This was my first stay at the Raspail Montparnasse. I was looking for a reasonably priced hotel in the Montparnasse area and booked a room for three nights. The reception was warm and welcoming and everything seemed clean and well cared for. My room, a double with twin beds and a sofa/extra sleeping space in the entryway, was spotless. I loved the names of French artists on the outside of each door, and I was delighted that my room bore the name of Raoul Dufy, one of my favorite artists. The bathroom was more than adequate and even contained a bidet.
The location is perfect, especially for first-time visitors to Paris or those who have only a few days to spend in the city. The metro stop Vavin is less than a block away, which made getting to the hotel from CDG via the metro quite convenient. There are tons and tons of restaurants in Montparnasse, including several that have long and interesting histories, among them La Coupole, Le Select, and La Rotonde. Also within walking distance is the bustling rue Daguerre.
Although there's nothing really special about this hotel, the rooms are clean, the location is great, and the prices are less than one might spend in a comparable hotel in the area.More
