“Good, affordable option in lively area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013 via mobile

Location - We were somewhat concerned their wouldn't be enough eateries in the area for our long (8-night) stay. But the streets around the hotel possess plenty of great places for breakfast and dinner (provided you do your research first). There is an excellent boulangerie on Rue Delambre. Also close to 2 metro stops and not a long walk to the Seine for the reasonably-fit person.

Room - as others have said, incredibly small! One of our suitcases had to be lifted onto the bed to be opened given the lack of floor space. Also a phone booth of a shower! However the room was surprisingly comfortable with good sound-proofing.

Service - exceptional and a reason to return. Very helpful and willing to assist with any request (eg booked dinner for an obscure restaurant for us one night). I suggest sampling the local boulangeries for breakfast as we found this to be a highlight of our time in Paris. I saw other American tourists getting the hotel breakfast each morning but couldn't help thinking they were missing out!

Overall - given how expensive Paris accommodation can be, the small room size was to be expected. We found the hotel met all our needs and was just within budget.

Very friendly and helpful staff. Excellent service.
Comfortable and nicely decorated hotel.
Lift was quite small but at least this hotel had one.
Room was clean and not too small. Bathroom was great.
Good wi-fi.
Close to the Metro and quite central for visiting Paris sights.
Loved our two night stay here and would definitely consider returning.

Room Tip: Room overlooking the courtyard at the back was very quiet.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

Based on the reviews on TA, my wife and I selected this hotel for a 3-day layover in Paris at the end of our trip to Sicily. We were greatly disappointed with the quality of the accommodations, which bore no resemblance to the pictures on the hotel's Website.

The elevator was super tiny and ancient, and stopped only between floors. It actually ceased working for half a day during our stay. The circular staircase was narrow, uneven and creaky. I missed a step and almost fell down a couple of times. The carpet, both on the staircase and in the room, had seen much better days. The room itself was tiny and dingy (although we did book the Classic room, which was supposed to be one step above the basic Standard room). It could almost be a hostel room dressed up with a couple of Tintin posters.

The redeeming feature was the staff, who were uniformly super helpful and friendly. The chambermaid did a great job keeping our room clean and tidy. The reception personnel (with special mention to the young gentleman working the morning shift, whose name we forgot) was polite to the extreme, and very proactive with suggestions and assistance.

The location was average. Two minutes to a couple of metro stations, but within reasonable walking distance to only one worthwhile attraction (the Jardin de Luxembourg).

In short, this is a one-star property with a five-star staff, hence the three-star rating.

MathJb, Directeur général at Hotel De La Paix Montparnasse, responded to this review, October 6, 2013
Dear Sir,
We thank you for your review, concerning your stay in our establishment, in September 2013, in a CLASSIC room.

We are very happy, that you appreciated the courtesy and the availability of all the team of the hotel , but, we do not understand some part of your review concerning the decoration and the cleanliness of your room.

All our rooms were renovated in 2012 and the decorator who is the owner, Charlotte Ferrero made different atmosphereres in every room and unfortunately, this building of the 19th century, allowed us only, to have an half floor lift.

The hotel is situated in the Montparnasse district, artists' district, with the best Brasseries and restaurants of Paris ; a district which knew how to keep its Parisian charm.

We are very sorry that the room and the comfort of the hotel did not suit to you, and you did not inform us during your stay your feelling about the room as each time we are are trying to find a solution.

We hope, to have the pleasure to welcoming you again at the hotel de la Paix, to discover an another room.

Best Regards,

Mathieu RENAUDIN
General Manager

We stayed here for two nights and were very comfortable. Gracious and helpful service, quite spacious room - we had a room for three with two bathrooms - and super breakfast served again with grace and a smile. Very convenient for the hop on hop off bus which was perfect for us as two don't walk we'll. Also, not far to walk at all for nice bars and restaurants. It will be a top choice me me when I next visit Paris.

We were only in Paris for one day and one night and needed to leave out of the Montparnasse train station, so I booked us into the Hotel de la Paix. It was very conveniently located for public transportation. The room was quite good for the price we paid, and the staff was very polite and helpful. My husband said the buffet breakfast was a very good buy for 9 euros--lots of choices. I would definitely stay here again.

We had the most wonderful three days in this lovely hotel. Everything about it was perfect from the location to the friendly staff and gorgeous rooms. I would stay here again in a heartbeat and thoroughly recommend it to everyone who visits Paris. Incidentally, if you are looking for a straightforward no fuss place to eat you could do worse than a wee Italian called La Mamma which is just down from the hotel. Turn right and follow the road down past the red canopy of La Rotonde and it's first street on the left. looks like nothing outside but food is delicious and very reasonably priced, especially by Montparnasse standards.In any case we loved this hotel and would defo stay here again.
