Hotel Miramar
Ranked #1,235 of 1,804 Hotels in Paris
Reviewed July 6, 2013

If you're exploring this hotel, you're not looking for memorable Paris pied-à-terre. This is an inexpensive, everything-is-fine place to stay within spitting distance of Gare Montparnasse, and therefore great if you're heading out the next morning on the TGV, or have just come in on it.
The rooms are a bit small, but clean enough. The hallways are a bit stuffy, but who cares. Wifi works. Unlike some reviewers below, we found the receptionist helpful and friendly. It's comfortable walking distance to Jardin the Luxembourg if you want some air, and to Notre Dame cathedral if you want to have a bit of a touristy walk. The Air France buses to CDG stop only a short distance away (on the other side of Gare Montparnasse); if your luggage is reasonable, you can walk it over. The street is a bit quieter than in some other hotels close to the railway station.

The hotel is advertised as 3-star but I would rate it an average 2-star. Small rooms; very basic (and rather scruffy) bathroom sparsely provided with towels and toiletries. A kettle for tea/coffee (which is unusual for France) but only flimsy plastic cups and no milk. No fridge or safe in the room.

However, the room was clean, the bed was comfortable, and despite overlooking a busy road junction and railway station it was not too noisy (though the absence of air conditioning means you need to open the windows at night). The staff on reception were polite and helpful.

If you are travelling to or from Gare Montparnasse the Miramar is ideally situated. The station is literally opposite, about a two minute walk. Though the hassle of the most complicated metro interchange in the world (Montparnasse-Bienvenüe) is best avoided: there are other metro stations almost as near. There is no shortage of good and fairly cheap restaurants and cafés where it is possible to have a cheaper breakfast than that in the hotel.

Paris hotels are expensive so by Paris standards it is probably average value for money. If I paid the same price anywhere else in Europe (except London I suppose) I would expect four-star service.

If you just need to stay for 1 night or 2 and you need to be close to Gare Montparnasse, then this is a good place. There are shops, cafes, restaurants around the place and just across is Montpartnasse station where you will also find the city bus terminal. A short walk is Saint Germain and just outside the hotel is the Montpartnasse Bienvenue metro. So it really is all about the convenience. The lift and the rooms are tiny as expected but clean but walls are so thin that you can hear people talking in the next room otherwise I think this hotel is okay. I would still recommend this hotel.

I have been only once to Paris, so some people might not agree with me.
I have visited Paris with my wife and I have booked the Hotel on advance. For my opinion, the hotel was in a very good location, but the employees of the shift when I arrived was very rude without any reason and that gave me a bad impression about the hotel in general. The next morning the rest of the staff was more friendly. However I liked the place. It is a little bit narrow in the corridors, but maybe that is normal for Paris.

The other thing that I liked in this hotel, is the breakfast which was a typical a french breakfast. One of the best things about this hotel is that it is located above one of the metro stations, which connects you with all parts of Paris.
Depending on your taste, nearby you have Creperies, Turkish döners, McDonald, Restaurants.

I would recommend this hotel because of it location.

I had a room at the the top, there only 2 rooms on the six floor anyway, great views over the place, very close to Montparnasse Train Station. The room was big, very clean, quiet and usual standard breakfast. Even had coffee facilities inside which not many french hotels have.Would recommend as staff was very friendly ..

Room Tip: ask for rooms on the six floor

The hotel was a last minute choice we had when we landed in Paris for a weekend. Our primary interest was to roam in the city and a place to hit the sack and freshen up nothing more, so this was fine.The hotel itself is small and reasonably clean.The location is the best, bang next to the metro station. The single room was very cramp and basic. The place is fine if its just a place to rest at night and roam around during the day. Do not expect anything great.

I'm surprised this hotel got any positive feedback at all.

Our first bad surprise was straight upon arrival when we were greeted with the following welcoming words: "The lift doesn't work and your room is on the 6th floor. Sorry about that but we had informed you by mail a month ago." Needless to say I had not received any prior warning neither from the hotel nor Booking.com.

Second bad surprise: the room we were given on the last floor was smelling fresh paint, to the point of the unbearable. The receptionist confirmed that the room had been freshly repainted 3 days before our arrival. As the smell was still there after a couple of hours of ventilation, we've requested and got a new room on the 5th floor. Problem: there was only one bed instead of 2 in the former room. And there came the...

Third bad surprise: we had to carry ourselves the mattress of our daughter from the room on the 6th to the room on the 5th!

At least Miramar had the decency to charge us a reduced room rate though, to be 100% honest, I think we shoul have been paid rather than pay them.

Miramar: never, ever again.
