About Villa Lutece Port Royal, Paris

A bookish boutique hotel in a quiet Left Bank location

Literary Left Bank
Villa Lutèce Port-Royal faces a small garden square in an untouristy part of the 13th arrondissement. This book-themed boutique hotel is just a 10-minute walk from the Jardin des Plantes, and the atmospheric, ancient streets and student bars of the Latin Quarter.

Live like a Parisian
The hotel offers the experience of real, lived-in, cosmopolitan Paris at the street markets on Place Jeanne d'Arc and Boulevard Vincent-Auriol. South of Place d'Italie, you can take a trip to the Far East with the Asian restaurants and tower blocks of Chinatown.

Ode to literary Paris
Framed manuscripts and writing etched on glass doors set the scene for this literary-themed, smoke free, boutique hotel, which pays homage to Paris's studenty Left Bank. The colorful salon, with its striking modern fireplace, is a relaxed place for a drink.

Graphic design
Standard guestrooms are cozy and comfortable, with graphic fabrics, and striking black-and-white tiled bathrooms. There are also 9 duplexes, which are great if you're traveling with children or are here for a longer stay. Free WiFi is available in all rooms.

I think this hotel needs to be updated. The staff was very friendly and nice and was very helpful! The room was clean but very outdated. The rug needs to be replace and cleaned! The bed was hard and not so comfortable. There was no AC the whole 6 days we stayed. I wasn't able to change hotels because I had Pre paid in advance. The room was small and the some of the walls did have holes.

Great stay, definitely recommend
Very helpful service, clean and very comfortable room. Good wifi as well, which is always nice to have. Not necessarily around much in the surrounding neighborhood, but close to 3 subway stops so getting around Paris was super easy. Absolutely recommend.

It was a great price and fairly decent location. Very close to the Metro station and only one transfer to downtown Paris - about 20 min away. There was a little grocery store around the corner which was perfect to pick up snacks and items for a continental breakfast in our room. I'd wished there were a better selection of restaurants close but there weren't. I'd also wished there were a coffee shop/pastry shop close so as to grab something as we headed out for the day but none to be found - had to go in a little further into town for that. The room was so adorable! Super cute bathroom and I was absolutely in love with the window that opened like a french door! in the room. Super french! I loved the tub and shower - worked perfectly. I took a tub every night after a long day of sight seeing and it was perfect. We stayed in a queen bed room. Very small room but perfect for the time we were there and price. We were there to sleep only and gone all day. The mattress was sloped so it killed my back.

Very nice comfortable & private hotel. The staff are really great and willing to help anything & anytime. Location is very good nearby metro.I was really pleased with my spacious connected rooms which were well decorated & clean. Breakfast was Okay not too diverse no vegetables at all but a nice pastry.

Horrible, and never again
HORRIBLE! Nothing worked in our room, bed was stiff, no outlets, room was SMALL. A Standard double could barely fit me and one other person. When complained they told us "sorry but the hotel manager was out for a week and there was nothing they can do!" Had to find a new hotel.
