We stayed for the weekend 19 - 21 October.
I really love this district of Paris and have nbeen staying within a kilometre of Montparnasse for several decades but this was my first (and last) time at the Victoria Palace - despite its good location.
The room was fine, the bathroom great and the room was admirably quiet but...
for €340 per night you expect more than this.
The staff were unsatisfactory. The desk manager was a sour older man. The receptionist was a young inexperienced sweet girl of about 25, but lacking professionalism.
The thing that really did it was that the internet in our room was hopeless. Room 308. Maybe a modem problem but they failed to fix it or to seem in the least concerned. Can you believe a four star hotel still tries to pretend it's offering a free wi-fi when if you want downloads you need to be paying extra for a premium service. And the basic simply didn't work 49 times out of 50. My iPad worked in the lobby and breakfast room fine. But I wasted a lot of time failing to get online in the room. For €680 for two nights I expect things to be more professional.
PS The breakfasts were excellent.
