“Clean and quiet hotel in an excellent location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

the hotel is on an avenue full of restaurants and bars, a great thing for the evening, but the hotel itself still quiet.
The hotel is a two minute walk from a metro station and a 3 minute walk from central station Montparnasse.
The staff was kind and helpful and helped us a lot.
The hotel was clean and tidy and it was nice to be there.
The rooms were nicely decorated and had a seating area with a table, which was helpful.

The hotel is highly recommended!

In booking this hotel, I had the understanding that it is a 4star hotel. Once I got there, it was brought to my attention that a 4star hotel in Paris is not comparable to a 4star hotel in the US. I would categorize this hotel as a 2, maybe 3 star (on a good day) hotel. It's comparable to a Best Western, or Holiday Inn Express hotel. Came to the hotel while on vacation in Paris with my Mom. When on vacation, it's nice to get greeted with a smile and all those pleasantries. Upon checking into the hotel, we received none of that. The front desk staff weren't rude but they weren't very pleasant either. Only 1 elevator was working during our stay, there was shotty paint throughout the hotel, the paint in the hotel room was chipped, the furniture was cheap looking and worn, the soapdish in the bathroom was dirty. Overall, the hotel just had a "cheap" feel to it. The saving grace to the vacation was the location of the hotel. It's on a street with tons of cool restaurants and bars, walking distance to shopping, and close to the metro. I would love to visit Paris again. But the next time I go, I definitely will not be staying at this hotel.

Close to Montparnasse station. Lots of good restaurants and bars close by.

Very comfortable. Particularly welcomed being able to make a hot drink in the room - not usually a feature of hotels in France.

This hotel is located 5 minutes walk for gare montparnasse tube station & also has the edgar quinet tube station at the bottom of the street.

Hotel check in was quick & staff were helpful.

When we arrived in our room there was no cot for our baby however a quick call to reception solved that & within a few minutes a lovely gentleman arrived in our room with a cot.

Housekeeping came everyday & were very friendly.

Did not eat at the hotel - went for breakfast to fab place on the square at the bottom of the street which did amazing pancakes.

Edgar quinet tube station is at the bottom of the street which takes you to the eiffel tower within around 7-8 stops. We also went to Disney which again you go via edgr quinet to nation. then change there for disney.

Would defiantely stay here again if i return to Paris.

just returned from a five night family holiday here and would fully recommend this hotel for anyone wanting comfortable, modern accommodation in a safe and buzzing suburb of paris. reception staff spoke fluent english and our room was clean and the beds very comfortable. The cooked buffet breakfast was excellent. We were able to eat locally every night from the wide selection of restaurants within easy walking distance of the hotel.

The hotel is also within a five minute walk of three different metro stops giving direct access to all the key tourist areas of Paris.

Room Tip: our room at the back of the hotel overlooked the garden and was very peaceful

The hotel is neither great nor horrible. It's good. For those coming from the states it's similar to an upscale Holiday Inn. Solid location, near 2 train stations. But the train stations don't go directly to any locations of interest. You will need to switch lines. Lots of options for well priced eating surround the hotel, but there's very little shopping of note. The included breakfast buffet is very nice and a welcome treat. The hotel has wifi throughout and the connection was strong. Nicely sized rooms, but cramped bathrooms and the worst shower system known to man. It's a stand up shower with a removable head. Ok that's not bad, right? What is bad is the shallow floor in the shower, which creates a flood every time. The staff is pleasant and attentive, which compensates for the slowest elevators in the world. Please note, there is 1 iron and ironing board for the entire hotel. It sorta works. This isn't nitpicking, it's reality. The experience was good, but upon coming back to Paris, I'd look elsewhere.

We stayed here with my parents as included in our package deal tour of Paris. Unfortunately we left our luggages in the airport due to a Strike going on with Airport Employees ... Staff at front desk has been really helpful, ABOVE and BEYOND for following days trying to retrieve our luggages from airport ... finally being delivered after 2 days of our stay. It was the holidays, frustrated and stressed from uneventful experience of those luggages, this hotel is an EXCELLENT place to stay in Paris. Bus stations are nearby, as well shopping areas and restaurants.

Main lobby has been decorated nicely. Rooms are comfortable, pillows and beddings are splendid, bathrooms are clean and marvelous. We could see Eiffel Tower from our bedrooms, excellent view. Buffet breakfast is included in the package, great accomodation being given to my mom in her wheelchair. Hot breakfast of different assortments are available.

We'll definitely recommend this hotel to friends and families. Thank you for making our Trip to Paris very memorable !!!
