First and foremost with this hotel is it's great location. Very close to the metro station at Edgar Quinet so getting around the city and getting to and from either CDG or Orly Airports is quite easy. The street and immediate area has lots of Cafes, Restaurants, Creperies, Patissierie, Fromagerie, a large shopping centre and interestingly a lot of Cinemas.
The staff at the hotel were very friendly and helpful, they will set up a free WiFi account for you which you can access in your room or anywhere in the hotel and the rooms also have safe deposit boxes. As others have commented the rooms and beds are quite small but overall ok for the price. We actually stayed here twice during our trip (at the start and end of our holiday). The first room had a comfy bed and stand alone proper shower which we much preferred as we are not used to the hand held shower in the bath set up which we had second time around. The second room also had a mattress that has seen better days (really saggy in the middle).
Breakfast is continental style but has a good selection of pastries, cereal, yoghurt etc to get you started for a big day exploring.
Just minutes to two metro stations which made it easy to get around. Busy area with lots of restaurants to choose from. The room was clean with comfortable beds. We would definitely stay again.
This hotel has all we need for our 3 nights in Paris.
First: It's located in Montparnasse, very very close to metro station, only 1 minute walking to Edgar Quinet station. Since my husband and I use the metro a lot, the location is just perfect. Moreover, on saturday morning it has a community market!!! Amazing! You can get anything from vegetables, any kind of cheese until wide variety of sausages.... And you've got the chance to practice your French with the local, since they speak little English. But we manage to buy things there... It's neighborhood is great, with lot of shops you need: laundry, cheap-but-tasty chinese restarurant, supermarket, bakery, cafe. Everything in walking distance.
Second: The staff is friendly, speak english very well,
Third: It's clean and and comfortable. The room itself is rather small. But all hotels in central city in Europe is allways like that. So it doesn't matter. The shower is also well cleaned everyday.
Four: It's budget friedly =D
We stayed in a standard double room this week in Paris & it was great. The room is small but fit our bags neatly with enough room to move around. It was clean and had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. It is centrally located and has all that you would need close by. Laundromat next door, small supermarket in the same street as well as many restaurants to choose from. There are 3 metro stations within 5 minutes walk and we found the area had many locals who spoke English which helped us a lot!
Would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Paris.
