For our recent trip to Paris, we stayed 5 nights at Hotel Le Littre. We really enjoyed our time at the hotel and to be honest, it was the best experience I have had at an Hotel. I have never felt so welcome and at home. The great location with wonderful rooms, a delicious breakfast and an attentive and welcoming staff made it hard to leave.
We arrived at the Charles De Gaulle Airport and made our way to the hotel by train. It was strait forward according to Google Maps it was only about 10 extra minutes to take the train than to drive and saved us 50 Euros.
The hotel is located in a conveniently in an easily assessable locations just a short walk from the Montparnasse building. It is fairly simple to get from the hotel to all the typical Paris sites and even to Versailles. Within a 30 min walking distance you can make it to the Notre Dame cathedral, Musee D’orsey and in about 35 minutes you can get to the Eiffel Tower. The hotel is just a short 1 or 2 minute walk to the metro station that can get you pretty much anywhere.
The hotel has been family owned for three generations with the son and daughter of the owner currently working at the hotel. There are 90 recently remodeled rooms available in total on 8 floors. The common areas have recently been renovated while also creating a courtyard area.
The rooms were very cozy and well decorated with a fresh feel. Our room was one of the five suites available with a private balcony and an absolutely stunning view of the Eiffel tower. We would just sit on our balcony and look around paris in the mornings and when we returned for the night, watching the tower sparkle.
When we arrived, we had done a terrible job planning for this part of the trip. We simply did not have the time to plan this leg of our trip! To make planning easier they have an app you can use with all sorts of tourist information including recommended tour providers and an interactive map. The hotel staff are also willing to help you plan your stay. we had several people assist us during our stay to decide what to do for our time in Paris.
For food and drinks, there is a small bar with a cocktail special each week. Breakfast is included and honestly was another hotel highlight. It was great waking up each morning to enjoy
chocolate crescents and normal crescents with some jam among other things. These everyday crescents in France were so much flakier then what you find in the US. There is a selection of juices, coffee service, meats, cheeses, fruit salad, cereal, yogurt and I am sure I am forgetting something.
During the recent renovation they created a sauna room that we tried out. All you have to do is schedule your time 30 minutes before you want to use it and it will be ready for you. Another small delight was the
ironing room. I know this is so minimal, but usually hotels have cheap irons in the rooms. When I went to iron some clothes here it was literally the best iron I have ever used. If you need to print off boarding passes or tickets, there are 2 computers available to use.
A huge thank you to Hotel Le Littre for their generous hospitality. While we were paying guest at the hotel, they did provide us with a complementary room upgrade.
