later, and it's even more amazing for me to say that about a hotel halfway across the world. But the Hotel Le Lavoisier is just reliable - it's everything you want out of your Paris accommodations and more. If you want an authentic Parisian experience, stay at the Hotel Le Lavoisier. You will not regret it.
My husband and I stayed in this hotel for one night, and while it is located in a good location, the hotel is very rundown. Though it was a new exterior, the interior was very outdated, which is misleading. It could have been just our room (located on the 2nd floor), but it was not nice at all. I found two spiders in the bathroom, which was just awful. Additionally, when we were checking out, the front deskman was having a heated argument with a staff member that they then proceeded to continue outside on the street in front of the hotel. Would not recommend.
Just checked in and this is a nice quaint hotel well located in Paris. A 10 minute walk from where the airport bus dropped us off at the Opera. Check in was very pleasant and the staff excellent. Room is nice and clean.
Great value for a Parisian hotel. It has a pretty good location and the rooms are ok albeit a tad old and a tad small. It's my second visit and I can see myself going back if they maintain their good rates. It's the correct decision for a good rate and a good location, not if your looking for luxury, room service and amenities in general.
