Hotel Le Littre in The City of Lights
Paris is one of my favorite destinations we visited while traveling Europe in 2018. I like to explore new cities without looking back, but Paris is one that I will definitely be returning to. It probably helped that our hotel felt centrally located, the staff spoke great English, and it wasn’t bad on the eye either.
We arrived and were greeted with polite staff who spoke English very well. I’ve got to say, this was my first trip to a county that didn’t speak English or Spanish, so I was a little worried about the language barrier. They put me to ease by explaining everything and provided some helpful insight on things to see/do around the hotel. The bellhop was attentive and polite guiding us to our room then brought all our luggage up (and let’s be real, I TOTALLY overpacked).
At this point we were traveling and living out of our suitcases for four days so I was pleasantly surprised when we were introduced to our room. It was open, spacey, and had a private terrace. The bed was soft and the breeze and soft ambient noises from the open terrace made us sleep like babies.
Maybe one of the best parts of the room is the floor length mirror with ample lighting for getting ready <— ladies, you never realize how important this is until you don’t have it! I set up shop in the entry way by the mirror between the room and the bathroom and made my husband just step over everything, because obviously my hair and makeup set-up is more important.
Paris was our second city in Europe and the first city we visited had a very small bathroom with a narrow, stand up shower only. So you can imagine how thankful we were to have this spacious bathroom with a full bath and shower combo. And bonus- we used the rack in the back of the shower to hang our clothes to steam wrinkles out of them while the water was running hot. #winning
The Whole Package
Hotels in big cities don’t always have space for “extras” but Hotel Le Littre did not disappoint. On the main two floors they have a bar, veranda, courtyard, breakfast room, and sauna for guests to enjoy.
Until this Europe trip, I didn’t realize how important it is to me to have a veranda or lounge area in a hotel. Whether it’s when we were waiting for a taxi, grabbing a drink before heading out for the night, or even just wanting to get caught up on emails and social media in a different setting than our hotel room, their veranda/lounge was perfect for it. And so pretty!
And, I mean, who doesn’t love an abstract wall like this in a bar?!

If you’re active and don’t mind walking a few blocks, you can do and see a lot without paying for a taxi. We walked to The Louvre and back with no problems — other than the little bit of rain — and around the city to different cafes and shops. One word of advice when walking back to Hotel Le Littre, once you turn down the street the hotel is on, LOOK for it… we may have a passed it a few times when we weren’t paying attention.
