The Hotel Aiglon was very modern and clean. The staff was helpful and knowledgeable. The location was great. There was easy access to metro and train, Many good restaurants near by and within walking distance.

A very nice hotel with very service-minded staff. Calm location, yet just a few minutes walk from the busy entertaining life of central Paris. Very well-kept rooms with good standard. Nice, newly refurbished bathrooms of great standard. Maybe a little inaccesible if you are disabled, the stairs are steep and the elevator small. Would definitly consider to stay there next time I return to Paris.

Next to the Raspail metro station, in the heart of Montparnasse

Old building, descent rooms, professional, smiling and friendly personnel. The area is not the best in Paris, but there is quite a lot of activity around. Breakfast is good value for 14 euro, with absolutely great service from the staff.

Wifi gives you a bit of headache since it disconnects all the time and every time you have to login again. The small lift can also be a problem at times when it is very busy and there is long wait. Another negative is they add a 15euro commission to the taxi they book you to the airport. Not very politically correct.

Dear Zuiveld,

Thank you very much for your review that helps us to improve our service and the quality of Hotel Aiglon Paris.

Regarding the problems that you encountered with the WIFI, we are aware of these disconnections and currently working with our supplier to offer guests an efficient free WIFI connection. This should be fixed in a few weeks.

To answer you on the 15-euro commission that you mention in your comment, I am afraid a misunderstanding occurred. The hotel offers an airport shuttle service, which is different from a regular taxi service because it is planned in advance and therefore more reliable to go to the airport. As agreed while booking, this service is priced 65 euros. To secure your booking, the hotel asked you a deposit (15 euros) and you just had to pay the difference to the driver (50 euros).
I am sorry for this misunderstanding and I hope this explanation is clear for your.

We look forward to welcoming you again on your next visit to Paris.

Sincerely yours,

Room nice, but it was #12 across from the elevator and close to ground level so it was a little noisy. The front desk was helpful. Transportation to the airport was 65E and they arranged it and the driver was right on time. Easy to walk to Luxembourg gardens and Open bus tour pick up across street.

so tired, noisy, horrible staff. small room.

oh AND the WiFi does_not_work (unless you happen to be standing on top of the front desk).

AND there was no aircon / no heat - they said they were "turning it on" on Wednesday that week. whatever.

we even had a "renovated" room; horrible evening staff person lied straight to my face by telling me that we had one of the quiet rooms - because it was on the corner (facing an intersection of 3 streets ? and just above Le Jockey bar ? we were on the first floor). so couldn't open the window bc too much noise and zero ventilation in the room. lovely !

we checked out early, got a room down the street for less money and it was 5x nicer. i am really surprised by the other positive reviews here

the location is also a bit soul-less (Rue Raispail) - doesn't feel like you are "in" a neighborhood. and this is Paris !

positives? the bathrooms in the renovated rooms are OK. also, new comfortable bed (except you can't sleep bc of the noise/temperature issue).

Room Tip: ask for an interior room, if you have to stay here (not that they will try to accommodate you anyway...

Great deal in Montparnasse. We stayed for three days with our two sons in a family room. Great value, very nice breakfast, and mostly very friendly staff. Also convenient from the airport (CDG), as it is only 10 min walk from Port Royal where you can catch the RER. Nice market in Edgar Quinet nearby on saturdays, and close to Tour Montparnasse, for great views of Paris, without the queues of the Tour Eiffel. Also great places to eat for a family just around the corner on Blvd. Montparnasse

A Parisian friend of mine selected this hotel for me and I was extremely pleased. The room was well made, the breakfast excellent and the staff friendly and helpful. The location was also extremely convenient near the metro and also the multitude of restaurants along Montparnasse.
