“Decent hotel with good location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

Opted for this hotel because of its proximity to Montparnesse station and lots of cafe and eating out places with different cuisine all in walking distance. Since the station was really close, I could take metro to virtually anywhere in the city. It wasn't difficult to find and had decent room for the price charged. Person at the reception became really good friend and he helped us in planning our complete paris tour. He also informed us about the France day parade on champ de elysee which was the attratcion of our tour.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

I stayed at this hotel with my Aunt for five days. The location was perfect- close to the train station, places to eat, bakeries, cafes, shops, at the Metro. We walked to the Eiffel Tower the first day, though that was quite a hike there and back. For later trips to Paris central, we could get there in 10-15 minutes via the Metro.

There is no AC, but in late May/ early June, opening the windows was just perfect. At night, we kept them open and I'd sit next to them and just enjoy the noise of the city.

I couldn't tell if the shower was just old or if it needed a better scrub in the corners. The rest of the bathroom was clean.

In our room specifically, we had a laugh at the light switch placement- on the headboard, right behind the pillow spot.

The staff was VERY nice. I admitted I only knew a little French upon arrival, and when I looked up how to ask for our room key (Thirty Three, please!) in French, the manager was thrilled. They gave us maps and recommendations for exploring the area.

Overall, I'd call this a great place to sleep, shower, and get back to exploring the city.

For Paris is the Price/Value rate good. Very smal rooms. Simple Breakfast with industrial products. Around the a hotel some nice bars.
Tip: No spaces for cars around. You will get a Ticket very fast for wrong parking.

We chose this hotel because of its proximity to Montparnesse station and price. We only stayed one night as we were catching the train to the west coast of France. It meet both these criteria well. It was about a five minute walk from where the airport bus dropped us at Montparnesse station. The room was clean, with a newly renovated bathroom. Yes the room was small but it was at the back of the hotel and quiet. The staff were friendly and helpful eventhough they spoke only a little english. The room appeared not to have air conditioning but was heated. There was a lift which was very small as with most Parisienne hotels, it stopped between floors on a small landing so if you are not fit or carry large luggage this hotel may not be suitable for you.

Hotel Agenor (Montparness) - After spending 5 nights at this hotel, I'm on the fence as to whether I would recommend it to anyone. If you're thinking about staying here, set your expectation bar on the lowest setting and you might not be disappointed. Extremely small room. Bed is old and tired. Carpet is desperate need of cleaning. Grout in shower is moldy in places. And in all my travels, I have never met a set of towels that needed to be relegated to rags more than what we were given each day. On the positive side, the water pressure in the shower was phenominal. By far the best we experienced on our trip.

Although the hotel is on a side street, there was so much street noise coming from Rue de Maine that both my wife and I had to use earplugs to get a decent night sleep. We had breakfast at the hotel only one time. Not a discriminator either way.

The front desk folks were very pleasant. But for full disclosure, most of them knew little to no english, which would be fine except their website definitely stated they do. If you're looking for an affordable place to crash at the end of each night with basic ameneties, this might work for you. We were a little disappointed, but I think we set the expectation bar a little too high.

Note: When we made our booking a few months ago, they were ranked #683 out of 1838 hotels in Paris on Trip Advisor. Currently, they are ranked #1071 out of 1838.

To make a long story short, we needed to adjust our reservation, shortening from 4 to 2. Since the initial booking was through booking.com, we were instructed by the hotel to cancel the entire booking and rebook only the nights we needed. Did not work, emails to Agenor saying such (and showing concern as for a short while, we were without hotel during busiest time in France) were ignored, so a kind proprietor at a prior b and b spoke French with them by phone. We assumed the price would be our original price divided in half, as we were staying half the nights. Wrong. The "promotion" was for four nights, but booking.com only showed total cost so no way of knowing it was different each night. Instead of 102/night, we were now faced with 130/night. Despite our inability to know that ahead of time, since our emails regarding booking.com were ignored, they were inflexible. After some push back in our high school French, came down to 125 forcash, then somehow 120 at checkout. Not a pleasant experience, made more painful as it not a 130 euro/night hotel. Especially because we had to clean the toilet ourselves when we arrived.

Although the room and sheets were clean, the bathroom had a bad mold problem and the stench was unbearable. When I tried to tell the staff about it, someone came to look and told me he didn't think it could be mold since the bathroom was cleaned every day, then shrugged and left. I was astonished!

The staff barely speak English and give contradictory answers to things like whether it is required to pay in cash at the end. Some of the description on our online room purchase (like the room having a safe) was false. The room is very small (that was expected) and some of the furniture has marks and deformations (I don't mind that so much as long as it is clean). Some of the staff were very nice, and others were quite rude to us.

I would strongly recommend finding a different hotel, there are others in the immediate vicinity that are the same price but seem much better.
