“Small is Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2012

We stayed at the Apostrophe for three nights over the Easter weekend. The hotel is small, very well kept, very clean with a lot of attention to detail.

Location:
5 minutes walk from the RER station Port Royal, which is around 30 mintes from CDG airport if you catch an express train.
Just off the Luxembourg Park, it is ideally located to discover the Rive Gauche and even beyond on foot, if, as was the case for the two of us, you like long walks (around 20 minute brisk walk to Notre Dame). There is also a metro station just around the corner if you need to give your feet a rest.

Room:
Our room "U" - rooms have letters instead of number (so you can guess the number of rooms is limited to the alphabet), was on the 4th floor, quiet (for Paris standards), and pretty stylish in a modern pop art kind of way (each room is different!) and big enough for the extended weekend luggage we had with us, definitely adequate compared to other Paris hotels. The bath "area" was very nice and openly integrated in the main room, the shower lovely. Free WiFi!

Breakfast:
We didn't try the hotel breakfast, as we prefer going to bakeries and cafes of which there is an abundance in the periphery of the Jardin Luxembourg. Try the traditional brioche at the "Bread and Roses" in St. Germain.

Service/Staff:
The type of high class personalised service you would expect from a small hotel like this. Poor Roman was on shift for most of the Easter weekend, it seems, however he made us feel very welcome, gave us ample advise when needed, made restaurant reservations etc. He also has an obvious talent for languages, but his high level of patience encouraged us to practice our French, which we really appreciated. Merci Roman.

Overall:
Great. Will definitely go there again and have already recommended the hotel to a colleague.

Extremely stylish little hotel, perfectly located close to the metro and many restaurants. As others on here have said, the rooms are small but this doesn't detract from their charm! The showers are something special! Very friendly and helpful staff. We'd definitely come again.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 'V', very characterful

this was one of our best paris experiences...centrally located in montparmasse, the location cannot be beat for the price. the room was small, but we were on the highest floor of this boutique hotel and could glimpse the eiffel tower from the windows, great views! the room, albeit small, was very comfortable and the shower was exqiusite and modern. i know paris has been working on its image over the years, but the hotel staff were some of the nicest, cordial and most helpful ever encountered...do stay here, you will not be disappointed!!!

Room Tip: choose high, you will not be dissapointed...quiet from the street.

I stayed at Apostrophe during February.  The rooms are very small - but the attention to detail is great.  The bathroom, shower, products, linen - all really high quality.  It's easy to find, and close to some great places to eat & drink.

We had a great stay in room D. The staff was very helpful with directions and suggestions for places to eat. The night attendant was particularly nice and full of suggestions. Try le cottage for dinner during your stay - it's across the street. We had a wonderful dinner. The location is also excellent. It's close to the metro and lots of restaurants and bars. The only drawback is that the rooms are on the small side (but they are really nice). Love the jets in the shower!

Really tiny rooms. Artistic but barely enough space to get around. Good point was the free wifi but for the price, charging for breakfast felt a little like overkill. Location was good, near metro and the RER station. But coming from Rome where we got really outstanding service, the lack of basics (at least to us) like free tea/coffee making facilities and complimentary drinking water felt like glaring misses. Will definitely stay somewhere else the next time we visit Paris.

I have zero complaints with my stay. I'll also say that a review of any travel experience is always measured against expectations.
My expectation (and what I was looking for in a hotel) was a clean, boutique hotel in a convenient area in the latin quarter of Paris. All expectations were met and exceeded. Overall, I loved my stay, enjoyed the hotel and the staff, and would absolutely recommend the hotel without hesitation.

Room: We stayed in the "Man" room symbolized by the upside down "A". The room was as advertised. Queen bed, very comfortable (not two twins, but a true queen). Large closet. As in other reviews, of note is that the shower and bathroom sink are a part of your room. I thought this was charming. It helped that the shower was incredible. The toilet is its own bathroom and is private.

Staff: The staff were all exceptionally helpful. Someone at the desk 24/7. They had recommendations, made our reservations, called our room an hour before to ask if we needed taxis. When we came downstairs, they had maps printed to get us to our restaurants. Made the stay that much nicer. Also of note, I booked through Tablet.com. When I received my confirmation, I emailed and asked for as nice a room as possible (seemingly obvious but can't hurt) as every room at the Apostrophe is different. They were so accommodating, giving us the top floor room with a view. It was much appreciated.

All in all, a great boutique hotel. Not for the people looking for amenity-driven hotels or luxury. But I wouldn't call it "no-frills" either. It was charming, very comfortable, modern and well appointed. But definitely a Paris Boutique hotel and not a luxury or chain-like establishment.
