Reviewed January 22, 2014

We were beyond pleased with our stay at Hotel Apollon Montparnasse. Sure, the hotel is quite small, but this is Paris. Space is at a premium, and you shouldn't be spending much time in your room anyway. My fiance and I are both quite tall (he's 6'1" and I'm 5'11") and we were plenty comfortable in the room.

We absolutely loved the neighborhood. Between the staff's recommendations and our own searches, we found wonderful places for dinner near to the hotel each night. Bistro L'Envie on the corner right by Pernety Metro was recommended by the hotel and was fantastic. We didn't partake in the breakfast as we felt it unnecessary. There are plenty of small produce markets and boulangeries in the immediate neighborhood. So we left the hotel each morning and grabbed fruit, pastries, and coffee to enjoy while exploring the neighborhood and before starting our sightseeing.

Although the hotel is very conveniently located near the Pernety Metro, there's not really much reason to utilize it. The hotel staff provided recommendations of which bus routes to take to travel to the sights we were planning to visit each day. We live in DC and take the bus whenever possible, as we know that it's one of the best ways to explore a city. For us, these bus recommendations were invaluable, as they allowed us to experience Paris in our own way.

We are unlikely to return to Paris in the near future, Spain and South America are calling our names. However, when we do return, we will not hesitate to stay at Apollon Montparnasse yet again.

Dear travelers,
Good afternoon from Apollon Montparnasse Hotel, and happy new year, too…
We would like to be very thankful to you for your kind message. We are very happy to learn, that you spent a wonderful stay at our house.
Further to your own experience, you saw that room size in Paris is never very big, but you were able to appreciate our rooms new decoration and cleanliness.
Moreover, you were seduced by the charm of our neighborhood (Pernety), looking like a village, with a metro station and so numerous good restaurants and local shops, the French way of life. The 14th district of Paris, after being rebuilt, has been more and more required by French and foreign guests, that want to make a change from too touristic areas of Paris.
We encourage our guests to use local buses, in order to move inside of Paris; it is, really, more pleasant than metro, and you really can see the city.
Helping our guests to organize their discovering of Paris is, as well, a significant part of our work.
Do not hesitate to come back and visit us, for your next trips to our beautiful city.
With warmest regards,
Emmanuel

Read a lot of reviews in regards to the this hotel being quite small. Well, for someone who goes a lot to Paris on business and have been to MANY hotels there, do not expect a lot of them to have big rooms. This is Paris, there are not a lot of spaces when it comes to building infrastructure. I have stayed in smaller before and even though I would agree this one has small rooms, I believe they are reasonable enough. Very clean rooms, well maintained. I have stayed there 5 times now in the last 3 years, and I am going again in 3 weeks. They recently refurbished it and it is nicer now. Excellent customer service, they always try to make your stay enjoyable, which is not usually the case when it comes to Parisian's hospitality. If you are a couple, or on business, or between friends, this is perfect. Not really suitable for families with kids in my opinion. If you are on holiday, most of your time will be spent outside anyway, sightseeing and enjoying some nice food. It is really close to central, and Tube station is near the hotel too., I would recommend it: Not the best hotel I stayed in my entire life for sure, but for Paris, it is pretty good indeed, and for a reasonable price for a 3*

Dear travelers,
Good evening from Apollon Montparnasse Hotel, and Happy new year, as well.
Thank you very much for your very kind message.
Our whole team was very happy to make your stay very pleasant.
You understood perfectly that room size in Paris is never very big, but you highly appreciated our recent renovation at every room, our room cleanliness and our staff helpfulness, which are more important than size by itself.
In spite of all our renovation works, we did not want to increase our room rates, so that guests feel like coming back at our hotel, having another great advantage: its closeness to Pernety metro station that enables you to reach the heart of Paris very quickly.
With kindest regards,
Emmanuel

This hotel, although not your typical "4 or 5 star" rating, is perfect for anyone. Clean, comfortable and friendly. The staff are passionate about their work and are very helpful (genuinely).

Hotel is located on the metro line "13", which is DIRECT line to many attractions. Neighbourhood feels friendly and there are many cafes and places for food and groceries within walking distance. Very convenient.

Taxis from Nord costs about Eur30 (including booking fee and 3 luggages). About the same for return.

Recommend this to anyone.

What is very important for our staff, these are the following points: "cleanliness", "comfort", "hospitality", "helpfulness". And we like our job.
We have to recognize that Pernety neighborhood is a lovely place in Paris, with a metro station (line 13 that enables you to reach the heart of the capital by around 5 minutes), numerous restaurants and local shops.
We hope to welcome you again very soon.

Dear guests,
Good afternoon from Apollon Montparnasse Hotel, and all our best wishes for the new year 2014, as well.
First, we would like to thank you very much for your excellent message, and all our staff has been very encouraged, after reading it.
It is very rejoicing for us to learn that you spend a lovely stay among us for this new year's celebration period, and that we satisfied all your expectations.
You understood perfectly that rooms size in every 2 and 3-star hotel in Paris and even in the old Europe is always a little bit small, but that cleanliness, comfort, a very nice decoration and all the main facilities quality, a helpful staff… are more important points than size.
Thanks to metro station proximity, you can reach the heart of the capital very quickly.
Our car parking places are very often required by our guests, because finding a car parking place in Paris is extremely difficult, you know.
Do not hesitate to come back at our hotel for your next trips to Paris, we will be very glad to see you again among us.
Very kind regards,
Emmanuel

We recently returned from a 2 week stay at Hotel Apollon. This small boutique hotel was very clean and the service very helpful and friendly. The room was small and not enough room to put two peoples luggage, but we sort of expected that in Paris. The room was quite tidy and clean and the bed was comfortable so what more can you ask for. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Thank you to Emanuel, Joel, Alain, & Damien for making us feel at home during our 2 week stay. The only thing I can say that might be a negative is its location. Although it is just down the block from Pernety Metro station, and the Paris underground is extremely well run and reliable, still the hotel is a train ride from most things one might want to do or see in Paris. If you really want your hotel right in the heart of things, perhaps this one is not for you. Nonetheless we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.

Room Tip: Even the double superior room is very small by American standards, so if there are two of you and yo...

Dear travelers,
Hi from Apollon Montparnasse Hotel.
We want to be thankful to you for your nice comment about your stay at our hotel.
We are happy to learn that you spent a lovely stay among us during the two weeks in Paris.
What enables our guests to feel good at our hotel, these are the following points:
Staff kindness and helpfulness;
Rooms comfort and cleanliness, in spite of their size; which is typically an aspect from Paris.
Regarding localization of our hotel: thanks to subway line 13 (from Pernety, at 60 meters walk distance), the rest of Paris is really reachable, such as Champs-Elysées at 5 minutes, for example…
Moreover, the 14 district has become one the most required district in Paris; guests can find there another aspect of the French capital, looking like a village, instead of having noisy and crowd touristic areas.
For conclusion, you were satisfied with the hotel, which is the essential for us.
With warmest regards,
Emmanuel

I booked a family suite at this hotel after reading a previous review on trip advisor.


Emanuel greeted us at reception and was extremely courteous and friendly.

This boutique style hotel was clean and friendly and a far cry from the chain hotels that you can find in Paris.

A++++++

We will return!

This hotel was excellent and the staff inside could not help us enough. Each day they would give us information on the best way to get around. The room itself though small ( we you expect of paris) was quite nice inside and very tidy, the recent renovations that they have done work well.

The only downside to this hotel is that to get to all main tourist attractions it is at least a 20 minute metro ride. The area around montparnasse is quite nice and does not have a tourist feel at all. But is not the reason we came to paris. I would try to book closer to the main part of the city next time.

Dear Sir and Madam,
Hi from Apollon Montparnasse Hotel.
Many thanks for your comment.
We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay at our hotel.
We have to recognize that our rooms size, - and this is the same reality in every 2 and 3-star hotel in Paris, and even in each European big city - , is quiet small. However, you appreciated very much their new decoration, further to our renovation works, their comfort and their cleanliness, - those points being more important than size.
Our hotel is located in a Parisian area, looking like a village, with numerous restaurants, cafés, brasseries and local shops; moreover, Pernety metro is very close to our hotel and metro line n°13 enables our guests to join the heart of Paris very quickly. Most of our guests require more and more this 14th district of Paris.
We hope that you will keep a good souvenir of your experience in Paris Pernety and Montparnasse, and this, in a friendly atmosphere.
Best regards and Happy new year,
Emmanuel
