Just gorgeous. We stayed for a week from 26Dec13-3Jan14 and it was a perfect base for Paris. You couldn't ask for more accommodating staff, particularly Morgan, our 6yr old took quite a shine to her and so did we. All speak English well. Free Wifi. Breakfast was cheap to include each day and had enough variety to satisfy. An endless supply of restaurants close by made each night easy. We regularly walked to Saint Germain / Saint Sulpice as we had friends there and it was such a pleasant and safe stroll both day and night. Close to 2 metro stops it made getting around Paris so simple (including the RER lines to airport and Disneyland) and the train system there is so easy and reliable. Galleries Lafayette was only a few minutes walk (not the flagship store) but we just loved all the little shops around the streets. The room was lovely, quaint and kept very clean. Beds and linen very comfortable and loved the heated towel racks particularly in the winter. The safe was handy to store valuables and plenty of hanging space for clothes. So quiet, you wouldn't know we were right in the heart of the action just one street away. A coin laundrette literally 30 seconds away with a Starbucks across the road to have a drink whilst you wait. We will definitely be back. Taxi had a little trouble finding the place, be strict with them and stick with the actual address, it is definitely there, don't let them tell you any different, there is a Starbucks on the corner to the Rue Jules-chaplain.

Room Tip: We had a room back off the street and it was so quiet and felt so secure,

I stayed here in November 2013 for a long weekend (Friday to Monday) with my partner and his parents. We were very happy with the hotel - it's quiet, comfortable, and the staff are extremely helpful (they helped me organise birthday flowers for one of the others). It's an excellent base for a sightseeing weekend as it's near the RER B but also only a very short walk from Jardin de Luxembourg, at msot a 30 minute walk from Notre Dame etc, and approximately 20 minutes walk from Montparnasse-Bienvenue. There are plenty of restaurants, cafes and bars nearby so we only had the hotel breakfast on one of the days, but it was very good with plenty of food and lots of choice.

I came to Paris for a week with my mother. I have lived in Paris previously but this was her first trip and I can certainly say that this hotel offered a wonderful experience in my personal favorite neighborhood in the city. The hotel is also a five minute walk to the Jardin du Luxembourg and 15 minutes maximum to the Odéon stop in Saint Germain and Saint Sulpice (all great places to visit). Staff was helpful and friendly and the rooms were extremely clean and attractive. There are also great restaurants within walking distance. We will certainly stay here on our next vacation to Paris.

We stayed 4 nights in this very nice hotel which is located in a very quiet street next to Luxembourg Gardens and 20 seconds from Montparnasse Blvd. A minute walk from the Metro and very close to the RER station (train to the airport) so we didn't need even one taxi on our stay! There are great restaurants and Patisseries just nearby so you get a great experience of Paris. The rooms are very comfortable in comparison to other Parisian properties and there is a satellite TV so you can even watch some English news before you go to bed (not trivial in Paris so it should be appreciated). A shower curtain would be nice but that is the only "criticism" I can come up with... The staff was extra friendly and everyone there knows English and are there to help your every need. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: We were in room 50 and it was excellent.

This small boutique hotel is ideally situated a short walk from Boulevard Montparnasse and is within walking distance of the Luxembourg Gardens, restaurants, Ile de la Cite and shopping. The staff was very helpful the rooms were clean and pleasant. It gave the sense of an oasis in the midst of the bustling city.

This hotel is a short distance from the busy intersection of the boulevards Montparnasse and Raspail where there are numerous bars and cafes and a Metro stop. There's a convenient underground parking (Vinci Park) only a short walk from the hotel. The hotel staff were friendly and the room, though not spacious, was clean and attractive. Being in an old building there was a degree of noise from the other rooms but it was tolerable. The negative point was the bed. Even with a mattress topper it was still very hard and our two nights were uncomfortable because of it. As a result I probably wouldn't stay there again which is a shame as it really is a nice little hotel in a convenient part of the city.
