We would probably stay here again when we need to stay in Paris. The room was small , simple and well decorated . Very friendly staff. wifi included. Hotel is just 10 minutes walking from Montpanasse station.

My family and only I stayed one night at Clairefontaine, and it suited our needs perfectly. This is not a fancy hotel, but it is well run, well maintained and in a nice area. I booked 2 rooms through a 3rd party booking site and got a very affordable rate. We were greeted by friendly staff who spoke some English... More

When we arrived to the Clairefontaine Hotel, we were nicely received and the staff were amazingly kind, hospitable and friendly. Within walking distance from several metro stations ( lines 4, 6, and13) and from the Montparnasse train and bus station( direct line to the CDG/ Orly Airports), the hotel is conveniently located. It is one of the most comfortable hotels... More

The staff were very helpful and most of them could speak a little English which was great. The rooms were average, not very clean as there were hairs still in shower, on the floor and in the drawers from previous guests. The toilet was held up by a concrete block and all the tiles behind it were smashed. There is... More

It is not a hotel- more like small apartment rooms. The building is joined to apartment block and it can be noisy in the morning and evening. Anyone, from guests staying in the hotel, can walk up to your window and considering that there is no air conditioning in rooms, I would struggle if we stayed there in the middle... More

Just spent two great nights at the Hotel Clairefontaine in Paris. Location is great, 10 minute walk to the Montparnasse station, and 10 minutes walk to another Gare that is a direct shot to the Charles de Gaul airport. The staff were very accommodating, and while the room was small it had everything we needed (except soap!) and was very... More

Very small room. There was a portable air conditioning unit which was not connected properly so the room was just heating up instead of getting cool. The young man at reception helped us but in order to keep the air con running we needed to keep the window wide open, even at night. The window faced a walkway, inside the... More

Stayed for 3 nights with 2 young children. Rooms are small but perfect for a few nights. Easy access to metro to explore Paris. Located near plenty of cafes and nice bakeries. Simple but it has a nice feel to it and a very good price too.

We stayed here for one night in June. Our room was clean and the front staff were very helpful and accommodating. Great location, an easy walk from the Port Royal train station. The rooms are very small but quite comfortable. For the price the Hotel Clairefontaine is a great option for anyone travelling on a budget. I would stay here... More
