Very nice boutique hotel in a great location with the Metro just right outside. A few points: - nice cafes just outside - conveniently located - walking distance to a lot of popular sites - safe neighbourhood - typically small European rooms - not accessible for those with wheelchairs/walkers - breakfast room for 10E - friendly staff

My main reason for staying at this hotel is location. It is not in the absolute center but there are great communication choices right outside. The hotel itself is not for people with bad legs since there is a staircase up to reception. My room, which I shared with a friend, was very small so be good friends or much... More

We had a small but nice room in this hotel. The location was perfect for us. We stayed on the 6th floor and the view was really awesome. We could even see the Eifel tower at night from our window! The breakfast was a little bit expensive but you can find "boulangerie" just in front of the hotel with real... More

Hotel is located within a 2 minutes walk from Denfert station (train, subway and bus). Small but very clean rooms. Lobby on second floor, no elevator to the lobby, only from lobby to rooms. They are very nice, friendly and speak English. Breakfast could improve, just tea or coffee, some croissants and some basics. Wi Fi could also be better.... More

The hotel was very well maintained, with modern interiors and bathrooms. I have stayed in smaller rooms in Paris, for higher prices., So, this was good. lThere are ots of restaurants... More

This cute little hotel had just enough for what we needed to end our days and sleep. The staff were very welcoming and helpful, which makes or breaks a place for me. Rooms were small and minimal but comfortable. Beds were very comfortable. Rooms were well sound proofed, but the street below is busy if it becomes necessary to open... More

Very well located (right near entrance to Catacombs) and front desk staff were helpful to requests. But even for Parisian standards, room was small and not worth the money I paid for it. And Wifi was poor and continually dropping out..

Me and my mum recently visited Paris for a weekend away, and this hotel is perfect. The metro station is right outside the hotel, and is about 10 minutes to the Notre Dame, and about 15 minutes from other landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower. Once you use the metro a couple of times it gets easier to use. The... More

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.
