“Lovely hotel in great location”
Reviewed January 18, 2013 via mobile

The hotel is perfectly located. Only a few minutes walk from RER station a 40 minute train ride from the airport. Close to metro station, and plenty of bars and restaurants only a very short walk from the hotel. Not as cheep as eating in the latin quarter, but not too bad if you choose carefully. Our room was small but perfectly adequate, nice and warm and very clean, although decor and bathroom was starting to look a little tired. Could not fault the staff.

Villa Montparnasse is a beautifully decorated hotel with wonderful service and a great location just a minute away from Rue Daguerre with all its remarkable food shops and restaurants, chocolate shops, florists, etc. We had a lovely room facing the street, which I asked for. Compliments to Prity ( I don't know the correct spelling of his name) who was our concierge during check in and very helpful throughout the say. He was really excellent with all the guests. All the staff were very helpful and there was always someone on at night if you returned after a late dinner.

One can walk to Boulevard Montparnasse (or take the metro for a few minutes) area but the train station is quite close to take you anywhere in Paris. The central heating in the hotel was individually controlled in each room so it was perfect, the bathrooms are large and well appointed and the balcony with the gorgeous view was a lovely addition.

I will recommend this to hotel to anyone travelling to Paris and will definately stay here next time.

This hotel is perfectly adequate and you will awake each day and know your in Paris, not in some chain hotel in any city in the world. Two large windows with balconies that overlook the area. The rooms are small for American Standards but perfectly normal for Paris standards. If you have more then two suitcases or duffels you will have an issue with space. the rooms are quiet, the hot water hot and plentiful. The beds are like concrete but there are two wool blankets inthe armoire you can use for padding that worked out well.

Most of the staff very friendly. There is one night desk clerk that should be fired. He is rude and very absent. Very unhelpful and really is the only reason I would think twice about staying there again. If you were to need any help you would be in a lot of trouble trying to get it.

The best part of this hotel was the location. One block from major metro station and direct train to CDG. Many Cafes and a wonderful street market behind the hotel with bakeries and stores. Easy walk to Montparnasse famous cafes and the 6th district with all the storied sites.

The Hotel area is busy but gets quiet late at night although there is a hospital near by and u hear sirens invest in some earplugs you will sleep just fine.

Dont bother buying the hotel breakfast you can walk 10 paces and be at a bakery or cafe with anything you need. Monoprix just around the corner.

The room we had 605 was lone of the larger classic rooms. Room 405 we declined because of smell of smoke.

This hotel is work 95E per night.

Room Tip: Try to get the rooms facing the cemetary, wonderful views

Arrived at 12.45pm and was told check-in only at 2pm. Ok no problem, so we went for lunch and returned at 1.50pm, and was told by the same Receptionist with a straight face "it is still not 2pm". Checked into the first room which did not have enough space to fit our baby pram and 2 luggage, so went back to Reception to ask for another room. Obviously being low season (late November), they had other vacant rooms readily available in the same category and we were allocated a 'bigger' room. This of course raised the question about what the initial fuss was for in checking us in 10 minutes before 2pm. Anyway, the second room was slightly bigger, but required us to semi-fold the baby pram, a small travelling baby pram, in order to get through the doorway which had a tight 90-degree angle before getting into the room.

Room had a nice large window, and through it a full view of the cemetry in front. Furniture and fixtures were quite worn off, with 'battle scars' everywhere. Wall paper in front of the dressing table had many splatter marks, perhaps from food/drinks/cosmetics. Bathroom grouting was mouldy in several places. Corner of the room where the bed sits had urine smell, which I had unfortunately noticed only when I jumped into the bed ready to sleep. By then it was going to be too much of a hassle of pack up and change rooms, so I did not bother. Luckily I was really too tired and slept through it.

Overall poor experience, although location was excellent close to the metro/RER and proximity to many good and affordable restaurants.

Booked through Eurostar was great value. I have visited Paris often but never this area, found it very Parisen, not a tourist trap.
Good links to Metro and particularly Gare de Nord via the RER, although not as pleasant as the Metro it's quick.
Hotel very comfortable, stayed in. 'Classical' room which I understand is better than the 'superior'.
Road outside reasonably quiet.
The staff were polite and helpful.
Did not have breakfast in the hotel, found a local cafe where breakfast was ver good value.
Will probably return to the hotel when I next go back.

Room Tip: Not the superior, upper floors always best.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
La combinaison exotique entre plantes, materiaux et mineraux accorde a l'hotel Villa Montparnasse le visage d'une maison coloniale. La couleur acajou, l'omnipresence du bois, la lumiere naturelle qui joue les contrastes appellent l'esprit safari dans chaque piece. Une decoration par petites touches est inspiree par le Lion de la place Denfert-Rochereau, tout proche. Un couloir en forme de goutte d'eau dessert les 46 chambres dotees d'une salle de bain retro melant le charme du marbre et du bois et la robinetterie a l'ancienne. La lumiere apprivoisee entretient une ambiance chaleureuse et cree des zones de convivialite, comme la reception dans le lobby pave de verre ou la salle du petit-dejeuner qui profite de cette meme luminosite. Le coin bar pres de l'accueil avec la presse a disposition incite a s'attarder et accentue le cote "demeure" de l'etablissement. ... more   less
