Marble floors, 19-century furniture, and warm colorful walls greet guests inside the Hotel Aviatic Saint Germain in Paris, an elaborate boutique venue and the former home of Marquise de Maintenon, wife of King Louis XIV. Find inspiration in this Left Bank retreat where musicians, painters and writers have hung out since 1856. Accommodations range from the Triple Prestige, to the Prestige and Traditional, and although architect F. Foucaut made renovations to the building, its interiors are still rich with chic Parisian heritage. Parking in the area can be a challenge, but the Hotel Aviatic offers drivers garage space (daily charges apply).

Neighborhood

The Hotel Aviatic Saint Germain's location in the Left Bank is certainly an attractive feature. Watch the world go by from nearby Parisian cafes with a sweet pastry and a cup of French coffee, browse historic book shops, and explore museums and galleries like Musee du Montparnasse and Musee Bourdelle. Less than half a mile away is the Tour Montparnasse climb the tower at sunset to really allow the 'City of Light' to capture your imagination. Souvenirs ranging from kitschy to well-crafted can be found at the renowned department store, Le Bon Marche. In essence, Saint Germain is a university district with a youthful ambience and a historic heart.

Excellent hotel, very chic decor, friendly staff. Good location for food, drink & Metro station at Montparnasse. Minor gripes - some hooks for coats would be good, as would a mirror accessible from a plug socket.

Wonderful Service!

The location of this hotel makes for easy access to the major attractions. It’s officially in the 6th but positioned for easy walking access to the 5th, 7th and the 14th districts. The Montparnasse and St Placide metro stations are only a couple of blocks away but we strolled to most places. The service was stellar and is what makes this hotel stand out for us! They are always ready to help with reservations or recommendations and made our airport transportation easy and reasonable! The room was laid out well and kept very clean, and the breakfast buffet was well stocked and fresh. We would definitely recommend this hotel.

Very enjoyable stay - highly recommended!

Rooms were perfectly clean and tastefully decorated - a bit small by US standards, but that is normal in Paris. I was in room 247 - fourth floor, and loved it. No issue with street noise, although in all rooms you can occasionally feel the rumble of the Metro trains - not enough to be bothersome. There was a safe in the room, and my ultralight laptop fit right in it, which was nice. My friend was in the one-bedroom apartment and that was also very nice. Location is close to Metro St. Placide, Falguiere, Pasteur, and of course Montparnasse, and taxis are abundant at each corner. The best thing about my stay was the staff. They were all wonderfully friendly and helpful. Fanny and Baptiste (sp?) were especially willing to jump in and help our struggling French, and everyone spoke some English. They were uniformly professional, warm and welcoming.

Very helpful staff

Hotel Aviatic was a very pleasant hotel. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Rooms were small but very clean and stylish. The hotel was somewhat hard to find because the address doesn't need the Rue de Rennes street mentioned. Location was great for the Open bus tour route (which is highly recommended) but too far from the attractions to walk.

"Away from the Tourist Trade"

Located in the SW section of the 6th arrondisement on the Left Bank sits the Hotel Aviatic. Ten minutes from the Gare Montparnasse( Air France bus drop off/pick up for CDG airport) A small but comfortable hotel with a very helpful and gracious staff. Close to several Metro stations that grant you quick and efficent access to all of the city. Easy walking to neighborhood cafes, restaurants and shops. If your French is not the best, do not worry, Parisians are gracious and helpful. English is widely understood but knowing a few French phrases (especially pertaining to hello, goodbye and thank you) goes a long way.

If you enjoy museums, as I do, then Paris is a great destination and the Paris Pass (Museum Pass/Metro Pass) is a must.

Very comfortable

Other Paris hotels I've used before have provided a room that was not much more than a bed and a bathroom: i.e., a space where you don't want to spend any more time than is absolutely necessary,. The Aviatic was much, much nicer than that. The room was clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful. I spent 8 nights here and was very happy indeed.
