Hôtel du Lys, Paris

Compact but charming, in a great location
Hotel de Lys is a converted ancient residence, with guest rooms filling every available cranny, a narrow spiral staircase, & an elevator that only fits 1 person + 1 suitcase at a time. Lovely old oak beams, antique furniture & paintings, & a charming decor make up (mostly) for lack of space. Breakfast, served in the dining room & hall, consists of juice, excellent coffee, & real French croissants & baguettes so good they didn't need the fresh butter & mini-pots of confiture that came with them. Plus this hotel is just a couple of blocks from the Odeon & Saint-Michel Metro stops (easy to reach from almost anywhere), & a short walk from the Seine, Notre Dame, & the Musee du Luxembourg, among others. Very helpful staff, too. I would definitely stay here again.

Historic means tiny rooms lacking comfort....
Beware: the rooms do not all look like those pictured on the listing. We checked in to find our room was like a cell in a monastery, TINY, with barely room to walk around the bed (which was very uncomfortable/hard). Unlike those shown in the listing, our room was austere with very little decor and poor lighting. I think it would maybe be OK for one person if you didn't plan on spending any time in the room...We were told that we "should have booked a superior" if we wanted the one shown in the listing, but that wasn't clear at all when we booked. I saw one of those rooms when a door was open across the hall, looked much nicer (at least bigger/decorated). The front desk clerk was not friendly or helpful (scowling), and would not move us to a different room and would not refund our prepaid reservation. Luckily, we called and arranged for the refund and to move to a different hotel nearby for the next night. FYI the hotel has a retrofitted elevator which would make anyone even slightly claustrophobic panic -- it's barely wide as a man's shoulders, fits one person and suitcases. I recommend taking the stairs! A basic breakfast of coffee or tea w croissants was served in the lobby in the a.m. The neighborhood is good, easy access to metro stations and the Seine.

Room was a bit dated, but it was comfortable and clean. The included breakfast was simple but tasty (croissants, baguette, coffee or tea). Made it easy to get going quick in the morning. On a quiet side street but close to the Latin Quarter and St. Germain, so lots of stuff going on there. Tiny elevator, nice big windows to open up and cool the place off at night. There was an air conditioner but we didn't use it.
