My boyfriend and I (ages 20 and 22) stayed here for four nights on our vacation to Paris. We got a really good deal and couldn't have been happier with our stay! The staff was very friendly and the room was very basic, but for the price we got it was expected. Since we were in Paris with so much... More

Hotel is in a great location, a short walk to Montparnasse station, lots of cafes and street life. BUT, no air-con, no fan, so in summer there is a choice between slowly baking with windows closed, or no sleep due to late night street noise. And I mean LATE! While the room was a tiny box, it was not cheap,... More

The staff was nice. The room was "OK" (small but expected for Paris at this price; the bathroom sink and shower sucked though). The room was clean but again, the bathroom could have used a scrub. The location is very nice. Metro is a 2 minute walk and lots of restaurants around. The sum total was a good deal and... More

Don't think that price determines quality. 130 euro gets you a bed . Clean but basic. I only booked this as it was a late booking and I needed to get the train from montparnase next day. You have to use the local cafes for food which ain't a bad thing.

I have visited this hotel with 2 of my friends and we stayed only one night. Everything was okay but the directors attitude. I didn't appreciate the way he addressed me. If we are young it doesn't mean we are alcoholic addict and it doesn't mean we are going to scream the whole night and wake everybody up. Instead of... More

I booked a twin room on line and the first message I received was that the credit card does not work. This was 3 days before I was to check in. There is only a double bed if I want. This was the first hurdle at the hotel. Upon check in the room was absolutely small for 2 persons .The... More

expensive for what it is, and outside my window a generator appeared to be running until about 3 in the morning?! Reasonably well located, but the hotel rooms are very small and a bit tatty - the carpet was ripped in several places.

I waited too long before making reservations for Paris last year, I accepted this. I used to live in Paris and so did not need a hotel. After that I would stay with friends so I really did not know what to watch out for. It is reasonably well located in the 14th. and across the street from a metro... More

If you look at the negative reviews you will learn that the rooms are small, the bathroom smaller, and the staircase steep and narrow with no lift. All true. BUT the location is EXCELLENT - Gare Montparnasse, Montparnasse Bienvenue Metro station, and the Edgar Quinet Metro station are all immediately at hand. Virtually next door is a Monoprix; very handy... More

Stayed in this hotel one night. One thing was nice, a little 'balcony' adjacent to my room at the 2nd floor. However, the room was not very clean. Shower was broken, Safety box didn't work. Door to 'balcony' couldn't be locked. Things you would expect for this price. Locationwise it is great, smack in the middle of Montparnasse. I would... More

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.
