      • Couple

        Staff was extremely pleasant and helpful, taking time to suggest sites to see as well as transportation to get there easily. Great location for access to Montparnasse train station and also Metro, city buses, and even the rer to Charles de Gaulle airport. Highly recommend.

      • Couple
        8.8

        -Very well located, especially if you're coming from cdg airport. Also close to a lot of metro stations -Right opposite from a road full of small food shops: fromagerie, boulangerie, fruits, vegetables and anything else you could possibly want -Right opposite the entrance for the catacombs (although we didn't go) -Within walking distance (~15 mins) of the Gare de Montparnasse and a fantastic view of the Eiffel tower right behind the station -Staff was generally very helpful and nice

        -The rooms were a little small, but about normal for Paris hotel rooms at this budget -No elevator up to the lobby, which is a little annoying but the concierge is willing to help you carry your bags -Breakfast was a little on the pricey side, but there are plenty of places to eat around the hotel so it's not really a problem

      • Couple
        7.8

        The location is good, the staff is very helpful, the room is not very big but quite clean.

        The bathroom is a little bit too small.

      • Couple
        8.2

        The room was clean and comfortable with a view of the Eiffel Tower from our balcony. The location provided excellent access to all parts of Paris via the metro. Restaurants, markets and cafes were all very close.

        There was no ice machine and it was really difficult to find ice to purchase but this seems to be true for most hotels and for Paris in general. When we asked, the hotel staff did provide us with two trays of ice and sometimes we would get cups of ice from the McDonald's next to the hotel so it wasn't so bad.

      • Older travelers

        The room is spacious, clean and tidy. The staff is really helpful. The location is great, as it is near to Metro station, and next to restaurants and shops.

        Have to carry my luggages from ground floor to First floor for checking in. The check in counter is located at first floor. Can only use lift from first floor onward.

      • Older travelers
        4.2

        Location just opposite metro - view on Tour Eiffel

        The room was very basic and oldish - barthroom quite dirty - breakfast not good value for money, better togo to one of the cafes near to the hotel or the boulangerie

      • Older travelers
        8.0

        Vibrant area close to La Guerre market area with lots of cafes and restaurants. Direct access to Le Metro outside front door.

        Traffic noise did wake us early.

        The hotel staff was extremely nice and the rooms were very clean. I stayed in the Parisienne Room which has a balcony that was perfect. I particularly enjoyed this location as it is close to the rer b train and Denfert-Rochereau Metro stop as well as the 14eme arrondissement is a great spot in Paris!

        Not a dislike just a fact that the lobby is on second floor....must take flight of stairs to main desk...was not a problem for me but if you are loaded down with luggage it will take a few trips up and down the stairs.

      • Group of friends
        6.2

        Well located for seeing the sights.

        You have to climb a tricky flight of stairs before you get to the reception (not particularly good for people with mobility problems) Lift only worked intermittently (reception said repair man coming tomorrow! But never did) and we were on the eighth floor !!! Room a little basic on facilities I.E. only one mirror in the bathroom and no others, shower very small and in fact almost impossible to get in and close the door.

      • Group of friends
        6.6

        The hotel is fairly new. It has ac, breakfast, and a nice lounge with a big tv. The staff there is very helpful and is willing to help you with your questions. Also, the room is in a decent size. Compared with other budget hotels, you can still have room to walk around after opening your luggages. Btw, it has free internet and right at the entrance of a metro station and a market. Very convenient.

      • Couple
        8.8

        Very nice hotel with a good price. The rooms were just the size required and expected being in Paris. The surroundings perfect, easily located near city centre, with a Metro stop just in front of the hotel and a few meter from rer trains. We loved the neighborhood with plenty of places to have lunch, buy food, etc. The best, the people working at the hotel. Thank you from the pregnant Spanish coup0le.

        Forget about the hotel if you need a wheelchair or similar. No accesibility at all. Plenty of stairs just to reach the reception (which we suffered being my wife pregnant).

      • Single

        I am Japanese in my 40. Staff is very friendly and nice. Location is very close to subway and RER station. You can get the hotel from the airport easily.There are many restaurants around. Price is reasonable. I will stay this hotel when I have a chance to visit Paris again. I didn't have breakfast, so I cannot comment on it.

        Nothing worse

      • Couple
        5.0

        Cafes on the corner outside serve fantastic food

        Be warned the glamour stops after the grand entrance. note the room sizes, they are normal tiny Paris rooms. The pictures paint a rosier picture of the rooms than reality. No coffee/tea in room. I had thought the balcony would provide a setting for romantic breakfasts but with one chair in the room and space for just one on a scummy balcony, this idea quickly disappeared. You'll get used to it but be warned about the initial disappointment when you walk into the room. published rate at reception was the same as what I paid on Booked.net - poor value.

      • Single

        the location was good

        the reception was in the first floor and there was no lift

      • Single
        9.2

        The friendly and efficient staff spoke English but gladly tolerated my attempts to speak French.

        In the bathroom, a wall-mounting for the shower head would have been nice.
