“Great location, helpful staff!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

While some Americans might consider this room "small" we found it to work great for us! I would say that if we had more luggage we might have had more issues, but we traveled with 2 carry on sized cases and 2 personal cases as well as my large purse. 1 set fit in the cabinet in the room. The shower was a tiny bit small, I might have turned off the water with my hip during my first shower, but I got used to it.

We were on one of the rooms with the door facing the stairs, and still found it pretty quiet. We found this surprising as there was construction next door and we slept late a couple of our days there and were never bothered by construction noise.

The bed was comfortable and we did find the extra blankets in the cabinet helpful. We loved the view, and were shocked how much noise the great double windows kept out. The room was super clean and we found all the staff helpful. They spoke plenty of English for us to get the information we needed. We were also a half block from the metro and very close to the many bike for hire stations. We loved the location and would stay there on our next trip to Paris!

We only spent one night in this hotel but we had a nice time. The hotel is very easy to find, within minutes away from 2 metro stations. You can catch no.4 line directly from Gare du Nord without changing. The hotel is situation in Montparnasse neighbourhood with nice cafes and restaurants. Not too far to walk to the main sights if you like walking in Paris.The room was simple and nicely decorated. The hotel was on a main road but we never hear any road noise from our room. We had the choice to have breakfast in our room (no extra charge), the breakfast was reasonably priced and good. We would stay there again the next time we visit Paris.

Hotel was clean and quiet. The staff was great - especially Ben.
There is a small restaurant across the street to the right on the corner as you exit the hotel. Avoid this place at all costs. The menu prices are NOT what you are charged.

Room Tip: elevator stops at mid floor - so you'll need to carry luggage up/down a few steps

I picked this hotel as part of a birthday trip to the French Open for my other half. We were delighted with this hotel as it is important to us to balance value for money with a certain standard of room and we felt that the Hotel de la Paix delivered this for us. We like to stay in a boutique hotel but hate paying a steep price for it, and I would say this hotel provides a nicely decorated and maintained room, clean and modern bathroom for a good price. The rooms are small which is the trade-off however you are in central Paris and how much time are you planning on spending in your room anyway? I'd rather the rooms were clean and well-looked after than large and tired. The staff were very pleasant, friendly and polite, which we appreciated, and we were very handy for the Metro or for walking around the city. The lifts are tiny and the half landing / stairs combo was quite amusing, but absolutely not a problem and we wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. I can't comment on breakfast as we stayed on a room only basis and were out and about from quite early in the day. My top tip for enjoying the area would be when looking for somewhere to eat/drink in the evening, come out the hotel and turn right, walk down to the main crossroads, cross that road, and keep going straight down if you want a real sense of Montparnasse. It's easy to get distracted at that junction with the amount of bars and restaurants there but I would say it's worth going that litle bit further.

Room Tip: We had a room at the front of the hotel and had no problems whatsoever with noise from the street

The hotel is a small boutique hotel, rooms (as with most capital cities) are very small. Bathroom even smaller - just enough room to get out of the shower.

It was clean and tidy.

Bed was a standard uk double - not particularly comfortable.

Room was very basic, just a desk, desk chair, wardrobe, bed and bedside tables.

It was okay but nothing to write home about.

Be warned its located on a busy road and quite hard to find - every taxi driver struggled to find it!

We had 2 nights in this lovely boutique hotel in October. The room was lovely and clean and had all that we needed for our stay in Paris. It was a great location and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Also hotel was easy to get to from Gare Du Nord Station takes about 30 minutes to get to Raspail Metro Station, Hotel is only 50 metres walk from there. Would love to stay here again if we ever get back to Paris.
