We stayed at Cactus with the family (adults + 3 children) during our 3 days trip to Paris. Hotel has good location (practically walking direction from Notre Dame) and good transportation options around. Hotel service was good, breakfast is reasonable - fresh croissants with jam was absolute kids favorite particularly considering us being in France.

I stayed here in 2010. No one helped me with my suitcase. I asked about coffee in the morning and was assured that I could get a cup but when morning came, the kitchen was locked and no one was available. The front office was locked so there was no place to sit in the lobby in the evening. The... More

My family of 4 stayed in this hotel for a week late June 2013 only because they charge entire sum upon check-in, and hotel's wi-fi didn't work due to lack of bandwidth for me to even try to find another hotel. This hotel building is dilapidated, literally 4th rated welfare fleabag. Thin walls, smelly bathroom with broken fixture, bedsheets that... More

Okay hotel for quick stay. Three adults in triple room, 100 Euro. 150 meters from Volontaries Metro stop. Small grocery right beside metro stop. Several cafes within 3 minute walk. Typical big city/small hotel. Staff was very friendly, breakfast of croissants, coffee, and juice. We had room 25, 3rd floor walkup, 2 opening windows with good blinds, view of street,... More

We stayed at this hotel in July 2012 as a family. This price was right for a 2-room suite that slept 5 people in Paris. It is convieniently located near Gare Montparnasse and about a 25 min. walk to the Eiffel Tower. It's also very close to many different restaurants and very quick walk to subway station. The price included... More

Between work and leisure I have over 1200 nights in hotels in the US and Europe. Well, this hotel is a number 1 on my list of "bad hotels". The hotel was dirty with a bad smell of fungus. I would not recommend this hotel for a family, spend some more money and get a clean hotel in a better... More

I was here for a night only as I needed to catch the flight early next morning. The size of the room is bigger than I thought. The Hotel is an old one. However, provided I only stayed a night there for the sleep, I am satisfied with everything. WiFi is excellent and free.I did not have any bedbug issues.
