This hotel is in a traditional building and the 14th. It is in very good shape, the rooms are nice and typical and size of most Parisian hotels. It is conveniently located within a 5 to 10 minute walk of the M4 and Denfert-Rochereau RER station with an abundant amount of shopping and dining options available in the immediate area.... More

There are many good points about this hotel, many of which are covered in other reviews here. It is good value for money, clean and quiet.

The Sophie Germain Hotel was entirely renovated last year. Each floor is decorated in a different color scheme, and not all floors are pictured on the web site.

We are happy that you did overall enjoy your stay with us. It is true that just about all Paris hotel rooms will seem a bit small by American standards. That is especially the case in the center of town, and in the classic stone buildings, most of which date from the renovation of Paris under Napoleon III between 1852... More

This hotel is very modern, clean, comfortable and quiet. It is also really close to Denfert-Rochereau station and the catacombs. Other tourist attractions like the Eiffel Tower the Louvre are relatively close also. We got our room for EUR85/night which is pretty good given the location. Rooms were a bit on the small side but that didn't take away from... More

Thank you, we do try to accommodate the change of travel plans of our guests, whenever our room availability allows it. Being a relatively small (32 rooms) independent hotel allows us to be flexible, and to focus more on the needs of each one of our guests. More

As you pointed out, not all hotels in Paris are equipped with air conditioning, but we are. France has moderate weather year round, but can occasionally get really hot around July and August.

This was an excellent hotel for our recent trip to Paris! It was convenient to the metro and an adorable market street. The patisserie across the street was amazing! We loved our stay here. Clean, quiet, and affordable boutique hotel! The staff was friendly and helpful.

Staying in Montparnasse

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.
