Great hotel in an excellent location

I'd not been to Paris for about 6 years and Hotel Lumen really made this trip special.
I've stayed in quite a few lower and mid-priced Paris hotels over the years and always been disappointed by them.
However, this mid-price hotel was pretty outstanding - very good, central location. The Louvre, Place Vendome, Tuilieries Gardens, Palais Royal, Paris Opera etc are a few minutes walk away... To my surprise, I didn't use the metro this trip at all. The sun was shining and walking around Paris was amazing, even the longer walks I took! Rooms were spotless, stylish, a decent size and with very comfortable beds (a cancelled flight meant another night and I headed straight back to the Lumen, this time to a different room). There is some wear and tear, but they are traditional high-ceilinged rooms so it added rather than detracted to the overall experience.
Breakfast was included - buffet, but extensive choice and faultless re quality and freshness.
Staff are friendly and highly professional. In fact, they reminded me of staff in some so-called 'posh' hotels I have stayed in, but without the snooty aloofness - perfect.
I would definitely recommend this hotel.
