“Good location, nice hotel”
Reviewed August 2, 2008

When you look for this hotel do not look for "Jardins de Paris Alesia" but look for "Montparnasse Alesia" hotel as it is written on the entrance. The hotel is very basic, large room and bathroom, i was staying in the back side of the hotel on the 6th floor so it was nice and peaceful. Breakfast was basic and a good way to start the morning. The bed was a big single bed and very comftarble.
The street the hotel is located in got lots of shops, the area itself is full with cafe's, resturants, retail shops etc.
2 Metro station are in the area, the Alesia station is only 5 minutes walk away, while the Denfert Rochereau is 10-15 minutes walk from the hotel.
All in all, the hotel room was good for a solo traveler like me, although the receptionist should try to be more welcoming to tourists.

This horrible hotel is more expensive than other very nice hotels.
It is far from the metro station and still, it is more expensive than hotels in the same area that are closer to the metro stations.
Evrything inside looks cheap and uncomfortable. It looks like a social housing. The lift is frightening and dirty. Our room was very small and had a glass in front of the bed, like in these hotels were you bring prostitutes!
Not a romantic place at all :(

Situated about 5-10 mins walk from either Alesia or Plaisance metro stations, and from there about 10-20 mins into central Paris. On the opposite side of town to Charles de Gaulle airport, which was about an hour away (although a fairly direct route on the 'B' line).

The hotel reception area was a little shabby with a tiny lift, which could be awkward for those with lots of luggage, children's pushchairs etc. Staff seemed more inclined to help if spoken to in French.

My single room was small but clean and had been refurbished in the last year or two. There was no tea/coffee making facilities in the room (but there's a vending machine in reception); there was a minibar fridge with limited soft drinks & useful for keeping your own drinks in. The TV had a good quality picture but no English/cable channels except CNN news. No hairdryer in the room but there was a spare electric socket - handy if you take your own mini-kettle too (with adaptor, of course!). No safe in the room. The shower head was cracked and water spurted everywhere - but was otherwise fine with good temperature.

The rooms are supposedly sound-proofed but the doors can't be - noise from other guests in the corridors could be a problem for light sleepers (take those ear plugs). Shame really, because the hotel is actually in a pretty quiet location - I kept the window open all night and traffic noise wasn't a problem.

Overall, a good basic no-frills hotel.

  • Liked — cheap and conviniently located

We had a nice time at the hotel. The rooms are clean and quite spacious. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Moreover, the hotel is very well situated with easy access to the heart of Paris. We were there on holidays and would highlyt reccommend this hotel. Very good price for quality!!! We plan to return there for our next stop to Paris

Booked this hotel with very little notice over the Easter Bank Holiday as our existing booking was cancelled at the last minute. The hotel was clean, the staff friendly and polite and had no problems with us arriving back late in the evening. Breakfast was included in the price, it was basic, two choices of cereal, croissants or breadrolls and jam. The bread rolls were inedible, but everything else was OK. Fairly easy to get into the centre of Paris on the metro.
Our room was clean and felt secure and well locked etc but was really rather small, the bathroom was compact but fairly new, the double bed was small, which was less of a problem than the fact it was really quite uncomfortable. I am in my mid 20s and have stayed in all sorts of strange places, sleeping is not usually a problem for me, but this bed was really uncomfortable, hard in a rather strange way!
All in all it was probably about right for a 2* hotel, everything apart from the uncomfortableness of the bed was fine, recommended.

Seven nights at this well ubicated hotels was comfortable enough to give it a 4/5 score. The rooms are small with the minimun commodities, but for the price we think the rate value/price are a very good combination. The recepcionists was helpfull and speak french and good english (no one in France seems to speak spanish). The bathroom is very tiny, but remodeled and with a modern touch. The shower is only for one person at once. The bed was large and comfortable.

The hotel is not near a metro station, but the Alesia station is about four (4) blocks. We walk all nights from the station to the hotel with no regrets about unsecurity or tireness. It's a good excersice in the worst case.

We recommend this hotel if you don't need extra commodities or if you travel to Paris only for the pleasure of the city, and you plan to use the room only to sleep and rest.
