we stayed in this beautiful hotel for New year (3 nights). It was perfectly situated on the Raspail Avenue in the Montparnasse area of Paris.
Like all old buildings, the rooms are small but perfectly adequate for our needs, after all with all those lovely sights to see who wants to stay in their hotel room?!
The lift again is small, but myself, husband (who isn't a small guy) and our large case were able to fit in no problems at all. It does stop between floors, but this only means you need to go up 1 small set of stairs.
The room was lovely and the bathroom, immaculately clean! The wifi (when we used it) was easy to access
We chose not to eat breakfast in the hotel, choosing instead to join the Parisians, and eat ours on the move, so we cannot comment on the food.
All the staff that we came into contact with were extremely friendly and helpful. On our first day, we were given a tube map and shown all the best stops for what we wanted to see.
The tube is definitely the best way to get around and so easy to use.
From Charles De Galle airport, take the Blue line (B) towards Denfert Rochereau and then its a quick jump onto the pink line (4) (towards Clignancourt) Raspail stop. Upon leaving the station, take the second Sortie (exit) to your right, this will bring you up onto the hotels side of the road, the hotel is then behind you, 2 minutes walk.
If you do chose the tube, take a passport photo with you, you can then purchase a ticket/card in airports tube station for 20euros less each than the normal price. We paid 57euros each and to be honest it was our best spend! but had we known, we would have taken a passport picture for the saving (we know for next time!)
There are loads of great places to eat everywhere around Paris that cover every pocket size!
we will most definitely use Hotel De La Paix again and have no reservations in recommending it
