Perfect budget hotel for an expensive city like Paris. A short distance to the Metro station, which also has a connection to CDG Airport - so no need for taxis anywhere. I used this hotel as a stopover from my trip to Bordeaux, and did a bit of Paris sightseeing on a budget. The room is OK, comfortable and clean,... More

Location is the best part. Rue Daguerre, where the hotel is located, is a pretty nice and lively street. It's got all kinds of restaurants, shops, super markets and stuff, with a Line 4 (the best metro line in my opinion) stop at one end, 3 minutes' walk from the hotel. The hotel staffs are friendly, I mean, compared to... More

This is a budget 2-star hotel close to the Denfert Rochereau station. I can say it is quite simple but safe. The room is small but includes a double bed and and bathroom with shower. The hotel offers free wifi and has an elevator. The staff is helpful and friendly. Good for a business or turistic trip on limited funds... More

the staff working at the hotel is quite gentle, and try to help the guests as much as they can. Only a few number of staff people can speak english, and it is desirable to have some knowledge in the french language. But the location of the hotel is its major point. The facilities are old and cleanliness could be... More

At first let me tell the last word: "yes! I will go there again.":) . I and my wife were there for 13 days in July 2013 and it was very good. Lots of good things and some small negative points. It is a 2 star hotel (it is not 3 star). A tiny clean room in a good condition... More

The staff is really helpful, although their English isn't super good you can undertand them. It is localed close to bars, restaurants and the subway is close too. The showers are super small and there is no a/c but you can get some fresh air by opening the window.

Only about 30 meters from where filmmaker Agnès Varda lived on this village-like street in the Montparnasse district of south Paris, this hotel is ideally situated for an excellent stay in the city. Less than five minutes on foot from the Metro, RER or SNCF Gare Montparnasse, there are also many superb restaurant choices in the area (lots of sushi,... More

The hotel is very close to Montparnasse station so it's very convenient if you need to take a TGV or go to Orly. The rooms are basic but with everything you need for a short stay. There should be free wifi but I didn't had time to check. Stayed on the last floor and the bathroom was quite small... The... More

Stayed here for one night. Location is quite good, with a large number of restaurants in the vicinity. Rooms are simply furnished and I missed having a proper chair to sit on: there is only a stool. WiFi is free and worked well, even though I was on the top floor. Selection of channels on the TV is indeed mainly... More
