Spent a wonderful week at the Solarhotel. The rooms are relaxing and clean and contain everything we needed. The breakfast is included and very good. The hotel locates in a quiet neighbourhood outside the heart of the city, with very easy transportation, it gets you any major attractions within minutes.

We are a family couple with 7 years old son. Arrived at the hotel on 31st of May in a terrible rainy weather, but it was rather earlier for check-in. Despite the fact that there were still no available double rooms, we were given a studio for the same prize in a partnering hotel just around the corner. It is... More

The location was excellent! Only a short walk from the RER and Metro stations and best of all, just around the corner from the food market street. This street had 2 supermarkets with excellently priced food. Also so many cafes, a fish market, fruit and vegetable market and wonderful patisseries!! We had understood from our booking details that breakfast was... More

We've been going to Paris for years but this was our first visit to the Solar Hotel. It won't be our last. No, they don't speak good English, it's all very informal, no mod cons like air conditioning, a bit shabby ...all those negative views are right. But....it's laid back, friendly, you can eat goodies bought from the local shops... More

Every time I come to Paris I stay at this hotel. The staff are kind, the price is right, the location is easy to get to, and the nearby pedestrian street is full of restaurants where you can dine. Additionally the coffee is delicious, the baguettes and croissants are plentiful, and the bio soaps and shampoos smell divine.

This was a small boutique hotel, that catered to a French clientele. Its signature was being eco-friendly, which I wasn't thrilled about. For example, the AC was only run when the temperature was consistently over 85F outside, and our sheets were only washed once a week. Some visitors may be comfortable with this, but it was a bit of surprise... More

The whole concept of this hotel is excellent. It is unfortunate that fans are not available in the heat of summer and I would advise anyone booking this hotel to ask for a room at the back since the window must be open for air and it is noisy on the street with a late bar/restaurant across the way.

Me and my girlfriend had a very pleasant week in the Hotel Solar. I had initially found the hotel by googling Paris hotels with bicycle storage (not easy to find in the city), as we arrived by bike from the Eurostar and continued by bike to Holland after Paris. The hotel stores its own free-to-use bikes in the garden, so... More

The location is really good: nice district with good connections and lots of original shops and restaurants. The hotel itself... hmm... could be better. I had a feeling like the idea of being "Eco" was just an excuse to save the money (for breakfast they often gave us bread and croissants from the day before, while the staff was eating... More

This hotel was a breath of fresh air, friendly, nice rooms, good breakfast and close to everything. I have already given the details out to friends. To the person who says it is a B&B, clearly you don't understand French hotels only international ones and french Breakfasts are what you get there, Croissant and bread with coffee. I just wish...

Neighborhood Profile
Montparnasse
The namesake tower of Montparnasse dominates over the landscape but the fun part is the throbbing life that goes on below it. Bright lights, busy cinemas, brasseries and diners encompass hidden museums and parks to entertain the masses. Long avenues lead away from the tower to take you to unsuspecting places and historical monuments and treasures. In between lie adorable ivy-covered houses with beams and small gardens to match. Just a short metro ride away from the center of Paris this neighborhood has something for every hour of the day.
