  • A friendly visit to do when we're close. I'd not on purpose because I'm not a fan of Victor Hugo, but it is still a place full of emotion and my 8 year old son was very happy to see the desktop on which party he wrote les Misérables ;-)

  • An interesting visit if you are interested in Victor Hugo, less so perhaps if you are not. Several rooms of art, furniture and photos with a link to the writer, poet and political activist. There is a...  more »
  • The conference visit to discover the House in the company of an expert teacher, passionate and very friendly. The House looks so differently: through the history of France and Paris, through the tragedies of the Hugo family and through (see anagrams) hidden details which escape the stealth visit. Very suitable for families. Note: the friendly staff.

  • If you want to know more about the man behind Les Miserables, this is the place to go to. You won't find much about th musical, but you will get tidbits about his fabulous life and crucial role in the French Revolution. Admission is free.
  • A must when in Paris! Victor Hugo's Parisian home is definitely worth a visit. The oversized apartment is filled with Hugo treasures, his bedroom, unique furnishings, artwork and more. The park like surroundings of Places des Vosges, Paris' oldest square, add to the atmosphere. There's a boulangerie at the corner of the square, which is ideal for coffee and croissants. For a souvenir, visit the gift shop on the ground level.
  • this place is wonderful! not many people seem to know or visit this museum but the place had so many things to see inside. It was really nice to get a sneak peak into Victor Hugo's collections and furniture. The rooms inside the apartment are reconstructed based on historical data and it was interesting to see how well people reconstructed the space based on data. Even though I only visited the free part of the exhibition, it was so worth visiting. It would have been definitely more interesting if I had done some research about Victor Hugo before visiting. Taking a look at 'place de vosges' is also a must here!
  • This place was a great place to stay: quiet, comfortable and close to transport, shops and attractions. It was clean and well appointed, and meticulously maintained. There was nothing to dislike about the place. It really was a great experience, and the owners were most helpful. Could not recommend this place more
  • Love this place... Love Victor Hugo. Can feel his spirit in this place!

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
