“Cheapest I could find in decent location.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

As a solo traveller I am not too concerened with staying in a flashy hotel. This hotel was about right for what I payed. Clean & quiet room, good bathroom, comfortable bed. Receptionists were the typical French type, not too highly skilled on the pleasantness side of things. But they spoke English & told me what I needed to know. Overall its an average hotel but suited me fine.

The hotel staff were rude and unfriendly. The rooms are small with thin walls and medium cleanliness. It was ok for location. small rooms, small elevator, small and narrow corridor. No nice view from the window, at least from the second floor window. One may book a better hotel with a better location, friendly staff, better service...

Stayed for 3 nights in the second week of June in a triple room. IMO price of hotel was expensive but as were all the other hotels in the area. The front desk staff were very friendly. The room was adequate, it was clean and the bathroom was a bit small. Literally less than an inch from the sink and the door when you open and close it. There's an elevator but only one so sometimes you'd have to wait a bit but that's fine. It would be sometimes faster to walk down from the sixth floor than to wait for the elevator. There's plenty of food options nearby. There is a bakery a block away and a monoprix two minutes away. There are two metro stations sort of close by. Plaisance and Alesia, these two are different lines and in the opposite direction of eachother from the hotel. Both were about a 5 to 10 min walk from the hotel. It was easy to get to the major destinations if you don't mind using the metro. We took a taxi to Gare Montparnasse and cost about 13 euro. Overall, the hotel was good and you're really only there to sleep as Paris was a wonderful city.

I recently stayed two nights in Montparnasse Alesia.
The room was not large, but not too small. No frills, but a nice bed.
A bathroom with a good shower, but no toiletries.
There is a lift, although I took the stairs.
Breakfast is adequate, continental style. If you are expecting full English breakfast, you will be disappointed.
Front staff were not particularly friendly, but not unfriendly either.
The best aspect is the shopping in Rue d'Alesia, but this is high street store shopping, not designer label shopping
The hotel is not too far from metro station Plaisance and a little further from metro station Alesia.
All-in-all: an average hotel in central Paris.

Ok hotel but nothing special. Nice and clean in the rooms and areas and friendly staff. Booked over booking.com and it wasnt really a catch. Breakfast was ok actually and only 9€ extra. Close to metro

Good location with essential shopping stores nearby. The front of house staff were rude and impatient but could understand and speak English well. Breakfast was ok- no hot water for tea because the urn was broken. Decent size room and was very clean. Heard my neighbor return to their room at 1am in the morning and heard the door shutting loudly, conversation through the wall and then the shower running: perhaps loud and rude neighbors but the walls are so thin I can hear the floors creaking from the next room as I write!

Rue d'Alesia is a nice area with lots of shops and the 14e arrondissement is still a true Paris district without too many tourists, though only some metro stops away from the touristic main sites.
The hotel is clean but in summer, we had a room without air conditioning. The other couple with whom we traveled had it but the room was on the street side and very very noisy. The rooms were not large. Breakfast is good. Price are average.

Room Tip: Definitely choose a room which is not on the street side. Even with good windows, you'll hear th...
