“What a find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

We stayed, by default, at Victoria Palace from Oct. 13-17. All other hotel choices were filled and how fortunate for us that they were. Victoria Palace could not have been better. The hotel itself is beautiful, very tastefully decorated, clean and inviting and well-situated for tourists who enjoy walking to sites. Our room, a junior suite on the 4th floor, was lovely, very spacious, immaculate, quiet and offered amenities we needed. The breakfast buffet, included in pricing, offered a great variety of hot and cold options with a breakfast room staff attentive and quick to respond to requests. All of the staff were friendly, spoke English and very helpful in directing us to places we wanted to visit, with arranging tours, hailing taxis and they happily do currency exchanges at the front desk. We were always cheerfully greeted upon leaving or returning after a day of sightseeing which made us feel like we were "home." I definitely will stay here again.

Room Tip: Room 404 is quiet, has windows that open onto the street side, is nicely decorated, spacious--next t...

We stayed for the weekend 19 - 21 October.

I really love this district of Paris and have nbeen staying within a kilometre of Montparnasse for several decades but this was my first (and last) time at the Victoria Palace - despite its good location.

The room was fine, the bathroom great and the room was admirably quiet but...

for €340 per night you expect more than this.

The staff were unsatisfactory. The desk manager was a sour older man. The receptionist was a young inexperienced sweet girl of about 25, but lacking professionalism.

The thing that really did it was that the internet in our room was hopeless. Room 308. Maybe a modem problem but they failed to fix it or to seem in the least concerned. Can you believe a four star hotel still tries to pretend it's offering a free wi-fi when if you want downloads you need to be paying extra for a premium service. And the basic simply didn't work 49 times out of 50. My iPad worked in the lobby and breakfast room fine. But I wasted a lot of time failing to get online in the room. For €680 for two nights I expect things to be more professional.

PS The breakfasts were excellent.

Room Tip: Avoid Room 308 if you want to use wi fi to stay in touch

The staff were very helpful most spoke English and made our stay very pleasant and we would stay again. The hotel is very comfortable and has an elevator which is handy if you have luggage, even with only 6 floors. Excellent location, walking distance to great restaurants, shops, metro & hop on hop off bus stop.

After not visiting Paris for 16 years, it was a pleasure to return. We stayed at Victoria Palce, who where friendly and tried to help in every way. David the bartender was welcoming and chatty! The room was big, bed comfortable and balacony to sit . Breakfast was part of package and very worth the money!!! it was quite and restful at night...Thankyou

Room Tip: Do get a suite, well worth the extra, more room to move, certain ly if staying 7 days

This was my first time in France and the staff and accommodations at Victoria Palace made me feel right at home. The front desk staff went above and beyond helping us with directions, reservations and recommendations. Michael the bartender was interesting and informative, even helping our group with some basic French. The Jr Suite was really large, clean and comfortable. Conveniently located where we could walk, take a train or bus very easily to everything we wanted to see. I would definitely stay here again if I am fortunate enough to get back to Paris!

Room Tip: The Junior Suite is an upgrade that is worth the money! Ask the front desk to book any tours you a...

A lovely boutique hotel in Montparnasse on a small street, tucked away from noise and traffic. We had a jr. suite which was large, well-appointed, modern bathroom, plenty of closet space, and doors that open on to "stand-on" balconies to walk out on each morning if you wish. Breakfast, which was part of our package, was varied enough to meet most people's expectations. The concierges were as accommodating, helpful, and friendly as any I have experienced. They made great suggestions for restaurants, getting around, and sightseeing. We were there for 8 nights and the hotel exceeded all my expectations. I would happily stay again should we visit Paris again.

Room Tip: Definitely a jr. suite--size is perfect for a long stay.

We thoroughly enjoyed this hotel. After researching Paris hotels prior to our trip for what seemed like hours, this one seemed like a perfect match for us - traditional style, reasonable price (for Paris!), and good location from which to venture out each day. We were not disappointed! The room was wonderful, the breakfasts lovely, and the hotel is located in a great location for getting out and walking to the sights we wanted to visit. We would definitely stay here again if we were able to visit Paris another time.
