“Good hotel, good service, great location”
Reviewed April 1, 2014

We spent in Villa Des Artistes four nights in March. The room on the second floor was comfortable and the bathroom was elegant. The toiletry was just basic: have the toothpaste and the shaving set with you. The bed was a little hard. There was a kettle in the room and a modern, flat TV with many channels in several languages. On arrival Wifi was down, but it was fixed on the following day. The safety box in the room was broken. It took two days to fix but we were offered to use the reception's safe. The cleaning was perfect. The staff was very polite and helpful.
We had breakfast at the hotel and found it adequate. The breakfast is served until 10.30 but filling the food in the buffet gets poor already before 10.00 so you'd better come early. Our breakfast was prepaid, as the room was, and its price was quite reasonable.
The hotel is located centrally and the main attractions within the city center can be reached by walking. There is a lot of restaurants in the area between Rue Delambre, Rue d'Odessa and Bd du Montparnasse. We arrived at the Orly airport and took the Orlybus to the underground station Denfert-Rochereau, which is located two stops from station Vavin, the closest one to the hotel.

The hotel was very nice and in a convenient location, close to the Metro and not far from a Market. The front desk staff were very helpful and friendly, especially Beatrice. She always greeted us with a smile and was already willing to answer our questions or point us in the right direction. The breakfast was very good and the staff in the dining area were always very helpful and pleasant. The hotel is close to Luxembourg Gardens which is a wonderful park to walk through.

Lovely hotel near montparnasse and Vavin. Has interesting modern art touches. Make sure you eat next door at l'architoque. What a gem of a brasserie. Hotel room was quite clean and comfortable. Staff was helpful.

For travelers interested in a charming off-center but in-town neighborhood without the noise or congestion of some central Parisian neighborhoods, this hotel is a very good choice. Near the intersection of Boulevards Montparnasse and Raspail, and just four blocks southwest of the Luxembourg Gardens, the neighborhood is full of good cafes, mid-priced restaurants, and casual charm. The Luxembourg Gardens are a favorite with both Parisian and expat joggers. The hotel itself offers clean, well-cared for rooms, with comfortable beds and ample, sufficiently updated bathrooms. There are also small desks -- but make sure to ask for a lamp. The staff are both professional and pleasant; the hotel as a whole seems well managed. Walls between rooms are not as sound proofed as in some hotels. But the ambience of the hotel is peaceful & quiet. Overall a very pleasant spot in a charming but calm corner of Paris.

Room Tip: No room in the hotel has significant street noise, but if you want a view you have to opt for the to...

We enjoyed this little hotel but it was noisy during the day when we were trying to nap after our long flight but overall, a nice place. I am not sure of the neighborhood, it is so difficult in Paris to figure out which neighborhood is the best location related to the activities you have planned. Their are several small restaurants and bakeries nearby and the subway stop is close too. The only negative issue about this hotel was that when the hotel clerk called for a cab and the cabdriver took us on a joyride. We were totally scammed and missed our dinner reservations that we had made months before. When we returned to the hotel and told the clerk our story, he did not seem the least bit concerned. He didn't attempt to assist us in finding a different restaurant or calling the restaurant that we had planned on dining at. He was very dismissive. Bottom line, subway all the way!

Room Tip: Ask for a room that is not next to the maids storage closet.
