Very friendly and helpful staff. Great location. We use the Metro to go whereever we want to go. Not fancy, but clean and nice rooms. You can't beat the price. We have been staying here when ever we go to Paris for 8 years now.

Stayed at the Lion for a few days to see 2 concerts at the Theatre des Champs Elysees. Very friendly staff made me immediately feel at home. I had a (for Paris) relatively spacious room with 2 small balconies, a large double bed, a desk, HD TV and a small bathroom. The room had a city view, over the rooftops... More

The staff is very friendly and helpful. We really appreciated that they found some things we left and are sending them on to us. The Hotel is not luxurious, but is is clean and nice. For us is a perfect location to access the metro and RER and the Olry-Bus, and we like being close to Rue Daguerre which is... More

Three days in Paris over Christmas was made so much better by this small, friendly, convenient hotel. Close to all transport, food and services close by, in a real neighborhood. But the staff made all the difference. So very helpful, warm, always a smile and a greeting, perfect English. Not a frills hotel but clean and family feel. A place... More

The hotel is located near very close to Denfert-Rochereau station (RER and metro) and has direct bus connection to Orly airport. Therefore it is very convenient to travel to and from the airport to the hotel. The neighborhood has a supermarket, cafes and plenty of restaurants to eat in. The reception staff was very nice. Though the room was relatively... More

Also important the neighborhood is nice, it has a supermarket and bakery just facing the hotel, and a very nice street with food stores with a strong French style. The staff is welcoming and though the hotel is only a european... More

First of all, the staff is really friendly, very willing to help and made our saty better in all ways. The location is fantastic, in front of the Denfert Rochereau RER and Metro station lines 4 and 6. Cleaness is a positive aspect. No itens to reclaim.

Hotel du Lion We enjoyed our stay at the Hotel du Lion. The hotel is not in the thick of things but it is still in a good location. It is just across the street from the RER B making it simple to get to and from Charles de Gaulle Airport. The Denfert Rochereau Metro stop is just outside the... More

A great location, close to Denfert Rochereau RER and Metro station, with plenty of restaurants and bars nearby. The Catacombs are just across the street and the Montparnasse Cemetery is a 5-10 minute walk away. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and quite spacious for a single. The ensuite even had the bonus of... More

I liked hotel. It is very conveniently located - from the station Montparnasse of 15 minutes on foot, directly near hotel - metro station and a direct branch to the CDG airport, a cozy single room on the eighth floor overlooking the Tower Montparnasse and the Eiffel Tower. The Bollshy bathroom with windows in a floor:))). Nearby there are a... More

Staying in Montparnasse

Neighborhood Profile
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.
