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.
The location of the hotel is excellent as it is a short walk from Saint Augustin (close to Theatre district), but also reachable within 8 mins walk from Saint Lazare, which has several metro lines. Once you arrive at the hotel, you are greeted by a building that gives off a wonderful Parisien vibe from the outside but then becomes disappointing on the inside due to is dull interior. The staff were friendly and did their best to make you feel welcome which was appreciated. The room we were allocated was on the 5th floor and it was clean and comfortable and tastefully decorated, with 2 sets of French doors that opened up to the road below, whereby a little road noise could be heard, but nothing to disturb your stay. Although the bathroom was a little compact, it had all of the amenities to make the stay relaxed and enjoyable. After a day of sightseeing, the room provided a little sanctuary and made the journey to your preferred night spot easy due to its location. It is clear that this hotel will appeal to many, but not all, however I would certainly recommend it to those who have not been to Paris before, due to it proximity within St Augustin.
We were in Paris for the Paris Air Show. We needed a quality hotel at a reasonable price that was centrally located. Hotel Lavoisier fit the bill. The management especially Ludwig and Vannessa know their job and are very professional. We had the junior suite which is located on the first floor adjacent to the lobby. Spacious and very comfortable. The bathroom was amazing. Lots of room and great water pressure. The only comment is that the toilet is too close to the wall. The location is great. Walking distance to Gare Saint Lazare. I would certainly come back. My only comment is that they could expand the breakfast a bit.
How they got that 4 stars rank, that it is a mystery to me. To explain: Everything is old and decaying. Do not need to look at details as is obvious; from furnishing, plugs, doors, everything looks old and worn. The size of the rooms. They are 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 those as well. Room service? Do not expect that as is not present. And it is mandatory for four star ranking. Breakfast, is a joke. And you pay for that. An attendant will bring you a small croissant, a gall 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. To top the bill, I had reservation with breakfast included, but on check-in the receptionist told me, quite arrogantly that was not included. Has to actually put the reservation voucher under his eyes. And then, he agreed like he was doing me some big favor. Recommendation: be wise and stay away.
If you want a rich Parisian experience with a convenient location at a reasonable price, I highly recommend this hotel. You'll be right by a metro stop and a Monoprix grocery store. Your room will be quiet, stylish and quaint. The staff were very accommodating and helpful during our stay, helping us to purchase Eurodisney tickets. This will be our home for our next trip!
We have now stayed here on two occassions, in 2013 and 2017. Some of the staff from the first visit remembered us in 2017 which is a nice touch. This is a really pleasant hotel with good clean rooms in a great area. There is a good lift to all levels and the rooms are very quiet and dark with shutters closed. The are two Metro stations close by and Gare St Lazare is a short walk away. The Roissy Bus from CDG stops at Opera and is about a 10 minute walk pulling a bag along. It's just a short walk past Madelaine, through Place Vendome to Place de la Concorde for a bit of early morning exercise before the streets get busy. There are 2 tabacs quite close for some authentic French culture of a coffee in the morning and a Ricard in the evening. But back to Lavoisier, the staff are top shelf, really helpful and very good English spoken.
This is the forth time we've stayed at this hotel and every time they did not disappoint. Great hotel for couples and family. It's in a safe area and most of the sites are within walking distance. The rooms are clean and the staff are very helpful and friendly.
Just returned from a three night stay in above hotel, we found all the staff very friendly and welcoming. The room was very clean and well maintained, we would have appreciated having tea and coffee facilities in the room. If we had prior knowledge we would have taken a travel kettle with us. Initially we found the breakfast a little lacking but when we looked at cafes nearby it wasn't such bad value and decided to stay in the hotel for breakfast. I would recommend this hotel if want to get away from the large impersonal establishments.
We enjoyed staying at Lelavoisier for three nights. It is nicely renovated and gives a cosy feeling. The room was clean and fresh; The bathroom small but well equipped. Breakfast is in the basement, so a bit dark and it can be somewhat crowded, but the food is certainly ok.
Such an updated quaint boutique hotel in central Paris. Within a moderate walking distance to all the must see locales. We came into Paris by train we were able to find our Hotel quite easily in the 8th arrondissement of Paris. The front entrance to the hotel is elegant and that feel did not end once we entered the room. Fresh hardwood floors, comfortable bed and a tranquil bathroom setting made the stay very enjoyable. Will look this place up again anytime when going back to Paris. Thank you Hotel le Lavoisier! If this review is helpful give me a thumbs up and read my other reviews. Looking forward to seeing if the things I like are similar to other travelers out there!
