This old Parisian hotel, earlier known as Hôtel des Croises, adapted the screen name given during a movie shoot. Hôtel Langlois is centrally located, close to the Gustave Moreau Museum and the Opera. Rooms with École de Nancy furniture are charmingly made up with antique paintings and sculpture. The overall environment is peaceful with soundproof windows, though the rear rooms receive less natural light. All three suites are plushly fit with modern amenities and large bathrooms. Breakfast is laid out in the lounge and available for an additional charge of EUR13.
The hotel is located on a (relatively) quiet street in the 9th arrondisement. Loved the very Parisian atmosphere of the rooms and lobby areas. The hotel is not 4-5 star luxury by any means. If you really want that, it'll cost you. To be honest, my wife and I decided we would rather spend our money on more important things in Paris. Though we usually stay at 4-5 star hotels, did not find the accommodations here to be a huge disappointment. Amenities and service are good .. but very basic. If you are just looking for a nice place to stay and want to be conveniently located to great Paris shopping and the Metro, this is the choice for you. The Hotel Langlois is probably one of the best hotel values you can find for your money in Paris.
The location of this hotel is wonderful. Since the Metro (the very useful and efficient subway system) is so important for travel in Paris, being close to a Metro station turns out to be a huge plus and the Hotel Langlois is less than 1 block from a Metro station -- the Trinité — d'Estienne d'Orves (a stop on the the dark green line 12). Since you may be lugging suitcases, this is wonderful.
The interior of the Langlois is very nice as well. Our room was on the ground floor. The room was quite small, as are many Paris hotel rooms in the moderate price range, but the very high ceilings, (maybe 14 feet high?) kept it from feeling claustrophobic. The room was clean. The furniture was pleasing. The roomy bathroom had old style fixtures including the ancient bathtub, but everything functioned perfectly and was spotless. The beds were comfortable. The owners keep this hotel in fine condition. Our window looked out onto a small but charming courtyard. Being on the first floor is a good idea. The "elevator" was an afterthought in this old hotel (installed within the existing swirl of staircase) and is likely the smallest one on the planet. And this is in a city with very small elevators.
Paris hotel-provided breakfasts are very convenient and "all you can eat" but they tend to be the same and are generally not a good value, perhaps 11 or 12 Euros each. The Hotel Langlois falls into this category. However, sometimes you want to just get up, get one of the free newspapers the hotel provides, and dive into some coffee and food. Eggs tend to be limited to soft-or-hard-boil-them-yourself, melons, cereals, pastries, sliced ham, and cheeses. It's not quite the omelets, two-over-light, hashbrowns, bacon and toast (and of course not grits) you may be used to, but it will get you started with no muss and no fuss.
The staff was exceptionally helpful and friendly.
Outside the hotel, you find yourself in a lively part of Paris. There are two or three cafes only steps away plus some good restaurants. Oddly enough, Paris is a city that turns in early at night. Restaurants, except for the outdoor cafes, seem to stop letting in customers around 10:00 p.m. The Metro stops running at 12:30 p.m., so you want to be sure to get home by about midnight. If you don't, you won't turn into a pumpkin, but you may end up walking a LONG way back to your hotel like we did twice by staying too late at the Eiffel Tower.
The thing is, Paris is 6 hours later than US time, so when you are ready for your 6:30 pm US dinner, everything except late night cafes have already been closed for 2.5 hours because it is 12:30 pm Paris time, so cafes are your dinner lifeline until you adjust (if you every do) to Paris time.
The Langlois was our favorite of the 3 hotels we stayed in during our visit to France. Oh, one last thing. You will love the remote control for the AC unit which is a small, but workable, device added high up on the wall long after this hotel was originally built. On the remote control, insead of a "high" setting, it says next to the button "Powerful." Cute.
We have been coming here for many years (since it was Hotel Des Croises). Never disappointed. Very quiet neighborhood, near to Metro. Beautiful view of Sacre Couer. Although people complain about the elevator we think it adds to the charm! Rooms are large by Parisian standards. Quaint and very French.
My wife and I stayed in the honeymoon suite in January for a week. The furniture was nice, the bed was comfortable, and the view of Sacre Couer was awesome. I admit the elevator is pretty old and sometimes stays on floors, so if you're on the top floor like where we were, expect a hike once in awhile up the staircase.
The continental breakfast was great (pastries, juice, fruit, yogurt, tea, coffee, etc)!
If you are a typical American, you like space in your hotel room. The Langlois offers space. It is very clean and because it has only a 2 star rating, the price is very good. The Paris Hotel ratings are based on a complex formula that includes ammenities offered by a hotel. This is my 5th trip trip Paris and I have stayed in a different hotel every time, ranging from the deluxe Meurice and Intercontintal to the Langlois. I think this hotel is a high 2 or a low 3 star. The negative is that the street noise is quite loud in the lower rooms on the street side. Also, noise from the hallway can interupt a good nights sleep if you are a lite sleeper. However, there are only 27 rooms so it't not like a lot of people are coming and going. The staff speaks English and is very polite. The decor is very nice. The wall, pictures and furniture are old French but the lighting, TV, Minibar, hotel soaps and shampoos are more like something purchased at Kmart. The bed and pillows are comfortable. No clocks in the room but wake up calls are avaiable. Breakfast is avaialbe for 9 euros in the hotel lobby but the serving room is very samll and quite warm. It includes patries (just OK), cereal, coffee or tea, juice, cheese and canned fruit cocktail. You can get a full American breakfast at one of the 4 Cafe's just around the corner in the main square. The cost is 12.50 and includes eggs, bacon, patatoes, bread, juice and coffee with toast.If you are used to a HOT shower you will need to get up early or shower quite late. We tried to shower at 9:00 and the water was only warm. The hotel is located less then 5 minutes from a metro stop. If you have never been to Paris, the Metro is your ticket to anywhere in the city. It is fast, cheap and easy to understand. If you are going to see the sights don't worry so much about the location of the tourist attraction as they are all just a few Metro stops away. Pick your hotel based on what you see or read on the internet.All in all this is a good hotel for a great price. A taxi ride from DeGualle Airport is 42 Euros. If you have 4 people you can ask for a large cab and it will likely cost a total of 50 Euros. You can also take the Roissy Bus which stops near the Paris Opera house. This is a short 10 to 15 minute walk to the hotel but if you have never been to Paris you might want to opt for the taxi as the streets are quite crowded and carrying luggage is a little tough. If you only have a backpack it's realy not a problem. Just ask for directions to Rue St Lazare.
My two sisters, my brother-in-law, my husband and I stayed at the Hotel Langlois in early November, 2004. My sister and her husband had a suite, we had a double and my other sister has a single. All three rooms in this small and charming hotel were larger than average (for Paris) and were decorated in gorgeous antiques. The rooms were spotless and quiet. We did not take advantage of the breakfast, but the breakfast room was sunny and cheerful.
The hotel is located in the 9th , with a metro stop about a block away, and just a few blocks from the big department stores on Blvd. Haussman. Prices, when we stayed there, ranged from 99 euros for the single to 135 euros for the suite. Although the location was not as convenient to many of the major tourist attractions as places I have stayed in the 5th and 6th, the metro system makes all of Paris convenient.
If you wish to see the hotel and some of the rooms, just rent a DVD! It is featured in �The Truth About Charlie� (the 2002 remake of �Charade�.) I would definitely stay at Hotel Langlois again. It was a lovely hotel and a very good value.
I stayed at Hotel Langois in April, 2005 during a trip to several countries in Europe. Using Trip Advisor to find this hotel, I made my reservations based on the positive feedback written by many. Upon arrival to the hotel, I was not disappointed. The price for the 3 nights that I stayed at the hotel was a lot cheaper than most other hotels that I researched, and still the quality was not sacrificed. My twin room was a decent size for a European hotel, I had a terrific view of the city from my window that faced the street, and the room was extremely clean. I don't speak French but luckily the front desk spoke excellent English to help me get around. Also, the hotel is just a few steps away from the Metro. Highly recommended for the value, service, and cleanliness. I would definitely stay here again!
