I think their star level needs to be revised 2* down. They must have gotten their 4 stars in the 80's.
This hotel is pretty much out-dated from its run-down bar (I gave interviews there but frankly the place is poorly lit, the choices in drinks are very limited (closed during the day), etc....
My first room was more a 2* room than anything else. Very poor noise isolation so almost no sleep the first night.
Upon my complaining I was moved to a higher floor in a brand new room. Very large and of a higher standard. Bathroom was small and very basic. And in any case if your room overlooks the Rue de Littre, you will hear the trash pick up at 6 am EVERY morning..so don't expect sleeping in.
Wifi is spotty at best. TV is small.
On the bright side: great location (next to Montparnasse) and very nice and efficient staff though they never, ever got my breakfast order right.
If I say only foreigners will like this hotel it is because of its old-fashioned Parisian flair...because so many famous writers came here a long time ago...it still has retained some of this "creative" atmosphere with pictures on the wall et al. French and local people are past that and are looking for more modern accommodations.
