We originally booked a Eurostar deal for two at the Villa Montparnasse Hotel, but were sent by them to Villa Pantheon due to problems with our room.
The Hotel itself is in the Latin Quarter quite near to the Pantheon, and walking distance to the River Seine, Notre Dame and many other places. One of the main advantages is the proximity to stations on the Metro (Maubert Mutualite), and the RER mainline (Notre Dame/St.Michel) easy to get to places and back after a long and tiring day out sight-seeing. The front office staff were helpful, and spoke good English.
Our reservation did not include breakfast which was 15 Euros per person. I tried the breakfast on the first day, but did not enjoy it as everything was cold. The next day I had breakfast in the restaurant round the corner.
The Room we originally booked at Villa Montparnasse was a superior; which we were told would be upgraded for the inconvenience. But I did not bother checking.
The Room at the Villa Pantheon we stayed in I assume, was a superior or higher on the first floor facing the courtyard, was decorated in Dark colours with nice solid wood furniture and wooden floor. Unfortunately a wall of the room backed on to the elevator shaft, which made a noise like a lion grumbling throughout the day and night. Not sure if it were the housekeeping staff cleaning the room on top of us every morning or if guests checking out, but the noise from upstairs did wake us up pretty early..
The beds though not uncomfortable were pretty hard and the pillows narrow and flat. What I found a bit odd was: 2 single mattresses pushed together with one cover in a double room rather than a double mattress. This meant a seam & dip in the middle. There was a minibar / fridge and a safe but unfortunately no tea / coffee making equipment.
The Bathrooms though clean were small. we noticed that one of the three bulbs in the bathroom fused after we checked in; we let reception know. The chap from reception came upstairs, had a look and assured us that someone would fix it, but in the 3 days we stayed there nobody did and one more of the bulbs fused on the second day making the bathroom pretty dark on the last day.
The Hotel has Wifi, the key can be obtained by registering at reception.
Overall an ok stay. Next time I won’t pay a premium for the 4 star tag, and book somewhere cheaper in Zone 3 of Paris metro/RER.
