The three-star Palais Bourbon is an elegant Parisian hotel with modern touches in the diplomatic quarter of Paris, just a few minutes from the Musée d’Orsay, Rodin Museum and Invalides.
We’ve recommended the Palais Bourbon for many years. In late 2009, the hotel underwent extensive renovations that transformed it from an old-fashioned two-star hotel to a swankier three-star property. Rates, unfortunately, were transformed accordingly.
Pros: Rooms are equipped with numerous amenities and high ceilings. Breakfast included in room rate.
Cons: Rates are much too high to be considered "Cheapo."
The 27 non-smoking rooms are outfitted with light floral wallpaper and bedspreads, hardwood floors and oriental rugs. Rooms are equipped with elegant wooden furniture, a flat-screen TV, minibar and a coffee/tea service. Bathrooms are nicely tiled, equipped with showers or bathtubs (most with a bathtub/shower combo), and all have hair dryers.
Typical of the historic aristocratic mansions of the neighborhood, the Palais Bourbon has high ceilings that add to the spacious feel of the rooms. On the ground floor, a large breakfast room and lounge overlook the street. Space downstairs in the vaulted stone cellar is reserved for meetings.
The top floor annex has larger rooms that sleep three to five people. While certainly more spacious in terms of square footage, the mansard roof means lower ceilings.
Breakfast is included in the room rate. Throughout the hotel, Wi-Fi is available free of charge.

Invalides, Paris, France
About the Hôtel du Palais Bourbon neighborhood
The Invalides, a stately part of town, is ideally situated along the Seine's left bank, just east of the Eiffel Tower. Like neighboring St. Germain des Pres, the area is an upscale residential neighborhood with expensive shopping and dining. Don't look for any wild nightlife here. The area is within walking distance of all of central Paris and is well-served by the Metro and bus systems.
