Stayed here two nights on either end of a trip to southern France. Chose based on other Trip Advisor reviews and easy access to Montparnasse station. Friendly, welcoming staff. Rooms are clean and charming. Room 40 was larger and quieter than Room 12. None of the rooms are large, but that's typical for Paris. Breakfast was a perfectly fine French standard - coffee, juice and croissants. The lift is small and quirky (careful stepping out onto the landing as others have said), but I only used it if I had to and took the steps on trips downstairs. Very walkable to Montparnasse station--it only took me 10-15 minutes with luggage. Also convenient to a number of restaurants, Luxembourg Gardens and St. Germain. I highly recommend and would stay here again on a future visit.
