  • About the hotel

Since the French hotel industry is made up of a majority of 3-star hotels, and therefore of upper mid-range accommodations, the transition to a 4-star hotel represents an advantage in the hotel market, which is facing tough competition.

Le Littré: a 4-star hotel in Paris

Perfectly located, the hotel Le Littré Paris has recently had its 4-star certification renewed in March 2022. To ensure that tourists who come to enjoy a Parisian getaway for a weekend or for a long vacation, businessmen or regular customers enjoy maximum comfort, hotels are inspected by professionals in the sector.

The hotel establishment applies to an auditing firm of its choice, among those accredited by the French Accreditation Committee (COFRAC), which carries out the inspection. This voluntary classification is done at the request of the hotelier: a real guarantee of quality and reliability for its customers. Following the inspector’s visit, including a mystery visit for 4-star hotels, a grade is given according to a grid of criteria. This classification awards the number of stars and remains valid for a period of 5 years.

Between Montparnasse and Saint-Germain-des-Prés, a few meters from the Jardin du Luxembourg and the capital’s must-see tourist attractions, the Hotel Le Littré welcomes its guests with the comfort and facilities of a 4-star hotel in Paris.

Indeed, the awarding of the certification of a 4 star hotel is based on 3 main criteria:

-The quality and comfort of the equipment

-The quality of the services offered

-The good practices in terms of environment and reception of disabled people.

A 4 star hotel in Paris and a 4 star hotel in the world: what are the differences?

Although there are basic criteria common to all countries: room facilities, bathroom facilities, hotel services and catering, the level of service and comfort varies. To date, there is no international classification due to the economic, cultural and regulatory differences of each country. Standards and rules sometimes vary within these countries: Italy and Spain, for example, have a mandatory classification by region.

If you are used to staying in Asia, the level of comfort and service of a 4-star hotel is much higher than the French average. A 5 star hotel in Asia corresponds to the quality of service of a 4 star hotel in Paris. On the other hand, the European average is disparate. Balkan countries such as Croatia and Montenegro offer a lower quality of service and comfort for a similar category and level of standing.

In Egypt and Turkey, where there is no strict certification, hotels award themselves their number of stars. On the contrary, in Germany the star rating is controlled by a very strict organization, which makes a 4 star hotel very reliable and of high quality.

It is therefore important to compare the services and relaxation areas offered by the hotelier beforehand in order to choose the most suitable accommodation for your needs and desired standard. Reading the comments and reviews of guests who have stayed at a 4-star hotel is an excellent way to get an idea of the level of service offered.
