Hotel rooms need to be updated but otherwise a great hotel
The hotel was as expected, quiet, comfortable and reasonable for Paris. Location is reasonable convienent.
We loved the location of Villa Luxembourg. It was close to many Metro stops (Vavin, Raspail etc.), and it was also within close walking distance to the Luxembourg Gardens and Catacombs. It was a great area to just walk in and explore all the shops and had great restaurants. The trip into the more central part of Paris was very quick via Metro. Staff were friendly. We loved our little kitchenette which helped us to save money because we ate most of our dinners and breakfasts in our room because we could buy food. Of course we did splurge sometimes on nice breakfasts, lunches and dinners out. The TV did not work, although in the end that didn't matter because we spent alot of time just talking and planning out our next days activities. The first few days there was a leak in the ceiling near the door/kitchenette, which we noticed only happened after we showered...but that eventually went away. But we think that maybe there is a leak connected to either the shower/tub and/or sink in the bathroom because there were continuosly little wet spots in the rug on the floor that kept coming up throughout our 2 week stay....there were more wet spots when we left than when we arrived.....this contributed to a musty/mouldy smell ....but we could opent he window, and we weren't there for large periods of time. There is also an interesting smell in all the hallways which my guess is that the entire hotel over time has been having leaks etc, mould, and perhaps they are trying to mask the smell with something else? All in all, we enjoyed our stay, we'd stay there again, just not in room 204....perhpas another room will have less leaking problems?
Poorly working air conditioning. First room, not at all, second room, barely. Glass shelves on bathroom mirror broken off, drains and shower heads poorly working. Exhaust fans in bathroom not working.
The first room we were given was very small, and bathroom was not clean (alot of mildrew on wall grout). We had requested a change of room. The next morning we were able to move to a larger cleaner room. Was pleased with 2nd accommodations, except bed in 2nd room was not as comfortable as 1st room. But it was a small tradeoff.
