Very good location, 10 minutes walk to Montparnasse and Denfert-Rochereau stations for direct access to the airports and Versailles. Quiet, yet colorful neighborhood, very good value for Paris. Delicious breakfast with bio products, free bicycles for guests, wonderful little garden. Cozy, simple, clean and comfortable room. Interesting ecological concept.

Perfect location, simple and clean, nice staff. Only negative is that it is noisy but for the price I would recommand it. They eneven have free bikes for customers to explore Paris if you feel like a ride!

My husband and I stayed at Solar Hotel for 8 nights on our first trip to Paris. It was small but so cute and worth the 89 Euro price. Staff was also awesome and friendly. When I am fortunate enough to go back, we will stay at Solar hotel again

Don't expect a rich&luxurious hotel, but I guess you didn't expect that given the price. Now, if you expect a friendly place, with efforts for being eco-friendly, a very good breakfast (organic products only), this is your hotel. The place is close to subway, in an animated district (many affordable restaurants at walking distance).

Great place with an excelent location near the subway and the train. Confortable beds and simple but good breakfast. We stay on the other building that has free wifi on the room and we like it very much. The only problem was the small bathroom but the rest was fantastic

I stayed in this hotel with my wife and 3 adult kids (19, 19 & 21) for 2 nights. The room was very very basic, but clean. The price was very reasonable, compared to the cost of most hotels in Paris. Good location in the Latin Quarter, short walk to subway and bus service to Orly airport. Nice neighborhood. Included... More

This place was disappointing as I had booked this hotel after reading multiple reviews. I'll not term it as a hotel, its a bed & breakfast. Rooms are very small, breakfast: average (was difficult to eat the same thing daily). Good Points: Close to metro station, great neighbourhood, safe place. Staff is helpful

Solar Hotel is wonderfully located - less than five minute walk to Denfert Rochereau and sites in Paris are literally a metro ride away. The room is clean and simple, neighborhood is safe and there is a great market on the street. The staff are cheerful and able to communicate in English to varying levels. The breakfast is great -...

I stayed here for 4 days in the last week of July. Very good location (5min walk to tube and 5min to catacombes). clean rooms and cordial staff; always ready to help with everything. the only glitch was they did not operate the aircon properly so the room was a heater given the weather. but def a good hotel :)

Staying in Montparnasse

Neighborhood Profile
Montparnasse
The namesake tower of Montparnasse dominates over the landscape but the fun part is the throbbing life that goes on below it. Bright lights, busy cinemas, brasseries and diners encompass hidden museums and parks to entertain the masses. Long avenues lead away from the tower to take you to unsuspecting places and historical monuments and treasures. In between lie adorable ivy-covered houses with beams and small gardens to match. Just a short metro ride away from the center of Paris this neighborhood has something for every hour of the day.
