“Affordable, great location and friendly staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

We recently spent 3 nights at the La Maison Montparnasse over NYE. The hotel is in a great location and there are many lovely shops and restaurants along nearby street - Rue Raymond Losserand. The staff were friendly and helpful the reception desk is manned 24hrs.The wifi connection was strong but they seem to have limited connections so when they are all in use you are unable to log-in until another user logs out which was frustrating. The room we staying in was the most budget type and were clean and well decorated but small, my partner at just over 6ft could not close the door to the toilet once he was inside! Overall we were very happy with our stay and will return if we are ever in Paris.

This is one of my favourite hotels in Paris. The rooms and the entire hotel are quite tiny but this adds to the intimate atmosphere. The colourful decor, the set-up of the rooms, the cleanliness, the breakfast and most of all the friendly, helpful staff make you feel really at ease. Breakfast is good and there is a little cute terrace to have your breakfast outside.
It's in a nice corner of Montparnasse too and I can definitely recommend it.

We really enjoyed our 5-night stay at this fine, intimate hotel in the heart of the lovely Montparnesse neighborhood. My wife and I had a very comfortable small room on the first floor(one floor above the lobby), as did our four friends. Our bed was especially comfortable, and we took full advantage of the hotel's outdoor patio where each day we ate our breakfast and shared an evening toast with our friends. The hotel staff was friendly and provided much information about the local area and the greater Paris tourist attractions. The subway stop was only a few blocks from the hotel which offered us easy access to many of Paris' tourist attractions. Our only complaint was the elevator that was broken for much of our stay.

Small and familiar hotel in a quite a nice neighbourhood. Plain rooms, - no room safe but hair-drier,- very clean, and with the most comfortable beds. Wonderful choice for breakfast: such a choice in a small space. To these who wanted to have an different Parisian experience, not the artificial tourist’s one, an great option very near to the city main attractions by sub-way.
Staff extremely friendly and attentive. Very good relation price / quality.
Just a small note: at night, using the lift, be aware that the door opens almost directly to the stairs. Do not walk before the stairs lights went on.

First of all I can't mention any negative points, everything was perfect! We had a triple room, and I have to say it was small, but not the smallest I've ever stayed in. The room itself was clean, with simple furniture, the bed and the pillows were great! We were on the third floor so it wasn't noisy. The elevator is very very tiny so it was a challenge to send up and down our luggage as it stops between two floors.
The staff is friendly, helpful and speaks english. We didn't try the breakfast option, because we thought it was a bit expensive and on the other hand there are bakeries close to the hotel and near subway station, which is also a few minutes away from hotel (Pernety). There's a supermarket on the next corner too. After checking out we could leave our luggage there, so it was also a great help for us, and we were allowed to use the computer for check-in and the printer for our boarding cards.
In my opinion this hotel was better than some 3 and 4 star accomodations

We stayed for ten days in this lovely hotel, where the staff made us feel very welcome and the cleaners were amazingly thorough and would recommend it to others. Montparnasse is a wonderful area and we said goodbye to a lot of new friends when we left. We took the breakfast option and wouldn't again. It's a good breakfast but there are a lot of cheaper options in the area.

La Maison Montparnasse is a charming, colorful small boutique hotel located on Metro Line 13 a 5 minute walk to either the Pernety or Plaisance stations. My simple room was basic, clean, bright, and small, which was exactly what I was looking for. The price couldn't be beat! The hotel does have the world's smallest elevator, but it is an extremely modern retrofit. The staff were courteous and professional to every guest. Often at small hotels in Paris, I have found that the proprietors will take a liking to certain guests and treat others very coldly. Not so at La Maison Montparnasse! Every request is met graciously, and frequently courtesies were offered when no request was made. For example, I returned late one night with a take away meal. I asked to sit at the breakfast tables in the lobby to eat it out of the bag. The night clerk immediately offered to reheat my meal, laid a place setting, and insisted on washing up afterwards. For those few who don't have a mobile device, a public computer is available in the lobby, and they will make the front desk printer available for printing boarding passes. There are many choices for breakfast, including some homemade jams. While the street does not have a lot of traffic, on weekend nights (Fri and Sat), the noise of people walking and talking loudly carries through closed windows into the wee hours. That said, on weeknights, it was quite quiet. If you are a light sleeper and plan on staying over a weekend, be sure to ask for a room in the back overlooking the courtyard. As a single woman travelling alone, I can report that I felt very safe walking in this neighborhood even close to midnight. La Maison Montparnasse is a real find, a hidden gem. I would stay here again in heartbeat!

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the courtyard are quieter, particularly on weekends when the street side is noisy...
