Fodor's Review

Scented candles and subdued lighting announce the blend of romance and contemplation designer-du-jour Jacques Garcia brought to the Hôtel Bourg Tibourg. A pocket garden has room for three tables, leafy plants, and a swath of stars above. Rooms are barely bigger than the beds, and every inch has been upholstered, tasseled, and draped in a cacophony of stripes, florals, and medieval motifs. Free Wi-Fi, loaner iPads, and flatscreen TVs are among the creature comforts. Royal-blue

walls and red velvet line the claustrophobic halls, and Byzantine alcoves hold mosaic-tile tubs.

Beautiful hotel, beautiful location

Love this place. The rooms are small but that is common. Gio was extremely friendly and helpful. Can't wait to come back.

Perfect, under certain circumstances

We just spent a night at the Hotel Bourg-Tibourg and loved it. It is, however, not for every traveler. On the plus side: the neighborhood is charming and central but not noisy, the bed was large and comfortable (and NOT one of those wretched 2 twins pushed together to be a pseudo-king!), the bathroom was plush and well-appointed, the breakfast was superb, the room and hotel in general were lovely, and the service was friendly. On the negative side:

the rooms are too small for anyone with more than one small suitcase, our tub was tucked into a nook so the shower was hand-held, and the rooms are not designed for a traveler who needs a desk -- basically, there's a bed and a TV and that's it. I believe that the previous reviewer with a lighting problem may not have realized that the non-mood light is on a complicated, European dimmer -- took me a while to figure out, but when I did, I had the opportunity to make the room dazzlingly bright -- no problem. In any event, the hotel was perfect for our needs -- pleasure travelers with only a small suitcase.

Beware of this property! I am a seasoned traveler--and usually believe the Red Michelin Guide when it rates a property in red (even a "simple" property such as the Bourg Tibourg). In this case Michelin really got it wrong. The hotel has been overdesigned to the point that there is no lighting in the rooms. I checked in after 4p in January and, with daylight still and a room facing the street--and with all lights on in the room--I had trouble seeing

to unpack. As it grew darker outside, the lighting got worse. One could not see to walk across the floor. There was no hope of reading; and I could not even see the keyboard on my computer. In addition, the "deluxe" room doesn't even have a chair--just a very uncomfortable low, small footstool. I called the manager and told her I was checking out. She first insisted on charging me for one night, but when I told her that, if she did, I would contest the charge, she backed down. I would not recommend the Bourg Tibourg to anyone. I moved to the Westin (the old Intercontinental) which had great lighting--and lots of room.
