Pros: This is a functional hotel. I paid 60 euros/night to upgrade to a "deluxe" room, which was hardly deluxe but quite comfortable and quiet. The restaurant is good and the bar is small but nice. Breakfast downstairs is decent. The free internet is reliable.
Cons: Location, location, location. At one corner of the Gare Montparnasse complex, this is a charmless part of Paris. Coming out of the hotel you are faced with concrete. Big buses idle to the left, trucks to the right. Around the corner, the crowds around the Montparnassse station are not inviting. To be sure, you can walk to the Blvd Montparnasse area in 10 minutes. I wish that I had researched this better and chosen a more centrally located hotel for my brief trip to Paris (the hotel was chosen by the organizers of the conference that I was attending).
The hotel staff are friendly and helpful, but the hotel seems understaffed.
For each of the five days I stayed here the lobby was crowded with large tour groups. This is fine if you are a member of the group, but not so nice if you are alone.
There is no fitness center or gym, which is normal for a mid-priced hotel in Paris, but if you like to run its a 20 minute jog to the Jardin Luxembourg (which is a wonderful place to run).
Bottom line: The lack of charm in this corner of Paris means I am not coming back to this hotel.
