“Great location and a quality hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

The hotel is in a great location for exploring Paris, close to transport yet in a quiet street. It is between several different metro line stations which made getting around so simple. Nearby there are fantastic restaurants with a massive choice of cuisine.

The hotel staff were very helpful and friendly, escorted us to our room which was very big with a lovely bathroom. Everything was very clean and lots of little things to make the stay easy. The bed was comfortable and large.

We didn't eat in the hotel for either breakfast or dinner as we wanted to sample the various places to eat nearby so I can't comment on the food.

The hotel allowed us to leave our luggage with them for the whole day on our day of departure. I'll definitely go back every time I'm in Paris.

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...

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Victoria Palace Hôtel opened in 1913 and since then it has remained a landmark of the 6th arrondissement of Paris. Located on a quiet street off the bustling Rue de Rennes, the hotel truly is an expression of, the Rive gauche. It combines a very Rive gauche sense of understated and un-self-conscious luxury with the obvious advantages of a centrally located, residential neighbourhood. The focus of the hotel has always been on providing its guests with a true, living experience of Paris. That is why the hotel provides little extras such as the self-guided Foodies’ Discovery Trail to the Cherche-Midi Neighbourhood with artisans and markets ; a shortlist (with map) of the best artisanal chocolatiers on the Left Bank ; and an eight-page shopping-guide listing a plethora of boutiques and independent shops alongside some of the more obvious, internationally-known brands.Whilst retaining its traditions (it has been owned by the same family since 1936) the Victoria Palace Hôtel underwent an in-depth renovation in the year 2000 : where once there had been 113 units, today there are only 62 : 30 Rooms (260 square feet / 25 m² on average) ; 28 Junior Suites (375 square feet / 35 m² on average) ; 4 One-Bedroom Suites (approximately 485 square feet : 45 m²). The warm, opulent décor remains classically French, with all the walls covered in stretched fabrics. Everything else was re-thought for the twenty-first century : well-lit marble bathrooms with powerful hair-dryers, a work-desk in every room, voicemail, internet access, etc… Needless to say, all the rooms are sound-proofed and air-conditioned ; bathrobes and slippers are provided for all guests. Last but not least, the Victoria Palace Hôtel has its very own, private garage.In October 2012, and even though it has neither restaurant nor spa, the hotel received an official five-star rating from the French tourist authorities, underscoring the care and attention to detail that we like to think are the hallmark of the Victoria Palace Hotel. ... more   less
