“A quick overnight stay”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

Lovely welcome at reception. Very friendly and helpful staff. Great location for Gare Montparnasse, Metro and wandering. Lots of lovely restaurants and bars within a few minutes walk. Rooms are compact, nicely decorated and clean which was all we wanted for an overnight stay. We would struggle if we were there for two or three nights due to space but you get what you pay for. Bathroom needed a few simple repairs to ring it up to standard. Fans are in the room but no air con. The night we stayed it was very humid with a huge storm so sleep wasn't the best.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the road if possible.

This is a small hotel ten minutes’ walk from Gare Montparnasse and right next to the Gaîté metro station. It’s in an area with plenty of choice of restaurants and bars – and, if you don’t mind having to take the metro to get anywhere quickly (it’s a good 30 minute walk to the Ile de la Cité), you could do far worse.

We stayed in two rooms, on different visits at either end of a week’s break. Although they were quite small and basically decorated, both rooms were clean and comfortable. There is no air conditioning in the rooms which is fine if you’re at the back of the hotel where you can’t hear much noise through an open window. Unfortunately, that’s not so easy for those rooms overlooking the busy road at the front although on a night when it was particularly hot, a fan was left in the room to help circulate air.

Like the rooms, breakfast was basic but reasonable. There’s orange juice, cereal, yoghurt, a selection of bread/pastries and, of course, coffee. There’s no bar but the receptionist is happy to uncork any bottles of wine you might bring back; there’s a mini-market right next to the hotel and a better-stocked city supermarket five minutes down the road (we got some well-priced boxes of wine to bring back to the UK from here..... credit cards accepted!). Finally, wi-fi was included in the price.

So, whilst the Arcadie is not the most glamorous or grand hotel I’ve ever stayed in, this is a fine base for any trip to Paris.

One point to note for any first time visitors to Paris, many of the metro stations do not have escalators so you’ll get used to lugging yourself (and maybe your luggage) up and down steps. Although Gaîté is only on one line (13), it IS close to the surface and is so convenient for the hotel as to make it really easy to use. Montparnasse-Bienvenüe (at the main railway station) has plenty of escalators and sits on several lines but it IS much busier and further away. Take your pick!

Room Tip: Rooms at the back of the hotel are definitely quieter

We chose this Hotel because of the reviews and because of its location- the next day we were to leave from Gare Montparnasse at 8:46 and we wanted to stay in the area.
The Receptionist was super-she answered any questions we had and showed exactly where the station was.Well done!
The room was on the small side and a little tired, with some paint peeling. Not a problem for us, but would have been disappointing if we had been staying longer.
Breakfast was due to be served the following morning from 8:00 but we joined the couple who were already in the dining room before it was due to open and were served straight away.
Another well done to the staff.
We would be happy to use it again if we were due to use Gare Montparnasse.

The staff where so helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. Able to advise us and guide us around Paris. We were able to leave the bags before our check in time and also once we had checked out,which made life much easier. The hotel was in the middle of 4 different train stations which was so convenient and made it so easy to get around. Apart from the weather a very enjoyable time was had by all. Thank you

My sister and I stayed at the Hotel Arcadie for a short weekend trip to Paris. The hotel is very handy for the Metro - Line 13 - Gaite just a few feet from the front door of the hotel and station Montparnasse Bienvenue serving Line 12 and Line 4 - about a 5/8 minute walk.
The rooms here are clean, comfortable but small. Bathroom is fine. The lift is small, so avoid if you suffer with claustrophobia. The stairwell is circular - so altogether this hotel is not suitable for travellers with mobility issues.
The reception staff were so welcoming and helpful.
Breakfast is basic - juice, pastries, cereal, yogurt, tea and coffee - but you are in Paris after all so a big breakfast is probably not necessary.
We took in the museums but other travellers might want to check out the Paris Pass or the museum pass - this gives some savings on entrance fees and allows holders to go to alternative shorter entrance queues. The Louvre and the Musee D'Orsay are very popular and you will need to queue. In fact the day we tried for the Musee D'Orsay, the queue was so very long, we gave up and went to the Musee de L'Orangerie in the Tuilleries gardens instead - a smaller museum and still with queues but we got in and were delighted to see some of Monet's Water lillies hung round a circular wall - quite lovely.
Paris, like many city centres can be expensive so do look out for the daily menus - mostly at lunch time and go off the main streets - you will get better value.
One last thing about this hotel - we couldn't see any air conditioning in the bedrooms so the only ventilation on a hot summer's night would be to keep the windows open but this could be noisy!

Small but comfortable room. Ask for one in the back as we did - very quiet. Lift very small as typical of Paris hotels. Breakfast croissants etc very tasty. Staff friendly and helpful. Metro station right outside only took 10 mins to get to Louvre.
