This hotel has a good location on a quiet street, within two blocks of the metro station and bus lines. The staff, however, cannot be trusted not to steal from the rooms. Forty U.S. dollars were stolen from one of our suitcases. The bills had been placed in a white envelope and the dollar amount written on the outside. When we returned to the room we counted the money and discovered that two forty dollars had been taken. A couple of days prior to this we had returned from breakfast and were waiting in the hotel lobby when I decided to return to the room to retrieve something. The staff requires guests to leave the room key at the front desk, and when I asked for the key to get into our room the desk clerk became very nervous and said he would have to go with me to the room. He would not just give me the key but insisted on going with me to the room with a master key. On our ride up in the elevator he appeared to be so nervous that I became very uncomfortable and told him to just forget it, figuring that there had been some language miscommunication. I now believe that one of the staff had used our room key to enter the room and search for cash, and he was an accomplice. Some others in our group were staying in the same hotel, and one person had one of the desk clerks walk in on her when she had stayed behind in the room. She said they had tried to use the room safe but found that it did not work properly. Don't trust this hotel. Find another place to stay!
- 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
