Recent guest reviews

This has become our go-to place when we stay in Paris. My husband and I have stayed here several times before. This time I was a solo traveller in Paris. I felt very safe. The location is excellent so it is possible to walk to so many must-do sights. The staff are very friendly and helpful. We will be back.

My wife and I stayed at the Le Lavoiser hotel between 31/3/2018 and 3/4/2018. The hotel is an ideal location for sight seeing in Paris. Everything is within walking distance and there is a metro station a short walk from the hotel. The hotel itself was ideal for a short break. My wife and I stayed on a bed and breakfast basis. The booking in procedure was very simple. The room itself was compact. It had a comfortable double bed and a small , but well stocked bathroom complete with shower and bath. The room was clean, and was serviced every day. Wen you are in Paris for a few days you literally are just sleeping in the room. The breakfast at the hotel was a traditional French breakfast. if you required cooked eggs and Bacon there was an additional charge. However the breakfast fayre on offer was ideal. Lots of tea and coffee! The staff at the hotel were very friendly and professional. They were always at hand to give directions and advice. I would highly recommend this hotel if you are planning a sight seeing visit to Paris.

Stayed here in 2015 - how time flies as I remembered it like it was yesterday. Free internet now and it’s good internet too. Can’t find fault with this hotel at all. Perfect location, good clean room, lots of places to eat in vicinity, would thoroughly recommend this hotel. Ludovic and his team - great job and thank you.

The hotel can use some TLC- it is a bit rundown. Paint will do wonders. The location is not bad. The room is on the small side, not enough towels, need to be painted to give it a new lease on life. The people it the front desk are not friendly, not helpful either. I wouldn’t recommend this hotel.

We retuned to this Hotel for the France Slam 6 Nations match in March. The booking process and room allocation went well, and our room was just as shown on their web site. The reception Team were polite and helpful, but they had a temp lady on for breakfast who served up burnt bacon without a Bonjour or even a smile. The breakfast used to be quite good, but sadly this time it was very limited to a few croissants and poor cereal choice. No fresh fruit. The bathroom had a ceiling tile hanging down, which although reported was not sorted out. Although the Hotel claims to be Non-smoking there are ash trays in the bedrooms.... Would we return? - probably due to its excellent location and the Hotel itself is quite stylish, but just starting to look a little tired.

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.
