“Cosy, convenient and clean”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

For my first trip to Paris, I was looking for something pleasant and budget-friendly. L'Hotel de la Paix exceeded my expectations. It was recommended by a friend who travels to Paris frequently, and I was very happy.

The location is excellent -- a half-block from the Metro and a five-minute walk from the RER to the airport. There were many, many good restaurants nearby, and the Luxembourg Gardens were a short walk away.

The staff was pleasant and helpful, and the rooms were very clean. I was particularly impressed by the newly remodeled bathrooms.

I stayed for five nights in a superior double room and three nights in a standard double. The superior room was quite spacious (for a city hotel, that is.) The standard was a little tight, but it was still very comfortable.

One caution -- although there is a small elevator, you will still have to carry your bags up or down a flight of stairs. Also, if you're a light sleeper, choose the superior room where you will hear less hallway noise.

Just a very nice, comfortable, not horrifically expensive place to stay if you want to explore Paris. Highly recommended.

Lovely staff, clean and very nice rooms, walking distance from many of the important places, and from the metro which is very comfortable to use. We are very happy to recommend it and would love to come back!

Couldn't be happier with this hotel!

It is within walking distance within many major sites, but also has fantastic transport connections. There are plenty of restaurants in the local area to choose from, and feels safe late at night.

It's got a very cosy and quirky reception space with a vintage theme, the staff are very friendly, welcoming, and helpful. I could see how our room would be considered quite small by some people's standards (the double bed takes up most of the room, with a small desk off to the side) but we never planned on spending much time in whatever hotel we booked aside from sleeping and a bit of day planning so for us it was absolutely perfect!

It was very quiet, bed was comfortable, everything was spotless, great value -
In short, I know where I'm staying on my next trip to Paris!

This brilliant hotel is within walking distance of a lot of the major sights in the city, or at least a stones throw from an underground station to get you to those further away. Spotless, good service from the reception staff, couldn't fault it.

This cute little boutique hotel is conveniently located 2 minutes from the Metro, about 10 minutes from the RER for the airport. The room was pretty spacious for Europe standards. Bathroom was very nice - modern and clean. Staff was friendly, but I felt they weren't that great with recommendations as other hotels we've stayed in. (I had to help the guy give another tourist advice on buying tickets for the Metro).

It is a 10 minute walk to Tour Montparnasse if you want to see the Eiffel Tower from high up.

Couldn't think of a better place to stay in Paris . . . a charming little hotel away from the big ones near the tourist sites. Hotel de la Paix is a short walk from both the Metro and the RER to the airport, I loved this place because it felt like staying in a quaint little apartment building vs. a hotel. The staff was wonderful and offered great tips how where to go and the best stop to get off at to see view of Eiffel Tower (hint: it's not the Eiffel Tower stop). We stayed in a junior suite which had a double bed on one side of the room and a twin on the other side for our daughter. The room also had a small desk, ample storage space and had two showers which worked really well for us. Note, this hotel has a winding staircase along with a really cool lift that's big enough for 2-3 people without bags or 1 person with one bag.

Though I had previously suggested this hotel to my sister based only on what I'd seen on their website, once she stayed there and had such a positive experience I knew I couldn't stay anywhere else once I returned to Paris. Glad I made that decision!

Room Tip: Junior suite #36 has two sets of windows that open out to the Rue Raspail.

We spent 8 lovely days in Paris at hotel de la Paix. This hotel, small and our idea of typically French, proved to be wonderful. A 5min walk from Raspail Metro station, it was located close to many delicious eateries, walking distance to Montparnassse Tower. Our room was decorated beautifully, had a very comfortable bed, desk, chairs, wardrobe & safe. No fridge and a compact ensuite which was clean with a very hot shower. Although on a busy road, it was extremely quiet unless you had the window open. The staff spoke English, some better than others, & were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was an extra charge. A small lift (for 1 &a suitcase) stopped vetween flores, and a fantastic tight, oval staircase took you either up or down to your room. All in all, we loved our stay, and were pleased with our choice booked online ourselves.
