    Another Charming Ile St. Louis Hotel

    by

    We reserved a double room since September 2005 and six months in advance to reserve a room is actually not unusual for the Ile St. Louis hotels of which the Des Deux Iles is one of. We stayed at their related hotel, the Hotel de Lutece, which is located up the street. So we got a chance to compare and contrast the two hotels.

    All in all the Deux Iles is another small, homey hotel with unpretentious room furnishings. In fact, one could say that the furnishings are basic yet the rate of 170 euro for a double room is anything but basic. You pay for location as the Ile St. Louis which is very busy in the daytime gets quiet during nighttime around 8 p.m. So if you stay on the island it's sort of like your private island so to speak.

    Anyway, the staff were polite and efficient but not as friendly as the Hotel de Lutece's staff. The senior receptionist made a mistake in noting down that our bus pickup for Brugge would be at 6:15 a.m. However, it was 30 minutes too soon. As such we hurried down to find a darkened lobby. We even awoke the night clerk and he mumbled in French/English something like it was not allowed to turn on the lobby lights that early. That sounded stupid to us as we are paying guests and to let guests sit in a darkened lobby is not hospitable. Luckily there was a hallway light otherwise we would be in total darkness. The breakfast staff were polite and efficient also but not friendly as the Hotel de Lutece's breakfast attendant.

    Unique Quality: The double room (#332) was one of four rooms facing the street. The room itself was very small with a foyer, closet, TV on a floor stand, and a desk and chair beyond the TV in a corner opposite from the bed. There were two small glass end tables also. The bath was equipped with a shower and had a large pedestal sink and a regular hair dryer not the vacuum cleaner type so that was good. The shower needs to be renovated as it's pretty old and is showing signs of mildew. Otherwise the faucet is modernized-maybe five years old or so. It's weird as the shower points towards the sliding shower door so you have to make sure to close the door partly (it folds up in 3 sections) or you risk wetting up the floor and toilet. The walls, as is typical, are too thin. One early morning another guest woke me up with his booming voice which sounded as though he were standing in the room. You can hear everything!

    Breakfast is downstairs in the stone cellar which is not laid out properly-a bit chaotic-as there are two sofas and a coffee table near the fireplace or three round glass tables with chairs. You just select whichever is unoccupied to eat your 11 euro Continental breakfast (one each croissant and baguette), fresh o.j., and coffee/tea/chocolat chaud, butter, jam, and milk.

    Hotel de Charme

    by

    This hotel is located in the middle of Ile St Louis, 5 min walk from Notre Dame. So it is close to Quartier Latin and le Marais.
    It is classified "hotel de charme" (charming hotel) but I must confess it is not a real label, rather a club.
    It has 17 rooms small but comfortable.
    No private parking but you can find a parking lot 2 rue Geoffroy l'Asnier.
    It has air conditionning.
    In Summer, the street is very busy and noisy.

    Unique Quality: 3 stars
    Double rooms : 126 to 158 euros per room tax include except "taxe de sejour" (1 e per capita)
    Breakfast : 10 e per capita.
    An affordable accomodation for a great location.

    Directions: On Ile St Louis.
    Metro : Pont Marie

    OK. Ish

    Oh dear. I hope my bf doesn't read this. He booked it for a surprise weekend for my birthday. Now, we've agreed he's in charge of flights and I'm in charge of hotels. It's not that there was anything especially wrong. Just - for the price he paid, it could have been a whole load more right.
    Basically, you're paying for the location on the Deux Iles. Just as you do if you go pretty much anywhere on the islands. The rooms are very small, and the bathrooms tiny. If you're any taller than 4ft 8, don't even think about having a bath. We booked a double, but were given twin beds, and the staff very grumpily said we couldn't change but the beds would be made up 'a l'italian' - i.e. with a double sheet stretched tight across the two beds.
    We didn't bother trying breakfast so I can't report on it.

    Unique Quality: The best bit was the 'medieval' restaurant next door. Lovely old building with blackened beams and a wonderful boeuf bourgignon.

Don't know about hotels there, but the Ile St-Louis is as about as central as it gets.

Its great location and the ambience is perfect.

Try the Hotel des Deux-Iles at 58 Rue St. Louis en Ile. Call or write well in advance the place is VERY popular.

If you do stay there (or even if you don't) make sure to have an ice cream at Berthillon (#31 on the same street).

Ile St. Louis is a dream full of history and romantic settings. I know of a friend who rents out her cute apartment for short term rentals. E-mail her and I am sure that she will be more than willing to e-mail you pics and if not to help you find that perfect flat.

Tell her Andrea sent you.

Happy Honey Moon!

Re: Honeymoon: Ile st.-Louis or elsewhere

Yes it is!! Alot of people have recommended this small island on the Seine as a most romantic area in Paris.
In addition to the Hotel des Deux Iles try its sister hotel, Hotel de Lutece.
I've read unfavorable comments about Hotel de Jeu du Paume which is on the island too. It is overpriced for the value.
Remember, however, that Deux Iles and Lutece have very small rooms.
