Polite and friendly staff. Complimentary evening drink is a nice touch. Great location, we walked to the catacombs. Only slight negative was occasionally hearing upstairs occupants walking on the hard floors. Would stay again.

Reflecting on the best experiences last year, my time in Paris at the Louison is near the top. This historic hotel was the anchor of my trip full of quiet streets, discovering interesting homes that are now museums off the tourist track, and the enjoyment of wonderful dinners in the neighborhood surrounding the hotel (recommended by the Louison guest reception...

I stayed in this hotel for my first trip to Paris in May 2016 and I was very pleased. The room was small but the layout was good. I never had to ask for additional towels or cleaning. The common areas were very stylish and cozy. The location was great!. It was just a short walk to the train station...

This hotel was a refreshing alternative from a typical Sheraton-type establishment. Our room was small but cozy and well appointed. The location, near Gare Montparnasse, provided a perfect base to explore Paris. Breakfast was scrumptious and happy hour d'oeuvres was a nice touch to kick start a splendid Parisian nightlife. A shout out to staff (Pierre + the breakfast guy)...

I am so pleased I found the Louison. Historical place, the staff was genuinely super friendly, it is so close to the train station, even with relatively heavy luggage, it is reachable by foot, not true with most other affordable hotels there. As price vary I hope I can go back all the time I go to Paris, 2 to...

We thoroughly enjoyed this charming hotel where we stayed in a Prestige room December 8-11, 2016. The stylish common areas were beautifully decorated for the season during our visit, and our recently renovated room was sufficiently spacious with clean lines, tasteful décor, and a red toile accent wall. The handsome breakfast room doubles as a game and conversation area, and...

My wife and I stayed here from two nights in December before moving onto Germany. We took advantage of a special early booking offer which brought the price down dramatically.

This hotel is in a quiet street off Boulevard du Montparnasse.

Chose this hotel based on the mostly positive reviews. Upon checking in, although I was supposedly given a renovated "Prestige" room, the room itself was tired (peeling wallpaper, chipped paint, chipped furniture), the bathroom was unacceptable (mildew in shower grout + old carpet), the lighting was terrible with all of the curtains opened, and it was right next to the...

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

Neighbourhood Profile
In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops, ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants. Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine art school and small museums hide in unassuming squares. The neighbourhood’s namesake church is the oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented musicians every weekend. The Luxembourg Gardens house the national senate, splendid lawns and flourishing flower beds. Famous faces and bourgeois Parisians frequent Saint Germain accompanied by the students of Rue Saint Guillaume and Rue des Saints-Pères. This is a neighbourhood where afternoon people-watching from a café or playing cards in a brasserie are a key part of the daily fabric.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Situated between Saint Germain des Pres and Montparnasse, the Hotel LOUISON is a chic hotel in the centre of Paris. With nineteenth century furniture, cherry and chestnut tones on the walls, marble floors and a courtyard garden, the Aviatic captures the spirit of the Left Bank in every detail. The hotel was constructed in 1856 to welcome the painters, sculptors and writers who would go on to put the Latin quarter at the very heart of European culture. This cultural heritage is present even in the bedrooms. Tastefully decorated, they generate a feeling of calm and a sensual ambiance. The charming, multilingual staff are always available to provide you with help and advice. They will be happy to offer local insight on art galleries, museums and the area's famous pavement cafes. ... more   less
