“Great Hotel!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

My boyfriend and i stayed here for about a week in August-September 2012 and it was PERFECT!
The location is IDEAL for cafes, restaurants, entertainment (theatre right around the corner), shopping (Galleries Lafayette 200m, M.A.C 300m), the metro station is 300m away, and perfectly located for the tour buses that whisk you around the city (about 200m away).

The staff here are SO friendly, well spoken in English, give great tips and ways to best see the city and the rooms are gorgeous!

Our room was on the 4th or 5th floor and was a double room. The cleanliness wassuperb, the bathroom was impeccable and the view from our window was so Parisian it really felt like Paris, not some dingy motel.

There is free access to a laptop on the 2nd or 3rd floor with free internet or the room comes with complimentary wifi if you have your own device.

We couldnt fault this room - except for one thing. There was extremely limited English speaking channels on tv. So if youre planning on spending a night in, bring a USB to plug into the tv. But if not, youll be really happy with your stay here.

The hotel itself is beautiful, and the automatic door at the front really helped with pulling luggage in!!

Overall, a great hotel, great for what we payed, EXCELLENT location (20min walk to the Louvre, notre dame, pont de arts and seine) and great staff!!

Room Tip: choose a room facing the street for a true Parisian view!

Small rooms as others have said but very well decorated and comfortable. Got a little warm as well but on mentioning it to the reception desk they simply turn ed off the heating for the room. The staff were very friendly and helpful indeed. If you are travelling from Gare du Nord get off at Saint-Placide as it's much easier to find the hotel and Montparnasse station is massive and takes ages to get out of.

We stayed in this hotel for 4 nights and enjoyed our stay. Our room in the 6th floor was nice and clean. The room was small but was enough for us and our 3 pieces of luggage (1 big and 2 small). I actually expected the room to be smaller because of the reviews but it wasn't a problem. The room had tea, coffee, cookies and all the toiletries needed. The laptop on the 1st floor was very useful since we wanted to skype. They gave us 2 passwords for the wireless Internet and saw that there was signal in the room but the passwords didn't work. The only thing I didn't like was that there was only one peron in the front desk so if you needed anything, you would have to be the one to get it. We needed new towels and when I called the front desk, the person asked me to go down to get it because he cannot leave the desk. I would still love to stay in this hotel again because the location is perfect (near 3 metro stations) and the rooms are nice and clean.

We recently stayed at this well located boutique style hotel for 3 nights. It is a true 3 star hotel and found the continental breakfast and simple rooms more than adequate. The bathrooms are newly refurbished and very clean.
The gentleman on reception was always helpful, providing maps and suggestions for our daily trips.
A slight negative was the noise from adjacent rooms, very little sound proofing!

A good 3 star property, our room was newly and attractively furnished and decorated (as was the bathroom). Lovely large comfy bed.I loved the balcony and full size double french windows while my husband especially appreciated the fridge and being able to get BBC World News on the TV! The location is brilliant. Within 5 minutes you can walk to the Montparnasse Tower, within 10 the Jardins du Luxembourg. Less than 25 minutes away the Musee d'Orsay, Les Invalides and Notre Dame . There are 3 metro stations nearby, nearest is probably Montparnasse Bienvenue, 3 minutes away. For Eurostar travellers, Metro line 4 takes you directly to Gare de Nord. I love using the metro and a carnet of tickets (10 single journeys) is great value at less than 13 euros. Unlike an oyster card which can only be used by one person, you can share out your 10 tickets with other people. Fantastic locality for all types of eateries and bars and you can do some posh shopping along Rue de Rennes. It is a very busy road but the double glazing ensured that traffic noise could not be heard.Continental self service buffet breakfast was adequate, plentiful and the breakfast room/lounge area offers complimentary newspapers, books and the use of a laptop. Free wi fi for your own devices is also available (get your code from reception). We had a very pleasant stay. Special mention to the lovely Matthieu on reception always smiling and helpful, equiping us with maps, directions and even his umbrella!

Room Tip: Rooms at front of hotel have balconies. Would recommend 4th or 5th floor for best views. 6th floor i...

This was a nice boutique hotel in the 6th arr. of Paris. The location was good/central to walk around Paris. Several metro stations were close by which made it very convenient for either walking or using the metro.

The bed was a full-size and more comfortable than expected! Enjoyed good sleeping and it was quiet, even for a weekend.The room was small, but not any smaller than what you would find in Europe.

The bathroom was clean and nice, but the tub surround was very tall and it felt a little dangerous to me climbing in and out of the tub. They also used a vessel sink in the bathroom because which took up a lot of space on the small vanity. And, I'm on the shorter side - so the tub/shower being high and the height of the vessel sink was just minor irritation.

When I reserved the room - I did so on-line using a third party paying for the room in advance. When we checked in, they charged us more because they said they charge by person, not by room. I would have rated this property four of five, but because of this "surprise" charge, I am only ranking it average.

When we return to Paris, we will keep this property in mind and would feel ok staying here again. But we will look around at other properties in the area for comparisons.

My boyfriend surprised me by taking me to Paris for my 21st birthday and this was the hotel he chose! With it being a surprise i'm unsure how much it cost in total but when leaving i overheard €600 for 3nights not including breakfast.
Personally for us, we didn't need the breakfast as we got up early and hit the sights, not needing anything til lunch. Breakfast was from 7/7.30-10 and took place on the first floor in the cutest room full of boutique chairs and tables.

The hotel didn't have wifi but a laptop on the first floor was available 24/7 for use. We used it every day without a hitch.

We stayed in room 55, which even had a little balcony overlooking the street. The balcony doors shut out all noise from the street when closed. The bed was comfy and the bathroom had an awesome waterfall shower. The room was small but the perfect size for two people, equipped with a tv and fridge.

The room was decorated blue, with an old fashioned blue pattern running on one wall where the bed was placed as well as on the bed runner and curtains, it was lovely! The most adorable room! Perfect for those with a boutique-y style!

The hotel was situated on rue de rennes, which is not right in the city centre but Paris is huge! It was near 3/4 metro stops, meaning it was a short metro journey to all the main attractions (which are free to those above 16 and below 25 from the EU)

The staff at the hotel were lovely and very helpful. Always pleasant and kindly booked us a taxi to the airport on our ladt day!

I'd reccommend this hotel to all visiting Paris!
