I came to hotel during first trip to Europe with my mother and my sister in July 2013 after reading the reviews here on TripAdvisor and was fairly pleased.
This is a small hotel but for the deal that I obtained on their actual website, it was a steal. I wanted to make sure that we all had our own bed to sleep on and le 55 Montparnasse delivered. The rooms are small yet clean. There was no AC located in our room but the staff assisted us in providing an extra fan. My mom did have a problem when she found out there was not air conditioning in the room but I continuously had to remind her that we are not in America. We also were able to take advantage of the breakfast buffet due to it being included in the deal we obtained on their direct website so had a variety of options to start our day.
The staff did what they could in order to help us become better accommodated at the hotel. They helped us find a good currency exchange location in which we could obtain a great rate of exchange from dollars to euros. They all spoke English well so we were communicate effectively and they did what they could in order to make our stay in Paris enjoyable.
One downside of staying at the hotel when we did was there was construction going on next door so some days during our week stay, we woke up to jackhammers at six o'clock in the morning (not fun). It was difficult to find this hotel if you do not know where to look for the street was closed off due to construction and the sign of the hotel was high up on the side of the building. We had to circle around the block a few times before we found were the hotel was located.
As far as the sites, we either took the taxi, walked or took the bus to and from the major sites. There were plenty of restaurants and bakeries close by along with breakfast and meat options. There were a couple of malls, retail and grocery stores within walking distance so my sister and I went there to do some shopping and pick up some items. We also did walk to and from the Eiffel Tower which took about us about 30-40 minutes from the hotel but were able to take in and appreciate the city.
If you want a hotel that is not located within the touristy areas of Paris, I would recommend this hotel. I would stay at this hotel again. Thank you le 55 Montparnasse for making our stay stress-free.
