We were generously upgraded from a twin room to a quadruple room on arrival. The room was huge but the space is wasted because there were no extra benefits to encourage you to do anything other than sleep. No refrigerator, no tea or coffee, no kettle. We were surprised when we opened the door because the floor had a huge... More

I have stayed at Montpensier each time I've visited Paris, and I'm consistently impressed. It isn't too expensive and the employees are always very kind. Breakfast is great, too. The hotel is centrally located and near the Louvre and several great little shops and restaurants.

We were really happy with this hotel when we stayed. We had a family room, which was huge. Five minutes walk from the Louvre made the location unbeatable. The decor and furnishings could do with updating but everything was clean. The lift is small but it works! Overall, a great place to stay if you are on a budget and... More

Stayed in the Montpensier for the second time in the last couple of years for 4 nights last week.The location is the best thing about this hotel and was the primary reason for my choosing to return.It's 2 mins from the Louvre, 10 mins to Champs Elysees on foot. A very convenient starting point for the main tourist attractions. Rooms... More

Stayed at the beginning of February for 3 nights. Great little hotel in a good location. We went for a room with its own private bathroom and were located on the top floor. It is situated in the oldest part of Paris so naturally the rooms are compact. The lift is a bit of a squeeze for 2 people and... More

We stayed for 4 nights around Christmas. Fresh towels & daily house keeping. Clean bathroom. Our room had a rather nice toilet. Was given a room on the 5th floor. Will recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a place to stay with good location & reasonable rates as it is only a few minutes walk to the Louvre in... More

Pros: great location Cons: very average customer service, rude cleaners. We had a room with shared toilet and the toilet (aka cleaners / painters room) was really strange...I thought I was using the wrong toilet at first because there were paint Tina, a vacuum and lots of other things left out in the open it looks like a painters closet....

Hotel Montpensier is a good value for a budget hotel. Since it is in the old part of Paris, of course it is a very old building. The location is safe and very close to the Louvre. There are small food stores, bakeries, sandwich shops, restaurants, Hagen-Daz ice cream, and a McDonald's with free wi-fi. The restaurants were expensive to... More

We stayed here for two nights and we had different experience than the most of reviewers. The only pros is location and friendly staff other than that do not worth the hype. Our room was dirty: water marks on mirrors, dirty window frames, dusty surfaces, when we entered the room you could fell unpleasant odour. Moreover, our room was on... More

The location is very strategic, only 2 minutes walk from metro Palais de Royale and 3-5 minutes walk to Louvre. The price is reasonable low compared to other hotel at the same area. Room is very clean though outdated. I chose room with toilet and sink inside. The shared bathroom is clean (probably they directly clean it up after being... More
